Some Jokes...

I was browsing through the Neowin forums and reading some jokes when I came across some I really like =P. All credits goes to Neowin Forums.

Chicken Sandwiches:
A little boy and a little girl attended the same school and became friends.

Every day they would sit together to eat their lunch.They discovered that they both brought chicken sandwiches every day!This went on all through the fourth and fifth grades, until one day he noticed that her sandwich wasn't a chicken sandwich.

He said, "Hey, how come you're not eating chicken, don't you like it anymore?"

She said "I love it but I have to stop eating it.""Why?" he asked. She pointed to her lap and said "Cause I'm starting to grow little feathers down there!"

"Let me see" he said. "Okay" and she pulled up her skirt. He looked and said, "That's right. You are! Better not eat any more chicken."

He kept eating his chicken sandwiches until one day he brought peanut butter.

He said to the little girl, "I have to stop eating chicken sandwiches,I'm starting to get feathers down there too!"

She asked if she could look, so he pulled down his pants for her.

She said, "Oh, my God, it's too late for you! You've already got the neck and the gizzards."

Imagine That:

This guy was watching TV as his wife was out cutting the grass during the hot summer. He finally worked up the energy to go out and ask his wife what was for supper.

Well, his missus was quite irritated about him sitting in the air conditioned house all day while she did all the work, so she scolded him. “I can’t believe you’re asking me about supper right now! Imagine I’m out of town, go inside and figure dinner out yourself.”

So he went back in the house and fixed himself a big steak, with potatoes, garlic bread and tall glass of iced tea.

The wife finally walked in about the time he was finishing up and asked him, “You fixed something to eat? So where is mine?”

“Huh? I thought you were out of town.”

Punctuation Is Powerful:



As you can see, we need each other! =P

Also, I love this post by one of the members, Abhishek Kapoor:
"Apparently, women need to feel loved to have sex and men need to have sex to feel loved, so the basic act of continuing the species requires a lie from one of you."

=)

School's been a little more busy than I expected so far, and I haven't really had much time for myself, or anyone else for that matter =(.

NUS's pretty fun in the sense that there're quite a lot of events happening (if you bother to find out). I've been to some of them already and it's really good, although I can't seem to enjoy myself fully when there's still schoolwork to be done. I guess I still need time to build up my stamina for studying again, since I haven't really studied for the past 2/3 years or so. It's going to be an uphill battle, but it has to be fought anyway.

Staying at PGP is quite fun, but I really miss my family =(. It's like army all over again, only seeing my loved ones on weekends. Sigh. I think as we grow older, we'll drift further away due to other commitments, until a point in time that you've achieved what you want to. By then, it may sometimes be too late. I hope it wouldn't be the case for me. I'd love to take my parents for a holiday, and support them once I start working. It's time to return the favour =).

Most of my closer friends are now either working, or studying. As I grow up I feel that time is getting increasingly short, or maybe I'm running slower each day.

"My father always used to say that when you die, if you've got five real friends, then you've had a great life." - Lee Iacocca

It's quite true actually =). People walk in and out of your life, sometimes they remember you, sometimes they don't. Sometimes you remember them, sometimes you don't.

Also, I'm going to work out my expenses later on, so I can plan how much to save per week and so on.

I bought Electrico's We Satellites recently, and I love it! Below are the lyrics for Save Our Souls:

A man looks at his son with a sad look upon his face
He doesn’t cry

He sits there on the street within his eyes they’re showing you
The reason why

Where have you gone? Gone away, leaving us in the same tragedy
Won’t you stay? I don’t know where to go...
Please say to god we don’t know where to go to save our souls

Hope falls from the sky on iron wings, But it don’t ever hit the ground
People scatter / scramble everywhere
But all they see is the barrel of a gun


It's been 3 years and 1 month since I got together with my lovely Geri =)! I miss you =).

