That is annoying!
My mum's is about an hour and a half on buses but that pales in comparison to your journeys!!

I got some nice fruit and found some reduced cod fillets. And coke zero of course!!
Got some of the peach flavoured ones.

chinahorse 11-05-2018 02:35 PM

Tbf I like the fact that my journeys involve multiple forms of transport. Like bus train and taxi. Breaks it up a bit but getting in at like 10 on a Friday night won't be great.

The peach coke zero is the best!! I really like it. Have ypu tried the mango diet coke? That's awful.

Cacoethes 11-05-2018 02:42 PM

Yeah that is quite late!

I love the peach one too!
I've not tried the mango.
It doesn't really appeal to me.

chinahorse 11-05-2018 02:45 PM

Should probably book a taxi but you never know if the train will get in on time.

Oh god don't get it! The only way to describe it is odd.

Cacoethes 11-05-2018 02:50 PM

You can never tell with trains

I won't waste my money on it then!
I'm happy with normal and peach!

chinahorse 11-05-2018 02:53 PM

I don't wanna travel. :(

Why can't I just click my fingers and be somewhere else?

Cacoethes 11-05-2018 03:00 PM

I know the feeling
I often wish for a teleporter when I need to get up for college

Just realised I forgot blueberries.

chinahorse 11-05-2018 04:10 PM

Blueberry related emergencies are rare so I think it'll be ok till you next go to the shop!

How's the college work going?

I've walked the dogs and packed my little suitcase. I don't wanna go, so much effort.

Cacoethes 11-05-2018 04:20 PM

Well, you never know! :p

It's not going too well.
I hate sociology!!

It is a lot of effort Lillie :(
Will you be glad to get home though?

chinahorse 11-05-2018 05:51 PM

Lol. But hope you managed to make some progress with your work!

Erm yeah and no. It's just back to the grind of work and no fun :/

Cacoethes 11-05-2018 06:02 PM

Not much progress made :ermm:

Ah work sucks.
When do you next get a break?

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 06:12 PM


chinahorse 11-05-2018 06:22 PM

Heya :-)

Oh no beckie, can you take a break then make a renewed effort?

I have weekends off like a normal person now but yeah. I just seem to do nothing but work and sleep :/

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 06:24 PM

Will you be doing much besides sleeping this weekend? I hope you can fit in something that makes you feel good.

Cacoethes 11-05-2018 06:25 PM

Hi Lindsay
How are you?

I've eaten and showered so I don't have any more excuses!

Having weekends is good!
Are there any groups or anything you could join on weekends?

Pomegranate 11-05-2018 06:27 PM

Are you on your way home now Lillie?

What are you studying in sociology?

Pomegranate 11-05-2018 06:28 PM

Hi Lindsey

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 06:29 PM

I don't really have any advice for you Beckie but I definitely relate! How can you maybe bribe yourself or boost your confidence or something?

I'm ok. Will need to have a shower in a bit.

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 06:29 PM

Hi Emma, how are things?

Cacoethes 11-05-2018 06:30 PM

Have to do a PowerPoint on health inequalities in contemporary society.
It shouldn't be difficult but my brain is silly

Thanks Lindsay!
I really want to get it done so I can start ticking stuff off

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 06:32 PM

Do you really, really like ticking? Maybe you could make loads of very small goals that you can work through to do lots of ticking.

chinahorse 11-05-2018 06:38 PM

That's a good suggestion there beckie!

Hey Emma :)

Yeah I've been told I need to do more stuff but I'm so exhausted all I want to do is rest.

Cacoethes 11-05-2018 06:41 PM

That's a good idea Lindsay!
I shall do that

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 06:41 PM

Lillie, is there some way to improve the quality of your sleep/rest, or something you enjoy doing that doesn't take up a lot of energy?

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 06:42 PM

Beckie, make your first tick a tick for making a list!

chinahorse 11-05-2018 06:46 PM

It's a fibromyalgia related breathing takes more energy than I have sort of rest. I have some stuff to work on that came from my appointment. It's just you know. Actually doing it :/

Cacoethes 11-05-2018 06:47 PM

I think I'm going to make an actual tick chart and put it on my fridge
Which may just be further procrastination but I think it will help!

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 06:50 PM

Does the appointment stuff look like it might be helpful?

That does sound a little like further procrastination Beckie but I think we'll let you away with it!

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 06:54 PM

Someone keep my seat in this thread warm while I go and have a shower, please.

zombiehunter 11-05-2018 06:54 PM

*peeks in*

EDIT - odd timing to be peeking in :-p

Cacoethes 11-05-2018 07:08 PM

Haha! It is a bit :p

chinahorse 11-05-2018 07:09 PM

I dunno but I suppose it's worth a shot.

That is just more procrastination beckie!!

Will do lindsay.

Haha zombie.

zombiehunter 11-05-2018 07:12 PM

I hope you aren't procrastinating in public :O

Cacoethes 11-05-2018 07:13 PM

I am never going to get this **** done!

zombiehunter 11-05-2018 07:17 PM

curry helps

Cacoethes 11-05-2018 07:19 PM

I don't think it will!

not_so_insig 11-05-2018 07:39 PM

Hello all.

Serendipity. 11-05-2018 07:41 PM

Evening. How are you all?

You can do it Beckie! *\o/*

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 07:41 PM

Zombie, what's the logic behind the curry then?

Hi Dawn, how are you?

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 07:41 PM

Hi Hannah, how is your evening going?

not_so_insig 11-05-2018 07:42 PM

I am cold buy otherwise ok.

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 07:42 PM

Also Hannah, your cheerleading emoji/smiley thing also looks like a bit of a slanty lol so could send mixed messages!

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 07:43 PM

You got the heating on Dawn, or some nice warm clothes?

not_so_insig 11-05-2018 07:45 PM

I am at my parents house right now so I don't get to control the heating.

MunchBox 11-05-2018 07:45 PM

Hello everyone :)

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 07:45 PM

Ah. Are your parents not feeling the cold?

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 07:46 PM

Hi Mary, how's things?

MunchBox 11-05-2018 07:46 PM

Hi Lindsay, I'm alright, just installing Fallout 4 on the Xbox.

one_step_closer 11-05-2018 07:49 PM

Does xbox not have discs any more? I know nothing about gaming technology. How long will it take to download?

I'm ok, going to go offline and do some reading soon then watch a bit of TV.

zombiehunter 11-05-2018 07:50 PM

hi serendipitydoodah and bunchmox :-D

one step closer, a curry always helps get **** done, the spicier the better
