Really don't know what to say anymore!

Ever wondered why life sometimes is so tiring when you don't even do anything? Let me tell you something about myself.
I hate to work. Even when I was little, I never like studying. And I thought all this while I was good at nothing just drawing. But I thought being a drawer when I grow up is gonna be fun. No need to feel stress because cartoons are so colourful and back then, things which are colourful always makes me happy. When I went to college, I took animation course. Which my dad really really rejected me to took it but there's a promise that we made that made him keep his mouth shut.
Well, anyway, I met my current bestfriend there. She's an animation freak(she knows practically everything about animation). I thought she was cool. Really cool. Since we share the same knowledge and obviously I thought that I and her was at the same standard when I saw that actually she and me...well, she was way better. I look up to her. But from then till now, I realise something. Something which I think that I did think about her from lastime....but I always deny it.
I feel she has no life. Everyday in her life is only work work work. How could someone even live like this? I mean, normally when you just wanna find money, you work for money. Everyone works for money. But to her, she works for fucks. And seeing her stressing herself up and get panicked here and there, what's the hell is that for? You're just torturing yourself. And the other part is, you tend to push back every single day just to sit down and doing nothing but drawing? I mean, isn't she tired of doing that? Everyone will be tired doing that same old damn thing over again everyday.
I didn't exactly quitted animation...I do it once in a while. She loves to be called workaholic? Oh my god..Then she's crazy. No wonder she has not even one guy after her for so long. Recently was like only last year....for the whole years she has been living....only one?I really do not wana write this but seriously...WAKE UP LA! She's the same age as me and you wanna waste your days by doing and working like a dog?Well, seriously, I don't wanna be mean, I hate workaholics. I wanna have fun. I don't intend to skip whatever I have in mind just because of work. Even if I do so, I will scream! And I will curse and I'll dislike what or whoever it is who instructed me to do so.
She wants to work so much and die later and waste her time then be my guest. I had enough of her stupid working attitude as it is....Really got nothing to say anymore. As always, she only knows how to complain but....SHE DO NOT DO ANYTHING TO FIX IT!!! It's like been in the past 6 months I've been living with her like this and I could not stand it. I can say, she's crazier than before. Sorry, I HATE WORKAHOLICS!!!If you're a workaholic, don't come near me and stay away, unless you know how to balance it up!!!

