My lips have been secretly collagen-injected. So have Victor's. Except mine malfunctioned and spread over my entire face.
THINGS THAT ARE TRUE BUT SEEM FALSE
I have been stopped on the street twice within the past 3 days by people trying to recruit me as a model. (WTHWTHWTH)
My family found the idea of both of these very entertaining. I hope you also find them entertaining, instead of being traumatised as i was.
In other news, met up with some plc's! Jadey is exceedingly nice. I like her very much. I also like Steph and Sue Wei and Vanessa. We had a fun time and watched some of 27 dresses (the guy is so cute <3) I kind of want to watch some movies. Keep hearing Avatar is really good or something. Why on earth did I watch new moon in cinema?!! (or at all) I also wish to watch the Hannah Montana movie. Wensi's review of it was very intriguing. Most recently I watched 500 Days of Summer on the plane hmmm the sound was rather bad, but it seemed likeable.
Must also stop stalking Alice's blog. This is hard.
Oh my. It is Christmas Eve in 15 mins! How not very exciting (apologies).
Oops i wanted to complain about/discuss the service in Singapore but this post seems overly long now. well well well. Perhaps you shall read another of my amazingly interesting blog entries soon.

well well well. i thought i lost this post, but it seems that blogger has handily saved it. thank you, my friendly webpage!
So. It seems i shall not be here for a while, not that I have been on this blog much lately either. Apologies, my loyal fans. I would however encourage you to redirect your sights to Wensi's blog, where she seems to be writing cool nonfanfic. Other exciting things that have occurred lately are that i have discovered that I like Big Bang Theory (they were watching it at wong's house before everyone else turned up and started playing ssb, where sam kept beating vincent SORRYVINCENT) i think i may have provided too much information now so i shall stop.
(maths science history unravelling the mystery that all started with a big bang BANG!)
I also like Tina Fey.

"I don't get it, Katherine says she is beautiful yet she dresses like a boy."
Sorry Katherine. Yr 7 me was harsh. You are very beautiful.

That's what you'd think, right? Well, that's what I'M thinking. Yet I have received no answers: only in the form of my excitement at the end of my exams on Thursday, 3:35pm.
PLEASE END IT ALREADY. I DON'T CARE ANYMORE.
...Tacitus, I am sorry. Virgil, I am sorry. Purcell, I am sorry.

...yes viv this is in direct response to your post.
Anyway. Last week I was on the tram home from my Eco exam when two old men sat down opposite me. I was wearing this shirt.
($5 from cotton on, bought as a set of 5 for my wind quintet, No Strings Attached. Yes, I was very excited to find it. Sadly I did not consider the other implications of such a slogan, and in fact never do when wearing it. A mistake, perhaps.)
To which I replied: "Ah. Yes."

Not really much to say about this, except that I have a problem with the intensely staring, sl0w-speaking lady who conducts our exam. I suppose there might be a need for her to check over all our papers but must she stare at us so disapprovingly while we do our exams?! And why must they whisper so loudly??? :(
Hope everyone went ok, but it was a fairly standard exam imo (although I feel paranoid about getting the entire first question wrong...I can't tell if what i did was right or not). Also, those tags that are used to connect our hole-punched papers are so cool!
TWO WEEKS AND TWO DAYS.
EDIT: WTHOMGAKL;DSJFKL;DSAFJKL;DSAF?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have just been informed that i screwed up question 1. Did not realise that the iron ions needed to be balanced to 5mol. WHAT ON EARTH. Must study for paper 3 now, I am appalled.
Saturday, October 31, 2009
I decided to compile a list of my personal highlights of IB. However, this is not limited to academic highlights (in increasing order of highlightness):
4. maths portfolio (generally acknowledged as one of the major highlights of ib)
3. TOK essays (these were so great)
2. all music exams
1. eco classes
But seriously, I actually did enjoy IB quite a lot. Who knows why. Maybe it's because of:
- battle of the bands
- IB choir
- the ib vs vce battle in yr 12 video
- HL english classes
- composition recordings (strangely fun)
But the best part of IB would have to be:
experiencing the amazing thing that is IB-bonding. Not ionic, nor dispersion, but covalent; electrons of knowledge/aid were shared among atoms that would not break apart at low temperatures (but possibly at high ones), and which would always create large amounts of heat while being broken. I will miss the IB community as I plunge into a sea of delocalised electrons. Good luck everybody!
EDIT: can't stop listening to chocolate love for some reason..very weird

