Graduation Ball

Today has been really hot in Brisbane. Temp was around 35oC (95oF). We took off to the shops to do a bit of Chrissy shopping and to get some relief from the heat.

I have volunteered to be on the fundraising committee for our Graduation Ball. It will be when we finish up next year around October. Basically we will be raising money to reduce the out of pocket expenses for the ball. This year we are thinking of having a casual BBQ the day after the ball as a "recovery" event. This will be open to our families and it will be a way to recognise the support we have had in getting to the end of our degrees. It should be great fun.

I would love to hear from any of you who have fundraising suggestions.

I'm so glad you commented on my blog because I found yours--you are really working hard down there! I am up to my ears in writing a paper and I have clinicals for the next 3 days, so I won't be reading much. However, I would love to link to your blog and read you again very soon. As soon as I can sit down again.

Hi, your blog is looking really good.... Lots of good writing in a very short time. I am glad you stopped by to my site so I could check your blog out. It's great for me to get a perspective from someone so far away! Keep it up.

Sell home-made treats for cheap in the lounges at your University.
I can't tell how many times I would have wanted something homecooked versus the stuff in the vending machine. I would have paid twice as much actually.
Good luck!

I'm really enjoying your writing! Thanks for leaving your comments on my blog, otherwise I wouldn't have found this great writing!

It's funny you mentioned the white christmas. I can't imagine a Christmas where the temperature outside is 95F. Wow! Very toasty!
