OMG I thought I'd never say this, but it's hard trying to focus on this sodding project assessment thing. I have to have the second draft done today so I can send it to my tutors, but I cannot seem to muster any enthusiasm for it whatsoever. Instead I'm doing the age-old exercise of hitting the refresh button repeatedly, hoping someone will be commenting on my posts...I'm bored.

I think the most important thing I learned in this past year was that when it comes to my body, I'll always lose. Before, I used to ignore the signals it sent me, figuring that the best cure for a cold was 8 hours of work and a nice brisk walk, but after being continuiously sick for 5 months this year, I'm trying out a different approach. I fold. Yesterday, I got a terrible, sudden cold and spent the entire night tossing and turning without sleeping. So I promptly cancelled everything today (except a doctor's appointment, but you know, if I cancelled it because I was sick that would be rather ironic), slept all day and drank lots of tea. I'm gonna be good to myself from now on. Who knows, maybe it'll be good for me.

On a different note, I've totally forgotten to keep track of when West ham is playing for the rest of the season. I know, I'm terrible, but all my time has been eaten up by the schoolwork. Anyone know if I've missed any games so far? How are we doing? Still in 9th place? *crosses fingers*

In other news, I've just started to watch BSG from the start to get ready for the next season, coming in just under 2 weeks. God, I love that show! *spins and twirls in excitement for new episodes*

I know I know, three unrelated topics in one post...I'm going to bed.

I don't know the exact English wording for this, but in Norwegian it's called "pausemusikk" (Pause or waiting music). Basically, it's the music you hear while you wait for someone to answer the phone. Now, I understand the concept of it. UiO (my university) doesn't have it, and the booming silence while you wait for someone to answer, not knowing if you might have been disconnected is frustrating. But you know what is more frustrating than that? Bad waiting music.

I will agree that waiting music is good because it makes the person in line know that s/he is still connected and it gives the person something to listen to that might make sure s/he doesn't hang up. What I don't understand is how someone, anyone could think that putting four lines of bad classical music on repeat is anything less than torture. It was horrible. It was like someone was practicing one of Hayden's pieces but only knew the first four lines and was trying to make it sound like a complete song, and failing miserably. Why would they do this to anyone? Why? I'd prefer Chinese water torture to this! (I got through after a few minutes, but it felt like an eternity. If this is what they do to you in Hell, I might consider being a better person).

I wasn't going out yesterday because usually, if I go out without [ profile] aj_stalin, something bad happens. But since Eivind decided to succumb to peer pressure I caved and went out. And it was really nice! We had a few beers and talked to strangers. Too bad someone didn't wanna give me candy to get me to get in a car. I could have used a ride home. I even gave away my number to someone I didn't go home with, and he texted me the same night. Is that sweet or what?

Today I've tried and failed to do some reading. Now, I'm going to write a little bit but basically, I'm going to relax.

Good weekend.

So, this year I decided to do the noble thing and not have a job outside of studying. I'm beginning to think it may have been a bad idea. I just calculated how much money I have for food and stuff per day after all bills, and it's 9 dollars and 30 cents per day. That's not a lot, especially not with Norwegian food prices. It means I cannot buy new winter boots (and I need that), or new winter clothes (not as important, but still). Shit. It means I can barely eat, and not go out. Help me out here guys.

What should I do?
