Excited About

Monday, August 15, 2011

A friend said that life becomes boring if you don’t have anything to look forward to. And it does, indeed. Life’s dullness will be intolerable without these to be excited about:
  • The four-day long weekend at the end of the month. The government has declared August 29 and 30 as non-working holidays. This means that I can bum around with my family for four straight days. Hallelujah.
  • A bed-and-breakfast jaunt with girl friends in September. We rarely see each other and what little time we spend becomes truly precious.
  • Season 2 of The Walking Dead in October. This apocalyptic blood and gore zombie galore of a TV show got me hooked after watching its first episode. There is something captivating about its story line despite–or because—of its graphic portrayal that is not recommended for the faint of heart.
  • D’s longer visit
  • A short trip to Thailand, maybe. A return to the Chao Phraya river, our favorite hotel in Bangkok, Thai cuisine and lots of sun, sea and sand – it’s like going back to the things that induced my love for travel.
  • All the books that I plan to read for the rest of the year. A Free Life, The Mayor of Casterbridge, A Tale of Two Cities, Billy Bathgate, Lord Jim, Sentimental Education, Vanity Fair, The Princess of Cleves, Call it Sleep, The Woman in White, The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love… The list is endless.
  • A trek to the Himalayas, if the gods permit
