Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Aye... the last few days have been quite interesting in school. Let's see, on Tuesday we had culture and society of Malaysia. Our lecturer is Marion D'Cruz, and my first impression wasn't that brilliant when she introduced herself to the class, I thought she was quite crass and vulgar. In the first five minutes of talking, she had said f*ck twice and bitch twice. Geez! She then said she was three times as old us as, so if we treated her bad, she'd give us three times the sh*t, and if we were good, she'd be three times as good. She also says she loves to torture students and is quite evil.
What a lecturer. Well, as she talked more, my impression got better. She's got a very witty and sarcastic sense of humour, and she teaches 4 schools. She's also opened up her own art studio and her list of achievements is mind-blogging. I mean mind-boggling. Rumour has it she's a datin!
We were introduced to the subject details later on. She's strict though, 'cause if we were to typo any important well known name (like, say Jesus Christ, or Yasser Arafat) she'd give us zero straight. Later on a group of the class sat in a circle, and introduced ourselves. I remember Neal, Hui Min, Esther, Pauline... gee.. is that all I remember? Our homework, discuss next week the thing we hate most about Malaysia. I think I like the subject already =D.
Today we had our first drama class. Quite fun, and very humourous, although I'm not used to acting. I acted in The Tempest once-a Shakespeare play when I was in grade 5, and I did a video assignment back in ITE. Those are the most impressive already =/. Today was basic though, and we had to do short skits. My group's was quite simple: I snatched a bag from a girl who was with her friend... a stranger knocks me down and takes the bag from me, then runs away himself! LOL. Other groups did various ones, and they all involved relationships, heh. Cute.
Had figure studies after that. We needed to do a live sketch in class, except with all the details this time, unlike last semester. I did alright, although I didn't do much of the background. I slacked in the arcade, and played Time Crisis 3, hoping to complete the game with two credits like last time. I died at the final boss, with those laser/electric tanks. Pfft!
Today was the first time I took public transport back home too. Zhan Yang drove me on Monday, and since I needed to help move out one more table from our old place, my mom came and I drove back. Today though, I took the bus at rush hour, and slept a hell long time in the bus as a result. Oh, by the way, Singaporeans, if you think Singaporeans are inconsiderate when it comes to public transport, you haven't met Malaysians yet. Trust me on that.
Oh yeah, I think most of you can see I changed my blogskin. This is a Silent Hill based one, with pictures from the movie and Silent Hill Origins game. I was just bored of my old Christian based one, so I made this horror skin in about an hour. Ended up better than I expected. I love darkness, everyone knows that, so this skin shouldn't be a surprise. The song is the introduction song of Origins by Elizabeth Mary Glynn, and her voice is fantastic! I've heard her voice a few times and it's very beautiful and sultry. This song is very dreamy and soothing too. Everytime I hear this song I feel very relaxed, and has made me sleep when I'm just resting for 5 minutes. It's that good.
