List of things I wonder about (100happydays – Day 12)

Hi all, so I started this blog and I just wanted to talk about what inspired me. 

I’ve been wanting to have a medium to sort my thoughts for while so last year on the 31st of December I decided to create one. The title of my blog was inspired by my cats and my personality trait of being curious. I can safely say that I am curious about everything but I guess everything is an exaggeration because it’s impossible to be curious about everything, hence I am selectively curious.

The following is a list of things I was curious about today:

  • A friend of mine was having some trouble with a guy she is interested in. They’ve already established that they like each other but it doesn’t seem to be going in any direction. I’m curious about what he’s thinking, his behaviour is odd and I’m curious if it’s all just a game to him. Most of all, I’m curious about how it will work out.
  • I’m curious about why places of worship always seem to have the best architecture. In some ways it almost appears to be some sort of propaganda to lure people into a religion. Don’t get me wrong, I have an endless amount of love for good architecture and maybe it’s just coincidence that such places are always beautiful.
  • I strongly believe in “what goes around comes around” and it makes me curious, what if you didn’t go around so you don’t come around? In other words, what if you only do good but you get bad things come your way. Feels like the balance of the universe is flawed and that’s thought provoking
  • I was curious about why some people were a part of my life briefly. There are certain people I was close to and we are no longer on speaking terms. It’s weird when that happens. They say that everything is a learning experience but what if there was no lesson to be learnt, then what’s the point? Pondered on this for sometime, trying to figure out if it’s worth it to reach out to those people and ask how things were, or if it’s better to let thing lay as they are
  • I watched “say yes to the dress” and I was curious about what type of dress I would decide on and


  •  I read somewhere that you can be a millionaire in 27 days if you start with $0.01 and double that amount daily. I did the math and I was surprised by the accuracy of the outcome. πŸ™‚

    I’ve also noticed that about religion; you can say what you like about it, but incredible monuments that have stood the test of time were all built because of religion, from the pyramids to the cathedrals to the mayan temples to stonehenge and on and on and on. Have you been to Sainte-Chapelle in Paris? Walking in there on a sunny day is the closest I’ve felt to spiritual in a building. It’s amazing. You just feel totally transported.

    Also, with regard to the people who used to be in your life, maybe write out a list of pros and cons. It depends on why they faded from your life. If it was just growing up getting in the way then I don’t think there’s any harm in reaching out!

      I didnt know about the Sainte Chapelle in Paris until today and I just saw photos πŸ˜€ it’s spectacular. I can almost relate to the feeling you were referring to. I feel that way in Sheikh Zayed mosque, it’s beautifully made, you should definitely come to Abu Dhabi to see it :D.
      Regarding the people who are no longer a part of my life. One that specifically has been on my mind, we had a falling out, no one at fault really, I just had enough so I thought it would be best to cut my losses and move on. I know I made the right decision but I can’t help but miss the time we had together and we had a lot in common. Having said that, no matter how much I may want to, I’m not sure if reaching out is a good idea :/

        That mosque looks spectacular! I visited the Jama Masjid when I was in India and it was incredible. Karnak Temple in Egypt as well gave me a total feeling of awe. I think it’s hard to find buildings/architecture that give you that feeling that AREN’T in some way tied to religion. I’ll have to put the Sheikh Zayed mosque on my Must See list!

        If the reasons you cut your losses still exist then I’m not sure reaching out is a good idea. I mean, you cut them off for a reason….

        Yes you must! And let me know when you’re visiting I can be your personal tour guide 😁😁.

        And yes I suppose the reasons still exist so you’re right, it’s best I let it lie and not reach out.

    Okay having thought about this some more I suppose that’s not entirely true – there are places like the Colosseum and Neuschwanstein Castle that are pretty amazing and don’t have religious reasons for existing… Human ego and religion then!

      Hahah yes! Ego does have a huge part to play in all kinds of architecture I think. It’s the architects way of being remembered by leaving a mark in the world
