It's often rumoured that those who can stay inside the room all day possess either extreme mental fortitude or mental illnesses. The room itself is so lethargic that most people spend their time outside. And more so because there is no wifi.
The most notorious bully in Mr Eli's home is Food quality. Ugly in appearance, horrible in character. Simply an incorrigible kid. When I first came here I was beaten up like a dog by him.
Nonetheless, he has been getting slightly friendlier over the years, but instant noodle of various kinds still remain our best friend when we cannot take Food anymore.
Another child in here one simply can't forget: Study. Study is at heart a nice kid. She tries to be nice and welcoming, but still, at the bottom of our hearts we all know we don't like her. Nonetheless, everyone tries to be her best friend in one way or another, otherwise we would not be here, in Mr Eli's home.
Studying can indeed be nice and interesting sometimes. But for most of the time one would not be too overfond of seeing her.
I don't like studying, I'm befriending her because I have a scholarship. So as much as I try to, I always have some antidotes to protect myself from being overwhelmed by Studying (which can be spotted here and there on my tabletop)
Cleanliness is another friend that we wish we could have in our home but we couldn't. She comes as quickly as she leaves and i have only seen her 3 times this year. She escapes after every single attempt to clean up the place, and never to be found again until the next cleaning session.
So where do you escape to with all these awful friends hanging around?
Most common solutions include:
1, Watch anime/youtube/movies.
3, Simply don't stay inside the house until roll call.
To add on, throughout Mr Eli's home, the cleaning aunties and uncles here are very nice people. They always say "hi!" and smile to you. Sometimes I have some nice little conversations with them when i walk past them along the corridor. If not doing their work, they are often resting on the wooden benches around Mr Eli's home.
Most of them come to boarding very early in the morning, and often leave at around 4pm. They talk a lot, and very likely you can catch their conversation at the ground floor even when you stand at fourth floor. And they are quite fashionable if you don't see them in their usual green working clothes.
Aside, we also have many friends from outside, like this hornbill trying to build a nest on one of the trees or this squirrel eating a mandarin given by a guard.
