Ugh, what a week! I hardly got any rest! GRRR!!!!! Check out how long I slept in the past four days:

Sunday night: 2:00 AM - 6:00 AM
Monday night: 2:15 AM - 6:15 AM
Tuesday night: 3:30 AM - 8:00 AM
Wednesday night: 3:00 AM - 6:00 AM


I only slept for THREE HOURS last night!!! LOL, but the strange thing is, I was pretty awake at school. Well, admittedly, everything felt kinda unreal, as if I was walking around in a dream or something, but I didn't fall asleep in class! Man, only THREE hours. That's like going to bed at 10 PM and getting up at 1 AM.

There's this dating game that's gonna happen at my school on Valentine's Day, you know, the kind where two lucky singles get paired up for a date and everything. lol, if I wasn't so shy, I'd try that! But nah, it'd be too embarassing for me. My classmates would be bugging me about it for the next two months, lol.

You know what? There's gonna be a flower and heart-shaped balloon sale on V-day! I wonder if I'll have the guts to buy one and give it to Kit, hehe! =D Hmm, I REALLY wish I could see how he'd react, 'cuz if it would be a bad reaction, I shouldn't do it, of course. Hey, It would be soooooooo cool if he got a flower for me! Oh man, I would melt right there and then! Hey, I'd be flattered if any guy got me a flower! Okay, maybe not any guy, but you get what I mean!

I remember how in Sec. 5 gym, we had to do a gymnastics routine, and since gymnastics is my thing, I was awesome! Okay, I can't compare to Shannon Miller, obviously, but I was one of the best in the class, and that made me feel so good about myself, 'cuz I suck at pretty much all the team sports we played. When someone did their routine, the others didn't have to watch. They could just continue practicing their own routine while that person was being evaluated. But when I was up, everyone stopped and watched. *grins* Yay, I feel proud of myself! I'm not trying to sound full of myself, it's just that I'm happy that I had the chance to prove that I'm good at something in gym. I only made one mistake: when I was doing a handstand, I accidently fell, *almost* falling on my head, but luckily I brought my arm in front of my face in time and braced it, so I didn't get hurt. But some people thought that I actually fell on my head, though...Oh well, I did everything else really good.

The best part of that day is that Kit saw me do my routine. I hope I impressed him! ;D His routine was pretty interesting. He's okay for a guy. I think he was trying to include some kung fu moves, which was pretty cool.

Oh oh oh! You know what else? At the grad trip, we tried this thing where you have to hold on with your hands and legs (you just sort of loop your legs around it and hang on with your back facing down) to a rope attached to two trees and by pulling yourself with your arms, you had to get to the other side. It's just like those exercises they do in the military, hehe! Anyway, the first people to try it were all guys, and then I said that I wanted to try it out, too. The camp leader was like, "Alright, we've got a girl who wants to try!" I took longer than the guys (it was my first time, after all), BUT I was the ONLY girl to make it to the end! YAAAAYYYY, Kit was there again, and I sure hope he was impressed again! In fact, Siberia took a picture of me doing that military rope drill, and Kit in in the backround watching. Hehe!

ALSO, another game we played was one where there were two long ropes hanging horizontally over a large puddle/swamp, and you had to keep your feet on the bottom rope and hang on to the top rope, and get to the other side without falling in the water. There are two people playing, one on each side, and the first person to get to the other side wins. It's not as easy as it sounds, 'cuz the ropes weren't perfectly tight, so you wind up swinging back and forth if the other person shakes the ropes too much. I went up against this really macho soccer player dude, and I'm pretty sure that some of my classmates were thinking, "There's no way Muriel can win." Well guess what, I DID win! YAYAYAY!!! ME, against a soccer player! A GIRL won against a MACHO SEXIST guy! GO GIRL POWER!!! lol, that guy's soccer coach was among the people in my camp group! I wonder what he was thinking, seeing one of his players lose agaist A GIRL, hehe! Yeah, so anyway, another reason why that moment was so sweet was that YUP, KIT was there, he saw me win, and heeheeeeeee, I sure hope he likes strong girls!

Oookay, I'd better stop going on and on about my greatest moments (hey, I'm so modest most of the times, so it doesn't hurt to be damn proud once in a while, eh?). Hmm, I'd better get started on my lab report *groans*. The sooner I finish it, the sooner I can go to bed!

Luv,
Muriel
