The color code test

Your result for The Color Code Test...

Color Code: WHITE: The Peace Keeper

9% Red, 17% Blue, 54% White and 20% Yellow!


Here is the basics: For a more in depth analysis, I suggest you look up the Color Code, and take a more intensive test.


WHITE MOTIVE: PEACE


WHITE NEEDS: To feel good (inside), To be allowed their own space, To be respected, Tolerance.


WHITE WANTS: To withhold insecurities, Kindness, Independence, Contentment.


SUMMARY: Whites are motivated by peace. They will do almost anythign to avoid confrontation. They like to flow through life without hassle or discomfort. Feeling good is even more important to them then being good. Whites need kindness. They resent being scolded. They dislike harsh words. They open up instantly to people who are kind, but Whites recoil from those who are hostile. Whites prefer quiet strength. they enjoy thier quiet independence. This can often be percieved as bullheadedness. Whites like to keep a low profile. They like to be asked their opinions but they won't volunteer them. Whites are independent. Unlike Reds and Blues who want to control others, Whites seek only to avoid being controlled. They don't like to be pushed, and they can be fearsome when they finally "blow up." Whites are motivated by other peoples desires. They want suggestions however, not demands.

Comments: Interestingly..this test was actually one test that was spot on. Every single line in the whole analysis is very true indeed. But that's me for you. Have always been this way since forever. But I suppose being a peacekeeper is fine for certain situations.

Ever changing....

Ana (CLANNAD Original Soundtrack)

Lyrics: Ogiwara Yuu
Vocal: Lia

The place changes and goes. Like a wind, like clouds.
Like the traces of the heart, no halt at the places.

The place is so far away. be far apart.
people's hand does not reach,so merely has (the) worship.

The place is a lofty lord. can't meet nobody put on.
We will lose the place.so lofty which changes.

Not all were desired. However, we're never sad.
still, there is still the place.far away. far away.

(The wind) blows through the place. an endless,with all.
Like the ripple float on the water, It blows as it goes.

the place is No make at all. Nothing is shown.
Like the sand clasped by hand, It falls vainly.

The place is (a) profound lord,and wear the vain faint light.
But we will find it in the place.The hut at which it stands still.

if not concerned with all,It will maintain that No dye.
therefore there is still the hut.It's lonly, solitary.

no halt at the wind.it soars to the sky.
Like the verdure (which) meets with sunrise, It grows up as reborn.

The hut has held new one.that's different from all.
like the sand castle of the children,but realized with the mind.

The person is a vain statue.wear taciturnity calm.
still,We will know a huge flow.It is stopped by nobody.

soon,the wind wears the snow cloud. will be dyed to snow-white.
Summer grass will incline.No sunlight,feebly shade.

The place buried in deep snow.like the collapsing castle.
like the head of the shade,figure will be thrown away

The hut buried in deep snow.It sinks in to the flood.
and The "not dyeing" is dyed out,and waits for a oppose one.

Even if all are healed, be gonna no return.
there is still the place.far away. far away.

The place changes and goes. Like a wind, like clouds.
Like the traces of the heart, no halt at the places.

The place is a lofty lord. can't meet nobody put on.
still,there is still the place.far away. far away.

(Lyrics found from animelyrics.com by the way..nice site)

Don't mind the Engrish...it's still a beautiful song. When this song was played at Kouko's wedding (Ep9) and Tomoyo's meeting with Tomoya in the snow (Ep24), it was perfect for the mood...

...damn I'm feeling sad again.

Gloomy days.

Lately I feel pretty gloomy.

It's not difficult to explain though. If you gave me this freedom this size I would surely say yes. But now...somehow I think that I am better off without it. Every day follows the same routine now and I've got to get a job soon...and even that's not going smooth. I'm applying by the masses and so far...not going well. This week is a dry spell = not a single interview.

I do know I've got to get a job by September...but suddenly even I'm not sure of that anymore. Eesh....

Besides that?

I feel like erasing myself out of existance for this gloomyness....I'd like to fly away somewhere far away...hmm..I think listening to piano pieces when you're a bit on the depressed side gets to you. Oh, and reading on sad story mangas too (Tomoyo After ~Dear Shining Memories~, I'm looking right at you).

