i spent day nine in a pretty lethargic state throughout the day…
i had a university project meeting in the afternoon. i was still stuck with a thermodynamics problem. at night i rewarded myself for being a lazy twat to chicken rice, after a week of vegetarian meals.
a swab test is done on the 10th day of quarantine and there was a knock at about 7:30am and i thought i was late for it! but no…it was just breakfast. nevertheless i popped out of bed and had breakfast and did some studying, mixed with Netflix here and there. im watching Cuckoo and it’s actually weirdly hilarious and hilariously weird.
was summoned at about 11:30am to do the PCR test and i waited at the hallway for a few moments before i was joined by another 6 quarantine buddies and together with the POC we took the lift. though it was really short, it felt great to be able to put on shoes and see some people! after they verified my payment status, i had to go to another section to get my nostril pricked. it was different from the one that i did in Germany, the nurse or whoever she is kept going deeper and deeper into my right nostril then she kept saying “sorry sorry sorry sorry sorry…” as i was like: *cough* *cough cough* *cough cough cough* *COUGH* and my right eye was tearing up. however at the end of the ordeal i still assured her, while half-coughing and with tears, that “it’s okay.”
this in total took about 20 minutes, from when i was first called to being back in my quarantine space again. i also saw two guys, with whom i briefly chatted with when we arrived 10 days ago; we locked eyes and nodded and waved, without even a squeak. pretty weird how it was as if we thought that we weren’t allowed to speak.
today the registration for the AstraZeneca vaccination opens to younger people at states with the highest cases (mine). i am gonna get mine in Germany so i was helping a friend but the website pretty much jammed. and then i tried refreshing it and it wouldn’t even bring me to the registration page anymore. since i was really free, i pretty much stalked the Malaysians that i follow on Insta to see that everyone had the same problem ahahahhahaa. there are so many jokes on Twitter about it so my day was made. someone also called it AstraJenaka, “jenaka” meaning “joke” in Malaysian hahahahaha. which is why i spent quite some time on Twitter and Instagram today, witnessing how everyone is dissing the Malaysian government. i took a nap too.
i have a little games night with some friends later, this time with people in the same timezone. quite looking forward to it since i haven’t spoken to them for a long time too.
oh and i submitted my thermodynamics homework.
