The long overdue missed connections post

February 18, 2013

1

I say long overdue because I was supposed to post this on Valentine’s Day. Strike One on timeliness. Anyway, I decided to work on this post now because I am bored and I don’t want to read any of my readings yet. My brain just keeps shutting down for some reason. Things have been too […]

That’s a song by The Courteeners. I’ve been planning to make this my 19th birthday song for so long. I prefer playing it when I’m celebrating my birthday happily, as birthdays should be celebrated.

The results release was seriously anti-climactic. I just wrote a blog post earlier re: my hopelessly lonely life and then BAM, the news about the UPCAT results went kapow all over the cyberworld.

Last week, Friday in particular, my self-esteem got hit by a sixteen-wheeler truck. It was about time, too. I wasn’t feeling depressed lately and this change in routine was starting to scare me. I was starting to think that I was going to pull off a Donnie Darko and move to a parallel universe until […]
