Rockets came to life.

So those who know me know how much of a psychotic HootOwl/Owl Citizen I am. It's hard to explain but I find it so easy to fall in love with his songs. Actually come to think of it, it's not really just Owl City, it's Adam himself. His music under Owl City, Sky Sailing, Swimming with Dolphins apa semua side projects dia tu, they're all beautiful. The way he manages to intertwine these random words to make sweet sounding sentences that rhyme and people can sing to, it's just such a gift.

And the majority of his songs aren't the typical mushy-mushy lovey dovey bla bla shiznits that takeover the airwaves nowadays. They're more sort of general. He lets you relate to them how you want. He plays with them, the words. And he plays with them very well. 

Roller coaster through the atmosphere,
I'm drowning in this starry serenade, 
Where ecstasy becomes cavalier
My imagination is taking me away

That's one of my absolute favourite parts of one of many of his songs. Just sums his style up perfectly. Unique, dreamy, weird and one may say a tad nonsensical but utterly wonderful nonetheless. It's not to everyone's taste which is okay. You can't please everyone.

Tapi teringat the times back home when I would drive around with my family in the car - Adam's music blazing in the background as per usual - and they would all be like, 'OMG not him again, please pasang lagu orang lain'. And I would be all like, 'nuh uh I'm in the driver's seat so I choose.' And 5 seconds later Angah stuffs the USB in and puts on his random screamo emo tahapa benda trail mix and we would all be like 'NOOOOOO BISING'  and last last tutup radio. Bummer. Ah lovely memories.

I miss home.  

Anyway yeah.
Bye kot.

Ketuk sikit.

All you can do is try right? Try, pray, try again, and never quit praying. 

I have so much to be thankful for but I tend to forget. I need constant reminders. Wallpaper phone dah tukar, post-its around my room lah apa semua, hari-hari tengok. Tapi lupa jugak. Lumrah manusia lah kan. 

Put on a smile and move forward, however hard it may be. You're not being hypocritical, you're being thankful since you know that He has given you plenty. You acknowledge that things are difficult but you can brush it off and move along. It will be worth it someday. When you look back and see that you made it through, alive. And at that moment everything will reveal itself. And it will be good. In Sha Allah.

Tell me again my dear will you be waiting here?

Trust is so fragile isn't it? You can give it to someone, then a little slip and it's broken. Just like that. There's no going back. You can try to mend the leftovers but the cracks will still be there. It's just not the same anymore. 

I guess that's what makes it so sad.
