I always liked the number 4, but I grew up to love the number 5. This is because I realised that my life, like many others, runs in circles of five years. So having completed 9 of them already, I would claim that my age is 9! And yes, you read correctly. It is not the usual 21, it is the new concept of 9 that I am proposing!
Anyway, I planned so much for my day. But as plans always go, I ended up alone in a hotel room number 608. So to kill the time I started yesterday, on the eve of my birthday, to reflect on my personal achievements over the course of last year. As usual, I was not impressed, so I stopped this exercise altogether. Then out of my misery, an idea struck me like lightening, and I started hastily searching the internet for my chances of surviving next year instead. To my surprise other people studied this idea already. I actually found an interesting graph developed by Gompertz–Makeham in 1825. According to it I have 99% chance of being here next year. So in the light of this huge scientific discovery, I meditated and decided happily to postpone achieving my personal goals of being slimmer and fitter until next year or possibly the next circle of 5 years 🙂
On the note of procrastination at its best, I hope not, I will end up by wishing you all a happy day!
The graph is self explanatory. The cake on the other hand needs no explanation 🙂
