Hello, my name is Grace, and in about ten years or so you'll be buying my premortem biographies where they'll be flying off the shelves like Harry Potter on a Summoning Charm spree. Just kidding.

    'Cos Now I Have To Pretend That I Don't Really Care
    click to go back to the top.

    I can't believe I forgot this. Every time I think Vanessa's a slut, or I hate the way she poses, and that Ashley Tisdale's ever so much better, I look at this video, and I think, oh, so there was a time when she looked so innocent and almost like a role model. This song really meant a lot to me.

    When There Was Me And You, by Vanessa Hudgens
    It's funny when you find yourself
    Looking from the outside
    I'm standing here but all I want
    Is to be over there
    Why did I let myself believe
    Miracles could happen
    Cause now I have to pretend
    That I don't really care

    I thought you were my fairytale
    A dream when I'm not sleeping
    A wish upon a star
    That's coming true
    But everybody else could tell
    That I confused my feelings with the truth
    When there was me and you

    I swore I knew the melody
    That I heard you singing
    And when you smiled
    You made me feel
    Like I could sing along
    But then you went and changed the words
    Now my heart is empty
    I'm only left with used-to-be's
    And once upon a song

    Now I know you're not a fairytale
    And dreams were meant for sleeping
    And wishes on a star
    Just don't come true

    Cause now even I can tell
    That I confused my feelings with the truth
    Because I liked the view
    When there was me and you

    I can't believe that
    I could be so blind
    It's like you were floating
    While I was falling
    And I didn't mind

    Cause I liked the view
    Thought you felt it too
    When there was me and you

    ...Now I feel like doing some emotional blogskin.

    You Lift My Feet Off The Ground
    click to go back to the top.

    This post shall be dedicated to excerpts of love songs that I particularly like.

    This is not what I intended
    I always swore to you I'd never fall apart
    You always thought that I was stronger
    I may have failed,
    but I have loved you from the start.
    Hold your breath,
    because tonight will be the night
    that I will fall for you over again.
    -Fall for You, by Secondhand Serenade

    Hey Stephen, I've been holding back this feelin'
    So I've got some things to say to you
    I've seen it all, so I thought
    But I've never seen nobody shine the way you do
    I can't help it if you look like an angel
    Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain so
    Come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you
    Can't help it if there's no one else
    I can't help myself

    -Hey Stephen, by Taylor Swift

    I haven't slept at all in days
    It's been so long since we've talked
    And I have been here many times
    I just don't know what I'm doing wrong
    What can I do to make you love me
    What can I do to make you care
    What can I say to make you feel this
    What can I do to get you there
    There's only so much I can take
    And I just got to let it go
    And who knows I might feel better
    If I don't try and I don't hope

    -What Can I Do, by The Corrs

    You lift my feet off the ground
    You spin me around
    You make me crazier, crazier
    Feels like I'm falling and I,
    am lost in your eyes
    You make me crazier, crazier, crazier.
    -Crazier, by Taylor Swift

    It may not be much directly from me, but looking at the song lyrics, it's like seeing my thoughts from various times in my life written out in a far better (and far more musical) way than I could ever have expressed.

    I think I should've replied everyone on my cbox except Eugene and Jlee, so I'll start this post with tag replies- something I haven't made a habit of in a very, very long time.

    @eugene: (typed euguene! ew!) love Lucky too, I could listen to it on replay the whole day.

    @jlee: true, after a while I don't really see what all the hype's about, but you have to give it to Meyer, she's a good writer. I haven't read the series in some time and since it's the holidays I can't borrow the books from the school library. That's why they're on my wishlist.


    Am back in BKK already, caught an evening flight yesterday after visiting catechism class (yay! I can't wait to visit it again: next time, I'm going to try to sit in for the whole class before I get used to gatecrashing final prayers) and eating lunch at this Japanese-Italian place at Marina... Square? with De-gu, Joshua, Clara, Nat and Auntie Jo (their helper). Natalie's so cute! but she didn't recognise me at first. It took a while for her to warm up to this strange girl she hasn't seen in months.

