This is the end...

So this is it! I'm finished! University life is pretty much over as all I have left are my exams. I had my final classes ever yesterday. It was a strangely bitter-sweet experience to realise that five years have passed so quickly.

As I walked towards Law School, my iPod shuffled onto "This is the last time" by Keane.... how fitting.

With class finished, Emma, Suzanna and I celebrated by opening a bottle of champagne (which Suz did by nearly shooting a poor bystander in the head)!

Our lecturer Shae was also VERY happy to come and have a drink with us! When we asked her to come and have a drink with us, she charged up through the seating screaming "BOOZE!"

Helen is also finishing, and looks as excited as the rest of us.

... and once I got outside... I just couldn't help but jump for joy!

I'm almost there. I'm almost done. I'm almost finshed.

I had my second last class EVER today. It was my last ever tutorial as well. After an intriguing hour of intellectual property law, I bid goodbye to my lecturer/tutor for the last time....

... too bad it wasn't the final.

Our indoor soccer season has come to an end, and our team finished a respectable 3rd. We played most of the season leading the competition only to fall to third when we drew a game. We lost our first final, but we were able to salvage something by winning the 3rd place play off! The final score was 3-1, and Rohit scored a hat-trick.

Rohit decided that since he was our lead scorer for the season, he needed to display his "golden boot" for everyone to see.

All in all, it was a very fun season for us. We scored ALOT of goals.

Nick ended up being awarded the "MVP" award, proudly sponsored by Coopers....

We all enjoyed a few beers at the end of our match by watching the Grand Final... the winners ended up winning 6-2!!! We really should have been there... at the very least we would have put up a fight. The way things go I suppose.

It's elementary!

The end of my university days is fast approaching...

For some of my friends it has already come!

For Adam and Geoff, this tutorial was their final class at university ever!

Don't they look pensive as the end slowly comes....

However, for Emma and myself there are still a few more days to come. Emma seems to be taking it in her stride nicely though.

And let's not forget Lesley... her final class ever and she's still front and centre! Such a nerd.....

We're a happy team at Hawthorn

Look what I bought online the other day.

My very own Hawthorn guernsey. It's a heritage styled one as well, modelled on the 1980s styles, so it's got a collar unlike the modern day ones.

Lil' Nithya came back from Singapore and look what she brought back for me! So thoughtful of her isn't it?

Tasty pink 7up! Always refreshingly sweet.

I think summer is definitely coming.

I bought my first mango of the year today! The smell of it is penetrating into every corner of my room. It can't be long until cherries and peaches are back as well!

I wonder if this wave of warm whether has anything to do with global warming.....

Start spreading the news!!!!!!!!

I'm leaving today...

Well not quite. However, my boss recently gave me a stack of his old copies of "The New Yorker", which make me very happy. I don't get to read this magazine much, and I'm generally too cheap buy it. When I do read it, I am usually just going through it one article at a time while standing around in a news agency.

I'd clearly rate it as my second favourite magazine... (after TIME magazine of course!)

Curry in a hurry?

Who needs to have a chilli cook-off when you can have a CURRY cook-off!?!?!? It was recently Guv and Stead's b'day, so for a party we all decided to have a nice big curry party. It turned out pretty well! Lots of food (even more beer) and lots of fun!

Doesn't everyone look happy????

I wonder what these birds are?

I was wandering outside my college a few days ago, when I noticed that a flock of birds had landed near the feeder. They were strange looking birds though, I have never seen anything like them.

I wonder what type of birds they are....

Up there Cazaly!

I love AFL! I have since I was young. Growing up in Melbourne, it was the one thing that everyone had in common. I still remember how shocked I was when I first moved to Canberra and was forced to realise that when people spoke of "football"... they were actually referring to Rugby.....

So, this weekend was the Grand Final weekend! Swans against the Eagles, always an exciting encounter. My team didn't even make the finals this year (... again), so I was a Swans supporter for the day. Watching the game with the Comyns boys, I don't think it would have been possible not to have been a Sydney supporter.

They had a nice BBQ spread set up and we went for a kick at half time. Unfortunately, the Swans went down by only ONE point.... poor Angus, Dave and Scotty.... they were shattered.

Before I left, I was able to grab one of the bottles of the amazing wine that Scotty had brought down from the winery for Sarah's birthday. The bottles are amazingly beautiful aren't they?
