17:33

You shoulda seen the smile that burst out. The cheer that got splashed all over. My, even my hair looked good after it. Like a withered flower that got rained upon. Like an ill princess that finally basked in the garden sun. Complete rejuvenation. Revival of the down.

Thanks It for those 17:33.

disclaimer: I know that your blog is for you and not for me.

However I am still compelled to mention that the style of your blog has changed an awful lot since its birth. It gets more and more cryptic and mysterious by the day. I kinda don't even expect to get it anymore. Its kind of like reading bits of your undiluted thoughts - like without any explenations or background info. Its cool in a way... And quite frustrating in another way...

it's like this-when i first started, noone knew me, i was all alone in this blog world (except for you of course, my blog mother hehe) and i kept this up cuz i didnt wanna do the emails anymore. then more and more people started comin and things got more personal, i dunnno, it felt weird, so i just switched this to my journal. i dont needa put any background info in cuz i know the background for everything. i dont understand why people keep on readin this blog when nearly all of it cannot be understood. i dont mind explaining most of my posts, i just dont like writing them out in full cuz it feels redundant to me.

for ex, this post was written right after i hung up the phone with ita. i happened to look at the call length and i mused to myself how those seventeen minutes and thirty three seconds made sucha difference to my night.

someone just asked by another post if they were excerpts from my journal. this blog IS my journal. ain li savlanut to write by hand anymore so this has become my journal.

also, it kinda excites me that i can make up my own words and phrases with no silly teachers stiflin my err creativity.

i hope that made some sense to you, i should start editin/re-readin my writing but im just too lazy.
