it never stops ticking anyway.
I hate countdowns. why does countdown exists? when you’re excited, time seems to pass too slow. it feels even slower when you count down seconds, minutes, hours and days. it’s the same when you loathe something, it makes you so nervous that it eats you up inside and distracts you to no end.
doing my work at the cafe was rather productive. I think the reason why library isn’t exactly the place for me because the atmosphere is too tensed, I can’t quite put my finger on it but it affects me in some odd ways. the aura stresses me out. ironically, the cafe which was filled with people chatting/moving about and the music lightly playing in the background, was more relaxing and i was able to focus better. I don’t know, maybe I’m just trying to be weird here. or maybe I’m just weird.
that aside, today felt good. I’m going to do this more regularly. I think.
is this one of those random cold wars that i haven’t been notified about and that i have zero idea of what’s really going on…?
i’m always left puzzled.
table for three.
we were lead to a lovely spot next to the window and it was quite an epic lunch. it was also one of the lunches that i would have never expected myself to have, not because the food was bad (in fact, it was GREAT) it was the people i was spending time with. friends that i knew but never had the chance to hang out; i am partly to be blamed because i have always been sticking to myself and drowning in my own world until one day, i shook myself and said “that was it. you need to go out and mingle with more people.”
and so i did.
apparently an award winning ice cream shop with over 36 flavours… which i did not try in the end because lunch was too filling. i don’t know if i’m regretting this now.
ah, these photos looked much better on tumblr than on facebook but anyway, these were taken at Windermere, Lake District yesterday.
it’s such a pretty place and thank God for the great weather during first half of the day. it rained in Grasmere (another part of Lake District) so i didn’t bother going down from the bus even though most of them did (not that i missed much anyway tbh)
Windermere gave me some York vibes.. it’s the whole rustic buildings and tiny shops. glad i took a day off from this stressful period plus i also managed to do some photography! haven’t had the chance to do that since my last Christmas trip so yup, most of the photos turned out great thanks to the picturesque lake. the 45 minutes cruise ride was really relaxing and enjoyable :)
aaanyyyywwayyy, time to tie myself down to reality. hard times will come first.
p.s; click on the photos to enlarge!
wish I could just stay in bed and do nothing but I’m getting more stressed up as time passes.
time to do more work so I can spend my Saturday leisurely at Lake District!
