Whew. So the busy tax season at work is done, and luckily I had today (mostly) off with tomorrow off as well. 4-day weekend FTW.
Earlier today when I was thinking about what I would do during this brief burst of freedom, I was like “oh man I’m totally going to stay up all night and play some video games, watch TV, eat junk food, it will be like I’m in college again YEAH.” Yet here I am, sitting at my computer just after midnight, and half-dozing off. This isn’t just a rare occurrence. I can’t stay up late anymore, even when I want to.
It’s not old age kicking in just yet, right? I mean sure I am getting older, (I do forget how old I am usually though) but that can’t be it. It’s because I’m so used to waking up every morning at the same time for work, right? And thus going to bed around the same time every night? But I had to wake up a lot earlier when I was working in Shinjuku and I’m pretty sure I stayed up later and went out more back then. Hmmm. I don’t actually know where I was going with this, and as I mentioned I am struggling to keep the drool off the keyboard, so I guess this will be the end of this post.
Travel will be happening this summer. I’m going to Vegas for sure next month, then later in the summer I hope to visit Boston and probably New York on the same trip. Dunno where else. I’d like to go to Japan sometime, although realistically that won’t be until sometime in the fall or next year, especially since I kind of want the place to quit rumbling until I visit again.
Either way, this old codger is heading to bed. I will play video games tomorrow maybe. Or do some other kind of slacking off, I hope.
