This week there are a few things I need to get off my chest.
Other than homework, which is like taking over my whole Universe, but I won’t bore you with that, and it’s all good because I seriously love this stuff. Even the database. Not kidding.
But there is some other stuff, that makes me wonder just what the hell some people are thinking, or if they are indeed even thinking at all.
The first thing is people driving.
Over the last three weeks I have done a lot of driving, school is about a 40 minute drive from where I live. I really don’t mind the commute, it has been a beautiful fall and the drive is scenic and fairly uncomplicated. Usually.
There have been a few days when I have come home way more stressed than I need to be.
I always leave in the morning with plenty of time. I take into account that possibly there will be some kind of malfunction or f*&)ing idiot driver that I won’t be able to ditch.
Let me explain that I am on a two lane highway, I could go the freeway, but it is the most bland drive on the face of the planet and I prefer to go the old highway as it follows the ocean.
Unfortunately every old person that can barely see over the dash of their car prefers to drive this way too. Who the hell knows why they are up driving around at 7:30 in the morning. I suggest staying in bed if you have the choice, either that or drive the damn speed limit.
Why is it that people are so oblivious to what is going on around them when they drive? Do you realize you have mirrors on your car for a reason?
Looking in them once and a while to see that there are indeed fifty cars lined up behind you because the speed limit is 80 km an hour and you insist on going 50 km is probably a good idea. Road rage didn’t just create itself, old people and people that drive without paying attention are the cause of that. And if you are one of these drivers reading this, don’t email me pissed off, seriously…all I ask is that you pay attention to what is going on around you, and if you do have a line up that could reach Mars behind you, pull the fuck over and let us go by you. It really is a easy solution for everyone, right?
It makes me appreciate the logging roads even more, because when you are in the bush, people are polite. They really are. It could be because you have no idea whether the guy behind you has a 30-6 Remington in the back seat or not, but I doubt it…I think it is mostly because people are just glad to be on a road without idiots, if someone is going faster than you, you pull over and let them go by. Always.
There is never ever a situation like there is on the highway. Driving for ten miles going 30km under the speed limit just doesn’t happen in the bush. Obviously. Thankfully.
The other thing that has been bothering me, is how hungry I am. I have been trying to stay on the no gluten diet, I really have…but after weighing the pros and cons of said situation I have decided that for the good of mankind I am going to loosen up on myself a bit.
I am just too hungry, which is NOT a good thing with me. I have such limited time to eat, that it has to be something that will stay with me. Eating Chex rice cereal for breakfast with a banana and a smoothie is NOT cutting it. I am starving by 10:30. I am not sure what it is about thinking that makes you hungrier, but it does. The other problem is that I have about 10 minutes to eat between classes. So I never have time to actually eat everything I have brought.
I need substance.
I need a fucking sandwich.
So I have decided that I won’t kill myself and once and a while, or at least two times a week, it will be okay to eat some damn bread. I haven’t found a huge change in my body since I stopped eating it to tell you the truth, and as long as I eat it in moderation…what the hell, right? I know that is a total cop out, and I have been beating myself up about it for weeks…but I am now over it. I tried it, it was good, it taught me a lot about myself and my eating habits…and I have indeed changed things for the better.
But if you see me eating a piece of bread, that’s just the way it has to go.
Well I have basically used up the allotted bitching time for blogging. Yes I now have a schedule that I have to try and stick too. Having 40 hours of homework and 4 days to do it is a challenge to say the least.
And I really need to vacuum my house. It’s been weeks, and I am not sure but we may have a new dog living here, it’s hard to tell if it’s real or just a big assed hairball.
Happy Thursday everyone, see you on Sunday!! xox
