It's nice to know...

The meaning of "tempest" in thefreedictionary.com was stated as "1. A violent windstorm, frequently accompanied by rain, snow, or hail. 2. Furious agitation, commotion, or tumult; an uproar." Which is a pretty apt way of describing my life for 2009 thus far, and it' s only been Jan!

The past week was also filled with work stuff with the first week of tutorials, as well as embarking on thesis feedback and rewrites. Had to think through a lot of stuff and was also dealt with a disappointment on a weekend. Took some time out, gained some perspectives and I'm back with renewed faith and drive.
Think the following sums up the people I have which I shld be thankful for. A list for me to refer to when life could be better.

A Nice To Know... list.


1) It's nice to know that I have someone whom I can go back and get a bear hug from, no words or questions. Just a big, comforting, reassuring hug.


2) It's nice to know that I have someone who will be there for me no matter what happens in the next two months.

3) It's nice to know that I have one more someone for whom I want to better myself for.

4) It's nice to know that I have one more reason to wake up and make the best out of my day.

5) It's nice to know that I have someone to hook little fingers with.

6) It's nice to know that I've someone to tell me to be upfront and tell my guy that I need him when I need him instead of trying to be headstrong.


7) It's nice to know that I've someone-s to msg when I receive bad news and whom will call to check if I need to talk.


8) It's nice to know that I've someone who will keep waking up in the middle of the night when I've had a rough night to check if I'm alright, even if he's super tired.


A big thank you to A, S, C, and esp JR. I spent the whole week drained only to realise the difference 24 hrs can make. Love you.


And Happy Yuan Xiao Jie... which officially marks the end of the Lunar New Year celebration!






So Nice - Bebel Gilberto

Someone to hold me tight
That would be very nice
Someone to love me right
That would be very nice
Someone to understand
Each little dream in me
Someone to take my hand
And be a team with me

So nice, life would be so nice
If one day I'd find
Someone who would take my hand
And samba through life with me

Someone to cling to me
Stay with me right or wrong
Someone to sing to me
Some little samba song
Someone to take my heart
And give his heart to me
Someone who's ready to
Give love a start with me

Oh yeah, that would be so nice
I could see you and me, that would be nice

Someone to hold me tight
That would be very nice
Someone to love me right
That would be very nice
Someone to understand
Each little dream in me
Someone to take my hand
To be a team with me
So nice, life would be so nice
If one day I'd find
Someone who would take my hand
And samba through life with me

Someone to cling to me
Stay with me right or wrong
Someone to sing to me
Some little samba song
Someone to take my heart
And give his heart to me
Someone who's ready to
Give love a start with me

Oh yes, that would be so nice
Shouldn't we, you and me?
I can see it will be nice...
