It's All So Complicated!

How would you define love? L-O-V-E.

What's love anyway?

You know, I'm really amazed at the old couples whom I see at the mall, the market, crossing the road, etc. How do they stay together for so long? It's even sweeter if they are holding hands when crossing the road, for example. I smile to myself when I see them. Then, I think if I'll ever have someone's hand to hold when I'm old myself. Truly, it's amazing.

What's their secret? How can they live with each other for so many years? I'm sure there are some fights here and there but they do make up, don't they? However, these days, divorce seems to be the only answer when the husband and wife fight. Why do they fight in the first place? Are they sick of each other? Are they bored of each other already? What's missing in their marriage?

Why am I writing this post? Well, I'm just thinking over about my relationship with my guy. We've been together for more than 2 years. But now I feel something different. I don't feel the love that he's always shown me last time. Are we falling apart or am I just being plain paranoid? I can't sleep thinking about this.

I know I shouldn't waste too much time pondering over this. Studies first, studies first, studies first, I keep telling myself. But, honestly, it's difficult!!!

Anonymous Donor

If you had opened the Yahoo main page today, you may have read this piece of news. Very, very interesting!

Japan police receive 400th secret pledge to poor after 33 years

Who do you think the donor could be? Why has he/she been donating money for 33 years??? The donor must be very rich or maybe the donor just felt that it's the right thing to do to donate money for the needy. It's very mysterious.

However, isn't it better to donate money quietly and not put on a big show? Well, some people like to donate without telling the whole world while some had to share the big news that they are doing something good. Whatever it is, the act of donating had better come right from the heart. No use donating grudgingly. So not cool.

When was the last time that you had donated anything for anything? Was it the 20 cents coin you dropped in a tin on Flag Day? I know that some of you may be wary that your money might not reach the needy but instead end up in some undeserving person's pocket. Truth is, we'll never know.
