Eska 18-03-2018 05:46 PM

Aubergine that sounds like a busy week to me! Annoying about the driving license though.

Beckie I hope you have a good week in college :) Is it going a busy one?

Aubergine 18-03-2018 05:49 PM

You'll have to give me tips, Eska! I'm glad I'm not the only one not great with films. Most of the time I have music playing over the top of TV programmes even, whilst I am also messing about on the internet. I cannot just do one thing at a time!

Aww, your Nanny is great! :) I hope college is OK tomorrow. <3

Thanks. :) Yeah, I hope so. :)

Busy, but manageable I think. As long as I have lots of alone time in between seeing people, it'll be OK. People are what do my head in. :P

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 05:52 PM

Thanks guys :)
It probably will be busy
College ends in June and we've got so much to do!!
The emails have been sent out about graduation day.
I don't think I'm going to pass the course though
So that will be embarassing

Same here Aubergine!
I need my alone time

Hows your week looking eska?

Aubergine 18-03-2018 05:56 PM

You can catch up, with some help from your tutors. <3 You're a clever cookie, just struggling a lot right now. It's horrible when studying is so difficult and there's so much pressure, but it's OK to ask for some assistance with catching up - perhaps that's all you need, and you can graduate with everyone else. :)

Eska 18-03-2018 06:00 PM

Does the music not clash with the music thatís on whatever youíre watching? Iím not sure I would be able to cope with that!

I know what you mean about people being exhausting, definitely, although with the mood Iím in at the moment I mostly do want to be around people.

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 06:01 PM

Thank you <3

My tutors keep offering help but I (stupidly) say everything is fine because I am embarrassed
I'm going to try and talk to main tutor tomorrow
Another tutor has sent me an email to arrange an academic tutorial? Whatever that is.
Got her for first class tomorrow so will speak to her then

Aubergine 18-03-2018 06:06 PM

I guess it sometimes clashes, but it's just like having a soundtrack, which most films and TV programmes have at points. It's funny. I can listen to music without TV, but I can't watch TV without music. No idea why!

I'm sorry things are tough, Eska. Your housemates good at keeping you company? I'm not sure how many you have!

It's nothing to be embarrassed about, Beckie. Everyone needs help sometimes. I think I read somewhere that there are people on your course that haven't handed any work in at all? I'm sure they'll ask for help! It's OK for you to ask too. :) I hope your main tutor is available tomorrow and you're able to talk to them. Also, an academic tutorial sounds like the perfect opportunity to ask for help catching up. :)

Eska 18-03-2018 06:07 PM

Beckie I second everything Aubergine has said - I have a lot of experience of having to catch up with coursework and I’ve learnt that more is possible than you think when it all feels overwhelming, and that it’s easy to overestimate how badly you’re doing, and that tutors can absolutely be the best when it comes to being supportive and helping so don’t be afraid to ask them.

My week is looking interesting, I’m working Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday so fairly busy. I’m also opening up the shop and running it for the first time on Thursday morning, so a bit scared about that.

Eska 18-03-2018 06:09 PM

I have two housemates, and they’re both in relationships too so it’s not unusual for there to be four or five or six people kicking around the house. They’re good at being there for me.

Aubergine 18-03-2018 06:14 PM

That does sound busy, Eska! Cool that you're opening up the shop and running it - it's great that they trust you to do that. :) I am sure it'll go well.

Oh, that's cool. That's a lot of people! I'm glad they're good at being there for you. That's important. :)

Eska 18-03-2018 06:19 PM

They don’t have a lot of choice! Of the four key holders, three will be away so it’s going to be an interesting time.

It is a lot of people, but it’s a reasonable size house so it’s easy to retreat when I want to! I’m really lucky with my housemates, they are wonderful people.

Aubergine 18-03-2018 06:22 PM

I'm sure you'll be great. :)

Oh, that's good that it's a reasonable sized house and great that they are all wonderful people. :) You are a wonderful person too! :)

I decided against omelette and for jacket potato with tuna mayo. :D It's nice!

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 06:27 PM

Thanks for the reassurance guys
I really appreciate it <3
And yes, you're right Aubergine, some people haven't handed in any work at all.

Im sure you'll do fine Eska :)
And it's great that you live with good people
Makes such a difference!

Ooo yummy!
Tuna mayo is an excellent combo

Aubergine 18-03-2018 06:35 PM

You can do it. <3

It is an excellent combo! :D

I messaged my Dad when I got my uni result the other day to tell him what it was and he has not replied! He's read it because I can see on whatsapp. If I don't reply to him within minutes, he messages me mean things. A "that's good" would have done, but nope. Perhaps I'm expecting too much.

