Want and Need

What I want are true friends like Harry has Ron and Hermione
What I need is for someone who would be there for me

What I want is to have more money than I can spend
What I need is a degree so I can work

What I want is more time
What I need is motivation

What I want are skills
What I need is dedication

What I want is talent
What I need is inspiration

What I want is happiness
What I need is self-discovery

What I want is a life
What I need is to find the meaning behind it first

What I want is a rockin' body
What I need is exercise

What I want is to complain less
What I need to do is solve problems

What I want is freedom
What I need is closure

What I want is charm
What I need is confidence

What I want is love and romance
What I need is self-assurance

What I want is to be brave
What I need is courage

What I want to be is a grown-up
What I need to be is myself

The Internship Survival Guide

Here's a short guide, by me, to help you get through your internship/industrial training/practical. Well, no one asked for it, but I was bored, so here ya go.

1. Know your stuff
The whole point of this is to train you for your potential future even-if-you-don't-want-it career. Learn as much as you can and don't limit yourself. Show them what you're made off; let your supervisor know you think too much.


2. Examine the situation and react accordingly
Now that you're in an office situation, see how everything is. Check out how many people that are close to your age, and try to make friends with them. They should understand you. If your place has more people in the late 40's, make friends too, but keep caution. Try to avoid office gossip, unless they share it with you. Also, don't feel hurt if no one invites you to join them for lunch, even if you are already there for 10 weeks. But chances are, by week 3, they would have. Depends on how friendly they are with you…

All Was Well

10 years after the first movie came out, Harry Potter's story finally ends; and it's a bittersweet goodbye for Potterheads.

I love Harry Potter, so it would be difficult not to compare Deathly Hallows Part 2 with the source novel. One thing's for sure, the movie is a bit more dramatic than the book.

Even so, the movie does have flaws like some of the previous films. Let's start at the basic.

But first, a standing ovation for the entire series *applause*

Straitjacket Feeling

I wrote this a few years ago. Can't remember my state of mind then. Just trying my skills in storytelling.

He stood there, clutching a note in his hand. He did not know if it was the right thing to do. Giving up on love, life, friends, family. He looks up. A rope made from bedsheets hung from the ceiling; he made it.He grabbed a low stool and placed it beneath the rope. Hesitating, he sat on it, rather than standing on it. He sat there, thinking of all the storm he went through.He was never happy with life, always making people happy rather than himself. He likes that he makes people smile. He never got anything back, and he didn't mind. He tried to remember his happiest day, but got sad when nothing materialised in his memory. He snapped up and looked around his room. Memories are everywhere, but none remained in his mind.He thought about his parents; what would they say, how would they feel. They were proud of him, neevr once thought if he was happy. They were, at least, and…

Bright Star

Bright star, would I were steadfast as thou art — Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night And watching, with eternal lids apart, Like Nature's patient, sleepless Eremite, The moving waters at their priestlike task Of pure ablution round earth's human shores, Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask Of snow upon the mountains and the moors — No — yet still stedfast, still unchangeable, Pillow'd upon my fair love's ripening breast, To feel for ever its soft swell and fall, Awake for ever in a sweet unrest, Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath, And so live ever — or else swoon to death.
~ John Keats
