hi! i'm als & this is my blog.

i write about random things.
these days i write pretty sporatically.
sometimes i completely rave about something, like a tv show but sometimes i write pretty serious things.
i write in short phrases, i like the freedom of not having to write in proper punctuation and grammar.
i'm a christian. i also ♥ music, art, photography, movies, tv & books.

hope you enjoy ♥

assignments & more assignments #265

why do i always leave assignments to the day or the day before its due?
when i've technically had nearly a month holiday.
i have an assignment due at 5pm tmr
and the stupid thing is that its supposed to be monash's holiday week this week
and lecturers want us to go into uni and hand in the assignment in hardcopy
it would be soooo much more convenient for the approx 200 students to submit it online
but no
the lecturer have to favour themselves and force everyone to come in.

i also have an assignment due friday at 5pm,
but at least thats online.

far out
i think i'm sick again.
i woke up with a sore throat and congested
and i just feel so tired and run down today

in other news, i did my bible study
the turn out was small
so i had to give the answers more often then i'd like
but overall, it was ok.
i really like the way it was written
which was mainly written by heather
i just put it on paper.

so, my hair is dying
i've had a couple of failed attempts
and probably dyed it too my in that past few days.
in my frustration.

i dislike having thick black hair
the colour doesn't change unless you have strong dye or bleach.

MATRIX (ish) #257

me & jacky went to ACMI at fed square today
this is one of the things we did
its like a ninja/kung fu kick
but matrix style
it's funny cos you can sort of see jacky in the doorway
it looks like i'm trying to kick him

jacky was being a party pooper and didn't want to do one.

i think i might go and dye my hair now
because i feel like it
and also i think my fringe looks too dark and heavy being black
hopefully, it will turn out ok

summer plansss #256

been listening to hot chip one life stand the whole day
love the album :)
i'm so glad i bought it last week
my favs are 'i feel better', 'thieves in the night' and 'one life stand'

also, i applied for a debit card finallyyyy
so i don't have to hassle my mum every time i want to buy concert tickets.
its more or less in anticipation for the summer and the summer music festivals
which i intend to go to :)
i'm so excited for the holidays.

also, i haven't really mentioned it here yet
but i finish my exams super early
on the 5th of nov
which is why i can sort of be excited already for the holidays
i can't wait.

also, i've resolved that i probably can't be bothered/won't look for another job for the summer
(unless they'll hire me with my low availability)
and sell all my clothes online instead
because i have A LOT of stuff to get rid of.
i also need to sell my mum's fish tank with a stand and canopy
because all the fish keep dying
and she can't be bothered to buy new fish and feed them every day anymore

damnit, summer come already.

help! i'm alive #255

"i tremble
they're gonna eat me alive.
if i stumble,
they're gonna eat me alive.
can you hear my heart beating like a hammer?
beating like a hammer?
help! i'm alive.
my heart keeps beating like a hammer."

i've been listening to this song on repeat
metric - help, i'm alive
i finally bought the album today
at highpoint
whilst i was there with emma
who was looking for a job.
though she seemed to be hardly looking since she only dropped two resumes

but anyway.
need to studyyyyyyyy

Saturday, September 18, 2010


so, i think this is a sign i'm getting old.
i carry a small pillow with me every saturday
so that i can have a more comfortable sleep on the bus
and especially when its like 8am in the morning
i don't care who sees me.
and i've been doing this for 4 weeks now.

maybe i am getting old.

Friday, September 17, 2010


so today i was meant to be in the city by 1.30
because i was meant to lead a bible study
so i just missed my 12.48 train by about 30 seconds
and so i was forced to take the 1.08 train
which was delayed
because apparently there was some guy walking the tracks
and there was police there
so my train was delayed about 10 minutes
which result me getting to the bible study at 1.40
and super flustered and out of breath.

so, no i didn't end up leading the bible study
i have to do it next week.

Thursday, September 16, 2010


so i was watching this last night
not such a great idea since i was about to go to sleep
its a video from blackboxtv
a youtube channel with videos which explore darker themes than usual videos
i loved this video its really good
like super freaky at first but i really liked it.
also, i'll talk about it more
after you watch the video.
but watch it.
the whole thing.


i really liked the concept that the mum was the zombie trying to stop him from getting to the exit
which was actually death.
so it was actually his mum stopping him from dying.
but the zombies freaked me out though
especially watching it the first time when i didn't know what was going on.

in other news
hung out with emma for most of the day
twas fun.

tv update #251

so i aim to watch new shows and plus my other shows are coming back

so top of my list is modern family
then maybe mad men, i shall give it another go. i saw the first ep of the first season, it was ok but wasn't something i wanted to continue to watch.

i need to catch up on big bang theory, and then watch new eps coming soon.
how i met your mother should be out next tuesday. yes!

also my trashy reality tv is also back.
that is, survivor and america's next top model.
also, i want to watch this season's amazing race because kevjumba and his dad is in it, and they're so funny.

