'Normal guys' need a chance to prove themselves, girls...

Why don’t normal guys get a chance? I hate the way some girls expect their so called ‘dream guys’ to have the 3C’s: Cash, Credit Card & Car. I don’t understand how that it can be an expectation somehow, that a guy that has all that will be a good boyfriend/husband automatically. Those guys prefer to use their cash and toys do the talking and loving, it that what girls these days really want? Where do all the guys that don’t have all those things fit in? They just don’t get a chance because they don’t fit girls’ fantasies.

Guys that don’t have the ‘luxuries of life’ (so to speak) may not be the complete guys but they can certainly provide a girl with the ‘luxuries of love’. Guys that have all the best luxuries do get a lot of girls, but they also lose the meaning of love, it becomes a sport rather than a commitment. I’m proud to say that I’m a normal guy that may not have the 3C’s or even good looks but I’m confident that I do have a big heart with a lot of love to give. I’d rather work my way to success to provide a girl with all the best rather than to splash out my parents’ money. I’m confident that I’ll be at the top one day and I’d want to have a girl that appreciates the fact that I’ve worked my way to the top rather than a girl that just appreciates what I have.

Shakespeare’s words in the classic, A Midsummer Night's Dream, still linger in my mind:
“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind”. I guess that this doesn’t really happen these days. So girls, please give guys like us a chance in the future because what we lack materialistically, we have in heart and soul. That’s what eternal love means.

A Walk To Remember...

Well, some people say that inspiration is the key to success. I watched “A Walk To Remember” again today and I realise that life is too short for us to waste on doing things that are unmeaning. Reflecting on what I’ve done so far makes me want to do more to better myself and I want to strive to find my place in the world again. It tells me to appreciate the people that are important to me and it teaches me how to love without expecting anything back in return. I don’t know why but that movie inspires me each time I watch it. It makes me feel good about myself and about the people around me. I’ve done many bad things in my life, but with God’s help, I can turn it around and never look back.

I can say how successful I’ll be in turning my life around but I feel motivated to make a difference no matter what it takes. God has given me a sign, I cannot ignore it, it’s a miracle to me. Watch the movie, you’ll feel the same way…

Memorable Quotes

“What is a friend? It's a single soul dwelling in two bodies." – Aristotle (used in A Walk To Remember)

“Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous, love is never boastful or conceited; it is never rude or selfish; it does not take offense, and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people’s sins but delights in the truth; it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes. Love does not come to an end.” - Proverbs 23:7, The Bible (used in A Walk To Remember)

“There is nothing love cannot face;
there is no limit to its faith,its hope, and endurance.
In a word, there are three thingsthat last forever: faith, hope, and love;
but the greatest of them all is love.”
– (used in A Walk To Remember)

Jerry Maguire: I won't let you get rid of me.
Jerry Maguire: Im not letting you get rid of me. how about that? tonight our company, our little buisness had a very big night, but it wasnt complete. it wasnt even close to being in the same vacinity as complete, because i couldnt share it with you. i couldnt laugh about it with you. im miss... i miss my wife.
Jerry Maguire: I love you. You... complete me.
Dorothy: Shut up. Just shut up. You had me at "hello."
- (used in Jerry Maguire)

"Roses are red,
Some diamonds are blue,
Chivalry is dead,
But you're still kinda cute."

"They call me Thomas,
Last name Crown,
Recognize game,
I'm a lay mine's down."
- Nelly Furtado - Promiscuous Girl

Damn... 3-week holiday!

I’ve just completed my first semester at INTI Nilai today. It was a fun semester but also sickening because of the heavy load from coursework and tests. Well, I’ve got a 3-week break now and I really don’t know what to do with it. I can’t work because it’s too short and I can’t really go anywhere because my pockets are dry. Can’t imagine being at home for that duration… I should find something to do before I go insane.

Just sat for my exam today…. I think a few A’s are due and overall, my results have been great so far (not the final marks). At least that will give me some peace of mind during my holidays. For once, I’m actually looking forward to get my results.
