Waiting for my goddamn Ikea delivery to arrive.
Been waiting at home for four hours. Been on hold for twenty minutes. They’re playing Abba. This is the first time I’ve ever been mad at Sweden. That’s right Sweden. I’m looking at you.

Before I begin, it’s only fair that I say that I am in a grumpy mood as far as babies go. Last night my neighbours decided to let their child, who I can only assume is at teething age, to cry (squeal) for half an hour at five in the morning on my most stressful day of the week.

For those of you that are unfamiliar, UEA management announced that they were going to close one of our sister schools MUS (in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities). A recommendation to stop offering music...

On the verge of a burnout.
