It's no fun being stuck: I can't write my literature review because i haven't read enough, and I can't read enough because i keep fallin' asleep while readin'! It's so annoying! Despite my nerdy-nose-always-in-a-book kind of face, sorry, me and Books ended our relationship since junior college and university. Academic reading killed the reading star.

I did love reading, i did. Past tense.

So, if you've ever let me borrow a book of yours out of sheer goodwill to share knowledge, I'm sorry you haven't seen it in a while...

I ought to start a self project, to pick up a book and begin enjoying a good story, for a start.

On a completely different note, and for the sake of having pictures in this post, here are two REALLY PRETTY DRESSES! Plucked them off xinmsn.com. Inspiration for a wedding dress. :)

Love the blend of cool, calm, flowy colours, like water and the sunset sky coming together into one canvas. And the overall structure of the dress. Too bad I lack long legs. Meh.
Love the print, colours and structure.

i m still into books. i read non frict cos i m so so sick of romance wich is so tacky. unrealistic and predictable. i like books wich give me valuable insight on how to solve my problems. like how to deal with difficult pple, hw to find peace in life, quotes by famous pple,(even anon), books tat teach me a thing or two to how to live my life. still learning hw to be more critical of books though, i believe must be selectively decide wich philosophy and advice to take.
