Chủ nhật

Buổi đêm nghe Joni Mitchell. Một ngày chủ nhật mở đầu bằng Lou Reed, tiếp theo là The Clash, Văn Cao, Peter Gabriel, Neil Young và kết thúc bằng Joni Mitchell.

Come in from the Cold

...
All we ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold
Come in
Come in from the cold
(we were so young)
Oh come in
Come in from the cold
We really thought we had a purpose
We were so anxious to achieve
We had hope
The world held promise
For a slave to liberty
Freely I slaved away for something better
And I was bought and sold
And all I ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold
...

When I thought life had some meanings
Then I thought I had some choice
(I was running blind)
And I made some value judgments
In a self-important voice
(I was outa line)
But then absurdity came over me
And I longed to lose control
(into no mind)
Oh all I ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold
Come in

Come in from the cold
...
California

Misc (bổ sung):

Sách: Đọc nốt vở The Flyers của Sartre, vài chương trong The Unbearable lighness of being của Kundera, vài chương tiểu thuyết Musashi (thể loại Samurai), 2 chương trong một cuốn của Jared Diamond, nửa chương về Voltare của Will Durant.
Phim: Xem 2 tập Tiếu ngạo giang hồ mới (không có ý định xem hết).
Ngủ: 3 giấc. Giấc 1 từ 4h đến 9h sáng. Giấc 2 chừng gần 1 tiếng buổi trưa. Giấc 3 chừng gần 1 tiếng buổi tối.
Thành tích: chat với bố mẹ sau gần 1 tháng
Khuyết điểm: Không học bài. Không bước chân ra khỏi nhà dù buổi chiều nắng khá đẹp và không quá lạnh. Quên một số thứ. Định lười không đánh răng trước khi đi ngủ.
Tâm trạng: Ù lì, chán chán, nếu hưng phấn cũng không kéo dài.

    Joni Mitchell

    Sitting in a park in Paris, France
    Reading the news and it sure looks bad
    They won’t give peace a chance
    That was just a dream some of us had
    Still a lot of lands to see
    But I wouldn’t want to stay here
    It’s too old and cold and settled in it’s ways here
    Oh, but California
    California I’m coming home
    I’m going to see the folks I dig
    I’ll even kiss a sunset pig
    California I’m coming home

    I met a redneck on a Grecian isle
    Who did the goat dance very well
    He gave me back my smile
    But he kept my camera to sell
    Oh the rogue, the red red rogue
    He cooked good omelettes and stews
    And I might have stayed on with him there
    But my heart cried out for you, California
    Oh California I’m coming home
    Oh make me feel good rock’n roll band
    I’m your biggest fan
    California, I’m coming home

    Chorus:

    Oh it gets so lonely
    When you’re walking
    And the streets are full of strangers
    All the news of home you read
    Just gives you the blues
    Just gives you the blues


    So I bought me a ticket
    I caught a plane to Spain
    Went to a party down a red dirt road
    There were lots of pretty people there
    Reading rolling stone, reading vogue
    They said, how long can you hang around?
    I said a week, maybe two,
    Just until my skin turns brown
    Then I’m going home to California
    California I’m coming home
    Oh will you take me as I am
    Strung out on another man
    California I’m coming home

    Chorus:

    Oh it gets so lonely
    When you’re walking
    And the streets are full of strangers
    All the news of home you read
    More about the war
    And the bloody changes
    Oh will you take me as l am?
    Will you take me as l am?
    Will you?

  • Tâm trạng Ù lì không hưng phấn is a sign of seasonal depression. :) The change from fall to winter does it to you.

    Cố lên. :)
