Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

Had a terrible day today! Geez! One of the worst days ever since coming up here.
Firstly, school was alright, for the Malaysian studies thing, we were divided into our groups and arranged the plans and all, and that was still fine. Later on, most of the guys went to the library to do their assignments, but I realized Yen disappeared. Later on he came back and told us the school transferred him to another class, starting immediately in 2 hours, not the next day! What the hell? Seriously, it's like every single time I'm in a new school environment, a person I'm just getting to know best in the class goes off. In Ogden, Kevin left. In Orde, Benjamin left. In Marsiling, Ju Li left. In ITE, Jeffrey left. Now in The One Academy, Yen leaves. I mean okay, life isn't going to end when one friend leaves your class or school, but its still quite upsetting. And it's a freaking routine for me. I mean its a new school environment and people will undoubtedly have a person they stick to better in class or something. And every single damn time, MY better friend has to leave. Geez. Turns out that the school placed him in the wrong class, and that he won't be taking a diploma first, just a certificate, because of some issue with credits and passing his SPM (Malaysian equivalent of O levels). No details here.
After that, we had communication skills. Quite alright, but during class there was a HUGE thunderstorm, and the winds were blowing so hard, they sounded like ghostly screams. No kidding! If you heard the sounds the wind made, you'd be creeped out bad. It wasn't those whipping sounds, but like a whisper in agony, super cool!
After that I wanted to go home, sleep and do my assignments, but my mom wanted to go to one workshop in the heart of the main city. So she told me to drive her there, with her guiding, and I'd spend some time just hanging around. Craps seriously -.-, I can't get rest, can't finish my assignments. Zzz. So fine, she guided me, and lucky me, it was dead on on the middle of rush hour. SUPER JAM! I was like what the! At times the jam was so bad I didn't move at all for like 10 minutes. It was so slow I could SMS and put the gear to "P" quite often while waiting. Geez. Eventually we made it to MCA's building, and my mom went for the talk, while I walked around. After she finished, I drove back home, and nearly got into two accidents -.-. First, on a highway, naturally you'll go faster. So while driving fast, some moron from the left-turning lane just came out of the road and turned right, straight in front of me! I slammed the breaks, and kept pressing the horn (I've never pressed the horn before) at the idiot. Geez! If I didn't slam the breaks we'd all be seriously injured. And to make matters worse, the guy didn't just turn right, he was super slow too! According to my speedometer (I was right behind him after all) he was going like 10km/h. GET OFF! Later on, to make my day even worse, I was driving ahead to turn left, and again, another moron wanted to cut in without warning. This time it was WAY too close for comfort. I wasn't speeding as fast as on the highway, but this particular retard decided to cut in when there was no car behind me. He could just wait for me and cut left however he wanted. But noooo, he had to just cut straight in front of me, nearly causing another accident. Freak. My day was already spoiled since the afternoon, so I pressed the horn like mad again. Got damn ticked off. He tried to squeeze in even though I was clearly driving quite fast and it was a damn green light! No one was behind him! He coulda just reversed and turned if he wanted to. ARGH.
By the time I got home, I missed all but 10 minutes of Desperate Housewives. Just as if the day couldn't get any worse, there's added insult to injury.
The day sucked like hell. Aye... but I did have some solace though. While my mom was attending the workshop, I walked to the Petronas Twin Towers. There was a fire or something in a nearby building, which had smoke billowing out and surrounding the towers. Made it look super misty and extremely beautiful. It was also raining, and I just took my time walking there.
It's been ages since I could just walk in the rain without a care. Sometimes, time stands still. Slows down. You see things you don't usually notice.
The lights from the towers are magnificent. The smoke just made it all the more better.
Have you ever just looked up in awe from the very bottom? Seeing the height the tower stretches.
Just look up into the sky, up into the dark heavens, and see the raindrops falling down. The beauty of seeing so many crystal drops just falling down. They seem to slow down when you just look up.
Have you ever just taken the time to relax? To just see the beauty of everything around you?
Like the raindrops that seem to slow and shine when you just take the time to stop and look, so are our lives.
Just stop, look up at your life, and see how everything moves so slowly, how you notice some things when they are illuminated, just before they hit the ground, the revelation gone.
The grace and chaos of the rain, the way it falls.
