In Desperate Need of Caffeine

Dear people who tag on my tagbox,
Can you not tell from these posts I write that I, under strict circumstances, speak English and, more importantly, do not speak Malay? ): I know I may look the part but hey, I am not a Malay nor do I understand Bahasa. Please leave messages in English next time, alright? :) Cause, I'm afraid I would not be able to reply to your tags if you don't 
Love, Joanna.
You know, I can't tell if my tags are from real people anymore.
I've actually a sinking feeling they're all bots. LOL. Sad me.

It's an all-nighter for me, everyone.
I can barely keep my eyes open.
My upper eyelids are on their way to meet with my lower eyelids and once they do, I will be forced to drift to sleep.
They're halfway there!

I've got to go brew myself a cup of coffee.
LOLJK. I don't know how to brew coffee.
I use typical 3-in-1 sachets. :D
Which we're, as of now, sadly void of.
Fishsticks. |:

Glenden's Blogskin Request, Completed.

A day and a half's worth of work has finally paid off.
After so many months, I'm done with Glenden's blogskin request.

I can't believe it took me this long to complete it. I guess this just goes to prove that I work best under unconstrained conditions. I simply could not get myself started on it as soon as I've intended. I was way too busy worrying about what Glenden might want. LOL.

I end up doing this smoke-y typography thing. It turned out better than I thought it would, I must admit.
I'm not satisfied with the color combination though. But I'm just way too worn out right now to be bothered to do anything about it. I've been coding this for almost the whole day today.

Well, anyhow, it's off to bed.
I will make the best out of this weekend.
I plan to sleep all my awful eyebags away. :D

First Letter Capitalization In Java

Hey! It's 11:11pm.
Make a wish! :D

Alright, 11:11pm over. Haha.
Now, a very good evening to everyone. I had just finished helping Jez code a Java program. Good gosh, I feel so accomplished. Haha.

import java.util.Scanner;
public class FirstLastName2 
public static void main (String[] args)
String firstName;
String lastName;
String lastNameCap;
String firstNameCap;

String firstLetterFirst;
String remainderFirst;
String firstLetterLast;
String remainderLast;

Scanner keyBoard = new Scanner(;

System.out.print("Enter your first name: ");
firstName = keyBoard.nextLine();
System.out.print("Enter your last name: ");
lastName = keyBoard.nextLine();

firstLetterFirst = firstName.substring(0,1);  // Get first letter
  remainderFirst   = firstName.substring(1);    // Get remainder of word
  firstNameCap = firstLetterFirst.toUpperCase() + remainderFirst.toLowerCase();

firstLetterLast = lastName.substring(0,1);  // Get first letter
  remainderLast   = lastName.substring(1);    // Get remainder of word
  lastNameCap = firstLetterLast.toUpperCase() + remainderLast.toLowerCase();

System.out.print("Your fullname is: " + firstNameCap + " " + lastNameCap);

Yeah, I suppose that doesn't make sense to many of you.
That whole gunk of codes up there basically just asks you for your first name and last name and then displays your full name with the first letters of your first name and last name capitalized.
The program looks somewhat like this.

Enter your first name: joanna
Enter your last name: morales
Your full name is: Joanna Morales

So... yeah. That's what it does.
Yadayadaflipflop, boring things. Haha.

I got home from PE some two hours ago. We had volleyball drills and stuff.  It's unbelievable how tired all that physical activity left me. It actually wasn't as strenuous as I tried to make it seem but, darn it, am I exhausted.

Discrete Mathematics and Physics; I've yet to do my assignments for them.
I should have gotten them done sooner.
Oh, fudgeballs.

Sleep sounds really good right now.

The Room on the Sixth Floor

Hello, everyone. :)
It's been ages since I last blogged. I quite honestly am rather disappointed at myself with the post before this. I've taken the time to read it and, in hindsight, I was being ridiculously depressing. HAHA. We can't have that. I'm sorry.

To those who missed it, I've already deleted the said depressing post. IT DAMPENS SOULS. Especially mine, lol. So, I found it to be incredibly unnecessary to keep it up. And besides, things have become ever so much more better since. :D

Anyhoo, tons of stuff happened this month. Jasmine, Aaron, Dad and dear Henk Pookie had their birthdays. Daddy turned 50! :D This year was, I believe, the first time I've ever really done anything for Henky's birthday. :D I got him cupcakes and made him videos. It was frankly one of the most fulfilling things I've done lately. :)

Besides that, school has started. :D
I am now a 2nd year Computer Science student. Sounds fancy, doesn't it? Haha. :) I can't say I'm now better adjusted cause I'm really not, lol. I got separated from my old classmates and I am now bundled up with a bunch of new ones. They're real nice people, I should say. It's just taking me a while to get comfy with them. Though, I suppose it's too early to really say anything. We've had barely two weeks together. LOL. It's alright, it's all good. I'm very optimistic about this. :D Haha.

My schedule is, by my standards, quite ideal.
My day starts at 7:40am everyday, Monday all throughout Friday.
On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, by 3:35pm, I'd be through with all my classes.
I get to go home at 12:30pm on Thursdays and on Tuesdays, my day ends at 8:10pm due to PE.
I also have my NSTP-CWTP subject, which takes up 3 hours of my Saturday afternoons, 1:30pm to 4:30pm.

I hereby present to you my timetable.

If you so happen to be a stalker of mine, you are more than welcome to view that in full-screen. :) LOL.
I really shouldn't have bothered with elaborating on my schedule when I planned to upload a picture of my timetable anyway. Hahaha. Oh well. :D

Okay, I wasn't being very honest. My schedule is anything but ideal. LOL. Though, I'm not complaining.
It might not be everyone's definition of ideal, nor is it mine, but I've come to really like how my subjects are spread out throughout the week. :D

Calculus scares me but I find my other subjects quite alright. :)
I guess I should start working on those assignments now.
Yes, now, at 1:08pm in the afternoon.
Yeah. I'm nerdy like that. :> HAHA.

And oh, my new beloved classmates got this song stuck in my head.
It's insanely entertaining. LOL.

I'm just being random here but, I really want to use them musical stairs in this video.

Till next time! :D
