Life Updates and Whatnots

Hello, hello!

Oh how I missed writing.

I am currently deep into my superhero shows obsession that I throw my blog and books in the side to watch movies, read articles, find the best comic books, and what ever to feed my obsession. Haha!

It is kinda hard at work lately as we are on a tight manning and recently changed management in our department, so you can imagine a ton of changes and adjustments going on. But I am actually surprised that I am more pumped and inspired to work lately. What is wrong with me? ;D

Anyway, I just want to list down random things here to update my very minimal blog followers. (Hi! My blog still exists! Hehe.)

  • I just got a vacuum cleaner for my condo and I have been wondering why I haven’t bought one for the last 4 years that I was living there. IT WAS MAGIC. <3
  • I am currently training for a managerial position at work. Just to be ready if ever a position becomes vacant. I was actually not really looking into getting this position as my colleagues and superiors know that I am really leaning more into training. But since an opportunity is up, I guessed I would just go with it, right?
  • I was planning an overseas solo trip for my birthday which looks like its scrapped now because of some unforeseen circumstances. I would still try to push for it, though! Never say never!
  • My mom’s 55th birthday is coming up and I am planning on maybe booking a staycation for the whole fam.
  • I want a week long vacation, wherein I would just stay at home for 2 days and then spend one whole day at a nice cozy coffee shop and do my errands. Cook lunch for the fam. Swim everyday. Read comics and books. And basically, just relax. I haven’t had a proper rest since January.
  • I know I always say this, but I really want to have the time to always write here. I am miserably failing with my 2017 NY Resolutions. *facepalm*
  • We have an upcoming trip to Cebu with my work friends and I am so excited!! This is our first trip together out of the main island that we are complete. #baksislife
  • By the way, what do you guys think about the new Spiderman movie? Because, I LOVED IT! The story was light, in contrast with Civil War where we first saw Tom Holland as Spidey. But IMO, we need that. ‘Cause all the movies are already heavy and we need one movie to balance things out. And besides, Tom was great as Peter and Spiderman! I loved Tobey and Andrew but that “young” feeling that you get from the comics was better portrayed by Tom.
  • Justice League is also coming out this year, and I recently saw a panel of the JL cast in the recent SDCC. It was a big turn off when Ezra Miller slightly threw shade over at Marvel, saying “Are there other comic houses? (other than DC)”. I seriously think they are not in the position to be talking trash as Marvel is the biggest in the Cinematic Universe business now. Get your shit together, Miller. (I still love you, though :))

I still have so much to talk about, but I will just post another entry with a more organized content.

Thanks for reading! :*

Oh hi, I have so much in my mind again right now. So I’ll just write about things in random order.

  • I have a post sitting in my drafts about our Korea trip. I might finish that this Sunday. Take note, “might”. Haha.
  • Work has been great! I just got promoted and since then, it has been a roller coaster ride. I have been taking notes of things I need to remember. I have to be stronger now. More than I have been before. Expectations are higher and eyes are on me right now. You can do it, self!
  • I have noticed that I have matured a lot from the last year. I have longer patience and deeper understanding on people. The beauty of being in hospitality.
  • Wow. So You and Me by Lifehouse just played on my Spotify Radio.
  • I have been having really weird dreams. Weird talaga.
  • I want to stop thinking. I really should. But God, why?
  • There’s someone at work that has been snappy lately. I am really trying my best to understand this person.
  • I have so much hope for my team. #StartingFresh
  • I have to be more focused now.
  • I need to balance life and work better now.
  • I love me-times. Just like now.
  • I have become anti-social. Maybe because of work? That after I step out of work grounds, I switch off the world around me. Sometimes I see someone in the mall that I know and I just pretend I did not see them. Coz I dont wanna talk. :)
  • One of my work bestie is getting married in 2 weeks. So excited for her!
  • Dennis will be working for a new company soon! Thank You God, for letting this happen!
  • I read old messages from random people at Facebook. And made me realize that so much could change in 6 years.
  • Current fave song: Be Alright and Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande.
  • I have a new found love for Korean Cosmetics. Too bad they overprice it here in Manila.
  • What if’s. Could’ve been.
  • Bummed that most of my favorite TV Series are on break.
  • Bought new office supplies today. #ItWillNeverBeEnough
  • I cannot live without my daily planner. So many meetings, my mind cannot remember it all by its own. Haha.
  • I have cried 3 times in the last 2 weeks. Malapit na mabreak yung streak ko sa Makati Shang. HAHAHA.
  • Again, be tough.
  • You’re doing great, self. Keep it up! *pats back*

Floating in the Midst of Everything

Once again I am in that state in life where everything seems “normal”. Too normal that I feel like I am just floating, going with the flow wherever the universe wants to take me. I guess I have always been the type of person that seeks new challenges, new things to do, and new things to learn. I can’t have just a normal and steady day. Guess I am a drama queen after all.

Today I just had a talk with two of my supervisors over lunch. One of them said she could see so much potential in me, and that I should not just always go with the flow. She said that she believes in me and knows that one day, soon enough, my true potential would show.

Oftentimes though, I find myself asking, “Have I been working too much that I am forgetting how to live?”. Working in my line of industry is a big challenge. You have to give up your time with family, friends and sometimes, even for yourself. Which is probably why I feel empty sometimes. Sometimes lang naman.

