Things I've learned

In an effort to not have "wasted" days and keep track of my life education, I've decided to kep a daily log of "things I've learned", inspired by my favourite page in Esquire and a recent e-mail thread between some of my favourite people here...

So here are today's "Things I've Learned":

1. Watching a movie over and over is not time wasted; you notice new things each time and depending on when you watch it, it carries a different meaning. Unless you are watching Zoolander for the hundredth time and you are not a male model with limited brain capacity.

2. Sleeping early does not ensure that you wake up early. And each time you hit snooze, it gets easier to hit snooze.

3. You should not crave a tall non-fat vanilla latte on the day that you choose to wear a Starbucks-branded "I loved being a tourist in New York t-shirt" for the first time. Especially if you actually go to Starbucks. And going to an alternative coffee-place, although perhaps less geeky, is more potentially poisonous.

4. Phones are funny devices and will often screw you over when you need them to function the most.

5. ATM machines have a secret soul and mischievous sense of humour. Enough said.

6. Cab drivers in Dubai never have change. OR a solution when you tell them that you have no change.

7. No dream is often more satisfying than a sweet dream. Especially upon waking up and realising that it's Tuesday, 9:34am and morning. Not Saturday, 3:28pm and not morning.

8. Lunch is the most over-rated meal of the day. Unless you're at the Atlantis and can take a long nap with fishies staring at you from an aquarium right after.

9. Mental health is the most important health of all.

10. It's all about timing...