[No, I'm not going to jump off a cliff and die -_-]

Oh well...just got to intensify efforts..before this gets worse.

In which times are getting harder...

Been away for abit (and mood's not too good these days)...I'll tell what I've been through lately.

>Friday<
I went for an interview at APL, an international shipping company for a position of Documentation Coordinator at MidValley. At first it didn't seem too bad, even at the interview room. Alas, I closed the door to this job myself (yes, not the interviewer). Here's why.

The pay was not that great. Yes, I'm a fresh grad, I'm not entitled to complain at all about that...but the reason I complained was because I will have to work odd hours. No, I'm not going to be doing some 9am to 6pm work hour, I'll be working at like..shift based hours. Still 9 hours, but I'll be working till 1am (starting from 4pm). However, it's not like I wasn't informed about this BEFORE the interview - so why did I still go for it you may ask?

Simple.

On their website, it was posted that there was two options, first being the late hours (one that I was offered), second was the usual hours (which is fine by me). I hope I could ask for the usual hours, but sadly they aren't hiring anyone for those hours at that point. Now, you could say, just work lah!

I did consider the prospect of working late hours (thats why I accepted the interview in the first place). But by the interview time I've come to realise that it's simply difficult for me. First off I have no own transport (which I should; but that's for another day) - that means going home at 12 or 1 is hard. Second was the fact that I simply can't leave my grandfather alone at night. Sorry, nowadays the world ain't a safe place - especially at night - and I've come to worry about his safety because of that.

If only they had those early hours I would have gone for it....but it's not happening...

The interviewer did point out that my degree entitled me to a higher pay, but they simply couldn't pay me what I wanted since they did have a fee structure to follow (understandable)...the interviewer even said it's better for me to find somewhere else coz of that.

But as time passes by (even now as I type) - I've come to realise that it's getting very difficult to get a decent job with my kind of degree (2nd lowers). I won't regret this - what good does regret does? I just have to keep on looking. And time isn't on my side...

To carry on with my day - I spent the rest of the day in the arcade while waiting for dad for dinner - did play some games but nothing too much..and at around midnight I went for yumcha with Sato, Jimmy and Tracy at some mamak store in Happy Garden (can't remember the name...)

>Saturday<
Usually, Saturdays are @D4's team meetings/outings...this week's lack alot however. Initially, me, IN and Sato were to go to Sunway but parking was impossible (rounded the place for 1/2 an hour) so we head off to IOI instead...IOI was a boring place...and I still don't like those Wangan players...total Osaka whores last time I've been there so this time I don't even bother to accept challengers...because I'm so so so so sick of freakin' Osaka. Geez. There, I only finished by 2nd loop story mode - and my R32 is then 166 games away from S9. Meanwhile IN and Sato used my ID4 card C*-Eve (because they forgot to bring theirs)..and racked up 6 wins to bring my card consecs to 41. Jimmy and Tracy dropped by but left early. I didn't find out why though.

The thing was Sato had to go back home around 7pm (he's heading back to Japan for a week)..so after sending him back...me and IN..had nothing to do..he sent me back and later we were supposed to go out again with Jimmy for another meeting.

...which never happened by the way.

And what wonderful timing it was for Streamyx to FAIL. Lagging connections..and I've read on forums it was nationwide too. Geez TM, buck up your freakin' services...I didn't pay RM99 to surf at dial up speeds.

...Then again, maybe I did.

>Sunday<
Watched the Clannad Ep24 (the Tomoyo-Tomoya OVA)in the afternoon. Will blog more about that later.

I went to MV later in the evening....and I finished the Perfect GT-R arc on my card as well as clearing 7 out of 10 stages on the first Devil Z arc....and from today I decide to just NOT do the 200 ghosts..and finish another story loop (6 games saved)..therefore..I'm 147 games away from S9 on my R32. I also got...something else. But that..remains a secret. Eventually people will find out though. But until then, it's a secret =D.

I came back, and finished all the Generals Challenge for my CnC Zero Hour game...now to uninstall it. That's about it for now...right now, I'm pondering over some things.