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 06:39 PM

Thats not very nice of him.
Maybe he was busy and meant to reply but forgot?
I do that all the time.

It keeps trying to snow here.

Aubergine 18-03-2018 06:43 PM

Maybe. I don't know. He was last on whatsapp an hour ago and I know he saw it first on Friday. I wouldn't mind him not replying if he didn't give me such a hard time when I don't reply! Oh well. He's a funny folk.

Boo to snow! I hope it stays off for you!

It's mostly gone here. Hopefully we won't get any more overnight!

Eska 18-03-2018 06:44 PM

Aww thank you Aubergine! That isn’t very supportive of you dad :/ You did brilliantly! Hopefully he acknowledges that, maybe when you next see him or something?

Nom tuna mayo potato! Sounds so good.

Eska 18-03-2018 06:45 PM

We still have a good few inches of snow here.

Aubergine 18-03-2018 06:45 PM

Hopefully. :)

It was good! I now want chocolate though and there is none in the house. :'(

zombiehunter 18-03-2018 06:47 PM

i'm ****ing hungry again

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 06:47 PM

That is annoying Aubergine

Boo to no chocolate :(

Hey zombie!
Have you had dinner yet?

Eska 18-03-2018 06:48 PM

Aw that’s a sad state of affairs!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 06:51 PM

Yo Zombie! How's it going?

Eska 18-03-2018 06:53 PM

Hi Zombie!

zombiehunter 18-03-2018 06:56 PM

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 06:59 PM

Sounds delicious, Zombie! :D

I'm good thanks. :)

Look what cat lady has just tagged me in:

Eska 18-03-2018 07:05 PM

Sounds good to me

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 07:07 PM

Awww kitties!! <3

Aubergine 18-03-2018 07:17 PM

Eeep! I can't believe he's mine! I feel mean taking him away from his siblings though... :P

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 07:20 PM

I'm sure he'll love living with you!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 07:23 PM

I hope so. :) My friend was telling me she has an app on her tablet that is a fish game that cats can play! Hehe! There is also a free amazon TV channel for cats. I've got a fire stick, so the cat can watch the TV when I'm at work. :D

Eska 18-03-2018 07:24 PM

Sounds like you’re getting well prepared :)

Aubergine 18-03-2018 07:26 PM


Do you have any pets, Eska?

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 07:27 PM

That sounds cool aubergine!
What a lucky kitty!

Eska 18-03-2018 07:30 PM

I don’t. I had a couple of hamsters when I was younger but that was about eighteen years ago!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 07:31 PM

Hamsters can be cool. :) Though I had a russian dwarf hamster that did nothing but bite people. :P

Eska 18-03-2018 07:33 PM

They can be mean little creatures! I don’t really miss having pets, I know I would struggle with all the hassle.

Aubergine 18-03-2018 07:35 PM

That makes sense. They are a big commitment and need quite a lot doing for them to keep them happy and well.

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 07:35 PM

I had a hamster when I was a kid
I was so devastated when it died that I had to have a day off school!
I was a sensitive child!

Aubergine 18-03-2018 07:36 PM

Aww Beckie. <3

My sister had a hamster and it escaped and disappeared, so my Mum told my sister it was at the vets. It was at the vets for a LONG time...

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 07:38 PM

Haha! Hamsters are good at escaping
I have a friend whose hamster spends a lot of time in 'bath prison' because it keeps escaping!

Eska 18-03-2018 07:38 PM

Yeah, I know I wouldn’t be up to it.

Oh, bless, Beckie! I remember being pretty upset when mine died too.

Aubergine 18-03-2018 07:39 PM

Oh dear! Naughty hamster!

I had pet rats. I loved them a lot. Small animals like that die too quickly though. :(

Eska 18-03-2018 07:40 PM

Rats seem really cool.

Aubergine 18-03-2018 07:41 PM

They are very cool. They used to spend a lot of time sleeping in my pockets/hood. :)

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 07:42 PM

I would love a rat!
They are so adorable

zombiehunter 18-03-2018 07:44 PM

rats keep invading the bins round the back of my houe coco, you want me to capture you one?? :-p

Aubergine 18-03-2018 07:46 PM

Could you get rats, Beckie? I know you're not allowed a cat/dog etc, but would something be OK if it was in a cage? Only if you felt like you'd want to look after them though! And get at least two. They get lonely on their own. :(

Zombie! Pet rats are less flea ridden. :P

Cacoethes 18-03-2018 07:49 PM

Well there's no harm in asking the letting agent!
