Since I've been neglecting this journal for quite a while now, I've moved on to
cinnabonme 
for a fresh start. I hope I'll be able to treat it right too. =P

Thanks everyone for being my buddies (although I've been terribly absent, and I've got no good excuse -_-). I'll understand if you don't want to know me anymore, but if you do then COMMENT. It would be great to keep you guys. Thanks so much~

It's 11.18pm right now and what better way to conclude the wonderful year of 2009 than with fic? I was bored with being stuck at home so I asked agentlerain for a prompt; my first drabble ever. I don't why I hesitated writing them because they've ended up being so fun! :D

Read more...Collapse )
This year has been great. and so eventful compared to the last ones. I can only expect that 2010 will live up to its expectations :D. I hope that I'll be able to write more fic, read more books, play more games, watch more animes, cook more meals, make more friends and make my life even better. :3

Btw, did you guys celebrate today? My family feasted on crabs and clams and I discovered that I am not one for clams :S. I'm still pondering my New Years Resolution; is it bad luck if we share them?  

Once again Happy New Year; welcome to 2010 everyone! =)

This is an old fic that I had finished for a while now, so I thought that I'd post it up here. I'm not much of a writer really, and this particular story I've been working on for a year I think, so my original ideas may have been lost among the tons of editing. It's not complete, and when I finally finish the final scene of the second part I'll post it here too.  Warning: This fic ended up a bit longer than anticipated.  :)

By the way, how's everyone on LJ been? It feels like I've been away so long even though it hasn't been a month yet. I missed you guys.  :)

Title: Dreamer
Fandom: Final Fantasy VIII
Pairing: Squall/Rinoa
Genre: Romance, Angst
Disclaimer: I don't own FFVIII, and I used several direct quotes from the game script.
Summary: He was afraid to ponder further, cautious that what he was to imagine would be the truth. For if this foreign land wasn' the home he'd held onto so dearly, then simply he was in the wrong place. In the wrong era, in the wrong lifetime, in the wrong time.

Its been a while hasn't it? Well I'm glad to say that I've made a full recovery since my last post and that no one else in the family has got the bug either. My two best friends who got the gastro virus after me (but not from me) have all recovered too so it looks like the sickness season has finally left us.

The beginning of June has been cold but I'm looking forward to these things: baking special chocolate cookies and other goodies for agentlerain 's upcoming birthday, choosing my year 11 classes and Supanova near the end of this month.  :)

I have no idea of what courses I'll take, and now that I think about them there aren't too many that I'd like out of 50. Also this week I have a tournament coming up; I reckon I'm only half prepared for it. I'll try the singles but I doubt I'll get into the semi-finals, mainly its the doubles and mixed that I'm concerned about.

I've finally chosen a cosplay outfit for Supanova and I'm excited that I'll be the one making it (with mother's help, of course). The character is Dagger from Final Fantasy IX, aka. the girl in my icon. I've long loved that game despite it being quite old now, and I've always wanted to cosplay one of its characters. I wasn't sure that I wanted to be wearing bright orange overalls everywhere, but I'm adding her white and red coat from the beginning of the game to cover it. Some of you may recognise this as the traditional white mage hood XD. I love the look of the coat and if it were done well I'd wear it everywhere~

Ugh, I've been sick since Saturday. The first night had me tossing and turning for hours in constant stomach pain and feeling waves of nausea and exhaustion. I did throw up eventually and the next day I felt slightly better but still very weak. The same went for Monday and so I didn't go to school from dizziness and overwhelming waves of exhaustion the moment I stood up from my bed. Yesterday I woke up with a gurgling stomach; most likely from eating only very small proportions of meals through the three days, but after eating a small slice of a roll I felt sick. I went to school but figured I couldn't contain the nausea and got sent home. There I slept like a log for many hours, getting up only to feel dizzy, nausea, exhaustion and a general terrible feeling when one is sick.

