This is a new concept for me, but I’ve been feeling like I want to write a little more about myself lately but not really having anywhere to do it.
I know people like Laura usually do their updates on a Sunday, but I’m rarely home at the weekend so you’ll get my posts at some point in the middle of the week. Nothing like being vague, is there?
I’ve also stolen her format, which I hope she’ll forgive me for. Eh, she will. She’s nice like that 🙂
I’m off work today due to my ever-present stomach issues – despite which, however, this is my first sick day since I started work and I deifnitely couldn’t have gone in with the way I feel today. I am a little confused though. I never ever ever ever have days where I don’t have to leave the house and go do things, so I’m not really sure what to do with myself.
That said, I’ve got caught up on a bit of Life Admin and wrote a review (whilst clutching my stomach dramatically and occasionally being sick), so it’s not too bad.
I’d also really really like to finish The Goldfinch today because I’ve been reading it for weeks and I want to read something (anything!) else.
In other news it’s my birthday next week and then my driving test (oh god). I’m swinging wildly from desperately looking forward to it and wanting to be sick. At first I genuinely believed that it didn’t matter if I failed – hardly anyone passes first time, after all, and so my first run would be more of a practice… but then I realised I’d have to wait five weeks for another test and now I’m panicking.
Oh crap, that’s a week tomorrow.
Reading: The damn Goldfinch. I feel like I haven’t actually read anything else for months, which I suppose isn’t exactly true. But we have been together 2.5 weeks, even though I took a break to read Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls by David Sedaris.
Eating: Heh, I’m rubbish at eating. I either devour everything in sight or forget to eat for days. This morning I’ve had… something? I’ve drunk some peach-flavoured water… Oh! A jam tart! I had a jam tart!
And now I have a family sized bag of Kettlechips. I can eat a full bag of these in one sitting. I have no shame.
That said, since I’ve been ill I have actually been watching something… My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I know, can you believe it? I love it though. It’s obviously for children but then every so often there’s something slipped in there for adults too. Haha, don’t judge me!
I really, really want to have the money for a house deposit though as I’m 25 next week and it’s long past time. I’m working on it!
I work all day for various charities (three different ones) and then I come home to work on my transcription job, my reviews, my applications, the admin I do for a different charity, empyting my work inbox, replying to personal e-mails…
