New Job!

Quite recently, well, it's actually two weeks ago, I had my first shift to my new job. It's in a gambling arcade just walking distance from the house here, which is great. And also, you don't have to do an awful lot. Mainly just patrolling around and cleaning the machines, making sure people behave, etc.

It's great! Plus! I get plenty of shifts! Which is good for money. My manager is nice, the colleagues are nice. What more can I ask for?

Sorry for this really short and really crappy post, but I'm so tired and don't really have the time. I have so much to dooo!!

Neurotic Mess

This is just so weird, but I think the toll of juggling work, schoolwork, and housework is taking it toll on me. My results were so disappointing.

So far:
Maths: 85% OK, but expected something higher.
Statistics: 50% Expected to fail that paper because of one formula I failed to memorize but still, totally gutted.
Health and Social Care: 54% Oh well, what can I expect if I'm not taking this subject as seriously as I should?

Still waiting for my English results. Apparently it's nothing impressive either. I have also been sacrificing little things for the sake of trying to get things done around the house and working. Things such as vacuuming my room, tidying my room, going on the internet, sitting in front of the TV, waking up late. These little things just get to you you know?

Took photos of the frost last week, but because I lost my USB cable, the pictures wouldn't be up for quite a while. Sorry.

White Lies?

Well everyone, I have news for you. I....

Have changed.

Big news. Everyone changes everyday. Your skin cells shed off, you lose a few milligrams that no one notices, etc. But this is a big change! And I've only recently noticed it. Like last week. And as most of you can tell from the title, it's about lying.

Yes, lying. I mean as most people would know by now, ('cos I wouldn't stop going on about it), I'm from Singapore and moved here last year. With great moves comes great changes I tell you, I s*** you not. First up, I've more or less stopped swearing. Now I only swear in extreme moods of anger, annoyance, and pain. Which is not very often.

Second up, my temper has kind of fizzed out? But really, I lose my temper less often I find. Or I lose my temper whenever there is something that is annoying me and is still there grating on my nerves. Like nails on a chalkboard. Ugh.

Something you shouldn't see on tv now, not with the recession.

Last but not least, it's lying. Not lying down on the bed. No no, I like lying down on the bed, especially when it's to sleep. I mean lying to people. Opposite of truth. Whenever I was in Singapore, before I came over, I wouldn't have minded lying to anyone (sorry Mommy). I could tell a lie straight into anyone's face and feel a slight twinge of conscience which is quickly smothered. But then I have now come to appreciate all the I have, and I have come to completely trust everyone and have gotten used to the complete trust people have in me in return.

Quite literally, I find it incapable to lie. Told a lie on Saturday, and it's still torturing me. Told another lie of the same sort today, and I'm at breaking point. Seriously, blubbering pile of tears. In simple terms, it can be solved by telling the truth right?

Wrong.

'Cos I've already made a pact with someone to not tell anyone else. I can keep a secret. Ask my friends. But whenever someone says something along the lines of "So hey, what is xxxxxx doing now?" And I have to lie, I feel so bad protecting that person.

From now on, actually, from a few weeks (days?) ago, I have decided to be the best person I can be. No lying, an occasional drink, definitely no drunken dancing, no smoking, (trying to) not swear. The works. Because when I die, I want to be able to know that I have died making something of myself, even though it probably wouldn't be visible to anyone else.

Talk about School

Today I went into school even though I didn't have any exams. Why?
For him. So that he wouldn't feel lonely while waiting for his exam to come on.

And also because Jordan's going into school for his exam too and it'll be convenient to get a lift down to school, study/sleep/talk in the common room, then get another lift home. How handy. Hee hee.

Cat's got to be fed soon. Cooking for just the two of us and doing the laundry and all isn't too much hassle. Just gets a little tiring sometimes. Now whenever I go to bed, I either conk out immediately, or just lie awake for ages because of the sheer amount of things going through my head. But surprisingly, I just keep going and going and going.

Good for me! Now I will have more energy to do even more housework. Quite surprisingly, this feels like playing house when I was young. Only in real time, doing real things. Remember that game? Where you may have fought with your friend over who is to be the man or the woman and no one wants to be the man? Where you sit and pretend to cook coloured paper and lovingly feed it to your 'husband' or anyone who is willing to entertain you and pretend to 'eat' it.

