Keeping Life Busy

When I was younger, my grandma got me into the habit to always plan ahead. This kept me organised and to always have something to do. I believe that it is important to always be productive,  because that way I know I am making the most out of my life. However I think at the moment my body can't keep up with my productivity....

Saturday was a big day, because me and the robotics teams had to meet up at school at 7:30 am... I am definitely not an early morning person. We got to school super early to participate in the 2013 Auckland VEX Robotics Scrimmage. Not everyone in the teams turned up on the day, so the five of us (David, Isaiah, Alvin, Felix and I) has to compete with our two robots.

It was a great opportunity to see our robots in action and meet other contestants from other schools around Auckland. Our team 2 robot was OP on the day XD

After a number of rounds in the qualifying rounds, our team 1 was ranked 4th and team 2 was ranked 1st on the leader board. Then we choose our alliances and competed in the quarter and semi finals. After winning all those rounds, our two teams went from teammates to rivals. Battling out for first and second place for the day.

The results from best out of three rounds, our team 2 gained victory with first place and our team 1 gained second place. Hooray!! Our two drivers Felix and Isaiah were amazing ^ ^

It was a really stressful day, because of our robots lack in battery life. A lot of running back and forth from our charging station was required. The last thing we wanted was for our robot to ran out of battery during the matches. However overall it was an awesome day, since both our teams were noobs at this competition and our results were not expected.

After we returned to school around 4:30 pm, I had to rush home and get ready for Anh's 17th birthday party. At the time I was very exhausted and hungry. Also there was a dress code (that not everyone followed) that we had to come in a dress. Which wasn't really what I am most comfortable with, but for Anh I didn't have much of a choice...

I didn't take much photos on the night, because we had enough photographers and I was to lazy. It was a good night with lots of food, laughs and photos taken.

Photos with the birthday girl :) and a photo that I liked teehee~

 I really wanted to try the Aloe range from The Body Shop. So I purchased a travel kit to try out some of their products and if I like them then I can go back and purchase the full size bottles. Here I have the Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser, Aloe Calming Toner and Aloe Soothing Day Cream. Which are recommended for sensitive skin. So I can't wait to try these out. :)

On Sunday me, Seryna and Anh planned to go swimming together. However Anh choose to stay home after a long day turning 17. So that just left me and Seryna going to the pools in New Market. I swam laps while Seryna was in the recreational lane tumbling with her brothers. At around 1.2km in 20 mins I got bored so me and Seryna got changed and went browsing through some shops.

We came across a newly opened Hello Kitty Cafe!! OMG it was so cute :3
I ordered a tropical mango smoothie and Seryna ordered a mocha and cupcake.
A great way to spend the evening.

And of course I have been regularly attending basketball training. However, today after training ended at around 6pm, me and some of the guys decided to join Alan and Wen at the cinemas to watch Iron Man 3. It was a late notice, so we all rushed home and got ready to catch the 7pm screening. We were not informed until we got there that it was in 3D and obviously we didn't go prepared, so we had to purchase new glasses... Anyways the movie was great and so sad that the story line ended T^T *tears*

OMG the holidays are almost over and I still haven't done any school work O_O I'm screwed.....
