LYRICS
Cut the cord
And face tomorrow
Smash the door down
Takin’ charge
All the way…

On the edge and goin’ under
While the plastic world around me
Surrounds me
And holds me down

Blasted off into the thunder
Won’t admit that they’d just ground me
If they found me
As I am now

You I couldn’t fool anymore, though
You were born rebel, a fighter like me
You were more than willin’ to break my guard
And set the fire free

Abide by the Vibe: Ongoing Story

Standard

————————————————————————————————————–
Abide by the Vibe: Your everyday “vibe” is created on your own terms. Every action and thought will affect this “vibe” constantly. Will you choose to be fueled by a happy “vibe” or will you destroy yourself with a negative one?
————————————————————————————————————–

“We all abide by the vibe we create for ourselves.”

I like to believe that everything happens for a reason in life. Everyone has their respective story they are constantly telling.

Are some destined for happiness? Despair? Triumph? Failure? Or perhaps something completely unexpected?

To find out one’s inevitable ending, one must simply live life to see how the tale pans out.

“We all abide by the vibe we create for ourselves.”

Random Kanji Knowledge: Kizuna

Standard

Random Kanji Knowledge time!

Today’s kanji is 絆, which is read as kizuna (key-zoo-na). 絆 means “bonds” (as in bonds that are emotional, relationship-driven and otherwise.)

絆 is a word you hear the Japanese say a lot. It’s important to talk about the “bonds” you have with others and what it means to you.

Song: Ambiguous

Artist: GARNiDELiA

By Judee Zee.
Once the threads of fate are severed
Our destinies will change forever

I tried to be someone that I’m not
In a world of fear and distraught
I can’t breathe, I had to leave

As I walked down my own runway 
I put on a mask of disdain
To hide this vile and wicked smile

Even if i fake my uncertainty 
You’re the only one who can see right through me
Once we both felt hatred and pride
but now we’re standing side by side 

No one else can take away what’s meant for the both of us
A fever so Ambiguous
is not even enough to stop these beating hearts

Once the threads of fate are severed
Our destinies will change forever 
So that we can see the dawn of a new day together

You and I will always be connected

The 54th Deadline: Wild Card

Standard


————————————————————————————————————–
The 54th Deadline: Life is a series of chances to achieve something by a given point. You might very well miss out on opportunities if you are not careful. However, I firmly believe that God gives us plenty of means to find our way, even if we mess up here and there. After all, life demands deadlines. Try and try again until your goals and dreams are realized. Strive to finish on a successful note with whatever you set out to do. Always.
————————————————————————————————————–
If people are like cards in this elaborate game of life, then I am no doubt a wild card.

My value is ambiguous. My purpose is further shrouded in unpredictability. Regardless, I am cool with this.

Other people are more obvious about what they bring to the table. They already know what they represent as cards and nothing more.

When it is a non-wild card’s turn to be played, they contribute toward life in some way and that’s that. They fulfill their respective role in the name of the game.

However, as a wild card, my time to shine isn’t so obvious. It isn’t apparent until all the other pieces are in play. And then, and only then, will everything make sense.

“We all abide by the vibe we create for ourselves.”

Sorry for the lack of posts for a while. I would like to get back into the blogging swing of things.

Lately, I have been seeking a lot of guidance from all kinds of sources.

Soon, I hope to have everything make sense again.

Born to Be

“Born to be” by ナノ (nano.)

Translation of Lyrics (Click for Source)
OOH YEAH!!!

They bring me down
All the world is stereotypical
Playing out rules , but act another
Look now , you thought you had me by the upper hand
But I see through the cynical face you’ve covered

Four : Unleash the beast that lies inside of you
Three: Take on the fire that burns in front of you
Two: Let out the fear you feel surrounding you
One: Become the soul that you were born to be

If you lost your strategy dream that you’ve lived up until now with
Break the handle, and continue on with your ra ra-raging dreams
If you’re challenged by this life without any thrill
If you’re going to embrace these reckless emotions
Then surely you have to brace yourself
And break away from yourself

If it’s a destiny that steals everything from you
What should you go on through life believing?
Ask yourself, the way there’s nothing to lose or die for
If you fear your past scars
Are you prepared to throw even your future away?
The choice is yours to make
This is what I choose to live for

I’ve been gradually changing my attitude about everything. I don’t see the world in the same light as I did even just a few years ago.

My parents brought me up with the notion that hard work pays off, and this is something I do hold dear to my heart. However, I never really factored in the COMPETITION in life that has become way too obvious and apparent. Sometimes, to get ahead, you really need to be BETTER than everyone else.

Your peers.

Your friends.

Your “rivals.”

EVERYONE else. Continue reading
