A Short Rant. Again.

Today, an online friend asked me how was my day yesterday. I said it was interesting. Which lead to him asking how so. And it became to me telling few discoveries I've made. And yes. They're angsty. Moody. Ranty. Sad. Pathetic. Basically like that. What did I get as a reply? Nothing much, just an "Owh," before they started to tell what an awesome day they had yesterday.

This went on with me inserting "Oooooh" and "Ahhhh," along few questions in making them tell me more about their wonderful day. Then, the conversation just stopped there.

So I learned something new this morning. Well, I've known it for a while but I just didn't want to accept it. But the lesson is:


If someone asked you how was your day or how are you, just give them a non commital answer such as

"Good,"

"Okay,"

"Normal,"

Before you ask them back so they can tell you all about their day. 8 out of 10 times, that's the reason they even asked about your day in the first place.


Hey, you might think I'm acting like a self centered attention whore, which I admit I can be at times. Its how I feel like whenever this happens. And boy, that so means that most of the time, I do feel like a self centered attention whore. For most of my life. See? I'm totally proving it right now.


*takes a deep breath*


On a completely different note, Mozart has dedicated the Song of The Day to me. Do check it out. I mean, the whole post. And while you're at it, the whole blog.


Peace Out.

hahaha... all I know is, when I'm out shopping and when my friend ask me if I'm hungry... I instantly assume, she's hungry...

sometimes people reflect their words..

Usually, I'll be the one asking my friends if they're hungry just so they'll know I'am and we can go eat! Perfect plan. Better than whining "I'm hunnnnngryyyy,"

But then, as a self acclaimed self centered attention whore, I've never just "Owh" someone's problems just to tell mine. I'll just listen to theirs and help as much as I could. Before stealing the spotlight when they're all okay.

That's what I don't understand about some people. No timing at all.

I know what you mean, he only asked you because he couldn't wait to tell you about how HIS day was. People are like that.

Nice post :)
