Random things

Since I have more time on my hands, I should really be posting more. But I guess no one wants to read the incredibly boring ramblings of my life!

Today is a Monday. Went to Carousel today. That's about it.

I really should try to do something these holidays. I mean, soon I will never get three months off ever again! So, I should enjoy lazing around more. That's my excuse for lazing around.

I should really post a picture up here, since Amy showed me how to, but I really can't be bothered. How lazy is that?

Do you guys notice that my posts are always ramblings about really random things? I should really get out more.

Burke's Backyard has been axed after 17 years. That's really sad. Not that I watched it, but hey, Don Burke is cool. Now we will never hear the song, "Give me a home among the gum trees, with lots of plum trees..." And you guys should go to the link above. It's an article from The Australian which sums it up pretty nicely.

Wow, how random is this post?

Miss me?

Haven't been posting much lately, extremely sorry -- I know that the small number of you guys who actually read my blog are devestated by my lack of posting, right? Well, humour me okay?

Watched about nine hours straight of Gilmore Girls today. Eyes have atrophied. But it was fun. (",)

I have started watching a new Hong Kong serial (i.e. TVB show). It's called Sunshine Heartbeat (I think). There are a lot of characters in it, can't keep track! And I have to admit, a lot of them look the same to me. I thought that two guys in the show were the same guy! Am I really that Aussie?

Hey, and who likes the pink? I think it looks funky. :D

Just a few things to say...

Yay! Exams are finally over! Surprisingly, I don't feel as relieved as I normally do. Anyway, it's the start of the holidays... I should make up a list of what I have to do. Well, there's that Autism training thing, and the "Fredathalon", my cousin's wedding, that Kidz Club thing that Dorcas asked me to do (thanks again!)... So hopefully this summer will be good.

Had a farewell party for Esther last night. Really going to miss you! So now that makes Joe the last person standing (i.e. the last of the original Crawleys).

And thanks for the book guys! Though it was weird celebrating my birthday about a month before the actually date! And Shan Shan this doesn't mean that I'm 20! I'm still a teenager (for a month or so).

Exam tips

Just taking a break from studying. Yes, you guys didn't read wrongly, I am actually studying. Abnormal is actually quite interesting, so that's great.

Anyone here reads The West Magazine? Comes free with the Saturday newspaper. Anyway, each week, Danny Katz writes something amusing. This week was no exception, but it also had some "relevent" stuff to do with taking psychology exams:

"If you get stuck on a question in the psychology paper, here's something you can do. Just lean across to the student sitting nearest to you and whisper to them, 'Hey... don't tell me the answer to question 14... whatever you do DON'T tell me the answer to question 14... I do NOT want to know the answer to question 14...' and eventually they'll probably tell you the answer. Although, if they DO tell you the answer, maybe they're not the psychology genius you want to be getting answers from.

Another thing you can do if you get stuck in the exam is search for the answers in your repressed subconscious. The way you do this is, tell your id to peek over the shoulder of your ego and copy the answers without your ego knowing. But don't let your superego catch you cheating because then you'll have an internal conflict and by the end of the exam you'll be riddled with chronic guilt, severe self-hatred, and a touch of impotence."

Hey, hope that helps with your exams! Just kidding. :OP

Went out with some friends whom I haven't seen for ages on Saturday. And Christine told me that she reads my blog all the time. So, hey Chrissy! And Joanne, I am NOT going to tell you who my secret santa person is. :D

Well, back to study, I guess. Two more days until I become a happy person.

Saturday, November 13, 2004

It's Saturday today. Only 3 days to revise for Abnormal. I'm going to die.

Had to work today. Yes, I can see the shocked look on all your faces. But my brother has to study as well, so he had a half day of working, while I had the other half. Stocked lots of food which I will never eat in my life. Vegetarian Curry Mutton? Sounds tasty. I think Amy would like it if she was in her vegetarian phases.

Haven't prepared for Children's Church yet. And I'm going out tonight. So it seems that I will either have a late night tonight, or an early one tomorrow. And there is more to prepare than people think -- it's not just the story! There's the memory verse, the worksheets related to the story, worship songs... I used to hate to lead the worship in Children's Church. But now I think that I've gotten used to it so that I don't feel stupid anymore. But I still get nervous when telling the story. The kids intimidate me.

