I’m pretty happy with how much I accomplished today! Groceries, laundry, dishes, made two awesome meals, got some photo editing done, read an entire novel, baked a treat for tomorrow, a bit of tidying (but not as much as I had planned) Phew. All that and a two hour nap earlier today haha.
Tomorrow will be a really nice day, as I’m going to be visiting my favourite photographer! We will mainly be sitting by the pool. I’ve been in a fair bit of pain recently so I’m hoping that some swimming will help a bit. I’m also hoping that his dog Chloe will chase him around the edge of the pool again so I can get some fun shots. Fingers crossed! Now if only he were home from today’s wedding shoot so we could confirm what train I’ll be taking lol! Guess I’ll go get ready for bed, then send him an email telling him to call me in the morning, oh dear.
This morning’s work (not my paid job, but the other one) got cut short thanks to a fantastic colleague so after I eat lunch I’m taking a nap (got up at 5:30!!), then I’ll be doing laundry, photoediting and packing for my mini trip this week to visit the very lovely setfiretotheraain. Oh and of course I will post some photos from yesterday :)
I might also write a short review of the novel that I finished today! It’s been a while since I’ve done any reading for fun. Obviously the logical thing to do is to give myself more writing to do haha.
Caribbean Festival (Carnival? Parade? Ahh screw it, Caribana!!) is this weekend… so inevitably, work is going to be a gongshow. I just know that nurses will be calling in sick… picking up caffeine before I get there to get me through the evening!
Tomorrow I’m away to visit my grandparents for the day! Should come home with some new photos :)
Slept a bit better last night, but im only up now because my brother made a lot of noise getting up for work. Gonna go back to sleep for a bit because I wont be home til from work til very late (evening shift plus public transit, ugh).
FIle this under snippets of my life that don’t matter to anyone else but I’m blogging about anyway lol.
Last summer I decided to make new curtains for my room so I bought some fabric. I was working two jobs though and didn’t end up doing anything with it since I was too tired.
My mum’s sewing machine is older than I am, and makes a ton of noise. To be completely honest, even at 20, I’m kind of afraid of it eating my fingers LOL. So, I’m going to try some no-sew curtains next week since I’ll have a bus pass again and can get to a craft or fabric store. The link goes to a pretty simple tutorial.
Do you remember a few weeks ago when I wrote about SoFino’s shop filled with beautiful felted soaps? Well, I just came across an awesome tutorial over at craftgawker that shows you how to make your own little felted soaps! Get yourself some wool batting, soap and some hot water (easy peasy) and follow these instructions.
If anyone takes a stab at this and wants to share, I’d love to show them off on my blog. Happy Wednesday!
Cook either some pasta or pierogies so that I can pack a lunch and dinner for before/between exams tomorrow.
Water my tomato and cucumber plants.
Outline two essay question answers
I’m thinking that maybe I might leave home early tomorrow, so that I can walk around campus and take a few photos before my first exam. Somehow I failed to do that over the course of the last 3 months. Maybe it will keep my nerves down a little bit? I hope so. Hmm.
Might pop by tumblr and check things out again, maybe between 4 + 5, but for now I’m logging out and disconnecting the internet lol.
So tired but so happy right now. Got my essay on seasonal agricultural workers back, and my prof is so nice I just wanted to give him a hug! Of course I didn’t, but I’m just so excited! He said it was smooth like butter! (LOL). Also checked the mail today…. squeeeee!
I’m going to have dinner, make a concerted effort to study and then relax a bit and edit some photos to queue up.
I got 45 minutes of sleep this morning (during a wicked thunder storm), but I went to school and got the essay handed in. That’s a relief. On my way home, I got a voicemail asking me to please, please come into work because someone called sick and no one else could stay. It’s only 4 hours, from 8 til midnight… I should have said no, because I really need to study and sleep but of course, ever obliging me…. I said yes.
Took a nap that was meant to be 20 minutes but turned into over an hour and a half so now I feel decidedly ill. I’m off to the post office now, and then the library to study some before work. No message replies today because I don’t like blogging from work (though, technically I can). Sorry :(
On the lovely, hilarious side of things… my facebook status is currently “Working from 8-12, what did I get myself into?” My 14 year old stepbrother commented with “work.” Made me smile! I don’t see him often, so I forget that he can be so funny. <3
Catch you guys later tumblr! Day long study session with some classmates tomorrow, and two final exams on Thursday. Oi. If I can manage it tomorrow, I’ll queue a couple things on the photoblog to last til then.
Went to the grocery store and picked up some yummy snacks… trail mix, chocolate covered raisins, these peanut butter pretzels that look like little pillows, crackers, hummus and juice.
Now, back to fighting this essay!
(I was speaking with one of the nurses at work on Friday, and he suggested writing an essay as soon as its’s assigned, so that the excitement of the topic and all that is enough motivation to write. Definitely going to be trying that approach in the fall, but for now.. just gotta push myself!)
I said I would be off of tumblr until Friday, but I just had to vent for a moment…
13 hours til I hand this paper in, 40% of my grade (what the heck!?). Not done yet, and I do this to myself every time! Oh and either I have heat rash (it was 34 ish today/yesterday before humidity and will be 38 before humidity today/tomorrow) or I have a re-occurance of poison ivy. FML. Maybe there was still some plant oil left on my knapsack or something.
On the bright side… I got an extension til Sunday on the longer paper, and someone picked up my Monday shift so I’ll have more time to study for my two final exams next Thursday.
