I don't have anything particularly deep or even really interesting to say today... :-P Life has been flying by without me realizing it, which was highlighted this morning by my empty food locker and lack of clean clothes. (Since when has my food supply been dwindling? When was the last time I did laundry?)
So after my 8:30 Business in Asia class (during which I wrote up a grocery list) I went shopping, spending more on groceries than I have before in any one trip this semester. Of course, this is due to the fact that I decdided to actually buy some meat and add protein to my diet. It's so easy to exist on nothing but pasta and sandwiches...I've probably been eating waaay too many carbs this semester. After that I did my laundry, which I think hasn't been done in over a month. I was suprised; I managed to do most of it in 2 washerloads and one dryer load...and it even all dried in half an hour! I'm stingy and don't like to put them in for more than that because it costs $1 for every 15 minutes in the dryer.
I'm suprised...I've even managed to be a bit productive in the classwork sector of my life today as well. Even though I am completely ignoring the essay that's supposed to be due Friday, I went to the library and got some books about the works of DH Lawrence; I have an essay about the role of experimentation in the process of theorising the novel due next Friday, and I'm going to be using Women in Love and Dracula, I think. Hopefully this essay will be less painful to write than the last; I got a 68% on it, which isn't bad here, but I'd like to get a distinction or High Distinction in the overall course, if I can (which would be 70% and up).
I was supposed to go out tonight to "Connections", the gay club in Perth, with a girl I went out with one Saturday, but I don't think it's going to happen for three reasons: 1) She hasn't contacted me, 2)I have a ton of work to do, and 3)I'm seriously lacking in the money department. So....yeah. And no, it wasn't a *date* date...it was just a "hey, we're both lesbians, so let's hang out and go have fun as friends date"...I have a girlfriend at home and I don't think she would appreciate me dating people here!
Anyways, like I said before, this post isn't at all interesting and I highly doubt anyone's still reading, but I just felt like posting today. It's a beautiful day, and I've been productive, and that makes me happy. :) Hopefully dinner tonight will be good...it's one of the 2 nights a week we get someone to come in and cook a big dinner for us. Yay for a real meal.
And on that note...I'm off to resubmerge myself in the world of DH Lawrence, and later, Harper Lee (since I really should finish To Kill A Mockingbird by class tomorrow morning).
