So instead of cleaning my room, I have been cleaning/clearing through my laptop - which, let's be honest, is almost more of a 'room' to me than anything else.

I came across a quote that pretty much sums up my high school experience:

Mum: [Speaks in Charlie Brown teacher-language.] [Pause.] "What are you doing tonight?"
Kiwi: [Watches computer monitor.] "Homework."
M: [Cracks up uncontrollably.]
K: [Looks over with a raised eyebrow and a frown.] "*What?*"
M: "Oh, you KNOW what! It’s Friday night!"
K: [Goes back to looking at the monitor and pouting, mumbling about a mother's lack of respect for nerdiness.]

I also found a document filled with my favourite comments from an old teacher's emails. It cracked me up. I'll share them some day. :)

Back to going through documents, then poking at my real physical room! I hope it doesn't eat me. My room is pretty well known for doing that...

I will be thrilled if I can see my carpet by tonight.

Nice procrastination from actual mess. And I enjoyed the conversation quote, it reminded me (granted I had to dig a bit) of my own experience at school, but my mother knew me too well when she laughed or chastised. My head was a million other places for those years.

Much hasn't changed in that respect though. :|

Good luck cleaning up, or you'll probably leave it til 'tomorrow' if you're anything like me. :)

Mmm, my mother definitely got it too. :) I wish I were more able to be like that presently...just nonchalant about school, while still very interested and a hard worker. Just not so invested in the actual grades. Remembering the priority of learning and staying sane!

Haha, I left it 'til tomorrow. And now I'm back in England, have been for more than 12 hours, and guess who will be doing her unpacking tomorrow...?

LOL Nice. I hope you can see your carpet soon, what colour is it?

It was supposed to be tan... *scratches head* I don't think it stayed that way through the years...

Actually, I've just realised my carpets are the same colour at home and at uni. That is flabbergasting to me, somehow!

LMAO that is ace! I have a lovely blue carpet at home. Here I have a school carpet covering my floor.
