Thoughtful Gifts

I have to say, that although I've received plenty of bad gifts, I've never received a gift that has delighted me or impressed me as much as the ones I opened this year. With the trend today of gift cards, cash, and vouchers, people don't think before getting someone a present, these gifts are "safe" but not memorable. I don't remember who got me the chapters gift card...

This year, someone gave me truly special gifts. Ones that took thought, and time, and energy, and affection to create. It makes me think that giving is not about the amount of $ on a gift card. It's about the heart that went into a gift.

I wish everyone Happy Holidays! I'll be in Miami, Mexico, Mahogany Bay and the Cayman Islands for the next little while on a well deserved break. I wish you all the best in the New Year! :)

Procrastination Poem- (Inspired by Mulan)

Let's get down to studying, to defeat exams
Why are there 13 chapters, I don't know any of them?
It's the longest course I've ever took, and I can bet before I'm done,
I will have wasted hours having fun.

There are 2 days left now, and I'm getting scared
First I'll have to facebook, cruise the net, eat pears
Before I review I'll doodle make art, and I'll even watch a show
now there's 30 hours, let's go!

I'm never gonna be done on time
say goodbye to all those good marks
if I don't do well I'd better not tell my parents
These organism names are so long
Better start intensely cramming
Now I really wish that I had photographic memory

I really just wanna take a break
now I only have one more day
I hope that I'll be okay
But I'm sure with a will, there's a way!

Time is racing toward me till exams arrive
Once I find my confidence, I just may survive
The gym is filled with a thousan…

---- John Steinbeck
“Winter is not a season, it's an occupation.”  -----Sinclair Lewis
“Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.”  ----Antoine de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince

Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.
