What have I learned today?

Today I have learned that I can get myself injured without really knowing it or feeling the pain or sting -- much like this morning when I stumped my little toe unto a colleague's shoe, or scraped my hand somewhere and only noticed the injury after feeling something sticky (blood was already oozing out) between my toes, and a long slash at the back of my hand.

Today I also learned that alcohol stings like mothurfcuking hell, especially if you happen to spurt it straight into your unsuspecting eye.

Today I learned that there are things in my life that I can really laugh about without needing to be guilty or embarrassed. I grew up a painfully shy person (I prolly am still, tho I can fool you with the way I carry myself in this blog lol), but I'm quite pleased with the way I turned out to be -- tho I still have a lot of "braving up" to do (I hear you Julz, haha!) and I do have (and will prolly still have) my retarded moments.

Today I learned that I could sit still and not impale myself with senseless predictions of a future that does not yet exist and therefore I should not have worries about. Joanna, you are right, I could be happier if I expected myself to fall flat on my face instead of landing on my 12-year old, daredevil feet that day I jumped off that moving tricycle. But some curiosities we really have to die a little to find out, don't we. That's okay, because now I can tell you what it feels like to land on your face, haha!

Today I learned, that being careful doesn't really save you anything, it just prolongs the coming of things, things that are inevitable -- death, love, loss, rejection, yes, even happiness. You know, like no matter how slowly you pour water into a glass, you'll still fill it?


Today is Tuesday, and I LOL at life. =)
