Chocolate Cake and Flamingos  


For those who follow me on Tumblr, you probably already know about what I'm calling 'The Card Incident'. At first, I was angry at my bank. Now, I realise that it's a bit of both of our faults. I wasn't smart enough to go get cash out before I went to the bank. I wasn't smart enough to go, "Oh, wait. Hold on. Before you cancel it, can I just get $60 out so I can, you know, survive the next week?" I didn't even think to go to one of the other desks and withdraw some money of my account. It's not all my fault, of course. The bank along with the postal service is to blame for this but annoyingly enough so am I.

Admitting that is annoying for many reasons but namely because I almost pass out over the sink this afternoon because I hadn't eaten all day. I'm not talking Not-Since-Breakfast. I'm talking Woke-Up-And-Did-Not-Touch-Food. Which is really bad. So, yes, I fell against the wall a few times and probably looked like Lady Gaga, sliding up and down the wall doing some fly ass moves in my attempt to get back to my room. It was embarrassing. People saw. I drowned my worries in Sweet Chilli Sauce covered Mac and Cheese.

I'm feeling a little better now and, thankfully, tomorrow is Monday. (I would like you to know that was the strangest thing I have ever written. Just for clarification.) Which means the bank is open! I will finally be able to get money out and go grocery shopping so I can put an end to showing off my fly Lady Gaga moves to my unsuspecting flatmates.

I will also be able to focus for the first time in days (No food equals no concentration. Who'd have thought!). With a test in two days, an essay due in three, and three 9 o'clock classes to attend, I'm going to need all the energy I can get.

Also, cake. Seriously, I've been craving chocolate cake like crazy these past few days. I even dream about eating it. Nothing else happens in the dreams (besides the usual flamingo cameo) besides the eating of said chocolate cake. That is how intensely I am craving it.

I think the saddest thing about 'The Card Incident' is that I actually had this awesome LJ post prepared to post when I got home. It was on my writing method. I poured my heart and soul into it. The moment 'The Card Incident' came about, I couldn't bring myself to post it. Once I've gotten back from grocery shopping tomorrow, I shall finish my final tweeks to it and finally post it.

For tonight, however, I am done.

Love you all.

*HUGS* Yikes! I'm so sorry you've had to go through "the Card Incident," Alice! I don't know how I would've been able to handle that if I were to go through something similar. If I could, I'd magically reach through the computer screen and hand you some chocolate cake now! Since I can't...keep surviving!

Thankfully all went well with my plan. I now have food! No chocolate cake but at least I have good. I forgot how much I loved vegetables. Seriously. Last night for dinner, I added like a million vegetables to my meal until it pretty much turned into 'Vegetables with a side of Bolognese'. Got my test today though and I was so exhausted yesterday that I got no study done what so ever. Thankfully it's open book otherwise I would be doomed.
