Not Perfect

“This is my brain
And I live in it
It’s made of love
And bad song lyrics
It’s tucked away behind my eyes
Where all my screwed up thoughts can hide
Cos God forbid I hurt somebody
And the weirdest thing about a mind
Is that every answer that you find
Is the basis of a brand new cliché

This is my brain
And it’s fine
It’s where I spend the vast majority of my time
It’s not perfect
But it’s mine”

I know he’s a comedian, but I swear this song is exactly why I love Tim Minchin. Watch it, see if it doesn’t get you smiling.

a little birthday note to @overjet

 

Hey, sis. 🙂

How’s it going up there, you partying it up in heaven or something? Ya I know you’re not much of a partygoer, nevertheless I’m pretty sure you’re having fun enjoying your time. Pretty sure it’s heaps better than all the big mess down here, right?

It sure has been pretty lonely (with extra mellowness at times) without you here, but hey. Whatever’s best for you, right? It’s what you always told me: We can’t be selfish, can’t expect to get everything we want. In the end, God’s plan always takes its course.

One thing for sure, there is no way I’m forgetting you. Not ever. I’m still trying to be a better person, and I will not stop, only in the hopes that you’d save me a spot up there, the way you always do, and we’ll meet again once I cross over.

There will be nights when I can’t sleep, moments when I wish you’re still here with me, nostalgic times remembering how you’d somehow always end up being near me, but I just know this for sure: You’re never really gone, I know you’re still watching me, somewhere somehow.

Sisters, guardian angels, what’s the diff, right? 😉

Rest well, sis.
Don’t worry about me or all of us here, I’ve got everything covered. We always have each other’s backs, and we still do. Will always do.

Wub you, Bub.

“Wish me luck, as you wave me goodbye!”

 

There’s always a first in everything.
This time, oddly, it’s the first goodbye.

So yeah, after 3 years and 5 months, I’m leaving my current workplace. My rookie gig. The biggest part of my life for the past few years. It’s finally time for a change of scene, for a fresh start, for new things.

Albeit a little early, seeing that I’m not actually signing out ’til next Tuesday, last Friday was especially touching to see that the coworkers gave me a little surprise sending off party. With a little good luck gift and a lot of well wishes, I’m pretty sure I’m ending this gig on a high note.

Dear bosses and coworkers, I really can’t thank you enough. Seriously. Thank you for putting up with me for so long, and thank you for teaching me so, so much just about everything.

Here’s praying that God blesses all of you.. as long as you people be nice to whoever takes up the empty spot I’m leaving. Haha. So long, you one big happy circus 🙂
