First of all, let me congratulate Andrew on his post in response to the damn Panda’s attack. Bravo. Next time load it up a bit more and attack her good. Write up a damn essay on her comment, even. That’s what I’d do.
Yesterday it started raining like crazy after I got back home from school. I’ve been skipping swim practices all week – I only attended one this week although I do intend to participate a bit more next week. I’ve got to pick up some new swimming stuff at KLCC this weekend and I’ll make sure to buy myself a decent pair of goggles. Contacts? Think I’ll go buy those as well. Harrrrrr.
Back to the rain. I hate it when it rains up here. It’s frightening, really. I’ve never been quite so afraid of lightning until I moved to Kuala Lumpur. My house is located atop a hill-mountain hybrid beast and it’s rather susceptible to being assaulted by lightning. Since moving here I believe the house has been struck, either directly or indirectly, four times. Including yesterday. Every single time lightning rapes the house, one of my electronics gives way. Luckily I made sure to turn off everything in the study this time and so nothing important was killed.
The rain was rather peaceful at first. It’s fun to watch it sweeping across the surface of the pool. Then it decided to flail down in its full fury, lightning arching across the sky at regular intervals. I managed to snap a few pictures, but I don’t intend to bother uploading them. I was playing a bit of piano at the time that the lightning struck. A little popping noise came out of nowhere, and we were left without power. Sweetie was tensed up the whole time, hiding underneath the piano bench in spite of the aural assault coming from the piano.
We turned everything on after we felt that the storm was far enough. Nothing serious because all the expensive hardware had already been unplugged. Had some trouble getting back onto the internet. For some reason or other, the router refused to acknowledge the presence of the ADSL modem. They’d try to communicate and establish a clear link but every time it looked like it was going to work, the router would just throw up its hands and give up. Queer little thing.
School day went along well, only hiccup was that I had forgotten to complete my Physics lab on the bouncing ball. Piech gave us an extension on that assignment, so I’ll sort it out soon. Math Analysis scares the hell out of me. That class is going to be the death of me, I swear. If I’d actually start working perhaps everything would make sense. Instead, I’m just blindly working through problems with no understanding of the underlying concepts in solving them.
Had a little debate with Coutts about what would happen if you hit a diamond with a sledgehammer. He’s convinced that it would either shatter or become deformed. I insisted that as the diamond is the hardest natural substance, it would be highly unlikely that it would come out with even the slightest scratch.
I’ve got to stop fidgetting and jumping around the place. Then I’ll be fine, right? Everyone’s telling me that I’m constantly twitching. Haha.. Superman doth not twitch. And I put some pictures in the Webcam section of my gallery. Be forewarned, I’m not responsible if your retinas begin burning or anything. If they do, the most I can do is apologize for the shittyness of my pictures.
The librarian called Alix and I up and told us that we’d have to talk to the assistant principal regarding “behavior”. She then added that Alix had some explaining to do involving the mysterious disappearence of her picture in the library’s copy of the Middle School yearbook. Whoops. I shouldn’t have drawn attention to that in the first place. Sorry~ Everything will be alright, don’t fret miss. I’m not in the least bit worried about whatever they have to say regarding behavior because I know that I’ve done nothing wrong. Arguing earlier, yes. But that’s over and so, a terse apology should suffice.
“1 Ringgit is too much for you! That’s 100 sen! I’ll give you 10 sen.”
“I’m the responsible one here!”
Haha Ummm.. Everything’s great. I’m happy now, woohoo. Alix was supposed to get those rubber bands in preparation for braces yesterday, but instead they just did a moulding of her teeth. I think.
I want to see the new Harry Potter movie. It’s Harry going through puberty. It’s bound to be great. What could beat watching a wizard struggle with big boy hair?
And Gawd – how many 14 year old guys haven’t had a wet dream yet? You’re late bloomers. Don’t worry, someday you’ll catch up.
Buy me a Sony Ericsson K750i and I’ll love you. It’s only $400 USD. I’m going to have to start saving up again. Perhaps when I’ve totalled my SE T630 and managed to destroy my Nokia 8310 as well, I can pick up one of those things. Oooooh. A 2-Megapixel camera on the back, Tri-Band, purty in black, Memory Stick Duo support. Yeah, even though it’s 2 MP ‘only’ it beats the hell out of all other phones of its class.
Perhaps I should repay my $1000 debt to my dad first. It’s got a 3% annual interest rate on it as well. I need some cash. Full payment is due by the time I graduate from college. This is all money that needs to be repaid for purchase of OCEANBLUe’s parts.
Spring Break in Shanghai. My mom is probably not going to go, so woohoo. A plane ticket to 上海 is only RM1000. 来啊，李小姐。
Grades should be on an upward trend now. I know that my Honors Physics grade has dropped to a B+ as a result of my poor test results, but I’ll hand in the corrections and get that up again. I need to hit an A- at the very least. I’m aiming for an A average in Honors Physics this school year – it’s obviously within reach. I had no problems whatsoever getting an A in Honors Chemistry last year, and I personally feel that the level of material that we covered in Honors Chemistry blows Physics right out of the water. Once again, I’m worried about Math Analysis. I’m afraid that my grade in that class has dropped to a C+. I can’t believe my inability to do math. Last year was a walk in the park, this year will require some actual thought.
I love you 李向贞。 And your soft, weird hair that smells oh-so-pretty.
Leave me some comments so I’ll have something to think about. You know you can.
I’m feeling: Happy