That's all for the 3 days - and trust me, the way things are going...the next week is going to be a crucial one.

Fun in Facebook (and other stuff)

Lately I've been doing a lot of stuff at Facebook..to cure boredom -_- (hey, when you're broke you don't have a lot of options do you?). Among them:

Ace Hockey

Playing Air Hockey against the CPU. Going for a clean tourney, but not happening so far (must remember to not hit the puck into own net -.-).

Nations

Making my own nation >_> titled "The Empire of Cyan Starr" =D.

Description (as of blog post) as follows:
The Empire of Cyan Starr is ordered by Emperor Jason Cheong Khai Soon. In this nation, only those who make large donations to the government are allowed the right to vote. Personal computers are given to each citizen and children are taught to type at the age of 12 months. This nation's advancements in health care has subsequently founded the concept of the 'Medical Insurance Company', allowing more people access to medical care, but further segregating those living below the poverty level.

Life in Cyan Starr is very safe due to the right of the police to randomly search private property. This country sports an impressive military force which operates fully on testosterone-driven body builders which are used to intimidate any adversary. Religious practice and public observances are allowed, but no policies may be created to advance any given expression of religious thought. Education in Cyan Starr is of great importance and vouchers are given to any student who cannot afford schooling.

Huge concerns about the environment have prompted this government to research how humans impact nature and then hire a prominent public figure to exaggerate the information to ensure citizen participation. The free market is allowed to decide policy provided the government is in agreement with any decisions made, and any freedom which a citizen understands should be available to them is made available once it is forwarded to all known acquaintances and posted in their front lawn for the public to review.

The use of baby seals as an alternative fuel has been permitted by Jason Cheong Khai Soon and the defenseless animals are being slaughtered by the dozen.

Marijuana has been legalized in Cyan Starr, but the sales tax has insured that only the rich can afford this luxury.

Jason Cheong Khai Soon has instituted National Citizen Appreciation Day and has made every citizen feel just special enough to quit complaining about the poor leadership of the government.

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes, I kill baby seals for an alternative energy source. I'm evil :3

Make A Baby - link here
I made one with my special someone :D
Introducing:

Lili ReiHeart-Crysallis :D Isn't she cute :P Born on 22nd June :p and recently me and Tabitha have been spending a lot of time on her..and well now she's in the "Kindergarten level" :3

Pacman 2.0 - link here.

OLD SCHOOL GAMING! This is when I'm really really bored though, but it's fun when you need to kill time :D

Superpoking.

Although recently I've been poked more :3, I ought to poke people later :S

Giving gifts out.

Giving out gifts is a norm in Facebook. I don't do it alot actually..but sometimes when I'm in the mood (read: free time to click) I'll just give gifts out. Winnie the Pooh is just one of them by the way.

Gamer Social

Being a gamer myself, this app comes in handy to keep track of what I've been playing, what I am playing now, and I can also review games through this handy app. :D

My City.


- Looks like SimCity..but everyday one of my friends (and myself) can add 1 citizen into my town. It's small at the moment (just 33 at time of post), hope to get more soon. :D

And many more,these are just a few of my favs. :D I love Facebook.

And in other news:
WMMT's S class project:
R32 is now 186 games away from S9 (now A3 Ace demo car)[thanks to Lynn for the games..although you didn't really have to help >_<], RX-8 remains unchanged. Hmm....

Purple Fantasy.

What?! Another blog layout so fast?!

Yes. Unfortunately while the last one was very good (I wanted to keep it too - it's Clannad damn it), the problem was the background file..if the layout fails to load properly (It's happened a bit too often to my liking...)...then you ain't seeing anything without highlighting... :( So I'll change to this...at least if photobucket failed or something you can still see the post. I did keep a backup of the last layout though, in case I need it.

For now though, this will do. This layout looks pretty neat....thanks to LLP for showing this to me that day =D

As for changes to the blog, both Imeem and PA ads are removed. - Imeem because nobody uses it and it loads slowly...and PA..well..no use for now. I still have the codes though, so I might re-add it in future.

Oh and the blue Blogger bar is back. :D

Geez.

