Day 194

You become your choices. – Unknown

It’s 3: 58  PM on day 194 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, make sandwiches for the people in our housekeeper’s neighbourhood (if you have no idea what I am talking about refer to ‘Day 184’) – I buttered the bread while my mom put the jam on – it was SO much fun the only thing I would do differently was tell my mother to buy foil instead of using the sandwich wrap but still all in all it was great day 🙂 – tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – I woke up to find that four more people had made donations to my campaign after I’d went to bed yesterday which brings my grand total raised on my birthday to $161.68 –a special  thanks to Anonymous, Melanie, @dianarusso (Diana), @laurajteacheroz (Laura) and Anonymous for their generous donations 🙂 –      feed myself rice and curry for lunch, go visit my cousin who came back from university for a week and feed myself pizza and garlic bread for dinner.

Today I signed up to be a part of Earth Hour 2011 hoping that all of the members of my immediate family would participate unfortunately for me I didn’t take into account that Kevin – my 10-year-old brother –  couldn’t survive an hour without watching TV so we reached a compromise I told him he could use everything in the living room provided that everything else in the house was switched off and although I tried my best to my okay with it I remember feeling so annoyed that he refused to cooperate  but then I realized that sometimes you should stand for something even if it means standing alone.  Do you only make the right choice when you’re in the majority?

  1. Stand alone. Stand together. The important thing is the standing.

    So glad to hear you got more donations! Hope you’ll get even more. Soon.

  2. Another great post Nisha. Thank you for asking the question.

  3. Nisha, You continue to amaze me. As a previous comment states, the important thing is whether you stand (if that is alone or together). Many people all over the globe were standing with you! I was; I also participated in Earth Hour 🙂
    I am glad you had a lovely birthday & the donation was the least I could do to acknowledge you turning 20! xoxo
