Hello peeps, I am terribly sorry for the long absence; was back in KL and yeah, apart from the line there being terrible, I was trying to make the best of my short time at home.
Now I’m back here, I have to revert back to work mode. No more holiday jolly for me, no more slacking off. (Heck, who am I kidding, you KNOW that I am STILL slacking! :D) It’s been a week since I’m back and yeah, time really flies. So fast that it’s actually scary. I probably repeated this phrase over and over, time and time again but hey, you know that it’s true. This week had been HELL for me, no shit. I can’t believe I’m still alive. No doubt, it also explains why I’m freaking tired now, during the weekends. In fact, thinking about the coming week is tiring me already! Starting tomorrow, I have to really really push myself to work on my presentation! Or rather, the research of my presentation! I know, some of you will be thinking, damn! So late??? But I have to say, I work best under pressure. :S! As ghastly as that sounds, it’s kinda true. I hate doing last minute things but do we ever learn??? No! We never do, so since we can’t fight them, might as well join ‘em! HAHA! No, I’m kidding, of course we have to try not to keep procrastinating and doing last minute work but really, I simply…can’t find myself to work the other way round. I’m still trying though. Not going to give up that easily. 🙂
So a summary for this week:
– Had my first common test for Abnormal Psychology and Behavioural Modification on 30 June. Guess what? I studied the day before! HAHAHAHA! The paper was ok, I guess. I hope. IT BETTER BE!!! :O! Lol!
– Had auditions after that, for lunchtime performance! It went ok, but I FORGOT MY FREAKING LYRICS!!! I mean, it’s actually all in my head, but I panicked, and I went blank and I forgot! Thank GOD I didn’t start rattling off about somatoform disorders, hypochondriasis and somatization disorders or something!!! But hey! I’ll be performing on the 7th July 2010, around 12-1pm (if I’m not mistaken) so YAY! Hopefully I don’t forget anything or screw up! *prays*
– Had my Nursing Lab theory paper the very next day! :O! And guess what??? I STUDIED THE DAY BEFORE AS WELL!!! Slept at 4am, and continued studying when I woke up in a few hours time! Lol! Crazy, right?
– Start worrying about my elective. Like, seriously. 🙁
It had been a very intense week for me. So intense that I literally LOST my appetite, and almost fell sick. I was hungry at meal times, but whenever I think of food, I just feel like throwing up. I thought I was going to fall sick for real. But I’m still as healthy as a horse now (with the exception of being lethargic and what not); still don’t like the idea of food though. Sometimes, the thought of eating actually scares me. Is it because of the escalating stress building inside of me, and over a really short period of time? I think so. The day before my theory test, I was feeling all woozy, and sick to my stomach. Thank God I didn’t faint. I mean, imagined all the lost time I would’ve suffered from if I had fainted! :O All the time I could’ve been using to study. HEHEHE.
So anyway, yesterday we threw a surprise birthday party for Liza! ♥ I can’t upload the video I took yesterday, cause I uninstalled my iTunes, so until I get my iTunes back, I’m not so certain about plugging my phone to the lappy. ANYWAY, it was a TOTAL BLAST!!! Hahaha we really nailed Liza with deceptions all the way, and she was probably thinking, ah shucks, its my birthday but my 2 best friends are miserable. LOL! Trust me, I’ll try and post the video up by tomorrow, if my iTunes is back, and you will see what I mean! :D! Will also explain the whole storyline alongside the video! HEHE!
♥ Our dysfunctional family ♥
Latest addition: Hexi and Sarah. Married. Hexi having an illicit relationship with Ihsan, his grandnephew. Gosh. What is the world coming to?
The husband and wife trying to kiss under the ‘cherrytoe’. And there’s me, kepoh smiling in their romantic picture.
I seriously have NO clue what my daughter-in-law thinks he’s doing. Trying to act like one of the Cullens perhaps. HAHAHAHA!
The sisters! ♥ Eyma MIA!
We had a wonderful dinner at Popeye’s. The conversation was awesome, the company was great, the food was excellent! All in all, a perfect de-stress Friday night.
TODAY, we were supposed to watch Eclipse together. The whole dysfunctional family! Hmph! But Azrin stole Namira to watch earlier, Eyma and Liza were unavailable, Ihsan was busy, so it was down to Afiq, Hexi, Farhat and yours truly.
