Yay Ipod :D

Haha I am officially a proud owner of an iProduct :P
In other words I don't have a brain and decided to spend a lot of money on something that doesn't give a lot back.. Im sure in economics they have a term for this type of good.. Veblen good? Okay maybe not that extreme but you get my point :)

Just got back from watching A-Team with my dad :D, I have to admit, apart from the crude plot and overall lack of logical thinking on the director's part, it was a decent movie. Why? Because of the non-stop action, explosion and general display of male vulgarity. I rate the movie a 9.9 out of a possible 10, but then again that is pretty biased because I was dying to see a movie, to feel the hard and uncomfortable chair they have, to see the advertisement before the movie, to listen to the boos and cheers of my fellow viewers. I was so desperate to just go to a cinema I would have watched Eclipse XD. Oh and I love how A team referenced so many things!!, Like when the psychologically unstable Capt Murdock referred to Avatar and blue people, and when C.I.A agent Lynch referred to the AC-130 Sceptre, remodeled from the original C-130 Hercules transport plane and how the explosion was "similar to Call of Duty". At that point I found myself and about 3 dozen other CoD fans let out a hearty laugh, showing off the fact that we were proud owners of the popular FPS. Also I met one of my old friends that I met at a debating class, he goes to Rangitoto :), funny how small the world is (or possible just NZ).

My holiday you may ask? Well, let me summarize it for you in a very brief yet meaty chunk (SARCASM) .

Wake up at 11 am
Run Shower and Eat for 1 hour
Play Counter Strike with old friends until about 5
Deciding against doing anything useful, goes out for another run
Shower again
So tired after the run that doing anything constructive just seems out of the picture
Play some CS
Eat dinner
Watch some youtube/big bang theory
Sleep at 1/2 am.

Yes yes very boring. I know.
No quote for today, I cbb lol..

Well, I've reactivated my facebook, for now :). At least I have a bit of self control now =P so I can just deactivate it anytime without feeling any regret =S. Well this term has been ummm, interesting. Turns out my grades are actually alright, nothing to boast about tho. Ok Im going to go make myself some breakfast and continue this post a bit later today. :)
Later that day...

F*ck I've had nightmares (Im not kidding, this is so bad.) for the past few days about my grades, the worst one was getting 3 for Economics, 3, In the nightmare I was like freaking out lol T_T I actually woke up in cold sweat... Jeez, turns out its been pretty average so far, I hoped for more but maybe I should start being content with what I have ~_~.

Today we had this Otago Science quiz, it was probably the most retarded quiz I have ever taken lol. Im not going to go into detail about it today, really tired idk why... I just want to go to bed.

Bored at home

Well, nothing happened today so idk what to say... =S I ended up being so bored I climbed to around the balconies of the whole house, like spider man. Im never trying that again, a) The Neighbours probably thought I was mentally handicapped, b) I NEARLY missed and could have fallen to my death c) The balconies are made from this... stony sandy mixture, with little rocks poking out, so it hurt really bad when I leaned all my fat against it.
I should start revising for IOCs but I wanna see what Mr Silver has planned first.. >_>
So yeah, thats about it ~_~
The Internet is like alcohol in some sense. It accentuates what you would do anyway. If you want to be a loner, you can be more alone. If you want to connect, it makes it easier to connect.
Esther Dyson, Interview in Time Magazine, October 2005
P.S I actually think the internet is more like a drug, once your onto it, you can't do without it. ~_~ It can be helpful and harmful at the same time =P

At the Library

Hmm. Im at the Northcote Library right now leeching their internet. I don't know why i'm here, maybe cause my exams start at 1:30... meh. My grandma is terribly sick and she went to get acupuncture treatment across the road, maybe thats why I'm here.. Oh yeah. My mum woke me at 7am this morning, and told me to get in the car, I was half dressed and still hadn't had breakfast. ==" She want's to buy me lunch cause apparently she thinks I did well in the exams. What a joke. These days I'm getting really freaked out with my mums behavior, it seems she congratulates me for everything I do, even things that aren't good!! ==".... Anyways, meanwhile im surrounded by old people, unemployed people, and little kids, this is the best library ever.

Yesterday night was... meh, dad got his present, and we celebrated all night. I just realized, he has never hugged me , NEVER lol.. I think thats normal for a dad i guess, not that he doesn't love me =P he is just really reticent and silent most of the time (at least I hope so). Oh yes and I got pretty drunk T_T, I went to bed at like, 9:20 which is pretty early. I still have a headache and its only 9:36 a.m.. ugh...

This morning I got owned by my grandma, lol, she laughed at the fact that I do IB and that I'm suppose to be smart. She asked, "If I take medicine 5 times a day (24hour) , what is the time interval in between the times I take the medicine?". I quickly replied, "well obviously the answer is 24/5 = 4.8 hours... so easy!"..
Lol I failed ahahaha. If you know the answer, write it in the comments =P
I'll probably add more to this post after the exams when I get home at night, but this is it for now.

