Spotted this randomly on youtube's homepage


The song isn't really my type, but I like the lyrics, creativity of the video and the singer's voice of course ^^ And she kind of reminds me of Brenda Song, but this singer has something different that makes her not as identical..

Last Days in Sydney; +Updates!

So as you all know, I'm leaving on Sunday to spend my winter holiday in Indonesia. I'm really excited to become all touristy again and kinda go impulse shopping (this holiday's spending theme is CLOTHES!) as well as soak in my hometown's culture - Ayam Goreng 99 is as close as Indonesians can get to the real food back at home :) But at the same time, I have this sinking feeling in my heart because I won't be there for Connie's birthday, her birthday party and the SMASH anime convention :( not to mention I won't be studying for the exams that I have as soon as school starts the day after I come back! T__T

Speaking of the anime convention, which I mentioned about cosplaying for, a couple of months back, I guess I won't be experiencing my first 'cosplay' attempt. Oh well, maybe next year. But to prepare for it, I'm planning to get my costume made in Indonesia! Since it's much more cheaper. I have decided to go with Clannad's summer uniform :)






























Anyway, some updates on what's happened lately.. Umm I've been spending this whole week at Business Services work placement @ Richardson and Wrench, Maroubra. The staff are so friendly (well most of them anyway), that I reckon I'll actually miss them when I end tomorrow D: I really like my supervisors, Rod and Lester - they're the typical office guys that.. well I dunno how else to say it.. have a 'cool' vibe? They chuck jokes, drive really cool cars, turn the music up loud and drive like crazy.. haha. I really like the receptionist/accountant, Sherly and the sales consultant, Megan too. They're nice to talk to and hang around :) Then, theres this guy Bill.. thats really strange. He only looks at Angela, not me ==" Whenever he's talking to the both of us, I seem interested but he never makes eye contact with me. It's like I'm not even there.. And one time I decided to be friendly and say 'Good morning!' and he looks at Angela like she said it! well, whatever.. he kinda intimidates me anyway -.-" Work placement is really a bludge, we spend so much time doing nothing, and we're allowed to go on facebook and all that, but we dont go on very often, in case it leaves a bad impression on the workers. We do go on property inspections though, which is really fun :) And thats about it for that..

Today I went shopping and bought myself a couple of things - firstly, FINALLY got myself a good ipod case and screen protector that was 60% off each. From $30 to $10 for the case. ^^ Although its MUCH too late, I've only had my ipod for around 2 months and the back has so much scratches that are enough to make it seem like I've had it for 1 year+ -__-" Most importantly.. FINAL FANTASY XIII IS NOW IN MY HANDS!! seriously, about time xD I've only ever owned Final Fantasy VII, which has super old graphics and runs on PS1, but is what caused to love the whole idea of FF, because the storyline was heaps good. now all i need is a PS3 to be able to start gaming, which my friend is willing to lend to me tomorrow. So I'm all set ;) And lastly, also bought pretty good flats (about time too) for $15. My first pair of own flats actually. I can only fit the ones with a flexible sole, because the width of my feet is thin and doesn't suit the flats that have a sturdy sole. Anyway I'll be using those a lot now, no need for my mum's anymore :)

And.. thats it. Tomorrow after my last day of work placement, I'm collecting my new glasses and contacts. I feel so relieved I don't have to wear my old frames anymore xD Yes.. I might take a picture when I get them ^^

If any of you want anything from Indo, ask away :D

After 2.5 years

I decided to replace my glasses and thought, well I only wear them at home anyway, so might as well make it whatever :L So I ended up replacing them with frames extremely similar to 3D glasses :D

The beggar

Today I went out into the city until 6:30pm-ish and waited to catch the bus home. Plugged my earphones in and then this woman comes up with a stroller and starts talking to me. I could tell she was a beggar I moved out of her way because I thought she was going to shout at me or something. But instead she starts talking to me so I quickly remove my earphones, missing out on half her talking but she goes "...thankyou (probably for taking out my earphones? lol). i have a child here *points to some figure hidden under a blanket* I was wondering if you could donate.." etc etc I didn't even bother to listen, just gave her $2 because I was scared she would argue with me or something. I did notice that the blanket wasn't moving at all though, and it seemed awfully flat. I was like in my head 'I'm so being conned, there aint no baby under there...' lol but I gave it anyway. She thanks me and goes off. About 10 minutes later I see her again, coming in the opposite direction and asking other people for money.. And in place of the 'baby' in the trolley, theres.. a DOG! Dammit, double conned LOL. oh well, interesting story.

Science and Faith

Tried to break love to a science
In an act of pure defiance
I broke her heart
As I pulled apart her theories
As I watched her growing weary
I pulled her apart
Having heavy conversations
About the furtherest constellations of our souls
And we're just trying to find some meaning
In the things that we believe in
But we got some ways to go
Of all the things that she's ever said
She goes and says something that just knocks me dead

You won't find faith or hope down a telescope
You won't find heart and soul in the stars
You break everything down to chemicals
But you can't explain a love like ours

It's the way we feel, yeah this is real

I tried pushing evolution
As the obvious conclusion of the start
But it was for my own amusement
Saying love was an illusion of a hopeless heart

Tuition

I want to go for tutoring but I honestly think it will be a waste of my parent's money because I'm likely not to do the set homework, and the students there will be so much smarter than me, that when it comes to checking over answers to homework, the teacher will be like 'any questions?' and I'd be scared to raise my hand because no one needs extreme explanation like I do -__- It's happened already at North Shore, it can happen twice :(

Will I get hurt?

I was thinking of adding him as a friend again, so I did. But then 5 minutes later, I thought of how risky it would be if he said something to hurt me again. I mean, I'm really confident I've fully recovered and moved on, but who knows? I just can't risk it. So I cancelled it. And then he adds me half an hour later.. It's probably safer not to accept aye?

Ranking

(I posted rankings up earlier but decided to edit it and remove it because I placed top 10 in 3 subjects.. and if I drop ranking in the semester 2 report, my self esteem would plummet..)

Overall SOR is a major letdown.. And if I want to get a bachelor in design in university (which I really plan to do when I graduate) I really shouldn't be ranking in 6th place :( You'd think I'd be proud of IPT, and I am but the comment my teacher made during the interview was, 'this ranking does not truly reflect Emily's true performance because it was based on a group assignment. However this upcoming due assignment is individual and will better reflect her true ranking' Damn.. the pressure D:

Day #20;

Your definition of different types of love

I thought I already answered this :(
Well this concludes my 20 day challenge on love / relationships ^^

Day #19;

A note to a friend you love the most


Dear friend,

I hope you're okay :(
I don't really know what happened, but be strong!
Sorry I can't be there to comfort or talk to you..

Sincerely,
emilyjane
