not necessarily to fall in love with a person but with a coffee shop itself. It was almost weekend and i just had a whole hectic days, be it a plan of moving to a new place (hopefully it will call home) and at the same time my brain works faster and more productive than it used to be and it practically drains me out.

So I dragged my self out from the house, (literally, since all my stuffs scattered around and i should walk extra carefully between all the cardboards) and drove to the town aimlessly. I spotted one small coffeeshop, looks homy with a wooden furniture which is my favourite. I’ve fallen in love with this place in no time. The coffee is good, the price is reasonable, and oh how I love local coffee in a local coffeeshop. And the churros is grand. And because the place is quite small, I found my self talk like an old friend with the barista. Kudos for the small business in a small town. So this is how I spend my almost weekend.

Nothing so special about this year, it has been passed whether or not you prepared of what’s coming. This morning I happened to blog-walking to some blogs for a change (cause I have not been so active recently on my blog, so being a silent reader at some points really refreshing). I was fascinated by one, in her post she mentioned about “sort of” her resolutions for this year. She changed about 80% of her life style. Being an early riser and does exercises regularly for about 30-45 minutes after her iced coffee morning ritual. She also mentioned by making a change for her self, she feels that she is more productive than she used to be and less of her times wasted. Then I have my “moment of silent” after reading her post. Her certain post. I used to have resolutions some years of stone ago, be it very cheesy one until the very serious one (note down that I never had resolution to go on diet) I did try to keep my resolution the whole year, such as “sitting side by side with my best friend on a plane headed to Europe”. We did eventually, not so long from our resolution’s made. With a twist (of course), we did sit side by side (in a train though!) for our journey across the Netherlands – Germany. We didn’t go together at the same time to Europe, we had our chance differently, my best friend happened to have her scholarship for master degree in the Netherlands, while I got mine in Italy a year after her. Then I and (she too) checked our resolution’s list, and move on to another one. But, as time goes by, lots of those resolutions are not kept; let’s say I was busy, busy struggling my life in Europe, busy surviving and trying to finish my thesis. Busy keeping up my relationship with errrhh an Italian hottie after a German geek (both not worked though), and all of sudden all resolutions seemed not important.

Anyway, back to the blog-post I visited this morning, it struck me a bit, thinking how long have I live my life without any resolution nor any goals. How many times I have wasted. To analyze with whatever written in her blog post (though it’s not fair in one way or another), she was not a morning person who’s now becoming an early riser which start her day at 4:30 every f*cking morning, while me, I am a natural morning bird who wake up precisely at 4 or 4:30 in the morning, just because my biological clock tells my body to do so. And I drink my espresso religiously soon after I woke up. If I don’t have class in the morning (I have 3 classes in the morning in a week) surely I will be in my workout suit, to do some workout. I prefer to do it at home, cause it’s less time consuming, unless if I had a plan to swim, then I have to go to the sport center. After all those rituals, I start my day, check my appointment since I am in the middle of building a start-up with another best friend and do whatever in my schedule book. As a freelancer for this past 2 years, I am in and out of jobs in a flick of fingers. Which is I could be here in my city in the morning and in an aero plane / train heading to another city in the afternoon.

So here I am thinking, If changing life style at some points makes your life more effective not to mention productive, what about me who has been a natural morning person since your youngest siblings not even born, who has coffee ritual followed with a helluva of workout 5 times a week? (to brag a bit, I have lean muscles and nice ABS).

Should I do all the opposite to make a change?
