My sweet midnight surprise.

with one comment

You sang me Spanish lullabies
The sweetest sadness in your eyes

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream

So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should have known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

Its nice how some pictures remind me of songs that I love. Image from Facehunter, lyrics from A Fine Frenzy.

Sleep deprivation

with one comment

Mavis redid this quiz thingy, and I remember doing it years ago too, so I decided to redo it too, because commlaw is boring and I’m taking a break. I’m a copycat, neh neh whatever.

How does the world see me?

She had the world – Panic at the disco. And someday I will.

Will I have a happy life?

Down for so long – The Rapture. So my life will be happy when I’m not down? That kind of makes sense.

What do people really think of me?

Hey girl – Figurines. This is a rather cute & happy song, and yes people think I’m a girl, maybe its because I am?

Do people secretly lust after me?

Sipping on the sweet nectar – Jens Leckman. They lust after my sweet nectar. ahhahahahaha.

How can I make myself happy?

Fear of the future – Shitdisco. Don’t fear the future, I hear a speech about living life for the moment in my head right about now. But yeah, that’s really quite true.

What should I do with my life?

Bandits – Reverand and the makers. Lol, but I’ll make a horrible thief, I’ll probably set the alarms off or spill something.

Will I ever have children?

Damned ladies – Rufus Wainwright. Yes, I’m a damned lady, because I’m going to have kids that will rip my perfect pretty pussy.

What is some good advice for me?

Another saturday night – The Orchids. Yes, today is just another saturday night, its alright that I’m not out having a ball, I have to study and there will be many more saturday nights to have fun.

What is my current theme song?

Fuego! – Murder by death. Omg, This song is very very horny. 

“She walked with fire at her heels. 
The scent of smoke on the breeze.
Wherever she goes that’s where I’ll be.
Whatever she wants that’s what I need.
Baby, it’s been so long that even the roses hips are turning me on.
Baby, it’s been so long.

I want you.” – hotness

What does everyone else think my current theme song is?

Electro Man – Calvin Harris. Um, this is weird.

What song will play at my funeral?

It’s not over yet – Klaxons. Cause the party is going to be carried on in hell? Lol.

What type of men/women do you like?

Blue Flower, Blue Flame – Destroyer. Nice.

“I gave you a flower because foxes travel light, 
And a penny for your thoughts was, 
never enough, your head gets filled with that stuff.”

What is my day going to be like?

Le Disko – Shiny Toy Guns. How is that possible? You lying. I’ll be studying then meeting Sam, then meeting Charbs & co. There’s no disco in that. Maybe its more abstract, like my life is a disco cause its so busy, or CommLaw is making me lezzie.

Why am I here?

Ever fallen in love – Nouvelle Vague. Yes, at the end of the day, underneath my cynical, bitchy exterior, I’m just looking for love. Most accurate answer so far.

What will people remember me for?

Foolish Love – Rufus Wainwright. But if love is not foolish then what is the point of it all?

What song will be stuck in my head tomorrow?

Kiss Kiss – Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Love this song.

What will this year be all about?

The world is outside – The Ghosts. Appropriate. Open your eyes, the world is outside your door.

4am is the best time to ramble.

leave a comment »

So, my brain is FULL of thoughts, like really random things.

Tonight juju, moo and I went to HOME after like 2 months and it was B-O-O-O-O-O-R-I-N-G. Srsly, its sad. I’ve had some of the best times of my entire life there and now its this sad little decrepit hole with young skanks who are always high. Ugh. 

I feel like eating prata, soaked in curraye.

I got a haircut, WM called it a blowjob haircut and he said that I was ready to be a porn star. I thought it was hilarious & ended up taking alot of pictures in very compromising positions. Self fulfilling prophecy perhaps?

Today’s stats paper was shit, it just gave me a MASSIVE headache. I hate/ detest/ cannot tahan exams. Can’t wait for the next two weeks to pass, so I’ll be free. 

I seriously love magazines, I don’t care if they are 50% adverts, full of brainless articles that I could write if you got me really high and are not very environmentally friendly, I really love magazines. Especially because they are glossy.

My eyebags are really really ugly. I need sleep.

I much prefer typing to writing, it’s so much easier. They should make all our written exams be typed out, especially law, think about it. That would make things alot better.

I hate the way Skins Season 2 ended. I have SO MANY QUESTIONS and no one to answer them. Argh.

I really want to watch Gossip Girl Season 2. My mission for the weekend is to find it.

I don’t think I’ve told alot of people this, but 4am is my favorite time of the day. The whole world is asleep (except me of course) its chilly outside and its so peaceful. Its like everyone is actually shutting up and I really love the quiet. But I’m way too much of a city girl to live like this all the time, but that’s what makes the silence so special. It all ends at 5+am though, that’s the time my grandma wakes up. She’s insane like that.

Don’t you wanna come with me?

Whatever you do – do it in style because the world needs it.

I ❤ Dita.

My life is super so sad with all the studying, numbers and more studying. I study mostly ALONE in the school library. I need some sort of social intercourse dammit…. weekend, waiting for the weekend. 

A few things have made me happy though!

  • Money money money, we are finally eligible for the GST offset package and growth dividends. (: If you are below 21 then ITSUX2BEYOU.
  • Today I saw a lady (ok, she was an aunty) in a tee shirt that read “Thank your’s lucky sta”. I usually find tee shirts like these lying around some stall in Bugis Village, but today I actually SAW someone wearing this one. Fabulous. 
  • This ugly little kitten!! So ugly that its adorable. 

It even sleeps with a little “Oh dear!” paw thing going on. AHHHHHH! Kill me pls.

VogueItalia0408 – Pure Wonder

Wow, seriously.

In the midst of some serious hardcore studying I managed to make time for dinner every night with some people. Well, a girl has to eat. 

The first dinner was with Charbs&co, I love the fact that we meet every Friday. But nobody had a camera during dindin. It was good though, we had dinner at Hong Kong Kim Gary (no food courts! We have upgraded) If you do go there, have the noodles which are cooked “typhoon shelter” style. Other then having a seriously Hong Kong name it was very very spicy and very very good. 

Samsam, Shanshan and AbelWhoFellOffTheCable

Saturday, I went out with Sam who now looks like a typical army boy and we had claypot chicken curry noodles for dinner. Quite nice really, its from the basement food court at Lucky Plaza.

After dinner I went down to my workplace to collect my pay and met Shan for a drink. Felt good having a drink after studying hard all week. 

Then on Sunday, I decided to meet Weiming for dinner and coffee (: we sat at Spinelli’s and talked about music, models, hot policemen and my birthday plans for a few hours. Was all good.

Its good to have friends. I love my friends, can’t imagine life without them.

Somewhere along the way the saying I died and went to heaven (usually used to describe orgasms and live music) became I died and went to school. Sigh. I’ll emerge with a head (chin, upper lip and maybe pussy) of white hair in about 5 weeks and hopefully I’ll still be sane. I sincerely hope that you’ll still be my friend. All my modules this sem have too many fucking numbers in them. Argh. 

Peace out, bitches.
