haha it’s february! time passes so fast sigh.
ohwell it’s been ok i suppose! sunday was great even though i had mild fainting spells in the morning (been happening quite often these days) because there was a foodtasting session at sichuandouhua for my cousin’s wedding and the food was sooo good. i just like ate all the herbal chicken cos it was so soft and tender and ahhh. haha. and my cousin-in-law’s cousin (which makes him my distant cousin?!) was also from hc, one year older than i am. so he’s in army now. it was nice talking to them cos we’re from hc and all that and we were talking about going to chinatown and discovered that we all go to the same dessert shop at temple street where the dumplings are super nice! hhaha is amazing.
don’t really feel like celebrating new year this year though. i think it’s because most of the prep hasn’t been done yet cos my mum’s so busy shuttling back and forth to and fro the hospital, and i just come and go out of the house cos there’s no one at home anyway. so it’s quite empty. good news is my grandma’s being discharged next week before cny, and even though she can’t cook it’ll still be happy. and i just discovered what a horrible mistake i made when i signed up for that politics forum we were all going to because my cousin’s wedding is on the 26th and i’m doing the first reading for her wedding mass! arggghhhh. but really want to go for forum! howhowhow. argh decisions decisions.
school was ok i suppose- actually felt quite awake. am going out with mum tmr to go shopping for cny stuff and hopefully clothes and all. haven’t bought anything yet. checked econs marks today and didn’t do too badly so i’m not too unhappy about that. have been managing average marks for econs the whole of last year except for the first two tests in j1 where i got 46/50 and 40/50 which i convinced myself was a fluke and really turned out to be haha. keith topped econs (ok along with like, 7 other people but his name was first so yeah) which he was amazed at and so was i but it’s ok it’s a happy thing!
i think it’s an amazing development to be j2. so many things change! and it’s all quite new and unfamiliar. like zh says it’s the last year you’ll ever wear a uniform. which is true even though it’s a sack of a uniform. i miss my rgs uniform so much cos it was so comfortable to wear and sit in. but then again like all things this too must pass.
vday is coming! shall get flowers or something. now that i’m not under any obligations i can give flowers to anyone i want. then again it’s not like i ever cared about the fact that giving flowers to anyone i wanted might hurt somebody else. i think i just assumed maturity was in the package. it’s true what they say about being alone and envious when you see all these couples about but most of the time it’s quite happy being this way. once in awhile it gets thrust in your face then you just feel horrible. you notice how i don’t bother to couch this in nice words anymore. last year i wrote a terribly lyrical analysis on valentine’s day but this year i’m all plebewords. talking about love, queen’s crazylittlethingcalledlove is a lovely song. and have been spamming scorpions the whole weekend. scorpions live is fantastic.
btw i’ve discovered that tomyam and vitasoy is possibly quite a lethal combination. everytime i eat that (which is everyday) i feel like puking. it feels horrible but i love bothh of them so i just eat it anyway. and i eat it so often the auntie knows me by name and speaks to me in cantonese. that day i ate that for lunch and went running after seow’s lessons and then i just died after walking back to class cos while i was walking to the toilet my vision started whitening and my ears started ringing so i couldn’t see or hear anything. managed to stumble my way to the toilet and then sit down, and after i puked everything out i felt lots better. i think these fainting spells are weird (shh gabriel) but! the things i do for food sigh.
