Counting the Blessings

Tired af.

I will recount how extremely bad this day is.

😱 woke up at 2:30 am because I felt something crawling in my legs. Jumped when I realized it was a cockroach. #Thirdworldproblems

But guess what, I’m living in a condo and there’s supposed to be no cockroach here. The stupid landlord forgot to have it cleaned/pest controlled.

😱 I slept again and woke up at 6. This was supposed to be my normal waking hour. For some reason, I didn’t get out of bed.

The next thing I know is that i lt was already 7:30. I need to be in the office by 8 because I have to finish some things as I will be leaving from 9-12 due to some errands.

😱 No taxi. I wouldn’t dare take the jeepney or bus. It would take me an hour. I booked a Grabcar with an extremely high rate. I paid P250 for a 1km ride. Usual grabcar rate for peak hours is P150, non peak is P110 and normal taxi is P100.

😱 And then rushed to somewhere else because I needed to fix something. On my way back, I rode the train. The god forsaken, filthy, smelly, and all the ill fitting words that we could think of to describe Philippines’ MRT. I had no choice, I spent a fortune on the Grabcar earlier 😦

😱 My other teammate needed (yes it is a need for him) to watch the collegiate basketball game Live so he had to take the rest of the day off. So I covered for him, on top of all the month end tasks.

I would say it’s just ok, I’m up for exciting challenges. But I think the train ride gave me a severe headache that Wanted his team to lose (and they did).

😱 The way home was horrible because of the traffic. So tomorrow, I will be walking to and fro the office.

When I’m stuck with a day that’s grey and lonely
I just stick up my chin and grin and say, oh
The sun will come out tomorrow
So you gotta hang on
’til tomorrow, come what may

So to “cure” my headache, and relieve myself of the stress, I’m listening to Idina Menzel.

I hope tomorrow would be a better day.


To counteract the negative vibes caused by the things I listed above, I thought about listing some things that I should be thankful for (even if it was a really bad day):

πŸ€— thankful for another day, that I woke up and am still alive! Okay, I killed a cockroach but at least I did not let it take over me haha!

πŸ€— thankful that I arrived at my destinations safely, despite the traffic and the cramped train.

πŸ€— thankful for friends that understand my mood swings today

πŸ€— thankful that I already claimed my planner – well I claimed it yesterday but had no time to update so here it is!!!

And the color is…….


BROWN!!!! Or well, to be precise: TAN. Hahah!

πŸ€— thankful that I was able to buy gifts for this week’s Kris Kringle (despite my busy schedule)! And I did not overspend! Good thing the malls are now extending their hours.

πŸ€— thankful that my boss has copies of season 2 episodes of Jane the Virgin!! I can watch in the office!! Of course not during office hours lol!

And lastly,

😻 thankful that I saw my crush earlier! We were in the same elevator and he said hi and he told me that he noticed that I’m not posting too much on my Facebook lately!! He noticed that!! My friends didn’t even feel my absence, but this guy did! 😍😍😍😍
