Everybody is moving on with their lives as I sit on a corner patiently waiting for my turn. I’m turning a year older in a couple of weeks time and I couldn’t figure out where my life is going, everything seems to be temporary and it scares me.
These past few days have been rough and extremely emotionally exhausting, like a cloud of doom was above everyone’s head (at least that’s how I felt).
Aside from the balance between light and dark as the core theme of the ongoing Star Wars narrative, it has always been about finding that little spark of hope in desperate moments. Remember Princess Leia in Episode IV saying “Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only Hope.” and Jyn Erso’s “We Have Hope. Rebellions are built on Hope.” in Rogue One. It’s that strong feeling of always believing for the best, even in the face of the worst circumstances.
Last week, we watched “The Last Jedi” after months of avoiding trailers and articles online. I can’t say the movie is as bad as “The Phantom Menace” or it’s as great as “The Empire Strikes Back” but it was a bit different (a good kind of different at least for me). It’s like binding the old and the new with the ultimate purpose of passing the torch to the new generation, and leaving us with a legend in Luke Skywalker.
With the untimely passing of actress Carrie Fisher in 2016, this will also be her last appearance as Princess Leia/General Leia (my heart is crying) which leaves us a Star Wars universe without Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker (where do we go from here then?)
And that kid with the broom, I guess it’s not just about the Skywalkers anymore in the future.
Let’s just hope for the best in Episode IX.

December 1st marks the official start of the Holiday Season. Gaaaaah! I can’t wait to get on that plane and see my family. I am really looking forward to this year’s holiday break; cause this time, I don’t have to worry too much about my health, and there will be less doctor’s appointment too. I can really focus on spending quality time with the people I love the most.
Time after Time – INOJ on Magic 89.9 (Friday Madness)
Where to go later after dinner? Running out of places to go…*yawn*
For a productive, fun-filled weekend.
For December 12 to come quick and of course December 25!
My old olive jacket over my Mickey Mouse shirt and new pair of jeans.
My current disposition in life, in bringing back my old happy/thankful self.
Well, more moolah so I can execute some of my plans for next year (Education, House Renovation and Travel).
A good foot rub!
Excited for the clock to hit 6 (official end of business day), which means I can get the hell outta here haha!
Thought for the week:
Always trust yourself more than you doubt yourself 🙂
Have a great weekend everybody!
