Superpower Monday

Oh hello!!!!

It’s that day of the week again where I do a weekly feature that can be requested by you guys!!!

Thanks for your suggestions last week, some of they were pretty cool but I don’t feel like blogging about my family right now as some have asked because I’m pissed off with them and today’s topic is actually suggested by my boyfriend!

And it issssssssss………


SUPERPOWER MONDAY!!!!

Ok, I know that Superpower Sunday sounds a lot better and less lame but I was feeling too upset yesterday to blog but I’m going to try and get it done today because I’m responsible like that!

Superpowers -
everybody secretly wishes they had one. Or a hundred.
Or a billion!!!!!

If I had to choose only ONE superpower, I’d choose to be able to make anybody’s wishes come true (including mine) so I will not be limited to only one choice.

With that, I can grant eternal happiness, limitless fortune and great health.

Ok I know that’s not playing fair now, but a girl can dream…

People on my formspring have actually asked me what superpower I’ve always wanted to have as a kid and truth to be told, I didn’t only want superpowers as a kid, I STILL want them now.

Let’s do a fun and random list of all the superpowers I’d kill to have….

FLYING!!!

ROARRRRRR.

Oh come on, EVERYBODY wants to be able to fly!!! People just love that sense of freedom, being able to take flight and go wherever your heart desires. It’s that weightlessness and purity that we all crave…

When I was younger, I used to have a lot of dreams about holding hands with my friends at the top of a hill, and we’d run soooo fast together and at the edge, we’d kick off and fly into the sky.

Lol I’m not kidding you!!!! How cute is that dream? I have SO many weird things going on in my head at night..

Well besides cute dreams of holding hands with kids, I remember this particular dream where this ghost was chasing after me down a super long HDB corridor at night and I couldn’t run at that time, but I was just learning to fly.

And obviously ghosts can fly faster and better than me because they’ve been doing it their whole afterlife, and eventually it started catching up with me and I was like GOD DAMN IT FLY FASTER ALREADY *stretches arms and legs out to increase speed… but nothing happens* and eventually the ghost did catch up but I woke up :(

I always dream of ghosts, or at least in the past. Obvious sign of an extremely disturbed child!!!

I realized that not much of me has changed 10 years later.

Instead of just dreaming about flying, I try to achieve my dreams in different ways… and even though I’m unable to magically levitate into the air, I can still go parasailing and hot air ballooning, which is so damn amazing :)

Every time I’m in the air, I immediately feel happy and detached in a way like I left my body and worries on the ground, this Jessica in the air is much more care free than the one on the ground.

If I really could feel, I would fly to extremely tall landmarks around the world and sit on the top, admiring the view…

I’d sit myself on the very top of the Eiffel tower, and the Golden Gate Bridge, and even go to outer space!!!!! And have chats with aliens. Lol who knows eh?

For somebody who loves flying, I really HATE flying in aeroplanes though... I mean, that’s just stupid and way too high cuz you can’t see shit (only clouds surround you) and the pressure really gets to me whole body, especially my ears.

I feel like someone’s repeatedly stabbing my ears with chopsticks every time I fly… does anyone else get this problem? Apparently the pipes in our noses and ears aren’t working well enough to equalize, *sad*

*thinking about the dreadful flights I will be taking for my Australia trip… first time flying alone*

Besides the obviously popular superpowers that everybody else wants to have (infinite money, being invisible, being immortal, etc) here are a few which I think are quite unique and personal to me!

As you all should know by now, I’m a HUGE fan of the ocean, marine creatures and particularly killer whales and I would absolutely love to be able to speak to orcas or understand them in some way, and of course, be able to breathe underwater just like Harry did in Goblet of Fire!!!

There’s just so many secrets, mysteries and fantasies in the deep blue seas waiting to be explored… I get the chills just thinking about how amazing it is under there.

I know scuba diving sort of lets you breathe underwater but that just doesn’t count lah. I can also say skydiving lets me fly but let’s face it, if your tank runs out of air or if your parachute doesn’t pop up in time, you’re screwed… Superpowers are special for a reason, because it gives us something we can’t have!!!

I wouldn’t even mind eating some gillyweed and grow some very painful looking and ugly gills..

*dreamy sigh*

Watching this video of my incredibly special time at Sea World never fails to get me all emotional and teary-eyed… I miss you Sea World!!!

