school ootd


So Im awake and its 5:30am in the morning.....why is it that when I plan to wake up early for exercise my eyes are bolted shut and it feels like I haven't had any sleep at all? Maybe its because I have 3 little house guests over. Its so fascinating working with Aboriginal kids... the amount of self autonomy they have is great some days....but then some days I'm like "Where the hell is your Mother?" and for my some of these little grade 1 kids...the answer is jail or in the communities living a life that doesn't really centre around the focus of THEIR child..... it makes me so mad.....and you wouldn't believe how wonderful these kids are....and how excited the get over a slice of cheese with a tomato sauce smiley face or a cup of Milo.

But back to the reason why I am awake....I got up and went to check on the three boys....because I wanted to see if they were okay...... and I was like.....how can their Mothers not have the same urge??? Anyways..... they are fine....I'm awake....so I guess its a WIN WIN huh? I have enough time to post this outfit! This is the kinda practical and comfortable stuff I wear to school each day......the skirt is the $2.50 one from Kmart, the top was free (I had bags of clothes that were donated and we were supposed to take them to another Aboriginal community but we couldn't fit it all so I found some cool stuff that I could have) the flats are really old also....I try not to bring too much stuff out here because it's too much to take home....and now that I only have 2 weeks left here.... I'm glad I didn't bring too much because I think I will be leaving a lot of it behind.

Big Love

  3. Hey Kiah,

    No I've been here for over a year but in my mind it has never been home...I would always work the term and head home for 2 weeks after every 10 weeks. I used to have some friends work out here with me...but now they have all left back to my side of Australia (east coast), I have decided to go home as well.... so Im out in the Western Australia desert at the moment...soon to be returning to sydeny in the next fornight... Im so excited to go home...but also sad to leave my kids aswell...
