nothing

It's cold; the layers have melted away.
It's exposed, raw, aching.

There's nothing left to shelter the pain.

It was snowing just last night,
It felt like home, and now
It is grey.

It felt like something worthwhile,
It was hard to take it in;
It's useless.



It's over now.

today is turning out NOT to be my day....I burnt my laptop's power supply, exploded my mum's kenwood...and now this.
i'm off to bed

role playyyy

Hello all,


I'm in a super happy mood at the moment because
a) I actually managed to study today annnd
b) my 4 thesis copies are printed, and are cvurrently lying in my car awaiting binding tomorrow. It currently feels so good to say: The End:D

Insomma,
as promised Nic. Mar and Amaira, here's part 1 of our little role play game. Basically, our Sunday evening was spent firstly at Mc Cafe....having a good old laugh like only we are capable of, followed by greeting Chiara at the airport (that was a coincidence though...ish), after which we proceeded for a ride and stopped next to the chapel of.....? (xjisima nic)...and decided to play the following game. We basically created an impromtu tale...and acted it out, taking photos of every stage. Unfortunately though, my camera's batteries died out before I could actually feature properly but never fear, part 2 will come ....eventually....or maybe it won't, whatever.

The plot in brief, is the proposal and wedding of Nicolette and Karl (all together now......HA HA HA), celebrated by Maria (viva n nies qassisin), with me as the evil bridesmaid who is plotting to steal Karl away......sad I know:P

I'm only uploading one video here since there are so many photos...ill eventually upload the photos somewhere....unless nic kills me first...


but dont kill me nic....im too young to die


:D

the end

So I'm sitting here in room 101 with jess and romina.....I'm re-reading thesis one last time and editing again and again....I've decided this will be my last thesis day and I'll print it tomorrow or Monday and hand it in. ehhh that feels quite good

Also, I've just got back from my 8-10am lecture...or should I say my last ever 8-10am lecture, at least for this course. It feels good too...but in a way it kinda feels sad. After 3 years of going to lectures and skiving many of them you get into a routine...and I'm gonna miss that. Who knows....maybe I'll be back for another course next year....I'm not ready to join the workforce just yet.


ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

insomma back to work

good day to allll

:)

Eurovision

Apparently blogspot will be out tomorrow at some point, so I thought it best to write something now, since I'm bound to regret it tomorrow then.


First things first: this post will not be remotely interesting or intelligent like the number of surprising intellectual blogs I've read in the last few days (:P....who know who you are).

2. I finished my thesis....completely ie...with the conclusion, and the editing  and reviewing...im just finishing off my bibliography as we speak whilst watching the eurovision, and that's it...I meet my tutor tomorrow...and give it in Friday week. wohoooo

3. Eurovision....well yes, I'm not usually a eurovision person, but the fact that I'm not with Amaira droning on and on about the thing actually made me wanna watch it....and deep deep down down, I do want Chiara to pass...and Win....ehh 

4. I changed by blog background to reflect my current mood and my current favourite colour....no I am not a pink person anymore

5. Studying in the fresh air is a good idea and very healthy.....studying in the sun all day long is not, as it will make you totally red and burnt and wil make it very difficult for you to continue studying. Studying photos below....







enough said for now...results are coming out....gluck chiaraaaaaa


Sadattant results are out.....gooooooooooooooo chiaraaaa:):):)

of bad days with a far better ending....

Today was not a good day.....


apart from my disastrous 'meeting' with my tutor, losing my new Tony Blair book, and fighting with one of my greatest friends, I spent most of the day either crying, or wanting to cry, or just wanting to give up on life in general.


But there's the positive in the negative too.....it's in times like these that you realise who your true friends really are.....I was so moved...the positive words and especially with the attempts to make me smile or laugh throughout the day....I really appreciated them all.  And now I'm just back from the Marana'tha healing service at Naxxar.....I had never been to one before, and I was initally a bit apprehensive, but at the end I actually enjoyed it....it was a very positive experience. tks Sim:)


Note to self: in times of trouble, must remember that there's a lot of good out there somewhere....and as Ger told me, 'you only have one bad day at a time, and this one is soon about to end' :D

illlll

Maaa I haven't blogged in a while.....like I predicted, this blog would just be there to get me through my thesis woes....and then I'd forget all about it.

But here I am, 4th May, 3 and a half weeks left to give in my thesis (Which is almost completely finished except for the last few changes uhuuuu)...the end is so so close now..... I can practically feel summer already....and as ive said over and over again....I can't wait.

Anyway, current song of the moment below....you've all heard it, but it's still great, and the lyrics are so relevant and so true.


