am blogging this via e-mail from work. nothing much to report on that end – i am still struggling but i shan’t bore you with such drivel. after all i did sign up for this… torture.
it’s the world cup now but i did not catch the fever, unlike when i was 17 and 21. i remember at 17, during the world cup period i wondered when the next world cup happens again, where would i be in life? when i turned 21, i thought back to the time when i was 17 and thinking that and thought, i bet my 17-year-old self would be happy to know that at 21, i was studying in a prestigious local university and leading a pretty okay life. and at 21 i thought the same thing too – where would i be when i turn 25?
now i am here. working in one of the biggest media organisations in the country – am just a small fry here but i am here nonetheless – with an okay life.
where would i be at the next world cup, when i turn 29? will life be as good as i hope it would be?
only time will tell.
(sorry, i wish i had more that i want to write about!)

Um, if I may ask, are you already married? If not, then let me guess, at the age of 29, you’ll have a guy bothering you all day long (only if he truly loves you). 😀 Don’t mind, I’m just kidding a bit. 😀
By the way, I never got any chance to chat with you so I couldn’t know. Which media organization do you work for? I work on bdnews24.com which is the most popular and the most powerful online newspaper here in Bangladesh. It’s my part-time job since I’m still a school goer. 😉 But I sure plan to become a journalist someday in the future. Conditions are: 1. The media should be in English language; 2. The media should be global, such as the BBC or Reuters, etc.
I hope someday it will happen, although I feel that as days pass by, things turn worse, never better. I don’t understand what kind of natural joke is this.
nope, i’m not married. i’m not sure about your prediction but time will tell, right? i rather not name my office, otherwise i might have to keep this blog protected. i might write a protected post about my job – if i do you would be one of the people i will e-mail the password to. 🙂 wish you all the best in landing the dream journalist job in the future! am sure if you work towards it, it will happen somehow one way or another.
That will be great. I’m waiting for such a post. 🙂
This World Cup is a bit underwhelming and i don’t know why.
do you follow the world cup? rooting for which team? i’m as apathetic about it now as i was crazy about it then when i was 17.
Hehe…I gree with Aminul.
AT 29, if you’re married to someone who loves you a lot, you’ll be getting endless calls whenever you’re away 😉 and getting lotsa love when you’re together 😀
Yea…the worldcup’s a little too low this time. Not zapped by it at all 😦
Good luck for the days to come, at work!
As I got a supporter, now I no longer kidding. 😀 And thanks for adding that. I missed to say that she’ll be getting endless calls (plus maybe vice-versa 😉 ). Let me draw the scene: if she keeps getting endless calls from him then she’ll ‘show’ that she’s getting distracted/annoyed although the reality is opposite. 😆
hmm, i don’t know what the cards hold for me in four years’ time.
thank you, i’ll need any luck i can get!
I never really get the reason why people go mad for such events, but I didn’t recall the last time they had this World Cup either. But I got news that Australia got beaten by the Germans, courtesy of a friend from a forum. Not that I’m mad with my country or anything. But at least we have more of a ‘certain something’ than any other country; the most dangerous and poisonous animals in the world! 😛 I’ll probably be well into my traineeship, or perhaps working for another high-end company if there’s another.
good for you, lee. you are a student now, i presume? anything can happen in four years.
Yep, a student, waiting for a certain letter to come through the mail that’ll change the course of history yet to be told. Or so I think.
The World Cup! What fun it is to watch people try to commit murder by proxy by using a ball. Makes me wonder if they are at times with the excitement and cheering. We might as well have gone back through time to watch Roman slaves beat the living daylights out of each other for the sake of victory. Can you tell I’m excited too? Glad to see that you’re blogging again 🙂
omg you’re back! am so happy to see a familiar name here again. 🙂 *hugs*
