First “Things I Love” for 2010! Here’s an explosion of shiny glittery goodness to start off the year :D
Brainstorming travel ideas: I’ve been playing around in my head places I’d like to visit at the end of this year if I pass the dreaded and challenging 4th year of Med. Think of this as a reward! It’s unfortunate that the part of the world I’d like to visit around Nov/Dec/Jan is cold, but we’ll see :) I’m so excited and 4th year hasn’t even started! :P
Celebrating New Years in quiet: I enjoyed spending NYE in the small coastal town of Merimbula. Strolling to the wharf approaching midnight and sitting on the old sea wood with legs dangled over the edge whilst watching the fireworks was the perfect way to welcome 2010. Opposite to the usual boom of city fireworks and then waking up the next morning in the same clothes stinking of alcohol and sweat. It was nice to just sit and reminisce the year that just passed and the one about to begin. I remember taking a deep breath as the last round of fireworks littered the night sky and the anticipating silence which followed when the fireworks ended.
The outdoors: The colours. The dirt on your hands. The air that fills the lungs. The brush of the wind across your cheek. The stars. All naturally made. Living in a man-made world, we forget where we originally come from and how small we really are. I saw the Milky Way on the way home from the road trip… I haven’t seen it for years.
Madame Brussels: Short stay tonight, however I shall be back to properly try the fruit punch and lemon sponge cupcakes while seated on the Alice in Wonderland inspired benches in the middle of a swimming pool :D
Going out for breakfast: I don’t do this often because I’m generally asleep and can’t be bothered, but I love it when I do. I have a wishlist of cafes and restaurants I’d like to dine at… all I need is money and a dining buddy! Leanne needs to find a breakfast/lunch/dinner date :P
Being treated like a lady: Chivalry is not dead! :D
Other lovelies: concocting ways to surprise friends/family on their Birthdays; hugs; writing lists; elephants; catching up with friends; ‘good luck’ messages; helpful SAs; laughing; feeling extremely lucky with what I have; Yoko Ono; compliments; toning my butt- lol! I don’t know whether I’m doing it right but it feels like it helps :P If not, at least my legs are getting a work out!; feeling healthy; my family and not knowing what day it is because everyday is a holiday – literally! :D
