I’m pretty sure I swallowed a fly today. Whatever it was it threw itself down my mouth pretty fast, had me choking and all on my way home from badminton this evening.
Oh and I got a bit bored and made a rage comic, lol;
But today was nice. School itself was average and for tomorrow I’ll be off timetable because myself and another dozen students are to take part in a debate replicating that of the United Nations. We call ours the Model UN and so it’s a smaller scale debate with each pupil the delegate of their respective country discussing issues at hand. It sounds pretty interesting and there’s the larger Model UN debate where different schools gather together to debate, but I won’t be able to attend. This is because next week I have a work placement at a Barrister’s Chamber, meaning I’ll be shadowing and working close-by Barristers in their field and learning more about it. I have no actual interest in becoming a Barrister, in fact I’ve scrapped that thought long ago. But it’s a prestigious work placement nonetheless and I look forward to it. Plus it’s a week off school and right now we’re still on pointless chitchat in lessons, aside from the odd unit in Geography or so.
I’ve also been reading further into the book Ark by Stephen Baxter, y’know, the sequel to the book Flood I had a fan-fit over some ages back. I’m over 200 pages in and I think we’ve pretty much hit the epicentre of it all. Flood spoke about the Earth flooding and eventually creating a global ocean of a height that floods Mt. Everest itself by 2052 and the Ark is the story of 76 “Candidates” in their twenties on a spaceship trip that’ll take them decades in order to find a new planet suitable for life. In order to reach these possible planets in the time they have they’ll have to move faster than the speed of light in a warp bubble literally removing themselves from the “universe” we reside in. Not everything goes as planned and I think because I read ahead I’m sure there’s a mutiny attempt and like half of them travel another decade back to try and return to Earth but I’m not too sure. Either way it’s just as amazing as the Flood is and I’m pretty psyched to read the last half or so.
On the way to badminton today actually I happened to come across a poster for one of Stephen Baxter’s recent books The Long Earth which again holds precious to its hard-science fiction roots. I won’t be bothered reading it though. The next book I read’ll have to be more pop-culture. Fifty Shades of Grey perhaps? Haha.
Badminton was also really enjoyable today too. Tu who I hadn’t seen since the odd alcoholic drink up on Sunday came along with us today and while Le-My wasn’t able to attend we had a great time. It’d been years since I last done any sports with Tu and to play again him and Tony on the same court felt like old school times. Perhaps I’ll have to bring along Michael next time. The four of us were insanely close back then and we still are now, I guess with all of us each attending different sixth forms and one of us ultimately dropping out of it there’s little room for contact nowadays. So I guess these meet-ups really do help us catch up on what we’ve missed between each other. Plus we all had a laugh over Tu’s fist and skin of his hand which was more-or-less still bleeding tearing off after he had the urge to punch a tree on that Sunday of ours… lol.
Myself, Tu and Tony’ll be going to Michael’s house tomorrow anything. I think we’ll try raid his stock of noodles tomorrow, that’ll be interesting. I’m hoping for Sadian to try and come aswell (bitch better come) to close up the small gap in my group of friends outside of sixth form and for them to meet properly. They’d met at some summer school last year but they were both hella awkward then. Hell, they’d probably still be awkward together now.
It’s nice to have a day that just flows so well. I had a clear mind today, thoughts weren’t jumbled, I held no thoughts of seclusion and I was damn right not socially awkward. Just an average, ordinary day. Everything is ordinary, nothing amazing happens here.
And that’s that.
Thank you for reading.
Take care, thank you and sweet dreams. Good night.
Insanity is sane.
