Thoughts of yesterday

This computer is so horrible! Used for eight years by five people, three of whom have become adults during the time, it is FILLED. Filled - top to bottom. Photos, music and other junk are driving me crazy as I attempt to clean the mess. I am a) Sending stuff to the person it belongs to OR b) Waiting to save stuff in the removable hard disk OR c) Deleting them. I am also listening to Owl City. I am surprised that I haven't heard of him before last Friday. He's up there with Kimya Dawson, Dawud Wharnsby Ali and Anjan Datta now. I love the way he strings his words together and the way his soft voice pronounces them! Fireflies shook up a sudden urge in my mind, an urge to write something incredibly beautiful. But the words aren't flowing from me. The last time I wrote a beautiful piece was the day before maths extension two exam. And that was a beautiful, but depressing song. I really want to write something that would fill someone up with lasting, warm and fuzzy feelings.

Things I want to do in a few (5-10?) years:

- Be a photographer for a magazine, possibly something that would help the society instead of demeaning it.

- Write songs for special people in my life.

- Publish poems in some place where people would feel inspired after reading them.

- Try to make the world a better place every single day.

You would not believe your eyes if ten million fireflies light up the world as I fell asleep,

Cause they fill the open air, and leave teardrops everywhere,

You'd think me rude,

But I would just stand and stare!

The disney night started off quite slowly, but it didn't take long to pick up its pace. I started to feel sleepy as soon as I got dressed up. Maybe it had to do with the fact that I was Sleeping Beauty? My clothes and face resembled nothing of Sleeping Beauty. The colours were tangentially similar, if you sort of stretch your imagination a bit further than usual. And we got out of the constumes a couple of hours after we put them on anyway. But Stargazer Rad won the Best Dressed, as deserved! Nemo won Best in Character for Cruella de Vil, as she made herself imitate the lady perfectly! Best Hair was won by Salsa, who didn't even want to dress up at first! Then we ate and ate and ate until my stomach increased a few inches and couldn't hold any more. Then we watched Princess and the Frog, Mulan, Ice Age 3, Up and House Moving Castle. We skipped through Princess and the Frog because it was pirated and a very bad quality one too. I fell asleep as soon as House Moving Castle started - around 2.30 am. I was let into a little secret during the way. Salsa has way too much time on her hands and way too little things to do.


  1. yes, maths exams always get one all misty-eyed...

  2. ahem. it's Howl's Moving Castle.
