Great news guys! I passed my A1,2 test. So I don’t have to repeat it next term. :D
I went to NTU’s Open House today. No pictures unfortunately, there wasn’t a lot going on and I was too tired to get a photo. I don’t wake up so early in the morning anymore. I get a headache whenever I do. Is that a sign that I am lazy beyond hope. Definitely. Do I care? Nope.
After today’s Open House, I am really looking forward to enter into NTU and stay at the Hall. It’s an experience I really want to have! :D
Hopefully, I pass this semester without a hitch so that my place in NTU is confirmed. I still have a nagging fear in me that I might fail, but I am just praying for the best.
Anyway, there wasn’t much going on at the Open House, just talking to people and more people.
Today is also the day when I realise how expensive it is to travel to the other side of the world. I don’t know what to say really. My dream is so far away. There is also the issue on safety. *big sigh*
I am not a fan of cakes but I LOVE FRUIT TARTS!! The tangy taste of peaches, kiwis and strawberries with a good mouthful of cream! OH MY GOD.
Anyway, it was Alvin’s birthday celebration today. LOL. I felt like it was more of a family gathering and I am just there with my friends, crashing the family gathering.
My hair is in an ugly state. I can’t deal with it so I just let it do whatever it wants. I have an awkward smile. LOL.
That’s all for today. Going out again tomorrow to 18 Chefs. I hope its good. I am looking forward to Tuesday! :D
I like new things. There is just something about it being new that makes me happy. So as promised, here is a photo of Goethe-Institut. The new place is still undergoing renovations, so it looks like this.
I just had my German test last week, it didn’t go so well for me. My last ditch effort at studying wasn’t much use anyway. How do I put this. I feel that only 30% of what was taught in the past 8 weeks were covered in the test, I relied on inference skills and guesswork for the rest. Don’t even get me started on writing an email. I swear to God, I have never come across some of the vocabulary that was used in the test. Like WTF? Apparently, I am suppose to do lots of self-study before the test. Well, they didn’t say that. *grumbles* Right now, I’m just waiting for an email from my tutor to let me know that I failed and I have to go sign up for A1.2 again. *heavy sigh*
I haven’t had a proper break since exams ended last week. So I just feel really sick whenever I have to go to work. My colleagues are great, and the clients are agreeable. It’s just the work itself can be described as soul-sucking. Someone’s gotta do it I guess. Meh!
The Wi-Fi in my house is making me rage. My web-pages are not loading! God, I sound like a spoilt brat.
Ok. I know that the quality of my posts have always been sub-par. But recently, it went way below that. I don’t have a lot of inspiration to write crap posts for your entertainment. So bear with it.
I can’t sleep but I don’t want to do constructive shit like study for the German test in 17 hours time. So screw this. I’m just going to repeat it once more next semester.
I noticed that emotional posts makes for really bad posts. I should avoid making posts when I am in an emotional state. Hmmm…
I was having a chat with the ladies at school last week about the mechanism of liking a person. The thing that really baffles me is why guys always keep their distance after girls confess their feelings for them. Like, shouldn’t the guy feel happy that someone likes him? Someone appreciates you man. One argument could be that, maybe he thought that by distancing himself from the girl, it will diminish the feelings that the girl has for him. True to a certain extent, but speaking from experience, the girl would just resent you for doing that. Especially those who don’t give an answer. It takes a lot of courage for a girl to ask you out. Even if you don’t like her that way, turn her down nicely. Talk to her and help her move on. She is not going to run away crying or something. Women today can take rejection pretty well.
There is another thing about guys that I don’t understand. If I compliment them on their looks, they either take offence or just give me that awkward look. Hey. You are cute but I don’t like you that way. Everyone likes to look at pretty/handsome/beautiful things. I am just more vocal about it. Know how to take a compliment graciously.
At this age, I know when I like a person for their looks and when I like a person for their character and personality. I mean, sure, having good looks never hurt, but character and personality goes further. Not forgetting, charisma. Charisma and confidence is very important. If you had scrolled through my posts, you would know that I love Tom Hiddleston. He is not the most handsome actors out there. But his wittiness, humour and demeanor makes panties drop. I would like him to teach me some ‘delayed gratification’ anytime, anyday. *wiggles eyebrows* *cackles away*
Confidence is always good to have, but remember that there is a fine line between confidence and cockiness. So remember! Always be confident!
