THESE SHOES WERE MADE FOR WALKING...


No they were not. -_-  The Wicked Witch of The West made these shoes! When I first saw them, I fell in love; firstly because of its metallic gold-gray colour (not really clear in the photo), and secondly because they were on MASSIVE sale!! I tried them on and they felt alright....Little did I know that these shoes had other plans for me...
It’s not even the length of the heels that was a problem to me-I have shoes with much longer heels....these shoes tend to TIGHTEN at the front as you walk-I was thinking my feet had grown bigger overnight, till my friend, who is two shoe sizes smaller than me wore them. We didn’t even get to the bus stop and she took them off and walked back to the house barefoot to get other shoes....I made the mistake of making a 2-hour journey in these shoes and I think that has been one of my biggest regrets this year....I got back home with toes as red as Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer ...at least, that night, I discovered that I have a high threshold for pain...I don’t even know if that’s a good thing...lol.
Anyway....The past 2 weeks have been sort of a roller-coaster ride for me...A lot of things seemed to be going wrong...and they were happening in succession! Argh!! I am a Christian though, so I prayed about it, talked to my mum (who is such a fabulous person) and tried to smile through it all...and on Friday, things started getting better! *whew!*  I know these sort of things happen to everyone....we all go through some things that make you just want to give up; but right before I started university, I learnt that life is not a bunch of roses; however it is also not always a dull cloudy day-the sun will definitely break through the clouds.....The UK weather is a perfect illustration of this..hehehe
Last week was reading week...this is when we have very few or no lectures at all and use the time to catch up on work and try to understand topics we didn’t understand. We combined students and the first year LLBs had coursework as well...that was our first assessment for this term....duh-dummm....
I worked really hard on this coursework; but I’m not really sure if the work I presented was good enough; but then again I’m never 100% sure of any work I submit till I get the results..lol...Well, I hope I do really well in it, even though it only accounts for 10% of the total mark for the year-every little helps! I will let you know how I fared when I get it back....
October has gone by really quickly.....just one more day and then it’s November!!! One more day to my No Meat Challenge! One more day to extra cold conditions!! “yay”< --- A very sarcastic one....Oooh apparently,  its already snowing in 49 of the 50 states in USA (funky Florida is yet to be hit)...I hope it doesn’t snow here till Christmas day...lool...fingers crossed... :s
Happy Halloween guys! Happy Birthday to my friend Lale and Wishing all the Best to my best (and only) Clearing supervisor, Axel, who is leaving to Mauritius!!
...and until the next post, its bye for now.xoxo
