I Go

Second week of school and I believe I am adjusting to it. I need to do well this semester. Well, I have to. The pressure is on. Need to prove my worth and I cannot afford to waste anymore time. 2 more semesters and I am done. I am not sure if I am ready for the industry and vice versa. Scary. But it helps to have a back up plan. Was thinking of taking up a degree in psychology and work towards becoming a relationship counselor. Yes, no kidding. I think I am born to heal broken hearts. And in case anyone is suffering from heartaches right now, you can call me. It will look good on my portfolio.

Been enjoying tutorials and Mandarin class every Tuesday night. Practice writing the strokes almost everyday, without fail. I am very determined, I know. I am waiting for the time where I can eventually converse in Mandarin and get the tones right. For now, I can only dream. 

Was not able to catch Yasmin Ahmad's Talentime. Pretty much regretted it. I thought that it is the least I could do as her ardent fan. But Rach could not make it on the weekends and I was back late on Monday and Tuesday. And I was being a horrible friend because I asked Rach out without knowing that A levels is in 2 weeks. Heard good reviews about the movie. It is definitely a tear jerker. The plot itself is heart-rending, and to know that this is Yasmin Ahmad's last film makes it even sadder. Bless her soul.

Chanced upon Pete Teo's blog recently. He wrote a few songs for the movie. You can have a listen here. His latest blog entry was dedicated to Yasmin Ahmad. I almost teared in the lecture hall when I read it. It was so heart felt and sincere. He wrote it as if she was there, listening to every word he had to say to her. 

"You once told me that you would cry if I were to emigrate out of frustration like so many of our best and brightest - well, now that you’ve buggered off and left us, we could do with as much help from the Almighty as possible. Tell him I’ll give up smoking if he agreed to send a few more compassionate and gutsy dreamers like you instead."

I pray that she is doing well there. 

Got to work on my WEBD analysis now. Till then, I will stay strong.

You pass him/her on the street or in the subway. He/she glances up at you momentarily, making direct eye contact in a way that seems to communicate a subtle curiosity. For a split second it makes you think… and then it’s gone.

We all have issues

I wish I could invade the minds of others. Leave a piece of my own in theirs. Make my thoughts known and force them to listen.