Yea, that one.

Ahh, good times.

Phone Is Back!

Yay yay yay yay yay! My phone is back and working again! Yes, while everyone else is quite obliviously going through their lives I've been trying to dry out my phone with the battery and sim card out, and a packet of desiccant sitting on top of it. All the while, trying to turn it on everyday when I wake up in the morning and before I go to bed at night.

I was such a nervous wreck without my phone. It feels like you're going out without any clothes on at all. And over here, you'd quite literally die from the cold if you do that. Yes! Phone is back, and me and Jordan have settled into a routine of sorts as to the cooking and everything. Which is good. So glad that I know I can cook to feed people when I have to. It is a lot more nerve wrecking to feed other people especially when you have such low standards of food as me. I enjoy good food but I can quite easily munch on a piece of dry toast and like it too. So yes. My standard is so low, a baby can crawl over it.

Exams are coming up! But I'm starting to be sucked in by the television. Without a doubt, Friends and Scrubs are my favourite sitcoms of all time. Classic. They are probably the only sitcoms that make me laugh out loud. And the characters are so lovable!

Now off to read manga comics before feeding the cats. ^___^ So glad my phone is back.

Still Not Fixed

My phone still isn't working! Sadness.

Wednesday, November 19, 2008

My Poor Phone!

My poor phone accidentally fell into the toilet bowl today! What a waste! And I didn't really know what to do, so being the idiot that I am, I turned it on and off lots of times. Then put it in rice. I only did it because someone on the internet said it'll work quickly when you put it in rice. But it was there for a few hours charging and still didn't work. Then I checked again on the internet and found I shouldn't be turning it off and on, or charging it.

I sure hope that now, with the battery and sim card lying out on the towel works. Don't see another new phone coming my way.

Guilt

Auntie Carol and Uncle Paul are in Singapore now and will be there for another few weeks. Which means, the cooking and cleaning and watching over cats and fish will fall onto me and Jordan's shoulders. Which is good in a sense 'cos it means we can learn how to deal with the 'real independent world'. But also bad because I'm not much of a stickler for responsibility.

Made my first meal last night and I was soo disappointed in it. Completely messed up the 'curry' which later just turned into some meat and vegetables in gravy. Well, it didn't taste all that bad, just, I would have liked it to be a success. Too little curry paste and too much water would be the problem. It's starting to get really cold now. I think I'll get Jordan to light the fire. And get dinner. Rice was put on more than an hour ago. Oops. Oh! And if Auntie Carol or Uncle Paul read this, have a great time alright? And we're doing well. Miss having meals cooked for us and calculating when to use the meats and stuff around the expiry date is really hard. Much harder than I thought.

Guess you have to be pretty smart to be a home maker after all! Go women!

Nick's Party

Can't believe I haven't blogged for more than a week. Here is a quick summary of what happened in the past week:

Had my HPV vaccination on Wednesday. That is, a vaccination against HPV which is a virus known to cause cervical cancer. Apparently your chances are reduced by as high as 70% if you get it. On the downside, it hurts so much and you have to get three of them. Each rumored to be worse than the previous one. Mine is still a little bit bruised and hurts whenever I hit something by accident. Oh, and there isn't any known long-term effects 'cos it's a new vaccination so I would know if anything weird happens to me in a few years time. To find out more you can go here.

VS
Had a huge (one-sided) debate with two of Jordan's friends. It all started whenever I said "I think PCs are better than Macs." And Mark (one of them) went "What?? Daniel! (another one of them) We gotta gang up!" And well, it's a start of the epic debate of PCs against Macs. So far, all I know against Macs is that MSN Messenger doesn't run the same on a Mac. And you can't play an awful lot of games on a Mac. But Macs don't get viruses and you can download Microsoft Office and things on it too. Gotta do some serious research. If not, how am I going to defend PCs!!??

