I’m back! Hello. How are you? You know who I am, surely. I’m OK (Oattra). If you want to know more about me, check out my bio post – insert self-deprecating title here (original)
I’ll mention the basics. I’m now a 7th grader at Thalun International School and I’m from Yangon, Myanmar. I’ve been at Thalun for over two years now. (Well, two years and one day by the time I started writing this.)
I have to write about what I did this summer so I won’t be focusing on re-introducing myself.
My summer wasn’t as interesting and fun as you might expect. I wasn’t able to leave for the LAB Competition, even though I was qualified. I decided not to go because the year had been frustrating and tiring. I just wanted to relax and think. So while the others were going to school every other day, working on their projects, I was in bed either watching TV/Youtube or using my phone. I was also able to think about what I’ve done in the past and what I want and should do in the future. However, a few other things and events did also happen.
On the 15th of July, I went to Tony’s birthday dinner where we ate a lot and had a LOT of fun. It was held at the Lotte Hotel La Seine buffet, which I’d never been to. A lot of people went to the dinner. It seemed like he invited everyone from the older grades and a few from the younger. Overall, it was a fun experience and I’m grateful that I was invited.
I also renewed my passport. I had been putting it off because, from how my mom described it, the process would be extremely tiring and frustrating. She said that she had to wait in line for two hours while the temperature was really high. Overall, it sounded like a really hard thing to complete.
Of course, I had to do it sooner or later, so one day I decided to go to the passport office and renew my passport. It wasn’t as bad as I figured it would have been. Apparently, air conditioners had been put in and on the day I went, fortunately there weren’t many people there. (At least not an overwhelming amount. ) I managed to finish the first step which was turning in my passport and getting my pictures taken in a mere 30-45 minutes. I was extremely relieved.
After about a week, I went to the office again to pick up my renewed passport. This time, I was able to do the second step, which was actually getting the passport. It took only 10 minutes. All I can say is that I was extremely lucky. 😂
Then, on the 31st of July, I went to Charming’s birthday dinner. I first arrived at her house and we hung out there with other friends for a few hours. Charming’s cousin Minn, a friend of ours Oak, and I scared the hell out of Charming with a few confetti bombs.
We then left for Pepper’s, the restaurant, at around 6pm. There we ate many different kinds of foods. However, I was very disappointed when the tacos I ordered were served to me an hour after I ordered them. *facepalm* The tacos were delicious though. In the end, we had a lot of fun and I’m also really grateful that I was invited.
Those were the three main events the occurred during the summer, although there is one more thing I want to write about.
I had a lot of time to myself and I thought to myself, “Hmmm, BTS is good and all but… maybe I should give other smaller groups a chance.” So, I started with Blackpink, then, BIGBANG, then iKON, then SHINee, and lastly Seventeen. I’ve become official fans of all of these groups, including BTS of course. So now I can call myself an iKONIC-VIP-SHAWOL, CARAT, BLINK, ARMY. Yup, you heard me. I’ve also gotten into solo artists such as Sunmi, CL(originally from 2NE1), G-Dragon(originally from BIGBANG,) etc.
I’ve learned to keep an open mind for KPop and I already have plans to check out other groups and solo artists.
Overall, this summer has been relaxing and still fun. I really enjoyed being able to stay in bed most of the time. Now I think I’m able to go back to school in a good and confident mood, though, I can’t promise I won’t have the same attitude. Heh heh.