current things that are inspiring me:
- the turtle print singlet i purchased from, yes, that wonderful place called Kmart, last week. With this, I can now showcase my not-so-unique awkward-turtle nature, as well as my great skill for creating awkward turtles, which is embodied in the amazing Turtle Print Singlet. It's almost as if i am a walking advertisement for awkward turtles! kind like i am endorsing Turtles, kind of like Nike, but not really. uh..yeah.
- Chiaki. Yes, I decided to procrastinate more and downloaded ep1 of Minami-ke Okaeri, ie. the apparently okay third season of Minami ke (vs. the wonderful first season and the vaguely repelling second season). I MISS THE SCARY FACES! : ( Other than that, Chiaki is still strangely endearing.
- four of my teachers have informed me that my writing is too small and very hard to read. I am now quite scared that my examiner may refuse to mark my paper. Hence, I have resolved to write more legibly. Well, it sounds easier than it is, okay.
- NO MORE 7:30AM WINDSYMPH REHEARSALS.
- kath's amazing dancing. she has a really inspiring pelvic-thrust move. it was so amazing that it induced an inspired rendition of Lacrimosa (from Mozart's Requiem) by Wensi.
- stooph talked to me today. inspiring.
Cannot believe there are so few days left of school. It's kind of dulling my anxiety for exams, the knowledge that ...well, this is the end. It's so surreal. I guess we have a lot of time to accept that school is nearly over though, with all the end of year events, but even so, I feel perpetually confused. Especially since we keep having classes for the last time, rehearsals for the last time - it's really strange to think, gosh i will never do this again. I mean, it's kind of like my world (based around school like the true nerd i am) is collapsing. No wonder I want to watch anime all the time.
...but don't worry. we still have our blogs.

...for those of you who are Glee fans but not Kurt fans, Sue Sylvester's twitter may incite more interest. (it's hilarious)
Quinn Fabray and Rachel Berry are also featured. Sadly, no Finn.
Glee is such a great show. With modern technology, crazed fans like myself can even procrastinate further and be drawn into things like twitter.
Speaking of which: my twitter account is frothy, although I ...doubt i will post much. Feel free to follow me, I am a very good shepherd.

Undulatus asperatus (or alternately, asperatus) is a rare, newly recognized cloud formation, that was proposed in 2009 as the first cloud formation added since cirrus intortus in 1951 to the International Cloud Atlas of the World Meteorological Organization. The name translates approximately as roughened or agitated waves.
This one gets bigger if you save it.
Reminds me of those mathematical fractals you can get. Sort of like the 4d fractal projected onto a 3d plane...except coloured in by the sun.

There are only two possibilities behind the door you pick: either a car or a goat. The probabilities for each are 1/3 for a car and 2/3 for a goat (before you do any switching etc).
Let us consider the first case, with the car behind the door you pick. Now the GSH reveals a goat. In this case, since the other, unrevealed door is also a goat, it would be best to not switch. Therefore, in the 1/3 case that you do have the car, you should not switch.
The other case would be if you had a goat. The GSH will unveil another goat. The unrevealed door now contains a car. In this case, you should switch, in order to obtain a car. However, the chance that this case is the one you have is 2/3.
This means that, overall, switching will be beneficial, since 2/3 times switching will will allow you to win.
I found this way of thinking through a little easier than the methods on Wikipedia. I'm not sure why. I hope my explanation is not wrong.

