a Cheap Holiday

Cheap Holiday

Welcome to a cheap holiday in my life. At least you get to go home at the end of the day!

I measure my life by pleasure.

I am often reminded by my married friends or friends who have children that this is not a bad thing. Both my space and my time is my own. However, having lived like this for several years, I do long for the rigor of a relationship and a family and often consider my pleasures to be frivolous and somehow soulless. But, for right now, I have pleasure as I see fit.

Tonight, I attended a wine tasting sponsored by Wine Brats aboard the Moshulu restaurant located on a tall ship at Penn's Landing in Philly. While the venue was luxurious and the weather perfect, they never serve enough food at these events. The poor waiter attempting to carry a tray of skewered shrimp was practically attacked on his way to the serving table.

I was quite socially accomplished this evening. You may be surprised to hear that I consider myself socially inept. As someone given towards moodiness and reclusivity, I don't naturally overflow with gregariousness and flirtatiousness. So, before attending the event tonight, I set myself a goal to introduce myself to 3 total strangers. I managed to outperform my goal by introducing myself to 7 total strangers.

Perhaps this seems strange to you, but I feel quite proud of myself.
