My hand shook hard when he said "You'll lose everything on the hard drive". This was the real heart break. My heart literally broke into two and I could feel sorrow oozing out slowly from my arteries and disappointment spurting through my veins. It felt like I had just been informed of someone's death. Or that my result was out and I had dropped out of my grade class.
Happy New Year beautiful people of LaLa Land. Yes, I know this is coming late as it is already nine days into the new year - I might have started this post a year ago and failed to complete it (these a year ago jokes really must stop lol) . I'd blame my upcoming school… Continue reading 2017 – The Year of Learning and Relearning
This is a three in one article and it might be lengthy, kindly permit me. The fact that I have not written in a while is not because there was nothing to write about but because I have truly been busy. Very busy. (Ps: I started the birthday writeup on the 30th of October and… Continue reading Things Fall Apart To Fall Into Place
When I was a kid, one of the first lessons I learnt from experience and on my own was that something would always go wrong.

"The one good thing about losing everything is that you have nothing else to lose" - Preshylala I've always wanted to have a quote attributed to me and I think I've finally found the right one. I can see philosophy or history students a thousand years from now trying to discern what this smart ancient… Continue reading The Right Move
Dear Mr DreamKeeper, Shouldn't we get over our fears as time goes on? Isn't time supposed to heal all wounds and clean all tears? The fear of the dark and the fear of standing in front of crowds. The fear of enclosed places and the fear of heights. The fear of dying by suffocation or… Continue reading Letter to the DreamKeeper
When I think of how far I've come, sometimes I get scared it's just a dream. Scared I'll wake up back in Shaggy on the night of the Wolves. Wake up on the day of the beginning of the end glad I can now change history and fix my mistakes; or worse, wake up after… Continue reading 99 wrongs
Looking at this big Law of Contract textbook, I cant help but wonder why Law has to be so hard. I wish the lecturers would just play scenes of "Suits" or "How to get away with murder" on that never-gonna-be-used projector in class. Okay I know that's too big a dream. How about acting out… Continue reading Give It Up!!!
Do you remember those times when you were younger and scared of the dark? Your first day at a new school wondering if you'd ever fit in or make friends? Your first moment before a crowd wishing the ground would open and swallow you up? Oh! Or when you broke your mom's favourite vase and… Continue reading It doesn’t really matter
