It’s 2 am now so I think I’ll go to bed, but when I come home from seeing an old high school friend later today, I’ll start.
Oh crappity crap crap
2 blog posts this month, what a disgrace!
I suppose I can do a meta-thing and have a look at why I haven’t been blogging.
It hasn’t been because I haven’t been online. I’m sure if you check out my Tumblr (link at the side), you’ll see I’ve been spending copious amounts of time tanning by my laptop light.
And it hasn’t been because I haven’t done shit all in the past month but tanning by my laptop light because a lot did happen, but I think…
For some reason I don’t deem my life interesting enough to document anymore. I mean, looking back, I used to write about getting coffee after school. But now I don’t even mention that I had an assessment performance for which I didn’t do so well.
Alright so here it is.
On Wednesday past, I had an assessment performance for Script for Performance. I dragged loads of uni friends along so basically on entire wall of the joint was occupied by my Asian friends – not many Asians doing that subject, as you can imagine.
My script, I admit, was shoddy, but I relied on my ability to project my voice to carry me through. I got laughs where I wanted laughs, but my tutor, the sneaky man, saw past my gimmicks and told me I needed to polish up my style and structure.
So I went home and reworked the entire script, starting from the style, going along the structure, the delivery, and even the overall tone.
Perhaps he’ll be proud of me.
Other events that happened was my oral presentation for Hollywood and Entertainment, where I had to give a presentation on the comic book aesthetic in film in regards to Scott Pilgrim. I used my Tumblr as a way to present my work which went better than normal.
I don’t think the essay that I wrote for it was very decent, though.
Apart from uni, I suppose I’m correct in saying not much has been exciting in ways of social life. Everyone’s bunkering down for end of Semester assessments and exams, and being 2nd years, people are actually caring (I am too, just not as obviously. I have a reputation of bad-assery to uphold). I’ve made more and more friends at work which is always a bonus…until they realize how strange I am and shifts become awkward.
Looking forward to the winter holidays, not only because I have my 20th birthday coming up (well this is just terrifying), but because I can sleep in and watch loads of TV basking in the glory of my laptop light.
P.S. Next month marks the coming of winter, and so song name titles will make its appearance again.
P.P.S. I will try to find another 30 day writing challenge or whatnot to up my count and continue my writing.
P.P.P.S. After the assessment date of the script, I’ll post it up here for y’all to enjoy.
Call This A Prelude To A Lifetime Of You

My Semester 2 subject Culture, Media and Everyday Life requires me to keep this blog for a semester, where I write about my thoughts on the subject. It actually means I have to write there rather often. It’s like the Yr 11 English assignment all over again.
Basically, the blog is so fantastically named The Life And Laughs Of This Uni Assignment, and I have linked this blog to that blog. I will link that blog to this blog too, but I don’t think you can comment anonymously. Still, if you read something that got your interest, you can always just comment me here, or leave a comment on my Formspring, and I will answer it in that blog.
This juggle act wasn’t actually my choice, but hey.
Now, in the lecture today the teacher was trying to tell us about what to do, and in her curious haste, Mai posted a blog post titled “3:56PM on a lazy Monday afternoon“, which was during the lecture. Right after she posted it, the lecturer went on the homepage Dashboard where all the posts can be seen, and remarked “oh look we have the latest post here…which…was posted a few minutes ago. Huh, I wonder if someone was posting during this lecture.” At this point, Mai was cowering in embarrassment while the rest of us around her shook with silent laughter. I wish, oh I wished the lecturer would click into the post, where Mai wrote “I may or may not be blogging during a lecture”, but that didn’t happen.
As a result, though, Mai is getting insane blog hits and she hasn’t written anything. And the amount of interaction and hits we receive go towards how well our marks are at the end of the semester.
I’d like to think that I have an advantage in this, because I already am used to blogging, but hey, we’ll see.
So, by all means, help me and go to that blog often!
P.S. Unfortunately the blog wouldn’t show my name as Alex…
Time flu…ahem flew…
I procrastinated rather guiltily last night, reading through my old blog posts instead of doing Legal homework. Soon it would be 1 year since I started blogging frequently.
I was reading through some of the first ones I wrote when I first started. There was that once when BRuCE sat outside the crepe place in the wind laughing loudly and having fun together. Or that time in assembly last year when Dani and I sat together and wondered at how there were only 6 weeks of school left…for Yr 11. And yet here I am now.
Relived Sale all over again. Every word brought back the amazing moments that we had in Sale, the drinking contest that Julia lost, Jen’s mozzie bite through the jeans…
I was going to relive those first few weeks of holidays too, the few days I spent with Bianca. But it all became too nostalgic. The knowledge of how close I am to the next big step in my life…
Well, Term 3 starts tomorrow. It’s my final full term ever. Soon I’ll be blogging about how we’re six weeks away from ACTUALLY graduating.
