Our choices haunt us...

I chose this saying for my sign, after finding out that the Hakkai one I'd used was no longer there. Instead, I found this really cool pic of Kurama. It may be one of the pics from the anime, but I don't care. What I liked about it was that he looked as though he was haunted, haunted by nsomething that he did not want to remember, but he could fight anyway.

Our choices haunts us forever. No matter what kind of choices we make, where we make them.

Why do I say this?

Because my choices.... the choices I made as Naoko, Karen and the others in my stories haunt me. I am a part of their lives and they are a part of me. Their lives is as real to me as others are. The choices I made... they haunt me not in the sense of how it may change the storyline, but much deeper. Much, much deeper...

Yes, I know that my report on both the last briefing of the move to Cyberjaya and the tour is waaaayyyyy overdue, but I'm just to lazy to do it, so there! *sticks tongue out*

In any case, I'd thought I'd share with you something that happened to me just recently, and has affected my life. No, really, I mean it. Then again, it may have been due to too much caffeine. *Looks at packets of Tesco cappucino accusingly*

On Sunday, while lining up to receive Communion, I happened to glance to my right. There, a cute little Chinese girl was trying to keep a rather handsome little Indian boy from taking her flask. The tone of the play was not one of seriousness, or even naughty. It was simply... Childish. Innoncence and naivete... Two traits a child should NEVER have to lose! Well, until they reach puberty that is, or even then...

But I'm disgressing. What prompted me to write this was the beautitude that sprang up in my heart. "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God." (I got this from here) When I saw them... It just touched my heart. Nothing else. This was the way children should be. They should have to be forced to study at a young age, should not be forced to learn things that they just won't understand the use of. Reading and writing is one thing. Children should have to be forced to actually GO for tuition simply to get A's in reading and writing. I would rather my child socialize. I should know this, cos I was one of those who was sent to kindergarten. And for the purists there, it is NOT pre-school. That may be the official name, but I see no difference between kindergarten and pre-school. They both have the same aim, unconscious or not. To make children grow up BEFORE their time! It seems unfair to me, that our parents can have their childhood, but their kids can't.

You know, He *point upwards* has a sense of humour. I meant to start the entry off with this paragraph, but I somehow got sidetracked *looks up* He has this absolutely delicious sense of humour, until it comes back to bite you. Well, I suppose that He should have a sense of nhumour. After all, He IS the Creator is He not?

That's all for now, JA!

They're banning books!

Apparently, according to the Deputy Home Minister, books, particularly horror books that "have no educational value" will be banned. WTH?

I, for one, am pissed off. How could they do something like this? It doesn't make sense! It's stupid!

When I am less angry I am going to write them a nice long petition.

*Walks off in a huff*

I'm a little braindead now.

Today was one of the worst days of my life. My college life anyway. First, I found it difficult to reconcile my assignment. Then, Gaia kills the reply boxes.

There were some high points. Barb, the RP, my bf, lunch with the gals.

That's all for now. Off to read Trace's blog. It's interesting.
