To Blog or Not to Blog?

... That is the question...

I'm feeling a bit aimless without blogging. :|

Train of thought (crosspost)

I really want to write a coherent LJ post about some personal stuff that happened lately at the moment, but I really can't. My train of thought keeps slipping and ends up branching into multiple and different issues. It's like before I should write this, perhaps I should explain further how it came about, and before writing about how it came about, I should write about before that, and so on...

Is it maybe I keep seeing the big picture that's so hard for me to explain? But then I've been a lousy narrator in most of what I write. So far, the only related thought I could say is that my attention and memory span is so short that I usually forgot the last sentence that I wrote after I've deleted it. It really is out of sight, out of mind, no?

So far the only interesting thing I can mention now is that during a bit of people-watching on the side of the main road (while I was waiting for my mom), I saw some foreign tourists walking around, and then there was a (bit) little old lady who was wearing a pink shirt and carried a pink umbrella. She got up where she was sitting (presumely waiting for the bus), walked up to a lamp post and started to argue with it, as indicated by the gestures of her arms and mouth yapping wide open. That was somewhat weird.

Ah well, I also picked up Gorillaz's second album, Demon Days at Popular Book Store. "Feel Good Inc." and a few other tracks were quite good, but overall the whole album can't really get break through the "just okay" level. I need a few more listens before I can judge with a certain degree of confirmation on this album.

Though at the first listen, I was sort of regretting not getting Maroon 5's album, Songs about Jane instead. Perhaps I might be wrong too.

Here is my list of albums to get, in no order of urgency... :P

Kraftwerk - Minimum-Maximum (don't think it's available in Malaysia yet)
Gorillaz - Gorillaz (saw a version with a bonus AVCD disc, looks good)
Gorillaz - Demon Days (got that, I can safely strike this off now)
Maksim - The Piano Player (saw only Variations Part I&II, I'm getting this one first)
Maroon 5 - Songs about Jane (listened to it through their official site and man, the songs are indeed good)
Enigma - The Cross of Changes (for the first time, I think Enigma has to take the back seat for the moment)
Enigma - Le Roi Est Mort, Vive Le Roi! (ditto here, I'm interested in unheard/unfamiliar stuff for me ears)

And guess what was lurking on the top right hand corner of a CD rack on the wall, and being sold for RM16?

It was the Axel F Crazy Frog single. There were even commercials about it on TV.

Yes, the whole world is doomed now.

(Yes, this post was originally written in LJ, but I'm too lazy to change that sentence. :P)

Sidenote: Blogger's dashboard interface seems to be screwed up for quite some time already. Does someone care???

Obnoxious Classmate

In Form 4 and 5 (or Secondary 4 and 5), I think the most of the folks in my class are really quite close with each other, the only ones who I don't usually mix around and get to know are the girls in this year's class. But then, being neutral and not very familiar is at least way better than getting infamous for being the one person in class who everyone loves to hate.

From the top of my mind, out of the many people that I've met in school, there is only one person who I would gladly kick his ass down a flight of stairs.

Now, this person in class is obviously obnoxious, has the ego the size of a hot air ballon, and is sorely lacking in the friendliness section. In class, he's very nice to the girls, hangs around them quite a lot, but I noticed that he gave me the cold shoulder very often. He acts gay-ish (not that there's any problems with that) and his very high-pitched laughs really makes my skin crawl and have goosebumps. It's that serious.

He inflates his ego by acting as a smart-ass, asks questions that would imply that he's capable in finishing homeworks way faster than the rest of the class, and egad, that laugh, that freaking "scratching nails on a blackboard" laugh that's enough to shatter glass and cause brain haemorrhage. I cringe everytime I hear it.

I don't think it's me who has the problems, since I keep hearing my classmates utter "I hate him" out of annoyance in class. They've mentioned before how annoying he can get in class. I guess that some people really have an aura that makes people like them, and some have an aura that makes people HATE them. Anyways, it's not my business to tell him what to do, start an arguement and blah blah blah. I've got better things to do than to waste my breath talking to him.

I thought I've seen people worse than this, but this really brings the definition for the word "obnoxious" to a brand new level.

When I'm online, my mind is blank.
When I'm offline, the thoughts start to spew in.

Note to self: Keep in mind subjects to blog on, and have some self-motivation.

Past two school days...

Another brief summary of recent events, I hope you haven't passed out from holding your breath waiting for me to get this posted. :P

Last Friday:
- In the first lesson, made a passing remark to my classmate that I hope I wouldn't get called in to get my teeth drilled, seeing the dentist and nurses from the Ministry of Health came to my school.
- Two lessons later, I get called in to get one of my tooth drilled and filled.
- The Malay nurse was quite friendly, she game me a little mirror to hold on and see how it was being drilled and later filled. I gripped the armrest of the chair until it turned white.
- Ended within around 20 minutes, it wasn't so bad after all.
- Proceeded to accidentally bump into at least 3 people that same day. >_<
[- ETA: And my class beat the neighbouring class (5M2) 3-2 at football, even though we had fewer people than them... :P]

- Everyone in my class, and the top three pure science classes skipped the last four lessons because we attended a talk being given on the SPM 1119 English paper. The speaker was actually funny, and he talked about how to NOT fail the paper to getting an A for the paper. It was then I realised that the SPM English paper had a quite low passing mark.
- Talk lasted later than scheduled, everyone rushed back to our classes since the afternoon classes were starting at that moment. During the midst of frantic packing, I realised that my accountings textbook is now missing. >_<
- Another talk is being given tomorrow morning before recess, will be skipping three lessons. :D