This blogskin seems to malfunction abit...not sure if it's my connection or what but the background doesn't always show, and this ALWAYS distrupts the blog posts (coz the background is dark).

Might consider changing it....it's not even two weeks I think!

Differences.

Today, I met up with Zackler at Amcorp Mall. It's been a long, LONG time since I've seen him...close to probably a year now. I think the last time I saw him was eight months ago over a chance meeting in Sunway while playing ID4. (I could still remember tuning my 86 Trueno then). Amcorp has truly changed majorly since I was there..sure the ground floor looks pretty much the same..but as I head to the upper floors..the difference was simply too much.

Yes, the cafe is still there. Yes, Uncle Snacks is still there. Yes, the book rental shop is ALSO still there. But man has things changed. The cafe hasnt changed much honestly (I can see the back PCs still using the old stuff). Cheryl's working there now (although just on Thursday apparently)..and that just goes to show I haven't been completely forgotten :3.

Had a walk around Amcorp with Zackler, and talked with him a little over a drink at Uncle Snacks...well thanks mate, I sorta have an idea on what to do next. Hopefully it all just goes well...and if it doesn't, well I just got to keep on moving.

Next up was me going to MV for a bit, where then I by chance met up with a really old friend of mine, Lynn. Okay, maybe I was exaggerating a little but I guess it's been a long time. When I last saw her, she was slightly shorter than me, and now she's the same height :S, and now she's let her hair down completely.

It seemed just like yesterday when we chat about things...somehow it evokes memories of old..she's a whole lot different than before, seriously...before she used to crack jokes at every opportunity but now...she seemed pretty normal, very different. And the way she dresses changed too...it's always been something cute but now its just t-shirt and jeans...but of course, people change over the course of time, so I guess she's just now..different? Well at least she remembers me >_<...considering I don't have a lot of people remembering me :(

But it seems when I asked her the question of how was things with her boyfriend she quickly dodged it...as if she didn't want to talk about it. I was quick to catch on so I quickly changed the topic, but I can very well see she felt very distressed.

Sure enough, as we walked around Metrojaya for a little coz she wanted to have a look around at some things (and I was bored then so..)..it happened. She cried. Not a cry that would attract attention but it certainly got me worried...seeing I never saw her cry before..knowing her as a happy-go-lucky girl - but I guess even THAT changed too.

I'm not going to say what happened between her and her boyfriend (she says it's alright for me to blog about it, but I'd rather not)...but it wasn't a happy story that's for sure. I wasn't very pleased to see how such a happy girl that I know to change to such a pale shadow of herself..all within just 3 years. I told her to go on with life but it seems that she is struggling to get out of the shadow...I wonder what did her boyfriend do to her..seriously...it really hurts as a friend...to see another friend go down like that.

I spent some time with her in the arcade (she's a pretty good Outrun 2 player - and I didn't know she plays Time Crisis 4 too - tagged with her), and she was nice to spend me some games on Wangan Midnight Maxi Tune 3 (didn't want to but she insisted). Then I sent her off to the KTM train home before I made my way back too.

It was a good day in gaming perhaps (25 games to A2 for my R32)..but really, it got me wondering how much she's changed over the years. I guess that one incident really shook her till this day.

That's all for my blog post today.

Hmmm.....

Initially I wanted to post something here but I forgot.

-_- Oh well.

The plan :3

I hereby bring forth my WMMT plan to...S class two of my aces. :D

The first one:
Lili★ - Nissan Skyline GT-R (BNR32) - Rank A3 - Next Generation.

How to get there: 2x story mode (2 rank ups) + 86 ghost wins (1 rank up)
Rank will go in this order: A3 > A2 > A1 > S9
Total games to go as of today: 212.

I'm currently doing this one first as I use this for battle alot. If I feel like it I will also go for another 100 ghost wins for a place in the Level 10 Ghost slot (which then bumps my rank up to S8 :D). As for the title, I hope to change it but I'm not sure to change to what just yet.

The second one:
C★Eve - Mazda RX-8 Type S (SE3P) - Rank A2 - RX-8 King.

How to get there: 2x story mode (2 rank ups)
Rank will go in this order: A2 > A1 > S9
Total games to go as of today: 159.

