Resurface


I'm back up. 

Alive, of sorts. Hello, hello, hello again. I have finished my foundation year! We'll leave the nostalgia to never. Let's small talk a little. I have missed rambling. I'm starting to realize that it's very inherent to my personality. Twice I was explaining something to two separate friends and they listened till I was done, then they told me that they actually already knew. I was like, "Dude why did you let me explain the whole damn thing then??!!?" and they were like, "But you looked so happy and enthusiastic explaining, we didn't want to interrupt you." I didn't know what to say to them. I kind of just stared at them in defeat. Now I'm oddly cautious about getting too into talking about something. ... don't want to look too enthusiastic. 

But I am enthusiastic; I'm enthusiastic about too many things. I feel like it makes them seem not very important because I enthuse about everything but let me just say here right now, that everything I enthuse about is very important to me (however small and trivial it may be). So... I changed my hair colour! Again! I was going to a very ashy grey but then at the salon they were saying about how I'd have to bleach my entire head and the last time I bleached my hair it was a disaster and my hair felt like rafia string. It is not an experience I want to relive. There was much deliberation and a bit of arguing at the salon, all in good fun. The stylists are my friends so, all was good. I don't think it came out as grey as I intended it to be, but I'm happy with it. So is Ryan, I think. I know he's developed an unconscious fear of me doing wild things to my hair. I've done it before so I guess it makes sense that he thinks I would do it again. 

Preparing for ADM FOC 2015 has been a huge rollercoaster ride. If anyone reading this is being enrolled this year, you guys better join camp. My literal sweat and metaphorical blood has been shed for this. It will be an awesome camp I promise! To those who aren't coming in and are gleeful spectators, I will post pictures of camp after it is over. Camp is 12-17 July, so look out for it. 

In other news about school, I just moved out of Hall. It was a maddening experience. I did not enjoy it. I never realized how much stuff I had in hall until 3 hours before I had to move out. Let me just say now, Hall 8 (my hall) has a gross amount of stairs. The whole architecture of it makes no sense and level two is not actually level two. Basically lugging my shit down endless flights of stairs was not fun and if I have to stay in hall again next year, I'm bringing as little as possible with me. It truly is a frightening thing. 

I will now add a bunch of photos to sum up the time I was an absentee mother to this blog. 






Err.. I realize I don't have enough photos to make a bunch (sweats nervously) 
Anyway, I've added new links on the top right; I'm more active on those.

Also,


Ok bye now.

Threes



I'm here to tell everyone that I repent and beg for forgiveness. When I was sixteen and obsessed with blogging and reading blogs, I used to belittle uni. At the back of my mind, I'm always like, how much time does blogging take? When the blogs I read go on hiatus because of uni, I got sad. 

But now, I repent. 

University is like a big black vortex that sucks souls into oblivion. Free time? What is free time? Are we even free? Are the actions I take even free? Is everything pre-determined? Oh my god, am I Holbach?!?! Ok less mental breakdown, more coherence please. 

Everything seems easier after you've accomplished it but I really think last semester was way easier than this. This semester is like.. I feel like I'm that oblivious deer taking an early morning stroll on the road and that there's a truck turning a corner. Hasn't hit me yet, but I know it's coming. I just got slapped with two new essay assignments on top of everything else I'm juggling. I should be a professional juggler - only metaphorically of course, can't juggle. I just finished two mid-terms last week. The first was Philosophy, I was somewhat prepared for that but I've come to realize, most alarmingly, that I basically can't spell without technology. I'm so grossly reliant, I need to go for remedial classes on how to spell. I can hear my secondary school tutor breathing down my neck when I write. I hear you, Ms Tan, please don't kill me Ms Tan. 

The other mid-term was art history and nothing I studied came out. I know most people panic in situations like these but I burst out laughing. It was freaking hilarious, I stared at the artefact they chose and knew literally nothing about it. So I did what any normal person would do, I bs-ed my way through. There are people carved on the relief. They are holding instruments. ...MUST BE A FESTIVAL (read in my first droning then over-enthusiastic voice).

It is now recess week. I'm basically trying to rush through everything and make sure I don't fail at life. Kidding, I'm also watching shows and uh oh blogging. I get distracted by nothing. Yesterday I spent an entire hour trying to kill a mosquito with an electric fly bat. In case you were wondering, yes, I did kill it and the electric spark on the bat was immensely satisfying. 

I have a proposal to right(write) with (currently) nothing to propose and a very important project to execute tomorrow. Please pray for me. 

Good bye.
Until I next doggy-paddle up to the surface that is my social life.

I scanned my face for a project but I didn't use these images the way I thought I would.
It was still pretty fun though.

Just checking in again, making sure all's well and good. 
Been spending quite a large portion of my life watercoloring, 
will update soon with some pieces.
