Memories: Ch5

I woke up, as light shone through my eyelids. The lights were on. I looked at the clock. 2am. I swore under my breath, and changed clothes, and turned off the light that I did not turn off. Then I went to sleep again.

#########

Light shone through my eyelids again. I woke up. It was morning. I looked at the clock. 10am. I unlocked my phone and checked for notifications. A few mails, a few game alerts, and other miscellaneous things that I didn’t care about. I closed my phone again, and opened my flip phone. Nothing. I closed my phone and yawned, then sat up on the bed.

Sunday.

I felt lazy. But I knew I had to do something than roll around in my bed. I got up, went into the bathroom, washed, and went to the kitchen. I was hungry. My parents were in the living room, sitting on the sofa. I said ‘Good morning’ and they greeted me back. I went back to the kitchen and looked for something to eat. The rest of my family ate toast, so I decided to make some as well. I got some eggs and dunked some bread in it. Then I fried the said bread, making toast. Well… I more like burnt it. I was horrible at cooking. I didn’t know when something was cooked right, so I always burnt it to make sure.

Despite the burnt state and the burnt taste, the toast was actually quite good, except for it being way too slimy for my taste.

I finished the toast, put the dishes in the sink, and went back into my room. I unlocked my LG G5, and started war dragon. I did a few attacks, and trained my dragons to another level. This was a game I loved as I normally sucked at games but this game required no skill and I was quite good at it. I sighed. If only life was this simple as well.

I closed my phone and got up. I had to do something productive. And there was only one productive thing I could do. I packed my bag, told my parents that I’m going to school, and stepped out of home. I jumped into the air and started to fly.

I lit up a cigar and drew a breath. Clean scent filled my mouth and my mind felt cleaner. I drew up another breath. Then I threw it away. I was not going to smoke a full cigarette when my mind was clean enough.

Soon I arrived at school. I once again went to my homeroom and unpacked my bag, and started to study.

############

I was using my phone. I really didn’t feel like studying today. Nor could I focus on what I was doing. ‘Maybe I should go back home.’ I thought. ‘Yeah. Let’s just go back home.’ And with that, I packed my bag again. 2 hours wasted. I didn’t study, but that didn’t mean that I played either. I was somewhere in between, and that was something that I did not like.

I flew back out of school, and went back home to leave my bag there. I threw my bag on my bed, and went out again.

I flew around for a bit, just going wherever the wind took me. I flew around with no aim, flying high and low. I just wanted the air on my scales.

After flying around for a bit, I went back home. I had a society assignment I had to complete, and it required a computer. I went to the computer in the living room and turned it on. The screen flickered, then came to life. I loaded up Microsoft PowerPoint, and clicked on ‘new presentation’. Then I started to make my presentation.

############

I was tired. I didn’t want to do anything. I sighed, and saved the presentation I was making, and closed the window. Apparently, today was one of those days when you didn’t want to do anything but laze around. I slowly dragged myself back to my room, and plugged my phone in. Then I just fell onto my bed.

‘Damn, I don’t want to do anything.’ I thought. But in the corner of my kind, I knee that I would have to finish the presentation today, as today was the day I could have the most time making it. But I was tired. I wanted to rest.

I sighed again, and reached for my phone while lying down on my bed. There wasn’t anything noteworthy, and I started up a game. But I had no fun playing it as well, and I shut my phone and threw it on the counter beside my bed.

And without knowing, I went to sleep, again, with the lights on.

Memories: Ch4

‘Yawwwn’

I woke up, stretching. It was Saturday, which meant I could wake up late. I, however, had an extra math class I signed up for.

I got up, went to the bathroom, and cleaned up my scales and hair. Then I prepared to go to school. I was already kind of late, as I needed to get up early but didn’t, so I took my time preparing.

I came out of my uomr, and started to fly over to school. I dug through my pocket, and pulled out my flip phone and smart phone. I used two phones, as I needed a smart device to write my diary and story. I opened my flip phone and checked for notifications. There wasn’t anything noteful.

I unlocked my LG G5, and opened the music app. I connected my earbuds since my headphones broke, and started one of the music I had. I was a giant music fan. I simply loved music. I only had 616 files on my phone, but I had a bit over 2300 files on my computer.

I hummed along to the tune as I flew. Soon, I arrived at school, and I flew up to the 3rd floor where the math class was located. I entered the class, and was kinda shocked.

Only 2 dragons, excluding Ms.Aliea was there. There was supposed to be at least 10. Somehow they were all late like me or all decided to skip class. Lol.

I took a seat, and started to solve the questions Ms.Aliea handed out. As I solved the questions, 2 more dragons arrived. That made 5 dragons participating in class, including me.