My pride and joy seeing this is my second car (first was the Evo IX) that I tuned from scratch (and the first to make it through the story undefeated >_>), and stuck to this for some time. :3 But I'll do this one later after I'm done with the R32. As for any more rank ups after S9...that I need to give it a thought seeing I don't do so well in battle with this car (1000 stars - 1 rank up - possible S8 - currently at 651), and if I am willing to do any more story mode/ghost battles - this car is already a Level 10 ghost. As for the title - I'm abit reluctant to change it :p coz it sounds cool :D

Bottom line: Need money first >_>, or this plan won't be completed fast... as for what plans after this two has been done...that's for another day, coz I haven't given it much thought :3

I'm off to sleep -_- hopefully I don't wake up at 2pm AGAIN. -_-

Monday, July 7, 2008

-.-

Woke up at 2pm again. =.=

This is so not good. =.=

Sunday, July 6, 2008

Getting back to business...

Okay this was what happened yesterday. Bullet points with some elaboration :

- Lunch with a special someone.
No comment :)

- Went out with my @D4 teammates (IN, Alpha, Sato) to Sunway Pyramid.
As usual, like every week. Nothing to elaborate upon :3 but this is the first time IN paid for parking (for an hour at least).

- Met up with Kenji (my fellow RV teammate and also leader) as well as -KS- since they were there too.
Before the day itself, Kenji asked me to join them but I had the lunch going on, but anyways it was fun meeting up with these guys.

- Got ★1588 R32 card like everyone else :3
Not exactly "everyone else" but I guess having connections helps. :3

- ID4 Iro DH Wet 2'45"4 RX-8...just for fun.
Just 2 games. Not pushing it. I'm supposed to be done with this game remember?

- Tuned the -R.V- R32 from Level 40 to Level 42 dressup.
Seeing Kenji was away with -KS- for dinner, I went and helped Kenji tune to the first neon. Ghost Battle Mode is boring.

- Metro Highway Tokyo with my own Lili★ R32, testing 760HP/D, with one big hit, ends at 12'12"014.
760HP/D surprisingly feels nice...but needs a lot of work in C1. I'm losing a fair bit of time there..but for a first try I guess it's pretty nice. And if it wasn't for the one hit at the S turn before the Yoko Down/C1 Out split I would have gotten 11.5..ironically the same time on the card. :)

- Dinner at Cilli Padi (met Jimmy and his girlfriend Tracy here) near Happy Gardens - had Chicken Maryland and 2 scoops of Chocolate Ice Cream.
Chicken Maryland was pretty decent..nothing really special for RM18...but the ice cream was fantastic :D

- Received a note that the the -R.V- R32 card is ready..now to fork out money...
This is R32 number.....5 i have. (6 if you count CY+JA which is with Ricky (@GT2))
- Lili★ - Current one, A3 rank, 1283 stars.
- Lili★ - Second one, given to the special someone, B2 rank but I have it for the moment, 443 stars.
- Lili★ - Third one, but first Lili★ made. Currently at 800HP/DG, Stage 44. No stars. :3
- ★1588 - Pros call this the rubbish car (I think it's just the reputation of that team...)but hey this card is so famous so I wanted one (and those connected to the pros all have one too). I don't remember how many stars this had...6000+? But these stars aren't mine anyways.
- -R.V- - Coming soon. :3 Don't remember how many stars (exactly 300?) but this one comes with a red aura - None of my cars have such an aura :3 - they are all either green or purple.

- Played Outrun 2 at MV...
Heart Attack mode owns. Although to be honest, I can only do so well at the Easy splits..the hard ones I can't do well..especially the blue cone request.

- .....and also played Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 3 at MV and had a 4 win streak going on.
- Hohoho, the first three wins I was pretty calm..the fourth one in Osaka..I think I spun out of control..my playstyle that is. I think that was the first time I got fired up on instinct...and I don't know why either!

- Finished Story mode 2nd loop for my Lili★ R32 till Stage 20.

