What do I do now?

I feel very lost right now, as my exams are over and I don't need to start studying just yet for the other courses. After spending yesterday on sofa eating pizza after a night out (but I didn't even cause any disapproval!), I have so much energy now. Today I've already done the laundry, tidied my room, changed the order a bit, went through my wardrobe and took pictures of the clothes I'll be selling on ebay the next time they have insertion fees for free, returned my work contract to the university (!) and finished watching the first season of Breaking Bad. I also made amazing sweet potato soup! But now I'm starting to feel anxious because I feel like there would be more to do. It's weird to do all the things you do for procrastination and then when you're allowed to do those things you don't feel like it anymore (I have no idea if that sentence made any sense).

Anyway, to even better news, I'm going to be a teaching assistant at the university next semester! Though it's for a course that I haven't taken, so that will be interesting and this time persistence really paid off. But I'm very excited for starting! I'm going to power-trip so much on that class! I hope the students will be nice to me though, luckily they'll be more afraid of me than I'll be of them. I also might have to tidy up my language here... Though this might mean that I have to officially quit in the bar where I've been working (on and off) for over two years, but I guess I can't be working there forever.

My February will be busy enough anyway, but I'm quite excited for the next semester, especially now that the horrible Business Strategy course is over. I might go read a book now that I can, just for fun. And one of favourite tunes of the moment:

Time may change me but I can't change time.

I haven't been too inspired to write this blog recently (as some of you might have noticed), so I think there will be some changes happening soon. I will keep writing but might find a new point of view as this is also my primary personal diary. I'll see what I'll come up with this after the exams.

I can't be bothered covering too much of the previous month, let's just say that if I had to describe it with song title, it'd be "It's Only Rock'n'Roll, But I Like It". However, since New Years tend to be the new beginnings of everything (no, I didn't make any resolutions), I have gotten rid of most of the issues bringing me down in life and I can say that already last autumn was probably the easiest one I've had in Aberdeen, without any seasonal depression! I've had a very good start with my Master's course and will intend to continue with that.

To make this maybe the most positive blog entry I've ever written (at least after the baby leopard one), I have to say that I've had an amazing beginning of the year! I got back to Aberdeen on 3rd and were already back to work on 4th. On Monday I then found out that I won one of the staff incentives for December and get a very generous Icebreaker-treat! I had just thought about ordering their base layer, but luckily I didn't as I get it for free now! I was over the moon for the rest of the on Monday when I found about it and I still can't believe that I won it! 

Also, my revision for the exams is on very good condition and I still have plenty of time before my first one. Though I should be reading now as well but somehow after spending over 5 hours in the library I just can't get around to reading more about the Chairman Mao's thoughts about the revolutionary war.

Today, my amazing boyfriend surprised me as the postman brought couple of big parcels addressed for me and for my greatest surprise on top of a huge Moomin-notebook and a 1kg chocolate bar there was a Suunto M5-watch! I had been drooling over Suunto watches for a while already but because of being a poor student I hadn't even dreamt of ever getting one. And now I do! I can't wait to go for a run later today and see what this amazing little tool can do!

I won't promise I'll be writing soon but I hope I'll get back to more regular pace within a month and hopefully know  by then what to do with this blog :)
Okay, one picture from Christmas.
