Love poem by a supreme Vietnamese composer. Wish I could translate it into English so you could understand each and every of the beautiful words. It's so damn true :(
Dại khờ - Xuân Diệu
Người ta khổ vì thương không phải cách,
Yêu sai duyên và mến chẳng nhằm người
Có kho vàng nhưng tặng chẳng tuỳ nơi
Người ta khổ vì xin không phải chỗ.
Đường êm quá ai đi mà nhớ ngó
Đến khi hay, gai nhọn đã vào xương
Vì thả lòng không kiềm chế dây cương,
Người ta khổ vì lui không được nữa.
Những mắt cạn cũng cho rằng sâu chứa;
Những tim không mà tưởng tượng tràn đầy.
Muôn nghìn đời tìm cớ dõi sương mây
Dấn thân mãi đến kiếm trời dưới đất.
Người ta khổ vì cố chen ngõ chật,
Cửa đóng bưng nên càng quyết xông vào.
Rồi bị thương người ta giữ gươm dao,
Không muốn chữa, không chịu lành thứ độc.
Maybe you can read this to me when I go to VN in Jan. I tried so hard to read it but failed miserably because it's not the kind of viet you see in mags and Conan comic books hahaha... usually they use fancy words in poems so it's a lot harder to read and understand for me haha
I translated it using an online translator but obviously it's not the same XD I thought what I read was lovely :)

Ann inspired to blog again. Well, blog about my personal life to be exact. It's been like 4 months already since I last poured my heart out here. Not like there were any cool things in this period, just that I was too lazy and busy with Serene Hours I didn't bother to come here anymore. Shame on me : (
So, I don't know where to start. My mind is a mess now but let me try. Hmm, why don't we talk about him
first. I finally decided to get in touch with him again. It's really hard because the last time I saw him in person was like 7 years ago and I doubted if he could remember my face now. But he came into my dreams so often it annoyed and made me happy at the same time. I don't know anything about dream interpreting but that must mean something. It doesn't hurt trying right? I'm going to have Debbie call him for me when I come to her house next month. Wish me luck because I really really really need it. Now that I've seen his new pictures (thanks to Google), I'm even more nervous. He's always made me feel nervous and exciting at the same time and somehow I don't think it's good at all T.T
I'm in second year at uni now. Uni is lame. I feel so bad saying this but it's the truth. I only like my History class (not actually history but I don't think they have a word for it in English) since the professor is super duper cool. She's funny and friendly and she talks about real life more than theory. I love her lesson-related stories too! However, besides that class there's none to be thrilled about, which sucks big time!
I've been writing though not much. I think my writing is less awkward now since I get to read a lot of books and it comes naturally to me to learn how to make things flow and sound neat. I'm better with conversations too (maybe it's just me but it's very encouraging). I said I would finish the soulmate fiction but I kinda lost my muse now so I'm going to move on the other two. I'm full of energy now, what I lack is just time. It's funny that when I have time I just want to sit down and do nothing and when life is hectic I want to write. Someone needs to help me get rid of this habit!!!!
Oh and this is off topic but the post is getting to the end so I have to ask: Air Gear is going somewhere cool. I absolutely don't care about anything of the manga but Ringo's relationship with Ikki. I'm so glad he now realizes how important she is to him just as he means to her life. I think he's likely to end up with Ringo. Kururu is so so. Her character is weak and bleak. I don't know why people like her so much, she just fades into the background to me ><
