September Update

Heyo!

I have been gone for so long, I have so many stories to tell! I don’t know what struck me but I’m really excited to tell my stories, so bear with me or skip this post altogether. Let’s get started!

  • I had my hair cut short, again! I participated in this year’s Shave for Hope. It’s actually my second time, the first time was in 2012 I think. This year, it was held in Lippo Mall Kemang. I’ve never been there by the way, and on the d-day I went there by motorbike. I swear to God, never again! We had to walk so far from the parking lot. It’s not only about the distance though, it’s also the lacking of beauty of the pathway to the so called mall. The parking was hella cheap though, only Rp 2.000,- for like 5 hours! Ok back to the point, I’m really glad I participated again this year, makes feel good and proud about myself, which is somewhat selfish and beats the original purpose to be selfless. But I’m glad to do some good while also being selfish. Some people ask me “Why would you do that?”. The thing is I just don’t feel the need to hold on to my hair when I can give it up to do some good, it’ll grow back anyway. It’s a wonder to me why more people didn’t participate. There was not a long line to get to the haircut booth like in 2012.

This is how me and Panci-san looks like now,

  • Last month I visited Hong Kong with 2 of my female friends (girls trip!!!) There’s a LOT that I want to share but I think it deserves its own post. I liked Hong Kong, probably will return some day!
  • A few weeks ago, I was on my way home, in a metromini (640) at around 7-8pm. The seat next to me was empty and a middle aged man hopped in and sat next to me. He was skinny, and carried a huge backpack with him, which he put on his lap. He was suspicious, I kept staring at him. One time I paused and looked away for a bit and when I look at him again, I saw his hand flinching! I know he was trying to do something. I kept staring at him, non-verbally stating “Dude, I’m freakin staring at you, I’m memorizing your facial features, don’t you freaking dare do something crazy!”. Apparently non-verbal measures didn’t work. His hand reached down his pants and I think he was about to pull his pants down. EW! I think I glanced at something I didn’t want to see, I quickly got up and moved to another seat at the front. I didn’t scream because I was stunned and couldn’t think. I did not know what words to scream! Soon after, I got off the bus (while making sure he didn’t get off with me) safely. I’m grateful I was able to move away before something escalated, hopefully nobody after me had to experience what that creepy man was trying to do. Moral of the story, when it’s starting to get late, sit at the front, with someone presumably safe occupying the seat next to you.
  • Kenyip-san is doing goooood. She’s lazy like usual, I’m thinking about bringing her to a cat salon to get properly groomed. Should I or should I not? Her eye booger marks are getting permanent.

Boogie Cat!

Anyway, I think that’s all for now. It’s getting late and I must say I’m kind of tired after an evening of failing making tteokbokki. Let’s doze off for another kickass day off tomorrow!

Meesa Back?

First and foremost, I would like to say I am sorry for the annoying title. I don’t know why but I kind of feel Bink-ish right now.

Anyways this is completely out of topic (not that I have already started  a topic) but I just heard some cock-a-doodle-doos at 2:10 am, seriously what is up with that? Stupid chicken… Wait, there’s another cock-a-doodle-doo. I guess the stupid son of a dingbat just doesn’t feel like sleeping.

So anyways I guess I’ll be back writing here! Nothing fancy, just some random thoughts, ideas, jabbers, the usual. I just installed the official blogger client on my cell phone so I guess I’ll be more active and encouraged.

So yeah I guess that is it! Actually I had nothing to write, just giving you a heads up for a serious, awesome blog revival.

Bye! And just stay on the look out for the upcoming posts and shits!

Stormtrooper

Well hello there.

I was completely gone for two months and 2 days to be exact and now I’m back with a new background. Not completely gone, actually. I did put on an effort or two to write reviews on films I watched but I have not seen so many of them lately. TV shows takes up most of my spare time and I think the quality of my brain is declining. All I watch is comedy. Thank God my favorites are still NBC sitcoms instead of some reality show on MTV (yes I’m looking at you, Jersey Shore) so at least I can say I’m still a little bit smart.

So about the background, it’s a stormtrooper! Maybe some of you already acknowledge my love of Star Wars, probably from some references I use here on my blog, in my tweets, anywhere really. Or, probably from seeing my PPW (Perancangan dan Pemrograman Web – Web Programming and Design) homework, which design theme was Star Wars (which was completely unrelated to my website content. I’m an idiot, really). So yeah I just thought, why not channel my weird love through my blog for the whole world to see. I apologize in advance if you consider this as a public display of affection (which it is, in a weird way).

So now about the stormtrooper, (sorry for FINALLY getting to the point, my mind likes to wander around) why a stormtrooper? There are so many characters in Star Wars (hell, I still can’t remember ALL the names), why choose that, the usually weak-minded underdog in the franchise? Basically, it’s just because everybody loves a Stormtrooper, so I’m reaching a wider audience (if I’m reaching any). I could’ve chosen Han, but I’ll only please the scoundrel-loving ladies. I could’ve chosen Leia with the slave costume but I’ll only reach the male audience. I could’ve chosen Tarkin and please the hipster fans. Or, I could’ve chosen Jar Jar and please nobody. Instead, I chose a stormtrooper, the one everybody loves. The definition of cool. The mainstream favorite.

