Elephant Appreciation Post 2011

It's been about two weeks since my last post, hi Blogger. I've been pretty busy which is great. Mainly with Interact and tuition. I remember at the start of the holidays I said I'd revise my Form Four syllabus over the holidays so I won't struggle next year, unsurprisingly that didn't turn out well. I still have about a week to catch up at least a little though. I haven't touched my History textbook since school ended.

I'll be a Form Five student in just over a week. I'm not ready. I'm looking forward to it, but I'm not prepared. I'll be in 5 Science Akasia (don't ask about the name change of the class...), and hey take a look at my classmates:

I will die. So much pressure, I don't know if I'll be able to handle it. I have Yassh and Aqila in my class though, which I'm really thankful for. :)

I have gained so much weight too, which I'm really bummed about because it's not like I wasn't heavy enough to begin with.

I know everyone's saying how the holidays are boring and whatnot but even though I stay at home on most days (if I leave the house it would be for classes and meetings), I'm still really enjoying the break from school. It's my last high school year-end holiday and I have had so much time for myself (which I also have been taking for granted). I know I won't get this kind of time next year. I'll be busy with Interact, PRS, SAEYLS, Blue house, handball, Ed Board... Pretty crazy huh? I hope I'll be able to cope well and not underperform in any of them.

SPM is in less than a year. SPM. SPM! Before I know it it'll be mid-November already and I'll be in the examination hall waiting to sit for the first paper. I'm already scared. Cakap je takut tapi bukannya nak belajar.

Hmm. You know how sometimes I'm like "Be thankful for what you have, you are blessed." but then two days later I complain about something I shouldn't be complaining about? Or be sad over something I shouldn't be so sad about? Like... feelings. Yeah, feelings. I'm very sure other people, most if not all, are the same. I hope I change in that aspect... because as much as people don't like being reminded of this, we are all blessed. Really, really blessed. What I've been so thankful for for the past two months is that I have a few friends that I can start a conversation with and tell them everything I feel and they always know what to say. Not to mention still having all my family members around. Like I said, blessed.

I'll be spending New Years with my family this year, just like I did last year. This time it'll be just the five of us at Grand Lexis, PD. I won't deny that at first I was pretty upset about it because I wanted to spend New Years here, but after what Jim and Mira told me about the hotel, and after I checked out the website myself, yeah I'm pretty excited. Maybe it'll be a good change. Sign of a good year to come, hopefully? :)

It's 8.45am now. Gotta make today productive. Adios!!!

'cause lately i've been tired

Hilman has HFM disease and Wan fractured her ankle when she fell down earlier this morning.
Qadri, Qaisara and Aunty Lynn have been sick for days (Qadri has it worse since he just recovered from HFM disease too) and Jaddi is currently at the hospital getting his blood pressure checked. He stopped taking his medicine (some? most?).

Worried about all of them, and it's very weird how all of this is happening at the same time.
Get well soon, family.

Assumption Soup Kitchen

I just got back from Assumption Family House. Volunteered there earlier this morning with Yassh, Mira, Marina, Amalina, Nad, Sasha and a few others. It was my first time! We didn't cook the food though, but we prepared everything and cleaned up after that. Then helped to pack the food. Rice, chicken curry and long beans. By the time we were done (about 300 packs! Super tiring) most of us already had to go home. Yassh, Sasha and I followed Ms Alice to deliver the food.

I'm not sure where we went but it was somewhere near Sunway (I think?) at the low-cost flat area. We helped distribute the packs to the people there. Realised how pretty damn lucky I really am. There was this man who had arms until just above where his elbows should be. He had hands that weren't fully formed. He took the food packs and said thank you, then walked off.

I know people have told me to be grateful before, but looking at those people.. all I can say is, I'm glad I went to deliver the food earlier and hopefully it won't be my last time.

Math, Science, History, unraveling the mysteries that all started with the Big Bang, BANG!

I couldn't even spell the simplest things when I was 6!
Going through my e-mail inbox now and I'm having a good time laughing at how retarded I was (still am no?) back then.

Hasya's at KYS now, she'll be back on Wednesday. She's there for the residence-based selection where they'll assess her social skills, sports skills and so on. Her interview's on Tuesday, and she has an exam today I think. Man, it's tough to get into KYS.

Every year the school receives about 6000 applications. Only 2000 will be called to sit for the first written test. From there, 200 will be selected to stay at the campus for 4D3N; this is the residence-based selection.

Usually they only choose 60 students, but for next year's batch they'll be choosing 80. From the 80, 30 students will be under the Axiata scholarship and the other 50 will be under fee-paying. From the 50, only 1/3 will be girls. So you see how tight the competition is for Hasya?

She's incredibly smart though. But even if she gets it but we can't find a scholarship for her, she won't be going, most probably. The non-refundable fees goes up to RM30, 000! I'm not sure whether that's until Form Three or only for this year but seriously? My school fees don't even go up to RM100! That's not even counting the refundable payments which all in all would cost up to RM100, 000. Oh yeah.

It's an amazing school though, and it's almost guaranteed that you graduate with straight As for both PMR and SPM. If Hasya doesn't go to KYS, she'll most probably go to Sri Aman. I hated the idea at first, but it seems alright now.

Why am I blogging so much about her anyway?


But I like this picture of the three of us + Mommy hehe.

Anyway, watched the Chelsea vs Liverpool match last night, it's been so long since I've watched football! (I didn't watch the Liverpool vs Swansea / England vs Spain since I was in London. Didn't even watch any SEA games!)

We played horribly during the 2nd half and I'm surprised we won the game in the end! Thank goodness for Glen Johnson. YNWA.

(I'm pointing out Torres and Meireles by the way, who both got subbed in at the same time!)

I know how other Kopites have long forgotten about Torres and Meireles, but I still kind of wished they were still in Liverpool. :(

We've got a game against Man City next week (hahahahaa.......) and 48 hours later, Chelsea AGAIN. Playing away AGAIN.

What is with our luck nowadays?

Recently I've either been blogging about football or something else that noone else finds interesting except me.

Oh! On the plane on the way back to KL, Hasya and I watched TBBT (Click!!! I could grow my own Leonard Nimoy!!!!!!!!!!).

And here's another one!

Funniest show ever! Hahaha it's been sometime since I've enjoyed watching a TV show so much. I'm like 5 years late though, but better that then never right?

So life has been pretty good. I've been reading too. Haven't read too many yet and so far there's been nothing that I've found really good. Just picking up chick flicks that I can find around the house and such.

And I've been somewhat busy as well! Which I really like. :)

I'll blog again soon! Hehe x
