Forget to Remember

I’m tired. I’m very tired.

I’m feeling a little better than when I last posted. But, I’m still feeling tired. I honestly cannot wait for a holiday, but that is in another five or so weeks. And this time it’ll be the end of semesters so there are no hidden little assignments to do.

I feel like I’ve worked hard this semester. πŸ™‚ I’m sort of eager to get some assignments back so I know how I’m going. It’s a really good feeling when that hard work pays off.

Nearly every day I wake up at 6:00am. By 6:50 I should be out the door to be taken to the train station. My brother comes along as well since he also needs to catch a train.

I love my mornings. I am a very morning person, and I can concentrate and think better in the mornings. But what I hate is rushing in the morning. I can’t stand the rush.

Rush gets you in big trouble. I can name several moments when I’ve forgotten things at home because I’ve been in a mad rush. The one time I forgot my wallet, my mum was very angry that she had to make a trip back home. 😰

One time I forgot my work shirt. I go work straight after university, so there isn’t really a way of me getting the shirt if I leave it at home.

Forgetting things is absolutely terrible. I hate forgetting things, and whenever I am out and about, I have awful feelings when I get up from sitting somewhere, whether it’s just sitting, or having lunch, or watching something, or on public transport – that I have left something behind. I get up and look around the seat I sat in, and I make sure I don’t leave anything behind. It makes me paranoid, and even after the space I was in is clear, I get up and walk away, still having that horrible feeling that I’ve left something behind.

When you’re in a rush, you don’t even get the opportunity to turn around and see what you’ve left behind – if anything.

When you’re in a rush, you dash out the door from home, not realising you left something behind on your desk.

Your assignment.

Oh, that is the worst.

I believe it happened to me once in high school, but lucky for me, I had a copy on my USB/memory stick and could print it from the school computers. There was no way I was walking back home! 😦

I don’t know why, but as big as my laptop is and the amount of space it takes up in my bag, I always feel like I’ve left it behind. I’ve had it a year and I promise you, I’m still not adjusted to the fact that it’s the computer I use regularly and the fact that it’s portable. I’m taking all my files and programs and graphics and website files with me – for some reason, I’m still not used to it! I take it with me and sometimes it slips my mind and I think that I’ve left something at home. πŸ˜†

Today I forgot my water bottle, which resulted in me buying bottled water and McDonald’s successfully luring me into buying a caramel latte (which was expensive).

Oh, the joys of forgetting things. πŸ˜“
