How do I let you go....?

People never knew just how much he meant to me
They knew him by name, but it's still not the same

His eyes so bright, his smile so wide
I hope he knew that I was right there by his side

Now he's gone far far away
His beautiful face continues to haunt me even today

Why does God take the best of the one's we love
Up to that great big world up above?

His memory will never leave
His kind and gentle smile will always be seen

I'll never forget you, never let you leave my mind
Let me remind you that i love you, just one more time.

Closed-minded

Someone once told me something a while ago... a long while ago... I woke up today morning with those words creating havoc in my head... Funny that I remember those lines word for word...

"You were so nice to me when I was having my problems, but now that you're having yours, there seems to be nothing that I can do for you. You're all locked up in that little world of yours, and when I try knocking on the door, if I'm lucky you look up for a second and then go back inside."

It's quite a distressing thought... Do I really shut people off like that? Doesn't that pretty much amount to being dishonest? I mean, there are some people in your life that you share everything with or atleast they share everything with you and expect (rightfully so!) that you do the same but you don't... or can't. Thats not right... It just isn't.

You think you are an open book but then you realise that the only time that is the case is when you seek out advice for something you have already made up your mind about. Then the whole exercise is pointless, isn't it? Damn... that makes me the most closed-minded person I know!!!

I got placed!!!


Oh and yes... most importantly- I have officially been placed... I have successfully managed to fool someone into hiring me as their summer intern... Ernst and Young... here i come!!! :-)

I wanted this so badly... I think someone out there heard me... Ro, could it have been you?

Last-minute Panic

I love Calvin... he is the most brilliant child on the planet... I mean, how can he not be when he comes up with stuff like this:

“-You can't just turn on creativity like a faucet. You have to be in the right mood.
-What mood is that?
-Last-minute panic.”

It's so true. Like when our submission was due at 5 the other day. We had been starting at that damn research topic on my screen for hours but to no avail. We couldn't even come up with the brief... forget about the literature review and detailed friggin' approach!!! And added to this is the fact that I don't have a creative bone in my body, so I wasn't helping at all!!! But then suddenly at 4 things start to get a lot clearer... We knew exactly what had to be done and how the project had to be approached... it's like the clouds parted and all that jazz :-)

And the funniest thing is that when I read that report now, it sounds really really good, all well-researched and all... I can't believe it... And all it took was some good old "Last-minute Panic"
