Too Much, Too Late

Today started off with this: My alarm went off at exactly 4:20 a.m.

Good morning!
Good morning, I'm Late for Work!

I turned off the alarm and gave myself permission to sleep for 5 minutes more.

5:08 a.m. – My eyes flew open all to suddenly. By force of habit, I grabbed my mobile phone and checked the time. Crap. At this time, I should have been getting ready to leave the house. I shot up out of bed like you wouldn’t believe and made it to the bathroom in record time. I was lightning fast! I was faster than a speeding bullet! Ha! Take that, Superman!

5:21 a.m. – After taking The World’s Fastest Shower, I am in the passenger seat of our family car. My head is aching due to the ungodly way of getting out of bed. (It only means that I didn’t stretch out and lay there for a couple of seconds before sitting up and dragging my ass out of bed. Oh so slowly.)

6:06 a.m. – I clocked in the office. I am late! Hurrah! This 6 in the morning shift is proving me wrong. I can get late. I am not as invincible as I used to think.

And let me tell you, hurrying along the pavement while taking notice of the sun beginning to shoot out its rays on the not-so-dark-now sky felt weird. Usually, I come into the office when the sky is still dark and the sun has not yet screamed out at the world in its blazing glory.

Tangent: My mom has an iPhone 4S now. How unfair is that? She didn’t even want an iPhone 4S. Maybe I could wheedle her in scrounging around for long ago gaming consoles like the Family Computer or even an Atari. Or both. Tell her to stick with what technology she knows by heart and can use even with both her eyes shut. HAHA.

2012 Wishlist

Everyone has already whipped out their pens and papers (or for those who are not so old-fashioned, let me rephrase that: whipped out their tablets/PCs/mobile phones) and then jotted (Tweeted/posted in Facebook) down their Christmas wishlist. I never had a Christmas wishlist, whether in pen & paper or digital. Instead, I’ll have a 2012 Wishlist. The wishlist. At least I have 12 months, 365 days, 52 weeks… You guys! I have a whole year to make any of them come true! Perfect for someone as indifferent as I am about goals and plans!

Internet and all ye readers, I present thee my 2012 wishlist:

iphone 4S
A new toy to play with - an iphone 4S! *drool*

a) iphone 4S – Okay, okay. So I want this for a shallow reason: Instagram. Or Hipstamatic. Or Snapseed.

Dean Winchester/Jensen Ackles
Dean Winchester (real name: Jensen Ackles)

b) One of my most favorite shows, Supernatural, is on to its seventh season. And ever since I first laid eyes on Dean Winchester, it was love at first sight. The clouds parted and the angels sang a song so awesome lovely that it brought tears to my eyes. If I could see him in person, I would peel off all my shyness and actually ask for a picture with him. Because he is too sexy to not pose for a picture with him.

Travel
Pack your bags. Let's go somewhere and turn it into something else.

c) I want to travel. Wisely. I want to go to places and explore this vast, chaotic, wonderful, colorful world that I have the privilege to be born into. I want to indulge myself in something old and new at the same time, soaking in the culture/sub-culture and wrapping myself with it for a couple of days.

Write, write, write!
Write anything each day.

d) I want to write more. And actually complete a full fiction. I’ve been buying notebooks on impulses but never really paid attention to it after buying. But this 2012? This should be the year that I start something and end something, no excuses.

Chuck Bartowski
Adorably geeky. Charming. Funny.

e) And finally, this. A man who is, for the most part, like Chuck Bartowski. Adorably geeky (or at least can impart interesting things and converse with me about those things), charmingly needs to polish up a little on his self-confidence, a man who knows what “family” means, strong (not physically), sticks to his guns, dependable and reliable and funny.

Please take note that they are in random order. Whatever or whoever comes first in 2012, I shall welcome with open, loving arms.
