Prepare for a rant... I'd complain to someone else, but my friends are either away for work or have gone out, even the ones that seem to spend their life on msn usually!! Sorry.

I had a really really bad night, lots of nightmares etc, woke up at 6 and couldn't get back to sleep until it was time to get up. Then came home and got annoyed about my flatmate (for lots of small stuff that just keeps adding up, nothing that's actually worth mentioning or even getting angry about, but you know when you have a really bad day you sometimes can't help it?)

Then phoned my parents; they were supposed to come and visit me on Easter (I moved over to the UK nearly a year before, and have been home 3 times since cause they keep saying they miss me, but it is starting to get a bit expensive and I have more stuff to do here now, so I said they should come and visit me, see how I live etc). They couldn't come visit before, cause there are some family problems that make it hard for them to go away for very long, however they did go on walking-trips lasting a few days (which is all I'm really asking for) three times last year. Then it was "can't come on Easter, will come 2 weeks later", and now they can't come there because my mum has to sell stuff at the church flea market (!). So I hung up on her telling her to stay at home and not bother redface

I'm feeling crap about that now, but I'm really so angry, and I was in a bad mood already frown I know I've over-reacted, and all this is really ridiculous and I shouldn't waste your time with it frown Bah. Any recommendations or opinions? (or a hug or two?)

sometimes when things are all dodgy, it's satisfying to have a good old fashioned sulk. so i suggest you stomp around the house and slam doors.

As for hanging up on your mum, I think you should take some time to calm down (go have a hot bath or something nice) then maybe tomorrow call her back, apologise and explain that amongst other things going on in your day, you are upset that they aren't visiting you.

Real hugs when I see you

Thanks guys... everything's fine again on the family front, called them right after posting here (I'm VERY quick at getting angry AND calming down, luckily). My dad kind of said he understood, and they are going to visit after all. I wonder if that counts as emotional blackmail on my part...?

Oh, and had the hot bath as well biggrin

It's really good the flatmate's out tonight, or she would find me even weirder now than she already does for playing with fire and planning to run around on a hill in bodypaint and a loincloth wink

So JUST when I thought everything was fine I got a letter from uni computing saying my email account would be cancelled in the next 2 months because I'm more than 2 months after the end of my course (which has started last April and goes on until 2007!!!!!). So now I'm slightly worried; it's not the first time uni would get stuff about my course, my fees, my name or my address wrong, and I really hope I've not been silently ex-matriculated! We'll have to find out on Monday though. Maybe it's just some weirdos hacking the system and sending everyone emails to scare them wink



EDIT: Before I forget it, here is the description of my dream job:

The tiny little guys in hell who spend all day on a table eating finger food, drinking dark red wine and deciding how to make people's lives more difficult. I might be good at that, and I'd like to see it from the other side for a change ubbloco I could even be an anti-PA!

hug yeah, I know what you mean about the uni.. I was forced to go into an advanced japanese course when i didn't even have the skills for it. Somehow got through a year of it, now they won't let me change courses!

Things seem to be okay now with your parents. Parents can be strange creatures sometimes. ubbloco

Glad to hear everything is better again. Sometimes things just kinda go nuts and whatnot and you shut-down for a little bit, it healthy. Just relax and let yourself be sad for a little bit, then go out and have a good time and come home feeling all peachy-keen again.

::huggles:: love love ^_^

Don't mind me, just passing through.

Thanks for all the hugs biggrin biggrin

On the subject of computing services emails, my flatmate and one of the technicians got one, too, and apparently everyone in their lab agrees that the bit on the end saying "we hope you enjoyed your time in Edinburgh and wish you well for the future" means that it's not really from anyone at computing wink (though personally I like the computing guys, they've been quite helpful in our lab)