P.S This quote is actually common sense and almost everyone can reply, "how about we try it on you" these days, I really like this quote cause its very very very true and its easy to understand, kinda balances the scale since yesterday's quote was so hard to understand xD.
Update of this post~

YES I FINISHED MY EXAMSSSS~~~~`. Woot haha Chinese was pretty alright, I was so nervous cause I thought I was going to get owned, thanks to Jack who "assumed" that the topic was going to be about Shanghai Expo haha. turned out all the available choices (usually IB gives 4) were about the Shanghai Expo, except different formats, one blog , one advertisement, and 2 letters. Frikin Chinese teacher so tricky hahaha. >_> Lucky I did some research just before the test. =P
I actually wrote quite a lot, lol way over the minimum word count, usually I have trouble writing over the word count. Now just need to concentrate on IOC, except I have a day off tomorrow, dunno what to do, wanna go hang out with friends but they all have exams >_> and the other AIC people are either too nerdy or too lazy lol (no offence!!)

Queen's Birthday!!

Every year (almost...) Queen's Birthday always happens to be on my Dad's Birthday, June the 7th. So every year we end up going somewhere, except this year =S. I don't know why, but I think my mum is getting tired of going outside and having a breath of fresh air, or maybe because my exams are still on (sigh). Anyways, we just went shopping early this morning.. for my Dad's birthday and to get him something nice =P. I realised I hadn't been out shopping with my family for soooo long, seems as if shopping was new to me o_o... The feeling of pushing the trolley and mucking around with my sister. I remember looking at the various goods on the shelves, like a caveman staring at fire for the first time.... I stared at the snack shelves for so long that the lady next to me started looking at me weirdly... and before I knew it, we were driving home. The feeling of living life in the slow lane hit me all of a sudden, and I wished I could just go back to chilling with my mates on a Sunday without having to worry about updating CAS or meeting an EE deadline.

While I am writing this post, I am waiting patiently for the cheesecake I just baked for dad. Ahahaha it was my mums idea that I should put on the apron again and make something for my dad, something I havent done since the age of 9. That time I could just barely reach the stove, and I was already making 韭菜盒子 haha. (Translated as "Chive Boxes", a fried pastry with chive fillings shaped like a big dumpling).

I just realised I had exams tomorrow, oh God, and I haven't even started revising for Chinese Paper 2 yet... Im hoping reading some past paper answers just before bed can get me through, but thats just wishful thinking. My main problem with writing Paper 2 is my limited vocabulary, 哎呀, 提笔忘字。。。

My mates went to Takapuna yesterday for a day out, but I couldn't go cause I had to "study"... If I had even a tiny bit of self control I wouldn't have procrastinated over Tribal Wars and Counter Strike. Haha this might sound so stupid, but I actually ended up going on Runescape again (thats how bored I was), almost 2 years after I stopped. WAIT! before you start judging me, I have an excuse! xD One of my mates from Westlake said he recently went on to see if he could sell his account for money (By money, I mean REAL money) , and he said there was a new skill out and it was pretty crap, but out of curiosity I went on to check it out. I swear the storyline is getting worse and worse as time goes on, what were the programmers thinking?!.... And their new tutorial is just.. lol...

Anyways, enough about me for one day, I might decide to edit this post later on today, but thats highly unlikely. Cause i'm just that fat and lazy ~_~*""

P.S I don't get the quote, if someone does please explain it to me in the comments xD.

Quote of the day:

End of Exams.

Well, almost the end :)
Tuesday will be my last exam, Chinese B SL Paper 2 T_T....
Well, its been quite a while since I last updated my blog, 2 months ago to be precise. I remember I started off blogging, with energy and excitement... Haha I feel ashamed to say this but now I think its become a burden. Don't worry, these 2 months has made me want to start blogging again.

Whats that? You want to know what I think I'll be getting this term? Here is what I honestly think I will be getting:
Mandarin B: 6
English A1: 6
Maths : 6
Chemistry : 6
Biology : 6 (hopefully)
Economics : 5.
So you see, I am probably getting a 35 this term... (T_T).... Ugh my grades are just going downhill, whats happening?!?!*
*(Maybe cause I decided downloading games again was a good idea, right before exams...)

I've just spent the past 2 days doing God knows what... and the only moment I actually enjoyed was yesterday when I spent some quality family time with my sister... haven't done that in so long... We watched Shrek 2 ^^.

Well, something interesting happened yesterday, I was watching watching movies downstairs yesterday, drinking my tea and generally just wasting my time. Then out of nowhere, this dog appeared in my backyard, I mean I know cats can climb over fences and stuff but dogs? o_O??.
Anyways, it went over to my 2 Worm farms with fresh compost inside, and decided to let out a load, right in front of the worm farms. TBH I actually don't like house pets... dogs, cats, fish, w/e... So this dog got me pretty angry, (But at the same time I was pretty scared to approach it, from all the stories of dogs giving rabies I've heard...) so I opened the door and shooed it away. but the strange thing is, it disappeared around the corner, and when I followed it around the corner, it was gone. GONE. O_O. You might think that it might have just ran away or something, but it was an enclosed fence, where could it have gone o_o". This was at night and I had just watched a horror movie with dogs in it.. So I had a hard time falling asleep... (Yes I know, I was scared hahaha)
You might think that this isn't interesting, but you know, AIC makes your life so astronomically boring that even the weirdest things can be interesting.
Back to talking about school..oh yeah, I failed to get into the Asian Science camp.. *SIGH*..
Now I just want to get into realise the dream, =P it sounds interesting...
I dont even know what I'm rambling on about anymore... Eco commentary, English IOC, Science Labs and Group 4 projects... ugh I hate my life.

Anyways, ciao for now... i just really want this term to be over T_T
