I watched YouTube videos and wrote a blog as a break from typing up essays

Some days when I’m at the library I don’t even do anything related to uni. I just watch some YouTube videos. Also, last week we got a new internet plan at home so it’s faster and I can actually watch YouTube vids at home. Here are a few videos and songs that I’ve discovered in the past few months that I enjoyed.

“The Beat” by Ben Rector. It’s a catchy song with a head-boppin’ beat.

I still don’t understand why he found it so funny

Hello everyone. It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything relatively original to this blog, (7 months, actually) but I thought I’d try to get the blogging ball rolling again. Let’s start with a few updates.

For the most part of the year, I’ve been focussing on studying and getting my assessments done well before the due date. Any success? I guess so. I’ve succeeded in starting them more than a week or so before the due date, but finishing them the night before (or morning of) is a habit proving difficult to break. (If any writers of the webcomics I read are reading my blog and have noticed that I haven’t commented on your comics lately, now you know why.)

About a month ago I decided I was going to go for runs around my neighbourhood every second day. Surprisingly, I lasted about a week and a half, which is a week and a half longer than I’ve ever been able to keep up. I was quite proud of myself. I keep telling myself that I’m going to try and start again. But then I also tell myself that I’ve got a lot more assessments to work on and I need to make a study timetable of sorts so I can plan my time accordingly and set aside a particular time slot of every day to exercise. But the procrastinator that I am doesn’t want to make the timetables, physical or mental. Nor does the procrastinator in me want to put on my runners and run around for 15 minutes, and find myself gasping for breath. Oh well. We’ll see how I go.

Book: Two Thousand and Eleven. Chapter: January

See all of the “chapters” from 2011 here.

 
January has ended and I realised that I have not yet written a blog post this year. So I decided that even though my Project 365 isn’t meant for the public, I’d like to share some of the highlights of the past month.

January 1st, 2011For the past several years, my family has spent New Years Eve at the house of our Senior Pastor and his family. So I decided that Photo #1 would be of the TV while the fireworks were going off at Sydney Harbour. I didn’t know that you needed to take a photo to open the film cartridge on a polaroid camera, so I sat there watching the TV waiting for the best moment to take a photo. When I found the perfect moment, I pressed the shutter button, and gasped as I realised that the “photo” coming out of the camera wasn’t even a photo. I positioned myself for the next good scene of fireworks, only to find that the fireworks had ended. So now that my film cartridge was opened, I had to settle for a photo of myself with sparklers.

Narnia enthusiast

My excitement and anticipation for the cinema release of the new Narnia movie in 2 weeks made me want to watch both the already-released movies today. But I was a bit hesitant to watch Prince Caspian because they changed and/or excluded so many things from the book. Anyway, I watched them both, and it was only halfway through Prince Caspian that I started to feel tired from having been on my feet for several hours while I did the ironing.

I remember watching a BBC production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in primary school, and I remember it mimicking the book really closely. To my knowledge, they did more than just the one movie, so I went on a Google-hunt to find out whether it was available for sale anywhere so that I could buy it.

Here it is:

Geek of Narnia

geek

noun
an unfashionable or socially inept person
[with adj.] a person with an eccentric devotion to a particular interest

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been in love with the Chronicles of Narnia.

I first read the first book C.S. Lewis wrote from the series—The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe—in primary school, but sometime during high school, I decided I wanted to read the remaining 6 books. I managed to borrow and read all except the seventh book—The Last Battle—from my high school library, and I remember my mum randomly buying books 5 and 6 (The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and The SIlver Chair) for me.

In Year 11, we studied imaginary journeys for English (if I can remember correctly), and I used Voyage of the Dawn Treader as one of my texts for my portfolio. I don’t know why, but I went shopping for a new Chronicles of Narnia book around the time I was making my portfolio. It may just have been that I wanted to buy the other 5 books so I could finally read them again, but in the process, I found a large book that combined the seven. The cover boasted of the recently released movie adaption of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (which features a very handsome Peter Pevensie). (When Prince Caspian the movie came out, this book was re-released with a new cover that featured Prince Caspian (played by the handsome Ben Barnes) instead of the White Witch.)
