Christmas lights are up around town and this can only mean one thing: that I am on the verge of falling back into nasty habits of gobbling down double beef burgers (or any other food within my vicinity) with a bottle of teh c peng or milo peng in my other hand on a daily basis. There is always a direct correlation between the amount of food I shove in my face and my seemingly unending pile of materials to study in view of the impending finals. Today was a new record; I successfully restrained myself from leaving my desk to bury my face in burgers at the cafeteria. Food isn't the only indicator though, the less hair I have in my face or the higher the ponytail or bun, the more stressed out I feel at that point of time.
Meanwhile, a list of things I have been missing out in life which I am slowly catching up with: Doctor Who, books and discovering new indie artistes (do not assume that I am a hipster). I feel a sense of gratification in reconnecting with these things because the whole month felt rather like a desperate wasteland and no matter how far I trod, I see no end in sight (probably exaggerating the lack of media in my life). I guess that the older we grow, the more we seek familiarity, something of the past to hang on to so that we don't lose too much of ourselves.
I can't say that this month has been uneventful though, in fact, I think this semester is one of the most eventful ones I've had in quite awhile. More adventures to come!
