Miserable Gloomy Tuesday

Have you ever had one of those days when everything would just go wrong?

Yeah, depressingly it happened to me today.

I was on the bus to the city, and the bus was getting fuller stop after stop, and there was this cute hot chick lovely young lady who came and sat next to me. The bus went on and on, and suddenly, she looked straight to my face, and said this:

"Hey, are you alright? You looked very worried. Is everything ok?"

I answered politely with a faked smile that everything was fine, and thanked her for her concern.

You see, it takes a lot to actually bring that "troubled-worried" look on my face, and when it does happen, it is dead obvious, and when it happens, things are usually beyond my control.

There are times when everything just does not seem to work the way we intend them to. There are times things just go so wrong that you start to question how unfair the world can be. This morning, was one of the times.

If you ask me now how I am doing, I can honestly tell you I do not know.

However, I all I can say is that I will be fine, and I will survive this.

I know I am meant for something more in this life. I will find it one way or another.

What I usually do to calm myself and find peace in the midst of all chaos and confusion?

I walk. I take a long stroll from the city back to my place via the riverside drive, approximately more than an hour normal-paced walk. I just love the view of the river. I love the feel of the wind crashing on me. I like the sound of the water rushing to the river shore. And the best part of all, I am always amazed by how the sky and waters always relfect the way I feel from the inside.

Dark Gloomy Tuesday

No matter how dark and gloomy the sky can get, they still look breathtaking. I just hope this would apply to my current situation as well.

Another thing I choose to do in those kind of days, is to indulge in something sinfully sweet.

Gelare Ice-Cream on Waffles with Cream and Syrup

No wonder people get fat over depression. Sugar helps to calm the nerves.

Do not worry about me, I believe after a good sleep, and a few tuning there and here in few days to come, things will start to look brighter. I have hope, and that hope shall be the strength I use to pull myself through this mess.

No matter how dark and gloomy the day is, I will still look to the sky !!

    secondly, i have no idea what u mean! i was reading your post and was waiting for the part where u say u were walking on murray street and a can of paint fell on u, then u got caught in the rain, missed the last bus, lost your wallet, locked yourself out of your house, computer crashed and all your episodes of grey's anatomy are wiped out and and.... i even read your post twice just to make sure i didnt miss anything!

    so u see its not such a bad day after all if all that didnt happen.


  6. hey marcus,

    anyways... its not entirely true that none of the things u mentioned happened today though...

    I did, however locked myself out of the house when i rushed out in a hurry to catch a bus with a thousand things going on my mind.

    Sucks though, had to wait for my housemates to come back after working hours...

    Anyway, that is not the part that toubled me, ahahahaha...

    no worries dude, I will be alright.
