Low

Feeling kinda bored, so thought I update this website. Well, I have completely wasted my weekend, I meant to look and apply for summer internship jobs this weekend and guess what, i didn't do anything like it.. aiiya.. so bad. Also, I nearly screwed my laptop up, due to a firewall, sygate bugging up... so don't get it ok... also linux wouldn't let me install a driver for my wireless internet, well actually I have no clue how to do it, and now there is a problem writing files to the NTFS drive and the root drive... say permission is deny or something, but have no clue what to do anymore...

Actually, I have been feeling pretty low recently, don't know why, maybe just been stuck at home and refusing to leave the house.. lol.. I have been playing Pro Evolution 5, and I have to say it is a damm good, and damm hard game... but I am loving it at the moment...

What else, erm... don't know anymore, apart from this website... http://www.patmedia.net/marklevinson/cool/cool_illusion.html .. go and have a look, very interesting, good way to kill a few minutes...

Well you can obviously see this is a very quick update, and it is.. so I leave you by saying... HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! Don't eat too many chocies ok, or you will grow very fat.. lol...

Kids!

Hey, quick update. So Ten days since last update, well I have been quite busy... had this coursework to do and it is damm hard and complicated, I hope I done it justice, but not too sure since I am not sure even what I am doing is completely right... argh wish we had tutorial, but oh well who cares...

You know, I was on the train the other day, and because of the school holidays, lots of kids were in the trains, and now they have like gadgets that can play music via built in speakers... ok it isn't a bad ideal I guess, but my god, are they annoying... and especially when they start singing to it.. argh.. not nice to hear, why can't they use headphones for god sakes... oh well trying to impress friends I guess.. I have this, I bet you don't... lol...

Enough of that.. I also got the new Alex Parks album yesterday, haven't really had a chance to hear it yet, so cannot judge if it is any good, and also my brother got the new pro evo game, had a play at it and my god is it hard... hehehe...

Oh yeah, I meant to change the story on what happened at peter's party... if you take a look at the shout box, lap has been explaining what happened.. he didn't punch vadim, but he "dropped" him by accident, so there ya go lap, story changed.. hehehe

Anyway, me gonna get something to eat, haven't eaten today, went to a Morgan and Stanley presentation for internships, and I am quite impress on their student scheme.. so might give them a shot.. anyway.. cya later... oh yeah.. hehe... clocks go back this weekend I think, so no more putting one hour back on the time that I made my post... this post was actually done at 18:49 my time, but 17:49 GMT.. oh well confusing stuff...

Photos

I have spent two days putting the photos up, well not two full days, but it took me two days to do it, and now 300+ photos are now on the site and can be viewed... these incluced my trip to malaysia and also peter's house warming party, so go check it out... Also the book section is updated with my thoughts on a book called, The sad truth about happiness... written by Anne Giardini... so go check out if you have time..

So what have I done over the past week, well college and I can now see that it is getting more difficult.. I got my first piece of work on friday, and it is so confusing.. don't like it, but oh well I have to do it, but lucky that it doesn't go towards the final mark...

I played badminton for the first time this year, but didn't get to play as much as I would have liked... too many people, and also I was force to pay, unlike last year when I cheated the system... but oh well, £20 for two years, WOOHOO..

What else can I say, erm... oh yeah, was watching X-factor over the weekend and I knew these group of individual were good, but I didn't know it was this good.. I have to say by far they are the most talented group of people I have ever seen on a reality TV show, and that beats Fame Academy 2, 2 years ago... which are also amazing... and talking of fame academy, Alex Parks new song comes out soon and also her new album titled, Honesty so that should be a good listen, and taking about music, I found out a new artist called, Missy Higgins which again is a decent listen...

Well, erm.. not sure what to write now, I have to do some cleaning up, dusty lah, and I also have a cold... which means this is going to tire me out...

Pete's Party!

On Friday/Saturday I was at my friend's home warming party... and I won't say it was good but that doesn't describe it.. I will say it was very INTERESTING... The party started out fine with me and a couple of other people turning out first to his place... and before we went we were questioning how big his house was since he was expecting around 40-50 people, and we were told it was a two bedroom house... but my god, his house was amazing... it is so big... his bedroom is like three times the size of mine... his living room can hold a football pitch (well not quite, but you get the picture), and also he has a big garden and a smallish courtyard/square thingy... not bad...

Anyway.. the party was fine for the first few hours... but then it became hected with incidents... first was Lap.. who was I won't say totally pissed... but to the point that he has no care in the world... he was shouting all the time.. spilling stuff, and then when I wasn't in the room... he, I think punch or something and cause a cut on vadim face, above the eye... it wasn't bad ot be honest but it bleed for some time... but that wasn't the end of the excitement...

At around 1am I think.. Farah began to throw up... too much drinking.. but to be honest I didn't see her drink a lot.. but I heard that it was because she drinks quickly... so that may be.. but that isn't the end of it... At around 4am in the morning.. she began to fit and Anthony had to call an ambulance since we were not sure what was happening.. lucky she was alright.. and she soon return to the flat at around 7am in the morning...

Apart from this... the party was great... enjoyed myself.. and I have to say thank you to Peter for inviting me... lol.. Anyway.. I got some photos from this.. actually going to nick it from my friends since I didn't bring my camera... but will try to get it up.. also.. the other photos.. lol still haven't put them up, but I promise it will be soon ok...

Poem...

I heard this poem yesterday on a tv programme... and I thought it was an absolute gem.. but I just found out today that it is the poem that most of us want to be sent to space... if we decide to try and make contact with aliens... well read for yourself and decide if it is worth enough to represent the whole of humanity...

Human Beings, by Adrian Mitchell

look at your hands
your beautiful useful hands
you're not an ape
you're not a parrot
you're not a slow loris
or a smart missile
you're human

not british
not american
not israeli
not palestinian
you're human

not catholic
not protestant
not muslim
not hindu
you're human

we all start human
we end up human
human first
human last
we're human
or we're nothing

nothing but bombs
and poison gas
nothing but guns
and torturers
nothing but slaves
of Greed and War
if we're not human

look at your body
with its amazing systems
of nerve-wires and blood canals
think about your mind
which can think about itself
and the whole universe

look at your face
which can freeze into horror
or melt into love
look at all that life
all that beauty
you're human
they are human
we are human
let's try to be human

dance!


Not bad eh!! Oh yeah.. photos.. well they are on my webserver now... over 250 photos.. but not yet added so you can't see them.. but I will do that pretty soon... the photos actually scared me a bit since after I did it... I was left with only 4MB worth of space on my webserver... but lucky enough I found some redundant data and was able to get another 15MB.. so on that front I was relieved...

Stuff

Hey everybody... I stil haven't manage to get the photos up that I took form malaysia... but I promist that I will get them up as soon as possible... just that I have added another content to my page called the book section

The book section will contain some summaries on the books that I have read... mainly becuase I want to remember the book and how it felt to me at the time, but beware.. don't expect good reviews since the first two that I written are pretty bad... lol

So what have I done in the past week apart from reading books.. well I started my uni.. it isn't too bad but there were so boring... I can't believe how boring the lectures were... ARGH... oh well... management sounds interesting, since we have to pick a product, dissect it and show how it is marketed... ok doesn't sound all that good but come on what do I have to go on...

What else... oh yeah... lol.. I can hear again!!! Woohoo... when my ears were cleared my god, everything was so loud... I couldn't believe it man, things like washing my hands was hurting my ears, the water splashing was so loud... but now I have gotten use to it so that isn't too bad...

Erm.. I can't think of anything else, but check out that book section and tell me what you think about it in the shout box...
