What to do on a holiday??

Listenin to: Keith Urban

It's a holiday, while some people are enjoying their long weekend, I am sitting here in front of my laptop writing this and listening to my Keith Urban collection. Anyway, boredom (but I do have a life don't worry) is in the atmosphere again so I might as well write something here, I usually call it.. blabbing.

Last night, I fell asleep in the living room watching TV
again - it usually happens I guess its the "coldness and darkness" in the living room that makes me always want to sleep there - well that's another story. I was suppose to sleep late today considering it is a holiday but I woke up 7:30AM and I could not get back to bed. There are three things I could choose to do today (which I have not really decided yet), one friend asked me to join her in this 3 hour conference for women, co-workers asked if I wanted to have lunch and watch a movie afterwards and my other close friends asked me if I wanted to play tennis and drink after (ironic hahaha but its fun).

So I am sitting here in my room 9:59AM in my computer clock and I have not decided what to do yet. This is the only free time I got this weekend since I have to go to my grad school classes tomorrow and probably volunteer for kids this coming Sunday. With so many things to choose from, I am undecided. I am receiving texts telling me to reply if I wanted to go or something like that but I really do not know. I guess I just have to wait for my randomness to kick in, take a shower, dress up and go where my feet take me..

On a serious note: 

 
I think we should be happy that we get situations like these. Sometimes we complain about being so busy, not being able to do something we've always wanted to do. We get tired of thinking we have so much to do, at work, at school or something we are busy with that limits us from doing fun things. We should appreciate these simple moments where we cannot decide what to do on a holiday because there was so many. It should fuel us on doing things.

The past days, I kinda realized that I have been complaining too much of not having enough "I and Me time" when I should not have been. There are 1,440 minutes in our day. Surely there should be time for you to do something that you want to do for your self. We just have to be wise about it.

So for those who are having a holiday. Enjoy every minute of it. And for those who are so busy give yourself at least 5 mins of your day to relax. It would work wonders.

School



Music: Mat Kearney

14 years of mandatory schooling (that is for those who are in my country, 16 for others or more) and you would think you have had enough of it. The teachers who seemingly did not want to move their buts to teach new things to their students and just resorted to letting us answer all the exercises in the book. Those annoying classmates you have had who think they were all that (or are all that if you are still in the process of finishing your education) whom you do not want to meet again. That undying crush, the young love, the challenges, your friends,best friends, things that you have loved in school, make everything okay and scratches everything about those teachers and your annoying classmates.

Whenever we have a bad day in school, we wish it to be over. Whenever we have the best, we wish to extend the day and live the moment. School life is all about moments (good or bad) and we have the last say which one is worth remembering and which is worth the drainage

14 years for me (grade, high school and university years) and there were a lot of things that I chose to flush and I chose to keep. Just when you thought you have had enough of school and that your wish to be in the real world, earning your own money, not asking permission anymore from anyone (except for boyfriends/girlfriends) going home late, having your own place, reality hits you. It's like a bucket of ice cold water splashed all over you. Grade school, you wanted to be in High School because you think the kids from there get all the freedom they could have. Then come high school, you are so happy on your first day because you feel like you can do everything but more school work is dumped to you. Bigger responsibilities,classmates who would hate, teachers that would drain all your energy, friends that make everything ok all packed into your high school life. Then you realized, you wanted to be in college so that you could do everything else you are not allowed to do in high school. Come university, you cant wait to graduate so that you could work and earn your money and when you do.. *splash* ice cold water in your face.

Most people would want to rush their way out of school. But come to think of it, we should not have had (for those who did). We should have let the moments linger. The real world is unpredictable. It could be cruel, it could be nice, it could be giving, and it could be not.

What I am saying, we should never take our school years for granted. For all we know, if you have not realized that now, it could be the best years of our lives.

Then of course, your longing for school would take you to graduate school. But that is a different story right there, graduate school is all about getting ahead of everyone. And that's a whole new story right there.