Sacrifice Episode 24

Carl was holding the object. He is trying his best to draw whatever he think it is.
Carl thinking: What's the object? Damn.
Alex was down there putting her hands together hopefully he can get to know at least what's the object.
Alex thinking: Come on baby. You can do it.
After a moment feeling it, Carl just thought what he thought it was. A basket with fruits in it. So he took his pencil, and draw at the art paper in front of him. ALMOST half of the crowd was watching Carl. Carl took a deep breath and started drawing. After a few hours, all the contestants are done. Then they put down their pencils.
MC: Alright....Looks like it's times up. Come back here half and hour later for the results. That would be all.
Carl went down the stairs and Alex straight away throw her arms around him.
Alex: You were great Carl. So great up there.
Carl:Thanks. I was so nervous.
Alex: I know. But you did well up there.
Carl: I did well as in appearance but...not too sure about my drawing. I wish I can see.
Alex: Let me test you. What was in front of you?
Carl: If I'm not mistaken, is it a basket with fruits in it?
Alex face lit up and hug him again.
Alex: That's exactly what it is. I'm so proud of you.
Carl: Thanks.
He hug her back tightly. So both of them walk together at the shopping mall. Half an hour later they went back to the hall. The MC was already there announcing whose is the winner.
MC: Okay, I know that everyone is waiting for this moment. Okay, we have 3 winners. The 3rd winner is....Lim Kooi Sen.
Everyone cheered. After the guy went up and received his gift, he went down.
MC: aLRIGHT, on to the next winnder. 2nd place is won by....Rachel Sam Lawrence.
And once again, eveyone cheered. Alex was squessing Carl's hand tightly.
Alex thinking: Come on.
MC: Alright, and finally, the last.....the moment you guys are waiting for. The winner for the art competition is.......Billy Thomas.
Everyone cheered. Alex was so shock. Her jaw drop. She look at Carl. Carl's face was also dissapointed. After everything was over, Alex look at Carl while walking back to the car.
Alex: least you took part.
Carl: I already told you. There's no point. I did not win anything.
Alex: Carl...
Carl: Let's just go home.
Alex nodded and drove off. After fetching him home, Carl didn't even say bye to her. He just came out from the car and went straight into his house. Alex knew how hurt he is. And the worst thing is that Alex was the one persuaded him to do it. Alex went back to her house and fall to bed. She feels like whatever she thought it's the best for him, it always turns out wrong.
Alex thinking: Am I hurting him?
The next day at college, Carl was hanging out with the others. Lee knows about that results and did not wanna question any other things more. Not long after that, Alex came by. Cark did not talk to any of them after she came. So all of them were chatting except for Alex and Carl. Alex could not stand the treatment that he is giving her.
Alex thinking: I don't think it is my fault.
Then Alex just turn and walk off. Lee realise that.
Lee: Hey..Alex...
Carl: What is it?
Lee: She just walk off.
Carl thinking: Really?
Lee: Is everything okay between you and her?
Carl: Not too sure.
Lee: Go talk to her man.
Lee's right, Carl himself is not sure why is he even acting like this. So he slowly turn and walk. Lee was following him. Back at Alex, she has no idea where she wanna go, so she walk back to her class where there's no one in the class now since class has not yet started. Tears was streaming down her face.
Alex thinking: Should I end this relationship?
Then someone came in. Lee....followed by Carl. Alex was shock that Carl was there.
Alex: What are you guys doing here?
Carl: I need to apologise to you. I'm sorry. I know I shouldn't give you this cold attitude. Sorry.
Alex: Carl, I think it is best if we end this relationship.
Carl and Lee was shock to hear that.
Carl: What? Why?
Alex:I....I'm just making things worst for you. I was the one said I will take care of you but it seems....I'm just hurting you.
Carl: Alex, you're not.
Alex: You're lieing. I am...
Lee: Alex, Carl says no. Don't do this to him. He really loves you.
Alex look at Carl's face.
Alex: Carl....I....I wanna do something for you.
Carl: Do me a favour...Do something for yourself first okay?
Alex started to burst out and thorw her arms around him sobbing.
Alex crying: Oh Carl....I'm so sorry.
Lee just left them after that. Somehow he knows that Carl and Alex will never leave each other. Even if one of them wants to leave, it's always a force thing. Nothing serious like any other couples out there. At lunch time, they were eating normally with the other people. Then after college, Carl and Alex went back to Carl's house. Carl was doing some art when Alex took a nap at his couch. After napping for 3 hours, Alex came to his art room.
Alex: Hey baby.
Carl:'re awake?
Alex: Yeah. I'm gonna go to the bathroom first.
Carl: Okay.
Then she went to the bathroom. Before she reach there, a room next to the bathroom, something falls off from the table. Alex went in that room and pick it up. But...the documents that drop off is actually pictures of him and his ex girlfriend. And when Alex look closely, his eyes...
Alex thinking: He's not blind before?

Kelly Clarkson's concert was great but sadly there was no encore!!! ROAR!

Hey everyone. Yesterday, me and Jen went to watch Kelly Clarkson's concert. It was awesome. Crwods were cheering like usual and all. But what's the most disspointed thing is, there was no encore and also, the crowds didn't really cheer. I was this people all from where? From kampung ka?
I was quite dissappointed that no one did cheer for her to come back. I was sure hoping that she come out and sing her first singles which was 'a moment like this'.I thought she was saving if for the encore but no. She didn't sing it at all. I was like, what?
I feel Kelly Clarkson's concert was not really a big hit compare to those that I went before like MCR, Avril and The Click Five. Their merchandise was also cool. Kelly Clarkson's all I can say is that, her concert, the way she perform seriously rock the whole stadium but their merchandise and about singing to her happy birthday, did not happened...although some crowd on my right was actually trying to sing but Kelly can't hear. DUH! But the most saddest thing is the encore. Sigh..but still, I didn enjoyed the money didn't go to waste. Hahaha!

