"If I was one thing, I'd be a candle
Lighting the way so you can handle
Your life easier without woes
Not having to fight with your foes.
I'd help keep you from stumbling over
Things blocking your path to an open door.
If I light your path, life is easier,
Even strong winds, my light will not deter.
No matter what, I'm here for you
To cheer you up when you are blue.
Do not fret when times get tough,
If things look down or kind of rough.
Just remember, I'm always here,
In your heart, close and near."

Happy Birthday to one of the toughest girl I've known, Hida.
May Allah bless, Always.

To Af and Sha, Happy Birthday tomorrow!

Pleasant surprise

Bumped into her this afternoon, exchanged pleasantries as any other acquaintance would, chit chatted about what we've been up to; when she suddenly and unexpectedly brought up this one particular subject. One that i've long forgotten and buried, much less give thought to.
She apologised for any misdeed/s she might have done sometime five years ago. Stunned I definitely was. She did nothing wrong. Nonetheless a beautiful heart indeed, to go along with her beautiful face. Good for you, I wish you all the very best. Indeed, pleasantly surprised I was.

In my almost 25 years of living, never have I succumbed to watching any form of spoilers, be it movie's or reality show's, much less tv shows's. Watching spoilers is akin to committing minor sins! Well, Ep. 10 of season 5 aired in the US yesterday. My dear obedient brother downloaded it for the eager me, as had religiously been done for the past 9 weeks.

The usually healthful episode of TreeHill had a converse effect on me this morning, disconcerting me in every imaginable way. Thus it proved TMTH (check this out idol boy; yea that's 'too much to handle'. So long!). There I sat, embroiled in the discontentment with the outcome of ep. 10. Seven excruciatingly long days to go until the next episode (Yes dear people, I have my share of drama when it comes to TreeHill and OC). Be not alarmed.

Under normal circumstances, I would at all times be contented with the ending of every episodes, until this morning's (episode) that is. I was hoping hard that everything would return to normality come the next episode. But I thought to the fiendishly disturbed me; I have got to do better than just hoping hard.

There I sat, encased in my pile of pillows, less enamoured with the prospect of a disastrous outcome in the next episode. (At this juncture, you must be saying to yourself; come on, finish up your story already you dramatic tweet). The brilliant idea of watching the spoiler came to my mind, thus obviating the need for a week of ardous contemplation. Not that I have not enough things to worry about already.

So there, I capitulated to my nearly 25 years of principle; to never ever succumb to watching spoilers for it diminishes every speck of surprise element and mind you, it's a great deal to me. Oh what the heck, it was only a need-to-know basis. And you guessed it right; everything returned to normalcy after. But, my question is; how many spoiler/s did I actually watch? (Read with the utmost scrutiny).

Now might be the time to slowly heave a sigh of relief.

To slowly rid myself of all the bewilderment.

To slowly attain the pertinacity required to close the chapter for this semester.

To pray for the Best, the very Best.

How worried should I be about all this? Please give me strength to go through two presentations, three assignments and a test (and another two for my students) for the whole of next week. And one operation the week after next, to top it all. A long, arduous journey. And most importantly, Thank You ALL, you know who you are.
