Business Class...yeah baby!

So yesterday I flew business class for the very first time. My dad upgraded my ticket to Melbourne with his air points and now I'm here!

Airport: You don't have to wait in long queue's and checking through customs is much faster.
Lounge: So it is a really nice and spacious area, lots of seats and tables. There is a nice dining area where you can help yourself to the food, and a very nice selection of drinks at the help yourself bar.

I tried a few things like mini shepards pie (good), chicken with cheese (dry), Slices of eye fillet with spring onions (yum) and Cold smoked salmon with apple and radish salad (yum). I down those with a couple of CC and drys.

Also in the lounge is a very lavish bathroom with showers and grooming areas. Towels, toothbrush and combs etc. are all provided.

Seat: The leg space! You can see immediately why you pay at least double for the ticket and it's because you get twice the space. The chair can vibrate and recline fully. Please watch this in-flight demo.

Service: Pretty much the service is amazing. You get a lot of one to one service. They are very friendly, know you by your last name, take your orders on paper and then serve it to you. None of this drag a cart and block up the lane crap.

Food: Pretty decent menu. I forgot to take pictures of the main courses tho =(
I got to have my cousin's dinner as he wasn't hungry, so I order for me Prawns and salmon salad and the Ricciole pasta with spinach and ricotta cheese (win) and I also ordered two desserts (win).

Lemon Tart but It was really a Lemon Cheesecake

So my first ever flight on business class was awesome. If I was only ever going one way to somewhere I would definitely consider it. It can get really costly though if you go both ways.

Hate is love. Love is hate.

I love to sleep. I hate that I have to sleep.

I love to eat. I hate that I have to eat.

I love to love. I hate that love is far away.

I am so addicted to the internet it is not funny. You would find me in the fetal position if I went without it for more than a day.

Photo Challenge: Day 1 and 2

My friend Megan put this on her blog and I thought I might give it a go. It is for the month of June. I did miss out yesterday, so two photo's today!

Me in my classroom. Look at the 3D shapes in the background!

I have quite a few t-shirts from threadless. This is definitely one of my favourites and the only yellow shirt I own.

What is life?

I love my job.

I teach year 3 children, which means they come to be at age 6 or 7, and leave at the end of year age 7 and 8. I often tell people I love my job and that I am so happy to talk about my job and what I do, what shenanigans my children do. Yes, I do call them my children, all 28 of them.

I love my job. Sometimes I think it is what keeps me going day to day.

Outside of my job, I have good friends. I have money to spend on what I want, but often I feel like it doesn't mean much. I don't have anyone to look after and am too old...and not old enough to be looked after. I just don't have a responsibility outside of school life. Seems sad right?

I'm not sure if this is my quarter life crisis. I haven't had the urge to buy big things. Yet I feel that school life is what keeps me going even if it is over worked and you have to deal with crappy parents sometimes.

I hope I find my equilibrium soon.
