But it was a great month of November.
Now let's get started with the actual post.
Life is short, and will come to an end.
If one does not do as one wants in his heart and in his mind then one might as well not live.
A mistake is better made, but of course, thought processes are needed.
Sense is sense, but intuition beats all.
Live a life without regrets, without worries. We can be anxious, but we do not worry.
Anxious is a feeling that comes when we are jumpy over a situation. We are anxious when we are about to meet the President Obama(just an example). We are, so to speak, "worried we may have a slip of the tongue and create a bad impression". This is due to a stressor, and the stressor in this scenario is meeting an important public figure. However, if we ponder and stay with this feeling for a duration of time, our mind starts to wonder and imagine, even visualize possible scenarios of things that could have gone wrong. Now that turns into worry.
However there is a brief moment between being anxious and worrying.
It is during this time where we must pick ourselves up and lift it up.
Certain burdens need not be carried.
If, like me you believe in Christianity, the right thing to do is to lift it up to Jesus, of whom is the author and finisher of our faith.
Even if you are of other beliefs, know this: worrying is a self imposed prison. You only come out after you learn to let go. Don't imprison yourself.

from whence cometh my help.
My help cometh even from the Lord:
who hath made heavn and earth.
And he that keepeth thee will not sleep.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord himself is thy keeper:
he is thy defence upon thy right hand;
So that the sun shall not burn thee by day:
neither the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil:
yea, it is even he that shall keep thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out, and thy coming in:
from this time forth and for evermore.
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills:
from whence cometh my help.

Hope that one day i can change this blog into one which i enjoy, and which people would enjoy coming to. Not just something simple and nice. Something designed personally, and unique.
But for now,
Everything in life is a learning process.
So glad that my friend introduced me to a new book called Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Experimenting with the possible future route that humans may take forsaking a religion for science, evolution and a dictator-like-God, caste systems become prevalent to society to keep the world a balanced place for the people on the top of the balance to enjoy. However, a savage, someone untouched from a rural area proceeds to find his life changed when he enters the brave new world located half way across the world, to find technology at its finest, yet humans, though more intelligent, still have shortcomings.
Changed my mind on certain things this book does. Reminded me of how important it is to have right values, and to know something through and true.
Good book to read, I highly recommend it.

hanging around and floating with you
not within control and not with respect-
use it well or you will regret.
For all is within its game
Mindset, control, procrastinate oh put it on hold,
Nothing seems to large till at the end
And at the end one sobs, no longer able to play, pretend.
Strict rules are freedom, or are strict rules inconvenience?
Time moves within its own desserts,
Life is gone like a spoonful of cereal fed by parents,
down the throat and abyss - or out and into fireworks.

An invite, a greeting with a push A struggle to adapt, but alas all done was for the better,
and the better an old wine is till the unfermented grapes drown
For like two kittens, purrs of one accord Claws marked with same scratches
The left paw and the right paw of them Both serve their master, walking him, waking him
A messala and a Judah ben hur Breaking down after those five years But really messala was not knowing That the saved ben hur forgave him.

no grass patch could hold it there
but a dandelion petals it caught himself
with help of a breeze in the air
breeze flew feathers, many leaves
the feather was stark red among the greens
lucky it caught in a dandelion,
and rub on the chin be not odd but even.
the rub, it went, yes it went through,
the results undisclosed, unknown.
if only if only the blue bird sighs,
if only he could make the breeze bigger.
ps: if only, the breeze was bigger he said,
little he knew 'bout the whirlwind ahead.

but before, a minute, the sun was pepper.
Awaiting, a goal, thrust by thrust forward
Upon reaching, twas stormy gale.
Hobby picked, left with a sigh,
Awaiting nightingale's reply
A moan, soft whisper, touched the heart,
apologies breaks the house of cards.
Point of no return, to which one gallops,
Revelation, shocking, Yes! A shocking sight.
Bewilderment kept underneath
Wails belong to the bathroom inn.
To turn, to change or to pretend
Life's first road- the hardest bend,
Decisions made, do not regret,
Always push through the needle - thy thread.
this poem was written especially for a person that is at a new juncture in life, and knows not what is ahead.
I wrote this about my entrance into NYP SIDM motion graphics, and it was a tough period of my life where I felt stupid, retarded, and I felt that what was needed most in my life was to cry. I just wanted to cry. But as you read the poem you should have known what I decided to do is to not regret my decision but just make the decision I feel is best for me and that is to push the thread into the needle. How hard it may be, how difficult and how impossible and daunting the task to face, but to do it because it is better to push another thread into a needle than to settle for a color you do not want on your garment, well, on your garment.
Why I named it blind wait was because I didnt know what to expect from it, so its like a blind wait, and yes, it is a redundant wait because all waits are blind, we never know what will come from what we expect.

