You do the craziest things when with friends. You laugh at more ridiculous stories and you laugh harder. You get the guts to make fun of random strangers on the pretense of complimenting them. You crack jokes so cheap they would make you shudder if you were alone. You watch item songs from “Filmazia” and they make you roll on the floor snickering, rather than making you puke like they usually do. With friends you experience moments that actually make you feel alive. Things happen that you haven’t thought about before and they actually start making sense. Your path is redirected and you like it.

The moment of change is sudden, on a whim. Like this one time, me and a friend were waiting for the W-22 to take us on a route that had previously been verbally practiced and re-practiced, and out of the blue we’re laughing and getting on another bus that is much better suited for us both. It is funny how fate guides you sometimes.  In my case, when I get up in the morning I never have a plan of action. Maybe that is a bad thing. Maybe I am too dependent but it is all good, because it’s God that I rely on. He makes way for me every time.

When you don’t want to talk about plans or substitute plans, when you prefer going with the flow, you find that the universe doesn’t want bad things to happen to you. Life is one big stage like everyone says and nothing is meaningless. I always felt funny when I saw the intricate traps Tom and Jerry set for each other, one action leading to another to another to another… but now I know. This is how the world works: like clockwork. The flap of a butterfly’s wing in one part of the world may cause a hurricane in another. I am a believer.

All events in your life are not happy. They’re dramatic. You can’t blame nature for that one time you got stuck in a traffic jam and had to pee real bad. It turned out to be memorable didn’t it? Well, you’re talking about it.
Whenever you get depressed in your life and everything is just a different shade of gray, consider this: you’re the lead in a movie and there are a million people watching you. Now, you want your story to be a hit, don’t you? The troubles you have, small ones or colossal, they’re just a part of it. One part. You get to live the happy scenes too. Let the misery come at you. Shout, “Bring it on!” because everyone who is watching your movie wants a happy ending, and so you’ll get one.
