Archives for Month: January 2012

Last week, it rained to the point where I had water fill up my favourite shoes. I suppose they’re not my favourite shoes – I’m not a hundred percent sure they are my favourite. But these shoes are flat (not completely flat, but with a small, tolerable heel), a bit glossy, with a ribbed pattern, and they’re black, and are cute, fashionable, and formal. You can dress them up or down and they’re just so […]

This morning I woke up with a sore throat. It hurt like hell to talk. Okay, let’s just say I had reached the point of untalkableness. Making any vocal noise was rather painful and swallowing the fluids that my mouth naturally produced also became rather unpleasant because it felt like someone was rubbing a cheese grater against my pharynx.

I’ve had laryngitis and pharyngitis before and […]

I miss being a child. I remember when 10:00pm was “late”, but at the age of ten my best friend called my home phone at that time and I was already in bed. I remember coming home from school and as soon as I had my tea (which was really just fruit), I had to shower and get changed and ready for ballet or piano; as soon as I got home I ate dinner and […]

I quit my first job. Ooaohohooh. So. I haven’t exactly quit, but I told my boss that I can’t work after the 16th February.

I don’t remember exactly when I started this job at the education centre, but I remember that in early 2008, shortly after James and I began dating, I was happy to receive this job at all. James told me it was going to suck and the pay was going to […]

The lowdown: He can’t really say hello yet, but you can say hello to him. You don’t get to see him yet, but you get to hear all about him.

Today, James picked me up at my house early in the morning and we went to a mall about fifteen minutes from my house. After we got lost and found ourselves in a homeware mega mall full of furniture stores (no, we’re not ready to […]

I get too attached to it. Correction: got. What with this SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) issue getting heated up, yakking on to my brother about it…

I see many people are involved. Many people blocked out their websites for the 18th day of January. People tweeted about it everywhere. People posted about it on their blogs. People posted about it on forums. People expressed their opinion virtually everywhere – on the internet. I […]

Ryan used to tell me, when we parted ways, that he needed to “do the rounds”. Yes, I get that. But I just preferred to say “running errands”, even though the definition of errands is doing tasks on someone else’s behalf. Either way, in the context of this blog post, let’s think of errands as mini-missions, which can be for yourself or for someone else.

Yesterday I had a mini-mission: shopping.

Right, that […]

The “add to cart” button will be the death of me, I swear. A couple of days ago I decided to look on eBay for… something. I don’t remember what it was exactly – because when you go online shopping, one thing always leads to another – but I just thought about something I needed (read: needed, not wanted) and thought, “Let’s see if it’s on eBay.”

Alas, it was, for a much cheaper price […]

Another two days of work has come and gone. I am beginning to feel the heaviness of having what is almost a full-time job, and admittedly, I am beginning to dread what it’ll be like when classes start for me this semester. I haven’t been able to choose my classes yet, which is rather irritating because I want to quit my job at the education centre and just have my one newest job. It is […]

My mum recently got a new phone which is exactly the same as mine – a Samsung Galaxy Ace. Well, mine is on the Froyo build and hers is on Gingerbread, which is a newer Android version. I actually noticed the difference in the user interface as soon as I checked out her phone, but I didn’t really give it much thought. Well, duh, the OS versions are different… 🙁

Anyway, that aside, teaching my […]
