I scored 74% on my second last undergrad essay. I did not see that coming. Give the half-arsed nature of the assignment, I was expecting about 55%. This has made an already pretty good day a whole lot better.

I've started looking into TESOL courses I can do before I go to Japan. I'm torn between a cheap one that can I afford to pay for on my own, or a good one that I would have to sweet talk my parents into. I know they would willingly pay the difference if it made a difference, but I'm not sure it will. If I were looking to make teaching overseas my life, then hell yeah I'd do the CELTA course, but I just don't know if it is necessary for what I want to do.

I hate making decisions.

Well, that's the end of that dream, I guess. What the hell I am going to do now, well, that's anyone's guess.

You'd think after all these years, my friends would have some idea of how to cope with me when I'm devastated. Apparently, no. Apparently, they completely fail at common decency sometimes. Apparently, their idea of how to make me feel better first involved me cooking dinner for the five of us, then when I objected changing to they'll cook dinner but they will invite someone I absolutely can't stand. That does not seem to me like the best plan, but hell, what do I know? I am seriously considering just making an excuse, staying home, and watching sad movies.

This beautiful, curl-up-with-a-book, overcast weather is not helping me with my resolution to actually attend my Monday lecture this arv. All I want to do is stay in my nice warm bed and keep reading The Hobbit. Well, I'm nearly finished with The Hobbit, so probably The Lord of the Rings. Yes, the movies did inspire me to go back to the books. Oh well, I've still got an hour to psych myself into it. It could happen.

I think a pot of tea may be required, and either Vegemite toast or some of chocolate-peanut paste biccies I made the other night.

Decisions, decisions.

It's done. Oh my God it's done. They did it. They fricking did it.

Go America! Go Obama!

I am actually crying. This is ridiculous. It isn't even my election.
