Made some neat cupcakes, did errands, four loads of laundry, a bunch of dishes, applied for scholarships, did some reading, had three distinct meals, and found a website that I really like and will be a huge help to me in the coming months. Holy productivity, batman.
So I put on some weight this summer due to the medication I was on for poison ivy (plus freshman 15/commuter meals) and while I lost a little bit of the weight after going off the meds, I’m still carrying a good chunk of weight that I didn’t have last year. Which means most of my pants don’t fit comfortably. I need to get new jeans (or maybe just some yoga pants and sweatpants??) but I always feel guilty about buying new clothes. Is it normal to feel guilty about spending money? :(
Also, headache like woe.
In positive news, today I found out once again just how patient my favourite photographer is. And two things that were really stressing me out about work got resolved today, so that’s good.
Had my first driving lesson in a few weeks. Just a refresher, but it was raining and I’ve never driven in the rain before. I’m frustrated with a few things about driving and driving lessons, despite going to what is supposedly the best driving school.
Today I also photographed part of my brother’s rugby match (despite the rain) and did some other moderately productive things but was not sufficiently prepared for volunteering tonight. Plus it was stiflingly hot in the gym so I came home a little flustered.
Early morning: art history and immigration studies tomorrow, plus lots of commuting.
Don’t even know why I’m so stressed but I am. Left over from work today, maybe. Going to try and sleep, but I’ll have to pretend I’m back at (in?) yesterday. Bliss is lying in the arms of the one you love and having a dog sleeping beside you.
Decide that you will not be jaded. Be indecisive about most things but certain about this. Say to yourself, ‘I will not be a jaded twenty-something, I will have self-respect, I will become a minimalist and move to New York and I will never complain, I will…
Usually, I just get annoyed or frustrated but it’s been a while since I’ve been quite so angry. I’m very glad I’ll have a week of photography and hanging out with my friend in a province to which I’ve never been to cool my head.
Je suis revenue juste à temps pour le hockey. Je me suis vite changée, j’ai kické mes jeans sur mon lit et enfilé mes gros sweatpants gris et mes pantoufles en léopard, et j’ai couru vers le salon. Je me suis enroulée dans mon snuggie, Gustave s’est couché sur mes jambes, et j’ai pitonné…
Le match qui déroule au moment est vraiment bon! (Et j’aime beaucoup ton photo!)
From the air, as above, the tents in the forested slopes of eastern Paktika Province’s mountains look not much different from tents that serve as so-called “bed-down sites” for Haqqani fighters transiting the trails from Pakistan to Kabul. This is especially true at a fast pass in a Black…
Really interesting. Hopefully I’ll be able to find the article once it’s published.
Could not for the life of me get out of bed this morning, forgot my toast on the counter before I left, prof turns interesting history into boringness and can’t work computers. Sitting in a freezing cold library, but have to catch a shuttle to the other (much crappier) campus. Hopefully getting my poli sci books back from the girl I lent them to (bad idea? maybe) and of course I have a presentation on immigration today but since I did the reading on Tuesday, I have absolutely zero recollection of what it was about.
On the bright side… this afternoon, I am going to vote, make my pumpkin pie cheesecake and go to bed early. Tomorrow, I finally get to see my favourite photographer. Saturday I pack, Sunday I work and have Thanksgiving dinner AND on Monday morning I leave for New Brunswick.
Today, my apartment mate’s friend put up a suicide note on her livejournal. What could we do about this? They have not talked in months, there is not enough information to track her on any of her accounts from deviantart, livejournal, youtube. Can not do it. It’s been three hours since it has been…
If you’re going to be a lazy dick and ask me to do your work because you’re too dumb to look at a calendar, at least do me the courtesy of spell checking your inane email and using a question mark to finish your question ffs.
I’m supposed to watch some French music videos for class tomorrow but my head hurts so much I’m nauseous, and my eye is twitching. According to my friend’s old Sikh grandma, since it’s my left eye, it’s good luck but I think it’s just plain annoying.
“October 1, 2011 - TAMPA, FL - The Occupy Wall Street movement may have just received an unexpected surprise – United States Army and Marine troops are reportedly on their way to various protest locations to support the movement and to protect the protesters. Army serviceman Ward Reilly posted the following on Facebook: “I’m heading up there tonight in my dress blues. So far, 15 of my fellow marine buddies are meeting me there, also in Uniform. I want to send the following message to Wall St and Congress: I didn’t fight for Wall St. I fought for America.”—
