It is rare that I am updating my blog rather regularly these days. But since my class was so-called cancelled, I still have about 8974597834 hours (actually, just three) to kill.

Not many frequent here any more. I don’t blame them since I did not make the time nor effort to actually maintain the bond. So, if you read past archives, you will notice that I don’t really blog really deep and personal stuff. Usually it’s about my random days or something I want to share or pictures I want to post.

I guess having 8974597834 hours to kill just puts your gears in your mind to work. So, beware, it may be a long, random, (perhaps) boring and wordy post.

After a long wait, Jolene and I have finally gotten our haircuts!

I have been wanting to change my hairstyle for some time and she was getting irritated with her hair. So we went over to her aunt’s hairdressing salon to get our hair done.

Here are some before pictures:

To be honest, I never liked getting haircuts. Trimming or thinning my hair is fine since the hairstyle does not change. But cutting is like, this huge step to take. And after much anticipation and excitement over a couple of weeks, apprehension actually starts to creep up. My hair is what I call problematic, disobedient and stubborn. Pretty much like myself, come to think of it.

Well, it appears that I have finally finished watching every episode of Veronica Mars. Jason Dohring is still hot-looking as Logan Echolls but Stosh “Piz” Piznarski is so cute in an indie-rockish way. Well, he’s also adorable when he goes all puppy-eyed at Veronica

Anyway, to touch on things that have been happening, well, nothing much actually. School’s still a chore (and a bore), still having an assignment that is overdue, a quiz that I managed to convince the lecturer to let me take a re-test (because I missed it due to illness but the doctor refused to grant me a MC) and my project is running behind schedule.

Training-wise ain’t that good either since my back has begun to hurt really bad recently and someone said that I might have a slip disc or something. To think that we are going to have friendlies with NP this Saturday. My arms feel flabby already

I miss my team

I know I am like, very slow. But I just finished the first season of Veronica Mars (in which I have heard about it quite a lot a long time ago but just never had the sources then) and I must say that it really rocks. The only problem I have with this show is the theme song (“We Used To Be Friends” by The Dandy Warhols). I just (personally) feel that the melody is a tad too cheery for the series.

Before watching or reading up on this show, I knew I had this thing for Logan Echolls. Described as Neptune High’s “obligatory psychotic jackass” by Veronica, he is quite a bad boy. But, whatever. Jason Dohring is my so-new poster-guy now

I so dig him

So my team went to Sentosa on Saturday to do some relaxing and bonding instead of the usual training. I would not say it was a big success but at least the team talk we had cleared some stuff hanging and tied some loose ends.

Today was Sky Tower & Power98 Carvivor Rally and I had to be up by 5.30 in the morning in order to reach SAFRA Yishun Country Club at 7 to register. My group had Aaron , Xiong and Neo and they can be very, very, very lame (and a tad childish) together.

Oh, and we had a group name, too. When I first saw our name, I literally laughed out loud. Our name was 3 wolves and a not so little sheep

Carvivor had shortlisted groups so there were 150 groups (of four) trying to win SG$10,000 in cash. I kid you not. Hey, $2.5k is quite handy in my pocket This year’s theme was water so we were told to be prepared to get wet.

Anyway, the challenge kicked off with one person from each team swimming the breadth of the swimming pool to collect the location of the first station. There were five stations in all and our first stop was at West Coast Park, followed by Pasir Ris Park, Sky Tower at Sentosa, some car show room around Ang Mo Kio (I forgot the location) and Choa Chu Kang stadium.

At each station, there were challenges that had water involved. The time taken for all the challenges are tabulated for each group and the group that completes all five challenges in the shortest time wins that $10,000. And, unfortunately, 3 wolves and a not so little sheep did not win

But I had fun, I guess. I met Zhi Yuan at the challenge! It’s been a long time since I last saw him. We agreed that we should meet up soon to celebrate our belated birthdays
