The Other Side of Midnight


I really don't know why I came up with that topic. Well, it's the title of a Sidney Sheldon novel and it's midnight so why not? I talked about a Sidney Sheldon novel HERE
No classes today so I'm curled up in my bed, trying hard to ignore the incessant chirping of the crickets in my room and the loud music from the other room, battling with a crazy network and wondering
- Why Network can't be perfect everywhere. Seriously, I'm tired of having to wait for about 5mins to get a page to load. You don't want to know how long it took me to post this.
- Why I keep letting it get to me
- Whyy anyone would be playing music loudly by this time of the night.
- Why I sometimes allow myself to be crippled by fear
- Why someone would say it's his destiny to rob. Yes, I just saw it on Twitter - @l_laitan. No, I'm not judging.
- Why we sometimes let stereotypes disturb us and hurt our feelings.
- Why Darey has such a sweet singing voice
- What the answer to this is. Any ideas?

- Why I've practically abandoned this Criminal Case game. I mean, how else would I get to do some Detective work?
- How we unconsciously let pride ruin friendships
- Why Pringles has to be this appealing. I don't know if I'll ever stop midnight snacking. Who else is guilty?
I really should sleep now. I don't know how but my neighbours have lowered the volume of their speaker and the crickets have toned down on their noise. Who showed them this post?!
It's mid-week. How's it been? Hope it has been off to a great start.
xxx.

  1. Lol. I enjoyed reading this. I'm also guilty of midnight snacking. Whenever you get to stop, let us know. I think the man is inside the house. Cheers

  2. I relate to too many of those points like the criminal case one. And the only reason I don't snack at midnight is laziness. Can't be asked to go down to the kitchen.

  3. Life can be puzzling sometimes and the more we seek answers, the more we discover.
    I think the man is inside the house too!

The Packing Series: Books

As I'm rounding off my undergraduate study, one thing I'm definitely not looking forward to is having to pack my stuff back home. I honestly don't know which I dread more, whether packing or unpacking but I sure do not enjoy either activity. I defended my final year project yesterday. See photos on myInstagram and the single most important thing I had to do next was to start packing. I decided to take it a day at a time and also start out simple. I started with books.


 Packing my books wasn't as simple as you might imagine it would be because I get attached to things a lot. For example, I still have notes from my first year for reasons I can't explain (oh, I just explained it- attachment) and I didn't end up disposing many of my other books even after giving myself the pep talk on how taking 'garbage' back home is counterproductive. The aim is to keep my load as minimal as possible but with the way I still held on to class notes and jotters alike, I kn…

Quick Life Update : The Abusive Relationship I Am In

I trusted him completely but he broke my heart and still is in the business of breaking it. His promise to always be with me Everywhere I Go was alas a lie. He said that only to catch my attention and make me his. He gave me mouth-watering packages that offered me less for more but it turned out to be a façade. I'm tired and frustrated. I can't carry out my normal routine with all he's been doing. I trusted him just this once and he disappointed me. I never should have promoted him from the zone I placed him in initially. I remember all the times I heard people complain about theirs and I was always relieved I wasn't in their shoes but guess where I am now? I guess that's what life does. Sit in a corner and laugh at you. Nice job.
He looks so attractive on the outside but deep down, there's nothing exciting about  him. A big fat façade. I miss the things I could have been doing if I hadn't made the mistake of trusting him too much. His favourite colour is …

The Packing Series: Clothes And Everything in between..

I'm here picturing myself on the receiving end of this content and wondering if I would prefer it as a written or visual content. I'm tilting towards visual but nevertheless, I'm still putting together a written one.
Packing is stressful guys. Oh, I already said that in my last post but I just have to state it again, for the culture.

Clothes

This was not as boring as I had anticipated. Probably because I did it at night and many boxes were checked (pun unintended!). It was 10pm, I had just finished seeing a movie, there was light, I'm naturally a night owl. Check, check. I'm definitely not here to talk about folding and categorizing clothes so, there's not much to talk about. What lesson(s) did I learn? Well, bracing the odds of going ahead with packing my clothes instead of lazing in bed and on social media that night made me realize and relearn that if you ever get the urge to do something in a particular moment, then you should do it. Someone pops into your…