i saw the first ep of season 15 of america;s next top model the other day
it was ok.
though it was stupid, they kept talking about how different everything is now.
it isn't really.
they just changed the prizes from the cover of Seventeen magazine to now the cover of Italian Vogue.
and they also changed the modelling agency (but it seems like they have been changing the agency a lot lately anyway).
but its not that different.
actually, its pretty the same.
though, this season i like all the quirky/weird girls.
the other chicks kind of bore me.
i like ann, though i swear i have seen her some place else before
because she seems so familiar.
or just that she reminds me of a lot of people.
i also like rhianna.
and esther.
but i was like 'my goodness'
when i found other that esther had like a size 30G bra cup size.
but she's so skinny.
and they're not fake.
(i think, because she doesn't seem like the type to have fake boobs. and she covers them completely most of the time)

also, i watched the season finale of true blood.
yes, i watched it, hong.
it was good for a while, but i don't think i'll end up watching next season.
i feel like now, they're stuck in a weird loop
the problems just keep piling up and nothing gets properly resolved.
it's actually getting quite annoying and predictable now.
especially with bill and sookie
its like they're mad in love, then bill does something kind of shifty, then sookie wants nothing to do with him, then they get back together and the cycle begins again.
also random comment.
though, it was probably not a wise thing to do, when bill accidentally drained too much of sookie's blood, sookie put it down as a trust issue. as in after, she was like i can't trust you anymore.
but its stupid, because it wasn't a trust issue. it was a survival issue, he was dying before she fed him, so i thought that didn't correlate properly.
also, sookie screams way too much.
and she screams so loud.
also, tara's mum creeps me out everytime i see her.
she always looks like she's possessed. or something.
last thing on true blood, though everything else is getting pretty annoying.
i really like jessica and hoyt. she's so pretty, and they make a cute couple.

mediocre bad guys #250

"home is wherever we are if there's love here too."
listening to jack johnson
i love it how listening to him can make me instantly smile.
i was a bit sad though
because i can't go see him
at the end of the year because its on the last day of nte
but oh well.
i have heard him sound check before
i didn't see him
but i was at the botanical gardens once
and he was sound checking at sidney myer music bowl
awesome background music.

this also made me lol
how they made the new nano and shuffle
from here


i did quite a few things today

1. went to j&j's bible study. (j&j=jacky and john's) haha.

2. after that, i finally decided i probably should go to the doctor. i think because i'm pretty certain i need antibiotics, i finally went. also, i don't know if it was intentional, because if it was that's so dodgy. the pharmacy i went to didn't give me my repeats. i don't know if that was accidental, because if it wasn't that means i have to go back to that particular pharmacy to get my repeat if i need it. that's so dodgy.

3. ice cream. so whilst me and jacky were wandering the city, we decided we wanted icecream. & jacky had these vouchers for this new place on bourke st, passionflower. and so we were being naughty and decided to use the 2 for 1 voucher instead of the 50% off voucher. and got like a plate of strawberry chocolate pancakes and one of waffles with chocolate icecream. and the servings were HUGE. i felt like a pig. haha.

4. cd sale. so borders i think were trying to clear all their cds for some reason. it was all cds for $10 or 4 for $30. i was a bit annoyed i didn't have more money, because it meant i had to carefully select 4 only, because i could pretty much only use $30. sigh. i so could have spent more than that if i had more money. i bought mostly cds that i should already have and are completely my collection.

i bought:
-bat for lashes - fur & gold
-ladyhawke - ladyhawke
- jack johnson - brushfire fairy tales
- jack johnson - sleep through static

5. after that. at night i had leaders meeting for church and we spent quite a long time to figure out new names for the new service/group. ideas?

Sunday, September 12, 2010


i had cheese fondue again for the second time in three days
the first time was on friday for girls night
there was also chocolate fondue and apricot as well
today was for girls book club at tash's place
it was just cheese fondue
but we had cheesecake for dessert.

and for the record.
yes, i'm getting fat.

#247 spufulupugus.

i love nicepeter.
he's awesome.
i like him more than mystery guitar man
simply because i appreciate his musicality more than MGMs editing
(though it is good, but it gets kind of old)
but yes, this is one of my fav songs of his.
its soo cute :)


Friday, September 10, 2010


so a few of you know I watch the SHAYTARDS vlogs every day pretty much
well, today shay announced something i thought was massively cool.
so some context, shay quite often throws his children in the air
and takes pictures of it
and there's this one pic taken a long time ago that caught the interest of James Blunt
and so, babytard is now on the cover of James Blunt's new album
how cool is that?

feverrrr #245

felt really sick today
as in last night when i fell alseep i was freezing even though i had so many blankets on
and this morning i woke up sweating real bad
and during the day i'd bee sweating at random times
and felt really cold at random times
it was really bad.
i would have stayed home but i had lots of stuff to do today

- i went to see my supervisor, and he said my report was 'on its way', so i was pretty relieved. plus with a month still and have a while to refine it and make it much better

- i went to find emma afterwards, and we were going to get free food from melb uni but we decided to stay in rmit and i ended up testing her on her chinese for her test. our conversations were kind of funny, especially if you don't understand how chinese characters work because i'd be saying stuff like 'it's like a horse in a box.' or 'it has a heart at the bottom' or 'it has a car.' or 'it has a rice, a day and a cat?' and that word happened to mean ruined. so rice+day+cat=ruined. LOL

- then after that i met with Hon, to help me with the bible study i'm going to lead next week.

and after that i felt really tired and sick and went home
ate dinner and went to be at 7.40 and woke up again at 11.20 pm
and yes.

