Over for another year

So the exams are over, the summer holidays have arrived at last!
Well, it's not summer yet, but close enough. =P

Lately I have been busy planning for our short trip to Queensland, staying three nights at Surfers Paradise and two nights in Brisbane with Mash. It's going to be a wonderful holiday! Can't wait until December 8th, when we depart.

I am going with my twin sister Jane, and friends Sandra and Yimo. It will be my first holiday without my parents, hmm...hope it will go smoothly.

We also put up our Christmas tree, now our living room has more colour. However, I will miss my dear Rex. Boxing Day will be his sixth birthday.

So little time...

*holds pillow over the face and screams*

The exams start in just 25 days! This time, it's even worse than the last semester. I have three exams in a row! Chemistry, Biology and Physics - all in three days!

How could they be so cruel...my brain...argh my brain hurts!

*flail arms wildly*

*runs away to Neverland*

The Clone Wars

Season two of Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series will premier next month! The date is October 2nd in the US, but I have no idea when it will air in Australia. Hopefully it won't be too far behind. The only thing I know is that it will be on Channel Ten, like season one was.

I've seen the trailer for it, and it looks awesome! Can't wait! =D
Take a look below!

Impatient

There is still one and half weeks before the mid semester break. It's late this year, after eight weeks instead of the usual six.

So I really can't wait, so I can relax my mind a bit, and more importantly, catch up on work. Physics is taking a toll on me, I really dislike the content this semester. Electrostatics and circuits is just not my cup of tea. =__=

Better go and do some work now. *sigh*

Cage Makeover

Since the weather is still quite cold, I've decided to spice up Rex's cage a bit.
I purchased a couple of pet blankets at a two dollar shop, and used it to lay his cage floor. Newspaper can get a bit slippery for him at times.

Rex loves his new flooring! He approved of my decoration by flopping down and stretching out. =)

The Start of Semester 2

One week of the second semester has already gone by! Nothing much has happened...yet.
I'm quite happy with my results from last semester, although I am hoping to do better, especially in physics, which was my worst subject. xD

All the lecturers are okay so far too. Now I just hope the tutors are good. *fingers crossed*

Rex is booked for the vet this Tuesday. I might have to miss an hour of uni, depends on if my sister have work or not.

Rex is sick again...

About a week ago, I noticed that Rex has been eating very little hay. After some careful observation, I realized it wasn't Rex being cheeky. You see, Rex wants to eat the hay, the problem is that, he can't.

He is eager for hay, but it seems he can't take it into his mouth. This is very worrying. I researched online, and I am certain that the problem probably lies with his teeth. It could be molar spurs, where his molars aren't wearing down evenly which prevents him from chewing normally. So now, Rex can only eat pellets. The poor thing...I bet he is in quite a bit of pain as well.

I have to get him to the vet before he stops eating altogether.

Two down, one more to go

Wow, time really flies eh?

I only have one more exam, chemistry, before I am liberated for this semester at last! =D I seriously can't wait, it's a whole month of freedom!

For my previous two exams, biology of cells and organisms, and physics fundamentals, were alright. I was far more confident about biology than physics, which I hope I can pass. xD
During the two days on which I had those two, the examination hall was freezing, and I am not kidding. I wore as much as I could, but clothes only helped so much. Three hours and fifteen minutes of sitting still was enough to make my lips turn purple and I left the hall with chattering teeth. Gah....I can't perform my best when I am very cold (or hot for that matter).

*sigh* I just wish on the day of my chemistry exam, the weather would be more accommodating.

Sugary Treat

Today I gave Rex a grape for the first time ever.
Usually he is cautious towards new fruits and vegetables so I wasn't expecting him to eat it. But to my big surprise, Rex only sniffed it once before devouring it!

While eating the grape, he makes those slurping noises - it was really cute! After he finished, he licked up all the grape juice on the floor of his cage. Heheee! I'm glad he enjoyed his special treat! ^^

Now because grapes are quite sugary, I am going to give it to him sparingly. I should try strawberries some day. Once I tried banana, but he was petrified of it! xD

Oaten Hay!

On Saturday I dropped by Boing Online's "Headquarters" and purchased a large 5kg bag of fresh cut oaten hay for $12.

At first Rex wouldn't eat it, but after several minutes of sniffing and poking with his nose, he finally started to eat. Now he loves it! ^^

For such a small rabbit like Rex, the bag of hay is going to last for a few months.

Great value I'd say! =D

An awesome find!

Don't you just love it when you find something great on the web?
Today I was just goggling when I discovered some amazing Kingdom Hearts II desktop wallpapers. I have been searching for them for a while now, and these suit my laptop almost perfectly.
My laptop has a wide screen, so most wallpapers I usually stumble across are not quite wide enough. The ones below are 1280 x 1024.

