College is...taking a lot out of me. But I'm enjoying it. Who'd have thought that in a month, I'd have made a group of friends to hang out with/go everywhere with/get homework help from/discuss guys with?

Trishi, Shean Yen, Ying Ying, and me.

Everyone's been having to get to college by 7 a.m. for the past two days; the 5.45 a.m. wake up calls end tomorrow. I've been trying not to complain too much since I might one day look back upon all this (five or six hours of sleep a night, walking the streets of KL in the semidarkness, having my mother and sister wake up super early too since we have to leave the house at the same time...) and laugh. This come-to-college-crazy-early-in-funny-clothes thing (I got to wear my prefects uniform yesterday!) is supposed to be some sort of orientation, although I thought they had the camp for that.

Speaking of camp, that's where I'm off to tomorrow! To be honest, I'm not ecstatic about sleeping in tents and cold water showers and jungle trekking and the prospect of leeches. I am, however, looking forward to bonding with my college mates. If there's one thing I've learned from all those prefect camps, it's that people inevitably bond if you stick them all together in an unpleasant situation in an unpleasant place far away from home (the unpleasant situation is almost always jungle trekking, whether during the day or night). It's a little bit touching, seeing people put aside their differences and help pull leeches off each other.

Yuck yuck yuck yuck yuck.

Seriously, though, I'm kind of looking forward to camp. We all have to go anyway, so might as well make the best of it. Hopefully, the next time I blog, I'll be browner and leech bite-free. Wish me luck!
