So, I’m done with my morning workload and I’m waiting for lunch, working in Chinatown is not good for the waistline. I need to exercise or something.

In the mean time, Ade tagged me, so here are 6 quirky but boring things about me:

1. I’m slightly obsessed with my RSS reader, last time I checked I have 75 subscriptions, which I read whenever I’m free.

2. I eat tuna and sardines straight out of the can – best thing ever.

3. I know almost all the words to the Grease Soundtrack.

4. I collect things from the internet and put them in categorised folders on my desktop – there are seperate folders for cute animals, glam editorials, words of wisdom and arty farty things.

5. I want to live either in a beach-house or a shop-house.

6. I have a huge soft spot for english accents.

December is almost here! It’s my favourite month of the year (: Everybody I love comes home and actually has time for me. I think next month is going to be utterly exhausting but so much fun, yay!

Sometimes I feel the need to write down all that I’m thankful for (in my little diary), it’s a rather long and exhaustive list, so I feel like a lucky bitch. 

There are those things that always let us down, whatever they may be – parents, love, contact lenses – but then there are those things that are always there. And that’s where they will stay for as long as I need them, of this I am sure. 

I know someone very insecure. I said that she has every right to be that way, because she hasn’t seen the light yet. Blind faith never gets you anywhere, blaming god doesn’t give you anything, relying on sex to find love is just stupid and friends who don’t love you leaves you with nothing.

Think about it, family is there because they brought you into this world and they have some sort of an obligation to give you shelter till you can fend for yourself. Yes, they love you very much, care for you and they may be the most important people in the world to you but they are not a reflection of who you are. They are your greatest gift and they define your beginnings but that’s about it. You need to find your own way in the world, be your own person and find those who will be along with you for the ride. 

At the end of the day, no matter how much I love talking about this person, I feel sorry for her. Her need to be in the spotlight, to be the center of attention, to feel the way that she feels about things just reflects her true self and its not a pretty sight. 

People need to be fucked up by others before they can be fixed, before they can be loved. I hope she gets fixed someday.

Fanged love

The film Twilight, about a human who falls in love with a vampire is coming out in a month and there’s such huge hype surrounding it. Firstly, no real good comes out of building such great walls of hype around anything that might fail to please – movies can be so subjective. Secondly EVERYONE IS GOING TO BE IN LOVE WITH VAMPIRES once its out. This feels a little like indie going mainstream, I need to watch this movie. 

Oooo and the super hot Volchok (Cam Gigandet) from The O.C. is acting as a vampire. He does look rather vampish. Hotness.

Other then vampire news MY EXAMS ARE OVER (: (: but I’m sick. So all I’ve been doing since it ended on Monday is sleeping, what a horrible way to start the holidays. I start my internship next Monday, work work work. Life’s pretty good nowadays.

We are family

leave a comment »

I was just reading Ade’s blog, very deep post over there, got me really thinking about family. Up till I was in poly, no one really talked to me about my family.

No one asked any questions, no one discussed their own problems. But once all the truths came out, I realized that I’m not alone in this whole fucked up family business. Nearly everyone I know has some family issues, its not as uncommon as I thought it was.

I don’t know if its stupidity or naivety that drives me, but I still believe in love. I still believe in marriage, and family and growing old together and all. Deep down in the little corners of my heart, I do want to find someone to be happy with although my entire brain tells me that its impossible. 

I guess I just really want to have a family of my own, it’s what I want more then anything else. A simple, sane family with family dinners, family holidays, and other boring family things. Because I never had any of these things. I think the horrible days of my youth will actually make me a better parent and the love I never had will be precisely the love I want to sustain. 

I know its not as simple as it sounds and all, but its the one thing that I would fight for. I’m so flighty with the things that I do, often simply doing them because I have to, not because I want to. But I would fight for love.

I’m not saying that I don’t have anything, because everything I am and everything I want to be is in a little person I call grandma, but it really would be nice  if I could do for someone what my parents never did for me.
