Hey its ok - Vol #2

I almost published this post without an introduction ha!

I've done a post like this before, it's patterned after a regular series in Glamour magazine called 'Hey its ok'. Again, the concept ain't mine! I have always loved that series (just like the confessions in Cosmo) and so here I am today with another one. Clearly I love spilling my dirty laundry all over the blog ... Sorry mum.

... to admit that you're too busy to blog as much as you would like to sometimes. Many of you may not even know this because I don't blog about it very often but I tutor at a University, am a full time lawyer, I'm currently in the second (and final year) of my masters programme, I'm writing a book ... and I'm taking a month off all these to travel half fully across the world to see my wonderful seeester and my nephew, niece and bro-in-law. I had a lot of stuff to get done before I leave. And that's ok, Ill have loads of time while on vacay to write and read all the blogs!

... to be completely annoyed by the slew of emails that your tertiary level students send you asking you the stupidest things ... "Miss R. am I supposed to type the assignment before I submit it" ... No, type it after you submit ... Better yet write the entire bloody thing on a stone and then stand in front of a mirror and throw that stone at yourself for asking silly bloody questions ... wtf do you think? wtf does that question even mean????? 

... to be writing a blog post when you have maybe one hour left to finish up that file that has been dragging you and your mood down for over a week. Procrastination. It's my middle name.

... to realize that the boy that you hang around, well you really don't want to leave him for an entire month. Even though you all are just great friends, and you really should not get with him, and probably wont (long story), you will miss him the most (well apart from my daddy. And yes mum that boy ... live with it).

... to spill secrets like that on the blog even though your mum and sister reads it and man will the questions come ... my phone will be ringing in 3... 2...1....

... to get a new camera you didn't originally plan on purchasing and then snap pictures of every single thing in sight! This weekend I took pictures of my mums plants, my dog (who lives with my parents), my car, the bed, the apartment ... basically if it was in my eyesight, there is a picture of it. 

... to go out for drinks with your bestie and your new young hot gynaecologist. haha ok maybe that's not ok, but it sure is fun and not awkward at all ... 

... to watch YouTube videos of MacBooks for over an hour, because you cant wait to run into the apple store as soon as you touch down in the US to get yourself one ... and an Iphone 6.

... To relish in the fact that on Friday night you will take the red eye flight to NYC and then straight to Boston for a couple days and in no time you will be in Australia cuddling your niece and nephew and life will be perfect. I might even watch Frozen, finally! 

Ill leave you guys with this quote I saw on Emily's blog ... I love it!!

Happy Tuesday-ing!!

    1. I still love yah .... Tell mummy just don't read today ... I don't need a lecture ..............

  2. You do have a lot on your plate but yeah for vacation! Now, about this boy........ ;)

  3. You guys can't get Macs and iPhones shipped to you? Lame. I'm drinking the Apple koolaid though. I want a surface pro. Friday will be here before you know it.

  4. yeah you need to tell us more about that boy i daresay. you're gonna have the best time on your travels, i am so jealous! and seriously, do we have to type it before we submit it? WTF?

  5. Ooo, a boy?? ;)

    We were the same way when we got our camera, we were taking pictures of everything, dogs, trees, grass...

    Oh I love my MacBook! I'm totally a Mac person now, even though I have to use a PC at work. :/

  6. I love when you post these, but tell me why I read that quote and kept wondering why they didn't post number 2... Finally got it. lol

  7. Hmm.. maybe this month apart for you and the mystery man will lead to some long-lost feelings coming out ;) Can't wait to see the kind of pics you're getting with your new camera! You're #1 when it comes to doing it all - work, teaching, blog - whew! Hero status!

  8. I love taking pics of every effing thing.

    LOLOL @ your mom and your sister burning up the phone lines to get to you about that man.

  9. this is my favorite series!! I just almost spit out my drink at you getting a drink with the hot OBGYN. Love it. Macs are the best, I'm excited for you to get one and SO excited for you to see your sis and babies!

  10. You are too funny! I would be taking pics of everything in sight too if I got a new camera. You have to practice and be ready to snap on the trip....Ohh.... I'm not sure how I would feel about my mom reading my blog ;-)

  11. No more iPhone pics? Nice! I love how you left messages for your mom throughout the post :)

  12. LOL at your mom and sister calling you about your man friend! Hehe! Oh and drinks with your gyno? Nice! Haha!

    Also, I want an iPhone 6 so hard! My phone storage is full and it keeps messing up and it makes me angry!

  13. Oh my gosh girl you wear a lot of hats - you have a much deserved vacation coming up!! As for the iPhone 6 mine is shipping out this week and I can't wait either!

  14. I just got my iphone5. Which, I absolutely love. So, I'll have to wait on getting the new one. I would be taking pictures like crazy haha. Your going to have so much fun! now I want to know more about this guy haha.

  15. LOL at your students. Don't you sometimes just want to respond, "Why don't you think about what you just asked for five seconds?!"

  16. Hahaha, write it on a stone and throw it, I love that. And I'm so glad you finally get a break soon! You deserve it so much. Aaaaand I want to see some of these pictures. AAAAND you'll be here in the U.S. so soon and then I'll be seeing your face in real life! Woooo! Also I love this post style and am totally going to borrow your brilliance one of these days soon. :) xoxo

  17. #1 was me last week! Between full-time lawyering, baby, blogging, and finishing my MBA, things get outta control sometimes. Hope you have a wonderful, safe trip!

  18. Ummmmmmm don't even get me started on the ridiculous emails from the students "can I get an extension on the quiz???" noooooo you can't you've had the syllabus since day one. I get so infuriated with them. Side note let's hear about this camera!!

  19. hahahaah that would be weird - going out for drink with my gyno who stares at my snatch at every visit. it's why mine is female. my sister has a super hot gyno and she says that every time she has an appt with him, she has to get her situation down there handled because there aint' no way she's going over there looking like buckwheat is between her legs HAHAHAHAHAHA


I read all my comments. Drop me a line! I would love to hear from you! :)
