At the end of the day, I wish to find more ways and less excuses.
Weekend after weekend and I spend most of it lying in bed with the laptop on my ab or a smart phone on my hand - doing exactly the same thing over and over again. Surf the net. Read feeds. Read news. Play a game. Watch a movie. Repeat.
I feel the need to go out more and live life. When I used to live down south, I always missed the metro for all the possible things that could be done here. And now that I’m here, it seems I haven’t done anything.
I just worry that at the end of my life-time, my number of sleeping hours would be more than my number hours awake. I don’t want that kind of life.
I consider myself a people-person. And I do tend to be talkative once I get into the zone. Problem is, I don’t have anyone to have an interesting discussion with. I think I’ve already saturated all the possible interesting topics with my housemates that discussing with them is no longer interesting and is already part of my routine.
I need to get out more. Meet more people. Learn from them. Put myself out in the open… But I don’t like going out without a purpose. It’s a waste of time, effort and energy. But if that is what it’ll take to live life, then maybe I should make a little more effort to get out there and try harder.
If only I knew where to start… ???
And so my life changes once again… Got news of my impending transfer, looks like it’ll be back to the metro for me.
Should I jump for joy or wallow in sorrow? I shall soon find out…
I think a handshake says a lot about a person. The way it is offered, the grip, the intensity of the grip, how long it lasts, the eye contact, the smile… all these becomes a foundation of a good meeting.
Thats just how I see it… so if you and I ever meet, let’s shake hands and see where it’ll lead us. ;-)
Finally found time to watch “THE HOBBIT”
Gandalf: Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? I don’t know. Perhaps because I am afraid, and he gives me courage.
And that’s just what I think I need right now…

Does that translate to being “friend-zoned”? LOL
Today i realized two things:
That i’m still capable of watching a movie at the cinema alone; and that i’m still capable of dining at a restaurant alone.
And although i would’ve wanted to share both experiences with another being, spending this day alone is in itself a step in finding myself… celebrating my independence… and realizing my individuality.
