Welcome Back

Posted in Mundane Thoughts at 3:45 pm by smileygirly

It’s been a fair while since I blogged and there’s been a number of resons I guess. The first one being that my thesis was due in and thus, I just did not have any time! Now it’s over and I officially possess an MSc! Yay!!

The second reason is the fact that I now work 17 hours a day and there is no time to blog! ( I hear the mass outcry amongst those of you that read my blog!)

The third reason is because I haven’t really had nothing interesting to write about but hopefully that’ll change.

So I hope you enjoy my future posts and thank you for coming back! 🙂

Lovely Fluffy Clouds

Posted in Mundane Thoughts at 9:37 pm by smileygirly

I saw the most beautiful cloud today. That kind of comment probably warrants a “What a nut job” response so please feel free to carry on along that train of thought. However, let me describe this cloud. I did take a picture but I can’t post photos into my blog and thus any help would be greatly appreciated. It was a beautiful cumulus nimbus cloud that had the colour of a rain cloud. It had a purplish/greyish tinge to it. And then behind it, you could see a perfect white cumulus nimbus cloud and it looked like the purplish one had this amazing white back drop. The horizon was an orange crimson colour and it truly was beautiful. I do tend to get excited over clouds. This is because I love looking at them and trying to identify shapes and stuff.

I think clouds are one of nature’s most beautiful creations.

I Am Officially Old!

Posted in Mundane Thoughts at 2:23 pm by smileygirly

If you’ve read my “About” page, you’ll know that I’m a mere 24 years young. It’s not that old in chronological terms or so I used to think but last night that all changed. After celebrating my friend’s 24th birthday, I was invited to the 18th birthday party of a family friend’s (who also happens to be a close friend of my brother). So I decided to go, if only to provide some sort of supervision. This was the first threat of old age-ness creeping in.

Once I got there, it was obvious by far that I was one of the oldest individuals there (good job that I look young for my age!). Amazing how youths are so cliquey now. As we walked through (my younger brother, sister and cousin), all eyes on us as though being surveyed by a pack of lions – seriously!

As my night progressed, it got steadily worse. I was presented with scenes of a mass gathering of identical Asian girls grinding, whining and generally being far too provocative then they should have been with identical Asian boys. When I say identical, I mean cloned: typical straight black hair, all wearing the same dark denim skinny jeans and standard white pumps. Seriously, everywhere I turned I was confronted by one. The boys: the spiky hair look is obviously in, followed by wearing jumpers with only one arm pulled through, the dark denim oversized jeans followed with the traditional white trainers. CLONED I tell you!

On top of that, I had some nut job coming up to me every so often trying to high-five me. I was like “DUDE! We don’t even know each other – get over it!”

I was appalled at the behaviour I saw last night. Scenes of carnage I tell you. Is it so wrong that I’m feeling like this?
