I enjoy going for walks here.The whole lane is bordered by Mayflower trees on both sides. When its spring and all the flowers start blooming the place gets filled with butterflies. It’s also a short cut to reach the nearest mall so I go through here all the time.The ones which I took photos of are not that big. They were planted just a couple of years ago. There are bigger ones on the other streets but couldn’t get a good photo of them.
I just spent seven days finding out the answer to that and even more time finding things to do to solve that!! 🙂 (If you wish to read about the last few days then go here).
Having too much time and too little to do is number one on my list. 24 hours seem longer than a lifetime if there isn’t anything that you could do. Okay, so I guess 8 of that 24 can go to sleeping and 3 or so for other stuff like bath, cooking, cleaning, eating,etc, that still leaves 13 hours for going over the question what-should-I-do -now!! I found my solution in books,movies and TV.I don’t even want to think what would happen if they weren’t there. Going out should also be there on the solution list I guess. If I ever get stuck alone on an island or something I wont last more than a week!
Other things that I find boring:
Long speeches. No matter how interesting the topic was at the start it will turn into something not worth listening too if they carry it on and on.
Most of the so-called romantic movies. I say most because some movies are totally worth watching even if they follow the same theme as the others.
People who believe that the universe revolves around them.
Lame advertisements. Mainly its the videos that I find boring and stupid, the billboards don’t bother me. Again there are exceptions, there are some really awesome advertisements. Though after watching the same 20, 50,100 times they become just as annoying as the others,
I finally got my computer back after repairs yesterday. My computer is really old, friends of my pc were probably used by cavemen, it’s that old. From the past one year it’s starting show the signs that it’s time to get rid of it. Here’s a short list of problems I’ve had – the speakers failed, had to change some battery or something, the screen switches to yellow color once in a while(shake the monitor and the color comes back to normal), I had to change the keyboard and the mouse.
The repair guy said something went wrong with the wires along with that he suggested a lot of things I could do to get it to work better. I said no thank you because it would be much easier to just buy a new one.
Spending seven days without a computer is awful!! So how did I spend my time ? Here’s how-
Finished the book “The Collector’s” by David Baldacci and about half of “Angel’s flight” by Micheal Connelly.
Saw some movies – Hangover 3, Breakfast club and 2 Indian movies.
Found some good photos from National Geographic magazine and sketched them.
And spent a lot more time in front of the TV than I usually do.
Going out was not really an option because of the torrential rains.For now all problems are solved so its time for me to blog again. 🙂
My computer seems to be in a bad mood and is refusing to work properly despite my begging and threatening so I wont be able to post regularly nor read your posts for a week or so. Should be able to get it repaired by that time and will be back to blogging.
It’s been raining continuously for the past two days. By today evening it looked like it had slowed down a little. This is what the sky looked for a short time in the evening before the dark grey clouds rolled down and the rain started again.
Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable. -- Bruce Lee
