The blog's under construction now.
Things might look really ugly, so ugly that you'll want to ball your eyes out.
So read at your own risk.

Hey there, thanks for visiting. The construction work for the blog has just finished except for one thing and that's the lounge section, as always. (For some reason, it's always incomplete)
For old viewers, here are what I've did to my blog, in case you didn't notice:
- removed Archive page cause it's high maintenance
- changed the gallery to an Instagram feed
- installed FontAwesome
- created a Music Player for the lounge, no longer do you need to look at millions of play buttons, just click and play
- newly written About page
- header image can now be changed but only for Home and inside of posts, toggle it away with the up arrow if you need to
- added different header images for all other pages
Have fun reading about me whining. ;)

The thing is...

Spending time mopping around doing nothing does suck at times. Although have a shipload of ideas but none of 'em can be fulfilled. After the PMR, the school's been putting up a heap of activities for the Form 3 students as they were worried that we will get too bored and starts to skip school. However, the effect was quite ironic. More and more students choose to skip school, sit back comfortably in their chairs with their air-conditioners opened in the room, sitting in front of their computers and doing nothing but staring blanky at it.

As for me, I'm the kid who's always present at school. I have to go to school during schooling days cause my day would be like losing a screw or something if I don't. It would be so goddamn boring for not going to school and hang out with my friends. I prefer sitting in the classroom playing chess, and perhaps Scrabble, with 'em, even though it's kinda hot and humid at times. It's pretty cool and fun to dish out your tactics and knowledge in those mind games. Sharpening your thinking skill along with knowing your friends better and interacting with them.

The thing is, the school shouldn't planning too much activities for the students. It would feel like being in a camp which has a over tight discipline and to less freedom. Having little competitions like Scrabbling and workshops for future roads are okay but cutting alphabets from the newspaper to answer questions? I don't think anyone would like that. It's so wasteful and non-environmental friendly. For example, the Maths quiz that was organised yesterday.

Now let's not write too much about school life after PMR. I might get reported as someone that doesn't know how to appreciate what others do. Well that's the sentence that you always get when you comment or criticize at something that your senior or teachers do. From my perspective, it's an excuse of no excuse. It's not that I don't like them having these activities to fill our time. It's just that we, us students, also have our own way to fill it too. I understand that some students have used their time wrongly doing unnecessary things like playing with poker or gambling with other stuff. But sometimes, planning too much stuff into one schedule will just eventually overload it and reach the opposite effect. :)

Let's just skip the after PMR part. I just figured out something after a month finishing the book "And Another Thing..." by Eoin Colfer. It's actually the Part 6 of 3 of the book "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" originally by Douglas Adams (Poor guy. Died before he could write his sixth book at 2001). He referred that 42 is the answer to life, the universe and everything else. I finally got a solution to his suggestion. 24 is the number of hours per day. And here's the important part. Everyone, and I mean every human and living things that have the ability to think (that is what is outside Earth... aliens?) have always wanted to reverse time itself. Therefore, reversing 24 makes it 42! That's quite ingenious. I had written this on Facebook so just comment there if you have anything that you want to say about it.

That's all for today. I'll write more and perhaps I might write a little tutorial for Bloggers. That would be for the CSS part. You won't need to have to edit the HTML part, just the CSS of it. Cheers~
