2010, thanks for the memories ♥

It is the 31st of December, the last day of 2010. I fully meant to go to bed, but it just suddenly hit me that I haven't done a recap post of 2010 the way I did for 2009, and I just really feel like I need to. And I know I won't have the time when I wake up later on, so I guess I'll do it now. =)


I really don't wanna do a detailed post. So it shall be a short summary of what happened.


  • I turned 19 on January 27th 2010
  • Attended follow-up camp in The Farm, and it was awesome
  • Camped out in Taylor's library and studied like a lunatic
  • Graduated from A-Levels
  • Stoned my life away for 3 months
  • Had a stint of hair-cutting because I was constantly bored
  • Got my heart almost broken again
  • Met my cousins whom I haven seen in 5 years
  • Had an awesome weekend at Summerset
  • Sent friends off because they were going away to study
  • Welcomed a new phase of my life, university.
  • Faith, Friendship and Freedom with Martin Jalleh and the HFC Youths.
  • Went for Paramore's concert
  • Became a facilitator for Love & Life 2010

All in all, I think it was an awesome year. There were the downs, like not getting straight As in A-Levels, or being bored dead before uni started, but the year was made awesome by my college friends, my uni friends, my family and "family", my BFFs and of course my LNL family. I was pulled in every direction this year, confused in what to study for degree, doubting myself about facilitating, falling for a guy. But nonetheless, I feel like everything happened for a reason, and I learnt a lot this year, and I really grew.

Here's a few things that I learnt and that really struck me for this year, as I'm typing this:

  1. It makes a big difference when you make a difference in someone else's life. When they tell you that you made a difference and that you helped them, the feeling really is indescribable. That's what facilitating for LnL 2010 taught me.
  2. When you want to do something, set your mind to it whole-heartedly. If you keep doubting yourself, you'll feel bad all the time, and things will never get done. Believe that you can do it, and you will be able to.
  3. Tell the people you love that you love them everyday. =) It makes people feel special and you really could be brightening up someone's day, no harm done in fact.
  4. No one can get you down if you don't allow them to. Stay positive, and optimistic and you'll be able to get by any storm, just have faith.
  5. We fall and we get broken but what matters is standing up and trying to fight and fix things again.
  6. Every minute spent bonding with a friend is never wasted, because you never know how much of a difference you could be making in their lives.
  7. It makes a difference to me when people say I've been a good friend and that I've always been there for them, cuz it proves to myself that I'm doing something right and I'm actually a good friend. =)
Ok getting a little wordy, but I just felt like I had to say all that. Someday if I forget all this, I could come back here and read them. 2010 was a year that made a real difference to me, one that I will treasure in my heart always. I only hope that 2011 will be even more awesome. But before 2011 comes, a trip down memory lane. ♥

No more domain. For real.

HELLO people in case you didn't notice right, my blog no longer says amandajanelle.com. It now says
amandajanellequah.blogspot.com. 

Yeah my domain has officially expired. Booo me. Anyway, I really really wanna Tumblr now cuz I'm bored and I'm taking a well-deserved break from my assignment but Tumblr is down. AGAIN. Finished my essay and now gotta get started on my lab report. Sucks to be me.

On a much much brighter note, Love and Life 2010 is in 3 days people!! I'll be gone for a week. Really looking forward to it, after all the hardwork and stuff. Plus plus, BFF Melissa Ong is attending it this year. =) So excited. But arghhh, some work not done as well for L&L. Must get it all done soon. Wednesday gotta start packing. I still do NOT have an outfit for Malam Ria. Hmmm.

Ok, nothing much to ramble on about anymore. I am now going to go and get started on my lab report. Nerd nerd nerd me. Weeeeeeee!! (not) =.=

No more domain? =(

It's December darlings!! Christmas!! And and, sadly, it also means that my domain is gonna expire, and since I decided not to buy it back again, come Dec 6th I'll have to revert back to that irritating blogspot. Hmmmphhh. Now I'm really thinking I should go buy my domain again. =( So sad. 

