Waste anything but time

The departure date for my girlfriend’s flight is approaching fairly quickly. It’s only a matter of weeks before she boards the plane back to Hong Kong. I hope that I’ve made the most of her vacation here but part of me feels that we didn’t get to do enough.

I can’t help it but blame our lack of time together on work. I’m at work for nine hours and then I need to sleep for another eight hours. That leaves the remaining hours to spend time with her. But there are days when I don’t feel like doing anything because I’m so drained. The work hours take a lot of you and when you get home, you just want to sleep.

It’s Friday night and I’m sitting here on the computer typing away on my blog. Jenn is on the bed sleeping because I didn’t have anything else planned for the day. To be honest, I didn’t want to do anything because I was tired. I was hoping to stay home and make it a night in but that seems like a waste of time. On the other hand, we can go out and do something but I don’t know what to do. I have fifty dollars that has to last me until pay day so we can’t do anything that requires money.

Usually on a night like this, I’d go hang out with my friends at the harbour front. We’d just hang out, shoot the breeze and just relax. We’re not doing anything productive but in the company of friends, who needs to be productive?

As it stands, hanging out with my friends wouldn’t be wasting time but it would mean wasting time with Jenn. Since she’s returning to Hong Kong soon, I would prefer to put in as much time with her as I possibly can. Whether it means going out or staying home and doing nothing, I would like to be in her presence. Well, I’d prefer doing something with her rather than sitting around but money’s a little tight right now. Once pay day comes, we’ll be able to do something more entertaining.
