Wow. I was out the whole day when I should have been home packing. Sigh. Whatever.
So anyway, besides packing, shopping for last-minute stuff, eating the food people have been feeding me as if I won't see Penang again - I've been reading. Voraciously.
Reading as much as I can before college starts, when homework and assignments deprive me from this pleasurable habit.
I borrowed 22 books from Dalat yesterday. Let's see whether I can plow through the whole lot by next Friday.
It's been a rat race for me this year. Rushing to complete my music. Frantically preparing for concerts and auditions and church events. Dealing with the death of my dear doggie :(. Packing (reluctantly), shopping (happily), eating (while promising myself I'd work out later).
Then there's the mental and emotional side as well. Like how I feel super hyper and excited about college, meeting new people, and learning, but also how unsettled, sad....reluctant about leaving everything I love and am familiar with.
It's no surprise I'm left exhausted and dazed.
So I shrug everything off and make the best I can out of this very high-strung year. I'll be off in less than two weeks, people. My heart yearns to be at both at places at once.
But then I can't have everything...
