PAINTBALL


ok, keeping up with my usual habit of only reporting an event after everyone's forgotten about it, here is my PAINTBALL update.

A bunch of us (Me, Azam, Joe, Shane, Izwan, and Lars the Norwegian viking terminator), went for a paintball session last Saturday. We'd been planning it for a while, and finally managed to leave it till the last weekend before term started.

Reached the place, all hyped up and ready to go, got our combat gear, got our paintballs, and sat through the briefing, just itching to go in and spray someone.

Poser pic

We were there for about 3 hours, in which time we had about 4 games, in jungle terrain, a pretty nice fort and junkyard area, and a capture the flag game on two banks of a creek connected by a bridge. Of course, it wasn't just us playing, we joined up with lots of other groups so the games resembled miniature wars. it was about 30-40 odd people on each side. In other words, the probability and frequency of you getting hit was suddenly a lot higher.

We were divided up into our teams: Yellow and Orange (whose stupid idea was it to make the team colours yellow and orange anyway, seeing as they both look almost the same. Not to mention the visors were orangish tinted, making it even harder to tell friend from foe..... not like it mattered, truthfully... i just sprayed anyway XP).

The memory of the whole thing was a little fuzzy actually, what with all the little colourful pellets of death flying everywhere, sweat dripping into your eyes, hands and knees raw from scrambling about everywhere in the dirt. It was exhilarating... =) The first game was a simple sabotage mission. One team defending a bunker, another team attacking from across a junkyard-like field. The objective was for the attacking team to reach the bunker without getting shot, and pull the cord on the 'bomb' already planted there. Easier said than done. As soon as we left the cover of our shed on assault, the sudden realisation of what was about to happen to you was imminent. You could barely see where the enemy was. You could barely make out shifting objects in camouflage moving from tree to tree to barricade, all taking potshots in your general direction.

And suddenly.. you were very content to stay behind cover and return fire. Let others do the dirty work lol. But after a while, it's impossible to go through the game without getting hit at least once, and after that happened, you think 'ah what the hell... CHAAAARRGGEEEE!!!!11'

We won that mission eventually, someone managed to make it up to the bunker and pull the cord. And then it was our team's turn to defend. Not quite as difficult as assaulting, as all you had to do was stay put behind some reasonable cover and try to gun down anybody getting near the bunker. Managed to hit a few invaders, and was feeling pretty good, so i decided to move up a little. I leapt out from behind my cover, trying to move forward to another barricade, and a lucky fluke shot hit me in my groin. jesus christ, that hurt. i scrambled back up to the respawn point and lay there sobbing for a while. Why oh why didn't i buy a cup guard? T__T

The next game was another sabotage mission, where one team had to defend a fort at the top of a small hill, and the opposing team had to roll this blue oil drum (the bomb), up the hill, set it against the wall of the fort, and pull the cord. We started off on defense, doing pretty much the same thing as before, staying behind cover, trying to gun down advancing forces. Eventually, our front line of defense was whittled down to a few of us, behind small tyre barricades in front of the fort. And that was when we started to piss ourselves, as we looked down the hill, and saw the entire enemy force, 30-strong, slowly advancing to our position. And i was running out of paintballs. We frantically tried to hold them off, until... of all the things that could have happened, my paintball container fell off my gun. Right then, i snapped. I grabbed my gun, my container, and ran like hell to the back of the fort, where i frantically tried to reattach the stupid holder. Managed to make it to a high defense point inside the fort, where i was shot in the head moments later. How anti-climatic -__-;

More running around later, legs are starting to numb up, hands getting tired, vision getting blurry, we finished up and sat around, exhausted, dirty, hungry.. but happy. Our team had won the final set of games. Compared our bruises, caught a cab back to the city, made our way home. The next day my thighs were so numb i could barely walk.

It's now Monday, and i figured i'd better update about the paintball session before i left tomorrow for Sydney. I'm going snowboarding! w00t! I'll update when i get back 2 weeks later. |m/.

Dreamworld

Ok, boys and girls.

It's a Sunday.
It's late.
I'm bored out of my skull.
I have nothing else better to do.

And it's only that very unique and specific combination of events, that will cause me... to blog. I space out, therefore i blog. Anyway, somewhere in the middle of the previous week, I went to dreamworld with Azam, Joe, Shane, and azam's sister, who is a whiny hyperactive tart who does not know the meaning of 'CIGARETTE BREAK.'

