Yeah, I really do like brains. The ultimate happiness is when I meet someone who really use the brain as I do. My brain is always working on something, usually a problem I need to solve, or something random shit I don’t even need to know. It is like I have two brains, one ‘daily’ brain and the one working all the time in the dark.

I like it when I am forced to use both of them, push and stretch my brain cells to their limits. I call it ‘mental orgasm’ when my brain(s) is(are) so sore that the only option to survive is to go to bed and get some sleep. My best friend can push me that far and I really love it.

If I don’t use my brain, my body will get restless and that will always cause me trouble, one way or another..haha..

Brain exercise is good for…

Issues.

I been the type of person who has to get their feelings out one way or other; well anger has been that outlet and has become one of my worst enemies recently. Every little things pisses me off; I don’t know whether its the hormones adjusting or second round of puberty but whatever it is I need to get rid of it or find a way to channel it.

It been a while that I been dealing with the stress, the work load, sometimes the loneliness, is getting me to push myself, to explore more and more of who I am- I been spending too much time with myself, per se. I am starting to feel like I need to find a away to explore this realm – who knows where I would end up. Though recently my interest has been in reading other peoples life; seeing their perspective on things and that’s been working. I am starting to see the world a slight bit differently than normal. Perhaps that’s the way to go. A day at a time.

I know a major change has taken place and well unlike seasons I am not that great with change. The hope is to be a better person at the end of the day but who knows.

Nothing Left – Day 58

This post made me think about my uncle who has small business that he bought back in 2000’s. Its completely family owned and I use to go there each summer to help out with whatever I can. One of the biggest cons about small business when its family owned is that you learn not to rely on anyone else other than family and well that can take a toll on the amount of work that has to be put in. Also another bad thing is that whenever there is emergency at least one person is stuck at the store; stressing while taking care of customers.

Though there are some great benefits to family business is that the money stays in the family, there will always be someone who can take of the business especially when its big family. I am recently looking into investing in a small business but I am bit hesitant as its only me an my husband and we live far from both our families. Plus the economy isn’t going that well and investing in a property, the store and the equipment and what if it doesn’t breakeven I would be at a great loss. I just want it to turn in to something I have to drag along I want to enjoy my creation.

So I hope for a better economy than perhaps the rest can be taken care of.

Small businesses are the backbone of America. Many are started but only a small percentage survive beyond ten years.

A close friend of mine owns a thriving small business that has been is business for over 44 years. Most of his employees and staff are family members. There are pros and cons with working with family members on a daily basis in a family owned company.

Unfortunately, when tragedy strikes a family member, the business is directly affected. When I heard about the tragedy, I immediately wanted to help.

I offered my assistance to the help out in the business however needed. Today, I gave my time and talent. I volunteered the entire day.

To my surprise, a couple of others also volunteered to help.

It’s now 11:30pm as I write this blog and I’m still here working. When I said the entire day, he took it literally. I’m certain…

Bridging the Gap With Silk Draperies

Like others I agreed , this is a touching post. Having to see such a view on life especially when it happens first hand I have to admit its excruciating and painful. This was the reason I couldn’t put myself in your shoes, the reason I didn’t want to be in healthcare, I couldn’t the pain it came with. Yes, there are times where as professional you see someone succeed and live but when something like this takes place the joy of saving someone goes away.

Behind the White Coat

Cambodia 544

When the cell phone hanging on my hip rang, I was trying to hang some expensive silk drapes in my living room. I was slightly annoyed. This was the third time my phone had rung and I was not even on call. I should have just paid the dang $120 to have them do the hanging for me. But noooo… I thought I could do it myself.

When I heard the sobs on the other end of the line, I left everything where it was, in the floor, and drove downtown to the big hospital.

I stood discretely outside the door, watching the heartbeat and respirations marked out on the monitor. Bleep. Bleep. Bleep. Sometimes it was ding, ding, ding. Doctors and nurses came and went.

Her mother and father took turns holding her as the rest of the grieving family gathered.

Soon, the machines and medicines would be turned…

Driving.

