I dont know if you guys saw my last lj post but yeah, i've migrated to the USA. I'm kinda here now. Settlling down, getting used to things here. Not that I am already though. Just saying. I'm kinda in Brooklyn, NY right now. OH we've found a place already. A small basement to live in. It's small but affordable I guess and really near the subway! Then again, subways are everywhere here.
So a week in (well not even a full week) and they've started asking me to get a job. Like realllyy forcing me. It's not like I dont understand the fact that we're poor and all but I deserve to get used to my surroundings at least! SO I gave some excuses and I guess I prolly have to get one by mid April. Sigh. I wish we were still in Malaysia where I wasnt FORCED to do stuff I dont want to. OH and if we were back home, I'd get a scholarship for my pre-U by nowinstead of being so frigging lost here.
The deal with my studies is that they want me to go back to Highschool. In which I dont want to? If that message wasnt clear enough yet. The REASON they want me to go back to HS is so I can apply for financial aid and what not for college because my mum apparently doesnt want to pay for my college 8D YAYYYY. If she wants thaaat, i HAD that back home because I aced my national exam (still dont know how i did it hmmm). I cant use those results to get a scholarship here because it's not recognised! If this was UK or whatever then maaybe. But here? no. BAH. So HS, here I come. And I'm gonna be older than everyone! So, a senior in public school, chinese, from Malaysia, and a year older than everyone. YAY I'mma stand out. buck.
*happy pill happy pill*
I havent been in the loop about everything that goes on in the fandom world. SAD. I've been so blah lately that I just give up coming online. Who knew that was even possible. I've been here for about 15 days. So far it has been cold. My aunt was like "It's weirdd weather this year, weird weird weatherrr" Coming from a tropical country, this is to colld *burr*
I have ONE LAST RANT. Skip this paragraph if you dont wanna hear it. I'm sorry. I just NEED TO RANT. So yeah, it's probably already obvious that I come from a not dirt poor but still eat by paycheck kinda family. That's why I didnt even ask for anything even though I aced my exams. Nor did my mum offer but lets not get into that. (btw, my bro isnt staying here, he's going back home to finish his studies.) So we come here, obviously we need phones. Seeing how broke my mum was because we just spent a week in Beijing, I decided to go for something decent. At first I was like, DUH I WANT A BLACKBERRY! SInce it has kinda been my dream phone for oh I dunno, a shit long time? I changed my mind seeing there was this data plan that we HAVE to suscribe to monthly. USD30 a month. So obviously I got some other phone since $30 per month for 2 years ON TOP of the monthly phone bill was too much for new residents (mind you, jobless residents). BUT OHNO have no fear, brother is here. Right. He's always wanted an iphone but he had a sudden "oh I want a bb! I must have a bb to bring home!" Right okay. And who's gonna use ur data charges while u're away? waste 2 years worth of data charges? (my phone's data is like 10bucks but it's not necessary to get it, his IS) ugh. Idek.
AND THEN, on top of that, he buys a PSP. OH HAI THERE. bah. Not to mention 2 new shoes! yaay. All paid by mama-chan while I buy the cheapest pair of shoes and pay for myself. Oh I just love you mum. ♥ No, I really do mean it.
Forgetting that and on to more important things,
NEW PHONE NUMBAH! Ask me.
NEW ADDRESS! I havent got that yet. Will be moving in 1st April so I guess i'll know by then.
Oh something funny about the people we're renting the place from. The lady has this uh son that goes to NYU Polytech studying engineering. I think. and my aunt was like "think about itt~~~" to me. Oh gawd. Is getting a bf or being in a relationship that important here? lol. It's kinda funny. My cousin goes "no! I cant lose to ur bro and my bro, I need to get a gf!" I go lol.
So so far i've been to Manhattan like 3-4 times or more. Chinatown is my cousin's 'zone' so he brings us there alot. Kinda gotten the hang of the train system too but I still need the map to figure out the stations. My first starbucks in USA was hot chocolate.
When it all comes down to it, i friggin miss home. Like, fo serious serious. Random phone calls from zee lovely bluiiee has been cheering me up though. I ♥ you.
I MISS YOU PEEPAH BACK HOME THOUGH. GAH.
newskattuneito that means you, you, you and you.