It's 5.20AM and I'm still awake. I got home around 3.30AM, after NUS Jam & Hop, Pandemonium. It was pretty fun overall, although the crowd was not really there =(. It'd be nice to see more people supporting the local bands, especially the less popular ones. Nonetheless, I had a good time watching the various performances =)! All the bands were great! After that was some music (which wasn't really that awesome) and dance.

Anyway, sometimes I really think I'm screwed up. I can't seem to view things the way most people do, for whatever reason I don't know. Maybe I've screwed up ethics. To hold on to your beliefs is indeed a difficult thing.

First Week Of School, Etc.

First week of school is over! Still need to get used to it, studying sucks =(.

Two of my closest friends are currently recovering from their broken relationships. It kind of sucks when you can't really help them, as it's their own battle to fight. All you can do is listen to them, and try to empathize with them. Some of you are probably thinking, "Just stop whining and get over it." and I fully agree. However, things are often easier said than done.

Anyway, I hope they find their way out of their hell soon =). Time heals everything, definitely. Sometimes when you cling on to the past, you lose sight of the wonder in front of you. You already know it, why carry on this way?

Had a good sleep last night! =) Anyway, today was filled with lectures, and my brain's still warming up. Haha, although I've taken Engineering Mathematics before, what I'm learning now feels familiar yet unknown at the same time. Sigh. It's like re-learning everything all over again. Hopefully I can catch up!

I miss home already =(.

First Night In PGP

Hello all, today is officially the first night that I'm sleeping over at my residence, Prince George Park. It's a pretty small room, but I've made it cosy to my liking already =P. Of course, it's not as big as the rooms in some of the halls, but nevertheless, here's some pictures:












A very sweet handmade gift from dearest Geri!

Turbulence

I wish I could write out in words exactly how I feel, but sadly, there's a severe limitation to using language as a form of expression, and some feelings just have no words as equals. Moreover, I feel really uncomfortable blogging about certain personal things.

I had a really tiring week as it was the Freshmen Orientation Week, but nevertheless, I think it was all worth it! I never thought that I'd be enjoying it as much as I am at the end of it, considering how pessimistic I am. I'm thankful to have met certain people, and hopefully, great friendships can come out of it all =)!

Throughout the FOW I realised many things about myself I didn't know previously, probably due to suddenly interacting with strangers again, or maybe because the idle mind is truly the devil's workshop. I realised that the truth is I've been affected/changed by things I thought wouldn't affect me, that the effects of various things get more and more pronounced as time goes by. I realised that I'm not as strong as I thought I am, that I'm still a coward within.

Some things are better left ignored, but the truth is when you ignore it knowingly you never truly do. Ignorance is bliss, but ignoring isn't. It comes back to haunt you, and sometimes when you're feeling happy it just comes back to bring you down, as though you're forever indebted to it. Maybe it's just me, it probably boils down to me being unable to forgive myself, or sometimes others. I wish I could but I'm just a human.

I realised that perhaps a part of me is still desperately trying to find out who I really am, and at the same time, desperately longing for certain things in the past. I've never felt like I belong to this place, so I crack jokes, and try to lighten things up all the time, because that's probably the only way I know. Everyone needs a little magic, a little bit of light(ness) in their lives. I hate the fact that everything's so planned, so scheduled, and so routined. I hate it but yet I've submitted myself to it as well, because it's the only way I know of. Reach towards the things you hate the most, and maybe you might find a way out someday.

Suddenly, it didn't matter how well I did in my poly, or my numerous other academic achievements. They suddenly don't matter at all.

I miss my sister, I miss my parents being together, I miss my younger self when I didn't have to worry about a single thing, and I wish that some things didn't turn out the way they did. It took me years to finally realise all these. When I turn around I still see myself from years ago, desperately trying to find a way out of everything. And today, when I looked in the mirror, I saw him again, still desperately trying to find a way out of everything.

Anyway, it's just a random rant, and to end this post, here are some pictures of my group, STRENGTH, during the FOW! Also, to my dearest Geri, sorry for not spending as much time you and I would've liked during the week, I miss you =)!
