I'm still alive

Wow it's been a year since I last posted!

Life hasn't changed a lot since I last posted tbh.. I'm still feeling chill and not stressing as much as I should be over assignments and tests. This is my last semester at uni as well, which is quite daunting actually. I'm not sure what the future holds for me but I am a little bit excited. I recently applied for a graduate program and I've progressed to the third stage out of four so far. I'm talking about 3.5 hours of interview, group activity and written assessments. I have a feeling this stage is where I'll bomb out but still gotta try my best!

I've been watching some of the videos I took from my trip in Japan and Korea and holy shit I miss it so much. Travelling with friends is so different to travelling with my family. Normally when we go to a country other than my parent's home country (Vietnam), we'd be on a chinese speaking tour... which sucks for me because I probably understand 18% of everything they say. Tours have their own perks and stuff but I think I enjoy the freedom of not being on a tour more. Travelling with the girls was amazing albeit stressful at times. BUT I do blame some of that stress on the heat we had to endure while in those countries. My god, I did not expect Japan or Korea to be so hot!! There was one day where I was wearing denim shorts and we were walking around the whole day so I was sweating heaps and because of that (tmi), I developed a rash on my inner thighs, which hurt like a motherfucker.

I'm also stuck in a dilemma atm. I'm trying to decide what to use my money on. It's either I finally buy a car or I go to Japan and Korea again in December. I really want both tbh. I guess the choice is quite simple. I've wanted a car for ages and if I were to get a job next year, having a car is pretty much a must. But at the same time I have a feeling the upcoming holidays will be my last big holiday for me to travel and have fun. Some people might find it silly that I'd wanna travel to the same countries again in the same year but honestly, I enjoyed it heaps. Plus it'll be winter in those countries in December so I reckon it'll be a whole new experience seeing as it actually snows there. Even though I'm not a winter/cold person .........

Why is money always such an issue?

To people who say money can't buy happiness.. I think you're wrong.. to a certain extent. Although just being with friends and family can bring you happiness, I feel like money allows you to experience more. You don't have to necessarily use that money to purchase materialistic things because those only bring you temporary happiness but rather, I'd say it's more wise to use that money on experiences. Anyone who has traveled would agree. It's been a month since I've been back from that trip and 5 months since I've been back from my other trip to Vietnam and Taiwan and I'm still reeling from the happiness and memories from them.

Anyways, I've missed you guys!

This semester is so overwhelming. I have so much due and to do in the coming weeks. I know I should be stressed and I want to be stressed but I don't feel it. I feel so chill right now that I'm more worried about myself being chill than the actual assignments. Does that make sense? Like, I'll have random 3 second bursts of 'oh shit, I should do this now before it becomes last minute again' but then I'll forget about it and I'll start watching Youtube videos or The Bachelor.

winter break

Friday, June 19, 2015


Hi all, before I dive into word-vomit, I'd like to post these two videos here because they basically sum up my Summer holidays which I haven't blogged about yet due to my laziness.

Okay anyway, I've been itching to put up a new post for a while now but every time I sit down in front of the 'new post' page, my mind empties itself of things to write. Firstly, finals. I'm in the midst of my final exams period and I'm so keen for it to be over. My last two exams are both prac exams and they're on next Monday and Wednesday so that's another.. 5 days until freedom. I'm supposed to be studying right now but I'm rewarding myself with undeserved break time.

Knowing me, you'll know that I'm more of a summer person as opposed to winter. I'd much prefer soaking up some sun, swimming in the clear blue ocean water and frolicking along the grainy sands than snuggling up in my blankets at home. However, that doesn't mean I'm not looking forward to the winter break because trust me.. I am. I don't have much planned at the moment because I enjoy the idea of spontaneity but so far I know that I'll be going to the Snow Mountains with a couple of friends as well as Melbourne with my sister, Tian and Cynthia.

Here's a list of some things I'd like to do:

  • Wow, it already took me 5 minutes to think of something because all my brain could muster up was 'go to the beach'. But why not? I'd still enjoy the beach in winter. 
  • Try knafeh and hopefully see what all the hype is about. 
  • Go on a few hikes
  • House of crabs
  • I swear I had more but I've got a mind-blank atm. Will update when I think of more LOL

stressed but not depressed

I'm sitting in the food court at uni at the moment and I'm bored as fuck. I don't know why I decided to come so early. I've studied as much as I can and I've gone through the content at least 10 times. I feel ready but at the same time I don't know what I don't know. Oh well. I've already had a mini meat box for breakfast (or brunch because I don't usually eat breakfast) and I've had a bit of coke and now I'm having a caramel latte. My tummy's starting to feel a bit funky but hopefully this feeling disappears soon. I'm also listening to Krewella and Sticky Fingers to make me feel happy.

I've probably said this at least 83 times (no exaggeration) already but I can't wait for the break. I can't wait to be free and do whatever I want. I've compiled a list of places to see, things to do and restaurants to try (which I'll post after my last exam to mark the beginning of break). Very much excite!
