En la repetición

On repeat is the title.

I know I said I won't be coming back but damn, the temptation of writing when you had something in your mind is just.. umm let's settle with irresistible.

I hate being awakened in the middle of the night but yeah, I am only human after all. What say do I have in the normal cycle of my body? Oh wait, hate is a strong word. I just don't fancy it, not at all.

I wonder is it the weight of the exam? or the dying sound of my alarm clock? or even the raucous sound of everything? I'm not sure which one fits in the answer mold. I didn't ask my body. X

Anyway I have an exam tomorrow and truth is I haven't finish study. But come to think of it, when did I ever finish study something? Aww, too bad! too bad!

Worst part is I wasn't so keen on having exam but then I read one thing posted by my friend on twitter. A lil' something like this

"This is our last semester. Why do we have such feeling of laziness rather than being extra happy to go sit for the exam? It's our last semester. We won't have all of these later, better cherish it now."

It's obviously not like that but I can't seem to recall the exact words but the meaning is there.

Reading this, it's like a good knock straight up to my head!!

This kind message is supposed to last for the whole semester but yeah, you know. Human!

It lasted for only few hours and dang the laziness resides back! Big time slacker.

I put it in here so that whenever I feel like straying away from my goal, here's the big knock again!

Anyway as usual, here's an excerpt from the book 'To Kill A Mockingbird" :

“We know all men are not created equal in the sense some people would have us believe- some people are smarter than others, some people have more opportunity because they're born with it, some men make more money than others, some ladies make better cakes than others- some people are born gifted beyond the normal scope of men.
But there is one way in this country in which all men are created equal- there is one human institution that makes a pauper the equal of a Rockefeller, the stupid man the equal of an Einstein, and the ignorant man the equal of any college president. That institution, gentlemen, is a court.”
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

“Naw, Jem. I think that there is just one kind of folks. Folks."

Jen turned and punched his pillow. When he settle back his face was cloudy. He was going in to one of his declines, and I grew wary. His brows came together; his mouth became a thin line. He was silent for a while.

That is what I thought, too," he said at last, "when I was your age. If there is just one kind of folks, why can't they get along with each other? If they're all alike, why do they go out of their way to despise each other? Scout, I think I am beginning to understand something. I think I'm beginning to understand why Boo Radley stayed shut up in the house all this time...it's because he wants to stay inside”
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

Send Me Away

Saturday, October 29, 2011

It shows the clock isn't dead as I'm writing this, it's freaking 4 am. Yeah, I'm wide awake. Thanks to a part of a day dozed off.
I haven't been writing anything lately. Not that I've ran out of muse but it's just I'm frigging busy to the extent that I prefer to ditch anything that goes in the distraction department. But hey here I am writing again just because I feel like writing something in the sound of nothingness at 4 am. Kudos to the sound or perhaps to the part deaf ears.

Well I have foreseen my days ahead and I think it's gonna be hectic. Like mad hectic! Whatever. It's not like I couldn't survive it.

Anyway a word came to my mind before I went to bed just now, hence giving me some sort of interest to write back in here.
Define sincerity?
I don't even know where to begin.
But I do believe people should bring a pocket of sincerity everywhere they go.
Because people would rather be polite than sincere.
It's in the back of our mind. I know. I do too.
But let's try to be sincere, shall we?

It's quite hard because we were raised to see life like that or to live life like that. I mean to be polite rather than sincere even in the toughest time.
We prefer to endure rather than saying No to a thing we know we couldn't handle. It's good to be polite but what's polite when it robs the essence of sincerity?

It's just something to ponder. Work the brain, think and think again.

P/s: Let's just say I'm on hiatus. I won't be back till everything is finish. Till then, Xo.

Promise Yourself

Sunday, October 16, 2011

" To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel

that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,

and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past

and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself

that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,

not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you. "

Christian D. Larson
