The Only Reason I Am Writing This Right Now Is Because I Opened My Statics Textbook
Last weekend I was so busy during the day that this weekend feels very odd because I literally have nothing planned which resulted me opening up my textbook to try and do homework which subsequently led too me writing this and not doing statics. Anyway, I think a great test of your self-control is how long you can let you tea cool down before you take that first sip. Based on how often I've burned my tongue these past few weeks I would say that I lack the necessary self-control to function. Tea is objectively good, like it's a good drink that tastes good while it also aids digestion, cures depression, liberates marginalized groups from their oppressors, etc etc. The problem with hot tea is that it's too hot when you first pour it. The cool down time is in fact the worse because you've made this perfect drink and suddenly you're expected to wait before you take a sip? So there you are, reluctantly setting the cup down on the table trying to distract yourself until it's cool enough to take a sip and then you're faced with the decision of picking it back up after a solid two seconds just to try it. Just like, a tiny sip, like you kinda put your lips to the cup and inhale but you don't tip the cup at all cause it's not a real sip just like a fake one it's like audible you know but there's no real substance to it. So you've convinced yourself to take the fake sip and so you're lowering your head to meet the cup halfway cause you don't really wanna lift the cup or else you'll take and just full on chug your tea and by now you've realized how little resolve you have because literally the water is still at a rolling boil in your cup and no matter how small of a sip you're going to get burned. There you are though, lips at the cup about to take a fake sip when what little self-control you had left fucking vanishes and you just tip the cup for a real sip and now you've fucking done it. You ruined everything because you couldn't wait seven minutes until the tea was at the perfect drinking temperature so instead you went and burned your tongue. Is this like a common human experience? Comment below how often you burn your tongue, what kind of tea you generally burn your tongue on, and how many spoons of sweetener you put in your tea or if you even put any in at all.
I thought most of the stress in my life would be gone post-essay/exam mess Thursday night but on Tuesday of this week I ended up ordering these warm brown chelsea boots because I just haven't gone shopping in so long. I think I went shopping for clothes once this past summer with my mom and that's after I had finished working at my horrible summer job. So the point is that my wardrobe has been largely stagnant for a while but I also haven't necessarily been bothered by that until Tuesday when I was walking home from class and I saw this one guy in some pretty tight jeans, like my type of jeans, wearing these super cute brown chelsea boots and like a long grey coat and it just looked good. And the minute I saw that I knew I had to get my own pair of brown chelsea boots. I have a pair of black ones but now I need brown ones clearly. So I went on the search, found a pair, decided to participate in the free home try-on program which sounded like a great idea, and hit order in like two seconds. I've sent them to my apartment though and this is where my new stress acne is coming from. All was going well until I realized that I might not be here when the boots get here!!! I'm leaving Tuesday afternoon the minute my class ends because my mother is anxious to see her son again and so she explicitly asked me how early my classes end on Tuesday and now I've committed to leaving as soon as possible. Now I have these damn boots coming to my doorstep on Wednesday and I'm like terrified they're not gonna be there when I get back from break. I should've ordered them and shipped them to my house instead of my apartment and all would be well and I would have zero stress acne anymore but no I couldn't think far enough ahead. Like we all think a week is enough for boots to get shipped right I ordered them on Tuesday night they should've been shipped on like Wednesday but I got the email that they shipped on Friday... like what happened in two days that you couldn't slap a sticker on the box and send them my way???? Let's all hope the African black soap can deal with this break out cause ya boy is sweatin over these boots. I honestly don't know what I'm gonna do about the package like should I ask someone to keep it while I'm away, maybe Omar will be here still and can take it inside, or maybe I should just take the risk and let it sit at my doorstep? If you have any solutions to my self-created problems please help.
Holiday season is here so obviously I've been thinking about what everyone else has been thinking: what am I gonna put on my wish list???? There's a pretty fine line as to what you can and can't put on a reasonable wish list. For example, you should generally think about the price of the gifts you want and they should probably fit on a normalized curve. Anyway the only items I have on my list so far are an off-white turtleneck from Uniqlo, a print from livingpattern.net, and maybe a cast iron skillet. The first two require very little explanation but the cast iron skillet has been something I've been thinking about a lot. It's kind of too practical for me but at the same time like I honestly would never spend the money on one but I have been curious in trying some recipes that utilize a cast iron skillet. I just love the idea of one pot anything but many one-pot recipes go from stove to oven and my pots and pans aren't oven safe so I would have to transfer the food into my ovenware but that defeats the purpose of one-pot recipes. So, the cast iron skillet is intriguing and I think if I just happened to posses one I could make use of it. I don't know what else I want to put on the list though which I think is something as a child I never thought would happen. Like, at age 8 I didn't think by age 19 I would be satisfied enough with my earthly possessions that my wish list would become scarce. Maybe I'll ask for a tapestry? My room decor could use some work but I also feel like since Omar and I are moving upstairs next year that I'm living in some kind of in-between arrangement and heavily decorating is unnecessary. But anyway, someone could buy me a nice tapestry I don't feel like using my paycheck on. Perhaps I'll keep you guys updated on my wish list but I've become so enlightened that I guess things just don't really cut it for me anymore. I need to cross the astral plane in search of other things to dedicate my life to. I'll definitely keep you all updated on that.
Glad to have gotten some of these things off my chest today. Thanks for listening, perhaps I'll start doing statics now but that's a real coin flip. As always, stay tuned for the drama of it all.
