key

I’ve always been fascinated by locks and keys. Maybe because of their cliche symbolism of mystery and discovery and truth and even trust. This is one of those words which you could write so much for that it’s overwhelming and you end up writing nothing.

statement

Oh god I could just stare at this word all day and have nothing to say about it. Well, no I have too much to say about it and I can’t say anything. Currently interning at a law firm, and “state” and its derivatives are pretty popular.

stretcher

My friend told me that as a kid, she wrote a story about a rabbit and spent pages describing how to make a stretcher. I told her it was a sign that she should become a paramedic.

sonar

It would be incredibly helpful to have sonar. Like bats and whales and that blind Alpha. From that perspective, you can sense things all around you – much more useful than eyes – but the world isn’t as pretty, colour-wise.

doorknob

Doorknobs are actually very dirty, with everyone touching them. Who knows where those hands have been before, what kind of germs are on them? I think this was brought to my attention during the SARS epidemic a couple years ago.

adviser

How useful are advisers, really? I mean, everyone wants one, right? They’re supposed to make your life a whole lot easier, through various means. But how useful is advice when the other person doesn’t know everything, because, let’s face it, no other person could be as aware of your situation as you are.

overalls

I sort of like overalls. I probably could never wear them. I’d look stupid. But they’re sort of nice, I think. Why are they associated with farmers?

detention

I’ve been given detention once before, but I’m not sure that it counts. My friends and I were caught in the classroom during lunchtime and after school were made to help wash PE balls. It makes me seem like a “bad” student – not there’s anything wrong with that – but it just seems wrong, disappointing somehow, when you find out that my punishable offense was going to the classroom during lunchtime to pick up something I’d forgotten.

modem

I’m actually not quite sure what a modem is. Shows how much I know about computers, huh. I should probably learn.

motion

The object is in motion. It will not stop unless a force is applied to it. There is nothing around to apply such a force. Will it go on moving forever, spinning through otherwise empty space, waiting for something to come along and cause it to stop?

saturday

Today is Saturday. Actually, yesterday was Saturday. But since it’s past midnight and I haven’t yet gone to sleep I consider today yesterday. It’s kind of silly, huh? Also, Saturday should be capitalised.

crust

The crust is the best bit of the pie. Always. No matter what people say. It’s what balances the whole thing out and makes it tasty.

distributor

Black market distributors profit the most, while the common people are forced to pay thirty times the legal price in attempts to keep their family fed.

soups

Soup is both a food and a drink. It’s what you make people when they’re sick, so I guess it’s for warmth and a sign of affection and care and whatnot.

seeds

Seeds are the beginnings of life. They hold the power and the energy to become a living thing, and that’s rather amazing isn’t it? I guess that’s why eating them is so healthy, because they contain all the nutrients and everything.

fractures

Bone fractures hurt like hell. She of all people should know. As she limped down the corridor, she cursed Anna yet again for causing her to trip on the stairs. The person in question was standing sheepishly at the top of the stairs, peering down and wondering when her friend would come in sight.

persons

People. All my stories are about people, nowadays. I used to write about animals. I sometimes wish I could go back to that stage. However, now I find humans far too interesting. Even though I can’t portray anything close to the full range of emotions and experiences that people go through, I can’t seem to stop trying.

pits

She’s at the bottom of the pit of despair, and she can’t get out no matter how hard she tries. She can see the sky far above her head, but even as she reaches out she knows it’s useless. She’s completely and utterly stuck.

keen

Keen. Passionate. What are you keen about? It seems so intense, yet moderate at the same time. What do you like? What do you love? No, just keen. What are you keen about?

framework

Think about it. What is the framework upon which we build our lives? Our family, friends, colleagues, classmates? These are all people. What about the physical aspects, the environment in which we grew up? The country, culture, weather?

mayor

The mayor of the town looked around at the people gathered in the square. Mentally, he reminded himself that these people looked up to him, trusted him to do the right thing. Drawing in a deep breath, he opened his mouth and began to speak.

quest

I’ve always wanted to write a story about a quest. It seems like a fascinating thing to do. I’m afraid it would get too boring though, as a lot of my writing ends up pretty boring and an adventure story just can’t do that. Maybe I could turn my 2011 NaNoWriMo novel into one.

mint

Mint. Minty. Toothpaste. Mojitos. Mint chocolate-chip ice-cream.
I don’t really like mint.
The only mints I’ll eat is the one where the fruit (or other) flavour is so strong it’s more like candy than mint.

wander

Not all who wander are lost.
Haha. Love that quote. So true.
And now I have nothing else to say.
Wanderer. Wandering. Wandered. Wanders.
It’s starting to not look like a word any more. -.-

cards

Birthday cards. Valentine’s cards. Christmas cards. New Year’s cards. Usually for happy occasions. Home-made ones are the best. And they’re not terribly difficult to make, either, if only you’d bother to put in a little effort.

jelly

Jelly. It’s cool. It’s colourful. All red and green and blue and yellow. But not at the same time, hopefully. Unless it’s agar-agar. Speaking of which, I haven’t eaten in a long time. And wobbly. Jelly. Fruits. Like the one we got from Japan. Tasty. Wonder if they still stock it? I always loved the jelly more than the fruits. Haha.

rocket

Let’s take a rocket to the moon.
I’ve always wanted to fly on a rocket.
Kind of.
I mean, I’ve always loved learning about space and astronomy and stuff like that.
So much I even took astronomy as an activity in 9th grade.
Hah. Biggest waste of time ever.
But I was always especially interested in what the astronauts ate out there in space.

endless

Time is endless. At least, insofar as we know, it is endless. Of course, it may end one day, but by then humans will have long gone from this planet. Hell, the planet itself may have ceased to exist.

drain

The drain was deep. It was usually covered, but sometimes teenage boys liked to remove the cover and then kick some branches and leaves over it so that unsuspecting passers-by would step in and then fall. It was a nasty trick, but they did it all the same.

edition

This is the first edition of the most famous book in history. This is a limited edition T-shirt, available only to the lucky few who win the draw. This new and improved edition is actually not new and improved at all.