Technically, 226 games more till S9 for my R32..provided I don't battle. Can be done by September..but I'll need a job to confirm that (No money = No WMMT)

- Tagged with Sato for Time Crisis 4
.....and found that all enemies still have double HP even when the partner is dead. :( I died at the last section of Stage 3 Area 1 because the double HP really kills my concentration...I needed to dodge more red sights I wasn't expecting (I usually play Solo because of this reason).

- Had a drink with my @D4 mates at Stevens Corner OUG right after...for about like 10 minutes.
Nothing much to say here...

- Posted my teammate's record.
- Needed to do it before I forget the 4 digit key because I don't have it noted anywhere.

That's all. :)

Reflections of the past.

[Disclaimer: This blog post is 100% on my reflections on my past, and thus will detract from the happy tone I'm used to blogging. However, I would prefer to dwell on my past rather than keep it inside]

As I settle down in front of my laptop, with my cup of tea in hand, I begin to ponder and reflect on my past, and things that should (or should not) have happened. To me, I feel this was an important section of my life..and one that I have really regret over the years.

This was leaving the Comic Fiesta community back in 2004 - end year, barely even a year after i joined the community. We had fun times during the outings, I can still remember them even to this day.

To be honest...it does pain me to leave the community. Yes, there were controversies in the manner which I did leave (I won't elaborate here but those who were closer to me then would know...)...but somehow, I feel very regretful...heck, I actually felt I was very stupid in all this. I just "disappeared" off the radar of all my Comic Fiesta friends just like that. I don't know what they feel towards me now (nothing? hate? anger?) but I know that I really should not have done so. To be honest, this is currently the single most regretful thing I've done...ever.... and if there's a way for me to get back in touch...i will.

I don't know if any CFers I know (or used to know) will read this, but if you do...I really would like to apologize for my mistake...even if you guys won't accept my apology.

I'm closing off for the night...I feel terrible.

EDIT: Somehow I can't sleep anymore.

Oh my....


My oh my, $500,000 and just one step away from being a million dollar winner! :D :D :D, with one lifeline to spare too :D :D :D
Errr.....errr.....err......Honolulu = GMT-10, and NY is GMT -5 but NY observes DST.... omg...still thinking......

I think it's 6am....It can't be 6.30 or 8..... I'm pretty sure its 6am....Final answer? Yes >_<

!!!! One million dollars is mine! :D :D :D :D :D I'm a millionaire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(back to reality...)

.......

:( :( :(

A golden opportunity...gone to waste?

This morning, like...10 minutes ago, a guy from Elken called me - offering me some Product Executive job. Seems like there's always one stumbling block - my lack of a driver's license.

T_T

So unfortunately, they are "reconsidering" (well, they said it was a handicap and they didn't write me off completely)...although my bad feelings tell me: is this bad news for me? :( coz you know what happens when they usually say "we'll call you".

In the meantime, please allow me space as I bash my head upon the walls of this blog seeing I probably threw it away, sigh...

*bash bash bash bash bash bash bash* :(

Bottomline: I need a driver's license (for a host of other reasons too...)

New look :D

Well, there you have it. I figured it was time I changed my layout as I've been using the last one (the Bluebird one) for at least a year now. However, I will be the first to admit that I am no art designer, so I went over to Blogskins to look for a skin, and this was it.

I prioritized Clannad in my search, and it returned me two blogskins (one of which was this). This one looked pretty good, so I decided on this. The skin's name was "Eternally Divine", in which I included it into the blog name (hence "The Crystal Impulse [ver. Eternally Divine]). However, once I downloaded it, problems began to surface, and it wasn't for at least an hour that I realised that this blog skin needs to be used in the classic interface (the new one would just reject all the codes). It sounds simple, but then I'd realise I had to recopy ALL my widgets, from the tagboard, to the clock, and then the links again.

The most difficult part was the IMEEM music player on the sidebar. I had to crop it up to the sidebar's side (170 pixels), but the cropped look doesn't look very nice so I may remove it or replace it with a new song later. Also, I had hesitations on whether I wanted to re-add the Play-Asia ads (as I don't do reviews anymore), but for now I'll just keep it there in case I ever do a game review - I doubt so seeing I rarely touch my DS now.

