Hanson & Me.

I have been a Hanson fan since the 1st time I heard their music. I don't care if ppl think that is embarrassing, i obviously don't think so cuz I tell a lot of ppl abt my love for them anyway. Never been embarrassed and never will be!

Recently I have been itching to go to one of their concerts, well, actually it has been something that has been on my mind since the day I became a fan. But back then, I was a only a poor student at all of 15 years of age. How to go see them? In any case, they never set foot onto Singapore land once, the closest they got, was probably Australia and Thailand. And had I known they were never gonna come this way again, I would have ran away from home, stole and robbed to go see them perform! (ok not really, but i would have certainly tried harder to make that happen.)

Till this day, I have seen most of my fave bands/singers perform live. The only one that I have not and will die regretting never having seen them, is Hanson. :( Maybe it is more of a childhood dream that my adult self have to go and fulfill.. but I really do want to see them perform live. I made a promise to myself, that when I go to the states, (not in the near future, but someday I will) I must make sure I go at a time where they have ongoing tours and I will plan my route in such a way that I can stop by to see them. All those years of idolization and money spent on teeny-bopper magazines have to go somewhere, right??

So I was feeling really over the edge today.. and I did this online:
It's a phony but nevertheless, made me happy looking at it. :p

And this:
This turned out so realistic I went quite ballistic at the end product! I feel so proud of myself!! And who cares if I have fat arms! HAHA!

So there.. I am such an easy person to please! and easily contented too! now I shall start saving for my US trip and 1st ever Hanson concert!!!!!!! :D

Meaning of ENGAGED.

"An engagement is a promise to marriage, and also the period of time between proposal and marriage – which may be lengthy or trivial. During this period, a couple is said to be affianced, betrothed, engaged to be married, or simply engaged."

I am a bit anal about how this word is used. I know it is nice of ppl to say congrats on your engagement bla bla bla but when the person is getting MARRIED and not ENGAGED, it really puts me off slightly. Cuz you can't even get the occasion right???

To date, the worse way I have ever heard the word being used is this: "I heard so-and-so is getting engaged, CONGRATS!"

WRONG USE OF WORD THERE, MATE! (Unless you know for sure she is going to accept the proposal when her other half pops the question. But why would you do that and spoil the surprise for her??)

It should be: "So-and-so is engaged! CONGRATS!" And the only time you should be congratulating someone on her engagement is when she has already been proposed to, and is planning for her upcoming wedding.

To say that someone is getting engaged means the person is waiting to be proposed to. Now, that is just dumb! You don't anticipate a proposal! And if you have already promised to marry, that means you are already ENGAGED, not GETTING ENGAGED!!!

Unless of cuz, in some societies, an public engagement announcement is necessary before you get married, so then yea, you can probably say: "We are getting engaged next weekend, the engagement party is on Dec XX at XXXX."

But still, I would consider that engaged since you have already promised to marry. Meaning, the other party has already popped the question, you said yes, and hence the party to announce the engagement, right? The engagement party is just a procedure to go through with.

ARGH! Issit so hard to understand?

Yet there are still ppl on my FB, congratulating me on my ENGAGEMENT. I AM MARRIED!!! NOT ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!! I was only engaged from April 26, 2009 (the day my hubby proposed) till September 13, 2009 (cuz I ROM-ed on September 14, 2009, legally married).

I hope that is clear now. *heavy sigh!*

It is a scary feeling. To think that you are ready for change, but to realise you are not when change happens.

I think there are a lot of questions in life that you won't be able to answer correctly no matter how confident you think you are abt the answer. And a lot of times, you don't know how wrong you are until it gets out of hand.

"Life is like a box of chocolates, you'll never know what you're going to get."

This quote never rang more true for me than now.

What can I say, other than the cliche-norm "It's too late". And I can't go back.

Maybe it is just that time of the month, I am feeling mighty emo abt things that matter to me.

But it doesn't change the way I feel abt this change. I am truly scared.

Am I up for it?
