I think Savannah Outen's version of Forever & Always might just be better than the original. (Have I said that before?) Sitting at sway-chick's dining table while sway chick and sway sim watch castaway (tom hanks) on TV, saying I must watch it with tissues because it's soo good.
went to the bazaar today, came back with a pair of pretty new flipflops that cost 300 baht (THE PRETTIER HAVIANNAS THAT I WANTED COST 1, 200 BAHT OR SOMETHING!! but they were sooo prettyyyy! white and gold with flowers and a wedgey heel!), an awesomely exotic bright pink shawl (if it came in green I swear it'd look just like the one in shopaholic, it was that material!!) also for 300 baht and this great set of staedhler (however you spell that dang german brand) fine markers. it's all these colours and it comes in a blue, soft leather case with a detachable pencil case! for 320 baht, I think. cos I thought the man said 380, but when I calculated my expenses and the change it didn't add up. hmm. 320's good lah (:
I'm bored ):
bazaar was fun, lol. sher and I were tricked into giving tester biscuits and offering them to everyone- mostly tired shoppers who put down bags to get a free snack and then walked off. but it was so great when we sold the last tin of biscuits and everybody cheered, much to the surprise of the person who bought the last tin. :D and then I slacked and listened to my iPod some, and then we ate at the food court (chicken rice at paragon food court = not so good) and went home where I turned on the a/c (it's damn hot here kay :( I miss deciembre and CHIANGMAI oh shit I might turn emo again, like I do whenever anyone mentions chiangmai in december or whatever) and read the last bit of my last issue of instyle.
I NEED MORE INSTYLE ISSUES PPL. I DON'T CARE IF THEY'RE OLD, THEY GIVE ME INSPARACION. (: which is inspiration if you can't read aloud.
and and, this is a list of things I 'need':
1200B haviannas :D (just kidding)
ten & co. tank tops, cos they fit me well, compared to the ones i bought at mbk
more ten & co. stuff, cos they all fit me well, esp. that colourful striped cardigan I wanted so much but couldn't buy cos I was already buying 3 items, which according to my mum is too much, even if the store's having a 30-70% off sale
sneakers. I've got my heart set on lime green ones. even if I havent seen any yet I know there's a 90% chance I'll find a pair (:
gladiator sandals- tho I'm trying to convince myself I'll make my calves look fat in them, after seeing some ppl wear them.
only celebrities look good in gladiator sandals.
a swwwaaatch waaatch (: nah, I love my babyg.
blue nail polish! or gold nail polish. I can't decide which one I'll look worse in. my nail polish collection consists pinks, one white and two transparents. most of my pinks are secretary pink. aka, the super-light ones, the kind you can't see chips in really well cos you cant see them really well. they look the most natural lah (:
I can't think of anything else, isn't that good? OH YEAH.
other cds i might love.
confessions of a shopaholic.
bags- like that totally awesome straw envelope clutch I saw at the bag lady's shop today at the bazaar but it was over a thousand baht! that shop was just plain awesome, why why why was it so expensive.
other stuff I might like but haven't met.

on a very random note, "_____, you ARE hot. deal with it." hahahaha. :)
was reading thomas's friend ange's blog. her poetry's awesome and I just laughed at this one:
"i want it to be a full A4 paper worth of words. if you use a font size 42 for the letter, my shoe size 9 will be on your face." "yeah Marcus wants to cross dress to see how many guys check him out." "hahahahahaha." "eh! i have the face of a babe and the body of a surfing hottie!!!"
just found out another cinderella story's based on a cinderella story. intereeeesting. ;D well I think a cinderella story had a better storyline and everything, but another cinderella story definitely wins songs-wise, hands-down.
this is definitely so true! it has like most of my ambitions there anyway.
Your Career Type: Artistic
You are expressive, original, and independent.
Your talents lie in your artistic abilities: creative writing, drama, crafts, music, or art.
You would make an excellent:
Actor - Art Teacher - Book Editor
Clothes Designer - Comedian - Composer
Dancer - DJ - Graphic Designer
Illustrator - Musician - Sculptor
The worst career options for your are conventional careers, like bank teller or secretary.
