I know this post is a little late...I was quite busy lately so I apologize for this late post.
I was watching Clannad ~After Story~ and that show really made me cry & sob. I have never done that while watching a show. That show main theme is definately LOVE.

This show is about this delinquent bum named Tomoya Okazaki who meets a girl name Nagisa Furukawa. They became friends and later, they fell in love with each other. Akio and Sanae (Nagisa parents) even allowed him to stay in their house while he was going through a rough patch with his dad. His dad is a alcoholic and Tomoya doesn't have mother because she died when Tomoya was a kid.
After they graduate, Tomoya and Nagisa got married. Nagisa was soon pregnant and because she had a weak body, she died while giving birth to Ushio. Tomoya got depressed and gave his daughter to Akio and Sanae. When he finally got the guts to raise her up, she falls sick and dies.

If that isn't sad, then, I don't know what is.

This show had many father-daughter relationship and that really hit home for me. It reminded me of my father and I. Well, unlike Ushio, my mother is alive and I'm quite healthy but I am closer to my dad. When I was younger, my dad is the one who will stay home and look after me while my mum goes to work. (my mom works super late last time. My dad will come home by 6.)

There were several episode that really reminded me of my dad and I. Like when, Akio told Tomoya about how he carried Nagisa in his arms, running, trying to safe her. He was also praying for her health.

I remember one time when my father brought me to a dinner party with him. Suddenly, I had a really bad stomachache. It was so painful that I remember rolling on the floor. My dad actually carried me & drove me home. He left the dinner party immediately without any hesitation. When he carried me, I remember the pale shocked face he had.
So when my stomachache finally eased after 2 hours, I apologize to my dad about being a trouble to him. He just ignored those words and pat my head, asking if I feel better.

In Clannad After Story, Tomoya carried Ushio this way and Ushio was so happy. I remember when my dad carried me this way. He always carry me when we went to the circus or funfair. It feels so long ago but I remember that I felt safe when he did this. I felt strong and that nothing could hurt me. Even though, my dad wasn't the tallest man in the world. I felt like the tallest and strongest thing in the world.

When Tomoya knew his wife was pregnant, he worked even harder because now, he realise that he had to support himself, his wife and their child. He didn't find that to be a burden instead, it became his motivation.

I never realise what a child meant to their parents. I always thought that I was trouble to my parents. I never knew that parents look forward to their child's birth. I felt guilty for ruining my parents dreams but what I didn't know is that a child is the parents dream. Our dream is their dream.

Even though, my parents told me that it was not my fault. I felt guilty. But after watching Clannad After Story, I realise all this.

No man lives on their own. They are being supported while supporting people around them. I promise that I will now work hard. For myself, for my parents and for people whose dreams were never realised.

Mum and Dad,
Thanks for just being there for me.
I love you.

Wow. That's a great post. Kind of made me feel the same way about my parents just by reading it. LOL. *suddenly feels emotional*

Anywayz, thanx for your comment :-D I was basically blogging from the viewpoint of a person who believes in a God (because I do ;)) and I do believe He's good and has stuff planned out for the better; sometimes I just don't understand the stuff He does, so I like to figure things out. That's all that post was. But deep thinking is painful, so I don't do it often. HAHAHA! ;)

Dear me,

I watched an anime where a girl managed to write a letter to her past self of ten years. True, that's not possible in reality but the concept of that is interesting. She wrote to her ten years younger self to avoid her regrets. She wanted her past self to change certain decisions in the past so that her current self won't have any regrets.

Personally, I wouldn't want to tell my past self to change her decisions to avoid regrets. Do I have regrets? Yes. But I won't change them because I learnt from them. And that has been grow as a person. So I don't quite regret that.

However, if I could write a letter to my past self, it would be fun. If I were to write to my ten years younger self, that would be my 13 year old self. And this is what I would love to say.

Dear me,

Hello there. This is your 23 year old self. I know, it's unbelievable. You can barely imagine yourself at that age currently. 
I still remember being 13. Vaguely. My memory isn't that great.

But I remem…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Alter ego, SUIT UP!!

Man, it feels odd to have people believe in you at the very moment you do not trust yourself. It feels odd to hear people's praises of you when you're feeling incapable. So I guess, it's time for one of my many alter ego to suit up if I wanna win that debate competition!!

Like any other person, I have many alter ego's...and I'm gonna list most of them today.

Ms Drama Queen
Likes :Attention and spotlight. She's a diva.
Dislikes :People stealing her spotlight or not getting her spotlight.
She is : A real drama queen. She whines & complains alot though. She thinks that the world revolves around her.
Can't handle :Ms Productive

Ms Arrogant
Likes : Winning, winning and winning.
Dislikes : Losing and losers.
She is : A real mean arrogant person. She really doesn't care about the other people. She thinks she is the best. Mostly, she thinks that her opponents aren't even her equal unless they have proven otherwise. Even then, she still thinks she is better than …
