Hi Sterling! :) Thanks for asking. I’m doing fine… maybe not too fine. I’m still living out of 2 suitcases, have tons of research paper to write, have a presentation on Friday and have to go through a heap of cancer biology notes.
Every single night when I unfold my mattress on the floor, and when I realize that almost a month into my university semester I am still living out of two luggage backs, I am reminded of me paying for the mistakes of an absolutely fool who didn’t know how to complete a hall application form properly.
This imbecile that was supposed to apply with me ticked the wrong box in the form and that put me 2 points behind my other peers. In short, I’m at the bottom of the waiting list for a room on campus and I might very much end up without a room for the rest of the semester.
How am I going to survive this? I don’t have a proper table, nor do I have a proper Internet connection or access to a power outlet on the wall. I don’t have a proper bed to sleep on. I don’t have a wardrobe to put my clothes in, and I don’t have a shelf to put my books.
How can a 23-year old male that has gone through 2 years of military training make such a callous, and careless mistake? And he’s local - he still has a HOME to go back to during the weekend or any day he wishes over the week, but I am homeless in Singapore.
