maybe because i'm a bit free at work now, plus its the emo time of the month, so my mind starts to wander off and i think about things again. this time, the topic was on regrets. somehow, it seems like most of the major life decisions i had to make involved choosing between one or the other. despite being happy with my choices, i always wonder "what would it have been like if..." Perhaps its not so much regret per se, but wondering what the grass on the other side would have looked like. there are plenty of crossroads (seemingly small now, but big at that time) that i have come across; or like, wondering why i did things a certain way? why couldnt i have done it another way to achieve a better outcome? That sorta thing.
ok it sounds very business analytical but it involves things closer to the heart, like friendships and such. how could i have put in more effort to maintain or develop the relationships not easily forged. im not very good at that...
and also plenty of the more serious decisions, concerning studies and career.
But then yq very kindly reminds me that its all a butterfly effect. if i hadnt taken certain paths at crossroads then perhaps things wouldnt have turned out the way they are now. and that no one is here by chance.
and maybe the main reason why i'm emoing is because i've got everything going all good for me now :) And i have every reason to be thankful, yet i'm not, i'm here lusting after the bygones. Tsk, the strange fickleness and greed of thy human heart.

Went for a wisdom tooth op yesterday.. and despite the dentist claiming it a success, i felt the real pain when the anasthesia wore off 4 hours later. OUCHHHH. had to hurry up take pain killers. but now its alright already, so i just have a swollen cheek that makes me look like i have some sort of a square jaw and uber pouty lips. Haha..
the dentist also commented that its "amazing how such a small mouth can have such a big wisdom tooth". so its official! i DO have a small mouth! thats why i can drink beer as fast as everyone else! :P
was given a 5 day MC but i think i should be back at work tmr. got a lot to do!

im upset. i've got a wisdom tooth growing out at a very weird angle (sideways into the cavity of my mouth, pushing against my tongue) and i've scheduled the op for next week. i predict it will be a very painful time. which means no more running leh. very upset. :(
