Our Daily Bread

I always want to sleep-in on my so-called day off, but I never get it. :/ The body clock is just so used to waking up early. Sad but true. Anyway, the plan for today is to review for my OET Exam next month, but firstly, I did the chores this morning which I really like doing (No kidding, I do like it when I'm not super tired. And yes, I'm weird). Cooked us lunch and had a siesta. Then n the arvo, Gilbert and I decided to have a walk! Yes, we are going to get this healthy thing happening! Woohoo! :D We decided to have a walk towards St. Kilda beach from home, South Yarra, and we did it! Decent walk I should say -- 4.38km, one way. Took us around 50 mins just with a normal pace of walking.
Haven't had a long walk for a while, say a year. The last time I had a record on my walking/running was in November 2012! That's really bad and it made me think, I should really be walking more. But we were good and we coped well. Weather was nice for walking too! :)
We had a bit of a rest when we got there. Legs are tightening up at this stage, because I think I didn't get to do stretching before we started, which was really wrong! But oh well, we still are pretty good at this stage.
And the view when we walked down the pier at the beach... The wind strongly blowing... The smell of the beach... Aaaaahh! Nice feeling :) We are happy we did this today! More walks to come soon, maybe?

I think the spirit of blogging is really in me. I dunno why because I'm seriously not good at it but I guess I'm really trying hard. Now, I'm using my smart phone to blog and I've just downloaded an app for blogging. I think this is a trial on how good this app actually is. I've never used my phone for blogging before so if this will do it's job well, then this will be permanent in my phone.

So, here it is. I hope whoever is reading this will like it.
It's been a long while since I've felt this,
Like little pins piercing my limbs.
Nostalgic moments creeping in,
Seems like I cannot feel anything...
But the ice and fire battling together in me,
I know somewhere in me is hurting.
Is it the heart that feels everything?
When the only duty it has to do is keep on pumping?
What good is a heart then?
When it makes you feel all the burden?
Oh, yes! It's that feeling...
The fear that lurks in...
The unknown madness that looks at you with a grin...
And then you say,
"I am trembling."

So here's a recording video I made tonight. I learned playing the song for only two hours so sorry for the mistakes, or if the recording is not very good. I tried and that's what matters, right? Hope you enjoy. The meaning of the song is really nice and I hope it will inspire you, too, as much as it's inspired me.
