i wanted to blog about how they found the tenth planet in the solar system, or the people in the world that i admire, or even how silly i find plastic surgery.
but i am not going to.

my dad just marked the end of his short two day trip to singapore by leaving in a cab, minutes before I started typing this. His last words?
"Remember what I said, no roaming around at don't have undue freedom"
a topic he never brought up in the course of his entire stay here until now.
Good grief. How to take someone as caustic about terrorism as him, seriously? Who doesn't understand the importance of not even harbouring prejudice in thought or word against anyone?
I grew up hero-worshipping my Dad, mostly because I never saw him I guess, with all the travelling that he did. He has qualities I like to say I hope I inherited.
Somehow age is not doing justice to our relationship. Neither is time filling up the ever-growing gulf between us.
I can stop fantasizing that my dad's like Atticus Finch.
not that I don't love him or anything.

busy discovering music on the eve of school opening...
downloading, transferring, emailing mp3s.
interpol, the fall, jeff buckley and hope to have more
because there is no joy like discovering that
you have a friend who has the music you so need.
all the music in the world, just to drown out the noise in my head
slow down my heart
and keep me sedate.

school kicks in next week and boy do I need to buckle down to work...I will be in 3rd year so that means my screwing around days are over!
anyways, just thinking what I have ahead of me, debating, lots of studying (I hope to clock in the hours that I have always been promising myself) and some wholesome activity like perhaps babysitting and maybe, just maybe, getting a job...something that I could pull off and not tutoring.
getting life in order is the first step to a happier one, or so I would like to believe and this time, I really need some rearranging.
a bit anxious for the fact that my ex-roomie got her room but i havent. so, am really keeping my fingers crossed that i get to move in with her.
a busy day tmrw, meeting people, getting some clubbing time in, before school starts and the world gets busy.
Heh, what a weird feeling to be in the last week of summer.

Everybody Hurts - REM
When the day is long and the night, the night is yours alone,
When you're sure you've had enough of this life, well hang on
Don't let yourself go, 'cause everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes

Sometimes everything is wrong. Now it's time to sing along
When your day is night alone, (hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go, (hold on)
When you think you've had too much of this life, well hang on

'Cause everybody hurts. Take comfort in your friends
Everybody hurts. Don't throw your hand. Oh, no. Don't throw your hand
If you feel like you're alone, no, no, no, you are not alone

If you're on your own in this life, the days and nights are long,
When you think you've had too much of this life to hang on

Well, everybody hurts sometimes,
Everybody cries. And everybody hurts sometimes
And everybody hurts sometimes. So, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Everybody hurts. You are not alone

i know it's a bit strange i posted up the lyrics of this song and all but it's an ode to all the friends i have lost and whatnot. feeling a bit sentimental about it (must be the PMS talking i swear!) but yeah am still aware that life does indeed go on. it's a fine line, this idea of caring and being proactive about it and pushing the other person over the edge. i have been described as a very intense person to be with, and so i just lose control of that fact that sometimes i really dont have the right to emotionally stress someone out, even if i do it out of ignorance.
it feels like a flaw to be so fundamentally me. having looked at some of what describes me ( I am an INFP Jung type, and a 6 on Enneagrams), i don't seem to be in a zone where i am dwelling on my strengths. the fine line of being compassionate and being overtly curious. the fine line of being a stranger and a friend.
the fine line between just superficially normal and deeply insane.
Heh, i should get better, less distressing things to blog about.

i have been a bad blogger
a real bad blogger. some pictures...for what you have missed out on..namely the two I took last friday at the barbecue celebrating the arrival of Hugo Isaac!

Cheryl, Me and Iman...very drunk...

Cheryl and Iman, because they insisted they looked like twins.

More photos when I figure out a way to resize them....or to have a proper layout...
