April, so far, really hasn’t been my month. Truly, it has been sucking. From insane work deadlines to people stealing my parking space (THE WORST CRIME) to my online orders not going through, this past week was not fun.
However, April is supposed to be one of the best months for South-Africa. We have Good Friday, Family day, Freedom Day AND workers day in the span of three weeks. Even if you have to work it is all about enjoying the super short weeks. I think the government realises we need this month’s laziness because since it’s the quarter of the year it means people are ready to commit murder without provocation. I certainly am. A combination of slight flu and internet problems and everything mentioned above is making me the grumpiest person to be around right now. everyone else, I am sorry.
What I achieved in the three first months of 2014
Car. Nothing beats that
I upgraded from my crapberry to what I believe was a very good choice, the Samsung S4 mini.
I GOT MY LAPTOP. It has Windows 8 on (not a happy place for me to be working on) but I love having it already. Sorting out internet hopefully by the end of the week and then I will be the happiest.
Basically, I already achieved at least 50% of what I wanted to achieve this year. The rest seems pretty doable considering I never thought that I would get three tasks done in one year.
Lover’s Rock, the pleasure resort
Was quite pleasurable without the bow-chicka-bow-wow its’ name might imply. Had the best long weekend I’ve had in ages, and I really, really didn’t want to return to work.
I can’t imagine how I ever liked Daughtry’s music. EUGH.
I won R10.50. I’M RICH!
I’ve started watching Bones and so far I am enjoying it completely. And I have serious lab envy.
Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert
Yep, still on it. On a serious reading go slow, but I am really enjoying the book so far. It is like a very excellent textbook on marriage traditions. I love the way Gilbert writes.
Divergent, the movie
Firstly, it isn’t supposed to be like the Hunger Games. It is a completely different story. It was enjoyable but not the best adaption I’ve seen.
I am fully in its clutches #Addiction
Autumn is approaching in South-Africa. It has been so blisteringly hot lately that I welcome it. It would be incorrect to say that I love summer – it is so hot and I dislike heat. Winter is very cold so I will say I’m a moderate temperature person – Autumn and Spring. I need to do some serious shopping for winter because I apparently have no clothes. Where they all disappeared to is a secret I will never know.
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
Indiana Jones and the Lost Ark was better for me, but Temple of Doom still had the wow factor although Winnie was the most incredibly annoying heroine possibly ever created.
I think raising awareness about cancer is amazing and important, but I also think that actually doing something so support research is much more important. I honestly think that this craze is just about getting more attention than anything else. And really, I don’t deserve to see your makeup less face when I go on Facebook before my first cup of coffee. I have done nothing bad enough to my life to be so frightened.
I used to haunt news sites, desperate for information about what was going on in the world. Now, I just don’t go on. When did the world become so horrible and full of despair? Ugandans are getting slaughtered in churches, the Ukraine vs. Russia vs. the United States is still going on, Oscar Pistorius is still in his court battle and the petrol price is still going up. So pardon me for steering clear from such depression. I hate that there is a craze about something and after a few months the world forgets while the citizens of a ravaged country has to struggle on.
I really don’t want to say this too quickly, but it would seem I have a moderate control over my taste buds again. I am working hard at eating things that are good for my body, and exercising at least three times a week. It is an ongoing thing this healthy lifestyle, with ups and downs and irritations that wants you to swallow a box of chocolates with a glass of Coke, but I guess the thing is to never give up.
The Bane(s) of my existence
The eternally “sick”. There are people in the world that copes better with cancer and Aids than somepeople do with a bit of flu.
People who are incapable of closing a door and leaves it to slam close.
People who don’t know how a door buzzer works.
People who are rude and have no social etiquette.
People who don’t understand sarcasm.
People who are incapable of seeing the viewpoints of others.
People who think they are the best in everything.
And the worst?People who manages to be all of the above
Oh, and slow internet. Luckily annoying people can’t be slow internet, because then I would be wearing an orange jumpsuit by now.
And people who stink. MEH
Links I loved the last few weeks:

OI! AND my birthday! 😉 April is a fantastic time of year, and the weather is getting all lovely again and what not!
You are on such an achievement roll, I love it best one!
With you, there is a good reason that I skip out on news nowadays… way too negative.
Seeing you soon Whoop!!! That is making this so far horrid month better!
Thank you thank you!
The news just makes me mad or sad. Not worth it.
Damn straight! So exciting!
I used to read it a lot (I blame the fact that I took History), but eventually I was just getting too upset or angry or whatever, so rather skip it. Much better that way.
