I suddenly found myself with some unexpected free time, so here's a little something for you bored people out there.

1. Pick 15 of your favourite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search or other search functions.
IN ADDITION: Bonus points if you can name the character who said the line!

Survey from [profile] half_elven17. It's fun to reminisce, even on things that really sucked at the time they happened, because now I just find them funny.

callista: (alphonse)
Stolen from [profile] azra_il  . For all of us who actually miss the 90's but are in denial :P


Yes, I'm alive. No, I still don't feel like blogging anything significant. It just so happened that I finished studying early and I saw this survey while browsing through my f-list. Looking back, I really think the 90's were better in terms of children's shows. No matter how funny Spongebob Squarepants can be, nakakabobo pa rin siya :P And Cartoon Network has definitely deteriorated, IMHO. The loss of Dexter's Lab and Johnny Bravo was a terrible blow. But who has time for TV anyway? :P

I was surprised to find out that I'll be going home in 2 weeks. So time still flies even when you're not having fun (i.e. when you're studying your brains out). PS2, here I come :D

I finally get a breather after weeks of experiencing stress in every possible form, and here I am blogging. Does that seem right to you? (Sorry, Firefly joke). Well, might as well get the most unproductive things out of the way. Here's a music meme nabbed from [profile] scyphs:


In other news, living off-campus is exhausting. I really took my dorm room for granted. I used to be able to go back to my room on a whim and bask in privacy and "free" air-conditioning. Getting to class used to take only 5-10 minutes depending on how lucky I was with the bus. Whenever I wanted something to eat (before 10 pm), I only needed to take the elevator down to the ground floor and go to the convenience store. Where I'm living now, I have to commute to get a bottle of water (the water in Singapore is supposed to be potable but the pipes here are ancient). I need to walk for around 10 minutes UPHILL to get from the bus stop to my block. Not to mention that to get from NUS to the bus stop that goes to my place, I have to walk across an overpass that's several meters above the highway. I'm acrophobic, you know. Yes, I know I'm being whiny, but I also know that I won't be staying in this place for long. I applied for the on-campus waitlist, and even if I don't get anything from that, there's always Oliver's place. Whining about the general suckiness of my current apartment makes me feel better in the meantime.

Argh, I have to go to the lab tomorrow. The cancer cells I'm growing are becoming too prolific and will start dying out if I don't remove some of them. Oh well, such is a researcher's life.

IF YOUR LIFE WAS A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?
So, here's how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc).
2. Put it on shuffle.
3. Press play.
4. For every question, type the song that's playing.
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button.
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool.

Opening Credits: Yellowcard – Life of a Salesman
Waking Up: Linkin Park – Session
First Day of School: Fullmetal Alchemist OST - Brothers
Falling in Love: Parokya Ni Edgar featuring Jay of Kamikazee – Okatokat (LOL)
Fight Song: Rurouni Kenshin OST – Tactics
Breaking Up: Switchfoot – Beautiful Letdown (how appropriate)
Prom: 6 Cycle Mind - Alapaap
Life's just ok: Vertical Horizon – You Say
Mental Breakdown: Avril Lavigne – I’m With You (LOL. Mental breakdown = hooker)
Driving: Tsubasa Chronicle OST – Yume no Tsubasa (Wings of Dream)
Flashback: Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children OST – Tatakau Mono Tachi (Battle Theme)
Getting Back Together: Jewel – Near You Always (again, appropriate)
Birth of Child: NUS Choir – Linden Lea (at least it’s.. peaceful)
Wedding: Sponge Cola – Movie
Finale Battle: John Rzeznik – I’m Still Here (Woot.)
Death Scene: South Border – With A Smile (Aww.. I’m going to die smiling :P Or will everyone be smiling when I die? LOL.)
Funeral Song: Vertical Horizon – Give You Back (interesting)
End Credits: Parokya ni Edgar featuring Francis M – The Yes Yes Show

I'm freeeeeeeeee :D Actually, I've been free since yesterday, but I was enjoying my freedom too much to blog about it. But darn I hate packing -_- Oh well, 4 more days to go. FF XII, here I come :D

Random rant: UROPS application is a LOT more complicated than I expected (UROPS = Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme in Science). The departments I'm interested in didn't upload any research topics so I had to email the professors themselves and BEG them to give me a project, which I really didn't want to do but what the heck -_- On the plus side, one of the former members of NUS Choir happens to be an assistant professor, and her research topics seem interesting (the role of annexins in regulation of cell proliferation and immune response) so I'm hoping she'll remember me (we were both in the Soprano section) and give me a project. But I don't have much time left since I'm going home on Saturday, and I still have to meet with whoever decides to be my supervisor before then. Gah. Stress -_- Tapos na nga exams pero ang dami pa ring problema. Tsk.

