Uni assignments are the BEST… o.o

Now there are usually two reasons why I don’t blog; One, I’m lazy; Two, I usually blog at the end of the night, so if I sleep late then I usually don’t blog :-P.

Recently it’s been the latter, mainly cause I have uni at 9am =O.
So a quick update on all things I’ve been up to and things I’ve learned.

– Started shooting .22’s ^^.
– Mardi Gras parade ;D, I took a sign home ‘Travel Together’.
– Ate at a Japanese buffet with Yasaswi, Ed and Amy, it was good, not the best but that’s expected for all you can eat =]P. I forgot the name of the place though.
– Watched ‘The Adjustment Bureau’, it reminded me of ‘Dark City’, so it was pretty good most of the time when I was paying attention, which wasn’t the movie’s fault, I was distracting myself/being distracted =]P.
– And had an awesome night out in the city which consisted of lots of meat, teapots, getting kicked out XD, pies, getting soaked, buses and taxis and a sleepover.

1. Don’t rub a mosquito bite, it’ll only make it worse cause you’ll rub the skin off and it’ll look like a burn.
2. Always be prepared, you never know when you might need certain things.
3. Alcohol doesn’t necessarily make someone more honest.
4. Dating is pretty expensive XD.
5. Games and bets make everything more fun ;).
6. Couch cushions are pretty comfy.
7. Sleeping late makes you tired, one I still haven’t seemed to have learnt yet XD.
8. Getting wet is pretty fun, but you get cold afterwards.
9. Not telling someone the complete truth makes things easier for everyone in a way… but… it might delay things.
10. Building on that previous point… You can’t fix everything.

I have three due in the same week on consecutive days in week 6; it’s currently week 4 now and I also have two parties before the weekend before they’re due, so I definitely need to finish.
And the week after I have an assignment due whilst I’m in china, for a subject that has a 25% failure rate, so I have to start that pretty soon.
Also, have continue writing those notes I’ve already neglected.

Also this is pretty funny, a combination of natural shading/light, angles and a rifle pressed into your arm can make it look like you havee muscles XD.



Here’s to keeping up; socially, academically, physically, romantically and mentally,

Bowling Pies

HEHEHEHE, remember how I made the pie the other day?
There was much more spillage than I first thought.
So when I preheated the oven the next day to bake my adjusted apple pie for Ed’s Fully Sick Picnic, the spillage started to cook/burn and thick smoke came out of the oven.

XD my dad had to disable the smoke alarm so it wouldn’t go off and put a fan in front of the oven cause there was that much smoke.
In the end I took my uncooked pie to Ed’s and we baked it there.
Thank goodness Ed’s mum put the tray back in the oven, cause there was was a bit of spillage this time too.
Lesson Learnt: A tray MUST be placed under any fruit filled pies etc.

Oh and the pie was awesome =], but I forgot to take pictures =(.
I fixed the pastery problem and reduced the sugar and cinnamon, the first pie was too sweet.
The only thing I forgot was to sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top =O.
I’ll get it perfect on my third go =]P.

My arm hurts from bowling, totally building muscles XD.
Also, “Ong Bak” is insane, we watched it after bowling and the final scene was just like WHAT THE HELL?!!!! XD.
So crazy.

I think I’ll always be a magnet for drama.
Whether it be my own or others’,
and you know what,
I’m just going to accept it.

Things happen that you can’t control and
there are peoples’ problems you can’t assist in.
The most you can do is ride it out, and help/pick up all the pieces when it all falls apart.

I’m happy with where I am,
and I’m fine with whatever will/won’t happen,
as long as everybody’s happy =].
It took a week of flighty/antsy behaviour for me to eventually calm myself down.
Thank you to all the people that helped,
haha if you didn’t, I probably would’ve buried myself in crazy thoughts.

Lesson learnt,
don’t overthink and freak out,
whatever happens, happens and
sometimes the best thing to do is nothing =].
