First off, it was AMAZING. Really unexpected tbh. I'm basically just going to list some things I loved seeing and some things I wish the included.

man, damn fbchat and gchat, sidetracking me from my goal to get down all the details.

- when it started, I was actually scared they'll cut out malfoy manor but they didn't. and actually, it started off well I guess. gave everyone a sense of what was happening in the world- Muggle/Wizarding.
- Malfoy Manor was pretty good too, didn't have the white/albino peacock but I'll deal. Snape walking through that wrought-iron gate. and yay, they kept Charity Burbage
- I was SO pleased to see the Dursleys! We haven't seem them for quite some time now, I think since PoA maybe? again, I would've loved to see that exchange between Dudley and Harry, where Dudders says " I don't think you're a waste of space" but I completely understand cutting it out.
- Hermione performing the Obliviate charm on her parents was so sad, great effect with wiping her out of family photos and nice-touch using her actual baby photos. and how she walks out of her house with such determination. on that note, pity we didn't see Ron's ghoul.
- I think they should've had the whole, Death-Eaters knew the real Harry because he used Expelliarmus thing. I did however like how Remus asked Harry/ Kingsley the questions to test if they're imposters
- I imagined Mundungus differently
- The Wedding was beautiful! loved the bit with the all the Weasley boys putting the tent up
- oh 7 Potters was awesome, glad they showed Hedwig dying (it was sadder than in the book)
- yay for Elphias Doge being included
- lots of direct quotes from the book which I obviously adore <3
- George's saintly joke was in!
- George watching Harry/Ginny kiss, lol
- serious under-use (is that a word?) of Polyjuice potion
- Luna in her yellow dress! Xenophilius was good.
- No Krum though :( but yay for Freddie Stroma and Neville on the train, you tell 'em Neville.
- hmmm, this could take a while,I'll probably get tired soon enough. ohh, I wish they showed Harry's birthday dinner
- Bill Nighy as Scrimgeour= good! and Albus's will
- Tonk's hair wasn't pink :( and they skipped the confrontation between Harry and Remus at Grimmauld Place
- Dusty!
- They showed Sirius's room, granted they skipped Lily's letter but it was there.
- Kreacher and Dobby were adorable.
- No Percy sighting at the Ministry, I hope they have him in Part 2. I felt it was pretty major for the Weasley clan
- hmm, Ministry bits were well done I guess. Reg looked well flustered. I just wish Harry took Moody's eye, specially since they bothered to include it.
- the splinching scene was sad, Hermione looked so distraught.
- I reaaally liked all the camping- on the road bits. when the snatchers could smell Hermione, Ron's expression when he sees H/H together, their journey through different scenery, how they showed how Ron was SUCH an annoying little jerk etc
- oh, Hermy's bag wasn't beaded but I liked it. and I liked how she tied her scarf on the tree trunk when Ron left and then the hot snatcher had it.
- radio! and Harry trying to cheer Hermy up by his cutesy-clumsy dancing, awwww <3 the funny bits were really well done, tasteful and did lighten the mood.
- destroying the locket, the evil-pretty Harry and Hermione. passionate kissing. soo good. oh and I don't remember if it was in the books, the adding spiders was brilliant!
- Godric's Hollow! again, no polyjuice but it was so emotional. they skipped the obelisk/ statue of James, Lily and Harry. but I almost thought they'd skip Harry house! was waiting for him to touch the gate, didn't happen. but OMG Bathilda Bagshot was terrifying! I expected Rita's book to be hardbound tbh. Gellert is attractive. no Voldemort flying from Europe to kill H/H or look at them through the window. but Harry wand did break!
- and loved Harry telling Ron to "keep talking about that ball of light going to your heart" :)
- Xenophilius's was cool, wasn't on a hill though. but the ANIMATION WAS AMAZING. The Invisibility Cloak looked beautiful and I loved how the Elder Wand had those knots Dumbledore's wand had. I don't know if many people picked up on that...haha and Ron's interruption, "Midnight, our mother always told us".
-I was hoping to see Luna's painting of Friends Forever.
- I almost thought Hermione wasn't going to disfigure Harry but she did!
- I could've done with a bit more torturing, as horrifying as the Mudblood on the arm was...but Bella/ HBC! oh and I really wish they did show Wormtail falter to kill Harry then the silver hand killing himself.
- DOBBY <3 that was sooo sooo sad. I love Dobby.
- It was nice that Harry buried him properly, but it was meant to be in the garden. or I imagined a lush, green garden, with seashells and where is is stone? with "Here lies Dobby, a free elf"?  and I haven't even read/audiobooked DH for a while now.
- and then it ended pretty quickly. expected Dumbledore's grave to be prettier but whatever. and for some reason, didn't expect it to end just there...

really though, as critical as I was, THAT WAS SO GOOD! I want to see it again (and again and again).  I would've been perfectly happy to sit through a 5 hour long movie.

and some of the expressions on the actors' faces were just gold. GOLD I tell you.

Oh and they had these AMAZING Harry Potter figures at Burwood, in the claw game, but none of us have any skills :'(

I'm trying to find a picture to add to this but cbb. so yeah.

am so not in the mood to study.

I'll tell you what I did yesterday (after my exam):

came home, ate Doritos, watched watched Scott Pilgrim, watched HIMYM, watched Gossip Girl, watched lots of episodes of 8 Simple Rules.

I think that's it. and you know why? because I suck. and also read this article and found it funny: http://www.avclub.com/articles/5-trends-i-just-made-up-looking-around-the-office,9629/

and then I read some of the comments too. because they're also funny.

I have a prac exam on Friday. I have not started studying yet. There are 27 pracs to get through.

