:- Kotaro Makari Tooru (Manga) Music Playlist
:- Lindsay Lohan "Rumours"/ Avril Lavigne "Nobody's Home"/ Mariah Carey "We Belong Together"/ James Blunt "You're Beautiful"/ & Backstreetboys "Just Want You To Know" Ranting About
:- Nothing In Particular
Unexciting day. All I did was catch up on more Zzz's.
Desmond and me were both bored (well, it was more him) at the apartment just less than an hour ago, so we began throwing suggestions around ranging from a visit to the internet cafe, watching a movie, or playing Risk. Desmond kept toying with the idea of calling Roy, but didn't seem keen on using his precious credit.
No guesses as to where we ended up in the end. x_x Desmond just left me here alone a few minutes ago to go visit a friend in the hospital. Oh well.
I don't use Mirc anymore. (Yes, those days are so over!) And I've been using MSN Messenger for all my communicating needs. Occasionally, there happens to be a large group or people who know each other online, and so someone gets a bright idea to invite all of them into one conversation. These are the times where some funny comments usually turn up. Like this one...
You'll need to view it enlarged to see what the conversation was. I ripped it out from Bang
Anime Obsession:- One Piece (Manga)
Music Playlist:- Nickelback "If Everyone Cared"/ Fountains Of Wayne "Everything's Ruined"/ Our Lady Peace "Wipe That Smile Off Your Face"/ Evanescence "Understanding (Wash It All Away)"/ & Evanescence "Lies"
Ranting About:- Inconsiderate People & The Planetshakers Conference
You know something? I couldn't believe just how inconsiderate people can be. Knowing what I'm going through, and still being so self-absorbed, confidently ignoring my own plights, and ploughing me through with their own. And you call yourself a friend?
I understand that everyone has their problems. And yet, how do you expect me to be the understanding, symphatic friend that you want me to be when you left me on my own when I was having my own problems to work out? Now you expect me to just ignore that "teeny tiny" fact? What planet do you live on?
Regarding the conference, I don't know yet if I will go. I don't think I even care. I know I've been ranting & raving about it for the whole year, but things change. My life's not what it was back then. I'm starting to believe that all these... Things, or experiences, if you like, will happen constantly throughout my life, whether I like it or not.
Seriously, if you are planning to go to the Planetshakers Conference in KK, drop me a line if you're interested in purchasing my registration from me. I registered as an early bird for RM95. It's not completely confirmed that I'm selling it yet, but I'm more than halfway there on deciding to do so. Just contact me if you're interested. By email.
For all the Malays, Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

I feel that Friendster
has opened the Pandora's Box. I'm referring to their recently introduced option: CSS your profile. It seems to have unleased a bunch of budding "designers" who are eager (and not necessarily young) to customize their profile throughly and create the most unique one ever... With not exactly good results.
I get embarassed when I see other users who are above the age of "teendom" or young adulthood take part with all the gusto they can muster. Yikes! (Please, don't even consider owning up if you are indeed one of them)
I can't believe that the creators of Friendster
would even consider to follow the likes of the less popular Myspace
. I find that Friendster
runs already slow enough without all the recent available options of adding music, music videos or tacky backgrounds to your profile. Thank God for Streamyx!

Text quote for the day: "I've realized that life is indeed full of contradictions. Sometimes it's crazy to be sane. You need to fall to fly. People suffer because you care. You have to unlearn to know the lesson. You have to give up because you are strong. You have to be wrong to make things right. Nonetheless, life's complexities are also life's source of beauty. We should cry to laugh again. Fall apart to be whole again. And get hurt to love again
Well... This day, which is today (duh!), it happens to be one year since I've been baptised. I don't know what to say to that. To be frank, I was damn excited at the thought of it a few months ago thinking how should I celebrate or rejoice or something. But now that it's here, I'm... Pretty much at loss. I don't know what to feel, what to say. It's most likely that I'll finish up the day doing what I've been doing these past few days.
With regard to the quote above, if that's any indication of what my entire life is gonna be like... I want a re-write!!! Damn it, if my life was a movie script, I would order for it to be entirely re-scripted.
By the way, I got the quote from Tess

From Ninja L
's blog:I am someone who thought she knew where she was in life, what she was doing and where she was going but last year ('04) realised that things can get so bad in life sometimes- when you realise that the people who you thought were your closest friends turned out to be not at all what you thought they'd be... Either cause they changed through life's cynical experiences or maybe you yourself changed and have different expectations of them... In this ever changing world. This year however,I picked up the pieces of my life, and am thoroughly living it... Living it better than I have my entire life... The most common thought in my mind last year- "People can't be trusted and the world around me sucks..." The most common thought this year- "Surviving each day isn't really living" ... Happy to say that I am LIVING it :)
I read her personal description on her blog, and it intrigued me so much I decided to post what I read here. You know what? I can't believe I hesitated to say it, but... She's right. She's completely right. And I'm talking about the common thought she had last year. She is dead on right on that.
And why do I wholeheartedly agree with her?
Except for the part where she's currently living her life to the limits, I'm currently personally going through the other things she said (especially the first thing she talked about and the common thought she had in her mind last year), everything being proved to me firsthand.There are many people in various places. You act differently towards
many. You're always searching for yourself. What kind of "you" do
you like? And what kind of "you" do you want to be? I hope you find
the right "you". Good luck to you.

Yesterday's sorrow constantly nears.

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children
, is the most exciting movie to hit the screens for every fan of the Final Fantasy genre. Yes, your fave FFVII characters are back. The only exception is of course, Aeris
, who we only get some "teaser" views of what she would have looked like in some scenes.
I haven't seen the whole movie yet since Russell lent me his copy, but what I've seen so far is good. I think I've only view less than or around 20 minutes of disc one. Check out the screenshots I managed to find.
A slighty grown up Marlene with Tifa
Cloud finds an injured Tifa
Does the scenery look familiar? Well, that's cause it's Aeris's church!
Vincent Valentine looks as good as I imagined. *Hehe*
Even The Turks make an appearance
More screenshots to come! I'll post up my review of the movie when I'm finally done watching it too. Sad to say, I don't know when exactly that will be. x_x

Excuse me for not blogging out all my thoughts.
Life's not going well for me at the moment. I don't want to say things out of my mixed up emotions and later on, regret it. (Which we all know I surely will) Therefore, I'm going to keep everything to myself for now, until... I don't know when. It's anyone's guess, for it could be ages before I manage to sort myself out.
* a series of mental images and emotions occurring during sleep;
* ambition: a cherished desire;
* imaginative thoughts indulged in while awake;
* pipe dream: a fantastic but vain hope (from fantasies induced by the opium pipe);
* a state of mind characterized by abstraction and release from reality;
* have a daydream; indulge in a fantasy;
* someone or something wonderful;
* experience while sleeping;
* the point in time at which something ends;
* the concluding parts of an event or occurrence;
* a final state;
* the part you are expected to play;
* a boundary marking the extremities of something;
* conclusion: the last section of a communication;
* bring to an end or halt;
In short, what I'm trying to say is, "This dream has come to an end".
That's all for today, folks.
