Blah blah blah

Just got back from church, at a cafe now eating breakfast with mom. Nana is having a church committee meeting and dad have year-end meeting so he couldn’t join us today.

Went to watch Planet 51 with my sister yesterday, it was okay. The normal animation stuff. The plot is quite generic but some parts are really quite funny. Overall, it’s about 3.5 out of 5. Saw the Avatar movie trailer again, can’t wait for it to come out! 😀

I’m not really following my to-read list. I’m now rereading my YA (young adults; I always think this is a ridiculous label) books like Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead ( which is way better than the ridiculous twilight series) and Hawksong by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes. The good thing about these books is that it is so easy to read! I can finish about two books in one day 😉

Okay, food is here. Have a good day! 😀

Aftermath

So, exam’s over and my phone magically fixed itself. Life is good haha! Went shopping on tuesday with Char but didn’t buy much cuz there wasn’t any interesting items. But I bought books though, finished one already and currently reading ‘The Book of the Dead’ by Patricia Cornwell. Not bad, quite intriguing. 2012 was not bad. Awesome special effects.

Went out with Manda today, watched ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’. Quite cool and funny in a quirky way. Bought more books, seems like I’m going on a book spree! I bought ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith. So awesome, can’t wait to read it haha. Along that note, I can’t wait to watch Zombieland.

I’ll probably dragged my sister to watch with me. Gah, so many movies I want to watch. Daybreakers, The Legion, Avatar (saw the trailer during 2012, awesome awesome awesome….and possibly Alvin and the Chipmunks 2 (Love them since I was a kid. Especially now that the Chippetes are featured in this movie). Sounds like it’s gonna be a fun holiday!

P.S: I am so happy that I don’t have to tag my entry with anything related to ‘exams’ anymore. Booyeah!

Tumblr

Weight

Everyone seems to be obsessed about weight. Too skinny too fat…. I wonder where all these came from. When did weight became so closely associated with beauty?

It’s funny you know, from what the media and my family said, I should be dieting my ass off right now. It’s not like I don’t want to, I really do want to lose weight. But sometimes I wonder, what for? To look good in clothes? To be healthy? To be happy? Those reasons just sound a little…bullshit to me. Being thin doesn’t make you look good in clothes, sure it makes it easier for you to look good but trust me, I’ve seen a lot of ‘thin’ people who look horrid. Healthy? It’s not a guarantee. You can be fat and be healthy (Really. I can go on about this but I don’t want to). To be happy? Really? You kidding me right?

Does it make me a hypocrite if I said I really want to lose weight? I still don’t know why I want to do it though, I think mostly because I want to look better. I don’t know whether it would make me healthy, I don’t know whether I would be happier about myself that way. As for being able to wear things and look better in it…possibly. My style is still evolving though. At the moment I’m into the whole casual, basic style. Last year was dressier and trying out crazy stuff. But that’s the fun isn’t it? Always trying out new thing.

I don’t know how long this would last, my discipline is not exactly the best. I know I should not even be thinking about this, it’s nearing the exams after all (Oh God, the EXAMS. Don’t get me started on THAT). I know that once I get back to Indo I want to go gym everyday and really run instead of just brisk walking like I usually do. I don’t know, probably know I can just cut down on food I guess. Eat more veggies, it’s good for the brains (?).

So…wish me..luck?

Well, that was bad.

I totally couldn’t accomplish anything today. Didn’t even study much and I doubt I could remember what I’ve studied today. It’s so frustrating! I can’t get sick of studying, I still a month left!

If only I wasn’t so stupid in my first year, then I would have put in much more effort in my studies. If only I have done so, I wouldn’t have to worry so much about my CAP now. It’s so infuriating, to realise that you can’t apply for the things you want because your CAP is not good enough and it’s your own bloody fault. The sheer amount of work I need to put in just to pull it up it staggering, and even then I don’t know whether it will be good enough.

You know the feeling of mediocrity? I hate that. I hate it when no matter how much effort you put in you will never be smart/pretty/beautiful/good enough. That someone can just waltz by and do everything you just did with a snap of the fingers. And it will be ten times better than anything you could ever hope for. But that’s the way of life isn’t it. There will always be the bigger fish. Some people are just born to be a star while others…others just hope that someone will notice their shine.
