i have 25th and 26th December off. and I am working every other day. and when I am not working I have to get assignments done, which are now due by January 19th for 3 subjects.
my holiday will be in February, and a holiday it will be! altough, i want a holiday more than I need one. I want to go somewhere quiet, with no background noises – such as planes flying overhead, cars, dogs barking, trains, the continuous humming of the air-condition unit at work, loud ts-chuk ts-chuks from utes driving by, or gunshots – and of course no internet (surprise! I can do without), no mobile phone ringing, no lawn mower sounds at 7am). i don’t even want conversations, just sitting in silence and doing nothing, thinking nothing (empty mind is a good mind), preferably in a forest or by the beach. i want the natural scents like salty fresh smell of the ocean, and not the stinking fried stuff smell that finds me even from a few streets away, coming from the evil mcdonalds and hungryjacks and redrooster.
dogs never stop barking around here.
and those sounds at night which we thought were firecrackers were actually gunshots, apparently.
and i don’t want to drive with everyone gone mad because it’s christmas wha? i am failing to see the jollyness to it. people on the road driving erratic, people in the malls rude, rushing to the next shop, not caring if they have pushed you or shoved you or just simply being their stupid selves. everyone is in a hurry. why would anyone want to speed up the process of going to their graves?
you know what a relief it is when suddenly a source of noise is turned off or stopped for some reason, but you only then realise that the noise was actually annoying and you haven’t noticed it until it stopped? i want that sense of relief in the big picture called life.
i can’t wait for christmas to be over, then school holidays to be over, so i can go and have my holiday.
I am tired.
