Long time coming

I know I've not blogged in a while. Frankly, I have stopped wondering whether people read this or not. But just in case you're one of the few who frequent my blog 400 times a day, I am in the middle of exams so unless you want to hear an earful of legal jargon I myself am having trouble explaining, you best stay clear the next month or two.

Just a little insight to this exam; I have been asking God for a second chance. Absent minded little me forgot that God likes people to be specific so instead of giving me that second stab at London regardless of Brown-instituted policies and welcoming the new mayor of Borisville, He worked things out so perfectly so that I would be sitting for my bar exam again. This is the one exam I was happy to fail last year and didn't expect to ever, ever, EVER have to sit for again. One up to god; He always gets His way :s

Anyhoo, this is seriously incredible or incredulous or just insane because at least last year I had the whole year to mull through the 11 subjects but this year I have about 2 months. Yes, I believe this feat has been attempted by others before who have succeeded, only they carry the label 'genius' and unfortunately as much as I wish it to be so, being wonderfully unique does not necessarily equate geniusdom.

On a good note, I am starting to feel happy here back in Malaysia. I am feeling less resigned, resentful or feeling like it's a huge chore and I'm playing exiled martyr to a land of mosquitoes and fewer potatoes. Having said that, I also believe happiness is something we choose for ourselves and no one does rain like God on Malaysia which is pretty awesome since I like rain. As much as London is amazing, the rain there certainly needs more oomph in its step.

Pet peeves

1. Taxi man telling me he doesn't have change for a 50.
2. Iritating life form known as a 2-year old, screaming and kicking in the aeroplane. Shut up!
3. Queue jumpers. I don't care if you're white, black, yellow or purple; whether you're 8 feet tall or 3 feet nothing. Whether you're in a suit or trainers. Whether you're well dressed or in cut up khakis. Get in the *&$*%^ line!
4. Road hoggers - I don't care if your grandparents laid the foundations, get to the side of the road!!
5. People who try solve all my problems.
6. As much as Jesus is in my life, people who just 'Jesus talk' who have not been in my shoes, don't empathise or sympathise, yet tell me everything will be ok. Go live in the real world then tell me if you feel the same way.
7. People who tinkle on the seat and don't wipe up after themselves.
8. People who bring drinks and ciggies to the dance floor in clubs. It's a DANCE floor you morons! You want to drink and smoke, stand aside. And you, who *^$&%* burned my hand, thank your stars I didn't shove you. Hard.

And then after a nerve wrecking journey to go home, I see my bro, he's shot up 3 inches and I feel like it's good to be home and the irritating people are just losers and not ghastly monsters I have to terminate.
