    Default Demotivated and depressed ...

    ...
    oh no. not me. I am fine.

    I've been looking high and low for a motivational calendar or a flip book kinda thing that you can place on the desk. I need to give it to a friend who's going through a bit of depression. Any ideas where I can get one ?

    Have checked out Times, Precious Thots, couple of bookshops in Suntec and even in Carrefour. I hate to go to Orchard Road through that mad traffic, but if someone knows for sure if they are available in Borders or Kino, I will head on down this evening. A bit urgent as I want it by Thursday.

    Any help is most appreciated. Thanks.

    PS : BTW, what do you call them ? When I enquired at the bookshops "do you have a motivational calendar ?" "inspirational quotations ?", I was met with blank stares as if I don't know what I am talking about
    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt....

    thanks for the idea DCA, but I am afraid my photos might add to the depression
    and from where can I come up with 365 quotations ? if I could do that I would've been a billionaire by now

    Here's one for you:

    A photo says a thousand words,
    A photographer likes to hear
    "Very nice!" a thousand times.

    thanks ZDragon. I will check out the Christian bookshops. I think there's one called Life Bookshop (or something similar).

    I've found similar stuff as what I've been looking for, on amazon.com and christianbook.com
    In a worst case scenario, I will order from amazon. The only problem is the time it would take for delivery...

    Sometimes to a depressed friend, it takes more than a calendar. I assume your friend is depress over matters?

    No. This life is too precious to give up so easily. I've experienced some miraculous results after drinking Paulaner Beer (what's this thing about Paula that's bothering me ).

    Will be glad to chill out with you if its gonna make a difference.

    thanks bro. nothing to do with heart matters. just low and disinterested with life. i know it takes much more than a calendar, but at least its a gentle reminder on a daily basis to look at the positives of life. i and my other friends will be spending our time regularly to help as well and involve in sports and outings etc.

    ok lah. i know i am not getting away from my responsibilities of being a friend by just giving a calendar. there's much more that needs to be done. but i or anybody else can't be with my friend 24 hours a day to keep saying all the positive things and watching out. if someone needs it, there are zillions of websites out there that churn out motivational quotes by the dozen every second. my calendar might not make a big difference. but the thought that asterix came all the way and gave me this gift would get the person to believe that there are friends out there who care.

    all i asked for was - where can i get a motivational calendar and you all are causing me so much grief
