It’s really cold. It’s nearly winter where I live and I’ve been looking for the warmest of pants and just layering up. It reminds me of when we went to the snow as a class in year eleven… 2007. Years and years ago. Every time I talk to someone who lives somewhere where it snows in winter, I have to remind them that while it does snow in Australia, it’s only in the places you would normally expect snow to be – the mountaintops. Hours and hours away from my hometown.
I used to think it would be beautiful to see the snow on my windowsill or just a thin layer of white in my backyard. Now that I know the deal with shovelling snow and dealing with the cold as well as the sludge when the sun comes out – perhaps not. I think I kind of like the misty mornings and the sun’s rays pushing through the fog.
One day many years ago when I was still in high school the most amazing thing I experienced was walking through fog in the wee hours of the morning on my way to school. Idiotically, I had not brought a jumper or a jacket with me. I could barely see with the fog in front of me but I could see my warm breath escape my mouth.
I do like winter. Sure, I’m cold as hell now, and there are times when I can’t feel my feet, but that’s why I like it. I can jump around with that weird sensation in my feet. My hands get cold, but that’s why I keep them busy by typing or with wonderful gloves. My ears feel cold, and it’s then that I vow not to cut my hair short for the winter. Ever. And I can look forward to wearing the cute little beanie James gave me.
Hugs are good for the cold. ♥️
On the other side of things, here I am on Sunday. Since the sixth series of Doctor Who began, I’ve been hooked. And I’ve woken up in the wee hours of the morning on Sunday to watch it online, because it doesn’t air in Australia until the next week. Of course, my Sunday mornings are usually lazy like everyone else’s. The only downside to that is that my whole day usually becomes unproductive and lazy… so today, as a result, was.
I’ve got a huuuuuge backlog of comments, and honestly, I appreciate them all. I’ve read most of them but I hope to catch up with you all soon. I’ve noticed a lot of people have been inactive lately and haven’t been around to blog… I suppose it’s just a worldly thing. After all we need a break sometimes.
While I had a nice Sunday to have a good break from all the university work, I’m probably going to be back into it again. I’ve got to do (yet another) stupid research assignment and I hope that I can find some people online who will be willing to help me out, as it’s related to Twitter and I know that some of you use that website.
I used to like Mondays. Now I hate them. I have a stupid class which I’m now deeming useless. I mean what the fuck, last week our tutor was telling us how to drag and drop. Far out. I’m paying for this crap. Which undeniably sucks, but I think I’ve come to the conclusion that I am wasting my money because half the people in my class are dumb and don’t have the assumed knowledge of computer literacy that was required for our course.
I’ll just sit up the back on my laptop and… I don’t know. Finish the exercises in ten minutes like I usually do?
