8th day at home

Woke up at 8.30am, not knowing what day is today, what date is today, i powered up my pc and log in to my fb account. This action seems to be a routine now in every morning of my holiday at home. Hey guys, good morning(if you are reading this in the morning)!

Time passes really fast! No joke man, today is my 8th day at home. After looking at the calender, and thinking back what i've done in the past few days... mmm...i need to really plan what i'm going to do now.

Don't know why? (and i don't want to know why) Thesis just don't fill in any corner of my mind right now. I really don't want to think about it right now. You may say i'm lazy but i don't care. Holiday is meant for us to relax and enjoy. I don't wan to start thinking about thesis right now coz i know i've one year ahead to work with it. After this holiday, i will go back to my boring life(well, i know it's going to be very boring and tiring but i will try my best to twist it even if i will be more tiring).

That day, mmm... a few days ago (i'm bad in remembering days, dates and numbers), i hang out with 3 of my old friends here. It has been quite some time that i did not meet them. I'm the kind of ... 'slow cooker' i guess, i didn't talk mush even though i had a lot to share with them. I'm always the type of 'slow to get warm', sigh... i know we will have fewer and fewer chances to gather around in the future, cos everyone is getting busier and busier with his own stuff.

To be continue...

At home, finally...

Waking up 5am in the morning for my nature call, i decided to continue my bizarre dream at first but the the mattress was really uncomfortable. I need time to get used to it.

This is my 3rd day at home...

Characteristics of Architecture Students...

To understand architecture students better, I got an interesting post (extracted from Adian's blog). Sentences in bold are the characteristics of architecture students. Sentences in italic are my comments.

Here we go...

The alarm clock tells you when to go to sleep
Not for me. Sometimes it doesn't work at all.

You're not ashamed of drooling in class anymore
I do this since form 6 still practising it now.

You know what Superglue tastes like
Not superglue, but UHU.

You've obtained at least one scar during model making
No obvious scar, but quite a few cuts.

You celebrate space and observe your birthday.
Don't understand... not applicable to me i think.

Coffee and Red Bull are tools, not treats.
I prefer teh tarik than coffee, but no Red Bull please (expensive, taste bad, and it works the same).

You feel offended when someone offers you a kilometrico/bic pen.
No comment.

Your diet is made up mostly of instant noodles.
No way! Healthy diet ok...

People are nauseated just by smelling your caffeine breath.
I take coffee during crucial time only...

You are surprised when you see an art piece in your school.
No comment.

You think everything is possible.
Ya, when there is a will, there is a way.

But hours before submission, everything is impossible.

You've fallen asleep in the bathroom.
No just fallen asleep, i even fainted.

You've listened to all your CDs in less than 48 hours.
I get bored listening to the same music even though i've more than 2000 songs in my iTunes library.

Your laptop or pc never shuts down.

You're not seen in public.

You lose your house keys for a week and you don't even notice.

You've brushed your teeth and washed your hair in the faculty's bathroom.
I tried this before, but i don't like to do this.

You take notes and leave messages with a rapidograph and expensive colour markers

You combine breakfast, lunch and dinner into one single meal.
I wish i can do this so that i can become slimmer, haha... Not applicable to me.

You see holidays only as extra sleeping time or time to redo your work.

You've got more photographs of references ie drains, roof structures, windows, than of actual people.
I do have these photos but i will delete them after each semester.

You can live without human contact, food or daylight, but if you can't print it's chaos.

When you're being shown pictures of a trip, you ask about the human scale, the lighting, taken the camera model bla bla bla.
Ya, part of the topic.

You can use Photoshop, Illustrator and make a web page, but you don't know how to use Excel.
Luckily i know some basic skills in Excel.

You refer to great designers (dead or alive) by their first name as if you knew them(Frank, Corbu,Mies, Norman).
In full name, i call them.

You buy 50 dollars worth of magazines that you haven't read yet.

Your romantic interest/boyfriend/girlfriend does not mean anything to you whilst in the studio.
I don't agree.

You can tell what time it is by the smell of your breath.
Oh no, disgusting!

You will forget what is the meaning of sleeping.
Sleeping is very important to me but sometimes i just don't have the chance to appreciate the real meaning of sleeping.

You can memorize pictures in a split second but it takes you days to memorize a paragraph.
I hate memorising things esp notes for exam. Graphic is the other way round.

You may even appear emotionally retarded when out of ideas.
I will try to control myself by not behaving explosively. So i make myself alone. I explored tasik kejut at 3am. I walked to Dewan Bestari and looked into the dewan kuliah through the window at 3am...

Sitting exams mean nothing to you. Studying is no longer a priority.
Haha... it depends. Some subjects are totally a waste of time.

Assignments and projects are more important than your life. Late submissions = DEAD.

Going out is not just for fun anymore, but to observe and get ideas.
To observe and get ideas will be my excuse to go out for fun, hahaha...

You drag yourself back to hostel in flip flops, yesterday's shirt & with a sleep deprived expression while others make their way handsomely to morning lectures.
Haih, it is so true! I want to look smart too, but sometimes i'm jsut too tired for that.

You go for a shopping spree for paper, markers, model boards, glues, cutters, pc rams and printer inks.
Those things are always in my list.

When you go to a new place, you tend to stare at the roof for several minutes
Shit! I got this habit.

You don't care if people see you in your scruffiest torn shirt and pyjamas at school. But if there's a formal dinner, you'd be the one competing to look the best.
Formal, YES! Latter, YES!

You don't watch movies at the cinema. You watch them in a minimised window on your pc while you do 3D presentations (or CAD).
Nono, i will just do either one.

I'm what i eat... yummy!
