openning

Hi!

Why black and white you say? I’m at UNI that’s why == To be honest, I kinda like seeing the printed lines, it makes me feel like I’m back in school!

Holidays are over and if you’ve been keeping a close look at my past posts, you’ll know I’ve been helping out at a takeaway shop =) naturally, this means that I’ve had a little income:

rich

No, seriously, just a little. I'm not rich! But I’ve become stingier with my money just cause its hard earned!

In my spare time, I’ve been folding a lot of roses out of paper. I’ve been perfecting my pentagonal one I showed you earlier, not much success yet, but I know I’m close to achieving my goal! Here’s the latest version:

C360_2010-07-20 22-51-35

Unfortunately, I’ve been practicing/experimenting too much on this one and forming the petals caused it to rip. In future folds, I’ll definitely need to wet fold!

This semester I really need to work hard. I did miserable last sem and can’t afford to mess up again! Who knows what the consequences will be then!!

Actually, last sem i was doing quite well… up until the final exam. For one subject I had a 90+ average :( *poof* its gone!

So I’ll need to add oil!! (refer to previous posts for definition) *ties up head band*

add oil

So for this sem, my study plan is to actually do the tutorial stuff (questions and stuff) before the tutorial. Hopefully that way I understand more and won’t fail miserably again. *spank spank* work!!

working

But i was a bad boy last sem… Skipped many lectures and crammed right before a quiz (it did work! but this habit was bad for the finals and my results show =(  ). But why would I skip lectures? Cause they are boring. There’s a person in front and they talk. YAK YAK YAK… == And when I’m in a lecture i get distracted!

Culprit 1:

pencil

A pacer and rubber. That’s enough to make me not listen and draw all over my books.

What do I draw? Well isn’t it obvious? == they attract other peoples attention too, which is embarrassing and bad since they won’t learn either!

Culprit 2:

daydreaming

Daydreaming. So when people start staring at my drawing ridden page, i flip it over and look at the lecturer. I listen for a while then i notice myself to focus on other stuff and think:…

“oh look at that lamp… it looks nice. I could use one of them in my room!”

“Why is there so much noise outside? HAHA I wonder if people are going to randomly run across the room!”

“What’s that girl talking about? *eavesdrop*”

“That’s the ugliest phone I’ve ever seen!”

“is that guy wearing nail polish?! (don’t laugh, I’ve really seen a guy with nail polish on his toe nails… navy blue O_o)

Yep, I’m easily distracted

Culprit 3:

phone

My phone. You might be surprised this isn’t the number one culprit. I mean there’s EVERYTHING on my phone. Games, videos, pics, apps STUFF.

Reason why this isn’t the first couple of culprits is it openly gives away the fact that I’m not listening or paying attention. Some lecturers get really angry if they see you playing with your phone. That is why I strategically sit up the back behind people XD.

Just today I managed to get wi-fi working on my phone. Before it wouldn’t work outside of the sci-tech library. Thing i did today was simply walk out of the library without disconnecting my connection!

It managed to stay connected for most of the time away from the library (had no connection in the first room, had connection in the second, then lost it and couldn’t connect again). So its very patchy, but it kinda works. Hopefully this doesn’t mean this will happen to me:

car

Nah! I’m quite adept in texting/using my phone while walking. I haven’t walked into anything while doing that (Nor have I been hit by cars)!

OH! one more thing I’ll like to share: If you’ve been living under a rock, chances are you wouldn’t know much about tablets. if you are living under a rock, get googling pls. Sure the most popular one around now is the Ipad, but there were PLENTY of tablets before the ipad *looks over to my tablet*. Problem is the previous ones were all that refined and definitely needed to be slimmer, lighter and to the point.

So *drum roll* here’s the Notion Ink –Adam. Quite a weird name, but it is quite a device. It has a special screen: it can be used as an LCD and (wait for it…) can be used as an e-ink screen! So basically, it has a screen like a normal computer and it can switch to the screen similar to the ones on e-readers (Google it rock dwellers!). Energy consumption is 20% lower too!

