Trying not to make my LJ and DW inactive by posting after such a long period of just logging in occasionally to read my Friends Page.

Sorry for dropping out for such a long time. So many things happened lately that I just lost interest to write much.

In summary, this is pretty much what happened:
  • Piano exam schedule and registration mishap. Totally ruined my Saturday by making me in a bad mood.
  • Mid-sem tests - which was a disaster, sadly, despite studying :(
  • Career fair at uni last week - was on the lookout for potential companies I could send resumes to.
Basically, I can't believe I'm going to start working soon. Need to send out my resume more now. If only my CGPA was higher... >.<

More updates when I feel like writing.

Apparently I fail at a lot of things.... like oil painting.

I have to submit one by Tuesday, but despite having combed through whatever online tutorials I can on how to draw with oil paint on canvas, it still looked so bloody horrible. I need to finish it by today, since it needs a long time to dry... But I made a major error and I can't undo the damage :(

Whatever am I to do?

Sigh... Gonna play The Sims 3 now.. will attempt some more painting tonight.

Oh dear... I just finished a watercolor painting to be submitted during my Fine Arts class tomorrow. Have I mentioned how much I suck at drawing? Apparently I suck at this too. It turned out kinda fine before I started adding spectacles to the portrait, and then it was totally ruined, cause I'm not good with the detailed parts. Oh well...


Last Saturday I hung out with a few friends at Mutiara Damansara where we had dinner together. It's been a while since we could all meet together, since some of them had already started working. Ended up at the nearby Cineleisure to watch The Ugly Truth, which is hilarious, but not what I had imagined before I watched it.

The Ugly Truth spoilers... and my opinions  )



By the way, CLAMP fans, have you heard? Apparently there is big news about xxxHoLic.


Seriously, SPOILERS if you are not up to date with xxxHoLic )


Ooohhh!! I almost forgot to put this in. I only just found out that Chapter 1 of The Gathering Storm (the upcoming Book 12 of the Wheel of Time series) was posted at TOR's website HERE. Unfortunately, you have to register in order to read it, but it's free. I've registered, but I don't have the luxury of time to read it right now. I've read a bit of the early parts though, looks kinda good. Looking forward to the release this end of October   /hyper XD



Eh.. this entry went longer than I expected. But I guess it's good, since I want to focus on uni work right now. I've been procrastinating too much lately. We have a one week break next week, and immediately after that will be my mid-semester tests. So I'd better focus and start studying ._.

Updates! Haven't written in a while, I was too lazy to write :P

Piano lessons going on okay (kinda), thank God for that. I just need to force myself to practice everyday as much as I can, cause I know sometimes I'm just too bloody lazy to practice, and other times I'm simply too tired. My sight reading still sucks as usual... and my teacher knows it too, so she's been making me play the sight reading pieces straight away to train me. But so far, the attempt isn't going too well unfortunately. And I wish there was a way for me to make my left hand much stronger so that I'll have better controls when I play. It was so evident when I play the scales, since I have to play it in staccato, and I keep pressing the wrong keys, or playing the notes with the wrong finger.

So, I'm printing some more stuff to play, especially the Hanon exercises to help me cope with this. Now if I could just force myself to play...



On a rather non-artistic note, I've just shown myself to be completely hopeless in drawing human subjects in Fine Arts class XD

Seriously, I feel sorry for my friend cause I totally butchered her face in my drawing. We were supposed to draw a classmate's portrait drawing last Tuesday, and may I say, I failed with flying colors XD

And now I have to submit two figure drawings by next Tuesday. TWO! I suck at drawing human subjects cause I draw them waaaay out of proportion, and I have to submit another two of em? :(

Hopefully things will get better when we finally get the chance to play with the acrylic paint. Although I think it'll be pretty troublesome too, since you can't erase mistakes easily like a pencil sketch. We'll see how that goes :)
