December 4th, 1500. It was my final paper- the Biology paper. An hour and half later, the whole school were in its joyous mood. Students running around, shouting and yelling marked the end of our “war”. I obviously among those yelling…

Dec5th, I landed myself a job as a retail assistant. My job officially commence on Dec 14th. My task? Keep the store tidy, checking stocks, and obviously serving customers. My brand? A renowned brand among gay men. Dealing with these special customers earns me different prospective of experience… The experience completely differs from those experience I earned when I am employed as a waiter 2 years ago.

January 2nd, My first working day of year 2007. My contract as a “Part Timer” officially ended today. I left earlier as usual and I went for a drink with my friend. I managed to board the last train to get home. 15 working days, 11 and half hours daily, I am totally out of shape. I am over exhausted and I need 3 days of sleep to make myself feel energetic again. Pimples on my face are beginning to outnumbering my teeth… Nevertheless, I earned myself with precious experience and an attractive salary.

With the RM800, I begin my pursuit of happiness. 200 bucks kept as “emergency cash reserve”, 200 bucks for 5-6 pieces of brand new tops, 180 bucks for a brand new mp4 player from internet auction and RM100 for a pair of brand new pants. With the remaining 100 bucks, I decided to grab myself something I lust for a long time… a nice timepiece. I managed to find a time shop that offers “student rebates”. The first watch I choose is a Tag Heuer that costs me 180 bucks and the Bulgari even costs twice the amount of the Tag!! OMG… that’s a huge sum I can’t afford, my allocated sum is only a hundred bucks. The watch dealer then started to show me Carrera, and a few brands that marginally cost cheaper. Then I remembered viewing the Rolex Daytona Cosmograph thru the web. I asked for that and he nod his head, indicating there is the watch in his store. 100% mechanical, pure sapphire glass, 100% genuine and comes with a year warranty. I took it with 20 bucks as change. The watch, after the mp4 player, made up my day. On that day, a missing piece of jigsaw is finally found and attached to complete the puzzle.

January 13th, 1800. I switched channel after the Initial D anime I watched begin running its credits. There was a channel broadcasting an anime. Two boys were kneeling down and putting their hands on floor drawn with mystical patters in a circle. Yellow light appeared and soon turned into purple. Then there was a gruesome yell and the Japanese sub appeared: “Big brother 10 years old, little brother 9 years old”. AMV took over and from the AMV, the anime that eventually attracted my attention is FullMetal Alchemist. My anxious grew and grew after watching Episode 2 the following week.

January 21st, I took out a sum of money from the 200 bucks I saved and I bought the full set, Episode 1 to Episode 51. I begin to watch at least 9-10 episodes every night since I bought it.

January 24th before I went out for karaoke with my friends, I decided to jump to conclusion. I watched Episode 50 and 51 before my friend rang me thru the phone. My happy day turns into a sorrow one. For few days, it made me doesn’t smile as often as before and I even lose my appetite. My singing during the karaoke session even got off tune. There was even regret of buying the anime which ended with such sad chronology.

January 31st, I bought the Shambala movie finally. It was the final DVD of the same title available at the store! The moment I walked out from the store, my friends finally saw my smile back and I can feel they are relieved. Such great friends, they share whenever it is happy or sorrow. I watched the movie on the following day at 3am before I went to bed.

February 1st, I am scrolling the web for FMA screenshots or pictures to be edited as my siggie in another forum. I opened up Yahoo! and on the search bar, I keyed in “FullMetal Alchemist” and tapped the Enter key. The first result is about the movie synopsis and the second search result managed to attract my attention… “Fan site for the anime show Fullmetal Alchemist that features forums, news, pictures, and more.” I clicked it and I was redirected to www.fullmetal-alchemist.com. At first, I intend to save up only a few pictures from the gallery. I don’t have the intention to register as a member. After a few hours of deep thinking, I am officially a member at late evening. My first day at the forum? Great. I spent about 4 hours lingering around and reading the Rules and Regulations given by Tombow. And of course, I landed myself warm welcomes from members after I posted my 6th post in the Newcomer’s tread. The FMA.com awards are running when I joined so I even took part in voting in a few categories. I even spent about 20 minutes reading the Beginner’s Guide to Forum Decorum tread alone and from there, I am knew I was a n00b on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd day. So do on the 4th, 5th and 6th. On the seventh day, I decided to break the barrier; I am determined to be out from that title. I started to do things beyond a newcomer will do. I emphasize on the rules and even caught a mod for posting spam with the ‘F’ word that rhymed with duck but only to know that my post has been changed into spam message minutes later. I quickly adapt myself to the forum, I tried making my mistakes the minimum, but only to know later on my biggest mistakes is in 50% of my total posts. I got my tenses all jumbled up. In the end, I am still a n00b afterall, I am lack of experience and while I correct others, I doesn’t take the initiative to correct myself. To those that I hurt in the past, I offer my sincere apology.

