Chandler Bing is epic. and so is a certain someone. xD

i really like this picture. they make such a cute couple!

Adele (: she reads every girl's mind.

Arctic Monkeys has never really been my kind of band, but i like this one. The above line especially.

Merry Christmas, everyone! ^^

   this Christmas i realized that it isn't about the way people around feel about me, it doesn't matter if they don't care enough. simply loving them and doing everything i can to make things better for them can make me happier than anyone. it's an amazing feeling - having love to give, having people to love. for those who aren't exactly having the best Christmas ever because you're lonely, lost, discontent - i hope you'll see it to.
   oh, and i'd like to share my favourite Christmas story with you. i always cry like a baby when i read it. (x

Hunter and Tori: Part III

Dear Hunter,
Dear Tori,
   remember when i said we could make it through together if we tried?
i don't know if i believe that anymore. 
   i want to. i really do. but you're just making things so hard. you've never been this way before. you were always the one, the ONLY one who understood me. but now there's this gap which i just can't bridge. i don't know if i'm doing it wrong, i don't know if you're deliberately choosing to see it wrong.
   it kills me to leave, but i have to. things can't go on this way. you can't keep yourself locked behind that door forever and blame the world for your loneliness.

Mia: Part II

   i suppose i shouldn't be reading it, but i am. i borrowed Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul from Liz. it's the one i gave her this year, for her 13th birthday. a year and 3 months is far too much, i just have to read it now, i can't wait. besides, Liz and i have read every book together, it isn't fair that we leave this out.
   Liz connected with most of it, she says. she isn't sure if i will. i'm pretty sure i won't as well but then i find this:

#epic: IV

   today is s'posed to be all about physics and nothing else. sadly, i found the following pictures and i ended up spending all morning drooling over two of the hottest blue eyed men to have ever existed:
Jared Leto
 doesn't he just make you wanna melllttttttt?

Bradley Cooper
i simply can't get enough of him.

so much for keeping my nose to the grindstone.

Hunter and Tori: Part II

   just so you know, you're running out of chances.
~ Tori
   don't ever blame me for not trying.
it's harder than you imagine, but i gave it a shot anyway. it's a pity you didn't acknowledge it. it can't be a one-sided attempt, you know. you need to put in your best as well.
   i hope you realize that before time runs out.

Amélie (:

   today is the last day i get to spend doing whatever the hell i feel like, from tomorrow it's back to keeping my nose to the grindstone again. (yes, even though my exams just ended a fortnight ago) i spent my day in school lounging in the sandpit, in the winter sun, with a couple of friends. we contemplated jumping over the wall into the neighbouring school but our senses got the better of us. once back home, i slept for an hour and then decided to watch, once again, one of my all-time favourites: Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain.
   meet Amélie:
   she reminds me of myself, it's weird.

Hunter and Tori: Part I

Dear Hunter,
   i wonder why you said all the things you did. to make me feel better? or was it you just fooling around? you knew my weakness, you used it to your advantage. you knew exactly what i needed, you knew how to say it. you pretended, swearing it was anything but pretence. every time you said you weren't lying when you told me you cared, you lied.
   it's true, i do love you. i'll admit, i want you. but i don't need your lies to make the sun shine brighter. i don't need your pretence to get me through a bad day.
   i don't need you.
~ Tori
Dear Tori,
   i dreamt about you again.
i've given up on trying to get you out of my head. every attempt is absolutely futile. besides, i don't want to. not anymore. i actually believe that we do have a chance, that things can work out if we try. i've started to believe that there is something between us. something i can't name, but something special. something that fills me with inexplicably beautiful feelings, something which keeps me going when all hope is gone.
   i need you, Tori. i've always needed the light you fill my life with. and after all these years of waiting, i think you've finally started feeling the same way too.

   Fifteen reasons why Friday, Saturday and Sunday were the best days ever.

#epic: III

   "Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life."
~ Bob Marley

   she couldn't believe how awkward things had become between them.
here was someone she'd known since forever, someone she'd been confiding in since forever, someone who'd been her best friend since forever. and yet, confessing that one little thing had changed it all.

the crazy rantings of a lovelorn damsel: Part VII

All she knew for sure was that right here and now she was falling hard and she could only pray that he was feeling the same way."

The Addams Family
remember The Addams Family? the Hand ruined my childhood.

