Work Stunted

Posted in about the blog, Me, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on 31/05/2011 by arabrhizome

So I have been unable to work today for some reason. I kept staring at my laptop and not working. I’m feeling quite sluggish and tired. I had a bit of a strange night. I couldn’t sleep properly. So I find myself now having to make a decision. Do I try to sleep or do I keep trying to work? The problem is that I’m sure I will not be sleepy anymore the moment I try to sleep. Also, if I keep trying to work and not produce anything, I’ll just feel bad about myself, and we don’t want that. In any case, I need to go to the dishes before I decide one way or the other. It is very nice being in a clean and uncluttered flat though. So good bye readers. Stay safe.


Busy Bee

Hey everyone. Again I’m sorry but I’m very very busy. I spent today cleaning my flat. It’s almost done. I did take many breaks because I hate cleaning, so it took all day rather than the couple of hours of intense and sustained labour it actually required. Anyway, I’m not here to judge, I know most of you will judge me and I don’t care. I am better than you (I’m not this is just me trying to sound like I don’t care but I do… Please love me). So having spent the day doing that I am now trying to get some work done. I am therefore only passing through. Although, I’d like to recommend “Horrible Histories” to everyone. It’s a fantastic children’s show, but everyone can enjoy it. It’s clever and funny and you come out of each episode having learned a bunch of stuff. I really like it a lot. Anyway, back to work. I’ll see you tomorrow. Stay safe. Love you bye.

Good News

I was not looking forward to my supervision tomorrow as I’m still not done with this particular chapter. But I got a break as tomorrow is a bank holiday. My supervisor just emailed me to reschedule. This way I get an extra couple of days in order to write more and get to an almost finished product. I’m very happy about that. In other news, my mom got her visa and she’s coming to visit this summer. It’s both a blessing and a curse because it means that I will get to see her, which is nice, but also it means that I’m probably not going to be able to work as much as I’d like while she’s here. Anyway, I should really get back to work. Stay safe and I’ll see you tomorrow. Love you bye.

Just Passing Through

Hey I’m afraid that again I’m just passing through. I’m trying to finish as much as I can by tomorrow so I can send something decent to my supervisor. Anyway, I spent most of the day trying to work. I only stopped to watch the new Doctor Who and it’s a very very good episode. The episode as a whole is great but the implications of it are what’s great. It makes me look forward to next week’s mid series finally. As you know Doctor Who this year will stop for the summer and then start again in September. I kind of wish it didn’t but I remember reading somewhere that Torchwood might be coming back, so that’s something. Anyway, that’s it from me. I’ll see you all tomorrow. Stay safe. Love you bye.

Hey I’m sorry but all this being ill business has meant that I didn’t do much work in the past few days. I’m trying to catch up now and so will not be writing a long post today. My laptop is having issues and I’d like to get as much as I can done. I don’t know how long it has before dying. I’m hoping that it doesn’t die this weekend. Anyway, I’ll try to finish as much work as I can before I write a proper post again. I might do that tomorrow, if I get much work done. Stay safe. Bye.

Not Ready Yet

I’m very sorry but I’m still not completely ready to write a proper post. I was starting to feel better but I’m now feeling a little worse. I went and did some shopping today because I had no food left at home. I think that might have been a mistake. Also, I have to say that it seems to me that a weekly shop has become a lot more expensive than it used to be even a couple of months ago. I blame Clegg and Cameron obviously. I was actually surprised by how expensive it all was. I mean It was a small shop but it cost what a full shop with expensive stuff would have cost a few months back. I’m not that knowledgeable about economics (alright I don’t know anything about it) but I think that’s a bad sign. Anyway, that’s it from me for today. I’ll see you tomorrow. Bye.

A Normal Post Tomorrow

Posted in about the blog, Me, Uncategorized with tags , , , on 25/05/2011 by arabrhizome

So I’m still very ill. Hopefully, I’ll be able to write a post tomorrow. I have some things to write about. Today Nasrallah spoke on the anniversary of the liberation of most of the south of Lebanon. He made some good points but he also made what I would argue is the biggest mistake of his tenure as Hizballah leader. His position on the revolution in Syria while not surprising was very shameful. However, I am still ill as I said and I cannot concentrate hard enough to write about it intelligently. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to write a proper post on it tomorrow. In the mean time, don’t hate me and stay safe. Love you bye.