You know it and I know it We both know it's over No point putting icing on the cake Pretending it's not rotten I saw you and you heard me We know it's not meant to be When it's over it's over.
I know it doesn't rhyme much, but ... but nothing. :X haha. Updated art blog! Go check. it. out. (Today saw this HS girl wearing a red shirt saying: CZECH ME OUT. LOL creative! also loved rylee and kaumudi's shirts: without me you're just aweso.)
you're bringing back the real me
I feel so stupid, that song I liked was new classic. The acoustic version is quite nice, just that it doesn't have the catchiness of the original version's chorus (in fact, it has slightly diff. lyrics, I think- it definitely doesn't have the you're the new classic, you're the new PYT part).
Am going to make some selena gomez icons. Hope I've got this thing back on and that I don't still have my anti-icons-midas-touch.
you walkin' by
"You know it and I know it, we don't need to keep adding icing to pretend it's all nice."
Sr. E says the funniest stuff! :D Like, he uses totally cool metaphors, and says, "Poetry" and grins at us. LOL! There was another one that I laughed my butt off to but forgot it. Weird.
I'm addicted to the Another Cinderella Story soundtrack! I really love Selena Gomez, she's not stick-thin like a lot of Disney actresses, she can sing reasonably well and she's got this sweet girl-next-door look. Listen to Bang A Drum here, it's such a great song.
You walkin' by and I trip on the furniture
Hurry Up and Save Me
Tell Me Something I Don't Know
This other song that Drew sings, the one that begins with it's become so hard/for me to be surprised. I need to find out which song it is! it's so nice!

heh, I'm not doing a profile (: I majorly link-spammed. the links look horrible with all that red. ): this is why blogskins always tend to look nicer in previews. BLOGSKINS IS LAGGING. MYYYYYYYYLEEEEES!!!!
baby back up
I am going to change my skin. vg/Baby Back Up took me ages to code and thank goodness it's 99% worth it. will provide all you fans (hahahaha) with the link soon. MY TAGBOARD IS DEAD, ISN'T YOUR CRUEL HEART MELTING WITH PITY??
I won't humiliate taylor by posting this on my art blog. I just loved the spontaniety of the picture and was dying to try a gradient out (; And I found out who Stephen in Hey Stephen is. Forgot the link, it's on Yahoo's OMG. Go search 'Taylor Swift'. Admittedly, he's kind of cute ;D
you know you want to (: the commentary may sometimes be wrong but it's overall funny (and a great site for pics, even if I'll probably only ever use the faces. some of the outfits are like, WHAT WERE THEY THINKING???)

Anyway, I've been working on a modern-Jane-Eyre-idea of an aspiring author who goes to an organic farm far far away from the city to tutor the daughter of a single woman who works there. Her name is Nora Kensington and the story's written from her perspective.
CHAPTER ONE Her square-toed boots (red, with fringe) hit the pavement as she exited the shop, her face pink with excitement, several fresh bags dangling from her fingertips. The black chiffon skirt she had on fluttered in the breeze, and- OH, FORGET IT. That settles it: I am officially unable to write without mentioning an outfit. I knew I should’ve taken something like, oh, I don’t know, fashion design, instead of literature. I knew I’d be much more of a high-flier, like my stupid lawyer older brother (who cares about law, anyway?), if I was the next Karl Lagerfeld, instead of the next J.K. Rowling. (I don’t even know enough Latin to make up spells.) “Are you really sure about this, Nora dear?” my mother asks, fluttering nervously near my shoulder as I slit an envelope neatly with a letter-opener. A letter falls out: pink writing paper, neatly folded into a square. There’s only one person in the universe who writes on this, and there’s no way I’m going to read this letter now with my mother in such close proximity. “I mean, you’re only…” “Twenty-four,” I say. I’ve heard this about a million times in a day. My mother thinks that if she can repeat my age often enough, I’m going to be convinced that I’m not fully matured yet and any major decision I make is going to turn out as a gigantic fluke the size of Antarctica (how big is it again?). Well, considering how I decided to take literature instead of fashion design… I have to be right about this, I have to.
