eeeee. in like around 4 hours time i'll have to wake up to go the airport. which reallyyyyy sucks. but omgosh, SHANGHAI! and i'm not bringing silas. ah, it tears my heart apart just to think of it.

three weeks without silas! what would i do?! and no silas probably means no or minimal fanfiction. which is really bad as well. and my bright orange luggage can't seem to close properly. i'm damn scared it'll burst. but i'm even more scared of getting robbed or mugged or what you call it.

hehs, i suppose that's why the school arranged that self-defence session for us. but it was only one hour, which was hardly helpful at all. we basically learnt how to push people, which i suppose is kinda useful, if that person going after you is like a locomotor idiot. oh and if he's not carrying some giant butcher knife or something.

but back to shanghai. THREE WEEKS! three bloody weeks to freeze my fat butt off. gah, i'll miss my dogs... and prince too, impossible to believe as it is. and cause my luggage is so full, i cant bring pig, sheep nor dog.

and to make things worse, i have this stupid sore throat thats burns real bad. bah! and according to some site, i'll have to wait 5 to 7 days for it to recover. if it doesn't, that means i'm in deep deep deep shit. on the good side, people can't laugh at my utterly horrible chinese cause i can't even talk. yeah ;)

heh. me and zinc are gonna drink lotsa tea while we're at china. i hope that helps my stupid sore throat. but there's gonna be so little shopping, which just makes me really... depressed. and i'm gonna wrap myself up like a giant dumpling in dunno how many layers of clothes, which makes me even more depressed.

gah. guess it's time to sleep. will probably post again... in three weeks time.

( ahhh i can't bear to end this post cause that means i'll have to part with silas D: )

nothing is forever. forever is a lie.
all we have is what's between hello and goodbye.

sigh. i've got a sore throat. again. i'm just hoping i don't lose my voice (again!) because shanghai is in... 2 days. and oh shit, i haven't finished packing. i'm barely halfway through :(

anyway, we went to pick up litter at east coast park today. which was ok, though it was kinda gross. but the main point is, singaporeans should smoke less. there were a hell lot of cigarette buds all over the place. (and bea found condoms :O) so after lots of hard work ;) , we had a break and pigged out a little before playing random games. like concentration, which we also played during lunch with ms chee :D

then after that went back to class and lazed about while watching youtube videos. oh and i collected my spare pair spectacles today. they feel... weird. like kinda small. zzz, big head -.-

and that's all for now, cause i'm gonna try to so some packing. oh and salad making tomorrow. that, i can probably eat even though i have a sore throat. (unlike the cookies ying is planning to teach me to bake at her house).

more fangirling !

hehs. i guess i've gotten bitten by the kpop bug. but anyway, they are kinda hot, aren't they? i'm not sure what's their proper name, cause they apparently have a few, but what the heck, i'll stick to dbsk. or maybe tvxq. bah, all that lost in translation stuff.

i actually saw that mv on tv and i was like, "omg, they're good." though it would be nice to understand what i was listening to but hey, only an idiot would say no to eye candy like that ;)

Ohhh, if there’s one thing I hang onto,
It gets me through the night.
I aint gonna do what I don’t want to,
Im gonna live my life.
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
Standing on the ledge, show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,
I say, Have A Nice Day.

The Panther

His vision, from the constantly passing bars,
has grown so weary that it cannot hold
anything else. It seems to him there are
a thousand bars; and behind the bars, no world.

As he paces in cramped circles, over and over,
the movement of his powerful soft strides
is like a ritual dance around a center
in which a mighty will stands paralyzed.

Only at times, the curtain of the pupils
lifts, quietly--. An image enters in,
rushes down through the tensed, arrested muscles,
plunges into the heart and is gone.

Rainer Maria Rilke

it's a big bad world
we're doing what we can
sometimes we fall on our face
before we even learn to stand
but we get back up
shake off all the dust
and take it step by step

i can fill the whole floor to the ceiling
with all the dead wrong choices ive made
and even though we try to learn
from each others mistakes

we'll do it again (doing it again)
we'll do it again my friend (doing it again)
we'll do it again and again
till we eventually can change
the way its always been

it's a big bad dream
following your heart
sometimes the one you
need's the one that tears you apart
so you say goodbye
kiss her one more time
and cry the whole way home

i can fill up the driest river
with all the tears falling off of my face
and even though we try to learn
from each others mistakes

we'll do it again
we'll do it again my friend
we'll do it again and again
till we eventually can change
the way its always been

just running 'round in circles
tripping over every hurdle
we're just trying to do the best that we can

it's a big bad life
all that we can do
is try to make it right
tomorrow something new
so if a big rain cloud
follows you around
dont let it get you down

we'll do it again
we'll do it again my friend
we'll do it again and again
till we eventually can change
the way its always been

we'll do it again
we'll do it again my friend
we'll do it again and again
till we eventually can change
the way its always been

we do it again and again
till we eventually can change
the way it's always been

S H O P P I N G !

