IRL: Life & Death


Hello, it's been a while. I had wanted to launch a new feature last week but devastating news struck my nation. Our great father of the nation, Mr Lee Kuan Yew had passed on. I was stunned and I grieved with the country. He was a man that is so familiar yet still a stranger to me, because he is a political giant, someone seemingly untouchable but he is always present in our daily lives around us. I think of myself as a person who constantly represses my emotions but for a couple of days, the tears came and I failed to push them down. I wondered how in control his son must have to face the people and not break down.

Well, moving on, since I still live in his legacy, I must chase the adventures under the rainbow in the brighter skies he has brought to us!

1. BLOG NAME
If you've noticed, I changed my blog name (again). As with my promise to uphold this blog, I also promise to stand by this name. There will be some cosmetic changes happening in the week, if you are passing by, please pardon the dust. 

2. NEW FEATURE(S)
I'm still in a bit of a struggle as to what to name my new feature. It features old things and new things side-by-side, but sometimes it only has the old stuff. It's always the names! Damn it. But I'll get through this! I also hope to try vlogging, I have been saying this for years and years but I just can't over my own psychological barriers. One step at a time, I suppose.

3. INSTAGRAM SPRING-CLEANING
I recently wiped my Instagram clean, just because I was sick of looking at messy and mundane pictures. I would like to post things with at least some purpose and structure from now on, at least in an attempt to beat my life into shape. I like my Zen take on life but sometimes, I feel that I get too laxed about things. (LAZY ASS.)

4. BIZARRE GRADES
I was very confused when I received my grades for both my second assignments in different modules and they leapt two or three grades from the first assignments. I was pretty sure I did not do anything different from my usual wing-it routine. I must have gotten some flight angle correct. It was a rather queer experience.

5. REDISCOVERING THE LIBRARY
Usually when I turn into the library, I make a beeline for the YA line. Recently, to kill time, I ventured into some shelves labelled "General" and found some fascinating titles so I borrowed a handful of Sherlockian publications. There is also one book I'm interested in which I had to place a reservation for because of all the libraries in my tiny country, only one copy exist. Goodness gracious, it must be an obscure book. 

I guess these are sort of 50% "in real life", or let's take it as a form of wrap-up. ;) I had wanted to post this yesterday but it was April Fool's and I don't fancy that particular day very much.

  1. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of Mr. Yew - it's so rare to find truly admirable politicians, and it's wonderful that the meant so much to Singapore.


    I love the new blog name - it's a unique combo and speaks to the concept of time and reading which I love. :) I'm glad too that you are enjoying some different books - the Sherlock instagram photos you put up were awesome!
