Destroyer of hard-shelled seeds

Went to see The Nutcracker on Saturday night. What an amazing performance. So emotionally charged and so beautiful. Those ballet dancers must train several times a day to keep in shape. The females were a bit scary even - no chest, no stomach, protruding ribcage. The story was cool. I remember when I was little and my grandma would take me to the ballet and I'd always be saying: "What's happening now? Who is that?". But now it's all easy to understand. Funny to hear kids in the audience asking the questions I used to ask.

Went to Zibibbo beforehand, they have a very cheap (compared to their other meals) pre-theatre menu. Three course dinner for $29.50. That's cheaper than some of their mains! Was pretty cool. The portions were a bit small though, so had to fill up on the water. That didn't go all too well with the theatre lockout until intermission, heheh. Also, the A Reserve next to us was empty so we got a free upgrade, yay. We started some sort of mass migration though as cheaper seats moved to ours, and some even cheaper ones moved to theirs, was pretty lol.

Have had two exams so far: Pharmacology and Organic Chemistry. One more to go this Saturday - Physiology. Then on Sunday, I'm leaving for Auckland. Curry and optometrist tomorrow, friend's birthday on Friday, not sure when I'll get to study or pack. I'm the biggest procrastinator in the world. I think I've got a cold too. Ugh.

Had chicken cordon bleu for dinner tonight, was alright. Sleep now. Zzzzzzzzzzz
