Christmas and Boxing day have passed, and soon, it will be the start of a new term, yet again. What have I been doing these past few days since coming back...?? Nothing much really... apart from going to my aunt's place for a Christmas lunch yesterday. Her friend was really nice to come over to my place to pick me up, as there is no transport on Christmas Day. Had a great lunch, received a number of pressies, caught up with the family, as well as their friends and relatives, who were warm and welcoming to me, the only Chinese in the presence of all Indians. Heh... =) Went from talking about SG, to Chinese palmistry, then they wanted to see at which age would the children marry. So we ended up plucking hair and letting them tell the ages with the number of knocks that a ring, suspended over a glass of water by the hair, would make on the sides of the glass. Apparently those who tried, were accurate (those married couples lah), so the children tried too. Sadly, mine didn't even knock. Haiz... looks like I won't get married liao...
That's one of the reasons why I try not to go to fortune tellers. Some say must trust what they tell you implicitly, others say to take it with a pinch of salt. However, I feel that once you hear what they have to say, whether you believe it or not, psychologically it works on you. It's as if your future has been predestined. You have no control over it. On the other hand, one can say that to know what the future holds, you can try to alter it after that. However, in that case, life loses meaning, doesn't it? Life is all about surprises, and exploring the unknown. Isn't it great to just take life one day at a time, and not worry about the future, the responsibilities it brings, the worries that you have to take on, the way you need to act to portray your maturity? I think so.
I used to think that I could plan the future, my future. That proved otherwise when it came to uni. Perhaps that can be done on the career aspect. Apart from that, the future is so unpredictable. You can plan your lifestyle, the friends you make, the way you want to live it, but not the way life treats you. You cannot control what life dishes out to you. That taught me one thing: Live life 1 day at a time, and not to have expectations, coz when you do, they will seldom be met, and you will be faced with disappointment. Sad, huh?
