in a notebook with an orange marker

A week of college has flown past and I'm already living one of those ever dreaded Mondays again!

College last year was without exaggeration a living hell, but this year was supposed to be different...Well, I admit that I didn't exactly have visions of myself bounding around the place jobless, but I most definitely didn't expect to feel the way I do now either.

Right now I'm sitting in my class room from last year which has sadly been converted into a computer lab which is yet to be used. It feel weird scribbling down a post in my notebook with an orange marker which happens to be the only piece of writing equipment that I possess at the moment, sitting in a blue swivel chair still covered in its plastic. What feels weirder is that I'm doing this in my lunch hour. Shit, have I turned into one of those kids who spend their free hours sitting in a corner of the campus writing in their journals?! After a bit of thought..what surprises me is that I don't exactly mind being this person. In fact I kinda like the idea of being this pensive, brooding, intellectual type. I have no clue why though.

I've noticed that I like being asked questions and that I like knowing the answers to them. I feel like I'm aspiring to be a walking, talking encyclopedia. I know that that sounds a bit crazy..but the truth of the matter is that I like knowing what everyone else doesn't and most often than not, I do know answers to some of the vague-ass questions that I've been asked..like what the average price of floor tiles are..or where Falkland Islands (sometimes pronounced fu*kland by some people who have no clue about geography!) is...or what the difference between a martini and a margarita is..OK that question wasn't exactly vague but I was asked that in the 10th grade!
So you see..I kinda like being this know-it-all..and by 'all' I mean all the stuff that people don't usually know about. I'm sort of envisioning myself right now in this knower-of-all saadhu type costume and it is soo not a pretty sight!

My hour at the net café is almost up..which explains my absence at most of your blogs because what I really am is a poor student type who cannot really afford to sit for more than an hour typing away at one of these computers which are used by god knows who to do god knows what! (I think you'll all get what I'm talking about right?!)

You know what? I get what ur saying about the knowing the answers to random questions! I love knowing TOO!
I mean i dont have any fantasies abt being a know-it-all but I like knowing answers to some unusual stuff that the general public doesnt know.
For eg. I love enlightening people on how black and white are NOT colours!

I totally understand what you mean by what those computers are used for thing. I have always felt that the keyboards in these cafe's should always be used with gloves cause you know what people do on them. Frankly enough, I don't like anybody else's fingers touching my keys.

I'm the quiet type too but the difference is that I think most of my posts up in my maths period. I don't write them down because I despise writing with a pen in my hand which in turn I suppose is because of my weird style of holding a pen. Computer labs aren't a lot of fun in here either. Our school boasts of being the only school in town with Wifi but they don't even let the most senior computer students like us use the internet. What the hell do they want to do with all the Wifi when it isn't even supposed to be used?!
