Till next time...



This entry shall mark the end of a series on entries on love and distractions, for now. If there's any Love Story Writing Competition, do let me know! I have to admit that I kinda got carried away with my thoughts and my writings this past couple of days. One of those rare moments where I allow myself to be led by the heart rather than the brain. Am glad someone managed to snap me out of it. Perhaps this is the reason why writers like Keats die young. The pain his heart must've felt. Hahaha. Or maybe not! Whatever it is, my take on Ada Apa Dengan Cinta shall take a back seat. Till next time...

The end of one marks the start of another. I intend to dedicate my remaining waking hours to complete a 4000 word essay due on the 1st of July 2010. I'm gonna take part in an essay writing competition. I foresee spending countless hours both night and day. Yet, I foresee countless hours of joy and excitement. As always, I ask myself if it's worth it to spend so much time and effort on something that I might not even win. I'm sure there's plenty of undergrads out there with minds many times more brilliant than mine who will be fighting for the top prize!

However, I tell myself that maybe, just maybe, I should not base my brilliance on the results I'm getting for Engineering. I'll never know until I give it a shot! Haha!

All the best to me.

haha. I hope it bites me ah. This issue has been on my mind for quite a while. And from my glimpses of readings so far, it has been on MANY people's mind for a loooong time.

I had a convo with him once and he told me there's no way we can get out of this hole that we're in. I choose to believe he is wrong. I'll be posting up my thoughts along the way. At the same time, i hope I dun give up along the way. Look out for it.
