I went to bed angry last night, and I was still angry when I woke up this morning.

No prizes for guessing who's the culprit(s) to piss me off.

C*, D*'s boyfriend, came over AGAIN yesterday, and stayed on for the rest of the day + night.

I was willing to overlook that by simply heading to bed early and hoping that he won't be there anymore when I wake up in the morning. Who knows whether he will feel like calling sick again since he's ONLY done it TWICE last week. :|

Then I was woken up at 6.30am by the noises this rude ass boyfriend-and-girlfriend team made in the kitchen as they were getting ready for work.

After both of them finally left the apartment, I walked out to the kitchen to find a whole sink of unwashed dishes as usual. Believe me when I say that ever since we've moved into this new apartment, there's been dishes in the sink, without fail, each and every time I walk into the kitchen.

Did they not know that according to a survey, leaving dirty dishes in the sink is the no.1 most annoying traits of housemates?

Normally I wouldn't mind because I'm one of those people who can't stand having dirty dishes in the sink, so I've been cleaning up for them everyday for the past 6 months. And this is for someone who's never had to do her own dishes at home.

But what puzzled me and pissed me off the most is, this is the exact thing (among many other) that D* has been complaining about her previous flatmate. So how can she turn around to do to me the exact same thing that she's been bitching about someone else?

Some people and their selfish double standards. *Sighs*

I'd think that if you could wake up an hour earlier to send your boyfriend off and then go back to sleep before you have to get up for work yourself, you could at least spare 5 minutes to clean up the mess you guys have made, no?

And do you, honestly, not see a problem other people might have with your boyfriend coming over unannounced ALL DA TIME?!

That guy spends more than 90% of his time at our place that he might as well move in and start paying rent!

But of course, if that's the case, I'll GLADLY move out in a heartbeat so they can make this place their "annoyance central".

(Not that I haven't been thinking about moving out every day for the past 6 months. :|)

To make the matter worse, the guy has no shame or courtesy at all and he acts like he owns the place.

Dude, I didn't pay thousands of dollars a month for this place so you can shamelessly freeload and hog my living room 24/7 while acting like man of the house! So grow up, stop being such a prick, and learn to respect people around you for a change.

Anyway, moving on.

I had the 36th and 37th lesson for my Secret Project Australia with my new instructor in the afternoon.

Because of all the "newness", I don't quite know how I feel about it yet. I couldn't tell whether I was doing better or worse, I didn't even know whether I was doing the right or wrong things!

I was confused. I felt like I was flying blind.

I'm a creature of stability and routines. I feel completely lost and horrified when I'm thrown into new situations or environments.

Which is why I'm very nervous about tomorrow.

I've decided to take up the offer on an experimental basis to see how things go, and though it's not something entirely new to me, it's something that I haven't done for a while now.

I feel so out of touch and clueless that I'm absolutely terrified!

I only agreed to try out the offer purely due to peer pressure. I didn't want to be perceived as an unappreciative lazy bum, which I probably am. Haha.

But the truth is, I really am not sure whether I'm ready to take up a new role and give up those long carefree days of lazing around, long lunches, and shopping as the most important agenda in my Moleskine daily planner.

I guess we will see.

For now, I better go enjoy the rest of my afternoon of bumming around not doing anything at all.
