WARNING: This is a ramble, so unless you're prepared, I say move on. ;)

It's very rare that I talk about my innermost feelings online but I'm heartbroken. It's something personal so I won't be telling much...
Lots of things have happened. Sometimes I question myself-- why do I always seem to embarrass myself in the most "casual" events. Well... that's me. I know I've talked about this about a billion times already but school is tough. No, correction-- teenage years are tough. I'm not going to be one of those people who can't wait to be an adult because I love being a teen but then again, it does costs you some downsides.

I was just thinking of wanting to take a break for 2 weeks off school and then in that time go off on a travel journey like I've always dreamed of doing. Go visit the Notre Dome, the Colosseum and other historical sites. That's my big-time dream: travel around the world. Of course that is fairly impossible since well given the circumstances that it would definitely cost a lot of money and my parents wouldn't be too happy about cutting off school anyway.

I guess I just wanted to get away from things. Take my mind off those painful stuffs. Don't want to deal with it. Although, eventually I have to anyway.

 I need to get things organised. Term break is almost over before I get back to school again. I managed to do some cleaning here and there but they were at the last minute so that probably doesn't count. My break was spent with a lot of things that I enjoy doing like crafting and other hobbies since I hardly ever get the chance to during school days. ;)

Wow, am I looking forward to return to school or what? Most likely not. It's all back to drama again and I'll be hearing more conversations about who's dating who and who's dumping who kind of stuffs. On the other side, I can't wait-- naah there's nothing to look forward to.

Today, I spent probably about ten minutes rearranging books on my bookshelf to fit in my newer books somewhere between them. At last, I came with a conclusion that I need to get another bookshelf. Would love to though but I've nowhere to put it in my room. OK - Total boredom here.

I'm currently taking movie suggestions or recommendations so please please comment down below if you have any in mind! :)

My absence with most of everything has assembled a feeling of loneliness. I've been quite lonely for quite some time now that it scares me. Now, I'm back. Hello my close friends of LiveJournal. ♥

I've been sucked in the The Hunger Games trilogy this week. I'm trapped in their novels and I can't seem to find a way out. So far, I've only bought the first and the second -- out of three -- novels from the trilogy which are obviously The Hunger Games itself followed by Catching Fire. Words can't describe how this trilogy written by Suzanne Collins has changed my life. Well not entirely but I sure have learnt a lot. Really. ♥ ♥ ♥

Sadly both each book took me 2 days to finish. It's not bad news in the way you might think. I secretly hoped that I would finish each novel within a week because I don't want the books to end so quickly and once I'm finished, it'll take longer to find novels as good as these. I finished Catching Fire about three hours ago which I purchased just yesterday. Already I am craving to buy the third and last part of this trilogy - Mockingjay.

If you haven't read these amazing & heart throbbing novels then you'll be missing big time.

My prayers and heart and sympathy and all goes to the victims of the Christchurch 6.3 Magnitude Earthquake which occurred on last Tuesday @ 12:51 pm. (By the way for those of you who don't know, Christchurch is in New Zealand, where I am, I mean I'm not in Christchurch, like as in, it's part of this country.... okay that sounded way off, sorry. I just wanted to make a point.)

Death tolls are increasingly rising which is a major worry for us but we are hoping more survivors will be found as well. Some people were squashed in their cars when the earthquake happened because buildings fell directly on top of them. Some roads just got divided in half. Absolutely shocking and the stories of how the community helped each other was absolutely touching. ;')

I'm sure you guys have heard of this incident since it's been airing on the news worldwide but yeah...

On a less-upsetting note, I opened a new blog: StarringLife.

 I'm heavily disappointed that no one was available to volunteer to work alongside me as an admin for my book club idea. *sigh* Well, looks like there isn't going to be a book club I guess. Last night, I was thinking instead of a club, maybe I should just start a booklog (book + blog) instead. Except it being a community, it'll be my own personal self-managed website. ♥

 I really love books. Really, really love them. I'm positive that most people here do too. :)
That's pretty much why we have sites like Goodreads.com to spread the love.

To be honest, I have this secret dream; to held my very own book club at my house. This dream stayed a dream, sadly. I love and appreciate the moments of meeting new people and sharing one thing we have in common, loving to read. Last night, I couldn't help but think if I should probably finally make it a dream come true by making an online book club instead.

I plan on doing it on a subdomain on Willowdust.org. The reason why I choose not to make it on LJ was because of the annoying advertisements they display on free accounts. However, also for the fact that not everyone has an LJ account and I really want to make my book club available to as many people as possible.
If the book club progresses successfully, I'll purchase a domain for it. *prays*

To clear any misunderstandings, I shall explain a brief information of this future book club:

Members are encouraged to post a review on a book they read. But be sure you search (I'll include the search form thingy on the sidebar) for the appropriate posts and confirm that the review have not yet been posted by someone else so that no double entires are published and also prevents any confusions. If they found a review that someone else had written but wish to express their own opinions as well, they should use the comment form.

When an outstanding member reaches a certain number of posted reviews (eg. 50), they'll receive a certificate and probably a badge. Each month, the admin(s) will pick top 3 book reviews to be featured on the sidebar for the rest of the month. Occasionally, I may hold a contest or a challenge with a few awards to give out. :D

All this are due subject to change. So yeah.

PSS: I'll only make this book club if there's anyone who'd kindly volunteer to become an admin as well. Feel free to leave a comment if you're interested. I'd prefer much more if I've known you before or if we've talked at least 5 times on LJ/Twitter, etc...

In the beauty/makeup world, I like to say that my favourite product is a lip gloss/lip balm. They're vital in my everyday life. ♥

The second other thing that I love in the beauty department is foundation/face powder. I like how not only do they hide my horrid pimples, they also make my skin look more smoother and protects from the sun (depends if they have SPF).

Third thing is the skincare products. They're essentials to every feminine in this world. :D You need to cleanse and tone your skin each day to avoid oily skin which in the end causes wrinkles and more pimples. There's lots of skincare products that I love and the list is definitely as always, endless. :P

What about you (if you're a girl, obviously), do you like a certain beauty/makeup product/s?

First, I opened a new website called Willowdust.org, do let me think of the layout! :D And, this entry was directly crossposted from that site. :)

We all know that 2012 is a leap year. 29th of February is what causing it to happen every four years. It's not everyday we get an extra day for... something. Anything!

I decided: I'm going to do something really fun, memorable and enjoyable (definition to all this: waste time, really) on that day. Wednesday, 29th Feb 2012, here I come. So I basically have about a whole year to make a list of things I'm going to do on that very special once-every-four-years day. Imagine this: an extra day for whatever you want! No work required (although I still have to go to school on that leap day).

Things I've compiled so far...

1) Greet at least one person by saying "Happy twenty-ninth!"
2) Tweet "Happy 29th of February, my beloved Twitter friends. :)" on Twitter.
3) Draw/illustrate 29 happy-resembling faces and then colour them each in different colours.
4) Watch <strong>exactly</strong> 29 minutes of TV (ads are also counted). Time it, just in case.
5) Do a brief research/study of how 29th of February occurred. Never mind! I just did that. -_-
6) Learn how to say 29 in 29 different language (English also counts).

I'm going to add some more things at least until I reach 29 of them. Any suggestions? What do you plan to do?
