Here We Go Again - Demi Lovato

A friend asked me how much I would give myself out of 10 the other day in terms of physical appearance and I said maybe 3 or 4. He said that I don't look like the kind of person that would give myself that score. The portrayal that is given out is someone that would be given 7 or 8.

How much would you give yourself?

Passion - Utada Hikaru

The Acomodador or giving up point: there is always an event in our lives that is responsible for us failing to progress: a trauma, a particularly bitter defeat, a disappointment in love, even a victory we did not quite understand, can make cowards of us and prevent us from moving on. As part of the process of increasing his hidden powers, the shamans must first free himself from that giving up point and, to do so, he must review his whole life and find out where it occurred.

Has there been that moment? The moment we give up on things just because we thought we couldn't go on further or there was always a limitations to us as human beings. As someone used to say to me, we as humans are capable of limitless things, if we were to push the boundaries and to strive further. Just because of a past, doesn't mean that we were to give up on the future. Or that we should never try something again in the future when the options presented itself again. We would just need to reassess and know where did it go wrong, what was to be mended, and to open up again to the possibilities of being struck down again, and to stand up again and again. If we were to give up, then our life would be filled with defeats won't they?

Final Distance - Utada Hikaru

Why do we love certain people and hate others?
Where do we go after we die?
Why are we born if, in the end, we die?
What does God mean?

The fundamental questions of life. Have you tried asking yourselves these questions? Have you the answer to all these questions? As we live throughout our life, some does, some doesn't; but even if they do, do they understand? Is the answer really the answer?

You Belong to Me - Taylor Swift

Excerpts from 'The Zahir':

Love said: 'I am everything and I am nothing. I am the wind and I cannot enter windows and doors that are shut.'

Lux Aeterna - Clint Mansell

In the words of a Persian sage: Love is a disease no one wants to get rid of. Those who catch it will never try to get better, and those who suffers do not wish to be cured.

Broken Hearted Girl - Beyonce

' That's why it is so important to let certain things go. To release them. To cut loose. People need to understand that no one is playing with marked cards; sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. Don't expect to get anything back, don't expect recognition for your efforts, don't expect your genius to be be discovered or your love to be understood. Complete the circle. Not out of pride, inability or arrogance, but simply because whatever it is no longer fits in your life. Close the door, change the record, clean the house, get rid of the dust. Stop being who you were and become who you are.'


New Divide - Linkin Park

I'm a whiner. I whine too much and complaint too much. I should stop. This moment on. Period

别在伤口洒盐- 张惠妹

There's two kind of relationships: One where both parties barely know each other, but feelings are mutual and they decided to pursue the relationship further and know each other better from there. The other one is whether both parties started out as friends, develop further to be good friends and they realize that they've fallen for each other, and that's where they decided to pursue the relationship further.

Both types of relationship have their pros and cons. Scenario A started with both parties barely know each other and progress to understand each other better. As the relationship goes further, they understand each other better, they find out whether they are suited for each other, then they decide whether they will learn to accept the differences and stayed on. Fights and arguments are bound to happen, but it makes them either stronger or fragile. But the challenge in getting to know each other better, the excitement is there and there's always a new thing everyday.

Scenario B started with both parties know each other well enough, and understand each other enough. As the relationship progress, they will still find out new things about each others, but lesser and maybe more private and in details. The relationship is stable from the start, so there's bound to be lesser fights, but more of compromising and communications. But, this is where sometimes the relationship gets stale and progress nowhere. It just get stuck in the middle unless there's new things added as the journey progress on. Stability and conformity. So, which are you?

Love Song- 方大同

The battle is over,
The battlefield is clear now,
The dust has settled,
It's time for me to sigh a relief,
It's time to me to stumble a while,
Just in time for me to stand up again.
Just in time for me to face another.

The world is spinning,
The inner me is standing,
The surface is running,
Shall I stop and ponder?or
Shall I continue standing and running?

It's time to learn,
It's time to appreciate,
It's time to hope.

Hush Hush- Pussycat Dolls

Somehow, I realized that my muse for writing is gone recently. Is it because I don't have the feeling of empathy anymore? Have I shielded myself too much that it blocked my whole world entirely? The sadness or the emo is not there. Even when it's here, it feels empty. The feeling of emptiness, it's as if being trapped in a room, with no windows or doors. Have I locked myself out too long? Have I tune myself out?Please, someone come and wake me up from the numbness.