I woke up early. Very early. Too early. It was cold. I was rather upset about that. Met up with the guys at the pickup zone, where the coach that would deliver us to Dreamworld, was late. Anyway, cutting snippets of story aside due to the fact that i don't like typing out lengthy recounts, we arrived at Dreamworld.

It wasn't open yet. But there were still very long lines. People are very enthusiastic in this country. Ok, gonna fastforward a little, skip the walking around, skip some more stuff, ah ok. Went on some pretty funky rides, like the Wipeout (much larger version of Times Square's revolvotron), Tower of Terror (hyperspeed acceleration to backward drop), Giant Drop (like the solero space shot except this time i actually pissed my pants), and the Vortex (round room. spins very fast. then it spins faster. centrifugal force pushes you against the walls and simulates artificial gravity).

Took some weird pics along the way. Like this one of me being eaten by a crocodile.

Bad croc >(

And some pics of a grossly over-exagerrated river rapids ride, where most of it was spent screaming about the deadly water splashing on us.

Joe + Shane
Me
Azam
OMG the water NOOOOOO

Ok we've got some frolicking around the jumping-water fountains here.
We've got me expertly dodging a spray of water from one of the fountains here.

And finally, we've got a poser pic of the guilty party just before leaving Dreamworld.
Tired but happy.

I can't be too bothered to describe what happened after that. Suffice to say we all got back safe and sound...







... and lived happily ever after.

The End

IQ Test(s)

Mellowing to: Glay - Kanojo no Modern (Instrumental)

--++WARNING!! POINTLESS BLOG-FILLER AHEAD++--

While doing some research on the net, A popup came up with the Classic IQ Test. Decided to give it a shot. And it's pretty accurate, too. You can take the test here.

Congratulations, Jared!
Your IQ score is
138


This number is based on a scientific formula that compares how many questions you answered correctly on the Classic IQ Test relative to others.

Your Intellectual Type is Visionary Philosopher. This means you are highly intelligent and have a powerful mix of skills and insight that can be applied in a variety of different ways. Like Plato, your exceptional math and verbal skills make you very adept at explaining things to others and at anticipating and predicting patterns. And that's just some of what we know about you from your IQ results.


They said there's a 15-page detailed IQ report i can get, with full details on everything, like what kind of jobs would be suited for me and where my strengths are and blah blah blah...

... for $12.95.

so fuck that :P

Also did the Super IQ test, which is more fun... here.

Jared, your Super IQ score is 133

Your overall intelligence quotient is the result of a scientifically-tested formula based on how many questions you answered correctly. But it's only part of what we learned about you from your answers on the test. We also determined the way you process information.

The way you think about things makes you a Complex Intellectual. This means you are highly intelligent and have extraordinarily strong verbal and math skills. Compared to others you are a highly conceptual and complex thinker and are able to understand information in an abstract form. You also show great attention to detail. In fact, it's hard to find something you're not good at.

How did we determine that your thinking style is that of a Complex Intellectual? When we examined your test results further, we analyzed how you scored on 8 dimensions of intelligence: spatial, organizational, abstract reasoning, logical, mechanical, verbal, visual and numerical. The 3 dimensions you scored highest on combine to make you a Complex Intellectual. Only 6 out of 1,000 people have this rare combination of abilities.

*Sigh* Lazy Days

Oscillating to: Breaking Benjamin - So Cold

*sigh* I'm back... again. I haven't updated in more than a month. I'd like to say it's because of my assignments and studies... but that would be a blatant lie. Truth is, i'm a lazy fuck. And to top it off, I'm only updating cuz people are bugging me XD. I haven't really been doing too much lately cept attending my lectures, bumming at home, watching movies, playing Lineage II, and taking naked pictures of myself, which i've posted here, and here. I've been trying my hand at vector graphics in my free time (which i do have a lot of), but i just can't seem to focus long enough to actually finish the damn thing. I've been working on it like, 10 minutes every day and each time i say to myself "ah, stuff it... i'll finish it tomorrow."

It's been nearly a week now :P


and buggered if it that isn't a big pic o_O;

If i get too lazy, I might just leave it that way and call it abstract art or something. There IS something... Picasso-ish about the whole thing. I got that whole 'missing body parts' thing goin on there. And hey, to some people... that's genius o__o.

