2:24 pm - a quick post
So far away from where you are
These miles have torn us worlds apart
And I miss you
Yeah, I miss you
And I wish you were here

- Found a new place to stay for the next year, can't wait to move. It's funny how Danielle's going to be the only white person in the house, it's going to be me, her + 3 Asian boys.


- Snowboarding trip is finally happening in 3 weeks! I'm so excited! :) I just hope I don't get bruised knees or a concussion.

- I don't think I spoke about my trip to NYC over the break, but it was probably one of the best Christmases I've had; what with spending Christmas day with the entire family watching & mocking our baby videos at grandma's place & a broken table at the end of dinner. I do think however most of it had to do with my dad being here & getting to be with him twice this year has truly been a blessing.

5:57 pm - talk about small.

You have got to be kidding me, seriously, what are the odds?!

12:00 am - scattered
Yesterday, Vic and I went with Caro's family down to Burlington's waterfront for Ribfest. 18 award-winning ribbers setting up booths to compete for the best ribs award, live music, great location... it was a good distraction to keep my mind off missing Singapore.




On a separate note, I'm still in the midst of getting used to living under the same roof as these party kids, who don't always pick up after themselves and blast music too loud too late. I think I've just attained a new found appreciation for my past housemates, sigh.

11:37 pm - layover

So I'm at the HongKong Airport now. Have I ever mentioned this is my favourite airport? I don't know how many airports I've been at, at least 15 I'm guessing, but this one ranks number one. I don't usually enjoy layovers but if they happen to be here, I wouldn't mind spending half the day here, haha.

I'm sitting by myself in the open area cafeteria that overlooks gates 20-32, one minute the area's empty the next it's bustling with people. Right now it's close to midnight so duty-free browsing is no longer an option, good thing starbucks opens late here. A lot of them travel in pairs here, friends, young couples, businessmen, more couples... I wonder if lesser families are taking trips overseas together.

Anyway, the cafeteria is close to empty and I have 2 hours to kill. Ugh.

Annoyed with everything and everyone. Time to disappear for a bit.

12:11 pm - it's like everything we say has some sort of sexual innuendo behind it




Yesterday we travelled to TO, and for the first time we actually looked up decent places to eat instead of the usual shopping and roaming around the same old area. Because we left Hamilton really late, when we reached we headed straight to New Generation Sushi, stuffed ourselves full and walked a good forty minutes down to the harbour afterwards. We met up with Jared and he showed us up to his absolutely gorgeous place at the Pinnacle Centre and we all ended up hanging there past midnight before catching the last bus back. The funniest thing I remember about last night was that when we were out in his tiny balcony, suddenly we heard the sound of water trickling and looked out to realise that the man living above him was peeing out into the

Volunteering at the rehab centre for spinal cord injury
Pigging out (a lot)

Pathetic-ly jobless

To come:

Tanning in my patio (weather has been shitty)
Toronto trip coming up, maybe I'll get to see Teresa if we meet
Get my liscence (no idea when I'll ever get down to it)
Waiting on my mom to settle air ticket issues

12:07 pm - just that tiny stretch left.

Just one more paper left and second year is done! This is the plan for the next couple days: mad studying the entire weekend, tea on monday afternoon with some of the FH girls, more mad studying, exam on Tuesday night, rush home to change and then head to a party at Quarters to end the year off.

My life in summary: wake, eat, study, sleep. 2 weeks and 4 papers to go. Hustle hustle hustle.

3:24 pm - there's never a lovely goodbye.





A recap of yesterday.

Our very last game for the year, and the very last game for 2 of our graduating players with Mac FH. We drew 3-3 (one of which was scored by me, heehee), went into penalty flicks and came out victorious. We didn't win the tournament, but it was a good close for what has been an amazing season.

Later at night we gathered at Snooty Fox for dinner and surprised the 2 graduating players + our captain who's stepping down, with flowers and cards and the sobfest began halfway through the captain's speech. James (our coach) was absent because he chose to prepare his presentation over us so we hopped into 3 cars and drove to ambush him at his place; 12 girls in the cold, huddled together, laughing at the awkwardly stunned him.

This is what I have missed most about leaving, and although I always say it can't compare to what I had before, I think I can settle with this, because this doesn't have to be awesome to be good enough.

3:30 pm - Relay for Life!


Every year around this time, we have Relay for Life. A charity event where we raise money for cancer research, and every year Mac Field Hockey does it as a team, somehow I missed out on it last year but anyway... we take turns to walk round the track from 7pm-7am. Probably one of the more eventful things we've done as a team since half the socials are drunk fests and practices are just... practices.

A few things that I want to remember from this year:

#1 7 out of the 10 of us had absolutely no sleep during the event, I also drank no coffee in preparation for a dental appointment next week haha, so I'm surprised I managed to last through the entire night staying perky and talkative.

