And I find it kinda funny

I find it kinda sad

The dreams in which I'm dying

Are the best I've ever had

So the Heroes fever has hit Singapore, and it hit Singapore HARD. It's on cable every Wednesday night at 10pm on either AXN or Star World and I have been embarrassingly hooked.

One of my favorite characters of the show would be Hiro Nakamura, played brilliantly by Masi Oka, otherwise known as Masayori Oka. Fluent in Japanese, fluent in English, and also fluent enough in digital art to be in George Lucas' Industrial Light & Magic studio as a digital artist. Not to mention irresistably cute.

I'm honestly impressed.

To all E2 supporters, let me tell you something.

The Dance Floor is a serious competition, much like American Idol, or even Survivor. I just want you to realize that your two friends, compared to the rest of the competitors, can't cut it.

I felt a little nauseated when they didn't get into the bottom three. I thought they were good at first to be perfectly honest, but after watching the Disco round let alone the Rock n' Roll round, I found their moves to be repetitive and boring. No matter the genre, everything looks the same.

So to all of E2's friends, this competition is not about supporting your friends, it's about finding the best dancer(s) and E2 is not it. I know many of you can afford to send tens or who knows, even hundreds of those text messages to vote for them, but honestly, I don't think they deserve it.

Don't pull a "Joakim Gomez", and do the right thing instead.

I got bored, and I painted a picture of Rixie, Julie's World of Warcraft character, a gnome mage.

Like it? :)

Could use constructive comments.

I'm extremely disappointed, and tired.

After so much waiting and anticipation, I have prepared myself to commit to one man in marriage for the rest of my adult life. I have asked myself this question time and time and time again, and I am now absolutely sure that I want to marry Karl and spend the rest of my life with him.

But it would seem that the USCIS will not allow it, in regards to my country being under the Free-Trade, Visa Waiver Program. I am allowed to travel to the United States of America without having to apply for a Visa. However, I found out that it does not allow marriage to a citizen of the US. So because of that, I will not be able to marry Karl unless I apply for a K-1 Fiancé Visa, something that we have thought about since last June, but never got around to doing, with all sorts of excuses, like no time, no money, etc.

It makes me so disappointed in myself.

Taking the advice of a friend whose parents deals with immigration from Mexico on a regular basis, I became overly complacent, something I should not have been. I was convinced that under the Visa Waiver Program, I could enter the country and marry Karl. Ever since Karl told me about his visit to the USCIS office last Friday, I have become increasingly tense and depressed. I had believed my friend, and I feel betrayed by him in a way. I don't blame him, I blame myself, honestly.

I emailed the US Embassy here, and this was their response.

Is a Singapore Citizen allowed to marry a US Citizen in the US if the Singapore Citizen is on the Visa Waiver Program, and have the I-130 filed there?

If the I-130 can be filed, is the Singaporean Citizen eligible for an extension of stay during the visa processing?
NO – the visa waiver program is NOT intended for this type of travel. VWP travelers may NOT extend their stay or change their status. A fiancée visa is the appropriate visa. An I-129F petition must first be filed with the USCIS.

So there you have it.

Like I said, we have thought about doing this so long ago. We had all the time in the world, from June until now, but no. We procrastinated and neglected the legalities in regards to our being together, and now this. I even had a lawyer's namecard. We had all the opportunity, but no initiative. I should have pressed him to call that lawyer then, but I didn't. Instead, I knew that we had no money and he was working overtime most of the time, and soon after, we forgot about it almost altogether.

So I only have myself to blame.

I have disappointed him, myself, my family, and everyone involved.

I'm sorry for letting everyone down.

THIS really made my day.

And believe me, my day was extremely shitty.

So the planning has begun.

The first one we have to plan is the one we're going to hold here. A simple dinner with close friends, family and colleagues. But even with friends and family... the guest list has reached fifty-one. Not counting Mom, Dad, Kai, Karl (he's coming back!) and myself, that would be forty-six. Most of them are, of course, my mother's side of the family. The rest are my paternal family, some colleagues and friends.

At least I have the invitation card designed. Karl likes it, but I don't know about Katie. Mom seems to like it. Kai is amused by it. I now need to know what to put into the cards so I can get the first one printed out. I also need to get the layout for both the back and front of the card.

Color scheme?

Wine red.

Finally got him to agree on something... he didn't like some of the choices I had thrown at him, but we both decided against pastel colors (ew) so we're going with something deeper.

There's still a lot to be done, so this is a start.

How can a person fit 23 years of her life into boxes?

I don't know, but I gotta do it. I glance through my old CD's, old games, magazines, yearbooks, and I see how I've progressed since I was a kid. I even have my old primary school stuff under my desk.

How can a person decide to throw part of her history away?

But it seems like I've been doing so. Old schoolbooks and sketchbooks that depict my growth as a student and an artist. Notes that are passed to and from classmates, choral scores, how can I decide what I want to bring with me? All of it mean something to me in one way or another.

It hurts, honestly. I feel like I should throw away my past and move on to greater things, start life anew with Karl in the States, but I also feel like I shouldn't leave it all behind me. "Remember your roots," my mom always says to me.

Now I have to make a list of what Karl and I would need for the wedding. We've never done weddings before (obviously) and honestly, I do not know what is involved. Rentals? Huh? No idea. Could use some help, yes. But it's a little scary to ask a wedding planner because there's always huge amounts of money involved, and we cannot afford it.

There's always our parents.

But that involves a 15hour timezone difference, and co-ordinating something like that would be tremendously difficult, due to work schedules and such.

I'll figure something out.

I wonder if they're still together? It'd be their first anniversary, no?

Read this.

This looks like the actual article.

To whoever you are, wherever you are, I love you. I probably don't know you yet, but when I do, I'll know, and so will you. And you'll love me for who I am, as will I.

You might be living in my neighbourhood, or some other town or country far away. I don't know. And neither do you, at this point.

Wherever you are, I know I'll find you... if you don't find me first.

It's just a matter of time.
