It’s been a long week and i feel like i haven’t really had time to just sit down and relax, so much has happened in the past few days. So yeah i’m gonna break this post down into parts (also this post is kinda a rant, so i’m giving you prior warning now lol):
I had to wake up at 7.30am on thursday morning and get to a baby clinic at a children’s school in Hillingdon and had to catch the 8.35am bus, but it takes like 20mins to walk from my halls to the bus stop (as they are literally on the opposite sides of campus, so it was a trek!). Also at this point i’d like to say that tfl.org totally lied to me because it told me the bus journey would be at least a half hour long, i got there after 15 minutes which made me about 25 minutes too early. But one of the people i’m working with also got there early so at least i wasn’t hanging outside a kiddie’s school like a total perve lol. Oh i should mention that we were there to recruit babies to participate in our study for our final year university dissertation project. Basically we had to talk to the mothers and give out leaflets, cross our fingers and hope that some of them would call us and tell us that they would be interested in taking part.
After spending 2 hours doing that, we finally went back to campus and had about an hour for lunch before having to set out again to recruit more prticipants, this time it was at uxbridge health centre. The bus took 40 minutes to arrive at the bus stop, so i was freaking out about being late and when i got there the health cetre was freaking hard to find! There was more than one entrance and after being on the phone to one of the other students for what seemed like forever, i finally found my way there. I get there and our supervisor isnt even there yet (it was such a relief but i also felt kinda angry that she was late… ). When she finally got there she handed us a giant wad of paper which we had to fold into leaflet format,whilst she went to chat to one of the health centre people. After all of that it became clear that there wasn’t alot of infants in that day because it was half term and we were told to go home. SUCH A WASTE OF TIME! I was just so tired that day… but no rest for me just yet…
After a tiring morning/afternoon i also had to head to the airport. My good friend Victor was going back to HK for good =(. Me and my other friends headed over to his house and then we all took a taxi to the airport together. Wethen had dinner at the airport, the food wasn’t great but the company i had more than made up for it, we always have such laughs when we’re together and i’m really going to miss him. Though when i was at the airport i didnt really feel too sad i have no idea why though, maybe because in the last two weeks leading up to that point we had tried to meet up and do things together as much as possible, trying to make the most of the time he had left in the uk so i guess mentally i was already built up for him to leave us. But when we were leaving and he was inside the duty free area, he was texting us and he mentioned that knowing us has changed him for the better. Now only fellow Wicked fans would find this significant, but me and Victor are a bit obsessed with Wicked and i told him that when he leaves, the song “For Good” from Wicked the musical would remind me of him. I went home and listened to the song and it made me feel so sad that he had left, but hopefully i will see him again one day, i’m sure he’ll probably come visit us in the UK or i’ll go visit him in HK. Anyways, this song is dedicated to all my good friends out there:
Waoh that was a long post, anyways, nothing all that much noteworthy happened on friday apart from having a long day of lectures so i decided to go back home and recuperate for the weekend! I actually miss my own bed soooo much!
Hope everyone is having a great Halloween weekend =D
