09 vs 17

So.......................................................

I am like a thousand percent positive that no one around me blogs anymore because, there ain't nobody, who has got time for that. See we all used to be such KIDS, blogging about our days back then every single day, as if they were significant. All those tears shed for the silliest reasons ever. Do they matter now? NO. Well, I mean, we have to go through stuff to learn stuff, so in a sense everything matters and nothing does.

Anyway, I used to be one of those kids who blogged for the sake of blogging at the beginning, recording down every single day of my life even though they were all equally boring and similar and repetitive, and I didn't even bothered using proper grammar or proper words, nor did I bothered to record things down properly. So reading back on my posts the first two or three years when I started blogging right now, I have these thoughts:

1. What am I talking about?
2. HUH?????
3. Who in the world is (insert name here) See, people do eventually become irrelevant.

All in all, everything sounded so silly and everything made me cringe!

Okay, so recently I've been feeling rather annoyed and a little bit angry even, and I initially logged back into my long abandoned blog to let off some steam but somehow I ended up reading some of my old posts from 9 years ago. That's when I found how much these tags thing are the stuff back then. I thought I'd redo them now, and see how my answer now will differ from 9 years ago.

Mannnn this gon' be funnnnnnnnnnn.

(Those in black are answered by 2009 me, those in blue are answered by 2017 me.)

Tag Rules:
1. The rules of the games get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their name, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment, letting them to know they got tagged and to ask them to play and read your blog.
(BASICALLY, it's just a strategy to help yourself earn more readers lol)

Have you been on a plane
duh.
yes (okay, see, why can't we just answer properly and politely when people ask us things? I admit I get annoyed sometimes, too, when people ask me questions which have obvious answers, but when you think about it, it's only obvious to you, not everyone has the same mind as you and so what's obvious to you might be vague to them and VICE VERSA. ALSO, 2009 me, don't be mean, not everyone has the privilege to experience a plane ride. y u gon act all gangsta.)

Swam in the ocean
ocean
GURL THAT AIN'T AN ANSWER. No I have not swam in the ocean, at most just by the beach, is that considered ocean? and I never actually even SWAM there.

Fallen asleep in school
YES! Moral exam. (std 5 or 6) forgot.
YES....... I remember that moral exam I was SO soundly asleep I even drooled HAHAHAHAHA! And then there was this time in Pre-U where I had 5 hours of break in between, yes 5 hours, and I finished my homework, slept, woke up, and there were still 2 hours remaining. 

Broken someone’s heart
I dunno.. Hope not..
haven't we all at one point broke someone's heart and at another have our hearts broken? it happens either intentionally or unintentionally. sometimes some actions must be made even though it might hurt some people. not gonna go any deeper than that, but to answer this question, sorry me from nine years ago.......

Fell of your chair
YES! std 4
I REMEMBER WHEN IN STANDARD 4 TOO! I literally laughed so hard I fell off the chair. I think that was the first and last time till date.

Sat by the phone all night waiting for someone to call
i'm not tat crazy. LOL
at one point or more than one point of your life, you're gonna have some minor/major responsibilities of collecting stuff from/passing stuff to someone, and at times, this someone will happen to be a cb who will tell you, 'oh, i'm not there yet, but i will call you when i get there' signing it off with 'within 10 minutes', 'by XX hour', so you wait for them to call you but they NEVERRR DIDDDD. (and so you keep their stuff forever)

Do you believe in love at first sight
i used to.. but not anymore?
I want to say yes, but it's hard to imagine and even harder to believe, so I guess I'll say no.

Like picnics
never had one.
there there, 13 year old me, don't sound so sad about never having a picnic back then. some things don't happen because it's 1. not meant to happen to you or 2. it isn't time for it to happen yet. for picnic, it's the second one. because a few years later you made some pretty awesome friends and, 

 BAM.
BAM.

First picnic ever and it was a lot of fun. According to Ah Si's caption, we were a bunch of kids who were going to have final exams soon but we all still took the time out to make this picnic happen. That's love. xx

Who was the last person you danced with
WAH! ALOT LOH! technique class with all major grades. UNCOUNTABLE! UNLISTABLE too.
1. 'unlistable' is not a word, but i know it can be. 
2. i'm quite jealous of 13 year old me who still did ballet.
3. life in university now involved a lot of dancing so i'm happy still :D
4. the last person i danced with was myself because many times when i'm home alone and the music is playing i just start dancing, also, i have snapchat and snapchat has filters that have some pretty nice music and i just... gotta move

Last person who made you smile
Jovynn Yeong. I just thought of the F*** video.
13 year old me because reading all those answers just... HAHAHAHAH. I do wonder WHAT F*** video tho...

well, it's not a stuffed animal, it's a headrest given by a friend, that has a face of an animal on it, and it had a sleeping eye patch that came along with it, but we don't know if it's a chick or a duck, so we call the headrest chuck and the eye patch dick because

No wasn't that fun. It took me more than an hour to do this I can't believe I let this happen. Anyway, it's nice to know that I've kept some of the traits that I like about myself and changed those that were way too negative. May we all just continue to improve ourselves and be the person we'd like :)

Goodnight x
