Four types of people I do not like

25 01 2012

1.Flaky people.
It’s annoying.Make up your mind.

2.Whiners
We all have our bad days and whine about this,that and the other.But when you dedicate your entire lifetime to whining about everything,you gotta stay away from me.I don’t like negative energy around me.

3.People who can’t do stuff by themselves.
This is mostly a female problem.You want someone to go to the bathroom with you.You want someone to accompany you to point A.It is only after you get to point A that the accompanee is informed that stops will be made at points B,C and D.Why????You want someone to show you where the sugar is in the grocery store!The list goes on.I will only be available for IMPORTANT stuff.Thank you!

4.Liars.
Need I say more.We all lie but some people lie way more than others.Here’s how I take lying.If you lie to me that means that a)you think I’m so stupid that I will believe your lie or b)I’m so stupid that you actually have the nerve to lie to me.Now that’s a sticky situation.A lie is a lie,the intent is even more critical.

Death and Loss

18 01 2012

I’ve been wanting to write this post for the longest time,so here goes.

13th May,1993

It was a bright,lovely day and I had just got home from school.The time could have been anywhere between noon and 2pm,I don’t quite remember.I was tired and hungry after a long day of school.All I wanted to do was eat,do my homework and go out to play with my friends.I sat down on the couch after saying hello to my mother.

Ring.Ring.Ring!!! is all I can hear.My mother rushes to answer the phone.Within a few minutes,she is wailing,screaming,yelling and everything in between.She announces that her husband,my beloved father is dead!!She drops to the floor crying, questioning why it had to happen to her.The maid and the garden boy emerge from the kitchen,the driver and my uncle are all concerned about what is going on.

I watch intently as the adults around me huddle to help my mother off the floor.Everyone looks sad.I know something is wrong.My father is dead but what does that mean.The soon to be 7 year old me does not fully understand.Thoughts are rushing through my head.I don’t get it.I really don’t!!!

To this day,I don’t think I understand the concept of death.Not like death is something easy to understand.I get the loss but the death part of it has completely eluded me.Everytime someone announces a death to me,I revert to the 7 year old me on that day in 1993.A part of me gets it and a part of me doesn’t.

Rest in Peace daddy!!!





2012

17 01 2012

It’s that time of the year again.New beginnings,aspirations,hopes,goals and what have you.

Looking back,2011 prepared me for this brand new year.Every lesson learnt,battle fought and success achieved has prepared me for all that is to come this year.

I look forward to a terrific year filled with lots of great things.





2011 in review

2 01 2012

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,700 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 28 trips to carry that many people.

Not too bad considering that I only started my blog at the end of the summer(July/August).
Happy New Year!!
