Give your piece of mind Suppose now is a good time as any to return to the blogging routine after a week long break since being back home.
And what have I been up to for the whole week when I was not up and about flitting from shopping mall to flea market to visiting people; well KH2 of course. Odd isn't it. The first thing to get my whole mind and body wrapped upon is this particular PS2 game. It just ate up a whole week's worth of my precious time which could've been spent shopping, getting reacquainted with old friends, lounging round the house watching long awaited unwatched movies and television shows, and just relaxing to the fullest I can get out of this month long break before having to return for another semester worth of IH goings-on, tests, assignments, late night phone calls and IM-ing, and cramming sessions. I'm almost done with the game as you can tell since I actually have time to blog instead of spending hours just seated on the couch and trying to get past mindless minions of Heartless.
I was really supposed to begin my shopping venture today but due to a detour of having my wisdom tooth surgically removed yesterday, it's being postponed to another day. The right side of my face is pratically swollen to the point that I can hardly open my mouth without my whole jaw partially hurting as well. If I talk too fast, it even hurts as well to laugh. I'm being put on a partial liquid diet for the next few days till I get the stiches out next week which is when my results will be out too. The jitter bugs are getting to me already but I'm not going to let the nerves deter me from having a fulfilling second week of pure nothingness.
Alright so Spain got kicked out by France but there're still Portugal and the Italians to support. But I'm only approaching this with half-heartedness since the Spaniards are unfortunately out. The World Cup experience is almost over for me as of now. Ah well. That's football for you.
Relishing the precious moments I get to spend in my room now. Numerous items of mine are strewn all across the room as I have yet to fully clear them all and put them in their rightful places nor really settled into being "home" as of yet. I'm actually kind of missing the IH feeling where there're people around you all the time and that there's always something going on every hour in someone's room or in the JCR or dining hall or outside of IH walls. I'm only going to be away from IH for a month but it feels strangely longer than that. Imagine me getting all sentimental about not being in Melbourne. Weirder things have happened though. It's just a bit disconcerting to be in a place with only five other people around you when you've had about a hundred or so other people within walking distance of you for the past four months.
Most of the presents brough back have been given away already leaving a rather satisfied taste in my mouth. I felt a bit like Santa Claus then.
So far, the weather's been quite patient with me or maybe I'm the one who's being patient with the sweltering heat of day and night. I got a new camera to replace my old one. It's nice to feel slightly spoiled once in a while. Will be putting it to good use and fun when I get back to Melbourne life once more.
Anyway, time to leave you loyal and faithful readers of mine to your own lifes to be contented with now. Will be back with more news and hopefully better life stories to regale about.
