“The world is not a wish-granting factory.”Saturday, August 17, 2013 4:25 PM
“There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There's .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I'm likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn't trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I'm grateful.”
— John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
I've read "The Fault In Our Stars", fallen in love with it and got my heart torn from reading it. It might seem like a miracle for two people to find solace and love in each other under the most unbelievable circumstances, but I believe these things happen. Or rather, I want to believe that these things do happen. The main character has the most sophisticated aura that I've ever seen (or read, in this case). She notices things and sees things in a different perspective from others. She is bright and strong. Her mind is an intricate labyrinth that will embroil you. And yes, I adore her, this frictional character of Green. So fascinating is her personality that it makes me want to be like her because she views things in such a clear, vivid light. Then of course, there's the guy, yet another intriguing character who caused me to be captivated, enchanted even. Together, they do make a great pair, except that life doesn't always go the way you want it to be and because pain demands to be felt. Indeed, the world is, after all, not a wish-granting factory.

It has been close to 2 months of not posting... I wonder if anyone missed my absence during this period. After all, you never know what you have until it's gone. Things are, inevitably, tough nowadays. There are so many things to cope with even without commitments. I thought I had known this earlier but now I realised that I finally understood the meaning of 'drained' after all these years. Of course, I know that life is a roller coaster ride. There will always be ups and downs. I've been through uncountable number of such experiences and I can't say I've never been genuinely happy once, except that when you balance both sides on a weighing scale, one filled with all my negativity might tilt a little more on its side.
My birthday had been a quiet affair this year, apart from the love I received from people who really mean what they say, so I'm grateful for these people and I think in this aspect, I'm rather blessed. (: And just yesterday, I met up with my dearie because she went back to our sec school herself and I couldn't make it because I was released late. Suddenly, everything seemed like it was back in the good old days and we just sat at the station and caught up with each other's life (with photos, of course). I don't like change, because I feel that it ruins the natural course of things and even though I had faith in everyone whom I love, still I worried. Then I discovered only yesterday that my fretting over trivial matters when putting my sincere feelings into relationships which I treasure should be of the highest priority is unnecessary. Just A Little Faith ♡
