So I’m up again at 5:30 am, though I couldn’t really sleep till 2…this habit of only being able to have a decent sleep once in two days is creeping up to me. Maybe I should just give up on the whole idea, because now I feel like trying to sleep and not being able to is just adding to the stress. Austvina tells me it’s the summer…maybe it is, but understanding the cause of it isn’t making the situation any better for me at the moment. Plus, the temperature hasn’t even reached 30 degrees (Celsius) yet. Guess I’m going to pretend like I’m not hating this at all.
Oh, so, today is finally the day for Mum and Hikaru to leave Sydney (so yesterday was not the last day yet). The day creeping up on me was sort of worse than it’s actual arrival, and I’m not really feeling too dramatic about it anymore. It’s funny how things somehow fall into place in the end, and nothing is truly as bad as it seems in the beginning. I’ll see them again in summer (I mean, the Australian winter) again anyway! For now, I’ll just go back to the single girl life (no more help from brother for heavy lifting & DIY home improvements & grocery shopping = say hello again to chronic shoulder ache…gosh).
< This Billy bookcase from Ikea would have never happened if it weren’t for the bro…couldn’t even carry it up to my apartment myself! >
On a different note, this is something that happened yesterday when I was out with Mum and Hikaru the bro, I stopped at the ATM machine…and when I tried to use it, my card wouldn’t go in. And this other person’s card came out. Obviously, I took it into the bank to return it immediately, but some of my friends (rather, acquaintances?) that I was talking about the event to later yesterday commented that they would have “tried to take advantage” (their exact words) of the situation. Now, I’m not that naive a person; I know that this world is not a perfect rosy place where everybody loves each other, but it was really sad to hear this. I just hope that these friends of mine do not represent the majority of the population. Really, do these people really want to put an innocent person in trouble, take what does not belong to them and feel terribly guilty, just to get a few extra wads of cash? And I’m not even that righteous a person. I honestly don’t like judging people, but I just couldn’t help myself in this case. Or am I the one that’s wierd? I hope not.
