I know who I want to be. I know how I want to be that person. The only problem seems to be in who I am.
This thought has been running through my head, as I make ambitious castles in the air. If only I could change everything I am, I can be everything I want to be 😀
1. They say age doesn’t shock you, it sneaks up on you slowly. I think it’s happening in my case. Freak injuries and random ailments are getting harder to brush off nonchalantly and definitely impossible to ignore. Last month, I had an ankle acquire a sprain I didn’t do anything to earn. In the latest news, I’m suffering a blocked ear of all things on God’s green earth! I am told it’s all those q-tips I have been using obsessively. Funny bit? My voice echoes in my head and makes me realize how stupid I am. Le sigh.
2. Work has been exciting and getting exciting-er. That is one thing I never thought I would say in this lifetime, but here it is.
3. House-help is on leave. Again. Most of my epiphanies have been happening washing dishes these days. Isn’t it amazing how little housework has been spoken of as The Great Leveler it is? Is it another patriarchal ploy, or just my own elitist thinking? I know people in many countries don’t have helpers for everyday work, but having always had easy access to it combined with most work being manual has made me so totally dependent on it that I feel sorry for myself. I know. That’s disgusting.
4. For the first time in my life, I have been recognized in real life off this blog. And very interestingly, too. About a few months back, I used to meet this girl from my building on my morning walks and we would smile at each other. She landed on my twitter page through the blog, where I have a picture of myself and wrote to me asking if I am who she thinks I am. I was so freaked out! So we’ve been reading our blogs a long time, and now we are neighbours! 🙂 Haven’t yet had the time to meet her but I will, soon. If she’s okay with it, will post her blog link here. I’m sure most of you have seen her around online as well.
More next time. I have a train to catch. LOLJK, just moarr dishes to do.
