Things have a way of working themselves out, it’s true. The financial woes turned out be not nearly as drastic as I thought. That will teach me for jumping to the worst case scenario and not listening properly to all the information. Automatically, when something like this happens, my brain just starts jumping around and shouting ‘Oh shit, oh fuck. This could not possibly get any worse. Look what you’ve done. Oh shit, oh fuck.’ Now that I’ve calmed down, found out the facts, I’ve realised it isn’t as bad as first thought. The woes are still there but instead of being daunting, it’s turned out to be quite manageable. Praise sweet baby cheeses.
The essays back in June that caused me so much grief that I wanted to want to dig my brain out of my head with a spoon couldn’t have gone too badly because I found out today my overall semester marks: a distinction for Modern Texts and a high distinction for Australian Literature. I sat here on the couch with a big stupid grin on my face, thinking that all the swearing and weird, tearless crying I did was worth it to get good results.
The good day continued when I stopped to let a woman reverse out of a park that I wanted. As she pulled out, she drove passed me really slowly and wound down her window. I cautiously wound down mine but was taken aback when she held out her parking ticket, telling me it still had an hour left on it. Win!
I bought myself something frivolous to celebrate my good marks. I went to the supermarket and walked straight to an empty register. My niece pointed her finger at me quite aggressively and said “You are my friend.” It was such a great day and I felt like running down the street, high fiving every person I saw.
I am so excited about the travelling journal. I’d love for more people to join in, so if you didn’t see my last post and don’t know what the sweet hell I’m talking about, you can check it out here. The more, the merrier.
I’m off to Melbourne tomorrow after work. I’m going to spend some time with my bad influence of a friend and let off some built-up steam. It’s going to be fun, expensive and cause me a headache on Sunday and I cannot wait.
Any exciting adventures planned for you?