Headed down to Nick's party and to sum it all up:
1) Went over, and mingled around for a little.
2) Ryan arrives! (late)
3) Listened to Proud Deering. They were playing life at the party for a while and then a DJ came on. Check them out here.
4) Had lots of plain coke.
5) Sipped some of Claire's coke with vodka.
6) Sipped more of Claire's coke with vodka.
7) Found out that pumping music is good to dance to.
8) Danced a little.
9) Sugar and caffeine rush kicks in, got into the mood, danced a little more enthusiastically.
10) Had some pear cider.
11) Danced even more, got tired. At around 11.30pm.
13) Left at 12am because me and Samantha are sharing a taxi home.
13) Reached home at about 12.30?

All in all it was so much fun what with lots of people. No, I wasn't drunk. Me drinking isn't wanting to get drunk as such, I just like the feeling of alcohol warming up your insides. I'm not really an alcoholic. *looks at the bottle of Jack Daniels in my hand and quickly hides it* Haha, only joking. Wouldn't want to be drunk anyway, what be being in a cab. Cabs aren't even all that safe nowadays. That was the most amount of drink I ever had in my life. Not really the life style for me.

It's getting so cold now and I attended the Remembrance Day service this morning. Was pretty good, just can't hear what the people were saying. I was wearing a poppy! *pride* It looks just like the one above. So cold! The winter is upon us! My fingers are quite numb as I now type out these words. Cold and darkness is depressing. Give me sunshine and warmth anytime.

Randomly, my feet feel really sticky and it's so uncomfortable! Can't wait to get my shower.

Now! Try to finish my Health and Social Care homework on Chlamydia and Asthma. :(

Ending with a quote from the birthday boy:

"Seventy people are going to my party, and each of them said 'Here Nick, I'm going to buy you a drink.' That makes seventy drinks! My liver is just going to crawl away and die!"-Nick Dornan (Oh Nick, I didn't get you a drink! So that's sixty nine drinks! :P)

Housework

I decided to do some housework on Wednesday before Ryan arrives and found out that:

trying to change bedsheets+hoovering the floor+two cats on the bed=two annoyed cats.

Yepz. But in spite of me lifting them off my bed so I could have fur-free bedsheets, they still lounge on my bed any chance they have. Look at the stubborn-ness here:This is Missy on the lower end of the bed. After I tried moving the bedsheets around, she still wouldn't budge. So,I covered her with the duvet. And she still didn't budge. She is one stubborn kitty. She moved when I took the duvet off her though.

Sonny, on the other hand, is more easily spooked so he ran off the moment he noticed me towering over him. He always lounges in the same spot on my bed. There:I changed my bedsheets on Wednesday, it's Saturday today and there is already cat hair covering it. Got to hoover my bedsheets or I'll be up sneezing all night.

It was Halloween yesterday and it was so much fun! Helped Auntie Carol cook up this big big dinner for Nanny and the aunts coming in. We had pumpkin soup, apple crumble, roast chicken, roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, and steamed veggies. All home made. There was some money in the apple crumble and I got 10p! Not a lot but still, it was fun. And yes! We carved a pumpkin! Look! I drew his face. ^___^ Ladies and gentlemen, meet Percy Pumpkin.This is the first ever Halloween I ever celebrated. Teehee. It was pretty fun.

Prize Day

Haven't been here in a while. Prize day was pretty good, apart from Mr Logan's (head teacher) speech. His speech just dragged on and on and on. Then again, it is an annual report.

I got a prize for getting second in Mathematics for the whole level. It was really just a book voucher for £6. Watching people go up to get the prize was good too.

Yesterday was me and Ryan's anniversary! It was one of the best days we had out, ever. First we hanged around Downpatrick where we got our lunches. I had a foot long sub with meatball marinara, which is The Best meat you can get. I only got a foot long sub 'cos it's on offer with £4 for a foot long sub with anything you want in it. If there is meatball marinara in Subways in Singapore, go get them soon! It's the best. But if you're afraid of mess, bring it home first.

Then we went to Ryan's place where we watched Nightmare Before Christmas,and Walk the Line.Those are really good movies and I strongly urge you to watch them. Walk the Line is about Johnny Cash's life story, which is pretty good. Viewer discretion will be advised for it cos there's lots of drink and drugs in it which kind of disturbed me. Nightmare Before Christmas is one of the best films ever, Tim Burton is my favorite producer.

