Day 58 – They’ve Got Me Runnin’ and Hidin’ All Over Town

I feel slightly incompetent today. I wrote the wrong grade in for one of my students and I feel pretty bad about it. Everything worked out fine but BAH I hate screwing up something that I checked over and over and over again. It just means next time I’ll be even more anxious and paranoid about the things that I do for tutorials.

I still haven’t gotten around to watching Pretty Little Liars. What is this? I wonder if there is reasoning behind my reluctance to keep watching this show even though I always enjoy it when I do. Is this reasoning something that I can incorporate into my thesis?

ANSWERS. I NEED ANSWERS.

Things I did instead of working:

  • Met up with L. It’s so great to meet people that you have a lot in common with. I find it so inspiring to talk to aspiring writers, I wish I had their kind of passion and sense of certainty about what they’re doing.
  • Went to JG’s birthday dinner! Karaoke woooooooooo
    ?????????????????
  • Set up meetings with C and A. I’ll allocate second letters once I know, haha.

Seriously though, my weekend is looking so busy now. I have so much thesis stuff I want to do this weekend. THEY MUST BE DONE!

Random lyrics I shamelessly sang at Red Hill. Own it, babes:

You know you love me, I know you care
Just shout whenever, and I’ll be there
You are my love, you are my heart
And we will never ever ever be apart

Are we an item? Girl, quit playing
We’re just friends, what are you saying?
Say there’s another and look right in my eyes
My first love broke my heart for the first time
And I was like…

Baby, baby, baby oooh
Like baby, baby, baby nooo
Like baby, baby, baby oooh
I thought you’d always be mine (mine)

Day 56 – Please Forgive Me, I Know Not What I Do

Cheat Entry 😦

For shame

For shame

I don’t even remember what I did today. I apologise.

I think I did a lot of photocopying. Oh yes, and I read from Matt Hills’ Fan Cultures book. I also vaguely remember feeling unwell.

Am I a goldfish?

Things I did today instead of working:

  • Swiped right and left. It’s amazing how many matches you get during stormy weather. I guess there’s nothing quite like being alone on a cold night to make people want to window shop on Tinder.

Random  lyrics for the stormy seasons:

Love is in the air
Everywhere I look around
Love is in the air
Every sight and every sound

And I don’t know if I’m being foolish
Don’t know if I’m being wise
But it’s something that I must believe in
And it’s there when I look in your eyes

– John Paul Young

Day 55 – It’s Going Down, I’m Yelling Tinder

I spent the whole day in bed again. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I keep feeling really sick and exhausted both mentally and physically. I think maybe I need to change my diet because my body is just not cooperating with my activities.

Today was such a miserable day, simply because I wanted to get heaps of things done. I wanted to finish cleaning my room, I wanted to work out, I wanted to cook a proper breakfast… instead I lay in bed and coughed. At least I managed to read late essays so, that’s something.

Damn this day. Ruiner of What We Do In The Shadows trip and waster of time.

Things I did today instead of working:

  • Convinced by my friends to finally download Tinder. Since I was on bed-rest, it seemed as good a time as any. I’m not opposed to online dating, I’m just kind of a shy person. In fact, I got so nervous about right-swiping someone that I had to text a friend for moral support. Yes. Moral support on an anonymous dating app.
    Basically me to JB the whole time I was on the app.

    Basically me to JB the whole time I was on the app.

    Also I feel bad about rejecting someone because of their looks. The big red “NOPE” that pops up seems a bit harsh. I was trying to rationalise to a friend that I didn’t want to left-swipe a guy because I was sure he had a lovely personality. I was promptly reminded that that was not the point of this app.

  • Rude

    Rude.

    While it is a great ego boost to see the magical words, “It’s A Match!”, I do have to wonder if these guys right swiped every photo that they saw so that they can cast a wide net. I’ve heard that women often have better luck on these types of apps than men. I’ll make sure to remind myself that if I ever start to feel too chuffed from the texting.

Random high school throwback lyrics:

It’s just too little too late
A little too wrong
And I can’t wait
You know all the right things to say
(You know it’s just too little too late)

You say you dream of my face
But you don’t like me
You just like the chase
To be real, it doesn’t matter anyway
(You know it’s just too little too late)
