DAY 271 : In DarknessDate: 26/01/2015
Loadshedding seems to be at it's peak right now and it's finally getting in the way of things for me. I am either trying to work out the hours I need to avoid being at home or trying to figure out a way to make the battery last on my phone, laptop and DVD player. The few hours of power that we receive during the day is simply not enough to power the back-up inverter. Oh well. I guess the only way out of this is to be clever, work hard and be rich rich rich! Haha! I am sure the path to being rich is a lot more attainable than waiting around in hope that the government or the promises that they had thrown our way will be kept. The bottom-line; DIY.
Apart from leaving the premises to go pick up a newspaper, I stayed in pretty much all day. Jokes exchanged between the family member, Viber calls back home and surfing the internet kept me occupied. We're planning a trip to LA and Vegas later this year and I just finished creating a rough itinerary and a brief cost outline. I do believe we'll go this year. I cannot wait already. Just need to think how I will afford all of this... aatt garepachi huncha kya re!
In the darkness I watched WILD starring Reese Witherspoon. The film focuses on the journey of Cheryl Strayed as she goes hiking across The Pacific Crest Trail. It showcases the events in her life till the moment she decided to go on the hike, a tale of self-discovery! Discovering life I'd say! Twas a nice watch... more emphasis on Reese Witherspoon, fine acting by her.
Anyways' I've got a somewhat busy day tomorrow and it's 3.20AM now. Ugh. Let's hope I do wake up before 9AM tomorrow. See this is what happens... the power came back on around 12.23AM and had me like... do I go to sleep or do I stay awake? And if I do stay awake, how long do I stay awake for? Zzzzzzzzzzzz!
