I was at Great World with my mom earlier on, during the break I had between Comparative Criminal Law and Infocoms. I went into Esprit out of boredom, and because my mom was off somewhere looking at clothes, and I randomly saw this gorgeous black dress that was going for $49.90 when its original price was like $119.90 or something. Naturally I tried it on and it looked even better on me. Naturally I had to buy it even though it's a cocktail dress-y thingy and I have absolutely no occasion to wear it. And after more discounts and whatever else, my mom paid only $36 for it.
I am very very very super duper happy with my dress. :) So happy that I feel inclined to put a smiley face which, as a general rule, I don't do. Bwahaha. Of course, not having any occasion to wear it is a problem, but I'm sure that can (somehow) sort itself out.
He's talking about COPIF now and you know I haven't the slightest idea what it stands for. I hate acronyms. How amazing is it, really, that I remember Arabic words from Islamic Law much better than I remember what these seemingly random letters stand for?
Now we're on to the TCC. I looked up at the slide and saw: Code of Practice for Competition. The first thing that sprang to mind when I heard 'TCC'? The Coffee Connoisseur.
I'm so in love with my Esprit dress. :) :) And it's Esprit Collection. You know, notoriously expensive stuff? Okay, I exaggerate, but I usually don't bother looking at Esprit Collection clothes because I have, like, absolutely no money, so getting an Esprit Collection dress for $36 is A FUCKING STEAL, YO. Major happiness!
I had a nice chat with Lavan at the Year 3 tables after Comparative Crim. We both noted, with some wistfulness, that this semester feels pretty empty, especially compared to last semester. Our point of reference? The Year 3 tables. Lavan said that the tables used to be clustered with significantly more people last semester, whereas now it seems like you'd be a lucky to see a familiar face there. And it's true, you know. Today's Thursday, right? Throughout the entire week I think the person I talked to most was, like, Kenneth, and only because (like I told him) he's this reliable pillar of constancy on whom I could always count to be around, because he's always around. But with so many people - and by 'people' of course I mean only my friends - gone this semester, it really does feel like no one is around anymore.
Oh well, like I always say though, times flies really, really quickly. It's already nearing the end of the second week of school and I feel like school has just started. Which it has, but I feel like school's just started yesterday. I have no idea what I've done so far. It's been a hazy blur of going to school, having night classes every day, and watching American Idol. Sad, isn't it?
I realised that I have two weeks to study for the Chinese exam, which is like, 50%, and it's, like, Chinese, and it's not really law at all. How pressurising. But my Chinese really isn't as good as I think it is. In fact, I think it's exponentially worse than I think it is. I need to watch more Taiwanese news! I can't string together a slightly-more-than-basic sentence in Chinese without pausing to think and eventually give up and use English substitutes. I suck.
Simultaneously I've been trying to speak Hokkien and trust me when I say that the result is always, always hilariously disastrous. I think one day my parents will get sick of my constant butchering of the dialect and tell me to shut up. I really wouldn't be surprised.
I'm falling asleep. OMG still have forty minutes I wanna dieeeee.
