Sigh, I hate mondays. And I also have a thing against essays and computers. Last night I sat down to finish off my essay, you know, touch it up, add a few things, delete the repeated stuff. At about nine or ten last night I’m pretty excited because it’s looking pretty good, and Ive had a brain wave and it actually sounds like a university level essay (I suck at essays, have I mentioned this?) and so I go to save it. Control + s. What happens? My computer freezes. So I’m sitting in front of my computer and I just cry, because I know that what I started out with is pretty damn close to crap and all the good stuff I just managed to pour into it has just been lost. I reset the silly little piece of ^%&$ and pray that something was salvaged, but no. Of course. My luck is like that sometimes, you see. This morning, feeling like crap because I have a cold and my eyes are extra puffy from my being a silly ass cry baby last night and I have to hand in what I know is a ‘C’ paper because I couldn’t recapture my brainwave from earlier in the day.
There. I think I’m done bitching. About the paper anyway. My ICQ’s not working right today it seems. Doesn’t want to connect for some reason, and I want to talk to Nomes. Walli too. John’s at work. He wasn’t supposed to work today, but Steve phoned this morning at about 7:30 and asked him to come in. I was comfy too, drat it. John’s so patient with me. Last night, I didn’t even want anything to do with me because I was such a blithering idiot. I guess it is stress, but I felt like such a baby for crying over an essay. There must be something wrong with me though, I’m enjoying sleep and food far too much. Hell, I can’t even fit half my clothes properly anymore. in fact I think I need to go up a cup size if you can imagine. Amber will be mad at me for that, but that’s besides the point. I could say it was John’s excellent culinary skills that have contributed to my added poundage, but I think it’s more likely because my eating habits have changed. I used to eat at most two meals a day. I used to climb a mountain at school every day at Malaspina. I used to live off popcorn rather than square meals. At least I’m healthier.
Anyway, enough lamenting. I’m starting to be a drag!
