Archives for Month: November 2009

Hmm. I wanted to bring up something a little more web-related today. I haven’t had anything interesting happen in the past few days. Apart from going with my mum late at night for a drive to pick up my brother from a school disco where some girl was present who is supposedly his girlfriend but he won’t tell us who, and because my mum can’t drive all so well at night, and my dad works […]

Alright, alright, I’m officially heartbroken. You know the feeling when something finally, at long last, sinks in? And usually, depending on the situation, there comes tears.

I really miss Armor For Sleep. Since I discovered the news about their breakup (albeit a few weeks late), I’ve just been feeling like I’m sinking into a deeper hole.

Most of us grow up with music, loving certain bands, regardless of how we heard of them. […]

After watching Love Actually many, many times, it occurs to me how strange my Christmases are. They are usually spent with the family. Two years ago we went to Singapore and Indonesia, though, our Christmas was mostly in Singapore. Singapore is amazing at Christmas time.

I read Dayna’s post about Christmas – “How do you know Christmas is coming?” Dayna lives in Singapore, and Australia’s streets don’t look so amazing. Here’s a picture of my […]

Last blog, I mentioned Armor For Sleep, one of my favourite bands, breaking up. But, I was looking out on Ben Jorgensen’s MySpace (Ben Jorgensen is the lead singer of AFS).

And he has a new project! 😧 So I went to check out his new group, God Loves A Challenge. They are on MySpace and I listened to their music. I have to admit, their music is very different from AFS. It’s not so […]

I was disappointed to hear from looking at their website, that Armor For Sleep, one of my favourite bands, broke up. I haven’t been a fan of them for very long – maybe only three years, but the fact that I might never see them in concert, and never meet the lead singer, Ben Jorgensen – one of my idols who are still alive – upsets me a little.

It’s just one less […]

The weather here has been ridiculous and I feel like I’m melting. 😓

I went to work today, but annoyingly enough, the air conditioner was not working. They seem to have always had that problem on the top floor of the building.

It wasn’t that bad in the morning, but by noon, the heat was terrible. My boss said I could go home if I wanted, because it wasn’t really appropriate to work […]

The past 24 hours have really done my head in. It’s like I’ve been showered with bad luck. 😐

Yesterday my blog comments failed to load, following the activation of the External Links plugin. I didn’t realise that this was the problem at first. All I was doing was replying to comment on my site, and everything came up blank. Nothing more than the <head> section on my site was loading. I had a […]

This might be the one and only book review I will write and publish on this site. I absolutely adore reading. I have read a lot of books, and I love recommending books to people.

However, when I picked up the newly released (October 2009) book, And Another Thing… by Eoin Colfer, I felt the strangest urge to write a review on it.

Eoin Colfer is most famously known for his Artemis Fowl series which […]

Sometimes when I’m walking around on my way to university, someone asks me for directions. Which is fine, so long as I’m not in a hurry. Which I’m usually not, because these people are considerate enough not to bother people who are running with a clunky briefcase and in the middle of a phone call.

Most of these people are tourists. Because my university is in the city, there are a few landmarks around and […]

Yesterday was To Write Love On Her Arms Day. Here’s my pictures:

TWLOHA

I wanted to show one with my face so I took this one with my webcam (and wrote LOVE again):

When I was little, sticker earrings were all the rage. I collected stickers in a sticker album, but I never actually used the stickers for something other than display. They just stayed there […]