Two nights ago I was invited by one of Dennis’ barkada to join them in his birthday celebration at a club in Timog. It was last minute and good thing I was clothed decently, and not wearing my usual “pambahay look” on my way to and from the office. Upon entering the club, booming music welcomed us, and the smell of smoke. It has been a long time since I got to visit a club. Since I am not that close with his guy friends, I had the chance to observe the people inside the club, and thought about the time I was the one standing (or dancing) on the dance floor. I felt so free for just a few hours, singing and dancing the night away to my favorite songs. Nakakamiss maging carefree. Disclaimer though, hindi ako party girl. I just kind of went out with my friends to party a few times lang.

I am still dreaming of getting that dream job where it would give me work-life balance. I love my current company, but sometimes, being a hotelier really isn’t that easy. Right now I am, kind of, lost with what I want to do next. Lately I always ask myself, “What’s my next step?”. I am little bit half-hearted in staying and wanting to go away. I want to be promoted, but I also want to work in the US.

Basta, it’s like one big blur.

Though I am not sad naman, I am happier than sad, actually. I don’t know. Sometimes I don’t understand myself.  I need more me-time I suppose…

I always write here with so much thoughts, and it’s not even the half of what goes through my head everyday.

Wow, suddenly this sounds so depressing. Haha! Sorry for that, I have to stop talking now.

See you, folks! :)

What I Have Been Up To

Hola everyone. I am a really bad blogger, I know.

When I put up this blog, I said to myself that I should atleast make an entry once a week, but lo and behold, I did 1 every 3 months. Haha. The number one sin of blogging… unofficially, of course. ;)

I won’t promise to do that target, but I will promise to keep this updated as much as I could. To write about things that’s in my mind, things that might be of interest, too, for other people.

No you might be asking me the title of this post, well, to answer that question, it is work… and a lot of series binge-watching, which I want to talk about.

Barry Allen / The Flash
Barry Allen / The Flash

I have recently been watching Arrow and The Flash, and my oh my these guys are adorable! Grant Gustin is perfect to be cast as Barry Allen. It is indeed a huge leap from his Glee role, Sebastian, but I still loved him as much. My favorite scene is when he sang with Caitlyn at the karaoke bar. I never heard him sing like that in Glee. WHAT A LOVELY VOICE!!! ♥

 

Anyhoo, The Flash is more of the good son, family oriented series, even though his mother died in the beginning and his father was sent to prison for her murder. The catch, however is that the real killer, Barry, and all the viewers know, is not his father. Who it was, will be revealed through out the course of Season 1. The story of how The Flash was born, and where he got his powers, will amaze the crap out of you.

Oliver Queen / The Arrow

Now, Stephen Amell, hmm. My heart broke when I learned he is already married. HAHA. He seems like a funny and sweet guy IRL. I love his character Oliver Queen in Arrow and all those workout scenes *wink*. Hahaha, srsly why do they have to always include a workout scene in every single episode? Hahaha, though I am not complaining. ;)

 

This show has been showing longer than The Flash, and I am still just on Season 2, but almost done though. They had just recently came back for their midseason premier, and what’s exciting is that The Flash and The Arrow have the stories happening simultaneously.

The Walking Dead will be back by next month and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. by March. One of my friends said that he noticed I am usually interested in series that are in the action/ suspense side. Thing is I am more drawn to the story with all the excitement that the shows gives. And I get that mostly from Sci-Fi shows. Some shows that I used to watch died my interest because it was not giving me adrenaline like what the characters of these shows are feeling. I’d still love to finish Suits though. My colleagues won’t stop pushing me to catch up with the series. Haha.

Bittersweet

Hi. I’m currently at this place in Bagbag. A small coffee place that’s quite familiar in this area. They serve good coffee and pastries. Pwede na pampalit sa Starbucks. Hehehe

I got Tiramisu and Caramel Macchiato. Yum!

Anyway…

• So I noticed I have been spending most of my time at work. I’m starting to feel fed up. Medyo nakakasawa nadin yung ginagawa ko. Araw araw nalang. Haha. Tho I still love my job nonetheless. It might just have something to do with the people I work with. I dunno. Basta there’s something wrong.

• Before, I never really wanted to be a Flight Attendant. Pero I just realized na the salary I will get there would help me save up and start my own business. Yung noon ko pa pinapangarap na matayo.

• Ang taba taba ko na. I just weighed myself this morning and I was shocked! :'( Naiiyak na talaga ko sa katabaan ko. I seriously need to lose weight. Di na to healthy.

• Treated Mom and the Sibs on a dinner at Senju last Aug 21 for Mom’s birthday. Kahit na “medyo” masakit sa bulsa yung bill… okay lang. Nakita ko namang masaya si Mommy at yung mga kapatid ko. #fulfilledAte

• Sobrang blessing sakin yung AlDub kasi napapasaya talaga ko at nalilimutan ko ung worries ko. Escape lang talaga e. Saka ang gwapo ni Alden. Swerte ni Maine. Hahaha! Sobrang bait at God-fearing niya. Swerte din ni Alden kay Maine kasi simple lang siya saka masaya kasama.

Sumabog na yung kilig ko dito!! Hahaha

• I still cannot decide what to do for my birthday. Gusto ko mag out of town e. Kaso saan? Saka sino kasama ko? Haha. Gusto ko din mag-KTV party e. What do you think guys?

My new favorite brew.

• Work has been tough these past few days. We were short of 5 people in the team. Di pa napapalitan yung mga magresign. Syempre reliever ng bayan ang lola niyo. Not complaining tho. It has just been really exhausting.