I have realised the Blogger "bar" on top of the blog doesn't exist. It's part of the skin I guess. Also, the font is nice, but abit small...I might try fixing it up - but I think it looks pretty okay for now.

I've also copied over the links from the previous layout and added a few new ones. I have decided not to link any of my old reviews unlike the previous layout however - I've noticed my Nintendo WiFi Connector review being one reason why people come to my blog - which is nice.

As for WHY a Clannad skin? Well...coz I'm a pretty huge fan of Clannad ever since I've watched the anime last year. I kinda wished it was Kotomi and not Nagisa up there, but hey this is a fantastic skin nonetheless (The other blogskin did feature Kotomi - heck it actually featured all the other Clannad heroines, but I think this one is just fine). Overall, I say this blogskin is fantastic and credits to Jocelyn for making such a wonderful Clannad blogskin :)

Anyways I'm pretty tired from having to copy over and fix up the blog, so I'll sign off now.

Music: None. Yes, silence. Golden isn't it ;)

New layout.

Currently restoring buttons and stuff...be back later.

Changed the layout back to the old one....

For all the pink-ishness in the last Blogger layout, it started to look VERY messy. I reverted it back to the last one. I'll look for another one later but I think I'll remain with this for abit.

EDIT: Yes, the banner (by penman) is missing. I'm looking for it =.=

EDIT2: If I can't find it, i'm going for a new layout. -_-

Alarm clock woes.

I think I seriously need a new alarm clock.

Basically my old (actually lost/stolen/whatever) phone Nokia 6300, i used that as my alarm. If i missed the alarm, the phone would just ring again after like..10 minutes..so I usually woke up slightly later.

But this 5610 Xpress Music -_-

I set my alarm clock to 10am for the past 4 days. For the record I've gone to sleep at 3-4am. Here's the times I woke up:

Day 1 - 12.30
Day 2 - 1.10
Day 3 - 2.40 <--- YES, FOUR HOURS AFTER THE ALARM WTF GG
Day 4 - 12.40

-_- Turns out that this thing STOPS ringing after the first time.....and it's not as loud as the one before. -_- damn it now I have to buy an alarm clock that works, and I'll need it too -_- can't imagine what would happen if I was employed and the above happened >_>

Mission complete. Now I can finally officially quit ID4 TA with a happy end...

Irohazaka DH Dry 2'43"655 RX-8 Type S (SE3P) - my CP times.

Okay fine, so I didn't really hold true to my vow and quit ID4 TA - but now, I can finally do so. When I did that post down below, I was abit unsatisfied, since I didn't really get to achieve what I wanted - or at least something I can be happy about. Nevertheless, I was pretty sure I wasn't going to be serious about ID4 ever again.

Well...at least till today.

I had some major form going on when toying around (just for fun since the MT3 machines were full) with my MR2 (1-1-1-1-0 tuned)...did 2'46"955 Iro DHD with it so I thought hey, why not give it a try again. So I tried my fully tuned RX-8 then. For 8 games I tried I kept getting good CPs with it. While the above time was abit of a disappointment (CP3 was +0.4 off my last personal best of 2'44"1xx) nevertheless it is still a 2'43.

Could I have pushed it? Yes, probably....but no more. I do notice that if I had not messed up the third section (due to the fact I lost 10km/h coming out of the final jump) I would have gotten a 2'43"2xx which would have really been nice, but I don't think I want to push this anymore...seriously, no more....

As far as my ID4 TA times are concerned, this is it...its the end..300+ days since I first touched the machine in Sunway Pyramid. I will never declare that I will stop ID4 for good (like, 100%) because inevitably I will play battles or have some fun games no matter how I try to resist. But as far as seriously time attacking is concerned, "Time Is Up". I neither have the passion, nor the resources to commit myself to this, more towards the former...

What next for me? First priority now is to get a job. Yes, I know it's been overdue for so many months now....but I will be the first to admit its partly due to my laziness. Now though, I should get serious regarding this, because despite being in such a mental state that I'm lazy yet I definitely need a job reality hits hard - I need money, and I need it if I'm going to survive.

Signing out for now, bad Streamyx connection doesn't allow me to surf the net much.. being limited to local sites and MSN sucks.
