I didn’t realize just how much practicality there was in writing my extended essay on William Blake’s Songs of Innocence and Experience. It wasn’t until I encountered my own problems and using a more objective observation were all the parallels revealed to me. As a kid, we grow up in a sheltered world that our parents provide and try to live the life that they guide us through. Lyca, from The Little Girl Lost, wants to all asleep around a lion which, according to the parents, is malicious and will eat her alive. But Lyca shows how sometimes we should just rely on our instincts and trust what we believe and rather what our parents say. Her parents asks how she can even sleep if she is in danger.

It wasn’t until yesterday in English class, when I borrowed Natasha’s ipod, did I realize just how much I missed old school pop music. Strangely, she had loaded up lots of backstreet boys music. Apparently, backstreet boys already have a new album out. This just shows how little I’ve followed up on them and the rest of those boy bands I used to sing to as a ‘little girl”. Back in the day when everyone was crazy about Spice Girls, Backstreeet Boys, O’Town, N’Sync, Wave, Sugar Jones, and etc. Feeling nostalgic and what not, I dug up some of those music in my hard drive and started watching music videos of them on youtube. I must say, I miss some of those bands. All thanks to Natasha I’ll probably indulging myself in some old school music for the next few weeks. Continue reading

Currently catching up chemical equilibrium readings and homework since I pretty much died according to everyone at school for almost a good week. It’s funny how that everyone’s first reaction when they see me in the halls now is “OMGOSH, you’re at school!” The interesting thing, according to one of my friend, is that teachers still like me even though they never see me in their classes. Every year I always have this phase where I’m just so bored of everything but magically turns better right after. I’d assume these past two months has been like that and now slowly climbing out of this little hole of mine. Now I really need to make sure I have some decent predicted marks for University or be prepared to face my mother’s wrath. Continue reading

My forearms are absolutely tense from drumming. That’s what I get for not going to practice and indulging myself in homework that I end up not wanting to do. It was an interesting experience to teach Ted to do cymbals but feeling kind of guilty for being in a bad mood, hence, semi-yelled at him. (insert #sad emoticon) The performance turned out okay, I didn’t really expect much since everyone just kind of learned everything literally last minute. My mom ruined my plans to spend some quality time walking around with Ted at pacific mall, which put in a bad mood for the rest of the day. But luckily, I have something else to look forward to as a trade to not be mad anymore. “Yes, Ted. I do crazy things when I’m in love” (I still love that Wal-Mart shopping cart incident) Now I can happily daydream about my date with him on Friday. No no, it’s not like those girls in the dramas I swear.

If you still don’t get Einstein’s ideas, try this explanation reportedly from The Man Himself: “Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.”
