~*First interview.... EVER*~

~Today i had a SASA interview with Help college.... Totally screwed it >_< At around 12:30p.m. my grandma comes to school (oh! The embarassment!) and forces me to find a teacher who'll fill in the letter of recomendation for me (got my Moral teacher to do it for me). She also goes around telling my teachers that i was too lazy to get it filled in earlier as my mom has been nagging me to get it filled for 4 days already (which i did not want to do because i did not want to go for the interview), destroying what measly reputation i have.... =_=
~My dad was 5 minutes late picking me up for the interview from my grandma's house (interview registration was at 3). I reached Sunway Hotel (BTW, that's where the interview was being held, at floor 14) at around 3:05 p.m. and got myself registered Like A Boss! xD
~Anyway, the registration lady was very friendly, and there were around 10 more students there waiting to enter the interviewing room (3 females excluding me, one from my school, the rest were males). I sat next to a girl whom i've never met before, and she introduced herself. Definitely a Sanguine personality, very talkative and kept interacting with the registration lady (her name started with S and had 6-8 letters).
~So people kept going in and coming out, each student taking more than 10minutes inside with the interviewer.
The friendly registration lady interacted with us, and when she asked me what i want to do, i said i wanted to join the American Degree Transfer Program and take the Biomedical engineering course.
~Then i would specialise in Genetic engineering and then work to finding a cure for cancer. What motivated me to make such a decision? I said it was because both my dogs died of cancer. (No lie. Both had cancer of the private parts >_< I loved them and miss them greatly. R.I.P Smokey and Rusty) She also showed us an episode of Comedy Court on her laptop =D Cool lady.
~I was not nervous at all, although people around me were. I guess it was because i did not take this interview seriously. The friendly girl kept telling me not to worry and that i looked worried. I just smiled at her. It was 5 and 4 of us were left. A boy, the friendly girl, me (i was the second last to be intervirwed) and another boy.
~My parents came at around 5 (causing me more embarrassment than i needed for the day) and sat on one of the tables in the same room we sat. They kept signaling and calling for me to go to them, i managed to ignore them all the way xD
~The friendly girl went in. Two of us left. Friendly registration lady talked to the other boy, finding out that he speaks Japanease more fluently than he speaks English!! Anyway, my time finally came (friendly girl took like 10-15mins in the interview room).
~I went in and i swear, SWEAR, that the interviewer did not smile even once throughout our whole interview. I was warned by the other students that he'd be grumpy. The room was small, yellow, musty, had a weird smell and was warm compared to the previous rokm. Ok, so he asked me to describe my family. My first interview. I thought they wanted to know about me academicly, not my freakin personal life!!
~So i told what my parents worked as. I did not bother to describe my brothers or my two living grandpas and grandmas. No. Then he said "That's all?" and i thought. Then i said "my mom likes animals" ._.
~Next question, if i recall correctly, was 'what do you look for in the university/college you plan to join" i stutteringly said "If they have the program i want to join" his phone rang, he picked it up, said some words in a language foreign to me, put the phone down, asked me to repeat. I did. He said, once again, "That's all?" with a sour look on his face. I recked my brain for another answer and said "the standard and recognition of the university" and again he said "that's all?" like a broken recording and i replied "Um, yes?" with a dorky smile.
~Then he asked "what would you organize if the college was to fund you(as the leader of the group) and a group of people? This does not involve charity events" I blanked out for a moment. What the hell how should i know Omigod my life is over. "Uh, i would organise a pet helping group" i stuttered. "That's it?" he asked, finally changing his words a little. "and i'll organise a food event and the money raised from the food event would be donated to charity". He looked disappointed, but that was how his expression was from the moment i entered.
~He flipped through my papers (yes, i brought a file with papers of my achievements, which is a miserable amount, with me. Also, the letters of recommendation he kept) and then asked "Do you think you are a good leader?" i replied "No" and he seemed stunned for a millimoment, then "why?" i replied "Because i do not have the ability to lead and motivate"
~"What makes you special from other people?" was his final question. And OH! How i screwed it up so perfectly it was almost impossible to believe. My dad had wailed after the interview "Oh please tell me that was not your answer. ANYTHING but that!" and my cousin, Anil, had laughed, saying "That's the worst thing you could ever say! Ever!" what was my answer to the question? It was "Nothing." I replied "Nothing." N.O.T.H.I.N.G.
~He said he was done with interviewing me, i thanked him and scampered outta the devils room. My interview was by far the shortest there was, lasting less than 5 minutes. The friendly regestration lady looked shocked and slightly concerned. I thanked her and left with my parents. Of course, before leaving my dad had to ask her questions about the purpose of the interview. Man, how i wished i could have just evaporated into thin air at that moment >_<
~We walked to the car, got there, mom realized she left her handbag at the waiting room, we had to run back up and get it, i had to face the friendly lady again, and finally, FINALLY, everything was done with!
~So there i have it! My first interview ever....

