I applaud her vocals and her songwriting because there’s always this… quality to it. When you get hooked—or re-hooked—on one of her songs, you just have to keep listening to it. Takes you to an otherworldly place, if you close your eyes for a moment. Makes you forget what you were doing for a bit, and that you’ve a lot to do yet.

On Some Nights--
I don’t feel like doing squat. I should be doing my readings, but the thought of working on school-related things is currently making me cringe. I can’t seem to bring myself to work on useful or purposeful projects right now. It’s a weird feeling. As if I’m trying to prolong this moment (of wasted time) so that the night might seem longer; if I start to work now, that...

I just slept for like… 15 hours straight. I passed out yesterday at around 6:30-7:00pm and woke up this morning at 10:30am. Geez… All I did yesterday was read a bit of my overdue readings… but better than nothing, I suppose. Man! I was going to practice singing and guitar because no one was home.. and maybe record something.. poop. And now everything I eat tastes funny....
I always had the worst luck with schedules. And I always seem to end up with an exam on the very last day of exams. I didn’t even know we HAD school on April 29. Sigh. - PSY210H1S: Tue Apr 12, PM7-10, EX100 - PSY230H1S: Mon Apr 18, PM2-4, WEST - ENG201Y1Y: Tue Apr 19, PM2-5, RW117 - ENG150Y1Y: Wed Apr 27, AM9-12, EX200 - ENG252Y1Y: Fri Apr 29, PM2-5, EX310 With this, I will be taking...

I’ve discovered that I like feline features. So I’ve conjured up a list of cats that I might want to raise…. - Siamese Cat (with lilac point features; the blue eyes are my favourite) - Toyger (adorable “toy tiger”; developed from crossing various domestic Tabbies) - Bengal (hybrid cross of a domestic cat and the wild Asian Leopard Cat) - Savannah...

I am currently feeling the crushing weight of school, amidst all the readings I’ve lost track of. Honestly, I haven’t been managing my time well at all this semester. I have yet to catch up on my readings, I’ve been missing class more than usual (it’s almost turning into skipping now), I’ve been wasting more time (not even wasting it on USEFUL things, like singing...
My nephew has a faulty persona. He doesn’t know how to properly act in social situations because of the way he grew up, and now that it’s stuck it’s hard to fix. A persona, taken in the psychological way (Jungian term), is a constructed mask or “social face” that one presents to the world, meant to make an impression on others during interaction while not revealing your full self to them (because...

- Children are not mini-me versions of their parents. - Girls don’t always need to fit into the socially constructed label of ‘girl.’ - Just because you haven’t accomplished much so far doesn’t mean you can’t do much in the future. - Assumptions made on abilities are stupid if they have not yet been fostered to their full potential. - I am not ready yet,...
Top Three Misconceptions
Three things that people always assume wrongly about me: 1) That I am younger than I am. 2) That I am smart and studious. 3) That I study life sciences (or like math and science). When they get to know me, their misconceptions change. But the second one still remains - people always think I’m smart and studious. Rather than being miffed that people are assuming wrongful things...

Second night in a row. Don’t know if I can sustain myself another day without sleep, but I kind of need the time, and I don’t seem to feel tired. But I don’t think I’ll risk the chance of falling asleep on the subway and missing class (missed this morning class too much), or falling asleep during my midterm. Readings not even halfway done. So behind in readings. Too...
All I Can Say
Is that I didn’t mean to, but I did. Again. That seems to be all I can say For now.
C.S. Lewis Song - Brooke Fraser
If I find in myself desires nothing in this world can satisfy I can only conclude that I, I was not made for here If the flesh that I fight is at best only light and momentary Then of course I’ll feel nude when to where I’m destined I’m compared Speak to me in the light of the dawn Mercy comes with the morning I will sigh and with all creation groan As I wait for hope to come for...
I have symptoms of peptic ulcer, but it’s off and on. And quite obviously I don’t actually have an ulcer, or I might have died by now (untreated for years and years; I’ve had abdominal pains on empty stomach since childhood) - or somehow it’s healed on its own? I don’t know. I don’t think I have one. I get these pains when I’ve either gone without food...
My right cheek right under my eye is twitching of its own accord, and won’t stop. It feels really weird. Facial spasms? Lol.
Guys and ears
Have you noticed that the ear-blush is almost exclusive to males? I tried to research the reason but to no avail. So does anyone know why, when guys blush, it extends to their ears (makes it red and heated)? From what I’ve seen so far, it’s not common among girls. Well, I’ve never seen a girl blush with her ears, so.. Anyone?
I suck at it. I actually don’t really know how to make friends. I don’t think I’ve initiated more than five friendships during childhood, so the habit of letting people come to me stuck. Now I’m not sure how to get out of it. I’d be escaping my comfort zone. I have yet to make one - ONE - friend in university who isn’t Korean. I don’t even have...
I am going to the bathroom much more efficiently than before. Hehehehehehhe. You might not want to hear it, but I’d like to proclaim that I am continuously progressing out of constipation (since childhood, really). It’s been a problem. Yeah, you might not have wanted to hear that. But deal with it, cuz this is my blog. Haha.
I tend to avoid it for as long as possible. Anything I should be doing right now I’m probably not doing. Terrible. Hard to fix. But must correct.
Some take my aggression far too literally. (Joseph Choi). Some don’t think it means much. (David Kim). Others play along. Let me tell you about the way I express my aggression. Usually, I exaggerate it, purely because it’s the easiest emotion for me to get across to other people. Terrible, I know. But right now I’m more wired towards aggression than empathy, and unless I...
