Ever since I got myself a Netflix account, I have been watching a lot of shows. But this is the first time in a long while (since Veronica Mars, probably) that I am really blown away by the acting chops of an actress in a TV series. She is really amazing. She is even better than the show, which is actually a really good series. It's focused on the intriguing storyline and doesn't get distracted by boring romantic subplots (I was very happy to discover that they dropped the romance between the main clone and this super hot guy halfway through the first season, as I thought it was super lame and predictable). Of course, the never-ending conspiracy theories and new big bad at the end of every season can get old after a while, so I guess it's a good thing that the fifth season will be the final one. Good shows should not be dragged past their expiry dates, I believe.
Anyway, I just wanted to declare my love for Tatiana Maslany. A truly incredible actress.
So apart from the cute barista who gave me free coffee and banana at Fitzbillies, today was a shitty day. My not going to the gym in the morning unsurprisingly put me in a lethargic state for the rest of the day. I didn't focus enough after the previous entry, and so I couldn't finish what I'd wanted, even after going back to the library post-dinner.
I thought I'd lost my Tag Heuer today. It's my 21st birthday present from my parents so it has tremendous sentimental value. I left the library for dinner, and while walking through the scholar's garden, I realised that I wasn't wearing my watch. I went back to the library to retrieve it but I couldn't find it, so I thought maybe I didn't wear it out after all. When I came back to my room, I couldn't find it either. I was really afraid that I'd accidentally dropped it, or that someone had nipped it from the library (I always remove my watch when I type, leaving it somewhere on the table) while I was out. I was feeling sad already throughout dinner, and I felt this pure feeling panic when I returned to the library after dinner and couldn't find it.
Eventually, I found it nestled between some sheets of paper and a book that was below those sheets of paper. I am very messy when I work, so I guess it's not surprising that I'd left my watch obscured amidst the mess, too.
I need to go to the gym tomorrow morning despite my playing tennis in the evening (I don't like to wash my hair twice in a day). Not going to the gym before writing really makes me very sleepy and lethargic.
