I'll drive all night

She kept waiting for it to happen, and was almost getting tired of waiting. She wanted that, what she sees in others, lucky people who have everything figured out. She stepped out every day wondering or trying to figure out what exactly the universe has lined up for her.

Wondered whether today could be a day where her whole life would change, or whether she was getting closer to what she wanted or whether she was drifting further away. She wondered whether the small little, mundane things she was doing; like staying at home or hitting the cinema or hanging out with friends at that lousy kopitiam would actually make any difference. Or whether she should hit the big moves and make life-changing decisions instead.

So she did that. Made that life-changing decision. And then one day, she stepped out of the door, and life is never quite the same again.
