this is a blog, not twitter

I realized all my posts have been really short and simple. This is what happens, I guess, when one is lazy. I always want to blog, but never feel like writing a really long and reflective kind of post.

Anyway, today was my last day of exams. So glad that the toughest phase of any semester is now finally the end. But there were a lots of series of unfortunate events that happened along the way.

Most noticeably is the fact that just as I got into my driver's seat to get ready to drive to the exam hall for our last paper, my car battery died. I know, so cheh right? LOL. It just had to happened at that moment. I could not start my engine and with 45 minutes remaining before our exam starts, Sia and me quickly rush to the bus stop and halt a taxi to the exam hall. We did reached in time, but not with a lot of puzzlement and panic on my part.

So now, I am car-less, if there was ever such a word. Not having a car feels like a part of me is missing. And worst still, I have an appointment with my supervisor at 8am early tomorrow morning and I have to wake up early to take the bus. So sad;(

Because of the sudden "demise" of my car, I had to cancel all my after-exams activities, which previously included 2 shopping trips. One is, however been postponed and the other one is ultimately cancelled. Oh well, on a positive note, it could be a good thing as I can save money.

The end of finals signify the beginning or technically, the continuation of my final year research project. However, I feel so de-motivated to get my ass off my chair and my eyes off my laptop to bring myself to go to HUKM and continue with my thesis. Eventually, I will have to. And soon too, as I have a quota to fulfill and I am nowhere near that amount of people.

This week I have learned a lot of things, not only academically, but also about other people. People have disappointed me this week, but it is never the end of the world. I guess, once you start to know a person too much, you end up not liking what you see...

I have to go zzz now...it is almost 2am. Damn. Only 4 hours of sleep. But I have to share this new song that I am absolutely loving right now. It ain't my usual cup of style, as I am not much interested in the underground hip-hop rap music kind of thing. The reason I got to know this song is thanks to one of the rappers, Jay Park but more popularly known to me as Jaebeom, ex-member of 2PM, my favourite K-pop boyband =)

Give it a listen. I am absolutely fawning over the cool lyrics.

"CLOUDS by Dumbfounded ft. Jay Park & Clara Chung"

Roll, roll back the clouds
Let the sun shine through

There's light at the end of the tunnel
I haven't seen it
Not all of us become rockstars and ballerinas
Even in California the sun ain't always beaming
Can't predict the forecast for all four seasons
We have dark days
Can't make your car payments
Workin a whackass job living in mom's basement
Some lands never get rain so there's starvation
Some only see snow through neighborhoods scarred faces
Not everything is set in stone
The weather changes
It's like god that the devil's trying to entertain us
Walked in the treacherous storm and overcame it
It is never an easy path on the road to greatness
So don't you give me that boo hoo hoo shit
We're moving on to that new new new shit
Look up into the clouds and watch it blow away
Until my problems just go away

When the clouds are in the sky
Know that they're just passing by
There'll be sunshine
If your days are stormy nights
Dry the raindrops from your eyes
There'll be sunshine

Everybody works hard for their goals to achieve
But like the ocean is sea, man, the motion is free
So nothing ever adds up the way we want it to
I guess my math teacher was just a substitute
Everybody hits a rough patch turbulence in the sky
Life's a cow I made a burger
And I'm serving it with some fries
Gotta make do with the cards that are dealt
And though it's hard as hell
I know that God will help
Cause although I live in Seattle
It's not always gonna rain
There'll be some sunny days coming up this way
Everybody's wanting to see me struggling
Running away from pain
But I know the wondrous things are coming to visit again someday
So no worries I just stand here with a smirk on my face
Although I know some people out there throwin dirt on my name
But it's all good
Still show em some love
Cause unlike that girl from the movie
I ain't holdin no grudge

When the clouds are in the sky
Know that they're just passing by
There'll be sunshine
If your days are stormy nights
Dry the raindrops from your eyes
There'll be sunshine

I've been a little lost
But I'm not colorblind
I'll follow that yellow brick road
And put my fears behind
And on that yellow road
I'll find a wishing well
Cast a line and in time I know I'll prevail
