Has it already started? This period of life that I've known about and feared since I was a child, this thing called "adulthood", made up of a never-ending chain of "important things to do", from which there is no rest and no respite until the day one retires or dies, whichever comes first. No more month-long holidays, no more staring at the ceiling and wondering what to do, no more watching the world go by with nothing on one's mind. When did it start? When was the last time I had a real break, when I could wake up in the morning and not know what to do with the day, when I had nothing on my to-do list, heck, when I didn't even have a to-do list?

I'm just tired. Too tired to put on my armour, too tired to force a smile. Too tired to be Superman, too tired to be a gentleman. Too tired to be patient, too tired to be nice. Too tired to keep the steam from venting. Too tired to want to do the stupid comp. sec. homework which I still think is a bloody waste of time. Too tired to [over-dramatization. deleted.]

Ironically I want to play soccer. Or hockey.

The long, long to-do list is making me slightly kooky. I'm starting to scare myself. i need a break, but the dilemma is that I can't take a break without feeling guilty about it, and stressed about all the work that's waiting to be done.

Well, back to work.

Life has been pretty rough recently. I think it's time for a KTV session. Do you know why soldiers sing as they march? It helps them keep time, and also forget the time, especially when the more raunchy songs are sung and everyone laughs. I remember my 24km march, when we ran out of classic army songs to sing, so we started singing campfire songs and pop songs and anything else that popped into our heads. Basically singing is good lah.

An xkcd comic about the status of Pluto led to the airplane on a treadmill argument, which makes for fun reading.

I bought a 50-cent paper cup from a dispensing machine today. It was supposed to come with free Horlicks, but that didn't materialise.

It's one of those things that's only funny if you see it.

It's 258 steps, give or take a few, from the bus stop beside SRC (along the expressway) to my lab at AS6. Since school started 3 weeks ago, every time my dad drops me off on his way to work, I've climbed those steps, rather than take the shuttle bus. I may be nuts, but I actually enjoy the climb, especially the stretch through the trees between YIH and the central library. The smell of nature in the morning brings back memories of the days in camouflage: tough and tiring days, but simple days where the objective each day is simply to survive till bedtime. So, these mornings, as I stomp, panting and sweating, through the trees, I am reminded of that time when work was tough and friends were far away, but I was at peace with myself.
