I'm the kinda girl who likes to bla bla....

Helloooooo…. It’s good to be able to write something today. So much has happened since I was away from this blogging desk. Well, so much in my non-eventful life anyway.

My last post was like last Monday. I had been so caught up in work that I seriously didn’t even have time to go to the washroom. It’s like everything was stuck in my head until it became like an overcrowded notice board and things kept being added to my mind and yet nothing was taken out and everything just wanted to spill out and so I had to regurgitate everything down to paper. That gave my mind some peace as well as put things into perspective, as when every little detail was on paper, work seemed at lot more manageable.

Open Day came and went. All the arrangements, all the decisions made, all the misunderstanding, all the crazy emails going back and forth, all of it came together on that one day last Saturday. The culmination of it all was actually a very enjoyable event. Yes, even though I had to work on a Saturday. I would be lying through my teeth if I said I didn’t enjoy it. What’s not to enjoy? We get to sit in a booth and meet parents and prospective students. We didn’t have that many tasks at hand and we were able to mingle with the other staff of the University. It was more like a fun social event for me. I talked to many people whom I only saw once in a blue moon. We exchanged news and stories. We compared notes from the different faculty staff. We had fun.

On Sunday, my parents-in-law treated hubby and I, as well as sis-in-law to Puteri Gunung Ledang The Musical. It was playing to a full house at Istana Budaya. I saw that the tickets for all the shows were all sold out. I enjoyed the whole performance. I thought they all did a good job, and it’s definitely a boost for Malaysian theatre.

I took Monday off from work. I had to go to the hospital to get my supply of medicines. I thought I had had enough to last me till next Wednesday, which is when I’ll be seeing my doctor, but my last antibiotic tablet was only till Sunday night.

Oh, I’m also happy to say that I bought two books from Borders, the Curve last Saturday – Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld and I Am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe. So right now I’m reading Prep. I’m enjoying it a lot. Can’t wait to go home and continue reading it tonight. For the past two nights I’ve been sleeping at midnight just so I could get at least two chapters done. Wanted to buy more books, but the financial situation didn’t allow it. Heh…

Alrighty then, it’s time to go do some more work, seeing that I’ve taken quite some time to write this. It’s good to be click-clacking on the keyboard again…. Aaaaaaahhhhh………..
