I used to whine a great deal on little things that would put me off, for things I didn't have and for things I didn't want to have. The problem was I wanted everything that I didn't have, well, almost everything. It would bug me that I did not have a black nail polish when it was in bloom. Little things like DVDs from big things like iPods. I had to have them all <-- just like Ash in Pokemon. Gonna catch them all (it sounds like 'am gonna catch all those diseases') God, it was stressful. Trying to clinch the deal with my parents, being a goody-goody daughter and once I got it I was my oldself again. No, I was not a snob (how can you think so!), just very avaricious. I really do like to collect things, doesn't matter if they are useless to me. From past few months, I have been trying to change. Oh, I still drool for new dresses and jewelry and gadgets, but I don't go on whining about it all day. Working on it =) <-- I realized there is more to life than having an iPod and a mascara.
I took one of my best friends for granted. Guess we both did. Anyway, little things went unappreciated and grudges were held, in the end the friendship was ruined (where have the good old days gone, when all you had to do to make up was to shake hands and Voila! You are best of friends again). No more dwelling on the past, but losing that friend have changed the whole lot of me. When you are a grown up you cannot, should not, always keep dreaming about your perfect future with perfect whatever you want, what matters is your today <-- Did I just call myself a grown-up? Be happy in the present. Most us of here have all the basic things one would want in life. A house, clothes, a full happy stomach. We can walk, talk, watch and laugh. Appreciate it. Parents, siblings, friends, our cellphones and teddies, we take them for granted <-- if you love your teddy very much, give it a hug before going to sleep tonight. These days I see people in hospital in conditions you don't want to imagine and I keep realizing how lucky I am. No, it is not comparing yourself or feeling greater than others, but think what you are blessed with and thank God for it. Once you are content with what you have, there will be no itchy-burning feeling of not having something. It has made me feel so much better and am really glad =) <-- Yay!

Once I was talking to this guy and he said to me 'I have an MP5'
Me trying to impress: I have MP3 AND MP4.
Guy: MP5 is a gun. <-- oops. There was no music player 5 then.
I felt deeply embarrassed and could only say 'oh, kewl'. Yes, I said kewl. Kewl.. kwewl.. kweel. Cool is better.
Today my friend, trying to teach me how to palpate the lymph nodes, spilled a hot hot cup of tea on me. My labcoat looked like a used pamper <-- okay, that was so gross. I was happy for milliseconds that my dress wasn't spoilt when my friend reminded me of the ward test. Imagine how I'd have looked like taking BP and asking questions about tummy upset in a tea stained labcoat that resembled a used pamper? Yucky. To safe myself from the bad image I washed it with my facewash and left it on a window to dry for 15 minutes. All I got was some dust from the dirty window. Result: I had to wear a wet muddy labcoat and I smelled like a fish. To top it all, my test didn't go too good and my patient was a total creep and know-it-all. Oh well, it happens. Hope you had a good day.
|Yes, yes the labcoat isn't dirty. But she doesn't look too happy.|
|That's the spirit!!|
