Hard times

Had to say goodbye to Greg lastnight as he flew off to San Francisco this morning. It'll be the longest we've been in different countries for a while. Hope he has a great time. I'll miss him :(

Fire alarm antics

Just finished my exams yesterday evening and was looking forward to my first sleep in since sometime in April. Unfortunately was woken up by the fire alarm in residences going off at the crack of dawn this morning! One of the pressure pipes/valves upstairs was pumping water out everywhere. I was freezing outside in my pjs and bare feet while they temporarily fixed the problem! Still possible that the water might leak down into our apartment, especially as we could hear it flowing down in the water cupboard. Here's hoping it doesn't ruin our rooms!

Eeeeeeeeep! Eeeeeeexam!

So stressed about tomorrow's Calculus on manifolds exam that I've been feeling sick all day :( not to mention the panic attacks :( I can't honestly see myself passing in this state, especially if the exam hall is full. Makes me want to run away and never go back to ucd.
