I'm a Worm

If you haven't noticed, I do most of my posting on the weekends. That seems to be the only "Me" time that I can allot for myself specifically to be on the computer. 6 months ago "Me" time lasted until 4:30 PM every single weekday. Now it barely exists. Sigh.

It's been a week since I made my goal to make time for myself (is this all I ever talk about?). How has it been working out so far? Well I'm officially full time at work with my 40 hour work week. That means I sleep early every night. I'm not sure why, but my body tends to know when it wants to sleep to ensure a peaceful 8 hour sleep. I also have an extra hour to myself in the mornings between the time I drop Hubby off at work and wait for my own work to begin. While I always had that extra buffer time, I usually spent it taking a nap. Now I do more productive things like read and jot down my thoughts in my notebook.

After work has been the normal schedule. Come home, cook a meal (Hubby has been a super cooker lately), wash the dishes, clean up the kitchen, and relax in the living room. I've been slacking in my other duties such as sweeping, laundry, and misc. other house stuffs. What have I been doing instead? Reading. Yup, Yin is turning back into a book worm. I borrowed this book from the library...

Do these books make me into a crazy Asian American? Probably. I tend to drift towards American History and Asian American literature when it comes to book selections. Both books are highly recommended. Too bad I can't think or anyone who actually enjoys this kind of reading. Since I'll probably finish American Chinatown today, I'm thinking about going back to the library and borrowing this book...

In conclusion (I sound like an essay being written by a young teenager), I have found more time for myself. I'm not exactly crafting, blogging, editing photos, or even planning my wedding, but I've found something new. It's a nice change of pace. Thanks, Reading Rainbow for being the first to bring out the worm in me (haha.. that sounds weird).
