A Drop in The Ocean

Monday, August 29th, 2011

It’s raining. Oh what a monday :) I’m actually on a weirdly good spirits today. Why? No idea!! I feel like someone has slipped me a happy pill. I’m sitting here in front of my laptop, near a huge window, watching as the rain pours down. It looks gray and cold outside and all I can think of is “haha, I just went for a 1-hour walk and it didn’t rain then!” I’m also giggling at myself because I am in the process of adding all 3 of the Twilight movies on my external hard drive. YES! I find this (and myself) ridiculously amusing. (running out of “joker” adjectives here, soon.. help!)

So today I woke up early and went to do some “neccecities shopping”. School is starting again next week and I needed to stock up some specific things that might be difficult to find from a normal grocery store (when I don’t have the time to go for a hunt for a certain prouct at a certain mall, you know). Then the rest of the day I’ve just been exersizing, crafting and listening to music (and trying to avoid eating junk!).

Though. I feel like I need a “eating junk & watching junk” day. So.. as long as I don’t get an invite to work in the next couple of hours.. tomorrow will be another “day off” AND.. my (giggling here again folks) idiotically brilliant plan is to fetch me some McNuggets and have a Twilight movie marathon. What a high-quality day it’s going to be food and entertainment wise :D! (are you sensing the irony in my voice?)

Ok. Now I’m starting to annoy myself. Stop smiling! Stop finding everything hilarious! WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU TODAY? Please someone get me out of this mood and get me back to that “the glass is half empty” -vibe that I’m so used to.

What’s your mood at the moment?
Your favorite movie of the 3 Twilight movies (if any)?

ps. Yum, yum, yum. OK BYE!

Don’t lie to my face telling me I’m pretty

How are you doing? I’m doing pretty well. In fact, life is good and I have nothing to complain about – yet I do. I’ve been at work a lot. This is good because it means that I am needed there. It also helps a lot with my financial situation (which is always ok, but now I have some extra savings). School will begin shortly and that is also a good thing. This should/could be my last year of studying in Uni – ever! Summer has been great but I do miss the structured days of school lectures and popping into a grocery store to buy a yummy salad (or, yes, donut!) to cheer me up after a hard day of learning. Personal life is good too. I feel so lucky to have a wide network of friends around me. I might also have someone on my mind. But, .. this is where it all turns into a pile of negatives and whining on my part. Work and school take a lot of my time. Currently I have hard time concentrating on anything. I spend hours listening to emotional music, phasing back and forth in my appartment or going out for long walks because I feel so restless. I’m afraid that once school starts I will fail at it miserably. I am also afraid that because currently there’s so much work reserved for me, that it will take away from the time I should be spending at school. And then.. free time. I need my free time, craft time, music time, photography time. My life is crowded. It feels SO good! But it’s also stressful. And at the same time I wouldn’t want to pick a single thing to give up on. I love my work, my school, and my current “?”-personal life situation. It’s all very exciting, not knowing what will happen next, but just enjoying the moment.

Soo… there’s still time to make sure that this Autumn will be the best ever though. Things are going to sort themselves out eventually. Right now it’s sunday and I spent some time with my family. Right now I’m sitting at home and thinking about maybe going for (another) walk. Then… how about some photography? I haven’t been really doing that much lately, other than those occasional weekend party shots of friends you know. Yeah, sundays should be spent doing something completely random.

Are you on Google+? Could you send me an invite? Thank you Georgina!
Are you happy or sad that it’ll be September soon?
