We took an additional day off after the mandatory 2-day holiday. I believe in recharging ourselves from time to time and hope my staff appreciates it. SK is in school and YK will be going out with his friends later, so I plan to have a "Me" day. A day to do what I like.
So, after sending SK to school, doing laundry and walking Rusty (well, I still have to do my chores first even though it is a ME day!) I've got the radio turned on loud in my room and I'm bored. I start to check my emails, read blogs and the papers and think about what I else I should be doing today.
I want to change my life. I look at other people's social life and wonder if I should inject some life into mine. While I was backing up my old photos last night, I can't help but look back at the (digital) photos taken over the past 5 years. I was always actively doing something, from running and traveling to partying. More importantly, I was always grinning from ear to ear. I looked wholesome and jolly.
But lately, I do not have many photos. Even so, the recent photos mostly show me frowning, scowling or looking drained. Maybe these are candid shots but gee, I don't want to become a 'huang nian por" (sour-faced hag) so early in my life.
So, I'm thinking maybe I should do something interesting to rejuvenate myself again. Take up a new sport or join a club so I can meet more happy people.
For a start, I am looking forward to the meeting with best friend this afternoon. We're going to talk about our new project. That's a good start.
