It's The Little Things That Matter.

Hey there! :)

My blog signature has been changed (perhaps temporarily). A few teachers have been asking our class if anyone of us has a blog, and I find it funny that no one is willing to admit to it. Ain't no teacher gonna see my blog! LOL. I wasn't all too thrilled about going to school this morning (Who is? Really?) because I was really tired and suffering from hand cramps for trying to complete my homework. 

But I went anyway #LikeAGoodGirl. Speaking of sleeping, why are people so hesitant to admit they sleep with their childhood soft toy/pillow? I have a pillow, rabbit and teddy bear which I've had for years, and I'm not ashamed to admit I like cuddling them :3 (Cats included.. Grumpy jumped into my bed a few nights ago, sigh. Cats are so warm and fluffy.) The most annoying thing about camps? No freaking bolsters. What am I supposed to hug? The air? HAHA. 

School was actually bearable today, quite fun. 
Except for the huge pile of homework the teachers threw at us for the CNY holidays.

Remind me again, the point of holidays if you don't actually get to enjoy yourself? Now instead of eating bakkwa and lychee jellies and feeling good about life, I'm going to worry about the stack of homework waiting for me right around the corner.  Procrastination ,running circles in my head - Simple Plan. 
 ....Then don't do it. HAHA. Okay kids, don't listen to the crazy ranting girl who has spent the whole day snoozing on the couch after school. 

A lot of Chinese students weren't in school today. In my class, only 3 out of 8 Chinese students were present: Sin Yee, Mee En and me. Maths class was pretty peaceful (teacher wasn't around), meaning that most of us starting chatting with our friends and laughing before/after/not even doing the exercise the substitute teacher gave to us. Iman, Alif and Syahmim wanted to draw weed on their hand (don't ask) , and asked me to do it, but I'm awful at drawing things besides mythology based symbols so I said "Sorry, no can do."  They asked me if I smoke, drink or take drugs. I said "I hate the taste of alcohol, the smell of cigarettes and the idea of getting high on dangerous substances when oxygen is a safer alternative." They just gave me blank stares and said:

Not even 0.01 percent alcohol?" Me: "Nope." 

D and Mee En started signing "Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?" from the Frozen soundtrack, and it was so funny, I couldn't help laughing. It reminded me of High School Musical where everyone would randomly burst into a song and start singing their lungs out. 

Remember the video Nigahiga made about the Royal wedding (or something?) 

That moment kind of brought this scene to mind. 
Them: I can sing you a song.
Me: I don't wanna hear it.
HAHAHA. 
But really, it was hilarious. 

(Too many Nigahiga gifs? Sorry, I'm on a video marathon now :P)

I've been losing weight since the school year started. I know it's strange because when I was 13-14, I eat a lot when I'm stressed (junk food mostly) and bloated up like a whale. That was also the same year I found out I had eczema and suffered from a huge breakout after taking medication for that which I was allergic to -__- NOT my best year, definitely. I still eat when I'm stressed, but I try to limit and watch what I eat (except for that whole can of pizza pringles I chomped down a while back #yolo) and I walk around a lot these days (which translate into shopping and chasing kittens) I'm surprised that a lot of people don't notice my skin condition unless I point it out (talked about it with Izzati and Azlina last Monday) because it seems quite obvious to me. But I'm glad it's not as noticeable as it used to be, because that has always been something which dulled my self-esteem. 

Do you notice that whenever you're scrolling through Tumblr or other websites like WeHeartIt, the photos of girls are usually of skinny girls (with thigh gaps <- why is that attractive?) wearing crop tops, shorts and sneakers. Society's idea of beautiful doesn't include curvy? All sizes are beautiful, I don't see why everyone has to be a size 0 (I don't even know what a size 0 is! Don't even know my own size, LOL) If you have a blob for a tummy like I do, high five! If you don't, well, no sweat. Another thing: Fashion. Youtubers and Tumblr girls might look good in crop tops and what not, but can't you change it up a little? I like clothesencounter, because she isn't afraid to try something different. What happened to leather jackets, skull t-shirts, camo pants/black jeans, combat boots and black leather bracelets? 

On a side note, I've been wanting to wear eyeliner for a while now, but I'm worried that people might think I'm, you know.. weird, strange, odd and just plain crazy. If you haven't got the gist of it, not a lot of people around here wear makeup in high school. Welcome to M'sia, where beauty doesn't matter. JUST KIDDING. HAHAHA. My fringe is KILLING me. I'm never felt so much like a pumpkin in all my life -__- That's vanity for you. But you wouldn't like looking like a pumpkin head either. 

 

reblogged from: Ryan Higa Inspired

I remember girls doing this all the time on Facebook. Common sense, if you think that you look unattractive, don't post the freaking photo on a social network with millions of people on it! 
Don't lie about not feeling attractive, if you don't really feel that way :P It's annoying and obvious.
Or annoyingly obvious. Whatever works. 

