Stay

Here I am again for another week's scribble about life in the UK.
I noticed that there are a few of my secondary school seniors around in the UK, like Germaine who is in Warwick, Amelia who is in Oxford and Spencer who is in Bristol.
And I think Spencer was standing in front of me when we boarded the plane for Dubai in KLIA.

And what does that have to do with today's post title?

Well, it's what I'm going to talk about next.
I've already gotten myself a printer, which only cost me around GRB31.49, which is 10% of the price because of the student discount.
Yup, even though it was out of stock on the site, I still managed to get it because I asked the staff for it.
But I don't know about it right now though, cause I went on Wednesday after Japanese class.

Yeah, about that class... It's boring.
Why? Because it's all about the basics, like point-blank, on the ground basics.
I already know how to read hiragana and katakana, so there's not point of me sticking around in beginners' right?
No, there is one important component that I just simply can't learn on my own- grammar.
Which is why I'm forced to crawl as slow as a slug for now when I can actually hop like a gazelle.
Speaking of which, Europeans and China people have a funny way of speaking Japanese.
They get all tongue-twisted and they mouth the words rather weirdly and can actually mess up 'hajimemashite'.
I'm glad that the lecturer is an actual Japanese though; her name is Ryoko and she was from Shizuoka.
The reason I said' WAS' is because she is already married and has since migrated here.
Oh well, let's just see how the whole thing goes.

My winamp is actually playing the whole OST of Bartender, which happens to be an anime.
Click HERE to find out more.
The soundtrack is rather soothing, and rather piano dominant.
This made me miss the electric piano I have at home.
But it also made me think of the future, in a way.
I mean, the life I might have here is somehow encased in those tracks.
Like coming home to an apartment that looks somewhat like the one House has (for those of you who watch House M.D would know).
A small kitchen, two rooms, a small den and a bathroom; quiant and cozy.
Coming back home from my shift at the hospital, fix up a quick dinner and then plopping myself onto the piano seat and start playing.
It's kinda like how my life is here right now.
I mean, I come back to my room after class and take off my jacket and bag.
Then, I start packing up my grocery bag to carry out whatever silverware and cookware that I need for dinner.
Prep-up takes around 20-30 minutes, which is mainly chopping and cutting; cooking takes about the same.
After washing up, I do my usual stand or pop over to my friends' block to see what they're up to.
Later, I have a shower, do my laundry and then mess around on my laptop or finish up whatever handouts I have.

...And bro said that I'd be getting a boyfriend as soon as I got here because of the lonliness.
Hah! I beg to differ.
I'm at my third week and I've yet to feel anything.
I'm rather enjoying my student life here right now, thankyouverymuch.
There's still so much to see and do.
Like the lantern festival this friday at Houghton-le-Spring.

...Ugh, I got to go.
I've got my biochemistry calculations to finish up and I have to chop and prep-up the ingredients for tomorrow's lunch (toast pizza) and dinner (beef stew).
じゃ、また会いましょ!
