#Day44 #100DaysofHappiness

Got up late this morning but still arrived early for Gpbb Magnificat practice. Singing in a big hall was so satisfying. The afternoon was well spent too; we drilled and played a few games of Frisbee. Thanks to those who came down to play. 🙂 Note to self: need to run faster to keep up with the offense.
Exhausted, my commute back home was filled with internal lamentations. This always happens on Saturday night. On the MRT, I recalled stories of people being asked “If you could go back to the past and alter your life from that point, would you?” and they would answer ” No, I am proud of the path I have threaded. I like who I have become and this is possible because the things I have gone through.” *sigh* if I were asked that question, I would answer: “sure there are TONs of times in my life I like to revert to.” well, I wouldn’t spill them here but really I wish a lot of things were different.
I didn’t want my day to end with pathetic thoughts so I need to distract my mind away. And then I spotted a lady sitting on a bench as I walked toward my HDB block. I never had the courage to speak with stranger but this time I mustered up and talked to her. 😀 I don’t really know how to strike a conversation, so I just asked “Are you waiting for someone?”. “No” she promptly answered.
“It was a very rare sight to see a person sitting here for a long time. Did you just return from work? (I forgot it is Saturday)”.
“Oh, I just returned from shopping and I carry a lot of stuff so I decided to rest a bit.”
And our conversation rolled. I found out we live in the same complex. She is a Vietnamese and just recently moved here. She was surprised to have a conversation with stranger here and said that it was her first time. I told her I am Indonesian and she went on saying that Singaporean wouldn’t have the time to stop and chat, looking at their walking pace. XD We talked about hobbies, her work, how she and I have interest beyond what we learned in university. And thanks to her, today ends with a smile. #Day44 #100DaysofHappiness
Of course, there is one BIG thing at the end of the day that brings happiness to me. It is the fact that my PKTB is now married to his lovely wife. Congratulations, David Giovanni! 😀 I am so happy for you! Have a blessed marriage~
