Finally got the net back. Feels like forever, but it was only like 5 days!

So, my family has moved to a temporary house -- it's really nice. I feel strange living here though. Like camping. I only have the most basic of things with me, my desk is now a cardboard box.

I didn't realise how much I rely on the computer/internet. Without it, I couldn't do so much stuff. But it also freed up so much time. I think that I'm going to cut back on my net time. Or at least until exams are over. :D

And I'm copying this from Hooi's blog, but I thought that it was sooooooo good. Simon emailed this to me as well. Hope you guys don't mind me "stealing" it.

Random Quote of the Day:

"Most of us, when we are in the listener's role, feel compelled to be speakers. We feel a compulsive inner urgency to interrupt others as soon as they start to reveal themselves. We feel a strange obligation to advise them, and to support our advice with a few chapters from our autobiographies. We jump in at the first pause, and go on non-stop unless we are exhausted and the other person is near despair. Regrettably, I have done this to others. I have also had this done to me. I have experienced the sadness of not being heard because someone had not cared enough to listen to my sharing and to learn who I really am." -- John Powell

Simon: I spend more time annoying my sister when I'm bored so it's worse for her if we don't have the net/TV.

Amy: Aw, you'll listen to me? So nice! *grinz*