I really like Sadie Kane (from Kane Chronicles) but sometimes I understand why Carter has the urge to throw things at her. HAHA. Overconfident people aren't very nice to be around :( 

Anyways, I'm going to be watching Youtube videos now, so till next time! :)

Well, This Is Awkward.

Hey there! :)

The book rundown will be posted as soon as I finish writing out the draft (which might take a while..). It will be a long, gif-filled, slightly crazy post, so be warned :P

(Just throwing some Nigahiga in there, teehee)

Friday:
We (Students of unnamed school) had a wonderful lecture today. The school split up the students by their skin color,
image

Without much regard for the bananas (Non-Mandarin speaking Chinese), mangosteens (Non-Tamil speaking Indians) and biracial (What if you're Chindian or a race besides Chinese-Indian-Malay? Do you go to the surau, language room or dataran gemilang? Malaysian logic -__-) I didn't have much choice (seeing as they don't have any alternative group for fruit people) but to follow Sin Yee to the language room. She's my Google/Bing language translator, so without her, I would probably be blur throughout the whole lecture, HAHA. We sat at the back of the room, in front of Seh Qi, Mei Keng, and Lee Hong. I re-read The Last Olympian,

took a few quick naps,

and doodled nonsense on a piece of paper.


Halfway, they played some really sad music out of the blue, and almost everyone started crying.

I looked up from my book and I was like

Just Happened?

I asked Sin Yee, and she said the guy asked them to think about their family or sad moments, something like that. I said "Ohh. Okay." and went back to reading. Looked up again and observed some people crying. I tried really hard not to laugh because I felt so awkward sitting in a roomful of crying people. Seh Qi had tears running down her cheeks and she asked me why I wasn't crying. I responded with a "I have no idea what's going on!" And that wasn't the weirdest part. Towards the end of the lecture, they played happy music to dance to. DANCE TO.

Uh, how about no? HAHA. Only a few guys were dancing, some people were clapping and others were standing and looking around awkwardly (ehem, me)

I hope that never happens again. HAHA. Awkward moments? Not my thing.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Monday:
I was in a bit of a bad mood today because I have only two more days to complete my Moral folio (Thanks Google/Scribd) and I'm not entirely sure what the content is supposed to be. I just followed references from students who have done it before. I don't think we're allowed to write on lined paper, but I did it anyway. I cut it out and pasted on a piece of A4 paper. But really, why is lined paper not allowed in the first place anyway? Some people have a condition where writing on blank pages makes their words fly all over the place. I tried putting lined paper under the A4 paper, but I write extremely slow with that method because I tend to pull the paper around (plus I write sideways) and loose track of what I'm writing.

I lost my essays from last year (I could have sworn I had them in a file!) so I have to write out new ones again #justmyluck. And there's the 4 charity work (kerja amal) reports and photos for evidence to do. Yay, happy times. Happy times. I asked Ryan if he has a folio from his Form 4/5 years, and he said he NEVER ACTUALLY DID ONE. WOW. The Moral Folio is worthless anyway, in my opinion. Don't they know what Matthew 6:1-4 says? Good works are SUPPOSED to be kept private, not to be boasted about. Oh well.

Will be off to homework land now!

Till next time!

Dreamer's Philosophy: Age Seventeen

"Age isn't how old you are, but how old you feel." - Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

If that were the case, I would be 10 or 60 years old by now (Either one would be a great prospect). People who believe that turning a year older, is a milestone. And that everything changes. Every year is a new beginning, a new book. People write their own books, they define and shape the life by the decisions they make and the choices they take. Why write a story if you're going to write a crappy one? It's simple. You don't.

I'm seventeen today. Stuck at home with almost bearable itching *shakes fist at bath wash I'm allergic to* , a houseful of cats and the memory of hobbies which I've put on hold for a long time. I've lost my passion for music, craft, and even reading. Sometimes I wonder why I bother studying subjects which I'll never pursue later on in life. Sometimes I wonder why life is so empty and meaningless. And then I wonder if the reason why my life is the way it is, is because I've given up on everything that matters to me. The problem is that I'm not quite sure what matters to me anymore.

I don't celebrate my birthday(s) anymore.
image

There's nothing worth celebrating. I'm older, but non the wiser. But thank you to all the people who wished me well :)

Maybe if you've figured out what life is all about, you can let me know. Because I haven't got a clue. Trust me, to make a supposedly happy occasion in life depressing, haha.