The Little Mermaid
i'm fifteen, going on sixteen and i've never kissed a boy. (x

Finding Nemo
it may seem senseless, but i actually get what he means.

hey, You up there!

evening, folks. today we shall be discussing:

okay, before i start, i'd like you to know: the following content comes from an atheist. however, i've been taught to keep an open mind and truth is i regard religion quite highly. it's nice when people have something they can believe implicitly. also i find the stories extremely fascinating. so, my apologies if anything in this post comes off as offensive.

five things i really wanna do

it's my Dad's birthday today. i wish i could gift him more time to do the things he likes, he's always so busy with work. anyway, five things i wanna do:

Monday, 14 November 2011

every Monday afternoon should be spent listening to them (:

Alyss: overcoming obstacle A - Part I

another note from Alyss:
   a lot has been going on lately and um, the way things are going i know it's gonna go from a 'lot' to a lot LOT soon enough. so i figured it's time i need to shuffle my priorities and delete some of the so-called ones from my list.
   meet obstacle A, the first one that needs to be shoved off.
Obstacle A has been tottering on the brink of removal for one entire year. he's a very insistent little thing who is extremely hard to get rid off. just when you think he's gone, someone taps you on the shoulder and there you go! it's A again.
   but this time, things are gonna be different. drastically different. (oh, yes)
firstly, i'm starting off on a positive foot. i'm not heartbroken like i used to be in my previous attempts. i don't feel weighed down by the things i lack. pssshh, no way.
   i'm happy.
i'm happy that i know he's amazing. i'm happy to think i'll be able to limit our relationship to what it is now. i'm happy to be smart enough to walk away before it's too late, before watching him walk away with (a luckier) someone else can affect me. this time, i'm really going to let it all go. i've pined for him long enough. ONE YEAR. yeah. i know he isn't ever gonna reciprocate these feelings so this is the smartest option i have, right?
   i know this will work. i can feel the change in my bones already. but there's one thing that'll never change - he'll always be my first 'real love'. (:

five things i want right now

my brother brought this adorable little Kittycat home on Monday. the tiny furball was all cold and scared and lost in this big, big world. my mum is very, VERY anti-pets. anywho, we managed to coax her into letting us keep Kittycat till i get back to school. next week i'll be taking her to school where she'll be taken care of by the boarders. I WANT HER TO STAYYYYYY! <3

i have a thing for redheads and curls.

the weather just makes me yearrrrrrn for the warmest possible mug of hot chocolate. with lots, and LOTS of chocolate!

i miss that feeling of not knowing what the next book is going to bring, having to wait and wait for Rowling to work her magic again, looking forward to another journey through that world again. but it's all over now. and even if i do go back and read the series all over again (for the zillionth time now), it just won't be like the first time. i want to go back to the time when i first read Philosopher's Stone. i want to go back to the time when i first fell in love with Harry Potter.

it's nice and catchy. catchier than usual Coldplay music. i like it. (:
oh, and for anyone who's wondering about the meaning of  'Mylo Xyloto', here's what Chris Martin had to say (although it really doesn't shed enough light on the meaning):
"Music comes from a place we don't know," Martin told the New York Times. "It sort of comes through the fingers and toes," he continued (not sure about that, but he would know better than most). "So we came up with the idea of, what if you had musical digits, like xylo toes?" 
When pressed about 'Mylo', he responded, "It's just a great name. For anything."

festive feel! not really, no.

   i don't know why but i've never actually liked this festival much but i have nothing against watching pretty fireworks light up the sky ^^

Sunday, 23 October 2011

the end: Part I

   Friday was my last Annual Sports' Day at Cottons. it's hard to imagine that, after spending 12 long years in this institution, i'm never coming back. but anyway, a Graduating Girl's Sob Story will be poured out later (you'll have to wait for three more months, JUST THREE MORE DAMN MONTHS). for now, i'll leave you with pictures of our house mascots of the year.

Cherry 2000: Part II

   i should've posted this last Friday but i forgot. for anyone who is curious as to the fate of  Cherry 2000, i would like to say: we pulled it off. our source code runs for 123 pages and it has 102 methods. it really is quite cool. ^^
   we also finalized our theatre chain name. it's Cheshire Studios. yes, the Cheshire Cat 'Cheshire'. it just randomly clicked. no cool story behind it. oh and our logo is the Cat. (go figure)
   we did put in quite a lot of work. and there were quite a few tantrums as well. but things worked out and boy, it worked out well. i just hope, HOPE that we get something in 90s. or like, above 95. or a 100. if that's not asking for too much.

i don't know how or why, but this morning, in one corner of my underwear drawer, i found a sheet dated 27/02/2010 which had on it the following tale (written by me):

Alyss: letting go

here's another someone who resides in my head: 
she's a perpetually in love (or trying to fall out of it), super-sentimental drama queen.
see for yourself:
you know what i'd like?
i'd like to make believe that i've mastered the art of letting go.
   it isn't easy. it really isn't. and of all the people, someone like me would know this best.

