Rambling

I wish I can blog without wondering if what I write makes sense.

I'm just a person living her life. Some days I feel like writing, others not really. Given the chance, I'd like to write away. I have no aspirations of writing The Novel or The Book. I want to write, that's all.

I don't pretend to know everything because I know that I don't know everything. I know some things, of course. I get a kick out of admitting things I don't know. In my mind, it only shows how much I'm willing to learn because I can still admit what I don't know. I love asking questions.

I enjoy meeting new people, getting to know them, organizing them into groups and then starting the process all over again. I'm still in touch with friends from way back first grade. I'm still in touch with friends from high school, university days, 1st/2nd/3rd/4th jobs. So you see, I'm not bad with keeping in touch. Of course, by keeping in touch, I don't mean calling them up or e-mailing them everyday. I'd be quiet for a month or two, then call or e-mail them. These friends are the sort who do not require contact everyday. I'm the same way. But boy, when I talk to them, we really talk.

I'd really prefer to go off and see new places. Cities or small towns, it doesn't matter to me. I want to see other places because it makes me realize that there's a big world out there with a lot of people to meet. I wish I have more than ten vacation days. I used to have 2.5 days per month where I used to work, but that's no more. Now I view long weekends as something I have to use and take advantage of, what with the few number of vacation days.

I'm a middle child, the third out of four girls. I've always loved being a middle child. Not a lot of pressure there, unlike being the eldest or the youngest. I grew up merrily, got into trouble every now and then, and lived to tell the tale. I wanted a brother for quite sometime, so I have a substitute big brother and a substitute little brother.

Food is also a big thing to me. I love food. Especially Korean, Indian, Japanese, Malaysian, Thai. Used to be a big fan of Italian food. I don't understand why some people view food as a bad thing, as an enemy. Food serves to nourish you. It's up to you if you eat too much or too less of it. Don't go accusing food as your enemy. It's neutral, after all.

Fridays, I love. I'm trying to work, even if a part of me just wants to leave the office to enjoy the nice day outside.