Then we made a MASSIVE omelette with lots of bacon, mushrooms and cheese, followed up with fizzy drink and chocolate cheesecake which I brought from home for Ryan to try. He's heard so much about the chocolate cheesecake Auntie Carol makes but has never had a taste. The first spoonful had him hooked. :)

Great day yesterday! Here's to an even better week! It's the holidays and Ryan's coming over on Wednesday!

Stumble

I have found one of the most amazing things EVER on the internet. Stumbling. Yes! Not walking around and falling over. It's on the internet. And you download this tool bar after you create an account stating your interests, then after that you just click on "Stumble!" and they will Stumble you to a random website that concerns your interests. Then if you like it, click on the thumbs up button saying "I like it!" and it will save under your favorite pages.

Through Stumbling on Sunday, I have found lots of funny pictures. After weeding out the less funny ones, I hereby present you with The Top Two!

The difference between cats and dogs

Now I know why men lose hair...

The Stumbling has also brought me upon a few really funny comic strips. So here are two of them too:I just thought it might be nice to share this little bit of information with everyone!

Cat And Laundry..

Do not mix.

I was folding my clothes today in my room, on my bed. Cos I'm just too darn lazy to iron them. Besides, with the cold weather, I'm wearing my shirts under my jumper anyway so who sees them? Anyway, I left the clothes for a little while and then came back up to my room to see Missy lying around my clothes like a really really comfortable bed.

Now, I'm all for rolling about soft fluffy duvets and towels and stuff, but these are my clothes! And as much as you want to share the love, I don't really want your fur on my towels which I use to dry myself with. Silly as I am, I left her among my clothes purring away while rubbing her furry face on my towel.

Unfortunately, she got into a rather playful mood and started to sink her claws into anything that moves. That would be the shirts and towels as I flip them out to get them to spread out, and my toes.

Did anyone say "Ow"?

Well anyway, I grabbed my camera so you can all see her frolicking amongst my clothes and laugh at my unfortunate-ness. It really wasn't too bad.

This is her frolicking:And her sitting on her throne of trousers:Halfway through folding my clothes, I got bored and decided to give Missy this baby toy. Which is a smiling butterfly whose wings crinkle when you touch them and moves around whenever you pull the string. I moved it around a few times in front of her, and then sat back and take pictures while she investigated it.I don't think she quite liked it's smiling face. She must have been thinking this:

Missy: Ohohoho, a new victim. Bow and fear me! What? You're not scared? Why are you just smiling at me? *poke*
Butterfly's wings crinkle.
Missy: Hah! There! You have experience my wrath! Now tremble before me!
Butterfly smiles back.
Missy: Fear me, Dammit! *chomp*

And it goes on and on. I even got a video for you here: video

At the end I thought I could show you how she sinks her claws into anything that moves by waving the shirt I was currently folding but it didn't work too well. She left shortly after the video. The butterfly must have annoyed her with it's mocking smile.

End of the quiz! Started reading Death Note lately and it is so good! It's actually unbelievable. There are so many twists in the manga and the plot is so intricate it's amazing. I love the way the author makes you absolutely hate the bad person who is relatively normal and yet, love the good guy who would be classed as freakish in our society today.

Just realized I'm such a Romantic. Not as in hearts and flowers, but in the era sense. There is an era called the Romantic period. Poets such as Wordsworth and Coleridge as well as composers such as Beethoven lived during that time. The Romantic ideals would focus on the healing power of Nature and it has started to realize that childhood experiences could affect the adult. So yes, generally the hippies today are the modern-day Romantics. Only realized it there when a girl in the class said Nature was "Just a tree, or a bird". I shall emphasize on 'a'. Nature is not just a tree, or a bird. Nature is everything. Everything we have here, today, comes indirectly from Nature. Without Nature, we would be nothing. I find that there is nothing more calming than to have a pet plant and watch it grow. I had a little miniature violet over last winter and spring and I loved watching it bloom.

I'm such a hippy/Romantic. Call me a tree-hugger but I love Nature and that's that.

My rant is over.

Narnia!

Just posting this to prepare any of you ardent readers (yea right, like I have any), I borrowed the Narnia game off Auntie Alison, and I may be sitting in a darkened room cackling maniac style as I control Lucy and Edmund or whoever it is I favor through war with the White Witch. Teehee! Oh, the wonders of gaming. And I wonder why I'm anti-social when such a small thing can have me occupied for hours.

