So far away from where you are
These miles have torn us worlds apart
And I miss you
Yeah, I miss you
So far away from where you are
Standing underneath the stars
And I wish you were here
I know you’re here, watching for us. I just don’t see you. I wish you’re here, Grandpa. We really miss you.
Yesterday was my Grandfather’s Death Anniversary and the song I’m listening to just fits my mood. We went to the cemetary, bought him flowers and candles and prayed for him. We stayed at our old house where I grew up, which is my grandmother and grandfather’s house and we ate with our relatives. Staying there was nostalgic, and brought me my childhood memories back. My grandfather used to piggyback me and I can still remember the time when we almost fell on the stairs because I was a hyper granddaughter. My grandfather always rambled how crazy I was about Harry Potter because I kept watching it over and over again that I would have memorized each line. Even though he’s like that, he watched those movies with me. XD
What makes me wanna cry when I remember him is the fact that I wasn’t able to visit him on the hospital during his last days. If I would have skipped school and didn’t take the exams, I would have been there on time. Just when I was about to take my cousin with me to go to the hospital, my other grandma calmly informed me about what happened. It was really hard not to cry, but I found it embarrassing to cry in front of someone so I held my tears so bad I thought my throat was going to explode. I still feel sad when I remember that incident, even until now. But I’m sure my grandfather understood me. And he forgave me for being damn late.
Anyway, we just had an exam in our Computer Organization class and I failed miserably. x( I’m really stupid not to study, and yeah it was my fault so I have no one to blame but myself. There’s still Midterms, Pre-Finals and Finals so I have to make sure I could catch up! >_< I just joined Tiff K's Designer Panda Contest!

On a side note, I freaked out when electricity was cut off while I was making this post. Hooray WordPress for automatically saving posts as drafts! YAY! :haha
