The Holiday

As if it's not bad enough that our female composition already gives us a false image of reality.. we end up watching movies that further enhance that warped vision!!

Barring the random genetic mutation, and a few unexplained scientific miracles where the XY chromosome holders do indeed cater to that image we have built up, the bitter truth stands still! The movie version of a fairy tale does not exist in real life.

Therefore, for all the ladies out there who've been in those shoes, "NO MORE THE BEST FRIEND!"

- Thank you, 'The Holiday'

The past 10 days have been hectic. I'm part of a training program that started last Saturday (Jan 20th), which means I've only had 1 day weekends. It's been tiring to say the least, hence the lack of posts. Actually, I haven't been online much at all.

Now that I have a couple days off, I don't really have much to say! I'm in a 'bleh' state.. not in a bad mood or anything.. I just don't have anything to write about. Help!

Hopefully, I'll be back on track soon.. until then, don't forget about me! ;)

Blame Game

When we're young, we are taught early on that there are consequences to our wrong doings. As we grow older, life re-emphasizes that point to us again. Our minds end up being programmed to understand that wrong doing = negative outcome.

I think that's partly to blame for why we always have to find a reason for everything. Even death!

I was just talking to a friend of mine whose grandmother passed away this week. She wasn't sick, nothing was wrong.. it was sudden. Somehow, my friend and her mom have found a million reasons why they blame themselves for the grandmother's death!

Why the guilt? It's God's will. But then it made sense. There was no illness to blame for the death.. no accident to blame the driver of the car.. which leaves negligence and our own actions as the main targets for the blame! After all, negative outcome = wrong doing! :/

Guide to Phone Etiquette:

* If you call me and I don't answer, don't keep calling me unless it's an emergency. I will see the 1st missed call, just as good as I'll see the 50th. So stop miss calling me. It won't make me any less busy or any more available!

* If you've miss called me a million times and left me a million sms messages.. and I still haven't responded... GET THE HINT!

* If you call me and I'm on the other line, stop calling every 5 seconds. I saw that you're trying to call and as soon as I'm done, I'll call you.

* If you whine every time I call you about how long it's been since my last call, it'll just make the time gap even longer before my next one!

* If I ask you something via sms please respond via sms - don't call instead. If I was able to talk to you, I would've called to begin with.

* If you have a quick question and I didn't answer your call, just sms me. It's easier for me to reply with a quick sms instead of having a long conversation while I'm at work.

* When you call and I sound busy, I probably am.. so get to the point.
