Recession affects my school?

Is recession affecting my school? YES!
News about the price of library printing has increased because of GST on the first day of school itself. It didn't bother me until I went to the merchandise shop, wanting to get another pair of my kitchen operation uniform shoes because the one I bought which comes in a set from senior is way too big. The price increased from RM90.10 to RM134.40!!! How do I know the previous price? Because I went to ask about the price before my holiday. I couldn't believe it and the shopkeepers told me bla bla bla about the USD currency has increased and GST charges as well.

The thing is, GST has implemented one year ago. Why it only takes effect now?!
So I told mum about it and she says "Recession ma".

Some of my classmate bought second hand from seniors, some of them bought brand new one which cost almost a thousand and some of them got for free due to scholarships I guess. Bought mine from senior at RM380 for whole set. But if I were to buy an extra shoes for RM134.40, it means I will spend RM514.40. The knife set and the uniform is quite cute though. Studying in Taylor's everything is about money money money that make me spend my days there with constraints. Conclusion is if you are not a millionaire, don't study in Taylor's. lolol

First Day of Semester 2 in Taylor's University

I did not wish that my sem 2 to finally begin. I did not want to have stress and all the mental fatigue strike again. Apart from all of the complications that I faced in the previous semester, I want to improve in sem 2 as to become a more confident sociable person with effective communication skills by taking parts in some events. Well, that's the reason I registered myself as a Cross-cultural Crew even though sem 2 will be hectic. Chances of being selected is not known but I will try. I hope to get more exposure from it.

Returning to my unit in DK Senza with the balcony room rented out, it means that the door of the room will be closed forever and no more sunlight to shine through the common hall. The whole unit will be in dark if the kitchen light is not switched on. So more electricity used and more on the bills as well. My toilet has to be shared with 3 other person, whom level of cleanliness is not up to par as mine so the toilet has brown stains here and there after a month of my absence. Yucks. 

There will be no tutorials and lab practicals for this first week of school. So 11am is my earliest class today. I intended to go early to make payment for fees but by the time I reach it is already around 10.45am. I decided to wait for class as I do not want to rush. And finally back home at 6pm. 

It was an exhausting day after all. Siting in cold lecture theater and spending time in library for printing and panting after walking up the library stairs. I must exercise!! and I will make it a point to exercise tomorrow no matter how or what. I want to get back my running habits once again and I want to play badminton so badly!
