Yesterday's night shift was without a doubt the longest night shift in memory. Not only did I leave the charger but I was tired after waking up early and to make it to play squash I made a deal with my colleague that meant I would work for 40 more minutes into the night. At 4 I felt it had to be at least 7:30 (and I finish at 7! haha)

But I've had today off, and will have tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after that, etc... ;)

My horse gets new shoes tomorrow and then it's nothing but work for me and him! I've been playing around with different bits so far this winter, a bitless bridle, what looks to be a double jointed gag bit (I'm not too familiar with the english words) and my standard double jointed snaffle. So far my horse works best and most efficiently with the snaffle bit. He's on the bit, obeys and is a dear. So yeah, I'll probably be ditching the gag bit and will experiment more with the bitless. We're both still getting used to it but it's an interesting experiment so far.

So my blokey is applying for a teaching position at a university and next Monday he'll go to an interview discussing him possibly studying to become a PhD.

Never thought I'd end up dating a guy like that. Weird how things happen. He asked me what I thought and of course I just told him to go for it he's kept talking about it since I met him. He was worried about me not supporting him through an endeavour like that. It's not ideal money wise but thankfully I don't need him to support me financially. ;)

gosh, I'm at work and it's over 3 hours until I can sleep. I'm knackered. Met my friend briefly and we played squash and now I'm at work feeling exhausted and my battery will run out for the computer since I left the charger at home (d'oh!) so I'll have to stay awake through some other means...

HOWEVER, after tonight, I won't have work until next tuesday in the evening, and then not until saturday next week... :D :D :D

I always swore I'd do something with numbers as a part of my final thesis for my university degree. Wellllll. I'm on a night shift now and had an idea to do something related to how stress/trauma management has been handled in air traffic management. Developments, who is providing, role of employer, etcetc. Which I of course don't feel is very business like but eh eh eh. It's kinda interesting nonetheless. Also, it has relevance in my profession. And there's data available. Lots of data. ;p

Another idea is privatization. A breath of fresh air in an era of nationalization, hahaha. What's probably too obvious is to write about something related to the fall of the banks and recession. Especially after I read about the Asian Crisis and realised the Iceland Crisis is exactly the same sort of crisis. Glad Icelanders managed to re-discover the wheel. Learn something from history? No of course not.

I'm going to be so glad when I finish my degree.

Well, my plan to finish my degree at university was royally fucked up when I realised I had registered for a course I have finished already, haha. Baka Tjara didn't remember having studied 'Crisis Management'. :p Basically now I will have two courses left next winter as well as the final thesis which is not too much except that good old Tjara is going to be a full time student at work and I know it's not a clever idea to do that AND study lots at uni and plan to write my thesis.

Ah well, I tell people that my degree is my hobby now. It is, there's NO work to be had for a BSc in Business in Iceland. An investment bank was nationalised today and more Business grads are likely to get fired. Not that I care, I get paid lots in my current job. I bought a MacBook at the start of this month. :)

I've been scarily emotional regarding my bloke this weekend (dad weekend) and it's messed up. I just want to hug him and I know I'll be fine when I meet him tonight. It's just hard not being 'permitted' to see him (haha, I'm such a loser) but it might change next weekend. There's plans to meet his daughter... we're going to TALK about our next course of action over the next 11 days. ha! It's scary.

Time to do an assignment on political involvement in international business. And then call some film guy and a sound guy. My life's exciting! ;p

I'm writing an assignment on globalization. I had finished writing over 2 pages about international business when I realised the teacher had changed the assignment. WTF? So I had to start from scratch. I'm up to a page and a half now. Whee.

Life's been pretty strange so far in 2009. I'm really happy with everything, although there's some things I feel hard to deal with. For example the fact my blokey has a daughter and is a weekend dad every other week. I've had pretty mixed feelings about it as he doesn't want her to find out just yet. Since I stay at his place almost all the time I find it hard to leave every other weekend, I always feel like I'm being kicked out even if I know it's not like that. Well, technically it is. ;)

I'm kinda scared to discuss it with him because I've been getting so emotional and shit. I know he's doing right by his daughter and I respect that, I just hate not knowing where I stand. As in, what his plans are. Which I can't know because he is trying to ride the wave and see how things go. Introducing us is a process that'll probably take a few weeks when it starts.

I came while she was asleep last weekend though and 'saw' her. So I know she's not a monster. :P I'm just scared. I don't know how guys deal with full time single moms!

Alrighty, better finish the globalization assignment before mister blokey arrives home from work.

The bloke moved this weekend and met my parents for the first time yesterday. Things seem to be moving in such a positive direction. :)

The apartment is so sweet! I'm so happy that he's moved out of the dump he was living in. Everything is new and there's space. He's however opened Pandora's Box by saying he wants me to move in and tells me I can organize the stuff in the apartment. I have so strong opinions, hahaha. I was asking him how he wanted to organize the kitchen yesterday and he sat in a laz-y-boy chair drinking beer telling me 'I leave it up to you'. hahaha. I feel so excited by the whole thing, it's ridiculous. I keep trying to tell myself it's his apartment but he isn't helping by giving me loose reins!

It's retarded how busy I've been. Uni is killing me plus I'm in some committees that I barely have time for and then there's my horse and I need to start going to the gym again.

ALSO I WANNA GET PAID FOR JANUARY!!! Why hasn't my money arrived? ;(

Four weeks since my last blog and I'm very much in a relationship. It feels so right and I'm not scared by it anymore. This guy's a keeper. <3

Well, life's been ridiculously hectic and now I'll be late for work if I don't move it. Chop! Chop!

What crazy two weeks this has been.

I'm sure I've added 50kg in two days. Eugh, it's gross. I can't wait for normal life.

I've also been frolicking about with a blokey, it's happened freakishly quickly. It's been a slight conflict of emotions because I'm used to chasing nasty guys and this one is nothing but kind to me. I'm just scared things are progressing too quickly because I'm always rather tense. :P

I have pretty much until 3rd January off now. I'm going out of town for a few days. :)

So today is day two of writing everything down and so far so good. Of course it helps that I've slept until noon both days, haha.

I hit the gym last night and it was nice. I tried something different for cardio, I hate the suff and have been doing 5 min constant running but I ended up doing 14 minutes, 2 min walking, 2 min running and so on. I'm happy that it's not too hard keeping it up but I get so bored. When I read about people doing 30-45 min I have no idea how they can stand it. I much prefer my bike for cardio! Even then 30 minutes take me really far and I tend to actually enjoy it.

Did day 2 of my new 3x split. I like the fact it's shorter, haha. Makes me more motivated to lift heavier.

Ive been stuck inside today doing a marketing research assignment. I feel like crying I hate it so much. It's a GROUP assignment I had to do alone. groar. Tomorrow the plan is to go biking. I wanted to do intervals but it's snowing, raining and freezing and changes every hour so the ground's not suitable for any kind of sprinting. Might hit the hills instead! Rough road = better grip.
