Subject: The Weirdness Meme...Again!  

Hey everyone! Yep, I'm back from Melbourne and am now in my brother's place. The vacation was rather alright, although my family and I could have spent time going to more attractive places. Actually, my mother's friend who resided there brought us around the outskirts of Melbourne since she wasn't familiar with the city (which I couldn't believe at first). She showed us the 'not-so-exciting' places, but still fun. I think.

That was a few days ago. I wasn't in the mood to blog because I blame the weather. *chuckle* It's really hot and dry here in Australia and I feel very drowsy to stay in the "hot oven", despite me coming from an equatorial country. It's the feeling you get when you feel like doing something but you totally do not have the mood to do it. I hope you guys get what I mean! But this does not make me hate summer =).

After a long delay, I now (Finally! Whoops!) present to you the continuation of the Weirdness Meme. Only four more to go!

3. I am organised and neat. I strive for things to be in order, organised, neat and clean before I can do anything about it. Let's take my study folder for an instance. All of my written school notes are arranged by subject, then by chapter, following the syllabus in order. I make sure the notes I write are short, concise and condensed form of the textbook (even though they're still pretty long). I can't read from textbooks. They tend to like jumbling together redundant sentences and important facts, and I cannot regurgitate the more important ones as well as from my own notes.

Also, it makes it easy to search for them too. Without organising and arranging first, I cannot do anything at all. Period. I'll be moaning and complaining about how unorganised things are and how messy it is etc. And I can't work. And that's the greatest downside.

4. And from there comes the rigidity. I DISLIKE strategy games like chess and real-time strategy games. Why? Because I can spend hours and hours of thinking up the perfect plan without anticipating what the opponent can do, and suddenly he can do something surprising. And my plan would be ruined! And I'm doomed. I can't change my strategy and unfortunately, I refuse to do so because I can't bear to see my original plan going down to waste. And that is why unlike most guys, I don't play World of Warcraft. =) And that's a good thing, I think...

Oh yeah, and in Melbourne, I was a pseudo-guide for my family, jotting down the itinerary for the week to places that I would like to go. And suddenly, the whole itinerary was turned upside-down, with my mother's friend criticising most of the tourist attractions I had listed down and therefore, we didn't go to some of them as a result. A big let down. Not surprisingly, I sulked about it for a few days. =( At least half of the trip was going according to plan.

5. I have a phobia of playing the piano in front of other people except my family and teacher. The irony is that I'm a Grade 7 pianist! Argh! It's so bad I actually refuse to let my friends to come to my house, or reject people's invitation to their house which I know has a piano in it. Why? Because I will most probably be playing out a song to them. It's frustrating. I played at recitals before, but I was scared and really nervous. There was once I turned Nostalgia (a Richard Clayderman song) into a screwed up song. An unforgettable one which people would rather forget. And they actually clapped! I thought I would have broke down in front of them.

And also there are many other sour memories that fuelled to my phobia. Like not practising a song and my mom's friend "purposely" humiliating me by "forcing me to play in front of her friends" at her house. Shit! And they were chattering while I was struggling to read the notes and trying to play them. And the other time my mother forced me to play in front of my brother's friend, and all I managed to play out were scales. Not forgetting to mention that I failed my Grade 5 practical.

In other words, I'm a weak Grade 7 pianist, and I'm ashamed of myself to hear my friends who are a few grades below me belting some wonderful song which I couldn't play last time. And I suck at sight reading.

=(

But guess what? I still like playing my piano alone in solitude and am not giving up until I finish Grade 8. Hmm... now that is weird! ;) Unfortunately, this phobia has set me back a lot...

6. I don't conform to my gender stereotype at all. Everyone knows that I'm pretty feminine (or what the guys call me 'gay') for a guy. I remember last time I saw this quiz in a forum which asked how you conform to your gender stereotype. I think I have more defies than conforms. Here's the list for it, there are more though which I could not think up now.

Conform:
Have a small wardrobe
Can be quite dirty at times
I sound rude without meaning to
Pretty egoistical at times =P
Looks like an ordinary guy
Likes girls, not in a lovey-dovey sense ;)
Lazy to clean up
Loves my own smell - Weirdness #1
Hates sissy things and girly-girly stuffs
Gets pretty nasty when I'm mad
Serious about everything
Independent
Gives one-word replies when I'm bored/don't like you enough
Shops like a guy

Defy:
Hates strategy games - Weirdness #4
More artistic than scientific
Biology > Chemistry & Physics
Not very mathematical
Emphatic
Emotion runs my life and I am very expressive and also experience mood swings easily
Dislike being too bulky and hunky etc.
Loves languages
Have an overactive imagination
More at home with girls than guys
Can be quite vain
Prefers having intimate relationships with few people
Acts rather feminine for guys - gets insulted as "gay"
Hates fantasy genre
Over-analytic
Don't swear much
Dislike people who don't show emotion or are too cool
Act before I think
Blur most of the time
Graceful
Enjoys chick flicks once in a while
I love my life
Loathes deep logical thinking
Timid and easily intimidated
Loves to add some words which girls only use - like "Whatever, It's like, you know" etc.
I don't stare at pretty girls that walk by most of the time!
Keeps a secret blog where I spill out my inner secrets - which you are reading now ^.^
Neat and loves keeping things organised - Weirdness #3
Dislikes hanging out with people who are too pedantic or too engrossed with their games (mostly the guys)
Overuses emoticons
Goodie-goodie two shoes

Phew! That's long.

