Sad is my thing.

note: I wrote this draft this early morning because I can't sleep

First of all, I write this post because I can’t sleep. My biological clock decide to rebel on me, I guess. Anyway, I’m not doing anything much these days. So the only thing that kept me busy is books. Last week I finished reading two novels, both of them are teen-fiction (which is my favorite genre) and I decide to spill my insight of these two books.

Both were equally good, equally sad.

I started to read If I Stay because rumor has it that the book is going to be adapted into movie. It’s a pretty straight-forward book. When I first started I was shocked how fast things happened in the book, but after further reading, I understand why. There are lots of sad moments. I fell in love with the bond that all the characters had, I wish I have things like that in my real life. This book certainly makes me think for a while of how many things in life that I took for granted, and how selfish I can be. Aaaanyway, I can’t help to wait for the movie if it’s coming out, so I can cry and be reminded again of those life lessons. :D

Eleanor & Park was randomly chosen. I was bored so one day, I just browse any interesting e-book to be downloaded, found this and download it right away. In a nutshell, it’s about being young and first love which I totally can relate since I am young. Not high school young but still can relate with it. It reminds me of Toradora (Toradora is an anime series. If you ever watched it and you read this book, you’ll probably understand what I’m feeling). It has different plotline and setting of course.

There are two things that I love about this book. Firstly, the story is set on 1986. Mixtape, postcards, The Smiths, Marvel Comics. What’s not to love? Another thing would be the portrayal of the character. It is so humanely accurate (I’m not even sure if this phrase makes sense). It felt so real and convincing. Eleanor’s life is definitely miserable that there are few times I had to stop reading because the helpless feeling is unbearable.

So that’s that.  I think maybe I should start reading The Fault in Our Stars too.

which means waiting in Japanese, if I'm not mistaken.
which what I did the whole day today (technically yesterday but now is just 12.20am so who cares.)
and I'm pretty impressed with myself.

Patience is never been my virtue. That, I am very well aware of. That's why I'm impressed. Since I woke up this morning, my mom asked me to 'tapau' chicken rice from SCR because my grandparents coming, and we have nothing much in the kitchen to cook. So I went to SCR and go 'tapau' something. So I have to wait.

Then, as usual, I have to pick my sister from work, and again I waited for her. Since my mom craving for egg  tart, we went to bakery to buy some egg tarts also other breads because this week somehow a lot of guest coming to our house. Then there is massive jam (comparing to other city in the world, this 'massive' jam is nothing) around Bulatan UITM, so I waited patiently for the traffic jams.

Then this night, my sister and her family came here from KL to visit my mom and I was asked to picked them up. I was told that they arrived at 9pm but probably due to severe haze at Peninsular, they were delayed for 25 minutes. And also, my nephew's stuff was a lot, so we have to wait for the luggage as well.
And so, there I was, eating alone at McDonald and waited.

So that's that. I waited. Patiently. Part of me was proud, part of me starting to get annoyed.

I guess, when we grow up, we become kind. Probably because we tend to understand others feeling. Anyway, I just hope that this positive day continues on. Who likes to be negative all day?

4 more hours. or so...

I was actually in the middle of studying and now I'm spacing out. Then I realized, my head is already crammed in with words but I still don't know if I can answer this coming exam. Yes, you've read it right. COMING exam. Literally around 4 hours to go. my last paper for this semester. My brain decided to stop cramming last-minute revision so at the end here I am after wandering for a while. Anyway, this is going to be end of my 5th year of my 4-year course, and no, it's not the end, yet. Sigh. I still have one more semester to fight.

Honestly, this is pretty a spontaneous post. I suddenly thought that it's been a while that I'm in here. The last post was on 14th February. The valentine's Day. And my post was a quote about the depressing feeling. On a Valentine's Day. wow. I felt pathetic all of sudden. =.="

There's a lot of things going on in my life, definitely. I guess this is pretty much the transition phase, so a lot of things going on. My friends moved on to the real world and for me to observe them is somewhat feeling surreal and I can't help but feel overwhelmed. Because of that, the dynamics of our friendship going through change and evolved. It's harder to hangout casually now, as we live different places and have different priorities in life. Despite that we still look out for each other (thanks to the technologies, it's easier). We have deeper conversations, as we reflect a lot from our own view. I think it's a good change, and I'm adapting it.

Anyway, these thoughts remind me of how far have I gone in my life, how much that I've changed, and make me miss all the good times. Now that I've put words out here, I can continue revising. So, til the other time.

Thousand years of sleep.

“I can't think again. Not ever again. I don't know if you've ever felt like that. That you wanted to sleep for a thousand years. Or just not exist. Or just not be aware that you do exist. Or something like that.” 
― Stephen ChboskyThe Perks of Being a Wallflower

I know how that felt. It just, I never could express it in words before. and this definitely elaborate the feeling precisely.

 really, I don't know what to post. Well, I guess my writing mood have its season. I've been busying myself with animes and Pottermore. oh yeah, I got into Ravenclaw. :D

A very short post, I assumed.

Last weekend was superb. I got to watch Mama, which is I think a fine horror movie. It's good in a way that everyone scream their hearts out. ( 2 days after that I still sleep with my light on =.=") Not that it matters anyway since most of the time I slept around 4-5 am. My sleeping habit is kinda getting worse. I'm not sure what makes me so awake on the night. My morning starts around noon. Apparently my biological timezone not in sync with the surrounding again. And it is pain in the ass to fix that.

I bought Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.  :) It is some kind of spin-off from Harry Potter. Being a die-hard fan, I feel like being a kid given a lollipop. I should put this moment as the time that I've been truly happy.Besides I've found 3, eh, 4 novels that I'm dying to buy... So hopefully that RM250 rebate is coming soon, because I can't wait to bought them. :D

That this week it's back to being in slumber again. Nothing much is going around I guess, but the results coming out, that's what people said. I really hate that nerve-wrecking feeling that I had since yesterday. My friends told me that I'll be fine, but why do I have a hard time to believe that. I shall go distract my mind for a while until I get to see the outcomes.
