Today is the day I'm going to pay tribute to the things I've used to make my life easier here, or rather, the things I need to survive. And also things that I don't have a choice to use.
Many things or items have come and go, but these are the things that stayed with me, and rot with me for six years.
1. Homemade bedsheet and comforter
I've been using the same one since day one.
I may have over-used it. But I don't care. I was miserable and missing home so much, this is the one thing that is close to being home. Plus my mother made it for me.
2. Old school radio
This thing was around probably before I was born. I could sell this on Ebay and pass it off as a vintage collector's item. Plus it runs on those giganto balls batteries if not using the electric power.
The ultimate college food. Good when you're hungry in the middle of night, better when you're sick of eating out, and best when you realised that buying 5 pairs of shoes in one go is a bad, bad idea. But oh, bad for your health. Remind me to do a medical check up.
I've tried numerous cocoa based drinks for the past 6 years, but nothing could ever come close to Milo. Yeah, the Cadburry hot chocolate 3 in 1 is tasty, but try drinking that for 6 years. You just can't get sick of Milo. I need to figure out what they put in there.
5. Lexus biscuits
I swear to God, I have eaten these biscuits EVERY MORNING for SIX YEARS. There were other biscuits, but like Milo, I never get sick of them. I believe the amount of biscuits that I have eaten could bill a whole new Munchy factory. I wanna thank Jess for sharing her cheese flavoured Lexus to me when we first move in to our new room when I was in IPGaya 6 years ago. Who knew it'd be my breakfast till today.
6. Hostel bathroom/toilet
I didn't know how I survived this. But I did. For six damn years. You just get used pooping squatting down. You just get used to it.
I'd like to include my work table in my list too, even though I've only been using it for a year. Although it has only been a year, it served me good.
It's where I do my work, eat, go online and watch my TV shows.
Dinosaurs are way rad than pink dolphins and ABCs, okay?
If you remember this post you'd know why I bought it even though I have a huge table of my own.
It has served me real good.
See the amount of injury it sustained during my teaching practice? It was a brave, brave soldier.
And above all, it's my last weekend here. The hole that I've been staying most of my life after school.
Though I've been waiting for this day since the first day I came here, some part of me just want time to stop.
I'm just not ready to not be a student anymore.
