Don’t ever change
Yesterday I had my last class for my Bachelor degree and I am rather thrilled. I keep checking my enrolment and seeing “Potentially Complete”, which is definitely a nice thing to see. Soon I’ll be able to fully enrol into my Graduate Diploma program for 2012. I can hardly wait. I am really looking forward to next year.
I bought ingredients for fridgecake yesterday, and James and I went through the self-serve checkout because that always seems more interesting than having someone serve you at the checkout. We used his refund card that he gave me a while back, then caught a bus up to the other shopping mall to use the massage chairs. Before we got to the chairs, there was an announcement about Remembrance Day and we, along with many other people, stood still in silence for a minute to pay our respects.
A few years ago, my dad and I had been in the car on the freeway at 11:00am on Remembrance Day (11th November) when the announcement came on the radio. We were quiet inside the car and once the minute was over, my dad mentioned that he saw that some people had actually stopped by the side of the road.
At the shopping mall there were some people still walking around all the people standing still, and some people who stood still but kept talking to their friend. I understand that some people don’t wish to participate and continue doing what they’re doing, but if you’re going to stop as the announcement suggests but keep on talking, then I find that a bit rude. I find it more respectful that some people were walking around but still being quiet at least for the people who wanted to pay respects.
James and I had an eight-minute massage in the massage chairs. Usually those things seem very obnoxious. Would you trust a massage chair? :P Either way, since I am very short, using a massage chair probably doesn’t give me the full benefits of a real massage. I’m small and short, and the leg sections of the chair don’t quite reach my legs as they do their work because they’re that thin. Not to mention I appear rather slouched in the chair and my head doesn’t actually rest in the head section.
I bought atlantic salmon and James was just commenting on how I was sitting in a massage chair just enjoying a snack of salmon and corn thins when he felt the pain of the massage chair. I wouldn’t say it’s pain, but when you’ve been tense all semester from all the stress, a massage can cause a bit more tension before it lets you ease up.
We were very refreshed afterwards. I also got corn thin crumbs all over my shirt.
We rushed back to university where I was in time to present one of my photography assignments – my last one. My teachers said I had actually done really well for someone who was just an elective student and not a photography major. I must say, I’m pretty proud myself.
James and I went to eat sushi for lunch. I said that the grilled salmon sushi I chose was great, and he didn’t think so (he doesn’t like raw meat). He picked up a not-so-appealing-looking dish and bet that it was just as good. He was wrong and he didn’t finish it. XD
I made the fridgecake once I got home but it ended up hard as a rock. Regardless, my mum and brother like it and I pretend it’s my brownies. Georgie Brownies. While it looked like a rock, once I cut it up, it was very niceeeee. /drool
