When was the last time you did something for the first time?

Looking back at my week, I realised that I did something for the first time. First - that's the keyword. I joined my school magazine team this week. It was the first time I joined something of this sort. I don't know what brought on the madness in me to go for it, but I think it's just one of those things that just naturally pull you in. I love writing and photography with all my heart, and have this crazy dream to be a journalist one day, so I thought, "hey, maybe I should give this a go."

And I just went for it and put my name down. It's been a long time since I did something for the first time, and right now, typing this, it kinda feels good. And in with the goodness is a mix of anticipation and the disbelief that I actually went for it. The thing is, I'm always so comfortable with familiarity that I don't really get out of my comfort zone often. Joining my school magazine team is sort of taking that step out of my comfort zone, and as unsure as I am of what lies ahead, I'm loving the thrill and enjoying every minute at the same time. Writing this, I don't know if that's even possible, but it really is and feels incredibly surreal.

On another note, you're probably wondering, what's the deal with the photo?
Well, I went down to the city on Monday and bought myself a guitar, and am now learning how to play it. And don't let it fool you, playing guitar is actually not as easy as it looks! But it sure is fun. I've always wanted to learn the guitar, and it's now finally happening. As much as I love familiarity, I love learning new things. And now to add to the list, doing things for the first time.

What are these?

I've been finding these on some of my pegs lately while hanging out the laundry, and took this yesterday. I'm not sure what they are, but they sure are fascinating. Perhaps you can shed some light on what they are. So what do you think? And even if you don't know, have a guess anyway! Because, I, for one, have absolutely no clue and would love to hear what you think!

Lakes Entrance

Just recently, I went to Lakes Entrance, a tourist resort and fishing port located east of Victoria, about 4 hours drive from Melbourne. During the drive, you get to see the rural life in Australia and things that you don't see everyday, like farm houses, cattle and horses. You visit towns where everyone is so patient and nice, and seem to be in no rush to be anywhere. It was a refreshing experience for me, a suburban girl who has never lived in the country before.

Upon arrival at Lakes Entrance, we walked on the path by the sea, went onto the lookout point (as recommended by the locals) and explored around the town for a bit. It was a nice and relaxing trip, and I just had so much fun capturing every bit of Lakes Entrance I could in the time that I had. I would recommend Lakes Entrance to everyone. It's a great place to unwind, chill and relax.

I woke up especially early the next morning to catch the sunrise. Just standing there, viewing the sunrise in absolute silence with no one around, it was probably the highlight of my trip.
