I couldn’t sleep. I had stayed up to finish my blog and now I was paying the price. Hours of tossing and turning. I tried washing my face, drinking water, turning on the aircon, listening to music, sleeping upside down and without pillow to without avail. My constant movement spurred my mother to try to help me get to bed. She sat by me quietly, gently massaging me and trying to gently lure me to sleep. Just a reminder how kind she was. By the time I got to bed it was around six and an hour later it was time for swimming.
Lyka had experienced a similar problem and was running on two hours of sleep. After two cups of water for breakfast and bare bone hygiene I was out the door. Then I went to meet Lyka. I was starving so we decided to go to McDonald’s for a while to get something to eat. While there we started to have doubts if we were gonna get any swimming done. We were dauntless however and trudged on to our destination.
We went to swim at a public pool at a place called Mount Carmel which is near the Cotai Casino Strip and a lake. The is where the yearly Lusofania is held aswell.

Lyka knew how to swim, but we went there to iron out the kinks if you will; perfect her freestyle. We made good progress, and in the end swam about 10 laps over the course of an hour. While leaving for the changing room, I unintentionally ended up in the woman changing room. Luckily I was unnoticed and made haste my escape!
Lyka was taking a shower so I had some time to play around with my new compact camera. Obviously not as good as my Nikon, but it’s so handy to just video blog and point and shoot. I got to take some photos of the surrounding areas.

We then finally got to met Liam after our failed attempt on Sunday. They were chilling at Liam’s house. Man it was good to see him again! We ended up watching lots of trailers for horror movies. Also this:
We ended singing it the entire day -,-
We had a quick-lunch at Liam’s and then were off to dance practice. Liam wanted to start a dedicated group of dancers and it was a debut practice. They made a dance to Mercy by Kanye West. You hear the same part over and over again, you just start hating the song. Lyka and I, not being dancers were quite bored but came to support anyways. We danced for a good four hours and were off for dinner.
We had dinner at Little Red Panda again. Most of the predinner time was spent taking and hiding each others things. On the way to the bus stop we stopped at US Mart to get some Laffy Taffy.
Before I could go home and rest I needed to do one last thing. We were having a Picnic tomorrow and me and Marilda were in charge of chips and utensils. We spent more time than needed, blankly looking at items and talking. Marilda crashes the cart. Alot.
Tomorow there’s going to be a picnic, then John has planned this F4 graduation Party before school starts. Then were gonna sleep over somewhere. Better get some sleep now I suppose..
Two Random Things.
My mom got to see the Chinese Gold Medalist today, including a Ping Pong Player named Ding Ning which I cheered on and made fun off a few weeks back.
My headphones are actually sounding bad due to bad MP3’s. A rewatched review alerted me to that.
