Our office Garfield

I have a colleague who looks exactly like Garfield:

But that’s just as much as I’ll say… the similarities are indeed striking.

I think the reason why people love Garfield is because he doesn’t care and does whatever he wants.

But another reason why people love Garfield is because we’re jealous — he dares to do things what other people don’t dare to do because they’re afraid they may lose face, lose their jobs, or they’re just plain scared.

Frankly, I’m one of them.

Sometimes, I’m too sick of acting too much of a nice, goody-two shoes.

Sometimes, I wish I could take off days from work and don’t have a care in the world.

Sometimes, I wish I can be mean and sullen and intentionally piss people off.

Sometimes, I wish I can be rude, and just shrug it off.

But I can’t — it’s not my nature.

In a way, that’s why I wanted to have this blog, so that I can be as mean as I want, even if I don’t mean it. Through the blog, you can exaggerate things as much as you want. It’s private, it’s yours and nobody gets hurt because you are anonymous.

But fact remains is, you’re really not. Laugh all you want, but there are still people who can see and read your blog. And judge you for what you say, even if you don’t mean it.

I wish I can be like Garfield… and not have a care in the world.

I can bitch and moan all I want… and don’t care.

But I can’t.

In the end, I still strive for positive reinforcement. I like to be liked.

And that’s why, I am jealous of our office Garfield.

Because like him or hate him, he’s just being himself.

C’est La Vie.


About Tina

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!

    You should be careful who you write about, you never know who may read your blog.
