About 20 years ago...
1. I wasn't born
2. 16 years ago, some hotel collapsed in Singapore in March. 4 months before I was born.
3. It was the 80's.
4. My parents were married. I think.

About 10 years ago...
1. I was six years old.
2. I wore Snoopy clothes
3. and looked like the biggest geek ever.
4. I came to Singapore from Taiwan. (I was born here, but we moved to Taiwan where we stayed for a few years. I think Mom wanted me and my brother to learn English, so we came back again.)

About 5 years ago...
1. I had my first crush.
2. I was a damn good swimmer.
3. I was in primary school.
4. and very innocent.

About 2 years ago...
1. Can we say teenage angst?
2. Like, serious teenage angst?
3. To the point where I believed I was suicidal?
4. Ian dumped me. As a friend. Now I hate who I was 2 years ago. I read my diaries, and go, "Shut the fuck up, you stupid poseur!"

About 1 year ago....
1. I almost didn't pass Secondary 3, but I made it.
2. I started to doubt my friendship with the friends I'm with now.
3. I became a movie-nut.
4. I discovered Jim Carroll, and my dumb poetry improved ever since.

1. I am alive, and kickin', and hanging on.
2. I'm getting more and more sentimental.
3. I'm trying to get my defense up again.
4. And embrace myself forever and ever.

Okay. Today's my dad's birthday. Went to a Chinese restaurant for dinner. I wore the capri pants I bought in December, and I can't believe this, but it was actually tight. It wasn't when I tried it on in December! Bloody hell. I'm going to do 50 sit-ups every day from now on. I loved Dad's birthday cake. It was the mango one we got for Yunnie on her birthday. Yep. I'm tired, so I shall go. np: "Yellow" by Coldplay in my head.
