Rantglass - because that's how things are.


We brought most – if not everything – upon ourselves, do we not?

“So do you want to know when you will die?”

I felt like I have a revolver readily trained on my forehead.

“Actually, I think I’m more interested in the how, not the when.”

“ ...you’re weird.”

Yeah, as if I do not get that often enough already.


Well, this is it.

In with the new, out with the old. Rinse and repeat.

The season for best-of lists; of obligatory recaps and reflections of the year past.

The time for to-do lists; of the making (and breaking) of resolutions for the year to come.

Recently, I noticed that most of us have been having a little amusement out of constantly saying “see you next year!”

Mmhmm. Yeah, I am having a ball of a fun laughing at that, too.

In any case, nothing spectacular has happened to me during the past 364 days. I think. If there were truly any, they would have jumped instantly to mind (though perhaps falling under the charms of a Norwegian duo and a British rock act is good enough).

To sum it up: it has been a rather mediocre year. No notable achievements to be proud of. No high-flying experiences to cherish. I did not make even so much of a dent on anyone’s lives.

Most disappointingly, I failed to change the world.

  3. Ezwan – Have a good 2007 yourself, too! :D

  4. Hmm…look at it this way. You enrich and entertain people’s lives by posting good reads on your blog. Pretty much, you don’t have to change THE world, you just have to change YOUR world. Oh yeah, and Happy New Year. Haha…

  5. Kwok Weng – Yes, having Rantglass in itself has already changed my world. :)

    Wah… but I don’t think my entries are that good enough to entertain readers. If it were so, then I would be getting thousands of hits per day; approached for product placements/endorsements (haha!); make it on TV shows. Those would change my world too, but I don’t need all that.

    Happy New Year! :)

  6. oh, yes, that would change the world. but if you wrote the sort of entries that would get thousands of hits per day; approached for product placements/endorsements (haha!); make it on TV shows, you’d change the world and make it stupid.

  7. Soporific – Uggh, I really wouldn’t want all that – TV appearances, product endorsements, pfft!

    I’d still like to change the world though… just don’t quite know how, when, or if I’ll ever achieve that.
