Waking up early to the gorgeous sunshine weather, I realized I haven't sit down for breakfast, coffee and the New York Times for a very long time. Despite having got up in the morning early frequently this year, I haven been consumed by appointments, deadlines, emails that I don't remember the last time I spend some time with myself to begin the day.
I have never thought of myself as a morning person, but apparently I am. I actually enjoy waking up early, taking my time to shower, putting on make-up extremely slowly, picking my outfit, matching accessories, organizing my bag, scheduling what I have to do during the day,etc. Being able to do all these things makes me happy. I know, happiness in such trivial things. I know I just got back from vacation, but the feeling of being able to take my time during a busy schedule is entirely different from knowing that you have all the time in the world to waste.
Of course, Jack Johnson is playing, and my favorite blogger is talking about pancakes and french toast.
I think, if I could ask for one wish right at this moment, my wish would be:
1. Have an evening off and do something enjoyable but relaxing. I have been all over the place and got sucked in with parties and social events every single weekend for the longest time ever. How I yearn for just a quiet evening. Maybe after going out for dinner, I can just grab a pint of ice cream, and a bunch of unhealthy snacks, snuggle under my blanket and enjoy a movie or two or read a novel until I fall asleep.
2. Wake up slow. I want to be able to wake up without the first thought of "What should I be doing today?". I just want to lay in bed for a while, doing nothing, listen to my morning play list. Breakfast in bed would be amazing. I suddenly have a craving for pancakes, or french toatsts, with tons of fresh fruits, and yogurt. I don't know what I want to do after that but to beable to start my morning that way would be more than enough.
Aiya, I feel like I have been wanting such simple things in life lately. Honestly though, it's the simple things in life that bring you happiness.
1 more exam, a few more things to do for Vagina Monologues, and maybe I will reward myself . Although, I can't help but think, wouldn't it be nice if I have someone to surprise me with such a wonderful plan? Now, that is a REAL wish to be asking for.
