Exam results.


My exam results are out.

Honestly, I am just glad that I don't have to repeat year 1 and that I can safely move onto year 2.

My grades for year 1 were very very average.
But that's alright.
It doesn't mean that I can't get first class honours.

It just mean that I have to ace my year 2 and year 3. 
And that is exactly what I plan to do.

As long as you are still in the race, you can still win.
And right now, that is what matters.
The fact that I am still in the race.
The fact that I don't have to waste a whole year repeating year 1.

So yea.

I had a good rest this summer and so, when the summer break ends, it's time to get up and start moving.
I am feeling pumped up and motivated to go to year 2.
HELL YEA~!

Holiday is about to end.


It's August now.

That means my results are about to come out soon and my summer break is about to end soon.
I will start university soon again in September.

It kinda makes me sad because I really enjoyed this summer.

It was really nice to have a few months to yourself where you can just flat out relax and do whatever you want to.

So I spend my time with my one of my most favourite thing ever.
Stories.

I spend a lot of time reading, writing and watching stuff.

And it was fun.

Honestly, I wish I had more time to do that because there are still quite a few books that I haven't finished and a few other stuff that I haven't watched.

I know that to most people my summer break would sound boring but it wasn't to me.

I really just like the idea of relaxing before starting to work hard again.
At least, when university starts again this year, I can say that I am well rested and I am ready for the challenge.

I got nothing.

I really got nothing to say right now.

Except that anime is freaking awesome this season.

I haven't been this happy or excited in a long long time.

OH MY GOD, JUST YESSSSS TO ALL OF THE ANIME.

Enough of that, I'll put in a funny video or two here for your enjoyment.

Here's Weird Al's latest works. ENJOY :

P-P-P-Polaroids~~!



I know that they aren't called polaroids anymore. But that's what I call them. So yea.

Anyhow, a few days ago, I was celebrating my friend's birthday with some other friends.

And we had a polaroid camera.

They took several pictures.

In the end, they had a whole bunch of pictures and we ended up, splitting it, taking whichever we want.

So that means, I get to keep one picture.

Personally, I wouldn't understand why would anyone want a polaroid picture in this day and age when you have camera phones. I mean, it's so easy with a camera phone and you can upload it real quick on the internet. Plus, you can share with your friends so in the end, everyone gets a copy. And you don't have to pay for film.

But now that I have a copy, I stare at it every once in a while.

When we were taking the pictures, the polaroid camera had a really bright flash that blinded everyone.
But this bright flash created a really nice effect to the pictures. It was really nostalgic looking and very vintage like.

The pictures had this faded colour thing going on so it looks like it's really nice.



And to be honest, I really like this effect.

Not only that, polaroid camera's print the picture instantly and it is a real copy. So you have one real picture in your hands, immediately. It feels like magic in a way. hehehe.

Anyhow, I have a weakness for vintage stuff or things that look like they are full of memories.

So I am wondering if I should get a polaroid camera and begin taking polaroid pictures.

But the only thing stopping me is the cost of the camera and the cost of the film.

Yea, as awesome as polaroids are, it has its' downfall which is the fact that you have to pay for film. sighs.

But at least, it's old school. hehehehehe.

Pretend there is a title because I can't come up with anything good.



I was hanging out with some friends the other day and we were talking.

A friend loves photography and thus believes having a professional camera makes a photographer better.

But another friend argued that the phone camera's quality are so good now that they can rival professional camera's.

The photography friend got a little mad, stating that there is a difference taking pictures with professional camera and phone camera. That professional camera has a better feel to it.

I thought about it.

And for some reason, it made me think of writing.

There are writers who love the typewriter because it has a really vintage cool feel to it.
There are writers who love the computers or laptop because it's easy.
There are writers who love pen and paper because you can feel yourself work and you can see the words really coming together.
There are writers who love writing on their phones because they are busy and it's convenient.

But which apparatus makes a writer better? Which apparatus makes a better writing?
And the answer is none.

Just like photography, it doesn't matter what camera you use.
I think what matters is whether you love it or not and enjoy it or not.

If you don't like taking pictures, you can have the best camera and it doesn't mean a thing. 
A camera doesn't make you a photographer.
Your photography makes you a photographer.

Just like having a pen and paper doesn't mean you are a writer.
Your writing makes you a writer.

And that is that.

Writing.



It's July. 
And that means, it's camp nanowrimo time.

What is camp nanowrimo?
It is just a time where you spend one month where you write 50000 words.
It's a month where you create a novel and finish it.
A novelling month.

It's the same as nanowrimo.
Only difference is that, it is July which is in summer.
So that is why they call it camp nanowrimo, like it's a summer camp~!

Anyhow, thank you to those who voted and helped me decide which story I should write for this camp nanowrimo.



Xerxes won. 
So I will be writing about him.

Anyhow, I love writing.
Writing feels like meditating to me.
It gives me a peace of mind.

When I write, be it a diary or a story,
I feel like my mind calms down alot.
I feel like everything suddenly becomes silent and clear.

And then, suddenly makes sense.

I just started writing on Xerxes story and even though it has been hard starting because I really don't know how to start.
It's been good.
I can feel the story churning and I am actually having fun despite the slow wordcount. 

Writing is good for me and I like it.

But what amazes the most when I write sometimes is,
when you let the story take over and just let it flow.
The story takes you to amazing places.
You write things that you never thought was possible.

Like recently,
I just wrote a lullaby for little Xerxes.
And wow, I never knew I had that in me.
So yea.

Cheers to writing.
And may this be a good writing month~!
