The Day..
Monday. 11.22.04 8:52 am
mood: hot!

Hello monday! Why r u so hot? 37 degrees down here in Perth, Australia and my exam is at 5.30pm tonight. I'm glad it is at night so then my butt will not stick to the seat and I will not have added perspiration!! >_< It's gonna be paper no.1!!! Cuz since paper no.1 was deferred last week. This will become my first exam. Hmmm...and this one is giving me a head ache! The lecturer gave us the exam paper beforehand so we can research our answers and compile our answer. But it only makes it worse cuz my friends and I discovered there is a whole range of answers.

My lecturer is a british, oldish man who loves a good arguement! :/ My fellow study friends and I who are asian really despise and avoid arguement and criticism...isn't it true we are students of theory? To study and then to agree with what is in the book? This unit requires we challenge the current system and current thought in HR processes...but BAHHHH...I'm too lazy...hehehe! If I have the strength I will argue, but I'm the type of person who hates conflict. So how?

Last night my family and I went up to King's Park. It was beautiful as always. ^___^ Windy and cooling...after a hot day! We took KFC up there and sat to chit chat. It was nice...cuz it is traditional that we come up here every Summer, during the night.

But on the weekend I was mainly at uni! Yes! How scary is that? I'm like one of those nerds who can't get away from uni! NOT! hAHAHAHA! But on sat, I met up with Malini to go for 3 hrs on the paper, then sunday, at 8am!!! (Yes! I woke up at 7.30am on a sunday!) to study some more. Can't wait till the HELL is over... Come wednesday!! I'm a free spirit! :p

My friend Jason is in love and I'm so HAPPY for him!!! He called me up on sun morning and we chatted for an hour! Cuz his mum confronted him last night asked him "why do u hate women so much?" "Do you like boys?" "Do you have a bf?" and she told him she was ok about it, but doesn't know about his father. I'm happy for him that his mother is supportive and not critical. Plus he is in love with a worthy guy...hopefully. I'm just so overprotective of him. :) hehehe! I believe it is tougher for gay people to find the right partner...only becuz a majority of them are just looking for a fling and not a r'ship.

I might do some last minute study just for now...and give up half way cuz of the heat! hehehe! I hope u are all enjoying ur holidays!! WITHOUT ME!!!! booohooo!! Cuz I know most of u guys are done. Lucky buggersss... hahaha! See ya soon! :X

Look up!
Friday. 11.19.04 5.24 pm
mood: too many thoughts...

Have you ever noticed that people don't look up very often? I was walking through Perth city today and catching the bus and people just don't seem to see...people. I know it is rude to stare, but this is not staring..this is merely observing the world that surrounds you, be it up, down and all around. Everyone should try it. Why should staring be offensive? I think the eyes are beautiful and even if they are the windows to the soul...what do you really have to hide?

It's pretty difficult to ignore the fast moving world that is happening. But people do, they have a thought in their head when they are walking down the street, an agenda to stick to, and never really stop to enjoy the beautiful weather or other fellow beings. It's so nice to just observe people when they smile silently to themselves, a laugh between 2 friends at a cafe conversations, a wave of goodbye and a subtle joke. The simplicity moves me somehow...and the thought that the person standing alone at the crossing lights has a life and story of their own.

I went into town today to see my mum and pick her up from work. Lucky I didn't have work. But I sat in her office, which resembles a fish bowl because I can see everyone outside and everyone can see in. But I was sitting at such an angle that no one could detect me. But I could still see outside, more like view the downstairs area. I asked my mum "Do you feel that people are staring at you when you walk in the street?". She says no and she doesn't care cuz she walks by looking straight forward.

I guess looking straight forward is a safety mechanism of the humen body, to be aware of any danger. But has anyone wanted to just look the other way? Imagine if you were walking by looking right ways all the time...I wonder how that would work...your perception would definitely change and maybe you will see the world in a different way. hmmm...probably trip over a couple of times but yeh...an experiment worth trying out. :) (I will not be held liable for anything said here lol!)

It's so interesting to see how ppl interact with one another or when they are alone. I'm not being the psychologist here just a normal observer... but then again, the psychologist would stand in the middle of the CBD and look up just to the get others to mimic. Hehehe. Distract them for a while... Humanity is pretty amazing and humourous I think!

Caught that DAMN bug!
Thursday. 11.18.04 8.26 am
mood: sick

I'm feeling so gross, sickly gross. My head is spinning and I feel as if I wanna collapse. Today is my exam too... and with the way I am it seems very unlikely I will be sitting it. I have to call my unit co-ordinator to defer my paper, but I wish I didn't have to cuz I just wanna get it over and done with.

Yesterday was bad, I woke up heavy headed and found it difficult to eat my breakfast. I was then breaking out the cold sweats and shakes, which freaked me out! I couldn't study at all! But was in bed the whole day. I threw up a couple of times, and I haven't done so in years! I didn't eat anything for the whole day and now my muscles are sore for being in bed too long. I hate feeling this way! I caught the virus from my mum, dad or older bro. I hate being sick!!!

I have never deferred an exam before... I feel kinda bad for doing it, cuz my classmates are all taking it today. I am always the student who attends the classes and never misses an assessment. But gawd I feel like shit! So I have no choice but to stay at home. And will have to go and see the doc later.

My cousins are leaving today, it'll be sad but then again, I can better study without them here. I got a letter from Michelle yesterday, so nice of her to write, snail mail is still the way to go. :) I dunno there's something about pen to paper that makes it so treasured...it's like the person is personally making an effort to write, u can see their handwriting and even the lil mistakes. It's just more heartfelt i think. :)

I can't be on this computer for too long, getting dizzy again *woooo* But hope u all have a great week! Weekend is nearly here! :) Take care!

My Kohkoh the dragonhead
Tuesday. 11.16.04 12:48 pm

This is a picture taken at the photo store after the family had taken the portrait. Me and my older bro. Look at his hair, he's gone blonde again! He kinda reminds me of a dragon for some reason, or an anime character. hehehe. You can also see my hair, the blonde bits infront, cuz all the purple washed out.