    Watched most of Hannah Montana: The Movie on the flight, but to my utter horror they cut off the sound a lot of times and finally just shut off the movie altogether when we were about to land. I'm planning to catch it in cinemas either here or in Singapore when I'm free, but it won't be the same... Lucas Till! ♥ didn't quite expect his voice to be that deep, but that just proves how ... dumb? I am. I didn't expect the guys' voices to be that deep at batch outing either, so.

    Am browsing through TS pictures again. This time, I'm thinking of making a few icons, and then maybe another blogskin. It occurred to me yesterday that what I'm doing isn't exactly blending and therefore my sense of accomplishment should be forfeited, or something. If you look at increasingly-'s work, what I'm doing is more like cropping images and putting a texture and words to them, which is kind of like... cheating.

    Oh well.

    Look, I know it's my third skin since this blog was created (...yesterday) and it's only been 5 posts. But I seem to be on a collage-blending spree! And it's turning out fine! So you should be happy for me, even though I'm still far, far away from being someone really pro like increasingly- on BS.com. Don't you love this skin? I only created it so (a) I wouldn't have to go change my cbox colours to blyew, and (b) to use these gorgeous Taylor Swift pictures which I found at this fansite. They have a huge array of pictures, and by huge I mean ohmygoshTHAThuge? kind of huge. (: Please tag, I need more tags.

    toChingYing: I know they still have polos, but when I looked at BHG yesterday they weren't the polos I like. They did have some pretty... interesting? (and by that I mean the dubious kind) velvety polos. Which I don't think anybody will be wearing in this heat. I'm looking for thin cotton.

    I know I'm supposed to be finishing the Spanish book but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS SKIN!!! (vg/Hey Stephen 2) I think I'm going to resubmit it for the collagetition after all, as well as use it here, because that was my original intention until I realized that I would have a better chance in the collagetition using that skin rather than vg/Crazier.

    ACCOMPLISHMENT! I actually slaved at an image that appeared... presentable! It's now in a blogskin titled vg/Crazier, for the song Taylor Swift sang for Hannah Montana: The Movie (the song's great, by the way, so check it out on YouTube!!) and you *are* going to click here to preview, rate and fave it :D

    I promised myself that this blog would be for *serious* blogging, with maybe snippets of my writing, and as little twit talk or computer jargon on it, but already I'm failing. Oh dear. As it is my previous post probably wasn't too good, detailing all my excessive spending and such :X

    Worked this morning by reading 4 chapters of the Pobre Ana sequel Sr. E gave me to read over the summer. There're 8 chapters in total, so I'm halfway through... After that my mother wants me to work on some Chinese assessment books :X I suppose I won't be able to accomplish much today. The blogskin took much more time than I expected, 'specially since I'm submitting for the Collagetition which requires direct linking for all images, and the GG site is lagging much. GRAH. I feel like jumping up and screaming something that doesn't really make sense, like "BLISTERING BARNACLES!"

    Sorry, been reading LOTS of Tintin comics lately ;P

    [/edit] I just might create a quick blogskin for this one. Contrary to what I said in the previous post, the big headers are slowly strangling me.

    Santa's Little Love Affair

    I'm really sorry to those people out there who hate the big headers and the bright pink and outstanding orange, but I like them and that's all that matters 'cos this is my blog :D If you haven't relinked me, hurry up!

    I spent SGD 70.00 the day Cache Memories was created. It might seem like a lot of money but, as rare as following may seem, I actually managed to get really comfortable stuff that I predict I'll be wearing a lot in the months (years?) to come. [Then again, I predicted that once I got my sneakers I'd be wearing them with my dresses a la Taylor Swift, and it's been months and I haven't done that yet.]

    Here's what I bought:
    1. White BF tee (long-sleeve, button up, just the way I like it :D), Cotton On, SGD 10.00
    2. Blue-yellow checked ballet flats, Cotton On, two for SGD 25.00
    3. Faded silver ballet flats, Cotton On, two for SGD 25.00
    4. Olive cuffed capris, FQ&L, SDG 16.00
    5. White and black cuffed capris, Surfer's Paradise, SGD 19.00

    Surfer's Paradise doesn't have my cotton polos anymore D: If I'd known how well it'd fit when I bought it, I would've bought ten at least! Now I only have one and it's threatening to become too small to wear, like my first pair of FQ&L capris did. (Which is why I bought pretty much the same design in M instead of S.) -Ah, the pangs of growing up :D
