Today, I woke up to the following mail from the faculty’s administrative office:
I am happy to confirm your presence at the graduation ceremony June 8th. Further information will be sent to you some time after April 30th.”
After reading this, I was rolling around in our huge and comfy bed (yup, that’s right, it’s huge and comfy!) in joy. I think I kind of lost it after that, because for the rest of the day I couldn’t think straight. I tried to do some simple math for the flies, and it took me ages to get it right. Then, I got a few mails from my supervisors that I read over and over again, before finally getting the message. It’s not like I’m lacking sleep, I did sleep 12 hours straight last night. Even my dad pointed out that I looked well-rested today. I listen closely to my parents when they tell me something about my health. Sometimes they’re so good at it, they’d catch something wrong with me before I myself notice it. Either they’re good, or it’s just written on my forehead (I’m gonna believe that they’re just good at it). But I do think I am mentally exhausted. It’s been a lot on my mental plate lately, a lot more than I can write about here. Let’s say people confide in me, that’s all.
It’s not that I don’t like listening, sometimes listening to someone is all I can do for them at that moment – so I listen. And I have become picky as to who I choose to listen to.
Anyway, I think I just need to relax. I’ve finally started catching up to The Mentalist. Oh my, have I forgotten the Aussie gorgeousness that is Simon Baker. Turns out, me watching that show does a great deal of healing for my mind. Since there’s a lot of mind games and puzzles in it, I automatically try to analyze everything in each episode. Because it is not something directly related to my studies, I see it as a hobby-thing, kind of like my writing here.
So, instead of just grinding through the many articles I have to read for my thesis tonight, I will just finish up on an exam and then continue to watch that show. That show is what Matlock was to me when I was younger. Brilliant!
//c_Cae; just gotta finish an assignment before I start watching another episode