Sacrifice Episode 22

Alex was in Carl's house day dreaming. She keeps on thinking about how to get an eye donater. Carl came by at Alex.
cARL: Hey honey, you're so quiet today.
Alex: Carl, are you sure you don't want to take part at the art competition?
Carl: Baby, sigh, we've gone through this.
Alex: I know but...I...
Carl: Alex, can you please...just drop it. I do not want you to get stress up in all of this and stuff. The more you do this, the more I'm getting pissed off.
Alex just kept quiet. She wanted to cry. All she wanted Carl to do was just to get up and draw again out there. She took her bag and leave. Carl heard the door close.
Carl: Alex?
No answer.
Carl thinking: Alex, sigh...I'm sorry,
Then Alex went out from Carl's house, into her car, start the engine and drove off. Tears was falling from her eyes.
Alex: I just want him to get back on his two feet. I don't want him to lose hope in art. All he ever do is just scold me whenever we talk about it.
But Alex was not paying attention on the road. There was an incoming lorry came and honk her. She quickly snapped out of it and swurled to the right but luckily she gain control but still was traumatised. She park her car at the side of the road trying to catch her breath.
Alex thinking: Oh my god. I almost died.
Then suddenly, her phone received a text message. It was from Lee.
Lee: Hey....are you free now? Care to have a drink with me?
Ales thought for awhile. She haven't been hanging out with Lee for quite sometime esepcially after that incident. And now, she really need someone she could talk to. She took her phone and text back.
Alex text: Sure thing. Where to meet?
Back at Carl, he was sitting in front of his desk. Feeling shitty, he really don't get the idea wht Alex wants him so much to get back into the art line. Although he is not gonna involve in the art field, he is still practicing drawing.
Carl thinking: Maybe I should call her?
At Lee and Alex, Alex told him everything.
Lee: Well, you gotta know Carl, if he thinks he is done for,he won't do anything about it. There's no point in pushing him doing things that he thinks that he can't do it.
Alex: But he doesn't know that.
Lee: Alex, I know you love him...but if you love him so much, I think you need to give him space.
Alex: I think I'm given him enough space already.
Lee: Oh well...
Alex: I'm going to the ladies.
Lee: Alright.
When Alex left, her phone was ringing. Her phone was on the table. Lee just ignore it. Then finally it stops. Then it ring again. Lee look at the handphone screen and it was actually Carl calling. So he pick up the phone.
Lee: Hello?
Carl thinking: What? Lee?
Lee: Hello? Carl is that you?
Then Carl slowly just put down the phone.
Lee: Hel-...what the?
Then Alex came back.
Alex: What's wrong?
Lee: Oh..I don't know. Carl called you but when I said hello, he didn't answer back.
Alex: He didn't say anything?
Lee: No.
Alex: Okay. That's weird.
Back at Carl, he was confuse.
Carl: Why is it....why is she with him?
That night, Alex went back to her house. She was so exhausted but she was happy that she get to hang out with Lee again as normal friends. After she took her shower, she pick up the phone to call up Carl.
Carl; Hello?
Alex: Hey.
Carl: Are you done dating with him?
Alex: Dating with him? Who?
Carl: You still wanna act?
Alex: You mean your bestfriend?
Carl: Well, he won't be my bestfriend if he is doing this quite often.
Alex: Doing what?
Carl: Asking you out.
Alex: now I can't go out with your guy friend?
Carl: Of course you can but at least you need to inform me.
Alex: You made me go out with him.
Carl: What the hell? How did I even did that? I did not mention even once. I never even mention his name.
Alex: You hurt me.
Carl: So?
Alex: So...that's the whole god damn reason why I went out with him.
Carl: Look, you have problems with me, you need to talk to me, not some other guy who happens to be my bestfriend.
Alex: And why not? He is your bestfriend. He knows you. So like I know you, he knows me, and he knows you, he can judge.
Carl: Judge? He knows me so well ha? What makes you think like this? Just because of the word call 'bestfriend' means he knows me? Does he know that I'm gonna come after him ha?
Alex: What has gotten into you? I don't know who the heck are you anymore. Why would you wanna get angry at your own bestfriend?
Carl: Cause he made me mad. He cross the line..Didn't you realise?
Alex: Look, call me up when you're all cool down, I do not wanna talk to you when you're like this.
Carl: Alex, don't you dare put down the phone on me.
Alex: Listen here moron, I almost died today okay? While I was driving home, I was tearing, thanks to you for not waking up that you have talent in art but don't wanna give the art competition a chance to try again. I was sad in that situation, and I was only trying to help that made you pissed off and I could not concetrate on the road. An incoming lorry nearly hit me and I could be a goner. So....I just need someone to comfort me. Either than someone who just only hurt me which is you. Coincidently, he text me, and I agreed on meeting him up. So, the nextime you wanna get angry at someone, get angry at your damn self.
Alex just slam down the phone without waiting any answer from Carl.
Carl thinking: Nice going moron. I just only hurt her again. Twice in one day.
Back at Alex side, she was wrapping herself up with her two arms and was sobbing. She could not believe that helping Carl to get back to his art line instead of making both of them feel better, they're hurting even more.