Swimming with them is one of my biggest dreams in the world (I dream about it at night, and in the day ALL THE TIME), and I’d give anything to be able to do it… but quite frankly, the thought really scares me.

I don’t know, what if they attack me and eat me?

………….Ok this sounds stupid coming from me because I KNOW for a fact that killer whales have NEVER attached humans in the wild unprovoked and they definitely do not eat humans… They’re not opportunistic hunters despite being apex predators of the ocean and they maintain quite a strict diet of whales, porpoises, stingrays and seals (only things that belong in the sea)

Ok I’m not going to give you a whole biography lesson on killer whales, but yes back to my point about being able to breathe underwater… That’d be so awesome!

I’d be a badass marine biologist, haha!!

I guess a contributing factor for wanting this ability to breathe underwater would be that one of my worst fears in life is to actually drown to death. (gee why am I so morbid?)

Ever since I’ve watched movies like Titanic, Deep Blue Sea and other creepy sea-horrors I’ve been scared to death of drowning…

I think it’s so damn horrible how a person has to breathe in so much water (we all know how much that hurts) and their body will keep forcing them to breathe in water until their lungs are completely filled with water instead of oxygen before they finally DIE!!!!

*gasps*

It takes a lot longer than most other deaths and it’s really the most traumatic coz you know EXACTLY what is going on..

If you get hit by a car, you’re like OMG WTF for one second when you see the car speeding towards you but the impact would most probably cause you to lose consciousness or you will be in so much shock that you don’t realize what kind of deep shit you are in…

But drowning is just so helpless!!! Ok I will stop talking about death now.

My last featured superpower of the day would definitely have to be…..

TIME TRAVEL!!!

I could take Sam back millions of years ago and let him see dinosaurs with his very own eyes :)

I love killer whales, but because I know they exist. Being fascinated by an animal you’ve never and will never see is very different..

Well jokes aside, don’t you wish you could just reverse time and undo your mistakes, so you wouldn’t have to carry regrets around in a heavy heart now?

Even though I don’t have many regrets in my life (or at all) I think having time travel becoming possible would benefit us all so much.

Some mistakes were never meant to be made (like the invention of bombs and guns and religion) and they were screwing our world up so much, the effects are irreversible..

If I could travel in time, maybe I could have done something to spare this world from the enormous suffering it’s going through now.

Maybe I could have stopped wars, maybe I could have stopped suicide, maybe I could have stopped idiots from being (lol) well….. you get the idea.

Oooh oh I absolutely love the 50′s to 70′s era!!!!

Everything was just so much more classier back then. Men still bothered to wear ties and suits to dinners, women wore clothing with gorgeous cuts and fabulous designs (not ripped leggings, studs or any of that bullshit)

I prefer old fashion (vintage), and of course OLD MUSIC.


My FAVOURITE band of all-time is The Beatles.

I love the Carpenters and Queen and Eagles and all that other good stuff, but I don’t know, there’s just something amazingly extra special about the Beatles that makes you feel like they’re your best friend, your sole companion and the one who gets you through the shittiest of times.

There is never a day or a mood that a Beatles song cannot make better…

If you’re down in the dumps, Hey Jude will cheer you up. If you’re missing a loved one, Yesterday will keep you company… and of course, talent like that never dies – Paul McCartney’s music still appeals and speaks to my heart.

I first heard this song during “Everybody’s Fine” (one of the most heartbreaking movies I’ve ever watched, and it’s just so real.. you should watch it because it WILL make you cry)

And I got hooked onto it right from the very first verse… I now sing it to myself all the time, especially when I’m upset.

It’s so good to know that despite the greatest talents in this world are pretty much dead (Freddie Mercury, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson) we can still revisit the past and relive some of the most special moments in the history of music while listening to their everlasting music…

Music really completes me :’)

And there you have it people, we’ve come to the end of my Superpower Monday post!!

It’s interesting to note how a supposed post about magical powers ended up linking back to all the actual reasons why I want to possess them.

It was fun to forget about all my troubles for awhile and just think about my hopes anddreams and fears and of course, superpowers.

Who doesn’t love superpowers.

Even if it means nothing to you, it means a lot to me!

I hope you can relate, if not, nevermind – then tell me,

What kind of Superpowers do you want to have for yourself?
Why do you want them and what would you with it?

Maybe if you think about it hard enough, you just might just find out a little more about yourself too.

Let your imagination run wild and it will take you to places you’ve never dreamt of going
