They say settling down's the hardest thing

First of all, let me clarify that when I say settling down, I mean settling down to a life routine and not the whole finding the right person to spend my life with and spending our whole lives together meaning. If you thought I was referring to the latter, you are dead on mistaken because Im still too young for that stuff and there's also the fact that I have no 'candidates' in my life...... OR DO I? Thats another post for the future, huhu.

I digress, so back to the matter at hand. What's in my head you ask, well the reason why the title of this post is as so is because, I cant seem to settle down into the life of University! I feel bored that Im confined to the life of classes and books. I think its just a phase in my life that I feel discontent with whatever I have. No matter how much it dawns upon me that Im in university to get an education and books and classes are just the norm that comes with it but I just cant seem to shake this feeling of dissatisfaction.

I hear people telling me that university is probably the best time in ones life and that we should really enjoy it to the fullest; exploring our capabilities and shortcomings by engaging ourselves in all that it has to offer. Thinking back over that statement, I ask myself whether am I making full use of my so called 'best time of my life' term? I myself dont know. Well there's no gauge to actually measure this which makes it even harder to evaluate. The ending of this semester marks the end of my second year here which means that half of my time here has pass. Thinking back, I could always extend another year just to get more out of uni, but thats out of the question. We've all got to move on in our life and university life is just one segment in our whole life and be that as it may, the best time in our life but everything has to end. Knowing it will eventually come to an end and I've only got 2 years left makes me wonder if what I've done so far was gratifying?

What are my emotions? A little bit of everything I would say. Happy that I've come to know many awesome people Im proud to now call my friends. Sad that there are those simple minded people who shun me because of difference. Angry that not everything went as I would have liked it to go. Regret that I could have done things better than I've did. Hardship from all thats done. Confused whether as to I chose the right path in life. Fearful of the future that lies ahead of me. Why am I so theological in this post, I also have no idea. The stress of upcoming exams together with the feeling of homesickness could be one of the reasons.

I know I left many question unanswered but believe me, I'll would gladly answer them if only I knew. Now Im feeling so emo, at the bright side at least I have the look to go with it. Haha. Until my next post

April Fools day came early this year!

Before I start this post, let me emphasize that the joke thats's in this post is an extreme exaggeration and my intent is not to hurt any parties feelings.

Traditionally April fools day falls on the 1st of April but this year, it came one day earlier which is on the 31st of March. Why is this so? Thats because the biggest joke I got that day was my college dinner! HAHAHAHA! Relax people, this is a joke okay? Im so sorry if I hurt anyones feeling but once thought of, this joke just had to come out! Im still laughing to myself when I think of it... LOL! Okay back to the post. Well I didnt think it was that bad but there were certain things I didnt really enjoy during the dinner. First and foremost, the FOOD! The portion was quite little and come on people, its a dinner for college kids! Its not a dinner for senior citizens or cancer patients (I apologize for this remark if some are offended), its of HEALTHY COLLEGE STUDENTS!! College students eat a lot! So by the end of the dinner my stomach was only filled to half of its capacity. The lychee dessert tasted a little funky and according to my roomate, it tasted like pesticide. How he knows how pesticides tastes like Im not sure and Im pretty sure I dont wanna know, but I kinda get what he's saying. It tastes like cough syrup but the bitterness is tenfold! The performance was not really entertaining. I dont blame the performers, I blame the sound system. The sound of the musical instruments got drowned out by the musicians voices and I couldnt really get into the beat of the music. This problem also had something to do with the fact that I was sitting quite a distance from the stage.. heheh. But the planning committee had time to think of all these kinks and potholes that may arise and also solutions to these problems. Once again I aint blaming anybody though it may sound like I am but Im just giving my opinion.

Nonetheless I did have fun during the dinner and I have to congratulate the planning committee and all involved for a dinner that was, I wont say well executed but.... ermmm executed? Im trying my best to give compliments. Until my next post