Today is much better than yesterday, but I can't say that I'll be okay tomorrow. I've got work to catch up on from being sick on assessment week, but I can't concentrate when looking at trigonometry equations and studying economics. I shouldn't even be on the computer but I can't help it. I haven't been able to eat anything properly without imagining it coming back out again. I'm sick of being sick.  :(

Yesterday I made 157 sugar cookies, originally meant to be a strawberry cake for me cousin's birthday, but yummy nonetheless~  I've been reading through Bakerella and such way too much nowadays ^^'.

I've been wanting some new music to listen to so I was wondering if my f-list could help me out a little? :D Don't worry, it'll be fun. Tell me all your favourite songs; I don't care if they're English or not, rock, pop, ballad or instrumental. I'm sure you all have great music taste, and I'm welcoming pretty much anything right now. Thanks~!

On my way back from school yesterday I decided to continue walking past my house and to the park nearby. What I realised from that walk is that there are parts of my memory that I've lost. Even now I cannot recall what happened in 2005 or 2004, when my family experienced a very bad time. It hurts my mind to try think about it because I've forgotten the details. I suppose its good that I don't remember the pain, but I want to know because its a part of me.

My rivercruise was on Wednesday and me and a friend went to our friend's house after school. The visit was fun but when we got to the docked boat we discovered that it was colder than we anticipated. And also that all the other girls there were wearing only tight shiny black dresses up to their butts. I felt sorry for them and it wasn't surprising that a number of them were absent the next day from a possible cold. The cruise itself was quite boring; too many people, too little space, too little air. I spent most of the time looking out at the view and photographing everyone else.

Do you like to plan everything out or do you prefer to be spontaneous?
I'd like to throw 'caution to the wind' and wake up each day without a plan, but I find that kind of lifestyle wouldn't last me very long. Even though being spontaneous is fun, I'll always return to my original schedule because its my default.

Its two days until the holidays, but it definitely doesn't seem like it at all. It felt as if I blinked and suddenly one school term was finished. My brain is still telling me it's third week.  :P I'm not even sure that I want to entertain the idea of year 11 course selections yet. Everything is moving so...fast.

I've been stressing about the Chinese song that I'm performing for the Multicultural Festival. I don't blame my friends though I really feel like it; they've never done singing performances before while I've had vocal lessons for about 5-6 years on and off. I guess it's just natural since we're in a group. I just wish that next time they were more organised  :). The performance is tomorrow, but I think everything's going to be fine now.

I've got a batch of icons, the first I've ever made, but I won't post them yet. They're made on PaintShop Pro so they aren't the best, but I've tried  :D.

This is a bit old but still worth it; there is a petition for a Final Fantasy IX Remake and since a lot of my f-list like FF so, why not. There's more information inside, and yes the numbers are low, but each vote is important so join in if you like the idea.

She was with us even after she left...Collapse )

Goodnight everyone. ;)

I think I've been browsing through bakebakebake way too much for my own good; I'm now completely convinced that I should bake a cake a day.  >.<  But for now I'm doing a collection of my past cooking experiences, good and bad. I've never really done that much cooking, even though I always say I want to, but now I really want to get into it. Its surprisingly really fun and fulfilling~

Going to a two-day tournament tomorrow. It's with the general group of people I always play with, so its not different. I'm finding it a bit hard to get motivated, but I know it'll be good practice for my doubles with Yvonne. Last week we were taught a new doubles format and we were struggling at first, but now we've kinda got the hang on it, by just. If we can manage that, we can really play well.   :)

I cannot get over this site; I'm sure quite a few have seen this but I'll put this up for an educational lesson: thisiswhyyourefat.com/ I swear it gets even worse when you read the ingredients list.... ugh.

At school there is going to be a Multicultural Festival on through Multicultural Week and somehow I got very much involved in it. Last year inspired me to be involved due to the interesting cultural performances (including a Japanese rock song :D). Now its ended up that half of my group is performing a dance to a popular Korean song and the rest of them, including me, will be performing a popular Chinese song.

Have I ever mentioned that I was asian? Well yes, I may be but I don't speak Chinese except for a few words here and there of my family's dialect.

I had to intensely study the words and how to say them, it gave me a headache  :( . I'm also not sure how I feel about performing this song in my bad Chinese among the 1700 people of my school; and also a large amount of them understanding the language....gulp. I haven't done singing performances for a while.  ^^'
