Viola is out there... Somewhere nce upon a time, in a land not so far away, existed a violist who loved languages and wanted to travel. A lot. When I say a lot it REALLY means a LOT. So, she left the country a couple of times. Her last stopover is Dubai and soon she will fly away... ag

If today was your last day...

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES | Friday, 20 March 2009 | Views [944]

Given the fickle nature of life, I had been away from internet life and blogging for a while. Some days the inspiration to pour out my frustrations would bother me however that would not be enough to make me leave my small sanctuary near the sharjah border and move to the nearest wifi hotspot.

Yep, living in the fringes of Dubai sucks. Big time.

Anyway, whenever I was online, I had to make sure every second of online time would count.

It is starting to heat up again. The mild twenties from the last weeks went up to 37 celsius. I dread the heat of the summer that soon will be scorching the earth (and our heads) soon.

I haven´t decided yet what to do with my life. I´m still trying to figure out what exactly what I´m looking for.

I´ve met some amazing people during the tours of the last weeks. Some senators from Brazil, NFL footballers which I had no idea who they were until I googled their names, and a very elderly lady who was one of the first western people to set foot in China and see the city of Xian. She met the archeologists who actually found the warriors of Xian. That was in the year of 1977.

In this year my mom was trying to convince my father to get married to her.

Go figure it out.

Anyway, I give you all the lyrics from Nickelback which translate my spirit, as I'm doing my best to not have any regrets on this life.

My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each day's a gift and not a given right
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less traveled by
That first step you take is the longest stride

If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
If today was your last day

Against the grain should be a way of life
What's worth the prize is always worth the fight
Every second counts 'cause there's no second try
So live like you'll never live it twice
Don't take the free ride in your own life

If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce of memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you're dreamin' of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day

If today was your last day
Would you make your mark by mending a broken heart?
You know it's never too late to shoot for the stars
Regardless of who you are
So do whatever it takes
'Cause you can't rewind a moment in this life
Let nothin' stand in your way
Cause the hands of time are never on your side

If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?

Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce of memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you're dreamin' of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day
