I’m starting a new job tomorrow. I’ll be sure to tell you all about that later, but today I’m just trying to relax and not be too terrified. I’m enjoying my final day of freedom before omg everything is hectic begins. And I’m trying to think about anything but tomorrow.

So, let’s think about pasta, okay? I like pasta.

This is the perfect recipe for a day like today. Creamy, comforting, just the thing to relax me. And it only took about 15 minutes to make, so no stress whatsoever. Happy happy happy, calm calm calm. Breathe in, breathe out.

So, I’m not thinking about tomorrow. Not at all. Although, it’s pretty hard to stop yourself from thinking about something. Like they say in Inception, if you try not to think about elephants, you just can’t stop thinking about elephants.

Now I’m just thinking about Inception – that’s alright, I’m okay with that.

I love that film. What do you think happens at the end? I’d like to think the spinning top falls over.

Although, I often don’t understand films, so while I’m pretty sure I followed Inception… I probably didn’t. Maybe my understanding of the story is totally different to everyone else’s.

Oh well, I like Leonardo DiCaprio so it’s all good, I still got something out of that movie. I’m just going to continue floating around in my own little world where I think about elephants and pasta and pretty actors and I just don’t think about tomorrow.
