Breaking the Barriers

As time goes by, there is one point where everything clashes together and you just want to give up. There is a point in time where everything piles up inside you and you feel the lid about to explode in your mind. That point was now.

Yet… deep inside me, I had the urge to want to do something as cool, as memorable, as this. Although at the moment, all I want is for summer to come, for limitless slumber, for unscheduled days, to be able to go eat wherever I want. But will I not regret it?

However, there’s the other side of my brain that questions this. What if I get embarrassed? What if, like the other one, it will become ultimate failure and wasn’t worth the try? Do I really need to go through the process of being embarrassed?

Now THAT is a big barrier. I don’t get this thought often, but when it hits me, it builds up, stays strong, and I tend to move away, towards another road that is open.

There is a big barrier, that must mean this is the wrong road. That was the thought I got most of the times, being a hypocrite, yes I am. I tell the world to break the barrier, yet when it comes to me, I do the opposite. And that is going to change. A thought came into mind, wondering what would have happened if I had just climbed over that boulder, as hard and risky as it is, and how my life would have been different. Would it have been far easier, more exciting, less stressful as it is now? Or would it have had no difference at all? Maybe it would have been worse.

12/18 Quote of the Day

“One of the very nicest things about life is the way we regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”

-Luciano Pavarotti

Did you know that in France, the most important time in their day is eating? They get off a whole couple of hours to sit and properly eat between work! I wish we would be able to do that… 🙂

Eating Habits

Hello there chickeneers~ long time no talk eh? So I’ve been thinking of posting a while ago but due to my unexpectedly busy schedule, I had to push my posting till now~
To think about it, I had bought the DVD for Les Miserables and watched it. It wa quite a touching musical which impacted a lot of points. One point that touched me the most was the fact that people there would do anything for food and home- the two necessary things in life. A lot of you all know the importance of homes as you would feel when you come home from a long vacation, so I’ll touch on the food.


As summer started and I met up with my cousins to go on a tour round famous places in California and beyond, I found out how important food is. During the tour, our regular schedule was to wake up at 4 in the morning, and eat breakfast at 5. You’re probably thinking, how is she able to do such a thing? Well truth be told, it was had at first. I am normally a person who skip breakfast, but knowing that between then and lunch, there was going to be a lot going on so I decided I should at least force feed myself. Of course, I had to go through a lot to become as wise as that.


Remember how I had said that I used to not eat breakfast? Well because I’m a type of person who gets hungry often, I would eat something at 9, then a part of lunch at 11, and would eat the rest of lunch at, well, lunch time. When I get home, I’ll be tired and hungry because I used up all my energy at track, so I would eat dinner at 4. But I would be hungry by the time it was 7 so I would eat like a fruit or something. But this happened almost daily until I got a big problem.

He who comes first, eats first.

Eike von Repkow (~1220)Sachsenspiegel

It’s a simple quote today, but it’s something I live by. Whenever my mother screams, “Dinner’s ready!” I jump out of my seat, regardless of what I’m doing, and rush out to eat. It’s a habit now!

“An alcoholic is someone you don’t like who drinks as much as you do.”

~Dylan Thomas

You know, I don’t do alcohol (besides when I add it to food when I’m cooking) but I like this quote because I am sure we can all relate to this through a lot.

Food wise, we can say that

An obese person is someone who eats more than you.

I thought hey, that’s so true. And it’s true when we put this in terms with racism, sexism, and all the other discrimination.

lesson learned: just because one is different from you doesn’t mean that person is lower than you.

5/31 Quote of the Day

I think that food ties us to our community and our traditions, and it’s the thing that makes us feel good and connected.

-Kathy Freston.


This, I know for sure is true. With food, you can connect with people and become closer, have a stronger relationship. Something about food just really ties things together well and makes you happy inside. At my house, we eat dinner at the table together, all four of us. Even though sometimes I feel like I’m too busy with homework and exams to eat dinner with the family, afterwards I feel better and happier. The dinner releases some of my stress and makes me take a break for studying for a while, as well as allow myself to have a daily chat with my family. As you can probably tell, my family’s pretty close. 🙂
