Weekends, books and stuff

Hello 🙂

On Friday night we visited a pub named Gilroy’s. Initially I had misgivings, since I was told I had to drink a beer there (I mean, yuck) but said I would at least try it. I am so glad I did! Gilroy’s is in Johannesburg, on the way to Muldersdrift – even though the road was scary – it was very wet – we arrived safely and settled down. I was immediately impressed with the place. The atmosphere was amazing, and our waiter couldn’t be friendlier. And get this – their handmade beer is actually rather tasty! I would recommend a visit if you are in the vicinity! See their website here.

I finally finished Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It is the most emotionally draining book of the series, and I was thoroughly depressed by the end of it. I have always viewed it as my least favourite book in the series, to the dismay of my friend, but I will now say it is a wonderful book (like I always have), but it still remains the saddest one in the series. I realised I need to start reading to complete my book challenge, but as I am focusing on the studies, I will continue with that in earnest in June again.

On the studying front, I managed to make progress with my Statistics. I did a mental happy dance when I managed to answer questions of the work I studied! Go me go!

Dieting: I didn’t eat as well as I did during the week, but comparing to the way I ate on other weekends recently, I ate like a champ. Weighing later this morning and will post results tomorrow… if I lost that is! 🙂


What did you do this weekend?

Tuesday Thoughts

Probability and Statistics:  What is the probability of me thinking of throwing my Statistics book out of the window and not doing it or the probability of thinking of throwing my Statistics book out of the window and actually doing it? I am fighting with Statistics each evening now to finish an assignment for Friday. It makes no sense. Everybody tries to explain it by telling me about a dice falling to one side (or something) but really, that makes no sense either.

Feeling age creep up. I am only 23, but I feel so old these days. Everyone near my age group is pregnant, engaged, married or wildly successful. That means 23 isn’t that young right?! I need to start checking for wrinkles and grey hair. Sigh.

Reading Nora Roberts again and I am loving this book a whole lot. The best feeling in the world is when a book grips you and won’t let go.

I am moving over to a Samsung phone when I upgrade. I am completely over my BlackBerry 😐

I want to go watch The Wizard of Oz this weekend. It looks to be very entertaining.

I love quotes and quirky statements on a pretty background. They are motivating, true and make me laugh out loud. Which is awesome.