Moving on. I don’t know about other girls, but I would like to be able to hold a good conversation with my partner. One of the merits of a relationship is that couples support and help each other grow. I want to be able to talk about current affairs and share knowledge with my other half. I don’t want it to be a one-sided conversation where my partner always agrees with what I say or completely dominate me with their views. I think it is important to be able to discuss our different opinions and learn to see things from each other’s perspective. I feel that it will help build a strong foundation in a relationship. Or it will help both of us discover if we are compatible with each other.
In this modern society, we emphasize a lot on equality. So taking a heterosexual couple as an example, both the man and the woman should contribute equally in building the relationship. Not just one dominant partner giving his/her all while the other only receives. Sometimes, a relationship is also about reciprocation. Don’t just take but give back as well.
Tolerance and being able to compromise forms the cornerstone of a relationship too. Real life relationships are not the same as those depicted by movies and TV shows. That the one we like is perfect and meets our standards and expectations. Such is the expectation gap created by modern consumerism. We all have flaws and bad habits. There is also a thing about looks as well. I always like to say, “I won’t be that youthful looking in 15, 20 years time but at the same time you won’t be that handsome as well.” Learn to overlook the trivial things and you just might have a happier relationship. :D
On a side note, if I give up sleep just to do things with you. You better appreciate it. Because sleep is very important to me.
Today’s post didn’t turn out so bad afterall! But I find it cruel that I give such great relationship advice but am still single. *Tears up*
Im’ma just gonna lie in bed and ponder about deeper issues like what I want to eat tomorrow.
I was watching Pompeii on Thursday. Stunning visual effects with beautiful cast. They had some issues with the script though. I didn’t know that there was such a term known as holiday resort in AD 79. Whatever. The lead male character’s name is Milo. There is nothing wrong with the name. It’s just you know, I can never NOT associate the name Milo with this:
This chocolate drink. I grew up drinking, LOL. I can’t think about anything else. The association between the name and the drink is just too strong. The word Milo will forever be pronounced as ‘Mai Lo’ to me.
Oh did I mention that Kit Harrington who plays Milo is a hottie? But for some reason, he always have this trademark sorrowful look.
Noticed that he has this facial expression for lots of his photoshoot and It just kind of look weird to me. By the way, I totally approve of that facial hair he has. *thumbs up*
Ah I haven’t been up to much so far. I am still contemplating whether I should start on my German revision. Two more days to the test! Argh~! #ToStudyOrNotToStudy.
Oh and the school moved to a really nice building in Outram Park. I went and see the place. The exterior looks like a traditional shop house but with a modern interior. I totally love it! I don’t have a picture but I will try and get one this Tuesday.
I feel a strong urge to grow out my hair. I was getting some pizza the other day and then the staff greeted me with this, “What do you want Boy?”
I just looked at her in dumb-founded because I though my boyish appearance days were long over. Apparently not. It’s really weird when you have androgynous features. People get confused about your gender.*sniffs*
I need to get to bed now. I am off penny-boarding tomorrow afternoon! :D
Hey guys. So my exams ended. It didn’t end as well as I wanted it to be. But as long as I pass. I am okay with it. :)
The more important thing that I want for me is to be happy.
Which reminds me, I am most likely going to repeat A1.2 in German. Like meh! I can just try and do it intensively over the next few days since the test is on Tuesday. I need a miracle.
Mmmm. I do have a list of things that I want to do. Top of my list if to study German intensively. Subsequently, I want to go penny-boarding and kite-flying. I was getting the hang of penny-boarding when I had to put it on hold for school. Yeah. Well that’s second on the list.
I also want to do some kite-flying because its been on the list for far too long.
Next, I want to visit the cat cafe and play with some kitties. I definitely want to go watch 300: Rise of an Empire. They have some pretty epic quotes. Like:
Seize your glory!
If Death comes I’m Ready!
Yes Yes. Definitely that movie. Eva Green looks cool in that movie. I always enjoy a movie with strong female characters. :D
Then, its the usual, reading and watching movies and TV series.
I also want to learn to eat better so that I can have better skin. :D
Few things you should consider:
1. Why are you failing in school?
2. If you think your parent’s are discouraging of “artsy” things why do you think that is?
3. Do you have the dedication and the talent to pursue an art that can make you happy and for you to make a career out of it? If not, is it unfair for you to say that your parent’s are unsupportive of a dream you are unsure of yourself?
These are the three things I thought about before I considered going into entertainment. I started doing standup when I was SIXTEEN. From the ages of 21-22 I worked three jobs, was a full time student, wrote music, and was a stand up comedian on the weekends trying to get noticed.
My parent’s HATED what I was doing but they couldn’t say anything because of the time and effort I put into my craft.
so here’s the last question for you:
4. How bad do you want it?
