Day 02 - Where I'd like to be in 10 years.

Obviously I'd like to be financially secure, with a roof over my head and enough food to eat and clothes on my back. Other than that, I hope that by then I'd have at least gotten one book published, been a few places around the world, live with all the pets I ever wanted and maybe I guess be with someone who I adore. And it goes without saying, happiness and contenment.

That's about it.
meme stolen from [livejournal.com profile] ionizable because gawddayum, its been a long time since I did one.



Day 01 - I am single as a solitary pringle. Always have been up until now. Never dated, never made out with someone, the whole shebang etc. I did get asked out on a date once but I did not like the dude in question so I told him I had an exam. He suggested another time and day after my exams were done but I prevaricated because I refuse to go out with people who do not make me feel comfortable and this chap, who was my next door neighbor by the way had this knack of making me feel supremely uncomfortable. That was way back in the 12th grade.

The thing is I studied in a all-girls Catholic school and a all-girls Catholic convent. So as a result, I didn't learn how to interact with people who were not ladies and I was absolutely terrified of dudes. I couldn't even look them in the eye, let alone say a word or two to them.

But when I went on to do my post-grad, I decided it was time for me to pull-up my boots and get to interacting. The first few months, I was floundering but after that I managed and now I can look a dude in the eye and talk and have two excellent dude friends. Ooh, and postgrad too was where I developed some serious crushes (one only and lmao, I remember once me and friend were hiding in the bushes and checking this dude out.). I never made them progress beyond the point of a crush though because, one - no guts, two - or rather more importantly, I realized I do not do casual. I'm either all in or all out. I tend to be more invested than the other person and that way only lies to disaster.

I am also the person who when they crush pretends that the other person dosen't exist. I can't help it because my face is terribly expressive and if I had to look at the person I was crushing on as I passed by, my face would be the death of me. Hmm. I do need to find me some courage. At least acknowledging the other person is there would be a start. :D

I also feel compelled to admit that despite having no relationship expert whatsoever, I am the person who apparently doles out relationship advice and good advice at that. :D

So, I got my results. 77.3% (GET IT, ME!)

My Mom dropped the phone in shock. A) And then asked me if I was well.B) Then asked me if I was playing a bad joke. C)Then asked me why I lied to her.

A - Because I'm the Queen of the middlin sixties. Mid seventies in an end-sem exam is unprecedented and unheard of.
B - Same as above. Shit like this never happens to me. NEVER.
C - Cause ever since the exams ended, I was convinced I would fail one of my papers cause it was too lenghty and I was unable to finish it and therefore I left a twenty-marker and I've been hyperventilating since then. Also in another paper, I was so stress I was pretty sure I mixed up answers (I did, but not on such a large scale as my fevered imagination was imagining). Therefore to prep my Mom beforehand, I told her that I just might have an arrear this time, so that if it happened, she would not have a meltdown of epic proportions. When the results actually came and I told Mummy she asked me why I lied. As if I knew why my examiners were so generous. I had actually schooled myself to accept my arrear with grace(I told myself I would lose my shit later on in private.)

So yeah. In the end Mummy was very happy. I'm happy too. Cause this brings my average upto 72% and I'm 3% away from reaching my intended average. Reaching that will make me die happy. And it will also make Mummy shut up cause my GPA will be like UP there and she can't say I didnt do well. So here's hoping I do well. :)
