Stress! And Monday Strikes Again! (DUN DUN DUN DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNNNNNNNN)

Hey Guys!

Ever had one of those days? Where nothing is going the way it should be and the temptation to either scream and bash your head against a brick wall is clouding your judgement? I'm having one as we speak and it's a curious case of the revenge of The Mondays.

Very few now of the pure evil that is Monday, where students and employees are forced to leave their warm, comfortable beds in Arctic conditions to learn to live or live to work. It's a vicious cycle that has never been broken. Well, except in Egypt, cause their weekends are on Thursday and Friday due to Friday being a day of prayer and the like. But it just means that they must hate their Saturdays as much as we hate Mondays. Or as I hate Mondays.

Most Saturday and Sunday mornings result in me waking earlier than I do to go to school, simply due to the fact that I normally start at 7 and it takes a good 20 minutes to muster the will to get out of bed, let alone get ready for work. But alas, the few mornings that I don't start at 7 make me relish any extra time I have with which to sleep in, which is something that has become quite unheard of within my world and is something that could be closely tied to Heaven. Lovely to think about but you won't quite know whether or not it exists until no one can hear you.

But there are certain perks to working in the morning. I can sleep for the rest of the day if I feel like it and can go out in the afternoon. But it also means that it is warm enough to do domestic things around the house and clean my room, a task not attempted for at least 2 months now. The only condition that my brother gave me was that as long as I could find everything within a minute or two, he didn't care. Which is fine with me.

In my Geography class, the teacher (Sully - not his real last name lol) actually acknowledged Emily, who we had all believed to be invisible in his eyes. Am now completing the report that was due today tonight so that I can slap it on his desk tomorrow morning instead of procrastinating. Which is a habit that I'm currently trying to rid myself of. And while it may sound easy to those of you that have never been labelled as a 'harcore procrastinator' it's easy to just say that I'm lazy, which is true, but the sheer terror of assignments just makes me turn to MSN or Blogger to fill the void of time that I've just acquired.

But enough of this now, for I have to go and shower and finish this report. A big defeated sigh right here.

Monday strikes again. Well played Monday.

Today's Bento

Have got an extra few minutes to spare this morning cause I'm not having breakfast (weetbix on the go in a HK cup) and just used the new strawberry bento for the first time! Although I did have some trouble with the seller (he sent me the wrong bag!) I haven't heard from him in over a week and have just given up :(. So using the leftovers of the other night's lasagne from the newest teen chef, it's quite neat and yummy looking. Don't be fooled by the size of the box; its thicker than the new Nintendo DS XL, but length and width are about the same.
What the box looks like and me in my jim jams.
The yummy goodness inside! Soy penguin dogs and carrot and cucumber. There isn't any fruit in the house :(.

Well I need to finish my make up and somehow tidy the nest of bedhair piled atop of my head.
Wish me luck!

Hello All

Back again for some blogging. I was looking over it and realised that I really don't spend so much time on it anymore and that I should commit to this human-blog relationship. The City is on my TV in the background. As a reality TV virgin, MTV is suprisingly not that bad.

My day has been suprisingly average. I had a study day today, cause its Thursday and with the horrible weather the temptation to just throw myself back into the covers and scream 'I'M NOT GOING!" at the top of my lungs. I must say, that, for an expert procrastinator, is the worlds most difficult task.

So excited this morning, cause I got to test out my new Hello Kitt pancake pan, the newest edition to my Kitty-fied domain. I burnt some of them but they look so cute! Naturally I have to include my attempt:

Covered in whipped cream and strawberries ($7 a punnet! The curse of Winter!Argh!) they were really yummy. Well, except for the burnt ones.

My phone just went off. I can't understand why some people are so glued to their phones sometimes.

Well, its almost 6pm and before long my brother may very well just gnaw a big hole into my door and we're renting, so not good.

So with that I leave you! Tonight is roast potatoes, vege and schnitzel. Yum!

Oh and that short story that I posted a bit ago? I got an A- for it. Not bad for something hastily written 4 hours before it was handed in.