Oh forget that. I was bulshitting. I chose it because it’s easy to find.

Anyways I found the background on http://www.collthings.co.uk/2010/05/star-wars-wallpaper-pictures.html. They got some cool stuffs, so get your ass over there and look around. And I hope me using the image as a background is not a copyright infringement or anything. I’m just a broke student so if someone sues me, it’s straight to jail and no bail (hey that rhymes!).

So yeah I hope you enjoy the new background. Oh and new blog description! Nothing good, just something I got from the top of my head. And by the way thanks for reading! See you next time!

Bye!

Guess Who’s Back Nerds!?

No, it ain’t Mercury (sorry to let you down). No, it ain’t Bohr. And no idiots! It ain’t Chuck Testa, he’s never even been here! Haven’t you even read my blog, ever? Yes, it’s me, the one and only Shoraya Muis. How do I know I’m the one and only? Yes I googled my own name and the results are all me, at least on the first page.

Okay so it’s been ages since the last time I updated this blog although I always promised to write more. I knooow, I can be a real bitch at keeping this kind of promise when there’s actually no other people in the other end of the promise. But I cannot say that I did not try, because I certainly did. I started 5 or 6 posts throughout the months but I finished none so, none posted. I don’t know, seems really hard to concentrate these days. For instance, in making this post, it took me 3 days to write the previous paragraph alone (which isn’t so good by the way). I wrote on and off those 3 days, and when I did, I did it while listening to british music. It’s just hard to focus on writing when you’re singing along and focusing on faking a british accent instead. So I decided from now on, no more promises. If I neglect this blog so let it be. Blogging is so 2005 anyways right *laughs at self*. Well, just kidding.

Anyhoo, it’s already freakin 2012! Isn’t that just amazing?! Well actually no, it’s not. I spent the new year’s eve in my room, faffing around (sorry for the british slang, I could not help myself, that would be the only one in this post I swear) . On the 2nd, I had a final exam which was freakishly hard so there it was, the pre-apocalypse. Well, of course no, I’m just messing around. I’ve had worse in 2009 and no apocalypse in that year. But finals aside, I think I had a pretty decent time in the start of 2012.

What about 2011? How was it? Did not really feel like much, no life milestone got completed. But I was quite contented, I focused on enjoying the little things. In November, we (Fasilkom) had an event to welcome and inaugurate the freshmen called MK which was held in Puncak (anyways congratulations KAWUNG!). On the site, there were actually swings and It’s been ages since the last time I got on a swing. I tried on one and it was one of the purest-happiest moment of my life. Now that’s what I call one of the little things. It’s nothing big you know, but it affects you so much with its simplicity. There are some other things in my list of enjoyable little things such as (not in order):


1.       Stationary shopping
2.       Hearing Adele laughs (really priceless I swear)
3.       Rewatching Empire Strikes Back (my favorite Star Wars movie, so many Han-Leia moments to give me instant butterflies in my stomach)
4.       Enjoying the smell of crepes (instant foodgasm)

I think people should really make that kind of list for themselves and stop being so stressed and uptight. Being in a good mood is quite essential in living a happy life. As for me, I function better that way. At least when a group of bitches are walking super slowly just before me, I will not have an urge to push them to the pit of Carkoon to be eaten by Sarlacc. I think the world could be a better place if people in it actually had better mood. At least, people should try to.

Well here I am, jabbering about things people do not actually care about. And so rude of me not asking about you, so here they are: How was your new year? What’s your list of enjoyable little things? Ask yourself the questions and maybe you’ll have something to write about!

I guess that was it. Peace, and see you in the next post 🙂

Recent Updates – About Blogging

Oh boy, I totally have neglected this blog. No wonder though. Blogging to me used to be the boredom antidote and now I have many alternative antidotes which I can say are definitely much more fun than blogging. But yeah mostly those alternatives are not as productive as blogging (hahah of course!) so that is why I think I have to revive my blog, just to channel the productive part of me, otherwise I will have my brain disfunctional by the end of the holiday.

Writing for me now is not as easy as how it was. Like this post, to write this piece of crap I have to have people reminding me how neglected my blog is and I have to be up at 3:47 in the middle of the night (not that it’s hard to be up at this time, trust me, I’m up at this time EVERYDAY during holidays) having insomnia plus not having GTA as an option to spend my night with and I have to run out of ideas to daydream. The last one is the hardest condition to meet since I daydream a lot usually and actually it’s kind of effective to bring you back to sleep. Plus there are still very distracting distractions. Just now I decided to shuffle my iTunes and a Backstreet Boys’ song played and I could not help but to sing along. Thank God the next song was a The Killer’s song which I did not know so I could not sing along to it. And there are other distractions like instant cup noodles and my phone. Look it’s 4:23 already and I only have written two pointless paragraph. And now it’s already 5 and I only came up with another pointless sentence.

Seriously this is saddening, how this post almost end up like the previous ones, undone and unposted. But thank God it doesn’t. From now on I will try to write more.

I will write more.

I promise you, blog.

 

P.S. Actually I wrote that promising sentence just to finish this post as soon as possible (See 4 or 5 short repeated sentences and it’s done). How saddening.
