Hello!

So lately I've been giving a lot of thought to life in general and I realised that, well, there are many things in life that can make one so very upset. I mean, just going through a regular day at work can potentially kill you.

No kidding okay. You see, there is even a list of the top ways to die at work.


Top ways to die at work

(Via Youtube).
1. Vehicle accidents (46%).
2. Falling from a height (12%).
3. Being hit by a falling object (10%).
4. Being hit by a moving object (10%).
5. Contact with electricity (7%).
6. Being trapped between stationary and moving objects (6%).
7. Being assaulted by someone (3%).
8. Being trapped by moving machinery (2%).
I don't know about you, but I think that the likelier causes of my possible death at work aren't listed here. Meaning that rage, mortification and suicide from other peoples' stupidity aren't very common causes of workplace deaths. But I guess that if you live in Australia you have more pressing issues to worry about rather than waste your mental capacity on stupidity in the workplace.

But I digress. My point is, that life is hard and you have to be careful when navigating through the perilous, meandering, shadowy path of life or the path you walk down will force you up against a wall of misery, chasm of despair or velley of pain. It's true. Life can be upsetting. Let me just illustrate by drawing on a real-life example.
Vanessa 
i am upset
Jacqueline 
why pls
Vanessa 
i kept the crabmeat sushi for last as i thought it wld be the nicest
but no it is not
Jacqueline 
omg that is bad
then you keep for nothing
Vanessa 
ya
i eat it for nothing as well
And this is just one of the many incidents that can turn your day into a potential nightmare. It's really upsetting you know, you put such high expectations onto something and then it turns out to be sucky. I'm sure we've all felt some kind of disappointment when this happens. You know, like Nessie and her crabmeat sushi, me and my unfulfilled plans for the day, you and your iPhone 5...the list goes on. But fortunately, Nessie can digest her sushi within 30 minutes, I can wait 24 hours to start my day afresh and make a new list of plans to not fulfil, but you are stuck with your iPhone 5 for 2 years unless you want to spend $900 on the HTC One. Which is the most beautiful phone there is out there.

Another thing that I'd like to highlight about life is that, there are so many difficult decisions involved and making the wrong choice may ruin your entire life. But let's not go there. Let's just start with a simple day-to-day example. Which begins of course, with a conversation with Nessie.
Vanessa
i still dk what to eat la gah
Jacqueline
me too
im quite troubled
Vanessa
me too
wtf
its rly so upsetting
Jacqueline
i should not have eaten macs yesterday
Vanessa
YAH
what was i thinking really
stupid
So here's another first world problem that you might be encountering on a regular basis - the "WHAT TO EAT FOR LUNCH" dilemma. I ask myself this every single day of the week. And I ask Nessie. And my colleagues. Everyone. I would tweet for opinions as well but you know, I like to pretend that I have a real life outside of social media. (I don't).

Anyway, I'd like to say that this is a really difficult decision to make. You're hungry and need to eat. But, you're sick of eating the same old food day in and day out. The only acceptable meal which you don't mind eating on a regular basis is Macs. But you know, you surely don't want to be Supersized You. So you can only choose to eat at Macs once a week. So what do you eat for the other four days?!!! You see how troublesome grabbing lunch can be?! No wonder Sheldon charts out everything from his meals to his bowel movements. Planning for the day takes so much stress out from the equation.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg for all the first world problems that we're facing. Don't even let me go into the part where people ask "What do you want for your birthday?" which, by the way, is something that my good friend James has already started to ask. And of course, there's always the very relevant problem of, so many clothes, too little cupboard space.
Yes, this is just one of my online shopping sprees. Show this to your mother and tell her that you do not have a shopping addiction.

In conclusion, life is very tough and this can be upsetting, and I would like to leave you with a video to reflect on.


Cheers Thank you and have a good tolerable day ahead.
❤ Jac.
