I’m back in track in England have settled down nicely in my new flat. I still live on campus due to some very unforeseen last minute decisions last year, but I’m not complainging — I’m still close to everything and campus life in England is a very social one. The photo above shows the dressing corner of my room. I have a wardrobe, but I’ve always been fond of clothes racks to showcase your more original/pretty pieces of clothing. I reckon anyone interested in designing would benefit from having a rack instead of a drawer or a normal wardrobe! The long white garment at the front there is actually my ball gown from last year’s pharmacy ball :) I’ve met the new pharmacy freshers and they all looked a bit scared and overwhelmed. Hah, feels like it was only a month ago that I was a fresher myself! Oh well, I already have quite a bit of work to do only 3 days into the new year, but I’m a second year student now so I guess they expect us to work for a change.
I went to London on Friday to see some friends of mine I’ve been meaning to see for a full year now but never got around to. I saw this guy in Trafalgar Square and was so intrigued by it that I asked him to hold up the signs for me so that I could snap a photo. He refused and said he would do it on one condition: if I agreed to do what the sign said. I reluctantly did my bit by letting them take photo of me holding one of their signs, and there is now a slight possibility that I will be in their music video for their debute single on 4th October. Should be exciting.
It was SocMart yesterday, which means all the societies at my university set up stalls to try to convince you to join their society. I managed to join about 6 societies – Literature, Creative Writing, Hong Kong (I’m in the committee, actually), Pharmacy, Coctail and South-East-Asian. I also signed up for Ladies Society (female equivalent to a Gentleman’s Club, you know those posh ones you sometimes see in England) and Glee society, but I’m not entirely sure how I am going to juggle all this in addition to my studies. Sportsmart commences today as well, which is when all the sports club set up stalls and I might rejoin archery this year. I’m not sure. I wish there were 48 hrs in a day.
In any case, I just realized I forgot to tell you that I am the Creative Director in Hong Kong Society this year. My job is to do all the designing bit for logo, membership cards, business cards, tshirts and hoodies, leaflets, brochures etc. Basically anything that needs designing! Am I enjoying doing something creative again? Hell yes I am!
