To Curious Eyes:
I was just thinking—and no, that’s not a first, for all you wannabe comedians out there….
Life seems like a game. It seems like one of those games with obstacles. (How cliché, does that sound?) I remember this one game on a Cingular cellphone called “Prince of Persia”. It was a big hit amongst my cousins and I. I remember playing it for hours upon hours and all of us became extremely competitive about what level we were on. But my point of bringing this up was that I remember the obstacles that came up which the Prince would have to overcome. Whether it was an evil bad guy, or a jump too high to make, the Prince almost always got through. Sure, he had to pull out his sword, but he got there.
I think that’s how my life is. There are so many obstacles in the way which I have to overcome. Yes, some of these are major, similar to those which caused a life loss in the game, but most of them are small. They are the ones I encounter on everyday basis.
I opened my browser to get started on my homework, this time it was the news stories on Yahoo which became a block in my way. Of course, due to curiosity, I am compelled to look through all the stories and read them. But all that takes time away from my work.
I guess I just have to learn how to discipline myself. My dad tells me to set a schedule of everything which I am going to do, and give myself time limits. At first I deemed it to be unrealistic because I do not have a good relationship with the process of setting goals and achieving them. But he is right. I need to teach myself how to set goals again. And this time, I have to stop making them so unrealistic so that I won’t end up a failure.
Wow, what a waste of a post.
I am Perfect. Ha, if only.
