He - Part 7
He feels tired. Tired in every sense of the word. Physically, mentally, emotionally. There’s so much he wants to say but he can’t seem to speak the words. Sometimes there’s too much to conceal. Sometimes it’s not right to spill. Sometimes he feels so alone. Sometimes he is so illogical.
By day, he’s the fella he wants to be. By night, he can only hope to fall asleep. He dreams a similar dream every night. Amplifying his thoughts and creating an alternate reality. Bittersweet. Everything is bittersweet, never just sweet. There’s always two sides of the coin. Too few come that don’t go. He always wonders who’ll be there for an eternity and who’ll be just be vessels passing by. Volatile. He wants stability yet realizes that is but a dream. We’re all in transit. All this talk about dynamism but what if some things never change? What if some things can never be changed? What if it could change but at the expense of others? Would it be worth it? Would it even be worth a try?
He can’t control his actions. He does the exact opposite of what he wants to do. He could only live out his desired behaviour in his dreams. That’s when he feels alive. That’s when he wishes he’ll never wake up. The harder he wishes, the sooner he snaps back to reality. How is a good dream good when it cannot be transformed into reality? How is a nightmare bad when it doesn’t happen in real life? A good dream only reminded him of what could not be satiated and a nightmare made him appreciate his life, indicating that life could be worse. His life is good… or is it?

In the evening, I attended Andrew's b'day party at Castle Green! There was so much food (got crayfish, hehe)! The place was decorated with balloons. There was even a projector and musical instruments. Quite cool. I think his singing improved! Hmm, it's the first time I mixed with the family people at a party, mainly with Audrey of course. Quite funny actually!
Anyway, I forgot to bring my keys so I tried to break in (to no avail but I was successful once before), hung out with Titus, played soccer with him and cycled around my garden. I spent the remainder of my time hanging out in my car!

Sleepiness was probably due to insomnia the other night and 3H of sleep last night. In the whole week, I slept only a max of 4H per night. TSK. WORK WORK WORK. A LOT OF WORK.
Anyway, after training, Jimmy, JY and I went to AMK Hub to watch Evan Almighty! DAMN FUNNY!!! We ate at S11! I had dumpling soup and SATAY!!! SHIOK sia. There's still something I've been CRAVING for a VERY LONG TIME but haven't eat. Hmm, when I free-er then see how.
Well, I kind of caught up with a my load of work already. Just a bit more to go and I'll be fine. Jaime, keep that efficiency up! SLEEP SLEEP! Jaime needs SLEEP!!!

Anyway, I bought my spectacles at Your Eyecare Specialist (YES) at Suntec City Mall. I could collect it in an hour, cool! My old spex died a twisted death. Hehe. My degree increased to 225 (L) and 250 (R). DAMN!

Well, in the evening, we had a basic course for the newbies. Anyway, I got reminded why the shooting star is my ouxiang again... even with a Model-65. Haha. Well well.

Anyway, it was drizzling when we were preparing for take-off from Chicago to Hong Kong. T'was a 14 hour flight. The plane left an hour late as there was still some maintenance crew on board. In the middle of the flight, we saw lightning and the turbulence was CRAZY! The plane kept shaking very violently. My water in the cup kept jumping. We were in the middle of the Pacific so I was a little horrified. Was thinking of reading the safety manual.
We had some time to walk around the Hong Kong airport too. The 3 hour flight back to Singapore was turbulent too. We were having dinner when the plane had a sudden drop (and it dropped rather far, not the normal dip). My water jumped again and our whole cabin exclaimed. DAMN SCARY!!! Huixin so poor thing, her apple juice spilled over her jeans, etc!
In both these flights, the flight attendants had to belt up several times which I think is rather unusual! The flights to Toronto were so smooth but the flights back were horrible!!! BAD WEATHER.
By the time I reached Singapore, it was about 11.15pm on 19 August!

Hmm.. This is a common sight before an examination begins (i.e. sitting on grass patches outside the examination hall)! The grass is nice and the weather's cool. Definitely something unable to be enjoyed in Singapore!
Remember the whitewater rafting we went for? The DVD of it arrived in the mail! I collected it today! I received my first (and probably last) snail mail in Toronto!

Anyway, Huixin and I started out excursion by touring Cabbagetown (possibly the greatest concentration of Victorian houses in North America and where Avril Lavigne was from). We visited Riverdale Farm there! We then went for an underground Toronto walk (a huge, complex version of City Link in SG). We finished off by walking around Kensington! Oh, I saw a real live chipmunk for the first time in my life! It's a lot smaller than I expected! Had buffet dinner at our residence for the first time!
Oh, and they tend to film a lot of shows here. My lecture class got filmed by BBC! Anyway, today they were filming some stuff and when I turned to look back, the girl was half-naked (like NO TOP at all) on the streets!!! I was shocked. Traumatizing.
