What career path now..?

Today felt like one of those days where interior design just wasnt my 'thing'. I mean the whole theory part.. is of nothing that interests me. And the idea of having to search for 'projects' to do for people makes the career not seem stable if you know what I mean? I want a job with fixed pay, full-time or whatever.

Then there's biology. I loooooove biology. That is to say, I love studying it. A career in biology.. not so much ): Well.. I'm not too sure yet, definitely might not go for anything that will upset my weak stomach (surgeon, nurse etc.) so I'm thinking lab work and research is better.

And I.T.. I'd love to work at an Apple Store come to think of it :O But lately I just haven't been concentrating in IPT lessons because the content work is so boring. And If I can't be serious about it at the moment, what makes me think I'll change my ways in uni and gain an enthusiasm for it? :S

Yeah, I'm a bit of a lost sheep at the moment.

The Face Shop haul with Kirsty ^___^


I got myself an eye primer, cleansing wipes and my favourite, a Milk Plus body lotion, which smells really sweet like strawberry milk candy x3 For spending a bit over $30, I got my free members card too :D Plus there were baskets of little samples hehe.

AKFG = Childhood!

I remember how obsessed I was with Japanese culture - back in year 6 to 7 I used to get up at 5:30am everyday just to watch Japanese news on SBS hahahah
I frequently used my Japanese dictionary until it was worn out on the edges, and I still have it to this day hehe ^^
And the only songs I listened to were the ones from Asian Kung-Fu Generation (main band I listened to), Orange Range, Ayumi Hamasaki or Utada Hikaru (y) Good times..

Kony 2012

If there's one message, for those wanting to know why awareness through social networks will support this campaign, it can be summarised within these lines from the video:

"In order for Kony to be arrested this year (2012), the Ugandan military has to find him.
In order to find him, they need the technology and training to track him in the vast jungle.
That's where the American advisors come in. But in order for the American advisors to be there, the U.S. government has to deploy them. They've done that but if the government doesn't believe that people care about arresting Kony, the mission will be cancelled. In order for the people to care, they have to know. And they will only know if Kony's name is everywhere."

"It's obvious the Kony should be stopped, but the problem is around 99% of the world's population doesn't know who he is. If they knew, Kony would have been stopped long ago."

Sometimes I do try and imagine what it is like being that child slave who maybe in a few hours time has to carry the duty of Kony's dirty work by killing loved ones from their own hands, in front of their own eyes. And then I imagine the small sense of hope that that child has that maybe within that dark hour, the military will finally find and capture Kony, giving freedom to the children. And that 'hope' that those children have is what motivated me to want to support this campaign. The sooner he is found, the less lives that are lost. This does remind me of the classic saying, 'a stitch in time saves nine'.

It really does seem like the whole world already knows about him (because of all the news on Tumblr) but in reality, 10 000 + notes on an awareness posts is not the 'world'. So just one contribution to sharing the news is all it takes. And on 'Cover the Night' will be the most profound impact when the news can be spread most. This will (hopefully) be the day that this campaign's first goal is achieved.

I think all this campaign is asking is that we play our small part in raising awareness so that the government knows that their determination in stopping him as soon as possible is well supported by people around the world.

American Version?

Seeing the other version of baby lips on tumblr often, I actually feel like buying the collection now xD
Some of them come in slight colour tints and theres more flavours / packaging colours to choose from, but what I really have my eye on is the peach flavoured one *o*
