Can I just say that if it wasn't for Dead Poets Society, I wouldn't have stayed on as a lecturer?

I was literally sending out resumes to other non-academic companies while teaching in my first semester as a lecturer when I decided to rewatch Dead Poets Society. And that rewatch changed my life.

So sad to hear about Robin Williams's passing. You will be missed, my Captain.

ETA: Sarah Michelle Gellar, why you gotta make me cry?!

Wrote this on my other blog but I just thought I'd share it here too

Different people have different opinions about this movie and that's a given. I heard people saying that it was boring and some walked out because they didn't expect so much singing.

I, however, loved it.
[Just a few things]
1) Everytime Anne Hathaway was onscreen, I'd end up lip-quivering. Actually, no. I lip-quivered only at the start. Right after she sold her hair, I pretty much had a snot-fest. She was SO. GOOD. I Dreamed A Dreamed destroyed me so much. I came into it knowing that my heart will be ripped to shreds by that song (re: The One Where Firah Heard Anne's I Dreamed A Dream and Proceeded To Cry Into Her Fries) but to see her facial expressions? Heartbreaking.



2) So. I didn't know that they had make up for your teeth




3) There were so many boob shots in this movie. It was uncomfortable sometimes.




4) Hugh Jackman's hollow eyes and vein-y forehead will haunt me for nights to come.



5) MY AARON TVEIT. YOU'RE THE FIRST REASON WHY I WANTED TO WATCH THIS MOVIE IN THE FIRST PLACE.</div>

Baby boo, I need your touch, never wanted somethin so much

I LOVE YOU AARON. FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER AND ALWAYS.


6) Russell Crowe?



His singing was a slight ngeh for me but man did I weep when he jumped the bridge at the end.


7) EDDIE REDMAYNE. Apparently Eddie had to do several takes until he was really ok with his performance because he was terrified of singing. The boy looked terrified in some of the scenes, but Empty Chairs KILLED ME WAAAAAAAAAA. His sad!face was just too precious.


8) The movie's long and there are time jumps. I found that if you're not paying attention to the lyrics of the song, then you may find it difficult to understand the movie/musical. So it's good that they had the English subtitles on the screen as well to help you out. 


9) LMAO at Eponine being friend zoned. On My Own is such a Forever Alone song aka my theme song waaaaa


10) Grossest scene ever goes to the sewer/sludge scene. Because eww.


So yeah. Go to the loo before going into the cinema because it's going to be a long 2 1/2 hours

Last Wednesday, I had one of my wisdom teeth removed. The lower one had been giving me problems for years but it was only recently that I could find some time off from work and the necessary finances to do something about it.

Ever since I was a child, I've been very particular about my teeth. So prior to the operation, a lot of time was spent reading up on what I should do and what I shouldn't do to prevent infection or a dry socket. Also, I'm a worrier so reading up on the worst case scenarios was necessary.

I believe that worrying about a bad thing prepares you for it when it comes. If you worry, the bad thing doesn't hit you as hard. You can roll with the punch if you see it coming

Mundane recalling of what happened inside my mouth.Collapse )

So yeah, wisdom tooth #1 down, 3 more to go.

P.S. Thank you to friends who checked up on me pre-op and post-op. Your tweets/smses cheered me up throughout the whole thing! I didn't feel so lonely going through it!

Also: DOWNTON ABBEY IS COMING BACK SEPTEMBER 16! That's one day after my birthday!!

So last week, the episode was dreary and kind of slow. Not much was happening and things only started picking up in the last few minutes of the episode. 

Yeah this week? IT FREAKING STABBED ME IN THE CHEST.

Last week, Farah and I took our first via plane vacation trip to Bali! It's been a while since F-squared spent time together since Farah had 3 months off from work due to summer vacation, we decided to go somewhere near to just relax. 

It was a trip that was more than 2 months in the making and in retrospect, IT WAS ALL WORTH IT. Well, honestly, it's always worth it when I'm hanging out with Farah so the holidaying was an added bonus ehehehehe.
Our flight was from Changi so technically we had to go into another country to go to another country but isall good. 
And now, PEEKTURES! I didn't edit any of these pictures so whatever you guys are seeing is what we saw. Bali was just magnificent and beautiful and I'm already missing it so much.

So we were having ice-cream at Sogo when there was a blackoutCollapse )


Bali is so beautiful. Just so beautiful.

  • So the drama with my dissertation is not over yet. I wish it were but it seems like I'm having problems getting that final signature from my supervisor because SHE'S NOT AROUND. I have to eat McDonald's in the car sacrifice my lunch break tomorrow because I'm going to have to drive across town to catch her in her office. I just hope it pans out cause I just really want to graduate.

  • I BOUGHT A KINDLE! I've been meaning to buy one since forever but was too lazy to pay for the additional charges to send the Kindle here. However, since my eyes were starting to hurt as I was reading my books through my iPad, I paid a visit to one of the local online forums and this seller had an offer so I just went for it! With additional help from trumpeterofdoom, I finally decided on a Kindle Touch and I must say, I love it very very much! 

  • I promised cut_thestring that I will blog about my Suits feels! I know this is a bit late because I was away on vacation but the first thing I did when I reached home was get an update on Mike and Harvey's shenanigans. And since I find it easier for me to comment when I list things out, here it goes: 

That whole movie thing that you and Harvey doCollapse )
