so the final lost episode right? i mean it was…confusing…and brilliant…and oh my gosh, what a way to go out.
uhm…oh wait, i didn’t watch it. i don’t actually watch lost…i think i did catch a bit of season 1 and i thought that was pretty good, but haven’t really gotten into it.
anyway, that’s not what this post is really about. it is more about the fact that i’ve lost my passport. i have no idea where it is. i need it to get to namibia in a few weeks for namrock…so much sadness.
but to be truly honest, i’m not as amped for namibia as i was last year or the year before. with that said, i don’t know if getting a new passport is worth it. if i’m not amped about namrock, should i be wasting my time and money by going? i mean i’m pretty sure it would not be a waste, it would be awesome and i’d meet with God and stuff but still…i don’t know. i’m just in a weird mood. i find it weird that i’m not amped about NamRock.
my system to remember where things are is failing me…eek!
i lose things a lot. when i was a kid i used to come home from school without shoes sometimes because i’d taken them off while playing during recess and then forgot them on the playground afterwards. i don’t know how you go back to class without realising that you are missing shoes but it happened.
i haven’t really lost things in a while. maybe misplaced things and them found them again a few days/weeks/months later in my room burried under other stuff but not really lost. on sunday however i lost my bank card. i’m hoping that it is also burried somewhere in my room, but i don’t know if i wanna take chances with that one so i think i’m just gonna go ahead and cancel it and get a new one.
the funny thing about losing my card though is i realise how much we take things like atm’s for granted. i haven’t had to go inside the bank to withdraw money since…i can’t even remember. i was sitting there yesterday morning thinking “oh crap, i have no food and no money and no card, what am i going to do?” it literally took me hours to realise that i could just go inside the bank to make a withdrawal. crazy.
anyway, so on the topic of stewardship: losing things is definitely not being a good steward. i think i need to be more careful with my things. one way i’ve been trying to rectify this habit of losing things is by having absolute places where things belong. like when i get home in the evenings, i make sure i always keep my key in the lock of my room, that way i always know where it is. my phone is either always in my backpack or on my desk at work, otherwise i might leave it wherever i put it down. usually i always put my card in it’s designated space in my wallet right after i use it, but this time i didn’t take my wallet with to the atm so after using the card i think i just tossed it into my hand bag and i’m thinking it fell out at some point in the evening. hopefully, it fell out in my room and i’m just worrying about nothing.
but yea, if nothing else, this is a good lesson in stewardship and taking care of your belongings.
