another period rantListening to: nothing
Oh PMS. I hate you I hate you I hate you! I had a severe stomache last night I only slept for like 3,5 hours because the pain kept me awake til the morning. The emotional baggage. But you know what I hate about PMS? More fashion faux pas than ever! It's like I can't decide what looks good on me yet I'm tired of the style I'm normally comfortable with. If I were a celebrity I would definitely make the fashion police section in glossy magazines and tabloids alike when I had PMS and/or period. Then my fans would defend me. They'd be like, 'Leave the girl alone, she's just on the rag goshdarnit!' Hahahahaha.

mad and madderListening to: myself humming Owner of A Lonely Heart
Alright. So I'm delusional. And yes, I know it's a bad, bad thing. There. Happy now?
I'm not going to the ball (well unless someone asks me out) but I'm still sooo getting that dress. It's much more beautiful than last year's dress (speaking of which I was actually conned into buying that crap. Evil woman. I'm glad the boutique closed down) and it's much cheaper too.
I love NZ with all my maddening-by-the-minute heart and yes I still want to spend the rest of my life here but with that thing going on I don't think I can manage it. I don't even want to stay another year after graduation to work before doing postgrad in Singapore as initially planned. I want to leave immidiately (which means I'll have to do my postgrad application now) and stay there for three years (two years of school and one of work) then come back to NZ when things will have calmed down. That sounds like a plan.

bah humbugListening to: nothing
Why do you always delete my comments lately?
They were right. You don't give a flying fuck about me. Not even as a friend. You don't hear from me for a year, maybe ten years, and it would never cross your mind that I might be on the other side of the globe happily married with four kids. Or planning to take over the world. Or running a brothel back home. Or dead.
Bah. I can't believe I've been more delusional than ever these past several months.
On a happier note: I passed all of my papers. And with only one C-.

even more update...Listening to: nothing
I had work as student ambassador on Wednesday and it was damn boring. Thanks to the weather, not many people turned up to the orientation. According to one of the Uniguides, the number of new students attending was 183, and that's far below last year around this time or the years prior. But we got paid all the same hahahahaha.
On Tuesday, we had Quiz Night for international students. There was one from Indonesia, a guy. Upon finding out I was a countryman (I had a tag with my name and country of origin on), he said I was the first Indo he met since he arrived all of four days earlier. Then he went on to rant about how there weren't many Indos in Auckland and asked me if I'd be interested in starting an Indo community at uni. I was like, 'Dude, if I wanted to mingle with Indos while I'm overseas I'd go to Aussie or Singapore not Auckland,' and I left because I had work to do. Afterward I felt guilty, but then again he annoyed the fuck out of me...Someone should've told him that Aucks, or NZ for that matter, wasn't the place for him if he sought to bump into Indos every other day. And that's why I set foot here in the first place. What's the point in living abroad if you hang out with your country mates? As for an Indo community, well that's an appaling idea. I'm not even registered in the Indonesian student association here and I like it that way.
Anyway I'm sooo frikken excited...we're having another exhibition on July 19 woohoo! It will take place at Alleluyah Cafe, also at K'Road, at 06.00 PM. I have yet to decide which photos to submit and it's a tough job! Hahahaha.

update on me. sorry i cant think of a more creative title.Listening to: nothing
My mum called me at friggin 2 in the morning to inform me that one of my grandaunts passed away exactly last week.
This grandaunt of mine finally surrendered to the cancer she had been battling in the past four years (methinks), and while I'm sad about the loss I'm happy on the other hand because her misery was finally put to an end. I already miss her. Growing up, I used to be scared stiff of her because she was a very strict disciplinarian. Hahahhaha. And my mum always took me to her house when I was vacationing back home. Next time I come home to Indo maybe we'll still visit her house for her husband and daughter still live there, but of course we won't find her. So sad.
Off topic, somebody stole my pink Polo cardigan from the laundry. Asshole! But oh well. It's just a clothing item *shrugs*
Off topic again, here's me doing one of things I do best (hahahahaha)...playing Rachel Zoe!

As usual, the layout was coded by me and other images except the ones for fanlistings, cliques, and quizzes were created by me as well using Adobe Photoshop 7.0. Don't steal.
