mind you, this is not a passive, mindless process.

i love analogies.
even the analogies that appear on the SAT's.
so here's one i thought of while lying in bed at 6am waiting for the bathroom to be unoccupied so i can go pee:
but first, an important prologue to help understand the analogy:
so i have a theory that laptop batteries lose life sooner and faster if u don't use the battery life to the fullest. for example, if u charge it to 100%, then let it drain to 50% and charge it again, and never let it go under 50%, then eventually the battery life will have become diminished due to its fractional use. On the other hand, if u use the laptop until 1% or even 0%, then you would have used all of its power and overtime, all of the battery's potential life would have been used so well that it will be at its full capacity over many many years of use. Hence, we have laptops that lose power normally and laptops that lose power faster than it once did when it was new.
now, the analogy:
your bladder is like a laptop battery. if you don't wait until your bladder is full to empty it, then overtime you will feel the need to pee when it's 3/4 full. similarly, if you don't let your laptop battery life to drain completely, then overtime it will have a smaller capacity of life.
i got into the habit of peeing when my bladder is only 1/2 full or 3/4 full. Now i have to pee ALL THE TIME. it's freakin' annoying. i wish i had let it be full 4/4 so that i would pee normally and not have to get up at 5am to go pee.
maybe we should all let our laptop batteries go until 0% so it doesn't have the same problem as my bladder does.
thanks for letting me share this.
i feel better now.

today i say no to the dress...
it's a good no.
the dress wasn't THE dress.
the moment u put it on, it's supposed to be like OMG, this is PERFECT.
this dress wasn't that.
