Cousin’s 21st Birthday

My cousin Andy reached the milestone age of 21 on the 29th of Dec.

He’s only half a year older than me, so i take comfort in knowing that he will always reach the milestones first! LOL. But it reminds me that adulthood is creeping up on all of us (as in me and my cousins), i will turn 21 in June and then my twin cousins will be turning 21 a month after in July! Its scary to think about becoming an adult officially, its like in a blink of an eye we’ve all grown up so much, it feels like only yesterday that we were playing make-believe, ‘camping out’ in tents in the living room, running around, hiding in wardrobes, having bb gun wars, riding out bikes to the park etc.

I still feel like such a child, but with the new year creeping upon us i feel like maybe i should start thinking about my responsibilities? It’s like i’ve managed to live the first 20 years of my life unscathed by any real responsibilities. I think it will be scary when the day comes, it must be like stepping into a new land or something but i’m sure i’ll be able to cope, i hope so anyways.

But yeah, my cousin turned 21 and my aunt hosted a hot pot party at their takeaway, everyone on the maternal side was there. It was a fun occasion and at the end my aunt broke out a massive bottle of cava, some of the parents got a bit tipsy and there was a lot of laughter. I just love family gatherings like this, its so warm and full of laughter. Actually i think i’m a really family-orientated person. Sometimes i think it actually beats being with friends, but that might just be due to the fact that so many people have let me down.

But yeah at the end of the night as i was leaving, my little cousin hugged me goodbye, she thought she wasn’t going to see me again the next few days since she was leaving to go back to Malaysia on the 31st and started to burst into tears. It was so sweet. but she actually cries all the time at these kind of situations lol, so sometimes it seems like she’s just a little bit too over-emotional, and it’s kinda amazing how she can turn on the tears instantaneously, it’s like the chinese phrase 唔做戲真係嘥哂呀! lol

Reading Week

So its my reading week, and i presume i’m actually meant to do work / “reading” during this time. For the past two years of my uni life i went home for the whole of reading week and never did anything lol, but then again i don’t recollect having any pressing deadlines back in first or second year during that time. Anyways, this reading week is no exception as i went back home on Friday night for a long weekend and also to attend my friend’s 17th birthday party.

I came back to campus on Tuesday night since i have to do that recruitment thing on Thursdays and also i thought i’d actually try and get some work done since my essay is due next Thursday! Eek! But yeah so far i haven’t really done much >.<. On wednesday i did a little bit of reading for the essay and wrote a few things down but then later that night i went over to my friend’s flat for dinner since it was our friend’s 21st birthday and then we all headed to Liquid for the night. It was really fun, just dancing away since i haven’t been clubbing in ages now. But after taking a shot one of my guy friends threw up and he ran all the way outside and threw up some more >.<. He was seen by two security guards and so they wouldn’t let him back inside, so our clubbing night ended at 12:30! Just slightly after an hour we arrived. But it was ok we headed back to my friend’s flat and played games and chatted for ages, and ended up playing Bomberman on her Wii until 4am! haha So yeah at 4am i was like “Oh crap, i need to get going” since i had to wake up at 8am to go recruiting.

So when i got back to my own room, i decided to check my email before sleeping. My supervisor sent me an email saying that she couldn’t go to the recruitment thing cos she fell and cracked her ribs and fractured her elbow, at which point i was just really unimpressed because the day before the girl who was meant to come recruiting with me sent me an email saying she couldn’t go because she had to do training in the morning and the guy we were working with had gone back to spain for reading week so i had to recruit all by myself this morning. Though the upside was that i could give myself a little bit of extra time in bed xD.

So yeah its been another exhausting Thursday, but the night is still young (yes i do realise its nearly 2am atm but meh, its still early for me =P) so i’m gonna try and type up the notes i have into an actual essay!  Hopefully i will get most of it done by the weekend so i wont be panicking over it on Wednesday night.
