Listening to: Voria Monopatia - Stelios Petrakis

It has been cold, wet, and dreary. Listening to Stelios Petrakis makes it all the more depressing. It's such a fitting song for this sombre, starless night! Stelios Petrakis' music never fails to move me...

 I'm clearing my 50 hours OT. I will only return to work next Wednesday. I should be grateful for this opportunity to finish up work. Parents' Meet will be on the 29th :( I'm slightly worried.

Anyway, I can't wait to start a fresh page. Parents' Meet will be my last day. After that, I'll get a month's break before I begin again. I hope the trip to the rainforest will help me clear my mind and revive what (I think) I've lost in the midst of chaos. Perhaps the only thing I'm not looking forward to is leeches. I still find them repulsive even after the previous experience. Dear leeches around the world (not those with arms and legs), gomen'nasai!

Recently, I have found that I have not gotten over past hurtful incidences. It didn't occur to me that I'd still feel this hurt. It's strange. When you forgive someone, you still won't be able to forget what happened. I think it's a test of one's sincerity in that act of forgiveness. Alhamdulillah I am feeling hurt but I will not act on it. We must remind ourselves of our own mistakes against others before we declare the hurt that someone else has brought upon us. It keeps us humble.
