God Save the Queen! (and let me pass the exam)

Rather annoying, when you have the long weekend but you know you’re gonna spend it over books, notes and computer. Especially, if you are passionate procrastinator. It feels even worse, because you know it is all your fault. Instead of slogging through all that books, you could have been in Grampians or watching penguins on Phillip Island or whatever. And let me tell you, the winter here is a joke. I mean, it doesn’t feel like winter at all. More like autumn. Just perfect for a one day gateway. Just because I am in this very educational mode, I am going to share some information with you.

The Queen’s Birthday is a public holiday celebrated in most states and territories in Australia on the second Monday in June, making for a much-looked-forward-to June long weekend (for those, who can actually deal with their assignments EARLIER and plan something fun to do with that extra free time…). Queen Elizabeth II is the constitutional monarch of 16 sovereign states and the Supreme Governor of the Church of England. She was born on 21 April 1926 but her birthday is celebrated on a separate date. She has been Queen since 1952 and is currently the second-longest reigning British monarch, the longest being Queen Victoria who reigned for 63 years.

Why can we not celebrate president’s birthday in Poland (idea worth considering)?

Anyhow, because it is a public holiday, getting a cup of coffee was slightly more difficult than usually. Melbourne made me an absolute coffee ADDICT, so a day without it, is a day wasted (and it is not an overstatement, just visit this city). So, we ended up with the worst coffee I have ever tried, which made me feel a bit sick and not very enthusiastic about the cramming. But frankly speaking, have we ever been enthusiastic about that?

    “passionate procrastinator” – oh, Kinga…

    Can we please celebrate the Queen’s birthday when we’re done with our exams? I feel we’ve got to properly celebrate it.
