Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag! October 15, 2007

Posted by The Truth in Im Allgemeinen.

Okay, not really. I’ve just moved my Kill ’em all – let God sort ’em out bag over to Germany.

So i’m in Trier again. For another 1.5 years. I just got back from uni where they are having the Ersti-Beratung for the newbies. Wasn’t it just yesterday that i was an ersti? So much has happened in the past year. And this year is going to be no different. A new Wintersemester, a new academic year – more importantly, a new beginning.

Everyone in the UK is showing off his/her new pad, a new house, with their friends – new furniture, new tables, new new new. Everything’s new. In Trier, everything hasn’t changed. Well, the pathway from B-Gebäude to the Bibliothek has been taken down for renovations of sorts. But apart from that, nothing much has changed. Everyone’s the same old friendly people – i sat at the philo booth just now and talked with some of the philos…they really believe i was captured and taken away to the Army because of my haircut…heh! It’s strange because i haven’t ever talked with the Germanisten, its always the philos and my closer friends, Pascal and Alex and sometimes Anna (although i don’t know if we’re still close friends.)

The uni is not so quiet anymore. It feels as though semester has already begun, only that the halls are full of erstis wondering Where The Hell They Are, and such. I haven’t seen any of my friends so far, although Alex did call to ask if i was going to Stammtisch tomorrow. Well…i should shouldn’t i? I mean, when semester reopens i’ll be off before 1am anyway, because i have a psychology lecture at noon. So i can’t afford to dick around too much. What’s more, i do like Stammtisch, as long as it’s not too awkward. Insiders will know the story, so if you don’t, don’t bother probing.

My room is as it always was. It’s quiet, peaceful and serene – in Trier, nothing seems to change. It’s unlike Singapore, when change is an aspect of life. You can go away for a few months and when you come back, there’s another construction site, another place with roadworks, more upgrading, etc.

Why can’t things NOT change for once?

Or maybe i’m just seeing the things in Trier like i want to see them, not as they truly are.
