Hiatus |hʌɪˈeɪtəs|

hiatus |hʌɪˈeɪtəs|
noun ( pl. -tuses ) [usu. in sing. ]
a pause or gap in a sequence, series, or process

After a short break - a year to be exact. I'm trying to get back to blogging.

I was just looking through this blog and noticed that I've blogged since 2005. Just seemed like a waste to not continue.

Hope I can keep this up. Hang around you never know what will happen :)

Disorder |dɪsˈɔːdə|

disorder |dɪsˈɔːdə|
a state of confusion : tiresome days of mess and disorder.

Just read an article about foster parents adopting children with some emotional disorder problems. To cut the story short, the foster parents finally made a breakthrough with the child by accommodating him. Really touching story,, tugged at the heart-strings.

Was a usual day for me. Took the lift down to get to the car. The lift stopped at the 13th level (can't really remember which level it was, best guess is 13). A lady is outside the and she presses the lift button to make sure the door is open. She yells some unintelligible words at someone - I can't see who. Looks at me, presses the button again and yells.

Her domestic helper appears and passes this peculiar lady a set of key. But that is not the weirdest thing. The domestic helper apologies. The lady steps into the lift, back facing me, and the door closes. Me? I'm just standing there - clueless. Go figure. Wonder who are the people with the real disorder.

All this time you were pretending
So much for my happy ending

Amber |ˈambə|

amber |ˈambə|
hard translucent fossilized resin produced by extinct coniferous trees of the Tertiary period, typically yellowish in color.

• a honey-yellow color typical of this substance.
• a yellow light used as a cautionary signal between green for “go” and red for “stop” : the lights were at amber.

Amber has been used in jewelry since antiquity. It is said that the clarity of a piece of amber determines its value. Its usually normal to find pieces of amber but they usually contain impurities.

We all have a certain perspective of life. We all like to believe that we have a crystal clear picture of what we see. Unfortunately, we see what we want. Its the impurities that block out the things that we don't see (perhaps we choose to hide behind the things we do not want to see). If and only if we could see through that crystal clear amber. Lets call a spade a spade and deal with it.

Yesterday a piece of me died. And along with that, a piece of impurity chipped away. I look forward to the day, when all the impurities are chipped away, leaving a crystal clear amber. Maybe, just maybe, this world can be a better place.

stupor |ˈstjuːpə|
noun [in sing. ]

I've got a midnight bottle gonna drink it down
A one way ticket takes me to the times we had before
When everything felt so right
If only for tonight
A midnight bottle gonna ease my pain
From all these feelings driving me insane
I think of you and everything's all right
If only for tonight

Got a midnight bottle
Drifting off into the candlelight
Where I can find you any old time
Midnight bottle I forgot how good it felt to be in a dream
just like you had me
'Cause lately I've been stumbling feels like I'm recovering
But I think it's only for tonight

Know your name And go your own way

Calm down
Deep breaths
And get yourself dressed instead
Of running around
And pulling all your threads and
Breaking yourself up

If it's a broken part, replace it
But, if it's a broken arm then brace it
If it's a broken heart then face it

And hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way
Hold your own
Know your own name
And go your own way

Thanks for being there for me when I needed you buddy.
