A List of Nothings I Have Been Doing Because I'm Not Writing

The title is a little misleading. I'm sorry about that. I haven't really been doing much lately. My days are pretty routine and boring these days. On week days, I wake up whenever I have class, come back and cook something before sundown, break my fast and then I lay around doing a bunch of nothings until it's time to grab a late dinner and go to bed sometime in the am. And here is the list of what I've been doing.

1. I just started reading this book. 


I don't really read autobiographies but I was in my lecturer's office the other day and this book just wouldn't let me leave without it. So here I am at home with it, and it's pretty good. It's very well written. I expected it to be boring but it's really very interesting and I keep finding myself thinking about it when doing other stuff too!

2. Speaking of unexpected...a happy accident happened a few days ago. 

I don't know how it works in the other parts of the world but here in Malaysia, Universities are hunting grounds for business owners. They often set up some tables at our university and displays all kinds of colorful and sparkly stuff that are sure bait to reel in innocent students. 

There was one last week selling sunglasses and prescription glasses. They even had an eye checking thingy set up. Yeah. These people are committed. Nafew saw a pair of sunglasses that he thought would fit us (we wear the same size - the smallest size anyone is carrying because we're two small people), and wanted to check it out; with no plans to buy them. But his overly excited friend waves his hand around and down went the sunglasses. The sales dude picked it up and saw a micro spot on the lens, which he couldn't wipe away, so Nafew had to buy them. And later in class he wiped to dot away! It was a MIRACLE! 

So I came home to find these and I forgot how tired and sleepy and hungry I was. 


Even if we're a few hundred poorer now, I'm not even sad, because I look fabulous in them!

3. Also, I started watching 2 Broke Girls and I love it. It's hiatus season for most shows I watch except Dexter and True Blood, so I started watching it because apparently two shows per week is not enough for me. The two shows air on the same night so technically they can be counted as one, right?

Anyway, I love Max. She is the right kind of funny, unlike Jess in New Girl. I don't hate that show, I actually kind of like it, but Jess is so, so, so annoying I have thought about not watching it many times. 

4. Sleeping.

5. As usual, browsing through random funny stuff on the internet. While doing so, I came across this place they claim is an abandoned underwater strip club and I was going to write about it but Emelie over at Awkwardly Alive and Pleasantly Peculiar wrote about it so you can go over there to read about it :)

6. Writing papers because there always seem to be one due I can't really keep track! Sometimes I don't even know when they were assigned! 

7. Not reading a lot of blogs. I should change that. I will change that.

That's all. 
Have a good weekend!
