Ramblings

Okay, originally, this post was supposed to be about how biostats killed my brain (it did)…but then I realised that the last ten (?) posts of mine in this blog are all about exams, school, brain death, etc etc. So I thought ‘How boring!’ (Okay, so maybe these weren’t the exact words). So I set off to think of something new to write and so far I came up with….

nothing.

-__-lll

Hmph. I never claimed to be much of a writer anyway. So I’ve decided to just write about whatever pops up in my brain. Which is mostly ramblings. Hence the title. Anyway, I’ve recently discovered that my cousin have a blog! I was just browsing through, she mostly wrote in Indonesian, which got me thinking, I haven’t written anything in Indonesian in this blog! Pretty weird, considering I am as a matter of fact, Indonesian.

But no, I’m not going to write in Indon. It sounds/looks weird! Honestly, I can’t think of the last time I wrote an entire paragraph in Indon, probably back in primary school when I was still studying back there. I guess that’s just me. You know, being Indonesian, a lot of people expected me to join the Indonesian Society in my Uni but I didn’t. I never felt the need to!

Some Indonesians, I’ve noticed, only socialise with other Indonesians. If so, why do you choose to study overseas? Isn’t the purpose of studying overseas is to meet new people, form a global network (etc etc, not gonna talk about it). Maybe they are just looking for a sense of familiarity? I guess I’m different… I mean since I’ve been here for about 6 years, so I guess I’ve integrated into the society here? You’ll be surprised at how many people actually think I’m Singaporean haha. But I still consider Indonesia as home though. Oh and don’t get me wrong here, I have nothing against Indonesia, I love my country and I’m proud to be an Indonesian. This paragraph is just me wondering about the attitude of some foreign students here (I told you in the beginning that I would be rambling didn’t I)

On other news, my phone died (AGAIN). I can’t even turn it on for more than one minute. I think there’s something wrong with the battery, so I’ll try buying a new battery. See if it works.

Wow this post is getting long.

Damn phone. It is seriously pissing me off. The new battery better work. I can only go buy it after Monday though. Another new reason to look forward to the end of the exams.

Okay, can’t think of anything else to write

おやすみ!

P.S. One of these days I need to write an entire post in Japanese. Probably Monday, before Japanese exam, for practice’s sake. [stats exam is from 9am to 11am and Japanese exam is from 5 pm to 7 pm, so I have six hours break -_-]

Gah

I’m sick of the internet. Really, I am. For the past 1 month (!!!), cuz of the exams, the only thing I’ve been doing to entertain myself is the internet. So no going out, nothing. I haven’t been out of my university grounds for at least a month (yeah, perks of being a foreign student who live in school -__-)

So yeah, I’m really sick of the internet. I just want to go out again, feel like I’m part of the society again, eat food that is not from the school canteen. And I really want to go home and be with my parents and sister again (and Mosh, my dog. He’s such a sweet little thing [Manda, don’t argue, he is really cute. Just cuz you don’t like him it doesn’t mean he isn’t]). I miss them so much. Really looking forward to the December break.

Oh exams, won’t you just end already?

P.S: My cousin is getting married today. I’m laughing hysterically cuz my mom is complaining that she have to dress up and stuff when all she wants to do is stay at home and read a book! Ha! One good thing about having exams now, I guess. Me and my mom both dislike attending this kind of events.

2 more to go!

Forensics exam is over! I was a little scared cuz I didn’t study these past few days, but it turns out just fine 

Only left stats and Japanese on Monday… I hope Prof Cook will be nice this time and give us easy questions! Gah, can’t wait for exams to be over 

Exam?

Gah, this is what happens when you have two and a half day break in between exams after having 2 papers in 3 days….you take a break.

Haven’t been successful in trying to study today. Painted my nails, surfed the net, lusted after some items, study a little….

At least we’re halfway through the exams! The dreaded cell bio is over and so is eco. Forensics is on thursday while biostats (which I totally am dreading now cause I’ve forgotten most of it) and japanese is on monday.

Can’t wait for exams to be over soon!

Oh dear lord.

My brain is dead. It is beyond dead. It went so far past death it is now reincarnating

That’s right people, my brain is reincarnating

Yays! All my reports are done!

Sigh, my exam starts on saturday……GAAAAGH

Okay need to cheer myself up (and anyone who might read this thing)

Poor Merlin…..From Disney’s Sword in the Stone, which was awesome. Another one from the same movie below

Man, can Archimedes laugh or what?!

And I’m addicted to this song

I love that movie, can’t you tell?

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnd finally, the ultimate song about no worries *hints* (I think I can still remember the song word-by-word). Epic

90

This is obviously going to take a long time

*sigh*

Tumblr

Okay, I’ve succumbed (and I’m totally brain dead and I STILL haven’t finish my papers. I obviously suck)

anyway, back to the point. My tumblr account!

I’m completely enamoured by this girl for the Sartorialist

There is just something really awesome about her outfit. Combining the soft top with the military feel shoes. The juxtaposition is just too cool for words. I wanna try dressing up like that

This is my take of it….

Leather and Lace

Though I don’t think I have such items in my wardrobes. Ah well. I’m really into shirts now. Why does threadless have such nice shirts???  I’m also sorta wanting to try skirts, like the one below

Isn’t it pretty? Anyhoodle, took a break today and it was great. I guess I really needed it.

But exams are coming so full steam ahead!

P.S I’m playing with the image borders, whaddayathink?