Then Ms.Aliea stopped us and we matched our answers to the official answers. Then we solved the questions we didn’t know together, then the class ended.

Normally, I would have an extra math class out of school at a teacher’s home, but that class for postponed due to Ms.Oblia’s personal errands.

I flew back home, threw the bag on my bed, and said ‘I’m home!’ to my mom. She replied by ‘Do you want breakfast?’ as I skipped it before class, and I said yes. I connected my phone to my Wi-Fi, and checked for notifications. Again, nothing noteworthy. I shut my phone and went to the kitchen for breakfast. It was basically some cooked rice with other helpings.

I ate, abd came back to my room. ‘Maybe I’ll to back to school to study more.’ I thought, and debated on whether to actually go or not.  Finally, I decided to go, and packed up my bag again.

I started back to school, after telling my mom, and stepped out of my house and started to fly again. On mu way. I lit up a cigar and drew a breath from it.

I flew over to school, and went into my homeroom. I pulled out a few books from my bag, and started to study.

###########

It was 5pm. I was packing my bag once more. While I was studying, Focaly came over, and studied beside me. Now he wanted to get dinner before Mrs.Oblia’s class started, hence why I was packing my bag.

‘Good to go?’ I asked.

‘Yeah.’ He replied, and we flew out of school, heading for the nearby vietnam noodle place. Because I had studied for nearly 4 hours straight, a cigarette attracted me and I lit one to clean my mind.

Curse my nation’s education system. If not for it, I wouldn’t be smoking. If not for it, I wouldn’t have to study on Saturdays, Sundays, or other holidays. If not for it, I wouldn’t be so stressed out!’

I cursed in my mind, and finished my cigarette. I threw it away, and quickly caught up with my friend. I had been a bit lagging behind to not give him any harm from the cigarette.

‘Done?’ he asked, and I nodded. Soon, we arrived at the place, and my friend went in to order a meal while I hung out outside. I didn’t have any money to spare, so I really couldn’t afford any meal out of home.

###########

My friend is an extremely slow eater. He literally took an hour to finish his bowl of noodles. I hung out outside, kind of shivering because I wore shorts for the day. He finally came out of the store, finished his dinner, and we headed for Mrs.Oblia’s home, as the class would take place there.

###########

It was not 7. I looked at the clock, then dropped my gaze back at the book. 1 hour till I can head home.

###########

It was now 8. 8 in the night. I had skipped lunch, and was going to have a late dinner. I. Was. Starving. I packed my math books into my bag, and slung the bag over my shoulder.

‘You are to solve the questions till you reach page 236.’ Mrs.Oblia said, and I nodded my head. Focaly had already got his assignment, and was heading out of Mrs.Oblia’s room, which was used for the sole purpose of class. I followed Focaly, said my departures to Mrs.Oblia, abd shut the door of her home behind me. Focaly was waiting for me.

‘Damn, I’m tired.’ I said.

‘You should be. You skipped lunch and didn’t have dinner yet.’ He said.

‘Yeah…’ I replied.

We flew in silence. Both of us were tired. Then I asked ‘Should I smoke?’ to Focaly. Smokes attracted me in my tired state.

‘Umm…no? You already had 3 today, including the one you smoked in-between studying. Mind your health, dude.’ He replied, chuckling a bit.

‘Guess you’re right.’ I said, and shoved the thought away.

I went home, and had some food. Then I went to my room and rested. I was exhausted. ‘I still have to bursh my teeth and wash…’ I thought.

But without knowing it, I was sleeping, with nothing on my mind actually done.

Memories: Ch3

It was Friday. I was flying to school once more. At the moment, I was in high spirits as I woke up early and I had two English classes today. More time to write, and no need to rush.

I went through the school gate, and headed for the lockers. Once I was there, I stuffed my bag in there, and pulled out a few books and papers. I stuffed the papers in my pocket, and held the books in my arms as I headed for the first class, which was art. Art wasn’t my favorite class, but it wasn’t my least, either.

‘Wait a second.’ I thought. ‘I don’t need the art book. Why am I holding it?’ and I went back to my lockers and put the book back in. We always did something that we either made or draw, we didn’t need our books at all. So why had I pulled it out on the first place? Lol.

I flew up to the 6th floor, and went into the art class and went into the art class. Today, we were to draw creatively, changing the original painting of Mona Lisa. I drew a bunch of dragons sitting in the back of a truck, and named the painting ‘To the farm.’ I snickered a bit at my painting. Then I handed it over to the teacher for grading. Then the bell rang.

I went to the math class, and prepared for the presentation I had to do. I had to solve the question Ms.Aliea gave out as an assignment. The presentation went smoothly, and I was pleased with myself. Maybe I have improved, you know?

