Youngest kid of six with an inferiority and black sheep complex, but determined that God saves not just his soul to heaven but the remainder of his manic-depressive life, so others won't say he became a Christian and remained a jerk.
i won't be transparent before i'm opaque. and you'll get to know me starting from the small things: who my favourite bands are. what kind of movies i like. who are my heroes.
I’m convinced that when confronted with sincere, real love, the Jesus factor will become obvious. But let’s not plant the cross before we carry it. I’m not trying to con you.
Some dreams are meant to be achieved. I know that. But maybe other dreams are meant to drive us, privately. Never known to anyone but ourselves.
It is a sadness that, when choosing between crying and sighing, will choose sighing. I'd almost say that melancholy is being sad about sadness itself.
On memory and nostalgia
It saddens me when life moves forward and people decide that certain things are worth forgetting.
I've learnt that the word irregardless is filed as a non-standard word in the English language. That's a lexicographer's way of saying it's not a real word.
Crowds are fickle things. So when we stand in the thousands and cry against the present government, do we know who we're actually crying for?
People always want the best for themselves. But I want to sometimes take second or third or fourth best, just so that the loser down the road doesn't always have to come in last. It must feel like shit to always come in last.
On growing old
Leasehold property make me feel sad. It doesn't matter how old the family photos are that you put on your wall. It's your family but it's not really your wall.
I ask you, if God loves everyone, and if God is also incapable of loving evil, how can there be such a thing as an evil man?
On a daily basis

LAST TO KNOW
In almost every sphere that i live in, i'm usually the last to know things.
by things, i guess i mean gossip. and rumours. and stuff that falls in the category of word going around. by and large, i just don't have the habit of asking that first question, and even if the topic crops up, i don't ask that second question - the one that cues people to start letting it rip.
because of this, it takes me a lot longer than other people to find out that that someone has tendered their resignation, or that x and y are now xy, or that pq are now p and q. sometimes, because of my lack of initiative to bother digging deeper, i never know things till it's very old news.
i actively made myself this way because i really don't like to hear gossip and people close to me probably know i won't give them the response they're looking for.
but it's also annoying to always be the last to know.
