Forever 21 + 10

Another year has passed. I turn another year older. Hello 31.

Strangely, nobody celebrates their 31th birthday with a bang, unlike 21th. Maybe because 21 is the age where you are legal to do some things like watch R(A) movie or vote. Which is kinda sad because I spend my 21th birthday in the middle of Brunei jungle and away from the people I love. Thanks to Mindef for sending me there for 3 weeks for my National Service training. It was the toughest training I had during my NS.
Come to think of it, hey, my 21th Birthday was celebrated with a loud bang. The loud bang from Thunder Flashes and Blanks.
I’m still kinda shock whenever I’m reminded of my age. I’m fine with being old. I’m just shocked that I’ve been living for so many years. And based on normal life expectancy of a male Singaporean, I will be approaching my half way mark in life in 8 years time.
Who knows, I might have already passed my half way mark in life. Haha.
I seldom make birthday wishes. I believe that most of the things that I’ve always wanted can be achieved one way or another by myself. For the rest of the things in life, no matter how hard I wish, it will forever remain at the edge of my desire.
John Mayer – Edge of Desire

Young and full of running
tell me where is that taking me
just a great figure eight
or a tiny infinite
love is really nothing
but a dream that keeps waking me
for all of my trying
we still end up dying
how can it be?
don’t say a word
just come over and lie here with me
cause I’m just about to set fire to everything I see
I want you so bad I’ll go back on the things I believe
there I just said it
I’m scared you’ll forget about me
so young and full of running
all the way to the edge of desire
steady my breathing
silently screaming
I have to have you now
wired and I’m tired
think I’ll sleep in my clothes on the floor
baby this mattress will spin on its axis
and find me on yours
don’t say a word
just come over and lie here with me
cause I’m just about to set fire to everything I see
I want you so bad I’ll go back on the things I believe
there I just said it
I’m scared you’ll forget about me
don’t say a word
just come over and lie here with me
cause I’m just about to set fire to everything I see
I want you so bad I’ll go back on the things I believe
there I just said it
I’m scared you’ll forget about me
