It's the 28th today. This time last year, everything Doulos/away from home was set, confirmed, 100%, tickets booked, wooopeeedoo, i can't wait etc. A year later, I'm home, doing nothing really, feeling abit nostalgic. Sort of in an in between situation. I don't really miss stuff, or rather don't want to be missing stuff (the way it's been since I came home) but yet my brain's betraying me. It's allowing flashbacks to happen whether i want it to or not. I feel everything when I remember. Some days I wake up feeling like I just woke up in my cabin for a split second, I remember the constant huuuuuummm, remember waking up and knowing my cabin mates are there as well, waking up knowing I'm not on land but on a big chunk of metal, waking up thinking "I wonder what's going to happen today". Then sometimes, I remember the smell, the distinct Accom-cleaning-products smell that goes on throughout the ship.
I get all these but I'm not exactly sad about it. I looked through pictures one day, and there's this little knot I think (don't really know how to describe it), not exactly sad, but the feeling is there. you know? I don't even know.
While on the ship, I kept a daily journal, writing out everything that happened. With the time and all that. I started on the 8th of April I think. So I shall read through it daily come April 8th. It might not be a good idea, but I'll try it anyway.
I've been snapping away with my phone's camera. The days are really pretty and my new phone is so chun la. Have you met Ms S? because it's a w595 and not just a 595 mind you it's a 595 with an s- w595s. Let me gloat about Ms S okay? She's one of a kind, only paid half it's retail price, plus the w595s is only available in Europe and the Caribbean islands, so far I haven't seen the same model on anyone else.
Initially, I asked for this phone. The normal w595 in black as it was the nicer color of the 3 available. Then I found out later that it's quite common, so because I'm Jasmine and I don't like to have what everyone else has, I prayed and hope I'd get a different color or something something. After waiting for 2 weeks, I thought about my phone and just prayed a short silent prayer after school, a few minutes later, my mum comes in the class announcing the fact that my phone has arrived. blablablablabla... we collect, I open and TADA!!! Ms S appears before my eyes.
So, introducing Ms. S aka Ms Sony Ericsson aka Ms Seriously aka Ms Donkey aka Ms Butt...
With a 3.2 mega pixel camera, she takes wonderful pictures
The ONLY downside to this phone, it doesn't have a 2 way camera. So video calling won't be as convenient. But I can't have everything right?!
It's been awhile I guess? but definitely not as long as my previous hiatus. What's happened since?
I dunno lots I guess.
School holidays this week, but none for me. Stupid American test.
I've bought heaps of books! Wonderful colorful cheap books!
I lost track of things I should have written down. So I'll let pictures do the talking.

Fat brother buying books. Where I spent RM100! While paying, I was thinking out loud "Jasmine, what are you doing?!" but it's worth it.
