Documentaries

I missed wasting time! The weather is just perfect for staying in, and watching documentaries, making plans and just slacking around.

I am so happy I do not have to worry about getting things done, because I do not have the time. I have plenty of time to waste now, and I am going to waste it by doing things that I love. 

Yesterday it was stitching and finishing up a book. Today, it is watching Korean documentaries and, later, stitching and more reading. Happy happy, joy joy.

I am currently interesting in making a learning / studying plan for myself. I want to learn a new foreign language. It has been on my to do list for quite some years, but never managed to fully immerse myself in it. Lack of time, motivation and even the will to do so, have hindered all of my efforts. Then I remembered something, from long ago, from a random blog that I cannot seem to find. It was about a lady who went in Japan, and was struggling to learn the language. She enrolled herself in a weekend class, and was surprised that the classes lasted all day long. When she asked the teacher there why, she was told that the only way she could grasp the culture and learn the language, was by immersing herself in study and practicing the language as much as possible. 

Now, I do not think I will be enrolling in any course for foreign languages. Nor do we have after schools and libraries like the ones in the documentaries, but self study has always been my way to get through stuff.

 It does make a lot of sense, that if you want to learn something new you must dedicate yourself to it completely. 

Long story short, that is how I ended up watching a BBC documentary on YouTube about Korean schooling system. 

 

I don’t know about learning all day long, but I can surely pull 4-5 hours a day. I do have a lot of free time, where there is just me in the house. I am not going to count Pluto and Marlanu’, since they sleep all day long. 

I hope till the end of the day, I shall have a game plan. Until then, more research by watching documentaries. They are good for the soul. 

Monday morning

It is a rainy Monday morning. I am happy to say that we have no plans for today. We don’t even have to go to work. Of course, I am officially unemployed and Johnny is on Easter holiday.

We’ve had a great weekend.

We did nothing out of the ordinary, but it was awesome nonetheless. We went to the park, where Pluto finally conquered his fear of water.

This was possible with the help of a fellow Labrador. We were actually amazed that they got along so well, considering they were both males and not sterilized. In fact, it was the very first time they meet each other.

We went to the country side. We ate to our hearts content, and enjoyed the sunny weather. Considering that today it is raining and gloomy outside, I think we were lucky. I also got a lot of tulips and some common lilac from my mom. Tulips and lilac are my favorite flowers. 

Basically, we enjoyed a mellow weekend. It has been a long time since we had a weekend like this one. I cannot blame John, since he always had the weekends off. It was my who was working and couldn’t take the time off. 

That shouldn’t be a problem anymore. I am free as a bird, and I do not plan on making any steps in becoming employed again till the end of the month. I have missed being free of any obligation or responsibility. I have some free time and I am going to make the most of it. Even if it feels weird right now, not having to go to work or be stressed about stuff or people.

The only stress I can get now, is from Pluto and his never ending energy. 

Even if it is a gloomy Monday morning, it is a beautiful day to stay inside. I can read, clean, play with Pluto and many other things. I am going to enjoy each day at a time.
