‘But don’t forget that memory is like salt: the right amount brings out the flavour in food, too much ruins it. If you live in the past all the time, you’ll find yourself with no present to remember.’ - Paulo Coelho [link]I get to go home after about three weeks of being away from civilization.
I was with Pa on the way, which was actually a good thing cause I never had to suffer from online life short term banning
(his laptop plus faaaast wifi at the hotel equals !@#$%) and meal-skipping-slash-diet
. I meet up with him in the City, which was an hour and a half trip away from where I currently stay and finally have lunch in his office. He lets me decide on whether to go home that day or the day after - and I choose to stay for a night with him. Just cause I've missed him that much.
Now, I am home, in my room
and it's 11:41 PM
in my clock. It's been about six months
since I got to sleep in my own room. Yes, my very own room and I had to wait that long to finally be with my bed again. I know how this place has become all dusty and old and boring and stuff, but somehow, I like how it is right now
- It reminds me of the days I wasn't there to keep it clean and fixed; it makes me feel proud how I've survived not getting to be in here for six months straight
, how I've grown so much that my toes would almost reach the tip of my bed. Six months is not very long, but it's enough.
[my room almost one year ago]
I find it amazing how six months was actually enough turning the OLD me into the me TODAY. And I feel so stupefied and hyped up about how I'm back in my room again, BLOGGING
. And I'll be doing this for two more days. Just like what I have been doing some seven months ago. So I'd better make every minute worthwhile, then.
That's a lot of pressure.
I downloaded The Alchemist eBook just now. I couldn't wait 'til Christmas eve for that Paulo Coelho set I've been wishing from Ma and Pa for Christmas. I want something to keep me busy. And nobody can ever keep me busy like how Paulo can
. Tonight, I'll be reading The Alchemist 'til my eyes surrender. Oh yes, I'm serious.
-30 DAY CHALLENGE-
DAY 22 - What makes you different from everyone else
My answer to this would be "Yet to be known." And I'll definitely let you know as soon as I find out what it is that makes me different from everyone else. Everybody is unique in their own way BLAAAAH BLAAAH. I know, I've heard that countless times. Right now, I just don't know what my own "WAY" is. Guess I'd have to ask sum peeps, eh? I mean, I really wouldn't know by myself, right?
