Of monkeys and squirrels
Blimey, it’s been a long time. And wow, just look at how thick the undergrowth around here is. And the trees! THE TREES!! They’re so goddamned tall! Oh my, was that a monkey that just swung past me..? Oh no, might be a squirrel, or whatever. Sigh, lots of land-clearing to do around here now.. Now where did I put my parang..
Seriously though, life has been so darn busy. Posts per month over here are down to one and I’ve just got the latest website stats report emailed to my inbox, rather than ‘marking it as read’ as I always do, today I chose to actually read it and guess what, the average pageloads for the past week are at an ever-low number of.. 1. Yes, one. ONE?! That means no one’s reading! Talk about privacy! Geez. But honestly though, no hard feelings there, cos I’ve only got myself to blame for neglecting this blog of mine.
I would admit though, now, that lack of motivation was one of the reasons in neglecting posting here, rather than using exams as an excuse. And of course, laziness. But I wouldn’t rule out the exam factor though, I’ve just crawled through three weeks of my first semester exams which I don’t even wanna talk about it now. But even so, the inactivity around here started well before that. Ah well, let bygones be bygones. So let’s just drop it.
So, now on to the good stuff that has happened all this while I’m not here. My relatives from the peninsula just recently came over here for a week and had some fun here before heading back 10 days ago. Though I couldn’t join them around as I was in the middle of my semester exams. Talk about brilliant timing.. Anyway, it was fun and I got to taste some good west-malaysian food cooked by my aunts I usually get to taste only once a year, or two. And after that we had to get used to the sudden silence that enveloped our home in the wake of their absence.
Well, school’s been pretty good. I’ve been involved in the launching event of the special Teacher’s day assembly recently. Me and wying made a pretty good team in planning and preparing the event, which turned out pretty good.
Also, my entry for the English essay competition was finally submitted for a place in the school magazine! This is something worth celebrating for, really, cos my essays, no matter how good they are, and I KNOW they’re good, just never make it in there all these years. And this year being my last year, I was almost determined I would get a place. And so have I. Yay! It was a pity though, that I didn’t win the essay competition but hey, whos complaining?
Gee, I could go on and on but I really have to stop here. There are just so many stuff to post but i’ll leave those for a another day, so check back! And did I mention we’re having school holidays now?
