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.

Back here for 4 days due to exam which was really difficult. Things that I studied barely came out. Things that I weren’t sure, BOOM. I’m slightly salty that all the notes I spent doing and memorizing wasn’t put to good use but I just really hope I pass. Please please please let me pass because I cannot be taking a 3 hour train ride up just to go to class, and another 3 hours back down to go home.

But I guess that’s over for now.

So, after experiencing full length sliding windows and full sized mirror on built in wardrobe, everything feels tiny back here. (Even the water pressure is tiny.) And on Saturday, I’m moving my dresser and whatever else I have left back / things we forgot down as I officially vacate my room.

I guess that would complete moving down to Sydney.

I still cannot believe we cleaned this mess up.

1. Only half the floor is clean so there’s a line (an actual line between the floorboards) where shoes have to be taken off before going in further.
2. One of the furniture stores screwed up and sent the coffee table and entertainment unit to my old address so we had to pick it up at the local store. Downside, it was really big and heavy so it took two car trips to get both. Neutral side, We thought it would be flat-pack but it came assembled thus the two car trips but yay to no assembly. Bright side, they refunded us the delivery fee.
3. The bedroom suite was bigger than I thought so, le bf now has my tallboy and a bedside table while I got his cube storage. I also had to buy an extra book?shelf from Ikea to double as wardrobe storage because there were a lot of dead spaces.
4. I finally have a desk and unpacked all my clothes on the 5th day.
5. The taps are too short. Water only reaches half of the kitchen sink.
6. The bathroom sinks are stupidly built. If I bend over to wash my face, either water gets all over the floor or I hit my head on the built in cabinets.
7. I know what to look out for when I buy a house in the future.
8. Today is the 6th day and we are almost done! Still have 4 dining chairs and a pantry rack to assemble, floors to clean, and cardboard boxes to be recycled (We were told to leave them in the garbage room and I think atm, it is still physically possible to enter that room without tripping over flattened boxes. They obviously underestimated how much packing material companies use. Good thing we don’t have neighbours yet.)
