This week I hurt my wrist. I've torn something, or sprained something, or broken something. And it's my right hand, so it has meant that I basically don't get to do anything... I just sit here and watch TV, try to read (through the pain and painkiller haze) and just generally feel bored.
This month I haven't really completed many of my reading challenges. I didn't complete my semester of study. And I probably have a whole list of other things that haven't been completed. And at some point a few weeks ago, this was a huge issue. But, now... not so much. I've kind of come to terms with the fact that things have been changing pretty drastically for me and it's time to sit back and rethink.
This week was Tyson's first stint away. It was only four days, instead of the usual week, but it's still been weird. For a couple that has spent almost every two days together since they met, it's a weird feeling. We've been living together for over four years, and not having him around has just been... odd.
As those of you who read this know (if, there are in fact, any of you), I have been trying to partake in reading challenges. October has been my second month. And honestly, it was a failure. Probably because the sheer volume of reading challenges I decided to attempt, and probably because of the amount of study and work that I've had on. Really, October has just been a lost month all round.
Today my dog turns two. Which is why this post is a little delayed. And instead of writing a nostalgic reflection on how quickly time has gone, I thought that I would do a bit of a photo diary. So here is my little miss Beagle, or devil dog over the past few years.
This Saturday just gone, I worked at a wedding. It was beautiful, I had fun working with the other girls, but honestly, the entire charade felt really contrived. Especially when the bride and groom had their first dance. Every step had been carefully manufactured and they looked like they were concentrating so hard on the steps, that they couldn't actually enjoy each other's company. Which made me wonder, am I alone in thinking that weddings are a ridiculous charade, or am I just a little different (alright, I do know the answer to this according to friends and family, but...)
This weekend Tys (my partner) and I went on a road trip with our friends to an engagement party. The fact that it was in Port Lincoln, an area I used to see / travel through frequently as a child made an already fun journey into something that was really nostalgic. The fact that two of our best friends were accompanying us and it was beautiful weather... it was a little sad to come home. Until we opened the door and saw our puppies, and everything was happy and joyful again.
The end of September and my first month of participating in reading challenges has come to a close. And it's been a really fun experience! I have this incredibly frustrating habit of picking up one series, reading a book or two and then switching to another... by completing reading challenges, I'm able to find an excuse to read books that are part of a series that I may have put down a year ago.
I had an assignment due today. And I haven't even started it. I thought that I had started to think about it, so I had a bit of an idea about what I needed to do. But, it turns out that my case study has already been picked for me, so it is nothing like what I thought. Which means I'm screwed. It's not getting handed in on time. I'm just hoping to get it in less than 24 hours late... but even that feels kind of unlikely. I've spent 2 hours staring at the screen and the template trying to figure out what I'm actually doing. Why oh why did I choose a business subject?!?!? I know nothing about business!
