Tweet Tweet

Check it out. I tweet therefore I am.

I'm waiting for the words to come, but it looks like I've used them all on this blog. Anyway, Twitter is part of my do-something-new-every-month for JULY (in addition to the Travels).

Speaking of which, I haven't gone into too much detail about my trip, simply because I don't feel like it. I don't feel like re-capturing those moments just yet. In a nut-shell, I had a great time, although I found Ireland somewhat lacking (maybe it's because I've been media-lized to expect this great sense of Irish Pride and Patriotism and found none)...but then again, its unfair to judge the entire country on one city. I should have travelled inland, explored more. Edinburgh was beautiful and amazing. Cardiff was great too but the weather was shite.

That aside, I'm seriously re-thinking my life's purpose. I love the freedom that money can buy, but I'm going through one of those patches where nothing in life makes any sense. I'm ready to just throw in the towel and go gallivanting on some charity mission. I wonder if I could join the Peace Corps as a foreigner? I don't really know whats going on but at this point, I feel like I'm being called to a higher purpose. Stuff that involves building homes for those who have none and taking care of children who have nothing.

Maybe I just need to smoke weed. Not happening though, I'm too much of a control freak to go there and Ramadaan is around the corner.

On a totally unrelated note, for those following Mandy's exploits and my updates on her, I'm glad to report that as of last week, she is officially engaged. Yep, he popped the question with a beautiful ring and now he doesnt seem so old anymore hehehehe...

Anyway, her parents seem to have warmed up to him, and bottom line, he can provide for her in a way that no one else can. She's happy and I wish her all the best. I'm glad I nearly kicked her backside. Sometimes, people need that.

  2. The Peace Corps isn't all it's cracked up to be - most of them take up weed or booze to get through the day.

    Better that you wallow in a life of indulged luxury - because the Peace Corps will make you a hopeless cynic.
