I splurged out on Thursday, a little too much as usual. But I did buy my father and sister's birthday presents - and my sister's DVD was on sale for £4.99, so that ain't bad. I got the soundtrack of LWW and Tiger Bay by Saint Etienne, which I really should have bought before. I am utterly obsessed by this album now. It's like a breath of Mediterranean air; listening to it, it feels like I'm back in Madrid, and I could step out onto a street and feel like I'm in an oven. I knew I'd like at least one song on there, I didn't realise I'd like so much. Buying more Saint Etienne albums in the future. And I got Kung Fu Hustle, which is hilarious and makes me want to buy Shaolin Soccer. All of these were below £10, but it still added up to £30 with the student discount. Ouch. Then I went into Ottakar's to get my dad's birthday present (autobiography) and ended up buying The Hobbit and Love in the Time of Cholera as well. At least that had £1 off it. Then I bought some food. x_x Bad Laura. I really shouldn't go near the shops.
I have too much homework. As usual. One translation that I should have handed in on Monday, one on Thursday, one that should be done for Tuesday - the difficult part is not the translating, it's getting it aligned in Trados. Fun fun fun.
Nobody has phoned me back about a job despite all my applications. Am feeling frustrated and angry. What do I have to do to get a job around here?
And to top it all off, I want to finish Chapter Five of Exiles instead of focusing on my translations. Argh.
