Wow. Just wow. Four months have literally flown by. Feels like just yesterday that I was sitting nervously at the airport, waiting to get on the plane that would take me to my new home – my university. And now, I’m sitting back at the home I started from, completely overwhelmed at the way time flies. At this rate, I’ll be old and wrinkled before I know it!! Ok, that’s depressing. I’ll choose not to think about that right now.
Happy thoughts. That’s what I need to get me out of this depressed mode. And I have them in plenty. The last day of sem was fabulous. (The last exam, of course, wasn’t! :P) The moment the clock struck 7, my friends and I bolted out of the exam hall, dodging all questions about how the exam went. 8 o’ clock, and we were at Orchard. Ah, beautiful Orchard, decked in Christmas décor. Admittedly, the decorations were a little on the tacky side, but I don’t care. I swear, the moment you step into the street and see holly wreaths and pine trees in every shop, you feel the festive spirit sink in. Orchard brings out the celebratory side of me. 😉
The five of us went shopping, but as usual, didn’t end up buying much at all. I’m not very keen on shopping, but when you’ve got four other wacky girls to joke around with, anything can become enjoyable. Hee. After a very late dinner, we went to watch the 11.30 pm show of Harry Potter 4. 3 hours of pure enjoyment. Now, I do have my complaints about the movie (I’m a perfectionist, I am!! :P), but I’ll save that for another post. All I have to say that the movie was worth staying up till 5 in the morning for – it was thoroughly splendid spending all that time with the gals, trying to figure out which part of the book they had cut out and which lines were not originally from the book. It helped that the guy playing Cedric Diggory was quite the charmer!! 😉
We came back to campus at around 3 in the morning. Since I’d not done an ounce of packing, I started right away. It wasn’t all that bad as I thought it would be (I tend to exaggerate the difficulties of packing…as demonstrated here) and with all the help Macho Girl and Anna gave me, it got done in a surprisingly short time. The flight home wasn’t bad either, though I really wish I’d slept the night before… I managed to watch ‘ 50 First Dates’, but missed the chance to see about 59 other movies, because I was so darn sleepy!! What a waste of an SQ flight…damn.
Well, I’m home now, pigging out on Mom’s food and trying to re-watch every episode of Friends ever aired and having a jolly good time. (Would help if the comp at home wasn’t so slow…I hate having to wait 5 mins for a page to load, especially when I’ve become so used to broadband in 4 months!! Computers spoil people, really…)
That’s about it for now. Hope to keep updating often; keep checking! :)
