Searching the Internet about marine related courses made my head feel afloat. If I decide to take the course, it would take another four years of schooling. And my parents would probably say no. I should be working by now. But I want to study something I really love - something I can put my heart into. My love for the sea and anything related to it grows and grows inside of me everyday. It had grown to be a dream that needs to come true.
“To lose my heart to you with a poem and a trombone. I wish I didn’t have to control my heart. I could surrender, even if only for a weekend, this rain falling on my face would feel different. If love were easy, I would be embracing him now, and the words of his song would be our story.”—BY THE RIVER PIEDRA I SAT DOWN AND WEPT a novel by Paulo Coelho
I’m grateful I have enough time to browse the Internet. My sister on the other hand is busy reading her photocopied material for her quiz tomorrow. I don’t feel sorry for her - she’s lucky. In reading we learn a lot - reading and understanding. It is always a pleasure to read something new. The act itself excites the senses and some books can really deliver far more than excitement but a whole lot of different emotions. It’s creepy sometimes, but good. I would always smell a book, a newly opened book, because its scent is one of a kind. It’s like a motivation for a reader like me. I bought a book and it only took me three days to finish it cover to cover. So, I’m on to my next read. I got this idea from a magazine to read 20 books a year and I’m on my 5th. I hope I’ll have enough time and books to finish the challenge.
I woke up feeling a little nostalgic of the thoughts I had last night. The book that I’m reading somehow triggered these necessary, yes necessary, thoughts inside my head. Perhaps two more days without interruptions will suffice for me to finish this read.
Meanwhile, I wait for the clock to strike 10 in the evening. This will be the time of unison for me and the other half. The waiting in between made me a little productive in the world wide web as I gathered enough energy to edit and submit my resume to different agencies across the globe. But this does not mean everything will flow smoothly. I am not foreign to how online applicants are treated. Nevertheless, I am hopeful.
Roughly five hours left until 10pm and I am feeling a small fulfillment on my new blog layout. Everything looks clean and organized. I think I’ll stick with this layout for the moment.
My collection of sunnies throughout the years. It’s a wonder how they provide short-lived enjoyment. For some reason, they never fail to remind me to go to the beach as soon as my time and schedule permit. A calling, perhaps, to be used and abused for their intended purpose. Cheap thrills. :)
We know how to kill boredom. We have mastered the attack. We only need a ride to the lake, a camera and unlimited stories we share with one another. It’s our typical no-work-all-nature-afternoon that we enjoy to bits.
