A late post but last friday was one of the most fun I had in ages. I probably feel this way because the past 4 weeks of clinical has been incredibly draining so it was great to just be able to let loose that particular friday.

After about 3 yrs I've finally left O.D. No more having to put up with customer's unreasonable demands, no more trying to coax them into buying products (that even myself don't believe in) and no more having to deal with late orders and responding to irate customers.

At the same time, after all these years, you do grow familiar with the environment so of course, there is a slight sadness that comes with leaving the place. I remember when I first came to the store for a trial - and subsequently hired (because by luck, they were low on staff) and had ended up staying for all this time. Had been there to witness the countless changes in management and staff. But in all, the company had been really good to me and it was, I'd have to say, my first proper professional job.

Everyone made an effort to see me off today which I thought that alone, was really nice of them. But no, they even brought cakes, chocolates and presents - incredibly wonderful. 

While working my last shift today, i kept thinking 'wow, this is the last time I'll be doing this -ever'.

Having said that, I'm looking forward to moving forth and onto bigger things.

Goodbye O.D!!

As soon as I saw the promotional poster hung on this bridge that we always drive by to get home a few weeks ago, I think I peed a little by just reading the cast names.

Leonardo Dicaprio. Joseph Gordon Levitt. Marion Cottilard. Ken Wantanabe. Cillian Murphy. Michael Caine. Ellen Page.

OMFG. I can't remember the last time there was such a truly great ensemble cast (well maybe Ocean's Eleven- but it was pretty forgettable).

And then I found out the person at the helm Christopher Nolan. I WAS SOLD.

Movie buffs might gasp at the very thought and association but I really think he is the next Stanley Kubrick. He's a very clever film-maker, who adhers to alot of film-noir traditions. And it works. I've watch The Prestige, BB and the Darknight, all of which I'd walked away and thought my $15 was well spent.

And then only recently, I had finally picked up Memento after seeing it pop up in everyone's must-watch movie lists and I was left reeling. Just at the sheer brilliance of it's concept and the way the entire film was crafted. I think I must've spent a good one-two hours thinking about the movie until my head started to throb.

No way would I declare myself a total movie elitist. I actually enjoy the fluffy, non-substance romance crap (as my sister constantly likes to reminds me) but now and then, I love a good movie. One that makes you think and does not assume it's audience is dumb and proceeds to lay the entire thing out for the viewer to munch on in one viewing. I think that's why I ended up liking Memento so much.

So naturally, I walked in the movie theaters yesterday with HIGH expectations. Especially with all the hype that was (still is) building around it. And it delivered. By the end of the movie, I think the audience (myself included) actually felt mentally exhausted as they dragged themselves out the theater.

What a great movie experience. I'm certain it'll become a classic.

So it's that Christmas-equivalent time of the year again where us shopaholics proceed to empty out every last penny we have to exercise our ferocious and self indulgent shopping behaviours: *drumroll cue* the grand half yearly sales!

Just when I was steadily paying off my visa card, I've found myself back to square one. Been doing so much retail therapy of the late, I've resorted to eating breadsticks for lunch because I simply gots no money for the month to buy proper food...nooo... :'(
I wanna be a billionaire....Collapse )

It's this point in time that I should feel very screwed. Very screwed at the realisation that I have not understood a single thing taught during this entire semester.  But after downing 1.5 cans of V energy drinks and substituting 4 packet of chips and an orange  for breakfast+lunch, I'm feeling much too groggy, too nauseated to care.

It's 8 right now. The plan is to bask in my glorious physics notes for another 8 hrs in hopes that my technique of mindless memorizing and regurgitation will once again, pull me through. Then at 4, if my brain hasn't decided to completely switch off, I will proceed to watch the socceroos vs. germany match (though we all know the outcome of that one!). I shall then sleep for 2 hrs and start the cycle all over again.

:). feelin' good.
