What’s my vacation mode? Sleep 9 hours per day, go to hair salon, manicure, pedicure, spa, shopping, gym, rambling, MUNCHING CONSTANTLY during the day and play with Star at night. But not everything is perfect, yesterday I had a minor “depression”, but only momentarily. Where it came from? Well, first of all boredom I guess. I did everything I wanted to do in term of “glowing” and didn’t know what else to do. Star has to work so I was by myself. I went out for some walking and shopping.. but nothing attracted me, I didn’t even bother to enter to the stores. Shopping bores me. I don’t know how I became so uninterested on shopping? Isn’t the case that every girl loves shopping? Well… aparently I don’t. Two possible explanations:
1) when you can have everything you want, you just lose interested on them. Humans tend to want what they can not have. It’s not that there’s nothing else in the world that I want… but I would say that I want most is not material anymore, material goods can not satisfy me anymore, they can not make me happier (note: happier, not happy).
2) I already have everything I want in life, so I don’t crave anything else.
Both explanations sound good, right? Am I exposing too much my happiness here???? I don’t mean to over-saying it to make you jealous…. I just think it’s good to write down our feelings when we’re happy. I used to write only when I’m sad or depressed and when I go back to my dairy, I can’t believe that there are only few happy moments in my life that were written down.
Back to my minor depression. As I was walking alone in the crowded street… I felt lonely. I didn’t feel that when I was traveling alone to NYC and Chicago. I know it’s because Buenos Aires is my home and Star is here, not having him close by even though he’s physically close made me miss him more. I went back home and watched TV alone and mad at myself (you’re supposed to be enjoying this, and instead, you’re feeling low!!! ) How to kick someone out of the low mode? Endorphin! That I did. I went to the gym for a Fight-Do class, which was sooooo fun and I was totally sweat after an hour! Revitalized and positive again! ^_^
What I’ve been munching??? Nothing exciting but what I love most about Buenos Aires: fresh baked bread!!! Yeah~~~ I think I’m eating 1-2 pounds of bread everyday!!! WAy too much!!! I know I know!!! It’s not good to have too much carbs, it’s fattening, it’s bad for the digestive sysmte, etc etc. You know what? WHATEVER!!! I don’t care!!! I just loveeeeee them!!! In <5 weeks, I won’t be able to eat them again! So, as long as I am here, I plan to keep munching on BREADS!!!
Few days more of this relaxing mode. I will go back to my working mode next week. My plan is to work during the day on research Monday to Friday and play with Star at night and weekends. Hope I can be as productive as my last visit in BA.
Question: When was the last time you throw all your healthy habits out of the window? And what’s your favorite thing to do on vacation?