my work uses a lot more italics but when you copy and paste blogger doesn't take note of italics and such, so don't mind me :D
I want to create a real mod-look blogskin right now but my brains are peeling, it's time for dinner and I'm frustrated.
anyway, randomly created an image, cos I found this awesome site from outspoken-kate, which, I've decided, is my saviour because it has all kinds of kooky awesome links which you've never heard of but can be totally awesome. that link above, it's from yahoo and it automatically creates colour schemes for you when you type in a keyword, like 'retro' or 'sunset'! ain't that cool :D
GTG for dinner :D back up, baby back up, did you forget everything I wanna write :O yes, I am in a writing mood again. shall quickly post excerpt. tell me what you think. AND TAG because don't think I didn't notice it, you've all been avoiding my tagboard lately.
I love book sales. For our Grade 7 Confirmation charity thing, we held a used book/magazine sale for 50B each (that's really cheap for most, S$2.50ish, but if you're getting like Total Girl that's expensive I guess) and I LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT (:
Cos last time I got Me & Mr Darcy and Can You Keep A Secret? M&MD was going for 350B at Asia Books, which is almost twenty bucks. And I got it for two fifty! :D
Bigger bargain today: 3 InStyles (inc. one big fat issue, cos every now and then they have big fat issues) for 150B!! when usually 3 InStyles would cost over 1000B!! I lurrrve book sales so :D
I am editing my wishlist to include Teen Vogue & InStyle (: cos I love them so. esp. InStyle.
and and and what was I going to say. oh yes, I love TEN & CO. in MBK cos they're having a clearance sale, 30-70% off! got this really comfy pair of black jeans cos I gave my last pair away today (they were really tight and hard to walk around in), plus a stripey shirt for alternate dress day (: twins day! and an awesome green shirt with multicoloured stars, and a blue tank top. all for about 2000 baht, which is 100S$ but considering the original prices of what I bought, is pretty good (:
and had a tough time in the fitting room, I was so freaked. the dress I was trying out had a zip to help you get in and out of it and it stuck. so I pretty much couldn't get out of the dress at all. until I just heaved at the zip and it went pwwoooh all the way down and I was like PHEW.
anyway, am going to make a simple skin (navy, yellow, light grey, white, black) based on one of InStyle's colour palettes (so awesome, they had a few pages of suggested colour palettes for summer w/the outfits, and who knew pink + green were so cute together?)

as my mother so aptly reminded me, I need to catch up on my homework fast because we're going to be uber busy this weekend: JOSEPH TEO is arriving in bangkok! *round of applause* *for the clueless, joseph teo is my cousin, born jan this year :D and if you didn't know, where've you been, living under a rock? O: okay, so homework check:
READ CHICK LIT THAT SHER LENT :D okay, that's not homework ):
Science Atmosphere Worksheets Pg 1-4, Monday
Scholastic order form, Monday
Spanish Translation worksheet, Monday
Maths 8-7, Tuesday
Humanities Ch 4 Pg 9 Ex, Tuesday
Maths 8-8, Wednesday
It's the end of Feb next week, can you believe it? We're well and truly into 2009! :D
Just uploaded over 20 new icons to The Art Collaboration... check it out! Click on img to access site.
I'm so bored, I'm making random banners for the art blog (: okay, only ended up making one. I still prefer the original one. GTG; going to uncle stanley and uncle eric's goodbye dinner ):
wow, 10 posts in a day. at this rate, in about a week I'll be ready to move to another blog XD
took pingghee's personality test as posted on her LJ (going to LJ makes me feel sad, lol; the danceinastorm members are so pro and I still havent figured -or bothered figuring- out LJ.)
