Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting around for somebody to give you flowers"

Mum needed me to be in the office today while she stayed home to read the Bible.
Felt a little upset, Sat burnt. Hey, that's 50% of my weekends okay! But at least work isn't boring, was constantly doing stuff: typing, researching, visual work. The worst kind of work is when there is nothing to do! But yet, some people LOVE bumming around at work. Don't know what's going on in their minds. I'm too horribly limited to understand their sea-deep level sense of satisfactions.
Every weekend, there's an endless list of errands to run.
'Get the sense of satisfaction of ticking the check-boxes.'
If only the check-boxes are nicely drawn up. If only they really look like boxes, I'll go fit myself into one until it's Monday.
It's Saturday, 10.28PM, and I feel like it's a Monday.
WHERE ARE MY WEEKENDS?!
Just cuz I feel like typing and forming sentences, I'm gonna do this short survey. It has pretty good questions.
- Do you believe in god?
Yes, I believe in a higher being. I believe there must always be a start to something. I do not relish the idea of formed religions though. Not yet, maybe when I'm older. But yes, I truly believe in a God.
- What do you hope happens when you die?
We return to being ashes, and contribute back to the huge life cycle happening on Earth. Read from a book somewhere, it says something like 'Death is a breakdown of our systems, our body can't take it anymore, so it resorts to being back to the initial stage - we return to being molecules, but this time round, a part of us can be found in the soil, the other somewhere in the sea.'
I like to think that death is an invisible existence, except more powerful, because you can be at so many places at once.
- Do you believe that everything happens for a reason?
Yes, I believe that what we are experiencing now is part of who we would be later. We might not know the reasons now, but it shall be unveiled as time goes. A heartbreak makes one stronger, so one can be the independent being one is capable to be. One decided not to go for a particular trip, because there might be a plane crash. One worked for mum on a Sat, because if she goes to Dempsey for lunch, she might get banged by a car.
- Where do you believe consciousness comes from?
Consciousness means being aware. Where does awareness come from? It comes from your brain functions, It comes from a healthy working brain, with all functions in sync.
- Form or Function?
Why is it 'or'? Mutually exclusive meh? I'm both a Form & Function girl! Really must choose one ah? Okay la, Form.
- Favorite recreational drug?
Food, Fashion and Books!!
- Top five artists?
Mariah Carey, Rachel Yamagata, Ville Valo, Brian Mcknight, Christina Perri
- Top five albums?
I don't know shit about albums. Sorry! But if you're talking about the best songs with an entire playlist I can listen to over and over again. It gotta be Backstreet Boys, Westlife, Grey Anatomy Soundtracks, and all the old school love song ballads.
- Top five singles?
Elephants - Rachel Yamagata, 25 Minutes - Michael Learns To Rock, Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton, Zzyzx rd - Stone Sour & Imagine - John Lennon.
- Top five films?
The Kite Runner, Aftershock, Pirates & The Carribeans, Sanctum, Taken.
- Top five books?
A million little pieces by James Frey, The unbearable lightness of being by Milan Kundera, all books by Jodi Picoult, Doctors by Erich Segal, The Road Less Traveled by M Scott Peck.
- If you woke up in a room with a perfect clone of yourself (same experiences, memories, scars, etc), would you fight it to the death or fuck it?
If it is truly my clone with the same personality and thoughts, we would probably plot something which goes along the lines of :
Me: Okay clone, you stay in Sg for 3 months, while I go and travel
Clone: Waitttt whattt why?!! U stay, and I go travel!
Me: No, U stay.
Clone: Okay fine, I'll stay. But when you're back, it's my turn!
Me: Sounds fair!
And if it's my clone, we would be surprised at first, but totally cool and apathetic after like a few hours.
