"Unsettling" is the word of the day. i felt like things around me are going faster than i am; work demands results faster than i can produce them. perhaps it's just that i'm not ready to go back to school yet.

went overseas (erhm.. just to malaysia :p) last weekend, and the feeling of warmth it brought was unexpected. i really felt at home =)

despite my wish to remain anonymous, i've just enabled comments on this page. since no one close to me knows the existence of this blog, it will be ages before someone is going to use the comment feature, or until blogger.com starts charging; at which point i will say "au revoir!" ;)

right after my last post, something happened. suddenly i'm seeing someone now. strange... life is so unpredictable.

i've been looking for escapes, exit clauses in life. and what made me say "why not?" to this guy, was (besides all the good things about him) the need to exercise my staying power. i can't run away forever.

How do you expect a self-proclaimed "private" person to publish her thoughts somewhere which will be accessible by the whole wide world?

Throw a girl out of her family home, put her through Singapore-styled education system, work her forty-eight hours a day or until she fell asleep exhausted (whichever is earlier)... Work can be fun, meeting people can be enriching, but on most days it's the people we go home to that keep us going. The closest thing to a family member she has, is her faithful little vanilla linux box, waiting for her at the end of the day.

Gosh, I'm tired. Not to mention, feeling extremely strange. I've just launched these little blobs of private thoughts to the world! *gulp*

My, my.. I've arrived in the blog world from the other side. And what a tough little sentry you have there; I must have tried about fifty usernames before I finally get one.

"LinuxMonkey". Cute? Nah, it just describes my day job. (And my part time work at night, too.)
