Our midterm exams week is finally over! YAAAAS! Haha. I’ve been studying day-in and day out since last month and I think my taste buds got tired of the taste of coffee. Haha. By the way, I promised myself not to drink coffee for one week, let’s see how it will go (or if I will survive). Haha.
Oh, so it’s February already! The so-called “love month” is here. Haha. On the 14th, the loved (and hated) Valentine’s Day will be “celebrated” (or dreaded). For those who may not know, Valentine’s Day is actually a commemoration for a martyr (St. Valentine) who kept on solemnizing marriages even after the then Emperor Claudius II banned all marriages and engagements in Rome. Apparently, Emperor Claudius II, or “Cruel Claudius”, had this idea that due to Roman men’s strong attachment to their wives and/or children, nobody wanted to join the Roman army. (If you want to know more, you can click here for more details). So, St. Valentine went against the iron-clad rule of an emperor to celebrate love by way of solemnizing marriages. I hope, with all my heart, that the essence of what St. Valentine fought for (very very very) long time ago will not be cheapened by the “commercialized” way of “celebrating” St. Valentine’s Day. But anyway, who am I to preach about love and Valentine’s Day? Haha. My February 14th is reserved for me to finish my backlogs and to catch up with whatever school work left unfinished. Haha. (oh and yes, I study on Sundays, that’s why I can’t make those mainstream “Sunday Currently” blog posts.) Haha.
One thing that I love in the month of February is that there are tons of heart patterns and/or heart-shaped things almost everywhere, and I love heart patterns and heart-shaped stuff! It is as if those the manufacturers (of whatever products) grabs the opportunity to attract heart-pattern-crazy consumers/buyers like me! Haha! Hooray for heart patterns! <3
Oh! We will be celebrating the Chinese New Year on the 8th! (another school holiday, yay!) From where I came from, Chinese New year is quite a big deal because a big fraction of the population of our country comprises of Chinese Nationals and Chinese citizens. Most of them are living in our country for the business that they own, and some are for vacation. So, to my dear readers, Kung Hei Fat Choi!
(I am born on the year of the sheep, will I be lucky this year, as per our feng shui experts? Haha)
So how did your first week of February go? Was it fun?
What are your plans on Valentine’s Day?