"When you are in love, you easily outperform all other personality types in terms of enthusiasm and panache. Then your commitment knows no limits. You go out of your way in your eagerness to express your affection, and in your happiness, you are ready to embrace the entire world. When watching your attempts to flirt, one can’t help but think about a puppy dancing happily around its new playmate. Then for you simply nothing exists but your newfound love. „Hold your horses!“ - “Discretion is the better part of valor!” - “All that glitters is not gold!” - these worldly wisdoms are nothing but a waste of time."
two skins yet again
cheater's guide? the two skins' codes are awfully similar.
I have listened to hey stephen and love story 36 times each!! lol. and the man who can't be moved is at the bottom of my top 25, at 11. what a big gap. I suppose it doesn't help that I keep playing my taylor swift playlist to the point where I can memorise most of her songs. taylor swift is awesomeness ♥!
tag replies: jlee: I already tagged! you must post more, person. cy: hehe javelin! I managed to throw further yesterday but after olympics I think we'll be doing t&f, nuuu, I miss javelin already ): jiayou on the homework front!
sixtysix more posts and I'll have reached the point where I abandoned my previous blog. (:
FYI, I abandoned my previous blog at 237 posts, and sweetintoxicated's at 171 O.O bus number! haha that seems so long ago, waiting for the blasted 171 which takes forever to come most of the time.
love this song Fifteen by taylor swift, it's gonna be me in september! (no, I won't even be fourteen by then, but I'll be in HIGH SCHOOL! can you believe it? me, in high school? blue shirts and senior boys! okay, that last part was for mita's benefit. more later.)
It's your freshman year and you're gonna be here For the next four years in this town Hoping one of those senior boys will wink at you and say "You know, I haven't seen you around before"
'Cause when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you You're gonna believe them And when you're fifteen feeling like there's nothing to figure out Well, count to ten, take it in This is life before you know who you're gonna be Fifteen
You sit in class next to a redhead named Abigail And soon enough you're best friends Laughing at the other girls who think they're so cool We'll be outta here as soon as we can
And then you're on your very first date and he's got a car And you're feeling like flying And you're momma's waiting up and you're thinking he's the one And you're dancing 'round your room when the night ends When the night ends
'Cause when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you You're gonna believe them When you're fifteen and your first kiss Makes your head spin 'round But in your life you'll do things greater than Dating the boy on the football team But I didn't know it at fifteen
When all you wanted was to be wanted Wish you could go back and tell yourself what you know now
Back then I swore I was gonna marry him someday But I realized some bigger dreams of mine And Abigail gave everything she had to a boy Who changed his mind and we both cried
'Cause when you're fifteen and somebody tells you they love you You're gonna believe them And when you're fifteen, don't forget to look before you fall I've found time can heal most anything And you just might find who you're supposed to be I didn't know who I was supposed to be at fifteen
Your very first day Take a deep breath girl Take a deep breath as you walk through the doors
-- Anyway, yesterday at olympic practice I found out that white guy was leandra's brother! big gasp shock. anyway turns out mita ALREADY KNEW. -.O I was talking to dajung, and saying, oh that's the guy who taught us PE, mita thinks he's cute. dajung: he's leandra's brother, right? me: shit really?? (cos they were talking to each other, and it's never occurred to me before that they look like peas in a pod. leandra's really pretty.) dajung: yes. he's kind of... cute. *laugh* dajung's so cute :D and after sch I caught up with mita, and she was musing, it was love at first sight for me and him! and the next thing I know she's musing about toaster. (code.) and I'm like, *cough* love at *cough* first sight *cough*? mita: *laughlaughlaugh* oh well. I cannot wait till high school. being with mita is going to be HILARIOUS. (:

NEW ART BLOG
hello hello hello click here you know you want to! it's my new art blog, a collaboration with sherilyn (:
Tuesday, February 17, 2009
I am really really bored right now. I am really really bored right now. I am really really bored right now. I am really really bored right now. I am really really bored right now. you know what, that looks really pretty. ANYWAY. um um um okay I shall update you on today!
