I was talking to Brenda after going to a mutual friends’ baby first month party. Then suddenly it hit upon me that I always say talk to you later just before I part with my friends when in reality, the “later” can be weeks later or not at all. Sorry!!! I wonder it is common. But regardless, I should be kicking this habit.

OK. Back to study. I am at the SMU underpass now. It is huge!

You Learn – Alan Morissette

I recommend getting your heart trampled on to anyone

I recommend walking around naked in your living room

Swallow it down (what a jagged little pill)

It feels so good (swimming in your stomach)

Wait until the dust settles

You live you learn

You love you learn

You cry you learn

You lose you learn

You bleed you learn

You scream you learn

I recommend biting off more then you can chew to anyone

I certainly do

I recommend sticking your foot in your mouth at any time

Feel free

Throw it down (the caution blocks you from the wind)

Hold it up (to the rays)

You wait and see when the smoke clears

You live you learn

You love you learn

You cry you learn

You lose you learn

You bleed you learn

You scream you learn

Wear it out (the way a three-year-old would do)

Melt it down (you’re gonna have to eventually anyway)

The fire trucks are coming up around the bend

You live you learn

You love you learn

You cry you learn

You lose you learn

You bleed you learn

You scream you learn

You grieve you learn

You choke you learn

You laugh you learn

You choose you learn

You pray you learn

You ask you learn

You live you learn

“You Learn”

Another Point of View – Early Matriculation

Another Point of View – Early Matriculation

When I got the call to go down to the admin office for an early matriculation, the only thought was how nice it would be to get back to the education route and getting out of NS fast. Recently, I landed onto a post offering another point of view on this matter:

Look, it’s my matriculation invitation @ SMU. And all the people that’ll be appearing will just be guys. Which means that all the things we’ll be talking about will be, “Which unit were you from? What vocation?” Blah blah blah, boring army stuff again. How sad!!

And i thought my matriculation would be in June or July next year, together with the normal one. -__-”’

I did not think that this would be an extension of army life. T___T

Question on Vampires

Question on Vampires

To all Twilight fans (and other vampire fans for the matter of fact):

If Edward and all the vamps cant tahan (take it) when Bella got a LITTLE paper cut……..

What happens if she’s having her period?!?! Isn’t that like blood overload or something? -.-

Discuss here. It is a private profile, sorry. Can discuss on this post instead. ROFL.

Random Thought

Random Thought

I was just going through things randomly in my head and realised that I can have bimbotic moments if I am not careful. The following is a part of an imaginary placement interview…

Interviewer: So why do you want to join this organisation?

Me: Erm. Erm. I don’t knooow. Erm. Because it is greeeeat??? hehehehaha…

I swear the only times I sound so teh unintentionally at interviews are when I am under medication. =.=

Robertism? Nah. It is Schadenfreude!

Robertism? Nah. It is Schadenfreude!

Often when the name Hitler is mentioned, World War II comes to mind. When Ris Low is mentioned, Miss World Singapore2009 comes to mind. OK, not the event but the words like Boomz and Shingz come to mind. (By the way, Riz Low has a spread on this month’s FHM issue. Read it if you want to see her handwriting.)

Recently, a friend introduced to me a Facebook fanpage: Robertism. This is where I take an interest. My English name is Robert. And I do take offense at the use of the name.

What Is Robertism?
What Is Robertism?

Laugh at misfortune? Robert is a name with a positive meaning.

From Behind the Name:

From the Germanic name Hrodebert meaning “bright fame”, derived from the Germanic elements hrod “fame” and beraht “bright”.

Hey, there is already an English word for deriving pleasure from misfortunes. Not exactly English, since it is a loan word from German: Schadenfreude.

From Answers.com:

noun
Pleasure derived from others’ misfortunes.

Etymology
From German Schadenfreude, from Schaden (damage, harm) + Freude (joy)

If this is not enough, try Chinese:

幸灾乐祸

Use the right words! What if your name is used instead?

I will end this post off with two videos: Schadenfreude from Avenue Q and  幸灾乐祸 by Eason.
