Goodness, I love this picture. So white and fluffy. Initially I wanted to choose a lilac/blue point Birman to bring home because their points are very light and their body is mostly just plain beautiful white fur, but my mum insisted on Cooqee because she has more ‘colour’ and ‘pizzazz’. Haha.
Anyway, I haven’t blogged for a week y’all! This is outrageous. I am the most horrible blogger on earth. Well, at least I’m not as bad as someone who abandoned hers for nearly a month hehe.
Putting that aside, life is hectic right now. I cannot pass through a moment without getting depressed and stoic whenever I think of my assignments. 8 major assignments. And I have one essay PER WEEK for Malaysian Studies. For 14 weeks. Just crazy dude, crazy.
And I have 3 term papers. One paper = 15 pages. And that’s excluding the title page or the references. Please tell me, how am I going to crap 15 pages of essay? I can easily do that for a research paper but term papers? This is roadkill. A route to suicide. I. Must. Pass. And. Ace. This. Semester.
Why? Because my mum promised me this gorgeous tiara if I do so, and you know my weakness with tiaras – the high quality ones, mind you. I just don’t get it that some brides would wear ugly cheapskate tiaras, don’t you people have any taste? Or at least, eyes?
That aside, I pasted a list of my assignments on my wall next to my bed, so that I will see it everytime I enter my room. So far, my lecturers are awesome and I hope they’ll stay that way till I graduate. And be KIND (I’m not saying generous) with marking our assignments. Please. Last semester, they went berserk penalizing my research paper, I almost died.
Classmates are getting more serious. But it’s the same bunch of people (and more) so I’m okay, not dying. But I do enjoy Malaysian Studies more than I would have expected. Serious. Ping Ying, Kai Lee, Christine and Vanessa are seriously so funny and loony, it’s impossible to fall asleep talking to them. My lecturer is pretty weird, by the way. She is really really random and just plain weird. But it makes her class a little funny. Mostly it’s lame but funny nevertheless.
I’ve also been watching way too many movies this year. This is probably the first year in my life that I’ve watched more than 5 movies and it’s only March. Before the sem started, I got to hang out with Sabrina after 2 years of not meeting and we watched Percy Jackson. Really cool. Kiddish, but cool.
I went to watch Under The Mountain while waiting for my dad & bro a few days back. Super lame. Please do not waste time.
And Alice in Wonderland with Yazzy :) Yesterday was How To Train Your Dragon in 3D with Chiew Yi and her friend Voon. Awesome awesome awesome.
And Nine with my mum. And others which I have forgotten.
Anyway, I think this sem will be more taxing than the previous ones. We have so many things to do. Conducting workshops, social experiments, interviewing people… And a lot of people changed. So I cannot guarantee that working in the teams that I have would be rewarding but there’s a first time for everything right?
Somehow, I feel that I’m being selfish but I do wish that some people would just stop being so insensitive and think about others rather than themselves. I know I can be very self-centered most times but honestly, these people are in a league of their own and it’s so disheartening to see bonds just slipping away. Sometimes I wish I can just throw everything aside but I really really treasure my friends and the relationships we have. I just hate that people really disregard these minute things because it’s not beneficial to them or that they have no time or nonsense like that.
It’s really depressing when you gradually see that the people whom you used to talk to like there’s no tomorrow treat you (and others) like you’re nothing but a speck of dust. Overlooking small details like just stopping to say hello or starting small talks. Everyone is busy in their own way with their own problems and work, but that’s not the reason for neglecting the people who care about you and the people who are around you. It’s the effort that counts, even if they’re small.
The world is changing so fast. It’s hard to find people who are truly what they say they are.
Eh, I didn’t realize I’ve rant this much. omg this is embarrassing.
Okay, back to work.
On a lighter note :
Hahahaha ‘ekspresi tak leh blahh’
Cute rightttt :F
I. BARELY. BARELY. FREAKING. PASSED.
Honestly, I’ve never gotten so low for a subject before in my whole entire life but I don’t care, I passed I passed I passed. I don’t have to see that subject ever again, don’t have to resit, don’t have to repeat, don’t have to go @___@ at the notes again, I somehow miraculously bloody passed the subject.
I passed Motivation & Emotion.
I know I’m being extremely PATHETIC to the core for being so happy, but I am more towards RELIEVED that I passed. I have been stressing about it for the whole exam, I had 0 percent of confidence of passing because I wrote absolutely nonsense for the essay and I left out a whole chunk of question. But Alhamdullillah, I passed and it’s all that matters.