Tomorrow marks my 50th day I am in this forum great forum. Eversince I mingled with great forumers like you all, my plain normal unemployed life turns out to be the most precious and the most wonderful and also the happiest day. Not only yesterday, but also on today and tomorrow, tomorrow and tomorrow. Thank you guys and girls for making my decision not to look after another job prove to be the most brilliant action I have taken for the past 17 years. This is the ultimate reward I earned after I paid the price.

The highlight of my excursion was finding out that Fullmetal Alchemist Vol. 0 existed. It was in Chinese and I was driven nuts just trying to guess what might be in it. In the end, my friends told me to use the $7 to buy the book (but it included Vol. 14!...in Chinese) and find out. It turned out to be a book full of sketches smile.gif As a bonus, I get to practice my Chinese through reading Vol. 14. biggrin.gif

I can't decide which I rather go to tho.

The computer is in the main room and he never likes me being on for more than 2 hours sleep.gif) so, I'd like to go there. However, I'd also like to stay home because dad's alluded to wanting to put in hardwoord floor (finally) in my room this break...which means he'll be cleaning my room out, and throwing stuff of mine out. ph34r.gif Uh ohes!

December 4th, 1500. It was my final paper- the Biology paper. An hour and half later, the whole school were (was) in its (a) joyous mood. Students running around, shouting and yelling marked the end of our “war”. I * (was) obviously among those yelling…

Dec5th, I landed myself a job as a retail assistant. My job officially commence (commenced) on Dec 14th. My task? Keep (Keeping) the store tidy, checking stocks, and obviously serving customers. My brand? A renowned brand among gay men. Dealing with these special customers earns me different prospective (*sp* perspective) of experience… The experience completely differs from those experience I earned when I am (was) employed as a waiter 2 years ago.

January 2nd, My first working day of * (the) year 2007. My contract as a “Part Timer” officially ended today. I left earlier as (than) usual and I went * (out) for a drink with my friend. I managed to board the last train to get home. 15 working days, 11 and half hours daily, I am totally out of shape. I am over exhausted and I need 3 days of sleep to make myself feel energetic again. Pimples on my face are beginning to outnumbering (outnumber) my teeth… Nevertheless, I earned myself with (*uneeded*) precious experience and an attractive salary.

With the RM800, I begin my pursuit of happiness. 200 bucks kept as “emergency cash reserve”, 200 bucks for 5-6 pieces of brand new tops, 180 bucks for a brand new mp4 player from internet auction and RM100 for a pair of brand new pants. With the remaining 100 bucks, I decided to grab myself something I lust (have lusted) for a long time… a nice timepiece. I managed to find a time shop that offers “student rebates”. The first watch I choose (chose) is (was) a Tag Heuer that costs (cost) me 180 bucks and the Bulgari even costs twice the amount of the Tag!! OMG… that’s a huge sum I can’t afford, my allocated sum is only a hundred bucks. The watch dealer then started to show me Carrera, and a few brands that marginally cost cheaper. Then I remembered viewing the Rolex Daytona Cosmograph thru (through) the web. I asked for that and he nod (nodded) his head, indicating there is the watch (the watch was) in his store. 100% mechanical, pure sapphire glass, 100% genuine and comes with a year warranty. I took it with 20 bucks as change. The watch, after the mp4 player, made up (*uneeded*) my day. On that day, a missing piece of jigsaw is (was) finally found and attached to complete the puzzle.

January 13th, 1800. I switched * (the) channel after the Initial D anime I watched begin running its credits. There was a channel broadcasting an anime. Two boys were kneeling down and putting their hands on floor drawn with mystical patters in a circle. Yellow light appeared and soon turned into purple. Then there was a gruesome yell and the Japanese sub appeared: “Big brother 10 years old, little brother 9 years old”. AMV took over and from the AMV, the anime that eventually attracted my attention is FullMetal Alchemist. My anxious (anxiousness) grew and grew after watching Episode 2 the following week.

January 21st, I took out a sum of money from the 200 bucks I saved and I bought the full set, Episode 1 to Episode 51. I begin (began) to watch at least 9-10 episodes every night since I bought it.

January 24th before I went out for karaoke with my friends, I decided to jump to * (the) conclusion. I watched Episode 50 and 51 before my friend rang me thru (yeah, thru is easier to type but the correct spelling is "through") the phone. My happy day turns (turned) into a sorrow one. For * (a) few days, it made me doesn’t (not) smile as often as before and I even lose (lost) my appetite. My singing during the karaoke session even got off tune. There was even regret of buying the anime which ended with such sad chronology.

