It Begins Again

Tomorrow is the start of winter semester at OCAD…


This gif pretty much shows how my day is going to go tomorrow… (granted I can actually jump pretty high thank you very much!)

All my courses should be okay except for this English course I have to take. I am not looking forward to the classes ahead mainly because of what I read from the syllabus.

Basically, I have to write a research paper about education. Now, probably a scholarly english expert would chuckle at the thought of writing a paper like this, but for me it’s no laughing matter.

But, we shall see how it goes!

Wish me luck!

Black Hole of Rain – Poem

This is a poem I wrote for my English class:


Black Hole of Rain



It has been raining mostly,

Clouds hover darkly,                         winds rustle the trees

In constant streams. Distant lights from the street

Flicker and vanish.

Standing by the door, chills creep through its crack

Tickling my spine.

A rumble escalates as it passes overhead,

Pans and is gone,                         then pans again

Till I’m left with patters of raindrops

like ticks of multiple clocks.


Here I pray that none whom I once loved

Is dying or lying still awake as I,

Solitary, listening to this rain.

How can I find you

When lightning threatens a safe return,

When waterfalls drench life bare?

This world seems more beautiful,

More luscious, more loveable,

When sun lights, clears this pain

Of uncertainty.

As I wait here, hoping you return again,

I stare into a black hole of rain.