Comments appreciated:)....it kinda feels good to be back here:):):)

Picture perfect

At the risk of sounding depressed, totally negative and without one fibre of hope in my being (three guesses what I'm feeling right now), I have just gone through a revelation which is small and seemingly insignificant but which really means more than it seems at first.

My beloved camera has been lying on my desk for over a week batteryless and with an empty memory card. And even before that week, it's been lying in my bag for months and I never so much as took a photo once. We haven't been having too many photo worthy moments in past times, and even if we had I don't think I'd be capturing them on film anytime soon anyway. The world is spinning so fast at the moment, and people and relationships are changing in the blink of an eye. Soon I'll wake up, and nothing will be as it is now anymore, and definetly not as it was before.






HELP!

le vendredi

another Friday....another blog.


I'm once again at my Euro-Med lecture, but for once I'm paying attention.

Had a so-so week feeling sick, dizzy and what have you, worked a bit on thesis, and anyway, I'm having one hell of a boring life right now.

Did you know every single diplomat in the world plays bridge? Apparently so...heh

Matt arrives tomorrow:) can't wait....and then Sunday we have Jess and Amaira's birthday so looking forward to that too....especially....cant say anthing else for now, ha ha ha ha

i'm bored now....becky is sitting next to me and she s bored too.....then there's ger sitting on the other side playing mahjong, and rach is next to her playing with farms and sheep. The EU really affects us deeply I must say :P


enough for now

guess who's coming to town??

OMG

OMG
OMG
OMG

decided to go on skype today after a long while to talk to Mark...and found Matt online.....

annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnddddd

he s coming to Maltaaaaa
on saturday
for a WHOOOLLLLEEEEE weekkk




WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO
I'm so happy :):):):)


it's past midday:S

Ok....so I just woke up! As in, I woke up at 10, took 2 panadols and went straight back to bed....aaaa what is wrong with me???? 


Yesterday I broke my lenten sacrifice....went with parents and bro to Melita...and I couldn't resist....had some pizza. oooo shame on me. I have to really make up for it now. sigh....

tickets for Allo Allo just arrived....we're going to watch it on the 5th of April...and I'm rather excited...should be good:)...been watching youtube videos of the old series and some of them are really hilarious. hehe watch this. 


This week its both Karl and Jess's birthdays...so we should have a relatively nice weekend:)...and then next tuesday its another public holiday, so thats great too (you've just gotta love March).

How sad I realised that since I'm working most of this week I won't be able to go to the ezercizzji at uni after all......I really wanted to go, heard that Tonio Caruana is an amazing speaker. ehh mhemmx xtamel. But lately I've been planning things on the same day, or just not writing things down and forgetting. Like the 5th me and Ver wanted to go to the youth worship at the chapel, but now i went and bought tickets for that day...ehh it cant be helped....i'm growing old and my brain is shutting down. hehe.

enough for now...maybe i actually do something before I go to work.

of perfect days

It's been a while since the last blog......well actually it hasn't really,but it sure feels like it has. Somewhere in the last week and a half my life moved from grumbling and moaning about the work I have to do and how little time I have left to do it, to just a system of working without complaint. Havn't been really out so much, and missing some of my friends A LOT, but  at least we're managing to fit in a couple of nights out per week. Holidays are around the corner now anyway so we can hopefully have some good nights out then.....I'm desperate for a couple of pints of beers! (xkien lol) I've also been working quite a bit at St James....I love it there: different artists, actors and producers showing up all the time, a million events taking place at the same time, tourists from different places.....insomma, I like my job:)


dont reall have much to say ta..... a big hello to the people I havn't seen in a while (HIIIIII:p) .....and I leave you with this....a perfect sunset on a long summer day....something which we can all hopefully enjoy relatively soon:)

enough for now

10 weeks....

I know I said I wouldn't worry, I wouldn't panic etc....but I can't help it. I have ten weeks to finish off and hand in my thesis, two rather complicated exams to study for, one long essay for god knows when....and after that I have absoultely no idea what it is I want to be doing, or what I actually am going to do.


The only thing I know is that I will be in Ethiopia again from the 4th to the 29th of August....and it's really the only thing worth looking forward to....though the finances are also a source of worry.
All the rest....well, it's up to Him now. I've decided to give up!

On a brigther note, a big shout out to my adorable little pest of a brother who found his way to this blog and has been teasing me ever since. Yes Jean....I DO have a blog....and Yes.....it's pink. Deal with it....and get back to studying for your Alevels ejja.....

