Hearts and Letters

I’ve been rummaging through my stuff earlier this day and i happened to come across some letters i have received and failed to give. And it made me think, when was the last time I received a letter? I realized i missed the feeling. Because of the advancement of our world, we rarely receive letters today (informal). And not that i’m comparing, I just want to state some benefits/ pros/ likeable things about long-lost letters.

 

1. Paper love

       Who wouldn’t miss those cute stationaries and the quotations inside them. Pick a category and we have them. Friendship? Love? Gratitude? Sorry? And that oh so lovely scent of papers. Choosing the style and design of your paper is just so wonderful^^

 

2. Cursive or Printed?

       Penmanship matters. I know, I know. I don’t write very well but hey! I wrote words too. And what is a letter without your signature handwriting?

 

3. Effort

     How should i start it? I think it’s too corny. How will I give this?….. Receiving a letter just makes me feel special, you could really see that the person exerted time and effort to make sure you receive it and for you to somehow like the message. Letters usually come from the heart.

 

4. You don’t get lonely on a Valentine’s day

       At least I received a letter:)))

 

5. Relieves stress

      You actually get to laugh about your corny punchlines and the innocent sweetness of your youth.

6. You could always relate to Blues Clues.

      We just got a letter, we just got a letter……lalalala

Almost doesn’t count

 Let me bring you back to some tear-jerking moments.That moment when you want to shave your hair off in frustration. That moment when all you can do is mope.

1. When positive should have been negative

        You stayed up all night, memorized the overly long formula, your callous had bore another callous from practicing the solution. Exam day came, you passed your paper with your head held high. Results came, you are full of anticipation, then suddenly you see that small red circle

 

2. You didn’t hold on to the threshold.

        Your score:39/60. And the passing score is…… 40!

 

3. We could have had it all

       That really sad reality your so -called everlasting love actually burned itself out. Oh the tragedy. May also be that moment when you decided to give it a try than he decides he’s tried enough. Hmmmm.

 

4. I forgot

        I’m gonna ace this test. I’m gonna wow the audience. Then suddenly, the answer/ line decided to decide he’s too shy to come out. May also be called the tip of the tongue phenomenon in some instances. Come on, Come on.

 

5. I saw it first

        So you had my eyes for this book/ shoes etc., then you decide to leave it first because you haven’t  really decided if its necessary or not. And when you convinced yourself it was necessary. You came back for it only to see it waving goodbye. Of course there are other costumers. Sometimes it pays to be impulsive.haha

 

6. I’d walk a thousand miles.

        You skipped breakfast. Combed your hair on the way, took the stairs two steps at a time. You stop a minute to breathe then run again. Fortunately, you are too early for the next flight/ batch/ shuttle.

 

Sometimes life’s just too unfair. But HAHA. It’s just so funny to look back at some of our frustrations.

More ways than one

 Flowers, chocolates,free food and gifts, Oh hello Valentines’! It’s nice to look at people doing things for their loved ones, be it their other half, friends or parents. This Valentine’s, I don’t want to limit “love” to appreciating and loving the ones you love. Let’s start with the things some of us ridiculously love.

1. Chocolate

        Now this is literally dark temptation. I would give up any food for chocolate. The way it melts in your mouth at the first bite.Hmmm, Just plain heaven. The best excuse for eating chocolate everyday? Stress. Or thinking you’re stressed.

2. Coffee

       I can’t imagine how others function without coffee. Seriously? You’re missing half of your life.

3. Fictional Characters

        So what if he lives a thousand miles away? We’re so close I could literally think of what he is thinking now. Caution: Don’t look for them in real life, you’ll end up breaking your heart ( especially boys). And the villains, gosh, who wouldn’t love them? That moment you want to wipe off that smirk on his face. That sarcastic smile. And that oh-so broken interior. And sometimes they’re just so evil you could hate them for life.

4.Others combing your hair.

         I don’t know where the magic lies but the feel of others hands on my hair, well, I just can’t help but sigh. Maybe that’s how cats feel when they’re being stroked.

5. I did 5 projects in one day!

         I’m so proud of myself. Yep. This is where you scream your lungs out after cramming for 8 hours because your requirements are due the next day. This is just so fulfilling.

6. Talking with kids–and sometimes messing with them

         Kids, they’ve got the most brilliant of answers. Ridiculous but some really makes sense. And when you mess with them, you can’t help but be brought to your childhood. 

7. Singing in the bathroom

          This is our turf. I really don’t know what it is about bathrooms that makes me a diva. 

 

 

Surely not laziness

Should I call it laziness if instead of starting my syllabus, I ponder on how I shall start it?

Should it be called laziness if I make a schedule of work to do yet still do it at the same time?

Should it be called laziness if I have not watched mythological films because I want to conserve electricity?

Should it be called laziness if I really want to start my work but my mind refuses to cooperate?

Should I call it laziness if instead of thinking ideas, I Googled? (that takes time too)

Should I call defending my laziness, a laziness too?
