The night Ainslie called me at 1.28AM and freaked out!
I tried to write a song the other day to release some pent-up emotions. Better that than go out and shoot everyone (like a particular tutor of mine once advised the class NOT to do just before giving us back our assignments … “it’s not the end of the world if you get a bad mark” — tell that to my parents please !). Wow, long parentheses comment ! I had a tune going but every word that came out of my mouth sounded like gibberish.
“Have you ever had the urge to take out a knife …”
Don’t worry, it was nothing morbid .. Haven’t you ever had the urge to take out a knife and cut up some onions just to see how long it takes you to cry ? Well .. neither have I ! Anyway, more song-writing attempts and more SERIOUS song-writing attempts this summer (cause’ previous attempts were mainly for procrastination purposes). Though, not sure if it’ll be distraction enough from the unbearable heat I’m sure we’ll all be facing together ! I’m hoping for snow, and you ?
So for now, I’m sticking to covers. This one’s pretty [insert derogatory adjective] and ridden with mistakes due to my imperfect nature but hopefully you’ll still think I’m amazing, just the way I am :-P I guess in this way it would be fitting to dedicate this [insert derogatory adjective] cover (all I can say is look at the lyrics and ignore everything else .. though I didn’t write them !) to all you imperfect, but extremely amazing people who I am so blessed to know (it sounds cheesy but I mean it). You know who you are *wink wink nod nod* .. wait .. nudge nudge ? English isn’t my first language !
Story behind title –
I used to not really care but I think I must have been somehow infected by Nicole‘s paranoia with accepting private/unknown phone calls cause’ now when I get a call from a random person I kind of panic. Well, not panic like the house is on fire, but sort of just want to run & hide sort of thing. So I don’t know why I answered when I received an unknown call at 1.28AM (yes, I usually am up at this time despite morning classes). I guess I just had this special feeling about it. Special indeed. It was Ainslie (!) freaking out about our finance group assignment which is due today at 5pm. But now all is sorted out and high distinction here we come ! X-D For future reference, don’t call me on a private/hidden/dodgy number because I might cower in my closet.
