a tornado attack of thoughts

Sunday, June 13

Gosh, I expected workload to be a real pain the ass this semester (well, it's a really painstakingly short one, if you must know). But I didn't expect it to be THIS PAIN. Now my butt figuratively hurts! :'(
Anyhoo, I was merely illustrating the reason behind my absence at this blog of mine. So called diligence, huh?

I've been meaning to really really put myself in front of Blogger and continue the story of "let magic work it's way" & "raw childhood fears" but there's always a B.U.T!! I bet many of you have already given up... but you know what? Even so, I still would really love to end those two bits, regardless.


Because I don't want my list of "Things I've Completed Halfway" to grow even longer than it already is :(
I keep telling myself that but then nothing seems to give me that extra push to go that extra mile. Not until today when I arrived home to a huge chunk of metal scrap on right outside my neighbor's house; just opposite mine. Trees around the neighborhood has broken branches. And my house welcomed me with a dark smile because the power went off and the only thing giving out light amid corners of this place I call home were the lighted candles.

What a news I got upon entering mi casa. Apparently a "tornado attack" occurred just a few minutes before I arrived back and the awning from a house a couple of rows back (it was pretty far away) came flying all the way and landed right in front of the house opposite mine.

The next thing I know, what my Mum said send shivers down my spine...
I was lucky that I arrived home a couple of minutes later and not sooner. Because if I were to be at the spot where the boyfriend dropped me off just now, that awning could have flew over to the car and anything could have taken place. Now, that was some scary shit!!!

I guess a stroll by the park; admiring and envying adorable puppies of rich Malaysian citizens wasn't such a bad idea?

Hence, I wouldn't say that I had a moment of disbelief which came on to a sudden determination...but I've decided that from today on, I want to push harder to go that extra mile longer to finish what I've started (be it anything) and to see things "glass half full".

BTW, is it weird and such a loon to actually have that minuscule desire to see how a tornado looks like in real life? Gosh, what is wrong with me? I really don't want this curiosity of mine to get the better of me...
