Thought Question #431

I wonder this same thing a lot of the time.  I mean, I started young myself.  And there are just so many young people out there still smoking, and smoking, and smoking.  I guess it's because they want to fit in.  Or maybe it's because they're looking for some kind of release from their daily shit.

What do you think?

Thought Question #430

I like the sound of the rain on the roof, on the grass, on the water.  I like the smell of the rain.  I like being cozy indoors or sitting on the patio listening to and watching the rain.  I love the wetness of the world and the drops falling on the plants.  It's beautiful.

What do you like?

Thought Question #429

I'm not scared of much.  I can handle a lot of things.  Even my own death doesn't scare me.  What I'm really scared of is losing someone I love.  Be it death or just life.  I don't handle it well, at all.  The other thing I'm scared of, I think, is being alone.  No, let me rephrase... being lonely.  I mean I like my solitude but every person has their limits, right?

What about you?  Can you admit it?

I can't even say The NeverEnding Story... 'cause it did end.  Eventually.
Love doesn't have an ending.  I'm sure of it.  It might fade, but it stays there nonetheless.

What do you think??

Thought Question #427

What I like most about it is the fact that it's neither too hot, nor too cold.  It's just right!  Almost like Fall, just with more colours.

How cute is this!

Thought Question #426

Tomorrow?  I would catch the first available plane to Europe, dragging everyone I can with me.

What about you?

Thought Question #425

The thing that comes to mind when I think of the most romantic thing someone's done for me, wasn't actually done for me.  Does that make sense?  I had a friend, years ago, who took me with him to his cousins' wedding.  We went for a walk in the gardens while the people were dancing, between the fairy lights and the candles.  He just stopped, grabbed in his arms, tilted me almost down to the grass and gave me a soft kiss on the mouth.  Later that evening, we slept over in a big house owned by his uncle, and he slowly, very patiently, helped me take all the pins out of my hair, kissed me in my neck and called me beautiful.
But no, nothing ever come from it.  After that day, it was never spoken of or mentioned, either.
Other than that, I've gotten flowers here and there.  I've been taken out for dinner.  But I can't actually say any of that was "romantic".  I guess I'm just hard to please.

What about you??

Thought Question #424

Find happiness of your own.  Do what makes you happy.  Decide to be happy.  Keep yourself busy.  Meet new people and keep your friends close.  It can be easy, it's just a hard decision to make.  That's all.

Thought Question #423

A lot actually.  I see people begging at the side of the road.  A see an old lady selling newspapers, looking ragged and worn out.  I see an abandoned baby in a care facility, that'll never know her parents.  I see people without homes, without jobs.  I see hungry people and scared people.  I know I can never truly help any of them, I'm still trying to help myself, you see... but I so wish I could.  I wish I could make it better for them.  I wish I could show them happiness and strength, for themselves.  I read a lot too.  I read the book "It's Me, Anna" again, recently, and it still scares me.
I don't know how to be grateful enough for what I had and what I have...  I'm so blessed.

Thought Question #422

I changed my mind about a lot of things, as well as people.  I used to want to have a big stomach like my grandpa because I thought that's how he can fit that much yummy food in there and I can't, of course today I'm whistling a different tune.  I changed my mind... or rather, learned the ways of the world, when it comes to friendships, love and relationships.  But that's supposed to happen, I'm sure.  My taste in fashion, decor, colour, food and stuff like that also changed of course.  I'm glad.

What about you??

Thought Question #421

It kind of just happened, actually.  My Mom is a secretary, the opportunity was there to learn and to better myself.  I'm good at what I do, so I stuck with it, and I'm learning more as I go along.  But of course, as you might know, I'd love to be in the animation, graphic design and special effects industry.  Although, nothing stops me from making it a hobby and to teach myself.

Ahem !

Happy Birthday to Me !!

Thought Question #420

Happiness and love.  The rest comes after that.  I want them to be independent.  I want them to be friendly and caring.  I want them to be able to work with money in the right way.  I want them to appreciate things.  I want them to learn and succeed.

Thought Question #419

Nope.  I'm not that popular.  And I don't hang out at one specific place.  Except if you count my previous job, everyone knew me there, but only because we were something like 20 odd people working there.  So I doubt that it counts.  Hehe!

Thought Question #418

Honestly?  I can't remember anymore.  I've been keeping myself busy with so many other things, great things, but not reading as much.  I miss reading, and definitely should make more time.

What about you?  And what do you propose I read?

Thought Question #425

Sadly enough, nothing really jumps out at me.  Yes, I've received flowers.  I've been taken out for a date, like dinner and a movie.  I've been spoilt here and there.  But if I have to think of the most remantic moment, I think of an old friend of mine who took me as his date to a cousin's wedding.  We went for a long walk in the beautiful gardens while the other guests were dancing, there were candles and fairy lights dotted around the garden.  And we just had this one moment where he took me in his arms, bent me down really far, brought me back up again, and kissed me passionately.  Later that night, he ever so patiently sat taking the pins out of my har (there were so many), all the time telling me how beautiful I am.  And he wasn't even drinking. Nothing ever came from it, of course.  We remained friends and it was never spoken of again.  But as much as I know it sounds cheesy, and like nothing at all, I felt it was romantic in some innocent way.

Tell me about the most romantic thing someone has ever done for you?  Or that you've done for someone else??

Thought Question #417

I greet them in a friendly way, with a smile.  I compliment them.  I listen to them.  I try and make them feel good and positive about themselves and about life.  I tell them something funny, even if it's embarassing.  I try my best... but I wish I could succeed more often.  And make them happy, not just smile.

Thought Question #415

Corrupt.  Yes, South Africa is corrupt and unfair.  The government is useless.  Promises are empty.  The people with power don't give a sh!t.  It's no wonder everyone buggers off abroad.

Jul 3, 2012

I miss them.  I miss them so much.  And I know it won't even get me anywhere.  It won't bring them back.  It won't make anything better.

Thought Question #414

Financial Independence.  And love.  I want to be able to do the things I want to do.  I want to be able to see the world.  I want to be able to save money and spend it wisely.  I want to be able to have my own place.  I want to be able to have children, comfortably.
