All in the Mind
I finished watching the first season of Doctor Who. The new season, I mean… the one that started in 2005. I’m hooked already. I’m not one to like television shows very much. I was surprised I actually like the show because I don’t watch television or movies much, not to mention it takes a lot for me to actually bother to watch something when someone recommends it to me.
I also finished reading Shadow’s Edge by Brent Weeks. It was very good. I can say that I’ve accomplished two things during this break. 😛
Tomorrow I’ve got to go to work but I get to see James. He’s coming over for a bit before I go to work. I haven’t seen him in a really long time and I miss him. You know what they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder. ☺️
My parents aren’t going to be home – my mum has some beauty training on the other side of the city and my dad’s driving her there, as well as browsing the shops and buying some Asian groceries. They’ll be home late.
I recently realised that I have not ever called in sick to work. I have never been sick on a day when I’ve had to work. I’ve always been one to have good attendance. I haven’t had anything clash with work, either, since two years ago. At the end of 2008 I took a little time off work because I had my formal/prom and wanted a break.
But nope. Since then – nearly two years – I haven’t been sick or taken a break. I guess I completely avoided anything being in the way. And it’s a good thing that I work in the afternoons, because I don’t have university classes or anything.
During high school I always attempted to get 100% attendance. It made me feel proud, as ridiculous as it was. I tried to be at school on every school day.
In university I tried to do the same, until it came to the subject Ideas in History. No doubt my university friends are laughing at how much they hated this subject too. I neglected Ryan in countless lectures because I didn’t want to attend. They were extremely dull and half the information I could pick up from the readings or my own research.
Sometimes I wish high school had been as flexible as university. Attending classes to fit your daily life, not having to attend classes all the time (you do have to attend a certain percentage of classes though), blah, blah, blah.
Oh well. In school you don’t really get to do what you want. In university you do. Maybe that’s why it’s so flexible. 😧
Okay, random question time.
- What was the last book you read?
- What was the last movie you saw?
- What was the last song you listened to?
