great. just great.

when things go wrong, as they sometimes will...in other words, when you find yourself in (semi) deep sh*t...don't you just wish you could do things at your own pace and time? to not have any care? to just forget about the world?

we wish. you wish. i wish.

splendid. just splendid.


Chasing Cars
by Snow Patrol

we'll do it all
everything
on our own

we don't need
anything
or anyone

if i lay here
if i just lay here
would you lie with me and just forget the world?

i don't quite know
how to say
how i feel

those three words
are said too much
they're not enough

if i lay here
if i just lay here
would you lie with me and just forget the world?


forget what we're told
before we get too old
show me a garden that's bursting into life

let's waste time
chasing cars
around our heads

i need your grace
to remind me
to find my own

all that i am
all that i ever was
is here in your perfect eyes, they're all i can see

i don't know where
confused about how as well
just know that these things will never change for us at all

if i lay here
if i just lay here
would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Hi Vina,

I thought my browser was having a problem when I saw skeletons of codes popped out somewhere, I kept turning it off to see what causing the problem - your blog was having a bad day.

But don't be feeling upset. We are still here reading you. I'm sure you're not throwing wine glasses at us just because you're pissed.

Cheerie up.

Yes, I have had that feeling.

The more I am pushed to do something I a not in the mood for, the more I want to withdraw.

Lately, I have realized that knocking yourself out to get something done is generally not worth it. Just do a reasonably good job and let people give you feedback on it. For example, whenever I have to write documents at work, I just quickly dash something off and hand it over. Then I wait for feedback. Sometimes it is good enough, sometimes it is not even close to what they want, but ... I have saved myself al ot of stress by not sweating over it.

Another example: I used to agonize for hours trying to buy the perfect birthday card or gift. Now, I am much faster, I get the first thing that it "good enough". Believe it or not, most people won't notice the difference between a blue sweater you picked out for them in 10 minutes or one it took you 3 hours to find because you needed that just so perfect shade and cut.

Take it easy, get whatever needs to be done done and then come back and brighten our day with your glorious smile.

Take care!
