Maritess versus Superfriends
Another Smack-thigh funny video grabbed from COM203 lecture.
Humans have a gift for fantasy, through which they seek to reshape reality into more satisfying forms than those encountered in daily life.
Fantasy or fiction permits people to objectify their anxieties and fears, confronts them, and fulfil their hopes in fiction if not in fact.
A fictional world sounds good to me. Don’t they always ?
It’s a Bluey monday morning. Dswei just flew off again and i’m in my morning lecture, and so not concentrating. Hunger, boredom and missing a friend can kill a day. Thinking of what’s ahead for the rest of the day and for the rest of the week is also making me nervous.
Alright. Now back to preparing The Goose Who Laid Golden Eggs fable for my story telling tutorial class later in a while. Siansation to the very maximum.
Today is probably one of the coldest day in Singapore’s history. Awesome. But now that i got to do laundry myself back in hall, wet weather worries me cos’ i worry about them all the time when i’m in class. “Shuwei So Aunty”.. Get that all the time.
Got back home this morning after a night of mahjong at Wing’s room. Totally felt like i was in chalet all over again. But TGIF in hall is actually quite happening cos’ people actually do it the tgif way in style over there. There is even a Pub in campus (called the Mayflower – I know, Chees-seh) and we hung out there after Preview with Asahi beers and silly games. Tgif huh.
Obviously in some serious deprival of sleep after yet another busy hellish busy week in hall, i finally caught up with it and slept like never before just now. Missed dinner and some exciting Olympics moments completely. And resultant ? I really want to sleep early tonight but my sleeping clock is completely thwarted. Roars. Someone just knock me out please.
Can’t believe tomorrow is Sunday already and i will be back in Cocoa-Smell island. But before i drag my big fat ass back there, i have a whole pile of assignments and readings to be completed. All these were piled and accumulated since the start of the week and especially thinking about my close to 100 pages worth of readings is like shoving a piece of tissue paper and a ball of hair down my throat – I can’t breathe.
I really need to stop being such an ass in my time management.
For now, i just can’t wait for D&D to be over so that i can have my nights to myself. But oh wells, by then dswei won’t be around anymore for company so foresee many lonesome nights ahead. No one is going to visit me in hall anymore. Sighs
Think i better get going. Need to be ready for a day of assignments tomorrow. Rooars.
Back to lonesome night. Dswei just left and now i only have my lappy to accompany me. But…i’m happy enough with tonight 🙂
Overslept and missed the 830am lecture today for my Very First Time. But seriously, i think my time table suck and i just realised this after quite a number of people Zomged at when they saw it. It is really pretty packed. Roars.
Had a last minute lunch with my dear nus girls at JP (i.e Jurong Point) and must really thank Pam for navigating her way all the way here to Pulau Ntu. Those girls couldn’t stop exclaiming about how Far NTU is. I know i know… I feel like i’m crossing the immigration custom whenever i come back to hall on Sunday evenings too. But anyway, meeting up with those girls made my entire day. Awesome.
Happy girl i am.
A busy week ended off with a very pleasant surprise visit from my dear friends like Slim, Tracy and punk rock chick Siyou. Smiley face icons everywhere. Just came back from supper with them and here i am, sitting in the dark with my hair wet while my dear roomie is deeply asleep in her corner. Haha.
Bedtime here in hall doesn’t exist. Even if it does, i think it is like 3am for everyone. If it is not supper, it is mahjong. If it is not mahjong, it is chilling out. I swear it is a chalet here.
Yayness. Tomorrow is Friday. My very important TGIF ! Which means i can head back to civilization and be closer to my loved ones. I miss everyone back at home, i miss my girlfriends, i miss Hougang, i miss the purple line. I miss my life.
Many things in the coming weeks and months. I need some Positivity.
But till then, i don’t know why but i am just so mother happy that i just saw my dear friends from civilization and that tomorrow is Friday.
