I suddenly feel like blogging again. I probably won't but it's just a feeling. It's the final stretch of my Final Semester of my Final year in B. Arch, 3 more weeks till I have to submit my design thesis. I'm nowhere near done and I don't know if I will be come the 16th of May. In all honesty I should be working on it now but today has not been a good day.
I woke up late because last night I was up till quite late, trying to get a chapter written, and then my friend pinged me on gtalk and we talked about River and the Ponds and how complicated river's timeline is.

Didn't really help that I was woken up in the middle of the night by my mom asking me where my brother's overalls were. (?)
Woke up proper and found out our last kitten got hit by a car and had died.
That's probably why I don't feel like doing any work. My thesis is about animal welfare, but all our cats keep dying. Makes me feel like a phony.
In an attempt to make my life more interesting and to take my mind of Things, my weekends have been pretty packed as of late. Hanging out with friends, playing games, cooking, climbing up Tabur, white-water rafting, karaoke, concert-going and movie watching. It's been fun, but at the same time, once the weekends are over, I sink back into stress and depression. it's been getting slightly better but things happen and it triggers all the emo switches.

Pies are quite leceh to make but very delicious. In conjunction with Pi-day (March 14th) Kd, Muz, Nirman and I baked some pies. the Tomyam chicken pot pie was especially tasty. we also made banana-mango pie and lemon cheese pie. recipes were taken from various online sources and tweaked.
If you've never played rockband, I think you definitely should. it's a lot of fun and good for stamina and dexterity lol. I was terrible at drums but I think I did ok for a beginner on the bass..
Subuh on one weekend a bunch of friends and myself made our way up Bukit Tabur a.k.a the dinosaur in my backyard. this was my second time up and it was a lot of fun. It was great to be able to organize it and ajak my friends along too. Will definitely go again.

After the descent from Tabur, went for some eats then got home and popped right back out again to make my way to KL Central where me, Ilham, Aziza and Hannat drank obscenely priced coffee at the Hilton cafe and Ilham casually asked Nick Carter for a quick photo like he was our friend or something. Then we dashed off to KLCC for the Twin Towers Alive 2013 concert and to fulfill our adolescent dreams. BSB were A M A Z I N G obviously, but what really surprised me was the number of males in the audience. I'd have thought it would be full of screaming fangirls, but about half the crowd were guys.
Went white water rafting with Ilham and Nadiah in Slim River, Perak. It wasn't as challenging as I thought it'd be, and I came out of the 3 hour session not really tired. It was a whole bunch of fun though, would definitely recommend it although it's a bit pricey at rm180 per person..

after the last crit session Mye, Jedot, Mimi and myself drove off to Danau for some stress relief in karaoke. the place was super cheap but it was still ok. I didn't sing too much firstly because I needed to save my voice for Sunday and secondly because I didn't know half the songs they picked. aheh. the next Sunday I went for karaoke again, this time with ilham, hannat, aziza and nadiah at redbox in pavilion. a lot nicer and fancier but also much more expensive. they had a buffet which was good, and we were there for 4 hours singing our hearts out. It was actually a surprise birthday party for aziza, which I forgot about and was taken by surprise when a birthday song started playing all of a sudden and some guy brought in a cake. Loads of fun.
