    When the cold wind blows

    Just know that I have left

    The fleeting breeze

    Carries away only my yearning for you.

    When the leaves fall

    Just know that I have left

    the falling leaves

    Will only carry our memories together

    When the cold wind blows

    You will be lonely

    Even so, do not

    Think about me any more

    One time

    Your warm gaze

    Brought butterflies

    To my young heart

    What is Love
    Hoping that you are worrying about me as I am for you, and wishing you are pining for me as I do for you.
    Is this Love?
    Is it that you are not worrying about me, that you will forget about me and the moments we have shared.
    Is this Love?
    Or if neither, is it
    That I am willing to go thru everything from the very beginning just so that I can meet you again?

    Modern Love

    I didn’t binge watch. If anything I took forever after I started to watch the very first episode a while back to re-start watching it. Eventually I watched the last 7 episodes in about a couple of weeks. The very last 2 episodes I watched in the same night.

    I loved the different characters / story in each of the episodes. They were each their own independent story but at the same time they were thread together somehow.

    Reductio ad Absurdum

    Hear the term on Big Bang Theory a while back and it, like many many other terms I’ve heard on BBT, have stuck on my mind and have always meant to go back.

    I do like the term as a interesting way of arguing. Often we are passive of our views / opinions because the counter argument is not drastic enough. But if we confronted with the extremes, even the absurd extremes, then we will stand up to support our views.

    Game of Thrones

    Finally started to watch and since I had 7 whole seasons to catch up – I did what any unreasonable person would do. I powered thru 6 seasons (that is 60+ episodes) in about 4 weeks. Which leaves me Season 7 and then I should be caught up.

    I do think I should mention that though I had tried, half heartedly, to watch the series in the past, I have put it off because I told myself that I wanted to read the book(s) first. But I never really made any effort to find the book(s). That probably says something 😦 But this time around a lot of my friends really got into the whole #GoT discussion and I was having a hard time avoiding it. If I am not going to be able to avoid it, I figured I ought to watch it so as to be able to comment / participate in the discussion.

    Also, there was a mention of Ed Sheeran being in there.