17.02.2009 is a Tuesday. okay whatever. I'm so bored!!
mathsscience 87 for recommendation project. was expecting an F or something so yay! (cos, you see, I srsly rushed that project. in like 4 hours. the day before it was due. :X *embarrassed expression*) um um around 81.9% or something for 8-4. which is good. MY MATHS IS DYING AND SO IS MY SCIENCE, I need to work harder! if I want to get good grades! cos my science is still a B, and my maths is gonna be a B soon if I don't try harder. I haven't gotten over 90 in aeons, I think. I don't know. powerschool is dusty now (:
yearbookhealthsynergy yearbook was okayyy. found out two of pics were pixellated -HOW WELL I KNOW THAT PROBLEM- so had to redo some stuff, then other than that I'm done so IDK what I'll be doing next ): mari's doing front cover! (oh well you cant be expecting to do both covers can you.) I cant wait till yearbook comes out I'm going to hyperventilate and circle all the pages I did in black marker. LOL. just kidding. so far I've done... operation smile celebrity lookalikes sports collage tennis back cover so that's about 10. almost I think. cos celebrity lookalikes is... 4 or 6, I can't remember. looking at them again now I think they're so messy but whatev, if ms ulster likes it I've run out of ideas (: haha. back cover!! but I think the greatest achievement is the front cover ad. I don't know where mine will be but we'll have 6 little mini-magazine-spoofs and mine's InStyle! or rather, InSchool Special ISB Edition. it was really fun and I was honoured to do it. cos InStyle is my alltime fave magazine.
which reminds me. I NEED TO ADD INSTYLE + TEEN VOGUE TO MY WISHLIST (:
then synergy we had shortened study time where I LISTENED TO TAYLOR SWIFT! haha thank you mr g for letting my use my iPod. then we went to the pool to watch the biathlon! then mita saw that supernice "orange guy" who taught us javelin yesterday. I told joanne she has to steal her brother's HS yearbook so we can see who he is ): haha.
pespanish pe was so fun lah! I can't believe it (: did javelin, and that "white guy" was there (BTW: nothing racist. he was wearing a white shirt XD), the one that mita obsesses about (LOL). he doesn't say much but he did ask us if we needed help and I said no cos we're so hopeless (didn't say why out loud). or rather I am. joanne's pretty good and tata is BETTER THAN ME AAAAH I am so bad at this. :X then we wanted softball and orange guy said no one there but you can do it yourself just be careful, but then we decided to do high jump instead so this guy in an ISB shirt who'd been slacking around came over to help us. it was so funny, we were adjusting the high jump thingy and I was helping. so to adjust you have to turn this knob to let the stand thingy drop. so I turned turned turned and the stand just went BANG BANG BANG to the ground, and I screamed and went SHIT!! and then the guy was like laughing his butt off cos he'd already adjusted his side. embarrassing but I did it like thrice cos I have no idea how to adjust the damn thing. then anyway orange guy came to help us once but then he was talking to the other guy and knocked the pole over. and then the other guy was like, whatchoo touch that for? and the orange guy was like, shut up. then he told us he'd better get back to discus and ran off. (only two people in discus. and three of us in high jump. everyone else was doing long jump. weird.)
joanne didnt do cos she wasnt feeling well so tata and I were slacking around trying it. I hit the pole on my last try. grah. I hate rubbing against the mat. it hurts like crazy. but it is nice to bounce after you land (: OH MAN I'M HYPER
so anyway after pe we were all hyper and I was like talking to all the guys who were helping us. which is something I do when I get really high. then tata was like, I FEEL GOOD! SO GOOD! I GOT YOU YOU YOU! and we were laughing OUR butts off. being high is randomly fun (:
spanish, sr e was sick again ): so we had to do a worksheet, a word search with TYPOS and a crossword. then free time! i was drawing, thus the fashion design convo in prv post. then we were dismissed early i think! and i listened to music all the way home. which is a bad idea cos I got so damn bored. I need to bring a book next time. even if it ruins my eyes it's more entertaining to read on the bus going home. or I can bring my laptop LOL.
okay okay super long post! daddy's coming home late tonight ): from chiangmai the lucky person! I WANNA GO BACK TO CHIANGMAI, panya panya panya.
