“..It is a noble feeling, but it is still a feeling. Now no feeling can be relied on to last in its full intensity, or even to last at all. Knowledge can last, principles can last, habits can last; but feelings come and go.”
Lying in bed thinking about things I shouldn’t be thinking about, and I’ve to be up in 6 hours to start my first week of tutorials.
I have such little faith sometimes it sickens me. In myself, in the people around me, in God. Used to tell myself that I want to have so much faith that people question why. Where did that go? Rethinking everything just when I thought that everything was in place. Why do I do this, why
Sleep is an escape & it will always be.

… Now that school has started, this quote is more relevant than ever, and I’m more compelled to write here to distract myself from ‘work’ haha I forsee myself posting a lot more from now on
It’s not like I don’t like what I’m studying, it’s just the fact that I have to sit @ one place and focus on one thing for so long that puts me off. Look what I’ve done to myself after the 8 month long holiday
Was really worried about university & hall life, but after the first two weeks I can safely say that I like it :) I’m studying things that I actually care about and am interested in, and I’m thinking of doing a double major in psychology & social work ahhh pretty excited but I need to work so much harder omg. Loving the fact that I can control my own time as much as possible now, even though more time to myself = more discipline required
As for hall life, the unfamiliar has become the familiar and it feels more and more like home there. Got to meet so many new friends there and different kinds of people.. shan’t elaborate more but I’m really thankful for my neighbour & the girls from my level. Everyone is really helpful and friendly too, I could really get used to this heh. Met really inspiring people who manage to juggle like 10 things at a time, talented people who can do everything I can’t, people with great interpersonal skills, people with kind & genuine hearts, etc etc. Am still trying to get to know them better :)
Thankful for old friends who make the effort to meet up & catch up; having faith in the rest who are busier that they’ll eventually make the time. And God pls give me the strength not to take anyone for granted in the midst of chasing after what I want
Guess I was really worried for nothing.. shall remain hopeful for the rest of this semester!! Believing that everything happens for a reason and that all the disappointments I faced in the last few months are not without purpose
P.S. Was supposed to study today but I got nothing done.. oh dear will head out tomorrow for sure this will not be a repeat of Year 6 ~_~
Stressing out over the slightest thing & I need to be so much more than just a weakling
How can I allow myself to feel this jaded
Write about something that makes you feel uncomfortable.
Write about something that makes you worry what other people will think.
Write with black ink on a white page in a quiet room, so you can hear the nib tattooing the paper.
Write with your headphones on, bashing away at the keyboard, angrily.
Write in the speech bubbles that come off a comic book character’s head.
Write a short play about the inner turmoil that dominated your misspent youth.
Write a violent critique of a self-indulgent play about the inner-turmoil that dominated a misspent youth.
Write to try and sound like Hemingway, Saul Williams, Bukowski, EE Cummings, Adam Duritz, Rumi, Alan Watts or someone else.
Write to try and capture your own unique voice and take on things.
And if one day, there’s nothing left to write about, then that’s the exciting part.
Because the need to write, will remain, and…
