So guys, Blogtember is going on, hosted by a creative being called Jenni from Story of My Life.
When i first came across a similar thing, months ago, on Erika’s blog (Yes, I have mentioned Erika many times here and yes, I am kinda stalking her) I wanted to do join also. Now that it’s here, I am not sure I can. Yet. Not between doing overtime in the office, exploring the pits and pieces of the city (for the last time), flying home for the weekend and over leading you with my Australia trip stories. But yesterday’s question (or was it few days’ ago?) intrigued me: If you could take three months off from your current life and do anything in the world, what would you do?
I thought my answer would be to travel as most of the wanderlust’s out there. Heck, I have three days holiday coming in four months, and I have been bugging Hulk to book our plane ticket NOW, like right now Hulk! But when i asked this question to myself during my morning coffee, sitting at a place opposite my office, dreading every minute that was coming close to nine o’clock, the answer wasn’t to see the world, it was to go home. If I could take three months off of my current life, I want to sit at home every day for three months in my PJs (maybe fit two or three days holidays with Hulk in between) but mostly just stay inside my purple room and watch the rerun of The Simpsons.
I would wake up late. Have a favorite childhood breakfast, do some blogging, and TV watching. Maybe there would be a plan to meet up old friends or not. Maybe I would be watching a midday-midweek movie in the theater or go for a little shopping with my mom, even attend a gossipy family event. Or not. Maybe I would just take a nap and wake up just in time for tea. At my parents’ tea is served, sometimes with snacks, at 3 PM every day. There wouldn’t be manager’s voice, there wouldn’t be monthly deadline, there wouldn’t be an extra shot of coffee to fight lunch snooze. There would only be tea, sometimes with snacks, and more TV watching in the evening. Maybe marathon of ALIAS. I could relieve my travel memories watching it (did Sydney Bristow have ever been to Hong Kong? Because hey, now I have been there too!) and then do some more blogging.
Blogging is something I do that makes me happy and I wish I have more time for so yes, in that three virtual months, I would blog more and read your blogs and wish I had come up with some awesome posts that you wrote. All these would be done while secretly finishing my parents food stack, which was exactly what I did during something similar to summer break back in my college time. Which, at that time, I didn’t appreciate. I wanted to do more, to be more and mostly to travel (i had never been anywhere yet that time). Now, after more than five years of venturing and seeing a tiny fraction of the world, that is exactly what I wish to repeat if I can.
Maybe i should?
The world can wait. Greece can wait. I want to share a doughnut and a cup of ice chocolate with my mommy and later blog about it.
Thanks for reading you guys.
Ps. I am actually home now, sitting in purple room, while typing this. I flew down for the weekend to celebrate my birthday with the ones who made it happen. See you when I am one year older.
