Your presents will never arrive. (BONUS: Music Recommendation — December 26, 2011)


(Autopost) Blog typed on December 23, 2011.

Oh, it’s part 3 of the Christmas specials! And well, after this, Christmas has officially come to an end. 😦 but then, well, new year is just right around the corner!! This will also be my last post of the year 2011, and it will also mark the end of my PostAWeek2011. If there is a PostAWeek2012, I will definitely join, but will start in May at the earliest.

Maybe I’ll be back breifly in February… or maybe not. (Maybe just 1 post. LOL)

Since my birthday’s coming up (in around 1-2 months, I’ll be 18!!), it’s about time for me to think about which CD to buy for myself. Since my birthday in 2010, I’ve been giving myself one CD as a birthday present. In 2010, I gave myself Ke$ha’s “Animal”, and in 2011, (I’m not sure, but I’m quite positive it’s this one) a Hong Kong newcomer, Erika’s self-titled debut album.

So what am I going to buy this year? I have actually shortlisted a list: (Not in any order)
Owl City – All Things Bright and Beautiful (2011)
Evanescence – Evanescence (2011)
Bjork – Biophilia (2011)
Christina Perri – lovestrong. (2011)
Ke$ha – Cannibal (EP) (2010)

Help guys? Did you buy that CD? What do you think? Or simply which CD do you think I should buy this year?

Maybe you would ask why do I do this, and why don’t I buy a CD that was released by a singer I like. This is because I would love to discover something new, and buy CDs that I won’t buy normally. And for the past 2 years, I’m satisfied with what I bought.

 

Music time!

Since it’s Boxing day, I’ve chosen a new and fun song for you to hear. It’s by Waa Wei (魏如萱), a Taiwanese singer. The song is quite catchy, and I really like the beat. The music video’s quite fun too. The song’s called “Three Words”.

Enjoy!

魏如萱 - 三個字

 

and now, a little flash fiction.

The presents will never arrive.

This Christmas, it felt different.

It felt like there’s a hole inside of me, waiting to be filled.

I stood in front of the naked Christmas tree. Without the ornaments, without the lights, it looked like just a normal tree. Without the presents underneath, that’s even worse.

It’s not like I don’t have time to go buy anything, I just didn’t think I need to this year, since no one is going to give me any gifts.

Last year was so much better, I missed the good old times, when the three of us would spend a night around the Christmas tree decorating it. Since then so much things had happened. It felt like a strong bright light. It numbed me, my feelings.

It felt like a whirl, and I’m standing here right now, once again, but the atmosphere will never be the same.

 

There isn’t any writer’s block this time, but this, very short fiction (well it’s not called flash fiction for nothing), DID express what I wanted the story to express. These few times when I wrote, they all had a quite similar atmosphere or feeling, because that’s what reflected my feelings at the moment. The story may not be the same, but the feeling deep down was the same. I am sad. As simple as that. but I’m okay, thanks for asking. (That is, if you are asking at all. That is, if you are reading this at all. LOL)

Well, see you next year on January 17/18 for the most-anticipated post of the year! (I’ve confirmed that I won’t be able to finish the post since there’s CDs released a few days ago.) and maybe see you in February, and well, I’LL DEFINITELY SEE YOU GUYS AGAIN IN MAY 2012!!!! LOOK FORWARD TO IT!! (and I’ll finally be able to return to the world where books, music, and Tumblr exists.) SEE YUH GUYS!
