That I Would Be Good

After five wearing a green cardie, dad's shirt and Hugo Boss tie
I saw this outside of Robinson and I love it

Few months back with Nizam, in FCUK tee

Coffee and gossips with Shikin in Springfield tee

What's inside the Sole What bag?! Wearing an old tee, skinny jeans, carry-all and Reebok Sir Jam shoes
I don't have time to write. Just pictures and this lyrics of one favorite song that comes to my head.
Song playing inside my head: Alanis Morisette's That I Would Be Good
That I would be good even if I did nothing
ThatI would be good even if I got the thumbs down
That I would be good if I got and stayed sick
That I would be good even if I gained ten pounds
That I would be fine even if I went bankrupt
That I would be good if I lost my hair and my youth
That I would be great if I was no longer queen
That I would be grand if I was not all knowing
That I would be loved even when I numb myself
That I would be good even when I am overwhelmed
That I would be loved even when I was fuming
That I would be good even if I was clingy
That I would be good even if I lost sanity
That I would be goodwhether with or without you....

Not Fair

Wearing Tees by United Color of Benetton, necklace by F21, vintage jeans and Reebok Sir Jam

There are just so many things in life that started to bring me down. I'm not happy. I'm bitter. I'm complaining and I'm second-guessing myself again...

And I'm tired. I'm so damn tired. I fell asleep in the toilet and while standing inside a crowded train...

Teacher's Day

As much as I hate the red-colored company t-shirt that I have to wear every Friday, I can't help but realize that I am still a teacher, with or without it.

They were having this little surprise celebration that Friday morning with ribbons, balloons and all. They even dedicated one whole wall for students' Teacher's Day wishes for their favorite teachers.

To my own surprise, I got not less than five messages from my students and one of them read:

To my favorite teacher Hannef,
We live ham...
Trans: To my favorite teacher- Hannef,
We love him...

How sweet is that? Read more!

Life in Songs

Wearing:Vintage tee, Northern Rock skinny jeans, necklace from Forever 21 and NEW Reebok Sir Jam sneakers

1. Carole King’s So Far Away
I haven’t been home for quite some times. I have been keeping myself busy with this life that I have right here. It’s hectic… just hectic. I missed my family so much, my bedroom and mom’s new flat-screen TV…

2.The Beatles’ Let It Be
Things had been awesome and ‘scarily’ smooth sailing for the past couple of weeks. It scared me because I know there would be some rough patches ahead of me. It happens all the time. When things are simply too good to be true and ridiculously too easy for me, I know I am a few steps away from some kind of hell. When the time comes, I may cry or simply breakdown because I just don’t know what to do.

3.Chicago’s If You Leave Me Now
Sometimes I have to be reminded of how wonderful it is to be in love. It’s been quite sometimes=)

4.Jeff Buckley’s Hallelujah
In helpless situations and there’s nothing much that I can do…

5.Coldplay’s Postcards From Far Away
On repeat throughout my one hour train ride home… The trees, dried leaves, houses, street lights, blue sky, sleepy towns… and I’m floating.

6.Norah Jones’s Long Day Is Over
After half the day at work… Exhausted mind, aching body, stiffed muscles and sore feet… I just need to step out of my work clothes and lie down to sleep before doing it all over again the next day.

7.Corinne Bailey Rae’s Put Your Records On
I laugh each time I think about my friends and all the troubles that we went through in uni. That was three years behind us without us even knowing it. Time had passed, we are different and nothing will remain the same.

Cheers to the present and to whatever crap that we have ahead of us! Read more!