As most of you can tell, this blog is not getting the most hits…actually it is doing very poorly. Occasionally, I receive some good comments from readers.
Someone please tell me why the character on the right has a calf longer than her entire arm and why the stripper’s uniform is necessary – skip the skimpy school uniform and get to business because obviously pedophilia is the underlying message in this craftily named School Days to avoid public attention while attracting all asian men of all shapes and sizes in a massive frenzied orgy gosh get a damn haircut before you fall over because of the imbalance caused by all that follicle crap THATS AN AWESOME BRIEFCASE I WANT THAT BRIEFCASE THE BROWN ONE NOT THE BLACK ONE so I can sell it for profit to a discerning bear and those stairs are sexy and compliment the fence 5/5!!!!!1!!!! go watch now before you get sober
Thanks for giving me some more content for my blog, anonymous.

"I am a vampire."
Truly amazing. I have restrained myself from watching more, however, in fear that my family will hear my shrieks of laughter and think that I am insane. Or not studying. Which I am. Anyway.
Other distractions include the new TV show, Glee, the presence of which both Wensi and Rama alerted me to. This is about a choir (YES! LIKE CHOIR! sort of), except it sucks (not like choir) and they do cool dance moves (not like choir). The thing I like most about this show is the exciting music, which is alot better than High School Musical. Except that it consists of covers. Not that that's a bad thing - in fact it means that you will probably have heard msot of the songs before (unless you are like me and don't listen to english music often). It is slightly confusing and jumbly though, but I'm hoping that's going to get better - after all, only episode 1 and 2 have aired so far.
Anyway, if you are looking for a way to procrastinate, Glee is an entertaining way to spend an hour on Thursday nights. It airs at 7:30 pm on Channel 10. You can also stream it on their website. WTH! i totally did not know you could do that until now. How weird. But that might use up a lot of your download, so I don't know if you would want to do that.
Well. My holidays have been fairly wonderful. I have also been eating a lot, very exciting.
I am hungry now. goodbye.

Anyway. The point of writing this blog was to comment on my experience within Supre. This is a delightful store. It used to be pink but is now black and often has very loud music playing. As I ventured inside the store, I noticed a number of things:
1. There seemed to be about 10 of each design in a number of different colours (makes one wonder where they get all the stock from - or maybe they do not sell much?)
2. EVERYTHING SEEMED TO BE REALLY TIGHT! perhaps i should go on a diet! i felt upset by this.
3. The people in the store seemed to consist of girls under the age of 16 (from my estimation). I wondered, belatedly, if i was too old to be in the store. (distressing)
I did not buy anything.
However, I did feel concerned for the fate of young children, lured into the world of SEXUAL PREDATORS. How can young girls achieve 99.95 if they fixate on fashion/are raped and traumatised? Besides, such tight clothes encourage anorexia.
Based on my experience at supre, I have derived the following equation:
Supre = young girls
Supre = tight clothes
Tight/revealing/short clothes + young girls = danger (for girls/pedophiles)
Supre = danger

So...I was opening up my Lexicon Omega audio recording thing because....well it kept on dying and i don't think i can return it anymore (i'm voiding the warranty by opening it, but you can't tell that i opened it.)
They were metal plates. I thought removed the plates which had aided in cooling the mosfets, or something. BUT THEY WEREN'T FOR THAT. Additionally, the bottom metal plate which came off (in black) also served no purpose. Well, it did serve one purpose. To make the product seem more expensive. (actually it could be to give it a lower centre of mass so it doesn't fall over...but couldn't they have made it horizontally?
I mean, who wants to buy a product which feels as if it's about to break? Consumers associate weight with a quality product, so that is what they get. It also servers to differentiate this top level product from the bottom level (this is the best of 3 lexicon audio interfaces).
I was thinking of getting a zoom H6n or whatever it's called...the new one. I have another zoom product which works fine, a guitar pedal. I have not opened that, but i'm sure it's weight is due to precise engineering, not clever marketing.
If lexicon has another reason for these plates, they should tell me, as i will immediately take down this blog.