Carl: Well, sadly to say that you guys will not have a chance and wait longer.
After lunch, Alex do not have classes after lunch. So after saying bye to Carl, she went to the hospital. Carl don't know about that. She didn't tell him. So she followed the address that was written on the card. At last she found it. She took a deep breath and went inside and search for the person who is in charge. After that, the person who is in charge, ask her to go in her room.
Miss Lim: Please have a seat.
Alex: Thanks. Actually, doctor, have a boyfriend who happens to be blind. I was thinking is it okay if there's anyone...anyone at all who can donate an eye for him?
Miss Lim: I don't know about that.
Alex: Please. He really...really needs his eye. He is an art student. Without his eye, all his talents are wasted.
Miss Lim: You do love him a lot I can tell.
Alex: Of course.
Miss Lim: Actually there is one person.
Alex:Really? Who? Can I see this person?
Miss Lim: He is having leukemia. So...yeah...he is gonna pass away soon. So he said he don't mind giving his eye away for good use.
Alex: it save?
Miss Lim: Of course it is.
Alex: Okay. Um..can I see this person?
Miss Lim: want it?
Alex: I don't mind if he don't mind.
Miss Lim: I'll let you see him now.
Alex: So soon?
Miss Lim: Why not? The sooner the better.
Alex: Okay.
So Miss Lim lead Alex to the patients room. Miss Lim knock on the patients door and slowly open the door.
Miss Lim: Hi Daniel. How are you feeling?
Alex walk in and to her shockness, that guy was bold.
Alex thinking: Oh my god. So pityful.
Daniel: Better.
Then Daniel saw Alex.
Daniel: Who is she?
Miss Lim: Oh...she wants to see you.
Danniel: Do I know her?
Miss Lim: Don't think you know her...Alex..come here.
Alex slowly walk and stand in front of the bed.
Alex; Hi.
Miss Lim: I'll leave both of you.
Then Miss Lim close the door. Alex look back at Daniel.
Alex: Hi...Um..I heard that Miss Lim told me that you don't mind donating your eye?
Daniel: Oh..about that.
Alex: see..I have a boyfriend. And...he is really into art. But because he is blind, he tends to lose interest and this is very sad thing to see in him. I thuoght of doing a surgery on his eye to make him get up on his feet again.
Daniel: About donating my eye...well...I'm pretty scared to give away. Although..I know I'm dieing...but I still wanna see things around me.'re having second thoughts?
Daniel: Kinda
Alex:'s okay.
Daniel: Well, I wish you luck in finding one.
Alex: Thanks...and thanks for sparing your time.
Daniel: No problem.
Then Alex went out. She was dissapointed.
Alex thinking: Well, it looks like there's no luck for Carl.
When she was halfway back to her house, Carl called her up.
Alex: Yes baby?
Carl: Where are you? My class is over.
Alex: Okay. I'll come pick you up now.
Carl: Okay.
Then Alex went and pick up Carl. They went to Carl's house,
Carl: So...where did you go just now?
Alex: where.
She lied.
Alex: Just...driving around.
Carl: I see.
Alex thinking: Sigh, why am I even lieing to him? I feel like such a bad person now.

