Prologue: Pre-semester break emptiness
So here is the end of week 8 of my 2nd semester of my first year of university life and I am officially having my semester break tomorrow. So far, I had approximately 74 lectures, completed 3 psychology lab journals writings, 3 biology reports, numerous quizzes and tests, 3 physiology laboratory work sheets, a biology essay, and 2 biotechnology essay. Assuming that I attended all lectures, I will have approximately 3 days time in the lecture hall, just listening to lectures given by the doctors and professors for this semester.
Here comes the semester break, and during the period before the break begins, somewhere deep inside me feels very empty. Maybe I want to have a more relax break, I want to have a longer vacation, I want to spend more time with family and friends, I want to finish my stuffs before I can relax myself, I want to see people I know in Monash everyday, say hi and smile to people...I will miss my friends and the craziness, even the break I am having is a short one.
Tell me I am crazy, but I don't have the 'holiday mood' yet. What are the reasons why ? I don't know.
I want to take a breather, I am tired, physically and mentally.
Last week I went to Dewan Filharmonik Petronas again to witness the sensational performance of Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra. They are playing the music from the cartoon and we knew, and we should know - The Looney Tunes from Warner Bros. That was definitely the best concert I ever saw so far. That night, I was completely stress-free. The concert hall itself is my 2rd 'Greenzone' this year, where Greenzone refers to place that gives no pressure or stress upon me.
The performance was a time machine, where it brought me back to my childhood memories where I spend most of my time sitting in front of the TV watching the poor Tom chasing the poor Jerry, or Bugs Bunny and his friends playing around with TNTs... It was just nice. If you think that a 20 years old guy watching a cartoon show is having early stage Alzheimer, then you are wrong. Cartoons are classic stuffs, and personally, I love classic stuffs (movie, music, actors, places, etc etc). Next time, when you questioning someone whether he/she is too old for cartoon, think again.
What cheered me up ? Let me think ...
1.I had TWO Snowflakes in a week, and there's a high chance of getting another one next week.
2.I had a splendid and delicious dish of spaghetti.
3.I had done all of my assignments that matters between week 8 and week 10.
4.I had many Oreos, Ramli burger and many cups of coffee in this 2 weeks time.
5.I am pleased that I made a decision without any regrets.
What doesn't ?
1.I had 3 days or more of severe sleep deprivation, each sleep lasted less than 4 hours.
2.Feel very guilty for failing my effort of boycotting the cafeteria at the last day before semester break
3.I WANT SOMETHING TOO BADLY.
4.I WANT SOMEONE TOO BADLY.
5.I say hi to people but they didn't see me, or acted like they didn't.
FIVE random FACTS ABOUT ME:
1. I don't bite people, just so you know.
2. I can be easily excited or amazed by small little things.
3. I am very random (decision, mood, conversation etc etc)
4. When I am silent, I am not emo or angry or sad or whatever, I am thinking of something.
5. I eat a lot but I never gain weight
This shall be it, enjoy your every minutes while you can during this short break, take a breather, because a steeper route is ahead.
