Two pink-eyes. They burn. Badly.
A stuffy nose.
And melting in the heat.

That's as much a summary as I am able to give right now.

Freeze!... Please?

There are times in your life when you wish you could just freeze everything.
That everything could stay exactly that way forever.
Not necessarily because that moment in life is so splendid (though usually that's exactly why), but because you fear what comes after that specific moment.
You know things are in a continuous flux, and everything changes.
Then you know things for you will change. That's okay.
When you know they'll end up changing for the worse, then you've got a problem.

I wish I could've frozen time in May. Or last January.

I'm going to do my hardest to enjoy the coming months.
Because I have to.
After all, life's not about how many breaths you take, but about the times that take your breath away. [/cliché].

Something to think about.

When I do (or don't) do something, I don't do (or not do) it for others.
I do (or don't do) it because I do (or don't) want to do it (or not).
So stop judging.

Drinks all around!

Felicitations are in the air. A lot of people are being congratulated on passing, ie. succeeding for their year's exams. I, for one, passed this period with a mingled feeling of gratitude for not sitting for any exams whatsoever this year, nostalgia over when I used to think exam-stress was the most awful thing ever (think I'm over that, now), and an obsessive anxiety about next year.

To be more specific, I have a "What the hell did I get myself into this time?" kind of feeling.

Anyways: Congratulations! to all those who passed, Good luck! to all those still busy with exams and projects, and uhm.. Hi! To all those who fall in neither category.

I vote for a party.
I love parties!
Drinks all around!

Have I posted this before?

In this city, perhaps a street.
In this street, perhaps a house.
In this house, perhaps a room,
And in this room a woman sitting,
Sitting in the darkness, sitting and crying
For someone who has just gone through the door
And who has just switched off the light
Forgetting she was there.

First timers.

In the past 48 hours I've:
* Been in 8 different trams, 2 different buses, and 4 different trams
* Watched 4 different movies.
* Been to a new province. (Flevoland- never been there before)
* Ate white chocolate (in a mix) and actually liked it.
* Saw 4 movies.
* Had tacos, chives and a semi-professional massage for the first time in my life.
* Sung in public transportation.

I've been noticing that ever since I moved back to Holland, I've been having "First time tries" of everything. It's kind of unsettling how quickly I got used to the "Oh, I've never tried that before.. Well, exciting, here goes.." and over the "Should I..?" hesitation.
I got gutsier. And apparently sharper. Definitely harder. Maybe wittier.
It's interesting to compare this me to the me a year ago. Or even better, three or four years ago.
As long as I don't derail, that's good, nay?

On Politics and A Murderer

Any person living in Holland will have been able to tell you what the news has been about in the last couple of weeks, even if they themselves consistently avoided knowing about it. This is only because it's been everywhere; Newspapers, internet, radio, television, mouth-to-ear communication, and whatever other kind I am forgetting.

* Politics, and the elections.
* Holland's football team going to South Africa (World Cup News)
* Joran van der Sloot, infamous murderer/pimp/pokerplayer/drug dealer/messed up person who got caught in Peru.

I'm hungry.

Credo Quia Absurdum

It means something along the lines of "I believe /because/ it is absurd."
Basically the meaning of having faith in something, right?
If you could prove it, scientifically or otherwise, it wouldn't need faith.
It would be a fact.
Which is why having faith means believing in something you can't prove.
Something that might or might not happen.
Something that might or might not be.

I can't prove that things will be better from now on.
But I can have the faith to wait and see.

To quote from my favourite actor in the world ** :
"But that's impossible!"
"Only if you believe it is.."
- Alice in Wonderland (**Depp)

Yeah. This is what philosophy does to me xD
Makes me wonder the weirdest things.
I must be bonkers. But then again, all the best people are~
