Writer's Block: Work, work, work

Would you rather work at a job that you enjoy but pays little or work at a miserable job that pays a lot?

I've always said that I'd prefer being paid less to do something I love than getting paid heaps and wanting to kill myself everyday because of work and being miserable there.

As long as I have enough to get by and I'm not struggling financially I'd be perfectly content with that I think.

D=D

I went to book my P's test on September 18-19 weekend but not available, 25-26 not available either so I think I'll just book it on a day when I don't have uni once my uni timetable is up.......

Weekdays are free, every single Monday timeslot is free pretty much XD!

Must squeeze in lots of practise since lack of P's has been killing me on the inside for years! NEED THEM! MUST DRIVE!

I think I am just worried about failing and not having them but there are plenty of drivers worse than me I'm sure so I'll be ok D=. Will get a couple driving lessons soon to figure out what I need to improve on and then some more driving lessons just before I take the test to make sure I'm ready. NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED!! ;_______________; seriously once I get them I will be floating on the clouds ^___________^

Karaoke with Lain and co. on Saturday was great ^^ all her friends are lovely and D= can they sing DDDDD= professionals there! Worked yesterday on the main gate, brought through 2 friends from wushu and walked around with them once I was done. Got a really good look at our 4 tiger cubs, they're sooooo cute ^^! The first time I went to look at them after work, I only saw one and it was obscured behind some bamboo but they were nice and visible this time XD! The only time I get to see all the animals is when I take friends around since I just wanna go home after I finish work usually. Had dinner on Lygon street with them after that, 2nd night in the row of Lygon street Italian food! Nearly went to Toto's again until Jay we decided to go to this other place further down. The pizza chef was quite the joker and he threw a lump of dough which scared Sophia, but not nearly as much as when he threw a fake plastic spider on the table which made her squeal, and then before shoving a pizza in her face on the long shovel type wood-fired pizza shovelly thing XD!

D= this man plays music with food!


Intro and demo to all his instruments


Apple Ocarina - London Bridge

This guy was inspired by the Vegetable Orchestra from Vienna who play music with fresh fruit and vegetables ^^!

After looking at the Vegetable Orchestra, this guy is much more musically talented I think XD! The Vegetable Orchestra just play percussion without much melody but this guy can play! No drummer jokes please! D= percussion is good but there wasn't any melody XD!

SHINY NEW JACKET!!!

I picked up this awesomely shiny Monash Wushu club jacket ^^! Collect all the merchandise XD! It is an honour for me to wear it to training! I shall wear it with pride!
SHINY PICS!Collapse )

Skin deep

This is very interesting to me observing the, what seems like, hundreds of Facebook posts and all around celebrations by Asians of all sorts, about Korea defeating Greece in the world cup. It would appear to me that these people are supporting Korea merely on the fact that they are an Asian country, which made me wonder if Greece's neighbours or people around the world with similar complexion would be cheering for Greece purely on the appearance of their players......I think not?

I think that cheering exclusively for Asians because you're an Asian is like screaming out "WHITE POWER!" in support of all whites or light coloured people purely based on their skin colour and appearance. "Asian Pride" = White Power, they have the exact same meaning, discrimination based on ethnicity or physical appearance.

Studying my international relations unit "Nationality, ethnicity and conflict" has got me thinking about these sorta issues. I was going to post this on Facebook in response to all the posts but I don't want to bring everyone down with my critical social commentary XD.

What do you think about it all?

Linc day and joke

Thanks Linc for organising the gathering today. Was good to see everyone again and to meet Val and mparf. The Mongolian place was awesome! The chef guy was cool, just chucking it on the shield and stirring it around before sloshing it all back into the bowl. Loved the food and the way it all worked XD! Just how simple and basic, crude came to mind but that implies that it's bad, which it wasn't! Meat mwahaha and decent veggies you can pick yourself was nice! My stomach felt funny from the chili I ate at lunch and I think I'm still feeling the effects now D= ! Yes beanie, I'm not Asian and proud of it! I can eat my chili, just not quite hold it comfortably XD!

The toilet there was quite funny. I must have been the first person to use the gents that day so I went in and the light was off so I felt around for the switch but couldn't feel it so I got my phone out to use as a light and managed to find it eventually. It was in the worst position ever D=


Which I have clearly outlined with the red X in this schematic diagram! =DDDDDDD so it was behind the door when you open it, truly brilliant!


Saw this on my FB tonight posted by this guy from high school DDDDDDDDD= !

Writer's Block: Say cheese

Do you generally like or hate when people take photos of you? Do you feel anxious when friends post pictures of you online? Is your first inclination to link to them or hide them?

Blame cosplay and anime club friends for making me want to be in millions of photos! Photos are <333333333 and before that I used to actually care if I looked bad in photos. That's the point! You're supposed to look bad in photos.....and others will laugh at you and in turn you laugh at them! It's all happy! ^^

Exceptions are looking bad in cosplay photos when you're supposed to be smokin' hot XD!

Writer's Block: High school musical

If you had to choose a theme song for your middle or high school years, what would it be, and why?

Firstly oh gard, high school musical please no.........XD!

Well, when I was in year 12 back in 2006 I was listening to The Ataris and their song In This Diary was sort of a soundtrack for my feelings for ending high school and becoming an adult (of sorts....X3). Back in the day when I listened to pop punk sorta stuff, very youth oriented lyrics XD!

SONG HERE!

****************************************************************************
Here in this diary,
I write you visions of my summer.
It was the best I ever had.
There were choruses and sing-alongs,
And that unspoken feeling of knowing
Right now is all that matters
All the nights we stayed up talking
and listening to 80's songs;
quoting lines from all those movies that we love.
It still brings a smile to my face.
I guess when it comes down to it...

Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up:
These are the best days of our lives.
The only thing that matters
is just following your heart
and eventually you'll finally get it right.

Breaking into hotel swimming pools,
and wreaking havoc on our world.
Hanging out at truck stops just to pass the time.
The black top's singing me to sleep.
Lighting fireworks in parking lots,
illuminate the blackest nights.
Cherry cokes under this moonlight summer sky.
2015 Riverside, it's time to say, "goodbye."
Get on the bus, it's time to go.

Being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up:
These are the best days of our lives.
The only thing that matters
is just following your heart,
and eventually you'll finally get it right.

****************************************************************************
The "being grown up isn't half as fun as growing up" part was very nostalgic for me at the time XD! As was the whole of The Ataris' 'So Long Astoria' album ^^.

Writer's Block: Do-over!

If you were given a life do-over card, would you keep it or give it to a friend? If you kept it, would you prefer to be born to the same or different parents? Would you want to keep your memories?


Well I'd most certainly give it to a friend. I think I've been pretty fortunate with my life to be given the opportunities I have and to have had the parents I've had. They're not perfect but none are and they could be terrible but they're not. They can't be called bad parents, not my dad at least, so no doing over with my life. I think the concept of wanting to redo something, most cases it isn't life changing but sometimes it could be and people who experience those could really do with a do-over card I think.

If I could change things, I wouldn't have bought some stupid things like 18 volumes of Bleach manga *facepalms* and would have studied harder in VCE and as of yesterday. Wish I could have been more outgoing from an earlier age and more confident in myself. I wish I could have been more open minded at an earlier age and more open to things. But overall I have a great life and cannot complain one bit! I'm happy with who I am right now and where I am ^^!

Life is all about mistakes though. MY LIFE IS A MISTAKE D=!!!! then sometimes I do some things right ^^! YAY!

It's good because I've been fortunate enough to make friends such as all of you <333333333333333333 much love to you all! You make my life awesome! ^^
