Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA

I Did It!

I passed my Basic Theory Test!

Got the letter in the mail today. ^____^

Along with a second postcard from Sparrow, who is in the UK at the moment. *envies* That postcard took three days to reach me. Which is amazing, considering that Singapore Post takes 10 days, even if the material is for time-sensitive University Applications. *makes face*

Sparrow says that the UK is full of ironies. "Piccadilly Circus is not a circus, but a fountain. Covent Garden is not a garden. The bus-stops here are built backwards." Supposedly for to prevent water being splashed on unwary bus-waiters.

Feeling generally exhausted in the past two days. Mom thinks it's because I haven't been getting enough sleep. *Cue James Marsters' "Let Me Rest In Peace"*

Went out to the Marina Square/Suntec City area with Mom and bro today. Main motive was getting Dad's Father's Day present. I hereby nominate fathers the most difficult people to get presents for, next to teenage boys. It is so much easier to get presents for girls. I got Dad was presents in three different shades of blue. Light, Dark and Transparent.

Bro says Todd Lockwood's first art compiliation book will be out soon. "Transitions".

Am quite amazed by bro. He can kill off Tomb Creeper (Lut Gholein boss)at Level 76 while carrying on an involved conversation on D2 - Which characters have it easy starting off, which class gets easier the higher you go, and about how we both hate Lighting Enchanted-anything.

Goodbye, Gregory Peck. My mom and I watched "To Kill A Mockingbird" - and both agreed that at that age, he possessed a maturity that distinguished him. And, for my mom, Mockingbird's most memorable line was Scout's "I'm a ham."

Off-tangent on reading material: My grandfather was always a step ahead of us in reading. When I was in Primary Two, he wanted me to read "To Kill A Mockingbird". Now my cousin (Legolas Fancier) is Primary Five, he wants her to read Jeffery Archer's short stories - "Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less".