As i checked my plc email I noticed that "this friday form assembly will be put aside for a preliminary locker cleanup". My initial reaction was ??!?!!!! and then "oh dear! maybe we will not have lockers next term!" and then "oh dear, we are actually leaving plc after all...how disturbing".
I don't know about other people's feelings towards their schools but I am actually quite sad about leaving plc. As wensi often points out (sneeringly, like snape) I am a Junior School Girl and have actually been at plc since year 3...ie for TEN YEARS (not as long as viv/sav though).
sigh. and, like, there were no guys. not that i am sexist, but I highly doubt i will experience guyfreedom again. unless I go to an all girls' college. or teach at a girls' school. or..er anyway, yes my point is that a special time is almost over. i am sure it had its flaws and things but i will miss it too.
my music recital is over, too - i feel a bit stunned. and angsty august is nearly over, too.
gosh. i cannot believe this.
the world is exploding! (slightly)
Friday, August 21, 2009
and why is this? you might ask.
as much as it pains me to make this announcement.. there has been a falling out, between myself and the other members of this blog. ah...when i say members i guess i really mean one member in particular, as in the only active one. if you can really call us active.
anyway. i just thought i would let everyone know.
okay sorry that was a joke. ahem. yes it was a rather bad joke, i am sorry.
wish me luck for my concerto tonight : (

Being a true slacker, over the holidays i've been watching some tv shows in an attempt to avoid my homework. Probably not the best idea, but, you know, it was fun. I also realised today when i was reading up on anime that i haven't watched anime for ages : ( i remember that idyllic time when i spent hours hunched in front of my computer screen, allowing tears to run freely from my eyes as Shirou confessed his love for Saber...
Ok, that was a lie, i don't think i actually cried in fate/stay night (i'm sure chewy would disapprove greatly of such emotional affectations in such a um, inferior anime to haruhi) ....moving on to my next point, season 2 of haruhi is out. so i have been watching that.
Is it just me, or has mikuru become more annoying? I swear i liked her before, in season one. I think that as my love for mikuru has waned, i have begun to like haruhi more. Slightly. I think that my preference for the girls goes like this:
haruhi > yuki > mikuru
and kyon >>> itsuki (which is slightly better than before when kyon >>>>>>> itsuki)
Has anyone noticed that yuki keeps wearing her school uniform? I think it is because she is so bored that she can't be bothered changing anymore. Also, why do they have so many swimsuits o__O they..seem to change every episode. um.
anyway haruhi 2 is the only anime i've been watching lately, but I'm sure wong could tell you more about the anime he's been watching. It's...not hentai though. I think.
So apart from anime, there is this great tv show called
30 rock is a comedy show written and produced by Tina Fey, which she stars in as the main character, Liz Lemon. It's set mostly behind the scenes of a comedy sketch show, where Liz Lemon is the head writer. god i suck at writing summaries, here is the wiki page
Anyway, it is funny and charming! and witty! and pretty and bright, tonight. The third season is currently airing at 11:30pm on Monday nights, but don't be put off by the late airing. ok i'm just going to end this post now, i like 30 rock a lot though : (

me: Matt, what would your predicted enter score for me be?
him: i'd say...about 92.
me: okay. i will look up the conversion.
me: 92 is 34. which would mean that i would have to get less than 6 in most of my subjects.
well. i think that i should be looking forward to the end of the year, when i get 92. well, matt, even if i don't get 99.90 like you, at least i will still be able to get in to music at melbourne...which is more than you ever tried to do.

HC: "Linh, run! Run and kick the ball! Go, Linh, go! *squeal*"
...as you can see, she also seemed to keep forgetting my name.
Later I attempted to kick the ball as it was coming towards me. Sadly my foot went over the ball and hit..the air. This was unfortunate, but not unexpected.
HC: "Linh, I saw that! you were deliberately trying not to kick the ball!!!"
I have never been accused of this before in such a serious tone.
Katherine confessed to me today. She told me that she would "turn homo" for me. Well, now we know the reason behind all of her boob-punching. Hah! I believe that her verbal attacks on my "boobies" are in fact, fuelled by her intense desire for me.
I think i like this word too much...intense. : (

