Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Aye... the first week of school has ended. It seems okay for now. Lol...
The subjects I've got are publication design, advertising campaign 2, business and client management and portfolio presentation. And add the retaking of Corporate Identity 2. I haven't taken portfolio presentation yet because it was on Hari Raya, a public holiday (that made all the major roads in KL free of jams, lol).
Well, advertising campaign 2 seems the usual, except stricter on certain things. Publication design seems the most challenging, we need to create an actual book, and things like cover, texture and all that are considered. Zzz. Business and client management seems easy. And CI2 is going to be slightly different. For one, I'm classmates with Miki again after almost 2 entire years. Heh, at least I've got some company apart from the other failures and retaking students. Plus I can look after her in a sense. I'm also classmates with plenty of people I've heard about, although never interacted with directly. Sure to be interesting -.-. I was quite a pain to Leon in the first lesson. Lol. I kept talking back to him and making snide remarks about him failing me, although in good humour. He paid it back -.-. And I found out that it was indeed the logo that made me fail. In addition, to add salt to the wound, I found out that I failed by just 3 marks. I got 47%. Geez. I was the "top failure" and wasn't supposed to fail if it weren't for my logo. What the.
The only benefits I see are that I can refine and heavily improve my previous semester's work for CI2 and use it in my portfolio. And a bonus, there's a tutor (the staff assistants for the lecturers) called Shi Wei that's like super cute! And I've been accused of flirting with her in the first minute I met her. Well...
On Thursday after CI2, Miki was supposed to go back home and I had another lesson (its from 7pm-9pm, zzz). Surprisingly, Justin and Miki stayed back just so she could drive me back home. Aww, much appreciated and touched! She came over my place for a while to chat some evaluations before heading off.
And the next day, Miki, Justin, Bruce and I were supposed to go to sing at a karaoke with Ephraim, Jia Xiang and Dominic, three people I've recently been introduced to. However, Bruce was stressed over things and asked not to join, Jia Xiang said he was going back to his hometown later on (despite agreeing to come for the karaoke the previous day, so what the hell), and Dominic wanted to sleep. Ephraim overslept. Lol. So it was just the three of us. As a karaoke with just us didn't seem that fun, we decided to go somewhere to eat. We found out in CI2 that Leon actually designed the logo and business cards for Alexis, some posh, high class bistro. It's located in Bangsar, another high class place. And its inside Bangsar Shopping Centre, which is like a high class mall. Geez.
We went inside and ate some kind of cake. It's made up mainly of some egg thingy. I forgot what it's called. It's created by continuously whipping egg whites until they're foamy. And with some kind of custard or bread thing. Heck, I've got no idea when it comes to cooking and food. Let's just say it tasted awesome and literally melts in your mouth. And we had passionfruit tea in addition to it. It was great just chilling out there enjoying the food and drinks, while enjoying the very high class atmosphere (we were probably the most out of place with our dressing). During the course of hanging out there we were sharing about one another's positives and negatives, and suggesting things to improve on and praising the positives. Nothing we off limits (as it has been for some time now), so it was a good sharing session.
Later on Miki's mom joined us and brought us to some lam mee place, and OldTown White Coffee to eat, treating us all the way. And we went to KLCC for a while too. And we had a good time chatting the entire time! Later on, Justin and I were planning to have dinner, but I had no idea of the good places to eat in Cheras, so I went back home to ask my mom. She decided to eat with us too, and brought us to some place that had typical Chinese food. Interestingly again, we all had a good chat about various things, especially our bad encounters with maids. Lmao. The entire day spent with one another and our mothers! If we had spent some time with Justin's mother too, it would've been a complete set. Haha!
All in all, it was an awesome and deep time.
And seeing Justin line up for cotton candy is the image of the century.
