Birds of a Feather Flock Together

Initially when I started SG Watch, I tasked upon myself to update it with fresh content at least once every three days. It soon became once every week, then once every month. I then gave up making goals for myself to update the site when real life made increasing — and undeniably more important — demands of my limited time on Earth.

Not that I have nothing to say. Friends know that I have an opinion on almost every issue. Joe made an interesting observation that I like to be the devil’s advocate just to provoke reactions from others and have a good debate. I suppose my ability to see both sides of the argument allow me to always provide a contrarian perspective. Michel de Montaigne describes my stand nicely:

There is no conversation more boring than the one where everybody agrees.

The phrase birds of a feather flock together comes to mind when I realise many of my friends don’t update their blogs often either. Instead of being a new form of communications, blogs have in fact become our virtual time capsules.

Revisiting my first foray into the wonderful world of internet, Fanaticism, always makes me feel nostalgic. I am no longer the undergrad sent to exile faraway from home, struggling to make the grade for my statistics class and planning my next big trip. But yet, I was once that person, and would not have been half the man I am today if I didn’t go through the trials and tribulations of my earlier life.

Great men build gigantic phallic monuments to commemorate their grand achievements. Common folks like us keep blogs to record our small victories in life.
