Only A Few Seconds To Die

Image
Jostein Gaarder said in his book Maya (I read it back in my sophomore year in college one hot summer class afternoon) "It takes billions of years to create a human being . And only a few second to die." I totally agree...... so why waste every moments we all have. Let us all savor the main course called life!

Enjoy your little moments, they are the spices in your wonderful life.

I had the hugest crush on "Kevin Arnold" Fred Savage in real life.... when I was really really young (hooooray for the 90's kids!!!) He was my ideal boy then. hahaha. I breathed this show during my years of swooning. I have the DVD's given by my friend in Hawaii too.
To reminisce here are random quotes from my favorite "The Wonder Years":
"All our young lives we search for someone to love. Someone who makes us complete. We choose partners and change partners. we dance to a song of heartbreak and hope.... all the while wondering if somewhere, somehow, there's someone perfect who might be searching for us."

“Growing up is never easy. You hold on to things that were. You wonder what's to come. But that night, I think we knew it was time to let go of what had been, and look ahead to what would be. Other days. New days. Days to come. The thing…

When I was a tad bit younger, I wanted to be a lot of “somebody”.  I wanted to be a scientist, a film maker & writer, an architect, a musician, a radio jock, a composer, a visual artist (comics, special effects etc.), a photographer, a national badminton player heck, even a hiphop dancer.
All that I wanted to become revolved much around the arts and a little bit of sports and science. I wanted to be a scientist because of Doogie Howser M.D. haha my sister and I used to watch it way back when. He was really cute and the stories were awesome. I do not remember much about it because I was way too young for it. I asked mom to buy me a test tube set (the real ones) and every material there is for a laboratory. She managed to compensate me with a Barbie doll telling me that the things I wanted were dangerous hahaha. Then I wanted to become a film maker & writer, yes you may have guessed it it’s because of another TV Show this time, The Wonder Years. I w…

I haven’t written for sometime now, it feels like ages even if it was just a month or so. Full length stories or thoughts don’t come easy really. But things start from a single thought and you play around it to create the so called body. I have been back and forth with so many things that I tend to forget to enjoy the simple things in life.
A few days ago, I was having dinner with a friend after a long day at work. We would actually just rant about things that had happened, but this time it was different. I wanted to enjoy the food (luckily I love the music played in the background at the resto) so I asked for a quiet time. Rarely that it would happen and it felt good. Everything has been in fast forward the past few months. It seemed like I was in this roller coaster ride, only there were no stops. Unlimited rides so to speak. I needed to have a break from it all and what better way to do it? Eat silently with good music on.
