So I'm strolling down the street with my Glock 18,
Hidden in my pocket with a full magazine,
Bullets made of brass,
I'll bust a cap in your ass!
Fill the air with lead,
Gonna make you real dead!

Out pops a ganger and I pop him good,
That's how I roll in my neighbourhood,
But his homie sees it and does a runner,
Bringing the boys, nothing could be funner,
Shots ring out as they're drawing near,
And I duck away 'cause my life is dear.

Hiding behind a wall as the rifles rattle,
Worf would be proud of this glorious battle,
One feels lucky and marathons around the corner,
And I think to myself that I'm a goner,
Shoves his gun in my face, fires, fails, made in China,
And I smile 'cause right now nothing could be finer.

Suddenly sirens ringing, choppers and SWAT,
And now my barrel's smoking and hot,
So I take a moment, a breath, a prayer,
Convince myself that it's just a childhood dare,
Reload, refresh, step out into the battle royale,
Time to join the Heavenly chorale.

It's a three-way fight,
Bullets coming thick and tight,
Simply move and shoot, duck and weave,
Try to ignore the bullet holes in my sleeve,
And then a round hits my chest,
So now it's time for me to rest...

Rap? Not really. I mean, it's rap-themed with the ghetto-ness and all that, and it rhymes, but there's no attempt at rhythm, and I'm Asian. I think it's more just...contemporary poetry. After all, wasn't Shakespeare merely the biggest rap artist of the 17th century? I think rap is a kind of poetry. It's got a message, a meaning, a rhythm and a rhyme.

In other news, my 6th week of Semester 2 just finished. 7 weeks to go, plus a week of midsemester break, then it'll be swotvac and exams. Seems to fast...but I can't believe we have 10 weeks straight before we get our midsem break. Makes no sense. 10 weeks on, 1 week off, 3 weeks on, 1 week off, exams? Blah.

Good day

As the title suggests, today was a pretty good day. Classes weren't too complicated, managed to wing through the History tutorial without having done the readings, saw plenty of people, didn't play any games at Uni at all. Then got home, cleaned laptop fan so now it doesn't overheat :D:D:D and then...chilled out!

Tomorrow's going to be shit, though. INT1020 500 word editorial due, which I haven't done. Why do we need 6+ sources, if it's meant to be opinionated and persuasive anyway?

I can't believe how quiet my laptop is right now. And it's been on for HOURS continuously! Let's walk through how I cleaned it...

First, I got a screwdriver. Took out the screws at the bottom rear of the laptop, removed the plastic cover. Momentarily bewildered by all the circuits and whatnot. Located fan, removed more screws, removed fan, proceeded to wipe grey muck off every surface. Layers of the stuff :( Cleaned, put it back together, voila! Life's awesome. I'm awesome. It's good.

I like mandarins.

I hate it when you eat a mandarin and then bite one of the seeds and it goes all retarded flavour. Mm, mental deficiencies. nomnomnom.

I just had another chocolate chip muffin.

I'm fat.

edit: Alien Swarm now has a Brutal mode. And Onslaught option, which means endless spawning. And hardcore friendly fire option too. Heh. 1014 friendly fire in a single round with three other people is my best, so far xD

edit edit: I hate Melbourne weather

edit edit edit: Stupid INT1020 assignment.

Apparently, from a guy called "Nuwayhid". But yeah, pretty true right?


So I'm all alone waiting for someone to appear,
People I know, friends that are dear,
With nothing to do but wallow in fear,
But I think about you and I feel that we're near.

Anyway, enough of depressing poetry. Election was today. Voted. Australian Sex Party for Senate, ALP for House of Reps.
Came home and watched the coverage. Pretty disappointed that Labor didn't win, wondering about how the Senate seats are allocated, and nearly beside myself with rage that the Greens won Melbourne. Little shits.

Note to self: Make Brownshirts, attack Greens, win elections, become Chancellor, invade Poland.

Good weekend

Love it. xD

Weekend was pretty good, all things considered. Caught up with some people, downloaded Photoshop and FL Studio. Going to delve into my artistic side :D

I think...that I might be falling for a girl. Woman. Young lady. But it's exceedingly complex and I don't want to think about it right now, especially with all the work that's flying around. Already a third through the semester, can you believe it?

Bio essay draft due in 22 and a bit hours. Haven't started. 1000 words to go.

And such is life...

Hey uptown girl, can you hear this downtown song? - Anberlin, "Uptown Song"

Well, Jonh's been telling me to update my blog. And now's a good a time as any, I guess...

My paternal grandmother died this morning. A stroke, from what I've been told. Her second one in a couple of months. I was over in China just a month ago, and she looked absolutely fine. Just goes to reinforce just how fragile life really is. She may not have gotten along all the best with my mother, but deep down, she really did care. Rest in peace, 奶奶.

And so now it comes to what happens after she's gone. The cremation is in two days. My father, as the eldest son, will be leading the funeral rites. As the eldest grandson, I should be there. It is my filial duty. But there's not a chance in Hell I can make it. I feel obligated to do...something.

I worry about my grandfather. He's always been a lot more sickly than my grandmother, and in many respects she looked after him, perhaps to at her own cost. And now he'll be all alone in that tiny apartment. If something does will anyone know? But all my relatives over there are too busy to be able to look after him all day. And the concept of a retirement home doesn't exist in China. I don't know. I hope he's alright.

Like raindrops falling through the air, life trickles away. How will you spend yours?

I've just spent 30 minutes looking for that book which had my paternal family tree. Can't find it. Realised how little I actually knew about my grandmother. Don't know her given name. Don't know her birthdate. Don't know anything. And now that she's gone, I regret not trying to get to know her better. She was family, and family is everything, after all.
