365 days ago, I started drafting this post where I take one photo or media each day and say something about how my day went on with it. I know that this will be worth reading on the eve of January 1st, 2019. 52 weeks, 12 months and endless uncertainties, shocks and surprises surely await!
JANUARY is the first of the 12 and this were the things that transpired… #newyear #january #surprising #challenging.
DAY 31 – SANITY: So this is how I started the last day of the month. I went to a Neuro-Psychiatric Testing Center and Medical Clinic to comply the requirements about what I shared yesterday. I had fun answering but I felt a bit tensed because of how the result may appear. We will all find out on the 2nd day of February.
DAY 30 – WHOAH! : I received this in my Yahoomail inbox this afternoon. I must admit that this had my heart skipping for an hour or two. There are too many interpretations and assumptions about it but nonetheless, I lift it all up to God.
DAY 29 – RETRIEVING: I ordered these stuff from a friend who’s been working at the NCCC Mall and luckily, she was able to retrieve these items after the fire incident. It looked all so melted and so, I reprocessed them like a pro chemist and here’s the result!
DAY 28 – MASSAGE : I was enjoying the perks of having a massage therapist cousin in the middle of my auntie’s birthday celebration in Mandug. Goodbye, panuhots! Hello, pamaol!
DAY 27 – BOOMERANG : I surely love how this cutie patootie projects herself and the Boomerang app is one of our favorites! We did this at home but we already had collections of Boomerang shots while we were at the mall earlier that day.
DAY 26 – PIGGING OUT: Being surrounded by this pretty women may mean chaos at times but we always find harmony together when it comes to food. Last night’s OT deserves a “pigging out” session like this. Thank God for another shot of bonus!
DAY 25 – DISTRESSING: I realized that I have been wearing the same shirt and pajamas for four days now but they still don’t smell. Anyway, a short playtime with this kiddo distressed me from tonight’s overtime work at the office. Thank God for children who teach us the benefits of being carefree sometimes.
DAY 24 – CASH AND CHECK: I am starting to enjoy the convenience of having GCash in my pocket while I was catching up today’s’ due for a post-dated check. Thanks to my friend, Tin, who is ever-willing to lend a hand and my sister-in-law, who I discovered has a 5-digit salary take-out (hahahaha…). More blessings to all of you!
DAY 23 – CURLS: Yes, they are back, naturally! I swear, I miss dealing with this “buhaghag” hair because I still love them even when it gets too annoying at times and even when I look really ugly (uglier?) with it. Nonetheless, I love the fact that I can tie them up anytime.
DAY 22 – SURFING: This girl is growing up too fast, smarter yet a bit more stubborn as well. I just thank God for playtime like this and I hope to be playing more with her and her brother in the years to come.
DAY 21 – KIDDOS OVERLOAD: Attended baby Gab’s dedication today and met loads of patooties in the family. I MUST ADMIT, I am wishing to be married and have spent time with my own kids by now. Nonetheless, thanks for the parents who lend me theirs in times like this!
DAY 20 – KIDDOS: The only thing I realized today is how essential one’s family is in coping up with life’s challenges. May these kids find a strong foundation in this family, by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
DAY 19 – SKYPEing: I went to DOLE Regional Office this afternoon to undergo an interview for my application for LEO I for the Philippine Overseas Labor Office. I, along with the people who supports me on this prayed for this but ultimately, God’s will be done.
DAY18 – SEHRA: No, that weren’t Daniel Padilla and Susan Roces standing beside me! I look messed up in here, I realized this too late now. Anyway, finally finished the 4-day seminar and yes, so much to learn and execute and perform for public service.
DAY 17 – GLASS: This had me wondering if whether I am really in a seminar or in a bar with all the lights on and decent people around. Well, that’s for today’s random humor.
DAY 16 – SEMINAR: I know many seminars like this one await ahead of me this year. Anticipating developments in my career is surely a positive thought to keep and may God will sustain me all throughout the mind-boggling and body draining processes.
DAY 15 – NCCC: Passed by this place today and had a heartfelt sadness realizing that my previous workplace, my once family, had gone through such an unfortunate fate before 2017 ended. (sigh)
DAY 14 – PAIN : It is almost every month when I get to feel this abdominal pain due to menstruation but what also comes along with it is that state of melancholy. Pressing on, pressing on some hot compress to ease the pain away.
DAY 13 – LAYOUT: Taken around 6:15 in the evening of Saturday. I usually stay at home on Saturdays and today, I spent most of my time chatting with my parents about how this house will undergo a re-layout. We have great plans, lots of choices but the thing is, these won’t work without “cen” (money in tsabakano). But the year is still young so let’s see what will happen in the coming months.
DAY 12 – SOLO: Sometimes, going solo makes me feel lonely though ideally, moments like this should be turned into a state of solitude.
DAY 11- GREY: I told her that my phone was screenlocked but she still found a way to use the camera through the shortcut at the lock screen. 😂😂
DAY 10 – OPPORTUNITY: I am hoping that job offers like this will keep on coming. I just need to earn more to pay for 30% of my debts and 70% other peoples’ bills that are under my name. Well, got to pay on yesteryears’ mistakes.
DAY 9- CAR: Something like this is another item to add in the dreamlist. My cousin told me that you can’t be mine but thanks for lending me your hot wheels for me to learn how to drive.
DAY 8 -EARLY BIRD: The daily time record card is getting better. (When I edited this blog on Jan 12, I remembered that I committed a 2-minute late for the day. Goodbye, PhP500!)
DAY 7 – UNKNOWN: Not all days are good but good things still do happen. As for me, I am in deep confusion now and I wish we could only blame it on the hormonal imbalance.
DAY 6 – JUICING: It’s my first juicing for this year and I hope to keep it up every day, so, help me God. The taste isn’t quite good though.
DAY 5 – PLANNER: It’s still the first five days of the year and the list is already getting long!
DAY 4 – JUSTICE DEFINED: Just reading this made me hear God’s answer to my prayer.
DAY 3 – LEARN: Whether it is for one’s own spiritual, intellectual, emotional or physical growth, there is always a room for improvement.
DAY 2 – SIARGAO: That moment when you watched a movie alone to make it a part of your some kinda “moving on” moment but the name of the “bida” is the same as your ex’s. Haha… You’re such a joker, God!
DAY 1 – THE DRIVE: Driving an automatic car for the first time in a 7.5 km distance with papa as my guide/teacher and mama as my passenger.
