#100HappyDays: Days 1-8

Happy Monday everyone!

To make this shitty day better, here is a recap of my first 8 days on the #100HappyDays challenge

Day 1: Spending time with my bestie is always the most magnificent time. Just as a side note – she makes AMA-ZING cottage pie.

Day 4: The consumer based market knows everyone way too well. They had a massive sale at one of the big retailers here in South-Africa (who isn’t getting a shout-out because their service is atrocious). Anyhoo, got these New Balance running shoes on half price and I was dancing all the way.

Day 5: Continued running and made myself some healthy and delicious dinner afterwards. So happy with my steak – I am so not a master at making it but this turned out lovely!

Day 6: The University I study with had me in a constant stressball for the last couple of months. I had to update my course code, and they had changed all their systems and what-whats. Needless to say, I was freaked out when it ran into the new year and I still hadn’t received feedback from them – you do NOT mess with a part-time student that is this close to graduating. They FINALLY got back to me this week and I was doing somersaults in the office

UNISA

Day 7: Gifts from Hermanus, Western Cape

Day 8: The heatwave has been pulsing through Gauteng like mad. We’ve been running around at 40 degrees celcius a day, and about 22 degrees at night. It has really felt like hell on earth and everyone has been miserable in this heat (and incredibly stupid on social media, but more on that later). On Friday the rain finally came pouring down from the skies and the people didn’t even moan. I had a terrible drive back from work – think roads steaming from the heat and rain contact, poring rain and a highway – and no power thanks to the thunderstorm, but it has been absolutely amazing just to cool down a bit.
