People say that life is unpredictable. The twists and turns of fate can't be pre-judged. This is probably why I'd advise you not to believe any palmists, gypsies-with-crystal-balls , or tea -leaf readers.
Did I ever tell you why I never read the daily horoscope in the newspaper? I used to, for a while, pretty religiously at that.... but gradually I began to observe that whenever I read my horoscope , I have a reeeally crappy day ! Seriously...complete with mishaps and embarrassments and what not.
So, one fine day, I decided NOT to read the daily horoscope anymore ! Which in no way implies that I haven't had bad days since then.... cuz I've had my share ....believe you me .
Speaking about bad days.... I'm gonna come back to why I'm writing this...... Today has officially been my worst day in the last ...umm....3 or 4 months !
As I said earlier, life is unpredictable...... I stand by it. However, (yes, there's always a however) if looked at from a one-day-at-a-time view, life can be predictable , to a certain extent.
Let me illustrate.....
When I'm having a bad day, the ONE thing I'm sure off is that it'll get worse. It does. Now, I'm in no mood to argue the silver-lining concept ...... that happens too..... but only after the day has ALREADY gone from bad to worse.
So, the general order of events on any particular bad day can be outlined as:
Wake up ------ > bad stuff----- > worse stuff -----> Silver-lining event of the day ( probable) -----> Sleep
Hey, that's a new hypothesis.... or so I'd like to think.... I haven't gotten my silver-lining for today .... and this is probably a feeble attempt at it.
There's a very wierd concept of dreams that's also an adage ...... if uve dreamt it after sunrise, it might just come true ! and that's really scary right now.
You see, for most people, if they're sad, the saddest time is lying in bed, waiting for sleep to take over..... just waiting..... perhaps uve experienced it too...its a time that magnifies your sorrow in the guise of loneliness.
But that's still something normal..... what isn't , though is that today morning, I woke up with the exact same feelings that are mentioned above.... and its the first time i've noticed it in me.... usually the time before sleep is the bad one, if ever.
So, today, I woke up feeling low, alone and lost. That is how it begins. Next, I fail at getting results in a project, which till yesterday, I thought was as good as done. Then, I find my room taken over by my folks..... cuz the other TV isn't working..... followed by a spat with dad at lunch , of course, over my career plans (eyes rolling)
Further, towards the evening, my lappy starts showing signs of impending-death ( ummm.... please don't die ! )
next, part 2 of spat-with-dad.
and the worst part is..... no signs of my sliver lining ...where are you???????
The bottom line ....... crappy crappy crappy day !!
get better .... now, won't you? ( enter puss-with-cute-eyes a la shrek !)