#244 sleepy head

"there's a drumming noise inside my head
it starts when you're around.
i swear that you should hear it,
it makes such an almighty sound."
i love this pic of florence
i love the red hair contrasting with the blue cape/dress
she's mega awesome.

didn't really do much today
i woke up feeling quite sick
with the worst sore throat.
and feeling really run down
so i went back to bed,
ended up waking up at 2pm.
haha, whoops.
then i was studying a bit til 6
and i ended up napping again til 7.
double whoops.
so i have pretty much slept for the whole day.

also, managed to finish a full length draft of my report yesterday night
its not very good
but much better than the first draft
and i still have a month to improve it
yes, its totally a big weight lifted off my shoulders

p.s. finally updated my songs, pic & quote.

#243 bluetooth

a funny incident happened involving me, daniela, leila, our mobiles & bluetooth
so leila was trying to send something to daniela via bluetooth
and for some reason it was working
(we figured later that it was the daniela's phone)
so they needed a middle man
so then we tried to send it from leila to me to daniela
which took a while but i managed to connect to leila
and it connected, very well.
my phone for some reason could find the list of every single file on her phone
which is pretty funny
and extremely stalker-ish.
we didn't manage to get the file to daniela in the end
because her bluetooth didn't work probably.

also, we found the picture left pretty funny.
dark fruit = leila
it's like the iphone was saying 'meh, its just leila. let's forget her.'

#242 clothesssssssss

narcissistic much?
so some guy i sort of know invited me to become a fan of their own fan page on facebook.
um, no.

but anyway,
today there was 50% off clothing at savers
so me and my mum got there at like 8am to go shop
it was really weird because i never ever get up that early except to go to work
but a funny thing happened
when my mum woke me up
i woke up so confused, because i forgot why i was waking it up so early
i was thinking 'what? i don't have work today. its not saturday is it?'
it took me about 30 seconds to remember
but yes, bought lots of stuff.
mainly dresses and tops.
and cardigans and blazers.
didn't get any jeans or pants or anything because i couldn't be bothered waiting for the change room
the line was way too long.
(i was trying on the rest of the stuff in front of mirror)
also, a kind of strange thing
i bought a lot of pink.
i don't usually buy pink, but i may have bit of a change of heart.
it was two salmon pink dresses
(i quite like salmon pink these days).
another soft pink dress
and a white/baby pink striped top.
amongst other clothes.

i have way too many clothes now though,
i don't even hang all my clothes on the rack in fear that the thing would snap
its already quite bent now.
but i just love shopping too much :)

#241 shady ladies


so today in the morning church service the sunday school kids sang for father's day
they were cute
except the older boys were a bit annoyed we made them wear streamers on their wrists
also, grace managed to make a clubbing/r&b song reference while we were practising
was pretty funny because no one else understood it
though we were in a fit of laughter.

afterwards, there was food
because its father's day.
its always the best food because all the adults bring a dish.
love it ♥

after that still, bri decided he wanted to go to essendon dfo
so me, emma & grace came along for the ride
haha, no.
we came along to shop.
so, i bought two pairs of boots
(which my mum will be funding for because she really wants me
to throw out my old ones)
as well as trying on many different sunnies/glasses with emma.
lol at the one with me in the red sunnies and theres the guy in the back :)
also the last one, i think i look like nelly yuki from gossip girl
what do you think?

Saturday, September 4, 2010


had work in the morning
same old.
though my boss was kind of fearing that we'd get flooded again
because there was heavy rain and flooding forecast for the weekend
but it was all good in the end.

also, went to jimmy's 21st
twas quite fun
i loved sonja, jean & karthika's speech/singing :)
it was soo cute.
also, the cupcakes were awesome.
(though it was technically a muffin with cheese icing.
i had a blueberry one,
it was very blueberrylicious.

Friday, September 3, 2010


sorry i have been out of action this week.
been stressed out as usual
this stupid research subject has been completely draining me
because when i do assignments or reports
i usually spend whole days on it
and because this is such a continual thing
sort of
it has been taking up most of my energy
this semester
even though 90% of the time spent for it
i'm not actually doing anything
i'm more or less stressing about what a hard task this is going to be

i'll be back on schedule (haha) next week.

#238 double rainbow

in light of the bed intruder post
i'm loving this as well
i love the chorus for this song :)

Wednesday, September 1, 2010
