Goodbye March, Hello April!

Can you believe that the first quarter of the year is already over?

April is often associated with April Fool – who can beat this ultimate April Fool prank? – but for me it was a day I spent in a mixture of desperation and revelation.

If I am to be honest with myself, I didn’t seem to learn from what I told myself in the past two months. Same mistakes were made, albeit in different context.

Maybe they are not just mistakes. Maybe… they are part of who I am.

I didn’t blog as much in March. A big part of my life was not suitable for blogging – no la, it’s not R-rated or whatever! – but it still hold deep meaning for me, nonetheless:

The day when I finally fit into a 32″ pair of jeans. It might be an everyday thing for you, but for me it was a major milestone!

I always thought that the term “ugly Singaporeans” is somewhat misused, but this incident changed my mind.

The worst Saturday in March – here’s ten reasons why it was so

The day when I passed my probation in my new job. Hooray!

I was having a major reservation about visiting Hong Kong because of a flu outbreak – but it proven that my fear was somewhat unfounded and the trip was actually rather enjoyable

Finally my dream came true – to have a puppy to call my own. But as Ribena spend more time with me at home, I realised that I am incapable to provide her a loving home environment she deserves. With a heavy heart, I decided to give her up.

So what have I learned in March?

I learn to relax and fret too much when it comes to dating someone. It is about getting to know someone. I must always, always remember that. Not treating the other person as a partner (already)

I rediscover the career-driven working alcoholic in me. I remember the days when I spent countless hours in office, and when all I can talk about was work. Not that I want to be that extreme again, but I want a bit of that craze again.

And I remind myself that as much as someone appeals to you, you need to think for the bigger good. As much as you like this one thing, if you can’t give it the best it deserves, and someone else can, let it go. If it’s meant to be yours, it will be.

Happy April, everyone! :D

To be misunderstood…

It’s easier to be more expressive now that chatty Mercury is in outgoing Aries, but you must be careful not to spend too much energy justifying your feelings. Once you start talking, you may be inclined to say more than is necessary. Being understood is important, but don’t be in so much of a hurry. Mercury stays in Aries for a couple of weeks, so there is plenty of time for you to get it right.

If only this comes yesterday.

The Big Picture

I have lost sight of the big picture.

Blinded the whirlwind of unstoppable excitement, great company and little details, I forgot what is important to me, and what actually make sense.

It’s time for me to take a step back and put things in perspective.

You gave me things to think about. We just arrive at different conclusions.

Don’t let one single hand block out the sun from shining on us. I know I won’t.