Carl: Does it even look like you?
Alex: Yes baby. It does.
Carl: Thank god.
Alex: Can I scan it and print it out? I want a copy.
Carl: Sure.
Alex: I still can't believe it. You don't know how I look like but just by touching me, you know the slightest idea and picture it in your mind. That's brilliant.
Carl: Man, baby, praise me too much.
Then they kiss again. The next day, Alex went to supermarket. She was shopping and she heard some random announcment at the supermarket hall. She just went and check it out.
MC: We will be having an art competition this sunday. Who interested please fill in this form and you're just steps away in winning RM30,000.
Alex thinking: RM30,000? Oh my god. That's a lot.
MC:All you have to do is just to draw an object that we're gonna put on that day in front here. Draw as creative as you can, and you will win that ammount of money. But that's the first price. There also consolation prizes. The brochures are at the information counter. Thank you.
Alex thinking: Hmm, Carl might be interested.
So Alex went and take the brochure. And went straight to Carl's house.
Alex: Carl?
Carl: Right here at the back.
Then Alex went to the back.
Alex: Hey baby. I got something I wanna show you.
Carl: What is it?
Then Alex said everything.
Carl: What? I'm not taking part.
Alex: Why not? Think about that money. You can even do an eye surgery on that.
Carl: Dear, an operation likes this? You need t find a donater who is willing to donate an eye to you.
Alex: Um...we can find a can ask the hospital to find for us.
Carl: No Alex. You even said it yourself. Draw something which is right in front of you. Do you think I can see what's the object?
Alex: Well, maybe we can tell the MC that you can't see and you just need to touch it and you'll be able to do it.
Carl: Alex, you're crazy. I can do that because I love you. I don't love that object.
Alex: Excuse me? You call me what? Crazy?
Carl: I don't mean that. I'm sorry.'m not joining. Thanks. I'm sorry for that.
Alex knows that it is impossible for Carl to join but he can always try. Then Alex just went to the hall and sit down. Not long after that Carl came out from the back and sit down next to her. They both weren't talking until Carl decided to start first.
Carl: Baby, I quitted art for a few months already. I can't see. It's useless. I know you want to help me but...sigh...

Lee: Hey Alex. What's wrong?
Alex: Nothing.
Lee: Had a fight with your dear?
Alex: No...It's just I was just trying to help him get back on track in the art line...but he seems so reluctant on it.
Lee: Oh...maybe he doesn't want to live in the past anymore. Since he has you.
Alex: But's such a wonderful thing. It's his passion. How can he just throw away like this? I thought he was unique.
Lee: Oh come on. Just because of that? I'm sure he won't just throw away like that.
Alex: Sigh..Hopefully. Come on. Carl is there already.
Lee: Okay.
Then continue the next day. Alex was having a flu.
Carl: You better go and see the doctor after this.
Alex: Yeah....I will.
Carl: I'll company you.
Alex: No....I don't want you to get infected by me.
Carl: Alex, honey, I'm your boyfriend. Please let me do something.
Alex smile to herself. She feels so lucky having a boyfriend like this. Their relationship seems to be perfect.
Alex: Alright. You can come.
So after college, Alex and Carl went to the doctor. After the doctor examine her, she went to the counter to pay. Then she overheard the doctor went to the nurse and said...

Bloody hell!!

Hey guys. I wanna quit this job and find another job. I think I just have about enough lieing to myself and people around here that I can do this job. Just like what Calvin said. If I want something, I can do it. That's what he said. So...I think I'll follow his advice and do something else. Something that I'm good at.
Now I think I'm gonna look back and see what I'm good at and start looking back to scratch one. Start applynig again. Who knows? Calvin might be right. I'm just lieing to myself. I'm just scared. I need to stand up one more time and look forward and look what is on the other side.
Calvin said I need to change to be divert. Change another way to think animation in another advance thing. So.....whether is it movies, cartoon, production, advertising, he wants me to take all that and put it in one ball that's called animation. So whatever it is...I will take animation as everything. Not only cartoons.
Come to think of it, he does makes sense after calming myself down and look back.Well, I'm so happy after hearing what Calvin said that I can just have anything I want. Just by knowing me for a few days, this guy can see right through in me...That I can do almost anything. I just need to put my heart and my mind to it. And he is right. Well, I guess, there's nothing much to say anymore. Just have to start looking for a job first...and then start applying. Thanks again Calvin!
