20Something and Surviving

In Recovery

So I’ve been recovering for the past few weeks. What had started out with the flu developed into a throat infection then a case of acute tonsillitis and I thought it was over. Apparently not because last week I got rebound flu and got to have a few days off which was cut short by my need to work.

I’m not particularly enjoying work a t the moment but I guess my mom must have done something right because I really hate having to sit at home doing nothing all day when I have so many deadlines. Plus the whole popcorn and DVD thing under a duvet becomes a bit boring after a while.

So this saw me venture out to work for two of my three sick days. Granted it was just half days but they truly helped me to cut down the workload. Coz no one is going to do your work for you or should I say their own work that they “delegated” (hate that freaking word) to you.

Luckily I recovered by Friday evening, just barely, and just in time to drive down to Port Shepstone to attend yet another funeral on Saturday. The weekend was okay. Played third wheel to C and her hubby to be but I still had a great time. Was a tad depressing though coz it made me realize how long it’s actually been…

I told myself that I’m over the whole “wanting a companion/ soul mate” thing but I maybe not. Anyway I’m in no rush. Still recovering form my last mistake.

My life is really boring at the moment and I like it that way. At lunch with G yesterday we had this whole discussion around our various drama and how it’s about time we move on and do something proactive about it. So in order to move on we first have to look back at the past and see how far we’ve come and I have sure come a long way.

Tomorrow I will post my story. Hopefully I can fit it all in one post.

Graduation, Spray On Condoms, and Tom Cruise Killing Oprah

Just wanted to get some attention. *grin* Anyway…
So, I’ve done it and all I can say is wow!!! Finally graduated.
All is left is one more time next year, hopefully, coz by 2010 I cannot be going through this shit again.
Anyway, everything went off as planned. Did not trip and planning on a holiday with prezzie cash. Mommy was well behaved and we managed to sit through a celebratory meal for the family’s sake. All I know is come tonight I’m going to get as wasted as possible.
Had to go to work today as deadlines loom. I used to love the thrill of deadlines but now they’re just an inconvenience.

As of Monday I have decided to publish a new blog based on the silly emails I receive daily. This is just an excuse to feel as if I have posted something even when I hit a slump or just become plain lazy.

I had decided to start blogging after conducting research concerning social websites and the media and its impact on society amongst other things for my research thesis. The best way in order to criticize anything is to experience it first hand so I added blogging to my long list of social media escapades that included Facebook, Myspace and YouTube. I find blogging to be cathartic so I just decided to carry on after submitting my findings. Now I am obsessed with having my shit read.

I did a Google search to find out what was the most searched words on Google and surprisingly it turned out to be triffids and spray on condoms. I know!!!!! Others included Mario Lopez, truthiness (!), and thong lawsuit, defenestrate and tom cruise kills oprah.

Obviously there are some messed up people out there. So in order to have my blog come up in an online search I should not bother with the mention of sex, porn or anything free as is the misconception but rather scribble something that includes Tom Cruise strangling Oprah on her couch because she recommended a defective thong as opposed to spray on condoms as a contraceptive method.

Could Work.

Incidentally I followed the link to the spray on condoms and it received a mention on CSI so it became super popular. Google it.