Fiona - oh, it was alright, there were some things i didn't know but i think i did ok
Kath - did you get the question on [insertHLthing]? it was so hard. like the whole thing was really hard. I studied so much but i think i did really badly.
Wensi - hahaha chem! oh well, at least it was better than maths
Viv - ...must study for Bio
Anyway, exams are halfway through now. The maths exam was horrible, all the more so because it would have been very possible if only i/we had studied the correct things enough (ie. statistics). As viv has commented, kristen did, in fact, miss the exam because she thought it was at another time. Gosh i would have felt rather panicked if i were her - she seemed quite relaxed though, i suppose she can do it at some other time/perhaps she was already resigned to having missed it.
Oh my. Extended essay is due in two weeks! And mine only half written! Dear oh dear.
Saturday, May 23, 2009
Exams would be better if i were more focussed. And if i had already finished all my internals. As it is, I seem to still not have finished my music investigation or my extended essay. They feed on the pitiful limbs with biting : ( Gosh what an awkward translation.
Toora loora toora loo rye aye!
I am rather obsessed with that song that the other plc band played in Battle of the Bands: Save Ferris - Come On Eileen. It is so catchy!!! I feel as though i am capable of exam revision with encouraging music such as this. I actually like carbon chem now o__O I think it is also because it is standard level. ahaha.
On thursday i had four spares. YES. i must recount my spare adventures:
p1 - music spare (ms friend was away); emily played Secret <3 and i tried to learn it
p2 - FAL spare (mr green was away); composed YAY.
p4 - eco spare (HL classes only for the next 2 or so weeks); did some eco homework
p5 - actual spare; gossiped with fiona/wensi
Hmm it seems that matt has gone to sleep already! i am alone : (
Wednesday, May 06, 2009
I feel rather disorganised. Somehow I find internal assessments difficult. I feel unable to think! IB offends me. Then again, I am also quite excited for formal LOL just like everyone else i seem to only be able to talk about formal-related things at this time. For example - ok i shall not go into this but instead provide readers with two exciting and hopefully new words!
Two useful words for describing males:
avuncular, adj. - 1. of or relating to an uncle; 2. suggestive of an uncle particularly in kindness or geniality
uxorious, adj. - excessively fond of or submissive to a wife, ie. an accommodating husband, but not necessarily with negative connotations.
A challenge! WHO IS THE MOST AVUNCULAR/UXORIOUS PERSON YOU KNOW?
and do you agree with my suggestion of Argall/Victor respectively
ARGHHH IT APPEARS TO BE 10:27pm NOW I MUST WRITE MY COMMENTARY.

Saturday, April 11, 2009
I opened mine and i couldn't understand the code i think i was not reading it properly, so i was just like, oh okay : ( So I started to walk around and ask other people what they got. I remember that i asked viv.
me: viv, what did you get into?
viv: i didn't get into anything!!!
i don't remember my reaction LOL yes um
then i uh, went over to zoe's group, and zoe was like, i didn't get into anything either, and then tanji kept talking about nothing, and joan got really upset because nobody was listening to her, they were all listening to tanji. o____O yes i do not know
finally i opened my results and i saw that i got um 9 results i do not know why. i suppose it could have been cas/ee but all of them were over 3, so i am not sure. They were: 7, 4, 6, 7, 5, 7, 4.
My first thought was: omg! what is that 4! it must be eco. But i couldn't find out what subjects they were! it was extremely distressing.
I then looked down the paper, where it listed the courses one had uh, got into. On my paper there was only one:
Course details: In this course, students learn skills such as running and jumping, as well as basic coordination.
At that point my dad came into my room and woke me up.
WHAT A HORRIFYING DREAM !
NB: for some reason i don't remember anyone else being in that dream except for Wong, who was kind of following me around as i went to talk to viv and so on, then provided a comforting presence as i read the details of my future in physical education. : (

