last night a guy said to me “you are very, very pretty” and i said “i know” and he said like patronisingly “you KNOW?” and i said “you think you’re the first person to ever compliment me?” and he didn’t know where to go from there
A year later and still my world

Done my first day, it went really well :) the first module is mostly a broad overview of basic business so we covered business law, organisational structure, debt liability, and a lot of other stuff, and we even did a (brief) bit on how culture affects businesses so individualism vs collectivism, staunch capitalist societies vs socialist ones etc- tbf I think I knew more about that than the teacher but it was reassuring to do some stuff that I knew.
I need to speak to the admin staff about booking my first exam as I have to have copies of my A-Level certificates before I can confirm the booking but my old school seem to have lost them, so I might have to pay a ridiculous amount for new copies.
When I got home I cooked some peppered mackerel with chopped tomatoes, spices and mushrooms, and had it with wilted spinach, courgette and swede mash. I also did my food shopping, which was mostly fruit/veg and lots of yummy things to go in salads for lunch (tuna, kidney beans, boiled eggs, mozzarella etc).
Also dropped in to see my parents, gave my mum my keys as she’s now our cleaner at the flat (like properly employed, not just me convincing her to do it bc I’m lazy but bc my flatmates are v messy and I can’t keep up with it), booked a haircut, went for a run (10 x 100m sprints and 100m walking), and made lunch for tomorrow.
So after that v busy day I’m finally in bed watching the 100 and enjoying some hard-earned chocolate. Ready to do it again in 7 hours time…
THIS IS SUCH AN ACCURATE REPRESENTATION OF CATS IF CATS COULD TALK THIS IS WHAT THEY WOULD SAY
Alaa, an ambulance driver, feeds cats in Masaken Hanano in Aleppo. Alaa buys about $4 of meat everyday to feed about 150 abandoned cats in Masaken Hanano, a neigbourhood in Aleppo that has been deserted because of shelling from forces loyal to Syria’s President Bashar Al-Assad. Alaa said that he has been feeding and taking care of the cats for over 2 months.
