This is such a general topic. A man's belief encompasses a lot of things. But I'll try to break it down.
Life: Life isn't fair. Our responses to events in life determines the outcomes that we face. Not everyone will be successful in life. Everyone can be happy. Guys and girls can never be best friends without them eventually being a couple.
Religion: Jesus Christ is the messiah prophesied to be the saviour of humanity. Not all religions are the same.
Love: There's no such thing as "the one" for you. Everyday is a challenge to be "the one". Love is not complete without sacrifice.
2010 was a good year I guess. It feels like so long ago, and yet at the same time just yesterday.
It's hard to identify the highs and lows for me, as everything just seemed so... blah? Like if highs were to be the positive side of the graph and lows the negatives, it feels like I constantly lied on the x axis. Maybe it's because the highs and lows average out to zero. I don't know.
Highs: I graduated. I tried out weird hairstyles. I had very fun housemates. I enjoyed OCF. I drank a fair bit.
Lows: I feel like I didn't really achieve much.
Damn. 2010. You make a very boring blog post. Then again, maybe I'm not trying hard enough to remember. Blame it on the al-al-al-al-alcohol...
Some songs are great. I kinda like Britney Spears. SERIOUSLY.
Mainstream music, what I don't like about it is that it feels so over-thought, over-manufactured, like these songs were written solely for monetary returns and not for the expression of oneself and the letting go of one's emotion. The music becomes dishonest, fake, insincere. The words have no meaning. The music is still catchy, but there's no feel there.
That said, I still listen to mainstream music on the radio when I drive. And I think Britney Spear songs are a gift from God.
OK I don't know how old I was then. I'll need to ask my mom. I'm not even sure if this memory is a true memory or a recreation of said memory formed unconsciously. Maybe someone implanted it in my mind, like Inception.
I probably was 4 or 5. My dad, mom, I as well as JonC and his dad and mom travelled to New Zealand. JonC was still just a baby I reckon. Anyway, so yeah we went to NZ to visit my aunt and uncle who migrated to NZ.
Now on that trip I remember that I was pushed into some pond of water or something by this girl who was ( I guess she still is) older than me. So I was drowning or something. And I can remember the feeling I had. I was very worried that I swallowed a gold fish or something...
Now that it's so long ago, I don't know how true this memory is to the actual events. Signs of age I guess.
I'd really like to visit... Europe in general? I'd really like to do a Eurotrip.
What I'd like to do on said Eurotrip. Drink lots of beer. Take lots of pictures. Eat lots of pizza. Drink more beer. Immerse myself in culture like some douchey "I'm soooo sophisticated" dickhead. Take a couple more pictures. Drink more beer.
Probably should wait till the them countries that have debt problems to to fail. Make me ringgits go further... Pity. They like brothers who have their chicks swipe their credit cards raw...