The privilege that we often take for granted; driving. Driving is something I miss after moving into the  New York City with my husband; people barely drive here. Plus its so crowded and there is barely any space to do anything. Relying on transportation such as a Subway and the buses is something I never thought I would do.

Growing up in New Jersey I got a car at 19 and having a car meant freedom.. lots of freedom. For a college student, that meant you can practically do anything and everything you wanted.

Especially  knowing the struggles that my mother went through. My mother who doesn’t drive because of her fear of getting into accidents but the most important thing she did was she fought to get me that car. Every step I see her struggle to get to work, to get home on time, though she barely works 10 mins away. Even after being in the Americas for 10+ years and being the first one to get the license in NJ, she doesn’t drive. I have tried to be the person who help her learn to drive once again, to get that confidence, but in trying to do that I made her fears come true, we got into a huge accident and she had to pay hard for that. Well after that we stopped completely, no more driving and I still feel I wish I could help her gain the courage. Knowing that she has had a hard life I want to be able to do something for but there I times I feel more helpless than her.

Thank You to Sonya Larose for the idea. If it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have thought of the whole memory.

Afraid to Drive – Day 57

GivingDaily

At 16, I learned how to drive. I thought everyone did. But just because most people learn how to drive, it doesn’t mean that everyone does.

I can’t even imagine not driving. I can’t imagine not having a car. I have never had to wait at a bus stop in the rain, never had to take a cab to work, never had to walk home from the grocery store with bags in tow, and never had to base where I live around the closest bus stop. Driving gives you independence. Freedom.

However, there are many reasons why some people don’t drive. Fear, no car, no license, just to name a few.

I ran into Louise today. We are the same age; fifty-three. She doesn’t drive; never has. She has no desire to. I asked her why. “I’m afraid”, she said.

She was waiting on a ride home after a very…

For the past few months, I’ve been getting queries with regards to blogging. If you’ve been reading my posts for a while, you know I frequently write about blogging and how I find many aspects of it baffling. Still, I suppose, I have reached some sort of a blogging comfort zone. And maybe that shows, which is why people sometimes ask me for advice. I find myself repeating again and again and so, I decided to put together all my wisdom in a post. There are many, many things I don’t do right or often enough or at all. But, I suppose, my greatest achievement is to have created something of continual value, so that when people come in, they find ideas they may find of use. Even that may see difficult to make, so, here are some ways to help you achieve it.

New inspiration.

Starting of the new year like many I set goals, and promising to follow up with them everyday.

Like the goal to start a blog after doing hours of research on where to start I decided and found two places to start blogging but after first few post. I stopped as always and there went my goal out the window.

Earlier today as I was just reading articles and searching for something pass my hours at home I bumped into the blog of Dan Ariely.

After reading about the first ten blogs posts or so-  I decided maybe its time I go back and add one of my own blogs. Here is to Dan Ariely to getting me inspired again.

I often wonder why is it that people, “fall of the wagon”, when it comes to following their new set goals? Like many it happens to me all the time I cant keep myself on a schedule even after wanting to reach the goal. Is it because I am lazy? I have tried numerous ways to keep up with new things but after a while I lose interest.

Who knew…

Begnning of Something New!

 

Everything takes for ever!

Everything needs research. In this world of technology we all playing catch up.. whether its from yourself or from the world.

Either someone is trying to catch up with school ( all those procrastinators).. or playing catch up with work ( because you had to attend that party).. there is not a minute that anyone wants to take a break to relax and see the moment.. who am I kidding? who has a time for break?!  We all are trying to reach a goal.. a never-ending goal which just gets replaced by other goals as time passes.. truthfully as we get old..and cranky..

I hate the idea of bogging.. because I never get to it.. but at the same time I want something to add to my never-ending list of work.. I try and try sometimes the technology, the work, the school just gets in the way of everything.

who doesn’t want to be something? we all want money we all want happiness; and the sad thing is that those two things never goes hand in hand. But I try each day to make them work, that’s my goal to be happy and to be rich.

Anyway. the plan is to blog not to get my thoughts out and to make sense of things on my journey to be happy and rich.
