Hi folks! Today’s WHUBUT is just a short update of how I’m doing since I skipped a couple of WHUBUTs. Not so much going on but…
After being free from my college exams, projects and presentations, I was completely ecstatic! It was just last week and I already feel like I had a month of vacation! There are a lot of goodbyes that’s going to happen:
And the best one yet: Goodbye 7:30 classes!
I am so stoked about having plenty of time with blogging and reading that now I’m in my third book for this month! Typically, I’m limited to reading one book per week, but I guess with a sort of unlimited time, I could read on most hours of the day. (Later, I realized this isn’t entirely true, knowing that I also watch some anime!)
With so much excitement I had, I ended up not writing two (TWO!!) WHUBUTs’ because I was totally enjoying my freedom. I could have been over-enjoying my slothfulness(if that’s even a word!). The good thing that came out while having a break was that I was able to conjure some topics for my WHUBUTs (although still under way) and I can’t wait to share it with you!
Also, I’d like to share that I was bitten by my cat, Loki, on my right hand (but just an itty-bitty one) while playing with him so I had several shots on my shoulders. I used to be afraid of needles but I might be heading to the road of being a medical practitioner soon, so I might as well embrace syringes! While the first one was an adorable shot, the other three were a bit…I could say unpleasant. The second shot was the most painful. The third and fourth got me feeling a bit numb for a few days (I found it annoying since it felt like the needles were stuck on me!) I have several more shots and now my current count of shots are: *DRUM ROLL* 8!!!! My shoulders have these bright red spots now. LOL.
Saying “not so much was going on” at the start of this post was totally an understatement.
But that’s it for now! I’m hoping to finish my other WHUBUTs so I’d get to share my thoughts with you all! How is your March going so far? Let me know in the comments below!
The day nine-year-old San San and her twelve-year-old brother, Ah Liam, discover their grandmother taking a hammer to a framed portrait of Chairman Mao is the day that forever changes their lives. To prove his loyalty to the Party, Ah Liam reports his grandmother to the authorities. But his belief in doing the right thing sets in motion a terrible chain of events.
Now they must flee their home on Drum Wave Islet, which sits just a few hundred meters across the channel from mainland China. But when their mother goes to procure visas for safe passage to Hong Kong, the government will only issue them on the condition that she leave behind one of her children as proof of the family’s intention to return.
