Once a stranger, then a lecturer and now, my Mama :)


 I know that you might not even read this because you have no idea what my blog link is. I am actually writing this entry for you because I miss you so much that it actually hurts. We started off as strangers. You were that one lecturer that I was always afraid of because you were always so professional and stern and the fact that you have such great accent and poise when you speak makes it harder for me to approach you in the beginning. But then again, things change. I will always remember the night I broke down and ran away to your house for a night. I will never forget how concern you were that night when I broke down and cried. It was that night that me realise how much you actually mean to me and each time I look back on the days I spent in college, I always wished I had more memories with you. The bond we shared is something I can never ever describe or put in words. And at this point, I just know that you're so much like a mother to me and I will always and forever be indebted to you for all the things you have done for me. The money, time and energy spent for me. You're one of those people in this world that I would really give my all to. Written below are the things that you have taught me in life. I love you Ma. Thanks for being the best "mama" any child can get. :')
  1. Nothing that’s handed to you in a silver platter is worth having. And nothing worth having will be handed to you. Fight for what you want.
  2. If you have to fight, hit first. And hit hard.
  3. There is no such thing as having too much fun.
  4. You were lovely long before he loved you. You will be lovely after that, too..
  5. There is nothing that an Angelina Jolie movie can’t fix.
  6. When people act like they don’t care about you, believe them.
  7. A relationship can only end two ways: You will either break up with that person or end up marrying them. Don’t waste your time with someone unless you can accept both outcomes.
  8. There’s a fine line between being fun and being obnoxious. Make sure you’re not on the wrong side of it.
  9. Mondays are fine. Maybe it’s your routine that sucks.
  10. If it’s your routine that sucks, change it.
  11. There is a big difference between listening and being quiet while waiting for your turn to talk. Listen to what others have to say. Listen whole-heartedly and carefully.
  12. Fall in love. Fall in love with songs, with books, with places, and fall in love with people. But above all, fall in love with yourself.
  13. Running away from your feelings is a race you will never win.
  14. Think extensively before making crucial decisions. Make sure that when you close a door, you’re perfectly content with shutting it.
  15. Make him chase you.
  16. Be worth the chase.
  17. When a relationship is over, walk away. You will not gain anything from watering a dead flower.
  18. Slow down. Life is passing you by. Make the most out of every moment.
  19. Good people do bad things.
  20. Bad people do good things.
  21. Not receiving any message is also a message.
  22. Your friends will give you all sorts of advice. Listen to them, take their point of view into consideration. And then do whatever you want. Because your friends are great, but you need to make your own mistakes every now and then.
  23. Make mistakes. Lots and lots of them. But learn from every single one. And never make the same mistake twice.
  24. Do not let anyone else dictate your happiness.
  25. If something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. Listen to your gut instincts.
  26. When someone does something wrong, don’t forget everything they did right.
  27. Travel as often as you can. Visit places you’ve always dreamed of going to, but don’t neglect the places you’ve never heard of. Go to that country in Africa whose name you can’t pronounce.
  28. Be kind to others.
  29. Be kind to yourself.
  30. Confidence is key.
  31. Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.
  32. People can only stab you in the back if you hand them the knife. Don’t trust everyone around you. But when you find someone worth trusting, trust them with your life.
  33. Always do the right thing. And when you can’t, convince yourself that what you did was the right thing.
  34. Be able to take blame when you do something wrong.
  35. Don’t always ask for credit when you do something right.
  36. Don’t rush into a relationship because you don’t like being single. You’re better off alone than with someone you don’t truly love.
  37. Actions speak louder than words.
  38. Don’t speak too fast. Every word you’ve ever said has led to where you are this very moment. Choose your words prudently.
  39. Cherish every moment, for every second spent is a second you will never get back.
  40. Live life to the fullest. No one will hate you for living life too fully.
  41. Don’t you ever wish you were dead.
  42. Never forget where home is.
  43. Don’t be the girl he cheats with.
  44. Don’t be the girl he cheats on.
  45. You’re never too old to need your mom.
  46. If he doesn’t accept you for who you are, walk away.
  47. If he makes you cry, walk away.
  48. Sometimes walking away is the hardest decision you’ll have to make.
  49. You are strong enough to make that decision.
  50. College is the greatest time of your life. Make the most out of it. :)
