( thorn among the roses, on Luqman's birthday ^^,
with all the Vickery gals and Hsiu Li)
(during our first few days in perth, we explored the city together-gether ^^)
^^ I made the decision to continue staying in Vickery House for next year's study.
For the past few days, i have been in confused state- whether to move out with Janice, Jaclyn, and 3 other gals whom i am not very close with; or to continue staying in Vickery. Me and Jac went to have a look at the house, and it was in very good condition. It was very well furnished. The rooms are bigger and each has their own bar fridge, bigger wardrobe and cleaner bathroom. It was indeed very tempting for us to move out from Vickery. Besides, the house is located quite near to school, within walking distance, which is another bonus.
Jac and i consulted a few elder friends for advices and comments. Those advices were appreciated a lot. But the more advice we listen to, the more confused we got. There were so many different opinions which each of them has their own sense and weight. I got tired judging the opinions when it comes to deciding whether it is wise to move out. Besides, it was exam period and i couldnt be bothered anymore after few days of non-stop confusion.
Both options has their own pros and cons. Yesterday, when i decided to move out with Jac, i was feeling sad. Sad to leave vickery. Sad to leave the community life that i've got used to for the past 2.5years. sobz sobz. Yeefang came over and gave me hugs! she said she felt commited to take care of me emotionally, SWEET ok..!!! muachh...!!!
I feel sad that we would not be able to walk to each others' units at the odd hours of the day, for random purpose. Whenever i cooked new stuff, yeefang in all her might and courage, braved through the night to come to our house and tasted my food. i will miss that. Ah jia they all bought new shirts from Carousel and i went over to their place to see them posed in their new shirts while talking nonsense. i will miss that. Luqman felt pek chek and came to our house to have some silly chat while discussing studies. i will miss that too. Siaw tze, my big sister, always give me her hand to hold as i walked back from uni with her. i definitely miss tha too! Yijia, the one always cracking jokes whenever she came to our unit. i miss that. Ling weng and michelle came often, just dropping by with no purpose, saying a sweet hello and sometimes having girls talk in my room. oh, how i am going to miss that much. And hsiu li that never fail to join us for every midnight birthday celebration for all the Vickery girls and Luqman's birthday too!
on top of that, i am going to miss the Sunday morning walk to church with yeefang, ah jia, dayong, derek, jonjon and george! miss having visitors to unit 13- like Kimberly, Jimmy, Pauline and Kaiting jie. oh gosh, there are so many things i will miss =<...
yaya, i know, ppl say "life moves on".. we cant be stagnant, we gotta make new friends. but i realize next year, i am not ready yet to let go all of these. i am not ready to let go this bunch of great friends. of course, it's not like i am moving to another country and we're not going to see each other anymore. But moving to another house in another place is equivalent to saying goodbye to all the daily routines that we did together. i know i am not ready for a shift next year. Maybe only by the end of next year, we will move on. End of next year.
Finally, i decided to re-consider my decision. I changed my decision after another discussion with Jaclyn during dinner. yes, i changed my decision!!! and i couldnt be more glad after that!! ^^ sms-ed the gals and told them my new and final decision. Later, ah jia sms-ed saying "aaahh, love u!!! muaccks!!!" . well, i love u guys too, hihi...!!
after dinner i came into my room, i had no idea why i had the urge to take out the CA shirt from cupboard. the shirt has been there for quite some time, and i never take it out just to have a look. Tonight i did. And when i turned the shirt over, i saw one verse at the back of the shirt.
