It’s Friday, Friday…

Right now the phenomenal Friday song by Rebecca Black is replaying in my head. As most youtube addicts know, it’s a song about “getting down on friday” and how ”everybody’s looking forward to the weekend”. The rest of the lyrics are just about hanging out with friends and “partyin’, partyin’, yeah!”. You get the point.

While my friends are probably out tonight having a date with their boyfriend/girlfriend, or hanging out with their friends, or having dinner with their family, or stuck with work at the office, or planning some great event at campus… I am alone in my dorm room without any plans for anything, not doing anything.

Well, to be fair, I had been doing some things today. I was rather productive – when I was awake. I woke up at 1.30 pm all groggy and zombie-like because I hadn’t slept at all the last three nights and I could only fall asleep at around 7.30 am. Then I went online to check my emails, facebook messages, and chats to see if anyone had said hi (it’s not as pathetic as it sounds). Then I took a shower for about 20 minutes, meaning to drive away the zombie-like feeling. It worked. However, I had to bear with sneezing for the rest of the day.

A few hours later, I went to the ATM centre to get some cash and transfer some money. After that, I did my monthly shopping at a local minimarket (I love doing my monthly shopping. I could spend hours choosing what to buy and not to buy and reconsidering and comparing prices etc. Hahaha…). Then I finally got my lunch at 4.30 pm. I ate my food while watching an episode of One Litre of Tears. I always cry when I watch it, no matter how many times I’ve watched it. Come to think of it, it must be comical to catch sight of me eating my rice, fish, and vegetable soup with tears streaming down my face (laughs). I’m glad I was alone in my room.

After I ate, I did my laundry. I love doing my laundry at my new dorm because we have a washing machine! You may not know how much that means to me. You see, I used to enjoy doing my laundry by hand until my hands got so sensitive that they blistered and bled afterwards. I tried switching detergents but there was not much difference. Anyway, having a washing machine is such a blessing. I don’t like having to use a laundry service all the time.

After I finished doing my laundry, I went online again and chatted with my friends on skype. I even got a call from my friend online and we spent about half an hour talking about school and our club and stuff. Then… here I am writing a post on my blog about my day.

I’m not saying it’s a bad day. It was an average day. I just wish I could hang out. I want to go see the highly anticipated Hunger Games movie with a friend. I want to eat my favorite food at Bebek Goreng Haji Slamet. I want to go out…

Haha… I am so whiny. Sorry guys.

Oh well, maybe next week. I have an exam in a few days anyway. In the meantime, I’ll entertain myself by listening to Rebecca Black.

“Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday

Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend, weekend

Friday, Friday, gettin’ down on Friday

Everybody’s lookin’ forward to the weekend

Partyin’, partyin’, yeah!

Partyin’, partyin’, yeah!

Fun, fun, fun, fun,

Lookin’ forward to the weekend.”


I’ve lost my marbles.
