January till November 2013

I’ve neglected this blog for sooo longggg.

As you can see, change of WordPress theme woooo~ I still want to make a banner, but I’ll er, figure that out some other day XD;

I’ve also added a picture of myself gasp!! It’s because I’ve finally gained confidence in myself haha never happening gotten a lucky shot of myself with decent sized eyes and a decent face shape LOL. That and the fact I’ve already posted a few rare shots of myself here and there, and I’m like ah, whatever.

Timeline-ish entry, with as much details as I can remember.

Oh and er, my keyboard is faulty. I can’t type “p” XD; it’s all copy and paste. Ahahaha.. oTL ;;;

Why so suaaaaaay.

1. I have a limping dog.

For some reason, she started to limp and hopped about on 3 legs. It didn’t look like she was in any pain, and occasionally, I catch her walking on all 4 legs. It’s really not much of a problem (I hope), but it gets annoying when she doesn’t dare to climb down the stairs to do her business and ends up deciding that our bedroom doors/mum’s bed will be her new peeing spot.

She’s getting better now. She doesn’t limp now, but you can still see her favouring that leg. And the peeing thing.

She’s also quite a drama queen, so here’s a video of her doing a “look at me I very the ke lian ):” limp.

This was during the whole period where she climbed up the stairs to chase after my nugget meal, jumped up the bed for scratches and hugs, and jumped down the bed to look forlornly at my nugget meal on the desk. All on 4 legs. So really, her leg is fine (maybe just sensitive)

2. I have a broken doll hand.

):

The doll’s hands were wrapped together with the body, that means they weren’t individually wrapped up like what most would do ): I guess that’s why the fingers snapped. I don’t get it though. I’ve ordered from infinitidoll before, and they wrapped my girl body’s hands individually, so why didn’t they for this boy ):..

Also, one of his eye is smaller than his other eye. I’m sad. Am wondering if I should get someone to sand it open, but $$$$$ SOB.

I’m hoping for infinitidoll to send me a new spare hand.

3. I scratched my car.

I’m an idiot.

Thankfully, the damage wasn’t drastic, it’s not like the door couldn’t open up or you can see a huuuge dent or something. In fact, after scrapping away most of the concrete plaster off my car, you wouldn’t really notice it. Sort of. I guess. I don’t really want to send this sort of damage for servicing, but idk. I’m trying my best not to let my mother notice it hahaha /cough

I’m thinking of getting touch up paint.

On the bright side…

Exams are almost over!!!!

My tyre got murdered

And I only drove this car for exactly 60 days /cry

About two nights ago, while I was driving back home, some shitty metal rod/nail thing went through my tyre. I was in a rather deserted area at that time, well, there were like one or two cars every 15 mins or so, but it was deserted enough to have mongrels walking out from their hiding place to look at me. Believe me, it wasn’t very comforting to see them be so daring about it. Anyways, I stopped by a bus stop where there is more light, and idk why but I made sure that the lamp post near it had a security camera fixed to it. Just in case if something drastic happened to me, at least it got recorded down.

Also, before I continue, lemme just say that I’m very upset that I’m getting all these unfortunate things happening to me day after the other. From the mysterious jam on Friday, the plumbing system and lights in my house failing on Saturday, the electronic safe failing + the really shitty people in the concert on Sunday, to my taobao loot missing + dead tyre on Monday..

It’s the coke withdrawal.

Still waiting for my stuff to arrive so that I can start talking about happy stuff in my blog lol.

Significant happenings in my life:

I topped up for an iphone4s!

I figured it’s about time since the 3gs is getting very wonky. It keeps turning the volume up and down for no apparent reason, which scared me because I thought my headphones/sound system in the car had problems. And then there’s the huge lag + multiple crashes generally. My friends and I have been playing with Siri just for the novelty of it, and I guess Siri doesn’t understand Singaporean English lol. It understands us better if set to US English compared to UK English, but still not good enough. There have been a few amusing answers to our queries, but I think the funniest parts were all the mistranslations of our words.

I’m trying to cut down on my coke intake.

Gasp.

Random updates

Horseriding lesson is still as frustrating as ever

Went there with steel determination and fire burning in my eyes, all ready to kick the horse to make sure it trots. All of that went out of the window the moment the horse refused to budge after my first kick. And then I proceeded to act like a wimp and flapped my legs frantically while begging it to move. I’m lousy I know.

The instructor advised us to get a short whip orz. Stupid Bob and Rocky all your fault!

