In lieu of being able to do anything about this now My dear, I was trying to phrase that to make it clear I wasn't asking you for anything, just being generally whiny. I mean, you can no more turn me into a cat than pseudomonas can slay geography for me. So I'm really touched that you're treating my silly petulant suggestion as an actual possibility. Thank you.
Geography is thoroughly unpleasant and I am plotting nasty ways to do away with it. Yay. I like you. *attempt at smile*
Are you going to doseybat's party? (I suppose part of my problem is that I need to figure out whether I'm going to the party and if so how. And this is proving a tricky problem, which is making me inclined to hide in the corner and not think about stuff.)
I know how you feel. I don't know what works for you - but it really helps me to take half an hour and listen to or watch some really good comedy. One good laugh suddenly makes me feel a whole lot better and able to face the world again. Of course, with your laugh, you'd probably also make your neighbours feel better too! :)
Thank you for the hugs and tea, that's much appreciated.
And my increased hatred of geography is due to the fact that there are two things I really want to do in SE England, and they're on consecutive weekends. So doing both would mean spending the best part of four whole days travelling in a ten-day period, which I can't really afford to do either financially or timewise. And I really don't want to miss out on either!
And then part of the reason I want to do these things is that they would involve seeing pseudomonas, doseybat, compilerbitch, lethargic_man, possibly Screwy if I play it right, and my parents. All of whom are people I want to see, and I'm finding it really hard to make any kind of travel plans right now because every time someone mentions a date a few weeks in advance, I'm like, but what if I'm in a thesis crisis at that point? Argh, can't make any commitments! I've kind of been like this since the summer, which absolutely sucks, and thinking about being in this annoying can't-arrange-to-see-any-of-my-friends limbo reminds me that I was supposed to have finished my thesis by now and I haven't nearly, and therefore I'm crap.
That's without thinking about those of my friends who are so far away that I can't see them even if I were prepared to be unrealistic about travel arrangements. But I suppose those people are just contributing to my general hatred of geography, and can't be counted as excuses for hating it more than usual at the moment.
