“I can and I will. Watch me.”
That’s what she told herself. Then, a miracle happened almost overnight.
First week of 2018 is over and I couldn’t be any more grateful. I made it home before 12 midnight for four days of work. If I haven’t mentioned it enough on my FB posts, IG stories and here in my blog, well, I usually go home on wee hours because of such a busy work. I guess I also did not manage my time well. But anyways, here’s to a new year. I have come into a realization that my life isn’t as healthy as it used to be. I drained my energy every single day. I always find myself watching vlogs at 4 AM. Could you believe that? Once, I was working until 6 AM. How crazy was that! Now, I am slowly learning to change my bad habits. Not because it’s a new year, but because I want my normal life back.
Okay let’s talk about my weekend. On Saturday, I woke up late and decided to do the laundry. I wash my own clothes. If I’m too busy (or lazy) to do it, I ask someone to do it for me and I pay her. But I don’t know what have gotten into me, it took me almost 7 hours to finish everything. It was a heavy laundry day. I showered after hanging my clothes and guess what, the next thing I did was cleaning my room until almost 2 AM. Then, I went outside to hunt for food because I was starving. Lol.
On Sunday, I was supposed to go to church but my whole body was so painful so I didn’t get up on bed until 3 PM. I had my first meal at four and started decluttering my closet after eating. I gave up the clothes I can no longer wear. I think I’ll give away those or sell some maybe.
I’m almost finished with my milk so I’m gonna wrap up now. Thank you, Lord for the productive week. Thank you, too, self for being extra diligent. Hello another week!
P.S. The photo in this post is so random. I just had to include it. It reminded me of my Saturdate with AJ. When he was still in Cebu, we always go out on Saturdays. Now, my weekend is all about cleaning.
Christmas has passed. The past few weeks have been so bellyful. Is that even a word? Lol. Heavy meals here and there, especially during the days when my boyfriend came home. So please don’t ask me why most of my recent photos are hiding the belly. Blame it on the holidays. December has been my busiest month. Too many parties happened. Gift shopping was the most stressful. Cashier lines took too long. I ended up spending more than my allotted budget but it’s fine. ‘Tis the season of giving and sharing.
Anyways, the next sentence would be cheesy so you may skip reading it. All I wanted for Christmas is to spend it with my love AJ. We haven’t seen each other for almost a month and the eagerness to hold him again is desperate enough. Thank God, in spite of the bad weather, he made it home just a few hours before Christmas Eve.
I spent Christmas dividing my time. I had a dinner first with AJ’s family then he drove me home and had my second round of dinner. I was also supposed to post photos of the gifts I wrapped for my family and friends but I binge wrapped on the 24th already so I had no more time to take a snap of all the presents.
Honestly, I just don’t feel Christmassy this year. I remember a few years back, the streets were already full of lanterns and lights as early as the ber month starts. Then you could hear Christmas songs all day everyday. But this year is worse. Came November, there were still no vibes of Christmas I felt. It saddens me. This season is supposed to be jolly. I even stayed up until past 12 midnight for the fireworks but I was disappointed. I have not seen even a single firecracker. Hopefully next year wouldn’t be the same because December is one of my favorite months.
To summarize my whole December in three words, it would be eat, party, shop.
