"There's always tomorrow"


I am still feeling lost without my computer, but "luckily" for me, I am working Monday-Saturday this week, so I haven't had that much time to fret...

My new computer has already arrived and my dad and brother are helping me install all the needed programs (it's incredible how much you need!) while I get to focus on my essay. Which was due last week, so my reaction is probably best described with: "Gaaaaaah!"

If I were in Niger now, I would just shrug my shoulders and listen to people say: "Don't worry, there is always tomorrow!"

But in the Western World, there is never a tomorrow, because the "tomorrows" are always booked in advance. No wonder I miss Niger!!!

Not to talk about my little horsie darlings... :-) Just hugging them is stress therapy...

I wonder if they would write my essay for me as well? Now that would be some marvelous little barb mares!


OK, got to go back to work - enough longing for one day. Just needed to have it said: I am missing my girls to bits right now.

How long have you been procrastinating that essay now?? It's just hilarious!

Ishtar said...

Yes, maybe I should open a new blog entitled "How to Never Finish Your Sociolinguistic Essay"!

Great shot, now get back to writing that essay:-) I procrastinate also. I am great at starting things, horrible with middles, and ends are nearly impossible. Good luck girl.

"But in the Western World, there is never a tomorrow, because the "tomorrows" are always booked in advance."

What a perfect way to sum up why it is so hard to live the southern life in the northern hemisphere. So glad you stopped by my blog! Good luck with your computer.

I say forget the essay and keep hugging that horse!