The one before lunch was English. As always, I pulled out my pen and paper, and started to write. The main character’s friend was kinda my fantasy. I didn’t have any old-friends, so I made her a life-long friend, and I didn’t have any girl friend, so I made her a female. Basically my own fantasy. While I was writing, Mrs.Han passed by, looking at my work. Soon, I ran out of ideas, and put the paper back in my pocket. Maybe I’ll get some more ideas later.

I started to think about what to do at lunch period. And, more importantly, what to eat. I was hungry, as I always ignore breakfast. Today was the same. I skipped breakfast, and was now starving. But I didn’t want a burger today. Maybe I should get steak? Yeah. Steak sounded good. The bell rang soon, and I dumped my books in the locker, and flew to the cafeteria to get some steak. Thank god not a lot of dragons liked rare steak, or else it would be out like those well-done steaks.

I grabbed a dish, and took a seat near the window. I slowly ate it, then grabbed another dish of steak. I ate it as well, and went out under the same tree as yesterday and started to read. Everything was peaceful, and the breeze was just right. I continued reading.

##########

The bell rang, indicating that I had 5 minutes till class starts. I closed my phone, stuffed it in my pocket, and got up. Time to learn about geography. Boring, but better than Korean.

I went to my locker again, and pulled out the book I need. But I felt tired. Maybe I’ll ignore this class and sleep..?

I walked to class debating on whether to or not to sleep in class. Eating two chunks of steak definitely made me drowsy. But, it was delicious, so it’s not bad…right..?

I say down, and soon one of my friend joined me. It was colin.

‘Hey.’ He said.

‘Hey.’ I replied.

‘You listened to the lecture about that college yesterday, right? Why did you? You said you’d go to an automotive college. Changed your mind?’

‘No. The college I thought of is kind of a campus of that said college. So I thought, you know, maybe u’d get some info? Didn’t though.’

‘Oh. You’re really gonna go to that automotive college, aren’t you? Then… you know whay a crankshaft is?’ He said, trying to challenge me.

I laughed inwardly. I always won these kinds of challenges, yet he still tries to challenge me. ‘Of course I do! Then, you know what a camshaft is?’ It was a basic question, and I was kinda mocking him. To my surprise, he nodded, but suddenly went silent. So I doubted that he actually knew what a crankshaft is.

‘I’m going to sleep.’ He said, and laid his head down on the desk.

‘I’m going to as well. I’m tired, too.’ I said, abd laid down on my own desk.

And like that, the geography class went by, with both of us sleeping.

###########

The class got noisy, and I woke up. Colin was already up. In a few minutes, the bell would ring, and I would be able to get out of this class. A few minutes later, the bell indeed did ring, and I got out of class. History next.

###########

It was now the second English class, and the last class before one additional class and self-study time. Also, one hour before dinner. I did all my works I had to do, and was now writing once more. ‘If I’m lucky, I might be able to finish this chapter.’ I thought. ‘Hopefully I can.’

###########

It was dinner time. I didn’t fee like eating a lot, so I just got some salad and fruits.

The salad… was rather warm, and I didn’t enjoy it a lot. But the fruits were ice-cold, and ripe just right. I did enjoy them. After dinner, I found my friend Focaly, who was another easterner, and urged him to go to a nearby store with me for a flight. I myself, not having much appetite or money, didn’t buy anything, but I did make Focaly buy a roll of bread to eat. You know you’re a real bro if you don’t use any money but make others use, right? Ok, ok. That was a joke. Anyways, then we flew back to school, and went to each one’s classes. We had self-study time before we could go home.

###########

It was the second half of self-study time. Only a bit of time left before I could finally head home.

###########

The bell rang, and now I could go home. I packed my bag, and enthusiastically went out od class, as it was the last day of week, and crashed into… Avil. I dropped my bag because of the crash.

‘Sorry.’ I said, and picked up my bag and her books.

‘No,no. No need to. I’m the one who should have been cautious.’ She said. She was holding a bag as well.

‘You going home?’ I asked.

‘Yeah.’ She replied, and looked at my bag. ‘I see you’re going home as well.’

‘Yeah. Umm… mind if I accompany you to the school gate?’ I asked, trying not to sound rude or offensive.

‘No. Let’s go then, shall we?’ she said, and led the way. I quickly caught up to her, and flew on her side. The school gate wasn’t far, so we had to part ways very soon.

‘Bye.’ She said.

‘Bye.’ I replied, and waved a claw at her. She smiled at me, and flew away. I continued on my way, and despite my tired condition, my mood was high. I went home, got some cereal and milk, ate, then started tying again. Faster than normal, ADL Ch3 was done, and I went to sleep, feeling happy.

It was a good day.
