Since my surgical clinical was completed last week, I had my much appreciated 1st long weekend since the start of this school semester.
After school on Friday, I went to the supermarket to stock up my fridge. Thereafter over the weekend, I stayed home and did nothing of consequence. Slept+++, did my laundry, cleaned my bedsheets and bed items, cleaned my room, surfed internet, watch YouTube videos, chatted with my housemates, etc. On Monday, I prepped for my 1st formal event in Metro Vancouver (donned a ballroom gown), attended a theatre awards ceremony in the evening (we were nominated albeit we didn't win), and caught up with some friends. Lazed around at home again today (Tuesday), doing more non-consequent stuff.
Hmm, it made me think: that is how I would like my retirement to be -- a lazy, relaxed affair. Maybe catching up with friends weekly, a weekly volunteer assignment (to continue contributing to my community), participating in some cultural, nature-appreciation or other related events fortnightly, and then mostly sitting back, relaxing and doing absolutely nothing of consequence.
Yeah! I don't care if I am labelled an under-motivated underachiever in life. All I care is that I can envision a happy retirement in Canada. That makes me happy, and that is all that matters.
