Currently listening to: A Kiss To Build A Dream On - Steve Tyrell
Well, stayed up all night doing that blasted UNIX assignment and... lets leave it at that.
Only managed about four hours sleep again so i really wasn't too prepared for such a hectic day. Went to see the doctor again in the early afternoon, did some gym, and then went for the Toastmasters thing. Zamil didn't make it though - too tired since he just got back from Singapore this morning after watching the Andrea Bocelli concert down there. Apparently it was 'simply brilliant', so i shall now proceed in kicking my own backside, which is a harder action than it looks mind you, for not taking up his offer and accompanying him on that trip. Next time buddy! ;)
Toastmasters went well. In other words i didn't get called upon (although i almost did!) to make any of those truly nerve wracking impromptu speeches. Chen Hoe did though, something about what he would "...think about if he had just returned from a [Malaysian] National Service camp." Bit hesitant but i thought he did well in comparing it to the feelings he personally felt when he attended various training camps (such as the MUISS one), although there were one or two noticeable pauses... Chin up fella!
Then again i should talk... ;p
Went out for dinner with him around the Sungai Wang area after the meeting, and then listened to the (rather atrocious) live music at First Cup. Performers with sore throats who go ahead with their singing should be shot. Nice location though, with some pretty interesting night spots - must consider hanging around that area more often. Had a long and interesting discussion with him on the blog post i am currently (unsuccessfully) trying to type - basically, as i previously mentioned, its just a rant on the social problems which people and friends my age seem to be having. It was nice to see that i'm not the only one out there with thoughts such as these - indeed i know a few people out there who have even approached me in recent days to discuss the issue with me (with one even asking for a good recommendation for a shrink). Its a lot harder to write the rant now that i've got a few new perspectives from Chen Hoe, but the bottomline is that its a rather complex subject all in all, one which i'd rather not write 10,000 words about (i'd rather let Boon's thesis take care of that one), and it doesn't really help that one tends to have a habit of forgetting recent conversations at an alarmingly fast rate... Still, i think its worthwhile stating - if at a later date.
Oh, in case you're wondering Chen Hoe has been diligently working on his site/blog. Its been a long time coming (and under heavy frenzied construction, or even intermittently offline - be warned) but for what its worth all i'll say is "FINALLY!". ;p
In other news Abe (or Erez) has finally gotten off his ass to get his blog back online, with a new entry even! Andalleh, andalleh, andalleh indeed. And - dare i say it - he's even becoming a little more decent in regards to women (his claim)... Its almost enough to make one believe in God. ;p
On the other hand i'm thinking of moving in the other direction (ironic eh Abe?). ;)
Blame it on boredom, insanity, or a curious state of thinking but i'm suddenly picqued by trying out new experiences of late - most specifically of the opposite sex. And why not? I've never been very good around women, or very active in the sexual sense (not necessarily physical either mind you) so why not give it a shot? What does it feel like i wonder and better yet, can i pull it off? Mind you, i'm not referring to finding a relationship here and no close friends of mine shall ever be involved in my (foolish i suppose) little whim. Yes, it does sound a little sad, shallow - and of low character even (although i try to refrain from saying that outright, i don't think i'm one to judge moral standing) - i suppose but why the hell not? How would i know? I only seek to experience and try so as not to regret these things once youth has passed me by. An 'experiment' through hurtful trial and error if you please. But mainly just because the opportunity to try such things is readily enough at hand, and who knows? Maybe the knowledge will come in handy sometime in the future. Maybe not.
Now that i have the motive, all i need is the opportunity (and er, courage + skill i suppose?). Methinks that much pain and embarassment will be encountered along the way though thanks to my woefully inadequate and naive understanding of the opposite sex... ;)
Ah well, maybe i will maybe i won't.
Well, yes i'm that bored i suppose. Comments? Opinions? ;)
Don't mind me - the pills kicked in a while back. I'm outta here.
