When I Get Home, I am Building My Own Library

This is one of my goals when I return to my home. I’ve only enjoyed my new home for just a couple of months and I still have lots of plans with it. And as the title suggests, I will be building my own library/office/study nook. It doesn’t have to be a closed area. I am planning to simply put some book shelves that will carry all my books waiting to be read. I’ll buy a modern stand lamp, an office table or just a comfortable reading chair. The shelves need not be a very big and expensive furniture with 48 in drawer slides where I can put tons of stuff. It will simple be rows of platforms that are wide enough to house my books. I will need to talk to my wife about this. She will definitely give her approval about the idea but we’ll have to agree on the designs.

Vancouver Wish List

Some things that I am planning to buy while I am here at Vancouver:

  • External portable hard drive – I currently have two portable hard drives and they are both full.
  • All-terrain shoes – my officemates slash onshore buddies are planning to have several hiking/trekking activities. I will need the right kind of shoes for that.
  • A bunch of supplements.

Yes. Just three items for now. I don’t want to use up all my funds. I am planning to bring home more money so I can proceed with my Sylvester Project (my silver Honda Civic FD).

Updates as of March 3: I have already bought a Western Digital 2TB portable hard drive and I love it! I only got it for $109 at Best Buy. I also bough a pair of Merrell shoes which was really a treat to wear.
