Super Chill

17:00 / 20th January 



I have days where I am extremely productive and I get a lot of shit done. But today is not one of those days. And I love it. 
My bed is unmade (don't think I'm making my bed until I go to sleep tonight haha), and I just showered. Gross, I know. Been spending my time catching up on YouTube videos, looking things up online, watched a movie. I've been working these past 5 days, spending around 45 minutes in the car going to work, and another 45 minutes going home from work. 
I forgot how congested the road is with cars on weekdays. But thank God my manager is kind enough to give me a shift that allows me to go to work / go home from work 
after the peak hours so I don't have to go through the horrid traffic jams and get stuck in the car for over 2 hours. 

Work has been good btw ! The past Idk, 6(?) months, I've only been working once or twice a week so it feels really fulfilling to be able to work 5 days a week like a normal working person would and earn more $$$ hahaha. No doubt it drains me, with all the driving, and serving customers, and sticking to a routine but like I said, very fulfilling. I feel like I'm spending my semester break well. I'm not going to work my whole semester break though, probably leave a week or two free so I can go out, have more super chill days at home alone / with my family + cats, see Irfan and my best friends, blog (!), binge watch TV shows and movies.. Y'know all that fun stuff before classes resume. I am terrified of getting my results, I feel like I didn't do particularly well last semester due to the lack of motivation and preparation. Ugh I felt like I was all over the place. But it's okay, I have 6 more semesters to change that haha. 
Let's just hope I do. Speaking of uni, my convocation is in a month ! So excited but kinda freaking out about what to wear.. not like anyone can really see what I'm wearing under the robe anyway haha but I just wanna look and feel pretty.

I just got home from supper with Jane and Jiha. The three of us have been wanting this book called this modern love by the YouTuber Will Darbyshire. Jiha was at Kinokuniya the other day so she saw the book and got the three of us a copy each ! She brought the books with her, all still wrapped in plastic, and we opened them together and got super excited hahaha. I'm probably going to stay up for a bit to read and then go to sleep. One of my new year's resolutions was to read more so I'm definitely on the right track hahah. 


How was your day ?

    1. Aww that's so sweet ?! Haha thanks for still coming here despite the infrequent posts ! Hmm, probably cut down rice.. I've seen people lose weight from cutting down rice so I think it works. I don't personally know how to lose weight because I'm actually trying to do the opposite haha

  5. Hey Izza! Just wondering, do you ever feel used or taken advantage of by your own friends? I'm a pretty 'rajin' person in terms of how I always go to all my lectures and jot down everything important and overall organised. I feel like sometimes my friends depend on me and just come to me to get what they need. Do you get me? This has happened one too many times. But I mean, being a good friend that I am, I'll always help my them. Idk if I should be annoyed or upset or am I just over thinking this? Sigh.

    1. Hi ! I do sometimes.. especially in group assignments, like I think they purposely don't do their best because they know I'll pick up the slack and either edit / improvise their parts. It sucks that you feel that way ! BUT think of it this way, they're probably incapable of being as organised as you are, and even though we don't know what their intentions are (using you or genuinely asking for help), more good will come to you then them. If they come to you, that just means that you're one step (or more!) ahead of them. You are a good friend because you help, and just continue helping. But help in other ways that make you feel less taken advantage of, for example if they wanna see / copy your work, instead of just letting them, ask them what it is they don't know and TEACH them. I swear the more you help them, the better you are at that topic / subject. You're not over thinking, i've felt this way too and I guess it's pretty normal. Just try and see the good over the bad. I hope you feel better ! x

  7. Which dUCk materials do you prefer? Is matte satin ok? jersey? 'gergeotte'? Like im so confused with their materials.. I wanna buy online but takut salah beli jenis kain. Which one yang macam chiffon eh? Yang keras, senang bentuk, senang gosok? Mind sharing since youve that experience. Thankyouuu

    1. Matte Satin is amaaaazing. I don't own one yet but I'm around them enough to know that they're so lovely to wear cause they're not that slippery and they drape beautifully. Jersey is super comfortable but more suited to like casual wear or days you malas pakai tudung, or even for flights or long car rides, jersey would be good. I get why you're confused but really the only way to know which one you prefer betul betul is to feel the materials yourself if you get the chance to because lain orang prefer lain so I can't really pinpoint which one is best for you. dUCk punya chiffon range is lovely but it's quite lembik, the georgette range however is nice, it's senang bentuk and it's not that keras or too soft. Mixed crepe is keras and senang bentuk too, but the drape tak cantik sangat if you suka lilit banyak. All of them are senang to gosok in my experience ! But safest choice would be georgette or mixed crepe if you're not sure :)

  9. Hey Izza! I was just wondering, what do you do with your old planners? Cause I have some from a couple of years ago and I honestly dk if I should just throw them out or keep them. But then again there really is no point in keeping it hahah :) xx

    1. Hii ! I'm a sentimental freak so I keep them... hahaha. But only the recent ones like from 2014 onwards. Back when I was in school my planners were just full of school stuff so I didn't bother keeping those. It's up to you really !! I just like to flip through if I wanna remember something. xx

  10. Hi izza. This might be out of the topic, but how do you know if he likes you? Or is it simply because he needs someone around?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hiii. Ooh thats tough, but come to think of it even if he needs someone around, it's still you he chooses and it is probably because he likes you. Why would anyone want to have somebody they didn't like around, right ? But yeah if you feel a bit off about it, then just be a little careful.

  11. hai izza..is it okay if i wanna let out and ask u sumting? so i have been with a guy for around 5 years. on the fifth yearof our dating i suffered panic and anxiety attack. hes been through with me, but at some point he couldnt stand it also. and then we fought,and he left without saying anything. and came back saying he fell in love with sumone else, but didnt get her. so he "cheated". long story short, i decided to give him another chance, and we are okay now, better than before, but in my mind i couldnt stop thinking abt that girl, i stalked her insta and everything and she is very very beautiful, religious, smart. the kind of girl men would want. and im just shit. having anxiety and everything. he said he doesnt have feelings for her anymore and i shud not bring up abt her. he just wants me to have confidence. even though im happy with him now, truth is i still have doubts. if u were in my position, would u feel the same?:(

    1. Hi ! First off I'm so sorry to hear that you suffer from panic and anxiety attacks, I've never experienced it but I know it's difficult. The fact that you're happier and better than before is already such a good sign that everything is working out, happy for you ! And to answer your question, if I were in your position I would honestly feel the same. Like worried, doubtful, and insecure. I know because I like to compare myself too and it's so bad. But just remember this : you're the one with him now, and he chose you, and you two are happier than ever. Try your best not to think about her or stalk her anymore, and don't bring her up. I know it's hard but you have to do that if not you'll never feel at peace with yourself and/or your relationship ! Whatever that girl is, I'm sure you have equally as many amazing traits if not more. Cheer up, okay ? Be happy with him ! :)

  12. hi izza, quick question about skincare. is it okay if we exfoliate our skin say more than once a week? is that a bad habit?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hii ! It honestly depends on your skin, so I can't really say if its bad :/ I have friends who exfoliate almost everyday and their skin is amazing, but I also have friends who exfoliate too much that their skin ended up becoming worse.. So just try it out first, see if exfoliating more than once / twice a week is doing your skin any good.

  13. hi izza. how's the book? and what is it about? is it worth it for Youtuber's writing ?

    1. Hi ! I really like it. It's a book full of love letters from real people all around the world to their boyfriends / girlfriends and even ex's. So it's not exactly Will's (the YouTuber) writings. You can watch a short video about the book here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIaRg3QdkLk