Another naked pic here.

OFFLINE T_____T

Hey people |m/. i've already moved into the new place. it's pretty great... apart from the fact that my room turns into a sauna in the afternoon and the phone cables haven't been laid yet (and neither have i :P). I'm looking at 1 to 2 weeks before it happens (the cables getting laid, not me), so till then, i'll have to resort to visiting the uni labs (which are ALWAYS full) more often than i'm inclined to, to get online.

Classes are ok so far, but I can see they're gonna be tough in a little while. 6 months has all but rotted my brain, so most of the stuff at which i was pretty 1337 in college, is now partly foreign to me ^_^;;
Got a lot of relearning to do. To top things off, i'm taking cryptography, which is mad tough, especially if you haven't taken the prerequisite module, Advanced Mathematics for Computers or some such shit. Ah well, i'll live. I always did like numbers (geek). At least i've got a multimedia subject to ease my trauma of bits and bytecodes. God i hate IT -__-;;

Aight then, your 2 minutes of time (which you'll never get back, mind you... ever) have officially been wasted. I'll be back to update same time tomorrow. If there's no post... then just wait longer. Now bugger off.

Looking for a place

Aight, time to get this blog into gear. Started off coming here by getting all my necessities sorted out, like uni course, bank account, bicycle, yadda yadda. Dad came with me to help me out, so we took care of all that. He had to piss off to Sydney to visit my aunts after a couple days, so i was left with the task of finding my own accommodation. After putting up with Narc and Scnix for a few days, i was well into the checking phase of my hunt. Was cycling around Brisbane checking out houses and flats, most of which sucked. After nearly a week, i had found a pretty good place i wanted to move into, so i met up with the lady who owned the place, made all the arrangements, paid her, and moved in. Set up nicely, got comfy, settled in, was pretty happy.

Next morning, she knocks on my doorm wakes me up and tells me "Oh, I'm sorry, but i need the room back urgently. I've got a sick friend coming in and she needs a place to stay. Sorry again."

I mean... HELLO!!! i'm trying to SLEEP here! -___-;; plus i was pretty pissed off about having to move back in with Narc and Scnix, repack and unpack all my stuff, and restart the hunt for a new place. By this time, looking a place was a lot harder, as an entire week had gone by, it was only a couple days till the start of uni semesters, and all the good places were already taken.

Nevertheless, after 3 tiring days of doing the entire process of calling, getting rejected, calling, cycling clear across the city and checking places out, i found an excellent house in Yeerongpilly, which is actually pretty far from the city central, but only about 10-15 minutes by train, which was perfect. Massive room, lotsa space in the entire house, no noise limit (can blast music yay), massive basement/rec room under the house for parties/studying/jamming whatever, and large backyard with barbeque pit. Did i mention high-speed cable? could i ask for more? ^__^

Aight, i got uni tomorrow morning, so i'm signing off for tonight.

REVIVAL!!!

*N30 gathers his power and revives his blog from the maggot-infested underworld*

Yes, i am back. For now :P I'm currently in Brisbane, awaiting the start of my course on March 1st. For those of you who gave me crap for not updating, I'm sorry, but i'll try to update more often now. For those of you who actually PUSHED me to update again, thanks XD.

Normally, I'd start off my extended absence with a long, yet witty report of our escapades, but not right now. Cuz frankly, I couldn't give a crap. I'm just here to raise the blog, and I've just done that. More updates coming soon. Oh yeah, and here's a song dedicated to a special someone ^_^

Three Doors Down
Here Without You

A hundred days have made me older, since the last time that I saw your pretty face
A thousand lies have made me colder, and I don't think I can look at this the same
But all the miles that separate, they disappear now when i'm dreaming at your face

I'm here without you baby, but you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby, and I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you baby, but you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight, there's only you and me

The miles just keep rolling as the people leave their way to say hello
I've heard this life is overrated, but I hope that this gets better as we go

I'm here without you baby, but you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby, and I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you baby, but you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight, there's only you and me

Everything I know, and anywhere I go
It gets hard, and it won't take away my love
And when the last one falls, when it's all said and done
It gets hard, and it won't take away my love

I'm here without you baby, but you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby, and I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you baby, but you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight, there's only you and me

LINKIN|PARK|LIVE

Bangin' to: Billy Talent - Try Honesty

YOOOOSSSHH!!!! It's 2.20AM, approximately 4 hours since Linkin Park concluded their live concert at Stadium Merdeka. For those of you who went, cherish this once-in-a-lifetime moment! For those of you who couldn't make it, my condolences ^^.

