Orphan Black

Day 54 – Red Alert, Red Alert, It’s (Not) A Catastrophe

CHEAT ENTRY

Had a mini freak out that all the grades had to be in today but it turned out okay. That was an awful bus ride though. Luckily, our admin is amazing and managed to get me in for grade entry 30 minutes after I read the reminder email.

I then felt absolutely awful when I got home. I’m not sure if it’s something I ate or if I’m just still tired from everything but that’s the reason I didn’t blog yesterday.

Things I did today instead of working:

  • Coffee with SH
  • Brunch with JB – On my way back from coffee with SH
  • Interrupted RH’s walk to the library in order to convince him to start watching Orphan Black. It’s that good.
  • Everyone should be watching.

    Everyone should be watching.

Random”damn, I need to watch Nashville” lyrics:

I finally kept my pride and hailed a cab
Those cuttin’ words you said were the last stab
There’ll be no tears this time, they’ve all dried up
No more sweet poison, I already drank that cup

This tunnel’s dark, but there’s a little light glowing
Just enough for me to run towards knowing

Nothing in this world will ever break my heart again
Nothing in this world will ever break my heart again
No pain this life will put me through will ever ever hurt like you

– Juliette Barnes

Day 53 – It’s Over and Done But the Tiredness Lives On Inside…

YES.

ALL THE (SUBMITTED) ESSAYS ARE DONE.

Let us rejoice at the return of sleep. Sleep is so beautiful.

Not so smug now, are ya princess?

Not so smug now, are ya princess?

Things I did today instead of working:

  • Instead of working? Nothing. But I did rewatch episodes of Orphan Black with my mum in between essay marking as a reward for every 5 essays I marked. Woo!

Random Hannah Montana lyrics I shamelessly sang in the shower:

Sometimes I wish when the phone rings
That it would be you saying, “Let’s hang out”
Then you confess that there’s something special
In between us, why don’t we find out

You don’t know me, guess you don’t need me
Why you’re not seein’ what you’re missin’
On the outside shyin’ away
On the inside dying to say

I’m unusual, not so typical
Way too smart to be waiting around
Tai Chi practices, snowboard champion
I can fix the flat on your car

I might even be a rock star

– Hannah Montana

Day 52 – Everybody Hurts

CHEAT ENTRY

I was feeling a little unwell yesterday so I didn’t write an entry. This about sums it up.

Phantom ache. Why do you plague me?

Phantom ache. Why do you plague me?

Things I did today instead of working:

  • Brunch with SH. Perhaps it was something I ate that is attempting to rip its way out of my stomach?

    Oh hai

    Oh hai

  • On the bright side, I finished season one of Orphan Black. The sickness strikes again!

Random bridge-burner lyrics:

Here’s your ticket pack your bags, time for jumpin’ overboard
The transportation is here
Close enough but not too far, maybe you know where you are
Fightin’ fire with fire

All wet hey you might need a raincoat
Shakedown dreams walking in broad daylight
Three hun-dred sixty five degrees
Burning down the house

It was once upon a place sometimes I listen to myself
Gonna come in first place
People on their way to work baby what did you except
Gonna burst into flame

– Talking Heads

Day 51 – Awooooo, Werewolves (and Vampires) of Wellington!

I picked up some of my late essays today. I’m pretty sure my weekend will now be spent marking them. Ah well.

Yet another weekend spent at uni. Woooooo!

Speaking of uni, we’re about to get a new officemate. Yay! From now on, he shall be known as DB:

Welcome, welcome!

Welcome, welcome!

Things I did today instead of working:

  • Started planning out my costume for my final tutorial. But which version of the Khalessi do I want to be???  I asked life’s toughest questions today.

  • Watched What We Do In the Shadows with JK. I have a feeling that since the final season of True Blood is premiering this Sunday, there will now be a lot of vampire talk on this blog. I am such a sucker for supernatural/horror fantasy with a comedic twist. I’ll probably even rewatch this movie. It was so good!wwdits

    There’s also really nothing like seeing your hometown on-screen. There’s a certain charm to walking out of a cinema and entering the exact street the movie was filmed on. Oh Wellington (or NZ in general), I love you and your weird small town feel. You are the Stars Hollow of the world.

    I like to think of WWDItS it as a Shaun of the Dead / Death Valley hybrid. Death Valley was one of the greatest things MTV ever produced and it is a damn shame we never got a second season!

  • I'll remember.

    I’ll remember.

  • Started watching Orphan Black. I am really enjoying this show so far. I had heard of the name but never actually looked into what it was about. Someone told me that the less I knew, the better so I just started watching without knowing the plot. It’s pretty great.  It actually reminds me a lot of this book series I used to read called Replica. I’m pretty excited about it. It’ll probably become yet another show I would rather watch than Pretty Little Liars.

    I always wanted a twin… or twelve.

Random lyrics that’s not about vampires but totally could be:

Here we go again
We’re sick like animals
We play pretend
You’re just
A cannibal
And I’m afraid
I won’t get out alive
No, I won’t sleep tonight

Oh oh
I want some more
Oh oh
What are you waiting for?
Take a bite of my heart tonight

– Neon Trees
