first world problems

“I decided to go join the birds. I eat lots of bread already and I’m tired of fighting.”

Back to real life tomorrow, ho hum. I came home to my mother’s house to do some pet-sitting, and attend my uncle’s birthday lunch, and now that’s all done, I’m headed back to Sydney.

It’s going to be one of those very long weeks – class on Tuesday from ten til noon, then again at five til seven, plus lunch with friends, and a coffee-date with another friend. Then on Wednesday, a haircut on the other side of the city finally (I’m beginning to look like some kind of fluffy marsupial; I love my fringe, but gosh it takes a lot more upkeep than layers), and a class from one til two. Thursday is my day off, but I have a paper due next Monday, plus half a ton of work on my honors project that it’s more like a study-day. Friday, my mother is coming down for the day; Saturday, I’m headed to a knitting workshop, and Sunday I have to finish my paper. It’s an exciting life, that’s for sure ;)

I know I just finished my summer break, but I wish I could rewind time, just live in a happy bubble, where I could write and swim and draw and read. I don’t feel like functioning yet. Though behaving like a functioning adult isn’t something that I feel like doing much of the time. I kind of have a level of functionality that works for me, but isn’t really sustainable for earning a living or socialising, sadly. But I made a promise last year, that I would put myself out there, would try some new stuff. And it worked! I definitely got out of my comfort zone; same verse this year, definitely.

And now I have to go and somehow cram all my things into a single suitcase and backpack.  :kiss:

Movie Night!

So, I’m on the mend, back in Sydney, and headed to the movies with some friends yesterday to see Civil War. Verdict? Solid film that somewhat makes up for the train-wreck of The Age of Ultron that makes me want to give therapy kittens and fuzzy blankets to all of the characters.  :nyah:

It was super fun to go out to the movies with friends – I haven’t had anyone to hang out with in a very long time, since my best friend from high school moved away, my best friend from childhood moved interstate, and all my other high school friends kind of ditched me when we graduated. So, yes, it was awesome. We’re tentatively planning on doing it again in a few weeks, when XMen: Apocalypse is released. :cool:

Today was meant to include a trip to Books Kinokuniya for Free Comic Book Day, but I arrived forty-five minutes before the store even opened, and the queue went right around the block. Like, along George St, past Topshop and right around to Pitt St. Not today, Satan. I can snag scans from the free comic books online, and buy my comics online. I was stunned, because last year it was chaos in-store, but there was no queue. I blame the addition of the Maid Cafe – the menu sounded delicious. XD

Now, I’m going to curl up with a bowl of udon and watch cartoons, because how else does someone in their 20s spend a Saturday night? ;)
