off to Singapore

By the time you read this, I’ll be on an airplane, flying to Singapore. I’ll be there for a few days. I’m watching Sigur Ros in Fort Canning. I’m so excited I can barely breathe. I have scheduled some posts just to keep my blog running while I’m gone but, in truth, I think I’m going to be on such a high from seeing Sigur Ros live.

I’ve actually finished all my work that I have to do and I’m going to be flying there with no thoughts of work hanging over my head. I’m going with my good friend, Cez, and we’ve never been out of the country together before. I bought these tickets in advance, back in July, when I was expecting a super good year and that I’ll have the money to do this and then things got in the way and some stuff didn’t push through and I am not as financially stable as I thought I was going to be this month but the time has come and I’m not missing this for the world.

Anyway. The ticket has already been bought. Everything is set. This is what I work hard for anyway. I’ve loved Sigur Ros since I first heard them in the Vanilla Sky soundtrack so many years ago.

 

This is going to be so epic. I can hardly wait.

    • Hi Cedric,

      Sorry, I didn’t have full access to the Internet while I was there so I didn’t get to see your comment until now. I’m sorry to hear that.

      Could you share with me your e-mail and maybe we can talk on e-mail?

        • I understand that it is still fresh news and all but, really, there’s no need for this kind of drama. It won’t do you any good and it’s counter-productive.

          Just look online and you’ll find out that there are lots of people who are still doing amazing things even if they are HIV positive. There are people out there who are living exemplary lives and really doing something with themselves despite the virus. To give up is to give up and there’s nothing romantic or honorable about it.

          We are all struggling and it happened. I’m sorry that it happened to you. I’m sorry it happened to anyone at all. But to just give up is to offend everyone who cares for you. You also end up offending all those who are suffering and fighting and struggling everyday to stay alive and do something with their lives.

          Grieve. Let it out and then start working on getting better and stronger. Enough of the drama. It only makes things worse and it doesn’t do anything for anybody, especially you.

          I’m sorry if I sound tough or heartless but I have spoken to too many people who go into the drama and stay there. It’s not a good place to be and it delays everything. You have to start the healing process and you have to start it now.
