Moving on

I ought to write a substantial update but as always, I'll put that off.

Fourth week of summer break and I'm not so thrilled about it. For one, the heat is really killing me. I can't wait to finally hit the beach next week. Then, there's the pile of work waiting for me to do, which I just can't start doing because of, again, the heat.

Mama left for Canada last Saturday and that sad, sad feeling that used to break my young heart whenever she was away came back, this time, cutting deeper. I miss her already. Then again, I'm really happy that she's starting anew and that's what really matters. I just feel lonely at the thought that I can't see her anytime I want to. Having coffee with Mama, smoking with her, shopping, talking about stuff--well,hmmm. I'll have to wait for a couple of years before we can get to those things again.

I intend to visit my brother and the rest of the family more frequently. I miss them, too.


P and I have been staying at home these days, with the occasional trips to the mall and to our families' houses. We've been having afternoon walks at the Ateneo, too. I need to lose all this flab really soon! Ang taba-taba ko na. Thing is, it's only my tummy that gets all the inches.

My summer's going quietly. Kung hindi lang sana sobra ang init, ok na talaga. I'm glad though that P's always with me. One of these days, we'll make our own homevideo entitled "Happy Together" haha. Thank God we are.


Summer Reading


1. Black Swan Green by David Mitchell
2. Enduring Love by Ian McEwan
3. Teacher Man by Frank McCourt
4. On Beauty by Zadie Smith
5. The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier

Next in line:

1. Art of Modern Education by Rudolf Steiner
2. In the Country of Last Things by Paul Auster
3. Brothers Karamasov by F. Dostoevsky (re-reading)
4. Wickett's Remedy by Myla Goldberg

Flipping through the pages, alternatingly:

1. Bagets ed. by Eugene Evasco and Carla Pacis
2. Negotiating with the Dead by Margaret Atwood
3. Teaching Reading in Middle School the author escapes me
4. Best Words, Best Order by Stephen Dobyns


I'm still searching for that "life-changing" book for summer. It's been a while since I've encountered such book. From The Teeth of Angels pa yata ni Jonathan Carroll yun...

Ian McEwan has that effect on me but he makes me impatient. David Mitchell started to be promising but it still wasn't it. Kung may nagbabasa pa nito, any suggestions? :)
