No Tony Stark...

Ironman 3


Whoever said, ‘desperate times call for desperate measures’ hit the nail on the head because that is what I am or have been-depending on whichever side of the coin you look at it from. What kind of person would contemplate selling something that doesn’t belong to them if not a desperate one? I am glad I returned to my full senses because I DO NOT want to be someone like that.
A needy chat with a friend of mine made me realise this in a roundabout way. I’m not sure whether it had to do with what I was asking or the thoughts going through my head that particular time, but I knew it was wrong. Thinking of it in depth actually brought tears to my eyes so much so that I went about making amends to my brother and his friends. However much I have helped them grow their business, I have no right to sell what belongs to them and not I. It isn’t right. And, I am sorry for even entertaining the thought.
Fun-knee how we learn a few things about people we care about in a chat, no? And how the things we know about ourselves kick in in the most unexpected of situations? I’ve been called proud and arrogant to my face a time or two, which really doesn’t bother me but during this chat, I knew that however needy and in a rough patch I maybe in right now, I still HAVE my PRIDE! And, it will be my downfall. I also learned that; I should stop being everyone’s cat woman because at the end of the day, I have no Tony Stark to catch me when I fall.
When all is said and done, I am glad my brother saw the humor in what I was trying to do and brushed it off. He knows the reason why, which is OK. We actually had a laugh about it after my apology then went on to other things. I miss him like no man's business.
As you can see, I still believe in superheroes and majorly excited about the last installment to the Ironman franchise. The last time I will be seeing Robert Downey Jr (massive crush on him) as Tony Stark in Ironman. When Ironman 2 came out, I'd made a date to go with one of my bffs and we ended up missing it at the cinema. This time round, I SHALL go alone. No more waiting on you, Belle.

The Power Of Association

One of my best friends sent me this quote and as I went through it; I reflected on the people I surround myself with both family and friends. There are friendships that I let go of during the course of the year and as I did that: I realized that the fewer friends you have, the better. It is said that,”The friends we keep define who we are as a person”…well, I didn’t want to be defined by such people because who they are is not the person that I am.
I am proud of the set of friends that I keep and maintain now because they are good people. They have been there for me in more ways than they could ever know. It is partly due to them I am who I am at the moment and I am happy about it and I appreciate them more. Here goes the quote….
"The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting…

I Love Technology.

I am a lover of technology despite the fact that it changes all the time. It is one thing that will never remain constant... Maybe that is why I love it? All the application, software creators put out something new, a few tweaks to their applications and software which is a good thing due to the multitude of competition out there. I always marvel at what comes out to help the user when it comes to software, applications and programs.Recently, I was reading a book using Adobe Reader. Whenever I would start the program to continue with the book, it would bring up a notification for an upgrade to Adobe Reader X which I would unfortunately ignore because; I tend to read when I don't have an internet connection.I decided to bookmark the link so as not to forget about the upgrade. I usually bookmark websites that I visit time to time and find interesting, links I need to check out for software upgrades and installations.After getting an internet subscription, downloading Adobe Reader X …

Obsession: The Fat Doctor.

Most of you know I am a certified TV addict who watches anything and everything.
Currently, I am obsessed with the TV show The Fat Doctor. It is about a certain Doctor at a hospital who gives hope and gastric bypass surgery (cut their stomach to the size of an egg) to the morbidly obese. I found out that now Britain has the largest number of morbidly obese patients and that the number of people who have had this surgery done rose from 600 a year to 100,000. Last time I knew, America had the largest number of morbidly obese citizens with Alabama being the fattest state in America.
It is typically not something I would watch but the stories told by the patients, the state of their health and appearance as they go about their day to day lives is touching. The surprising bit about the show are the different reasons as to why the patients are morbidly obese with each episode – Early puberty, loss, divorce, genetics, environment, depression etc. I find them all valid and beyond questionab…
