Gotta make my mind up

This has been an extremely awesome weekend. With the shopping with Evan on Saturday and yesterday being a super family day. Finally went back to church, think its a phase that I’m going through where I’m doubting everything. Cant do anything about it now anyway. So then we went for lunch at CM-PB at Dempsey hill. The food was FANTASTIC. Image

We had wagyu cubes, agio olio, and a half and half pizza. Half was beef half was duck. Then we had Ben & Jerry’s! (ahh my two favourite men). Went to Thomson Plaza too and went to the supermarket! Did I mention that I love supermarkets? ImageWent to play in the front seat of the car hahahah (i’m so cool) Image

Then dinner at the cousin’s house! Image

Told you it was a family day. 

Basically home now, feeling dizzy and cold. And there’s construction right outside my house at the carpark. Thought I could relax (not that I havent already been doing that) but mummy’s home, sick too. ugh. Missed the chinese compo test. So much for chinese o’s being 1 week away. BYE.

ps. Thanks to KimTan for delivering 5 cans of Pringles to my doorstep. PRINGLES. yayayy. The flavours are really exotic. Image

Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough

WELL HELLO. Got back from shopping with Evan and bought more clothes! Been buying a lot of stuff lately which is pretty bad. Last weekon Saturday, I went to town with Jo Image 

and bought a bunch of stuff. Sunday went shopping with the parents too. In those 2 days I spent about $150++ on clothes and accessories. 

Today, went shopping with Evan Image

and bunch a romper and a shirt and stuff yayz. Evan bought more haha. Image

also bought gong cha to satisfy the craving (and to make Denise jealous – but HEY I thought of her and bought her pens okay). Today was fun.

ps. Chinese is such a turn off.

My Faith is Weak.

Rant

Somethings been bothering me recently and its about religion. I think my faith has gotten very weak. I haven’t been to church in about a month and now it just seems like going back is such a burden. Look at catholics. (I’m not saying I’m not one of them and I’m not guilty of doing these things). They’re swearing on twitter, they are using God’s name in vain. Like wow your family is so holy, you go to church every Sunday, you’re in a society (is that what its called), you joined a community, you go to mass with all your friends all the time. You say that you feel so enlightened, so peaceful, so pure. But you come out of church, you punctuate your sentences with vulgarities, you bitch about other people. You use words like ‘goddamn’ for such trivial matters. Isn’t one of the commandments not to use God’s name in vain? Is this the image that catholics are portraying to people? You go for mass with friends but half the time you’re either talking to them, or dreaming and then after that you just go out with your friends and say “oh I went for mass, I’m a good catholic.” You go to church you’re one person, then you step out and its as if you have no morals, no values, no regard for what you supposedly learnt during Catechism. I USED to be proud to be a Catholic. Church USED to be my second home, my comfort zone. What is happening.

Today

So anyway, the school week has ended. Tuition tmr though, yuck. Mother is also being very anal and very strict about everything omg give me a break. I know its good for me and all but sometimes I just want to sit on the sofa or in my room with a good book and not be bothered. Been studying my ass off the past month I want to be left alone this once. 

Today we had DISC profiling results and career talks. The DISC thing is very ACCURATE. And I’m a high D. (yes I’m bossy). So anyway, Mr Alvin was like saying that at home, I’m the kind of person that doesnt talk much and pretty much likes to do all the things by myself and be in control. Which is pretty true right now. But I guess I developed the not talking thing because my mom doesnt really like to talk and real stuff but she does make stupid comments like ‘oh my leg is itchy.’ ‘oh im sleepy’ and it kinda pisses me off. Anyway, ya, DISC profiling is good. I’m got DISC for the public one, DSCI for the private self one and DSIC for the mirror self one. Image

I am in love with you

“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves.”

“You realize that trying to keep your distance from me will not lessen by affection for you.”

“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”

“I’m in love with you,” he said quietly.

 

“Augustus,” I said.

 

“I am,” he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. “I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”

“The world is not a wish-granting factory.”

“What a slut time is. She screws everybody.”

“Oh, I wouldn’t mind, Hazel Grace. It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you.”

“The marks humans leave are too often scars.”

Just finished reading The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. My mind has been blown. Outlook on life has kinda changed a little. But I think this is probably the first time I have ever been so in love with a book that isn’t of a sci-fi genre. (Also the first time a book has made me cry). Think John Green really did an amazing job writing with the mind of a 16 year old girl with cancer. And Augustus Waters. Oh. My. God. I am in love with a fictional character. His wit and his love for Hazel ahhh I cannot….(you’re probably judging me for this) but  I get very attached to my books and shows. 

Also, new found love for a different kind of genre. Usually I only read sci-fi books like the Divergent series or like The Hunger Games or like the Alex Rider series which isn’t very sci-fi-ey. But I realised the thing that keeps me reading is the love/relationship thing they usually have going on haha (other than alex rider, that one is just cool). Ahh need a new book to read…suggestions?

La Familia in Town

Hello! So here’s the video I have been putting off. But I finally edited it and its ready. Its not very pro-y (not that it’d ever be) because I did it at like 1230 in the morning on a school night! (oh badass in da house_)

If you’re wondering what La Familia is, its just the name of the group chat we have with the 6 of us on whatsapp. Yup. Enjoy I guess? Haha please, no repercussions.

okay back again. School is pretty yucks because of the papers we’re getting back. I thought I’d do better for Emath cause I was actually ready for that paper. IF THIS IS THE KIND OF MARKS I’M GETTING WHEN I ACTUALLY STUDY, THEN WHAT AM I GONNA GET FOR THOSE THAT I DIDNT STUDY FOR ME. crap. Pretty scared for tmr but IM NOT GONNA THINK ABOUT IT.

School is actually pretty fun, despite all the returning of papers, I actually look forward to it every day haha. Friends do wonders to your life.

Last week was pretty hectic. After thursday, had to stay back for internal open house on friday. Then Saturday went out with Jo and did some major shopping. Haha okay it wasnt that major but I haven’t gone shopping in forever. Here’s what I bought (because it seems like you care /ha/): A forever 21 white knitted top, a cotton on blue cardigan, eyeliner, new eyepiece (finally) and new earrings! Then on Sunday went shopping with the fam and got a new dress, tshirt and blouse. YAY. Haha I now have clothes to last me a long time before I have to go shopping again haha.

Looking forward to the date with Evan and Denise on Saturday but I have to go through chinese tuition TWICE this week. Not once, but TWICE. ugh. And it also means we’ll be a week closer to chinese Os.

Gonna edit the vlog and post it. Brace yourselves. Also, discovering the wonders of non sci fi books like The Fault In Our Stars. Completely in love with Augustus Waters’ wit and amazing sexy boy-ness.

I can’t believe I have a crush on you
