Day 271


Yes, disappointment over perceived unfairness, injustice, promises not kept, tends to go hand in hand with increasing prosperity. Expectations are dashed. What can I say! – Mary Douglas

It’s 7: 28 PM on day 271 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself bread and chili chicken for breakfast watch TV, have lunch with my extended family at a Chinese restaurant – Sushi was an experience a horrible experience but an experience nonetheless LOL 🙂 – tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign –Mark Baker made a donation – Mark if you’re out there somewhere please know that I REALLY appreciate your random act of kindness 🙂 –feed myself rice and chili chicken for dinner, brush my teeth once more and watch some more TV.

Yesterday I went to bed with a list in my head of all things I was going to do today so naturally I was deeply distraught when I realized that I wouldn’t be able to make my weekly sandwich run due to the fact that our housekeeper, Nandipha, failed to show up for work but now I understand that in life not everything is going to go according to plan. Do you totally freak out when your expectations are dashed?
