-Captain Frederick Wenworth
I closed the book and used it to fan my eyes at the thought of having school the next day. Yeah cause everyone wants to start off the term with swollen eyes. Mum thought I was crying because I had school the next day. haha
Actually, I am quite keen on the prospect of school recommencing. This holiday made me think of home more than is necessary. I need a distraction! Schoooool.
But school comes with a price: the promised workload, stress and many sleepless nights.
He will take me by the hand. He will guide me and lead me eash step of the way. That I know and take comfort in.
The judges used their one and only save on Big Mike. whaaaa??

PG-14 and 9 months – cult, satanic worship references.
To bid around the bush, ‘Sherlock Holmes’ was good but not as good as expected. Overall, the plot was alright; some parts were confusing, some were predictable. However, it was entertaining watching how the characters Sherlock, Dr. Watson and Irene interacted with each other. Holmes is your typical hero figure – very smart, funny la a bit, handsome?, has a sidekick and cannot die wan. He is spontaneous in his thinking/actions (makes you go “whoa”). He has his faults too, but like the title suggests, without sherlock Holmes, there is no 'Sherlock Holmes'. Dr. Watson, the cute sidekick with the geniune english accent is a likable character. He is a good friend throughout, even when Holmes was insensitive and a terrible friend. In the trailer, it seems as if there is an obscene scene involving irene (when she takes off her robe), but believe me, it's clean. So watch the movie with ease knowing that you won't have to close your eyes or forward the scene (especially with parents around). On a slightly negative note, the viewer is encouraged to watch with subtitles to catch what Holmes is saying because he speaks really fast and his voice is low.
The movie shows clearly the evil nature (greed, cruelty etc) in humankind, and how fear rules our lives; we have nothing to fear but ourselves.
I give it 4 over 7 stars.
The Lord of The Rings still stands as the best movie made in movie history. Followed by
Avatar. Truth is independant of opinion.

And it has been 9 days since I landed in Australia. We have more or less already resettled and have made the "neccessary adjustments". All is good :)
First day back in school was slightly weird. Not seeing all those faces for so long, not writing, calculating, visiting those toilets, putting on my hat! (oh do i despise that hat) in 2 months.. It was nice however, when people aknowledged my return with a "Oh, Abby's back" or "How was Malaysia?". Everyone likes to be remembered and aknowledged from time to time.
OH. My phone is doing very well at the moment and is safely locked up in a tower. Thank you to those who reminded me not to leave it behind at the airport. I was extra alert - maybe overly alert - checking my bag every 5 minutes. I self-controlled myself, resisting the temptation of reading while waiting for the flight. because we all know what happened the last time i was too absorbed in a book. Nokia 5300, how art thou?
Swimming carnival is tmr. I am still contemplating on whether to go or not. There are really good hot chips sold there apparently. but i ask myself, "is that a worthwhile reason to go, Abigail, is it?" i could be bludging indoors, at home, coz really swimming carnival is also one bludge of a day.. but outdoors. i like home though. Heart is where the home is :)

Tuesday: Queensland Transport - could not sit for my learners test because of some ridiculous reason.
Then a pleasant picnic by the river for Charmaine's advanced birthday.
Fixed the problem and back to Queensland Transport. Sat for the test, did good and now I am a proud owner of a leaner's license!
All I have to do now is complete 100 hours of supervised driving to officially be able to drive. haha my poor parents!
I shall be pro in no time :)

I'm on holidays!! yay For three weeks!!!
I've been planning and making a list of "Things to do during the holidays" which include finishing Breaking Dawn (dont even know where im up to anymore), earning some money then getting a black/white dress, shopping for birthday gifts, parties..
Why are there so many june/july babies??
Oh and also getting a head start in Chem and maths. I aspire to do well this term. Although i say that for every term, I mean it this time! :)
Cant wait for the stress to end.
But it never ends :(
When darkness turns to light,
it ends tonight, it ends tonight. haha How i wish.
In the mean time, I'll enjoy my holidays as much as I can before I go hard out when school commences.
Hmm. Holidays will be fun.
I'll miss school though

Here's a song worth listening to. One of the best songs I've ever heard.
Going back to the corner where I first saw you,
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag I'm not gonna move,
Got some words on cardboard got your picture in my hand,
Saying if you see this girl can you tell her where I am,
Some try to hand me money they don't understand,
I'm not...broke I'm just a broken hearted man,
I know it makes no sense, but what else can I do,
How can I move on when I'm still in love with you...
Cos if one day you wake up and find that you're missing me,
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I can be,
Thinking maybe you'll come back here to the place that we'd meet,
And you'd see me waiting for you on the corner of the street.
So I'm not moving...
I'm not moving.
Policeman says son you can't stay here,
I said there's someone I'm waiting for if it's a day, a month, a year,
Gotta stand my ground even if it rains or snows,
If she changes her mind this is the first place she will go.
People talk about the guy
Who's waiting on a girl...
There are no holes in his shoes
But a big hole in his world...
and maybe I'll get famous as the man who can't be moved,
And maybe you won't mean to but you'll see me on the news,
And you'll come running to the corner...
Cos you'll know it's just for you
I'm the man who can't be moved
I'm the man who can't be moved...
(I took away the repeated parts)
This song reminds me of Jacob Black. Jacob’s constant sense of emotional hurt and feelings of abandonment presents the perfect analogy to what this guy in the song is going through. He loves Bella; waits for her, hoping she would somehow forget Edward and come running to him.
Bella Swan is the most annoying person I have had the privilege of not meeting (Yes I know she is not real anyway). She causes Jacob so much pain but he, after being ditched, still loves her and has hope, exactly like this man who can’t be moved.A few months ago, I was all “Ahhhh Edward Cullen, my one and only! I’m like your NOFFL (Number One Fan For Life)!!” But now, I am on Team Jacob as well. Sympathizing is only one of the many reasons. For a start, Jacob Black is reality.. Edward Cullen is fantasy. Think about it. Is there anyone quite as perfect as Edward Cullen?
I haven’t tried it, but I think this song is the kind which you can listen to while trying to sleep. It should help relieve insomnia. You can test my theory if you like.
Have a great day!
