[update] Flickr, reformation & horrible week

Life has been tough these days. Of course, I wouldn't deny that I brought it on myself, but I can't help but eek out a defeated sigh, yeah? I'm very tired. I swear I will sleep by 2 a.m. tonight. But I really want to pass the Algebra II quiz with an A... (my grade in the class is currently an A-)...

And here's what's been going on with my life; since I officially dub this week as the "most horrible week eva":
-I discover that I practically failed the Algebra II test with a 77%. Ew.
-The same day, I also discover that I have a C in Chemistry--it's absolutely confounding (that I have a C, though it's in Science class...)
-I have 5 articles due on Friday (tomorrow). I've finished two of the five today and I'm getting ready to start and finish a third before I go to bed tonight. Or something along those lines. But, what a mess I'm in.

Haven't had the concentration to spend on photography lately, but here some highlights of my most recent batch:

1 parallel lines converge, yeah?
2 Color does not affect light.
3 Puddle of Autumn Leaves, The

Yep, been experimenting with b&w lately. Not sure how I like it. Your thoughts?

Oh, and, on the subject of photography, Lyzan Rashid is my awesome photo buddy :D


I, Miranda Leung, swear that I will reform my lifestyle after this week. I am going to change my life very, very soon, all for the better (those of you who know my uh, procrastination issues will understand). I'll give myself an assessment next Friday on my reformation progress.

Wheee! This is an experiment and display. Enjoy.

[update] Flickr - A SUPER B.A. POST

Hi everyone. Been busy. Surprise, huh? Hahaha. Lately I've certainly been busy, as you all have probably been, too. Hope life's going well for everyone, though. I'm not sure how I would describe life these days now other than them being 'busy.' There isn't a whole lot to say about anything else.

My personal life has been rather uneventful; I've been taking fewer photographs this past week or so, which makes me rather sad, but, eh. I'm sure there'll be catchy shots to come REAL soon.

My school life, on the other hand, has been, you guessed it--busy. But I'm not here to talk about how school is (I'm sure everyone is very tired from their own experiences)--I'm here to upload my most recent shots. Okay, I guess I'm kind of, sort of cheating by saying this, since some of the shots were taken during my summer travels, but, whatever! :D

Have fun, and I hope you guys are devout followers of The Purple Tide!!! :) And yes, I really must advertise The Purple Tide whenever the chance arises since I truly love it.

Enough of the trivial words? Here we go.

2Ma, I can drive!
3Reading in the Rain

The rest are at the usual spot.

So, really, tell me about your lives. Other than being busy. If you ever hear any juicy morsel of gossipinformation through the grapevine, do let me know. IT COULD BE THE NEXT BIG SCOOP ON TPT. And please do not worry, I am not out to get you or any of your friends, I'm just doing my job: raking up news.

If anyone is bothering to read this, congratulations. I am going to let y'all (eww, when did I start using y'all?) in on a secret: I only pretend to be a timid girl in school. I'm actually a daredevil undercover (and spy, too). So I shall, just for the sake of it, go up to people I am not familiar with and strike up a conversation with them! (Or just say hello). How does THAT sound? Riveting? HECK YES!

You may be wondering why I would want to do such a thing; and why NOW of all times. That's just how I am. Impulsive, spontaneous. I like to get a good kick out of surprising and/or proving people wrong, bwahahaha!

Look out, everyone :D and have fun.

[update] Flickr + TPT's First Issue Note

I have a dreamgoal of becoming a photographer and journalist.

If I may say so, I am pleased with my column in the first issue of
The Purple Tide, with the exception of one misspelling at the end... (sigh)

I'm trying to decide what I want to write for my next column. Possibly a continuation of life in Shanghai? Hmm. Any ideas?

I think I've realized the key to making a newspaper more appealing to potential readers: write something people want to know about. So, what intrigues you, my reader? Tell me anything you find appealing, interesting. You are my inspiration, my eyes and ears.

[misc] The Saddest Thing Ever

I was attempting to practice for my AP World test. Epic fail much? "This is crap." Wow. That's harsh.
