A Boring Winter Solstice

It's Winter Solstice tomorrow. I don't think that i'll be in any mood to celebrate it. There's always the glutinous balls to make tomorrow, and i hate that it stick to my fingers and it's awfully hard to get them out later if it sticks to your nails.

The whole day has been a boring one. Most of my friends are away or getting ready for next year's public exams by attending tuition. I hate it; but it's something that i have to suffer with, to get the grades for the scholarship. It's not like my parents can't afford the tuition fees and my expenses when (and if) i manage to get myself overseas. I've been considering the Ivy League, like Dartmouth and Cornell...Harvard and Yale is a lil too impossible. First, i don't know if i can cope with it; and second, i don't think i'll fare that well too far away. I mean, one of my aunt's migrating there in a few months and i won't be entering colleges for another year or so. Mom said that i could go over to Australia; and since she has a few relatives living there, and another aunt is going to settle down there, i'll still be able to reduce on the homesickness.

Sigh...I'll worry about that later, like in 9-10 more months. I'll go college hunting when SPM is over.

I have no idea what's wrong with me. A poem came popping into my head when mom and i were baking the lemon mousse cake together. It was in Chinese! Man, and i thought that after last year all the Chinese lessons would go down the drain. Well, if it were to go down the drain, dad would have had my head for it. I doubt it'll ever disappear entirely, after 6 years being in a Chinese school and another 3 years of mandatory classes.

There isn't much going on. Life's still as dull as ever. School's starting in a few weeks and i still have some unfinished projects leftover from last year. Maybe i'll squeeze in some time to go finish it, if something fun doesn't come distracting me.

Finally found one of those fingerless gloves today and my bought it; along with a smoothie machine and some groceries.
I couldn't play Sims 2 because i had to mount it to hell-knows-where and to activate hell-knows-what thingy. Went back to the games store but the fellow wasn't much help. I guess he's the low blood pressure type. Changed it to the deluxe version and one of those fashion designer games that sis always wants. I can unlock my com when she wants to try it out.

Another one of those gloomy days again. The sky looks like it's gonna cry again. The installation is almost complete. Going to check it out and see whether it works or i'll go back to the games store and bust that guy's ass.

Staring at the same four walls

It's been raining for two days now. I don't know what to do.
Redecoration of my room is not going to start until dad starts the renovations. He says that my bathroom has to be pushed out so that when the water tanks have any leaks (touch wood), the walls won't start peeling like now. The walls of the room is painted pink blush, or cherry blossom. I don't like it but i can't complain.
If the bathroom is pushed out, my room's gonna be really spacious; with the walls so bare, i can't bare it. I used to buy the posters at those mailing stores; where the send you a catalog and you mail back the list of items you want to buy with either a check or the postal money. They had wonderful posters throughout the year but i was too busy to find time to sit down and decide which to buy. I'm very free now, but they ran out of posters. Guess i'll have to wait till the next issue to see whether they have some nice ones.

The rain's gotten me a bit melancholic. It reminds me of Grandma. I miss her. I told her the wait for me but she didn't. She's left me alone with a unfulfilled promise. But she's in a happy place now, i think. She's no longer suffering, so i'll be happy for her.

The trip's next Friday, we'll be leaving in the morning. I hope that it'll be an enjoyable one.

I can't figure how to make the music player invisible, but i don't care now. At least i have something in my music section. This is one part of the blog that i won't change; the selection of the music. Most of them are only instrumentals; no lyrics except for Boston and Shine. I don't know if they suit the image of the blog; but i just don't care.

I'll try to figure out it soon, unless i can get one of bro's friends to teach me. It's no harm learning something new right?

Till I'm bored

I think that i'll stick to this template for now. I'll change it again if there's another one that catches my attention. I'm still waiting for the upload of my songs to finish; then only can i try to alter the player so that it's invisible. Html is so fun!

Just finished helping bro change his template. He was begging on his knees; i should have recorded it, if only i could. He was screaming and shouting at me in the afternoon (just because i didn't close the door to his room; i only asked him to say please, then i'll be happy to do it). I can't say it's done well. He wanted Bleach for his template. It didn't give me much of a choice. The links and other edits aren't quite done yet. I can't say it's much of a good work but it's a nice try for a beginner. His blog is at Reign Over The Frozen Heavens. Most people never attempt to change anything and just copy and paste the ready-made templates. I've given much time onto this one.

We redecorated the Christmas tree again today. Apparently some of the lights weren't blinking. That's cause some of them were broken and cracked. I think that the tree was really nice yesterday but mom made it better today. I should post a picture; but the camera is with mom. Maybe i can bug her to snap one pic of the tree.

House is starting in a few minutes. I'll leave the com on till it finishes the uploading.

This is so cool! I finally got it up and running.
Thanks to Yain for helping me; and i didn't even need WordPress at all!
I think i'll change the template again if i have the time. It's 1.30 in the morning and i need some sleep. I'll update it tomorrow, or rather..today.
Whatever, i need sleep.

New haircut

I've gone to cut my hair; and i like the haircut :).
I don't think i'll post a picture of it here. Maybe i'll post one when i'm off for the family trip, which is in 2 weeks.

Now..about the html, I've not figured it out yet; but i will..soon. I've left an offline message to Yain for help; if she ever gets out of Maple and looks at the messager.
Dad just gave me the subsidies for my book expenditure so now i'm not broke and still can get more books :D

I hope that the day could get better.

I give up.

Arghh. I give. I can't figure it out and it's almost 3 in the morning. I'm almost falling asleep on my desk.

Forget it, i'm going to ask Yain how she did it tomorrow; given that she's not in Maple the whole day. I've got half of the html figured out. I just don't know how to edit it so that the freaking thing can save the damn template.

I'm going to bed. Goodnite

First Blog, not!

This isn't my first blog. My first attempt was a few months ago; back when i didn't know the existence of WordPress. I'm still trying to figure out how to use it; hopefully i will. I've got plenty of time. At least this will keep me busy for the next few weeks.

I'll still post at Facebook, though the posts there won't be as personal as this one. The rants there will be more subtle than those here; if i don't get frustrated with figuring how to use the WordPress to change the template. The templates here are so boring. Of course, the posts here will deal more to my every existence and daily turmoils. I doubt anyone would be interested in this.

I'll be signing off to study about installing WordPress. See you then.
