No correction taken sir/ma'am
No correction ever taken sir/ma'am
that is the summary of life
no human ever want's to be wrong
but are we not destined to make mistakes
especially since we are mortals.
So why is it that every time we say we
do not like something hence, we don't want it to
repeat itself- it sounds like a hateful
comment. Ben is angry that Betsy is angry
or that she did not take the news as expected.
And because of that takes it upon himself,
that it is his fault that she is unhappy, and thinks
of ways to have composed himself differently.
But Betsy thinks the composition was great. She
is glad that he told her even though the news
ruined her evening. However, it is what
happened that upset Betsy, it is that, that
prompted her to write. Ben needs to accept
that the mistake has been made, and agree that
it will not repeat itself. But instead of saying I will
be careful next time, there is an argument first
and then afterwards he accuses her of saying
something wrong -it is the way you said it.
Why can't it be? I did not expect it to
be this hurtful and it will not repeat itself.
Why not save each other some trouble and
be happy. But instead he says Betsy you are
always mad for too long ...
Little things always upset you...
Ben maybe telling the truth but is it appropriate to
say such things to Betsy not that she hurts. Is it
appropriate to say things that make situations
worst. The interesting thing is we all have our
own faults. Betsy hates to also be corrected
but the one she does't do is when one tells her
something annoyed or hurt their feelings
She hates to dwell on it for the sake of defending
herself. In fact she doesn't even need to say it
twice that she will do her best for it not to
happen again or else she forgets.

I have been stressed, so stressed that acne has taken over my face. I found that acne corresponds to when I am stressed. Today has been painful but I am done crying. I am disappointed but it is not the first disappointment in my life nor the last one that I will ever encounter. However, it is hard not to be disappointed. Let us leave it at that- for the memory of my thought will never leave me.
Anyways, on another note, I have two more days of school left, I have packing to do-need to move. I am yet to find someone to sublet my house, graduation is right around the corner, there are too many expenses to be made and future plans to think about. From school to residency, the stress of a human (me) training to be a doctor and a doctor (me) training to be human. The stress of being a wife, a sister, a daughter, an in-law, a friend...I need a break. Maybe all of these is happening for a reason- like maybe in a way God is trying to tell me that I haven't earned that break. I await and long for the day that I will earn that rest, maybe the paradise I will get to enjoy will be the eternal one. The one I live every day so that some day it will be a dream come true.
A memorable weekend for both Families. Amaka graduated from her Doctor of Pharmacy and Jude graduated from his Masters in Aeronautical Space Engineer. Jude had completed his degree and received his diploma a year ago but missed last year's graduation. I am proud of the two of them and I cooked and danced all weekend. They both went through a lot and they both deserved it.