The screen is called Pixel Qi and isn’t actually made by this company. If you have a netbook, you might be able to swap out your screen for one of these special screens

Its portable like the Ipad and will run android (no access to the market apparently =(  ) Its quite a good looking device (and well specced!) So I definitely know where my hard earned money will be going at the end of the year!

Here's a pic and link if your interested

LOL at sudden advert from me. Just thought I’ll share some amazing tech with you :) I like using things that are unique!

So, I’ll let you know how my study plan thing goes at the end of the week. I’m quite busy this coming weekend, so if I’m not lazy, it should be up by Friday. Anyways, please leave some comments:

sore

Hi!

Oh… My body is still a little sore from yesterday’s party/gathering. Its quite a unique gathering we had! Let me try to cover most of the details!

Anyway, it’s Rea’s birthday tomorrow and we celebrated early because some of us have Uni today. I don’t think I’ve done a friend interview for Rea yet… but' I’ll go over that a little now:

brithday

First off, Let me say a big happy birthday to Rea! (of course I know its tomorrow… but we’re not too far off 12 midnight now!)

Rea is quite an amusing person, she’s into anime and horror movies! (I’m kinda into that stuff too!) But! She has a very fun personality and makes a good grudge!:

grudge

I actually have a real pic of her being the grudge (from high school, and one of her facebook profile pics are grudge-y)

So that's a brief cover for Rea (I know I’ve been lazy and haven’t really done much more friend interviews…)

So here’s what we did yesterday: Ice-skating and dinner. Ice skating was alot of fun and it left us all very tired afterwards! I’m a great skater!!:

skateLOL jokes, I’m not that good… But at least I kept myself safe and didn’t stack it!:

skate2I’ve had a bad experience with skating… I was skating once and a person practicing spins cut my leg =( yea… it was quite scary. I’ve also heard people get their fingers cut off when they stack it and leave their fingers out…

Here’s some a pic of us on the rink! (yellow closer to us is Rea, the other yellow is Carmen, brown in front of us is Chris, black on the left is… James?):

IMG_20100718_174613

Anyway… After that we headed to our organised place for dinner. But it turns out it was on holiday (Moral of this story: always book ahead… or even just call to see if they are open). If your interested in going there here’s a link we referred to: http://grabyourfork.blogspot.com/2007/08/ryos-noodles-crows-nest.html

IMG_20100718_192750

Bad thing was it was located in a quiet street with no other choice (well there was a thai place next door, but we never eat thai and it looked dodgy…). So we went back to Chatswood for dinner (ended up having Korean)

Carmen had to leave early so me and Chris left with her (she might get lost, kidnapped, killed etc etc XD)

So yea, that's about it… I know my drawings are a little crap… haven’t drawn for a week ==” Rea wants comments! (Actually I do… you know…)

rest

Hi!

*Sigh* I’ve gone through one week of working all 5 days. I must say, its very tiring!! I don’t even do 9-5. just 2 hours each day. But the 2 hours is very busy and you know, Asian employers don’t let you stop.

Anyway, let me explain the title. Well, I get very annoyed at parents who let their children wonder around in a cafe, restaurant or any public area. I’m not saying they can’t socalise in a park or something, but in a restaurant, the kids wonder EVERYWHERE… and eventually get pretty close to me/us, and god know where they’ve been and what their hands have touched!

SOME kids are ok, but some can be annoying. Let me show you a nice effective way to handle this!:

1

So here is a nice Office lady (OL) trying to have a pleasant meal… All posh looking place and nice location… Then:

2

Some random kid(s) walk up to you and stare (Note: that isn’t me… I just like those colours…). I always wonder what their thinking about when they do this.

BUT! Whatever they are thinking about, its quite disturbing having a kid (or anyone really) staring at you like that.

3

What’s worse is the kid does something to get your (and probably their parent’s) attention. This can range from crying, whining or rolling on the floor.