January 31st, I bought the Shambala movie* (,) finally. It was the final DVD of the same title available at the store! The moment I walked out from the store, my friends finally saw my smile back and I can (could) feel * (that) they are (were) relieved. Such great friends, they share whenever it is happy or sorrow (they share the happy and sorrowful moments). I watched the movie on the following day at 3am before I went to bed.

February 1st, I am scrolling the web for FMA screenshots or pictures to be edited as my siggie in another forum. I opened up Yahoo! and on the search bar, I keyed in “FullMetal Alchemist” and tapped the Enter key. The first result is about the movie synopsis and the second search result managed to attract my attention… “Fan site for the anime show Fullmetal Alchemist that features forums, news, pictures, and more.” I clicked it and I was redirected to www.fullmetal-alchemist.com. At first, I intend to save up only a few pictures from the gallery. I don’t have the intention to register as a member. After a few hours of deep thinking, I am officially a member at late evening. My first day at the forum? Great. I spent about 4 hours lingering around and reading the Rules and Regulations given by Tombow. And of course, I landed myself warm welcomes from members after I posted my 6th post in the Newcomer’s tread. The FMA.com awards are running when I joined so I even took part in voting in a few categories. I even spent about 20 minutes reading the Beginner’s Guide to Forum Decorum thread alone and from there (then on), I am knew (Knew) I was a n00b on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd day. So do on the 4th, 5th and 6th (umm...?). On the seventh day, I decided to break the barrier; I am (was) determined to be out from that title (shed that title). I started to do things beyond a newcomer will do. I emphasize on the rules and even caught a mod for posting spam with the ‘F’ word that rhymed with duck but only to know that my post has (had) been changed into spam message * (a few) minutes later. I quickly adapt (adapted) myself to the forum, I tried making my mistakes * (to) the minimum, but only to know later on my biggest mistakes is (was) in 50% of my total posts. I got my tenses * (were) all jumbled up. In the end, I am still a n00b afterall, I am lack of experience and while I correct others, I doesn’t take the initiative to correct myself. To those that I hurt in the past, I offer my sincere apology.

Tomorrow marks my 50th day I am (*uneeded*) in this forum, great forum. Eversince I mingled with great forumers like you all, my plain normal unemployed life turns (turned) out to be the most precious and the most wonderful and also the happiest day (days). Not only yesterday, but also on today and tomorrow, tomorrow and tomorrow (laugh.gif). Thank you guys and girls for making my decision not to look after another job prove to be the most brilliant action I have taken for the past 17 years. This is the ultimate reward I earned after I paid the price.

“What is the use of cash, when you are happy when it is in a stack but in the end turn (turns into) sorrow when it left (leaves) only a piece? Cash that lost can be earned back, but happiness once lost is forever lost.”

REMARK: wahaha...sorry for the long post, but these thoughts has been lingering around my head for weeks! Learn something if you can and enjoy my journal in finding this forum ^.^

@Quistis Is that you featured on your avie?


Wow, I actually enjoyed correcting that blink.gif
And that's not quite 50%.. maybe only say, 20%?

Good luck! biggrin.gif We're rooting for you.

Current Thoughts:

- Got home semi-early. So happy.

Class was very pleasant today! Still the youngest. unsure.gif I sat next to Ann today and I noticed it before but it was only reaffirmed that she's a very shy person. Not shy as in 'quiet', but more as in she doesn't carry herself with a lot of confidence. Saying stuff like- "Well, I know this is a really bad story- I just threw it together; it's really not good." It reminds me of how I often feel when it comes to my art and writing. I hope I can overcome that.

Went to the Axeman because mom wanted to get some stuff (That store is so neat) and there was a Korean grocery store a few doors down. And guess what the first awesome thing I discovered there was! They had corn tea on sale! Yaaaaay! I've been looking for some for a very long time now. <3 Also got some other cooking stuffs, like a bottle of okonomi sauce which is still expensive but cheaper than usual. And some awesome little snacks- I'll have to show them to you.

I'm gonna have to go back to that store; they have a good selection.
Maybe next time I'll pick up some octopus and maybe azuki rice cakes or plum ice cream. They had a lot of little frozen rice cakes, mostly Japanese, which I found curious. I'd like to try a few flavors.


I think a group of 12 year olds was laughing at my shoes today. huh.gif Can't imagine why; they're positively bitchin' shoes. Poor dears must not understand. (They were acting somewhat oddly; walking in and out of the store and sneaking passing glances at my legs while stifling giggles) Oh well; I'm glad I made them amused.
