Hit it, Daniel Powter.

I had a bad day. It’s amazing how unproductive I can be when I’m really unhappy.
The skies opened up and wept with me today. Rain, rain, rain. Darkness too. I felt pathetic and well, I wrote a little story in my head (um, and I guess here, now) and the pathetic fallacy crept in. […]

No Time and Forever

It’s a bloody good thing that I didn’t sign up for NaBloPoMo because I’d be dead by now. Post or die, they say? Bang bang, he shot me down. Bang bang, I hit the ground.
I’d like to say that I’m in full hermit mode, but I’m not quite there yet. I’ve been wanting to set […]

Kitchen Duty/Glory

I’ve been on a huge cooking kick. The desire to cook is always fuelled by stress. I guess the academic stress is really starting to pile on. Third year law students are just as susceptible to senioritis as undergraduates in their final year of study. I’ve always known that the academic slacking eventually catches up; […]

Old Habits Die Hard

Crapola. It is past my bedtime and I’ve got a major qi imbalance (yeet hay for the Cantonese speakers). Class begins in 8.5 hours. Lovely. Just frickin’ grand.
But here I am! Blogging!
I guess I got pumped when I read about Mrs. Kennedy’s latest idea, NaBloPoMo, National Blog Posting Month. I have yet to […]

It is time

…to kick some serious law booty.
I am way too tired to be witty. I can’t even insert some appropriate Jedi humour or something. I guess I’m a different kind of nerd.
I have one thing on my mind: getting through my 3 100% final exams that start tomorrow. I suppose I have 3 things on […]

Checking In

I have so much to write about but I really can’t afford the time. I’ve been finding solace in other activities like belting random show tunes out at the top of my lungs. Man, I’m so out of practice! I now have to remind myself to really sing from my diaphragm and not just force […]

Baby Steps

I’m so confused. I’ve spent all this time agonizing over 10,000 words on something important. Something I supposedly believe in. It’s over, but I’m not satisfied.
I signed on for 7 years (and maybe more) of continuous post-secondary education so that I could do something meaningful with my life. No doubt, I’ve found meaning in the […]

Ante Meridiem

I haven’t been very efficient. It doesn’t help that there was a power outage in my neighbourhood this evening after I came home from the library. I’m not exactly into reading and writing by candlelight.
I can’t blame the blackout for my failure to meet my productivity goals. I’m always sabotaging myself. It’s late. I’m […]

Analyse This

You know that school has started to get to me when one of my first thoughts after reading about Graham McMynn’s dramatic rescue from his kidnappers’ suburban hideout was, “He’s going to have to get his exams deferred. I wonder if UBC will automatically grant him approval for any special accomodations without much official […]

It’s Fogey Time!

And now for a little karaoke with Miss Namie Amuro.
(Je t’aime) I love you
(Yo te quiero) yes I do
(Wo ai ni) forever it’s true, oooh
Wherever you are baby, I love you!
Bonne fĂȘte, mon amour!
Forgive the cheese, kids. Today is Dave’s birthday! I usually make a much bigger deal out […]