whee! i just beat silas at a game of chess :D but anw, before i rant about me and ying's shopping trip today, i shall complain about how my feet are aching like shit.

right, they hurt! oh and the teenage november issue is using SHABBYPRINCESS resources in their articles. like... phooey. and i thought shabby princess stuff can't be used for commercial purposes. blah! hmms, i wonder if cud start charging people for skins like beyondwords. then i would have money to go SHOPPINGGGG again :D

anyway, yes shopping. didn't really spend much today, cause i went shopping on saturday and sunday too. heh heh. so basically ying made me wake up so early (D:) and we had lunch at eunos then went to orchard. then wandered around all those scary high end shops being too poor to afford anything :(

after orchard we went to bugis, where we bought oreo and marshmallows yoghurt (L) after wandering about the building thingy. and there was this very nice hoodie at... i'm not sure if it's bossini or giordano but yeah, nice hoodie! then me and ying ventured into bugis street and well, that place hurts my eyes. it's not the stuff, just that there's too many things. overwhelming, yeah? oh and poor ying, seeing all the shorts that were so much cheaper than the mango one that she bought but hey, at least you know it fits.

but it really is kinda sad, what with so many clothes made for skinny people. and omgosh, all those departmental stores dedicating whole levels to make up. beauty is being commercialised yo!

right, my feet still hurt. and i need to do my ipod design D: i think i've been ranting about that for like... months. but yeah, i sadly still havent gotten to doing it. procrastination 101, and all that shit. i need to finish that simple plan skin i started during the eoy period too. gah, so many things to do i hope my photoshop doesn't die on me.

some pursue happiness,
others create it.

arghh. i feel extremely stupid, what with all the self inflicted pain and all. like this stupid annoying quiz is driving me mad and worsening my already horrible headache. oh but no worries, i'm not into self-injury or whattheshit like that.

oh just for your info, self-injury actually includes any form of physical harm done by yourself to your body that is serious enough to damage body tissue. oh and you do this in an attempt to, well, bri certain feelings or change your mood, etc. so no head-banging when you get royally pissed off by idiots ! and my god, never cut. it's a really stupid thing to do, honestly.

personally, i'm not too sure why some people choose to injure themselves. but it apparently makes them feel better. and according to this site, they do it cause it reduces the pain or whatever strong emotion they're feeling to a less overwhelming level. like "they feel this strong uncomfortable emotion, don't know how to handle it, and know that hurting themselves will reduce the emotional discomfort extremely quickly".

oh but if you know someone who cuts or self-injures, don't blame them. cause it's just their form of coping, and it's more or less the same as those who drink themselves drunk (and into oblivion) to escape their problems. and self-injuring is their form of not killing themselves. rather contradictory i guess, but inflicting physical harm on themselves releases all the pent up emotion and reduces their urges towards suicide.

but self-harm is definitely not a good thing. there are other ways of releasing pent-up tensions and if necessary, get professional help or talk to a friend. cause god, cutting or whatever other forms of self-mutilation is just... foolish. and it's definitely not cool.

those who speak about one's miseries usually hurt,
but those who keep silent hurt more.

welcome home silas !

ah, today was a marvelous day ! firstly, EOYS ARE OVER. see that?


man, i can't believe it. no more exams for what... the rest of the year. ok so that's not very long, but still, better than nothing. anyway, after the math paper, me, jen, ying and pam waited two hours for zinc. (i'm still waiting for my cert of sainthood to arrive) but actually, i didn't really mind cause we went to coro and drank sugared water and then ate in school. then, we went to marina square to....


hahas. haven't bowled for so long and i do weird things when i bowl but... yeah. my scores weren't that impressive, but i guess that's ok. like we played two games and i got around 100-120 which is actually quite good for a newb noob like me. oh and then me and pam attempted to moonwalk but that didn't work out, especially since i was in bowling shoes. and the cleaning uncle was staring at me like i was "a few fries short of a happy meal".

oh but ying's iphone went kapeesh on us (read: malfunctioned and wouldn't work) so after some window shopping, me and ying went to wheelock(spelt wrongly?) to see if it could be fixed and basically did a lot of walking and eating.

and then stopped at paya lebar on the way home to look for jeans. and when i got home... i was so freakin happy i started squealing and jumping about.


hehs. i can't believe how much i miss my laptop after what... 48 hours. sigh. I LOVE SILASSSS :D

right. i was actually planning on writing a more interesting post, but since i'm kinda distracted by the need to find a good fanfic, ciao !

