Thought I should update a wee bit, before I decide that there's too much to talk about and I just give up completely...

So in no particular order, here are some things that have happened in the life of me lately:

I twisted my ankle yesterday walking to a lecture. Twisted it, and then ran into a tree. My ankle is now hurting a lot which is not good.

I also bruised my arm yesterday when I.... well, when I accidentally threw my copy card behind the copy-station where I was just about to swipe the card. I couldn't reach the card without the aid of a pen and some very undignified poses, and in the process of retrieving the card I managed to wedge my arm against two very sharp corners. The result? Some rather large and painful bruises on my left arm.

Yes, I know, I'm an idiot.

On Saturday I got up at the ungodly hour of 4.40am (who knew that the world existed that early!) to go out to the airport with some other people to farewell a friend who was going to back home overseas. It was all very sad and emotional and just like airport farewells on movies, right down to the final wave from the door of the plane. Sigh. Life just won't be the same without the wonderful presence of the person we were farewelling but whose name I will not write here.

Anyway, after leaving the airport we decided that comfort food was in order, so it was off to McDonald's for some lovely and fatty hotcakes (sooooo good). It would've been an uneventful visit, if it wasn't for the guy who was sitting opposite us.

Poor guy, he had fallen asleep while sitting up at the table, that's how exhausted he was. Only problem was, he'd fallen asleep whilst reading his magazine - in this case, fallen asleep in the process of turning the page of his magazine. It would've been fine, if it wasn't for the fact that he was reading a porn magazine! And because he had the page half-turned he was showing to all of us several photos that young and innocent university students should never see, particularly that early in the morning. Very traumatic all round really...

We eventually got back to college after that particularly distressing incident, and spent several hours zoning out at the breakfast table from lack of sleep. Then I... well, I cleaned my room or something like that, then it was off with a friend of mine from down the hall, out into the country to pick up a friend of his from his farm. If that makes sense. Anyway, it was an hour and a half there and an hour and a half back - I was proud of the fact that I managed to stay awake for the ride there, but the trip back was a bit too much, and I slept most of the way back.

Which was good because that night there was a college bar night, which is basically an excuse to dance a lot on the conveniently provided dance floor. It was a good night, but goddamn, did my feet not feel like they were broken in many, many places afterwards. Damn new boots!

So yeah, that's a bit of a recap of my recent life. The scratch in my laptop screen is annoying the hell out of me, but I think I'm just going to have to accept that it's here to stay. I'm blaming you Bron - I'm pretty sure that it was a picture of you in a frame that did it!
