Really Busy Week
So where have I been?
I bet most people would bank their answers on a).a) hibernating on my study table
b) playing Nintendo DS with friends
c) thinking about the distribution of contraceptives
d) all of the above
But no, it's actually d) all of the above.
First, the hibernating. I've gone through two or three sleepless nights since I last posted. I had to cut out almost everything else I was doing to catch up with school. Partly because schoolwork was really piling up; partly because of Elise.
She's the one in the middle.
It was worth it though to finally meet up with a good friend my sister and I haven't seen in eight years. The first words we all said were "We're so grown-up now!"
Which we were, considering that we were all tomboys last we saw each other. And now, well, Elise and I were wearing dresses.
We went out shopping --- which amused us since we never would have done so eight years back --- and just talked non-stop for a day and a half. In between eating and the few hours we slept, of course.
We also did a few of the same kiddie things though. We still had fun playing video games --- thus, the Nintendo DS --- and we still read a lot of books. It was a blast.
And now, she's back home half a world away. And we're all studying again.
Oh, and the contraceptives? That was a 26-page paper I was doing on reproductive health in the Philippines (read: one of the sleepless nights).
I guess that's about it for now. Until the next post (Sunday) then!
