So last Thursday I set three tasks for myself to complete.

I only completed one. I feel like such a failure! Made a video and uploaded it today. I wasn't even gonna do that! But I received my prize from a friend of a friend on Youtube.
As you can see, I was super excited. The guy enclosed a letter and asked me to make a video response and take a photo of it. So I did.

Got my hair trimmed. Cut my fringe cos it has been covering my right eye for ages and my right eye actually feels half-closed. So yes. The hairdresser thinned my hair out so much that my hair volume has been reduced by half. No worries though, it'll grow back in no time. I will get my mangy mane back. She hacked off about three inches when I only asked for a trim though. Doesn't a trim kinda mean just one inch off the length? I even specifically asked for just one inch off the length.

Ranting about my hair is done. I like my fringe though, had to cut an annoying curl away at the side. Satisfied with the results.

Having a ham and mustard and cheese sandwich. Mmmmm...nom nom nom.

Got a new job. It's as an administrative assistant, pays $6 per hour and the hours are 8.30am-6pm every Monday to Friday. Good stuff. This pays so much more than my current job. And training is provided too, which means that I will be making less mistakes. And that means, I get scolded less!! Yippeeee.

Do you know why I have been blogging more?

Cos for some reason I feel quite empty inside. There's hardly anyone to talk to most of the time. And that's why, I turn to blogging. Really, I should get back to writing so I can really spill my soul. But oh well. It's hard starting to write again. Used to be able to write for hours on end but now my hand cramps after 10 minutes. Dammit.

Hmm this post has been long enough. I shall stop here and maybe go get ready for bed.

Nighty night. x

Sometimes, don't you just feel so helpless? There are times, when you watch someone go through a particularly tough time in life. And you just can't do anything give them the best advice you can and just pray that they'll come through fine.

There are times when I just want to jump into their shoes for a little while, long enough to fight their battles for them and then jump back out. Just so that they don't have to suffer that much.

Fact is, I can't. They will have to fight their own battles. The choices they make will be their's and their's alone. Ultimately, it's their life and I really can't force them to make the choices that I feel is best for them.

Love is a funny thing. I believe in universal love. Essentially, you love everyone. Doesn't mean you like them all the time, but you love them all the same.

So you know who you are. (I know you read this thing) I love you, and I hope you make the 'right' decision. Do what you think is right but make sure you think it through. All the best.

I Wants!

Just wondering around on Youtube, watching ShaneDawsonTV2, when suddenly I stumbled across this.


The plushies are so so cute, and the tote bags and wallets look so amazing too. :)

By the way, I like Kit and Jae best for the plushies. And a Diego tote bag and wallet set would be just spiffy.

My birthday's on the 1st of August.

Got the hint yet? :D

Today marks the first day I decide to get off my butt to finally get on to doing the surveyor job.

It all sums up in one word: Ouch.

I deserve a trophy for the pain I had to go through. Could hardly stand straight cos of my back. Eh? YOU try to carry a ginormous bag and a binder file full of paper and walk up and down a 13 storey building for three hours. For my efforts I got a quarter of the quota done. A FREAKING QUARTER!

I am not going to be able to finish this job by the deadline that is for sure. My $180 are crying out to me... "Please Amber! Throw us to the job agency! We want to save you the pain and suffering, just sacrifice us!"

I might just take their advice. But then, another good shot on Sunday.

Here's hoping something drastic happens to me which renders me incapable of doing that job before then.

Oh Hello!

I just realised that I have two followers! I'm not too sure if they've always been there, or if I just didn't see the thing on my dashboard.

Hello anyway. Both of you know me already so let's dispense with the formalities. :)

Sore throat is getting better. I can now eat crackers without pain!! My life currently revolves around food and sleep. It's way to primal. I have to get out more.

No money, no time!

OK. Things I will accomplish no matter what by next Thursday:

1) Make a video that has some effort put into it.
2) Take a picture with my Nikon D5000 outside the house.
3) Go on the swings for at least 15 minutes. Unless some poor kid is waiting his turn. Then I can wait.

Right. Three things should do it. It's not like it's a Herculean feat or anything.

Got a job that I didn't really want. It's as a freelance surveyor. Basically, I have to go house to house trying to successfully interview people. I will have to interview 120 homes in two weeks! The job doesn't even pay all that well. Thank goodness it's only for two weeks. But for these two weeks I'll have to work really hard.

Since I'm talking about my job, let me update you on what's really going on.

Remember my business developer job? Currently I work three full days a week. Since it's part time it really pays peanuts. ($5 an hour excluding lunch hour). So I'm considering really just going full time. Might get a higher pay. :)

Also I'm doing home tutoring. Just one student at the moment. Can't squeeze in anymore.

All this hard work WILL pay off.

I have a sore throat.

That is all.

I Want My Powers Please

Everybody likes to think they are special. Agreed? It is generally agreed that each and every human being is a miracle. The complete random-ness at which the sperm seeks out the egg, the specific level of nurture and nature that can only happen to you. There is a very high chance that while there are so many of us, none of us will be exactly the same.

We are unique. Just like everyone else.

I like to think I'm unique too. When Harry Potter came out, I was actually sorely disappointed when Dumbledore forgot to send me a letter on my 11th birthday requesting for me to report at Hogwarts for the next school year. I would have made a good addition to Hufflepuff.

After giving up on my powers developing at 11, I decided, instead to wait for my mage powers to evolve. Being fairly certain that I was a weather mage, I waited patiently. Afterall, the powers normally manifest in mid-teens right?

Wrong. As you can see, I'm still here. And the weather has not changed. Unfortunately.

Right. So I'm not a weather mage. Don't worry! There's the Xmen! Maybe I can teleport just by looking at a photo of the place. Like in the movie Jumper.


I'm still waiting for my X gene to mutate and manifest so I can have my powers. Maybe I was too immature before. But I am pretty sure I'm ready for my powers now.

Any day now. It'll happen.

Just you wait and see. :)

Oh dear...I haven't been updating much but I have been real busy.

I assure you I am very much alive as you can see.

Now here is my explanation why I am so busy. You'll see why very soon:

Monday - Interview/Work/Me-time
Tuesday - Swimming (if I'm lucky), Tuition, Me-time
Wednesday - Work
Thursday - Work
Friday - Work
Saturday - Tuition, Family time
Sunday - Family time/Friend time

See? Also, the computer has had a virus and is still going VERY slowly. It's pretty shit to be honest. On the laptop at the moment. But seriously, admit it. If the computer is going at snail's pace, would you WANT to talk about your day?

Thought not.

Awwk I'm sorry. I shouldn't have been so flippant. But life has been so hectic! I am supposed to have lots of time but I have no idea where it all goes! See, it's just like how I budget everything out with my money, but then it all seems to disappear.

Obviously not in a great mood today. So yes, till we meet again, stay happy and safe yea? I still need people to read my blog :)
