Plans. As you grow older, you realize that your life deviates further and further from it.

I like the word "indolence." It makes my laziness seem classy.

My blog has finally got comment links and blog titles appearing on each post.

Much thanks to Sin Wei for helping. ^^

My HTML skill still needs improvement.

ARRRRGHH!! Blogger's block.

After about 3 blog entries of photos and nothing else, my writing skill has suddenly deteriorated.

Reminder to self: Do. Not. Be. Lazy. To. Update. Blog. With. More. Substantial. Stuff.

Googled this. Who doesn't love quirky motivational posters?

Was just reading Patrick's latest post about... stuff.

Which kept me thinking about, you know, life. And how much I haven't achieved yet. And my goal. And how I see myself in ten years. And how I had many plans but not one has been successful. And so on and so forth.

 You read stories about how 15-year-olds are becoming millionaires, 6-year-olds doing computer programming, 15-year-old book authors, 10-year-old professional pianists... And you think, I could be anyone of them. I just... I don't know what happened.

Then we do the easiest thing there is.

Blame fate.

I have had many plans of my own - earning revenues from a site of my own, publishing a book, creating my own music... none of them worked.

Not that I didn't attempt. On the way, it just... got too hard, I guess.

And then, as you grow older, you come to the sad realization that you probably aren't going to achieve anything extraordinary and you decide to just go with the flow - study hard, graduate from university with a decent degree, get a job, and hope you get lucky and earn lots of money from it. 


I shall continue on the book I started and abandoned 6 months ago.

Lets just hope I'll be serious about it this time.
