Wine and Love: Four

It’s time for another instalment of Wine and Love created by Nora, and hosted by Suki. The concept is simple – each Thursday you post about what’s making you reach for the wine glass and what you’re loving.


  • Work: I’m afraid this is going to be on my wine list for a while.  It’s insane, I’m feeling really burnt out and really unappreciated and very, very underemployed.  I could go on, but I sound like a broken record.
  • School: Deja vu, n’est pas?  It’s been pretty intense, and the hours that I would usually give to school have been taken up by all the overtime I’m working at work.  By the time I’m done my 9-13 hour day, I’m ready to go home and sleep.  Not study, or participate in class or do homework.  Luckily, school will be over in a month.  I just hope to pass at this point.  Which is sad, cuz I’m used to getting HDs (That’s 85% or higher, in Aussie speak).



  • This is going to be vague, but ah, well.  Sometimes I do think things work out a certain way for a reason.  Sometimes, when something seems like the end of the world, something else will come out of it a little while later that proves that maybe the end of the world thing had to happen for something better, or something more helpful to happen.  I’m so glad this has been the situation in my case.
  • It’s my birthday! It’s kinda a wine and a love.  I have this strange anxiety about turning 30, which I am now a YEAR away from.  But I’m also looking forward to going to the pub for dinner tonight with friends and family.  I haven’t seen my BFF in a while and he’s coming along, I’m super excited about that.  And then on Saturday, I’ll be seeing the rest of my family and my cousins.  Really looking forward to that.
