Saying many goodbyes.
In the past week, so many people have been flying off to US - so many that I'm starting to lose track of all of them already.
Estelle flew off to Columbia on Tuesday. I forgot to say bye! Grr.
There was my darling sheila who flew off to Brown on Wednesday morning. Very unfortunately, I simply couldn't crawl out of bed to send her off at Changi that day because cheerleading from the day before wrecked havoc on my body. I overslept to the point where I even missed my MA class on Wed. Fantastic. That was fine though, but I reallyreallyREALLY felt so bad about not sending her off. The postcard and little trinket I prepared to give her's still sitting around on my ledge glaring accusingly at me.
I know, I know. I'm such a horrible friend.
At least I got to meet her on Monday before she flew. In typical taitai-esque fashion, we decided to meet up for high tea, with mikail and zhuanghui in tow.
If you're reading this, so sorry babe! :( Maybe I should post your stuff over.
Saturday was valerie's turn to head off to Upenn in the morning. Having learnt my lesson this time, I decided to not sleep at all so at least I could be sure that I'll be able to make it to the airport in time. Well, I was (obviously) successful, though very much tired and sleep-deprived.
Engsiang also flew off to Brown, on the same flight as val. Damn, I should have possessed more foresight to pass him sheil's stuff since they'd be in the same school.
Then this morning, it was mikail's and mingjing's turns - to Brown and Upenn respectively. Is it my imagination, or are a lot of people going to the two afore-mentioned schools this year...?
First, the UVA people. Then Berkeley. Followed by Columbia, Brown & Upenn this week. Next'll be the Dartmouth and Chicago people, then that should be all for the US dude(ttes). I think I'm starting to confuse/forget who's flying to where on what day. Either that or I'm just tired with all these goodbyes.
Sadly, it's just the beginning of what's to come. (cue: the mad rush of UK-bound friends)
