When grumpy turned less grumpy

You know your morning is going to be a bad one when you: Start out your day with a tummy ache, but with no real urge to go. Find lots of kernel shells in your bowl of oats. Realise that the skirt you bought 2 months ago barely fits you now. Still have a tummyache. Get ready early only to find that the ride to the bus stop is late. Forget to bring your ipod which is still charging at home. Get onto an impossibly crowded bus. Balance at a rather odd angle. Bump into your overzealous intern on the bus. Have people shove you while they get off, then have someone else block you while you try to get off. 😦


Bad morning. But I say a little prayer for the little bright lights in this gloomy morning. 1) A happy SMS 2) Gold Access to MM 3) R being in later today 4) and a nice hot caramel macchiato.

Ooh, and must remember to pay my credit card bill and IRAS! The sheer amount of interest charges I accrue at 24% per annum is NOT fun.ny.



The Fear.

In the cycle of life, the topic of mortality often gets brought up with some, if not many proclaiming to not fear death. Hear hear I say, because the deep-seated fear really lies in the fear of suffering versus death. The fear of suffering in pain, the fear of being a burden to other, the fear of not being able to accomplish plans and ambition overrides all other fears. Death is simple and black-and-white. You die, you end your pain, and you end someone else’s misery. You don’t die, now that is the issue. You don’t die, you suffer, and you bring burden atop of others’ existing burdens. Hence, I think euthanasia should be seriously considered as an option, religion aside. Life is complicated, why do we insist on complicating it further?


On a completely different note, these thoughts have given me impetus to think about how I live my life and how I prioritize my time.
