sarandamusic is a thing again

SILT #13
If you type "sarandam" into the YouTube search bar, it autocorrects to "sarandamusic". WHATTTT?! Aww yeah.


Sara and I recorded for the first time in a while.
Lotsa fun times. Everytime we get together to record, we end up laughing really hard at boogers or something. It's a good time.

We're looking to record a couple more times before I leave.

Which will be fun. :)

It's been a long week.
I'm looking forward to a good lie down tonight.

Hope you're well.

I still know how to swim.


us talking about a patient she saw.


"Don't be hating on Santa Claus, his work is finally catching up to him."
"Actually, he is kinda like Santa Claus. He's very well read."
"You think Santa Claus is well read?!"

She knows Santa better than I do. Lookathat.

Hope you're all well.


this is how most of our conversations go

I memorised the password to our temporary internet source which is a seemingly random string of numbers and letters.
I am turning into my father.


"I still believe you."
"Thanks. Your faith in me is inspiring."
"Moving mountains."
"More revolutionary than the wheel."
"Healing diseases."
"It's like discovering fire all over again."
"Or electricity. Cause I'm modern."
"Electricity wasn't really "discovered" though.
We should go swimming regularly."
Yes. Absolutely."
"A real treat."
"A blessing in disguise."
"Cool beans."
"I know, but Candace from Phineas and Ferb said that once and I almost spit out the food in my mouth."
"Nope. Regardless of the source, it remains unacceptable."
"Does that mean you win?"
"Yes. Indubitably."


Hope you're well.

God is pretty darn cool

I really like potatoes.


So today has been pretty uneventful event-wise, but I cool things have happened to me.

I'm ungrateful.
I'm really ungrateful when I want to be. Mostly, the ungratefulness stems from my inability to see past a moment in time. I selfishly think about myself and how I feel, blinding me to the bigger picture.

Sometimes, I'm super grudging when it comes to walking Jazz. Don't get me wrong, I love that dog to bits, but it's really uncomfortable in the humidity. Ants and other bugs like biting, and sometimes I get scratched up by branches that have fallen from the trees.

Some of you may know that I've been struggling with some lower body joint pain which makes getting in and out of chairs kind of annoying. I've been using my arms mostly to manoeuvre myself.

Today, it was blazing hot. From the minute I woke up, I started sweating and have been complaining all day about how gross I feel and my headache.

Tuesday is Adam has music class day.
I was dreading going to help mum with him because of the weather. It's been smouldering outside.

But I went anyway.

As I got into the car, I was informed we needed to stop by the park to get a stick for part of Adam's Zulu tribe costume for International Day at his school tomorrow.


I took them to the place where I knew branches fell and got out of the car, picked up a huge stick, broke it down to size and then ripped all the small branches still attached.
Then I got back into the car.
The whole process took two minutes.

Which is when I realised some things.
1. If I didn't walk Jazz a lot, I wouldn't have known where to find big branches
2. If I hadn't been lifting my body out of chairs with my arms, I would have struggled a lot more
3. If it wasn't that hot, the wood wouldn't have been brittle and come apart as easily
4. And if I wasn't there with them, my mother would have had to struggle with that.

I'm putting this up so I don't forget.
We're so limited by our human perspective. Certain things happen for a reason. God doesn't shoot His will at you willy nilly.

This is fantastic.
Not that that stick was a life changing thing that happened. But it did open my eyes to the fact that I shouldn't be so quick to run my mouth.

There is more.
There is always more.

Hope you're well.

can't stand the rain by the rescues

How to cook bacon in the microwave.
(Contact me personally if you want details.)


So today, I spent three hours napping on various surfaces in my house.
Which is nice, because that's something you can't do in college. The last time I was falling asleep on surfaces was in my Centrality of Media class.

It wasn't a bad class. It was just too early.

Nose is on a plane home tonight.
(Too soon. :s)

And now I don't know what to do with myself. Not because she's gone or anything. Just because it's late and I need to be up tomorrow really early, but I don't want to sleep.
I just wanna stay up all night.

But I've promised people that I'm going to take care tonight.
So tonight I will take care and go to bed in a bit. :)

So yes.

That is all.

Hope you're all well.
