Dear university

Sunday, February 27, 2011

Dear university,

Why must you be so hard? Why must you ask hard questions and then make me feel stoopid because I don't know the answer? Why must you use words that I don't know? Why, why, why!

Uni hasn't even started for the year, I am just being a good girl and doing class prep (start as you mean to go on...) and you are asking me silly questions. Like "Why is there a learning languages curriculum?". Because someone who is much smarter than me decided it would be a good idea. The end.


Gahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Expect to hear a lot of moaning about assignments this year. 2 papers look easy, the others...well...pray for me.

My papers this year are just silly. Lots of polical BS that we have to do and not enough focus on HOW to teach.

Gahhhhhhhhhhh.

In other news, I dyed my hair. Its slightly reddish. I needed to cover my greys. Yes, my greys. Next stop, eye cream for those wrinkles! I still get pimples, I shouldn't get greys and wrinkles yet!

I got myself several cute headbands for working out, since my hair doesn't do ponytails anymore.


Scuse the no make up look.

I also got myself another inhaler (after having to go to the emergency medical centre because I was having an asthma attack and didn't have an inhaler. Fun way to spend a Saturday). Now I have no excuses, I will be going for a walk tomorrow!

You may (or may not, I won't be offended) know that I used to plan out my workouts a week in advance. I liked doing that, but I probably will hold off for a couple of weeks because of my knee. I need to start slowly and listen to my body and all that jazz, so it is probably best if I just do what I can on the day.

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd I had dinner with my folks, a very healthy grilled lamb steak with veggies. Washed down with 3 glasses of sauv blanc. Opps. Well, they were half glasses, so more like 1.5-2 glasses. My parents are borderline alcoholics (for realz but they don't want help and its their business) so I tend to drink when I'm with them, coz its what the cool kids are doing.

And I think thats all. I'm gonna try and get some sleep because the kids upstairs woke me up at 4am, 6am and again at 7.45am this morning. The last one was with a "who can jump off the couch and make the biggest bang" comp, or something simliar. I made the man go and talk to their parents, because its a Sunday and we were sleeping.

Night!

    Your blog is always so fun to read; you are so naturally funny. And DANG, I wish I looked like that without makeup! I look like DEATH -- I am telling you, DEATH -- without makeup, so much so that once, when I showed up to my usual babysitting job with no makeup on (I was running late), the little girl took one look at me and started CRYING. So. We will not be repeating that mistake again.

Anyway, just had to tell you that you are entertaining. emoticon

Lets talk about knees, baby.

Friday, February 25, 2011

I have been to the physio and I got the all clear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

So far I am cleared to start walking a few times a week. I can walk for a few weeks and slooooooowly start jogging again.

I'm excited. Really.

Except that I have misplaced my inhaler and there is no way in hell I am exercising without it, I'm not stupid. I seriously have NO idea where I put it, so I am relying on my orange (morning and night) inhaler to get me through until I find it/get another one from my doctor. But thats not one I can just take whenever. So a slow start back into it.

And....thats all I think...

    That was great, getting a glimpse into who you are. However, I will be looking to find out what capsicum is. And I must find the recipe for coconut cupcakes. Yummy!

Chopped it all off

Thursday, February 24, 2011

Life goes on up here in Auckland. I had a haircut yesterday. And its short.

Natural



Straight



There is one piece that is unstraightenable. I swear, it always sticks out!

I've gotten mainly positive comments, which is good.

I literally walked in and told the hairdresser that I wanted it shorter and layered, beyond that it was up to her. She had wanted to try this cut, so she described it and I said go for it. She was excited to try the cut, she said she loves people who just let her play!!

    Great haircut you got! Looks great both ways, and I have wayward hair too. :-) Short cuts never sat quite how the hairdresser envisioned, but then I found a lady who was great with unruly waves and the problem was solved. Good hairdressers are worth their weight in hair! LOL

    Cute hair cut!
I have the opposite problem- my hair is so straight, it won't curl and STAY curled.
Read your post about CHCH. Been thinking about everyone there. (sigh...)

    I LOVE it! Looks great on you...shows off your pretty face and bright smile!

Now, send me some be strong thoughts that I have the guts to tell my hairdresser that I'm tired of growing this hair out (something she wanted to try one me) and I want a short-short cut.

    Oh I love your hair! Especially with the nautral wave. Mine is too long and heavy for my wave to hold, but when it was short it did similar things. Beautiful!

    You are adorable! I LOVE that the chunks of hair go in all different directions - some of us envy the ability to achieve that! I have a feeling that there IS no wrong or bad haircut for you -- you'd be lovely no matter what. emoticon

    I like it :-)

A few years ago I took my daughter to my hairdresser. She wanted her hair layered and he wouldn't do it. After he washed it and towel dried it, he flicked a few strands in various places around her head. Some crinkled, and some stayed straight. He said that it would cause problems when it was dried if it was layered. She was really miffed with him because he gave her a basic cut, but it WAS a very good cut. She flatly refused to go back to him. A few years later another hairdresser (very young but qualified) told her that her hair would be fantastic to layer. She layered it - her hair did exactly what my hairdresser - a very experienced one - told us it would do!

I ditto LOVEUNDERLINED! Actually, your hair isn't all that looks fantastic - YOU do too :-)

Many thanks

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Thanks to everyone who posted supportive comments on my last blog. The situation in Chch is still pretty dire, and I have been keeping up with everything on the news. It is constant, 6am-11pm. There are still people being rescued alive, so there is still hope!
