A Weekend by Myself

Monday, July 16, 2007

I spent quite a nice weekend all by myself, doing things I absolutely love doing.

First, book hunting. Since I’m about to finish Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast, I set out to hunt for good reads at the nearest Book Sale shop. I cannot believe my luck! Tucked inside one of the piles of books I found Toni Morrison’s Sula, for only seventy bucks. Believing that there must be another treasure hidden in those mountains of books, I continued my hunt. And voila! I unearthed a copy of Cormac McCarthy’s All the Pretty Horses for forty bucks. This solitary and serendipitous pursuit of browsing through books is really fun!

Two, being a couch potato. I spent most of the weekend watching a pirated DVD of the first season of Heroes. Quite intrigued with all the hype about the new television series and not really knowing what to expect, I sat down and started to watch the show. From the first chapter alone, I got hooked. I watched nonstop until Chapter 8. I had to convince myself that I had to quit before I finish all 24 chapters of Season One!

Three, doing the laundry, cross stitching, doing my nails and preparing my outfits for the week – pure therapy for me.

Four, working on my school paper. This is what balances out all the fun things I did during the weekend. Nothing beats the discipline, complete concentration and sense of utter fulfillment that go with writing.

Life is good.
