I ain't no Spring Chicken!

In this year 2009, it has really struck me how I'm just not like the young chick I was 10 years ago...suddenly, I tire so easily! I look at my 24 year old friend - seemingly not SO MUCH younger than me- who goes out 4 nights in a row, 6 nights a week, week in week out, works, boozes big time and smokes...and still has energy to spare...meanwhile I go out for a tame one week to celebrate my new found freedom and I spend the next 1.5 weeks recovering totally sick!

I can feel this Hermit really retreating into a new stage of life...perhaps all that youthful restlessness has gone and I no longer want or can handle so much "exciting" external noise anymore...I'm pretty content to just do my own thing at home...cos even on holidays, there never seems to be enough time!!! So probably I am doing too much and need to simplify and minimalise a bit more...

Somehow I think it is so much easier to do when my environment isn't so noisy and bustling...I'm so hanging out for getting outta the city permanently...day in, day out, I am dreaming of The Simple Life...it will be great to be able to "Just Be" without feeling that I have to be doing something, constantly :p

I know what you mean. Two pool parties in one weekend and honestly, it's Wednesday and my legs still feel like jello. I so wish I could just sleep for a couple of days!
