I cannot (and wouldn’t) count the number of times people tell me that I’m the happiest person they know. I am also told that I appear to have no problems and just look genuinely happy all the time. Sometimes I want to agree with them. Sometimes, I even think I’m the happiest person I know.

This weekend proved to be a challenge. I didn’t bring home Mac-Mac, my laptop, and I suddenly find myself more bored than usual. I haven’t realized how fully dependent I am on my laptop, especially when I am at home, until now. Last night, I went to bed earlier than my weekend bedtime. I am also constantly itching to go online. Good thing my sister went to Enchanted Kingdom today so I have her laptop all to myself.
It still feels different, though. I can’t do everything comfortably using my sister’s laptop since her touchpad’s much harder to control. My sister doesn’t have Photoshop installed so I can’t tweak my photos. At least I can download my movies since she has a bigger free memory here. Anyway, this weekend isn’t so bad either because I managed to get quite a few things done. I finished a book (Bob Ong’s Ang mga Kaibigan ni Mama Susan) and watched a movie from my father’s stash of pirated DVDs. I swear it usually takes me quite some time to finish either because the internet is such a great distraction.
On other news, I broke a mirror at Expressions yesterday. I had to pay for it, of course, which pisses me off. My sister gladly told anyone who would listen that I’ve been breaking stuff at stores for almost two decades. I haven’t grown up, have I?
