I am finished with this university year. My final essay is in and I sat my final exam yesterday for the law class. A class I attended twice and studied for on the day before. I had to answer 4 essay questions. I managed to basically remember perfectly the legislation and regurgitate it for the exam for two questions. The last two, I think I remembered 90% and 80% of the legislation respectively. BUT I also have a special consideration waiver for the exam so if my result is terrible, they throw it out, and if it's not, it gets marked easier.

So that was my today. Going to the doctor and then going shopping. And then getting home and crashing because apparently instead of spending the rest of the day writing like I wanted to, the stress of the past...ever...got to me and I basically passed out. I woke up to eat some potatoes and soon I am headed to bed again.

Hopefully tomorrow I will have more energy! Then I can write. And begin to look forward to the trip to Dunedin and Fiordland as well as my trip to the US in about three weeks. Before that I need to clean my room like whoa. Organisation, ahoy!

You must all be so glad when you see a post from me these days. I can feel the excitement from here. I am so sorry this is all I talk about now. But seriously, I can't think about anything else when I feel so wretched.

I finished my law essay and went to class today. Class was okay because I was just sitting there. And I actually enjoyed being a loud-mouthed and opinionated pushy girl so that was nice. Then I had to go turn in my essay on the 6th floor of the history building. I didn't walk up the stairs because my knees can't take it, but I decided to walk down because I hate elevators and hey, we're still getting enough aftershocks that I filled my waterbottle up before I even got in the elevator to go up just in case one knocked the power out and I got stuck.

So I was walking down the stairs and I kept shaking. Mad, knee-knocking, entire body-trembling shaking. And it got gradually worse and worse as I went down. When I was on the third floor, I just burst into tears because I was shaking so badly. Strangely enough, my lecturer was returning to his office which is on the third floor so he whisked me in there and got me some tea while I sobbed on his desk about how I can't even walk down a flight of stairs. I finally managed to suck it up and head for the bus. During the ride Simon was kind enough to keep me distracted so I didn't sob the entire way home.

I napped for several hours and then ate tacos and lots of fruit. I still feel like hell. I think it's actually just one of those days I am stupidly overtired and my blood sugar isn't cooperating and there's nothing I can do about it. I have been eating all day to try to fix it. It tends to work itself out eventually but in the meantime I feel rotten inside. I seriously just ate a huge meal, a nectarine, a mandarin and a banana and I feel like I haven't eaten in days.

I hate my stupid body. (And I have to keep telling myself I am not dying because of my anxiety. SUCH FUN.)

I got the second part of my loan finally. Six class weeks before the end of the year, but at least that means all the work I have done this year wasn't for nothing!

We have been watching Star Trek: The Original Series and it is awesome. Even if the 60s-era misogyny is rampant. I love Bones, Spock and Kirk. They are so in a three-way relationship.

Mexican food and The Trip last night was awesome too! I love Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan! They are brilliant together. And now I want to watch A Cock and Bull Story again sometime! Their banter is the best thing about it. Their banter and Dylan Moran hanging with Gillian Anderson.

Since I had slept basically the entire weekend, I was up yesterday for 24 hours. So the last 45 minutes or so of the movie was hard to stay awake for, but I'm so glad I didn't fall asleep. And not just because no one needs to hear my great honking snores. I would have been so sad to miss it.

Sometime this week I need to start my law essay and make an appointment to get my prescription renewed. But things are looking up, even if I am still really tired. And soon there will be curry! :D And then I will eat more of my giant dinosaur-lolly from Laura!

..last night I had a dream Neil Gaiman was my dad. It was awesome. Even if, for ONCE, I wish I could not have a lucid dream. Strangely, being aware that your dreams aren't real even as you dream them is kind of tiring.

1. My family is the most awesome thing in the world.

2. Still waiting on my program to confirm my results to the loan people so I can get my second semester loan. If this is refused, this entire year is basically a wash. And it's 7 weeks til the end of term (break weeks not included) So. That sucks. But-

3. My family is still the most awesome thing in the world.

4. I now have all The Kills albums! :D

5. Simon is wonderful for cheering me up.

6. My family is seriously the most awesome thing in the world.

It's supposed to snow again here this weekend. Report! Apparently Sunday and Monday it's going to be all cold and gloooomy! So we shall shop tomorrow so there is no need to walk to the store in the snow. Wheee.

This very cold outbreak is likely to cause significant disruption to the country,as was the case with the last cold outbreak about two weeks ago.

