The weekend came and went.
From my point of view this was one of the best weekends I had in ages. I didn’t do anything special but I manage to do about everything I wanted and planned on doing.
Saturday was the laziest day I had in months. I woke up and cleaned my room, fed Marlanu’ (my cat) and the tiny turtle I was supposed to take care of, took a bath then left. And that was about all the physical effort I made all day.
We spent the weekend at some friends, since Johnny had to fix some computers.
I knew I would get bored so I was very much inspired to bring along my Watchmen comic book. I had this book since the beginning of the year and I never had the chance to read it. I saw the movie last December and I was really interested in reading the comic book.
We’ll it was a good thing that Johnny was really busy because it took me all Saturday to finish the book (starting from lunch till 10PM). Yup, I spent the entire Saturday reading a comic book. I know people might find this crazy but I just couldn’t let it down. It was better than the movie, things were a little bit clearer and I just didn’t want to let it go until the very end.
I don’t regret it. From my point of view I couldn’t have spent my time any better.
Another thing that I don’t regret was having my camera with me. These friends of Johnny had this great view and they were oblivious to it.
It was a bit of a shock but then again not everybody thinks like me, not everybody enjoys the same things that I do (aka the small things in life). I’ve uploaded all the pictures with their original resolution on our Gallery.
We spent the night over and I was really happy with that. The next day I woke up first (a habit I picked from work) and I got to enjoy the lovely view, the quietness of the neighborhood, the fresh coffee, heck even the cigarette had a different taste.
I had two full hours to myself while everyone was sleeping and I was just sitting in the kitchen thinking and it was then when I realized two things:
- I really wanted some paper and a pen to write down all my thoughts at that time.
- I was thinking that it would be nice if by writing on my blog I could learn to express myself in a better way and maybe, in a distant future, I could become a writer. It might sound silly, but I have so many things I would like to write down but I find it difficult. I don’t know if writing is a talent or something you learn but still it would be nice to be able to write down in a coherent way all my thoughts.