Its very annoying because people around you instantly think this kid belongs to you… Shit, kid you ain’t cute doing that. And here’s my remedy:

4

Take your bag out and search through it.

The kid will think: “OMG candy!” and will make a “Puss-in-boots” face so you give them candy or something… NOT CUTE (Puss is much better!)

When the kid is close enough…

5

BAM!! Spray them with pepper-spray!!!

LOL, of course, this is all a joke. We don’t want kids to roll on the floor crying…. Wait they do that without pepper-spray.

But on a serious note, I SERIOUSLY think that parents should look after their kids properly… I’ve seen some poorly disciplined kids.

So that brings me to the end of a rather quick post. I haven’t been on the computer (desktop) much, because its world cup and Dad is hogging the comp for emails… I’ve had to turn to my hobbies to kill time (refer to previous post for details). Sorry the pics aren’t clickable, I’m too lazy to upload them… they’re simple pics anyway! Not comic strips. Now hurry up and comment (COMMENTS PLS!!) before the crazy women sprays you:

Hello! Sorry I don’t have a cover and finishing pic for this post, instead, I’ll be posting diary/logs of what happened when I wasn’t on facebook for a few days.

So, last month, I capped my internet one week early. You know that is kinda painful, loading pages take forever and well, it just sucks =(

Out of curiosity, I thought I’ll quit facebook till my internet renews (which was about 7 days). In the end, I didn’t do the full 7 days, on the last day, I logged on to see if there were changes to a party organized by me =)

Lets cut the crap and see what I’ve wrote!

 

Day one

From Windows Live Writer

YES =) the 28th of June was my birthday!

I celebrated with lots of people =) With my friends, I celebrated once on the 27th and once on the 4th of July. With family (and their friends) on the 28th. I think this is one of the most celebrated birthdays!

 

Day two

From Windows Live Writer

Hmmmm… Not much to say about this one, I rant about Dad enough

 

Day three

From Windows Live Writer

Again, not going into the Dad’s thing.

BUT! I do hope the court case ends soon, its been half a year and its STILL going!

The defendant has 28 to provide any more evidence to the judge, then another trial will happen (hopefully the next trial will end this misery…)

LOL at the judge XD

Day four

From Windows Live Writer

Hmmmm, yea that burn is healing now. Some of the scab area is peeling off and LUCKILY, there seems to be no scar so far =) It doesn’t seem to hurt at all either!

 

Day five

From Windows Live Writer

And this is the final facebook free day =P

I actually like this post very much =) So anyway, here are some pics of my origami ^^ yes, these are my own made models, so they are the only ones on Earth!!! (wow that sounds so awesome!)

Red rose

This is (so far) my favourite pic of my self made rose =) To be honest, it was an accidental shot. I never realised it will turn out this good looking XD

Black rose 1

Here’s another one. This time its black! People on flickr seem to like this one more (not sure why), but I personally like the red one more

Here’s a little secret I’ll let you see, I haven’t even posted this on flickr yet! Its a pentagonal version of my rose! Shhhhhh, don’t let anyone know about this ;)

_IGP4815

Enough of the roses, here’s a pic I took to test out the camera and settings.

Boxes

I currently use it as my wallpaper. Mum suggested that the boxes were placed to orderly, but I think it looks OK now.

And finally:

13-06

This one was edited in Photoshop. Carmen was doing Partial black and Whites, so I decided to give it a try. Orange is my favourite colour so I coloured that one!

You may notice that I have dark backgrounds on most of my pics… I like my pics like that ^^ makes it look clean. Maybe I’ll grow out of it after using my camera more.

So this brings me to an end of a length blog post. I’ve noticed my blog posts are getting longer each time. I should break them into smaller posts or something =S

Anyway, please comment (my comment pls pics are on the diary entries)

EDIT: I’ve finally found out how to make my blog post area wider! Now I can put in larger pictures!

Cya soon!
