7:36 pm - wah biang eh.
I realise that this journal is in want of much updating, so here I am.

Ohnoes - Am now tackling the wretch that is my UCAS personal statement. I have never been good at selling myself, so this whole thing is fairly painful for me; it's kinda like ANTM and they go "Why should you be America's next top model?", and the bimbo goes "Because I have, like, the confidence and the passion" and you cringe instinctively - it'll be 3412302183 more cringes before I finish this shit, I foresee.

Irrelevantly, Vic and I share a very special relationship:

vic. + downhill at dusk? says:
j what would i do without you?

js. / 'cos I can't see further than my own nose at this moment。 says:
you'd die, silly.

My response is followed by a hearty string of 'hahahaha's from him; I am afraid I fail to see the humour in my answer.

Ugh, I haaaaaate all the lousy muggertoads who are making me feel guilty for not having touched Lit S since prelims. Alright, I'm gonna go eat chips and slit my wrists now. Peace be with you all.

5:06 pm - autumn chapter in a novel.

Such a soporific day. Weird to think about how you'll have left in a matter of hours, and it's quite a damningly surreal idea, that of the distance expanding while the time we have left diminishes like a contracting accordion.

Maybe one day we'll outgrow this habit of using beauty as an excuse for our imperfections.

current mood: wistful.

This is where I decide I am f-ing sick and tired of staring at my history notes and decide, instead, to indulge in some band-whoring.

I think I've been extremely explicit with my complete awe/crazy love/slutdom for Tokyo Jihen/Shiina Ringo, so I will not talk about them in this entry. Will, instead, talk about other Japanese bands I have a great endearment towards, so if people singing about things you can't understand isn't your cup of thing, you might want to pass on this one. =)

squee.Collapse )

Studying sucks.

6:34 pm - felt so suicidal.
So I got sick of writing the CCA achievement statement thing, and started to whine to Victor about it.

hohumCollapse )

No prizes for guessing which CCA I was referring to in that one.

And no, not HISSOC. =)

And so, moments later, I am angsting with Rich.

bawl.Collapse )

In other news, Faith has phallic hair, and the way in which I am compartmentalising my life in that personal statement thing is slowly driving me nuts.

11:50 pm - I want a new life.
So Steph (to_crave) sends me this text message going "The Strokes were AWESOME", and the whole time I sit here mourning this sad excuse I have for a life. At this moment, Massive Attack's Teardrop comes on the shuffle, very appropriately. Hurrah.

Bitch. You owe me a shitload of photos and a bucket of Julian Casablancas's sweat. xD

7:30 am - bollocks.
Time is dribbling away like sand through the hourglass/The Days of Our Lives. It doesn't help that Mr.K likes to waste the first 5 minutes of every tutorial now emphasising on the fact that we have n+1 weeks = z days left to the prelims. Miserable, old sod.

I don't get why I bother to stick through with drama serials till the end, because the endings are always particularly disappointing. Just sat through a run of Goong (incredibly cute/funny Korean drama based on this comic series; modern day Korea's a constitutional monarchy in this, wtf!), and was, predictably, let down by the ending, which made me feel like I've set through a wonderful 10 course dinner, except that the smart alec chef decided to serve canned fruit cocktail for dessert, or something like that.

Am now facing perennial dilemma - To cut or not to cut (my hair)?

It's in its irksome puffy state now, but if I let it be, it has the potential to grow into something funky/something I could potentially cut into something funky by grad night. Hm. Choices, choices, choices.

In other news, have located auction of Hear the wind sing (Murakami) on ebay. Oh, the joys of a paypal account.

Right, I should head out to study now, have wasted away enough of the weekend.

12:10 pm - guillemots.
My favourite new band/new favourite band - watch here.


And I don't even know how to pronounce their name!


While I'm at it, some other music thing-things I've been obsessed with of late:

Smile, Lily Allen

Pull Shapes, The Pipettes

The Clock, Thom Yorke

And speaking of Thom Yorke, my little heart just died when that git butchered Radiohead on national TV. Oh boy. And, please, that Calling song has been overplayed at school concerts already, can? Just because you are goodlooking doesn't mean you can sing lousy songs like that.

2:48 pm - because I was tagged.
Here you go:

What is yours?
Explain yourself
Culinary: Coffee. It's guilt right? So it means consuming something you shouldn't really? So, coffee. Must have drank enough coffee to sustain China's coffee-drinking population during the common test week. It got so bad that I got a little twitchy during the History paper. Which would account for my atrocious handwriting in the essays. Or not.
Literary: Animorphs. Ok, maybe this is a passe guilt thing. But I was -crazy- over the Animorphs, I'd read every new book that came out, and I still remember roleplaying the characters in Primary school. Gawd, my ugly, ugly past.
Audiovisual: Gilmore Girls. Guilt because watching this came at the expense of common test mugging. =x Lorelai aka Laura Graham is gorgeous. And I think I like Jess a little bit more than Dean.
Musical: Speed. I always feel like I've done something bad everytime Nettaiya comes on my iPod. So, 'nuff said. I really, really like hiro's solo stuff though.
Celebrity: Scarlett Johansson. So......perfect. Actually, I'm not sure why I'm putting her name down, 'cos one should not have to feel guilty to be infatuated with the beauty that is Scarlett. But she's the first name that came to my head, so.

Now I tag:-

finearethefoxes pirahnas c_ookieman odditorium and to_crave

to complete this same Quiz, Its HERE.