http://blogskins.com/info/247080/ lalalalalala I love my new skin (: anyway what was I going to say? oh yes, I love it cos it's really diff. from the original pic. I managed to move hugh and isla closer together without affecting the bg! isn't that awesome? if you saw the draft you'd laugh cos there were two islas and hugh's hands were chopped off. XD if I'm hardworking I'd do 8-6 and lab report for thursday but I'm really really lazy and I wanna do zooey deschanel/confessions of a shopaholic icons. (yes, confessions is my ALLTIMEFAVOURITEMOVIE.) or I can do a list. like:
TOP ACTORS. I'm just doing this to promote HUGH DANCY! and ORLANDO BLOOM!
TOP ACTRESSES. none, actually. they're all so pro it's hard to choose.
mindy: you should be a fashion designer, I'd buy all your clothes. me: haha so I'll make them damn expensive and become rich! mindy: you're so mean! joanne: you should have a discount for friends. me: yeah if you're from ISB Grade 8 '09 you'll get a discount.
TOP WANTS twilight cd shopaholic cd but that's impossible fearless cd- B2S DOESNT HAVE IT! and b2s is like the biggest place in bkk that I know of to get cds ): they didnt even have any cds for 'country'. they had all the other genres ):
Monday, February 16, 2009
I just realized that tho the last post is called quote of the day I didn't put any quote, so here:
"I'm innocent. As much as that sounds like an oxymoron... it's true!"
Slip of the tongue to my mum, who laughed. -.O oh well.
I LOVE CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC! okay gtg for dindins (: BTH. thanks chingying.
quote of the day
okay, I just wasted like twenty minutes checking my email when what I really wanted to do was make more shopaholic icons (LOL- hugh dancy and isla fisher are just the perfect couple! better than anne hathaway and hugh in ella enchanted) and edit my shopaholic skin to put it here. OFF TO WORK! homework left: one question of 8-5 SA bklt lab report MY TUITION HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO FRIDAY ): okay, I'm happy cos it's not in TWO DAYS but friday is my me time! D:
Sunday, February 15, 2009
HOMEWORK LEFT 8-4 due Tuesday. STARTED 8-5 due Wednesday. STARTED Lab report due Thursday. NOT STARTED!! 8-1 redo: not worth doing. if I did the redo I'd only get 1% more anyway.
SHERILYN: I. Want. Your. Books. So. Bad.
can you believe it? sherilyn and I are currently exchanging lists of the chick lit books we have so we can exchange XD
to my surprise, I have 12 chick lit books (or at least, chick lit for me). I thought I'd have two. (well I had two for about three years until this year and my mum and I agreed that I could buy them ON THE CONDITION THAT I paid for them myself. Oh well.)
right now I want to experiment more with images on photoshop, and I might change my blogskin for this blog to the shopaholic one edited (cos I didnt really like the final result).
coming up: a VERY VERY BRIGHT (I've decided to please myself and not the skinners on BS.com) skin!! blue and pink (:
Hey Stephen, I know looks can be deceivin' But I know I saw a light in you And as we walked we were talking I didn't say half the things I wanted to Of all the girls tossing rocks at your window I'll be the one waiting there even when it's cold Hey Stephen, boy you might have me believin' I don't always have to be alone

because that kiss
no time to make blogskin :O lyrics from tiffany alvord's that kiss.
a brilliant collage of two images and three brushes, can you tell? :X
cos I didn't realize I loved you
AM GOING TO EXPERIMENT WITH DEVIANTART PICTURES! okay, I'm random. goodbye. CHECK OUT LATEST STUFF AT ART BLOG KTHXBYE
didn't think didn't know
'cos I didn't think, didn't know I had to cherish you Didn't think, didn't know we had so little time left.
Okay, whatever, that was a random songish thingy I just typed on the spot. I seem to be into writing lyrics nowadays.
