moon x stars

It's my first Saturday staying in college. It's actually going okay considering I've been in my room reading my Economics textbook, trying to make sense of it all.

Right now, I'm trying really hard to not make any sudden movements because I'm experiencing leg cramps and it's the kind that if you move a millimeter, it sends what to me, seems like an electric shock all over my body. Which is not really pleasant. It actually hurts.

My hair is up in a bun and pulled back with my favourite thin plastic pink headband. I cleared my desk so that I can actually study on a proper table. And yeap, since July 12th, I've never sat in this miserable blue chair. 'Til now. I've always studied on my bed and that always resorts to me drifting off into a deep slumber. WELL D'UH ?

I have Soap & Glory's eye brightening serum under my eyes for the eyebags I've been lugging around since the start of college and so it now looks purple. Like I got punched in the eye, only it's sparkly.

Just took a dinner break and Amal (<- click for her blog) stopped by. Talked about random stuffs from sleepovers to awkward cousins. Such a fun girl, she is. It's now 11:30 and I'm supposed to continue studying but this whole blogging thing is my way of procrastinating. And being my lazy self.

Hmm what else..

I gots me self a new camera !! The Olympus Pen. Planned to get it before Raya and my duit raya covered half the cost (which my mum then paid for the rest for it, bless her!). I love it ! I've always wanted a camera for myself and myself only and I finally do. Can't wait to experiment with it. I just haven't had the chance to ! Will try and go around snapping photos during the whole 'Olympics' next week. Exams are in 2 weeks and before that, we have a whole week of break (read: study leave) and I've doubt that the teachers are going to give us revision work to prep us for the Sem Exam so basically that one week of break will be hopefully productive. Hopefully.

Most TV shows have returned with their new episodes and I'm about the only person who hasn't seen the new episodes of HIMYM and I'm trés sad ! I'm allowing myself a day next week to go out and shop and eat and have fun and watch all the new episodes and the rest of it to study. I sound so teruk being all studious but dude, you'll be too if you were in this place crawling with scholars. They're.. everywhere. It's only logical for me to work 10x harder to atleast be at the same wavelength as they are. Maybe even more which is quite unnerving. 

I sound so cliché. ON TO THE NEXT

I have Adele's Hometown Glory on now and I luv it. I luv her. I luv her accent and I luv how she has this whole 'So what?' attitude. Beats all the crap we have on the radio anyway.

I'm on different topics every paragraph and I dunno why ! I'm trying to blog as much as I can because I feel like I'm the only one blogging here AND have a Tumblr. Like, with words. Besides Jan. WHERE ARE MY FELLOW BLOGGERS (READ: Ila!!!!!!) ?

That wasn't an actual link, btw. I was trying to be hilarious.

Other than that, college has done me good. Also, maybe because I have Diyana as a chaletmate. She pretty much influences all of us to study. Sometimes je ah. Sometimes, I'll just go to sleep hahahahaha. I've been eating way too much for someone my size. Serious doh. I shouldn't have opened the 2nd tin of jam tarts. Yeap, finished the first one single-handedly. Like a pro. Gah !

I just realised that September is the month where most students who intend to study overseas have probably already gone overseas. I know some people who have left for the UK. Which means, this time next year, my seniors are off on their university journey. And then the year after that, my batch ! And I can only hope for the best for my friends and I. BAPAK BEST DOH KALAU pergi sama sama. It's only been 2 months here and I'm more determined than ever ! InsyaAllah, if things go well, I shall finally be in the UK to further my studies like how I've always wanted to since I was 7.

Am I boring you yet ?

Wonderland *

Hi everyone !

Sorry for the lack of posts, been busy in college. It's Hari Malaysia day today so..

Dear Malaysia,

As much as you can get too hot and you don't have Urban Outfitters here, I still love you dearly and don't worry; as much as I say I will, I don't think I'll live anywhere else (cough London cough) but here. Your food is too good to abandon for bland Western food. Teehee.

College has been robbing time out of my hands. I start college at 815 and finish by 4. And when I come back, I usually sleep. Til dinner. LOLOL. My chaletmates have established that quite clearly now. Kaveetha even said "I'm going to pull a 'Nadia'" and she meant sleeping. So by pulling a 'Diyana', you're studying and by pulling a 'Nadia', you're taking a nap. Says a lot, hm ?


Anyway, let's see if I can recap anything interesting....

... I'm comin' up empty.

OH. Ok, well there's the IELTS class. We only just started our IELTS class and it's okay, I like Ms Selvi, she's fun. I guess. She has a thing for the Punjabs in our class though. And then there's the whole snakes issue. Over the past week, we've had 4 sightings of snakes. Like, LEGIT snakes. One was found nearby (opposite Haniesha's chalet which is sebelah ours) and malam pulak tu ! So the college had some people to surround our house with sulphur which is apparently a repellent for snakes. I didn't know that..

And then, I HAD THE BEST SEAFOOD EVER. Went to Seafood Garden in Tanjung Malim on Monday (or wazzit Tuesday?) with 11 other people and sumpah doh, sedap gila mygod ! I foresee many many many more trips there. YUM

Sports Carnival has come and gone and it was the best !!! I had the best time with my fellow Garnetrons cheering on at almost all the games. Was most enthusiastic for the night events though.. All in all, I had such a good time and it was so nice to see everyone come together to support their fellow housemates playing sports.

Ok that's it for now. I'm going to go do research on History nao and then IDK. I'm actually sleepy. Maybe it's the mengundang weather.......
