|3/17||[Happy St. Patrick's day!]
Woke up around 3:00AM because it was cold. I dreamed of my grandpa somehow. I don't know why but I did remember quite a lot, the way how he walked, talked about a bunch of things, the time I think I had a happy time with him, the time I met him last time, telling me that he would never thought of seeing me again, the time he told me what kind of dream he had. For the past 28 years, I guess I knew him all the time. When the person pass away, the time stop at that moment. Like my friend told me, I may forget how his voice sounds in a long time, but words he said, won't.
It was another cold day in the March, but at least it was sunny. I spend whole day at office taking care of my stuffs. I did got off from work around 6:00PM and went for a walk before having dinner. I would love to go out and have a green beer tonight since it is a St. Pat's day but I gave up. I was a bit tired and spend evening quiet. I hope I get to run over the weekend. Going to bed around 11:00PM. Let's my weekend begin!
