Blogging for my desmise

HBO is promoting the movie Superman Returns and as the lady on the telly said earlier it will be showing only showing until the 21st.

So, I watched my... first (?) Superman movie at one today, and what did I think about it? Well, it was cool and all that. Superman comes back and finds that he has a kid. Ooh... Superman and son. I think I like that better than Superman and cousin, Supergirl. Yeah, Justice League Unlimited crap.

But the only thing I'd really like to comment on right now is the immense silliness of the idea of Superman.

You have Clark Kent here. Some reporter friend of his clicks away on his camera, pointed at him. But, tadaa, no recognition. Brilliant. Even Lois Lane and her fiancee were talking about Superman, his vital stats and such, then the fiancee, Richard, suddenly notices that is the same height as Superman. Then they just shrug it off and go, "Nah..."

Hah. Really, creator of Superman, whoever you are. That was so silly. As so many other superhero flicks and comics, just put on a mask, concealing your eyes and you become unrecognizable. Or in Superman's case, just remove his glasses and he becomes his super-powered alter ego. And he slips it on, the people go and wonder, where'd Superman go?!

Yeah, if that's so in the real world, I could just take off my glasses and rob a bank, and no one would know that it was me... Ah... fantasy.

AVG: Are you to be my laptop's savoir?

Gosh, I hope so. For some time now, my laptop (not the one I'm using to go on the Internet and such) has been infected by a virus. Actually, I'm led to believe an entire folder of viruses. Sucks, doesn't it? I do have Sophos installed, but it's ancient and can't be updated since my laptop's ability to go on the net has been, well, broken. Somehow. A long time ago. *sigh*

So, I've actually already downloaded AVG for my mom's computer, so I know it will be able to get rid of those annoying little worms. The most surprising thing of all is that the Sophos on my mom's laptop went poof!

A month ago, probably, I wanted to scan this computer, since it was getting all laggy again. When I clicked on the Sophos shortcut on my desktop, a window saying that it couldn't find the location of the program came up. Obvious reaction: wth?! So I went through the Program Files folder and found the Sophos folder empty. Shucks... What the hell happened here?

So, I tried to get Sophos back. Nope, couldn't do it, since, well, I'm penniless. (Mom doesn't know about this, btw.) So, I tried looking for other Anti-Virus programs that were free and found AVG. Whee~ And the next time I went to one of the school's computer labs, I found out that our school also uses AVG. At the very least, I know that it has my teacher's seal of approval. :P

Well, back to the present. I'm downloading it (at a pathetic rate, btw - 7 kb/sec) and waiting... waiting... and waiting.

Mythbusters... They're so cool. I was watching the show just before this, so the big rig myths are still fresh in my mind. Yep, I was watching Mythbusters instead of studying for my exams. Not that I study too much for it.

Of course, Chinese is the exception. Since no one can pass Chinese without studying, those who can't understand Chinese have to be a bit more dedicated. Yeah, that's me. Oh yeah, that reminds me. A few posts ago, I predicted that I'd pass my Chinese long test... Sad thing. I'll never try that again. It became the first one I failed this quarter.

Why I don't post much

Yeah, you've noticed the gradual decrease in the production of my posts. So what? What does it really matter? It doesn't or does it?

When I'm bored, that's when I post. That is, when I'm bored and inspired. Usually, I am bored, but unfortunately uninspired. Do I have no love life? No, I don't. It is nonexistent. The most love I express is to Snoopy, but it's just Snoopy, no reciprocation possible. Actually, I wonder whether that's why most of my love is directed at him, because it won't come back to me. Now, that's the most screwed thing I've ever written. Hands down.

Anyway. Let me just keep this thing up to date.

My semi-new blog:

My current tuning:

We just had a Chinese long test earlier today, and I'd have to say that I think I actually passed. Not to say that I've failed any of my long tests, thanks to the strange way of grading our Chinese teachers follow. But, I strongly believe that I actually passed this thing. Why? Because I actually studied the day before. And I usually don't bother, not counting the brief glances at my notes just to make me feel better about it.

Gosh... So uninspired. So lazy.

Chapel Notes

I don't know why you're asking for this, but fine... Whatever.



  • Philippians 4:8-9

"What you feed your mind with is what comes out of your mouth and what your actions will be"

  • Proverbs 17:20


"You reap what you sow."



  • 1 Samuel 15


Disobedience - you should obey the Lord's Word and not manipulate it
- if you don't obey a person, that person won't feel respected
"To obey is better than sacrifice."



  • Philippians 4:6-7
  • John 14:27


The Bible presents a different perspective on life.
Peace of God - eternal calm; lies in the trusting soul; unaffected by external disturbances
- center of the hard way
Jesus - author of perfect peace
Eirene - Greek word

Assurance that God will win in the end
Attainable even during turbulence



  • 1 Samuel 16 & 17


Excellence is a habit, not an act. - Aristotle (paraphrased)
David - picture of excellence

  1. We must learn how to honor our parents and we will live a long life.
  2. We should be able to be willing to do menial tasks
  3. Be responsible.

People will misunderstand you.
