I got to sleep some time after 4AM last night but made sure to set my cell phone alarm to 7:45AM. It rang faithfully and managed to get me up, but I fell asleep again and finally crawled out of bed at 9:20AM because my room was starting to get stuffy. The sun has a tendency to wake me up when I want to sleep. Go away, you blasted thing. I demand uninterrupted sleep after a hard night of getting killed in Battlefield 2.
More computer crap. I’m downloading Quake 4 through BitComet right now. It’s coming along at a steady 50 – 80KB/s. 93.6% of it completed, only 171MB / 2640MB left to go. Yay. I wasn’t even aware that the game was released until I checked The Pirate Bay for some new music.
So..After getting up I went to KLCC with my mom and brother. Went to Isetan and browsed through the dress shoes. There are some ridiculously priced ones there – I saw shoes going for RM1799 ($499.72 USD) and I wondered who in hell actually bothers to purchase those. They look exactly the same as the other ones, so why pay such a hefty price? Quality? Shoes break down with time, noone needs to buy $500 USD shoes. Surprise, surprise. No matter how expensive your shoes are, they will break.
I was looking for a decent pair and Je Gun ended up finding me. Turns how he was also shopping for some “delegate clothing” for THIMUN. I chose a pair of Rockport dress shoes, we paid, and walked out of Isetan.
One of the things I had on my mind today was those damn Sennheiser HD212 Pro headphones. I’ve been waiting for them for a while, and I intended to pick them up. So I did. My mom went up to Kinokuniya to read some bestselling book or other, and I walked off with Justin to Mediaplex. Paid my remaining RM110, picked up the headphones, and walked off to check out a few other stores. I played around with the Sony VAIO U-series in the SonyStyle shop. I hope they produce that little beast again when it’s time for me to go to college. Having such a portable device for computing would be great.
Justin was whining about feeling hungry so we went down to the food court and ate. He got something from Kyro’s Kebab, I ate McDonalds. Mmm. Big Mac. It’s pretty much pure fat, but I’m not one to complain. It costs less than anything else and fills you right up. That’s bang for the buck.
Uh. After that we just bothered my mom until she said it was okay to go back home. And we drove back. I got back home and started looking through The Bell Jar for scenes regarding death and suicide used for rebirth. Fooled around with my new headphones as well. My dad walked into the room to find me napping with the headphones over my ears. At which point he realized that they were new headphones and that he had never seen them before. At which point things began to deteriorate at a very rapid rate.
Yeah, he freaked out. I have enough headphones, that’s true. And, well, that was the argument. “Alex, why do you keep wasting money on this? You already have it. It’s enough.” Whoops. So here’s a quick run-down of all my audio costs to date.
- Samsung YP-30 $150 USD
- Samsung YP-35 $130 USD
- Sony MDR-G52 $20 USD
- Sennheiser MX500 $20 USD
- Philips SBC HN-110 $50 USD
- Sony MDR-EX71SL/WK $40 USD
- Sennheiser HD212 Pro $60 USD
Haha. Yeah yeah. I need to sell off both Sony’s, so somebody buy them off of me.
Yeah. My dad’s going to kill me because I’m just that damn stupid at times. Well, most of the time. I thought the headphones were worthy investments. All except for those Sony MDR-G52s. Those things pinch my ears like hell.
By the way, these Sennheiser HD212 Pros kick ass for anything bass-heavy. Darude – Sandstorm (Original Mix) sounds amazing right now. I’ll try it out with some more dance / trance music.
Listening to Doublestar Project – Ocean Blue (Remix) and yes, the bass is great. Finally, Tune Up – Ravers Fantasy.
So what else is there to do? I’m ready for my Honors English IB Oral Presentation practice. Bring it on.
I’m going to keep holding on because I’m still confused about what changed. Think about it because I can’t understand what’s changed at all. Be reallistic in your goals, take it one step at a time and you’re bound to achieve what you’re capable of doing.
w00t for the future. Mine’s going to kick ass.
Windmill, Windmill for the land.
Turn forever hand in hand.
Take it all in on your stride.
every thing is, falling down.
Love forever love is free.
Let’s turn forever you and me.
