Day 21 – Sadness

Of course throughout our existence, we feel some of the strongest and profound emotions. Sadness could be the most profound. Sadness is exposure to vulnerability.

I have much to say about sadness. I felt those moments of loss and the fleeting moments when everything slips away. Heartbreak can be a sadness we will all endure, a pure and fondest. There have been some deep moments in my life where the sadness generated has shaped me to who I am in this very moment. The loss of the right job, the right woman in my life, the separation of family; these are intimate fragments can bring  a manic teen into tears. In the shards and ashes, there is always a rebirth; rebuilding to something better than what you once had.

Disappointment is much like sadness, knowing something isn’t right and the result isn’t what your expected. It’s a humbling emotion because as you move to your later  years, everything numbs to where disappointment is hardly felt in a strong way. Well, that’s how it feels for me.

As hard as sadness and disappointment can put you down; remember, you are human. As a human, you can come back stronger and tougher than you started out. For where there is loss and sadness, there is something to fight for and gain.

See you on the other side, readers!

I’m never much of a Boxing Day kind of person. The one time I went to buy something on Boxing Day, the lines were very long and the stores were very crowded. Let me just say, for all the risks, the rewards are few.

The first and last time I ever went out on Boxing Day was back when I picked up my Blackberry Playbook, at the time it was half off because the company wasn’t making much of a profit of them. So I though it would be a good time to snag one at a very low price. So I went out of the 26th at five in the morning. At first walking along the darkened empty streets seemed eerie as a few passing cars come and go on a large avenue. Human silhouettes indistinguishable to the eye as I briskly paced myself on a December morning. As I approached the downtown  shopping centres, I could hear people talking as the bright lights of the square gleamed the pavement with everlasting light. Already I could make out a few rows of people standing outside stores.

The line to the store I had my eyes on spanned up the street and around the corner for another block length. As opening was upon me, people began to fill the stores; moving the line as they entered. By the time I was inside, it was packed and hot. Chaotic movements jolted me back and forth like a violent wave. I checked the time when I paid for my new tablet and found it was almost 8. Two hours of waiting and one to wade through the bodies to get something that was worth under 200. Though a bargain, it was still stressful and chaotic.

For though boxers of Boxing Day, good on you because you can do this every year to catch some deals. For those curious of cheap wares, heed a warning from me. Don’t buy anything from Boxing Day that you really want. Seriously, dedication for a small material object is not really worth the stress. If you are planning on buying something on Boxing Day, I would suggest finding something you would like to have but wouldn’t be disappointment when it’s out of stock. You can either choose the long early line or sleep in because no worries, right? It’s not like you really want it that bad. When you get there it would still be packed with other customers, just calmly walk through to what you want to buy and pick it up, go straight to the cashier and calmly walk out. And there you go, one item with less hassle and stress compared to what I went through.

This year with my gaming channel, I really wanted a new pair of headset and a new hard drive. Unfortunately, I couldn’t really muster for the challenge. After going through this once, I just couldn’t deal with electronics stores being packed with people. It’s not really much of a hardware upgrade, my hard drive is running low on space but I can manage. As well, my headset is kind of getting old and in a deteriorating state; but it’s not worth the $20 I could save on Boxing Day. Like many things in my life, I can wait. I can wait to find what I need and want because I’m fine with what I have now. I think that’s where I will end off the last blog post of 2014.

Until next time, see you on the other side!

 

P.S. I did buy one thing on Boxing Day. One pizza.
