Tick, Tock...

I sat in front of the computer and stare at the blank screen. Time to update the blog, but minutes pass and I still have no idea on what to write. “What to write? What to write?” Then, I gave up staring and proceed to do something that occupies most of my very little free time, Facebook.

I used to love writing. I used to be the one ‘blog crazy’ person among my friends. Well, I guess time, procrastination and workload caught up, and I left the blog unattended for months. Well, not exactly THAT long, I do come back to peek at it sometimes, and as I said, I left without writing. It feels like, I have already lost the passion to write, well, although I write in the most broken English you can ever imagine, it’s still writing. Yeah, you can criticize my use of English words, but I am no language expert here.

Writing provides a relief from stress, and it fills my time when I am bored. I have attempted in writing stories, but they were never complete. Thanks to my limited knowledge of vocabulary. For a very short period of time, I had dreamt of becoming a writer. But, I know it is not possible. I get brain jam when I am forced to write. Due dates are not my thing. Ideas don’t come when they needed to. I envy novelist, writers, story tellers because they can tell amazing stories, with simple words. I used to read a lot, and in my primary school days, I would get so engrossed in reading that I bring the book with me to the dining table. Yes, I was once a nerd who reads on the dining table while eating. And, when I have finished reading all the books, and do not have new ones, I would read those I have read before again. Just for the sake of reading. I guess that’s how I trained myself to read fast. Those books I read in primary school are those mystery books, which comes in series and I would buy all of them. Maybe I was the only granddaughter, daughter and niece in the family, so I get a little more pampered. J

One of my favourite columns in The Star newspaper is written by Mary Schneider (I don’t know how to pronounce her name!!). I have no idea since when, but I have always admired the way she writes. It’s so simple, but the way she carries the story line, I don’t know how to describe, it’s just so simple, but yet, so interesting and the readers are tempted to read more. Another favourite would be Alexandra Wong, also The Star columnist. But because I'm not home all the time, I don't get to read their columns as much already.

They write in a simple manner, but are able to interest people. J Just love their articles. <3

I shall grow-up and not rant here so much. xD

On the other side, there’s this IT fair in Monash this few days and was planning to go, but have to cancel because of work commitments and exams. But that’s ok cause I’m going Lowyat somewhere in mid April, so I may get it cheaper there. Something exciting is happening mid-April *muahahhahahha*. The schedule is so free, but I don’t know why I feel so ever busy. And, there’s this Nikon 10th Anniversary event happening in MidValley, and I really want to go! Maybe I can sneak out a while there and then study. I promise to study ok!! Limit 2 hrs FB till after my exam, ok? :P

So, if you survived till the end of this post, you must be wondering, what is her damn point writing this pointless wordy post?

Well, you bet, I"M DAMN STRESSED!
