Of mid-sems, friends and the end of the month

Things that have happened recently:
- have been crippled, though will hopefully be able to hobble by tomorrow
- it started raining and it's now actually quite cold. Hi summer.
- I still haven't started practicing piano
- had a mid-sem, in which I corrected two answers I think I got wrong initially, so that's good yes?
- saw Mahi following the mid-sem, ordered vegetable lasagne for lunch and then re-realised how much I don't like vegetable lasagne.
- saw alumni and current high school kids at uni. Need to arrange more meetings with more people I have neglected. I am bad at organising time and keeping track of people.
- people came back from their trips.

And that is one twelfth of 2013 gone. And it's my birthday in four weeks, and that'll be another year gone.

Everything that happens from now on, this is pouring rain. This is paralyzed. I keep throwing it down two hundred at a time. It's hard to find it when you knew it. When your money's gone and you're drunk as hell. I've been twisting to the sun. I needed to replace the fountain in the front yard is rusted out. All my love was down in a frozen ground.

Of boredom and lack of motivation

I am bored. Bored. Bored, bored, bored, as Sherlock would say. I really shouldn't be. I should be studying, I should be getting back into a solid practice routine for piano (which I have been putting off for the past two months), but instead I play AOE, discover that it's rather difficult without a proper mouse, and tap away on the laptop writing blog posts cause I have nothing better to do but to talk to people, which seems to be a waste of resources and time should it be the only activity I undertake when I have my computer on. So. Here I am. Talking about how bored I am. Talking to people is also less rewarding than it usually is cause people are not around to talk to. So in factuality, I am really only properly talking to one person.

Have not done much of excitement lately, except start summer semester, and get mistaken for being of Thai origin by an international student in my tute. I should start reading again. I seem to have lost motivation to read anything. Or write anything of consequence.

Nothing exciting happening lately. Went to dinner at Berth on Saturday night. Was nice. Waiting for various friends to come back from various places. My computer is sick.

Of cleaning out the computer

I get the feeling I have made posts of cleaning out the computer before, but oh well. It does happen a lot. Stuff I found:

- A lot of videos of my dog. Snoring. Sleeping. Sleeping under piles of stuff I've chucked under her. Looking pathetic.
- Videos from the Taylor Swift gig. Long Live looks amazing.
- Finally found that list of past exam papers I did for maths in year twelve. Totaled to fifteen for methods and twelve for spesh. In my defence, I did complete massive pile of random worksheets.
- The Shosta score from Ballarat.

I should start practicing piano again. Once again I'm at the point where I have no idea how to start learning a piece. Too many...notes.

Let's dance in style, let's dance for a while. Heaven can wait, we're only watching the skies. Hoping for the best, but expecting the worst, are you gonna drop the bomb or not? Let us die young, or let us live forever, we don't have the power so we never say never. Sitting in a sand pit, life is a short trip, the music's for the sad man. Forever young, I want to be forever young. Do you really want to live forever? May the best of your todays be the worst of your tomorrows. But we ain't even thinking that far. Fear not when, fear not why, fear not much while we're alive. 
The kid looks like John Legend.

Where do we go? Who knows? But each day gets better, I just can't let her go. Each kiss gets sweeter, I just can't leave her no. I'll write a song. I've thought about it for far too long, but I never had someone to sing about until I met her, now each day gets better. 
I still can't quite figure out why he looks asian. It don't make no sense. And man, the way he plays piano. So much...tinkly.

IFA starts on Wednesday. Sigh. Why does one subject in six weeks seem so much more daunting than six in twelve?  

I'm learning to let stuff go. I was hanging on to something from the past that didn't quite exist anymore, and I didn't realise. It was long gone before I even started fighting for it. Right now I'm just waiting for those who I do have to physically come back to me. Cause everyone's overseas zzzzzzzz.

I have random bruises on my legs

Three to be exact. And I don't know how they got there. There's one halfway up my thigh. How did it even get there? Did I run into a stick or something?

Has yum cha today, gave birthday presents to people, received Christmas presents. Ran around MC frantically buying aforementioned birthday presents beforehand with Alice, ran into Zoe, Zoe tagged along. Drank free tea from T2. Chilled at indoor garden with weird fake grass. Took off centre Polaroid picture. Ate fortune cookies made by some magic toad/frog. Was good. Apparently I say "the thing is" a lot. Back in year nine, my most common phrase used to be "shut up". Oh, how I have improved.

I haven't done a long ramble in a long time, so here have a long end of year ramble that shall take several days to craft

And now I have no idea what to say. Um. Well. This year has been full of changes and stuff. Zomg my mother just reminded me that we're seeing Hobbit tomorrow night woooooooooo. So much excites. Will probably see it twice actually, possibly three times if I feel like being that stupid. Les Mis and Wreck-It Ralph must also be seen.