Anyway, as most of you know, I rarely update my blog, and only if it's something worth mentioning. And this is worth mentioning. So, even though it's late and I'm tired, I WILL stay up to do this one thing, so people who didn't make it, can read about it here. |m/.

Ok, first off, I woke up this morning DAMN early (around 7ish) and proceeded to continue watching more episodes of Naruto, till about 12ish, when i left the house to go to Mid Valley... to hang out till it was time to head to Stadium Merdeka. The minor details which follow aren't that important, up until the point where we reached there on foot, at around 5pm, to find that the place was already jam-packed with people just waiting for the gates to open. This is what we had to go through before finally entering.

But before that happened, on a totally unrelated issue to Linkin Park, we were walking around looking for another way in that WASN'T so crowded, when we saw a girl in a tight tank top, denim mini skirt, and high boots. And she looked VERY familiar. Until my friend Raffique came along and went "Oh shit it's VJ Sarah!" and our brains finally went 'OH YEEEAAHH o_O!!'

Note: VJs almost NEVER look the way they look on TV. In real life, they're waaaay smaller ^^

Anyway, I took the oppurtunity to approach her and ask her for a picturem whereupon she said I first had to make a song dedication on TV for a show called Remote Control (*shrugs* I've never heard of it either ^^;). So I dedicated Maroon 5 - Harder To Breathe (cuz they asked me too :P) and got this moment immortalised on film :).... well not film technically, seeing as it was a digital camera, but why split hairs?



So I am a happy duck :)

ANYhooo... we made our way in, only to find that at least 60 metres of the entire front line was already packed with people. We decided we'd stay back for a while and try to work our way to the front. OH YEAH, I almost forgot! I ran into Kem and the OneAcademy bunch just before entering, so we hung out while waiting for the show to begin.

Lots of pushing and shoving later, we settled into a tight spot, were we were forced to remain for a while, while we waited for the opening act, Too Phat, to begin. Needless to say, NOBODY wanted to have to sit through that, so the crowd was pretty much riled up and having about half an hour of their time wasted listening to rap beats. bleh >P. I've got a couple pictures of them on stage, but I'm sure no one wants to see THAT, so I won't waste my time ^^.

AFTER that... and after about ANOTHER half an hour of waiting (I swear they made us wait on purpose, to get us riled up), some genius decides to blow up a beach ball and start tossing it around, where it was volleyed and smacked around the pit, traversing the entire mass. Not to mention amidst screams from the guy beside us of "WOIII, MY BALL WEI!! DON'T PINCH!! HIT ONLY!! MY BALL!! MY GENERATION!!" XD XD which was actually pretty damn funny.

ANYWAY, Linkin Park FINALLY made it on, amidst screams and yelling and rawk ons. They hit it off well with popular numbers, covering all their hit songs and some others. Lots pics, but most blurry and too far off. This is the best I have so far... gomen ^^.



During the show, we managed to push forward little by little, but never made it all the way to the fore, which is why the photo is really far off. But still, infectious beats, pumping rhythms, and some heavy-duty moshing made it an all-round sw333t experience. Kem seemed pretty content staying on the ground, even though I offered to give her some elevation above the head line. Mosh on, girl!

They rounded off their show with In The End, but after vehement protests of 'We Want More,' they came back out to play a couple more numbers. What a sporting bunch |m/. After we squeezed our way back out of the pit, we cooled off on the grass, soaking in that sw33t feeling of contentment, adrenaline cooldown, and a much-needed drink or two. Kem and Steve had to rush off to catch the LRT back to KJ, and I needed something to eat! So we searched out a mamak, and ate. And I returned home to upload the photos you've just seen.

Thus, my day ends with me bidding everyone a heartfelt 'Gooddnite' and 'Sod Off .|..'

P.S. Kemuri has full permission to leech this report, seeing as I leeched her Times Square report :P
