Some Love Doesn't Last Forever...

I have this habit of inappropriately getting sick during festive seasons. I am now recovering from a fever which has lasted for two week, give or take. It wasn’t fun to say the least. However judging from my sickness which lasted for quite a long period, I feel so much more overjoyed! and so much more grateful for being healthy again albeit not a 100%. I was back at work last week and that too wasn’t fun because I was as you would’ve guessed, not feeling well. Another thing I’ve learnt was the deed one does in routine/everyday somewhat halts/comes to a stop when one is stricken by (in my case) sickness.

 Which reminded me of this quote, "Take advantage of five matters before five matters:  youth, before old age; health, before sickness; wealth before poverty; your free time before you become busy; and life, before death."   This quote makes so much more sense now. Let’s just hope it stays longer in memory.

Being absent minded and taking things too easily can be life risking. Yesterday, I said to myself that I’d be useful and get some things done. With that in mind, I started cleaning my aquariums and pond. There was one particular aquarium that stood out because it was literally yellow in colour. I drained the water out, cleaned the filter and everything in it and started filling it with water. Only that I forgot to fill the aquarium with aquarium salt/ liquid C02. To put it short my negligence had led to the death of several fishes. Out of guilt and exhaustion, I was considering a different hobby.

 It’s funny while you’re fasting the thought of eating doesn’t cross the  mind but when you’re not every idle moment wishes to be filled by chewing something or drinking something nice and sweet and cold. Alas, the desires of mankind.

Recently, I was fortunate enough to purchase a new cpu, it has now made life so much easier and convenient. Only bad thing is, I spent way too much time now watching animes and other entertainment shows. This in turn prevents me from doing more necessary and important stuffs like studying and house chores.

Lastly, I’d like to wish everyone a Happy Eid. Plant more trees, please.

about the writer


Often seen as cold, bitter and distant but in reality is cool, sweet and not very distant..haha Sometimes I feel like saying what Kierkegaard said, People understand me so poorly that they even dont understand my complain about them not understanding me. On the other hand often I assume of understanding people i guess its a given or an irony or something else..depends on how you see it..
