To break down the last eight days in Bridget Jones speak:
Pints of Guinness drank – 8, but more likely 9
Cheesy breakfast burritos eaten while gabbing about politics and religion – 1
Glasses of lovely Australian Shiraz – 3
Hours spent analyzing and formatting data into spectacular colourful presentation slides – 30
Pieces of chocolate birthday cake consumed – 1
Nights spent socializing instead of studying – 3
On scale of one to ten stress level over pending exam this coming week – 12
Books read for pleasure – 0.5
Pounds regained – 5!!!
In the good news category, I have little time to do much else but study these next few days, so the chances of my doing more damage to project pudge are low. And, if the truth be told, despite stressing over my exam and working my ass off to wow my client at work I had a wonderfully entertaining few nights out and enjoyed celebrating my niece Maeve’s birthday.
So book reviews and posts may be a bit sparse this next week, but come Thursday we’ll be back to our prolific selves. All things in balance is I guess the best way to look at this past week. For, in the end, all I can do is persevere. Despite this setback, life is afterall pretty damn good.
