A field of fragrant flowers is unforgiven by me at the offensive sight of a tiny fruit fly. A single stray note slaughters the sonic sweetness of the most sophisticated symphony. A night of noteworthy novelty means nothing if even one nuance goes neglected.

Sometimes I let the smallest things get under my skin.

Earlier in the week, I let something someone said get to me. My mom is an employee of NJ Transit, so I occasionally ride the bus to work for free, like this past Sunday. As I was catching up with the bus operator, a family friend, the topic of school came up as it usually does. When asking about my younger sister’s senior year of high school and impending undergraduate adventure, she expressed her strong suggestion for my sister to attend a state school to avoid making “the same mistake” I made. The same mistake.

One man’s mistake is another man’s destiny. The difference depends on one’s capacity to create solutions from perceived problems. It’s no secret that I’ve put myself in some situations that were more difficult than necessary, but I don’t believe them to be “mistakes”, because I am still here and I am still learning lessons. Everything happens for a reason as far as I am concerned, and as long as it is happening to me, I’m the only one who has the right to determine whether or not it is a mistake – whatever it is.

plugged in, again: gemini season [astroloco]

Is it me or does it seem like Taurus Season has lasted for 2 years? Not in a bad way. It just seems to be taking its sweeeeet time. Typical Taurus. I guess you really CAN’T rush The Bull.

Gemini laughs at Taurus’ slow stability, so if you’re in need of some excitement, get ready to party with The Twins. Although there are already 3 planets [Mercury, Venus, Jupiter] in this social sign, Gemini Season officially starts next week with a stimulating stellium [3 or more planets conjunct]. If you’re looking for a little more variety and novelty, look no further.

My MacBook started rejecting the adapter’s charge last week. It wouldn’t start and I had no clue why. Uncertainty makes me anxious in the most urgent way. I could’ve easily went to get it diagnosed the same day, which is what I usually do. Instead, I took it as a sign that I needed a break from the convenience(?) of having a laptop.

I lasted a whole week without my computer (although there are other desktop computers in my house), which is quite a feat for someone like me who is accustomed (addicted) to staring at a screen. I forced forced to find other ways to spend time – you know, like we used to do once upon a time. The week I spent without my computer has definitely affected my relationship with technology. How? I will see in the next few weeks. My ultimate goal is to reduce the hours I spend plugged in.

I picked up my MacBook from the Apple Store yesterday. I decided to ~splurge~ and upgrade to OS X Mountain Lion, which I wanted to do for a while. The difference isn’t that major, but The Twins appreciates even the slightest change of pace.

Gemini Season is all about staying connected, but being flexible enough not to get stuck in the muck of stagnating creature comforts. When a new episode begins to look like a rerun, it’s time to change the channel. Switch it up for the love of life!
