Yesterday, I tried to go the whole day without uttering a complaint. It wasn’t so bad while I was at work. I don’t really talk much the whole day, glued to my computer as I am, so it was easy to curb whatever bad thing I wanted to say. On messenger, it was also easy because the people I was chatting were all in a good mood. Plus, I noticed that if I don’t complain, they don’t either and vice versa.
However, once I’m outside it gets a lot more difficult not to complain. I don’t really rant much even if I encounter something irritating, but yesterday, somehow I couldn’t help but just say it out. Then again, I wasn’t the only one who was complaining that time…
It is possible to get through the day without complaining, but it takes some work the first time. Besides, I don’t think we can all not complain, as there are things in this world that would naturally irritate us and our instinct is to protest. Still, it would be nice if we could say it nicely.
Then again, sometimes, nothing beats a good rant.
I finally got to indulge in my doughnut cravings last night. I have been wanting to sink my teeth into Krispy Kreme’s original glazed ever since Rain put a Plurk about him eating some. I bought six doughnuts, two of the orginal, maple glazed and blueberry cheesecake so I could share it with my brothers. I figured that when I get home, I could brew a pot of coffee and we could sit and take time to savor it.
Boy, was I wrong. Four out of the six doughnuts were gone in less than twenty minutes. And I didn’t have time to make coffee.
Still, it was fun. I’m still somewhat craving for another doughnut, but I think I’m ready to move on to the next food. Obviously, I love to eat, giving nary a care about weight and all that. There are times when I’m worse than a pregnant lady wanting to eat something elusive or unusual. But that’s just my hunger glands (whatever that is) talking.
Oh, I’m still looking for cannoli.
blogging without obligations
I got this link thanks to Karen over at Plurk. Check out “Blogging Without Obligation. Good read, good idea. It summarizes what I feel about blogging now, and how it’s changed since I started out in 2003. I wrote about it before, and I’ve put the badge up on my sidebar in support of this too.
