As frustrating as yesterday turned out to be (for not actually accomplishing anything of note with the time, that is), today was by comparison much better. This, despite the fact that I actually had a bit of a false start today, as while I woke up early (eight thirty in fact), I took one look at the clock, then went straight back to bed. Oh well. At least when I woke up again at around eleven I was more or less on track to what I needed to do… That is, find a nice place outside the house away from any distractions and do some reading.
Instead of going to school, I decided to just head over to the Ayala Triangle in Makati. Although it was raining by the time I left the house (meaning I had to take an umbrella with me), the rain pretty much blew itself out by the time I got to Makati. Things more or less went as planned when I finally got to the park itself, and by the time it was around five-thirty, I had finished Rimbaud’s A Season in Hell and was halfway done with Kawabata’s Snow Country.
Progress! These are two of the shorter books on my reading list, true, but at least I’m actually reading them, and not getting distracted with whatever it is displayed on my PC’s browser.
I’ll see if I can build on this after I get back from work, though there’s likely going to be more people in Makati tomorrow, park-goers aside. Hmm.