I lead a sad life. :P

Photos Are Here!

Finally, the photos are here. There are a few hundred photos and I don't expect anyone to look through all of them so here are just a few better ones. Not good, just better. :) Starting to plan Ryan's anniversary present which is good, and so far, it's coming along nicely. Teehee.

Photos! I took most of them. They are taken one day when Ryan was here, we went to the beach then to the forest. He took those photos of me.I sooo want a Pandora bracelet! The charms are so cute and really really cool. Go there to check it out. It is really really expensive though. Just the plain silver chain will cost £55, and each charm is roughly £19 now. Well it really depends. If there is 14k gold in it, obviously it costs more. Some of the charms costs a few hundred on their own! I never thought I'd be that into jewelry, but now I am! It's so expensive. Well, just save more money.

Bought exercise bottoms yesterday which is good, so I can strike it off my growing list of things to buy. Also bought an umbrella because I'm getting sick and tired of walking in the rain. Rain really depresses everything. And it's raining everyday. Like seriously.

Got to call in at work tomorrow to make sure that I'm having a shift this weekend so that I shall have money! Teehee.

Randomly, finished Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks. It's kind of explicit, but it definitely is a good read. Those war books have definitely changed my outlook on life. Now starting on a new book called Testament Of Youth by Vera Brittan. We studied an extract from that book and I absolutely hated it because she was so ignorant of the conditions in war. But I should still give it a try.

"Now let's stop this drivelly drivel and get on to more exciting things. Like Shakespeare!" *class groans* - Mrs Thorpe, another one of my eccentric English teacher. She's really nice and so funny. Best thing is, she makes Shakespeare interesting!

Work Tomorrow!

Can't wait for my work tomorrow. :) Auntie Carol says I can buy anything I want with my money. So far the highest on my list are:

1) Hole Puncher
2) Staples. Quite interestingly, the shops sell staplers and staples in a set but not staples on their own.
3) Exercise bottoms for Games
4) Campbell instant soup with noodles or pasta in it!
5) Cup noodles which I wouldn't feel sick after eating!
6) Bits and bobs for Ryan's present for 25th of October
7) Oh! And new jeans. I realized that my most comfortable pair of jeans has a hole which cannot be repaired. *sad* Got to get new pair of jeans before dumping that one out.

So far those things should be pretty affordable except maybe for the clothes. Can't wait to get my pay though. Tomorrow I will be braving a seven hour shift. *shudder* Hope I wouldn't end in as bad a shape as my first shift. I suddenly took to my first ever migraine headache on my first shift and had to bear with it in the steamy kitchen with the dishwasher rattling away. It reduced me to tears when I got back home and the migraine headache stayed for about two more days. Talk about out staying your welcome.

But! After my seven hour shift I get to do some retail therapy the next day. ^___^ Should be getting nearly £34 from tomorrow alone. Can't wait for whenever I get regular shifts like these. Sure, they take up my time to clean my room and stuff but still, it's great for independence and everything.

My room is in a pretty bad shape now considering I haven't changed the sheets in nearly or over a month and the tables and shelfs haven't been dusted in a few months. Don't even mention the little toilet beside my room. Haven't cleaned it in ages.

Which reminds me, recently, there have been tiny little slugs appearing on the bathtub every night (or day, depends on when I'm showering). Being terrified of slugs, the first few times I sprayed, or rather, drowned them in Cif liquid and then left them there. But night after night the slugs just keep coming! Which is really scary. I suspect they are the products of this one big fat slug that came into our toilet one night a few months ago. He/she/it may have laid the eggs there somewhere in the toilet. Those slugs have been an endless source of grief for me and each shower I scrutinize every surface on my body or whatever I am about to use just to make sure it's slug-free.

I hate slugs.

Slugs slugs go away, Never come another day. You can come if I'm not around, But you can be sure there'll be traps abound.

Oh gosh. Being absorbed into another media of entertainment that is not work is not very convenient. Though, very fun. Started on this book called Birdsong, which is on the reading lists for our A level English Literature. I never really heard of having a reading list, but according to the librarian, we do. That book is really really good though. After having read up on the war, I find myself appreciating everything more. Every little thing. The cleanliness, the clothes, the rest. Simple things which the soldiers wouldn't have in the trenches with shells screaming overhead and being fired at constantly. They had to literally live among the dead bodies, with huge rats, and be covered in nits and lice. Such is the degradation of the humans in times of extreme circumstances.

