just keep chillin'...

Monday, 9th June 2008 – 9:25pm Singapore time

I am exactly one week away from my first day of work… It’s a mish-mash of feelings: a bit excited, kinda nervous and also hoping that the days of carefree laziness will never end! =( I think this will be the last time ever that I will truly be able to have a break… Sigh… Isn’t it strange how when you’re young and have all the time and energy in the world, you usually don’t have the money to do anything? And when you’re old and tired, with enough money, you sometimes don’t have the energy to do it? That’s why rich kids suck… Cos they get the best of both worlds… Boo rich kids! ;p

Anyway, I was chatting with a friend one day… This friend is not local and was talking to me about how in many Asian cultures, the fairness of one’s skin is associated with beauty… It’s pretty sad, but true… I guess as humans, we always want something which we can’t get… Like when I was in Oslo, the more tanned or ‘brown’ you were, the better you ‘look’… This is probably because most of them are pale and blond and blue-eyed…

Oh well…

It’s my time-trials for dragonboat tomorrow!! Argh! I hate time trials… They’re painful and inconsistent and so dependable on the most insignificant factors… Like luck for example… Bleargh… Aiyah, just do la…

Alrighty, time to chill again… Till the next update…
