Murphy's Law– anything that can go wrong….HAS gone wrong!
Guess what? I've been robbed twice in two days. Yesterday was wallet, debenhams card and debit card and all other cards in the library. Today it was my credit card and £20 from coat pocket in learning grid. How unlucky can one person get? I mean….what are the chances of being robbed TWICE in TWO days? I live in africa and I've only been robbed about 5 times in my entire LIFE!!!
I am currently in the Learning Grid typing out my bloody essays. I am about to fall asleep. Due to excessive boredom, I've eaten about 1kg of grapes, 2 mandarins, a plum, 2 cheese strings, a large chocolate tart, almost half a litre of strawberries and cream yogurt, tons of orange juice, chinese takeaway and am contemplating starting on the strawberry laces. The thing is…i'm not even hungry!
I'm just eating cos the damn stuff is there! this is so bad! I feel so queasy!i could survive a week on the calories i've consumed in the last 5 hours or so. ugh! feel really green! I think i better stop eating now!
Have also been eating excessive amounts of muller corner yogurt and baby bel over the last week. I started off buying a couple at a time but have now upgraded to multi-packs. MULTI PACKS!!!!Thank god I only have to do this once a term! the quantities of sugar required to keep me going are too high to do anything other than make me fat if i were to attempt this on a long term basis!
To digress, Sigmund and i have decided that spending too much time in the Lib/learning grid actually makes you dummer and we've both become slower and duller as a result! This is because our minds are so saturated with Futures and debt relief that there is no RAM left to process anything else with. Basically, what happened to your computer the first week after discovering DC++ took only 5 mins to download entire movies onto your laptop and couldn't stop downloading! Sooner or later the hard disk will fill up and you will have to erase something.
Lol! Can you imagine publishing that as an essay? "How going to the library can make you stupid" by Muhaimina Said and Sigmund Euteneuer.
It has been observed in the case of muhaimina and sigmund, that spending excessive amounts of time in the library will not, as previously thought, make one smarter. As this essay seeks to prove, there are diminishing marginal returns in the case of hours spent in the library:intelligence. After peaking at 5 hours a day (two hours in the case of Mina), the latter continues to decrease until you reach the point where the more you attempt to learn, the more you manage to forget.
At least all my essays are due tomorrow (all THREE of them) so at 3:45pm, I will be back in my room and fast asleep!
On that happy note…my essays beckon…must fly.
