Do you ever have one of those mornings where, as you are waking up, you let out a little squee of delight in that first little stretch before you open your eyes, knowing that you’ve had a restful sleep and are ready to face the day? Then you look over at your clock and it reads 6:07 and you’re all “oooo hells to the NO!” as you slip your sleep mask back over your face trying to block out the beautiful sun shining in your window beckoning you to wake up and join the day?
Yeah that’s pretty much been my routine all freaking week. Like I get it, it’s spring, the sun is the most beautiful thing in the whole world, but when it’s 6 am and I don’t have to be awake, I’m going to be kind of angry.
I like to just lay in bed. Once I’m awake, I’m awake, so there really is no point in trying to get back to sleep. But this morning I had a little extra time to think since I refuse to get out of my bed until at least 7am. Since it’s now 7:25 and I have finished my breakfast and read all my emails, I’ve decided to share with you some things that I was thinking about:
I found out yesterday that next Friday is an “extra” national holiday. Thursday is Children’s day so I have it off work. But then everyone was like “um yo – Thursday is a holiday, then go back to work on Friday, then off for the weekend? Come on!!!!” So apparently the Korean government has decided to make it a holiday! WOOT!
Next week is going to be kind of easy peasy. Wednesday we aren’t having regular classes so I only have to teach Monday and Tuesday. Now I have to figure out what to do with my 4 day weekend.
It’s the anniversary of L’s death in a few weeks, so my mind keeps drifting back to him lately. It’s kind of a bummer, but also inspirational. I know I’ll be making a post about it on the actual anniversary (May 24th), but the idea of his death kind of linked into my AtoZ challenge. And I got an idea for next year! Fallen Canadian soldiers. I’ve added it to the list of topics that I’ve started on my computer because I’m a nerd like that (I have 7 ideas on the list already….)
I had the CREEPIEST dream last night. I’m not sure if it was just a regular dream, or a drug induced dream. I took a full muscle relaxer last night right before I went to sleep. Usually I only take 1/2 of one but it was late and I couldn’t be bothered to find a knife to cut it in half (I literally can’t break them). Anyways, so in my dream I was talking with my mama, and one of my molars falls out. Now I’ve been having a little bit of pain in one of my molars so maybe that’s why it appeared in a dream. But then we kept talking, and the longer we talked, the more teeth just like crumbled in my mouth and started falling out! Like shattering and falling out. It felt SO REAL. I had to force myself awake and I sat in my bed running my fingers along my teeth for a few minutes before I was calm enough to go back to sleep.
I’m angry because both sets of headphones that I own DIED over the last three days. I was all “oh one is dead, that’s ok, I’ll just use this other pair until I’m out on Saturday and can buy a new pair”. I have one set plugged into my laptop and another set in my purse so I can listen to music on my phone. Well now I am headphoneless and feel bad for wanting to waste time on my computer watching tv shows or listening to music because it’s 7:47am and Noisy Neighbour isn’t up yet (he’s kind of stopped being that noisy since we met in the elevator a while ago, but ya’ll know him as that so I’m gonna keep it up).
Ok, so you know my post about my heart being a problem? Well the same day that Mr. Infatuation changed his profile picture, a friend of mine emailed me saying that they had hung out. She is his best friend, and we would normally do things together. It turned out he was in love with her (probably the same way I’m in love with him) but she’s not interested. It kind of ruined their friendship for a solid 3 months. They dated for a few months when they were in high school but that was like 8-9 years ago and she’s not wanting to go back to that, and now they are friends again. Since both things happened on the same day, I decided to send him a facebook message. I instantly regretting it thinking “T, ya gotta pull it together girl! He’s not going to message you back, it’s a waste of time and anticipation for the reply.” Well he actually REPLIED! I was shocked! Of course it sent my little heart into like “omg omg omg *teenager squeal*” mode. And he even said the caricature that I posted was “very nice” Which of course I read as “very pretty”. Gah like an adrenaline shot Pulp Fiction style straight into my heart. So now my heart is all hopeful again, cos he literally will have 50 unread text messages on his phone at any given time, and he decided to read and reply to mine….omg. Do you see what I have become?! GAH I simultaneously want to break out into a lovey Disney song and punch myself in the throat for being so stupidly girly.
So yup….that’s pretty much the range of thoughts from 6-645 while I refused to get out of bed, just laying there with my sleep mask on, allowing the sun to slowly heat up my bedroom to the point where I had to kick off the covers and finally force myself to stand up and make coffee. Thank goodness it’s Friday ya’ll.
