allons-y!

It's French for let's go.

Studied with the best buddy yesterday in NTU for the first time! Felt a little bad that she’s been coming to Tembusu for the past 2 years so I thought it’s time to head to Pulau NTU. Which actually turned out to be way more conducive than I thought. Way better than Arts, anyway.

Was 30 minutes late though haha. I think that’s the latest I’ve been late to anything ever. Felt a little bad but then the best buddy went into makcik mode and shopped at NTUC so I guess it’s okay.

Actually studied in a carpark (with tables! and power points!) which I thought was a little odd but cool. Maximum usage of space. Also proud that we actually studied and wasn’t too distracted chatting away. Okay, we were distracted a little bit (discussing different moleskines; I really feel like getting one now. Also #selepascanggih HAHAHA) but it was the most productive I’ve been the entire week, I think. Also the food at NTU is so much more better than Arts omg. So many Halal (and non-spicy) choices! Also discovered the amazingness of Tartar sauce!!! The best buddy gave me an incredulous look that I never tried it before but oh well.

Felt slightly faint on the way back though. Which I totally don’t get cos it’s not like I skipped lunch again. I did eat a proper meal. I’d like to blame the MRT for its overcrowdedness but I think it’s just me being weak and all low blood pressure-y again. Actually felt like I wanted to faint while walking back from the bus stop to UTown but thank God I didn’t. That would be utterly embarassing.

Don’t be fooled by the photos, we really did study! (Love the last photo on the right; I think it describes our friendship beautifully) #bestbuddies

Finally figured out the rest of my study plan for the next 2 weeks! I foresee late nights and no life till May 7.
I am feeling motivated though which is a good thing. And there’s the study session with the best buddy (and maybe Amira…?) this week! Also, Spidey and X Men (FAIR TRADE hahaha) after finals are over!

The weather is being super awesome today (i.e. slight drizzle and cold winds) so I thought I’d take a walk (with my John Watson umbrella, of course) around the neighbourhood before meeting up with Adil and passing her the dress money.

And this is why the West is awesome. I actually call this The Best Street in the World in my head even though it has pretty much nothing but a road and really awesome trees. I love how the trees and its leaves pan out to nearly cover the whole street. I really love being in parks and nature in general. Maybe that’s why I love Scotland so much sigh. Next year, in shaa Allah.

Anyway, met up with Adil and she gave me a tight hug straight away aww. I love affectionate friends. And she gave my dress in a really pretty bag too! Chatted for a bit and it really is nice to find out that you’re still on the same wavelength as someone even though it’s been months since you last met.

Also, the dress is awesome omg. I love the material and how smooth it is. And it’s so flowyyy. I feel very me wearing it too so yay. Forgive the face, I was clearly super excited to wear it hahaha.

And now that I had pretty much a good start to my Sunday, I’m all ready to start today’s studying session. And if I get to finish what I’m planning to do today, I might even play a little Call of Duty. Need to blow off some steam by killing some (virtual) people.

Okay, I’m feeling much better now. What a difference a few hours can make seriously, subhanallah. (Speaking of seriously, reminded of the time when I was listening to the Goblet of Fire audiobook yesterday while getting lunch and there was a part where the narrator spoke “…said Sirius seriously.” OMG Rowling is such a troll hahaha.I literally snorted.)

Main reason why I’m feeling much like myself now is because my uterus/womb is behaving like regular organs again and not cramping. So yay. Also, surrounding myself with company was actually a good idea. Watched Survivor with the suitemates and it actually helped keep my mind of the cramps. Oh, and we discovered Fangy’s secret love for Gandalf hahaha! I bet we’ll take the mickey out of that one for weeks. Speaking of Fangy, she just gave me a “welfare pack” of her own which is basically crackers and sweets. Yay to gifts!

Finally done with my individual reflection for biomed too so now I can go to sleep feeling somewhat accomplished.

(Random note but the divergent ost is actually pretty good. Was listening to it while writing and I typed like a storm trooper.)

Song of the day. Feeling super irrational and annoyed at myself today (why cramps why) but thankfully this song still manages to calm me down somewhat.

Practically slept throughout the day. Watched some DW (The Stolen Earth/Journey’s End) but somehow I managed to sleep through part of it too. Woke up to the heartbreaking scenes, so thanks brain for that. Ugh, I just want to shake this ugh-ness off and be my normal self again. Doesn’t help that the headaches seem to be back :/

Finally got our formal dinner photos! I love how everyone looks really nice in it. Even Llama is smiling! ^^

This week has been really good to me so far. I’m naturally a happy person but somehow, I’m even happier this week alhamdulillah. Even though I don’t really know why haha.

Things that Made Me Happier This Week:

1. The mum surprising me with red bean buns just when I was leaving for the week. I might have started tearing on the spot if I wasn’t already super late for school (as usual).

2. Actually making it to school on time on Monday.

3. Jacq’s Week 13 snack treat! I like little gifts from friends hehe.image

4. Pranking Naz with the cups and the water! Have got to say, I thought he might be annoyed or peeved but he’s actually game about it which is cool. Super fun to prepare though (sneaking into his room and the boys toilet for the water runs) and we’re so detail-oriented placing cups literally everywhere.

5. This cat video omg. THE ADORABLENESS I CAN’T.

6. Last Jap prof lecture on Tuesday. Okay, this is more of a bittersweet thing but I fully enjoyed his class this sem (especially his tutorials) and it’s nice to see things go full circle (proper use of the term?) and see it all wrapped up. He also gave a LOT of clues what’s going to appear during finals hehehe. Also managed to take a photo of him doing what he does during lecture (like a stalker haha)

6. Last formal dinner yesterday! Even though the food turned out to be bad (lamb, I can’t take lamb), so bad that I had to take Vegetarian, it was still a pretty fun thing. I like wearing my red dress and my owl necklace and my Legolas ring (yes, that’s what I’m calling it). Oh and the shoes too, I guess (the best buddy won’t let me off if I don’t mention shoes at some point hahaha). Took loads of photos (for my standard) even the photobooth ones but we can’t seem to find any copies of it anywhere today? Either they didn’t print it (WHY) or STALKERS IN THE HOUSE. Hahaha okay being melodramatic with the last point but you catch my drift. I really wanted a copy to paste it on my Wall of Stuff at home next sem but sigh. Feel a little sad that we’re graduating from Tembusu in a few weeks too but oh well. I don’t want to focus on the negatives :)

7. Fangirl-ing with Yun Wei about TFIOS and Paper Towns and FTP. It’s always good to have a music/books buddy that you both can get excited over the same kind of stuff.

8. Being really productive this morning. Done with the group report and I’m hoping to finish the individual reflection thing before I sleep tonight so I can really say goodbye to biomed. I won’t miss your boringness.

9. And as of right now, I haven’t had a headache this week! It seriously is a miracle. I know it’s only Wednesday but usually I’d already have one or two that cripples me. Although I did wake up choking at 2am last night, for some weird reason.
