Keeping Death In Mind

March 10, 2010. Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Late morning.

I pulled on my swim trunks, trainers, and a tank top and walked out of my little guesthouse room, sliding through the cramped restaurant strewn with tables, and out into the hot, dusty air of Phnom Penh. It's a hot day. It'll be good to swim after lifting weights.

I said, "No no, thank you" to the tuk-tuk drivers offering to take me somewhere in the city, pushed through the little crowd, and out onto the street. The streets in Cambodia more resemble alleyways than streets, and I navigate around people and vehicles.

I went down to the end of the street, turned left, and skirted along close to the local restaurants, half-tent half-storefront type places to get food. I stepped into the crosswalk, the Hotel Cambodiana rising in front of me. I check right and then left, and I watch left as I cross, watching for oncoming traffic.

A loud scream rings out. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Christmas already?

On Shut Up and Take My Hand

It's Christmas already? Well obviously not, there's another month to go but I think you all know what I mean. There's decorations in the shops, people are talking about what they'd like, my sisters have already started their Christmas shopping. Me being me and me being lazy, I never really bother with Christmas shopping and if I do, its about three days before Christmas...ehehehe...

Our school does Secret Santa so every year there is a lot of hype for that, though I have to say, maybe since we started to early, no body is as bothered as usual. I love Christmas don't get me wrong, I love everything about it, it's just generally a pleasant time, I like the vibe. But come on- doesn't it bug you that people get hyped...too early?

A month to go, a whole month! Or you could look at it as 'only a month'~ It's not like I feel it takes away from the feel of Christmas or that it makes it any less special, its just a personal pet peeve ._. Early Christmas presents are obviously awesome~ but I prefer to wait till the actual day to open them or start using them properly. Why? Umm... I like the anticipation? The excitement? And for it all to come at one day *BOOM HAPPINESS!*

This is just me kinda whining hehehe~ which I seem to be doing rather often now hmm? And it's a shorter post since (me thinks) I'll post twice today (more annoying-ness wooooo!!!) So lets end it there with a QOTD: Do you guys mind that preparations for Christmas start 'early' or do you think they start just about at the right time? Do you even celebrate/enjoy Christmas?

Onto writing the next post yaaaaaay~~ (maybe >.> gosh it'd be such a fail if I didn't actually publish the next post or something ._.) See you then
