My god, what a shit of a day.
I won't go into the details, but 5 and a half hours to fix one problem is not an enjoyable experience
. Especially when you have next to no idea what you're doing, and the one person who does is on leave for 2 more weeks. Exciting.
Thank god I get to go home to my gorgeous girlfriend
, whom I haven't seen since Tuesday
afternoon! I mean, that's two days! Damn that bastard who hit her car...
Still, at least the cab trips killed some time, and the day went fairly fast, as it does when you're trying to nut out a frustrating problem. Watching god knows how many reinstalls of Unicenter TNG
is not fun though. But it's over now, I get to leave in 20 minutes, and then there's only a driving lesson
stopping me from ravaging
the body of my loved one
. Ooh yeh.
I don't particularly enjoy driving lesson
s though. Everybody always gasps in horror
when I tell them I don't enjoy driving
, but really, I don't. I'm getting my license
because it's practical, it'll get me places faster (once I get a car
), and I can drive Anna
back to my place if she doesn't feel up to it. (Meaning I'll get to see her more. See? Practical
.) But no, I don't particularly enjoy driving. Takes too much concentration
to not hit stuff, and stay alert
of my surroundings. I mean, I'm sure it'll get easier once I get used to it, but even then, I'm sure it'll stress me out like it does now. I come out of driving lessons with the back of my shirt soaked in sweat
, not because I'm necessarily afraid I'm going to hit anything, just because I've been concentrating so hard and stressing out a bit.
I suspect I have a minor phobia of driving
, actually. I have semi-nightmares
about it sometimes.
So, yes. That's why I'm getting my license nearly 3 years later than I am legally allowed to, hehe. At least I'm not alone, a fair few of my friends still don't have theirs either, so it's not like I'm the last one.
I have to re-enrol
this week, for my last year of uni
next year. (Yay! I'm nearly qualified
for... stuff!) This is the first year I actually get to choose elective
s, which is cool. Unfortunately, I also have to enrol for the Summer Semester
, because I failed
one subject of Maths
in first year. Meaning I have to take days of from work without pay
. And I like pay.
Oh shit, I also have to do my taxes
And, with the mention of taxes, this daylog is officially dead
