I am at a stage in my life where I am feeling happy. College has been, well, meh, things with Wazir are great, the family's okay... I know I haven't been updating, but really, I haven't been in the mood to blog at all. So many times I opened this page and stared at the blank, white box, but nothing came out.

This week was pretty good.

Jolene phoned me yesterday from Bristol, Yew Sun a few days ago from Manchester, and Joanne last week from New York. I saw Yen on Friday and we had a good talk. Trish and Marlyn invited me for a sleepover last night, but I didn't go. [I had some work to finish. It's was just one of those things where you want to go, but you know you shouldn't. :( Next time, girls, okay? It's my final semester and I need to get serious.] It's great when old friends keep in touch. I feel loved. <3

I got my hair cut yesterday. This is, however, not a brilliant picture. I look so white and pasty because of the flash.

Today Mum and I went to this nail spa to get supplies from this woman and I got to practice doing a manicure on one of her customers. Unpaid, but good experience anyways. Got lots of supplies, which cost a bomb. But looking at them make me happy. My toolbox is incredibly full now. :)

I got tagged by Shan a couple of weeks ago, so here it is ::

Current time :: 8.43pm

What are you wearing? :: Tee and shorts.

Name something out of the ordinary on your desk :: There really isn't anything interesting here, just the desktop, laptop, books, and magazines.

Current favourite song(s) :: When you tell me that you love me.

Last thing consumed :: Rice and fish.

Last phone call received :: Wazir.

Current annoyance :: Nothing really, except that it's Monday tomorrow. :/

Plans for the rest of the night :: Watch CSI re-runs and sketch some layouts. Sleep. :)

I tag the following people :: Lazy la.. Well, anyone. Do it if you're bored and you want to. :)

Really, what was the point of that meme anyway??? Lol.

Oh yea, it's Kah Ming's birthday today, and Yew Sun's tomorrow. Hop over to Sun's and show him some love. :)

Of morning classes and sleepy-ness

It's only the end of my 2nd week back at Cenfad and already I'm sleeping 4-5 hours a day. To some of you that may seem like a lot, and to some it may seem like very little; but I think it's too little. I come home everyday feeling so exhausted. Plus, it's been raining heavily all week -- imagine the massive traffic getting out of KL in the evenings!

This morning I had Dickie's class. I was half awake, and his lecture made me even more sleepy. Classes which involve a lot of talking really should not be scheduled for early mornings. Meh.

Anyway got a pleasant surprise during my break -- went to the cafe and heard someone call out my name. I admit that at first glance I didn't recognize them, but that's because of my tiredness, really. It was Yee Teng and Iphin; juniors from Cempaka. It's kind of funny seeing Cempakan juniors -- really, I lost contact with most Cempakans after I left that school. But it was nice to see them. :) Now I'm not the only ex-Cempakan on Cenfad campus. :D

I've got quite a lot of work for this weekend -- have to document my site analysis and make a model of my site. Got a headstart last night on the analysis as I have to take it to the shop to print by Saturday afternoon, as shops are closed on Sunday.

I'll be going to my dad's this weekend. Hope everyone has a good weekend. :)

Happy Valentine's Day

Yeah, so I'm not really one to celebrate the overly commercialized Valentine's Day or anything, but to those of you who do, have a great day. ;)

I have no plans for today, apart from dinner with my dad. Wazir and I will go out another day.

I love you dear.

Fireworks

There seems to be a great deal of fireworks and lion dances happening at Mont'Kiara these few days. I suppose it's to mark the end of this Chinese New Year. Happy Chap Goh Mei, you guys.

I tried to take a few pictures but I've got shaky hands. :(

This was last night at the Plaza.

Err. Yeah. This is a very warped-looking Desa Sri Hartamas, because I couldn't keep my hands steady. :P

Visualization

11 February 2006 3:02 am 0 comments

I just realized something. As hard as I try each semester, I never seem to get more than a B- for my Design Studio class. I've taken this class 3 semesters at Cenfad and my grade has always been a B- or a C+. For most of my classes, the grades increased slightly each semester, seeing as I probably made a few improvements. But this one is always stagnant. It's sickening.

But yea, design is difficult. Design is so subjective. If I can't do well at such a small college like Cenfad, imagine if I were studying somewhere else. Gosh. The thought of it is overwhelming.

A talk with Wazir today made me realize why I can't seem to do well for this class. I can't visualize crap. Sure, I can sketch; I can draw. But only if the object is directly in front of me. I can't visualize what an object looks like; without having to think real hard. I can't drive well because I can't seem to visualize and remember roads. I've been to the chiropracter like approximately 10 times and I couldn't direct Wazir there today.

Dammit.

Simple pleasures

Name five of life's simple pleasures that you like most, then pick five people to do the same. Try to be original and creative and not use things that someone else has already used:

1. Love. Makes the world go round.

2. Watching tv and snacking in the middle of the night with my mum.

3. Lying in bed snuggling with Wazir.

4. Lepaking with friends.

5. Taking time off to work on crafting.

And I tag :: My new friend Ah Ling [I just realized that she's done it], Kei Li, Sun, Audrey, Sonia and Shuen.

I can't believe it.

In a blink of the eye, my 5 week holiday has ended. I have to head back to Cenfad this Monday, at 9.30am. And I just found out that I have to attend prayers from midnight to 3/4am Monday morning. The inhumanity!

So, let's recap all that's happened over the last month or so.

I had to find a site for my studio project next semester. My father and stepmom got married. I had a few real clients and made some money doing manicures. I bought more materials and worked a little on my polymer and jewellery making. I downloaded lots of Family Guy, American Dad, Drawn Together, Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars on the laptop. I met up with quite a number of ex-Cempakan classmates. I spent a lot of time with Wazir.

All in all I had fun. It's sad that my lazing around has to come to an end. :P

Anyway, Chinese New Year this year was not too bad. I got more money due to the recent wedding and the expansion of my family, lol. Spent the 2nd and 3rd year of the new year at Genting with my dad, stepmom, sister and err step-uncles, step-aunts and step-grandparents[??]. It was really crowded, but still, a nice change from the extreme heat that's engulfed KL lately.

I'd better be getting along to write my site proposal. It's going to be back to college and lots of course work very very soon. Have a great weekend you guys. :)
