I wanted to murder my cat.
I usually love him.
But not yesterday.
Yesterday, the demonic creature that I share my room with decided it would be nice to knock over the glass of water I left on my windowsill…
Onto my BRAND. NEW. MacBook Air.
I was livid, to say the least.
My computer’s now being soaked in rice.
It’ll stay like that for a week.
And still, I’m pretty sure it’s fried.
So after a morning of pretty much cursing my cat’s existence, I later realized that it’s not worth being SO upset over.
Yes, it’s terrible. That thing cost me a fortune. But still, I’m pretty sure that monthly Botox injections to fix my frown lines are far more expensive than the replacement of said computer.
What I learned from this whole situation is the following:
It’s so easy to get upset about things!
God knows, if I got upset about every freaking failure I’ve ever had…from tripping over myself while standing in place to walking into a glass door…well, I’d be pissed off every day of my life because, well, I do stuff like that ALOT.
And you know what?
At work, you’re going to make mistakes too.
But you have a choice…
Either go crazy and flip out and cry
Be a normal human being and process the situation.
You know that saying… “It’s not worth crying over spilt milk”…
Well, in my case, it’s not worth crying over spilt water all over my beautiful brand new computer.
It happened already.
It’s in the past.
I can’t change it (although I totally wish I could).
But what CAN I do?
Learn from it.
Note to Kayla:
DON’T EVER LEAVE WATER IN YOUR ROOM OR ANYTHING ELSE THAT YOUR CAT CAN USE TO DESTROY STUFF THAT YOU REALLY LIKE.
But really, no matter how much of a perfectionist you are, sh*t’s going to happen.
So do your best to fix it. Do everything you can to make it better.
But after that, it’s done. It’s over.
Learn, move on, and in my case, don’t eat lunch for three months to save up money for a new computer.
Somehow, I’ll try to be nice to my cat again.
