In the past 5 years, I have met quite a few people who have changed my life. Whenever there was a crisis, I had different ways of handling it, from the advice and opinions of different people.

A day came, when there was no one beside me, just me alone. I didn't know what to do. I grew anxious, scared and confused. I approached the land line telephone and decided to call my sister when I thought, "My sister! No wait, she's busy with her college stuff. What do I do?"

I went online on Yahoo Messenger. Again, no one to ask. I was so confused! What do I do? Argh!

My Mom rang the door bell! I was relieved. I asked her and she said, "I don't know. You decide." Back to square one. Gah!

I took my Mom's phone, without her knowing and dialed Grandma's number. I asked her and she said, "It's just one tea spoon dear." Whew! I managed to make my first cup of coffee ever...and it was disgusting, but worth the try.
