Recent Updates #4

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.

I have been as busy as a bee for the past two weeks, and I can barely find the time to breathe on weekdays. It bugs me when people won’t leave me alone. I am an introvert, people. Alone time is crucial for my well-being. I usually find peace in the mornings before the rest of the world is awake, but this week there have been so many events that finish late at night, that I can’t help but go back to bed after Subuh. And I couldn’t drink coffee to keep me buzzed because I’ve been trying to do puasa enam but I kept not waking up for Sahur.

I only started puasa enam the last six days of Syawal (whoops), but ended up only doing puasa lima because of the Merdekaraya event on Friday, which wasn’t even compulsory. It seems like such a dumb reason to not fast now, because the reward is as if you’ve fasted for a year, but it’s my fault for being so last minute. After the event, I was so tired, I slept for four hours straight.

For some reason, this week, people keep asking me if I’ve ever lived overseas. Usually I just mention Japan because I’m too lazy to delve into my complicated history. Even if you asked most of my close friends, they wouldn’t be able to tell you everything accurately.

The truth is, I moved to Japan in October 2005 when I was eight. Spent almost two years there, and I think it was around July 2007 when I stayed in England for six months before going back to Japan for slightly more than a month. Then, in February 2008, I came back to Malaysia. Oh, and in England my classmates kept thinking I was Japanese. Sigh. #ThirdCultureKidProblems

People have been learning to take advantage of me. Imagine someone calling you up, wailing and asking for the correct answers for an online quiz. Well, I may have been nice enough to give some pointers that one time, but NEVER AGAIN. Belajar lah sendiri. Duh. Pretty sure this one senior exploited me too, but I’ll give said senior the benefit of doubt this time. Sorry, lazy people, I don’t exist to help you cheat.

Anyway, last Friday night, my bedroom became a recording studio because my housemates and I were busy producing a Twilight parody of You Belong With Me, for COM167. Our assignment was to change the lyrics of a song and perform it. We could’ve done something less lagha-ish I guess, but like I said, I’ve been extremely busy, so I just fished out an old parody I wrote six years ago, from Jacob Black’s point of view.

You’re in your room with your vampire boyfriend Ed 
He’s going off about something that I said
He doesn’t get my humour like you do

I’m on the beach just staring at the sun
Thinking why can’t you see that I’m the one
Cause he’ll never get your feelings like I do

He drives a volvo, I ride a motor
He just wants your blood but I would swim a flood
Just to see you, hope you’ll take into sight
That this werewolf is better than that parasite

If you could see that I’m the one who understands you
Been here all along so why can’t you see
You belong with me, you belong with me

Walking on the sands with you and your worn out jeans
I can’t help thinking this is how it ought to be
Aren’t you having fun now your leech left you here, he’s in Italy

And you’ve got a smile that can light up rainy Forks
Why don’t we go to my garage and get to work
You say you miss him I know you better than that
I know that inside you’re not actually sad

He can read minds, I hate him reading mine
He just wants your blood but I would swim a flood
Just to see you, hope you’ll take into sight
That this werewolf is better than that parasite

If you could see that I’m the one who understands you
Been here all along so why can’t you see
You belong with me, you belong with me

Sneaking out and waiting by your window
All this time how could you not know honey
You belong with me?

Oh I remember me driving to your house
In the middle of the night
I’m the one who makes you laugh when you know you’re bout to cry
I know you hate songs and you see me in your dreams
Think I know where you belong, think I know its with me

Can’t you see that i’m the one who understands you
Been here all along so why can’t you see?
You belong with me

Sneaking out and waiting by your window
All this time how could you not know honey
You belong with me?

You belong with me
Have you ever thought just maybe, you belong with me?
You belong with me