Went to hear Redelectrick yesterday for the first time...had been meaning to do that for ages but never actually got round to it....I must say I was pleasantly surprised....it's so nice to see Matt on stage, cos it's clearly where he belongs and he should be. So well done Matt, and keep going strong:)


enough for now.....I'm at the library so I guess I'll start writing...again...

baking frenzy

Friday is officially my blog posting day, since I usually have internet access during my 1-3 lecture and use it to indulge in my little blog here. I say usually because we don't actually have the lecture today, so I'm writing from home in the process of checking the oven to make sure my brownies don't get burnt. Because lately I've become cooking-obsessed all over again...and so I've been baking and cooking things to my heart's delight....much to my mother's shock when she sees the kitchen when I'm finished (but I always clean up ta....and plus she enjoys it cos it means she doesn't have to cook herself hehe).
So insomma, I'm making brownies and shortbread for after the 9pm mass tomorrow at uni....so who wants to taste, come to mass. hehe
I am sincerely regretting my past two manga posts....I think....I'll know for sure tomorrow evening. I hope that what I'm thinking won't actually occur....sigh.
Also, I've decided to stop worrying...about the future.....when it comes, it will come. (and I'm so cringing at the literal Maltese translation hehe)
that's it for now....some thesis-writing now I hope, and then tonight slumdog millionaire...can't wait.
over and out

Spit lessons

Nostalgia and sadness are now firmly put behind me, and I'm determined to make the most of what I have around me for now. It's amazing though, how you can be on an all time high one moment, and fall so low the next. 


Today had a marathon of spit, and we played one particular game with two packs of cards....it was soooo nervewrecking: one second you think you're getting somewhere, and your pile is slowly vanishing and  BAHM!! one move and you're back where you started all along, or even worse off behind. A lot like life I guess; fun at times, so frustrating at others, makes you mad at everyone else at some points, creates hope and anticipation when you think you're getting somewhere. And then joy, sorrow, defeat when it's all over, possibly even relief. And ultimately you will forget all about it, or you will just remember it but it will lose the significance it had originally. It's amazing what a game of spit can do to. haha. Just for the record, I lost....again.

Must stop philosophising...or however that's spelt. Getting along with thesis somehow....it's a slow process but taking shape, and if I give it some more effort I'll be write on track where I should be. The trouble is finding the concentration to do it....but somehow...I will:)

Nostalgia big time

I'm lying under my quilt trying to sleep just now...and a big big bout of nostalgia for the events of last year hits me like a wave. Not really sure why I'm thinking about this now, but I just can't help remember all the stupid, crazy, lovely things we did in the past couple of years, and sadly realise how much life has had to change since then. I have to confess I miss you (ie Mark and MGS) so so so so so so so (you get the point) much....and I'd give anything to rewind back to last year and laugh one good laugh like we used to.


:)

sigh....
However since we can't exactly turn back time (yet....was watching Smallville yesterday and they do that a lot...so you never know, muahaha)...I'm attaching these two videos taken last year, with shit quality and whatever, but which always make me laugh a lot. There are loads of others I could and would post, but I fear some form one students (u min ghandu jifimni, jifimni) might find their way to this blog and then panic will arise...hahaha...

First vid is from the picnic at Delimara last year, and Karl relating his almost abduction story in true Amaira fashion...the censored parts were obviously censored haha
video

This second vid is from Malc's last birthday and the surprise at SAC we had made him; it's what I call a typical us moment: weeks of plotting and worrying that Malc's gonna find out the surprise we were planning, only to have him completely and utterly oblivious to the very last minute, Mark complete with balloons and me and Matt laughing like two complete idiots. haha ...good times indeed!


video



And to end this semi-nostalgic, semi-pessimistic blog on a more optimistic, more anticipant note, I can only say this: though it's hard (and believe me it is bloody hard), don't dwell on the good times like it's a bad thing they're gone, but thank God for all the wonderful memories, keep them close to your heart and cherish them, for they have changed your life and will continue to do so forever. And anyway, the separation is only temporary....the laughs will be back...for sure.

:D

Much love,
Dan

Lecture stresssssssssssssssss

Geraldine is sitting next to me,

Geraldine is really bored,
Geraldine says she is beautiful,
And I'm thinking: " Oh Lord!"

Becky is on the other side,
Becky thinks we need a life,
Becky wants us to shut up,
And we think she should grow up.

Rachel is also sitting here, 
Rachel is somehow having fun  .... (NOT)
Rachel is playing with the plug
And we're all hoping it brings her luck.