Bella and Jane

don't you love it when you come across a post that talks about exactly what's been on your mind? :D
   i just finished reading Jane Eyre last night. what struck me was a slight similarity between it and the Twilight Saga. this morning, as i was going through the blogs i follow i came across a post expressing just this. so i thought i'd share. (:

Saturday, 1 October 2011

happy October, folks!

The Audrey Hepburn

there aren't many people i can say i draw inspiration from.
yesterday i realized she is one of them.
   i spent most of the day watching her movies - Roman Holiday, Breakfast At Tiffany's (Holly Golightly reminds me of myself), Always, My Fair Lady, War & Peace, Sabrina and How To Steal A Million. i do not know why, but i found her extremely fascinating. the more i watched her, the more i liked her. i Wiki-ed her, read her quotes and liked her even more. a fashion icon, a wonderful actress, and a selfless humanitarian whose beauty and elegance will never go out of style. i think she's simply amazing.
   this one's for all the Audrey Hepburn fans out there:

here's a man you'd meet in heaven

"some people don't like me. it must be because i'm cute, rich and a great player and they envy me." 
thus spake the man.
  i was like, "yeeeah. so why exactly did i fall for this arrogant fuck?"
i was YouTubing Cristiano Ronaldo. one video led to another and BAM.
i now know why.

prepare to be astounded.

Saturday, 10 September 2011


   don't ask me why, but for the past few days this guy's been featuring in my dreams. and for some inexplicable reason i find myself thinking of him all the time. especially the way the sun shines on his thick brown locks in this video:
i remember the first time i'd watched this video - i didn't think much of him. not really my type. but i'd Googled him anyway - he looked like a girl in all his pictures.
   but i don't know why, lately... i think i'm attracted to him.

Wednesday, 7 September 2011


   my exams start on Friday but no, that didn't stop me from watching a whole bunch of random (romantic) movies and wasting all my time.
most of them were pretty forgettable, somehow this stayed with me:

when life goes bleh: Part II

   when life goes bleh, you read soppy romantic novels a.k.a a Nicholas Sparks' piece, and watch soppy romantic movies a.k.a a movie based on a Nicholas Sparks' piece.
   my pick today was The Notebook (for the zillionth time).
 i read it AND watched the movie (corniness much?) but anyway, they had the desired effect: reduced to me to a sniffly, puffy-eyed, in-love-with-love-but-oh-so-lonely-girl (well, actually i am that most of the time, minus the sniffling and puffiness of eyes).
   here are the bits that got to me the most:

when life goes bleh :s

 here's what today's been like so far:

Thursday, 1 September 2011

thank you, Alanis.

"I've spent so long firmly looking outside me,
I've spent so much time living in survival mode.
But this won't work as well as the way it once did,
'Cause I want to decide between survival and bliss.
And though I know who I'm not, I still don't know who I am,
But I know I won't keep on playing the victim.

These precious illusions in my head did not let me down when I was defenseless,
And parting with them is like parting with invisible best friends."

the crazy rantings of a lovelorn damsel: Part IV

   once again, i ask you to bear with me. my mind is seriously effed up these days.
before i start off with my bullshit, let me give you some background:
   it's been 2 months since i joined my tuition. 2 great months. and i'd like to say: PEOPLE WERE WRONG. tuition isn't a downright pain in the ass like they said it would be. i actually like it! :D
apart from doing better than ever in hindi, i've also found a whole bunch of nice peeps to hang out with. today, i'll introduce you to two of them:
Tyler and Gina (names changed, obviously)

Thursday, 18 August 2011

not today, not for a while.

scene from a really nice movie i watched this gloomy afternoon:

from one non-believer to another

welcome to another one of those days where i skipped school because i wanted to study.
not really. i just wanted to sleep, sleep and sleep some more. (blame it on the weather) but i'm proud to say that, unlike last time, i actually DID study. chemical bonding, refraction of light and spectrum. :D
anyway, to the point:

Wednesday, 17 August 2011


   i could write an entire post to articulate what's on my mind right now, but this just makes the job easier:
"I used to think you were the one,
Now I'm sick of thinking anything at all."
which brings me to today's topic - music i listen to when things just won't go right and no amount of make believing can get me anywhere.

the crazy rantings of a lovelorn damsel: Part III

sorry, i know i'm becoming increasingly weird these days. bear with me?
