Poetry - Sugar Rush!!

Here's something that my friend Daniella and I did a while back on yahoo IM ^_^


Me:
maybe some coffee oughtta do the trick...??
I come forth,
gallant on my steed,
racing thru the lands,
nothing can match my speed!!!

Fear not me ladie...i shalt save thee from the horror that is sugar-rush!!


Dan:
kind sir kind sir,
the drink in your cup, must you slightly stir,
forgive me for;
the ingredients i must keep a hush,
now thee can enjoy thy sugar rush!!!!


Me:
fair lady, sweet as a flower,
I thank thee for this refreshing drink,
but now I'm in a muddle, you see,
for what its contents are, I really have to think.

So pray, tell me, oh maiden,
what have you put in there,
that has made my teeth so black,
and your hair, oh so fair?


Dan:
bound by a spell i am,
if i spill the contents ill be in quite of a jam,
for the potions have notions and notions are evil,
i'm afraid the truth will bring about social upheaval!!!

but fear not, for thy kindness shall never be forgot,
the drink u drank will raise thy rank,

Where IS the Love?

Reading’s an interesting hobby. Books are the best friends you can have…or so the saying goes. This has proven true for me from time to time. But the problem with me is that I’m more of a compulsive reader…once I pick up a book, I can’t stop till I’ve finished it, often reading through the night. Well, I just got done reading this really…different..fanfic of Harry Potter (ah, not a kid’s book anymore, once you read this one hehehe..). It’s not anything bad actually. Just that it completely diverts from the main theme that Rowling was following, rather leading to in her original series, and in doing so, becomes more realistic, dealing in the complexities of human emotions and the different relationships that Harry and his friends go through in their fight against Voldemort. 

At the same time, remember the “OOH! Magic’s so cool!” effect of the first two books of Harry Potter? And how they brought home the fascinating world of wizards and witches, of goblins and giants, of dragons and pho…

What are they teaching us? Ideal education? Not really....

Our education system, is it really that good? I mean, sure we produce some brilliant IT brains, IIT is a brand by itself, and quite some laurels in our pockets. But that's not what I mean. Leave all that out of the picture for now coz it comes after what my point of discussion is; which is our education system.

All through our school life we're made to believe that what we do in school, our course-ware, the subjects we study are all important in our "later life as some of our teachers may put it. Then, we realize, at a point when most of us do not even know what we're good at let alone what we want to become, that we have to choose... Hah! Choose what? Science, commerce, arts? It's something that was becoming such a problem that ultimately the powers-that-be created clichés. If you're a good student, you HAVE to take up science, or you're wasting your life and career. Average student? Oh commerce's for you...Or MAYBE you're the creative type...go fo…
