;Today:
In my head:

If the Brakeman Turns my Way -- Bright Eyes

On my mind:
Midterms.... really... I swear.

In my tummy:
Milk and honey (hehe rhymes).


And life story time...
I still feel a little sick today.
As luck would have it I appear to have fallen for the only guy who is more keen on avoiding relationships than I am. Hmm I don't really ever fall for people, but this one guy just seemed like someone that might be worth my time... Oh well back to work I go.
Lots of chemistry math and physics to do after all. Every week is a busy week here. -_-

That's all I have to say.. I'm going home on Saturday to visit the pets and see four friends and have Thanksgiving dinner though. Which I am semi excited I guess. :p I am very on edge lately and it doesn't take much to get the water works going. Quite annoying really. But I'll be okay, just a temporary disturbance.
That's all for now. Bedtime.

*hugs* My advice? Settle into university life before getting a boyfriend. Let things take their course and just be his friend. Never know what could develop after that.

I'm so settled though! I've never been so overall happy before. xD Being away from my family has done some crazy good for me. . . sadly. I do think I'm going to relocate there permanently next year. . .

;Today:
In my head:

Seashell Tale -- Bright Eyes

On my mind:
Blank.

In my tummy:
Milk and honey (it's my passion and the single most comforting food out there).


And life story time...
The position I got for College Royal... Cat show assistant. I didn't mention that cats make me a tad bit nervous, I do need to get over that somehow anyway if I want to become a vet...

He told my I look nice yesterday.

I am very at peace with myself right now.

I have very little expectation of people in my life. Which is probably why I rarely get upset with them.

It's not that I couldn't rely on them if I had to. . . I just prefer to manage things myself. . . Though I know how to ask for help at the same time. . .



I am excited to go home and toast bad wine with good friends.

Cat show? Your university has a cat show? Sheesh. Most US colleges just have Homecoming. o.O

Being away from family is a good thing for anyone. I wish I could get away from mine for a while, even for vacation. Haven't been on a vacation in over two years and even then, I was with my family.

Take it easy with the boy. He'll come around. Try giving him pickled milkweed. Tell him it's a Polish love tradition.
