Those Darn Meddlers…


Credit: Southern Living

I have a problem with people meddling into people’s lives. Isn’t there a saying – “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”? I think this applies to meddling as well. According to my personal experience and all those movies and TV shows I’ve watched over the year, I don’t think there’s ever been a scenario where meddling ended well. Yeah, I understand sometimes we want to wish others well but meddling often make matters worse.

My Current Dilemma


This prompt word for this week’s Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge is Divorce. For the past few weeks, I have been dealing with something that has something with my mom’s divorce from my step-dad. It’s been weighing on me and I’m hoping to talk to someone about this. Alas, there’s literally no one I can talk to in my real life about this.

Just need you to know…


Do you remember when I told you about getting bad luck in your zodiac year? Of course not, I don’t even remember. All I know is people tend to be unlucky in their zodiac year. Why am I telling you this? Because my bad luck surfaced. I was born in the year of the sheep and 2015 was the year of sheep and it will remain the year of the sheep until February 8, 2016 or Chinese New Year, 2016.

Anyway, I thought I would make it through the entire year without much bad luck then today, February 2, 2016, the worse of the worst luck appeared. 485392_419217044830488_1085899719_n

I was in my marketing class using my tablet to look up something on Google when the screen suddenly went black. At first, it scared me to death. What’s happening? Oh no, don’t die on me? Those were my initial thoughts.

I pressed the power button and it seemed to be starting back up. I was a little relieved until a few minutes later when I noticed the screen was stuck on the logo. In that instant, I could felt my hands trembling and heart threatening to jump out of my chest. I tried to be as calm as I could so my instructor wouldn’t notice. It was difficult but I think I succeeded.

I don’t handle these situations well. You can tell by my speech in this post that I’m still overwhelmed by the anxiety. I’m not sure if it will ever stop at least until I have my tablet back safe and sound and working properly again.

I had this tablet since February 13, 2013, ten days after I began blogging, by the way, it’s the third anniversary of this blog tomorrow. At first, I mostly just use it to play The Sims, check emails, and take notes for classes and then later, I began posting pictures to Instagram and so on. I loved this tablet, still do. It’s like a baby to me.

Last October, a week before my Chicago trip, I changed the battery so it will last more than 4 hours each charge. It was November when I noticed the clock on the tablet had stopped working. I mean, the time would not change until I turned off and turn on the tablet again.

I had a hunch that I should have reset the device to factory specification but I didn’t want to. Really, who wants to wipe everything and download them again? I sure don’t. I did that once with my 6-years-old laptop 4 years ago. It was not fun but then again, I think if I did that, then my bad luck might have been inverted today.

Anyway, after school, I immediately drove to work and had my genius tech friend diagnose the problem. He can fix just about everything electronic except TV, printers, and computers. After running several tests, he determined my darling tablet has a bad charge port and probably some software issue. A factory reset is currently on hold until the charge port comes in since the tablet must connect to the computer in order to reset. I told him I haven’t been able to do that for two years and I should’ve realized that I have a defective charge port. I just hope a factory reset will solve the problem.

I just got home moments ago after making sure my dear tablet is safe and sound at work but as I pulled my car into the garage, I suddenly realized how much I miss it already and just how many things I have grown dependent on it to do like editing pictures, playing Sudoku, posting to Instagram, and making phone calls. Therefore, over the next week or so, I may be slow at replying to your comments and I will not be able to post to my Instagram account. I just want you all to know. So please be patient.

Curse my bad luck!

Set Three Goals

However, I think I am taking this course now to help me grow this blog and it will give me a chance to learn about more ways to beautify this blog.  Continue reading “Set Three Goals”
