This side of the world, we got three extra days off of work because of some important nationwide event. However, I did not get invited to said event. (Which is a good thing, because I will probably walk into walls or bring up something either boring or reality-shattering. THERE IS NO IN-BETWEEN.)
This is how sleepy I was yesterday, when I went back to work: Oh God how I just wanted to crawl back to bed THE WHOLE TIME I WAS IN THE OFFICE. In fact, I was already thisclose to dozing off in front of my computer screen. I kid you not. I don’t know how I managed to talk my way through the morning meeting. In fact, don’t even know how I managed to function like a decent human being during work hours.
Enough blathering. I did say this was a very sporadic post, right? As promised in the title, here is a list of things that are totally random.
Frugality. Frugality is the key to make THE trip happen. Have you ever felt that pull, that tug of wanting to go somewhere? Outside here, I have only ever traveled in one country: Hongkong. We went there twice, but that was a long time ago. I was young. I didn’t have to worry about the cost of the trip, as my parents and grandfather shouldered everything. Now, for me to be able to travel outside the country, I need to get a couple of things done, as opposed to when I was younger (a lot younger — haha!) when I didn’t even have to lift a finger, except when I had to give my thumbprint on documents. *tee-hee!* Now, I need to be more conscious of my spending habits if I am serious enough to go through with this. And I need to process documents myself.
Maybe this restless feeling which accumulated all these years, coupled with having had enough of everything I’ve been through, finally gave me the
nudge push to make me feel determined enough to go, “Hell yes! Go somewhere! And not just somewhere. Go somewhere FAR.” And, well… Here I am. First quarter of a new year and I am dead set on keeping my eyes on the prize.
