Anyway, allow me to share several thoughts I've been having lately. Perhaps some of you can relate to one or more of these?
I've been wearing a lot of pink lately. People has started speculating that I'm pregnant, specifically with a baby girl. I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not pregnant. My cheeks look chubbier but my stomach is as flat as an ironing board (or maybe not really).
I love napping with Miss Jess and often get worried if I'd crush on her while napping and she'd die. Today I found out that that is something which will unlikely happen. I accidently kicked her head and she bit my foot. She always puts up a fight (and ends up winning).
After seeing the news about my country's economic situation, I realised how dynamic life is. And even though my little young family has to strive harder now, I see hope in everything. I feel so energised and full of life right now that I start to think I'm being silly and naive.
I have a new found love for Eka Kurniawan. Earlier this month, I finally gave local novels a try after years of being disgusted at how silly their back cover synopsis are. I picked three books, one that of Eka Kurniawan, the other two are by Dwitasari "and friends". I stopped reading Dwitasari's Jatuh Cinta Diam-Diam halfway through, but I fell deeply in love with Eka Kurniawan's Perempuan Patah Hati yang Kembali Menemukan Cinta Melalui Mimpi. I love his writing style and his stories are very unique. Two of his novels are going to be published in English next month: Beauty is a Wound and Man Tiger (you can pre-order here and here).
Did you know that my husband is a blogger too? I hadn't read his blog for a while, but yesterday I went and saw this post about his first Ramadan with me. I might have cried a little. He is very amazing. I love him. And I'm glad I did well in our first Ramadan living together.
I miss reading your blogs. How are you? Tell me one of your random thoughts right now!
