Alone Time

Nowadays, getting some alone time doesn't happen much. I have been enjoying myself so much with family around that I almost forgot how it feels to be alone again.

This long weekend, my family is going to Penang. My family, minus me. Why? Because they made the decision at the last minute and I have to work on Saturday. Besides, they are going there for the food and I have recently lost my sense of taste, no thanks to a horrible bout of flu.

So that means...the entire weekend on my own. At first I was disappointed because I was looking forward to the weekend with family. Then I thought about it some more and figured...this would actually be the first time I am really alone since I came back from Singapore! I have my own car, I could go anywhere I like, anytime I like, without having to wonder what the others are doing, or if they are planning to do anything. It would be JUST like life back in Singapore, except now I have the entire house for myself, and did I mention I have a car?!

Don't get me wrong. I don't yearn for the kind of life I lived in Singapore. I just think this is a chance for me to reflect on myself, on what has been going on for the past 3 months, and maybe what direction I want to take in the future. Maybe a little bit of shopping too.

This is actually gonna be quite cool.