The gross injustice they suffered is terrible. What the newspapers publish is nothing like what they experienced. And worse! Sometimes the newspaper will publish and go on and on about the glory of war and then unsuspecting young men will sign up. Disgraceful. Young men are not always signed on willingly. Womenfolk are absolutely disgraceful during WW1 as well. I am disgusted! You should be ashamed of yourselves! Womenfolk in those days will give young civilian men a white feather. Sometimes not into their hands. A white feather is a sign of cowardice. Once a soldier who was on leave and wasn't wearing his uniform went to church, and a woman walked up to him and stuffed a white feather up his nose. Bully!

Then, after braving the effects of war, losing friends, perhaps a few limbs, some even their sanity, and experiencing horrors which will haunt them for the rest of their lives. After all of that, they are thanked by being integrated into a group of people who have no concept of what war is really like. People who think they understand, people who think they know best but actually don't. The false superiority imposed on them must have been unbearable. And what am I, a complete green horn in war writing about? Probably rubbish which people will skim through.

*rant dies off* Sorry about that, just want to prove a point. We're learning about patriotic poems and prose written during the war to stir in young male hearts the need to fight. Which I think is pretty pointless as well as really cruel. It's so cruel to mislead them into thinking war is all shiny buckles and neat rows of marching. No war is ever that neat and tidy. No one comes back swaggering about boasting about how many man they killed and how they braved the blood and gore. But there is this infuriating little man. His name is Rupert Brooke and he writes the most soppy poems about war and how it's all shiny. He was in the war too but he never got to live to see the full horrors of it. You see, he died of a boring ol' blood infection from a teeny wound. How boring. He'd have wanted to die in a more glorified manner. Like in combat! (fool)

You'd have thought war was heaven. I better end this. And if you got here, congratulations, I have no idea how you read through all that war writing but congratulations.

"People feel sorry for Rupert Brooke dying that young. But personally, I think Life paid him back, for writing such horrible poems."-David Park, my English teacher. He really did say that, much to the mirth of the class. Oh, how I love my English teachers with their own eccentricities. It makes the lesson really fun.

Busy Busy Busy

Past few days have been pretty hectic. The pile of work has, thankfully, shifted a little and so I only have one essay as well as a load of research to do for now.

Monday, I was at home. I have no idea what I did, but pretty sure I was busy. Then Tuesday I was over at Nanny's so was busy as well. Wednesday was the busiest of all.

There was my piano lesson, then while Jordan was having his piano lesson, me and Auntie Carol walked around this shop called Around the Pound. Love that shop, it's full of cheap dinky things. Got face cream which I really need because the wind here has been getting really icy and cold. Having discovered the horrors of wind burn last year, I didn't want my face skin to get to that stage again. So, face cream is a must! Then went to this thing called the Alpha course where they teach you about Christianity. It's actually pretty fun, get free dinner and pastry and stuff, then after that you get to watch a video which is like a service thing, then you gather up in little groups to discuss the topic.

Today they are having a games night..I really want to go, but I'm so tired! Those people there are really nice though, and maybe next week they'll have a games night again.

Weekend is not different, still busy. Going to Ryan's for the afternoon on Saturday, then church followed by work on Sunday.

Have I ever complained my life is too empty? Now I got my wish. My life couldn't be fuller than this! I have too little alone time with myself as it is! Give my alone time back people! (Only joking. I like the company of others too! Promise. I'm not saying this just because I'll see you people quite soon.)

Mario Kart!

Played Mario Kart so much today! It's sooo fun! Even though I'm completely useless at it. But who cares? I get last every single time and the only people I beat are the computers and occasionally people who make stupid mistakes.

Workload is still steadily piling up and I'm steadily depleting it. More or less anyway.

Off to do my work now! Sorry for this real short post. Will try to make up for it sometime! Byeee!

Shall Make It A Short One.

