I am already awake for a few hours and I feel going back to bed. I’ve been taking care of responsible stuff and this is quite harsh for a Monday. Understanding the difference between HDB and condos in Singapore; reading about the districts and their particularities; checking each and every kindergarten webpage. Making up my mind about hiring a maid or not. That’ll be weird. Normally I use my step-mother.
Ah and I had an interview with a potential future employer! He’s working now on getting a Working Permit for me. That may sound like nothing, but it represents my independence. I love Love, but I love me too. Of course spending his money poses me no issue – we’re a couple. What’s his is mine. Sometimes the other way around too. However it would have been complicated to stay in the country as a tourist and raise our child leaving every three months – though I love being a tourist. Plus I think there is a limit to this strategy. And although I totally respect the choice of all the women getting married to be on a dependent visa (what we considered too), I am happy not to bend to those backward obligations. Not the marriage, the recognition coming with it. I love marriage. I even wish me one anytime soon. I do not love the idea that I must get married to get my couple recognized by the society.
See? Lots of responsible thoughts this morning.
I woke up early.
Also did I mention that it is snowing here?
In fact it is not that bad because I have some activities in mind for Babylove – four days of weekend in Germany. Those long breaks remind me how I envy the mothers with endless imagination. They can pull a new idea out of their… sleeves anytime they want. I have to spy on Pinterest. Sometimes I even ask Babylove to point at what he’d like to do. Luckily it’s snowing today. If we run and play and snow fight enough, he’ll sleep through the afternoon.
I’ll have some time for
myself watching a movie cleaning the fridge work on my semiotics assignment. Zut. I had forgotten this one.
