Propaganda

Standard

It could be, I don’t know. Haven’t read it yet.

There were flyers on the seats in the metro train when I was heading home today. It’s a two-pager on one paper with tiny text about… impending world war three? As I said I haven’t read it yet, but my first thoughts on the thing was “this is going to be ridiculous”.

I’ll get back to this once I read the thing.

I Test-Played The 3DS Today

Standard

It was after I picked up some DS games I ordered yesterday (Pkmn W, Pkmn SS, FF3) I tried my hands at a test level of Super Mario 3D Land.

The little circle d-pad was kinda slow to use, but I guess it’s something to get used to. The game looks gorgeous, like they always do with Mario. The 3D works, but you have to be in the exact middle or it feels a bit sickening.

I suppose 3D while on the public transport will result in nausea then.

 

Holiday Absence

Standard

I was mostly gone my time at home (but suspiciously very active at tumblr). But with the new year and all I’ve got new motivation.

Like this; on the train the seat next to me changed from empty, to one guy, to another guy and finally empty. The first guy was watching Jersey Shore on his laptop. Ew.

My Sense Of Calculating Time…

Standard

… has completely melted. I have troubles figuring out when I have to get up and when I’m gonna go to the bus tomorrow!

But then again, this is the last time. EVER. Glorious!

Oh, and I graduate tomorrow. Party all night long with lots of cake and Bullens Korv. I wouldn’t expect any posts, but maybe…

Late Trains

Standard

I was going for the 14 train today. It was late. No biggie I thought at first.

Until I saw the board and the expected time was after the original departure time.

While waiting for it I pondered whether I should take the bus instead, since the train was so late.

The train came later than said on the board. By that time I was halfway to the mood of sour.

So you know what? I defied my usual logic and decided to wait 10 minutes for the bus!

I was sour and cranky by then. I didn’t want to go on the train. It wasn’t worthy of my company by that time!

Usually I take whatever is the fastest way home. This time it would’ve been the train. It is, normally, scheduled to arrive home 30 minutes before the bus.

This time I didn’t. I’m kind of surprised.

And to top it all of, the bus was cold. Brrr.

Dead Guy On The Bus

Standard

On the bus I always sit on the window seats, if they are available that is. It’s because looking out the window prevents motion sickness and I travel longer than the average person who takes that bus.

Today was no different, until I was 5 minutes from home.

Normally people next to me get off at the station before mine, but this guy didn’t. Normally people shift a bit and get prepared to get off, but this guy didn’t.

He had been still the whole journey. Even when I accidentally elbowed him to zip my jacket, he didn’t move.

So I wondered… What would happen if he happened to be dead? I’ve heard of people dying here and there without people noticing until a while after, but all my sources are the internet so I guess that’s not so credible.

I checked if he was breathing. He was very quiet and still. It was too dark to see anything.

Then all of a sudden I sneezed (I sneeze more than the average person), and he moved instantly afterwards!

I don’t know if he woke up then, or decided to act then. Maybe he is one of those people who are afraid of bacteria, I believe there’s a fancy word for that. He almost flew out of the bus, so maybe…

What would you have done if you had been sitting next to a dead guy for an hour and not noticing?

A Day At The Circus, Or A Day Traveling By Train

Standard

Today was crazy.

In the morning…

  • I got to take the 10:30 train, which was late by one hour.
  • It only went two stations.
  • We were told that ammonia had leaked out at the stopping station and that we were prohibited to leave the train before the buses arrived.
  • Although the bus was already there, and people were walking on the streets. Wut?
  • The bus became super crowded, and there was this dog-lady who kept nagging on her dogs.
  • I was 20 minutes late, but only 5 minutes to class.

In the afternoon…

  • The train was 10 minutes late.

And that was all.

I don’t know why there has been so many delays lately.

Is it because of the weather? The trains are covered in ice and snow. But last winter was worse and there were almost no delays then.

The construction and maintenance of the rails in the neighboring province? I have no idea.

The flooding? Don’t know.

At least I’m not bothered much, until it makes me late for the classes that I like/are super important.

Rainy Day

Standard

When you’re a long distance commuter like me (there’s 60 km between me and my school), climate may change drastically.

Like today, when I left home there was not a sign of rain. The papers said “most cloudy”, which of course was partly true.

When I got to the next town it was raining, heavily. And when I got to my stop it was of course raining.

It continued to rain all throughout the day, to the point where it rained when I got home. Even now, as I write, it’s still raining.

I do need a small umbrella that can fit in my bag, the one I had I accidentally ruined.
