skipping around Hannah's dining table with conversation and wine, I felt that I was a step nearer to real living and a forward from just being a student. I think that I have been given a chance to be defined in the way that I am most comfortable with. And this makes me very excited to live the rest of my life.

Mel was right about how the little things bug me. I am throwing a panic tantrum because I have a keloid scar on my right foot. It's bulbous and maroon, but really, small and... on my right foot.

Ok, I think life has simmered down into normalcy again. :)

I am obsessed with Eisley.

And it was wonderful being back at choir.

And then I learnt that I am horridly ill-disciplined. That will have to change. Thank God for grace.

I was reading Elim's blog and thought that she was right. Sometimes I think I've broken faith with myself, and need to have the grace to love this broken person.

Quotes from Mel.

I sometimes wonder about you Hannah.
"About what?"
What is there NOT to wonder about? How do you survive in this world?

You are so intelligent, but sometimes... why have you not exploded and taken the whole world with you?

And about my emotional state:

Don't worry about it, you've just left Singapore and a piece of you still remains there. It'll come over later, like lost luggage.

And then come the lessons on blessings. And that the first will be last.
Matthew 20
They leave in two hours. I want to run over to the hotel, grab onto their legs and scream "DON'T LEAVE!!!!!"

Of course I will only shower and head to school. ugh.

My parents dropped me off today and headed off to their hotel in downtown Vancouver. Tomorrow morning, they will fly off to Singapore, back home, while I continue to live my life here. Of course I would not have it any other way, but I am starting to realise that some of my choices hurt. I want my mummy.

And in church today, I was arrested by the magnificence and grace of God, and after spending 7 months drifting further away, I'm glad to be back in First CRC. Maybe Shiyu was right about my church and how it affects my spiritual growth. I was going to ask if I should leave HPC on those grounds but then realised that this is not the time for such questions.

Ok, life in Vancouver starts today. the past week was a fuzzy no-mans land with my body in Vancouver but my relational orientation in Singapore. Now that my family has left (woe is me) I can be all, and fully here. But I love you.

Vancouver is always the time for realization. And here I realise that I am pitifully needy and insecure. My inner clown acts up at the steepest point of reality and shows that I, indeed, desperately want it all. And this cannot be legitimized.

Make it real again.

I want to burn with passion.
Only you...
Now that I've settled into a nice warm cozy basement, I have time for other fears. And one of which is being dreadfully alone.

Community is very important.
