I have so many things left undone

Over tea today with my colleagues, Colleague S was commenting about how I can be a good golf player, cos of my height(apparently height = momentum = more distance for the ball). Anyway, I'm not very interested in golf, as many of my colleagues are.

I told him what I'd really like to learn is fencing. Ooh lala. I like. Then Colleague Y overheard us, and in a quite reproachful tone, said,'Huh? Why you wanna learn so much? Have a kid and learn how to take care of the kid la!'. To which, I was quite offended, and snapped back at him,'Why? I must have kids cos everyone around me is having kids isit?'(in my buay-song tone+face).

I figured, I have my own plans for having kids. But right now is really not a time, cos having a kid means that both parents need really to want to sacrifice their time to nurture and take care of the little one. But, I dont think me nor my SO is ready for that yet. I have plans to achieve what I will in 2 years time, while she has her own stuff to worry about(at the current moment). So there.

Dunno why I got so pissed off. Maybe he makes me feel like I'm an ignorant kid. Well, I'm a kid at heart, and ignorant of many things in the world(I should read this more often), but definitely not 'ignorantly naive'. If you get what I mean.

Oh, theres a another link I wanna share. I think this is great at eliminating negative thoughts, which I think everybody should have less of, especially me, if I were to achieve my target.

I wanted to cry

Drove on ECP/AYE this morning, and I saw a dead kitten on lane 1.

Immediately, I winced, and tears formed in my eyes.

Somehow, I imagine the pain that he/she went through when she was struck by a car, I can feel the pain, and I am saddened by it. Which also explains I try not to kill ants/mice/etc. cos I feel the pain when I kill them. Imagine how it feels to be squashed by something bigger than you.

Another thought, how did the kitten get up there? its in the middle of the expressway?! I hope its not some sick bastard who left it there. If thats the case, I hope he gets his just desserts(I wanted to say something mean, but decided against it)

Thats another reason why i cant watch shows like 'Deep Blue Sea', cos i feel the pain when the shark bites into the person, and I get sick of that. Eww.

Hmm.. I scored horribly in Advanced, but the good thing is I got 100% for the first 3. Hmm. Maybe I'm stuck with Secondary School English. :p
