With tired eyes, tired minds, tired souls
Two weeks of university have come and gone. I don’t quite know what to think. At this rate, I’ll be alright. Heck, I’ll always be alright, who am I kidding. I’m not behind yet; I’m going to spend the next few days working on my proposal and working ahead. I already took a peek at next week’s stuff for one of my subjects. It’s looking good so far.
And work? Work is fantastic. I get irritated every now and then when I’m working on something that does my head in – which isn’t all the time. And I still haven’t finished my jigsaw puzzle, which is sitting in the kitchen at work. Work is like my second home now. In the mornings, I find that sometimes I skip breakfast because I’m in a rush. The other day I drank soup at my desk. Luckily, it was beautifully raining, so it was very fitting. Beautifully raining and I chose to wear a different, real leather pair of boots too. Because of that, the rain didn’t soak all the way through my boots and to my socks. I was a happy girl that day. :)
It’s not often I wear jeans and ankle-high heeled boots. Okay, so I hate jeans, but it was a very cold and rainy day, and somehow I think it is better to deal with rain in jeans or pants than in a skirt/dress and pantyhose/stockings.
Thursdays are getting dull for me now. Class from 6:00 until 9:00 in the evenings. I finish early sometimes, but still around 8:30. I get home around 10:00. My dad has to pick me up from the train station because it’s late and there aren’t any buses that can take me home from there. He ends up being late for work. (He works night shift.) I think that maybe I could finish up class earlier, it’s no big deal, but after July, I can’t do that anymore because pretty much all my classes finish very late.
I thought of this crazy idea to go back to work and sleep in the office because there’s a sofa and a kitchen and enough for me to just sleep on and then get up in the morning. It’s a crazy idea. I just don’t like the idea of arriving back home at 10:00 only to shower and sleep, and wake up at 6:00 just to eat, brush my teeth, and go back to where I came home from. It’s like I’m just going home to sleep, plus the ridiculous total of three hours of travelling. Yuck.
I sure like my mornings, and I don’t mind my commutes, but I don’t like my commutes. I’ve gotten addicted to Jewels Maze on my phone again. I’m trying to get three stars on every level I’ve unlocked. Just trying to do the best I can, of course.
Every Friday James and I just have this thing – we play Friday Come Five by Bob Evans in the car while he drives me home. The lyrics are fitting.
On Friday come five, it is the weekend
Well, for me it’s really six o’clock and not five o’clock, and James finishes up maybe around 5:30, but it’s still a great song to welcome in the weekend. Better than Rebecca Black’s song, too.
I’m rather tired now, I think I ought to go to sleep. I slept early quite a few nights in the week, but towards the end of the week I started sleeping later again. I’m getting very tired. I just watched a video lecture for class and I want to watch another one but I’m yawning madly. Am I turning into a workaholic? @_@ I spent most of today cleaning my room and throwing out a lot of stuff just to clear up space on my desk and in my shelves. I think I did a pretty good job. I found a lot of old notes and things that I know I won’t look at again, so they went in the trash.
It’s a weird thing for me to read that you are just two weeks into your new semester when I’ve just finished up my eight and am now on spring break. 😝 Well, I guess it’s not so strange considering we’re in very different time zones and countries. XD
That’s fantastic you don’t feel swamped yet, so hopefully you don’t ever reach that point this semester. I find working ahead eases that swamped feeling because then you just get everything done before it’s due and as you approach the due date, there’s not much left but turn the assignment in! That’s my opinion anyway.
Just hearing the name Rebecca Black gives me the chills. I dont know how anyone can think she can sing. That song is really annoying, it sounds like she is holding her nose while she’s singing, XD
I didnt think that it took you 3 hours to get to school. That’s a long ride. Have you considered getting a car? It might be the best thing. :D
Anyway, I’ve decided to get a website. I’ve applied at Bubble again and as soon as they accept me, I’ll let you know the URL. Somehow I knew I was going to do this, I just thought it would have been later on. Oh well I guess. :D
Oh I forgot to reply earlier, but you’re welcome! And I hope you share the URL when you’re done. I love reading your rants. :D I’m sure Kya will get back to you soon!
