This is a test post from my phone… Let’s see how that goes!

『Open Window!』 turned 2 today!

Guess who’s turned two this year, my dear reader?
This dusty, old open window, which was closed now and then. Does any light still get inside?

I know I’m just no one. I know it can’t be possible.

There’s no hope for me, no matter what.

Since you have nothing to do with me.

No matter how hard I’ve tried, you’d never love me.

And soon, all my hopes will be faded away.


But now I still have some time for finding some good reasons

to hold you back to me. But deep down I know it’s hopeless.


Even if I love you this much,

but it’s just meaningless to you.

I’d just been hoping too much that someday you’d love me too.

Despite the fact that it’s impossible, and I’m not the one, it’s still okay.

Let me just keep you in my heart till the time ends.


Even everything that I’ve got can never make you happy.

And worse it would annoy you.

But please hear me out just one time.

This one last song that I’m willing to give it to you.

It came from the bottom of my heart, and it’s only for you.


Don’t know how long will it take for me to erase you from my mind.

Don’t know when will I be able to love again.


Since I’m not the one for you.

It’s okay, as long as I’m still breathing.

I will love you forever.

I found a website that describes a person’s characteristics based on their zodiac sign. It was the most accurate site I’ve seen with those. So accurate it’s almost creepy. So I’ll be posting what it says here, as a way of saying a little bit about myself.

Do you often feel restive under the deep, penetrating eyes of your friend while you talk to him? Do you feel that behind those intent looks, you are being probed for the deepest secrets and the finest nuances of your character? If yes, then just check if your friend was born anytime between January 21 and February 19. There is a very strong possibility that you have met a typical Aquarian. What you are witnessing is the quintessential Aquarian curiosity which has got nothing to do with digging up your past. All that is there in front of you is the innocent urge to know everything around him that is an indispensable part of Aquarian personality.

Aquarian Traits

Sharp Intellect
In astrology, Aquarius is often referred to as the sign of genius. Boredom is the biggest malady of people born under this sun sign. An Aquarian has a very fertile mind that needs to be constantly fed with new knowledge, be it about people or machines. A large number of Aquarians are seen to prosper in the field of technology. They are good in computers and machines, and are often found to have an eclectic collection of gadgets. Artistic inclination is one of the predominant Aquarius sign characteristics. They specially excel in drama. In fact, 70% of individuals in the Hall of Fame either belong to this sun sign or have a strong Aquarian ascendant.

It is again his hunger for knowledge that makes an Aquarian interact with people. He might be keenly interested in you. But as soon as he has quenched his curiosity he might move on. He is like the winter gale that is hard to be fettered. He has to move on as there are greater mysteries for him to unravel. The Aquarian need for constant interaction with people is often viewed as a lack of commitment, and you may be surprised at how many acquaintances and how very few real friends an Aquarian has. However, once he has scanned you under his intent analysis, and you have captured his interest, your Aquarian friend could startle you with his loyalty.

A Rebel and Reformist
Almost every Aquarian comes by as a soft-spoken, courteous individual. However, don’t be fooled by this tranquil exterior. Aquarians are essentially rebels and non-conformists. For an Aquarian there is always a scope for change. He is a born thinker who can visualize the future with amazing clarity. In the world of astrology this is common refrain - ‘Aquarians see today what the world sees 50 years later’. The universal water bearer that represents this sun sign, comes a person for the masses. He stands for revolution for the greater benefit of mankind. From his jug, the water bearer pours out water, like ideas that come out of an unrestrained mind that can see tomorrow and beyond, while the rest of us are still struggling with the travails of today. Aquarians are idealists, however, without blind faith. They are people with original ideas and strong convictions. One of the negative Aquarius characteristics is their stubbornness. Though they might not jump into the revolutionary war with a sword as a Scorpio or Leo would, an Aquarian would ensure that despite bitter opposition his convictions are realized. This is best reflected by Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt who brought about the reforms they believed in despite lack of support.