28. This Great Team Name Uses Exactly Fifty Characters - 67 points / 17 puzzles / 168 guesses.
Matt's team put on a rush of creative thinking at the end and came 11th! I must however state that there was one point on Thursday i think, when we were actually TWO PLACES ABOVE THEM. Matt even asked me for help. AHAHAHA. Sadly they outstripped us from there.
Anyway, I look forward to Puzzle Hunt next year, and hope i'm not too busy/uninterested to do it. Who knows, maybe there will be a PLC Yr 13 group! That would be rather exciting.
Since torturous term one has come to an end i have some exciting plans for the holidays! These are:
- watch The Mission!
- and Australia hopefully
- study : (
- get up to 4000 words in extended essay
- compose two pieces - WTH? yes, it seems that music HL's are expected to write two compositions, even though we are clearly not mozart. or bach. or anyone like that. perhaps i can write bad ones (actually there should be no perhaps here)
- rehearse with 45 for battle of the bands
I enjoy IB
Friday, March 27, 2009
- Go to the site www.rottentomatoes.com/
- Search the movie
- If it has a low score (this movie had an average score of 4.4 out of ten)
- Read some other reviews/ask friends about it, if necessary

I feel that our latin class is losing steam. we had a rather satisfying discussion for a whole period on the vices of a certain music captain - a pleasant change from the perceived vices of Nero that Tacitus likes to fixate on so much. Seriously, must he constantly infer things about Nero's blackened soul?
Then again, i suppose that Nero did have some traits that might cause people to dislike him. For example, people might be annoyed by his promiscuity. Or something. And they might think he was squandering Rome's money with his large parties (intended, of course, to turn Rome into Alexandria, since he was sulking about his inability to go to Egypt since he uh. went into Vesta's chamber and started trembling with fear. yes, just randomly. this was then taken as a bad omen, so that he then decided it was not a good idea) ummmm poor Tacitus, i must be interpreting him so terribly : ( i am sorry, great writer.
IB is fun.

You won't see any of these people there:

I saw something better than this but i didn't have my camera with me....
I was in the car driving on the freeway, looking up at the clouds. There were clearly two layers of clouds, one more dark and brooding layer, while a higher layer was on top, closer to heaven. The sun shone through the top layer, and as we drove under the darker (bottom) layer, the perspective gave the impression that the dark layer was blanketing us.
Dad didn't notice but I did. I thought to myself, 'I should take a picture to capture this'...but i couldn't. A lack of camera, you see.
There was a much more three dimensional quality to the clouds that time than I had ever seen before.... Unfortunately i could not make any metaphorical links with this because nothing has happened recently which could connect to this.... perhaps the way school is a barrier to reaching what you truly want, the skies above? I do not know. Yes , ying, i am stealing your well used 'do not use a contraction for empasis' ability.
Something else I enjoyed today was the tristam town instrumental...here is a youtube link to it. It is from the second Diablo game, although it has featured in both games. It was written by Matt Uelmen.
Also I enjoyed the song "Temple of Shadows" by Angra. Youtube it or something i cbf getting a link.
Why am I being so weird in my blog post today? I don't know....I thought I had a cold again this morning but now it seems much better. Another excuse could be the 6 SACs (School Assessed Coursework...s) next week. I don't even feel depressed.... more distressed, with an impending sense of doom....a driving force which helps me do some work.... some work.... : (. I would work much better without VCAA (victorian certificate of my ass) on my back.
That reminds me, I was doing this physics question today and i was extremely uspset that I didn't get it. It made me, as commonly said, 'ragequit'. I may ....not rage quit, but tiredquit now, as this post is far too long for anyone to read to the end....er.. i mean i'm tired, i'm sure my writing is the purest form of bliss that humankind has ever witnessed.
I WANT TO BE YOUR WIIIIIIIIIFE! I WANT TO BEAR YOUR CHIIIIIILD!
i WANT TO DIEEE, KNOWING IIII HAD A LONG FULL LIFE - IN YOUR ARMS
- The Next Ten Minutes, Last Five Years
I could, possibly, have quoted without the capitals, but seriously, that's what it sounds like. It is rather amazing. So is IB, i wish i was more efficient though : (
The rain and overcast sky give me a cosy feeling. There's something nice about drinking tea while there's thunder and rain falling and it's warm, and doing Latin or reading a book seems like the natural thing to do. I think that cold weather is more conducive to studying. That is why we should do May exams instead of November exams - hm that was a bad joke, it would be quite distressing if that actually happened.
The number of bands auditioning for Battle of the Bands has increased - well, not exponentially, but significantly, as in six-fold. Which means that we must try really hard to GET BACK into our true rockselves. Rehearsals start on monday - wish me luck in playing bass!
Which reminds me, if anyone has a bass that they are not using, we need one rather desperately : ( it would be very much appreciated by all of us. I will, uh, transcribe a song for you. um. yes.

