Is this it?

Listening to: 'I Can't Give You Anything But Love' by The Harvard Krokodiloes [Black Tie Affair]

I came home early today. Now I know why I try not to come home early. I've been bored for I don't know how long. I've become more efficient in my cooking, so that doesn't take nearly as long as it could...and because I'm not talking to anyone, I finish eating quickly too. BBC seems to be pre-occupied with the piggy plague.

Thing is, I have stuff to do. There's a pile of handwashing. Dishes to wash. A presentation to prepare. Experiments to plan. A thesis to start writing (properly). Covers to record. And what am I doing? Typing a nonsensical blog post and DMing on Twitter.

This isn't gonna change, is it? I'll finish the PhD, get a job somewhere (hopefully), I'll work all day and come home in the evenings, and...I'll have nothing to do. It's weird. One of the things I hate about my mega-long experiments is that they disrupt my routine. But at the same time, I find this 'routine' suffocating. Or maybe I like the idea of a routine, but I don't like the routine I have right now. Either way, it doesn't bode well for the future.

Sigh, I'm off. The left-overs need to go into the fridge.


  1. Ah ha! The flip side of being independent – tell me about it!

    Don’t get a goldfish, it will only bind you to your humble abode. Pets need looking after, you know...

  2. Yeah! Dont hunt down for a pet though you cant even seem to take care of yourself.

    Pile of handwashing?? I could do that for you! Mom says Am only good at that, even though I hate it. =D


Speak now, or forever hold your peace (well not really)!
