Accidentally Found Out

Follow-up to In LA 2 Years Ago from Pomme

How strange to find out my friend's page on google search. She had never told me she had put our pictures onto her web. I accidentally found it out today while I searched on google for my name (so free until don't know what to do!).

In LA 2 Years Ago

Writing about web page

My friends and I in LA.

Almost Set Fire Alarm!

Yesterday I almost set fire alarm! The reason is because I went into the kitchen to cook my lunch. I didn't see that the plug of the kettle was lying on the cooker. I lighted the cooker and put my pot down for my pasta sauce. Then, I started to smell something strange. It's not the smell of my olive oil – so what is it? Luckily that I decided to turn the cooker off first and tried to find where that smell came from. I found out with horror that I'd burned part of the cable of the plug!!! What if I didn't suspect anything and continue to cook? What if the switch on the kettle was on? Oh, I don't want to imagine! Anyway, I was lucky that I didn't get myself hurt and didn't set fire alarm. As a consequence, the officers came to replace a new kettle for our kitchen and rearrange the location of the kettle away from the cooker so that it won't happen again in the future as well as for the safety sake.


I have not done anything at all this week except relax! I give myself an excuse that I'd already submitted the first draft and I shall wait for the reply from my supervisor before I restart my work again. Actually, I still have some more things to do but you know..just can't get start with it. How bad I am. Anyway, I promise myself that I'll start as soon as my supervisor get back to me with her feedback and prepare myself to have a meeting with her. Therefore, I try to relax myself a little before picking up stress to hold again.

Talking about stress, I like one email my colleague sent me some times ago about stress management. I think the article in thee is very good and give me "gold". I can interpret it as follow:

"Small things can bring you a lot of stress if you never put them down and give yourself a break. Hence, the way to manage your stress is that know when to hold stress and when to put it down and rest for a while before holding it up again. In this way, you'll not have a nervous breakdown."

Guess I interpret it correctly. Anyway, from this email, I'm now putting my stress down for a while before I'll pick it up again next week. Is it my excuse to do nothing at all???
