Little Dreams that Came True

Early this morning, a 15 year old me came to mind. Just like that I was remembering the things that I was wishing for back then. I used to picture myself going to the university and learning great stuffs (back then, it was a number of different fields but never IT πŸ˜‰ ). I would learn how to drive and own a cool car. I would go to work everyday, well-dressed, in that car. My office would be a nice one with great colleagues. My work would be appreciated and hence I would be respected.

After all of these years, those small little day dreams have come true. I am where I was picturing myself to be. And maybe a little bit more. πŸ™‚ What’s amazing is that I didn’t realise it on the way. All those little things came naturally, in its own time. πŸ™‚

But am I now at a standstill? I can’t really picture the me that I would be in 5 years. Different pictures come to mind but I can’t seem to choose which one I want it to be and work my way to that.

Are the things that I want now so out of reach? Or am I in need of some spiritual guidance? What’s missing? *duh*

Guess I’ll just go back to dreaming little dreams of me…Hoping that those will come true too. πŸ™‚

Work and Relationships

It has been a year already that most of my friends and I have started working. A year since work has become a dominant part of our life, taking up most of our time, leaving nearly nothing for family and friends. 😦 Week-ends just ain’t enough.

Don’t get me wrong. I love to work. I enjoy its many advantages but there is this one downfall that I find very regrettable. Maintaining old friendships become hard. We have MSN, we have a mobile phone, but we just don’t have time! It does happen that we are free. But then we are tired and want to relax at home.

We do meet many other people when we work and we kind of build good relationships with them but, (yes but!) it is absolutely not the same. It is not the same as those we created with people with whom we have spent hours and hours. The connection is just not the same.

I know that things will keep moving forward, like they always do. I don’t exactly mind that. πŸ™‚ Β I just wish that I had more time to be with my family and friends.

I miss the time when I used to have all the time in the world.

Where did the pigeons go?

It has been a while since I last saw a large number of pigeons together. Specially in Port-Louis. Most of the time they are considered a nuisance, dropping smelly stuffs on you when you are waiting for the bus. πŸ˜›

But lately, their number has decreased considerably. I used to see them all the time. Everywhere. Now I don’t. Where did they go?

Normally pigeons don’t migrate. They are resident birds. Was there an eradication program or something, like they did with the crows? I really don’t know.

Well, I just kind of miss the pigeons. *duh*

Goodbye to the Pop Star

I was never a fan of Michael Jackson. However earlier on today, I saw on the Orange website Β a poll going like this: ‘Pour vous, Michael Jackson Γ©tait-il une superstar ?’ meaning, ‘For you, was Michael Jackson a superstar?’

That question, in my opinion, is quite stupid! He was a superstar. Definitely. It does not matter whether someone likes his music or not. It just depends on how much he was known! and who doesn’t know him? It is not for nothing that he is called the ‘King of Pop’. I ask myself who was stupid enough to put a poll like that up.

Hmm, but I do think some people will answer no to that question, considering the problems concerning child molestation. But hey come on, he is no more. Better remember him in a good light. πŸ™‚

Bottom line, the world lost someone who had incredible talent in music. I sympathise with everyone for whom he meant something. Like one fervent fan said: ‘Forever in our Hearts’.

One day in your life
Youll remember a place
Someone touching your face
Youll come back and youll look around

One day in your life
Youll remember the love you found here
Youll remember me somehow
Though you dont need me now
I will stay in your heart
And when things fall apart
Youll remember one day . . .

One day in your life
When you find that youre always waiting
For a love we used to share
Just call my name, and Ill be there

Youll remember me somehow
Though you dont need me now
I will stay in your heart
And when things fall apart
Youll remember one day . . .

One day in your life
When you find that youre always lonely
For a love we used to share
Just call my name, and Ill be there
