Wow. It's quite rare I walk out of the exam hall feeling so chirpy like today, so this warrants a post. Plus, I haven't written in here in ages.
Of course, I was doing a lit paper. It's always either english or lit if you know me well enough. Where else is there free writing? Where else am I allowed to be intensely pretentious and throw out hyperboles as if they were nothing?
It's an excellent sign if after the exam I'm able to actually discuss the answers with everyone else. This time, I walked out with Denise and Chloe too, and the whole way down it was really fun just messing around with them and joking about. Sometimes I am so thankful for my friends. They can be the loveliest funniest people.
One of the other good updates is that I got new glasses! WHOOP! In fact, I've bought quite an awful lot of things recently, which put me in a very good mood. There was that trip to IMM, which is a pretty good mall if you have extra cash because they've got outlet designer shops there. M got me glasses from Owndays,Simple moisturizer, pimple patches, a Chem textbook, and two pairs of glasses. Then the other day we went grocery shopping, and I know that sounds a bit weird, deriving happiness from groceries, but what can I say? We picked up a lot of nosh that I like, i.e. dried cranberries, Greek yogurt, frozen pancakes. It's probably just cause I got to pick what food we bought.
To add to all of that I also purchased a theraband! It's pink, which was coincidental, because that's my appropriate weight strength for resistance bands. It's darling.
But my favourite new thing of all are my glasses, of course. To be honest, I was frightened to death picking the frames out because this is probably the last time M will ever fund specs for me. (Too many broken / lost). And I ended up hating all the old ones. Specs aren't an accessory for me, they're a neccessity, so if they're ugly: that's it. I am stuck as an ugly warlock forever. That was the case for my old specs, particularly those horrible grandma ones that I wore all the way through primary school. This was before tortoiseshell and big black glasses were the vogue, of course, but why didn't anyone ever tell me?
Thank goodness those times are behind us. This time I was a wee bit cleverer and chose more stylish black ones with tortoiseshell sides- and some people have said that I looked cute, so I really like them. The 2nd pair has only been seen by family so far, because it's the 'trendy' specs, so I've decided to wear those during the holidays when things are more festive. Dorcas and Em say I look Korean in them, so I'll take it as a good thing, because Koreans are tres chic, everyone knows.
The Gloria in the title isn't Gloria the hippo, by the way, it's Gloria from prose in the unseen section for lit. It's such a majestic name. It's also the gloriousness of simple joys.
