not only that i am still in the process mode but also the trying-to-rest and lazy mode. i stayed at home today and all i’ve done were eat, walk, do house chores and sleep. it was what i needed. i actually planned to walk to a coffee shop to read but i ended up staying in the room for the whole day. how lazy i could get!
anyway, tomorrow is loy kratong. and i must say…i am so not looking forward to it. in chiang-mai, the festival goes on for 3 days unlike bangkok. with loy kratong comes the fireworks…LOUD fireworks. sometimes i’d hear 10 shoots going all at once. i didn’t sleep well last year. the last night, the noise went on until 3 in the morning. but from what i’ve noticed this week, the police seemed to have a better control over the “disturbers of peace”. we’ll see how tomorrow will be as it is marked the 1st day of loy kratong.
the weather has been warmer this past week, which is a bit disappointing. but on a good side, many people who live in the hills don’t freeze to death. that is something to be thankful for. sometimes i am so selfish…thinking of myself when there is always another side i yet have to look into.
this past week, i had to deal with difficult people. i am not good at this. i was on the phone with this lady who seemed to be barking at me. when i hung up the phone, i just sat at my desk crying for 10 minutes. = = i wish i was like my mom or mai who are reasonable and logical; who don’t cry when people say something mean to them and who know just what to say during those circumstances. i wish people all over the world would be kind to one another all the time. but that’s not likely going to happen soon.