I think that I will be forced to study on Sunday, because there is just so much to learn. I don't usuallly study on Sunday, because I feel that you should start of the week by not doing anything. Which is why I hated having assignments due on Monday at 9am. But it's all good. Only 4 more days and then I can do whatever I want. And what do I want to do? Nothing.

Hubba Bubba

What has happened to those Original Hubba Bubba Bubblegum packs? I can't find them anywhere. I see the grape and the strawberry ones everywhere, along with other extremely weird flavours like cola. Who eats cola bubblegum? Original is heaps cooler.

Only one exam to go! One more week to go! How exciting! Congrats to all the people who've finished. You can be sure that I am extremely jealous.

Song lyrics

There are a few songs lyrics that I really relate to. Here are some of them:

"Motivate me, I want to get myself out of this bed" -- Good Charlotte 'The Motivation Proclamation'
This song pretty much sums up my whole life.

"After the clouds there'll be the rain. After the sun there'll be the moon, it doesn't matter... 'cause it'll be in my own time" -- Delta Goodrem 'In My Own Time'
This song reinds me of that Ecclesiastes chapter. We will all have our own seasons!

"I'm a young heart living in a world filled with love, so when teardrops fall from me like rain from above, I can brush my troubles away, know that deep down inside, I've got sunshine in my life" -- Craig David 'World Filled With Love'
Well, I am young, right? Heheh.

And lastly..
"You can push me out the window, I'll just get back up... you can run over me with your 18 wheeler but you can't keep me down" -- P!nk '18 Wheeler'
Ha! Yeah, I'm a strong girl!!

One and a half weeks until I am done. Doesn't seem like very long, but feels like forever.

Hey, I got the hit counter thing on my blog now! From Hidi's blog... and the hugs counter is from Dorcas' blog. Cool.

The children's church thing went fine. So thanks for all the advice.

Next Sunday, the bible story is the Plague of the Firstborn. So, anymore ideas? Hehe, thanks in advance.

And no more Kopiko lollies for me. I know. ("_")

Yes yes, another short post. Well, I'm sure that if it were longer, you would be bored by now. Because my life is boring. Thank God for that!

Friday, November 05, 2004


Why am I posting every day, especially when I know I have an exam tomorrow? If you look up procrastinate in the dictionary, there will be a picture of me there.

I think that I am getting addicted to those "Kopiko" lollies. You know, those coffee lollies that you can purchase at any good Asian store (try Chan Brothers in Myaree or Willetton.. just kidding guys!)

I have been eating them instead of drinking coffee (as I don't like the taste of coffee). Kopiko lollies disguise most of the horrible coffee taste, and have 4.9% coffee extract, so hopefully they will help me stay awake to study. Well, it doesn't matter anyway, 'cos caffeine is just a placebo effect (according to Jessie anyway).

I know that this post isn't that long, so Amy will be mad. Just kidding.

And thanks for the hugs. I have finally gotten over the 1000 hugs mark. Thanks heaps!

On Saturday and Sunday it's Telethon.

When I was a kid, I remember Telethon being on TV for like a week. I asked one of my friends but she said that Telethon has never been on for a week before. I guess that when you're a kid, time seems much longer.

But when you reach a certain age, a week seems like nothing. Ahh! I'm getting old.

Melbourne Cup

Today is Melbourne Cup day. I heard that in Melbourne, it's a public holiday. Only in Australia would there be a public holiday for a horse race.

I love this country.

Starting study break this week. 5 days (including today) till my first exam. If I study 10 hours a day, for 5 days, thats 50 hours of developmental psychology. That sounds incredibly sad. And unlikely.

Helped in children's church yesterday. The kids are so funny. Aaron kept on calling me 'Fatty', and insisted that I call him 'Dumppy'. Yes, that's with two "p's". Ahhh, you can tell that he's going to get the girls when he's older...

Hey, does anyone have any ideas to teaching 3-6 year olds the many plagues of Egypt? You know, the story of Moses rescuing the Israelites from Egypt, and God sending the plagues - i.e. locusts, turning the river into blood, darkness...etc

What is an interesting way to present this?
