This morning I washed all the dishes in my sink, loaded and unloaded the dishwasher, sorted my laundry and started another load. I also organized my schedule FINALLY, made a list of textbooks I need to buy (to this point, because half of my classes are claiming I won’t need a textbook…) and got a truly solid start on organizing my room for classes.
And! I baked myself some cupcakes! Waiting for them to cool so I can ice them. Plain white cake with rainbow flakes. I wish I was more talented bakewise.
Anyway! Whilst waiting for cupcake cooling, I’m going to enjoy some delicious sushi on my day off with a friend I have not seen in months! It’s a reward, partly for being so productive this morning and partly for how awesome my good friend is.
the bus ride almost convinces me to turn around. without fail someone tries to tell me their life story, or propositions me in a very inappropriate way. WHERE ARE THESE PEOPLE COMING FROM? It’s far too early for such behaviour.
I spend most of my shift reading (currently about the american mafia through the ages. I’m in the 80’s right now. EPIC time for the mafia)
I will fix someone’s watch who then discusses with me the merit of my chosen profession. Usually these people are seniors. Usually they are so so happy that a youngster like me is choosing to work in watch repair.
I consider how close to becoming doctor manhattan I truly am.
I consider the list of people I would take to mars were I to become dr manhattan
Two girls wander in, reminiscing about their drunken adventures from last night. A guy come in a few minutes later and stands behind them as the contemplate what to order. One girl is LOUDLY (cause apparently volume does not exist in anyone mind anymore) complaining to the other about this total sleaze at the bar.He kept buying her drinks and asking for her number and what have you.
Stop me if you know where this is going.
The guy was the sleaze from the bar. Who then gave her a verbal lashing, as she was apparently a total bitch, making huge advances and asking him to buy her more drinks, then hitting on his friend.
I still would have been more content with breakfast though.
I’m at a coffee place downtown because the power randomly decided to fail in my house today.
And it is noisy as all get out. I am an unwilling third person on the very loud date going on on the level above me. And the guy is just talking talking talking, all about himself, and I’m so tempted to get up and say to the young woman with him “TELL HIM ANYTHING ABOUT YOURSELF!” I am so tired of hearing about this guys adventures. He’s speaking at a volume which is in no way appropriate for a coffee place.
Additionally, I listened to a guy loudly bash a mother and her children to all the other patrons before I asked him to stop. SO IRRITATING!
This is why I should never venture outside the comfortable familiar. Had I just gone to get breakfast, I could have had a peaceful sit. Now, my drink is disappointing and my head hurts from the conversations around me.
Loud man is now YELLING into his cell phone. Someone doesn’t have the right paint.
Out of the blue, I got wicked sick this morning. And this mystery illness has been a joy all day. I’ve been alternating laying in bed trying to sleep with my stomach hating me, and sitting on the couch drinking copious amounts of water.
I feel so yucky, and now I’m glad I spent my day off yesterday being productive. Because today, I have not done a single productive thing today.
On that note: old magazines and cold water are an excellent help when I feel terrible.
Another post in case anyone is interested in helping the families of the fallen.
I’ve come to realize lately that events like weather travesties tend to spark more of a support system on tumblr (I’m disturbed that so many people who were thanking these men 4 months ago have given little regard to them now), but just in case.
For anyone that would like to help our community you can donate $10 to the Navy SEAL Foundation, text the word SEAL to 90999 and a one-time $10 charge will be added to your wireless bill or you can donate gift cards for supplies for the families. (WAWA,Target,Starbucks,Gas Cards,Walmart..) or money donations in the form of cards (Visa,Mastercard) to:
I have an essay due, which has already been extended by three days because of how intense the course has been. And it’s on 20th Century British Literature. And the assignment is a doozy.
And I was all pumped, cause I had a wicked thesis and a great start on the paper. And then the stupid professor used the entire backbone of my essay as an exam question!
And I’ve been so not down to finish, cause I know I should be changing the whole essay. And I just don’t want to face finishing it. Now the thing is due tomorrow by midnight, and I work for a while tomorrow, plus travel time, so I doubt I can get this beast done if I were to begin tomorrow.
But frankly, I’m a machine. And I just don’t wanna finish tonight.
In other news, I’m gonna lay around and relax after working hard today. And drink some tea with my delicious sub dinner.
