Besides cleaning, watching movies, going to the country side and visiting family there’s nothing new to report.
My weekends are pretty slow and uneventful. I cannot complain about them since its too hot to do anything else. My only consolation is that Summer will end soon and Autumn will come. The weather will be nicer and my mood to be productive will come back. I haven’t stitched anything in the last two months, I barely finished a book or two, and my Japanese is going pretty slow.
But I am proud of me for taking pictures. I am using Instagram a bit more than I should but its a fun way to make my days better.
Tomorrow I am going back to driving school. That and university will start again.
I’ll have a full schedule again.
That sounds so nice. Being busy sounds really nice to me at the moment. I don’t know why, but I had this feeling for the last 2 weeks. It feels that I don’t do anything and I’m not getting anywhere. It’s a sad feeling, but I’m guessing I’m just restless.
Until then I shall enjoy taking pictures of Summer at the country side. The city life is a bit dull at the moment.
I recently finished reading “1984″ by George Orwell. This is one of those books that sticks to you for a while.
I’m usually a cheery person. There are always things that make my day. But this book just took all my energy away. I didn’t want to speak with anyone, I didn’t feel like going to work or even get out of the house.
I don’t always read books that affect me so much, but when I do they are usually books with a happy ending. This book wasn’t even sad, it was depressing.
So, I actually looked up “life changing books”, yes, 1984 is a life changing book. And this is what I found:
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Looking for Alaska by John Green
The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Life of Pi by Yann Martel
The Help by Kathryn McCarthy
Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse
Animal Farm by George Orwell
One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
Yup, more books! I almost finished my 50 books challenge for 2013, so I am thinking I should switch from easy books to something more stimulating. Meaning, I was thinking of taking a break from detective books and read something else.
But I think I will go with Eat, Pray and Love of The Help at the moment since I really need a boost of happy energy.
The Internet has gone crazy. SunMi will make a comeback, but not as a Wonder Girl.
I don’t know if I should feel happy or sad. I always imagined that SunMi will return to Wonder Girls after finishing her studies. But it seems they (JYP, the agency, SunMi) have different plans. It kinda made sense that she should return as a WG member. It made so much sense now since WG are doing solo promotions and SunYe is busy with her personal life (marriage, incoming baby).
Well, we won’t have the full package but at least we’ll see an old favorite.
The best part of this news is that we won’t have to wait long for it. It will all happen at the end of this month. Until then, here’s an oldie but goodie:
There are times when staying in seems like heaven and times when being out is just awesome.
This weekend we were outdoors people. We just went to the park, drove around, went to the country side and so on. The only time spent at home was early in the morning enjoying out coffee and late at night watching a movie or just preparing for bed.
We didn’t do much but it felt like a full day. It was fun and relaxing, away from any annoyance we might have in the city (traffic, annoying people and so on). That and we had the chance of playing with our new puppy from the country side.
She is really sweet and funny. She would make a great apartment dog since she’s small and house trained but she’s better of at the country side where she can run and do almost all she wants anytime she wants. That and we have two other dogs there so she’ll always have company.
