You get days where one big thing just makes your whole day miserable and worthless. You also get days which are even worse, when everything doesn’t seem to be working, and it’s small little things which just ends up driving you bonkers. Today is one of those days, and I’m not liking it much.
At the moment, it’s not university work related, I’m on top of that. Infact after this blog post I’m off to the library since I need to get away from this flat ASAP.
Now let’s briefly go over the small (and possibly insignificant) things that are going wrong. First, netbook doesn’t like me first thing in the morning. Turn it off and on again, problem sorted. Four hours later, call from the Apple store on my MacBook. New battery done, but the underside needs replacing. Will take a few days for the part to arrive. Annoying but bearable situation. Then I read a frankly disturbing message stating that my parents are really concerned about me, that they don’t know who I am any more, that my facebook messages don’t match my personality and they think I’m not doing the work. Now that is not what you want to read midway through your day. Then a drink gets spilt on my bag.
More lectures, then I get ‘home’ I feel hungry. As usual, the kitchen is a state with pots and pans everywhere, dirty jugs and bowls with mash and cold water in the sink, and my utensils being used again! I’m also finding someone keeps taking my canned drinks. I then try and tidy up, and I smash two plates because everything just falls down from the drying rack. I clean up the mess, notice the recycling bins are overflowing, no-one’s doing anything about it, and they’re all playing guitar hero. What a surprise. At this point, I complain a little bit, no-one’s taking any notice, and I give up.
Just to add insult, my Dell desktop’s hard drive packs in. <sarcasm>Like I never saw that one coming</sarcasm>. This is the point where I’m walking out the door
Before anyone complains this sounds a little bit silly, emoish, that i’m making a mountain out of a molehill sort of thing – please try being in my shoes before you assume.
Now I’m going to the library just to simply get away from Flat 109 since all it’s doing is making me feel ill. I’m also hungry, but since I really cannot be arsed to clean up other people’s leftovers and they won’t do it (in fact they’re all going out surprise surprise) then I can’t be bothered to eat. I was looking forward to my ducks legs and rice as well.
Rant and cooling exercise over, now I’m doing work. Imagine that, I’m keeping up with my work.