Dang, I’d probably drop dead with a schedule like yours. >_< I used to have classes that ran sorta late last semester, so I made sure to get early classes this semester and I like it SO much better because when I get home, it's still daylight and I have the whole day to get stuff done. I also have time to nap (if I need) in which I'd wake up just in time for dinner.
Have you thought about buying a car? Right now, my dad drops me off at college and picks me up, but we have been looking nonstop for a good car for the past couple of days so I could drive myself since I have a license and all.
I know how commuting feels and it sucks. :T Waking up early, then the ride to your destination, then the whole day doing whatever which makes you feel super tired, and then the long ride back. Ugh.
Jewel Maze!!! I’ve been addicted to that thing on my cousin’s phone (but i don’t have a touchscreen phone) and have been trying to get three stars on all the levels *she’s* unlocked! So i know just how addictive that thing is…
Wuw it’s the weekend! And it’s drawing to a close. D: D: D:
I do think sleeping at work is a good idea for you. :3 at least you’ll never be late! and it’s not like you can sweat or anything. :B
Jigsaw puzzle is fun! :D Nice to see a grown up still enjoying the joy in doing puzzles. I just love stuff like puzzles that requires my brain to work.
Cracked me up when I saw the name Rebecca Black typed there. I always use her Friday song as a joke when it comes to friday aka last day of school :P
Wow. Three hours!? D: man, it’s such a long ride… it’s as if you’re going on a vacation, lol.
Nice to see you enjoying your work (H) I hope I can enjoy it as much as you do later on when I grow up.. /is scared of the future
Work’s been busy for everyone these days. I don’t blame you for being caught up with school and work D:! If you spend a portion of your time at work, it might as well be your second home! It’s all in a day’s work, right? :D
I thought I was the only one who stopped wearing jeans. :X When it’s raining, I suppose it is better wear jeans- it’s thicker than stocking for sure.
That’s the life of a college life, classes are just crazy and they even reach as late as 10pm! And as early as 6am (from cooking courses I’ve seen :O).
If commuting takes too much time, you might as well invest in a car. There’s it’s ups and downs like buying a parking permit and insurance, but it does save time :)! That’s just me though :x.
I think it’s super cute that James and you play Friday Come Five while he drives you home! :D!
Good luck with the things you gotta do :X. I mean, it’s all going ot be over soon right? No more college courses, but just work work work.
Everyone’s super busy at this time around D:! I think popular music is harder to play because there’s so many arrangements of them. For a Lady Gaga song, Edge of Glort, I found 5 different arrangements for it. The easiest one was the one we played for the rose parade band. I don’t need to worry about sharps or flats!
Also take a note, you were 16 years old around… 2008? That’s when web designers started to spring out of nowhere! My dad usually just questions me about what “cool app” there is today or something. I usually just respond with “I don’t know” XD.
Take care ;D
I have the same jeans aversion but I also wear jeans in rainy weather. We seem to hold the same sartorial philosophy..
I think that at our age, being a workaholic is all right as long as you enjoy what you do and take pride in what you do. So you are a workaholic for good reasons!
I’m not sure that sleeping at work is a good idea… maybe worth trying at some point? I probably would have tried to rent an apartment closer to work/school and then go home on the weekends, but not everyone can afford that. It’ll save you a lot of time, and it’s not like you’d be using that time well, anyways.
Get some rest, Georgie! We all love you!
Looking good. The only reason I’m behind in my school work is, there is a team project and we’re waiting on a team member but there are no late penalties. And I’m up-to-date on everything else.
Oh yeah, rain can be less of a hassle with jeans. :)
A Friday song better than Rebecca Black’s? Never knew.
I know what you mean about late nights. I myself, have to do those when I don’t prepare well (I’m still only 17), I forgot what an eight-hour rest felt like until I actually had one again. I woke up and was ready to take on the world. :D
I don’t think you are a workaholic, you just aren’t being lazy. :) Hope things keep going fantastic for you.
Thanks, I’m glad you liked my layout colors.
I like older movies too. ♥
