FIVE YEARS AGO (STELLENBOSCH UNIVERSITY)
Us: Yay, public holiday! PARTAAAAAY! Can you believe they’re actually having classes on Friday, like anyone’s really going to show up hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahaha WHATEVERRRRR. Let’s go to Terrace!!!
TODAY (THE REAL WORLD)
Me: This fecking public holiday, I’ve worked late the last two days just to make up the lost time. And of course, so many people are taking Friday off too which is more time lost. *grumble grumble* SO STRESSED HEAD EXPLOSION.
Flatmate: I worked from 7 am to midnight yesterday. So. Shut up.
[DISCLAIMER: She didn’t actually say this to me because I haven’t actually seen her in 48 hours. But I bet she would say this if we cross paths again one day.]
