Time for a breather. I just finished my last final exam (is that redundant???) for the sem this (err, yesterday) morning. Will have to pore over heaps of research papers today (and tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow, and the day after that). I really need to get my lit review and research proposal done by the 15th. Anyone in for an extra round of grace?
Well, since I’ll be reading and writing technical stuff for the next few days, I just thought I’d write out some “non-technical” random scribbles before the madness starts.
Non-technical Random Scribble #1.
My goodness. It’s 12:43 on my clock right now and I’m still awake. Ugh. Insomnia? Well, I’ve been “resting” for the most part of this day, so I guess that explains why I’m still awake at this hour (but when you think about it, I’m always up naman after midnight, even if I hadn’t spent much of the day resting. Ugh. Whatever.)
Resting. After my exam, I just sleeepptt. Read Donald Miller. Took another nap. Watched Twilight for the first time (hahaha, ooohhhkayyy.) Battled it out with Jaring afterwards. Proceeded to enter another battle after that one. With who, lah? With my new-found friend-slash-fiend, the washing machine! Can you believe that I’ve been staying in this dorm for more than four months and it was only yesterday afternoon that I discovered that my block actually had a coin-operated washing machine on the third floor? But all the instructions are in Bahasa Melayu!!! OMG lang.
I took another nap after my encounter with the malay washing machine. I was actually waiting for the drizzle outside to subside so that I could hang my clothes. But since it was still raining, I decided to sleep it off. Woke up to find that the pitter-pattering had not stopped. So I spent much of the night trying to transform my room into a “sampayan” area.
Craved for coffee, so I drank a cup of Nescafe 3-in-1.
So now it’s already 1:07 am. Now you know why I’m still up. Ugh. Must. Get. To. Sleep.
Non-technical Random Scribble #2.
Whew. It’s the 11th of November. My fifth monthsary in Malaysia is coming up in 13 days. I should be getting my passport (with my student visa – yey!) that day.
I have mixed emotions about this whole thing.
On one hand, I’m really so happy that I’ve already made it this far. (Rephrase: God has enabled me to come this far. Sigh. He knows all the “dark and stormy nights” that I had to go through. And the ones I’m going through. And — well, you get the idea). Being the melancholic person that I am, I have been counting the months since June 24. Pretty soon, I’ll be counting years. Time sure flies, doesn’t it?
Which leads me to the other hand. My sem’s already ending. December’s approaching. Now I’m thinking, “God, may nangyari ba sa mga unang buwan ko dito???”
Well, I had a sudden flashback of the Airport, Sungai Buloh, Keselamatan, Embassy, Jabatan Imigresen, and PPS episodes. Oh yeah. Madami rin namang nangyari. Like crazy, right?
Pero alam ni Lord that I wasn’t asking about that.
Lord, may nangyari ba?
Well, I believe something has. And there’s still the rest of November. The stage’s just being set.
Non-technical Random Scribble #3.
The stage is set. I had a great weekend, by the way. Getting lost in Taman Merdeka, getting lost in His embrace, feeling the Melaka sun once again… Sigh. I want more weekends like this! Minus the pagod, yeah, but that’s part of the package.
I want to write more about this!!! But friends, you’d have to wait for my pdf document. Hahaha. Dunno when I can get around to writing that, though.
Oh no. Which reminds me! I have a borang that needs submitting. And some minutes that I haven’t gotten around to writing yet.
I will not panic. I will not panic. I will not panic.
Kalmado lang, Mari.
Non-technical Random Scribble #4.
Hahaha. Anybody noticed how I’ve been mixing Malay words and Tagalog phrases in this little piece of writing? I’ve gone tri-lingual! Haha. BMTalgish? Boleh.
Let’s add some Ilokano kaya? Mabalin?
Non-technical Random Scribble #5.
Non-technical Random Scribble #6.
I have run out of non-technical random scribbles. I guess it’s my brain falling asleep.
I’m craving for something salty right now. Or something sweet. Like teh ais. Or bandung susu. Or Kapitan’s chendol.
Mmmm. Like, I can really go out and buy something from some Mamak Stall at this hour.
The craving would have to wait for tomorrow.
Right now, I guess I’ll be a good girl and catch some Zzzzs.
Enough of these non-technical random scribbles.
Bitin ba ang blog? Well anyway.
Good night, everyone.
