This morning was basically like this:
Then I had half a wedge of camembert for lunch. Which was okay.
Postgrad life is killing me. Not softly with a song, like Roberta Flack. Killing me aggressively with ups and downs of stress and work. The days after you finish a big deadline aren’t even breaks or celebrations. They’re just a chance to reload.
I love it.
Things I did today instead of working:
- Stayed in bed until 12pm. I had every intention of doing a bed rest day, eating my cheese and crackers and listening to my podcast.
- Got a random message from JK who I barely talk to during the weekend because we generally just talk via ESP. Because we’re awkward as crap, we took forever to actually get around to saying, “Oh hey, did you maybe wanna hang out today?”. We got there eventually.
- Hell yes, Wendy’s and The Fault In Our Stars! Well, mostly the Wendy’s thing. The movie was okay and also quite sad but super cheesy. Some of the lines were just hysterical simply because there’s no way in hell teenagers are that poetic and articulate, especially when they speak to someone they’ve only just started dating. That corny crap is usually reserved for people you’ve dated for awhile, mostly because they love you too much to leave you for saying vomity things.
Although, the best part about the movie was the amount of people willing to ugly cry in the dark, despite the fact that they are surrounded by hundreds of people. I’ve been known to cry during a movie. It’s just something that I do. But kids, if you can, try to save your tears for a slightly better story. This movie doesn’t even begin to show how epic an epic movie romance can be.
Random lyrics from 18 year old me:
Why be sad broken hearted?
There’s so much to do
Life is hard or it’s a party
The choice is up to you
With a new attitude everything can change
Make it how you want it to be
Stay sad, why do that? Give yourself a break
I know you want to party with me