The weather is welcome to disrupt my essay due date!

EDIT:

Lara: "I had three onions for lunch. I wanted some so I cooked three and ate them."
Alison: "I love you!"
Lara: "...I love you too. Why?"
Alison: "You decide you want something and then you fry it up and you eat it!"

I will be 30 on Friday! I keep forgetting it's happening because I'm so tired and generally blah. But it will be lovely. There will be a fry up and probably pie since I like it more than cake. Or both. And then later in the weekend, there will be a Laura too.

Tonight there is chicken strips and lots of veggies. Also pineapple. My body is like "frruuuiiittt?!?!?!" so I am letting it have some.

I still feel torn on the whole topic of study. So I guess we'll see how it goes.

Semester 2 has started and already I have had a class cancelled because the university just didn't figure out the class venue in time. I can't deal well with this. I miss the Social Work building. It was a safe and familiar place. Being in a different room every time and not knowing where classes are or when until an hour before is nerve-wracking and I am a person who likes constancy and normalcy. I have anxiety disorders. These things are important.

It might just be that I am still sick and overly tired, but I don't want to go back at all. And it's not that I don't love what I am studying, because I do (except for policy omfg). I still want to be a social worker and I still want my degree, but I am starting to think this year might be a wash. I can't concentrate on anything, and I already put off my first placement. Now apparently I should have heard about my second placement by now but I haven't so I had to email them to remind them I got permission to do the second placement without the first, given by the program coordinator who said he wasn't worried about me because dammit, I'm awesome. I don't know what do to. It's all...*sigh* I need my student loan, which is the only reason I stayed enrolled at all. If I can't concentrate enough to study, and yet I can't really drop out, what the ever livin' fuck can I do, eh?

Part of me wants to quit and go study the rest of my degree in Ireland or something. But I love the people here. Hrrnnnggghhhh. And I did love the city, but it's gone now.

Fuck it all. Fuck this earthquake. Fuck fuckity fuck fuck motherfucking fuck fuck fuck. Can it be December now so I can go see my mommy?

Decided to do my essay on disability policy since I finally realised the best idea to find a topic was to go back through notes to see what they focused on a lot because I R Smrt. So at least that's sorted.

Echo is doing just fine, which makes me feel so much better. She's getting bigger too. Well not really, but her legs aren't as spindly and her face is less kitteny. Her legs are filling out YAY. She's growing! We bought another covered litter box for the cats and when we brought them home, the kittens were playing in it while we set it up. This makes me want to get one of those huge kitty jungle gyms. You know. So we can have the most spoiled cats in the known universe. And no room. Anywhere.

Found some on Trade Me for cheaper than in the pet shop. BWUAHHAHAA!

WHY CAN'T I THINK OF A SOCIAL POLICY ISSUE TO WRITE AN ESSAY ABOUT?!

Oh right, because social policy is about as interesting as watching paint dry.

I could write about mental health or homelessness again, but I don't know if that is too broad and I would need to narrow it down. I could do biculturalism as well, but I am quite tired of writing essays on Puao-te-ata-tu even if I think it's quite an impressive piece of social policy work.

Oh my god, even this entry is boring. Shit on a stick.

Have an article. Margaret Thatcher refuses to meet with Sarah Palin. You know, Thatcher, I am not a fan of you. That's...putting it lightly. But lol.

♣ Woke up every time the kitties sneezed last night. They are doing heaps better today though, but Echo had one coughing fit (compared to the dozens she was having a day, this is awesome) and Helios still sounds like a croaky boy when he purrs half the time, but Ariadne seems to be just fine.

♣ Worked more on what seems like the spreadsheet that WILL.NOT.DIE for my mother. Wonder why it was sent to me in the first place if it wasn't...like...correct. (Note this isn't my mother's fault, it's the fault of the person who built the spreadsheet. And since spreadsheets are boring, no one cares)

♣ Slept all day because of disturbed night sleep.

♣ Drank apple pie tea. OMGteagasm.

♣ Echo is the cutest, tiny kitten IN THE WORLD.

♣ Didn't even look at RPGs today. Wonder why I agree to do action plots when I hate action and cannot write it. Though the reason I didn't look was lack of time, not motivation.

♣ Instead of looking at RPGs now, I will look at my STUPID ESSAY due on Monday.

♣ Made quesadillas. Yum.

♣ I wish Social Policy Essays would die :D
