blast from the past

a friend shared this on fb today. oh man... this series was my bro and my fav reads at that time!! I like how every chapter ended with a cliffhanger. and they had a game series where readers had to choose option 1 or 2, whether either the main character sits the rollercoaster or he chooses to go to the theme park and etc. i always ended up reading both choices to see which was the best heh. I tried reading Sweet Valley/Sweet Valley High but I couldn't understand the drama. But i did read a sweet valley book where the twins were running from a stalker. that was ok. 

Which reminds me of my other fav: mary-kate and ashley books!! In primary school my friends and I were cray over this series man. Yea I know their book covers look so.... 90s hahaha. I can't believe I liked reading them. 

Oh man. the 90s sure look cheesy, now that I look back at all the books and fashion etc. But these were the real deal back then!! Sooo different compared to what students have nowadays. so very different. and then there's batu seremban, masak2, rubber/eraser fights, stapling staplers at the sides of erasers, conteng-ing erasers, tick-tack-toe, skipping ropes made out of rubberbands, pepsi-cola, having a journal where we get friends to write their testimonials/fav food, music, books blabla..... where did these go?!?! D:

facebook reminded me of today four years ago: (Pics taken from melmel's fb =P )

when i saw these pics, i felt so nostalgic. Gone were the days when we were wide-eyed, carefree students and the stuff (yeah, stuff lol!) we worried about were exams, assignments, room mates... Now, fast forward 4 years later, our responsibilities have doubled or tripled, our perceptions have changed and now we are all on different paths pursuing different goals. and we're in the face of difficulties and discouragements in wherever we are. 

sigh. life. time aint gona wait for us to grow up. even if we're not ready we gotta face whatever comes our way. Perhaps this is how we grow and mature. dang adulthood is so...confusing. there is no clear-cut, black and white solution to everything. 

i guess tata for now. waiting for an important email reply. I hope everything will be ok. D:

Saw a friend's fb status that read like this: 

found out that it's actually still quite hard for me to speak up in a room full of people who are so eager to share. after some time, i will come to a point where i realize i've lost the opportunity to share my thoughts (because others have shared similar points or i myself have lost my own train of thought), and as i wave goodbye to the moment, i stit back and observe. quietly. 

I can so relate to this. and sometimes people wonder why we don't have anything to say where they're so quick to assume we don't wana participate/share ideas. 

People need to be educated on introverts :p

fav quotes from JRR Tolkien:

-"Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens."

-"The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater."

-"I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve."

-"I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil."

-"Oft hope is born when all is forlorn."

-"It is not despair, for despair is only for those who see the end beyond all doubt. We do not."

-"It is useless to meet revenge with revenge; it will heal nothing."

-"Fair speech may hide a foul heart."

-"His grief he will not forget; but it will not darken his heart, it will teach him wisdom."

-"The wise speak only of what they know."

-"Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life."

-"if more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world."

"When it feels scary to jump, that is exactly when you jump. Otherwise, you end up staying in the same place your whole life." 

Shite why I terasa with this instagram quote. 

on a different note, exam today on research methodology was dang tricky. I made silly mistakes as usual, there goes my marks ughhhhhhhh. 2hour paper, 3 questions, do 2 only. i spent too much time deciding which question to choose pfft. in the end, i did the 2nd question in 35 minutes gahhh. shite. I hope my lecturer will be lenient. (actually he won't but hope is having faith in things not seen loll) one more paper to go and tata sem!

Although classes have ended, I still have unfinished essays and exams to do. T.T in the midst of that, my coursemate shared some pictures she took at Sekinchan. Can't believe the view! Calming.

I'm blown away. So beautiful

What time is it?!

What time is it??

Summertime! Not really, but more like school's out, let's scream and shout! No more classes weehee. Bittersweet moment for me right here. Cant believe classes have come and gone. And i have learnt so much. Thank you to Dr. D.Y. for teaching and pushing me to think beyond my limits, to reach for ideas I thought I didn't have access to. You have taught me to question things and to read between the lines. Most importantly I've learned to be critical and to have the passion in research (tough, but I'll try to keep it going).

btw this dog reminds me of me. I would think it's an introvert =) :
