OK so today I reached the end of my rope. We can't pay our rent tomorrow. We had to beg Russells mum to lend us some money so that we could pay the rent. I hate doing that. I hate struggling. I hate being poor. I hate it. And the stupid thing is that I don't HAVE to do it. I'm only 22 and I'm studying. My parents are happy to have me back at home (boyfriend and all) and would charge us minimal board. We would be able to save and have some money for luxuries. We would have our own space, but would need to share a kitchen with my parents. We could save for a deposit on a house, or a holiday or something, as well as being able to buy stuff like new clothes, which I actually need.
I have pitched the idea to Russell, and he said he will think about it, but he doesn't like my dad that much so he isn't sure. Dad is in the military and travels A LOT so he would barely be home, so I don't think it would be too much of an issue.
We'll see. As far as I am concerned I am going with or without him. I don't want to struggle this much if I don't have to. If I was working full time, or married or something then that would be different.

Instead I am munching on an apple. Go me and my apple eating.
Seriously though, that swap saved me 150 calories. I can get a coffee or something instead!!
It is important to note that I'm not a breakfast person, so an apple is about all I can handle. I have a larger morning snack to make up for it.

First day of my last year of uni. Come on graduation!!!
I have done all but one subjects prep work, entered my food into sparkpeople and am about to pack my lunch. I know what I am wearing and I will straighten my hair tonight. I am ready.
But I don't wannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnna go. Don't make me.
Its not the subjects, if we are being honest. I mean, yeah, they suck, but my main reason for not walking to go to uni is the people.
On here I seem confident and happy. And in my own home I am. But in social situations I really suck and as a result I have 1 friend at uni, and she is only in 1 of my classes. Its a lonely place for me to be and I really dread having to go. I just don't get along well with a lot of people. I'm "not their cup of tea" for lack of a better phrase. I know that I have unpopular opinions and I know that I am loud and annoying. But that is who I am, and my friends love me for who I am. But my friends aren't at uni. I just have to remind myself that I do have friends, I'm not a loser and I do have people who love me, even if they aren't there with me.
Maybe I'll take a book, for the down time?
Wish me luck people! I'm gonna need it!
PS. I also wanted to loose 20kg over the summer, so at least I would have a hot body to keep me company. That didn't work... So I am recommited and ready to loose this weight. No more Mr fat chick!

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.
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.
