TO ONE & ALL, SMTHING TO CHEER U GUYS UP!
Thursday, May 11, 2006
oh yes. i forgot to add.there's so much angst in the air.i guess sg air is not fresh enough for inhalation. i suggest for the next general elections, the mps should promise the planting of more trees. then you would probably see this whole forest of angsana trees outside your window and you can occasionally shoot crows and have them for supper? haha. stop laughing. i know it's not funny.
whatever it is.
come on people. cheer up. smile up. you cant solve problems by being depressed.
it's like maths. you cant write a big fat 'depressed' word on your foolscp just because you cant solve maths problems. if we could do that, i dont think the bookshop would be making much money because nobody needs that many pens already.
& please. you are not buttons. you cant be pressed.. what more being depressed. dont be something you cannot be. hello buttons? what a lousy object. have high higher standards.. be a diamond? whoohoo. hard, sexy and they shine too after being cut.
It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled
or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly;
who errs and comes short again and again;
who knows great enthusiasms,the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,
and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while DARING GREATLY
so that his place shall never be with those timid souls
who know neither victory or defeat.
i forgot where i got that from.
but hey whoever that's reading this blog
keep on keeping on!!
take care X)
taken frm my sis's blog, w/o permission, all rights reserved, take the lefts.
my life has been reduced to the sad state of burning used tissues in the middle of the nite...
now the livin room stinks....
i have test test test.... i think my pen pal thinks tt i've most probably forgotten abt her already. sheesh... i better send her her bday prezzie on time.
we have this very big ambition of living for others...
but u noe e truth is that we nvr do, deep inside we just live for ourselves & ourselves only...
i'm srry i'm a cynic & a atheist, live with it babies! XD
smtimes i think my tuition teacher makes alot more sense even though his ideas come out all warped & wrong.
he lets his gf pay for e date because he feels tt by allowin his gf to contribute to e relationship, his gf will have a sense of committment & achievement... smthing along e line of being useful.
smhow after seeing my friend cry today & just giving her a hug, what he said just came to my mind.
let me describe a trend. i've observed tt ppl who have a tendency to rely on other ppl in sm areas of their lives *i wont specify what in case i get hacked to death by ppl who r attached* r usually attached. isit because by allowin themselves to b dependent on a guy, & allowing a guy to take care of her makes e guy feel macho & able to commit themselves into this relationship too?
i think this is warped, but smhow it's true. HURHURHUR
maybe the fact tt i've this mentality tt to be reliant on others is a sign a weakness, contributes to my stubborness. i refuse to listen or am very unwilling to listen to suggestions unless u give me a very gd reason why i shld do tt, or else i wldn't buy ur explanation. i live on reason, i live to seeing big pictures.
btw i came to this conclusion recently tt arts students who harp on life's philosophies are a stupid. because
1. u won't get any richer
2. u won't get any knowledgeble in the sense tt u won't pass ur gp on any subject unless u study philosphy
3. u tend to bore ppl off if e person has no interest in life's this & that
in fact i think i'm boring myself off.
i shld go burn more tissue papers.....
e things u'll nvr see me do in nyjc
(chances r minute if u wanna c me date a guy, if u're referring to a girl, i do it all e time)
3. attend all events dutifully
(ponning is always on my mind. i've given up on ny's leadership/mental skills trainin course, it makes me more unsure of myself then i already am )
anyway, have u ever realised tt nyjc has nvr announced results of teams who've lost? i mean c'mon, these ppl went all out for the sch, trained, worked very hard, come under intense competition pressure & if they lose they get nthing, nthing at all. nt even a sense of gratification frm e sch. i asked my fren if she'd noticed it. she was like, huh, announce for what, they lost what.
all they're training for is nt just personal glory alone, they represent the sch. they fought till e end even if it means losing. our skills may be lousy but they didn't chicken out, they participated in e competition all e same. what reason do we haf for nt cheering for them?
why can't we say thank u to them for working so hard. why can't we cheer them on & encourage them to work even harder for e nxt competition? why can't we give them a hero's welcome? we only lost in score, we didn't lose in spirit. the fact tt we tried deserves the sch's applause & cheering just as much as those who managed to get into the finals.
where's the spirit?
