It’s been a long long while since i last wrote something. After the new office was moved to district 7, during the long ride from home to work, i have always been thinking, which makes me never feel like the road is too long. I thought about lots of things, my career, my family, friends, love, random strangers i just met last night, or merely how good that chilli con carne i had last time at a mate’s house was. When will the almighty science get to the peak where human thoughts can automatically generate daily journals or blogs or vlogs? Now that might seem like an eerie yet enticing prospect. Speaking of science, i have started following quite a few interesting pages recommended by Kiên, and i love reading stuffs directly from facebook, it’s extremely convenient and also much more insightful than most of the craps i used to read before. In fact i have always been a fan of science, just not geeky enough to tell you the first 10 digits of the Pi number.
So finally i’m going back to Bangkok in 2 more weeks, and thankfully my dear friend Ray still lets me stay at his place for a month like last year, he’s the best! So people have the tendency to ask me “Why Thailand again?”. My response would be “Why not?”, because “the purpose of life is to putz around however you want“. In Bangkok, i can feel the freedom, i can feel the liveliness, the friendliness, the chaos, the troubles, another life, another culture, all of which makes me feel more alive. I’m fortunate enough to have been pampered all my life, by my loving family, too pampered and spoiled, too overprotected that i would feel too scared to fail or to be hurt. A change is something everyone needs to have, to keep on living a real life now and then, no matter big or small, you still need to do that different something. Besides, you can never get enough of Thailand, the excitement never died when i was in Bangkok, they must have put some ecstasy in the air there.
One of my targets in my series of changes is learning something new. It is true that you may find it hard to start learning something new when you’re busy with your current job. I keep delaying learning a new language, that is something i keep asking myself everyday, how can i find my love in a new language like French or Spanish like how i did with English? I probably told almost everyone how i got started with studying English, i’m just gonna write it down again anyway. I was singing gibberish to Britney Spears’ songs, and mom thought i might enjoy English, so she took me to an English center when i was 10. And all my life, i developed my English mainly on music and movies, it is easier to learn a language when you’re interested in its culture, not the TOEFL/IELTS score. And no, English clubs didn’t anything good for me so i rarely joined one, it’s pointless to have a bunch of vietnamese speaking english to each others, you barely improve. Back to the point of learning another language (i’m so good at procastinating, even when writing), yeah i need to be lovestruck by anything (or anyone). I want to learn it in the way i did with English, not just to know it, but to understand it and feel it. Where are you my Muse?
I certainly wanted to write a million words when i first started writing this entry, but my spontaneous writing always makes me end up writing less than what i was thinking. Until next time then. Now here’s a video of my current favorite bear.
