I cannot forget what I cannot forgive
How much hotter can it get in this bloody country?
Pretty damn, considering the heat wave. Today I stayed a full hour in Harle's aircon classroom just to escape the sun. (Soak up the sun? YOU try soaking up the sun at this temperature. See if you don't burn to a total crisp.)
And then I went to a totally nerve-wracking interview with the uber vice-dean. *burinkuu* The woman is SCARY. People, if you have intents to graduate, befriend her. She's creepy but it's worth it.
And now, a poem stolen off someone else's blog:
A POEM FOR A SINGLE PERSON:
Single means you have the time to grow
and be the person you want to be.
Single gives you space to grow...
Sometimes, it is harder to grow
when you are too close to someone.
Trees are planted far apart
so they can spread their branches
and become strong as they mature...
Single means learning to live by yourself.
However, that is no more dificult
than learning to live with somebody else.
Single means freedom.
You are free
to spend a week's vacation on the beach,
to take computer courses,
to work late on an interesting project,
to spend the day in bed with a good book
or simply with a person who has read one...
Single means learning not to need a man/woman
to make your life meaningful
but learning to live with a man/woman
because you want to be with him/her.
Single means that sometimes you will wonder
why you will bite your lip and feel wistful
and wonder if marriage is better...
Ironically, yet quite happily,
single is feeling good
about being in control of your life.
It is liking and respecting
who you are and why you are.
Single is realizing that being married
is not necessarily better,
it is merely different...
Single means that there could be
something wonderful around the corner
and you can take advantage of it.
Single means you are free to love again...
And I echo his reaction:
will you catch me when I fall? :: |
