#nowplaying Jay-Z featuring Beyonce – Bonnie and Clyde

Twenty-first century, Asian, doing what we like to do our way.

Twenty-one. Young. Hungry. Chasing dreams and goals, discovering purposes. Making our marks in the world, leaving legacies behind for the future generations to come. Forces of nature, forces to be reckoned with. The world is our oyster, and we live openly and on ever-expanding levels. We want to learn, grow, develop. Evolve. Aspiring visionaries, with a strong desire to strive and change the world. We choose which doors to open, which waves to ride. It is a chase, a hunt, a pursuit, to discover and explore every facet of our imagination and our world. We want to live large, think and dream big, achieve big. Movers and shakers, we dislike wasting even a minute, choosing to be up and about. We live our lives to the fullest, right to the very brim, making the most of it and everything else. Carpe diem.

We do not settle for average. We want dynamics, flavour, diversity. Exceptionality. We are advocates of individuality, and personal style in every aspect of our lives. There is just a delicious wildness to it all, a sort of rush no drug can ever live up to, something that excites the senses to such an irresistible extent. Because if you have it, own it. And flaunt it as well, if you like. Open up your lives, live the way you want. Own your lives, own who you are. Live it, and with intent. Be bold, be fearless. Go for what you want, and hone your craft.

And the best thing is having someone beside you while you are at it, shooting for the stars together. It is a feeling beyond elation, one of which words can hardly describe, because today, I got my thoroughest boy with me. He rides with me, the new Beyonce and Jay-Z (simply because I like the way it rhymes).

I’m mashin’ the gas, he’s grabbin’ the wheel, it’s true to the heart. We complement each other, connecting and communicating on similar wavelengths. It is not about dominating, but elevating one another to higher levels, constantly pushing boundaries and challenging ourselves. He is my pillar, my rock, my guardian angel, my guiding light. He gives me that push when I need it, to fuel my drive. We have our respective, individual goals but when the time calls for it, I’m right back to being his soldier. Supporting, encouraging, loving. We work as a team, because we are a team. Partners in crime, cruising down the global highway, conquering the world bit by bit. Because I’m a rider, and he’s a roller. Put us together, how are they going to stop us?

I am incredibly thankful for him and for everything he has done for and with me so far on this voyage together, because whatever I lack, he’s right over my shoulder. And when he’s off track, I’ll be keeping him focused. So let’s lock this down like it’s supposed to be.

Well-behaved women rarely make history.
Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

A quote I picked up from the book I’m currently reading. Personally, I think this applies to both genders. There is something within all of us that wants to come out and play. So go, run wild, roam free. Let’s go get ’em.

PS. I was actually planning to post this up for our sixth month (which is in about two weeks or so) but as they say, what better time than now?

#nowplaying Top of the World by The Cataracs featuring Dev

It’s definitely been quite a while since I’ve last written, so I’ve just decided to make a commitment of sorts – more to myself than to anyone else – to start (and thus continue) writing consistently once again, especially since my final year at university is drawing to a close, what with graduation being just around the corner, after the final onslaught of second-semester papers of course – which is now less than a month away. And what better way to celebrate this bittersweet closure and welcome new, exciting experiences than to make this commitment to write, discover and indulge?

Plenty of things have happened since my last proper entry (pre-You Know You Get Me High, Won’t You Take Me for a Ride), and I’ve had so many different experiences since, albeit the relatively short span of time. Turning twenty one was significant to say the least, and it felt like I was from then on exposed to a whole new world, as of yet untouched and unexplored, just waiting for me to leave my mark in it – I think I’d like mine in black and gold, with tonnes of character, thank you.

I’ve learnt and grown so much as an individual in the past month (and two weeks or so), it’s been such an enlightening discovery – of myself, the world and the people around me, and this illuminating journey, suffice to say, has impacted me with a much more positive outlook and mindset, opening my eyes to colours so brilliantly vibrant they keep me completely and entirely transfixed. I’ve come a long way indeed, but I now know this is just the beginning of an incredible voyage, one beyond any sort of comparison whatsoever. To the wonderful individuals who have played a part in all this, supporting and encouraging me to strive to my fullest potential – thank you, from the very bottom of my heart.

On another (yet similar) note, I’ve a number of projects coming up, and lots to do before summer 2012 rolls around. This summer shall be a little bit different from the others so far in the past two years, still a tad uncertain at this point in time but I’m looking at it as a glass half-full. Third time’s a charm, after all! Regardless, I’ll be embracing my future with open arms, an open mind and an open heart. Making it happen.

You are the Michelangelo of your own life. The David you are sculpting is you.

So here’s to creating beautiful masterpieces. Cheers. *clinks glass
