"Someone told me long ago there’s a calm before the storm,
I know; it’s been comin’ for some time.
When it’s over, so they say,
it’ll rain a sunny day....
..I want to know, have you ever seen the rain
Comin’ down on a sunny day?"

Today i came home to a magazine article on my comp table about 'heart-sleep connection'
... i can guess who conveniently left it there ;p Hmms.. anyways i read it and i found out that apparently, i'm part of the 43% of women
these days who often get less than 5 continuous hours of sleep
at night, therefore, placing me at an 82% higher risk of having a heart attack
one day... *oops*
;p That sorta put me in a bit of a depressed mood until i read further on and found out that approx. 35% of women
sleep more than nine hours a day
and they have a 57% higher risk of having a heart failure
It seems that a mere 22%
of us women run a normal risk
of heart disease - encouraging
Made me think a little about how i'm living my life at the moment. Things like where i'm at now in my life, what i'm doing, what i want to do, when i plan to do it, what kind of person i am and what kind of person i hope to be, if i keep promising to do what i want tomorrow, will there be tomorrow ... just questions i suppose - not in a particularly morbid way either just in a sort of an 'i-wonder-what-everyone-will-be-like-at-our-20-year-high-school-reunion'
Life in a sense is like wildfire (n. - Lightning occurring without audible thunder)
- you might not always get what you expect.
Sometimes, that's not a particularly bad thing either.
*just thinking...* :)
