Call me freedom!

Good morning!

internet troubles, i am facing again and again =( It took me around 3 hours to properly connect today, whatttt~~~

I just finished my treasure hunt of medical records, i have been going for weeks to the hospital to get consent to see the hundreds of medical records that i have to go through for my thesis. At last, yesterday, that hunt came to an end after endless bribery, painstaking running up and downs and countless hours being dizzy about it all. So, this weekend, pray that i can finally finish rounding up the data and do my chapter 4 and 5. By the way, for my juniors, when you are in your 4th year, please dont even think about taking medical records, like seriously! There is so much bureaucracy that you have to go through, that experiments seem as easy as peas.

I know everyone is facing tough times nowadays, some of us may not have enough money at the moment, some may be worrying about their thesis, some of us just have issues and problems that is hard to face. I know i do. Sometimes you feel helpless as thoughts fly around in your mind when you are alone but can disappear for awhile when you are among people who care and love for you. So surround you with them, and think happy thoughts. If you cant, atleast try to. Same advice goes to me =) Dont just stay cooped up in your room, maybe take a stroll where the air is fresh. For Jatinangorians, i recommend the university as a place to walk in the late afternoons where you can have a moment to gain some peace of mind. I jog in the afternoons to feel calm. Sometimes I can feel the breeze wisps by me with His Zikr, and His embrace as I thread down the open paths, because the more steps we take towards Him, the closer He comes to us right~

Lets de-stree, de-tox oursleves and be free..Take a moment to breathe, and stop right there, because we need to calm ourselves in times where we are most frantic. Free ourselves from the burden of the worlds, because every burden makes us stronger to face the world. No matter how bad everything seems now, Thank God we still have our eyes to see, Thank God we still have a brain to think and Thank God we still have a heart and soul to live~

Anyway, today is all about celebrating and rejoicing life, it is a friday after all. The most holy day of the week. So, why feel down in the dumps when we can wake up and open our eyes, smile and love ourselves more than ever! This morning, my playlist is stuck to this song which I would like to share with everyone today, if you are down and dont have the feeling to go through the day or even this morning, then listen to this.

Do you watch football, because if you do, then you would most probably know that this song has been chosen for the FIFA 2010 anthem! yeayy!

When i get older, they'll call me freedom
Just like a Waving Flag.

When I get older, I will be stronger,
They'll call me freedom, just like a Waving Flag,
And then it goes back, and then it goes back,
And then it goes back

Born to a throne, stronger than Rome
but Violent prone, poor people zone,
But it's my home, all I have known,
Where I got grown, streets we would roam.
But out of the darkness, I came the farthest,
Among the hardest survival.
Learn from these streets, it can be bleak,
Except no defeat, surrender retreat,

So we struggling, fighting to eat and
We wondering when we'll be free,
So we patiently wait, for that fateful day,
It's not far away, so for now we say


So many wars, settling scores,
Bringing us promises, leaving us poor,
I heard them say, love is the way,
Love is the answer, that's what they say,
But look how they treat us, Make us believers,
We fight their battles, then they deceive us,
Try to control us, they couldn't hold us,
Cause we just move forward like Buffalo Soldiers.

But we struggling, fighting to eat,
And we wondering, when we'll be free
So we patiently wait, for that faithful day,
It's not far away, but for now we say,

[Chorus] 2x

(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And everybody will be singing it
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And you and I will be singing it
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And we all will be singing it
(Ohhh Ohh Ohh Ohh)

[Chorus] 2x

When I get older, when I get older
I will be stronger, just like a Waving Flag,
Just like a Waving Flag, just like a Waving flag
Flag, flag, Just like a Waving Flag
