Zombie

I recently noticed that I've been following a daily routine... Ever since my wifey's not around because she's pursuing her masters at UPM, Serdang, I've been doing the same thing over and over again in most of my days...

I wake up at 6.00 a.m but I snooze the alarm and sleep for another 30 minutes before hitting the bloody cold shower... Then I iron my working clothes and solat Subuh... I eat breakfast, either nasi lemak or nasi minyak, make the bed, pack my bag and leave house at around 7.10 or 7.15 a.m...

The motorcycle ride to work usually lasts 40 minutes... Then I work until 5.00 p.m

I reach home from work at 5.40 p.m and do some gym free work out such as shadow boxing, push ups and crunches for 20 minutes... After that, I hit the shower and have early dinner... If I don't feel like exercising (which happens a lot), I would just lie down on my bed and have a short nap before shower...

At 7.00 p.m, abah goes to the surau for Maghrib prayer, so I'll take over the counter of our grocery shop... Then I take over again when it's Isya'... 

Basically, my time of relaxation and leisure starts at around 9.30 p.m... Firstly I would set up my laptop and check my e-mails, write a blog entry (like this one) or read online comix/manga... Once I run out of things to do online, I would choose any movie to watch... It's often not a good idea though sinceI tend to get sleepy through out a quarter of the movie... If I don't watch a movie, I would read my novels and magazines...

Of course, while doing all of that, I also text wifey... Sometimes I pause everything and call her just to hear her voice... Really miss her during nights... I end my day with a good night text from her...

This routine, I follow it almost everyday except during weekends... It's kinda depressing...

I guess this is the zombie life people on television warn me about... Hollywood always tells us, "Hey, don't just be stuck behind a desk! Don't follow a routine!! Don't be a zombie!! Follow your dreams!!" and all those shit... Fuck u Hollywood... I have responsibilities...

I need to think of a way to break the routine... I need to go places after work, not just be behind the counter taking orders from customers and being in front of a laptop... but the problem is, you see, I'm a good son... I'm way too considerate to abandon my duty as a son... Besides, my parents are both not at best of health lately...

Furthermore, I kinda got nowhere to go... Living in Dungun, the only mall present is Mesra Mall which is quite lame... It's TGV cinema is also lame because it shows crappy shits... Limited halls...

It'll be very easy if I'm living at Bandaraya Melaka right now... There are so many malls and cinemas there for me to hang out and watch latest blockbusters... I could go play pool with my buddies or watch football at Subaidah... Ahh, I miss Bandaraya Melaka and my bros there...

Hmmm... So, what can I do to change stuff before I become a grumpy zombie? I need my wifey la... It's always fun when she's around... We don't need to do stuff or go anywhere... Just talking with her can bring a lot of laughter... Ahh, I miss my baby wifey...

I keep telling myself that all of this is just temporary... My wife will finish her masters in a couple of years and we'll move to our own place... We won't have to separate again by that time... I guess that's the thing that make me hold on... I'm sure she's thinking the same...

I too will pursue my masters one day and get the hell out of politeknik and apply for a teaching position at a university...

For now, I'll just be patient and try to fight off the virus... Like people say, good things come to those who wait... Hey, I waited for quite a long time for my wife to accept me and look at us now... Happy and so in love with each other even though we've been together for so long...
