Truth be told…

By Aneesah, 19 May 10

(Inspired by Nabeelah’s post).

  1. I miss having cats around.
  2. I can be very awkward.
  3. Sometimes I wish I was a cooler person.
  4. I get jealous of people’s personalities. All the time.
  5. I can’t draw from my mind.
  6. I feel like I have grown up a lot, mentally. (Physically — I’m in denial about that.)
  7. I don’t want to spend my life as an architect.
  8. My voice sucks.
  9. I am so glad I have “found” many of my old friends online. Friends are wonderful, you know.
  10. Keeping secrets eats you up.

P.S. I knowww, new layout finally?! :shock: Longer entry coming later. And I know not all of the navigation links above work yet. Too sleepy now. Anyway, I’m BACK! :yay: Comments and bug reports welcomed.


  1. Nabeelah says:

    When I saw the new favicon I instantly thought, “New layout!”. Heheh. And your signature…

    Love the new look, I think it’s pretty.

    What do you mean you “wish you were a cooler person”? Are you kidding? (Although you’re entitled to feel whatever you want to feel) You ARE cool. Or cooler. You are definitely one of the greatest, coolest people I know.

    • Aneesah says:

      Nabeeeeeelah! :D It’s not my real real signature (but of course you know that), that’ll be how I write my name normally. And well, you’ve known me most of my life, but haven’t met me in ages. My extreme shyness as a child takes time getting over. I just feel so tak reti and so tak kool dealing with other people.

      Thanks dear! :)

  2. Saffa says:

    Finally! I’ve been waiting for this theme since the preview! :heart:

  3. hazirah hamzah says:

    pretty new layout :heart: <3 :heart:

  4. Mai says:

    Yey, new layout..kemas :) i didn’t realize at first since I read ur post from google reader , good thing u mentioned it :D
    I’m echoing ur points except number 1 and 5 haha..
    But I only draw potraits, of the same pose and angle, ngeh3.. kalau lukis bende lain seperti tangan yg real, kene refer jugak..

    • Aneesah says:

      Hahaha, itulah kena mention. ^^; Kekekeke not a fan of cats? They are the awesomest! Yeah kadang2 kalau dah lukis something over and over, your hand “remembers” it, but other than cartoony stuff, I memang fail bab2 creating a scene from scratch. :shake:

  5. Khairul says:

    I got jealous of YOUR personality. :(
    And your emoticons.

  6. ZacK1 says:

    Heh I’m agreeing with a lot of the points there.. but don’t be jealous of others’ personalities, you are who you are, be proud of it and to some people you might be the best person in the world ;) and you’re no way near uncool… tak cukup lagi ke? -_-;
    and your voice.. erm.. it doesn’t suck. Really. :P
    Very nice layout btw, :D I likes it lotss! If only I know how to do something like this…

    • Aneesah says:

      To some people, ek?

      Again, people who have known me all my life would see me differently. Tapi with new acquaintances, strangers, I am sangat tak kool. :shake:
      And thank you.

  7. Huimei says:

    Hey Aneesah! Glad that you’re back again! Been looking at your crafts in fb. Hehe. Looking forward to your new entry! :D
    I like the new layout! Really clean and sweet! :)

    • Aneesah says:

      Hi!! :D Gosh I really haven’t been blog-hopping in so long. I’m starting to add blogs into Google Reader now, so I won’t miss anything. ^_^
      Thanks Huimei!

  8. Wow, very different layout, but it looks really nice!! =)
    Hmm, number 7, how you don’t want to spend your life being an architect… Why is that? I’m just curious, since I know someone who’d love to be an architect, but doesn’t want to go to school for it(right now)…

    • Aneesah says:

      Thanks dear!

