Good - Had a great dinner with co-workers
Bad - Acted like a moron in a conference call with customers while my boss was on the call
Life can be so brilliant and so sad...
The bad news is I can't seem to be able to get the tax thing off my back completely (OK. I do realize that the tax thing is always there. I just can't believe that a new type of tax will pop up in my court whenever I turn around). People around me always wonder why I spend so much time on doing my taxes. Whenever I tell them, "I just want to do the right thing". They would just laugh at my face =D I just can't resist. I mean I would spend hours pouring through regulations and publications trying to understand the correct interpretation and making sure I get my calculations correct. My brother said the other day "There's surely something better in this world that you can do than spending time on THIS!".
(2) Put away some for my nephew who is autistic.
(3) Put away some for my retirement
(4) Donate some to Parkinson's support group. A young patient mentioned a dream of setting up a long-term care facility for other PD patients.
(5) Quit my job. Travel around the world. And when I come back, I want to spend my time on volunteering work.
I am grateful to a few friends who really care about my well-being, and to the QAF fic writers and fans who provided me a platform to escape my mind to when life got tough.
Another thing that keeps me going... reading books on subway. I have just finished the thirty-first book "The Tipping Point" since Jan 2008. Current reading: "Introducing Freud". I am hoping I can increase my reading speed to about 6 hours per book. There are so many books in the world that I want to read...
Somehow tonight I want to post something. I still enjoy reading QAF fic a lot. Still sticking to this habit of reading some B/J stuff, checking out LJ updates, etc before going to bed every night. Which makes me wonder... How much less interesting life will be if one day there will be no more new QAF fics to read and no more great postings by the many wonderful folks on their LJ journals (like the beautiful creation and inspiration byjans_intentions or the cutest doodles byurl_girl, etc etc).
In 10 years... Where will I be? What will I be doing? What will happen to my loved ones by then? And what about the world? How many discoveries and disasters will happen to this world by then?
Maybe I am just thinking too much...
Time for bed I guess...
