I stayed low for some time because there is nothing to say. On Friday evening – Saturday morning S. arrived. I was pissed at Brisbane public transport because there is no connection with the airport after 8 pm. The only ways to get there are either by bus shuttle – which you have to book 3-4 days in advance – or by cab, having to pay at least 40$. Madness I tell you! From public transport point of view, Brisbane sucks! They go on assuming you have a car… Grrrr!
Well…but I was rewarded with a smile after all this trouble. ๐Ÿ™‚
Then..Saturday..party at a fellow PhD student.
Sunday…walking through 35ยฐC and lots of people in the city center. I actually discovered a very good ice-cream from Hungry Jack’s (Australian Burger King): is glazed in chocolate. Yummy!
Today was disappointment time when checking work results. Bleah!
What is funny is that I got to count the Christmas parties. There are no more than 4 we are going to go to. And, of course, all of them not Christmasy like, but with barbecue and beer by the lake or pool. Yabba dabba doo!

I gotta say..I do miss snow and cold, but I know I know..one always wishes for what they don’t have that is why I bought myself a new swimming suit. ๐Ÿ˜€

It was Friday, what a black day!

Uffa!

Yeah, I don’t have any cool pictures, my day was…&%$^&!!!
I guess not everything can always be all lollipops and candies. The entire week I’ve been trying to wrap my head around all sorts of equations and..well..it turned out that I couldn’t get some things figured out. Bleah! It’s one of those times when the curiousity which made me start this PhD feels a bit outdated, insufficient, stupid, childish, etc. But oh well! In the spirit of momentum conservation I will keep on trying.

The cool uncool thing about today was that after I woke up I tried to kill some time waiting for a certain phone call. After the phone call, which was for me not as cheery as other times…I got dressed and prepared for the office. On the way out of the house I discovered that my iPOD did some funny stuff messing up some of the songs I had copied on it. “Oh well..a small inconvenience!” – I naively thought to myself. Then, just ouside the house, in the street, getting the first bite of a grape … I choked. The kind of choke you need someone to pat you on the back. Guess what? In the suburb where I live there are no other people!!! Together with Shannon, we are the only ones!ย ๐Ÿ™‚ Seriously, there was no one on the street so I caughed and caughed for a few minutes. Luckily I didn’t miss the bus!
I safely came to the uni and was happy to taste my latte for today (I cannot not think about Carry Brashaw when I am ordering latte). So I took out the money (2 coins of 50 cents and 1 coin of 2 dollars) and guess what now? I dropped the 2 dollar coin in a drain hole. Pointless to say it was impossible to get it out. “Oh well”…AGAIN!
Theeeen I finnally got to the office. But just on the corridor I saw the guy who sits on my right in the room heading towards me. He was also looking at me so I was just preparing to say “Hello” – because I am a well behaved person, or at least I like to believe that. But, what do you know? Exactly when he was like 1m away, his eyes preferred to shift to the floor. I was a bit annoyed by that and so..hadn’t it been for my weird morning I would’ve just let it go. Buuuuuuut..I didn’t. I came very close to him and shouted in his ear “Hiiii!” Not shouted that everyone could hear me, but just enough for him to thinkย I am a psychopath. And exactly in this instant, he is quietly sitting 1m away from me, trying to learn Python. Everybody say “Hello Jasoooooooon!” and wave!

The thing is that we know eachother, I mean..I even helped him to print some stuff. Apparently it’s not such a strong bond these days anymore…:)

I think I will skip this Friday’s beers and just crawl in my bed and ask for my mommy who is 300000000000000km away. ๐Ÿ™‚
