It was finally over…and then I got sick

Quite a bit has happened since my last post. First, I completed my Liability exam last Wednesday. It went ok and I'm reasonably pleased but I guess there's no real way to know until after the results come out. Now that this is done I'm unofficially finished with my Masters. I had intended to go out for a big night but between fatigue and (a lot of that) and not trying finding any (ir)responsible adults to go out with mid-week I cam home and slept for about 12 hours! Although I did have a couple of drinks with my classmates post-exam and lunch with a smaller contingent, all in all pretty good. I hope I can stay in touch with them when they go back to study and I'm in the 'real' world. I suppose after going through the semester on junk food + winter rain and cold I was bound to get sick, however I think it's interesting that this happens after going back to 'healthy' foods and the poorly named "immune" fruit drinks. Bah! Not so immune. Nonetheless, despite feeling under the weather I stayed up to watch Australia get into the next stage after its game with Croatia and from there going to an interview for a temp job. Clearly, the excess sleep I got the earlier night helped me out. While I had been hoping to take this week off to catch up on things that was not to be and as a temp when you're offered a contract you really should take it if you don't know when you're next pay-check is coming. So as of today I have begun my new month-long contract with a tech company. It seems to be ok but I am definitely not used to getting up early and today was pretty bad as I'd been up most of the night coughing. Somehow, I don't think it would be appropriate to call in sick on your first day or the second (when that's the morning of an Australia game – suspicious). Over the weekend, while trying to stay warm I also went and watched some friends compete in a kendo tournament. It's very cool to watch, lots of yelling and fast movements. Obviously that's a simplified version of the sport.

Perhaps, the Cold and Flu tablets are to blame or me just being lazy as an excuse for this poorly formulated and structured entry.

 It's freestyling procrastination!
