A few years ago, I was the opposite. I hated having a routine, I just wanted to do things more spontaneously. Nowadays, I find myself appreciating the daily grind. I like the fact that I just go to work, go home, sleep early, wake up early and repeat. Weekends are a bit more "fun" 'cause they're for going to gigs, meeting up with friends, drinking. But it's still part of the routine. It's comfy. And that's starting to scare me a bit. What if I turn into one of those people who stop living?
And who knew desk jobs would be so tiring? Everyday when I get home, I always try to remember what makes that particular day so tiring. Is it the commute? The having to sit down for 9 hours? Staring at the computer? I can't put my finger on it. The commute isn't that bad. In fact, this part of my daily routine is where I feel the most energized. I really don't know.
I guess I'm just starting to have some feelings of unrest again. Is it because this is the longest time I've spent on one single job? I dunno. I do appreciate the stable income though. A lot. And I don't want to let go of it just yet because Marc and I have PLANS. Big plans.
Well anyway to get to the point, what I really want right now is this:
I wish for at least one weekend of doing nothing but lie in bed, watch some movies, eat cheetos and drink tea.
Hmm, who am I to complain about having social activities in my life??? Haha. Don't get me wrong, I love seeing my friends and going out, but lately, I haven't found time to just sit back, relax and do the things I love doing on my own.
So let's see. I'm hoping this Sunday's the day!
What have I been up to lately? (in bad photos):
I've begun charting some options for my shawl-in-progress' border.
I've learned how to do the fishtail braid from the top of my head!
You can't see it here though. hoho
I've been working on that
And lamenting the striking change in color. Boo. Iz ugly.
It looks like mismatched lipstick against bad skin.
I bleached the lower half of my hair, hoping to create an awesome ombre look.
But ended up not bleaching it enough.
I'll work on it some more before Saturday, and hopefully get it to the shade I want it to be.
Wow, look at me, actually trying to be trendy. I noticed that about me lately... I think I'm becoming more and more concerned about how I look. A sudden bout of extreme vanity? Or just genuine care about my overall well-being? More on that in my next post... When I get to writing it.