Karaoke was fun

Had a moment where we keyed in several old school Jrock Vkei songs. Even though I had no lyrics, Malice Mizer’s Syunikiss was sing-able. But omg no hiragana thingies for their kanji sfjkahkjhsdjkn.

And just oh so randomly, I spotted one of the tenimyu songs This is the Prince of Tennis and just keyed it in HAHA. It was surprisingly, fun. I feel this urge to key in random other songs from tenimyu in future karaoke sessions.

And it’s been a while, but hurray for the revival of Sendai Kamotsu songs in karaoke HAHAHA.

I’m really glad I made myself use the microphone in recent sessions. I realised how much fun it can be belting out songs, or when we’re able to sing together. Even if I can’t read half the lyrics LOL.

I’m still upset that I can’t do a vibrato at all, which is so so so so so crucial to any drama-mama song. My attempts at them are very lame.

I also want to be able to accomplish random rapping parts for some songs. SEAMO why your songs so hard to sing?!

Driving recklessly on the road as always

But I’m getting better at maintaining my composure and winging it if I take the wrong route. I’m getting a Swift! đŸ˜€ Green colour! No I’m not going to turn it into a watermelon LOL. But I will love to personalise it here and there! I’m very excited actually. Driving the current car is very difficult for me for many reasons.

I should start looking for GPS navigation systems..

I miss playing games

I really do.

I miss the addiction.

I can’t believe I’m harbouring stupid thoughts about wanting a PC just for gaming.

I refuse to boot Windows into my Mac. I’m someone who cannot deal with viruses at all, so I would like to have at least one computer that will last me for a lifetime. Plus if I could resist the urge to boot Windows so that I can have all the illegal free programs for school purposes, I wouldn’t just cave in because I want to play games.

Too bad I can’t use my father’s PC or laptop. He tinkered with them too much till I can’t use them at all ;;

Need. Aircon. Now.

I do not want to be one of those who act as if they are suffering the most (and thus you need to understand and pardon them for their selfish actions, and have to constantly ~massage~ their stupid ego), and I hope that in my entire life, I’ll never behave like one.

Different people deal with situations differently, but I think it’s normal for people to desire feedback and interaction from others no matter what. I would like people to show signs that I matter to them. A form of acknowledgement to my existence, what I’m proud of, and what matters to me. And if I could, I hope that whatever I do for my friends could make them feel the same sense of contentment whenever I receive such feelings.

I have seen people who ask directly for comments, and I think it’s fine. But when it comes to fishing for compliments and sympathy, it annoys me to no end. And it’s people like these that will make me feel like a hypocrite because I end up having the urge to do some fishing. And then I get very frustrated with myself for even thinking about it ._. I should just solve this all by having these people out of my life.

Now that I let that part out, I feel so much better.

All the air conditioners in the house broke down. The one that’s functioning the best is the one in my dad’s room, but even a fan is much better than that hot-air blowing thing. Just a few hours ago, the repairman for the aircon in my mum’s room came. After he fixed it and left, it gave off this lifesaving cool breeze for a few minutes before it went kaput again :/ I can’t wait for Friday to come where the repairmen for my aircon comes over.

In an attempt to take my mind off the heat (omg I’m dyinggggg I’m turning madddddd), I shall try to work on the rori meme surf taobao more /shot.

Lesson cancelled cancelled cancelleddddd.

Have some Matsushita Yuuya :’D

Surprise! No day 11 log! Not because he woke up, but rather, it’s an uneventful “nothing’s changed” day, so in a way, I’m glad it’s not as dangerously adventurous as the previous days. But well, still difficulty in breathing, fever, lung infection, ya.

I’m so put off with today. Was looking forward to horse riding, but first, the stupid bus broke down like in the middle of nowhere while it was heavily raining. I gave up waiting for the next bus and tried to walk along the bus path while trying to get a cab. And all the time I had this super angsty face going on lol. By the time I got on a cab and arrived there, it’s 10:20 already. And then the person by the reception?

“Huh? I told you lesson’s cancelled.”

The fuck?! Apparently she informed Ivory but didn’t informed me because she assumed we’re together. akjhsdfkjshdf so if I sign up in a 6 students class, you also going to assume that we all live together travel together sleep together issit?!

Lesson from 10AM got shifted to 4PM. That’s 5 hours of killing time. Even if we did want to go home or somewhere, the rain was too heavy to drive.

(Later on 4PM’s class was also cancelled because the training grounds weren’t fit for riding. RAWR.)
