Random thoughts...

"Life consists of what a person is thinking about all day." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Why do buildings in the Caribbean have air conditioning? Surely there must be a better way to cool buildings? As it is right now inside my workplace is FREEZING and we've got really poor air quality due to the lack of proper air circulation. I was not born in a cold place... I am not made for temperatures below twenty degrees Celsius...  If I step outside of my workplace it's somewhat humid.. a bit warm... it's raining today.
This is of course because of climate change. I've never known it to have so much rain in a dry season in all my years of life in T&T. Climate change - more people need to be aware of and acknowledge it.
Why do persons leave important things to the last minute? There's a Major Work Event happening and there's so much to be done... let's all run around like chickens with our heads cut off...
Why is it that when I say 'I'm vegetarian' people think that 'She eats fish'? I don't eat fish. I'm a lacto-ovo vegetarian. Fish is not included... EVER. Perhaps I shall just start telling the world the whole phrase: 'I'm a lacto-ovo-vegetarian'... I can see that this may lead to a lot of explaining on my part.
Why is my daily calendar stuck on April 18th! O_o have I been so busy at work that I haven't changed it?? :s
Why do drink makers think that 5% juice is acceptable?
Why is it not yet weekend?

It was very hot today, driving around.

Be thankful for some airconditioning.

My cousin has decided to go to a naturopath. I think she is going to refuse chemo and rads in the end.

Not sure how I feel about this.
I think I am more complementary than alternative.

I guess I am scared. If it doesn't work, what do I tell the kids years afterwards. That I stood by and did nothing?

My sister eventually told me my mother was never cureable. All the suffering was to buy time.

I do not want weekend to come. Let time stand still. And let us just exist in the moment.

I'm all for air conditioning in cars.. just not so much buildings..

I think if I was in such a position I'd refuse chemo & rads as well.

If it doesn't work then years after you tell them that you were able to respect and support their mother's decision - it's my belief that only the individual can know what's best for them.

Living in the moment is my dream.. one day I'll get there.. I can't wait for this workweek to be over.. :s

No rads and lumpectomy is a mistake.

Sorry, but...

I buy the studies for local recurrence

I don't believe in the chemo. And I don't like the cobalt 60.
Take the IMRT, it buys time.

can anyone go to an astram?

I just... ok, not my beliefs. Maybe I need to know more.

Just thinking, maybe after exams next week I could visit the blue star place.

I guess.. well cancer is stressful.
And I cut.. and I well, I need better coping mechanisms.

Anyone can visit.. if you wanna talk with someone it's best to make an appointment.. if you wanna go to a session (there's Guru Gita in the morning.. meditation at lunchtime and chanting in the evening) then you can just show up. :)
