Was that it? Is May already over? It feels as if the month has only just begun and here we are already, the last day before a new month. I am sometimes amazed at how quickly time seems to fly past me, although I shouldn’t be since my time is always filled with events, with activities, with time-consuming pastimes and fun. I am already looking towards the summer vacation, to the end of another college year in just a few months time and – it has been suggested by those on high – to an extension for a further qualification. My work, it seems, is good enough for those who are in the know to suggest, despite the fact that we haven’t reached that stage yet, that I continue on the educational ladder and, rather than having a few letters after my name, work towards some before it.

For me, though, after a strenuous weekend – well, Thursday and Friday – traveling alone, the ideal is a little time to relax again, before the new week starts, before the hectic and press of work and learning take over my life once more.
It was a very strange experience, sleeping in a single bed away from home once again – yes, I do call this home now – with no one to cuddle up with, no one to listen to while they sleep. Not something that I am going to get used to, not something that I wish to become accustomed to either. A strange bed in a strange town, unknown surroundings, different atmosphere. I love traveling, but I love being home with those close to me too.
So, today is a do nothing day. A sleep in and cuddle day. A day, later, to consider the future and make plans. Another two years in college after this coming year is over? I don’t know. It certainly has something: I really love college work and everything that goes with it, but I had planned on only four years. We shall see. I still have plenty of time to make up my mind, and consider others in my life whilst doing so.
Love & Kisses, Viki.
