Does anyone even still read this? I highly doubt so. I think even my mom, who happens to be my number one stalker, doesn't even come here anymore. Unless, of course, I make a public announcement on Facebook/Twitter about my return to the blogosphere. Which, I must warn you, will be brief, due to the my A levels beginning in a week.
I do apologise for my absence here in the past two months though. Well, what can I say, we all know what the reason is. If it isn't school then it's other stuff like, I don't know, my social life maybe? Well if it's neither homework or friends then it's probably plain laziness.
But I guess, he is the main culprit. Blame him, blame him!
Can you believe we're almost halfway through with the year? It still hasn't entirely hit me that I am starting university in September. University. Oh, the sound of it.
Shopping for May Ball stuff with Alison and Jaycee today just sort of gave me a reality kick. May Ball is just a week away! As much as I am excited for it, I really don't want it to come, because.. well, my exams begin two days later. I know, I know, a terrible weekend to have a prom, but hey, I didn't choose the date. Which explains why a lot of the Lower Sixth aren't coming, because their first paper (which, I am resitting for) begins on Monday.
But, hell no, I ain't missing my prom. I was considering it though, until Zainab said that I wouldn't be able to study if I stayed home anyway because my mind will be at the May Ball. Good enough an excuse, I suppose.
My exams aren't the only reason I'm not excited about May Ball coming up so soon. This will be one of our last Abbey events together. Leaving Abbey is going to be bittersweet, as much as I was reluctant to come here initally. The bunch of friends I have here, they're as good as family. Sure we will keep in touch, we will have gatherings, but, it won't be the same anymore.
But still. May Ball! Pretty stoked about it. I volunteered to be part of the committee, though I hardly do shit, other that publicising it and making announcements regarding the May Ball on Facebook. And persuade people to come. Rose has been doing most of the work, making arrangements with the hotel rep, getting decorations, the logistics, basically. That unofficially makes her the head of the team, I suppose. Not that she doesn't deserve it. She's gaining too little credit for all her work.
Too much has happened since I last posted, stuff in school, and stuff outside school. One of it being me attending the Bersih rally in London last week. Where I met this freelance journalist who writes for the Malaysian Insider. We sent a couple of emails to each other, and she sent me this really inspiring article she wrote, which in turn, inspired me to blog again.
Behold, an inspiration. http://www.ukeconline.com/CEKU/if-you-can-do-what-you-love/
And I thought, hm, I actually do love writing, although I suck balls at it. Especially since I haven't written a proper essay in such a long time. But yeah, we'll see. Maybe during the summer, when I have a bit of free time, brush up my writing skills or something.
So Little Miss December, you have Miss Emily Ding, the freelance journalist I met, to thank for your resuscitation.
