I woke up this morning to the bf saying there’s good news and bad news.

Turns out, the first orchid he bought for me isn’t doing so well. For the past few days, I’ve been looking at it, wondering why this particular bud wasn’t blooming. The moss was wet so maybe too much sun is making it sad? The bottom (bigger) leaves have been droopy for a while and I kept thinking they were gonna fall out since new ones were growing.

New growth doesn’t really scream sad plant, does it?

Anyway, he took the orchid out of its pot and behold, 80% of its roots were rotted/rotting, some just crumbled and fell off. There was even mould growing at the bottom! Due to the lack of roots taking up water, it explains why the moss remained wet with minimal watering.

I passed!

Holy crap. I got so excited seeing my grade that I almost cried. I was hoping for just a pass but got a credit instead so either the paper was really hard and the whole cohort did badly thus they had to scale it or, I did really well for the MCQ to cover the sorry excuse I did for the short/long answer questions.

Either way, I passed my last module! Now on to adult-ing of mundane adult life :’)

Update 21/12/17 : // Not scammed! The person only posted it out on the 17th and I received it on the 19th. Phew.

Someone was selling a brand new 72 set Derwent watercolour pencils and I thought, why not? My set of 24 is rather limited and the 36 one doesn’t have the shades I wanted. The retail price is around 100 and she wanted 60 which seemed reasonable. (Shipping was another 10 dollars extra).

I was slightly paranoid when I saw all her items listed on gumtree was “Brand new” and it was all generic images of the product but I went ahead with it because trying to scam people with colour pencils and heaters seemed a bit…strange.

The next warning sign came when I requested paypal and she said she didn’t have it. Who in this day and age doesn’t have paypal?! But I realised my sister doesn’t have it so it is possible for someone to not have paypal in this day and age.

Anyway, I went on with the transaction, did a bank transfer, and asked if there would be tracking. She replied yes and that it would be provided once she posts it and… na da. Communication stopped. She was supposed to mail it by yesterday, latest, but I haven’t heard anything back. I figured she (who knows if it is even a she) might be busy but I am so worried.

50% chance I’m making a molehill out of nothing but this is so stressful.

Please don’t let it be a scam.