I am so so sooo into Fairy Tail right now. Nearly didn't finish my work between Fairy Tail and Nintendogz, I have barely enough time for anything else. Including Ryan. Yepz.

And he is a little bit peeved at me for devoting so much of my precious little time to comics and games. I myself have never imagined to have so much of my time devoted to fun and games. So this is the power of electronics. Wow. They sap my attention so much so that I can't think about anything else. Absolutely Amazing.

Anyway, got to go. 'Cos I'm going to read Fairy Tail online! ^____^

Oh oh oh! Wait! And my work place gave me another shift!! Next Sunday, from 1pm to 8pm I shall be working my little butt off. Yay! And I got £24.25 for the five hour shift I worked on the 6th of September. ^__^

Here's to my happy reading! (and here is a random quote because I can't be bothered looking for a proper one. I literally clicked at a random place on the page. So don't blame me if it is really out of point.)

"The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis." -Dante Alighieri

Oh-So-Tired

I'm so tired today..So I'll just talk more tomorrow. Hopefully will be going to bed soon.

Been busy doing anything but studying. Borrowed a game from Auntie Alison-Nintendogz! It's so much fun and I can't stop playing it. Also been reading comics which Greg lent me. It's called Fairy Tail and it's such a good read. Getting used to reading lots now. But, homework is piling up slowly and so, have to prioritize tomorrow. Yes! Tomorrow is the day I do work! (Yea right. Just watch me fail and come moping to this blog tomorrow about not keeping my resolutions)

Grrr...

The demon spawn are at the back of the bus again today because they were given a chance to get onto the bus first. Yes, I just said demon spawn. They were noisy again today. Or maybe it's because my ears have lost some of their hearing due to the high pitched wailing and screaming going on at the back for the past few days. Oh when will this ever end?

On a lighter note, pimple has ceased to look like an insect bite and has shrunk just that teeny wee bit to look like a proper pimple. Even better, I don't have a tiny dot of pus in the middle. And Ryan didn't notice it at all ^____^

I love my skin.

Sometimes I surprise myself with how self-loving I am. All that fuss over a pimple. But then again, it wasn't any old pimple. It was one which hurt!

Dropped Lilly (the Yorkshire puppy) by accident last night. I felt so bad! She jumped out of my arms while I was halfway lowering her down and from my hip to the ground, one of her little bones in her knee twisted right round. Ouch. Lilly was rushed to the vets and now she's got an operation done and has a pin down her leg. Hopefully she'll be in good health soon.

Gotta go up to Nanny's to see her now. And yes, also to appease my guilt.

Pimple Pain

News of the demon spawn, I finally had peace on the bus today. Their seats at the back were occupied by the big boys. Hooray for big boys! The demon spawn then went to the top layer of the double decker to spread their plague of noise to other innocent people. But since they have, in a sense given me the ultimate gift of silence, I shall graciously (yea right) retract their title of demon spawn. I'll call them first years instead. Which in my opinion, isn't much better. the bus ride was SO good today. Even had a little nap. Involuntarily of course. My eyelids just closed by themselves.

Yesterday out of no where came a pimple on my upper lip. Now, I always thought that pimples look like this:Well, maybe not quite as pus-y. Disgusting isn't it? But still, a raised tiny red lump with perhaps a little white spot of pus in the middle. My pimple yesterday (and today) was just a big red lump. Much like an insect bite and it's really sore when I touch it or move my upper lip too much. Don't ask me why I move my upper lip. I just do. Great! On top of looking ugly, my pimple has to hurt too? Why?!

Me! Eat healthily as much as possible, wash my face twice a day, and try to keep my skin in as good a condition as possible. Oh yes, I put a lot of thought into what kind of facial wash I buy. But why, my baby smooth skin? Why? Why have you forsaken me and grown little lumps, some big and red and to top it off, hurts? Have I not pampered you enough? Are you jealous of other skin which get facials? Well, I can't help it if I can't be bothered with a facial. I'll look ridiculous!

Come on! Do you really want to look like this?Like really, her face is blue!

On a happier note though, school was good. Though Ryan (as always) was late for school. It's not really his fault though, his bus is just very slooooow.

Damn. Now that my rant has fizzled out, I can't find a way to end this. Well, in situations of desperate needs, calls for desperate measures.

The End. ^____^
