Well hello, it’s March. Time does fly.
But not as fast as I want it to be, but I kind of feel content that it’s not as fast as I want it to be, because if that’s the case I’ll have to die every week speeding up my homework. But yeah, 10 more weeks till spring semester ends. And then there’s the quick intersession period, and the last. ever. semester. And it will all be done, and I’ll be gone from here.
Homesick makes you sick. So stick to a place where you feel like home. That doesn’t mean comfortable bed and squishy pillows plus blanket that keeps you warm. It just means a place where you’re surrounded by the people you know well and love most.
Anyway, it’s only day 1 and I’ve failed to meet the 1000-1600 calories rule. But I did drink a spoonful of olive oil and solved my T-mobile problem, more on that later. So I didn’t eat breakfast this morning, that’s why I overate at lunch and dinner. So, the rule is 3 meals a day. I should follow that!
I had some fish and beans plus broccolis for lunch, and a small cup of froyo. Then at night I had a chicken sandwich plus some sushi, plus some bites of hazelnut dark chocolate. Yum.
And look! My stickers have arrived on mail today, and it’s for sale. E-mail me if interested.
So, about T-mobile… I actually was about to directly go to AT&T and purchase my new prepaid plan and number. But then at the last minute I got myself off at Powell (AT&T store is at Kearny stop on a 38 MUNI line). I went into the T-mobile store and repeated whatever I said to different AT&T customer service representatives. This one now said it must be the BlackBerry that needs to be diagnosed. So he asked me to go ask AT&T to diagnose my phone. How convenient. So I did, and the person said, unfortunately I don’t use their service because technically I’m still using T-mobile as my carrier. So, whatever. I went into another T-mobile store again, which I swung by earlier this week to ask what was wrong with my phone. This guy was completely useless. I spent almost an hour there and all he asked was what I do in school and other personal stuff. He even gave me his number for no reason at all. This was what he said, “Honestly, I really don’t know what I can do right now.” And so I asked him what should I do then. He just shrugged and said, “I don’t know.” And then he just browsed my pictures on my phone and just sit there, watching me talking to the frustrating customer service representative I called from the phone line at T-mobile store. And then I got transferred to another representative, and they hung up on me, so we called customer care again, and this guy just kept on going on and on about how my BlackBerry has to be connected with my T-mobile account, so I have to change my phone model information on my online T-mobile account so that it will work properly. Well, excuse me, I’ve been using T-mobile on this phone for 3 years. And then the guy on the phone put me on hold, claimed he’s been speaking with the supervisor, then asked me to wait for 72 hours so that it should work by then. Well, excuse me, another representative before that asked me to wait for 24 hours. Another one 2 hours while hanging up on me before she finished her sentence. And the guy on the T-mobile store was like, “Call me when it’s working again. Call me when it’s not working either.”
So today was great. I spent less than half an hour in that same T-mobile store. Thank God that guy wasn’t there today. It was another guy. He had a really friendly face, I had to be honest. I tried to express my frustration when I explained the problem with him, but he was so positive and stern about it when he spoke to the customer service representative (you see, a good worker actually help calling up the customer care, but the previous guy who gave me his number is complete useless who wasted 1 hour of my lifetime). Too bad customer service representative transferred him 6 times and asked him to stay on hold for 15 minutes every single time. And you know what? All they did was restarted my plan, like put it on and off the network, and now it works normally again. My initial reaction was: WHY DIDN’T THEY DO THAT FROM THE VERY FIRST TIME I CALLED THEM??????????????????????????
I really was going to write a complain letter about this. But now I don’t really bother anymore. It’s not worth my time. They’ve taken 72 hours, 24 hours, 2 hours, 1 hour of my life, that totals up to 99 hours of useless worrying.
Anyway, the previous 30-day challenge got me into the habit of blogging again. I wasn’t planning on blogging today, but I guess it’s great to have this habit. You’re making yourself accountable.
Since my phone’s now working again, I might want to upload some, if not all of my meals so that this diet’s even more accountable.
Oh, and one other thing: I know I said that I prioritize sleep more than exercise. Well, I do, and will always do, but exercise actually makes you have better sleeps. I finally dreamed last night. I’m so happy that I have dreams in my sleep again. That makes me want to exercise more.
