It’s the Good Friday holiday today, and I was glad to stay home and get some much needed rest after a hectic 2 weeks at work. While my colleagues are either partying it up or busy spending time with their families, I spent the day all alone catching up on tv series, attempting to bake a couple of chicken pies and taking it easy.
Sometimes I want nothing more than to get away from the world and just hole up in my little cave, to savour some time and space alone. But I think, I’ve had quite enough of that for a while. I’m starting to feel almost like I’m existing in a separate dimension, without much human connection and little sense of belonging.
I guess it’s been hard with my pea being away. It’s more challenging than the average long-distance relationship, where you have enough time to sit down and share the biggest and smallest of things, and be there for each other.
Luckily, there are only 2 weeks left till I leave for SF, and I’m seeing a good friend tomorrow.
My pea is presenting his group project tomorrow, the last day of school! It’s quite surreal to think that almost 3 months have passed, and in about 2 weeks, we’ll be reunited.
On this last day of school, I wish him all the luck in the world, and hope he realizes how talented and special he is. That he’s a handsome, intelligent and capable man who can achieve anything he wants.
I recently “reluctantly” discovered the British TV series Downton Abbey and really, it was only because my American series’ were all on hiatus and I desperately wanted something to watch with my meals.
My friend K, had suggested it a while ago, and I mentally shelved it, thinking that it was some stuffy period drama. Funny coming from me, practically raised on stuffy BBC period dramas!
As luck would have it, I got the first season to test the waters and well, I’ve been hooked on it. It’s incredibly well-written, the actors are stellar and it’s quite historically interesting as well. I simply can’t tear myself away from the screen.
This Easter weekend, I have a feeling Downton Abbey and I are going to become very good friends indeed.
For some reason, I woke up feeling very exhausted and freaked out today. I guess I have a lot on my mind. It just feels like I have an endless list of things to do and little time to do them.
I’m very worried about my Mandarin voiceover tomorrow night; it will come after another insane day at work and I really hope I can deliver that level of intensity and pronounciation they want. I’ll have to try and pump myself up with caffeine.
Really bugged by the amount of peeing that the cats are doing on the couch as well; I barely have enough time to clean it up and then I’ll find another patch there. I really need a place to relax after being stressed out at work and it’s awful to come home to the stench of cat pee. It looks like I may have to buy yet another couch if this goes on, very frustrating.
I’m really glad there are just 23 days left before I see the bf. The distance and lack of time together are really getting to me.
Really hope this is just the PMS talking; the last time I felt like this was in Uni, when I was just so down and miserable I skipped a whole lot of lectures and tutes and just holed up at home, not wanting to see or talk to anyone.
