So, these past two days were awful. It was started on Monday (8/6) when my right eye got infection and it made me went to the eye hospital at 9pm! Then yesterday, all I did was laying on bed and most of the time, closing my eyes. It was hard to open my eyes and got out of my bed. I stayed at my boarding house and decided not to come home, because my sickness was contagious.
While I was in my bed, my thought was wandering around. Mostly, I was thinking about my family, what they did and how they were passing the day. Then, I also thought about my friends, those who had troubles and facing their giants at the moments. I also got many phone calls and sms. Some of them asked about my condition, some were calling to have simple chat, one of them talked about our internship and one phone call gave me a job in Australian fair next August. I guess being a lazy bump for a day did not make me unproductive (my self-defense). I also got food delivery from my Aunty. She always concerns about other people! Thanks to you …
My cousin called me yesterday and she talked about the moving world around us. How my old friend finally signed up on facebook and started to have chat around. She used to be my best friend and we had our time together. We were like triplets (with another girl) because nothing would separate us, what so ever. But then, she decided to get married with a stranger and left her hometown after meeting that guy for 3 months. Now, she is living in another island and never contacted me. I knew that she went home a few weeks ago, for she had photo studio shoots at my best friend’s studio. But she did not contact me at all, even though she was in town for almost 10 days. Well, I guess the world changed a lot since her wedding day. Now, she’s on Facebook, maybe I could ‘peek’ into her life and say Hello every now and then.
Another story came from my classmate. She wants to get married at her young age and she is going to have that dream comes true. We are all happy to hear this good news and at the same time, worry. We are not worrying about her capacity to be a good housewife, but my friend and I were worry about her condition. What she will be after she’s getting married. Well, maybe my friend and I were worrying too much on her. Or maybe my friend and I had previous experiences that drive us to who we are at the moments… But all I know, concern about other people, especially those who are close to you, is a good thing. As long as you don’t fit your shoes to their feet.
Anyway, this is all about my story of peeking out to the world from my bed. The world has changed a lot, in which we can keep in touch with the world, without a need to wake up from our bed.