Congratulations! You reached the end of my weirdness meme! Now to tag my dear victims readers.

Sigh, I can't find six! Everyone has pretty much done it, except for katelyn, so TAG! You're it! csmc as well as jbwritergirl too if you guys want to. =)

I'll blog more soon when I get back home. I'll try my best to wake up early and go online to check up on you guys before I go shopping or something else. Thank goodness I have finished my Christmas shopping! Horray! Although I don't really celebrate it, I love to get into the spirit of Christmas! =D Alrightees, till next time!

You take your memes seriously,
ha,ha..

I can't stand clutter or unorganized things either.
I don't like games but just because they bore me. Your reason made me laugh.
I don't think there is anything wrong with not wanting to "perform" on the piano. If you like it who cares..
And I think that guys and girls are all different. So gender stereotypes are kind of meaningless..

Anyways, glad you posted. Enjoy your holiday..

Hey Frolic..I missed stopping by! been beyond busy..new job, huge project..crazy busy but in a good way..:)I just really needed to drop by and wish you a great Holiday with family and friends..and as far as your weireds..not so weird..besides facing a fear means growth defeating it or not is not what is important, facing it is..good for you..besides then someday we can hear you..luv ya..m

Ah, Frolicsome Kid, you're such a character mix! And full of contrasts :-D

You say you like everything organised, yet you don't like deep logical thinking.

I'm guessing you meant 'empathic' not 'emphatic'? That's a good trait.
In fact, a lot of your traits are good ones... and the ones that are weird - well, at least your conscious of them :-)

You know what, though. sounds like you didn't have good experiences with the piano-playing, which is a real shame. It really doesn't matter what anyone else thinks (or how rude they are) about your playing. Point is that you enjoy it, and find pleasure in it. One day, when you have played for yourself more, and built up your confidence again, you might play for someone else, and share your enjoyment...

Made me laugh about your not liking to play chess, because you didn't take into account the other player! :-D Good one! And sounds like it was the same with the itineray... All the best plans are made to be broken (so my dad used to say!)... half the fun is making them!

I'm totally the opposite to you in that I live in a cluttered house, have a cluttered life and do everything higgledy piggledy... and sometimes that really works against me, but hey, embrace your differences, I say - it's what makes you, me and everyone unique!!!

Just stopped by to wish you a Very Merry Christmas, and a Happy and Peaceful New Year!!

When are you back? It was lovely to see you round mine again - I missed you in between :-)

xx

Hey happy and blue 2! Yep, I do take them seriously, don't know why! =P Disorganization and messy things drive me up the wall. I'm really glad my younger sloppy brother isn't my roomie!

I avoid strategy games because I can't stand the fact that my plans keep going down the drain. It seems like I always unintentionally plan to lose!

I agree that gender stereotypes are getting more meaningless nowadays. Heck, there's this gender-switch surgery and people playing gender reversal roles. Hahaha... Self-expression!

I wish you a belated Merry Christmas (whoops!) and an advanced Happy New Year! Cheers!

Hey madd! Good to see you again! I know what you mean, sometimes we can get so busy we actually enjoy what we are doing. That's cool! Yeah, I hope that one day, I'll less conscious and literally face the music and willingly play in front of my friends.

Wishing you a belated (wish it isn't) Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! xoxo

Hey annelisa! Yeah, it's really ironic that I despise deep logic, yet I am really organised.

Oh yes, I mean empathic. Whoops! Spelling error! Thanks for pointing it out =). I'll edit it asap!

Hahaha! You're right, at least I know that part of me is weird! =P

Nope, I had had a few (or some) sour cases with piano-playing, and that unfortunately has drilled a phobia into me. So whenever you mention the word "piano" or "music", I usually recoil in horror, and you can see my face drain out of its colour. It's that bad. But then, yeah, I still enjoy playing it, else I would have dropped it ages ago. Hopefully one day, I will be ready to showcase my music to the world *silly grin*.

I have absolutely no idea that best plans are made to be broken. No wonder! And I have to agree that making itinaries are loads of fun!

Nope, I can't work with clutter. I'll be very conscious about it and go on yakking about the clutter and how someone should go and sort it out!

Just want to take this opportunity to wish you a Merry "belated" Christmas (boy!) and a Happy, Wonderful New Year. And that goes to all of my readers as well! Thanks so much for commenting!

If you thought cheap nfl jerseys No. 16 Arkansas was going to give top-ranked Alabama a good battle in the SEC West, well, you were out of luck Saturday night. Alabama improved to 6-0 (3-0 SEC) with a 49-30 victory that wholesale nfl jerseys never felt as the Nike Air Max 2015 Shoes final score might Nike Free Run even NFL Jerseys suggest. Nike Roshe Run Arkansas (4-2) fell to 0-2 in SEC play on a night in which they turned the football over five Nike Air Max 90 times. Against Alabama, that is far too many turnovers to have, and Alabama showed nfl jerseys store why.
