Here to rant yet about another ordinary month.
I am about to verge upon the butt end of my first semester in this campus and that can only mean... final exams are in a week. The thing is, I was disembarked here during a short semester. The entity of my university is that the authority of hand-picking your own subjects for first-semester students are strictly off limits. They just give out pre-organized class schedules to the newbies. I was a newbie. And so, the choice of subjects I took this semester was out of my hands. Which wasn't that much of a bad situation for me. I was assigned two subjects, one which was at a 100% coursework grading. So that means I only had one paper to sit for this week... French.
Having only two subjects brought about only 3 days of classes with extra short study hours during the week. for 7 weeks. I was at ease. Given my very little hours of exposure in the university, people hardly see me and I hardly see them too.
But don't get me wrong. I have friends. Quite an amount of them I might say. Friends that did pre-u with me and also my secondary school friends. But still, it's still kinda difficult to actually see them around the campus. Not saying that I do not bump into any friends but the thing is... Every time when I do bump into a friend, this will happen...
Friend: Hey Eunice! I didn't know you're studying here! What course are you doing?
Me: Hi Friend! It's been a while. I'm doing CL.
Friend: Waaaahh. You makeup ah?
Me: Erh...Yeah... I gotta go dude. See ya!
Sometimes I feel like I am being a little too gracious. I wouldn't flip out like this if people were to ask me this once. But do you really have to ask me so many times? I am not doing my make up like stage gaga now am I? I really do not know how to respond to this. Why does this only happen in my school? Maybe because only 20% of the girls in my university wears makeup. So I guess that's why they're going all ballistic on me and trying to tell me that wearing makeup here is weird and uncalled for.
Well, I guess unless you have really bad eye sight, why else would you deliberately ask if someone's wearing makeup when you can clearly tell that she is? You think I look weird is it? Not nice is it?