Below are just a few of the wallpapers if you are interested to take a look. =P

Sora in Valor/Brave Form

Sora in Wisdom Form

Sora in Master Form

Sora in Final Form

Afternoon snack

When I cam home from uni today, Rex was, as usual, pretty hungry. =P
He enjoyed a large piece of choy sum for tea.

A change for the worse

NOOOO! We now have a different physics prac demonstrator!

His name is Ahmed, and to be honest, most people don't really like him. He talks a lot at the start, and then won't let us have the full three hours to complete the workshop exercises and the experiment. He is also quite harsh.

We all miss our previous demonstrator, her name is Chiara. She was really nice to us, and much more easygoing. She is now in charge of another prac group.

Ugh.. We have Ahmed for another 3 pracs. =__=

Passion

Here it is!
The Japanese version of the song Sanctuary, called Passion, by Utada Hikaru.

I like this version better, as the words flow better and the actual translation of the lyrics is beautiful.

I uploaded the song as background music, so have a listen if you like. =]

Passion
Utada Hikaru


Original Lyrics
English Translation
(wonk uoy naht niotceffa erom deen I)    

(wonk uoy naht niotceffa erom deen I)

Omoi daseba haruka haruka
Mirai wa doko mademo kagayaiteta
Kirei na aozora no shita de
Bokura wa sukoshi dake obieteita

If I recall, far far away
The future was shining on everywhere
Beneath the beautiful blue sky
We were just a little afraid

Natsukashii iro ni
Mado ga somaru

The window will be tinted
A nostalgic color

Mae wo muitereba mata aemasu ka?
Mirai wa doko edemo tsudzuiterunda
Ookina kanban no shita de
Jidai no utsuroi wo miteitai na

If we advance forth, can we ever meet again?
The future goes on to everywhere
Beneath the large signboard
I want to keep watching the eras changing

Hitoshirezu
My heart's a battleground
(snoitome eurt deen I)
(wonk uoy naht niotceffa erom deen I)
(snoitome eurt deen I)

Hidden away
My heart's a battleground
(snoitome eurt deen I)
(wonk uoy naht niotceffa erom deen I)
(snoitome eurt deen I)

Nido to aenu hito ni basho ni
Mado wo akeru

I will open a window
To the people and places I can't see again

Omoidaseba haruka haruka
Mirai wa doko mademo kagayaiteta
Kirei na aozora no shita de
Bokura wa itsumademo nemutteita

If I recall, far far away
The future was shining on everywhere
Beneath the beautiful blue sky
We were slumbering forever

(My fears, my lies)

(My fears, my lies)

Aozora no shita...

Beneath the blue sky...

Old pics of Rex

I dug these pics out of my phone today, the first time I actually bothered to link my phone to my lap top.
They are not that old though, only less than a year ago.
Still, very cute! ^^

Rex munching on his hay

Eating a piece of bok choy. Oddly enough, he only likes the leafy bits. xD
Such a picky fellow he is.

He now only has the carrot ball left. Which he can grab with his teeth sometimes and throw it.

Rex disapproves of hot weather.


I will take more pics as soon as I have time. Rex is ill right now, and I am so worried that I have trouble sleeping at night.

Wow...

Doesn't time fly when you are having fun? xD

I can't believe that four weeks of uni are behind me already. Only about 9 more weeks until the examination period. Not that I'm looking forward to it. Heck no!

I like science so much better! It's much more interesting, and there is more variety than just lectures all the time. Sure, I now have to be at uni five days a week, but so far it's great. The only downside is that we just get so much homework and there are tonnes of readings to do each week. I am already behind, and I must try to catch up soon.

And I must say I really love the laboratory sessions. Not only you get some hands on experience, it's also much more fun that burying your nose in the textbooks all day. ^^

Sanctuary

Hey everyone! ^^

I have uploaded a new song, called Sanctuary, by Utada Hikaru.

It's the opening theme for the popular PlayStation 2 game, Kingdom Hearts II. And it's my favourite game of all time! =D

Utada Hikaru is a well-known Japanese singer. This song is the English version, the Japanese version of the same song is called Passion, and you can hear that online, or on Youtube. =]

Of course, there is a video accompanying this song. If interested, just search "Kingdom Hearts 2 Opening" on Youtube. Or just use the link I posted at the end! =P

Enjoy! ^^

Note: You might not understand some of the lyrics, even though it's in English. That's because some of the versus are sung backwards. See the lyrics below!



Sanctuary
Utada Hikaru

Melt away

Checkin in!

Wow, it's been AGES since my last entry. Well, I guess no one cares since hardly anyone reads this anyway.

It is very very hot lately, with temperatures over 40 degrees celsius. So I mostly just stayed home, enjoying the air conditioning. I try to keep my pet rabbit Rex cool by spraying mist on him and giving him frozen water bottles. Summer is a dreadful time for him, with a thick fur coat and all.

So I have decided to transfer to science. I get some credit points though, so that's a relief. =) Hope it will all work out fine.
