I suddenly realised that today marks the start of the later half of the year. After bumming half of the past six months away, it is finally July, and I am finally tired of slacking around and decided to get off my (increasingly bigger) ass to go teach tuition and work temporarily to amuse myself while waiting for school to start.
Been hovering on the verge of falling ill for the past week or so - scratchy throat, lots of phlegm, the occasional headache, and a fever that plays peekaboo with me. Nothing serious though - one moment I'm sick, the next moment I'm fine. That sort of thing.
Wednesday was a crazy shopping day with serene - both of us went slightly psycho with all our purchases. We went to mango, fox, far east...and I snagged 3 tops, a necklace, a skirt, 2 pairs of flipflops...and I think that's it. Serene bought 2 skirts for casual wear (finally! I am so proud of her - she's finally seen the light, minis are the way to go, not pants and jeans!), a pair of earrings, a scarf, a top, and err...what else? I lost track. Considering that we bought soooo many items, I think we spent relatively little money, so if you average it all out...I wasn't being a spendthrift! (yes, yes, lame attempt to console myself.)
Went back to RJC just now to grab my A level certificate and school magazine - and popped by the staffroom to chat a little with the teachers. Mr Khoo is still as affable as ever, and is honestly a joy to talk to. No idea why I used to find him boring and uninteresting (and sleeping through his classes).
It is rather weird how rumours get increasingly distorted as they're passed on. Sometimes they turn out so ludicrous, there isn't really anything left to do but to to laugh mirthfully at them.
I am terrible at making decisions, by the way. Ugh.
