Tuesday 25th February
Exam T-minus 3 days, no sleep.
Wonderful wakeup call at 5am. Had only just got back to sleep after coughing at 2am. B being really loud, could hear R, JG and JI as well as two others. There was some guy asleep in the kitchen who I woke up hahahahahah.
As I had finished my antibiotics, I went back to the Bristol “better” GP. She advised to get bloods taken and go for a chest x-ray at hosp as well as keeping up the steamy baths. She had silver nails and silver eyeshadow, eyes lined black under her glasses. I wasn’t quite convinced by the getup.
When I got back, I had a puff of the inhaler she subscribed and I looked up where the nearest hosp was and started to decide whether to face the extortionate parking fines. As I was pondering, I had already heard R and a female voice next door. I heard B chatting to someone who had come out of the kitch, presumably the guy who had been there this morning. She left to go and do her presentation. Unnamed sounded whiny, found out was called P. They knocked on R’s door as unnamed girl was P’s friend, various comments about who or who wasn’t naked, “just go in” says B and then second time before B leaves he tries and its locked – she says wait in the living room. Great!
Whiny “Noname, weee need to go, so and so has gone for lunch already, I’m going to go outside and smoke and you let me back in?”
I left, locked the front door, ignoring him outside. He kept trying to look at me as I did so and then didn’t really move out of the way to let me out. Really. And he looked like an idiot, think he grabbed the door before it closed, unfortunately – although wanted to stop him, didn’t want to talk to him. Only felt slightly smug locking the door on him. HA.
Was sunny, walked passed a pub called Snuff Mills, even though it was at least 40 mins away from where its namesake actually was…. Strolled straight into general x-ray, “what’s your Christian name?” (- interesting) took about 20mins, strolled home.
Whilst getting lunch in the kitch, the bell went and then R came in. He didn’t deserve much of a greeting, looking ugh. Corridor had smelled ugh, like redbull. No questions about the girl, I had started to wash up so I would have something in which to have lunch in! “Did you hear B last night?” he wanted to get water so I said and indicated he could use it, ignoring the q. Door went, me – “Ah there it goes again!” He hesitated and then went. I heard someone come to fix the shower.
R “are you upset about last night?”
me “No, why would I be upset about being woken up at 5am?”
R sigh, but no sorry “You have to understand, it’s going to happen, hasn’t happened in a while, we are freshers…BLAH BLAH – K didn’t complain”
me “Well K is hardly here”
R “But blaaah blaah”
me “R, seriously, I’ve said everything on this to B”
R “Aaaaggghhh, I cant be bothered with this”
He left, I was then able to stress and cry over the carrot soup whilst looking out over the car park, ignoring the recycling.
Thought I heard R and girl, chatting or whatever. I plugged into iplayer, headphones on. I had the soup and then laid down to listen to the last bit of Mccreeevieeee after the agricultural drama (haha).
I heard R and K chatting K “Oh I didn’t hear a thing last night” TYPICAL. Bloody typical. But he had said before, he didn’t care anyway…
Carried on with a bit of practice exam and then Mum rang for Skype around 5. I put music on one laptop by the door and slumped against the wall, she wanted to know why I had been asked for a chest x-ray. I didn’t know – response had been to check nothing had been missed. Mum said she could come get me, as I was so upset and tired from no sleep. She said to throw in revision in a bag and come. I insisted I would drive after emailing Jane about my exams for advice based on what happens should the x-ray shows something? Can’t remember. Grabbed some bags out, put in work, washing, food, only grabbed fridge stuff most needed eating. Shoved it in the car. Went back in to wash up – filled up sink, put stuff in. Went to move nick-able items from cub to room, came back and K was washing his plates! WTF as well as some unknown girl “It’s big in here, tidy etc, unusual to see you doing this – you look really domestic”
K ”One off”
me “You should do it more often”
K took ages but said – “I’ll do yours”
me “DW” JUST HURRY UP. He got rid of the water so I sped on. B came in at some point, I didn’t actually hear what she said.
“Are you off home to study”
“Did you go to the Docs”
“Yes, I had an x-ray”
B “Well that’s good”
Me “Well, it is and it isn’t…”
B ”I’m sooooooo sorrrrryyy, T and MG said I was sooooooo louuuuddd”
Me “Uh huh”
She went out, I finished washing up. Grabbed stuff. Just bout to get into car and saw B “You going now?” me “yeah” B “Ok See ya later” me “yeh”
Got petrol, sped home – got back 7.45. Just unloaded, on step when Baby pulls up with sis 1 and Mum. After unloading and hugs. Mum looked at my arms, took a photo – worried about swelling. Watched lots of The Goodwife then supper. Didn’t really feel like eating much. Wid was really smelly. Watched Death in paradise (loada rubbish!). Looked for clothing to wear – hardly had anything
Plan to contact doc tomo to find out what the xray was about. Sooo many pillows, Mum took numbers to ring doc during work tomorrow, bad sleep, lots of cough, bashed elbow and knee.
