Which Teen Titan are you?
You're Raven! Slightly spooky, you seem intimidating at first glance. You have to control your emotions, or else your father will break through, and believe me, no one wants that! You seek solitude, and you may not like to admit it, but your friends mean a lot to you.
Take this quiz!

**2 Fast 2 Students in a Coma**
Two MC students were involved in a road accident a few days ago. They're still in a coma. This is some serious shit.
They were on a motorbike when they crashed with a car. Or a pickup or something. Anyways, the vehicle was much bigger than the one they were on.
And they weren't wearing helmets during the accident.
Makes me think of the times I've ridden a bike at high speeds without a helmet.
This is probably a wake-up call for everyone.

The other day, I squeezed my brain so hard just to come up with something to blog about. I forgot that...
...I've watched X-Men III! Woohoo!!!
The fact that I've watched X-Men III on Sunday should be reason enough to blog about something.
Did this movie get bad reviews?
To hell with those critics (assuming this movie got bad reviews). Whatever they say, I still love this movie. Finally, we get to see *a lot* of action that we should have seen in the previous movies. We get to see Storm unleashing nature's fury like never before. Beast's highly acrobatic feats were a welcome addition to the team. Kitty's use of her intangibility powers on Juggernaut was ingenious. And we finally get to see Iceman's iced up body for the very first time.
And not to mention Jean Grey aka Phoenix. *Bows down* Damn! Too bad she had to be killed. And her fiery red hair was so fitting. I was a little disappointed, though, as I expected to see her in all her flaming glory that the Phoenix is known for.
What struck me was Professor X's lecture on ethics. I thought that was such a coincidence because I happen to be studying ethics too!
Unfortunately, this is the last X-Men movie. I do hope the producers change their minds and make some more movies. After all, *spoiler alert* Professor Xavier didn't
die. Well, his conciousness, at least. And Magneto still had some power left (although, I think he'd be really really old or dead by the time he gets it back completely).
Now I must get the DVD!send comments to email@example.com

I've started listening to The Corrs again, "to all the songs we used to know."
When I first started listening to them, I thought nothing of the lyrics, arrangement, etc.
But now, after my eyes have been opened to songwriting and lyric writing, I've realized that they are... phenomenal.
Their expressive lyrics are intoxicating. The chord progressions they creatively incorporate into the music arrangements are unimaginable. The result: Songs that a listener, like me, could easily get pulled into and entangled in, drowning in their "secret oceans of coral blue and red," forever "so young." It would take years of practice and extraordinary talent to get to that level and to match that depth and intensity of music writing, let alone scratch the surface.
A liberation of creativity.
The only safe place for me, then, would be "only when I sleep."
*Sigh* I love The Corrs...send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org

**Is It Enough?**
It's been exactly a week since my tabby cat found its final resting place in a little mound in the backyard of my house.
I don't feel like I've grieved for it enough.
Last night, I kept thinking about my cat, about all the stupid things that we did together, or rather, all the stupid things I did to it. And then a thought sneaked its way into my mind -- my cat's food bowl. The one it and my other cat ate out of. My stupid siamese cat could never have enough from its own bowl.
It probably lies unused in the store room now, hidden from sight because it is a constant reminder of the fat, lazy, yet lovable, and adorable cat. No one wants to cry again, to be reminded of the cat that was, in its brief time with us, part of the family.
Last night, tears streamed down my face as I lay in bed like they did a week ago when I got the bad new. I certainly don't want to cry anymore.
I still miss my cat.send comments to email@example.com

**Like the Wind**
All hail the unseen force we fear and hate. All acknowledge the presence of the invisible entity we have named Death. For he may claim your very life this instant.
Or in some cases, your pet's life. The one you love so dearly. The one that has become so much a part of your life.
Like me, there are three people I know who have lost their pets to Death. All these losses happened within a short time frame, as if they were... predetermined to die in turns. As I have mentioned to a friend while I was chatting with her, this is the year of Dying Pets.
If you have a pet, keep it close. Satisfy it with heaps food like there's no tomorrow. Snuggle with it under the covers for once. Let it out of the house, on a leash if you must, now and then. Immortalize it with the not-so recent advent of the digital camera.
Hail Death. Your presence is felt, but you are not seen. What is seen is what you have done. You leave anger and grief in your wake. We mortals are powerless against you. There is no holding you back.
I hate you Death. But I respect you.send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org

**My Orange Cat*
Has just died this morning.
My sister SMS-ed me at 7:42am, just around the time I woke up.
I love that cat so much. The fat, lazy orange cat. It is this cat that slept with me every morning. It is this cat that got me so worried when it didn't come home at night. It is this cat that I had trouble with when bathing it. It is this cat that got me through my high school leaving examination.
I knew it going to go. My parents told me it was losing a lot of weight.
I just wish that I could've be back home right now.
Now it lies sleeping in my back yard at home.send comments to email@example.com
