Goodbye 2006

It is New Year`s eve. Another year has passed. There are so many things that I wanted to do, but didn`t have time. Maybe next year will be better. Only two more courses left in my Masters program. Then, freedom. Feel like shouting. FREEDOM!

Thinking about what new things I would like to try. Fun things. Different things. Things that I have been interested in but haven`t gotten around to doing them. Guess lots of people are like that....wish they did this or that.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Merry Christmas

Many people buy presents and celebrate Christmas for the wrong reasons. Christmas is more than just exchanging gifts.

More Marriages

Weird. Lately, there has been a ton of my friends (friends who have been single for ages) who have gotten married. There is even one Japanese lady who is in her late fifties who got married for the first time. She never dated when she was younger. Her mother died when she was young and she had to take care of her father and younger brothers. Good for her. Maybe there is hope for me yet.

On the other hand, I kind of like my freedom. Once you get married, you become a team. You can't just make decisions by yourself and only think of yourself. I don't know if I would be a good compromiser. I have some definite ideas on things and my own routine.

Tarot Card

My result.

You are The Empress
Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.
The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.
The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

Decorations Galore

The decorations on Orchard are getting worse and worse. This year, there are some ugly Christmas fountain and tree things at some of the junctions. And those gold bird-like things hanging from the trees are horrid too. Tacky, tacky, and tacky.

What happened to good taste? Don't they know less is more?

Winter Clothes

I had to buy some winter clothes because I am going overseas for winter holidays. I actually bought a coat and two sweaters. Weird. Guess they can be used over and over, so it's not a waste of money.

But I did feel a bit silly buying a coat here. However, there is a ton of winter clothes in the stores right now. Coats, hats, scarves, and even leather gloves. Guess I am not the only one going someplace cold for winter.

Hope I don't freeze. Must try not to complain about being cold. To be honest, anything below 25 is cold for me now.
