The Comeback

Hey everyone

I know its been a long time since I’ve written on the blog, but I’ve decided to get back into it. Exams got in the way, and then i never really got back into it. Being on a hiatus for so long, i realized how much it made me accountable for my actions and helped me to accomplish and word out my opinions.

Today I am trying to develop some small habits using an app called Lift for Ipod

  • Write Neater. This has been on my goals for almost forever, but now I’m finally giving up on my own way of holding the pen and going for the regular and effcient way. Hmmph
  • Keep my back straighter; not much explanation needed for this one
  • And lastly pay more attention during class, no daydreaming or fidgeting at the time. WORK

What I Want To Do Next Year!

  • Have a closer relationship with God.
  • Write more neatly. My hand writing is atrocious and I will not stand it any longer. I have to write slower and put more effort into it.
  • Become a better man in general, Mentally, Physically and Spiritually.
  • Get A’s on my As-Level IGCSE
  • Loaf less and do my daily essentials such as reading and writing
  • Improve Social Behavior
  • BE MORE CLEAN
  • Spend more time helping people

 

 

Thursday, December 6th, a collection of happenings and thoughts

  • Gave Mr.Sables our surprise gift basket which included crackers, instant coffee, dry packed wudong and hello kitty cup noodle.
  • Learned in biology that due to our brains anatomy my constant flipping of pens is actually hampering my learning and retention 😦
  • After school my friend Marilda and I went to pick up a card for a church friend that is getting married soon
  • I almost bought a moleskine. So close to just giving in and buying it. It was so nice.
  • My friend Marilda, inspired by this wanted a planner as well. We spent a good 15 minutes arguing about which one to buy at the stationary store. She had so many contradicting requests -,-
  • The evening was spent listening to new music, so many mixtapes and albums out there its dizzying.

Tuesday, December 4th, a sloth’s slumber

  • Chinese teacher got angry today, only one person did his homework…(aha! No pronoun concord!)
  • Slept in literature because I read ahead
  • Made a database for another South Indian Company. If there not selling tea its cars, boats, kites…
  • Had basketball practice after school. I swear we relearn the plays every time
  • Unproductive is an understatement for the rest of my day. I’m writing this and I cannot recall what I’ve done. Whoopsie.

Thursday and Friday: A medium sized post

Thursday

Today marks the end of my experiments on shorter more compact daily stories. I tried them Monday to Wednesday with varying results. Generally, I got more likes, which is good.

Days really seem to be flying away. My brother had been on a school trip this week allowing me to make full use of my speakers. He returns tomorrow.

I am having those days where you can do a lot, but you don’t feel like you accomplished anything. You still feel…unproductive, and empty.

Friday

My brother has finally returned from Lijiang! I missed him lots :). He comes in, and after a quick greeting he turns on his computer and plays some dubstep…

Today was more productive than yesterday by a huge margin. I did some math, read and generally felt like I was doing something useful.

School was very relaxed. I only think I had one period of light weight work. The rest of it was just an easing in. We watched game trailers all Chinese, played charades in English and played Dodge ball in P.E. A good start to a laid back weekend.

A quick Wednesday post

  • Finished reading the Hobbit which concludes my summer reading list…three months after it ended. Really enjoyed the fantasy world and setting. J.R Tolkien remains one of my favorite writers
  • Played League of Legends with some buddies for the first time in months
  • A bit de-sensitized to time due to four free periods at school. Got to read some of my articles on Pocket (which was a getting ridiculously long as I just throw stuff on there)
  • Suffice to say, not much happened at school

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday! The week is already half over!

My friend Miguel came back from Hong Kong and got me Pendulum’s In Silico:

I’ve wanted an album from them for a few years now and it felt enthralling to hold it in my hands. Still haven’t finished listening to Cold Play’s Mylo Xyloto completely, but I’ll soon be moving on to Deadmau5’s 4×4=12. I also moved my dads old Bose radio into my room, making it that much more homely-er. Giving up on learning 50 Cent’s My buddy, I don’t think its my type of rap and I won’t force myself to learn it. Here it is if your interested:

Tuesday

Today after school my friend Miguel and I where forced to attend a Parent-Student Association (PSA for short) meeting. I spent a few hours in Taipa loitering until the time of the meeting, joining a student council meeting and eating at a sushi parlor.

The meeting was a bit longer then it had to be. Apparently it was the bi-yearly meeting we had arrived for. We had thought it was a short meeting about the Media contest we had joined over summer. They were boring procedures such as bank statements, small speeches and nominations. We finally got it all out-of-the-way and proceeded to the awards. We did not win anything, resulting in a largely wasted evening. The lucky winners got ipad minis. I want an ipad mini. Meh.

Wednesday

My week is losing a bit momentum with yesterday’s meeting and today’s sluggishness. The combination of increasing exhaustion, over burdening and my mom’s suddenly more attractive Ipad has deterred my best efforts to be effective. RALLY!

Novembersst: The First Half the week, slabbed together

Monday

Today in for P.E we played a combination of Netball and football. For netball, you must pass to team mates to get it to the other side of the field. However, the moment the ball touches the floor, it becomes football! Netball goals where 5 points, while football goals worth 2 points.

I always feel a bit helpless in sports (not being as physically gifted as others) but still try to contribute to the team as both an annoying defender and a cheerleader. I loved screaming FOOTBALL every time the ball touched the ground. My team ended up winning despite me scoring a brilliant own goal. It was also because one of my friends kept forgetting that you have to pass the line while playing the netball portion, and threw the ball into the net 4 times.

After a good half an hour of that we moved onto capture the flag. I was able to sneak into the enemy flag area when no one was looking, but never managed to make it out with it.

In the afternoon I got invited by my computer teacher to hear a speaker about Quantum Computing. Didn’t even know that existed 0_0.

The evening was eaten up by AXN. It’s surprising how you can get sucked in. It was great to relax and watch House, The amazing race and Wipeout. Too bad it sidetracked everything else and killed my time…

To my horror, I realized I had broken the chain. I’ve been following a productivity technique called break the chain where you give yourself a tick for everyday you do a task (i.e reading and exercise). I had created a chain three months long, now broken by a single night.
