recess

Recess week starts now for me! Most of it will be filled with work, but what's new?

I just felt that recently, lots of my friends have been getting very stressed and edgy about school, projects, events and stuff, whether freshies or final years. The thing is, I'm not the most perceptive person in the world and I just felt quite touched when I got an email apology about someone's behaviour (which I never expected because we're all friends and we know we'd never be intentionally rude unless we were like seriously stressed or PMS-y). Actually I feel like I've been pretty horrible last week as well because of my presentation (which ended quite badly with the entire part I presented being wrong but it was done as a group with other people so...) but I'm thankful for my friends trying to make me feel better cos I'm sure they noticed my sucky mood after that...

Basically I'm just really grateful for all the emotional support I've been receiving from people around me and I hope I can be a more perceptive person and give other people support as well (because sometimes, I just don't notice).

And another thing that's worrying me really badly - my tutor (who's the lecturer and course coordinator as well) for this really difficult course where it's rumoured that 13% of people fail (which is not a large percentage for other faculties but is HUGE for our faculty) is leaving school after recess week because the university wouldn't let him exchange his unutilized paid leave for money. And well it's not his fault that he wanted to retire (at his age, he really should!) and the stupid university wouldn't let him exchange his leave. So it'll be a new tutor judging our presentation which is quite difficult cos it's the second last presentation of the semester. And a new tutor judging our class participation. For the most difficult module EVER.

:(

Ok, enough of sadness. Regular ditzy frou frou posts coming up after the weekend!

New Phone!



My new Sony Ericsson T707.




My old Sony Ericsson Z610i.


Looks pretty similar huh?! I think my old phone actually looked way prettier! :( I miss it so much (I still have it cos it's not worth much) but the battery was dying very quickly and it had scratches on the inside.

Why do they have to change phones all the time?! Why can't they just upgrade the phone and keep its pretty exterior?

Well I guess I should be happy I have a new one, so.

Anyway today I had a nice day in school doing our project. 4 girls, one seminar room, lots of chatting but also discussing of basic principles (through which I realised we have such lousy basics)! And I paid my non-refundable deposit today... it'll be weird going with someone I hardly know but I hope we can get along!

No Pics

I cannot believe I spent more than 4 hours buying presents today.

And like so many people owe me money. -_-U Ok so it's not a lot but for the first time in my life I'm trying to be accountable for my own money (and so far I've lasted 2 weeks which is really not bad, so I want to keep it going!!!) Now I know exactly how much money I spend on food, entertainment, (highly unnecessary) purchases, transport, presents etc.

It scares me.

Especially the highly unnecessary purchases part.

Photos of latest unnecessary purchase soon.

I have a bad head cold but I have NO TIME so I'm going to cut down on unnecessary entertainment this couple of days. I thought I could reach home early today to practise violin but NONONONO. (Oh well, I forgot about it anyway.)

PIANO! VIOLIN! PRACTISE!!!!!!!

Review: Purederm Skin Recovery Pearl Essence Mask


Purederm Skin Recovery Pearl Essence Mask
This is a sheet mask that caught my eye in the drugstore (my place for cheap things to cheer me up) because it had lots of korean words on it and the shape of the packaging was cute, like a bottle!

Basically the mask claims that
-Pearl Powder has long been a favourite by Asian women to protect and beautify their skin
-Pearl Powder's magical quality helps to tone and rejuvenate the complexion, clear blemishes, minimise pores and reduce skin redness.
-Pearl Powder is effective in rejuvenating dry, dull skin for a dewy complexion

It contains pearl powder, licorice root, vitamin E and collagen.

The mask has an herbal scent to it which I kind of like but others might be repelled. :P The fabric of the mask is very thin and soft which I like, because it adheres to the skin better. It's soaked in a very light liquid, so it wasn't as moisturising as I'd have liked. It did tighten my pores a bit, but I didn't notice any other effects other than smoothness which is what every sheet mask does. So this is just a very basic mask, pretty cheap at $1.95 a piece.

Rating: 5/10

Been really busy recently. This post was post-dated cos I have no time to blog. ;_; Going out to work later. 2310958708917 pages of reading to do. 2 lectures I haven't watched and will probably never watch. 5 days of school next week, 4 parties to go to.
Hurray! My (work)life is back.
