one kind act

It's kinda funny that when I look at my blog, I ALWAYS end up thinking " woah, how the f^ck did I manage to actually write all this crap? "
I met up with this school friend after a really looong time... and it was nice and all.... you know how everyone fills up slam books and stuff on the last days of school and everything? yea, well this friend of mine has literally been in the same class as I have for like all of the 12 years of school.... I still remember when she handed me her slam book and asked me to write, I went completely blank. like seriously blank... and I did want to write.. I just couldn't think of what to though ..and I managed to fill in a couple of words (which was silly on my part cuz we'd been friends for so long and I couldn't even make a good memory in there) ....
and now, I'm the same person who writes on this blog.
Bigtime changes, huh? I can't say why... but I kinda write here for no specific reason, and without thinking it out a lot... When I do start to pre-decide what to write, my way of writing seems ,awkward, somehow.
So hey, sorry about my lame entry in the slam book back then, Anne...

Moving on,
You ever had a stranger touch you in a nice way?

OK, I might wanna rephrase that, sounds kinky. SO, Have you ever been emotionally moved by a complete stranger? If yes, then you'd know how good and nice the world feels for a little while after, right? If no, oh well, maybe I'll have to come touch you in the nice way sometime then. (ummm...emotionally!)
Well, this happened to me today in the bus while coming back home after meeting Anne ..... Its something really small, so even if you think it's pretty lame and inconsequential, keep it to yourself, I'm the writer here ( mwahahaha !) .
What happened was that this lady was standing behind me in the reasonably crowded bus... the guy in the seat ahead got up for his stop, and this other guy took the opportunity to sit down. Not a prob, untill I remembered the lady .. and I asked the new guy in the seat to get up and give her the seat.... really normal stuff...happens everywhere... but what was not so common was that she thanked me. and believe me that rarely happens! I mean its fine that we give the ladies our seats, but what's not fine is that they don't even show the tiniest bit of gratitude ( and its rude !)... but this particularly lady did, and I actually felt like smiling the whole time I was in the bus (except that I preferred not having a moronic grin stuck on my face and look like a clownship intern). So all in all, its nice having a little gratitude around.... remember... one kind deed at a time, and you can change the world.

I always thank the person who gets up and offers me his seat... :)
I also smile! :P

and yea, slam books were very popular when I was in college too and this one girl had written that "Though she doesn't like; she wishes me well for the future" LOL!!

i started a part-time job at a bookshop and a customer left a bookmark he received for free as a member of the bookshop programme. i ran out of the shop, down to the escalator and he was so grateful. i thought it was just a small gesture but i felt really good about it too, just like you and your moment. :)
