Tom arriving at the Olivier Awards 2014 (x)
Woke up early at 6:30am. Exercised briefly, meditated briefly and put on a nice bit of make up and perfume. I grabbed a free apple and breadroll off the buffet breakfast at uni for lunch.
I went to my Anthro tute which was interesting and it’s a good group. After, I did heaps of readings and I felt like I’m getting my motivation back. I then met a friend for lunch where we caught up. Adrienne and I don’t get to see eachother much but we are just able to talk so easily even though we have vastly different interests. Recently, I had offered to buy her tickets for the ballet for here birthday. I offered her two choices but then she went and chose another cheaper version. This made me think that I had made her uncomfortable with the money I was spending. But I brought it up today and it wasn’t tense or awkward at all.
It was after this lunch, that I saw a post from my potential crush interest saying he would like to get lunch with anyone. I messaged saying I was available but went onto to do more readings. Throughout the readings, I was self-conscious that I had made a wrong move. As I went my last lecture of the day, he replied saying that he was with a school friend and was really sorry he couldn’t make it. Mmmm, idk I feel like I need stronger signals that he’s interested too.
Anyway, my last lecture was pretty engaging and I was able to sit between two friends (they didn’t know eachother, it was just coincidence). It was talking to them that I found out that the submission time for the assignment was 9am not 4pm on Monday. This was because of clashing times on two different documents. Ah well, I washed my hands of it and I felt like I did a good enough job of such a hateful and obscure assignment. Also, since I had only eaten a bit of yoghurt and a breadroll, my stomach started rumbling really loudly and embarassingly in this lecture.
At my tutorial next, we talked about Democracy and Republicanism. The tutor split us up into groups and I enjoyed a really good discussion about the flaws and weaknesses of democracy. It evolved into a discussion about how the powerful control the majority, the role of the media and curbing free speech. At times I thought I spoke too much but I felt like I had to lead the group since the tutor was elsewhere. Indeed, at the end of the tutorial, the tutor asked me how she should lead the discussion (wow).
I went to Debating then. After being hungry all day, I got a pizza. I managed to talk to some people but not really to the guy I wanted to talk too. Like I don’t try really hard because a) I don’t want to be clingy and b) I understand that we both probably want to talk to different people. At times though I did feel bored and alone. The topic was that students should be segregated according to level of achievement. My partner and I were Opening Opposition. We came third.
Much tired. Very yawn on bus home. So wait for Dad in cold at bus stop.
