Just live

Have your adventures, make you mistakes, and choose your friends poorly - all these make for great stories
-Chuck Palahniuk

Stay strong

Things don't go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.
-Charles Jones


There's no friends like the old friends
-James Joyce

We exist, you know

“Man is the only animal for whom his own existence is a problem which he has to solve”
 -Erich Fromm

Agyness Deyn

I think she's really cool. Outrageously cool.

I like her. :)


" It is said that humans are never satisfied, that you give them one thing and they want something more. And this is said in disparagement, whereas it is one of the greatest talents the species has and one that has made it superior to animals that are satisfied withe what they have. "
-The Pearl by John Steinbeck

I guess that we should have things we want to improve on, but let us not get too greedy and want things in excess all the time. :)

Of butterflies and flowers

 So the sun was shining happily on earth yesterday when I reached home yesterday.  And butterflies were fluttering happily among wild grasses and tiny wild daisies standing high.  So I ran in the house to get a camera and my dad's gardening straw hat. And squatted under the sun by the drain to snap photographs -in my school uniform.

My neighbor was on her way out and I think she was wondering what in the world was I doing. 
She waved at me. I waved back and sent her a smile together with it.

And maybe I'll be that photographer. :)

Today, there was a dragonfly sipping nectar. But I couldn't catch it after wasting time racing into the house to get a camera.


Ah well. :)

For you.

If you spent your life concentrating on what everyone else thought of you, would you forget who you really are. What if the face you showed the world turned out to be a mask....with nothing beneath it?

-Jodi Picoult

Sky on fire

  So you'd have thought that the sky was on fire yesterday.

  I'm not really supposed to be here now. But...yeah. I just wanted to share these photos.

  Anyway, I was studying -for history- yesterday. But once I took a camera in my hands, I just couldn't resist. Thank god that at least I read quite an okay bit. :S

  It's not very good. I realise that I didn't prepare for my exams as early as I should. And this might just cost me my future. Help.
  Ah, but at least I can study. Thank you for that. I made my own inspiration. :) I hope that you have your own too.

Good luck! :)

I used to be obsessed about him

Now I look back and I think it's kinda funny. But I don't regret it. Everything happens for a reason and we have to go through that something before we got to where we are now. :)

why ?

Knowing you have something good to read before bed is among the most pleasurable of sensations
Vladimir Nabokov

What I have to keep reminding myself of

If somebody is stupid enough to walk away from your life, Be smart enough to let them go.

Note to self :


run like veins through my body.

I wonder if one day my body might just melt and all that's left is a black puddle of ink on the floor.

Wishful thinking.
I wish that that is how I can die. Coz I don't really want to live till I'm old and wrinkled and slow and all I can feel is mostly pain from joints and stuff -well, at least that's what I think now. Sure, I'll be wise -this, I know- and all, but wouldn't it be better if you could play your part on earth and leave only your best behind, and I seriously don't mind dying young.  The minor problem here is how I would die.

Well, I guess that I don't have to worry much about that yet.

Oh, and if 2012 comes, I seriously don't mind. I think that everyone needs a new start, the earth needs a new start now that so many things are so messed up. And by the way, people, your '2012' is happening already. It has started, and you didn't even notice. Open the newspaper and you see these earthquakes of never-before imagined magnitudes and natural disasters of all sorts -droughts, floods, hurricanes......
Yeah, you didn't notice.

Looking outside

Sometimes when it comes to my mind, I like pausing whatever I'm doing and think about when I'll be living in England. And because I try to use photos to affirm it better, I like to imagine that that scene is what I see from my room window.

Ahh... :)
There is always the temptation in life to diddle around making itsy-bitsy friends and meals and journeys for years on end. It is all so self conscience, so apparently moral…But I won’t have it. The world is wilder than that in all directions, more dangerous…more extravagant and bright. We are…raising tomatoes when we should be raising Cain, or Lazarus.

Annie Dillard


stuck in the middle

Sometimes, I feel the past and the future pressing so hard on either side that there’s no room for the present at all.

-Evelyn Waugh

You should read


The greatest gift is the passion for reading.
It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites,
it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind.
It is a moral illumination.

Elizabeth Hardwick
