Day 71


To feel much for others and little for ourselves; to restrain our selfishness and exercise our benevolent affections, constitute the perfection of human nature – Adam Smith.

It’s 6: 47 PM on day 71 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself All-Bran Flakes for breakfast, learn the formula to find the area under any graph –∫_a^b▒〖f(x)dx=F(b)- F(a)〗 – help myself in the bathroom – I debated with myself about whether to write this or leave it out and some of you make feel that this is too much information but at the beginning of this journey I promised myself that I would record every success, failure and embarrassing moment so as to inspire the citizens of the world to be better than they think they are 🙂 – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, and exercise for 30 minutes –I could sense that my mother wasn’t being present while helping me exercise and as a result I became increasingly irritated and my muscles got tighter – overall it wasn’t a particularly pleasurable experience – it never is – but today was especially awful 😦

As you may or may not know Oprah Winfrey is calling for an end to distracted driving where she is asking people to sign the No Phone Zone pledge agreeing not to text or talk on the phone while driving and even though I don’t drive I fully support this initiative  because at the end of the day NOTHING that anybody has to say to you is worth killing somebody’s mother, father, sister or brother and so with that said I would like to ask all of you to take the pledge and spread the word. Will you help Oprah and I change the world one driver at a time? 🙂

  1. Hi Nisha,
    Nice post 🙂
    I don’t see why it is so hard for the US to ban talking on phones in cars. In Australia it has been banned for years & if caught doing the wrong thing you are fined heavily. In Oz, you have to have your car engine fully off to be able to talk on the phone.
    Well done for also raising awareness!!!!
    Laura 🙂

    • I know it’s crazy and selfish I can’t help thinking about that poor mother in the video who will never get to see her daughter grow-up because someone couldn’t resist the urge yo pick up their cell phone 😦
