Regrets

I’m a frustrated artist. I’m a frustrated  dancer. I’m a frustrated gymnast. I’m a frustrated pianist.

I now regret wanting out of all those piano lessons, ballet and gymnastics training sessions, and those painting classes when I was a kid. I even regret going to swimming class for only one summer. Kinda wondering what I’d be now if I pursued all of those. I might not even be studying science right now(wow, there’s a thought!)

*Sigh*. So many regrets.

*Going back to browsing artists’ tumblrs and various blogs and thinking about saving up for an Instax or a DSLR camera and playing Pottermore*

On another note, who knows an effective way of saving money? Because I just pretty much store it in my wallet so I’m more prone to impulsive buying and that’s bad. THAT’S. BAD.

Been doing absolutely nothing for almost a week now. I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. I keep telling myself (and everyone around me) that I’m saving all the rest and relaxation I’m getting now in order to prepare for second sem, but I feel like I’m just kidding myself. Basically, what I’m actually doing is ruining my circadian rhythm and setting myself up for a week of waking up on the wrong side of the bed once the semester starts.

Still. I don’t want to not stay up late and pig out now, because I won’t be able to do it once school starts again. Well at least, not for leisure, because I’m sure that I’m gonna be having sleepless nights at least once a week ’till Christmas!

Let’s see… The past week, all I’ve been doing is:

Wake up at noon-eat brunch-surf the internet-snack-review for NMAT-exercise-internet-dinner-internet-internet-internet(this goes on ’till early morning)-sleep. THEN REPEAT. Occasionally, Internet time is replaced by any of the following: reading W.I.T.C.H., Cuckoo’s Calling, playing with my goddaughter, and watching Running Man. And yes, I do shower, I just didn’t put it there because it seemed obvious HAHAHAHA

I decided to cut myself a little slack since it is vacation time, after all. Rest times are meant to be spent at home with family. That, or I start feeling so tired at the prospect of travelling again. One thing’s for sure, though–I need to swim before the break ends. I need to feel my element surrounding me again, and I’ve always felt best when I’m in the water, be it a pool or the sea!

That’s it for now. Hahaha I’ve nothing more to say (mostly because nothing interesting has happened to me in the past day or so) :)

Giraffe!!!

My cousins all came here for lunch, so they woke me up earlier than I would have normally. NOW it begins to feel like vacation :)

And if you visit my Facebook, you might be wondering why my profile picture is a giraffe…

Two giraffes as my profile picture!!! That’s Lee Kwang Soo, who’s labelled as a giraffe in the Korean variety show, Running Man!

There’s a giraffe game circulating on Facebook and it goes like this…

THE GIRAFFE GAME

The deal is I give you a riddle. You get it right you get to keep your profile pic. You get it wrong and you change your profile pic to a Giraffe. MESSAGE ME ONLY SO YOU DON’T GIVE OUT THE ANSWER.

Here is the riddle: 3:00 am, the doorbell rings and you wake up. Unexpected visitors, It’s your parents and they are there for breakfast. You have strawberry jam, honey, wine, bread and cheese. What is the first thing you open?

Yep, you get it… I fell for a trap. Message me if you have an answer, and I’ll e-mail you if you’re correct or not!

Game aside, I actually have a deep appreciation for giraffes! I even have a stuffed giraffe in my room!! :) :)

Me and my cousin Matthew with the giraffe!!!

My day so far

I had trouble sleeping last night. Er, this morning. I totally closed my eyes at around 1 am but I think it wasn’t until about 3 am did I finally succumb to the world of dreams. (Naks, poetic!)

As a result, I didn’t have as much trouble as I usually have waking up for church this morning. I actually woke up at 7am! Yes, guys, that’s an achievement considering it’s vacation time. After church, I got home, surfed the net a bit, then slept again ’til the afternoon, where I woke up just to have lunch.

After that, I attempted to study for the NMAT again, but nothing was sinking in, so I just decided to read W.I.T.C.H. magazines again. I know, super unproductive. By the time I realized that, my eyes were slightly hurting from being in front of the screen all day long. I then decided to search for Hip Hop Abs videos on YouTube, and I decided to do a 45-minute workout.

I only lasted 15 minutes. I was totally winded by the second exercise—as in my breaths were coming in gasps and my sides hurt from all the dancing around. This didn’t come as a surprise to me as I haven’t done anything physically demanding since KaSCIyahan, and even then, it was only for August and September. Grabe, 15 minutes of exercise only and already my leg muscles were slightly hurting when I went down the stairs to get water. Hayy, I’m so unfit!!!!!

Therefore, I tried lessening my rice intake during dinner. Well, I succeeded, but I drank a lot of water to fill my unsatisfied belly hahaha.

To remedy this, and to finally cut some kilos off my figure, I pledge to 15 minutes of Hip Hop Abs every night. And if I can manage it, longer. (I hope I don’t regret this!!!)

Hmm… I should probably do this whenever I get sleepy from NMAT review… Now there’s an idea!