I can start 3rd semester!
The coursework marks really pulled me down a whole lot because of our hypothesis and the whole results section is wrong. So you can just imagine how would that have affected our research project, along with the emotional drama that went on behind it.
But you know what, I passed.
And this semester is going to be a long, busy one.
Thank you thank you thank you.
… was amazing!
I loved the Cheshire cat. Always had, always will!
And I think I’m the only one who adored the Red Queen. I always am the weird one, liking the evil people. I guess opposite attracts eh? Good attracts the bad.
I think it was because Helena Bonham Carter (the one who played the Red Queen) has been my favourite actress ever since I saw her in Sweeney Todd a few years back. Alice was really good too. And the Mad Hatter! Honestly, this is the best version of AIW, and trust me, I’ve seen a fair share. The effects were great and the story was mind uhm.. blasting.
Thank you, Yazzy for the superb night out! My first semi-night movie!
I’m watching Nine with my mum next Monday. I AM SO EXCITED. And somewhere next week, I’m joining a bunch of people to watch AIW in 3D. Oh yeah!
Anyway, sorry for the lack of updates! This is what holidays turn me into. A lazy monster. Well, not that lazy, considering the things that have been happening recently, just not that active online for some private reasons. Sorry, but I do check my mails, blog, FB (almost) everyday.
I just wanted to post up a picture of the Cheshire cat and be done with it. Guess I got a teeny carried away? I guess that’s a good start, I really have so much to blog about! I wanted to spend some time dedicating a whole post to AIW and the versions I’ve seen, oh and the ice-skating post about Vancouver 2010!
Anyway, thank your lucky stars that there are no emo rants about ‘OMG I am going to fail and then kill myself eeeyah’ post.
That’s because I rant it to myself in my mind, silently going bonkers.
Off with my head.
:F to you,
:F and you.
Oh My God.
I love Kara DioGuardi. She is my new favourite singer.
You must listen to Happiness and No Boundaries.
Major major major love!
Anyway, here’s the lyrics for Happiness, it’s written by Kara herself. That’s one of the major reasons I love her – her lyrics are all very meaningful and she is simply an awesome singer!
Happiness by Kara DioGuardi
*Sorry if it’s inaccurate or incomplete, I couldn’t find a complete one. It’s either there really are none, or that my Yahoo!/Googling is bad :P So, I played it on repeat and improved the available lyrics.
A4a) Identify and describe three motivational principles associated with personality characteristics. (6 marks)
(Or something like that)
I left it blank. And I tried to come up with something to crap for about 45 minutes but I just can’t. I don’t even know how to crap about three motivational principles. I knew one of it was control but I don’t even know what are the points under control.
6 marks confirmed gone.
And the rest under that question was just pure utter bullocks.
And my essay… I came up with my own theory of learned helplessness and my own story for reactance theory. I don’t even know for sure if it’s called reactance or reactant theory, for that matter. I actually concentrated on the Debbie girl story more than the theories itself or what was her deficits, God knows what that means.
Halfway through the second half of the questions, I started manually calculating possible marks and what must I get to pass. Seriously, I don’t even bother wishing for an A anymore, I would be lucky to even get a B. All I want is a pass.
Argh. Now I’ll be in paranoia mood, waiting for Sunway people to call and say..
Well, I don’t know what they’ll say but it would not be good for sure.
I mean it’s a completely different story from IP, I somehow felt that at least I can scrape through IP and I surprisingly did quite well in the end but for M & E, it just.. sucks.
Oh bummer, I’m in such a negative mood these days. I think I even screwed up on my essay in PBS. I started crapping about how dogs differ from wolves in barking with all the reinforced response behaviours and indirect selection and socialization population instead of the frequency of barks. Hell, I didn’t even know that the journal mentioned anything about barking frequency. I only read that dogs bark longer and deeper (or something like that) in provocative situations. I didn’t even write about that in the essay but I wrote it as a point on the question paper.
And I wrote 4 pages of nonsense for that. 4 pages. Who the hell writes 4 pages of nonsensical stuffs that seem to eventually run off-topic?
AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH. That would be me, I guess.
Stress stress stress stress.
*groom groom groom groom groom*
P/S : Considering the fact that I’m going through superspeechslur, I spent minimal time typing this. Whee.

You cannot imagine how exhausted I am.
Never in my entire life have I been this tired.
Just approximately 14 more hours to go till a full mind-body-and-soul rest.