#2 I think I might have spent about 5-6 hours out in the track; playing hockey, walking, a couple of rounds of jogging, busting some moves to the music, eating trail mix out of the huge bucket..

#3 Favourite moments: karaoke (I video-ed our song, chickened out last minute, hahaha), performance by the Mac Improv Team, the hand game, stealing Bry's blackberry and changing my name to God followed by texting her "why hello there!" (pretty sure she's going to torture me the next couple weeks), being chatted up by Israeli frat boys who got consistently burned by Michelle.

#4 Team talks about going varsity, and plans to cut the outdoor team further so that people will take practice more seriously.
 


 

We've already set plans for Relay 2010, hope it'll be even better than this one! :D

7:24 pm - 11.
we need to figure us out
cause we can't keep going
so far away from knowing what we're all about
we need to figure us out
cause i still want you around
somehow

I have been on a good academic streak lately, topped the class (along with a few others i'm thinking) in one of my Kin cores, and have decent marks in the other 2. I have a bad feeling though that the next 2 are going to be trashy and I hope they don't screw me up too badly.

Otherwise, I think the lighter workload has allowed me to incorporate more fun and late nights compared to the last semester, haha, of course it also has something to do with the freedom of being legal too.

Last qualifying game tomorrow, I hope we make it through to the later rounds!

5:45 pm - your heavy heart is made of stone.

Wow, when was the last time I updated this thing? A couple of things worth mentioning I guess?

1. This week is spring break, other than catching chick flicks and shopping for girly clothes and hearing about family drama the rest is the same: good food, proper conversation, much needed sleep.

2. Tonight we're having a surprise fiesta for Andrew which was planned less than 24 hours ago. Tomorrow's Chris' birthday at Koi, I'm so excited! Except I think it's going to blow huge holes in my pocket, not that I haven't spent enough this week.

3. I have skipped so many French classes that I feel like I don't even take the course anymore.

4. The Fray's new album is awesomeeeeeee. "You Found Me" has been majorly overplayed by radio stations though.

5. Just a little over 2 months and I'll be done with half my undergrad education, it still scares me to death how close I am to really being on my own. I just want to be in school my whole life sometimes, haha.

6. There are people who I think I'm losing (or have lost) track of, people who I miss too much, and people I'm hanging out with because of routine and not genuine interest. I'm running out of things to say, tired of keeping up and sick of the same old empty words.

7. On the other hand, I am starting to revamp my closet and got myself 2 casual dresses and more girly clothes to come :D

1:09 pm - fast cars,
Was back from NYC saturday, I miss it already. First day of school today, went well, major slacking. Love the timetable minus the 830am classes.

Also, I think I'm going to stop writing soon. It's becoming more of a chore than a routine.

11:26 pm - birthday week so far,

 
10th: I think I'm under the curse of having an exam every year during my birthday; last year it was calculus and this year it was anatomy. My dad called me the night before and wished me a happy 20th, I didn't know whether it was more funny or depressing at that time. But the housemates and I headed out to Monfort for some middle eastern food and beeeeeeer, tried Rickard's White, and I'm beginning to think that I love Canadian Beer more than anything right now.

11th: Not so suprise phone call which was delightful but too short and I've to admit I was unbelivably happy, it kind of made me miss the people back in sg a little more.

12th: SURPRISE PACKAGE (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) came in the afternoon when I was lazing around; I was so thrilled I promptly stabbed the cardboard box with a pair of scissors and ripped the tape apart (yes I was that violent), but I absolutely loved it, I think I've expressed enough gratitude already but thankyou again if you see this :D Later that evening, we headed to Black Forrest Inn for some German food, the wait was long but well worth it, what with the cute waiter, my gigantic mug of Canadian and surprise cake slice. We ended the night off with a couple rounds of pool, of which 3 out of 4 of the winning shots were made by me, hurhurhur.

13th: Out with the high school friends tonight for Korean food, we didn't end up drinking soju as planned because one was flying off tomorrow and the other 2 had exams to finish. We did try prank-calling this take-out place because we wanted to hear the lady say "wai, beijing hut, how may I help you" in her heavy mainland china accent but the wrong person picked up while we were putting the call on speaker in the restaurant, so we hung up on the poor man, heh.

Grades come out next week apparently and I'm scared as shit. I honestly don't think I've done well this semester at all and just thinking about my Chemistry grade makes me sick all over because I've never written a more screwed up exam than that one. I just really really really hope everything goes well and that I dont fuck up too badly. I'm already prepared for the drop in my GPA and to work like a horse come winter semester, honestly this whole dream of grad school is making me go a little crazy I'm still thinking if it's worth it, gahhhh.

But my parents are here now and I see them Tuesday and I just turned legal, so I ought to be happy and not be a worry-wart all over again... NYC in 8 days! :D