      To answer your question — because I don’t feel that it’s my niche, that is to say, what-I’d-love-to-do-and-am-actually-good-at. I probably will have to work as an architect, and I might enjoy it, but as of now, I can’t see myself doing it for the rest of my life. :X

  9. nadiah says:

    yeay :yay: aneesah has been back!
    saye sgt lah enjoy bace blog org so can’t wait for the long post u’d mentioned :dance: n u noe what, i’m having the same thought as you which is: “I get jealous of people’s personalities. All the time.”
    But yeah, eventho kite rse org lain nyer personality lg menarik..sebenarnye we hv it too..juz that we don’t feel we have it. Perbezaan pada setiap personaliti tu sebenarnya saling melengkapi and for sure if takde org yg berpesonaliti cam kte, bosanlah dunia, kan? No variations, no colors :T
    Dan sgtlah setuju ye dgn statement, ‘ friends are wonderful ‘ :nod: n u’re one of the wonderful person i ever met :)

    • Aneesah says:

      Nadiah, awwww, you put a smile on my very bored and tak-nak-buat-keje face. ^_^
      That’s very wise of you to think that way, betul jugak, kalau everyone jenis bubbly, suka bercakap, pelawak, periang etc. etc. takdela pulak orang yang nak mendengar, menegur, bincang benda2 serius, dll. It’s just manusia sgt susah nak bersyukur and selalu nampak benda yg kite takde je…

      Thanks a bunch for the reminder. :nod:

  10. Amin says:

    I had to read your entry 2 or 3 times because I kept getting distracted by the pretty layout! :D Awesome layout Aneesah! :clap: I really love the colour palette. And you tartan pattern! :boogie: Ditto on point 4. ALL.THE.TIME like right now, I’m very jealous of your personalities! :lol: Anyway looking forward to your long entry :D And welcome back, you have been missed *said the blogger who’s still on sabbatical! :D *

    • Aneesah says:

      Alamak, distracted eh? But that’s a bad thing! :P Eheh, tapi lama2 biase lah kan. Which means I need to update often la kan. Tapi mane semangat nak berblog when other people tak update ponnnnn. :shakefist:

      Thanks Amin!

      • Amin says:

        No3! distracting in a good way I mean. ^_^ Haha I’ll blog soon. Seeing you with new layout kinda makes me miss blogging. Maybe I’ll write after my exam :)

  11. tikki says:

    totally agreeing on

    but not so much of number 10, coz i love keeping secrets! wait, i love keeping half-secrets. (if you get what i mean)

    loving the new layout! :) i wish i was cooler in my designing@artistic skills. my pieces are sooooo boring! yours look totally original, cool, and soo aneesah like :heart:

    • Aneesah says:

      Haha, your voice sounds normal to me, very unlike mine yg seems to be stuck around the age range of 7-12. :suspicious: Tapi takpe.

      Hmm, a secret, if it’s pertaining to other people (which is then yes, a half-secret :B ) I probably can keep forever, but if it’s a deep personal one, which has been under wraps practically forever, you kind of live fearing it. =/
      Aww thank you Tikki, takdela original pun, the plaid pattern was just inspired from these plaid shirts I have (they seemed to be in trend during winter sales), and the flower pattern was from a bag I scanned. :lol: I’ll blog about these soon kot.

  12. shasabriza says:

    aaaawwwww, sumpah cantik gils aneesah layout baru ni!!! :clap: welcome back!!!!! :heart: (OK terlalu banyak exclamation marks di situ menunjukkan enthusiasm overdose) :dance:
    anyway, i miss having cats around too! :cry:
    takpelah tak cool, yang penting HOT! ^_^
    (OK i dah penat main emoticons. hehehe) :lol: :P :boogie:

    • Aneesah says:

      Betul, cats are de-stressers, bolek hug stroke squish pat timang2 cam baby, and they layan je. ^_^
      Oh sile2 la main emoticons. See me play: :D :) :B :T :| =/ :X :( :P

  13. Aneesah!!!!! I’m in love with your layout. :) So if you’re not gonna be an architect all your life, whatchagonnado? :)
    Some of my boyfriend’s zipper paintings are here: uziemperado(dot)com. Just go to his “more art” page. :)

    • Aneesah says:

      I want to be a professional crafter, have my own line of handmade accessories, craft store owner and spread the love and knowledge! :dance:

  14. Vera says:

    Oh a new layout :D It’s lovely! I especially like the way to footer is integrated with the rest of the site.

    Now I only have to finish integrating my own theme… and use your smileys again :P

    • Aneesah says:

      Vera! :D Thanks! I decided to retain the one-column layout with a multiple-columned (is that a word?) footer. Haha gotta have the smilies, I can’t imagine not having mr dance here :dance: or boogieman :boogie:

  15. […] (Inspired by Aneesah’s post) […]

  16. […] entry would likely be an extension of a few of the points in Truth be told…. I’ll stick in random photos and videos in case you need a distraction from all the […]

What do you think?
