How do you know if you’re in love?


Sometimes knowing if you are in love is hard, especially if it is your first time. Here are eighteen ways to tell if you are falling in love which I obtained from the internet.
1. You are comfortable. and secure in your relationship. You trust that your partner won’t hurt you and there is no need of suspicion or jealousy.
2. You have remained together through good times and bad.
3. Thoughtful things are done just because it makes both of you feel good.
4. Neither of you make sacrifices, only compromises.
5. Your significant other has told you of their deep feelings, and they are returned.
6. Your affections for your partner make you feel special and good about yourself.
7. When there is a fight, you usually make up after only a few hours and agree that nothing is more important than both of you expressing your true feelings, even if they cause conflict.
8. You and your partner feel no need to test each others feelings or loyalties.
9. You can be yourself when with your partner more so than anyone else.
10. You’ve forgotten your ex.
11. You can’t stop thinking about your partner.
12. You care about your significant other more than anything.
13. You find your partners quirks charming.
14. You have great chemistry.
15. You don’t notice others as much.
16. You love spending time together.
17. Other priorities take a backseat.
18. You start thinking about your future together.

Who am I?



Isn’t it such a cliché, seemingly easy question to answer? Truth be told, I am still seeking the answer to this question. And just when I thought I was the only one to be asking this, the rcent course that I went for proved me wrong.

In the middle of the course, the lecturer popped the question; Who am I?

Many attempted to answer the question. Needless to say, there were many variations to answer this question. Some attempted to cut pieces of pictures from magazines and told the rest that those pictures represent them. Some crumpled papers, formed shapes using papers to represent them. There were many explanations to this little creation in the attempt to answer the deceivingly simple question: Who am I? And these are the ones that stick in my mind

1. In life, I always tried to make do with what I was given. Nothing is too simple, up to the point that it cannot be used. Bad experience, good experience, I tried to learn from them .I think in life, one must be humble enough to accept things as they are. And that is what I am.- quoted from Raimy.

2. I make this empty shape with this paper. I didn’t really think what I wanted to do with it. I just kept folding until I get this shape. I guess that is who I am in life. I don’t usually look at the end, I just go through the process, and make the end destination a surprise. That is what I seek in life. The chance to be surprised. That is who I am.- Janice

3. Life is confusion. I am confused, and therefore, I pieced these things together, without planning any forms or shapes. Cos I never planned for the future. I am still quite confused as to what I want in life- Quoted from Sing

And last but not least, a quote from your truly,

“I am still stumped whenever I am asked this question. To me, this is no one definition to it. People always change; every minute, every second. One moment, you’re happy, and the next moment, you’re sad. Each different moment, you’re a different person. To make matter worst, there are times, when you tried to mask things to appear to be something you’re not. I am always guilty of that, you know; trying to appear confident, when I am all insecure inside; trying to appear all knowing when I have no idea to what I was doing; trying to appear fine when I am hurting inside. You know what I mean.

And thus, I can never quite answer the question as to who am I? That is if, I try to micro manage everything and look too closely to details.

But I guess, if one learns to look at the bigger picture, he/ she will realise that those are the different facets and parts that makes him/her a person. The insecurity, hurt, appearing confident, appearing fine- those are all parts of me, as a person. I am who I am. It just takes a little bit of time, to uncover all parts of me”.

And speaking of looking at the big pictures, and make do with what you currently have, I realised that even after numerous break ups and 28 years of living, I usually failed in these two areas. I still remember being all upset in the flyer at the start of this year. I pulled a long face when we missed the fireworks, even though he was trying his best to make do of what we currently have.

Sweet, if you’re reading this, I just want you to know that I am sorry. I screwed up. I didn’t mean to hurt you. I love you so much. Please be mine again…

Did the Angels Cry for us?



I wonder if the angels cried for us
When we part on that very morning
It seems to be raining every other day
since the time when we said goodbye

I thought I knew what I was doing
I thought I'd made the right move
But why does it hurt so much
to see you walked away without looking back

As the cliches went on
No sparks could fly from just one stone
No sound could reverbrate from just one hand
I wouldn't be able to make it through without you

My world was serene with you by my side
There is the occassional storm now and then
but we have always been able to weather it through
we made it good for the past two years, we did

I don't know what went wrong
what used to feel right,
now that feeling's gone.
I'm feeling miserable,
when i should have felt joy
My chest feels heavy
and i couldn't breathe
How ironic it is
since now that i have space
I wish you were here
to fill up my life
I'm missing your embrace,
I'm missing your kisses,
I'm missing your warmth
Baby, i miss you.





Angels Cry- Mariah Carey, feat Ne-Yo

I shouldn't have walked away
I would've stayed if you say
We could've made
Everything ok
But we just

Threw the blame back and forth
We treated love like a sport
The final blow hit so low
I'm still on the ground

I couldn't have prepared myself for this fall
Shattered in pieces curled on the floor
Supernatural love conquers all
'Member we used to touch the sky
And

Lightning don't strike
The same place twice
When you and I
Said goodbye
I felt the angels cry

True love's a gift
But we let it drift
In a storm
Every night
I feel the angels cry

C'mon babe can't our love be revived
Bring it back and we gon' make it right
I'm on the edge just tryin' to survive
As the angels cry

I thought we were forever and always
You were serenity, you took out the bad days
No one treated you right, but it was okay
I did something stupid, and you'd still stay with me
But you could only call for so long
During the one you claim love's rung
Before too much is enough
you look up and find your love's gone

And we were so good together
How come we could not weather
This storm, it';s just too bad
But why did we say goodbye


Cause lightning don't strike
The same place twice
When you and I
Said goodbye
I felt the angels cry
True love's a gift
But we let it drift
In a storm
Every night
I feel the angels cry

Come on baby can our love be revived
Bring it back and we're gon' make it right
I'm on the edge just trying to survive
As the angels cry

Baby I'm missin' you - I..
Don't allow love to lose - don't let our love
We gotta ride it through - uu
I'm reaching for you - baby im missing you

Baby I'm missin' you - u
Don't allow love to lose - u
We gotta ride it through - we gonna ride
I'm reaching for you - hey and i' promise youu

Lightning don't strike
The same place twice
When you and I
Said goodbye
Felt the angels cry

True love's a gift
But we let it slip
In a storm
Every night
I feel the angels cry
