While waiting for Jannah to knock off from work in the evening I popped over to Starbucks for a tall cuppa iced white mocha, since it would be 20 mins till I meet her. Finished my coffee in 15mins, walked out to head to the train station and realised that it was pouring outside without me knowing it.
Rain is such a nuisance when you have no umbrella or when there’s no shelter, ‘cept when you’re deep in slumber or snuggling up to a loved one in bed. Neither of which I’ve been able to enjoy these days. I’m missing my hornet and feeling a little forlorn.
Had a splendid weekend before catching the Monday blues again - spent Friday evening with the girls over sushi, met my primary school mates who are mostly so impressively smart and yet humble, and spent quality time with ym on a Sunday afternoon/ evening ♥ Just finished watching Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close on my macbook and I am turning in soon. Another 5 days of work before the weekends creep by again. G’night
Almost died of exhaustion from work today. Mad sore calves and blisters on my foot too :( On my way home I just felt like I would collapse any time soon.
Then almost died a second time when I went for my brow appointment after work. I have been going to Browhaus to get my brows TWEEZED/ THREADED for years, and each time it has been painful but of a tolerable level. Today’s was just pain amplified by a thousand times. To make things worse I couldn’t stop sneezing and had to interrupt the beautician (?) several times to blow my nose. Yarp.
I’m actually pretty happy today. I love working, having free salad for lunch and having freshly plucked brows. I love having dinner with my parents and watching them get fascinated by Draw Something. I love when my dad offered to give me a massage when I whined on and on about my sore calves even though he slogs 10 times harder at work, 6 days a week, for many years on end without any complaint. Ok I should just zip my mouth and stop fucking complaining.
Gave lunch at home a miss and headed down to SIM’s Open House this afternoon, and I’m pretty glad I did. After making a comparison between RMIT’s Bachelor in Professional Communications course and UB’s equivalent of it, I decided that I would apply for the former. It’s a part-time course which will see me having classes from 7-10pm on 4 weekdays and 9am-5.30pm on Saturdays. Social life = gone. And I’ll most probably be working in the day. But it’s okay, I can enter Year 3 straightaway and graduate with a degree within a year! So relieved and excited that I have finally settled on what I would be doing after my formal graduation in April/ May :)
