Magic

Published December 23, 2013 by sophiachandler

To say that Saturday was anything but magic would not have been right.

Because it was.

Magic.

Okay I’m just going to stop with the dramatic intro. I’m still on my #YOLO high after all my partying on Saturday. Remember I told you guys I would be partying non-stop for three days? I’m back! And ready to update you guys on what happened!

On Friday it was a gathering at Jason’s house. I might or might not have mentioned that. I’m just going to rush through this part because the real deal is the next day, but anyways, it was a bit awkward with all our friends around. Especially since they knew about it. I swear I tried to enjoy myself and have fun with Clarissa (remember the Cohens I went on vacation with? That was my best friend mentioned) and her lil’ sister, Elle. Who is too cute for words. I got myself wet splashing around in the wading pool after trying to get my slipper which I dropped in the pool. Then we played wink murder, which I shall not go into detail about because my performance was too embarassing to discuss.

AND THEN SATURDAY CAME.

“We’re goin’ at it tonight, tonight
There’s a party on the rooftop
Top of the world tonight, tonight
And we’re dancin’ on the edge of the Hollywood sign”
~Tonight, Tonight by Hot Chelle Rae

I think it was all a blur. But this is the party where I’ve finally opened out and stepped out of my comfortable, cynical, world-mocking shell for a long moment to take a deep breath and see the beauty of being human, of being crazy and normal and letting everything go for one night. We played Truth or Dare, and I let all my secrets evaporate into the misty, cool night air, not once stopping to turn back and bow my head. I hugged people. I hugged people I don’t talk to normally, people I’m wary of, people my once paranoid self termed as “hates me” and people I love and cherish very deeply (I’m talking about you Kia, CCJ, Clarissa and Sam!), so much that I point to them and go, “She’s my girlfriend.” (Remember that for your whole life, Kia!)

I think this is the first time I’ve truly ever felt like I belong.

Sunday was really nothing, but I managed to eat quite a bit for the buffet! I had a nice long nap afterwards ^^

Earlier today I had my high school orientation. It was nice seeing all my friends again, and hugging them to death, and learning that I would be taking up Japanese on the side together with Kia and a couple other friends. I got my books and stationery – the usual stuff. Nothing very new or exciting.

When I came home, I brainstormed a bit and… I am pleased to announce that I am in the midst of writing a new story! Once I proofread my first chaoter and stuff, it will be up on my Wattpad page. I’ll inform you guys too!

And I realise I haven’t been using my Twitter a lot lately… I’ll be starting to now!

I’m Sleepy

Note: I meant to post this a day earlier, but my Internet crashed *sniff sniff* Treat it as a bonus post 🙂

I’m writing this after a hectic last-minute-Christmas shopping trip which lasted nearly five hours. And that’s not even inclusive of the eating and drinking part.

Well… I’m not saying I didn’t have fun. 😛

Kudos to my aunt and shopping buddy who managed to stay patient as I “shop-hopped” from one store to another! There were seven stores in total – I counted.

And then after I was done with my shopping, we went to a Ben and Jerry’s and had ice cream – good times, good times 🙂

On Friday I’m going to be Santa…. *sigh*

Because this was such a short post, I’ll leave you with some parting lyrics 😉 hopefully you guys can guess the song name!

“There’s a history through her 
Sent to us as a gift from the future
To show us the proof
More than that, it’s to dare us to move
And to open our eyes and to learn from the sky
From a cemetery
In the center of Queens”

This Isn’t Much Of A Post

Published November 22, 2013 by sophiachandler

Today was the day of reckoning – the day, that is, when we got back our much-dreaded result slips of the latest major exam. The examination is much like the SAT, only, it decides which high school you can enter.

It’s been almost six hours since I’ve queued up in the entrance hall with its stale air and the putrid smell of sweat wafting into my nostrils – but enough of the graphic descriptions! Not that I wasn’t satisfied with my score, it was pretty high, but it wasn’t what I’d expected to get. Some of my friends weren’t satisfied with their scores, others were (they’d even bragged about it with their heads held up high).

And then after that my parents and two of my close friends and their parents and one of my close friends’ brother and I went together to IKEA to have lunch and continue their deep conversation about who was the most good-looking guy in our grade, or something. Sometimes I don’t understand why adults talk about awkward stuff.

IKEA’s meatballs are yummy~

I was reading this really sweet manga (Watashi ni XX Shinasai, in case you’re wondering!) and I’m only on chapter thirteen out of the current 51 chapters available, but the boy is so HAWT ❤ sorry but I couldn’t help myself ^^ hehe! There’s still a slightly disturbing idea of Incest, because (spoiler alert!) her cousin has been in love with her for a really long time…

I thought I’d throw in a random quote from the current song I’m listening to now:

“The feelings got lost in my lungs
They’re burning, I’d rather be numb
And there’s no one else to blame
So scared I’ll take off and run
I’m flying too close to the sun
And I’ll burst into flames”

If you’re a Lovatic, you can probably guess which song this is… 😉
