everytime i think there’s smtg wrong with me, doctors say there isn’t. suppose the only way is to bear with it and pretend that there’s nothing wrong. live life fully with no regrets until… *bends little finger*. can’t be afraid of death after all.
my wishes upon tonight’s pondering, made clearer by today’s events: 1) to always have the bravery to say the things i need to. 2) to always have a reason to wake up to in the morning.
should i depart in what seems too soon, do not be alarmed or feel sorry. trust in a higher power that it was my time. trust that i had a fulfilling life.
you don’t need to know everything I’m going through, you don’t need to fix everything that’s wrong. you can just stand beside me, a hand on my shoulder, to let me know that you care, and you’re there no matter what, and that’s all I could ever need.
at this point in time, i can’t promise forever. we can have for now, at least. but maybe we’ll grow to fit each other better. and maybe one day i can say forever and always.

all she ever wants to do is live, and experience all that life has to offer.
the further you try to run, the faster things catch up to you. 😢
left a little broken. no point living in that state.
thoughts of you invading my every living moment… I want to let you go, but I can’t seem to. could you please, please sign the release letter? put me out of my misery.

“Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.” And it all begins with a thought. Oh gosh…
My teacher once told the class that he could not achieve anything great in one particular area because he had too many hobbies. He actually advised to pick one, master and excel at it. Hmm…

THE MEASURE OF A MAN - Anonymous Not - How did he die? But - How did he live? Not - What did he gain? But - What did he give? These are the things that measure the worth Of a man as a man, regardless of birth. Not - What was his station? But - had he a heart? And - How did he play his God-given part? Was he ever ready with a word of good cheer? To bring back a smile, to banish a...
bookstore/library, cold rainy night, minimal people, clean carpets. best thing ever. <need to insert picture that represents this all here>
Dare to live. [[MORE]] That’s the best advice I think I could give anyone. Living outside of home, out of where I had lived my entire life, that’s when I feel like I’ve lived and learnt the most. When you have been living a comfortable life, and stayed sheltered in your house most of the time, the few places you learn things are from books and television (and of course the...
Of photography and life
Back from my Sem3 site visit to Singapore. Perhaps the most inspiring thing of the trip was meeting this lady named Georgina Chin. Somehow, by pure chance our paths crossed at Bukit Brown, and she stopped to see and talk to the 3 of us. The next thing you know, she was asking asking about camera lenses and then she opened her car boot and low and behold a super huge monster lens was sitting there....
it’s all a lie. one so beautiful that you actually bought it.
It’s easier to run away when you’re nobody’s loved one. easier to be yourself when you’ve escaped from the past.
Closer to my dreams than ever before
You know what you want. It may not be concrete, but it’s there, and it’s greater than yourself. You know that’s where you have an edge. You just have to remember, follow your gut, stick with it. It’s what made you you, way back to your earliest memories. Don’t forget it. Never forget it.
what if I stopped? what if I said I wanted to be a journalist. what if I said I wanted to travel to the harshest places in the world and help the people there? what if I said I could make a difference? what would you say?
If you knew what the world really is today, you wouldn’t want to live in it. or maybe you’d want to change it.

Few words from our lecturers today that I just have to get down. After today’s “Tea for Two” submission, they noted how our work was mostly skin and form and very visual. Turns out we’ve been focusing too much on the wrong thing. Architecture is more about the space within. You have to be there to experience it, and it can’t be experienced from a mere photograph. They...
Live simply, live happy, live green. Life is complicated enough.
sometimes, all you need are a few laughs to feel lighter, and all your “problems” don’t seem so big anymore.
I think I’m doing something wrong. I keep coming back to this same place.
did something drastic. can’t believe I did it, but glad I did. let’s just say Mulan made it look much easier and quicker than it actually is. something to cross off my bucketlist!
life is never perfect. never has been, never will be. *stares at broken cracks*
sometimes, when life throws you fast, hard balls too strong to handle, all you can do is ask,”WHYYYYY?!!?!!!!” DDDDxxxx
I wonder if it’s even possible to live in a world where nobody loses. coz right now, it feels like my one comfortable life is at the expense of the hundreds, if not thousands of suffering souls.
The number of A’s you score in tests does not determine your future. But it does give you an idea of what you could be capable of.
