I feel like possibly the first 29 years of my life I was like a lone sailor in a small dinghy that just kept on taking in water until it finally capsized. In 2011 I feel like the dinghy righted itself and I've been scooping out the water with a little bucket. In short I really feel a bit like I'm now in a big balloon basket and I keep flying higher and higher the more and more little dead weights I drop down below into eternal nothingness^^!
So I've never really known what it's like to all be about ME (in practice, cos talk alone is cheap)...so since last week I started indulging my very favourite personal activities...I saw an arthouse film INCENDIES which was excellent, or felt extremely good probably cos I haven't had any access to any non mainstream culture for a good 4 months or so, was surprised at how much joy I derived from such a simple activity. Today I was sitting at my favourite ocean pool licking gelato...watching the HUGE waves pound two local lads and for some reason like a small child so easily amused I couldn't stop giggling even though I knew what was going to happen again and again...and it was quite addictive I was sitting there at least a half hour eyes glued...I just didn't get sick of them get up to standing to be hit by a pounding wave so hard that they either fell or had to dive in to prevent injury...this cycle repeated many many times...maybe I found it so funny because it reminded me of a three stooge or abbott&costello comedy like...they just don't learn!!! (and hence keep suffering physical hurt)...But actually, they were just having their version of FUN!
Oh well I got plenty of laughs, all in all another very enjoyable ME time indulgence :)
p.s I just had to dedicate this song to people my age in the city LOL, it's a great song!!! :)