I've decided to compile my list of all-time favourites from Meg Cabot. Sherilyn- take your pick! Tell me which ones you've bought :D
Listed (in order): Titles & Genres/Descriptions/Comments Titles & Genres:
THE MEDIATOR series. Supernatural.
VICTORIA AND THE ROGUE. Historical fict.
AVALON HIGH. Myth (?).
QUEEN OF BABBLE. Realistic fict.
HEATHER WELLS MYSTERY series. Mystery.
Suze Simons is a girl who can see and talk to ghosts. When she moves to the town Carmel after her mum remarrying, she meets Jesse, a hot ghost who lives in her bedroom. The series follows her as she encounters different ghosts and solves the mysteries of their deaths.
Lady Victoria is a young girl who's just arrived in England after spending much of her childhood with uncles in India. She's bold, feisty and engaged to an Earl she met aboard the ship. However, throughout her stay in England, the ship's handsome but irritating captain keeps trying to convince her that the Earl is not what he seems.
Avalon High is a realistic fiction book based on the myth of King Arthur. Characters seem to be reincarnated from the myth. Ellie, daughter of two history professors, seems to notice this quickly enough, but can she stop the trouble that's brewing up in Avalon High (her school)? (The presence of good, popular AND handsome Will doesn't seem to help.)
Lizzie is a girl who can't keep her mouth shut. In fact, her babbling lands her in trouble with her financially-troubled boyfriend, and is the reason why she is on a train to France, ready to spend the rest of her holiday with her friend at a mansion there. She spills her secrets to a stranger who's kind and understanding... and then finds out he's the owner of the mansion she's going to.
Heather Wells is a former pop star who retired from the business when her manager (and boyfriend's father) laughed at her idea of writing all her own songs. She has since grown increasingly plumper and lives in semi-obscurity with her boyfriend's brother, Cooper, the black sheep of the family. The trilogy (Size 12 Is Not Fat, Size 14 Is Not Fat Either, Size Doesn't Matter) follows her as she solves death after mysterious death in the dorm she works at.
Jesse. Is. Awesome. Enough said. Not gory enough that you'd get nightmares, so should be safe to read at night. I have books 4 and 6 if you want to borrow them. (There are 6 books in the series.)
The captain is just plain awesome too. Rather interesting read considering you'd think Meg would write chic lit better than historical fiction. I don't have this book (I borrowed it from the library). Another historical fiction I'm planning to check out is Nicola and the Viscount.
I LOVE THIS. Its sequel, a manga, was recently released but I haven't checked it out yet. I have it if you want to borrow. Its plot is actually really good and it's not so cheesy-romantic.
Very interesting- the mansion's owner Luke is sweet! I'm planning to buy the sequel Queen of Babble Gets Hitched. Warning: at the end of the book there's a PG scene but it's not too explicit. (I don't have this book.)
Very, very awesome. The solutions to the mysteries aren't obvious. While it isn't Agatha Christie-mystery-awesome, the series still makes for good reads. I have books 2 and 3 in the trilogy if you want to borrow.
There! I need to make my bed now.
Is it such a crime if I can't hear you 'cos I'm listening to music?
Whistle blows and tons of steel Shake the ground beneath the wheels As I wish I never found you
How can I be smiling when you're gone Will I be strong enough to carry on
Say it isn't so Tell me you're not leaving Say you changed your mind now That I am only dreaming That this is not goodbye
Drew talks to me I laugh 'cause it's just so funny I can't even see Anyone when he's with me
So I drive home alone As I turn out the light I'll put his picture down And maybe get some sleep tonight
'Cuz he's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar The only one who's got enough of me to break my heart He's the song in the car I keep singing Don't know why I do
I'm back from Chiangmai! Did you miss me? :D
Bet you didn't. As Sandra so aptly points out, my blog is dead, people, DEAD, and thanks a lot. Anyway, visit www.panyaproject.org because Panya is an awesome eco-village we stayed at for Green Day Tour! I ♥ it!
And I am also seriously considering pulling my parents there the next chance we get. CHIANGMAI CHIANGMAI CHIANGMAI! Oh dear I miss it so ):

greetings from ISB main library ;D I'm going to chiangggggggggmaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii in one and a half hours' time! to take care of elephants, no less, and build mud houses or something, I don't know. grah. my science grade hasn't even touched A yet. there is NO WAY I'm getting high honour roll this semester. KEEP WORKING GRACE! for yearbook, we're doing this really cool magazine layout idea, so for the cover we have 6 spoofs of magazine covers. I did InStyle (InSchool- who knew instyle font could be so hard to replicate? I couldn't find any that looked remotely like it, so I bolded century gothic and stretched it) in like, ten minutes (it was so easy! lots of text and one image! plus, if you know blogskinning, graphic design is easy-o; dafont helped me do the barcode and make the whole thing look nicer) so ms ulster said I should be a graphic designer one day (hmmm. possible!) and showed EVERYONE my work (so embarrassing, considering I'm like a don't-put-me-in-the-spotlight person). and then she asked me if I had any ideas for the back of the yearbook, so I said since magazines have ads at the back we should have one. so now my task is to look at ads of hotels and replicate it too for ISB, maybe with mr straub and mr bt on it, ms ulster said. grah. I was thinking something more like clothes. cos hotel ads are... not as artistic, I think. no offense. maybe I should go have a good look at google search 'hotel ads'. let's see. http://images.google.com/images?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4GGIE_enTH293TH293&q=hotel+ads Looks like I'll do the pic of the front of ISB and dress it up on photoshop. then like add mr bt and mr straub in saying smth advertisementy. OH GOSH THIS IS TOUGHTOUGHTOUCH-what. cant wait for the train!! reading + drawing + stuffing faces with food (lol) + ZZZ
just a dream
Carrie Underwood's Just A Dream official video nearly made me cry! (Then again, I always nearly cry when I hear it; seeing it in visual just made me all the more sadder.)
Now listening to So Small. I love Carrie Underwood! :D Packing for Chiangmai (on-off-ly) now. Gosh, I hate packing for school trips cos it just seems like so much. Then the next day everyone turns up with teeny weeny bags and you're like, what?
Going to make some icons or something, cos my mum can't find the tiny cute shampoo and soap we save for trips, so I'm waiting for her. Everything else is splayed out on my bed. Really, splayed.
I GOT HIGH HONOUR ROLL! I GOT HIGH HONOUR ROLL! I GOT HIGH HONOUR ROLL! OK, I'd better go off editing my wishlist. :D
I Wanted To Say
Finished Size 14 Is Not Fat Either! It's awesome, except Cooper is a big, stupid, good-looker. Poor Heather.
Managed to get like 6 books yesterday at Asia Books, 'cos they were having a 3 For 2 sale for some, and we also had some vouchers to use for the rest that weren't on sale. Stupid thing was, the vouchers expired yesterday so there was this super-long queue of people all wanting to spend their vouchers (and give them away- we had two offers).
So I bought Size 14; Size Doesn't Matter (HEATHER MUST MARRY COOPER!); Shopaholic & Baby; The Ninth Gem (or stone, or something, I'm not sure); Number Four (or something like that; a very chim-looking chinese-history autobiography my mum pressed upon me) and. and. Something else. Oh yes! this fantasy book about a girl who ventures into a wild forest full of fairytale creatures gone wrong.
Anyway, I actually logged on to post this awesome video. I am proud to present you with Tiffany Alvord, whose videos I stumbled upon (literally; like Savannah Outen and Marie Digby and Miaarose and Esmee Denters and all those other awesome YouTube singers) randomly one day! I love her original songs That Kiss and I Wanted to Say. I'm gonna post the latter's video and lyrics here:
I am a self-confessed shopaholic who's obsessed with Broadway and Photoshop. My laptop, iPod and vast collection of books are probably my best friends, along with my awesome set of markers, countless notebooks, and of course, those humans I like to talk to. I'm going to post a little wishlist below this, and if you're a kind soul you'll peruse and grant some wishes.
A (cropped?) blazer of black material or dark blue denim.
