the meteorologists keep on saying how nice the weather is but with daytime temperature hovering in the 50's i don't think it's nice at all. other than the tibetan mountains of sichuan, most of my past 3 months were spent in warm climates, which now leaves me unable to adjust to the new england autumn. i shuffle around my house jumping from one pile of blankets to the next, trying to figure out if i should turn on the furnace or not.
once more i didn't leave the house all day. i was supposed to go over to my parents' place for dinner but that plan got cancelled. instead i took a long nap and woke up around 9pm to heat up a toaster oven french bread pizza and to take a hot bath, an exact repeat of what i did last night.
i can't be a prisoner of the weather! i have to get out of the house. to think, i used to run around in shorts during mild new england winters. those memories are a distant dream now... speaking of which, i can't seem to stop dreaming about asia. when i close my eyes at night, i'm at this weird dream world that's a fusion of hong kong and thailand. in my dream i try to make sense out of everything but of course nothing makes sense since it's a dream.