~*The Power Of Words*~

~Ok this might sound weird (or not) but i just foud out that the word 'queer' means gay from Nix >_< But i like using that word! It's just a word! Btw i thought queer meant weird.... My goodness does every word have a double meaning now a days??
~Words. Interesting topic. Lets talk about it, shall we? How? Well,By using words, of course!
Words are such wonderful things. They allow us to describe what we love and hate, what we consieve and precieve. It helps us communicate.
Weird thing, how there are bad and good words, although words do nothing at all to deserve being bad or good. In different languages identical words could have totally opposite meanings! Hek, even animals have their own words! Words are sooo awesome that way =)
~So, for the love of all words, can i just use what ever word i please without offending people? No. Words hurt worse than stones and rocks and even guns sometimes. It hurts the mind. Words help convey our feelings towards someone, and what we think of them.
~Democrats rule with words. Hell, anyone smart enough to use words to their own advantage can mess with your mind so badly they could make you believe you were a dog! My aunty has a name for them, they're called 'Silver Tongues' (google the word). People like Adolf Hitler were silver tongues. They made whole nations bow down to them just by using mere words.
~Words form bonds or break them. Words are so powerful, it's almost impossible to put in words! X) So remember, always choose your words wisely ;)
"We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far" -Swami Vivekananda.

