i just wanna understand what i am studying

Well yeah I am a nerd. I want to really understand what I'm studying. But my brain just refused to cooperate with me. The words are all a blur to me. Maybe I should put in more effort.

Wah, 2 posts in day. Joceline, you are on fire. What happened to letting the blog die, you may ask? I will just write ditzy stuff in here while in my heart and soul, therein lies my deepest thoughts. Exercise is very important but I am not getting enough of it. I know can do yourself like stretching and aerobics and all that. I used to do it everyday. Um, like 3 years ago. Now, I prefer sitting in front of the computer wasting my time away on whatever that holds my attention at that moment in time. This is not right! Also, I've since resumed cooking and oh my gosh, tried some recipes and those recipes aren't really healthy for the waist. Must get moving. Yes, that is my new year's resolution. Only one, that is, must exercise. Joining a gym here is so expensive. I don't know if I will have much free time in university later also. Senior told me that mini exams are abundant. For 3 years I've been spoiled rotten by Oyama teachers. Well, not really, my sotsuken teacher is a bit strict but then again, he is much much more lenient compared to university teachers. Just an assumption though.

If everything goes well, as in I am able to graduate from this college, yay, I will treat myself to a nice present.Muahsss...


Why are there so many zits on my forehead. Seriously, I've tried eating well, no sugar or dairy but I still get zits on the forehead. I wish I can achieve internal peace(is this even a real term??), or peace within your mind. Because I've been failing so far. Maybe that is why those zits pop up in the first place. The most annoying thing about them(the zits, duh) is that they are so small that you cannot pick on them(of course you should not pick on them-number one rule) but then again they are noticeable. Very annoying la. So far, major improvement after I incorporated more fruits into my diet. Ya, only I can say this la because I am highly sensitive to any blemishes on my face. But, honestly, holistic approach is the best one out there. Expensive skincare, forget about that, they don't do anything for me. Burn a hole in my wallet, that is the only thing they do.My obsession with skincare has led me to try the famous egg mask. Well you definitely can feel the skin tightening and it's just a quick fix but since it is all natural and cheap( just an egg will do!),I highly recommend this. There are many videos out there in youtube that teaches it, so, check it out.

Maybe i'm amazed

This gorgeous song written by former Beatle, Paul for his wife Linda has always been a favourite of mine. It has this edgy feel to it making it different from your standard schmaltzy love song. This has got to be one of my all time favourites. I am thinking of letting this blog die for a while. Lately, been writing a lot but saved it in the draft. What is the point then? Mostly, vanity posts but also some heavy emotional stuff that I prefer to keep close to my own heart.

The Beijing trip was a short but very memorable. I have a great companion with me and great food and I got to see the Great Wall of China with my own eyes and also climb it. It was very steep but the feeling on top(not the peak but still quite high up there) was indescribable. My hands were freezing but I don't think I can ever forget the mentally captured image in my head, ever.
The food was really yummy but I think I ate too much or I haven't eaten greasy food in a long time that I ended up with a stomach upset the next day. But it was worth it because it's so delicious!

the time traveler's wife

I read the novel before I watch the movie because when novels are being adapted to the big screen, you can be certain that the director, writers etc will tweak it a little bit or a lot so that the movie will appeal to the masses, or in other words, sell a lot of tickets. For me, the novel was very entertaining. I am a hopeless romantic and I love how the novel portrays a simple love story in a different light. It's slightly mushy but nevertheless, for an eternal romantic like me, it tastes like hot chocolate on a rainy day. Safe, warm, comfortable, and endorphin-inducing. The movie, well as almost all adaptations do, did try its best to be as true as possible to the book. I think it's sweet and for someone who read the novel beforehand, well, it's so much easier to pinpoint and savour each scene. I am not too sure what I would think of the movie if I did not read the novel. Maybe slightly unclear on some parts. They changed the ending too. Oh well, it still managed to make me shed a tear or two. Very melodramatic. Love makes the world go round, doesn't it? And when Hollywood churn out these kind of movies, where the lead male/hero appears to be sensitive to his girlfriend's feelings, caring and all around the perfect guy, it's almost unbelievable. And you start wishing for one yourself. But, of course, perfection only exists in the fantasy world. Oh, but a girl can wish, can't she?
