A Rant for My 21st Birthday

An awesome new dance shoes that I have always wanted...



A cute, creative, colorful and "Don't be emo so much" birthday messages book...



Having to drink "something" from a condom...



A great voucher that can be used for a day out with a pretty girl...



And not to mention a 2/3 condom pack...

They say the XTRA stands for XTRA small. Sad :(


What more can I ask for my 21st birthday? It was an unforgettable birthday alright. One that caught me by surprise and one that definitely put a smile on my face. Thanks to everyone, especially the ENG-NUS gang, that made it memorable, despite all your busy schedule. I promise not to be emo so much already. Hahaha.

So yeah, yesterday was one of the rare days where I was on hiatus as I was suffering from the Lazy Birthday Syndrome. You know, the I-don't-wanna-do-anything-except-enjoy-myself-because-it's-my-damn-birthday feeling that you only get once a year? But since birthdays only last a day (why no one ever thought of birthmonth instead?) and I'm really much paranoid that all my readers would disappear if I stop writing for a day, I have no choice but to sit in front of my dear ol' laptop almost 3am in the morning typing away. I should really get all my blog posts printed out one day and make it as a book. Who knows it might make it to the bestsellers list?

On a more serious note, it's amazing to see how yet another year slips past when you're not really noticing. I still find it hard to believe that I've already spend three years in Singapore, on this completely new journey called university life. It's even harder to believe that I'm already an adult by legal definition. Where did all the time go? It only seems like yesterday I came to university but now I'm already more than half way through.

But I guess this is how life works, no matter how much we hate it. The clock only moves forward in one direction and what we do today will forever stay permanent once the time moves forward. There's no room for undo or regrets. We just need to learn how to live everyday to the fullest without regrets.

21. That's a big number for me. I guess I should stop living for the sake of living and start putting some meaning to my life. After all, all we are getting is only one shot to life. There's no retry or another life. Unless you believe in reincarnation, that is. But then again, if you end up as a cockroach, there wouldn't be much to retry.

Oh well. Happy 21 again to me. Time to face the world as an adult. I hope.