There are bad people.
There are good people.
But everyone has the same start, no?
Yes, we all start as a baby. That would be the similarity.
When I was younger, I used to play a game called Maple Story. In that game, you will be able to customize your character at the beginning. In doing so, you can make your avatar look like yourself.
Shortly after that, you come to a screen where it gives you a table, showing you data related to your skills in the game. Measured by skill points, every aspect important to the game will contain skill points. Your base skill points will vary from 4-12.
The tally of points from all the aspects will be about the same.
In this world, not everyone is the same.
Some are born to this world more unfortunate than others.
Some are more fortunate.
But how do we measure the level of "fortunate"-ness?
What is it in relative to?
It is in relativity to our perspective.
Growing up, I knew I did not have a perfect family. It was broken.
Thus, to me, any family that is stuck close together, that can joke and have fun together, that care for one another, is fortunate.
As you can see, my definition of fortunate may differ.
A baby born into a rich family, but growing up, found few cared for him, may describe fortunate as one with many close friends.
However, one with many close friends, but fall sick often, may find those with perfect health fortunate.
I could go around with many examples.
There will always be an "Achilles heel", as many call it.
I prefer a biblical example.
There will always be a "Jacob's socket" or a "Paul's thorn in the flesh", but how we overcome it, now that's a story.
If you overcome, tell that to your future kid.
PS: I need to come up with better blog post titles.

Captivity's reign shambles on sand.
Now to unlock a pandora of souls
Winters gone, closed door of doom
Look ahead, what spring might bring,
Lovely cheerful offering.
No regrets, it is goodbye!
No more crying, can't hear a sigh.
Birds fly out of the window blue
Returning with a peekaboo.
Have recently been watching anime(I'm supposed to be studying) and I have been thinking a lot(as usual) lately.
What does it mean to be married? What does it mean to be together?
So. That is what I have been thinking about.
Then I realized, I am certainly certainly not ready for one.
Being in a relationship with a person of the opposite gender means that you have genuine care and concern for the person. You must truly care about the person, and you feel obliged to care for the person.
Study has shown that after the first year of the relationship, what used to be passionate love will turn into emotional love, and then into emotional attachment.
Thus, for two to become one, they must not just like each other. Rather, they must have a desire to want to be together with the other person for a lifetime.
Bearing with the other's shortcomings, they must learn to live life with the other with utmost patience. Whoever one chooses as his or her partner must be one who is able to communicate and connect, without a single word of conversation.
The greatest friendship, of which two may sit, against a bench, and feel at ease just breathing with the other, without having a word spoken, yet know that the presence is more than enough, for the hearts have already been bonded, just through what both has gone through together.

Which would only happen on nights where i am not gaming, and not studying, and definitely not sleeping.
Thus far, i realize that i need to blog constantly, because I want to keep at least a small flair for writing. That would be beneficial towards my adequate command of english, and also relieving myself from stressful examinations. Games are good, but they are not the best.
I guess i could analyze poems or quotes by socrates but nobody would be interested, and I guess i could analyze books like ecclesiastes or fahrenheit 451 chapter by chapter too.
I will see how it goes, and I will try and blog more often.
I am typing this because similar to Blacklightattack(some guy I admire), I am actually trying to set this blog in the direction for more views by random people that care. So I would want to be posting content that would be of a certain genre, at least 3/4 of the time.
Thus far, thank you for reading whoever you are.
If you are a blogwalker, do ctrl + D my blog! Would appreciate if you rss or follow too(provided you enjoy).
Will be posting as much quality content as possible.
As for now, a reminder would be sweet:
No day remembered as like Crispian's Day
but globalization has had some zest.
No warrior fought can beat the rest
for innnovation puts man to the test.

This poem was created on 28 May, but i don't think i placed it on this blog yet.
I have no idea what it is about.
Update: I think I just might know.
The most beautiful things in life that we love, those things are the things we dont cherish, those things are those things we choose to destroy so we can "own" what we admire, we can have to ourselves what we find pleasing to ourselves.

Where can you find mickey mouse on your body?
Why was the cook arrested?
Why do you go to bed?
What did the traffic light say to the lamp post?
A tree was chopped down for firewood. When it was placed in the furnace, the fire was green. Why?
Why are fishes smart?
What did one plate say to another?
What happens when you lift the lighter above your shoulder?
What happens when you lift a chicken from the ground up to your knee slowly?
Because he had nine lies(lives).
He was beating up eggs.
Because the bed can't come to you.
Don't look, I'm changing.
It was an evergreen tree.
They travel in schools.
Lunch is on ME.
It becomes a highlighter.
It becomes chicken rice(rise).
This is Shrek the sheep. He became famous several years ago when he was found after hiding out in caves for six years. Of course, during this time his fleece grew without anyone there to shorn (shave) it. When he was finally found and shaved, his fleece weighed an amazing sixty pounds. Most sheep have a fleece weighing just under ten pounds, with the exception usually reaching fifteen pounds, maximum. For six years, Shrek carried six times the regular weight of his fleece. Simply because he was away from his shepherd.
This reminds me of John 10 when Jesus compares Himself to a shepherd, and His followers are His sheep. Maybe it’s a stretch, but I think Shrek is much like a person who knows Jesus Christ but has wandered. If we avoid Christ’s constant refining of our character, we’re going to accumulate extra weight in this world—a weight we don’t have to bear.
When Shrek was found, a professional sheep shearer took care of Shrek’s fleece in twenty-eight minutes. Shrek’s sixty pound fleece was finally removed. All it took was coming home to his shepherd.
I believe Christ can lift the burdens we carry, if only we stop hiding. He can shave off our ‘fleece’—that is, our self-imposed burdens brought about by wandering from our Good Shepherd.
“Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