I didn't really want to go to this that much....it's just my teacher suggested i do it. She basically picked us, as opposed to the other class who had multiple people wanting to do it and had their names picked from a hat. There were, in total, 6 year 12's, and about 12 year 11's. We hopped on our dodgey bus and went to the olympiad.
The only person i recognised there from another school was kristen, the one of the other contributers to this blog. She was carrying a huge art thing? I don't know.
Anyway, just before we were to start, a bell went off. It sounded like a fire alarm sort of bell, so i semi-yelled 'fire' jokingly. Somebody then came in, and told us to get out of the building.
I still don't know why the fire alarm went off, but we all had to stand outside for about 30 minutes. Kristen questioned the action I was taking while taking this photo, to which i replied "I'm taking a photo of the firetruck". While we were going back inside, the alarm went off again.
Before starting, the examiner told us we probably couldn't finish the entire paper in the 2 hours. Our group involved Me,Ben and Adrian, and we surprisingly did finish in time, of course adrian did three whole problems by himself (the "easy" ones) and ben got the "hardest one". The last one was the best (even though i didn't get to actually do it), as it involved anime. Very slightly.
I wonder how we'll go....

(i think it's called procrastination)
I am too lazy.
It is, i feel, a sad life when you have lost count of the times you have read [insert trashy fanfic title here]. Then again, i do not know what to say, as Matt is watching the Love Hina Spring Special next to me. Even I did not go that far.
Hopefully tomorrow shall yield more productive results with the rise of the IB spirit.

Why is that? Why is it that guys are even capable of singing that high???
On Friday i went to see the MGS production of A Midsummer Night's Dream - it was rather amusing. Especially the play, Thisbe and Pyrramus. wth how do you spell pyramus? Phyramus? yes anyway, it was quite hilarious, i spent much of the play laughing while my silent neighbour cast disapproving looks at me. Vincent was quite good as UPRIGHT FROWNING PHILOSTRATE he had quite an amazing booming voice ahahaha.
Hmm i really like the MGS uniform for some reason o__O they have a cool stripy shirt. Sadly even this stripiness is not sufficient to render shorts with long socks acceptable. Please, save our eyes @__@
What else? I am not motivated to do my homework, and Viv asked me to post, so that is why i am here. I am listening to Last Five Years atm. It is the first day of Autumn.
Seasons may change
Summer to Autumn
But i will love you (i will love you)
Until the end of time
Somehow it just does not sound the same. Damn two-syllabled names

ransom notes keep falling out your mouth
mid-sweet talk, newspaper word cut outs
speak no feeling no I don't believe you
you don't care a bit
you don't care a bit
- Hide and Seek, Imogen Heap
House concerts are finally over (though they lasted only 3 weeks). I am still in love with Hide and Seek. I wonder if i can obtain the recording ahahaha it is rather different live, since it is cleaner and less electronic. Being, of course, not electronic at all.
I must now return to my homework. It endears me to it by shooting sparks of reproach that sting my mind as I attempt to ignore my duties. How shameful i am. How unlike a pink and wonderful clam. Goodbye.

IT's Qi. Qi is reading a comic magazine.
This is Ngan's burger. He likes to eat them. They are from the tuckshop. The tuckshop is dirty. The tuckshop is less dirty than the previous tuckshop.
I am pointing at Tung. I cut his head off becuase he does not enjoy pictures being taken of him.
We were trying to get into the Venturers Hut again. The electronic key did not work, as we could not get it 'charged'(think role playing games). Ironically, the window was left open, so we could bypass the door. Sandbach climbed in the window. He knocked down the curtain.
Rama lay on the couch.
We were supposedly not supposed to go in the hut as somebody had grafitied the walls. I say walls as all of the walls contained some grafiti. The grafiti reminded me of some horror movie, where the antagonist goes insane and writes on the walls in order to express the antagonist's feelings (see what I did thar).
There is now an extra couch in the scout hall, and a gamecube. We had the classic game, 'Super Smash Bro's Melee'. Anders, who is not in the picture, just pwned Sandbach.
Me and rama having private time. Note the placement of the couches, chair, and table.

