It’s 1.34am and I’m writing about antioxidant levels in broccoli.
My friend thinks I care that her eyes hurt after staring at the computer screen doing ‘work’ all evening.
I couldn’t give a shit.
I have to go to a funeral for my grandad tomorrow. She knows that.
I have to still finish TWO essays (one 1,000 words and another 3,000 word one) before the funeral. She knows that.
WHY THE FUCK IS SHE COMPLAINING TO ME ABOUT HER EYES.
I planned to be up and dressed by now. Obviously I’m not. I didn’t get to sleep till 2.30am and woke up at 8am after ignoring 6 alarms from 7am.
I have to finish 3 bits of coursework and go to my lecture by tonight. That’s just the uni stuff I have to do.
“It is a curious thing, the death of a loved one. We all know that our time in this world is limited, and that eventually all of us will end up underneath some sheet, never to wake up. And yet it is always a surprise when it happens to someone we know. It is like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark, and thinking there is one more stair than there is. Your foot falls down, through the air, and there is a sickly moment of dark surprise as you try and readjust the way you thought of things.”
It’s 1.33am and I just dropped my Friends box set when I was taking it off the shelf…hopefully my flatmates didn’t wake up because of it.
SHIT FUCK CRAP AND EVERY OTHER BAD WORD.
I missed the deadline for my dream job.
Aiya Van Kooten everyone
When Aiya Van Kooten stood face-to-face with a burglar in her bedroom, her left eye twitched, then she went into “predator mode”.
“I screamed at him… jumped off my chair, leaped over my bed and sprinted after him down the stairs,” she said.
This is the best story of my life
“Although she was the only one home, Van Kooten said she had no regard for her safety - instead, she said she was just overwhelmed with “rage“….. ummmmm Hero!!!
Haha, badass Muslim woman. Love it!!!
This lady is so awesome. She lives with her grandma and was studying and had a towel on her head and no shoes but she chased them out of her garden, kicked one up the arse as he climbed a fence, they dropped a camera and laptop, she flagged down a passing driver to help her continue the pursuit, and they finally caught one of them in a park and pinned him as the police arrived. Now she’s going to visit the burglar in prison for the next few months to help with his rehabilitation.
So in summary:
This lady doesn’t just defend her home and loved ones, she will hunt you down, team up with other skilled individuals, get you put away, and then teach you the consequences of your actions until you’re a valuable member of society once more.
Seriously she’s a frigging superhero.
