Recently someone told me that I'm a very private person, so sometimes people don't know a lot about me, or updates about me. It's never occurred to me before, but I suppose it can be true. Lately I feel like I can't post on Insta anymore, stuff are just too...well, private to freely splash for the whole world to see, or they're only superficial things like random pictures. There'll be a whole post on social media soon. Plus, I write quite a bit in my journal too. It's a coincidental fact that I do not like repeating things.
So I'm trying to be less private by sharing more things here, like: what's happening! This is what happened today. It was National Day celebrations in school, which is supposed to be a super hype, glorious party. It was (as last year) not that, but still quite lovely. I'm just glad that Jaimie and Chieh Ling came, because literally only 6 in total from 2MD5 turned up, and if that isn't just the most miserable turnout ever, I don't know what is. I kind of lost it and mad-texted the class chat, because by this point I really don't give a shit about them anymore. Except for a select few. (edit: that's really mean, thinking back to the birthday book from them on my birthday. ACK. My class makes me really confused.) So the 3 of us sat through the extremely short service and sang a few songs. For some reason, I enjoyed it more than last year even though last year I went the whole hog and stood up on the chairs like Pat Sum wanted everyone to, as if we're a clubhouse. It felt a little less pretentious, but enjoyable.
Then, I was due for lunch with Jia Xin and Janice. Janice's consult ended up being 2+ hours long, but JIa Xin and I just chatted for an hour or so and spent the next trying- keyword trying- to do work. I took a nap too. The weather was cooling and breezy. After Jan was done we went to Holland. She happened to have some Burpple discounts which was great because we managed to have sashimi bowls and Sunday Folks desert for a really good price! Honestly, food makes me so happy.
They do too of course. LOL. We talked and caught up with each other's lives, about school life, the latest goss & for some, current dilemmas. Better than the food was that I could be totally honest with them, and vice versa. In lieu with my pledge to be less private. If I stop to think about it, I am just grateful that God has placed some real wonderful friends whom I can trust and have my back. The MD5 bitches and precious OG girls, etc.
They are people who make me forget that I'm ugly. They make me feel not ugly. It sounds so silly, but from the bottom of my heart that's how I feel.
Got home, and went to the gym. It was kind of strange, because I actually was a bit tired and definitely lazy, but at the same time my body was craving the endorphins it KNEW it would get after the workout. Which has never happened before?! Well, I listened, and did a different, lighter set since I'm going to exercise with Em tomorrow. It was:
50 sit ups
'Problem' dance routine plank
Side note: the Imagine Dragons Revolve album is SO FREAKIN' GOOD. I love every single song on it. Totally going into my gym playlist.
This is pretty much a day in my diary. How do ya'll like it? Should I do more, or is it just a monologue? Always yours,