12 October 2010 @ 09:45 pm
because the weather's been so lovely recently, I got my dad to take out our bikes and went cycling to the park with my sister yesterday. It was really nice and I love the feeling on wind on my face as you go downhill, also, it felt good to be doing something mildly requiring some physical exertion.

sadly, the bike is way to small and the saddle is incredibly uncomfortable so my ass hurts.

If I was a rich girl (nannanananananaaaa), I buy this gorgeous bike from: http://www.papillionaire.com.au/buy.php

yay! Yellowshirts 2011 :)

the competition was intense this year. 728 applicants, 300 something got interviews and then 150 Yellowshirts selected.

I feel like I could dance thinking about next year/ O-Week/Yellowshirt Camp. squeeeee

Now just need to make sure I do well this course and kick AEB's butt. It's possible, so let's get crackin' aye.
22 September 2010 @ 11:09 pm
Health Maintenance really doesn't like me. sigh.

I hate getting P-

There goes my hope of Exempting this course :(
07 September 2010 @ 10:48 pm
I know I say this EVERYTIME, but next course will be different. I will study regularly and keep up with lectures and read the relevant textbooks chapters. I will not leave my study to the last minute/day.

God. I just hope to pass tomorrow. I mean,  I feel like I know enough to pass but I still need to summarise ALLL these drug classes and read QMP notes AND go through tutes/sgs notes AND go through past papers AND read over notes for stuff I don't remember.


Next course- AEB, WILL be different. I promise.

Oh also, limit Facebook use earlier in the course would help too.

okay, cram time.
04 September 2010 @ 06:23 pm

despite straightening it in the morning, THIS is what my hair looks like.

UNSW Open Day was great fun though, waking up at 6.50am, having to cram study for my exam on the 8th- WORTH IT!

I will be so SOOO gutted if I don't get into Yellowshirts this year- 728 people (or something equally ridiculous) applied this year. fingers crossed.
28 August 2010 @ 11:46 am
So I intended to take a nap yesterday at around 8pm, didn't wake up till this morning. Oh yeah. I'm so awesome.

anyhow, I'm confident I dreamt that I smoked some strange looking cigarettes, which I think contained weed. hmmm. to top THAT off, I think I got them from my dad.

to provide a (sortof) context to these:

- my dad used to smoke, normal cigarettes though. as far as I know. but doesn't now
- I don't smoke, and have never smoked anything but would not be opposed to trying.
- we're learning about drugs at uni. drug dependency, drugs on the dancefloor, MDMA, discussed Marijuana etc.

so, yeah.

but still, god it was a strange dream.

Now I need to go finish off my bits for the Group Project because I suck atm.

While puling YET another all-nighter Sunday/Monday to finish my assignment which I had about 4 weeks to do, I observed that one/I pee a heck of a lot more than I normally would. and usually, I'm high after an all-nighter but this time, I felt a little tired-drunk/tipsy (based on my being tipsy ONCE and it wasn't tired-tipsy).  Also, previously noted, feet get COLD.

I was procrastinating at 4am, claiming they were "study breaks" and have gotten OBSESSED with the AV Club. I've been reading Buffy reviews/recaps and they are so FRICKING ADDICTIVE.

girlsinkhearts, when you read this, WATCH BUFFY, a sci-fi loving lady like you will enjoy Buffy. I mean I enjoyed it, so you surely will.

I also watched the Extras for Season 2 of Scrubs.

I am THAT shit.

Hmmm, some things about summer. As much as I like summer and what it represents blah blah, I am NOT looking forward to the lizards, the cockroaches, the ants, the mosquitoes, the incessant SWEATING and feeling like you'll die from the HEAT.

I do like it though. I like all seasons really, Spring is awesome. I love how everything is already starting to bud/bloom. It's refreshing.

To balance out the MANY whingy posts, this one is about how I love my friends. and making new friends.

really, imagine life without friends. or let's not because that is sad.

11 April 2010 @ 11:58 pm
woooo! no all-nighter required to finish off my assignment. I mean sure, I still need to read over it and maybe fix the 'Managing the Interview' section but word count done, in-text done, reference list looks fine and yay!

Just have to wake up early to submit it.

I haven't been feeling stressed at all, which worries me. WHY THE HELL don't I stress anymore?

The assignment was Communications- had to interview a person the analyse the interview.

Buffy time :)
16 March 2010 @ 05:18 pm
I'm an idiot, an imbecile and very very stupid. I went to interview a person for my Communications assignment and we're supposed to hand in a recording and a transcript and I thought the thing was recording because I'd pressed it and a blue light was flashing but ohhh nooo, turned out it didn't record and yeah.


waste of a day.
10 March 2010 @ 11:56 pm
Today has just been such a wonderful day and for no particular reason at all. In addition to the loveliness of the day, I keep thinking, "I LOVE my friends" and such forth <3

the one with the deer is definitely better. animals are my forte?
20 February 2010 @ 03:51 pm
I baked 60 muffins/cupcakes for my sister's birthday (for her to take to school- and my parents complain about me!)

Here are a few :)
20 February 2010 @ 03:48 pm
and it was delicious, if I say so myself. Once again, my parents were all "you should reconsider doing Medicine. You're creative so you should do something interesting" and gave Poh's (from Masterchef) example.

But yeah, despite being very tired when I started, it was fun and I was very pleased with how they turned out.

Vegetable Biryani

We were all done and had put away the leftovers when I figured I should take a picture.

Eyebrows make SUCH a big difference in a person's appearance.

I made some cupcakes the other day, just for the heck of it :) they're delicious and sortof healthy.

Due to lack of a proper camera, Photobooth pictures must suffice!
