Discovering Caite Morgan.....

Today a “friend” has finally admitted to me what has been going on about a situation that they know had been confusing me and concerning me for a while and today it has sent my world and mind into a bit of a spin.

There’s the relief that my judgement was right and I knew that something was wrong and something didn’t quite make sense…and then there was the hurt and disappointment that the person put me through something unnecessarily express how I feel about things that have happened because I don’t think I could truly believe that someone could be like they have. Even now I can’t fully comprehend it and now there is the feeling of… hmm…well let’s just say they’ve given me “food for thought”.  It has made me re-assess certain aspects of my life and made me realise that I need some form of outlet and self-discovery.

I know, I know, you look at me and you make the judgement that I’m all about partying, clothes and make up and that I don’t look like I’m going to have too much depth about me. Wrong! People who know me will know that I am a sensitive person, I have a very caring nature and that people’s actions affect me more than they realise.  I’m not a hard insensitive b**** despite my exterior…I also have a thing about not settling for things in life and look to better myself and I realise that new situations and cultures are the place to do that.
Having spending my day talking about my feelings, thoughts and general ambitions with my best friend I have decided that once my course at uni is over I’m out of here.

I need “Caite” time, I need to get out of the place that I have spent the last 5-6 years.  Don’t get me wrong I love where I live, I love who I live with and will be returning to our house and to those amazing girls I call my best friends.  I’m lucky that they support and love me, don’t try to change me and encourage me to be Caite, all quirks and imperfections included.

I am also lucky to have an ambitious best friend and one that wants to go on an adventure and while we don’t look like the stereotypical girls to go backpacking, we are planning to do just that.  We are going to do something that we haven’t done before and we have spent the day planning our route and boy do we have a great route planned.  One that really allows us to see a lot of the world and to discover a part of the world we don’t really know much about but places we are sure to fall in love with for all different reasons.

Adventure buddy and best friend :-)

We have such a long list of places that we’re planning on being gone all summer, I would imagine gone from May until the end of August…here are the places we plan to go:
Nairobi – Johannesburg – Capetown – Mumbai – Varanasi – Kathmandu – Bangkok - Hong Kong - Angkor Wat – Saigon -Ko Samui – Phuket – Penang – Fiji - Kuala Lumpar –Bali – Auckland – Brisbane – Sydney - Tahiti  - Easter Island  - Lima - Buenos Aires - San Francisco - New York – Toronto

This is something that is now motivating to get my uni work done something to focus on and to help get over what happened with my “friend” and just explore the world and experience the unknown and embrace the culture and discover more about Caite Morgan.

Girls night, a fun night was had by all haha

Oh what a night! Haha

Nearly 3 weeks of not drinking and then a girl’s night last night, what a great time.

The first double vodka redbull at home went down very easily and before I knew…I was on my 3rd or possibly 4th haha.

Uni work has pretty much consumed my life over the last few weeks and I’ve been a good girl not going out etc so it was really nice to just forget about uni for a night and have a good time with my friends.

I’m not actually sure what I’m doing awake and up as though I haven’t been drinking because I only got to bed about 5:30am…I think…the night started off with drinks at home and then headed out, then after the bar we came back to the house, carried out drinking, did a little sing star and generally had a good time haha.  I think if someone else would have stayed up with her, my friend wokuld still be up drinking now! Haha.

Just a few pics of the night, sadly no video like a few months ago haha:

Maybe I should shame my friends and I and make the video common knowledge and on public display haha....

A little bit of fun nothing more than that, we're under no illusion that we can't sing and that we are dancing like fools.  I'm sure there will be some sour faced people out there ready to criticise but it's called fun haha.

I'm warming up my vocal chords Neil haha:

Hope everyone is having a good weekend so far.

Caite :-) xo

Back with a new look and a new blog...

I decided to start a new blog and re-vamp the layout and do something a little different to the one that I had before.  I like the style of my blog even more than before because I feel it’s a little brighter and uses a lot lighter colours than before.

The other blog is still there but is open to only a few select people, that way it keeps some of the information that was written in it away from prying eyes haha.

It’s been a busy week or two.  I have been a little preoccupied with uni work the last little while and since my friend’s birthday I haven’t been out partying or anything like that.  Now is the time I’m putting in a lot of work on the final pieces of work over the next few months for my Masters.  The weeks of going out a couple of times throughout the week haven’t disappeared; they are just temporarily on hold.

I have been racking up the hours in the uni library, I’ve been getting there at around 8:30am and not leaving until 6pm sometimes later, I feel like my eyes are going square some days haha. I did make the biiiiiiiig mistake of going to the mall this week when it was the school holidays and the place was full of kids.  I have no idea what I was thinking, flash backs to Christmas came flooding back and it’s like I could feel my stress levels rising so high haha.  I was so glad when my friends and I left the mall and I was back in the sanctity of my own world haha.

The last couple of days I have been struggling with getting a decent nights sleep and I'm not sure why.  I seem to go a few weeks of sleeping really well during the night and then I have a few really bad nights sleep.
so, I decided to be productive, I have been swimming early this morning, went to the mall quickly and to the supermarket and have just been listening to some music.
