Location revelation

Here is a recount of one of the silliest things I’ve done during my first semester at Uni.

It was a relatively sunny day following what was a considerably stormy night. I remember that it was a Wednesday because that’s the day that RUSU (The RMIT Student Union) has their ‘Chill ‘n’ Grill.’ I had planned to meet my friend, Huy Hoang so that we could chill by the grill. We had planned to rendezvous at an area I am known to believe is currently unnamed, that spacious synthetic grassy place with the huge pebble-y chess board. My class finished an hour or two before his so I was just sitting alone in the grass surfing the internet. About half an hour later, the smell of sausages beckoned me. I put my laptop away and just as I was about to stand up, I realised the warmth I thought I had accumulated just from sitting in one place for too long, stayed with me as I ascended. I stuck my palm to my face, groaned, and sat back down. The rain from the night before hadn’t dried out from under the grass since the night before. I texted a different friend of mine, Andy,  in an attempt to share my frustration and elicit some sympathy. Instead I was told to salvage my ‘JAFFY’ (‘just another f***ing first year’) moment. About half an hour later, Huy Hoang showed up and began to guffaw. Eventually he let me borrow his jacket to tie around my waist. Fortunately I didn’t have to do so because wearing it normally was long enough to cover what had been a ridiculous mistake on my part. Stupidity aside, I was very pleased that I have a wonderfully considerate friend like Huy Hoang.

Let me create a paradox by including the QR code that leads you to this very post. Relish as you will. It is placed in the location I was sitting and as I was taking this picture, I saw a lot of people sitting on the grass. Naturally, I was secretly wishing for last night’s rain to be as evil as them as it was to me but I’d like to think that I’m not really that sadistic.

You probably can’t see or scan that so here’s one that’s easier to look at:

Well I hope you enjoyed this silly, overdramatised story of me being an idiot.
