"My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations."
- John Green (The Fault in Our Stars, 2012)
To whom I haven't met yet,
Once a week, I do volunteer work at a center for young kids with learning disabilities. I put my teaching skills to good use & teach them the basic survival skills in the working world.
Being lively at this center is not a life without problems. There are negative moments known as emotional swings by the disabled kids. The negative moments is endless. But complain is not something I planned to do the moment I signed up to teach here. There is so much to live for & so many beautiful memories that we will create together as time goes by.
Dear hummingbird, these moments have certainly made an impression. You know that feeling when you learn something new in your life & you feel as if you are still a part of the students? That is when I know my life has made an impact on me. That is when something leaves a mark that may be forgotten but can never be erased.
People asked, why I decided to teach at night when I can actually live a decent life with my morning job? I think the job as a teacher have the power to change my perception of things.
Within the next few days, yours truly will lights up the life of beggars around Penang , the orphans at the orphanage & the old folks at the retirement home with tonnes of pizza.
Yes, that time of the year when I will celebrate my birthday in beautiful ways. I feel so happy putting smiles on their face. Looking at this beautiful people, I will transform myself into a grenade of happiness, waiting to explode.
Until then, have yourself a wonderful life too, forever & always.
And I want you to realize that I will love you more than you will ever be to see.
For the other half of the sky,
The Half Moon Serenades.