And I noticed something very subtle, but very true.
I changed the way I dress for school.
When I was in NYP SIDM, which is the school of digital media, all was funky and cool.
I dressed (rather)stylishly whenever I go to school.
But when I went to another course, an IT course, I changed. I wore slipper shorts and t-shirts, which would have been a no-no to me last year.
Why the sudden change?
Because when I am a IT student, I am no longer a graphic design student. I lose my passion for creativity. I became a rectangular box without its edges. An aluminium phone suitable for one handed typing.
Which shouldn't be the case.
I should be like a Sony Xperia Phone, beautiful, good to behold.
But what caused me to dress with such sloppiness?
In SIT(School of IT), the modules touched on are programming, law, math, wed design, and psychology.
However in Digital Media School, We had to crack our brain for animation ideas, story boarding techniques, drawing beautifully with good shading in terms of gradient, painting.
We had to think funkily.
As compared to thinking logically.
And when you think about it logically,
it is not that non media or non design students have no fashion sense,
it is that they have been hard wired through school to dress logically.
Thus, only those who dress to impress, or dress to maintain a certain perception, would dress up.
However, media and design students will dress up because, hey, why not.
Dressing nice, will make me feel nice. When I feel nice, my life will be nice.
Dress logically. No one bothers, who shall judge? Whoever judges will be judged. And by all.
Thus, what point am i trying to make here?
That it is not to blame a person for his change in behavior if there is a change in the setting of the culture of the environment he is in.
Good day to you.
There aint no dance, What is a ball? I counted leaves on the drawing floor-
till the end of time, he struts,
A blank page keeps no lover apart
A quiet lap across the dam, A swim back through the tunnel. Skiing past trees in winter, Toiling hard in summer.
not very beautiful, but im lazy to polish...

Than wade in romance,
'Cause I can never find the courage to ask her to dinner, or even to dance

I really need to get back to being who I can be, not who I am comfortable being.
Chiong! Busy with two assingments but I should have no problems finishing them. All the best to me.
Besides, have I told you bout my great love for LUCIDA GRANDE?

At the current moment, it is 152 am! and I just rushed finish a 2 page article for my project, which is due tomorrow! So close! Oh wells, not my fault! Haha, I had to do it solo when it is a pair work. Well, it's ok. Nobody will judge me, right? :D
So yesterday I received my programming results, and thank God, it improved from 57.5% to 77.7%! Which means one more mark to A... but it's ok! Learning! Takes time man! I must practice and practice and practice!
However, more than all these, more than my constant blabbering about html and css, java, I must come to a place where reading the word of God is easy. I do not fathom why I find it so hard, but I begin to feel it. It is like, eating, but somehow as I eat I don't feel like eating. Which isn't good.
So! I shall start reading and make it a commitment. Been reading acts, and getting the connect group to read it too. Hope they do! Really wanna strengthen them this season, but not sure how... well i guess i should pray! Haha!

Before all days
You knew me
Formed in Your image
Made in Your likeness
You loved me
the truth of Your promise
The power of Your mercy
the love of Your grace
oh of me
moving in the depths of me
in the power of Your name
in the promise of faith
in the love of a God
Jesus, my Savior
I believe, I believe
to move into the ocean
with Your authority
given to me
No matter what happens
Here I am standing
on the hope of Your Word
promised to me

Wheeeeee. <3 <3 <3

This is a season to pray like never before.
Pray and read the word, nothing better can you do, than pray and read the word.

Now even up to this point I still have no idea whether he was joking or serious. To which I stared at him angrily and decided, well I should just order. I then ask which he recommend, of which he chose one of the more pricey ones. I bought it nonetheless.
The point here is not what burger I bought in the end, but how I went about dealing with the situation. Had I been in a bad mood, I really wonder how I will react! Would I have behaved in a Christ like manner? Maybe not. Or maybe I have already demonstrated it when I restrained myself.
Main point is, when we are who we are, students, bosses, blue collar worker, management executive, market analyst, janitor, lecturer, civil servant, insurance agent, it is easy for us to be Christ like. But when we are customers and in a society where lines such as "the customer is always right" exists, many times we get easily frustrated and dissatisfied, even at the littlest of things.
However right now, I beseech you brethren, to always remain Christ like even at moments when you are king(or you think you are). For that would be a barometer for your Christlikeness.
Have a nice day.
