those were the days

1 Nov

I have 5 days of school. This is something we discuss with one another, complain about coming back to school on their OFF day for project meetings. :S Oh well, i would say, at least you have an OFF day, i dont!

Every Monday, school is only from 0800 to 1000 but no, i almost never go home after that to catch up on lost sleep. If it isnt this project meeting, it is the other. *sigh* And they usually last a long time!

Today was no exception, i had a project meeting from 10.30 to 1pm. After that super tiring meeting, brain power used up, i walked slowly towards the bus stop for my ride home.

I just suddenly thought of my time in Finland. No matter what happened there, i still have pleasant memories. I yearn for that time because i was so free to do as i wish! It is not that i cant here, but there is just not enough time for fun when we spend all the time working and studying. And when you do have the time, you’d just have to go to sleep because you too tired.  😦

I didnt need to worry about earning money, though i still do budget alot. I was so free, enjoyed my days watching movies and planning my trips, amidst going to school which is so close by i can walk there and the weather so pretty and cooling. Dont remember feeling so stressed i could burst, like i do now.

Those days are over…

Maybe all i need now is a sister!

Because this article on the NY times said having a sister will make me a happier person 🙂

Haha! My lecturer shared this in class and he said that he might be a happier person if he had a sister! It was funny in class…

From the NY Times:

…….These findings are no fluke; other studies have come to similar conclusions. But why would having a sister make you happier?

The usual answer — that girls and women are more likely than boys and men to talk about emotions — is somehow unsatisfying, especially to a researcher like me. Much of my work over the years has developed the premise that women’s styles of friendship and conversation aren’t inherently better than men’s, simply different.

A man once told me that he had spent a day with a friend who was going through a divorce. When he returned home, his wife asked how his friend was coping. He replied: “I don’t know. We didn’t talk about it.”

His wife chastised him. Obviously, she said, the friend needed to talk about what he was going through………. NY times online
