Freudian Slips

A Freudian Slip will never cease to humor me. It’s pretty clear that Freud is a bit of a nutter but according to him, these verbal slips are linked to the unconscious mind.

So the other day at work (which is super busy on account of The Avengers) as i was innocently ripping tickets and directing customers to their cinema I had to repeat an almost-identical phrase hundreds of times:

Hi there! How’s it going? … Okay, you’ll be in cinema 6 up the hallway to your left!

When its that hectic at work, I can’t help but jumble up my words.

Hi there! how’s it going? … *looks at ticket* oh, Hi there! you’ll be in cinema 6 up the hallway to your left!

I promise I’m not crazy. Then all of a sudden, out of nowhere:

Hi there! how’s it going? Okay, you’ll be in cinema sex…

Woah now, really? My initial thought was to diverge into a New Zealand accent:

Just in cinema sex up the hallway brew!

No.

But still, I’ve got to admit, Freudian slips are pretty damn hilarious.

Obligatory Introductory Post

I’m a self-confessed lurker. That’s right, one of those people who sit at their laptop, browsing sites such as facebook, twitter, youtube, livejournal etc., watching and reading timelines as they automatically update. Now before you conjure up an image in your mind of a middle aged tubby guy with a beard, hunched over at his laptop spilling potato crisp crumbs on his keyboard as he watches his dashboard intently; that’s not me. Rather, I’m an 18 year old girl from Australia, who loves the internet.

…I’m going to stop me right there. I’m trying so hard not to make this sound cliche and cringey but it’s much harder than I thought, so bare with me please.

Okay, so back to being a lurker. Yes, I’m one of those.
“Lurkers don’t create WordPress accounts and write ‘obligatory introductory’ posts, though!”, You may say. Well, right you are. So why am I doing this? Because I don’t want to be a passive lurker anymore; I want to be active.

Another reason I’ve created this blog is because the other day, as I was doing my daily lurk of the web, I yahoo-answer searched ‘how to land an internship’. That’s when it occurred to me that since I do want to land a career in the media industry at some point in my life, I should probably have a place of my own where I can direct future employers. (Hey future-employers, hey!)

What am I doing with my life other than lurking, you ask?
I’m a university student, studying a Bachelor of Communications/ Media. Some classes I’m taking this semester include editing, cinema studies and writing. I also have a part-time job at a cinema, so when I’m not lurking or studying, that’s where I am (you’ll probably hear about my experiences as a ‘cinema worker’ in entries to come).

I’m random, weird and up until today I’ve been a thinker, but from here on in, I’m going to be a do-er. Goodbye lurking and hello vanity!

My name’s Ellyse, by the way.