Humanitarian Leanings
It is their ability and need to interact with people that helps them develop a keen understanding of the plight of the ostracized and the elite alike. This gives individuals of this air sign strong humanitarian leanings. As they go about mingling with the masses with enviable ease, and soaking up all information that comes by with their keen senses, their desire to improve the plight of the downtrodden becomes stronger. Often seen as tactless and rebellious, it is here that their love for freedom comes in great use. In their quest to question authority and set norms, we see the Aquarians unparalleled zeal and courage to stand against injustice and fight the cause of the underdog.

Love for Debate
The Aquarian love for debate is legendary. Despite the stubborn streak, an Aquarian is more open to listening and thinking than any other sun sign. Exchange of ideas is the much required mental workout that an Aquarian desperately needs. Be it an Aquarian male or a female, it is the intellect more than exterior appearance or physical fitness that excites this individual that belongs to the element air. It is no wonder then that although an Aquarian would pounce on any chance for discussion and arguments, he would promptly shy away when called for physical activity. It is this dislike for physical activity that often makes these air signs prone to health problems. There are more susceptible to circulatory diseases and tend to develop problems related to legs, shins and ankles. They need to sleep, rest and exercise for good health. However, they compromise on all these to find succor to feed their active mind.

Unpredictable Nature
Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus which symbolizes unpredictability. Just as you might think that it is the crowd in which your Aquarian friend finds solace, you might see him go into morose spells of loneliness, during which he meditates and contemplates over the newly acquired knowledge. Meditation is one of the typical characteristics of Aquarians. It helps him retain his sharp sense of perception. Although he might be deeply engrossed in some argument, he would surprisingly still be aware of all that is happening behind his back. And just when you thought he was not listening to you, he would startle you by repeating what you said word for word. Despite their contradictory nature, their friendly, empathetic and progressive nature provides stability to those around them

In case you are charmed by the magnetic personality of an Aquarian, and at the same time his eccentric and unpredictable behavior baffles you, don’t fret. He is just as normal as he should be. It’s just that you are living your life on the beats of a different drummer.

Aquarius Personality

Being an Aquarian, praising Aquarians will be like blowing your own trumpet! But Aquarians have so many qualities that it is impossible to not praise them! Aquarius is the eleventh zodiac sign, ruled by Saturn and Uranus. Water bearer is the symbol of Aquarius, who is shown pouring water through a jug. Actually, it is not water which is being poured, it is knowledge that the water bearer wishes to spread among people. It is also said that, Aquarians intend to use the water of knowledge to purge the negativity and evil thoughts of others. They are always ready to impart the wisdom and advice to anybody who needs it, and that is why, they are rightly called, the givers!

Aquarius is a fixed air sign and so, they are said to be natural thinkers and an envoy. One of the disadvantage of being a ‘fixed’ air sign is that, Aquarians can be stubborn. They hate to be forced for anything, even their own good! If you try to force them directly, they might refuse bluntly on your face. So you need to be patient and convince the Aquarian that the changes are utmost necessary.

Male Aquarius Personality
Aquarius males are eccentric and compassionate. They are deep thinkers and so you will always find them deep in thought! They have a lot of friends, but very few are really close to them. In fact, their friendly nature and ‘giver’ personality makes them everyone’s favorite. One of the major characteristics is that they love freedom; worship freedom, will be more apt! So, if you are in a relationship with an Aquarian man, give him complete freedom of expression. This love of freedom is not restricted to just expression. Overall also, they need to be given freedom. So, if you want to have a long term relationship with an Aquarius man, you shouldn’t constantly cling to him. He may seem a bit detached, as they give more importance to head than heart. But that doesn’t mean that they do not care, they are very caring and loving but only cannot express it always. So, you need to be always patient with an Aquarius male. And it is worth as they are very loyal and will be there with you in all your ups and downs.

As said earlier, Aquarian males are givers, they will give their thoughts, advice and affection to the needy. But they hate to be taken undue advantage of. If anyone tries to use them, they get bitter and can do things which no one can ever expect them to do!
