Feb 28, 2011 Me, Myself & I
Life is a river of chaos and an ocean of madness.
You know, every time I
try to blog open up a new canvas to splash my incandescent thoughts into comprehensible words, they almost always end up being thrashed away and deprived of any recognition, before I realise that it’s getting late and that I probably needed to rest my head down for the night.
Unfortunately, it’s been that way for most nights and as a result, this blog seems blighted with a hiatus of some sort.
It wasn’t helped that I was being recalled for my National Service (NS) duty for half a month, as well as recursively giving the office a visit to soothen the chaos there.
My NS Stint was a very welcomed one and despite being physically exhaustive, I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions with the boys, if compared to the mentally exhaustive baggages at work.
NS wasn’t that bad after all, and I actually feel like I’ve just returned from an overdue holiday and it feels as if I’m recharged like a brand new me.
So, as you’d have already found out, it’s not just the ‘me’ inside that’s feeling brand new, but this blog’s cosmetics too!
Just for the records, ‘Oel Ngati Kameie‘ is Navi language for ‘I See You’, and in case you didn’t knew, I’m a rabid Avatar fan and am guilty as judged.
Or is the term guilty as charged? Bah, penalise me..
It’s 2011, and we’re nearing the end of February already, but why does it seem so fast?
Like it was only yesterday that I met new faces, found old friends and lost dear ones, of which I dare say pretty much summed up my 2010 for me.
Indeed if there was only one word for me to describe 2010, it’d have to be ‘lost chances’ — okay, bite me, so what if they are two words?
Compared to 2009, where I started to dive into almost every subject that I came across, 2010 was a year where I delved ignorantly head first, subscribing to a mixture of much anguish and memorable joys.
It was a year where I learnt to live for today, today and today.
I was determined to not go into tomorrow with a ‘what-if’ or a ‘if-only’ in my head.
2010 was a year where I invested heavily, both financially and emotionally, a phase where I crashed and burned continuously, and a period where I traded archaic naiveness with a broken heart, but unlike with broken bones, trudgingly one is still able to meander the course of life!
And I nearly lost everything as I lost my footing, but that’s just me being overly dramatic of my fortunes then, or was it misfortune?
Anyways, I loved 2010 for being what it’s been and as I clutch on dearly onto my bundle of blemished and blessed experiences, I crave for what 2011 may offer me.
Be it for better or worse, indeed noone knows what the future will bring, but one thing for sure, if one paddles not, then the current decides the fate.
It’s a river of chaos and an ocean of madness, but everything will be alright.
Just don’t stop paddling.
Feb 3, 2011 Overheard
It’s the Lunar New Year all over again, but its the year of the Rabbit this time around and here’s to wishing you well with lots of fortune and happiness.
A rabbit is calm yet vigilant, withdrawn yet enjoys good company, and though non confrontational is wholly keen and intellectual.
Still it’s deemed to be fragile, sneaky and obsessive at times.
I still think horoscopes and astrology are fun to muse at, and if anything is to go by, the year of the Rabbit is expectedly classy, sophisticated and artistic.
Indeed it is one of the most stylistic creatures of the Chinese animal sign but what is style without substance right?
Lest we forget the unfortunate and the handicapped ones while we share the joy, because everyone deserves their fair share of joy.
The less able they are, then the more deserving they shall be.
Happy new year, and care and share please.
