A reason

All things happen, for a reason.

It might be divine intervention, or it could be just pure laziness to restart the process because your session has timed out. The latter took place during lunch time yesterday; about 24 hours ago. I decided it was finally time to book my flight tickets to Jakarta and Bali. I did the search, picked the flights, entered the relevant information but stopped short as I was getting hungry.

Then, just as I completed booking for the flight to Bali (from Jakarta, no less), I switched tabs to complete the booking for the other flight.

“Your session has timed out. Please restart the process”

Are the rough words of what was on the pop up. I got lazy and decided that I’d just do it when I get home.

Fast-forward to 19:42, message from Syafiq said, and I quote:

“In Flames coming to sg sia! July 20th”

My first thought was, “Shit. That’s the day I’d fly to Jakarta; in the morning!”

A bit of a back and forth later, I decided that I would skip the first day of We The Fest and go catch In Flames instead; flying off the next day. As it is, this would be In Flames first performance here in Singapore and when else would they be back? That got to me. Let’s just hope that I don’t end up missing Lorde, Odesza or the Neighbourhood.

Procrastination does pay off sometimes, heh.

P/S: just checked, definitely not missing Odesza as they’re performing in Singapore on the 20th as well! yassssss.

fail, so much fail.

Man. Just gotta say that this blog has been such a fail.

Short-term interest on my side has led to no updates in like 8 months.

what has happened in the past 8 months? Load.

Zul oh Zul, so much fail.

Procrastination Part II

So I have been back from my trip for close to two weeks now, and I have to start on my post-trip review. Mind you, in my head, I was going to blog/write whenever I had time to sit down with a cup of coffee while I was there. (as you can tell, I didn’t do such a thing)

I have been kinda caught up with work and definitely not feeling very much into writing a post. Though, I have been occasionally sharing snippets from the trip on instagram.

See below:

Just me and the United Trinity. #awkwardfaceisawkward #GGMU #MUFC

Well, that is a quick preview of what went down. A proper review is overdue and one that I will write up and post within the next few weeks.

till the next time,

Procrastination

What is procrastination?

By definition:

prə(ʊ)ˌkrastɪˈneɪʃ(ə)n/
noun 
  1. the action of delaying or postponing something 

It’s as simple as that. Putting off a task you’re supposed to complete at a certain time only to do it at a later date, that is procrastination.

What is procrastination to me?

Procrastination is not doing everything I’ve listed in head (yeah, I’ll have to work on putting it on a proper list) only to regret not doing it in the first place.

Procrastination is keeping all my ideas in my head and not jotting it down. I lose most if not all of my ideas. I really gotta work on this.

Procrastination is not starting this blog after a certain “hangout” so I can shade. But it’s all good now, live and and let live.

Procrastination is not picking up hobbies that I’ve been telling people I want to pick up but never actually made time for.

Namely:

  • Ukulele
  • Modern Calligraphy
  • Electronic music
  • Solo adventure into post-rock
  • Videography / Photography

Procrastination is not planning and booking and researching about my upcoming trip.

Procrastination is everything and yet it doesn’t amount to much. Perhaps it’s just an excuse that I hide behind, because all I truly am is lazy.

It’s a character flaw that I truly have to work on but honestly, it has it’s perks too. Like, if I were to pick up all the above listed hobbies, I would have spent even more money, so in a sense, my bank account can thank me for being such a procrastinator.

Well that’s all that is in my mind currently.

Peace out.
