So I was bored. And I started taking those “How well do you know XXX” quizzes on facebook. My score never went past 28% for anyone, 1 test was even 0% and there were 20 questions. It shocked me. I don’t think I know anyone at all, or rather, I no longer know anyone.

I heard an acquaintance (a primary school mate) is now really into gaming. To her question of “What would I do if I had only 1 day to live?”, I chose the option of “game all the way” without hesitation. The correct answer stunned me for a few seconds. It was “tidy my room”.

I was struck by my own superficiality. When we were in primary school, this acquaintance was the untidiest girl I have even known. Untidy bag, untidy table, untidy room, untidy uniform and untidy hair. Anything that had the potential to be tidy was being “untidied” by her. Naturally, she must have retained this “untidiness” even til today.

“What would I do if I had only 1 day to live?” Her answer led me to re-think my view towards life and myself. Why, of course. You would do something you have never done before. You would want to put something right. For untidy her, she would tidy her room during the last few hours of her life. Yet I chose the gaming option. How superficial of me, and frankly, how selfish.