List any seven six (because Kuchiki Byakuya is captain of the 6th squad :D) songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're not any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your LiveJournal along with your seven six songs. Then tag seven six (Byakuya = ♥) other people to see what they're listening to.

1. 24 - Switchfoot
And I'm not who I thought I was twenty-four hours ago.. It's a sad song, with *gasp* religious overtones, but I still got hooked.

2. Silvertoes - Parokya ni Edgar
Siguro nga naman ay may mga mas pangit pa sayo.. Pero at least hindi sila nagpapakyut katulad mo.. Grabe ang sama. Haha. Very amusing song.

3. The Saga Begins - Weird Al Yankovic
My, my, this here Anakin guy.. May be Vader someday later but now he's just a smallfry.. Weird Al's creativity never ceases to amaze me. Smells Like Nirvana is also hilariously well-written.

4. Ningyo Hime - Tanaka Rie
Watashi ga anata wo mitsukete.. Ending song of the anime Chobits. I don't know what the lyrics mean (the title means "Mermaid Princess"), but I really like the tune and the singer's voice.

5. Sanctuary - Utada Hikaru
My heart's a battleground.. Theme song of the video game Kingdom Hearts II. Utada Hikaru makes great songs and lyrics, which are a little less weird than what I usually expect from Japanese lyricists (no offense meant, of course :P).

6. The Ordertaker - Parokya ni Edgar
Waiter na gwapito, ano bang meron dito.. This song never fails to make me laugh (which can be quite awkward when I'm sitting in the bus). I think Parokya has gotten stoned one too many times.

Like [profile] carbonrays said, it's disturbingly accurate o_o

From http://colorquiz.com:

Kirsten's Existing Situation

Seeks to share a bond of understanding intimacy in an aesthetic atmosphere of peace and tenderness.

Kirsten's Stress Sources

Feels unappreciated and finds the existing situation disagreeable. Wants personal recognition and the esteem of others to compensate for the lack of like-minded people with whom to ally herself and make herself more secure. Her sensual self-restraint makes it difficult for her to give herself, but the resulting isolation leads to the urge to surrender and merge with another. This disturbs her as she regards such instincts as weaknesses to be overcome; only by not succumbing to them, she feels, can she withstand the difficulties of the situation. Wants to be valued as a desirable associate and admired for her personal qualities.

Kirsten's Restrained Characteristics

Demanding and particular in her relations with her partner or those close to her. but careful to avoid open conflict since this might reduce her prospects of realizing her hopes and ideas.
Wants to broaden her fields of activity and insists that her hopes and ideas are realistic. Distressed by the fear that she may be prevented from doing what she wants; needs both peaceful conditions and quiet reassurance to restore her confidence.
Circumstances are such that she feels forced to compromise for the time being if she is to avoid being cut off from affection or from full participation.

Kirsten's Desired Objective

Wants to make a favorable impression and be regarded as a special personality. Is therefore constantly on the watch to see whether on the watch to see whether she is succeeding in this and how others are reacting to her. this makes her feel she is in control. Uses tactics cleverly in order to obtain influence and special recognition. Susceptible to the esthetic or original.

Kirsten's Actual Problem

Needs to be valued and respected as an exceptional individual, in order to increase her self-esteem and her feeling of personal worth. Resists mediocrity and sets herself high standards.

Kirsten's Actual Problem #2

Depleted vitality has created an intolerance for any further stimulation, or demands on her resources. This sense of powerlessness, combined with frustration that she cannot control events, subjects her to agitation, irritation, and acute distress. She tries to escape these by stubborn insistence on her own point of view, but the general condition of helplessness renders this often unsuccessful. Is therefore very sensitive to criticism and quick to take offense.
