Judging a Book by its Cover

Mood: Gleeful but hungry~!

We are taught never to judge a book by its cover for appearance can be misleading and surprises unfold. One’s heart may not be as beautiful as the face and a plain exterior may very well have the most exciting personality that others can only hope for.

Nobody enjoys being judged critically based on appearance alone because we believe we are worth more than what meets the eye. Additionally, it is rude and discriminating to form assumptions according to one’s look.

You would be upset if somebody thinks you’re immature and an incapable adult just because you have a childish face or that you don’t stand out as a pretty being in which people concludes that you are a loser with no greatness in presence.

In every way, we are not pleased if people were to judge us according to our exterior — especially when they get us at the wrong angle! (Laughs)

Although we do our best to refrain from being so judgmental, we still commit this act rather shamelessly, which brings me to wonder…

“How do you judge a book by its cover?”

What is it that you sought after in a person’s face to tell you if he or she is a pleasant or a menacing individual? <.__.>

Is it by their outward presentation; the way they style their hair? The clothes they wear? Does the way a person smile affects your thoughts and feelings for them?

There are many signs and things to look out in a person that helps us to give an idea or pre-warn ourselves what kind and how an individual might turn out to be.

Personally, I used to hate it when people make assumptions about my persona. A number of people thought I was an evil snub and that I’m anything but a Chinese (which I really am a Chinese!). Or that I look older than my actual age and… <-__-> .. a few other stuff.

However I came in terms that I cannot stop people for assuming based on my looks therefore what you can do is, as you may have already been taught — Prove them wrong. <^-^>/ (Laughs)

I admit, I do judge people by their looks and I’m not ashamed of doing so because I always tell myself, “Hey! You could be wrong — I hope you are wrong! This person could be a good person for all you know so please, give a chance!”

Do not jump to conclusions until proven to be true.

However my dear friends and readers, please…

I hope when you are judging people from their looks, do not judge by their natural born features.

That’s silly and you get nothing out of it.

How does having a slightly imbalanced eye width indicates that this person is a bad or good person? A slightly bigger than usual nose does not mean this person is a greedy pig just like a natural born wide doe eyes does not imply an everlasting innocence.

In other words, to judge you have to be wise and just. You read a person by their behaviors and the way they carry themselves — Not by picking natural born flaws and defects. That is so mean. <`A´>/

When you get careless and fall on your butt, does your friend give away that gentle and kind smile? Or does she have that sinister ‘Serve you right, biatch’ grin?

I guess that’s how we tell a person’s character? Or at least this is how I do it. <_  _>lll

… Am I doing this the wrong way… I wonder. <´•ω•`>

You tell me.. and the rest of us! (Laughs)

Oh, one last thing I would like to point out.

“You can’t judge a book by its cover” is quite a bullshit phrase if you ask me. We all wear ourselves on the outside one way or another. I believe we study a person’s attitude and genuineness through the way we present and carry ourselves outwardly (i.e the way we dress, take care of our hygiene, speak, body language…).

It’s just that I think it’s ridiculous to read and make assumptions based on birth features such as how beautiful blue eyes are, small and cute noses, high cheeks, freckles — how silly. <=__=> There are no stories in those, really! (except scars and wounds)

Well then…

How do YOU judge your book covers, darlings? <´•ω•`>

P.S! MUST READ~! ↓

I love you all and may we keep in touch always, swapping stories and experience together~

This is Ms Aya, your ordinary ‘O’ type girl who bows her head to say,

“Thank you~~!”


Mood: Happy and serene

It’s me again!

And it has been ages since I last held a pencil to dirty the paper! <−ω—>/

Well I suddenly had the urge to draw but couldn’t quite capture an image.

There are so many pictures I’d like to extract from my imaginations but upon confronting the paper, immediately I see blanks! <≥A≤>

I then wondered what I used to draw as a kid. <´•__•`>

You know? What kind of pictures do you draw when you were a kid?

For boys, mostly cars and large vehicles such as trucks and lorries whereas girls… we like to draw people in beautiful clothes. (Laughs)

Animals and flowers are favorites too.

“Can I come closer?”

Anyway, here’s a simple drawing by yours truly. ↑ <^v^>/

↑ The expression and body gesture is as though she is asking, “Can I come closer?” with a sheepish smile across her face.

A figure that got me started in drawing.

I used to draw girls (Sailormoon) in nice long dresses and because I couldn’t draw fingers and toes, I had to cunningly hide the arms and force my girls to wear high boots. (Laughs)

Although I still have troubles drawing fingers and toes, it has improved most definitely compared to before! <OAO>/!!!

Being able to redraw an image which I had always tried to put on paper really makes me happy and glad I can draw despite it’s just a small talent. I may not be a spectacular artist but I’m happy to be able to draw something from my mind.

Also redrawing an old artwork from my childhood makes me love drawing all the more!

Well then with this given inspiration, sheep is going to draw more pictures now~♥

For the time being, do tell me…

What did you draw as a kid?

Rainbows? Trees? Flowers? Mum and dad? (Laughs)

Or you hated drawing so you got someone else to do it for you? <^-^>lll

Mood: Upset!

Hello!

Today I’m here to address a problem regarding the Blackberry Bold Wi-Fi and BIS issue.

Blackberry is all about going online 24 hours using the Blackberry Internet Service (BIS for short) in which we subscribe via our service provider (Eg Orange, Starhub, Digi, Maxis et al).

Some users may not fancy the idea of subscribing to BIS on a monthly basis because they think it’s alright to leech on hotspots with Wi-Fi all the time however and sadly, Blackberry Bold doesn’t let you off easily.

Just when you think you can save money without the use of BIS by leeching on Wi-Fi networks, you instead find your phone credit/bill going sky high; a leakage in your credit!

I’ve mentioned this matter a bit in my review but here are some emphasis.

Pardon me if I don’t get the terms/jargons correctly! I’m not an expert in this area! <-__->

And in this case, it’s mostly for prepaid users as I have no idea how postpaid works.

No! My Polaroid Camera!

Mood: SADNESS!

Ahhh!

I’m so upset right now! <´•__•`>

Weeks ago, clumsy sheep dropped her Polaroid camera and now it can’t seem to function at all!

It landed on the floor so hard that the batteries and certain parts came rolling out! 

I put everything back into place and even changed the batteries but it just wouldn’t work!

I also tried to dismantle the camera just to check the insides if there were any loose or broken parts however there’s this one very stubborn screw that prevents me from doing so!

Oh so frustrated and upset! <TAT>

What am I to do~!?

I wonder if taking to the camera shop for repair will help… <´•__•`>

It’s a waste to let it be a mere look-at ornament in the house. (Cries)
