Throwback Thursday

So just before you start wondering what's with the "Throwback Thursday" trend, I don't really know. I just know that I'm kinda going with the flow..

It's technically Thursday since it's about 12 a.m. I've been in the uni's library ever since I left my class at 9 p.m. I'm almost done with my work so started reminiscing about my past life.
Reminiscing, the process of "life review", is an important part of my new life. It pretty much consists of meditating, watching my thoughts about life, letting go and freeing any attachments to any existing thing(s).

So where was I? Oh, throwback Thursday. Well, I'm not sure if it's only me or somebody else out there went through this phase were you loved to believe that you're living inside a snow globe. A happy one. And you just don't want to leave it or face the world outside it. Sophisticated people refer to that as a "comfort zone" but that's not exactly it. They are different things deciding not to be bothered about the noise outside your happy snow globe and not wanting to face the noise. Does that make any sense at all?

Anyhow, so I truly believe that I lived "the life" back in my undergraduate college life. Me and my bestie and other two very good friends cared less about all the gossips, mess and things around us.
Life was literally simple and sweet.
Worst thing we could possibly imagine happing to us was not being able to meet a deadline for an assignment or maybe not studying well for an exam. We used to celebrate each others little achievements. Happiness was bigger with, I dare say, less cost.

Dear human beings, help me keep happy and content in my new snow globe. Get your arrogance and attitude problems together. Stay away from me if that's not so much to ask.

There I said it. Good night. xx

I couldn't agree more. I love how you said snow globe, not "bubble".

@Noor: They're two different things, aren't they? ;)

Noor said...

they are, but the snow globe is a new concept, no one mentions it. we're always fussing about our bubbles.
thank you for the original thought!