This is a modification of a quote from 'Fight Club' which I may have seen.
This is a photo of someone holding a knife. I'm not sure about you, but this is not normal. He isn't even going to cut the sandwich he's eating with the knife.
I'm not sure who drew on this piece of paper but it shows the general decor of the venturer hut room - it is full of penis'. Somebody stole some loose sleeve paper, and with the markers lying around the room drew many things, on them.
Now out of the Venturer's hut, and into the tuckshop. I am not sure what these actually are - they look like there were some spare meatballs and they needed to get rid of them. Good luck with getting people to eat those balls.
Just before entering the last period of school today - chem. It was also what it looked like finishing school, so let's say I took it then. This signifies the end of the school day.
To finish off, you may want to see somebody dodge fruit while playing cricket with a tennis racket - but you need to be my friend on facebook to see that. Click HERE to see.

Those scones were so pretty though ..and they were free! HOW COULD EMILY SHI RESIST EATING THEM??? it is shocking! then again, if like certain people you hate eating when not hungry, i can see why you would be able to resist. Sadly, Wensi and I both find resistance difficult. So. School has been fun so far. It seems, though, that just as the economy spirals down, so does my economic skill fail to improve. Not only do i find it as boring as ever but I also find it rather alarming that I haven't done any eco homework yet! Then again, I have also not done any english homework. Or maths. I think I must blame house concerts for this. And Latin. Why do i spend so much time on Latin and Chem?? ._. "If you don't like your fate, change it! You are your own master, there are no shackles on you." - Aida, Aida
Today I spent over an hour watching Fate/Stay Night - yes, again. I feel rather guilty, but other than that I did homework/practised for the rest of the time. Except for now, when I am supposed to be arranging house music but instead am blogging. Gah.
Ok. I'll stop now and attempt to finish the carnival song I wrote.
OMG NOOO i must also speak of my traumatising experience last night! As I crawled into my overheated bed beneath a thin orange blanket, I felt somewhat tense. This might have been the cause for what happened next - MY IMAGINATION causing a HALLUCINATION?
And yet it felt so real.
To continue with this account of my (not as dramatic as i am making it out to be) night, I lay still for quite some time attempting to sleep, attempting to ignore the buzzing and humming from insects around my house (to cool the air, we have taken to leaving windows open). WHEN SUDDENLY i heard the noise of: SOMETHING DROPPING FROM THE CEILING ONTO MY BED NEAR MY HEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i was seriously freaked out, okay. WHAT COULD IT BE? A SPIDER? it sounded kind of crunchy and like...a...very small bomb???!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After this happened for the second time i switched on the light and searched my sheets frantically for some sign of life/small bombs. no, i was mostly scared of insects. yet...i found nothing.
and so to help myself sleep i was forced to use my thick quilt, which gave me a greater sense of security but which also increased the temperature significantly so that my clothing became damp. In fact, in the morning my clothing was also slightly damp when i woke up. Um. Anyway.
That is the end of the account of my distressing night. I hope that tonight i shall sleep without fear of insecs/small bombs dropping from the ceiling onto my face.

But i must say i was fascinated by Ying's story about the cat lady..and umbrellas..and tea/coffee...i cant say i remember the story line...but...fascinating none the less.
On a lighter note..or not depending on how you see it. School has begun. I find fate quite amusing sometimes as for the third year in a row i am in room V for maths...i began sleeping in maths in year ten...this escalated to me not being able to stay awake at all in room V ..year eleven came and i failed maths. This year i have high hopes for-like getting into college-so this means i must stay awake in math....Learning...is...fun. -.-
aaaand i got a puppy!!! its now eight weeks and completely adorable!!^^
