You ever look up at the night sky, at the gleaming full moon or glistening blanket of stars, and realization begins to dawn on how magnificent life can actually be? With a slow song playing in the background that you can't help but smile and sway to. Or maybe it's that feeling from laughing too hard, you can't walk straight, or remember what was even funny.

As long as you're willing to look, everyday you'll see little things that prove how blessed you are. Some days I tend to forget to look, but when I do remember, like today, I pen down these feelings so that if I forget, tomorrow - perhaps this will remind me.

To always look, even if it feels like there's nothing to be found.

It never fails to amaze me how time can be measured in countless ways, besides the good ol' hour, minute and second hands ticking away on my shelf. Through songs added to my playlist; weekend adventures passed; moments captured on camera; cravings fulfilled. Perhaps some day I'll tell you to your face that my favourite way of measuring time, is through days spent with you.

Note to my past self from circa one week ago: Not cool how you crammed five chapters of econs/three weeks of accounts lessons into a single day on my (our?) study schedule. I don't appreciate it one bit, pal.

Five days short of a year ago

“I do not know what makes a writer, but it probably isn’t happiness.”
— William Saroyan
Getting my daily dose of laughter, inspiration and of course, reminders on how idiotic some people can be, all on twitter: definitely something I would not have foreseen pre-2k15. Rolling right smack into the middle of the year now and it's not been as smooth sailing as last year, but this life is still a good one. I'm not gonna lie, i've been going back and forth from one spectrum of warm, fuzzy feelings to the opposite end of painful, twisted knots in my chest lately, and it's ridiculous sometimes; but here's to the warm fuzzy feelings that this post shall commemorate.

Things to be happy about: My earphones. Crepe cake for dessert. Going to sleep when it's early, getting up when it's late. Green tea Mochi in school. FREE green tea Mochi. Stars. My allowance hasn't run out. Good songs on Discover Weekly. The thought of getting new slippers. Familiar faces. Redeeming chicken at Nando's. MnM's. Cute moments with mom. Remembering things. Old jokes. The Universe of Us, out in October. Leftover pizza. Going through old notes. Warm blankets. Falling asleep to the sound of rain.
It's the little things, really.

I've got absolutely no idea why, but I've been finding it terribly hard to write down my thoughts this whole year (yeah, sounds a lot more melodramatic than "the past three months" - i tend to be slightly melodramatic). Guess I'll be looking back on 2016 in the future and not having a clue how I felt throughout. All I know is this year has been full of "no bad days" and "do something crazy"s echoing in my head - I wouldn't say I answered all their calls, nor did I reject them. I'll just put it this way.. I'm doing OK.

Luke Sital Singh: I was listening back to my early EPs recently and decided I still like them, which is a miracle really.
This is exactly, one hundred percent, how I feel about this blog. I quite like miracles, anyway.

Been catching lots of spectacular views in the past couple of days, so I'd say things are going great. But from what I've learned two nights ago, no matter how much you believe that.. it never really is (great).

Which pretty much sucks.
