Another brick in the wall

I’m racing Rachel; she thinks that I’ll finish writing this blog post before she finishes getting ready to go to the gym. I told her she’d be wrong – I type fast, but it takes me an awfully long time to say, “Well, I’ve finished that blog!”

I’ve put too much thought into my blog posts over the past year – not really all the time, but generally – and like I suggested to Rachel, I should write whatever comes to mind, not really caring about what I write or don’t write.

I’ve nearly finished the puzzle at work… today I spent about 50 minutes on the puzzle and I probably have between 50 and 100 pieces left. I told my boss I was nearly done and the rest seemed easy.
“Like a shoe in, eh?” he said. Well, I hope so. I aimed to finish it last Friday but maybe, just maybe, I can finish it tomorrow. My eyes are already melting at the thought. 😰 I think it’ll be like a load off my back though. I won’t have to worry about it anymore. It was pretty good – a $5 puzzle with 1000 pieces lasted me quite some time.

I bid on an iPad on eBay a while ago and won it; it was shipped on the 21st of February or so, and it still hasn’t arrived. I had it shipped to my work office, and as I guessed, the case I ordered came first. The lonely red thing is just sitting on my desk there. 😞 You won’t believe it; every day I walk past the mailbox and try not to look desperate as I peek in. I still wonder whether an iPad would actually fit in there; I still wonder if the postman just left it on top of the letterbox… I am still paranoid that someone stole it, knowing an iPad was inside. Every time I hear someone walking up the stairs I’m hoping it’s someone there to deliver my godforsaken iPad.

It’s just a first generation bugger with Wi-Fi, but it’s just what I need to read on the train and to surf the net and to take to university. I’m so impatient for it. I just hope someone didn’t steal it and it’s just sitting in the mail facility somewhere. My dad works at the mail facility sorting the mail – if he’s seen it while sorting, well, I hope he lets me know. πŸ˜›

While I was doing my puzzle this afternoon before class, my boss asked, “Don’t you have class?”
“Yes, I’ll leave in a few.”
“Are you going to wag? You know, we don’t really care if you do, it’s none of our business.” πŸ˜†

I don’t know where these terms for “skipping school” came up; I usually use the word “jig”. I’m sure there were more – apparently “playing hooky” was another. To be honest, I’ve been pretty sweet with attendance most of my school/educational life, never skipping a class in high school, though I will admit that in university I slacked off a lot. There were times I knew I wasn’t going to learn anything so I went and used my time for something else. Often wisely, to do assignments, often just to hang out with friends. Oooh, rebel. Whatever. 😎

I painted my nails light blue with white tips on the weekend. It’s nice to have a lighter colour for once. I’m actually really proud of how it turned out because I did the tips on an angle, diagonally, and I put a non-chip top coat. Usually my nails start peeling within days but it’s been a couple of days and they seem okay. I really hope they last until the weekend, I’ll be thrilled. Hopefully even until next week.

I’m getting tired. I want to go to work early so I can do my homework in peace in the office. Or you know, get distracted by my puzzle again. Either way, I’m determined to finish it tomorrow, but we’ll see. I also love work, so we’ll see how that goes. 😍 πŸ˜‰