And anyway, I ended my November with some awesomeness. It was a fusion of bad and good. Bad cuz I was in a car accident. Both my friends banged into each other's car and daaaamn it was bad la k. All cuz of a stupid cow. I'm tired of explaining what happened. Here's some pictures k. LOL.

Vivian's car.

Elynn's car.

And the reason I say it was good cuz after the accident I went to Curve/Ikea/Ikano with the "family", watch Rapunzel, had meatballs. But no pictures. LOL. So that was how my November ended. And now it's December. GOSH!!  Soon it'll be 2011. Someone slow time down please.

Just A Dream.


We were alone in the courtyard. 
I was upset and crying.
You didn’t know what to do.
We were surrounded by silence.
You kept asking what was wrong but I kept silent still.
Finally I couldn’t take it and I walked off.
You ran after me, and pulled me back.
I shouted and told you to let go.
You said you never will, until I told you what was wrong.
Finally I relented, and yelled, 
“The problem is that you’ll never like me the way you like her. I like you, get it? And it sucks seeing you liking her, and not me!”
I yanked my hand hard, and ran off.
This time, you ran after me while shouting.
You caught up to me and pulled me close to you.
I tried to break free but couldn’t.
You looked right into my eyes, and said,
“I did all that, just to see how you would react. You’re cute when you’re jealous. She’s aware I don’t like her, you can ask her. You’re the one I like. I just needed to know if you like me too, and it’s quite obvious that you do now.”
You smiled at me, I stared at you in disbelief.
You pulled me in to hug me as you whisper, “You’re the one, believe me.”
And that’s when I opened my eyes, and realised it was only just a dream.

.............
(I got inspired when I was taking a shower. Dead serious. LOL.)

Ok, a little bit freaky.

I was facebooking, as always, and I came across this personality test, and so I decided to do it for fun. And the results kinda freaked me out a bit, cuz for some weird reason I actually think it's really accurate. I don't know. But anyway here it is. The results I mean. Actually no, it's not TOTALLY accurate. But still, accurate enough la. But really I'm not practical. Haha.




Your view on yourself:
You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:
You are not looking merely for a girl/boyfriend - you are looking for your life partner. Perhaps you should be more open-minded about who you spend time with. The person you are looking for might hide their charm under their exterior.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:
You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you meet that person.

The seriousness of your love:
You are very serious about relationships and aren't interested in wasting time with people you don't really like. If you meet the right person, you will fall deeply and beautifully in love.

Your views on education
Education is very important in life. You want to study hard and learn as much as you can.

The right job for you:
You're a practical person and will choose a secure job with a steady income. Knowing what you like to do is important. Find a regular job doing just that and you'll be set for life.

How do you view success:
You are afraid of failure and scared to have a go at the career you would like to have in case you don't succeed. Don't give up when you haven't yet even started! Be courageous.


What are you most afraid of:
You are concerned about your image and the way others see you. This means that you try very hard to be accepted by other people. It's time for you to believe in who you are, not what you wear.


Who is your true self:
You are full of energy and confidence. You are unpredictable, with moods changing as quickly as an ocean. You might occasionally be calm and still, but never for long.


Here's the link if you wanna try the test for yourself. =)

PsychSoc Ice Breaking Night.

In case you didn't know, PsychSoc means Psychology Society. =) LOL. And yes a bit slow but we finally had our ice breaking night, after uni started for ermm, almost 2 months. Haha. It was a fun fun night really. I didn't expect to have so much fun or to laugh so much. Goes to show good things sometimes happen when you least expect them to.


