Emotional rollercoaster.


This week has been an emotional rollercoaster for me.

I don't know why exactly but my emotions has been all over the place.

Anger.
Frustration.
Happiness.
Boredom.
Stress.

But I guess that's just school talking.

But I really need to learn relax and calm down.

Because I panic, get frustrated and angry really easily.

Yup.

What a life.


Honestly, when I turned 21, I must admit that I felt a little scared and unsure.

I don't know why but when I turned 21, I didn't feel 21.
What I mean is, I don't quite feel like an adult.

I don't feel like I am in complete control of my life.
And I certainly feel like maybe, I am being left out.

I see everyone around me who turned 21 and they all seem so 21.
They have nice parties.
They wear pretty dresses.
They walk around like they are grown up.

And then, you have me.

But as time passes by, I don't feel like that anymore.

I mean, yes, I may not wear pretty dresses or whatever.
But I am okay with that now.

In the past, I felt all these pressure. I felt like I was missing out.
But not anymore.

So now, I just worry about what I am doing.

And honestly, I am very happy with the life I lead.
In fact, I consider myself very lucky.

I am studying what I like.
I like the feeling of constantly learning.
And yes, even though the university work load is a little insane and overwhelming,
I must admit that I enjoy learning this stuff.
I have some pretty awesome classmates that I truly have fun with when I do see them in university.

It's good.

And I feel like life can't get any better than this.

And honestly, I want this moment to last forever.

But I know life.

This moment will not last forever.

One day, it will come to an end too.

And so, I really have to appreciate right now.

I don't want to regret not appreciating this good moments.

Writing.

University already started.

And I should be paying attention to my books.

But once in a while, I write.

Or rather, I only write during one class(this class bores me. hahaha)

Oddly enough, this class makes me write poems.
I usually don't write poems.
But this class makes me write poems.

So just this week alone,
I wrote two poems.

And I am gonna post the links here. So yea.

Go check it out :

My very Moriarty poem
This poem is written when I was thinking about BBC Moriarty from Sherlock Holmes.
I could imagine Moriarty saying this.
So this is a poem for him.

Languages


I am in a little dilemma that I probably need to sort out soon because the deadline is coming soon.

Anyhow, my classmates are thinking of learning Spanish. 

Personally, I do think it's a good idea. After all, I have always wanted to learn as much European language as I possibly can (that's a personal goal of mine)

But at the same time, thinking about learning Spanish got me thinking about French.

I studied French before and personally, I do love it. 
But I have left it alone for years and thus, it has deteriorated quite badly.
Therefore, a thought entered my mind. Instead of learning a new language, wouldn't it be better if I mastered a language that I learnt before?
That way, I can truly say I speak French because I will be able to speak it fluently.

Thus, I am torn between the two. 

If I learn Spanish, I get to be with my classmates and it will be relatively easy since it's the beginner course. I won't have to sacrifice so much time and effort.

If I continue French, I get to pick up where I left off and master what I didn't master. But it will be hard because I am at the intermediate point where there is quite a few grammar rules and all that sort of stuff.

Or better still, don't study French or Spanish. Just go focus on my degree studies since it will be tough.

SIGHS.

I really don't know.
But I left a poll down here so that you can let help me decide.

What language should I learn?
Spanish
French
Focus on your degree

Thanks alot~!

Iphone vs Nokia Lumia?




So the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were revealed this week.

And of course, as an Apple fan or rather an iPhone lover, I have my own opinion on this.

In the past, I would have just been stare at the latest iPhone with complete awe and desire~~!

But not this time. (Not that I no longer stare with complete awe and desire but it's less now.)

WHY?



Because my Nokia Lumia 520 has been really good to me.
Yes, it's a cheap phone.
But the windows 8.1 update has made it so much more beautiful.

Yes, I realized that when it comes to phones, it's aesthetics that I care about.
Yes, it's the beauty of the phone.

That is the reason why I love the iPhone so much. It's because it is so beautiful and pristine. I find it's beauty and elegance unprecedented. 

And recently, the windows 8.1 managed to give me the beauty and elegance I want from a phone.
I find my Nokia Lumia 520 so beautiful now.
And I love both the software and hardware.
The thing about Nokia Lumia 520 is that the hardware is already beautiful.
And now, with the windows 8.1 update, the software is now beautiful too.

It doesn't annoy me that the app market for windows is much smaller than android and apple.
Because personally, I have all the apps that I already need. 
So I am good.

Anyhow, what do I think about the iPhone 6?
Well, it's beautiful, like usual.
But the hardware sort of reminds me of the Nokia Lumia 630. Therefore, I am not really amazed.

However, just as I was about to write off the iPhone 6 as no big deal, it has one feature that I really like.

Yup. That thing that calculates your exercise or walking automatically and even the elevation level.
I really like this feature.
Honestly, this one feature that Apple has that no other phone ever have.
I wonder why though.

I know android has a lot of apps out there that can calculate your exercise or walking thing. 
But we all know that most of it doesn't work.
Plus, it won't feel as good as an in built feature.

I know that this is just one feature.
But this is a very important feature to me.
Thus, increasing my desire and love for iPhone by bucketloads. 

When it comes to phone, I don't care about alot of things except for the things that I want or I am looking for.

So in the end, the iPhone 6 still has some appeal to me but it was not as much as it used to be.

And right now, I personally feel that Nokia (or rather Microsoft) might be a big contender in the phone industry soon. 

Why? 

Just like Apple, they make the hardware and software. And honestly, I think that is what makes a phone great.
A beautiful hardware that comes with a smooth and seamless software.

And with the windows 8.1 update, Windows is showing that a lot of potential. So yea. Beware, Apple.

First week of university


The first week of university has started and even though it just started, I am already beginning to get stressed.

There is still so much things to do that I haven't done yet because I need to decide.

I need to settle my registration,
and I need to get the textbooks.

Textbooks aren't cheap, you know.

And it's time to pay the fees but because my faculty coordinator screwed up a little so the fees have to be paid but without the student loan that I am suppose to get. sighs.

Oh well.

Anyhow, things will only get busier from now but it's alright.

I just need to remind myself that year 2 has started and I can do this.
And I need to relax because I get stressed out way too easily. hehehe.
