At the End of May

An old cliché goes “Time flies”, but it's not enough to describe May 2011 that I'm about to finish experiencing in a couple of hours. Literally, it “dashed away” right before my eyes, leaving so much to look back on. I admit that I haven’t found the best possible way to spend the month of May if it ever exists. It’s not that I hate the pleasant as well as eventful month, but rather I feel as if I were under unnecessary pressure to have a wonderful, enjoyable, exciting month which is to bring Golden Week and my birthday. Didn’t I tell you that I'm a hard-core homebody? If I have consecutive days off as in Golden Week, I’ll celebrate the fact that I can secure an abundance of time to spend at home. Since this blogging thing has come into my life, I always cherish those moments to come up with a topic, brainstorm ideas, write a piece, elaborate it, revise it, upload an appropriate picture or video, and read my fresh-from-the-press post over and over. Do I sound narcissistic? Well... maybe, yes, kind of. But a positive side effect about being "narcissistic" is that scrutinizing my piece on the display often leads me to find grammatical errors and typos which I would miss otherwise. It feels so good to do something productive, however small, trivial, or personal it may be, as writing a blog post for one's own good. To me, blogging has become something like writing commas, semicolons, colons, and periods on a chronicle entitled "My Life".

Right after having indulged in blogging, tweeting, and English language learning to my heart's content, I had to face the harsh reality. Something truly unexpected kept happening regarding the new classes that I was supposed to start teaching from this May. The sequence of accidents, however, unexpectedly released me from the pressure to adapt myself into a new work environment. And May 11th. I’ll never ever forget the day and wistful regrets that I had to bear. And my birthday. It passed as if it were just another Sunday, and since then, I’ve been immersed in the teach-prepare-teach-prepare-teach-prepare cycle with no sign of break. But it’s just so weird that I’m not exhausted or weary while cutting back my sleep. Well, well, you don't need to let me know that I’m aging and needing less sleep than before. I’m the one who is the most aware of this sad truth! A joke aside... It’s too early to make any judgment at this point, but I do have the feeling that I’ve started living my own life, not someone else’s. It may sound cheesy, corny, and slushy to some, but after all those years, the sense that I’m living my self-chosen life keeps coming to me. It may have something to do with blogging that invites me to delve into what's on my mind and voice what I've found there. Am I rebuilding or rediscovering my identity? If so, I'd be happy to embrace refurbished or retrieved "me".


About Taurus
The characteristics of Taurus are solidity, practicality, extreme determination and strength of will - no one will ever drive them, but they will willingly and loyally follow a leader they trust. They are stable, balanced, conservative, good, law-abiding citizens and lovers of peace, possessing all the best qualities of the bourgeoisie. As they have a sense of material values and physical possessions, respect for property and a horror of falling into debt, they will do everything in their power to maintain the security of the status quo and be somewhat hostile to change. Mentally, the characteristics of Taurus are keen-witted (sarcastic) and practical more often than intellectual, but apt to become fixed in their opinions through their preference for following accepted and reliable patterns of experience. Taurus character is generally dependable, steadfast, prudent, just, firm and unshaken in the face of difficulties. Their vices arise from their virtues, going to extremes on occasion, such as sometimes being too slavish to the conventions they admire.
