I don't know about anti-Christ believers and cults, but technically we DON'T do anything evil.
Did I tell you that we normally shop at the Hypermarket at 11-nish at night? That is why it is so empty. *I love 24 hours hypermarkets!!! :)
*I wish I'm a kid*Pumpkins for sale
LynN & Tired Mike
*This is dedicated to Obsessed-with-Pink-XIAXUE and her Princess Bedroom (if she ever comes to my blog, which I highly doubt so)
I miss Hot Milo.
I HAVE A LAST MINUTE AUDITION AT UNI AT 10PM

I don't know why but I AM overeating and I don't know what I am not doing anything about it. *sigh*
Good news is, I got an A for my Vocal and Ballet Theory MidTerm and a BA for my Ballet Practical.
I am pretty happy with the results but yeah.. those are the least of my worries.
I am just waiting for my Aural Comprehension results.
My hearing skills *especially for rhytmn* sucks big time.
As long as I pass that paper, I am happy.
I am not expecting for an A for that.
On a random note..
A Short History of Medicine
"Here, eat this root"
"That root is heathen, say this prayer."
"That prayer is superstition, drink this potion."
"That potion is snake oil, swallow this pill."
"That pill is ineffective, take this antibiotic."
"That antibiotic is artificial. Here eat this root."
How ironic is that?
Everyone is going back to the basics now.
The more advanced we get, the more we long for simplicity.
Its like back home in Malaysia, seems like more and more people are enjoying old town kopitiams and organic foods.
Old school curry noodles, roti bakar, Kopi O, Char Kuey Teow and etc.
Now that I am in USA, we practically take ABC porridge at least once a week.
Just last week itself we had ABC porridge two days in a row!
how cool is that?

Yes. Maybe some of you have heard that I have cut my hair.
I've got fringe now and its short.
Lynn cut it for me yesterday when I told her I am bored with my hairstyle.
PLUS, halloween is coming so...... I want to look different.
I know this is an ugly picture of me but.... hah! It is the only picture I have taken since my hair cut because my camera went out of battery and there is something wrong with my handphone camera.
Welcome to Lala Land!
*but since I am in the United States there is no such thing*
My eye bags are getting bigger and bigger day by day.......... weee*
Looks like I don't need a Halloween Costume already.

we don't really own anything;
What is this competition we feel then,
before we go one at a time through the same gate?
Life is so simple yet complicated.
Sometimes I wonder why are we placed on this earth to suffer?
Some people enjoyed life, others had to go through so much.
If God loved us so much, why can't we go straight up to heaven and be with Him?
Despite all we have on earth; our riches, our friends, our career, our families, and etc.
What would we have left after we're gone from earth?
What would heaven be? What would hell be?Life is so simple, yet complicated.
There was a Tornado warning yesterday night.
I was at Uni watching the multimedia dance show called sexyteenloveidol.net
You can actually cheack that website out.
Anyway, before the show started, one of the dance professors came up front and said that there was a tornado warning and IF ANYTHING happens, we should run out to the Tornado safe area.
So yes, I knew there was a warning but its US of AMERICA here so I thought,
"Hey, they have like police and ambulances everywhere and anytime a little tiny thing happens so they would just wanna play safe. Nothing bad is going to happen lah"
So yes, after the show it rained and thank God my friend sent me home.
We were suppose to go to Tortilla Flats after that for Salsa but then everyone said that the tornado siren rang not long ago. AND we decided to stay home :(
So much for a after Midterm celebration
Anyways, Mike n Maha came over and we watched a 2006 movie titled Gridiron Gang featuring The Rock
T'was a great movie plus it was even better because it was based on a true story.
You guys should check it out.
Back to the tornado story.
I went to class today and spoke to my friend about it.
He said that the tornado was actually only 5 minutes away from our area and it actually disrupted the electricity at my friend's place
*which was only less than 2 miles from my place*
I came home and Carmen said that Kalamazoo was hit very badly by a Tornado in the 80's and people are worried that it is going to happen again since the weather changes like crazy here.
Pretty scary huh.
What if the Tornado hits us!?!?!?!
Thank God it weakened before reaching us yesterday night.

So I have to wait for the weekend to check my Midterm results.
Music Aural Comprehension was BAD :(
I don't have no ear for music dictation.
My rhythm is bad, my melodic skill ain't that good either... I don't know how but I'll be darn happy to just pass this paper! But Guess what?!
I need to get 79% out of 100% to pass!
*what on earth!*
But besides that Vocal was great, Ballet was great, Voice and Movement was Good, and Musical Theatre History was okay.
So yeah.. I know I won't get a 4.0 cGPA this semester because of Aural Comprehention but what the heck... I just want to pass this subject!!!
Besides the entire day of exams, I had a so-called Acting-in-front-of-everybody in my acting class today. My scene was on the Chekov play called The Three Sisters. Well, I had good feedback. My professor said that I was genuine with my acting and he really felt my presence on stage. I was acting as one of the sisters in the play who was so stressed, who even thought about commiting suicide, who is going ballistic because everything in her life is going topsy turvy. Unfortunately, I can't cry.
I think I have lost my tearbuds and I can't freaking cry!
I use to be vulnerable and I could excess my emotions easily.
Well apparently, I think I left it in Malaysia, under my comforter or something.
Looks like I have to start from square one.
Oh well, I'm pretty thankful that my Professor gave us the few very demanding scenes to work on. At least I can learn more right?
Anyway, I have decided on the subjects that I am going to take next semester.
Its going to be 16 credit hours plus 300 total hours of Practicum
*crap that'll be 20 hours a week without getting paid!*
The sad thing about that is its going to be winter so travelling to Uni frequently would be a problem.
Oh well, good news is that I am taking 2 Jazz Classes so I don't have to worry about getting to fat over the winter. LoL
*cross my fingers hopefully*
Anyway, I will be auditioning for two Musicals for Next semester.
Wish me luck!!!!!!!! :)
On a random note, Western Michigan University's Fine Arts Department was awarded for the Best Fine Arts Program in the State. In conjunction to that, the governor is going to send someone to our class tomorrow to video tape our Voice and Movement Class.
I'm so honored!
Till then, assignments assignments assignments!

Darn good food. Daing can cook so well!!!! Yeah, so on that day I had my breakfast, brunch, lunch, tea and dinner at one shot. It was the only super filling meal I had and it was DARN FREAKING GOOD!!!!!!!
I want more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sambal Sambal!!!!!
Gimmie gimmie gimmie more!
Oh yes, so I have completed 2 of my Midterms yesterday and today. I've got three more to go tomorrow and one more on Monday then I am free of exams for awhile. :) One thing I realized today is that I have horrible horrible horrible grammar and I suck at English so badly that I seriously think that I need English lessons. I need a writing partner. :(
On the other hand, Halloween is coming!!!!! But what should I dress up as?!
*sigh* I've got 2 parties to go to and I don't even know what am I going as. My super cute classmates are dressing up as The Wizard of Oz's characters. So we have Dorothy, Tin man, Scarecrow, the Lion and the Doggie... I need Ideas that are cheap and easy!!!
