In South Australia, we don’t have Boxing Day, we have Proclamation Day because South Australia was proclaimed as a state on the 26th of December. At least, that’s what I remember without Googling.

I’m at uni again, trying to knock the next assessment piece over. It’s due on the 5th of January, which seems like eons away, that’s next year! I know that the time between now and then will go quickly though, so while I have the time, I’ll get it done! A and I had a [...]