These short verses were brought to you in collaboration with the Euro-Med lecture on this very chilly Friday afternoon, as a result of boredom and the dire need for us girls to get a life. Now I'm expecting comments from Ger, Rach AND Beck (yes Becky....it's really you); didn't write a poem about myself cos I'm too special, so suggestions welcome:P best post wins a special prize....ha ha ha

much love, on this very boring Friday afternoon,

(and thanks to Ger for sending me the notes I was supposed to be typing whilst writing this.....ie Ger ibatomli:P)

Viva l-Karnival

It's official: carnival is the most useless and ridiculous holiday out there, and I hate it....HATE IT!!!!
No offence to all you carnival lovers out there, but I see little joy in dressing up as god knows what and parading the streets of Valletta, Hamrun and wherever else looking like an idiot, with loud loud music playing everything from the Macarena to a Happy Birthday rock remix, and Claudette Pace screeching in the background. At least that's what carnival sounds likes from the super thick, many centuries old walls of Sjc, where I happened to be during not one but TWO such carnival afternoons/evenings. And where I am writing at this very minute. aaaaaaaaaaa

Not in the best of mood's today sorry....I don't wanna be in this place (literally, and metaphorically), and I just wanna cover myself with my quilt and continue watching House till I dose off.

On a completely different note, this is for Liana and Matthew....I know you love it and I love it too. I miss you guys. xxxx

Es lässt Kälte erfrieren!

Man it's cold! Slept for an hour, expected to find my feet nice and warm...but nah....one whole block of ice. It's never been so cold before; it's usually nice and sunny in February, and we're practically in March now so it's usually summer already. ehh....the world's coming to an end, or global warming is finally catching up on us....whatever it is....


Es lässt Kälte erfrieren!

 Insomma,  I've been watching Music and Lyrics this weekend, and particularly liked one song which features, so posting the video here. Enjoy:)

Confusion

You reach a certain point in your life, where you more or less know what you want to be doing in the near future, and have more or less decided which path to take, when suddenly a new, enticing option pops up out of nowhere and takes you completely by surprise. The only trouble is choosing which path to actually take; the one you had decided to pursue all along, or the new unknown option.

It's safe to say I'm going through this myself; I've been thinking about it all the time for a long while now, and this weekend was a sort of a revelation which left me all the more confused. I have till the 22nd of May to finish off and give in my thesis, then a couple of exams and after that.....who knows? The world's all mine to discover. Problem is, I'm not quite sure I'm ready to discover the world as yet. I'm happy with my life as it is right now, with the things I'm doing and the people who are in it, and I'm so afraid the change will bring along changes to the relationships with the people I've come to love so much in these last couple of years, months and weeks. It all oh so stressful....sigh.

A few months ago I was panicking because I didn't see any roads to take in front of me, and now....there are so many I don't know which one to chose.

I'll decide eventually I guess....hope I manage to make the right choice.


Until then, thesis writing continues:)
Much love,
Dan

PS I'm not really in this depressive mood ta, I was just thinking a lot these last couple of days (and no....it didn't hurt, so much:P)

Happy Valentine's Day

Since today is officially the feast dedicated to love, I thought it best to dedicate a special blog to the occasion. I received the cutest ecard ever from a great friend this morning, and liked the message so much that I've decided to share; after all, Valentine's day isn't just about love between two people, but it's about celebrating with all those who are there for you through the good times and the bad, the ups and downs, the highs and lows, every single day of your life. And I must say I feel really blessed that I have many of those people in my life:)

Anyway here goes:

Valentine's Day is the perfect day for remembering special people:
The warm, caring people God brings to our lives.
The people who bless us through the special things they say or do.

The God of love and peace shall be with you.
II CORINTHIANS 13:11


Happy Valentine's Day

Sick

I was sick two weeks ago....and I didn't let myself get better properly so got sick again this week:S...must say today's the worst day so far this week....I've been coughing all morning and have no voice, plus my nose and ears hurt. It's so sad.

Guess I'm stuck inside today in bed, wrapped up in a million quilts...I HAVE TO get better by tomorrow....big plans and will see them through no matter what:)

It's off to write some thesis then I guess....

Results

AAAAAAAAA My first result just came out....or rather it came out earlier today but me and my course mates only realised it now....and I passed:):):) i'm so happy I could sing....in fact, I probably will:D


Life is good....sometimes we just don't realise it.

Enough said.

Cheers

First post

Due to the alarming number of blogs that have been arising in these past months, I've decided to join the mass and create my very own; a welcome distraction from Facebook I guess:)


Not planning to write much, but will occassionally jot down some random thoughts as thesis stress starts to pile up (and that should happen pretty soon I guess now:S).

In case you're wondering about the inspiration behind my blog name, Supermassive Black Hole is a Muse song, and Leave Out All The Rest is Linkin Park's, and they both feature in the recent Twilight movie, which of course I am TOTALLY crazy about...sigh...

enough for the first time I guess

cheerio