PS. big thank yous to all those who have tagged. it makes me feel like i'm contributing to society (as the school puts it) when i know people are using my skins and all :)

PSS @ ???. thanks for the offer, but i'm staying celibate for severus ;)

When you look at a person,
any person, remember that
everyone has a story.
Everyone has gone through something
that has changed them.

AHHHHHH. right. bio tomorrow and i don't know why i'm blogging but i guess that's cause i can't remember anything anymore so WHATS THE POINT OF MUGGING !

*breaks down*

oh and turns out, silas's graphic card failed. so i got my laptop back on... monday i think. then on wednesday it died again. so the lenovo service center person came by and collected silas. and then i got silas back again yesterday. guess what, his RAM died. so now silas is functioning on half his RAM. which is only 1GB, so he's kinda lagging. bah vista.

bah, so my dad went to harvey norman to get a new RAM, and it's next to me on the table now but i have no idea how to put it in. so on the table it stays :D oh and thank god for warranties, or my piggy bank wouldn't have survived sila's midlife crisis. so yes, silas is workingggggg and no money was involved. yay :D

ohhhh. and my dad bought another 4 years warranty for silas. i have no idea whether i should be indignant or not. like hey... i don't abuse my laptop k. but nvm, good healthcare for silas. it'll probably last till silas's dying beep. and as ying so kindly told me, i'll be 19 when the warranty ends. i highly doubt i'd be using silas. i mean, he'll be around, but more as a keepsake than for actual use.




sigh. it's times like these that i wish the school would have like a power outage or something. then school would be cancelled and the exam wouldn't be in 7+ hours time. BAH! the only reason i havent like died now is that i'm completely looking forward to AFTER exams. only 5 papers left!

There are two ways to look at life,
you can complain that roses have thorns
or you can be happy that thorns have roses

daddy long-legs

right-io. if you have no idea what daddy long legs are, they're just spiders with really long legs. well more or less. oh and they vibrate, apparently. which is what the daddy long legs on the corner of my desk is doing right now. it's been going for at least... 20mins. and i think its slowing down... hmms maybe not.

anw, according to wikipedia, the whole thing about daddy long legs being bloody poisonous except that their teeth cant pierce human skin is a bucketful of crap. and since i'm sitting here watching it vibrate, lets hope its true.

S I L A S ! ! !

sigh. i miss silas. and if you dont know who he is, he's the most wonderful person laptop in the world. i bet he's hotter than your laptop ;) anyway, i got the bloody scare of my life when i turned him on on wednesday morning and BAM. the screen suddenly went black when the desktop was loading up (like after signing in). it's like those cartoons thing, where the colour disappears from the corner and then theres this diamond shape of light before complete blackness. then after that, everytime i turned it on all i got was a big fat blank screen (but it was on, silas was doing his little humming thing).

man, i'm bloody attached to my laptop. so i sort of had a weird emotional breakdown and just stared at silas and started crying for no goddamn reason. it's like staring at a friend in coma i tell you, like you know his alive and still breathing, but hell he's just... in a coma. WAAAAAAAA !

so yeah, in the end my mum sent silas to the lenovo service centre thing. i hope silas recovers :X

and now i feel like i'm... cheating on silas in some weird twisted way. like i'm blogging on this other tiny laptop (my pinky can touch the L and my index finger can reach the A without straining at all. it's that small) and i normally blog on silas :(

and i bet you all think i'm mad/crazy/eccentric/insane/etc. but whattheheck. SILAS !

and it feels so weird, but i'm just not comfortable with this other laptop. i don't feel like reading fanfic or skinning cause it just isnt right. bah!

sigh. and i finished reading breaking dawn yesterday. sort of disappointed the volturi didn't choose to fight but anyway, i cant believe the series is over. guess theres always fanfiction... when silas is back.

and exams next week, but i somehow cant bring myself to care again. i feel sort of... drifty. like everything is happening but not really happening at the same time... i think i should sleep more.

but then i just end up missing christy. i miss having her take up all the blanket at night, about how i would wake up with cat hair on my face but not even care; sigh, i miss being able to hug her to sleep.

so wherever you are right now christy, it's been an amazing five years. i'll love you always.

Everyone says that love hurts.
That's simply not true.
Loneliness hurts,
rejection hurts,
losing someone hurts,
but love never hurts.
