Children are cute, adorable and so nice to play with but once they cry everything suddenly turns pretty grim.
But! what can you do but still love them?
Hi people! It's been a really long time since I've posted something here. I was busy, stressed and have been going to many places as usual. I just finished my exam month so I'm currently in my vacation mode. In short, I am very relaxed, very lazy and feeling like I don't want to do anything. Unfortunately, that's not what life has in store for me. Even though university has already finished for this academic year, I still have a lot to do for it. So for this summer my plan is, to finish my personal statement and CV to apply for my research project next year, wait for my exam results, apply for the UKCAT test, work, go on vacation with the family to ROME!!! , sit the UKCAT test, work, hopefully be able to join the YFC European conference on August, organise my files and finally the academic year starts again. So you see, it's not really a very relaxing holiday - except of course the vacation to Rome :)
This is it for now. Hopefully, I'll be able to post more stuff here now that I have more free time from school. *fingers crossed*
Ola mi amigo! mi amiga! :)
I hope I got that greeting right! How have you all been
To say the least, this evening was interesting. Some of my friends and I went out to have dinner in an arabic restaurant called Al Batta. I remember going there before during Guy Fawkes night last year with some of my other friends after watching the fireworks at the castle park. It was late at night but we didn't want to go back to our respective houses yet and so, we went in search for somewhere to have coffee in and hang out. But, that is a story for another day.
Back to tonight's dinner! As I was saying, tonight was an interesting night. Why? Simply because of the topics we discussed throughout the night. We talked about different things from our love life - which in my case is very quick since I have none - to their cultures. To give you some background, the friends I was with today are from arab/muslim countries thus, their culture is drastically different from mine since I came from a south east asian/catholic country. In their culture, arranged marriage is practiced naturally and some of them don't even get to have a choice whether to accept or not. They get proposals from men (sometime even their cousins) sent to their families to ask for their hand and it is hard for them to be in a relationship -- especially one that is met with disapproval from both of their families. And even though some of them is not having any arranged marriage, they are given pressure by their families to find someone and get married
This made me think
For me, all these talks about arranged marriage is something that I never even considered. Yes, I had written stories about it and thought of it but it was something I knew would never happen to me. I didn't even know anyone that seriously go through the process of arranged marriage -- till now that is. And that made it real. It made me realize that it actually happen and that people do go through with it. It wasn't just a thought in my head or something I read or something I watched on TV. It actually does happen! It's real! And then, I thought I am very lucky. I don't know if it's right to feel this way but I'm just glad that I don't have to worry about such things and feel pressured about getting married. I don't even have anyone right now, never mind getting married! I have to have a boyfriend for that to happen!
But nevertheless, I just hope and pray that my friends will have a future filled with happiness and love with whomever they end up with, whether it be arranged or not
Do you ever get that feeling that you're talking too much? Or whenever you open your mouth it's all about you, you, you? Yes?
Well, actually that's what I'm feeling right now... I think I'm too self-centred that I dominate the conversation too much. I've had this feeling since before and I'm sort of getting down about it. So what I thought I should do was to maybe, try and not talk about myself as much and let the other person do the talking.
The title doesn't make sense but this is about those things up there. haha
As all of you may have noticed, I haven't been posting anything on this journal. Actually it may have already been a month or so since I've last updated it. Well, as usual, Saya has been lazy and it's not just with LJ, it continued on to my University duties. Some may say, or rather I agree with this my self, that a good student spends time to at least read about her subjects (in my case lectures) and do all the things that needs to be done (Homeworks, lab reports, worksheets, group assignments... etc.) before the deadline. Ok, well I do the last part, because my Uni is harsh on that one. If ever we pass something late, we won't get any credits for it and so it would have been a waste of time. What I'm guilty of, is the first part and maybe not doing my lab reports when I still have time to do it, instead of cramming in the last second. As you can tell, I, Saya, am not really being a good student.
Since, this is like a confession (of sorts), I will be honest. It seems that I am eternally distracted by my computer, which is ironic, because I can't do my lab reports unless I use it. (Darn it Lappy! Why are you so adorable and so hard to resist?!) And thus, all of my Uni works has been pushed aside that easily. If that doesn't make me lazy and shows my lack of self-control, I don't know what to can call it.
So, enough of that! Hopefully, I'd figure out how I can manage myself and my time more efficiently by next week. On to spammers we go. I have been noticing them a lot recently, and somehow, I am not amused. What can you gain by spamming?! It's annoying and doesn't make any sense at all. If you are doing this, I suggest you stop. It's a complete waste of time and effort! Unless, well you're some kind of program that was designed for this exact purpose or you're just a lonely person on the borderline of insanity. Either way, STOP!
*phew* I shall stop ranting as well. haha.
P.S. I love Skip Beat! :D
