Well, that’s amazing…

For the first time since my mother started tuning in to this station there is actually something I can agree to.

Well, it’s really stupid though it’s true. Some girls like wearing shorts which are too short, or shirts which are too tight, or jeans which are too low yet they think guys who look at them are irredeemably malicious. They’re too conscious about it they hate it when guys stare.

But what’s the point of wearing such clothes if you’re not gonna be comfortable about them? Why wear provocative clothing when you’re gonna hate it when guys are attracted? Why wear them when you’re making yourself uncomfortable?

It doesn’t make sense wearing anything you can’t really wear.

This is absolutely one of the weirdest things yet: I’m on my computer doing computer stuff yet I’m on candlelight.

It’s not that there’s no electricity and my computer’s running on battery. It’s just that light wouldn’t turn itself on no matter how many times I try the switch. Why did it have to fail at a time like this?

And why couldn’t it have given me a warning or something? Like getting dim first? Anything?

It’s raining again. And it’s so weird because there’s so much light when it normally is dark while raining. Now, it’s not dark at all!

It’s like one of those rains when the elderly will tell you that you shouldn’t get yourself rained on because, when it’s this kind of rain, the spirits, the evil spirits are taking a bath.

I wonder if I ever believed that one.

The first word in this particular list is “aa,” which is a kind of lava.

The next word is “aah,” which is a perfectly legitimate word, so stop looking at me like that.

It’s things like these that make reading textbooks so much easier.

And these:

In 1939 Ernest Vincent Wright published a 50,000 word novel called Gadsby that does not contain the letter “e.” Since “e” is the most common letter in English, that’s not easy to do.

In fact, it is difficult to construct a solitary thought without using that most common symbol. It is slow going at first, but with caution and hours of training you can gradually gain facility.

All right, I’ll stop now.

It reminded me why I liked this book the first time I read it.

From Allen Downey‘s Think Python: How to Think Like a Computer Scientist, Version 1.3.1

I can’t believe it’s Christmas Eve. I mean, if it weren’t for the people who are going to church to hear mass, I would hardly be able to believe it’s already December 24.

It feels so ordinary, this night. There is no festive mood in the atmosphere. Very different from the previous years.

I’m not entirely sure how to think of this whole thing though.

Yes, yes, and yes! My hands are almost back to normal and I can type almost normal again! I’m feeling good about this.

#NowPlaying @owlcity‘s Good Time feat. Carly Rae Jepsen

Good morning and good night
I’ll wake up at twilight
It’s gonna be alright
We don’t even have to try
It’s always a good time

I so didn’t like those days…

I don’t usually do this but I was reading something and this was in it:

Love is patient; love is kind. Love is not jealous, it does not put on airs, it is not snobbish. Love is never rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not prone to anger; neither does it brood over injuries. Love does not rejoice in what is wrong but rejoices with the truth. There is no limit to love’s forbearance, to its trust, its hope, its power to endure. Love never fails.” – I Corinthians 13:4-8

It’s just beautiful.

“We set sail on this new sea because there is new knowledge to be gained, and new rights to be won, and they must be won and used for the progress of all people…

“We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.”

– John F. Kennedy

The landscape we see is not a picture frozen in time only to be cherished and protected. Rather it is a continuing story of the earth itself where man, in concert with the hills and other living things, shapes and reshapes the ever changing picture which we now see. And in it we may read the hopes and priorities, the ambitions and errors, the craft and creativity of those who went before us. We must never forget that tomorrow it will reflect with brutal honesty the vision, values, and endeavours of our own time, to those who follow us.

Pleasure in being praised is not pride. The child who is patted on the back for doing a lesson well, the woman whose beauty is praised by her lover, the saved soul to whom Christ says, ‘Well done,’ are pleased and ought to be. For here the pleasure lies not in what you are but in the fact that you have pleased someone you wanted (and rightly wanted) to please.

– C.S. Lewis


Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all. One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.’

I can’t believe how much I was able to do today. All those tasks that remained pending have finally been attended to. And so my tasks list got shorter.

Of course, that was at the expense of spending so much time in front of the computer. But thank God for people who invent that we now have LCD and LED monitors which are much more eye-friendly than the old CRTs. They did us good, did CRTs. But now we have new ones. I’m just glad our town isn’t that far behind.

And, to top if off, I was quite elated when I left the shop because I finally got and eighth character in Grand Chase! Next in line in Jin. I’m getting ever closer to unlocking Mari!

As it seems, the biggest counter-question that anti-RH bill has is whether it can guarantee that the people will be out of poverty once it becomes law.

But is there really any point to asking that? I don’t remember laws having been made to guarantee anything. I don’t remember hearing about any laws and made something certain.

Heck, how many laws do we have against killing, theft, rape, illegal drugs, piracy, treason, rebellion?

And how many of those laws ever made any of those crimes disappear?

None. Because laws don’t do that. That’s not what they’re made for.

I really, really, really hate it when people put a reggae beat in a song that’s meant to be sad.

I do know there’s such songs as Caribbean Blue but that’s different because those were made to be so and they sound good.

I mean, come on, reggae on songs like Grenade and It Will Rain? That’s just stupid. It’s like a pathetic excuse for a remix.

And after all that sorting… I’m so gonna need quite a number of hours just to get all these online properly. This is what I get for not learning how to give some time to those things that I know needs doing. Why does my scheduling have to be based on the matter of urgency?

Well, that’s weird… What’s up with the graduation march playing at a time like this? Who’s graduating and from what?

I can wonder…

Ah, well, at least they’re marching.
