… when I’m just home and alone.
- Listen to good music the whole day.
Back in my college years, I would turn on our component as soon as I wake up, pump up the volume until it feels right – not to loud but not to soft either. My class starts at 2PM so I have all my morning on my own. That’s about 4-5 hours non-stop sound tripping. This is when I started to appreciate R n B music. My radio would always be turned to Wave 89.1 even on Wednesdays when they play music from the past. This is also the time when I knew almost every R n B music out there.
I miss those days when I can play music as loud as I want while I let my thoughts out. It was very seldom that I feel I was noisy then. I was that care-free before.
- General cleaning.
Yes, I used to clean our whole house on my own. It’s been a while since I did this even for the house where I and my family live now.
There are days when I think to myself that having a helper, who does things even those you don’t tell her to do, makes a person lazy. And when a person gets lazy, that person losses the opportunity to exercise at home and shed off unnecessary fats. Yep, I’m speaking for myself.
Apart from exercising, this also gives me the joy of finding buried treasures. I remember this is how I found where I stored my elementary friends’ letters. This is also how I found old photos and books that I have been looking for.
- Movie marathon.
I am no movie-goer. I don’t get to see movies on their screening dates. If I did, that probably happened around thrice a year. More often than not, I get to see movies I like watching on the silver screen only when someone asks me to go with them. I haven’t tried going to a movie house by myself.
That explains why I have several pirated DVDs with multiple movies. I know I should not be patronizing pirated. On days when I don’t have anything planned and all my siblings are nowhere, I watch these DVDs for hours until my eyes get tired or until I get bored.
- Sleep all day.