The food was errr, well it was nothing fantastic really. But whatever it was edible la, just really oily. After an uneventful dinner where we waited for Elynn to arrive, the games started and it was charades! My specialty k. LOL. (perasan sial) We were told to break into groups and naturally all the first year psych students (us) ended up in a team. We were the smallest, youngest group. =)


We didn't win the charades but we caught up towards the end and got second kay! Awesome or not? And we had like the shortest time taken to answer. One second. EPIC!! Then it was over and a lot of people left but we stayed back and ate our prize (twisties and cheezels) and that's when Bryan wanted to play games, so we ended up playing Dare or Dare. =) 


Can't say much but it was crazily funny and we did lots of stupid stuff. Elynn was high on something the WHOLE night and I fed off her craziness and went all crazy laughing shouting as well. When I left, those crazy people were heading to Huey Tyan's room for some "drinks". HAHA. I don't have the photos from Dare or Dare with me yet, but I do have some decent ones so just see those first la k. =)



Us in the parking lot. Way WAY before the event.


Xing Yeing taking a pic of the pic where me and Ah Girl camwhored. =)


Mrs. Drugs and me. HAHA. (inside joke)


Legs legs legs. =) (ohh and my new baby blue flats!)


Camera models! *I heart this pic*

Boo Tumblr

I wanted to go and post a short celebratory post over there but it just HAD to play games with me. Tumblr can be so screwed up sometimes. Hence I have to come here, and do that short meaningless post. LOL. I'm done with my tutorial essay outline! TADAAAAAH!


Now I can get some fun stuff going on. Heading to uni in about an hour, for Frisbee and also for PSYCHSOC's ice-breaking night. I am very well supposed to be packing but oh whatever. I can do all that in a rush. Procrastination is my best skill. =) I might just blog about the ice breaking night later on tonight if I'm not too tired and if I have pictures. We'll see. Gtg now!


P/S: craving for Toffee Nut Frap from Starbucks. Anyone?

Never expected.

A lot of things happen when we don't expect it, it could be good it could be bad. I mean, good in a sense that we might be waiting for something for so long and it doesn't come and when we finally give up, it comes to us. But bad in a sense that we assume we'll always have it all with us. Then comes one day when someone is taken away from us. 





Guess it just kinda reminds us that we really gotta appreciate all that we have, and not take things for granted. We never, NEVER know when we'll lose it someday.

Oh joy! LOOK!

Yeah such JOY!! It's me. Again. Here to blog without going MIA for a week plus. Joy, no? LOL. Ok sorry. I'm going crazy. And I'm really just bored. Hence the camwhoring session with my webcam. I swear I hardly ever do this. Only when I'm really really bored. Like now.


Ohh look it's you. Reading my blog. LOL.


I really should get started on my tutorial work, but I'm lazy lazy lazy! Plus it's just an essay outline, can't be all that hard to do right? (Self defense mechanism at work right there. Haha.) I'll do it tomorrow, and continue whatever I can't finish on Monday. =) Miss Procrastination at work again. Seriously AmandaJanelle of next year, if you have to sit for your exam and you realise you don't know anything, kindly please don't blame me. Blame Miss Procrastination. LOL.

On a randomer, nothing-to-do-with-this-post-but-that's-the-whole-point-of-such-a-random-post note, been chatting with Kah Vong these past few days. For some weird weird reason I feel like he's a lot NICER to me these days, but he said same only. So I don't know la k. But anyway,

I MISS YOU KAH VONG!!


And I know you miss me too. HEH! =)

And ok I'm running out of things to say on my blog. Can't exactly keep blogging about nothing can I? Takes skill alright, and I only have so much of crapping skills. LOL. SO I guess that's it. Till my next random post when I'm bored. =) Byeeeeeeee!


In case you still cannot see from my previous posts, I have a side swept fringe alright! (Ok I know you've already seen the fringe I'm just bored and I'm vain and I like taking pictures of myself. =D)

All things Wednesday. (10/11/10)

I spent the say stoning, wasting time and literally doing absolutely nothing most of the time. I really don't know why. Class in the morning, neuroscience. And I swear I was so super freaked out by my lecturer. He kinda just walked the whole class, talking. And then there was this one point he walked and explained all while smiling at me, like he was going to ask me some question. Scary sial. My neuroscience class gives my goosebumps at times. 