But yeah, maybe I'm being dramatic, but I have every right to be :P

My dad wants to give away the kittens,

Just so you know, if you take the kittens, I'll be in the basket with them. We're a one package deal. HAHA.
*Hisses "They're mine!"* Just kidding. Not really... MY PRECIOUS.  Am I the only one who thinks that Gollum is creepily cute? Also, why is everyone but me wearing contact lenses? -___-
image

I've already started the draft for the book smackdown (Bet you thought I forgot about that), but let me warn you that it will solely focus on J.K Rowling and Rick Riordan's books because there isn't much to debate about in the other series.

Chinese New Year is coming, and you know what happens then. The question "So...what are you going to do after SPM?" will arise. I have only got the slightest fuzz of what to study in college (no university for me), the options being cosmetology, business, journalism or IT. I doubt I'll ever get a scholarship, because I'm an average student at best.

A Short Haul:
I went to a few places yesterday, and the day before, so here :) The Daiso outlets stated are the ones in Aeon Bukit Tinggi and One Utama.


I've been searching for hair shears for a while now, and managed to find this in a stationery shop I used to frequent when I was younger. They sell scissors like these on hairdressing.my but it was about RM 18, but I'm on a online shopping ban now (which is why everything is bought on the spot, LOL)

Anyway, I woke up with itchy eyes yesterday (The effects of hair poking me in the eyes) and I was in a bad mood, so I did the dumbest thing I have ever done and snipped off my fringe till I was satisfied. DON'T ever do this, if you ever find yourself in that position. I might as well get blunt bangs now :( Once I actually looked at myself in the mirror..
image
Flying Blackjack, what have I done?! 

And the end to my tragic story. *sobs* Now my naturally straight hair is wavy in the fringe area! What sorcery is this?! I guess I have to straighten my bangs now :( And ask my Mum to cut my bangs in the future, and keep the shears far, far away where I can never reach them.

The good thing about my hair is that it grows like weed (the one gardeners despise, not the one people smoke, HAHA) so it would probably look normal in a week or two *wipes sweat from brow* 



Two Lipice Sheer Color. I've read good reviews about them, and they're true! :3 It's a color changing lip balm that leaves a bit of a stain even after you wipe it off. Not shimmer too (although they have one in Shimmer) which is great.

Nano White Intensive De-Pigmentation Serum
Bought this from Guardian. I need it for the pimple scars I have that aren't going away :(
I think it's working but not as fast as I want it to.

Storage bag from Hinode - RM 5.
To throw all the makeup junk I have inside.
Polka-dotted red storage box, to store more things that are lying around. :)
Daiso - RM 5


Pantene Pro-V leave on conditioner
RM 6

12 hairbands set from Diva - RM 13
It's difficult to find really stretchy hairbands, and Temptation is out of stock for those :(

Lipice in Lemon, it smells like Strepsils D: 


A mini torchlight keychain, for future camping trips :) It's a great thing to have especially when it's night time before you know it and you don't have a torchlight with you (which happens to me at every camp -_-)
Daiso, of course.

Yet another one from Daiso, a hair crab clip :D It's large too and quite firm, unlike most of the flimsy hair clips I find.

Another spray bottle, but really I have a purpose for buying them.

Daiso folding comb. Handy to carry about in my pocket :D

I'm not sure why I bought this embroidery thread, since I haven't even started using the other one yet O_o. But I'm getting back on the craft wagon, so we shall see.

A mirror, for its intended purposes :P

Sunsilk Leave In Spray Conditioner. I got this for RM 13.90, it's a bigger bottle and I had a RM 5 voucher :3 

Detergent for Puff and Sponge. Everyone in the beauty blog community is raving about this, and it's sold out in most outlets so I'm glad I got my hands on it :) I think this is a repackaging or a slightly different one, because the old one was blue.

STICKY SWEETS :3 YUM YUM! 
Honestly, I'm not crazy about it, but I do like eating them from time to time.

Blueberry flavor <3 One of my favorites. Most of my favorites are citrus-y fruits and berries.


Off Cut Special (Passion Fruit) for RM 5 :) 
It looks like a lung, but trust me, it's not. 

One is for the family, another for the Wongs and the last for friends :)


This pizza flavored Pringles are DA BOMB! 
This tasted so amazing, I finished the whole can already. 
From Cold Storage. It's a pity they don't sell this in local malls and supermarkets :(
Pretty pricey though, RM 7.50 for 169 g.





Himalaya had a special offer going on, so we (Me and Dad, since we're the ones who use the products) got these for RM 40. I love Himalaya, although their items are on the pricey side, it still works better than most acne/skincare products I've tried so far.

I know this might seem like a lot and that I shop too much (which I do *guilty face*) but I'm a bargain hunter and I usually buy things that I actually use. Haha :P

Well, happy birthday to me!

 Let's hope no one does that to me, like I do to other people all the time. HAHA.

I'm 3-4 books behind on my Goodreads reading challenge D: *cue dramatic gasp* BOOKS, here I come! 

Till next time!
