Winter chills

Im still learning how to get the hang of things technologically speaking...I still have to learn how to embed youtube videos and music players so I can get to share with you the mood Im in as I type my entries.

Ive been dubbed a technoblonde on the forum...its not my fault..As sexist as this sounds growing up barbies were for girls and computers were for boys...I was not in the least bit interested in getting all tangled up in weird wires and computer programs...My O levels came and I dreaded the end of year computer project we had to put me off technology for an extremely long time.

On the bright side...Im gearing up for my yearly vacation...yippy skippy :D I got my approval today and Im feeling absolutely fantabulous already..theres nothing like loads of me-time with a change in scenery and travelling to a place where you feel most in your element to lift the spirits and put the bounce back into your step...come december (YES!Its that long :D ) when I start work again Ill be skipping merrily down the hallways of that dreary dreadful place until they set me free and approve my resignation.

The first evening of my weekends are usually the most fun..I have all this energy that I cant wait to let out..I dim the my favourite weekend tunes...mostly those that remind me of weekends in another time..and I get dressed and think of a parallel life in history where I would be doing the exact same thing listening to the exact same feels so familiar yet so different..the past comes to terms with the future..and for those few minutes I let myself slip away into the back of my mind...allowing the familiar ghosts of the past to surround me and comfort me with mischief and laughter.

This is a track that soothes me no matter where I am..the bass...the vibes..its just sexy...I love playing it in the car on a long trip in the dark where its just the privacy of my thoughts and the beat...or in the background in my bedroom as I morph into a more stunning version of my doctor persona.

Daft Punk 'Something about us'.

My sister'sbirthday was a couple of days was one of the nicest evenings Ive had in a while..I had so much fun designing her birthday cake and I was extremely yippy skippy when it turned out perfect...she loves butterflies and I managed to incorporate that into what I had in mind...needless to say she cheered up immensely at the fact that her bday midweek didnt have to be boring.

Was just going through my music library..they say a perfume is a memory...evoking moments and stirring up feelings of times gone by...I believe the same applies to music..every song represents a time..a phase..a glimspe of the past..Im tuned to Def Lepards Hysteria...everytime it plays I find myself back in college..taking an afternoon drive when the stress of coursework was too much with my best friend and doing insane things just to vent it wasnt care free...but we were free this day it still tugs a half smile to curl across my lips as I find my thoughts continuing to reminisce down memory lane...
Another place...another time...another me.

Quite a while since Ive gotten back but yet I still feel out of my element...more like from the outside looking in.

I am glad to be home..Im glad for stability and newfound 'normalness'..I was hoping that I could create dreams and take my part in the world...I want to be the best surgeon that I can be...what began as a new adventure of hopes and dreams at work ended up in being the very bane of my existance and crippling me both as a person and a physician..I hope one day to help give professionalism a voice in an unprofessionally appalling system that thrives on a sick sink or swim basis and to each his own...Im tired of it of it all...I finally threw in the towel and decided to resign...So decision of my life...

On a personal level...Although Ive never believed in the word cant...Ive tried and tried so hard to fit in and I just cant...literally Im a fish out of water..I miss diversity...I miss the thrill of feeling alive...I miss intellectual discussions...more precisely common sense...I miss tolerance and acceptance..I miss fun challenging experiences that allowed me to get to know myself better by allowing me to push my cant understand people until you know cant function as a person unless youre a hundred percent honest with who you are and what you are...and you cant have peace of mind until youve accepted yourself and made peace with the whole package...the good...the bad...the ugly...because from that point on striving to be a better person becomes easier...youre equipped and able to handle the unexpected choices and challenges that life throws your way.

Its been daunting...some days I feel like Im disappearing...I dont want to get out of bed and Im not feeling so bubbly...I just want to hit the pause button and stand still in time...other days I think to myself like a steps...theres some shiny rainbow that will appear and bring back all the magic that I used to see life naive as it may seem..I still wont believe in cant...

Bitter lemonade

"Bitter lemonade on a cold summer day a sorry serenade but you said i neednt cry and if you should feel misunderstood maybe i could defer our first goodbye bitter lemonade our lives we paid for the moments we prayed together forever's a cliche and ever we say but never do we trust in forever to each is his own a clone of a heart and stone of adam&eve's unjust fairytales exist in the midst of a play in the fist of a game they call lust.. love will only be when we see the possibilities.. of sacrifice and for us i shall pray oh my bitter lemonade.. for sweet judgement day in Sweet Afterlife.."


My favourite poet in of my favourite bestests..Meyam...ubertalented...uberfunny..and gets me like nobodys judgement...just fun..lots of laughter and lots of her sassy no-nonsense attitude to life.
I adore Meyams poetry...and although my poetry has remained very private over the years..I gave in to the urge in me to immediately reply back one is our collaboration...

A Promise
Help me understand this rollercoaster ride..of never ending madness you planted one inside....never did you tell those around me of your crime...i sometimes wish you had hands that drip of aided suicide....a face i'd recognize before the shake of hands....a walk around the city of Heartbreak... before the neighboring lands.... love if i were you i would seal the perfect deal....with a warning before attempt; hearts should be made of steel.
Hearts indeed should be made of steel...numbness I wish to only feel..contradiction burns whats lost not found...Memories moments cocoon haunt before sunrise..bring my senses back to life...will it fade will it rest..words and more pretence.

One of the most profound moments we go through are the moments we realize we lose...a state of being which forces us to question so much and reflect on the could be's and maybe's...I let go of a part of myself that could not be reclaimed because I didnt own it...its out there somewhere on its own....I believed in it and I still do...not in its outcome..but in its strength...its uncanny ability to stay put together even when my faith in it wavered...its given me resilience when I needed it...given me hope when I never realized that I had lost it...dispelled all my preconceived notions about how I thought I should be...gifted me with the most fantabulous times Ive ever had..and I decided to allow that happiness to enrich life by setting it free.
We all think each and every part of us belongs to us but thats not true...everyday we give parts of ourselves to others...our thoughts...our feelings...our patience...our time...we pass on lessons...we learn lessons..we create moments within our families...our friends...our workplace...sometimes those things stay with you...other times when its for a worthier cause you choose to let them go.

"Pain comes in all forms...the small twinge, a bit of soreness, the random pain...The normal pains we live with every day..Than theres the kind of pain we cant ignore..A level of pain so great that it blocks out everything else...makes the rest of the world fade away...Until all we can think about is how much we hurt.
How you manage your pain is up to you.
We anesthetize..write it out...embrace it...ignore it.And for some of us the best way to manage pain is to just push through it...
You just have to ride it out, hope it goes away on its own, hope the wound that caused it heals. There are no solutions, no easy answers. You just breathe deep and wait for it to subside. Most of the time pain can be managed, but sometimes the pain gets you when you least expect it, hits way below the belt and doesn't let up. Pain you just have to fight through, because the truth is you can't outrun it, and life always makes more."

Bedtime thought:
Strength...often the knowledge that youre strong is what makes close ones take comfort in the fact that you'll be okay...sometimes thats a good thing...and sometimes...nothing in this world can make you feel more alone...