But Farhat couldn’t make it all the sudden, and it was Afiq, Hexi, and me. The three of us. We sort of like, stared at each other, and went like, well…this is it! HAHAHA! But heck, we went for the movie ANYWAY! Hmm, I’m thinking if I should do a review on the movie. Ah well, since I’m on it, might as well! 🙂
Well, I’ve read all four books, and back then, I was quite…hooked on the series. When I start reading, I tend to delve into the story/plot quite intensely. And I actually liked it in a way because it was all a fantasy, yet Stephanie Meyers had made it seem so real. It was almost as if she was trying to create every girl’s secret dark fantasy, something we know that will never surface in the real world. But as the book progress, it got pretty…dark. I then realized, it was more adult fiction-ish. It was getting more inappropriate for young kids. I mean, yes, I understand she was trying to portray strong, intense, and perhaps true love, even if they were 2 people from 2 completely different worlds. However, kids these days are easily influenced, they don’t even need a vampire boyfriend to do silly things! I’ve r
ead and heard too much of teens these days cutting themselves or jumping off buildings (literally) mainly because of they broke up with their girlfriend/boyfriend. Ok, I understand the whole depressing issue, really, I’m not all evil you know, but I don’t see the point of you hurting yourself because of him/her. Because in the end you suffer, not him, not her. And why am I side-tracking here! I should be talking about the movie! Anyway, yeah, Eclipse. Not bad, honestly, they’ve made themselves funny (I’m talking about the script) but it’s sorta very mushy. Ok, I get it, it’s a love story, a rather interesting one, but it’s got lotsa kissing scenes! I like the fighting parts, :D! And I think the wolves are cool :D! But hey! Don’t think this is a bad review alright? Personally, I think it’s a good movie for you and your other half to watch maybe during a Friday DVD night in at home. Grab some nachos and make yourself cosy for the movie. Of course, nothing beats watching it in the theatres; the sound effects and what not, but I’m sure it’s going to be just as good. 🙂
I think I will actually look forward to watching Breaking Dawn, the next movie. That will be quite interesting, I have to say. The book was dark, twisted, and totally out of this world, but yeah, I’m really going to have to say the next movie really wouldn’t be suitable for kids. Lotsa violence going to be involved. Anyway, enough said. I would suggest you go watch the movie, and make your own opinions. Maybe if you’re able, you can tell me what you think of the movie. 🙂 Fair deal, I say! :D!
Moving on, the three of us journeyed to Borders after the movie. Since we were quite stuffed, we were more interested in the bookstore. My hands have been itching the minute I got to Orchard – itching to SHOP. And now that we’ve ventured into my most favourite place in the world, you can almost see my eyes rolling around 360º at each and every section! We were there for like more than 1 and 1/2 hours! And I have SO many books that I still want to get! But it was really strange, every book I picked up today was…dark and almost scary. Let me give you a list of the books I remember picking up:
1) Eleven minutes by Paulo Coelho
2) Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
3) High Fidelity
4) Jude The Obscure
5) Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder
6) Perfume: The Story of a Murderer
7) The Psychology of Love by Sigmund Freud
8) The Zabir by Paulo Coelho
Well, that’s all I remember picking up. I’m positive there were other books I picked up, but I just can’t quite remember them now. Most of the books in the list involve the topic of sex, lust, desire, murder, and incest. Something along those lines. :S!
And I’m glad to pronounce that I bought myself 2 books! Sophie’s World and Lolita! I’ve been searching high and low for Sophie’s World, ever since Shara introduced it to me years back. But I never had the guts to buy it because I know I won’t have time to finish reading it. Now that I found it here, like in the open (it was quite difficult trying to find the book back then) all ready for me to take home, I took the chance. 😀 Lolita was also introduced to me by lovely Shara and back then I didn’t know what it was. So curiosity got the cat in me and I’m giving it a shot. Hopefully it doesn’t kill me. All I know about this book, it’s very controversial, very sensational and yes explicit. It revolves around a step-dad’s lust for his prepubescent step daughter. And I’m about to find out why. 🙂
Will review the books at a later date, once I’m done of course.
P.S. Oh yeah if you’re wondering about the header for this post, it actually brings some sort of meaning to me. Maybe I’m always too attached to what I read and when I was reading the Twilight saga, I always thought the words were screaming out at me like some sort of advice that I should be taking in. Maybe I’m paranoid. Maybe it’s just how it seems to me, at that point of time, how similar it is to what I was going through. And no, I still don’t have a vampire boyfriend or a werewolf best friend. HAHA!
