I need my fix

U know what I hate?
Being in a *cough* diet *cough* but craves for sweet, sugary treats all the time!
And at the moment, it's Milo McFlurry!
How can a combination of two simple things taste so freakingly good?!

It's one of those days

Woke up earlier than usual for work today.
Grabbed a quick breakfast, unlocked the front door grille & started the car's engine.
Because sis doesn't have spare keys for the house, I nonchalantly threw the keys back inside the house after locking back the front grille.
And later realised I haven't unlocked the gate!
*slaps forehead*

Such things happen to me all the time that sometimes I feel like I'm sufferring from a disorder or something.

it wasn't our time yet

after reading this article in the news this morning, i immediately thought that it could have been us (us here would refer to Juzz, Bobet, Fieza & myself).
a few years back, the four of us decided to go for a picnic at Kubah National Park.
it rained since morning but we agreed to proceed with the plan.
but once we arrived there, it was raining heavily that there's no way that we could do anything in that weather.
so we headed back & i was behind the wheels.
from a distance, i noticed a yellow school bus coming towards us from the opposite direction.
i don't exactly have 20/20 vision & i totally suck in driving in bad weather.
to make things worse, we were both fast approaching a sharp curve.
i had an uneasy feeling in my gut that something bad is going to happen at the sight of it but i kept it to myself.
the closer we get to each other, it felt like the car is slowly pushed by an invisible force towards the bus (which later i figured might be the overflowing water on the road) & the bus didn't look like it's slowing down at all.
i kept my cool for as long as i could but not long enough when i realised that the bus was just inches away from us (and i quote Bobet who sat behind me, "when i turned to look at my right, all i can see is yellow." that's how close we were) & Fieza was screaming so loud i could swear i heard ringing in my ears for days.
i swerved the car to my left as far away as i could at the same time trying to avoid a ditch filled with running water while in my mind hoping & praying that we would be spared.
we were with all four of us unscathed.
trembling & traumatized from the unwanted experience but thankful that we were still alive.

footnote: i was so shaken after the incident, i never told my parents about it.
i don't think they would let me drive again if i did. :(
