I am finally ready to end my Dayre days. I think, it is no longer compatible with my phone. Mind you, I can't seem to upgrade with Android, and I have been stuck at Android 4.0.4 eversince I bought the phone.
I won't be able to use Dayre as I used to anymore. The feed won't load. Not even my own. I don't understand this. I've tried to rectify the situation, but no victory. Lol.
I know they are pleeeeeeenty of apps that are made for Android 5 and above. This sucks.
I am ready to move on. Part of me has given up.
If I have the urge to post, I foresee myself writing (or venting, depending on the time and day) here.
I apologize if this post seems unnecessarily gloomy but my heart is aching.
I'll only see you on my laptop from now on, Dayre.
Lolol. I am backdating this to February and hopefully it works.
February was a month of blissful break and a bunch of movie marathons. And yesss, it was a lot of fun. But, rather unproductive. And resulted in making me very unmotivated. Sigh.
Anyway, here is the recap!
Mostly blogs, and a bit of research articles on virtual reality for school, just a bit here and there.
Again, mostly blog and Dayre. But I spent quite a lot of time painting this time around.
I got pulled back into K-Pop, and I listened to a lot of Epik High.
The Originals! ♥
Quitting my studies, not quitting, and quitting, and not quitting. You get the gist. Haha..
Pizza Hut. This is unhealthy.
Approval of my MyBrain application. It is still in the process and this waiting, this uncertainty is not very fun.
Ola Bola! I am embarrassed to admit that it had been a long time since I watch a local movie in cinemas. But Ola Bola was amazing!
Very lethargic. I was actually quite excited for school to start again!
Well, that wraps up my February. We'll see if I have anything fun going on in March!
It was a funnn break!
I had lots of good food, like rice,
and mooree, all safe in my belleyy!
As part of my resolution to watch (and re-watch) 100 films this year, I watched quite a number of movies during this short break,
I missed "The Insurgent" last year, I was busy and I heard bad reviews, so I skipped it. Finally watched it this year, and heyyyyy it is so good! I cannot wait for the final sequel!
I've watched "The DUFF" too. It's a funny one. A rom-com. The story is very light and addictive, right up my alley! I stayed up just to watch it.
For keepsake, among other movies I've watched and re-watched this year are:
2. Alvin & The Chipmunks: The Road Chip
3. The 5th Wave
4. American Horror Story : The Coven
6. Ola Bola
7. 16 Wishes
8. Legally Blonde
9. The Insurgent
10. The DUFF
P/S: At this rate I'm not sure if I'll be able to hit the hundred mark. Errr....
During the holiday, I spent times with my family and relatives too. And we played games for hours.
One hour we were racers, and next we were bus drivers, and for the longest hours, we were running a doughnut shop like a business mogul. We were really systematic and dynamic. if I were to start a venture, NOW I know who I should call to be my business buddy.
This semester break was also hottest. Fans were on full blast, bottles of water were kept in the fridge, showers just got longer. And clinic? Your new best friend.
Fever, headache, sore throat, cough, welcome to the hood.
On cooler days, I tried to be out and about, and...
It's Chinese New Year, which also meant long holidays!
I've made peace with the traffic because I wasn't the one driving, and alsooo, because I love all the deco!
Anyhoots, the fun needs to stop for now because I need to get back into groove. I have one final battle of hectic semester!
Woah, it has been a month into 2016. I can't help but tremble! January was a month of final exam and long-awaited break. I did not take any long break since February last year. Between March to August, I was occupied with my internship. Interns received 1-day leave for every month (so I got 6 days for my 6-month attachment). I did not even used those up, and right after my internship, I went straight back to school for my Master's Degree. Now that the exam was over, I finally got a month long break. #heaven
So, this is a recapitulation of what I have been up to in this hectic month!
Exam notes, ughh. I hate studying for exam, but this time around I kinda like it. It must be the age.
Need we say more, exam answers. Trololol.
Nothing special in particular, but I've been loving soundtracks & One Direction (it all started with the hilarious carpool karaoke).
The Fab Life Show on Youtube! Chrissy Teigen is such an amaaaaazing host!
My future, graduation, internship, possibilities of pursuing Ph.D, and a lot of school-related issues.
Salmon! That was the highlight of my January. My sister bought me a small portion of salmon at AEON & I cooked up a triple threat; sashimi, cured salmon & aglio olio spagetti with grilled salmon!
