do you feel better now?

I'm sleepy now. Bleah. It is, as Ju said, lunchtime, and I haven't had lunch yet. Woke up so early this morning, the earliest I've been up in three weeks! I went to bed at 1am, woke up at 4am with a start, then went back to sleep until 6.30am. So now I'm sleepy.

Had breakfast with my mother, then I went off for a drive down the expressway. There's nothing like aimless driving to take your mind of unpleasant things. I drove all the way till the exit before Tuas Checkpoint, then looped back to Toh Guan Road via the PIE to get my car washed. I gave up washing the car myself; I'm simply too lazy!!! I would do another round of aimless driving, but there are things to be done, like the laundry amongst other things.

I have too much time, and too little activities to fill up my day. I'm a sadist, I want to go back to school. I want to be lost in the routine, mind-aching, back-breaking lesson planning and marking. GIVE ME SOMETHING TO DO, ANYTHING TO DO. Bah. I don't want to go out, that is leisure. I need WORK. I have to satisfy myself with things like tuition to keep my brain working. I read newspapers until my mind's numb.

Some URLs for your reading pleasure:

1/ No place in local universities. I particularly like the comment by crunchy_cucumbers, which basically sums up what I thought as I read the article. But actually the daughter quite poor thing larh, being born in the Dragon Year, always a downside to everything.

2/ A Theory on ABC's Lost. Got this off cowboy caleb's RSS feed thing (whatever it's called, I'm not familiar with the geek speak). Pretty well thought out! And satisfies my Lost craving. Cannot wait for Season 4!

3/ The Gender Genie. Do you blog? You might like to test whether you sound male or female based on your entries. Quite cool. Got it off huckerby's blog a long time back.

4/ Zanshin. I quite like this article, because it isn't really about Kendo zanshin, but zanshin in general.

Aaaaaand that's all for today, because I'm sleepy and I think I should go nap. Oh, and here's a song that I've been addicted to (read: playing non-stop) for the last few days. This is the 'original' version though, the version usually played on radios is the acoustic version, which is much more pleasant sounding. Though I'm sure if you listen to the following version a few times, it'll grow on you.

some random stuff

Before I start preparing for the dinner later, I shall write a quick entry. This entry will be quick for you to read cos it's mostly pictures. But I'm expecting this entry to take about ten minutes to blog. So!

First: Congrats to Godspeed for getting attached! Don't be crazy, I don't have sour grapes like Enginger. d= Your entry too sweet liao, I need to tell the rest of the world so that the sweetness will be diluted. LOL. And how can you not have told me!!! You idiot!!! I think I'll call you 6/6 Vision from now on.

Second: Had a JC class outing the other day. Uh, wasn't much of a 'class' effort. Six little momoks turned up! The rest were MIA. I heard Monkey was in Australia having some life-saving competition. As Ju said, "That is so JOCK!"

Pic 381: The four girls.

Pic 382: Me and my Baobei!! Haven't seen her since the last time we went to Holland V's Coffee Club. =D I love my Baobei!

Pic 383: Peter Parker and Mary Jane. Hehe.

Pic 384: A close-up of our own Peter Parker.

Third: Had a Bio field trip to MacRitchie the other day. Not that I don't like going on field trips, but I'm honestly not interested in looking at primary and secondary forests. Honestly. Like the tutor who brought us there, "I think this is just NIE's ploy to keep you hostage."

I fully agree.

Pic 385: An interesting adapation. The bio terms fail me.

Fourth: My class had the CME workshop thing yesterday. I only enjoyed myself at one point, which was to make a collage depicting youths of today. I felt like a damn nerd going around the classroom taking the pictures, so you better appreciate it!!!

Pic 386: My group's work. I quite like it. I collected the material, and my groupmates did the rest.

Pic 387: Like a flowchart.

Pic 388: Many many pictures.

Pic 389: The entire collage is mainly pictures of celebrities/models. The group was made up of all males and one female, I think. That's why!

Pic 399: Clean and simple.

Pic 400: I don't get the 'almost raped' part though. Something about relationships.

One of my classmates was browsing through the magazines the facilitator gave us during the second half of the lesson. Something on Reiki. Haha. I just thought it was amusing.

And now I'm running late. Oops!

visual dna

Ju did this a while back, and told me to do it. Well, I did one, but I didn't post it up cos I didn't like it. So I did another one just now. I'll put the two down just to compare.

Last time:


Practicum's over. Gotta move on.

Better Than Me

Latest single from Hinder. Sounds almost exactly like their last one. Haha. But I like it. Take a listen, please.

Yay one more week to go. Let's hope the application gets through and I end up somewhere I want to be. Now gotta think about what to get my girls. And my bio CT. And other people.