I stoned all through lunch, I swear. I sat there and ate my food, and once I finished eating I probably talked and laughed a while. Then we all just sat there, some with their laptops. I kinda just dropped my head on the table and took a rest. Yes on the cafe table, whatever I don't care, I'm cool like that. =D Went to Applied class half an hour early cuz we were too bored. Ahh the wonders of a lazy week, such an opposite compared to the previous one.


I slept in Applied a while, as I always do. LOL. After Applied I made Chuan Yang and Daniel help Elynn and me out in our experiment. Haha. They love our Psych Comp Lab, cuz its isolated and secluded and quiet with no one there. Mmmm hmmm, I hear you, I love that lab too! After that we all got hungry, so Daniel, Chuan Yang and friends decided to bring us go makan, us being Xing Yeing, Elynn, Ah Girl and me. Went to vegetarian shop, 2 bucks oni. So epic. 


BUT BUT BUT, I really shouldn't have eaten a full meal before salsa class. Should NOT have listened to Chuan Yang, about vegetables digesting fast. NOT true alright. I went to salsa with a full stomach, and as you can guess, salsa is all about turning, spinning and twirling for the girls. I honestly didn't feel good at all, and I couldnt get all my turns right either. Bloody inside turn, I'll nail you before the next salsa class, damn it. I refuse to believe that I will be beaten by some spinning turning move, hmmphh.


And on the way back after salsa, Elynn and I were talking bout how guys and girls are so different. And I came up with this conclusion. Girls are complicated, we really are. (Don't try to deny this girls, you know it's true.) Guys on the other had, are very simple creatures. Dear girls, the reason we never understand guys although they're so simple, is cuz in our complicatedness, we cannot understand simplicity. Hence their simplicity becomes complicated to us, as how we are definitely complicated to them. LOL. tadaaahhhh!



Elynn and me. Yellow power! =)




Yeah that's what we talked about in the car. Then Elynn dropped me in Mahkota and I went for dad's birthday dinner. My daddy is 49 now!! It was a fun night, with lotsa good food, and also drinks. Pictures are not uploaded yet. So none for this post. haha. 


Ok I guess that's it. All things Wednesday done! Sorry for the long wordy post. =D

Girls' Day Out!

So on Tuesday I went out with Xing Yeing, Vivian and Ah Girl. Elynn was supposed to go with us too but she went and meet her friend who just finished exam. =( Either way, it was an awesome day out. We watched Takers. Spoiler alert, if you keep reading. lol.



I loved the show. The story line and plot were interesting. And mmm, Hayden Christensen makes for awesome eye candy. =) So sad he died though. All of us were like, "OMG why must he die, can't they kill someone else instead?" We were so funny. haha.

I bought new shoes too! 2 new pair of flats from Cotton On. I am loving loving my new shoes. =) One open-toed black flats, and another light blue ballet flats. I would show you a picture of them but I'm just way too lazy to take a picture. Haha. Deal with my laziness alright.

It was a fun fun day. We spent the day talking and laughing, and eating nonstop too. (My plans of losing weight just keep failing each and everytime =.=) And of course we took lots of pictures too! What's a day out without any pictures right? =) So here you go, some pictures. 


Funny faces. =)


Elevator picture is a must in Gardens. LOL.


Us in the cinema. I look stupid with specs as always. =.=


Posing while shopping. My fav pic because my legs look so slim. Hehe. =)


Nasi Lemak in Madam Kwan's for dinner.

That wraps up my girls' dat out post. Many many more posts to come. Hmmm. Toodles for now.

All sorts of weird.

So my blog is officially dead and I really don't even know how to revive it now. As much as I'd love to fill my blog with random lines and quotes everyday, I really don't have the time to do that. Last week was hell man. My very first taste of a crazy week in uni. I'm expecting more to come. I had presentation, lab report and essay all to do last week. The torture will officially be over tomorrow when I hand in my essay. And then I get a week of peace. Ahhh bliss.



