For the first time in ages, I'm actually in an excellent mood. Heck, I'm feeling great enough that I don't even notice how ugly this website looks! I'm actually feeling a bit guilty about having neglected it for so long. But still, I'm free for a week! Yes!

Yeah, I finally screwed that stupid term exam last week. The pure maths paper raped me, but no more badly than anyone else. And now I have a week-long term much spare time to waste, so little to do! I have no idea what I'm going to do now, but I suppose I could get to work on the long-awaited redesign for this website.

In other news, I've been dealing with my backlogged to-do list. I know I've been plugging the Wikipedia article on Ketuanan Melayu like crazy on this blog, but I can't help. I think it's that good. And I've finally finished work on it. Almost eight months after my overhaul of this crappy article commenced, I've finally produced a 15,000 word article on a subject of importance to anyone with a blue MyKad. And if you're ever in the mood for revising your secondary school sejarah, you couldn't do worse than Wikipedia. (We're a bit lacking in the sappy moralising anti-penjajah rhetoric, though.)

Also, for the first time in ages, I have nothing in my inbox that I need to reply to! Everything needing a response has been responded to. I suppose the next thing I'll have to do is either cleaning up this website, or cleaning up my room. I'll guess we'll just have to see.

Oh, and I have to start working on those damn university applications too. That stupid word limit on the online application's essay forms ticks me off, though...I can't help being verbose. Okay, maybe I can, but what if I have a topic that merits oh, say, 15,000 words instead of the mere 1,000 alloted to me? What then?

Sigh...oh, well. My to-do list is still shrinking at any rate. Life is good.

If it is not totalitarian to arrest a man and detain him, when you cannot charge him with any offence against any written law - if that is not what we have always cried out against in Fascist states - then what is it?
