Pointless Worry.

I've got one of those colds that makes your nights and mornings dreadful, but the middle of your day almost normal. It means that the awful headaches and blocked nose creeps up on your throughout the evening and forces you to bed. Rubbish.

I went to move some stuff in at my new student house yesterday. I knew I had the worst room due to my godawful luck at picking numbers out of a hat, but I'd been hoping that the room wasn't as bad as I'd worked up in my head. Sadly it was worse. Tiny, with only room for a small bed and with - wait for it - an old sink in one corner, I now have literally no idea how I'm going to fit anything in it. The bed appears to take up 3/4s of the room on its own... But there is nothing that can be done about it now, my luck has failed me and I am confined to a pea-sized ex-bathroom for a year. At least it will fully encourage me to spend time in the uni library more and attempt a decent dissertation!!
Any other students who have to/have had to deal with rubbish rooms and landlords??
Since I've only been ill/ working/ feeling sorry for myself lately, I don't have much to offer, but this evening I did go out with my family to celebrate my parent's 27th wedding anniversary, and this is what I wore =]
