I stopped reading Naruto, or more correctly manga that is, a long, long, long time ago. However, a friend, apparently remembering that I used to worship Neji, told me to read the latest chapter of Naruto.

My heart broke all over again.Collapse )

Fuck you, Kishimoto. Fuck you.

I literally lost weight in these last two weeks, and now that I've seen the proof I believe why everybody keeps saying that. Turns out grad school is the best diet you can do! *snickers*

I'll be of to San Fransico and Los Angeles for my winter break. Couldn't stand the East Coast chill, that is. Been there, done that in Buffalo and that's enough. And nowadays Norfolk is, though sans snow, constantly around 48 deg F. San Fran, be nice and less foggy!

Then after that (now this is the most important part), I'm off to Orlando for some more heat and the sun. Disney World, wait for me!

I'm planning a New Year postcard spree, so anyone wants me to send you one, let me know.

Taking this pic accidentally from a car. Turns out to be an okay picture.

I'm never the good student.

I major in procrastination with a minor in daydreaming and time-wasting.

My friends said I might have an ADD. I don't think so. I can concentrate and write excellent papers, thank you. It's just that I get bored easily. Now I find something that is more interesting than my major. (Is it a sign that says my major isn't my passion? I don't know.

The bottom line: I still don't know what I want.

I think I need professional help.

*sigh*

Just got back from my 3-day, 10-hour-on-my feet trip from Washington, DC. What is not to love about a city that houses amazing museums?

So... who is this man?

I first knew him from my brother, who is an avid reader of his books, and became interested in his writing myself. He mostly used story to convey his message of inner peace and happiness, but which Great Teachers don't do that? At first I got the impression that he's a happy-go-lucky monk with an easy smile, or a Westerner who's simply find his way on a road that the Western world couldn't offer, but it's what enables him to reach out to people: that we are looking for happiness because we don't realize it's in us.

Here's one of my favorite quotes of his:

"For everything that has happened, thank you. For everything that will happen, alright."

This was how Jakarta's evening sky looked like yesterday. Picture taken with my BlackBerry 9700's standard camera.

On a not-so surprising front, Anderson Cooper came out.

And the best news is... my scholarship is upgraded into a full scholarship. I'm in a full ride!

Offering bowls

Lately I've been trying photography, rediscovering my love for poetry and basically decluttering my life one step at a time

And I love it.

So... in a month I have:

- got a scholarship. I'm officially a Fulbright grantee. :)
- reduced the total amount of my weekly work, and boy does that feel good.
- have been on a sentimental track, listening heartache music and reading melancholic books to mope.
- written two fics in just three days. Not that it's an achievement, but still. It's a comeback for me.

I've never been this excited as well as terrified all my life!

I went to Singapore to watch Death Cab for Cutie's Codes and Keys concert on March 7. The venue, Fort Canning Park, was a kind of challenge myself, giving it a hike before you could reach the slope where the concert was held. The crowd was partially lukewarm... and very tempered by the discipline that makes Singapore Singapore. That, except a small group of students who kept pushing its way to the front even though they came late and had tall postures. When one of them said to her friend, "Stop pushing me," I shot back, "Stop pushing yourself." Yeah, wankers. yeah.

But oh boy. Ben Gibbard. Ben frikkin' Gibbard. You are one topnotch modern poet. Or prophet. Take it as you want.
