Reality?

Just like that, the harsh winds of reality blew, killing off the remaining flicker of flame from the beautiful candle of hope.

Obviously, just from the words above, you can tell I'm not happy with my A-levels results that came out recently. It wasn't good nor was it bad.
But I'm just not happy with it.

People say it's alright.
They tell me to move on and to cheer up. 
They say it doesn't matter as long as I did my best.
They tell me to forget.

I really appreciate the thought of them wanting to cheer me up. Thank you, really.

But I can't pretend to smile when I feel like crying.
I'm not okay.
I'm not alright.
It's not alright.

Will it ever be alright?
I don't know.
Will I be alright?
Eventually. Hopefully.

But right now, I'm not alright. So just let me be. Let me wallow in my sadness.
No amount of words can comfort me.
Nothing can.
It'll take a while for me to recover, like always.

All I need right now, is someone to understand that I'm in pain and is able to stand by me.
Fortunately, I have that.
So, once again, thank you.
I hope I can repay your kindness.

You probably think it's stupid for me to just wallow in my own sadness. 
But I just have to say that this has impacted me harder and more painful than I thought. 

It's odd though. It's always easier to help others and to stand by others than it is to help myself and to stand by myself.

I wonder which is worse. Watching someone you care break or watching yourself break?

I think watching someone you care break is more painful than watching yourself break.
Why? 
Because it's easier to just let yourself break. After all, does it freaking matter? Obviously not.
But to watch someone you care break. You see them in pain and you try to help them and you wish you can do more but there's nothing else you can do.
All you can do is hope that your presence and your words are enough.

I'm seeing my friends break as well too. 
I really hope that I can just stand by them and just understand their pain.
I hope what I do is enough.
And I really hope that they know that I'll be here for them, always.

It's odd.
I'm breaking but I want to help my friends more than I want to help myself. I want to hold their hands and cry with them.
I want them to know that we'll all be alright, in the end.
I want them to know that despite everything, everything will be alright.

So, I try to help my friends as I let myself wallow in my own sadness. But lucky for me, as I wallow, my friends try to help me or are wallowing with me.

Whatever.

Point is, I'm a mess. Isn't that just great?

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 …
