– an investigation of the human condition

Get up again & again…

Listening to: (It’s too late to) Apologize – One Republic

I don’t really know what to write today, apart from the realisation that life has its ups and downs and round & rounds.

For some, literal ups and downs – I watched a girl in her mid-20s try leap from one staircase down onto a walkway leading into the other direction yesterday at uni. Needless to say, the landing was horrible and I would have deducted at least 0.525 from her total score she lost her balance and tripped into a heap of chalk graffiti on the walkway, ruining her jeans. My initial reaction was one of shock as I asked if she was alright, but then the true challenge was containing my laughter. I wanted to offer her a tissue for her issue, but thought against it. Why didn’t she just walk around? It would’ve taken her about 20 seconds extra and saved her the embarassment.

Neways, that’s about it for now.

(U)ntil next time…. Stay Strong!

    It’s always hard not to try and laugh when someone stacks in front of you.

    Luckily she’s ok though.
