Breathing Room

An extra room has magically been added to your home overnight. The catch: if you add more than three items to it, it disappears. How do you use it?

As I live in a smallish flat / apartment – three bedrooms but really small – space is premium. I wish we had more space. I like the actual apartment but not the building as it has absolutely no amenities and is shit on maintenance. We have three bedrooms, one of which is being used as a common room. It has our iron board, some shelves and book shelves, storage for paper work and stuff, a built in table and a chair and my parent’s pooja shit and a steel cupboard in which we keep some clothes.

That leaves some space in the center to walk around. My bathroom is adjacent to that and next to the bathroom is my bedroom. My parents have the other bedroom and we have a kitchen and the living room / dining table. I have my queen sized bed, a small table for my laptop, speakers, external hard drives and some other computer stuff and a char, a built in cupboard, a circular clothes stand to hang some clothes and ofcourse the book shelf I had made to showcase my starships.

I could use another room, same size as the one I sleep in. I would put a large couch and add a tv and bluray / dvd player and use it as a chill out room.

Quite Weekend In

I’ve been going out most weekends or atleast one day of the weekend, usually a Saturday, so much that I decided to take some me time and spend this weekend at home. Quite and relaxing and not doing much at all. I had 3 day off this week, Wednesday being a public holiday and I have chosen to stay at home for all three. Not to mention that I had a nasty cold and had a slight temperature on Tuesday so I ended up coming home early, after just four hours at the office.

I’ve been going out more, going for movies every other week, spending time in malls and going out to eat. There’s only so much that a guy who is almost 40 now can do. So I need to pace myself. Nothing exciting happening around town this weekend and no movies that I really want to see so stay at home, put my feet up, watching a bunch of Youtube videos and vlogs, catch up on tv shows and watch a movie or two. Why, that sounds lovely?

For dinner, I had some fried chicken but just before that I had some vodka and sprite and to be honest, I am missing my drinking. I haven’t had much in recent months even beers have been so little. You can’t drink at the theatres so I guess that’s why I haven’t been drinking much. I need to go restock up as well as I have run out of vodka.
