Can't sleep. What's new? Oh right. New phone.

It's past 3am in the morning and I have to wake up and prepare for six hours of lessons in less than four hours' time. That's right. Lessons on a Sunday. Weekend, my ass.

Another sleepless night. I'm really not sure what's wrong with me.

Oh hey, by the way, non-existent reader, I bought a new phone last Sunday. In fact, I'm using it to write this post. It's a really good thing that I've finally gotten myself a good phone with a data plan, because I find myself spending a lot less time on the computer. I know I used to say that a smartphone is pretty much a novelty item and that it's pointless spending as much money on a phone as smartphones cost, but I only spent about 50 bucks for it with the plan upgrade(my monthly bills will still be taken care of by my father, but I usually keep it to the minimum subscription fee). Oh, and it's a Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S, by the way. Wonderful phone, though I find myself having to charge it like every half a day. Probably 'cause I keep fiddling around with it when I'm bored.

Anyway, that was just a quick update of my life. The rest of my life is still boring and uneventful, yet stressful as hell. Hopefully that was something totally new and refreshing for you, otherwise I'm really sorry for wasting your time and effort for reading. Which means that I'm sorry to pretty much nobody.

Wow, almost three months since my last post? Time flies even when life isn't that fun.

Finally got my arcade stick

After a long time of consideration, research, scouting and reconsideration, I've finally gotten my hands on a Hori Real Arcade Pro VX SA. Cost me about $180.

It's a huge sum of money for me since I don't usually spend much, but I don't think any other large expenditures will be popping up for me any time soon, and I should be using the stick for a long time. Also, the stick feels awesome. Sanwa parts really are like sex to your fingertips.

I've only tested it for a couple of matches so far, and I still need a little more time to get used to it, but I'll probably be using it a lot more tonight. It's kinda like a belated birthday gift for myself, and also a bit of consolation for my crappy exam results. My future may still be bleak, but hey, at least I'm enjoying the present, right?

Got SSF4: AE

Like the title suggests, I got the game. Two days ago, actually. Now it's just the joystick and I'm fully equipped for online play. But the general price level for joysticks that I've observed is just too insane for me. I need to do more scouting. Not that I'm not enjoying myself using the Xbox 360 controller. The game is still awesome.

I'm really tired right now. Haven't slept regularly these past few days. But I'm gonna go for a walk in the Botanic Gardens with my father, and will be meeting up with the guys later this afternoon. Hopefully the day will be packed enough for me to be forced to sleep longer tonight. I foresee myself sleeping too early and waking up in the middle of the night tonight, though.

Don't Walk Away - Kiske/Somerville

Been listening to this song many times recently.



I've never lost my faith in you
After all that we've been through
Well I could lose control
You touched my lonely soul

I can't pretend that I don't care
In The end it wasn't fair
I heard every word you said about me

When we will win, we may be losers
Nothing will ever change my mind

There will be rain after sunshine
There is no spark without a flame
I will be there when you need me
You & me - Don't walk away

I never thought that this could happen
Even the world has changed for me
There will be a final sunrise
You make it real for me

I thought I'd never fall again
Within my heart are memories
Mistakes so many done before and again

There will be a time
When you will find someone
Turning your whole life up & down

There will be rain after sunshine
There is no spark without a flame
I will be there when you need me
Don't walk away

I see your face in the sunrise
I will be there for you in the dark
As we danced in the moonlight
You and me
Baby please don't walk away

I've never lost my faith in you
After all that we've been through
Well I could lose control
You touched my lonely soul

There will be rain after sunshine
There is no spark without a flame
I will be there when you need me
Don't walk away

I see your face in the sunrise
I will be there for you in the dark
As we danced in the moonlight
You and me
Baby please don't walk away

First exam over

Just came home from my Introduction to Economics exam.

I can only safely say that I attempted and gave full answers to every question I was supposed to do. No idea if the answers I gave are the answers the examiners are looking for. I could've been better off drawing the evolutionary stages of various Digimon for all I know. But at least I (kinda) did my best.

I'm absolutely dying from the anticipation for the end of the exams.

Stressed?... Maybe.

The Virtualand arcade at nex has upgraded all of its Street Fighter IV cabinets to Super Street Fighter IV. Most of the people who hang out around the cabinets are pros. I don't really wanna be caught using a complex character like Gen in a really noob manner.

The entire mall is crawling with really pretty chicks. Opens a vast number of doors to depression.

Prelims will begin pretty soon and the actual exams will begin soon after. I'm behind on my studies.

The stress would be killing me if I wasn't so apathetic.
