Walls (are the only exciting thing in this post)

Published January 2, 2014 by sophiachandler


Today marked the first ever day of my going to a new high school! It was… interesting. There were (loud) school cheers and classmates that I’m not sure if I’ll get used to and seniors so full of energy and nearly bouncing off the walls and old friends and scary teachers behind a nice disguise and a camp briefing.

Basically, eh.

But it was still nice seeing all of my friends and the food in the cafeteria 🙂 and knowing which classes we would be joining 😦 and which classes we wouldn’t be.

Okay sorry this isn’t much of a post! But nothing new really happened these past few days… so yeah. This is the only exciting piece of news I could share with you today.

But I’ll drop in a song:

“Oh damn these walls
In the moment we’re ten feet tall
And how you told me after it all
We’d remember tonight
For the rest of our lives

If these wings could fly”

~Birdy, Wings

Walls are kind of a recurring theme in my life .-.

Things I’ve learnt from this shuffle quiz: tomorrow I shall have a love encounter, apparently.  I am someone who abuses children, or will, when I grow up. I have to show my dark side to achieve my highest potential in life, WTH. I have to become Miley Cyrus and then get on a wrecking ball, NAKED and then swing around. Only then will my life become successful. And my best quality is my ability to not stop and party like Miley Cyrus and then ultimately embarass myself. People see me as a princess/queen in their eyes. That’s nice!I am as crazy as somebosy who tells their friends that their girlfriend died because of freak accidents. Anyone who really loves me will always be a friend to me (how true this is, jussayin’ guys). And I shall be in the US of A in a year’s time so bb guys!

I am absolutely in love with these random music shuffle quizzes I can’t even right now.


Merry Christmas

Published December 25, 2013 by sophiachandler


Merry Christmas everyone!

Did any of you guys get what you wanted for Christmas? Any new packets of air-dry clay (oh CCJ!), balls of yarn (hehe Kia) or Minecraft-related stuff (a certain Richard I know!)? Or a new computer perhaps? That dress you’ve been eyeing recently? A Starbucks gift card from a loved one?

I’m so very pleased with the bountiful abundance of gifts I recieved! There were gifts like the new Skullcandy headphones from my parents (thank you so much I love you to the sky and back okay!), gifts like the small but sweet keychain with my name spelt on it in alphabet beads that my best friend Emma gifted me, gifts like the somewhat touching small note that made me smile placed among the small treasure trove of items Clarissa bestowed upon me at the party last Saturday.

As corny as it sounds, Christmas isn’t all about the gifts that you receive, it’s about giving them. A confession: this year was the first year that I was actually buying something using the money that I had painstakingly tried not to use for buying my weekly frappes at Starbucks. And I enjoyed it, because, well, there’s something inside you that makes you feel good about using your own money and effort to get a loved one something to warm their heart.

I can’t believe I just wrote something that corny!

Speaking of which, did you know that Christmas is not the day on which Jesus Christ was born?

I know, I know, shocking. I read The Da Vinci Code a year back and discovered this fact. Apparently it’s something about Roman propaganda. I can’t remember the details, but it has something to do with Constanistople, the then Roman emperor at that time, converting to Christianity and mixing some of the pagan religion into Christianity. December 25th is actually the Roman Saturnalia in which everyone eats, drinks and is merry. Also, did you know that the halos of the angels are actually supposed to be the Romans’ sun disks?

I’m going to end my post here, but I shall leave you with some lyrics from my all-time favorite Christmas carol:

“I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree”

It’s from the Queen of Christmas – Mariah Carey!


A very merry Christmas everyone! Here’s hoping all your wishes come true!

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

Because it was.


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.


“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”


The Disappearance of Sophia Chandler

Published December 16, 2013 by sophiachandler

Most likely, you’ve noticed that I have vanished completely (actually that’s an exaggeration) from cyberspace for a week or so. The factors accounting to my disappearing act are:

  1. A cruise vacation. We went to Southeast Asia – as in, Phuket, Penang, Singapore – with another family – the Cohens. It was a free company trip! All I can say is that I immensely enjoyed myself. I learnt a new board game, I went parasailing, I discovered coconut chocolate in Penang and burnt my tongue trying to eat a spicy noodle dish they call laksa – I had so much fun! Plus, it helped a lot that the Cohens are my best friend and her family. And she has a really cute baby sister too. #justsaying
  2. The Internet was being a female dog. I’m sorry, computer, for cursing you and calling you a “stupid hunk of metal” but I didn’t mean it, okay. I was just having one of my many hissy fits. Please don’t take them seriously.
    And I apologize for calling you a female dog as well.
  3. I had extra lessons. Okay, not extra lessons, tuition. I suck at Math. I’m really crap at it, and anyway Mum wanted to keep me out of the house and away from the computer because she swears I am addicted to it, so I took it up. Except I didn’t understand half the stuff they were teaching ._.
  4. The Christmas season. This is just an excuse… kind of but not really. I was also busy during the holiday season due to the number of gifts poor ol’ Sophia Claus has to buy for all the many best friends and close relatives.

Before I end this post, I’m just going to say some more other stuff here: you can now find me on social media. Not Facebook though, but if I get up to thirty or so likes I may get a Facebook page for the fun of it. However, I have Twitter and Wattpad.

I haven’t shared any songs for a while…

The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku

The first time I listened to this song I almost cried.

“Even if I’m a toy that traces songs, I resolve that it’s ok, eat negi, look up at the sky and cry, but I lose even the power to do that.
My personality becomes too dependent on music, and when my original place turns to waste,
my heart-like thing disappears and there is a world I see at the end of my insanity. ”
~Hatsune Miku, The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku
