My heart rate is 81bpm. Those who have the slightest clue will catch on that 81bpm is NOT something to be proud of- it basically means that i'm unhealthy and dun do any exercise such that I have any muscle strength at all. I told my housemates, and they're making me their next convert to the gym. Please, If i ever fork out the money to enter a sweaty, rank, mouldy gym, someone kill me. Thanks! I'd rather die of some cardiovascular disease like heart failure.. (only joking... but just..)
Made my first receipe from Laura's vegetarian cookbook. After initial doubts, it turned out alright- Perhaps next time I should choose a receipe that didn't involve tomatos. (I HATE tomatos, and the receipe was garnished with raw, floury, sour, tomatos... yich..) But other than the tomatoes, it was really tasty.
I came home today and thought that I needed a change, so I decided to take myself literally, and take a shower.. only to find out that our shower door had been replaced by a shower curtain that didn't quite make it to the shower gutter.. Hence, when I was in the shower, water gushed everywhere on the floor.. It reminded me of the Italian and French showers. European designers... they're awesome!

Slightly paranoid that I'm losing my mind- because I have no outlet and no car..
For once in my life, I'm looking forward to summer just because i'll be able to go to the beach.. I'll probably miss getting to wear coats and beanies and jackets tho..
Can you be infatuated with some you're not sure if you like? Like really infatuated? My problem is that i'm too quiet and too easily influenced by others.. and too lost for words.
Am obsessed with Studio Ghibli and Miyazaki.
Wish I knew how to judge people's character.. be more empathetic, and know what people are thinking and feeling. Wish i was more of a people's person. Hate the fact that I've got a quiet voice which gets quieter when i'm nervous. I like the fact that i'm sarcastic- but that often backfires.. =p
I like random things..Like when people smile for no particular reason, when people walking by are lost in though and start smiling or laughing for no disternable reason..
There's a dead magpie carcass I pass every morning i walk to school. It's been there forever. I wonder if one day it'll be cleaned up or if it'll lie there in the sidewalk scrub until it decomposes?
Ebay is evil and addictive and I should quit buying things if I know what's best for me!
Is it bad of me to admit I like the feel of lungs? They're all squishy and airated and light- like mousse.. but not really.. Sometimes I think I'm a bit strange..
Want to paint like I used to paint. But have kinda lost "the touch". "The touch" is just the confidence that you could create something that you image in your mind. (at least.. that's what happened to me. I had this great confidence that I could reproduce something that I saw so vividly in my mind. And it would appear on the piece of canvas/paper in front of me.) They say u need skills, but it's just the belief that you can do something.
Perhaps I should get to bed.. yes, I should, before I get keyboardface.

I'd like to take credit for this photo... but no, it was taken by Anne the german- a 4th year med student who was brave enough to trek to Australia to complete a medical elective in a foreign country which doesn't even speak her own native language.
Well... uni has been back for all of days now, and i'm not of to a good start. I woke up late today, at 12:15 in fact! Lectures started at 12- so there goes congenital heart defects.. To add to that, I'm missing the fact that i cant just get up and call a friend to catch up. I guess i got too used to the social situation in Sydney. Grah!
Can't wait till next holidays already. It's a curse!
Saw Shrek2 with Ashesh, and it was GREAT! I think the trick is to go into it with no expectations what so ever.. that way, when jokes get fired from one gingerbread man to the next, you'll be in hysterics. Seriously, the best charater was Mongo the giant gingerbread man. Favourite quote: We're up Chocolate creek without a popsicle stick.
