This is the latest series that I am hooked on, Lie To Me
How to describe it? This is like House
, only that instead of finding out what's wrong with someone medically, Lightman (sp?) finds out if someone is lying. He's like House in terms of personality.. maybe a little more subtle but there are similarities between both of them. However, expect less disclosure on each characters' personal lives throughout the series, unlike House.
I learn things from watching series and movies and this, I think is one that I can learn a lot from. Not that I want to be a pro at identifying someone who is lying or anything but it'd be fun to actually see the surprise on someone's face when someone finds out that they're lying! Lol. I quite like to surprise people, I don't know why.. I like surprises but I don't like being told that there is a surprise waiting for me. The curiousity doesn't sit right with me.

I had a dream.. That I visited Michelle Branch's house and it was a mini library. The moment you enter her house, its like books everywhere! Of course I went and borrowed a year's supply from here, mostly titles that even I don't know about Pegasus and one about Elizabeth I. When I woke up, I wish that place existed cause I am deprived of good books nowadays.
I'm at the moment reading an E-book (yes, something I said I don't quite like doing). It is Steve Berry's The Charlemange Pursuit
. Man... I don't wanna let it go. I'm pretty sure I can finish it in 2 days despite my detestment of Ebooks. Which reminds me, he has a new book which wasn't downloadable when I was looking for it. Steve Berry books are awesome. I think that is why I am willing to read the Ebooks of his books.

Debussy - Clair de Lune
I don't feel like sleeping yet but I know that I should go to sleep soon. I thought I'd blog so that I can to to sleep much easier.
There is this video on youtube by bubzbeauty on what your acne tells you through where you get it? I am getting a lot on my chest area which is said to be due to stress. It is really, really good to know cause despite what people think, that going home (for those who goes elsewhere to study and don't live with your parents for most parts of the year) is very relaxing and stress free. Not for me. Not at all. Despite it being easier when it comes to food and not having to share a car and things being cheaper, I am not free of stress here. It is suffocating at some points because I don't get to decide if I'm following out, I just have to or I'd be "ungrateful". I think that is also why I get insomnia when I am at home. I can sense it when my mother wants to have some kind of talk with me. Every. Single. Time.
Quoting Katy Perry from her song Thinking of You
'comparisons are easily done, once you've had a taste of perfection'. That is why sometimes you can't just 'get over it'. Imagine, you have the perfect getaway somewhere and all you want to ever do is go and do that again. Until you find another place to replace it, you won't just stop talking about it right?
My best friend's ranting and I am in on it with her.

Do you mind insert a question
That is by far the hardest common question to answer and also being the person asking that question, getting one of the most confusing answers.
I don't know if it is the same for you but more often for questions like "Do you mind me taking this chair?" and the answer is "No" but it doesn't mean "no, I don't mind", it is "no, this chair is taken".
Or if you're asking someone a favour, "Do you mind helping me move the car", the answer would be "Of course! Sure, sure. Leave it to me!" So.... of course you mind moving my car for me so I shouldn't leave it to you?
Well, I can't really blame people as also I give these confusing answers. I think it would be impossible to accurately answer that question without creating any confusion at all because of the norms of society. We are always somehow accomodating.
So, tell me what are your experiences with the question. You don't mind, that is.

I wasn't planning on watching it at all and E didnt wanna go home so dragged me out for dinner. Which I thought was only dinner, so I wore shorts (and mind you today was one of my favourite days cause it has been raining for the whole day!). So then he wanted to go watch a late night movie and I didn't know that they have late nights on Sunday nights so yea, we decided to watch Inception
cause there was nothing else that is worth the money. So, we were there at about 8 and our ticket was at 11.45. We killed 2 and a half hours at Starbucks. Playing truth or dare, mostly truth cause I dont do dares in public. Considering that E is a chain smoker, and because the time was long, my hair now smells of ciggie smoke. Considering that it is now 3.30 in the morning, washing my hair has to wait till when I wake up tomorrow.
Anyway, the movie was worth wearing shorts on a cold day and killing time with a chain smoker for!! For someone like me who likes riddles, puzzles and codes, it is awesome. Though chances of getting mindfucked is high but hey, look at it this way, it is not your average boring action movie with predictable plots.
I think the caffein from my Americano has worn off so tata people!

DO you ever want something so badly but the moment you have it, you don't want it anymore? Or you've worked yourself so hard to get that one thing yet you get everything else but that?
I get that.. not all the time but only for things that I've chased with all that I have. Take this holiday for example, I've been chasing it for a good year 8 months and now that I am on holiday, there is a lack of happiness that accompany it. It doesn't feel like much has changed at all. I actually prefer to be going to classes and seeing my friends and have them make me laugh, telling me to chill and pulling pranks on other people. I work hard to get good grades but the harder I work the worse my results will be.
Now that I am on holiday, I am expected to go home soon. Yea, I don't quite want to go home where I have to be mindful of the things I do and the things I say. It's quite like the one place I don't want to be anymore. Yes, going home is wonderful yet infuriating cause I don't want to go home to have being compared to someone else just because they are better hypocrites than me. I don't want to go home to be told that my freedom is now even more constricted than ever.
I have to say independence does not mean freedom. You can have freedom but you may not be independent and vice-versa. For those who have obtained both freedom and independence, good for you because it means that you can draw your own paths and do things that you want. Although some of you will continue to blame others for your failure because you are too afraid to gamble anything at all, I will say that life is the ultimate gamble, each decision you make is a gamble and even if you're not a gambler as I am, it doesn't really matter because either way there there will be something different in your life.
I need a change in environment, something that is not where I am now and where I am going to be in a week or so's time but with the constricted freedom that I have, there is not really a place that I can go. Oh.. I can't wait to finish studying, get a job and be free. Although things have not been going according to plan but at least then I am abosolutely free to do what I want and go places that I want to go. I have been independent and I am sure that won't ever change.
In the spirit of not getting the things I want, I'm going to try to not be so serious cause it seems that things always, always are better when I just not take it seriously.
