Uni Angst (I like that word - ANGST!)

Hmm, haven't written anything in here for a while. Well, I guess there's nothing new to report. Semester 2 has started, blah blah. Oh yeh. I know what I can talk about! Well, as you may or may not know, I was enrolled in Science/Commerce for the first two years before I switched into Health Science/Commerce. Well, turns out that I've got too many level 1 science units, and I'm missing 12 points of level 2 science units. As in, I don't graduate if I don't have them. This means I will be overloading this semester (again) and next semester as well, and the one after that as well. Well, as much as a pain this is, I'm just glad that I found this out now while I still have time to deal with it. Imagine how pissed I would be if I finish my 5 years only to be told: nope, you can't graduate. So yeh, more fun times ahead with the overloading. But, I did get all Distinctions last sem, so can't be all that bad huh. (Yes, I know I'm bragging, I don't care, I fucking deserve it!) OR, I might be able to credit two of my level 1 science units as a level 2, in which case I won't need to overload. I'm kinda waiting for an email to decide my fate.

Ok, I don't care if none of youse got what I just typed, to you it might sound like blah blah uni blah points credit blah. But yeh that's about my main worry at the moment.

Oooh! I just got off the phone with Gabs!! From Singapore! How exciting! :D

Ok what else. Been working, did 8 hours last night, 6 the night before. Got work again tonight. My feet hurt. No, scrub that. My legs hurts. Like my whole entire leg, from standing long hours I guess. That, or as my brother puts it so eloquently (sp?) "It's coz you're fucking fat."

And on that happy note, I'm off!

'Arry Pothead!

WARNING: Don't read unless you want to know what happens in Harry Potter!

Ok, so I can't not do a Harry Potter post. All the cool kids are doing it!

So yeah. WOW. What a book. What an ending. I'm amazed at all the details which seem to all end up perfectly explained in this book, all the little bits and pieces of information from the previous seven books which ties in all beautifully in the last book. It makes me wonder though, if the author really had it all planned out from the first book, or whether a lot of the things were kinda made up as she went along. Things like, I dunno, all the pensieve moments of James as school kids. Or the not-so-subtle hints at Aberforth being Dumbledore's brother. Or all the charms and spells. But then again, this is the Harry Potter world, where magic seems to make anything seem possible. Or at the very least, offer an explanation to any abnomalies.

And I'm glad Snape was not the baddie. Kinda expected it though, with all those hints throughout the books of Dumbledore having an iron-clad reason to trust him. But. I did not like how the reason was coz he was in love with Lily Evans! I mean, WTF?! That's bordering on a soap opera twist! At least he wasn't Harry's father though. Even though that would've been impossible, as Harry is meant to be a dead-ringer for James Potter. Except for the eyes, he has Lily's eyes. Sheeze, how many times has that been rammed down our throats. But yeh he ended up naming one of his kids Albus Severus, with the other kids James and Lily. Kinda unfair how he got to pick, or at least was a major force in deciding the names of his kids. I mean, Ginny had lost family members too, I thought at least one of them would've been a Fred. Maybe James' middle name is Fred. Although that's not a very middle-name-ish name, issit?

Hmmm what else. Oh yeh, I had this amazing theory on Aunt Petunia being a closet witch, or Dudley having powers, and I dunno, doing something. But no, they kinda just went into hiding in the second chapter, and that was the last they were ever mentioned of again. I also read somewhere online that Dumbledore and/or McGonagall had spouses, I had this wild idea that Dumbledore had a wife with magical mystical powers. Or at least had had a secret love affair with McGonagall. *sniggers*

Got more stuff, but kinda can't be bothered doing this blogging thing no more. Gonna go see if there are any online discussion posts for the new book!

Nude Shoes

Inspired by this post

I dunno. I used to think nude shoes looked a bit weird, coz its flesh-coloured and that. Well, I guess flesh-coloured if you're pinky-yellowy in colour, not if you're black or anything. Anyway, I digress. (Sheeze I always hated people who said I digress in blogs. Well, if you can't beat them...) ANYHOO. Lately I've been thinking that nude shoes would be so cool! Then I see this post on the iamfashion site.

They would match everything and anything! Coz they're basically just extensions of your legs, so they'll guarantee match whatever you're wearing! And I think they elongate your legs. So yeh. Purty.

Damn, I wish I needed new shoes. Shouldn't buy any more, considering I have like 3 new pairs I still haven't worn. The black denim-y pointy toe high heels, the black velvety stacked peep-toe heel and the pink strappy one. See, I remember them all! I just don't remember them when it actually comes to deciding what to wear when going out.

In other news, I can't believe Harry Potter got leaked! Well, it's not so surprising, I mean, given the high demand and interest in the books and the mass-coordination and all that that would go into shipping and delivering and that. But still! I'm really afraid that I'll be reading my normal sites and the spoiler "Voldemort is Harry Potter's father!" or something will pop up. Hehe, what a Star-Wars-ian twist.

Anyway, I'll leave you with a picture of the Harry Potter kids. I'm sure most of you would have seen this by now (well, those of you who stalk numerous celebrity/fashion sites anyway).

I think the wind is blowing it so it looks weird, but I love Katie's dress! Er. Except her purple burns victim leggings and matching shoes. But yeh. The dress looks like a water painting! Me likes very much. Hehe, and before I went to watch the movie, I thought the blonde next to Rupert was the actress who played Ginny, not Luna Lovegood. Hehe. I thought she dyed her hair or something.

All work and no play...

Been pretty busy with work lately. Had training on Monday, did nearly 9 hours on Tuesday, 8 on Wednesday, 7 and a half on Friday and 8 hours last night. Got home at 3, I was working at the bar and it was so hectic! Coz Christina Aguilera was staying at the Hyatts, and all her back-up dancers and band and that came to the bar after the show. Man, it was nuts! I was in a constant state of panic. Got $22 worth of tips though, which is good. Oh, got slapped on the bum as a thank-you, which was not good. Sleazy bastard. Anyway, the plan was to go to Niche (?) in Subi after work, with the back-up dancers, coz one of my work mates wanted to go. But by the time we finished we were just so knackered, all I wanted to do was crawl into bed and pass out. Which I did. They weren't hot anyway. :P

P.S. Who wants to go watch Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix with me? Hmm, let me rephrase that: Wee when you free next week? Hee. I really wanna watch it before the 7th book comes out, to get me in the Harry Potter mood.

Monday, July 2


So, I have just done up my timetable for Semester 2, and it is the most fucked up timetable ever! On Wednesday, I will have: a lecture at 9, a 2 hour tute at 10, a lecture at 12, a tute at 1, another tute at 2, and then I'll run to catch the second half of a 2 hour lecture at 3. How fun! And I can't change it, as there isn't alot of options. Blehh.

In other news, my shift for tonight was cancelled so now I have changed out of my pjs for nothing. Blehh.

P+P + MB = S2

Hehe. Combining my two current loves/infatuations, Michael Buble and Pride and Prejudice. You don't have to watch them if you don't want to, its more so I don't have to look for them everytime I wanna watch them. :P Hehe, can you spot the fake?
