Well, it’s been a while – it’s not that there hasn’t been anything to write about, it’s just I haven’t really been in the mood to post anything.
Long weekend ahoy~ Except yes, piano teaching on Saturday plus tuition on Sunday, but I’m kind of used to it and slowly I’m brainwashing myself into enjoying my weekend stints as a long-suffering, extremely sarcastic but generally relaxed teacher. I only hope my students think I’m cool too. (Why yes, I like to seek the approval of my students, because apparently one of them thinks I’m nice even though I’m not pretty, geez I didn’t know teaching piano requires good looks too, amirite.)
Got my Mi Pad a couple of weeks back :D It’s named sylveon, and it’s kind of a ‘matched’ pair with the Kindle, which is named umbreon (so much cooler than just being _boss’ name_). Of course, with any new gadget, it has eaten much of my attention, and can I just mention, how much easier it is to bring my scores with me around, especially when I’m going to piano class and I don’t want to lug a bunch of books around, what with my short attention span.
Plus, other than just being good for reading scores and pdfs, I’ve downloaded a couple of games to tide me over when my internet is shit and I need something to occupy my attention. And because I’m secretly a geriatric, the things I play are Wordsearch and True or False – I like knowing that my cache of random facts are useful for something. For instance, J. Lo is a New Yorker, didja know that? (I didn’t actually, until I got the question wrong.)
Goodies in the mail – Sixteen92’s Spring Collection is here and I love how unique everything smells! My favourites: The Orchard Keeper and The Sound and the Fury. I will probably do actual reviews for them sometime soon.
Savor Soap’s has the fastest turnabout time and shipping timeframe I’ve seen in a while. Everything was nicely shrink wrapped and the ingredients were clearly labelled. The soaps were soft and creamy, and moisturizing enough that I don’t feel bad about skipping body lotion because who has time to slather lotion on their skin daily?! I mean, I only make the effort once in a few weeks because I don’t want to waste my body butters.
Had a 10% coupon code for Escentials so I headed down to Paragon last weekend to sample a bunch of perfumes, even though I already knew that I was going to get Acqua di Parma’s Rosa Nobile. A delicate citrus-y floral, nicely straddling spring and summer.
Also went to catch Marvel’s latest superheroes flick – Avengers: Age of Ultron. It was fun flick, because c’mon, it’s written by Joss Whedon, who gets a free pass in my book. But while it was enjoyable, I wouldn’t necessarily say that I really liked it a whole bunch, because it feels like the storyline is too cliched, and seriously, I don’t think I quite like the character development explored in this film. (Why must there be a romance subplot, why can’t everyone be like in The Strawhats where it’s all platonic friendships only? Leave the romance to fanworks, alright?)
