Happy Birthday, mameou!
Twenty-two now! I almost forgot to blog about this, since I was home, away from the online world, for almost the entire month of October. My birthday wasn’t today, mind you. It was on October 23, the Thai national holiday Piyamaharas Day. As a kid I always thought I was special, because I was born on the day everybody had to take a day off for.
Anyhow, let me summarize my entire 21st year and give some projections for the year that is to come. (Sounds like some business review. =*=)
Hmm, guess what, I don’t exactly remember! It had been a year of change. I’m not so religious anymore, especially the last 4 months, after I met Luangphor Posri. I had worked hard at P&G as an intern during the summer. Before that, during the last semester of my junior year, my school work went smoothly I guess, because I don’t remember a single thing from it. As for friends and relationships, there was nothing striking, except for some dots here and there that made me realize that I’m a flirtaholic at heart. To sum up, my 21st year was:
Unlike my 20th year which was devoted to fulfilling religious goals and trying to escape pain, in my 21st year, I realized that there was nothing unearthly about the highly hailed Nirvana, but that it is nothing but twined in our everyday life. I guess you can say that my viewpoint has shifted such that Nirvana = Nothing. So my life has become Nothing as well.
As for the 23rd year projections, all I can say that they seem to be Nothing as well. God, I’ve living the life of a goldfish in a tank.
