I can’t believe that Easter is almost here! I’m loving forward to good food and spending time with family again is year. Easter is probably one of my favorite holidays if I had to choose one. Since high school and beyond I’ve never been too fond of holidays at all. You know how age just sucks the magic and wonderment out of things? Still, I am finding new things to look forward to about holidays as I get older like cooking and eating, watching the seasons change and sitting outside in the sun as it gets warmer. The holidays always take me by surprise now. I remember when I was little waiting weeks out for Christmas or even Easter and planning pool parties for my birthday every year. Now I usually don’t realize until mere days before holidays arrive.
What’s nice about living where I do at the moment is that I am freed from the responsibilities of celebrate holidays. Of course, I can’t wait to have my own house [or whatever] again so I can plan parties and cook for people for special occasions but it’s also nice to know that I don’t have to do much when occasions come up because it’s not my house. It’s so bittersweet living with another family. On one hand, you can’t do want you want all the time and you don’t have a place of your own, but on the other, you don’t have as much to care for; you end up splitting a lot of the house work, expenses and so on. So I go from feeling trapped to feeling really chill.
This morning I had much of the morning to myself and I got up unnaturally early for me. The night before (or morning) I couldn’t fall asleep! I was awake until 5am ish and I felt miserable by then. I did, however, end up sleeping from about 6am to 11am…But last night I was asleep by midnight and awake at 7am 0_0 I didn’t really want to be awake that early but I figured I’d make myself some coffee and stay up.
I’m a night person through and through, but I think this might become a habit for me. I was able to sit and drink my coffee, watching the sun come up with my kittens nearby and then check my e-mail and write this post. I also like watching flowers open in the morning. I find it fascinating that they close at night and open with the sun rise…I guess not all my childhood wonderment is gone.
Love these red tulips!
Time has been rushing by me so fast! I’m come into a lot of work now too, so I’m designing like crazy this week. Honestly, design is my favorite part of what I do. I feel that it’s the only thing I have in my life right now that really pushes my abilities to their limits. I can’t show what I’m working on though, it’s a secret…
My little sister turned 20 this month! (or threeish days ago Korean time, on the 28th). This is the first birthday she’s been so far from home but for the last two birthdays now I’ve missed her. Anyway, happy birthday to my brave little sister on the other side of the world! Even as I write this it’s already almost tomorrow there.
Oh, I almost forgot. I’ll be posting another Philly adventure soon.