One that stand out to me this January was pizza, hot hot pizza!
For good economy in Malaysia
MyBrain(education financial aid) acceptance
Everything light & breezy, the weather is so hot.
Jang Young Sil, a Historical science fiction.
To swim in cool waters.
Inspirations for upcoming research. I have been contemplating between video-resume, classroom education, and so many more. I need to finalize this quickly so that I can get a head-start.
Toasty, really really toasty, it was 91° F all month.
Well, other than that, January was a month of a mini-gastronomic adventure. I have tried and had many good food. I am already looking forward to February!
Till next time!
2016 is freaking me out already. I am turning 24, monetary and non-monetary responsibilities are coming my way. I cannot believe how fast time flies. I know that one should not chase after perfection, but I am still lacking in so many areas and I don't feel ready.
So last night, I was up, making a list on my mind of the things that I have to work & improve on.
1. Waking Up Early
This is number one because it is something that I feel is the easiest/most feasible. I love mornings, but when I don't have anything scheduled in the morning, I tend to not function during the a.m.
This year, I need to schedule more important agendas during the morning so that I don't have anymore reason to sleep in.
2. Studying & Learning
I don't like studying. "Like who does? *insert derp face*". Well, (surprised!) my sister does. I have been taking a lot of studying advice from her and I want to keep on improving. I am a visual and experiential learner, some of the styles that work on my sister, does not really fit me. I want to spend this year working on a style that is right for me.
Not only that, I want to learn and make use of my knowledge, turn my knowledge into skills, and leverage it to be strengths of mine. Practice, practice, practice.
3. Making Videos
Now this is becoming my major focus as this is what I've been learning for the past semester, and am going to learn in the next semester. Coming from a different background, I started with zero knowledge and have learnt a lot.
I want to keep learning but also make something that I can call mine. I want this to be the extension of what I have studied, because learning should not meet a dead-end. I've dipped my toes into production, and it was hell-ish. But, this is where I want to test my abilities and tenacity, and really make it work.
This is complicated. My skill is not bad, but some days, it can't be very bad. Ya, feel me?
I've realized that communication takes real effort and I want to put in more effort into socializing, making accurate and meaningful conversation (often times people misunderstood me). I want to make more effort in conversing with my family and friends. and bring smiles into people's life.
I really lack the skill of explaining and make people understand. I realised that I need to be present, my mind should not be elsewhere. I want 2016 to be the year I can work on improving that flaw.
5. Critical Thinking
I used to cry a lot because my critical thinking was bad, I was bad (not as good as my sister) in mathematics, science, physics, biology, you get the point. I used to blame my left-handedness (my sister is right-handed), I forced myself to write with my right hand. I felt stupid.
Those days are long gone, I've made peace with my left hand. As much as I have embraced my left-handedness (read: creative thinking, as they said), I wish to work on my critical side.
I have zero idea on how to make that happen, but I'll figure it out.
Among other flaws that I wish to work on are courage, confidence, humbleness, boldness, integrity, and the list goes on. One step at a time. ;)
What do you think?
HAPPEEE NEW YEAR!
2015 is soooo yesterday hahaha... I did a recap of my year on Dayre.
I am definitely the kind of person who likes making New Year's resolutions. Totally! But, I skipped last year because I was feeling a bit down. But, not this year.
This year, I'll be turning
I need to savor my early-20's phase while it lasts!
Here's how I plan to do it:
1. By being true to myself
This year, I wish to truly accept me for who I am and what I am capable of. I've learnt my strengths and weaknesses throughout all these years. I want to slowly, but surely, realise more of what I could be and be brave about it. That is when I'll know that I have been true to myself.
2. By being creative
I wish this year, I want to get in touch with my creative side after neglecting it for so many years. I used to cook, bake, draw, design, play keyboard (more like slamming, but nonetheless...) but I did not do that regularly in the past years.
(I couldn't even read musical notes anymore)
I want to start again. And who knows what I will learn and how I will grow.
3. By being humble
I find that I learn best when I am humble, earnestly and sincerely seeking knowledge.
And I wish to always stay that way. To do so, I need conscious effort to get rid of any speck of cockiness out of myself. I wish that 2016 will bring me just that.
So, those are my dreams for 2016! Twenty-four years old, can't believe it!
