This morning, the sun was blazing. It is either because I took the liberty of snoozing an additional 10min, since my boss is not around for these two days and I can afford to be just that teeny bit late, and the sun shines much more brightly with a mere 10min difference. But for the first time, I welcomed sunshine.
I have always hated the sun. I literally feel allergic to it. I get headache when it starts to get really sunny, it gives me pigmentation, dry skin, frowning eyes that lead to wrinkles, heat and sweat. Basically, I really want to avoid it and I even think that I be happy if its dark all day. I mean, sun sets > sun rise, moonlight > sunlight. It is logic #mylogic
But somehow, this morning, when Elvis Presley’s voice was streaming in my amazing earphones and I was holding to my comfort cup of ice latte on a TGIf morning in a comfy dress, the sun made it better.
And I think it translated to me looking better. Not better as in aesthetically better, but I think I looked as happy as I felt:
I think it is largely because of Elvis Presley’s voice.
“Wise men say
Only fools rush in
But I can’t help falling in love with you
Shall I stay?
Would it be a sin
If I can’t help falling in love with you?
Like a river flows
Surely to the sea
Darling, so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand,
Take my whole life, too
For I can’t help falling in love with you”
Another one of those songs that make me feel loved and in love just by the music alone. ❤
Heard this song in Blade Runner 2049 last night and naive me realised it is actually a song by Elvis Presley, lol. Started listening to it on Spotify and I couldn’t stop. Speaking of which, that movie is really baffling to me. =/ It felt like a… action art film. Even Ryan Gosling couldn’t make it enticing for me, which is a tragedy.
After I settled into my office seat
with Elvis Presley, I received a message from an ex-colleague. It followed on to a call, and 1.5hrs of sobs and misery. But she figured out what to do after we spoke. And again… wonderful day. 🙂 To be able to be there, to be able to assist her in whatever way I can, and most importantly, to be that someone of significance in her life that she turned to in times of need. The latter touched me more than anything else.
Now, time to be a productive employee and finish through Mission Impossible: Statistics by EOD.
Not forgetting a trip to have lunch at the hospital.
It’s gonna be an amazing day. (CHOY! Don’t jinx!! lol.)
