Before I Fall.


“You see, I was looking for answers then. I still wanted to know why. As though somebody was going to answer that for me, as though any answer would be satisfying.

Not then, but afterward, I started to think about time, and how it keeps moving and draining and flowing forever forward, seconds into minutes into days into years, all of it leading to the same place, a current running forever in one direction. And we're all going and swimming as fast as we can, helping it along.


My point is: maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there's a tomorrow. Maybe for you there's one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around in it, let it slide like coins through your fingers. So much time you can waste it.


But for some of us there's only today. And the truth is, you never really know.”



I absolutely love this quote from a novel I read a few weeks ago. Click the link to find out more about Before I Fall- Lauren Oliver. It's definitely worth reading!

“I guess that's what saying good-bye is always like--like jumping off an edge. The worst part is making the choice to do it. Once you're in the air, there's nothing you can do but let go.”

Goodbye Followers, Hello Exams :(

So, I logged in to Blogger today to see that I have lost 3 followers. THREE.
It might not sound like a big number but for someone who just crossed the 100 mark, it's sad. If I lose one more, I'll go back to have less than a hundred, after getting all excited about having crossed the mark. This doesn't happen, people don't just lose followers like that. What did I do?!

I haven't posted in weeks. I actually have a reason this time. I have my final exams coming up in a few days so I'm staying away from Blogger. It's distracting.
But I have been working on a much anticipated post: A Letter To Twefrence.
It's already the longest post I've written on my blog and I'm not done yet!
Studying has been keeping me busy, so I can't really sit down and just finish it. When I write a post, it takes me so long to complete it. I wish I was like one of those bloggers who can easily write something every day or at least regularly :/

The next post I publish will most likely be the letter. But I have no guarantees on when it will be posted because I really I am very busy these days. Exams are nerve-wracking. AND I'm retaking two subjects so there's double the pressure. Wish me luck!

This was the last week of college for me. I'm not quite sure how I feel about that, it all happened so fast. My college experience was different from what people would usually experience in college, it was not entirely 'fun' and 'relaxed'. So in some ways I'm glad it's over. But in a way I do think a lot has changed this year.  I have met a ton of new people and made a lot of friends. Many of whom I won't be seeing after college, which sucks.

Speaking of exams, multiple choice questions (MCQs) really drive me crazy. I always have TWO options which I think are the answer and I can't decide on which one I should circle. WHY am I so indecisive?
My thought process while doing MCQs:
"Hmm, I haven't used C in a while..."
or,
"I've answered B for the past 5 questions, one of them must be wrong!"

My first exam is on the 19th of October and the last is on the 22nd of November.
I'll TRY to post the letter somewhere in between because I have pretty long gaps in November. OR I might even post it before my exams start. But that's unlikely.

WISH ME GOOD LUCK! I really really need it.
And sorry I haven't really been commenting on anyone's blog recently. I hope you understand!
I shall leave you with my very doodled on folder. It's not finished yet because my marker stopped working, but this shows how bored I get in class :P


P.S. I'm really liking the new Blogger now, it's so convenient, specially when editing posts!
