I think I’ve been going to bed with the sun up in the sky for over two weeks now. Strangely, I remember someone once told me that if a person continues this kind of sleeping habit, there’s a good chance that he might collapse and die.I was just waiting for the moment that I would lose consciousness spontaneously. I will now need to readjust my sleeping hours. It won’t be easy. My heads a little fuzzy now as I am typing this since it is after 2.54am and I’ve yet to dry my hair so I won’t be going to bed anytime soon.
Plus my files are all over my floor and I really want to pick them up and put them up on the shelves, yet my legs just doesn’t want to make contact with the parquet floor. I need to fold that pile of clothes which is now almost a permanent fixture resting on my bean bag. Haih. And clear the cobwebs from the ceiling. So many chores lah. And pick up the bird nest bits from below my window. (I know, I’m scared of contracting bird flu too.)
I hate this rainy season. A green bug(It’s that bug season too..anybody remember posts from my old blog while I was studying for my year 1 finals?) sits on my third finger as I type this, refusing to fly away. A cricket is covering the G on my google search toolbar and UARrggh…it just flew to my nose.
But I flicked it away as I’m so nonchalant about bugs already. I will have to clear up the line of bugs stuck in between the plastic frame and the LCD screen. That’s what you get when you leave your laptop open for more than 24 hours during this bug fest season. Things are so bad that there’s a PILE of dead green bugs(now gold because die already) measuring about 1mX1m out on the porch just underneath the flourescent light.
Moths of all shapes and sizes flock into my room. I pick some and drag them abit on my table. I rub my fingers together and admire the glittery effect of their powder. I know it can induce itchiness.. but so far so good!
Aiyoh, my point is that I want to sleep early tonight(anytime before 6am) and I’m rambling about bugs in my room. Damn kedah.
My classmates’ MSN personal messages read, “Green bugs, go away. Please don’t bite me..please……”, “Itchy la wei. Fuckkkkk..” and “Green insects, mosquitoes, moths.. like an insect farm.” Everybody is going through the same problem. I’m SO feeling the effect of living in Malaysia’s Rice Bowl. When they harvest the padi, the bugs have no food and thus feast on me.
I still have scars on my legs from last year’s bugs. This year the scars are on my hands. Next year it will be on my torso.(Yeah, I also don’t know why it seems like I’ll be wearing a bikini day in day out during my third year finals. Food for thought.) then fourth year, my face. Fifth year, the bugs will ‘chap sau mei'(in cantonese: tie up loose ends.)..just touch up whichever parts of my body that is still clear and not bitten.
I’m really glad that the exams are over. Though as long as the results are not out yet, I don’t dare feel happy. But I’ve already done many happy things ever since 3.30pm(on 17/7)! I’ve bought a pair of new shoes, bought two Catherine Lim books that I’ve been searching for high and low ever since form four(Thank you Dad for the lovely end of exams book presents that you will only know about at the end of the month!! <3) and HARRY POTTEERRRRRR!
Best movie out of all the HP movies. Bestbestbestbestbest! Absolutely. It was much more enthralling and realistic than the last four movies. However, it seems that a lot of the initial Harry Potter magic has been lost on its increasing hype and deepening storyline. And I mean it for the books as well.
What blew me away when I was 14 years old are no longer a focus: Quidditch, chocolate frogs, potion classes, shopping at Diagon Alley and the many many broom stick scenes. 🙁
Another happy thing would be tomorrow: I’ll be heading to Penang with the rest of my classmates!! Seems like it’s going to become a tradition for the rest of the classmates to head down to Penang for a day of shopping, movie watching and some good Penang food.
One more practical exam on Monday and with many body parts crossed, I hope I will be the bearer of good news by the end of next week. AND THEN I’M HOME FOR 5 WHOLE WEEKS. ARGHHHH I WANT TO HUG MY DOG ANGEL NOW. 🙁 And everybody back home too..hehe.
Alright. Dry hair, pick up files, turn on aircon, pluck eyebrows(it’s an End Of Exams ritual), open book, read, switch off lights, sleep, wake up, go penang, come home, watch many many many many many movies and sitcoms and be happy.
Ooooh, one of my greatest time wasters(introduced by minishorts, thanks babe! and T_T.) during the exam season was POLYVORE.COM!
it’s like you can make your own fashion spreads. They have thousands of images from thousands of brand names. And various other images which you can add onto a canvas like screen. Just go crazy. Make collages, build doll houses, make fashion pages, make a visual wish list(with big names like Forever21, Calvin Klein, Ikea… random names but almost every brand you can think off, they’ll have a list of their products. In graphic form.)…etc. Just go mad lah:)
I even saved my creations as my handphone wall paper! (see my twitter!)
I called this My Mish Mash. Click here to see which images from which brands/sites I put together!
Wendy Wonka, presumably the daughter of Willy Wonka. I added the hat. And more.
I named this one Second Childhood. Hehehe. See, they even have toys! Many, many toys.
