Watch, Read, Study, Play
I love free time! Yesterday was a semi-rainy Saturday, and even though I usually hate dreary weather, at least it was a perfect backdrop for staying inside (or hanging out at a bookstore) and doing stuff I enjoy. I'm always adjusting my life to try to squeeze in all my obsessions into each day, so the latest scheme I've come up with with is Watch, Read, Study, Play. If I can check each of those off my mental list each day, then I've had a nice day! Watch means to keep up on my pile of DVDs, so yesterday I finished the first DVD in the Batman Animated Series set I'm watching. Read means to stay current with my magazines, manga, and books, so yesterday I read the latest issue of Tales from the Laughing Place Magazine cover to cover (relaxing with coffee at Barnes & Noble). Study means to work on my Japanese, so I used my dictionary and looked up just about every word I didn't know on my sample JLPT. Play means to spend some quality time with my Nintendo DS or PS2, so I spent a while in Animal Crossing (but I have been seriously neglecting my other games lately, so I have to fix that!). Of course, there are other things I need to do everyday, such as post something on WEBmikey, or get off my butt and exercise, but so far I like the simplicity of Watch, Read, Study, Play.
