how do you like mondays?

May 26, 2008

How do you like Mondays?  If you are happy and feel good about it, we’d love to hear from you and share with us your happiness.  Meanwhile, I believe some of us would feel tired getting up for work or school Monday morning, even though the weather is wonderful.  So people suffer the Monday blues, Monday sickness, however you call it.

To some people, work isn’t too much fun, so starting the first day of work week after a lazy weekend wouldn’t that great.  Once you get into the rhythm, your mind and body is back to the routine and your memory of the relaxing weekend starts fading out.  So why can’t good time last longer?  why can’t we have a weekend continuum and feel good about Mondays then…

Since there isn’t really good medicine to cure this in a healthy way, timmi jr. will take on the challenge and go on the quest of beating away the Monday blues in a fun and creative way and make mondays happy days.

“no where in particular”

January 2, 2008

I was in SF and wandering around.  There wasn’t a particular place I had in mind – neither a set itinerary nor goal.  I saw a stop for the famous cable car.  Without thinking too much, I just joined the line, luckily a short one.  The cable car took me to Fisherman Wharf, and I saw this open roof street car.  I thought to myself, that was pretty cool.  Without knowing exactly where it’s going, I hopped on.  The driver asked me where I was going.  I told him nowhere in particular.  It’s true, I just thought I could just take the same street car back to where it started.  After all, sometimes a good way to see the city is by local transportations.  The street car passed by some interesting places and some not so interesting ones.  Then it ended in the famous “rainbow” district – I didn’t get off since I wasn’t really interested in the “scene”.   There goes the journey…


Not having an itinerary is a bit unlike me.   In the past, I would try to be efficient / disciplined.  I would read travel books, plan for  the trip and places to visit.  These days, I would get on the plane, read the book causally to find out about the area I’d be staying.  Afterward, I would wander around and hope for surprises.  This time, taking it to the extreme, I didn’t book a hotel and arrived at the airport 15 mins before the original departure, yet i managed to get on the plane.  Then, there was a little pleasant surprise – the other two seats were empty, I got to keep the whole row of three seats to myself. 


So…..  what’s so interesting about this.. well, here is one: the moniker or the sign of the street car is “NOWHERE IN PARTICULAR” – see the pic.  I didn’t see that until after a while as it’s cruising along… 


ironically,  life in the past year was somewhat like that.  Perhaps I got stuck with some of the things in the past and didn’t even realize that.  Perhaps it’s better to just let go and move on to start a new journey.  Hope there is a “place” for me somewhere somehow.
