Well, I'm in the midst of slaving away on my Milton paper... =__=;; --so it's time for a quick update!! ^^;;;
I had just woken from a short nap tonight at around 10pm, feeling oddly bereft. I still can't remember what I was dreaming about, but waking to the stillness of dorms full of students locked away in their rooms frantically doing all their weekend homework left me with this somewhat lonely feeling. Kemmy still isn't back from her weekend at Vanderbilt either, so I didn't even have her bustle and energy to fill our room up. Just as I was coming back from the bathroom from washing my face, I heard my phone ringing. It was my dad, who just called for no reason. It was his day off today, he said, but he'd spent it fixing a car for his brother and had just gotten back, all tired and gritty from the day. It was so nice to hear him talk about what he was up to (he's taking a one-month class on making digital movies! ^^ He even got a perfect score on his first quiz!! <3 <3 <3). We had a nice chat and it was really good to hear the reassurance of his voice after that weird dream but... man, I feel so guilty. It's been a crammed and crazy month, and between this activity and that meeting and this party and that paper and whatever else, I hadn't called home in perhaps three weeks. Still, my dad knew just when to call when I wanted to hear someone's voice. I'm such a sucky daughter... it makes me feel all the more useless and ungrateful whenever my parents show how much they care about me and I'm so wrapped up in my own life and pursuing whatever I selfishly want to, however far away it takes me from them. My sis and I are one of the few comforts they have these days, and I just keep running off to chase one dream after another. =__= Gaah, sorry for the gloom and ranting... it's that time of the month and emotions come spilling out. Baring my soul here is the best way I can ease the guilt so I can pull myself back together to do all the five million things I'm supposed to do-- so, sorry you guys have to listen to my whining. -__-;;
Well, on a lighter note, last night was a lot of fun. ^^ Faizah, Dave, Jie, Dom, Min (THE Min--the "mean, old" (j/k) boss of the CAs Min!), Zoe, Jason, and I took Jeanny-chan out to MISO for her birthday! ^^ Actually, her bday was on Thursday, but this being the time of year it is (read: finals approaching, and the BlueJAY coming out on Friday morning in time for April Fools' Day ^^), we decided to postpone till Saturday. So I skipped my usual Anime Society screening after work and we all headed over in the driving rain to MISO. God that Sex on the Beach futomaki roll is AMAZING~~ It's got tempura shrimp on the inside and is topped with deliciously-marinated unagi (eel), a few yummy sauces and roe, and it's just the most winning combination ever! I just got that one roll with some miso soup and it was so filling! Every bite was a (ooey-gooey, oh-so-good) dream~~ *drool* Jie made fun of me for getting a shirley temple (hey, they're pretty good at MISO, and I've got bad memories of their alcoholic drinks :(), but maa, their martinis are too expensive. And I don't like beer, not even Japanese beer. >.< Still, we had a great time~ I hadn't seen most of them much these past few weeks, what with senior papers being due and all. MISO seems like designated birthday restaurant (hey, if you're gonna get treated for your big day, you may as well choose a nice place!)~ so many nice memories of friends toasting one another, laughing, making old jokes, sampling weird alcoholic beverages, dodging Jie's omnipresent camera, and so on all have that poshly-dim, pseudo-mod/Asian setting as its background. ^^ It's such a nice thing to have friends that you've become so close to, ne? More and more, I wish this year wouldn't end. Who knows when next we'll all be able to share a sashimi plate at MISO ne?
Haha, it all comes back to "Days" again, ne? That's so the theme song of my "Bright College Years." ^^
"Onaji toki wa ima wa ikiteru kiseki ga sugoku ureshii kara ne~ Tsugi au hi mo kitto ne, isshou ni waratte iyou ne?"
("I'm so, so happy for this miracle of being here at the same time you are. Next time we meet, for sure, let's laugh together again, okay?"...Gah, it sounds a lot better in Japanese... ^^;; )
