Re: QM - The Haunted Mint

I missed having you here so much!
(And I always meant to email you, but I'm so bad at that!)

Welcome back, Libra!

Your house finding adventures are a neverending story. I hope this Netherlands thing works and that you have a much easier time finding a place there!

Re: QM - The Haunted Mint

Wow system requirements are extremely tame, but it might still be too much for an older laptop (or desktop) on Intel graphics (mostly because the recent add-on increased the requirements).

It should most definitely not reboot the system though :/

Re: QM - The Haunted Mint

Had a nice afternoon with best friend and a mutual friend - the one with the very long phone calls. I hope we can now manage to meet more often instead of talking on the phone.

Re: QM - The Haunted Mint

But on the other hand, my mother just told me that my primary school teacher died this summer.

Re: QM - The Haunted Mint

I need to do stuff, because I have classes next week, which means travelling, and leaving very early, but I don't want to. I'm tired and my head hurts.

Re: QM - The Haunted Mint

*huggles all*

I'm sorry to hear that Ylvs. And thank you for the topicy thing.

Liiiiiiibraaaa! *pouncyhuggles* I can't wait for january. Are we still doing a December moot?

Good luck on classes, magpie!

I spent my morning teaching kids to code. Spent the afternoon helping Ivo (help my mom) to hang some strips to hang paintings from (those things near the ceiling with wires). And then we went out to eat Japanese. Now I need to kick myself to go and do my exercises, so I don't have to tell my therapist tomorrow that I didn't do anything again this week.

Re: QM - The Haunted Mint

I still haven't started doing anything. Well, I tried to find out what time I do have to be there tomorrow, but apparently I don't have an email about that? I know I read it somewhere, so it was probably in a letter, but where in all my piles of paper could that be?

Re: QM - The Haunted Mint

At least you are still at home to find out... I had that problem when I was on the train this morning. Only to find out that my phone didn't want to connect me to the internet. I did manage to find it in the end, but that wasn't a good idea.

Re: QM - The Haunted Mint

I can't find a letter either.
Well, I'll just have to hope it's at nine, like it has been for the last classes at that school.

Re: QM - The Haunted Mint

And I'm just not feeling well in general, but I don't even have the time or energy to talk about it today.

Can I just have some hugs?

Re: QM - The Haunted Mint

*curls up around the teddy bear*


And can someone remind me tomorrow - no matter what, whatever happens at school or however tired I am, I have to write two emails?

Re: QM - The Haunted Mint

As far as I know, none of the people whose numbers I have are in that (elective) class.

It's always been nine before (a bit later than the other days, for those of us who have to travel there), so it seems safe to assume it'll be nine again.

Time for me to head out. Even though I really, really don't want to.

Fantastic. Didn't check how often the trams run this early in the morning. I'll probably miss my train.

Re: QM - The Haunted Mint

Good luck, Magpie :-/

I have one of those Monday things gnawing at my leg as well, but yours got up earlier and seems more vicious.

Re: QM - The Haunted Mint

The train left just as I had bought my ticket.

Taking another train to St Pölten now, but then I'll have to wait about 45 minutes for the connection to Langenlois. And then I'll be about an hour late for school, and the list to sign up for lunch will already be gone, so I'll have to figure out how to get lunch after all, and probably fifteen other things...

I know there are way worse things that could happen, but I just want to whine right now.
