1 MORE DAY

So what have we learnt today?

I have found a new hobby. I just sit and giggle. Laugh myself silly at myself being myself. I felt like I needed to do so. So I went out to my happy corner and giggled.

I don't think people will actually find out I have brought my little parrot Pepe back to life. In fact, he's sitting just beside me on the table, nibbling my mouse. He's prompting me to get up and stop being captain slow and do something about my prom date.

So I did some research, I read up about her. They way she describes things, the way she walks, the way she looks at the doorbell as she presses it. The way she hates vegetables, the way she flaunts her eye lashes, the way sometimes she sees little pets and squeek like a little girl. The way she cries, the way she experiences riding a bicycle, the way I will want to hold her hand.

And butterflies prevail in my stomach, I'm just so nervous right now.

Oh, this is torture.

That's what we've learnt today.

So what have we learnt today?

Things are very different now. You know the feeling when you just crawled through a dark and damp cave and into the moonlight? A little different from escaping into the sunlight - it's not so overwhelming. But still you come out of the cave and breathe the fresh air.

Who picks up flowers in the month of May?

You all know I can't seem to perceive colours the way many of you do, and that to me is sometimes a disadvantage or in certain rare cases - an advantage. So if you see me that night with weird colour combinations, please don't laught at me. That might/should not happen; I have a QC expert who scrutinizes my every single detail.

I'm sleepy.

For the lack of being prepared for this post, I shall end now.

That's what we've learnt today.

3 MORE DAYS

So what have we learnt today?

It's freezing out here. I'm at the pinacle of fear and my boots are shaking. Nothing can describe the cold shuddering touch of maturity. I can see the stars clearer now.

And as I climb.

As I climb I feel vertigo.

I look back down at the feet of the mountain I'm about to conquer, at the place where it all began, I wonder. And I wonder at the amazing feats of punishment and joy I had to endure. Down below I felt safe - protected from the harsh winds. Up here, up here is a different scenario.

I feel numbness. It's cold, and I'm freezing my butt off.

There is only that much humiliation and baby powder a man can endure. And believe me, I thank the mountain for it. Look at it this way: you want to conquer the mountain but at the end all you do is conquer yourself. Which is a rather large progress in my life.

And now that I'm reaching the peak, I see more peaks.

And I vow to climb them all.

One at a time.

One at a time.

That's what we've learnt today.

4 MORE DAYS

So what have we learnt today?

I'm excited.

To say I am cool about it would mean I'm a hypocrite. I can't breathe well everytime I think about it and I can't get it out of my mind. There are times when I just wish it was over and there are times when I just wish I can relive the experiences again and again.

The time when I asked.

Even now my heart pounds and I cannot describe if I have done something so important for my social life as this.

Maybe not as much as when Revenge of the Sith was released and I was dressing up for it. But that was me being a kid. Now, I'm trying hard to be a man. And in the meantime try to act like I've got some sense.

The pressure is killing me. But I love it.

I still can't believe I'm doing this.

That's what we've learnt today.
