Day 103

The measure of a man’s real character is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out.  ~Thomas Babington Macaulay

It’s8: 47 PM on day 103 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself Appam – bread made of rice batter –   and beef curry for breakfast, watch TV, sent Christmas messages to everyone – I hope – had lunch with my aunt and her family – it was the quietest Christmas ever this year there were only 9 people whereas, last year there were at least 20 … everybody went to India for my cousin’s wedding 😦 – feed myself Custard for dinner     and exercise for 15 minutes – the old me would have said its Christmas and left at that the new me didn’t – I couldn’t be prouder of myself 🙂     

We were having Christmas lunch at my cousin’s  house and I happened to say something along the lines of I’m going to buy the new Taylor Swift CD and my cousin looked at me and said why would you buy music when you can download it which I have to admit I have been guilty of doing in the past but somewhere along the line I realized that every time I stole somebody paid and from that day onwards I made a decision that NOTHING I wanted was worth compromising the values that I held so dear.  How far are you willing to go to get what you want? 🙂