So anyway forget about Paramore and HFC Youth Camp la. As epic as these 2 events were, I just don't have to mood and time to blog now. Instead I wanna blog bout today.Today I watched 2 movies with my sis. Totally unplanned but yeah, we watched:






You Again 


 Life As We Know It

Both are quite good shows to me, funny enough without being lame, with good meaning and moral values to the story too. I prefer "Life As We Know It" though. =) I cried at one part in "Life As We Know It", I really don't know what's with me these days, but I just seem to cry at every rom com I watch. Oohhh and Josh Duhamel is hot k. LOL.

Anyway, confused bout my blog post title? Don't be. I'll explain it now. Today really was just, all sorts of weird to me. Watching "Life As We Know It" kinda hit me somewhere in that insecure, scared little heart of mine. Gosh I feel stupid everytime I say this, but I was just wondering what if, I never find that person to share my life with. And other than that, a line Katherine Heigl said stabbed my so hard k. I forgot exactly what was it, but it's along the lines of "Loving someone who doesn't love me back". I feel that. Really.

I feel weird la really. I'm wondering if I'll ever meet someone new, but other than that, I'm missing someone I really shouldn't be missing. And to top that off, I kinda feel like I've been neglecting some of my friends due to my crazy schedule. I know maybe it might not have been my fault but that doesn't mean that I don't feel like crap because of it. And in addition to all these nonsense, something CY said maybe 2 or 3 weeks ago has been running through my mind all day. In a nutshell, he basically said that he realised once friends moves overseas and all, sooner or later we just run out of things to talk to them about. I didn't really think about it when he said it, but now I realised it's so true and it really is happening to me. =(

Sigh it's a lot of stuff right now. I just wanna clear my mind of everything. That would mean talking to someone but I honestly can't think of a right person to talk to. I really really wanna talk to Phoeb but she got exam tomorrow and I don't wanna disturb her. Other than her, I cant think of anyone else to talk to. Lis, Renu and Naim maybe but they ALL have exams as well. Hate our messed up different uni schedules. 

Ahh blekkk at least I'm going uni tomorrow. I get to see the girls, they'll put a smile on my face I'm sure. I miss them already, not seeing them for the weekend.


Jeans skirt, pink top and black ribbon day. *loves*

P/s: Someone posted on facebook as their status, "What would you do if you were not afraid?" Sighhh ahhh the things I would do. I wish I wish I was not afraid. =(

P/p/s: I cut a side-swept fringe. =) You can't see it clearly in the photo above. So here's another photo that you CAN see. haha.

Seeeeeee the fringe? =) I haven't had one in 10 years. (VY and me during Viva La Vida night)

Procrastination.

Yeah I'm going through a phase of extreme procrastination. So I'm supposed to have already blogged about Paramore and Youth Camp. BUT, I feel super lazy and I just don't feel like uploading any pictures whatsoever. So I guess that has to wait a bit more. LOL. Sorry if you're waiting for those posts. Wait longer aite? haha.


Anywaaaaay, I really need to get my act together. I have a test tomorrow, a lab report due in a week, an essay due in one and a half weeks and LnL deco due in about 2 weeks. I could kill myself. There is so much to do! Sighhhh. I can totally foresee what will happen. I'm going to keep procrastinating, and sooner or later my sleep is going to suffer. I'll be using all my sleeping time to complete these things I need to do. =/


I'm getting all these weird feelings again. Sometimes I really don't know what the hell is wrong with me and why do I feel the way I do, but I just do. Seriously, I have to finish reading that book that Edmund aka Boss lent me so so long ago. Maybe after reading that I will fully understand why I'm so screwed up. Haha. And this is all said in a cynical, whatever tone. Proves that something is definitely wrong with me.


On a lighter note, here's a pic of me on the "runway" from Psych Night. It was fun really. haha.



Excuse my errr, noobness la k. LOL. But I like this picture. =)

And please if you have 7 minutes to spare, go and watch this video. I'm not going to post the video here la k, I have better things to do. I'll give you the link, you make sure you watch it alright. I cried watching it. =(



Ok ciao readers I need to go take a bath and study for my test tomorrow. =(
