Closet Nerd

Thank God it's Friday again, I can go out (guilt-freely) and drown my sorrow. Well, it's not that bad, just that I was feeling completely knackered for the whole week, did not even have the energy to blog. With my submission today (I've postponed it to Monday, extension-queen in action again) and all the mid-week drinking, my mind won't forgive me if I don't allow myself to party hard at least for a night this weekend.

"you're a big time nerd"
Dixon
"what's happening to you?" Lam

Everyone was shocked to hear that I locked myself up in the State Library to work on my assignment yesterday. Yes, I've to admit that this is the first time in my 25 years that I've voluntarily spend time in the library. I wouldn't be if it wasn't a day before my submission; I wouldn't be if I am not such a loser when it comes to distractions; I wouldn't be if my ability to concentrate and to sit still are that bad at home.

I'm really glad that I went to the library, it was very productive, I had done so much. I suspect I could be the closet nerd!

At the same time, I was very proud of myself for being able to turn down Dix & Lam's invitation to party and drink with them, on a Friday's eve, this is rare. Other than drinking, I was able to say 'no' to Di's invite to go shopping.

It was a good environment to study, despite it being so depressing. Don't ask me why it was depressing, it just was. Thank God there were another two depressing kids around me who makes me feel that I wasn't alone, hiakss... And I reckon I might be able to shed some pounds if I'm to set the library as my new hangout joint.

I'm finally going to get my nails done later in the evening, before heading to Auski to see if I can afford some ski gear. And my 90 minutes massage tomorrow, can't wait. My whole body is aching, I need my massage, badly badly badly...

Hi Deisy, I'm doing Master of Arts, double major in Public Relations & Professional Writing. Looking for a part-time job at the same time, any connections?

I had my massage on Saturday, looking forward to the next one which can't be too soon (no money).

Self-indulgences are the best things in life!

Wow... double major.

I have done my MBA 2.5 years ago, part time, while working. That kinda life, look back also can shiver - no life, no holiday, just full of library trips, class trips, exam trips!!! But the feeling of accomplishment after that is over-whelming!!!!:) And suddenly you feel u have lots of time on your hand over the weekend that you don't know what should you do with it. HAHAHA...

OK OK.. u not there yet... but hey, you will be there soon!!! Good luck!

And nope, I did not earn more money after MBA. Damn it.

You're a smart cookie, MBA! Work and study *applause*

All the free time you get now is your real reward for your hardwork, I love it love it love it. My favourite moment is to get up in the morning, don't know what to do for that day, syiok!