~*The Meeting In Heaven*~

~Well, i was bored, so i scribbles this random thing here. It's not completed yet, i think. Probably be a part two if im not lazy and inspiration or boredom takes over again....
The meeting in Heaven.
They had summoned me, and i have came. I shielded my face from the blinding white light as I entered the arched gates.
"Welcome" they said in chorus.
I greated them back politely, with words as sweet as sugar. They took hold of my hands and I kept walking forward until my eyes became accustomed to the bright light. The clouds beneath my feet were not made up of water vapour, for i was tredding on them.
"Enter" the tone was the same as the first, monotonous.
They had invited me to a meeting. A meeting where the brilliant, creative, inovative and sometimes dumb minds met. I had accepted, and now i am here, standing in front of a building. The building's top went unseen and its hight unknown. Golden in colour, it had a luminous glow to it and contrasted well with the clouds. I entered, and inside there were creatures. Living, thinking, creatures, like me. They were seated in a circle around what i would call a table, a circular table, but a table with no centre. The middle of the table was a void, looking over the universe. I took my seat among them.
"Living by yout motto, i see. Better late than never, as always" greated WinterWing with a smile so sincere that it made you want to smile back, which was what i did.
"Be grateful that i even came" i replied
"Now that everyone is present" boomed the voice of the head of the table that belonged to The Creator, which was clearly the person with the long, white beard. A beard that was similar to Santa Clause's, only longer. "let us begin!"
And so we began. We began with what shapes and sizes we should and would make the things we decided to name As ''Planets". We decided if we were to make the Planets green, red, blue or Yellow and if we should give the Planets designs. Then we argued on what we should put on each Planet. The meeting went on for days, months, years. Finally we had came with up with conclusions, and only the last planet remained to be created.
This planet, all of us decided, was to be different, unique, spectacular, or simply said, special. We had argued on a name for it for weeks until it came to a point where i blurted any name that popped up in my mind.
"FrostMont" said JackFrost, banging the table with his fist.
"Tick-Tock" countered FatherTime.
"Green Lands!" coined MotherNature
"FrostMont" insisted JackFrost
"What about Earth?" i said in a bored tone, causing all of the rooms occupants to turn their gaze at me, and after quite alot of whispering among themselves, each one nodded. I'll never know what made them agree; maybe they were tired of arguing (if that was possible), or maybe they plainly just fancied the name.
"Very well" boomed The Creator. By this time, i had realized that his voice naturally made him sound as if he was yelling at the top of his lungs "Now let us begin Earth's creation"
And with that, The Creator waved his hands. The Universe, which sat in the centre of the circular table, zoomed into a spot where an oval Planet hovered, suspended in it.
We began again, but the construction of Earth consumed much more time that any other planet did. I watched and contributed in awe as i saw mountains, deserts and valleys unfold before me. Streams, rivers, oceans and seas. I heard the splash of water on water and of water on rocks. I smelled the smell of sluphur released by springs. I shivered when JackFrost insisted on having the season of winter, an i ovserved snowflakes fall. I sweated until my clothes were soaked when HeatStroke showed the season of Summer. Autumn was colourful and Fall was wonderful. Fields of green and skies of blue. This new planet, planet Earth, was a marvel. All made up of atoms. Atoms were our puzzle pieces, our building blocks.
We then created creatures to live on and roam it. There was a time when one of us drew a creature with green, scaly, skin and we created two of them, for reproducing purposes, and sent them down to Earth. They, the scaly creatures, soon bored us with their increativeness, so we wiped them out with comets. We kept on changing Earth's geographical map to satisfy us. Then we created other creature
But something was missing. The planet was too quiet, too peaceful.
"Earth requires Inhabitants to tend, maintain and care for it, just like we require a good grooming every once in awhile" said WinterWing.
"Yes, i agree" nodded Rapheal "We must make Souls, Souls like ours, to live in it"
"They have to be intelligent if they are to survive in the conditions and with the creatures we have created and allowed to evolve" said The Creator
"How about we just send a few of our kind there?" suggested Gabriel.
"But who should we send?" qustioned Michael.
DreamKeeper pointed at me "Why, we send him, of course" she said in a voice laced with dreams and imagination. "After all, he was the last to arrvie to this meeting"
I was in shcok and said nothing.
"Yes. And his kind will have the best materials and qualitles to last on Earth. They are inovative and bright. They are also fighters and survivors in nature. Egoistic and filled with pride" said MotherNature without sounding jealous or despiteful. She was just stating facts.
"Not to mention he was the one who named 'Earth' , Earth"
The Creator contemplated on this idea, then nodded.
"You" he geatured at me"
Are to be sent to populate and care for Earth. We shall stop bothering Earth and let you take over"
And with that, the meeting of the Gods was adjourned.

~*Abortion - Baby Killer*~
~This!! This is the video we watched today during Biology!! Tears were shed and eyes averted.... It was sickly disturbing!! Like, the level of disturbing it had was like The Seed Of Chucky disturbing, only times a thousand!! (watch the video, but not ALONE!!) >_< Lords, i pity my teacher for having to watch this every year....
~The goverment should seriously use this video to prevent teenage pregnancies by airing it on TV once in a while.... R.I.P all the innocent babies that have died via abortion....
~My friend (known as Nix online) said that their class was shown an even more grusome video on this topic >_< Well, my class hasn't watched that video yet, but once i have i'll find it on youtube and link it here.... The world should be aware of this torture =(

~Hidden Truths~

~Man!! I have not posted anything for ages!! Trial SPM haitus >_< Anyway, here's a random poem(i think it's a poem) FYI, im posting this via handphone.... First time using Blogger app(don't screw this up, please dont screw this up) >_<
I'm trying so hard to shake of this illusion;
Where no one even cares to listen....
Drowning in a sea of confusion;
I search for a path to the solution;
But swirling mist blurs my vision....
I'm in a world of another dimention;
Where everyone has their own issue or problem....
Ignored are their friends and relations;
Ruled by wicked men and their ambitions!
They have stolen away.. the laughter of children....
I'm simply seeking out the truth to salvation
As i'm hoping to find an answer to this equation.
Now i'm positively sure i've mistaken;
For every single path just gets broken....
Oh! But the path i have taken!
Somehow just gets more and more mysteriously hidden....
By people with power who don't want their secrets to be known;
As everyone has long ago lost their freedom....
THE END.... Or is it??

~I don't fancy blogger app for iPhone.... It's pretty difficult to use and i don't know how to pick font colours!! And life's dull with only one colour .____.
