the waiting is killing me...

I sent in my first draft to both my supervisors yesterday. One said I'd get feedback this morning, the other said I'd get it this 'arvo' so I took the afternoon off, visited Joey at work (to find her giggling because she had just had to serve Mr Fokkens) and went home to fall asleep in front of the tv. It was a lot of fun, but also stressful because I had the nagging 'I should be working right now' feeling the whole time.

So anyway I figured I wouldn't get my draft back until 10am or so, so I slept in and only left home at about 8:30, and now it's 10:20 and I'm waiting and I can't do anything and it's really stressful! I just reached the point where working all the time was so normal (although not neccessarily getting anything done) that I don't have anything to do...

I have an essay, but I don't want to write it. Maybe I should fix up my other essay that I already wrote. I'll be grateful for that next week when I have both essays due and an exam to study for!

The Australia bought a car and it broke down already, so he's being way too polite to the people who sold it to him, I think he's trying to appeal to their better nature. They've just referred him to some dodgy mechanic friend of theirs.

We hung a piece of melon on a string for the iguana yesterday and she had so much fun chasing it around! It was adorable!

I feel really awkward sittinghere not working. I think I'll go do that essay.

i've been gone for awhile and realized i missed you and the south african gang. i haven't read to catch up with all that you're working on and deciding on, but i think you sound amazingly diligent and focused. and it seems like you like what you do. so, i too, believe you can do this. i hope the draft has come back to you with good results.
