Oh my God. I cannot wait to have a proper vacation! It's been a tiring month mixing work & school encountering tons of problems related to school and tossed with enthusiastic students who are eager to learn a new language. I enjoy what I am doing but right now I just want to have a long holiday and to be away from this city. My boyfriend and I have been doing early bookings for our holiday trip this December since it's a peak season, and for God knows what it is going to be a hassle to book on the latter part of the year. We wouldn't want to be left with such expensive places to stay in!

Right now the only thing on my mind is to be in a balcony with a beautiful sea blue ocean right in front of me drinking banana shake and having the time of my life. Oh such 8 dreadful months to go! Now, the only thing that I should really focus on is my summer for the next 5 weeks. What in the world am I going to do if I am so busy with my part-time job? The only thing thing that motivates me is how much people I am continuously inspiring & helping and of course, the money.  

Lalalala. I have to get ready for school now. Ugh, physics class. Damn you.

We All Go Through That Phase

There are some several changes that I've been experiencing for months now and one of them is how I dress up. I think I've officially ditched platform shoes, stilettos and such to sneakers, flats and etc. I don't know why the sudden change from high-fashion-ish to comfort lifestyle. I guess I was bored already and I need the change.

Here are some of the items that I recently bought: a Hurley backpack and DC Bristol Le shoes both from Bratpack, Greenbelt 5. I seriously adore that shop ever since the sudden change in my life. I just want to buy all those Roxy bikinis and dresses and everything! 

Right now I am high on traveling and my adrenaline towards it is so indescribable. Hence, my home page is Cebu Pacific Air. 

Ever since I got my new job (the first one too), I've been learning the art of valuing money. I've been kuripot and I seriously don't mind repeating clothes over and over again. I am already in that maturity stage that money doesn't grow on trees and never ever spend money that you don't have. With this conclusion, should I still be called "The Little Big Spender"? In my opinion, no. However, I still have to carry that name til' I grow older but doesn't mean I have to live it up to it. Haha. How confusing. Well, the main reason why I cannot leave the title behind is because I AM "The Little Big Spender". I am known for that and it hurts! Lol.

On the lighter note, I am looking forward to my future trips this year: Davao (again), Boracay and maybe more... I would really love to go to Sagada and Batanes as well but the busy schedule from school & work and the budget are such big obstacles!

The Office Spouse

There are so much things I want to do: Read a book, fix my room & closet, practice sketching and so much more. However, I cannot seem to do all of these and end up watching series and going on social networking sites endlessly.

They can be tedious but it's already a nature for me to do it without even thinking about it. Last Sunday, I had my second day of work. Yes, I went to the office on a Sunday to work. They had to take our photos taken to be displayed somewhere. Again, I cannot write down such details for it is confidential.

Then I see a certain guy who works there. Don't worry, my boyfriend knows about this "guy" who I find cute. Okay, cute. No harm in that. Don't think maliciously. However, this isn't just a "guy" because his nationality is same as our boss' nationality & pretty much he is in a high position of the company. Let's just say... he has an important role.

Anyway, so during work the desk where I and some of my new found friends where at is just a bit across his desk. I had a good view of him and from my observation, he really has nice arm muscles. I seriously hope they won't find this blog or else they'll know I am talking about.

But that's about it. The farthest that I can go to is look at him. I don't want him or anything, I just really think he is an attractive looking man. Yum.

So while my new co-worker and I were listening to a lecture Mr. "Guy" walked in and looked at him. My co-worker looked at me and smiled so I smiled too. Our trainer saw our smiles and already knew what we were both thinking... Oh no, second day of work and I'm already busted. LOL!

I shall end this topic right now before my boyfriend freaks out! Don't worry boo, no malice :-) Have you heard of office spouse? Haha! Just kidding. Soon enough, I won't be seeing him again anyway.

I'm too in love with my boyfriend. We go together like butter and hagelslag :-)

While rest of my friends are in Subic enjoying their wonderful break (een beetje jealous), I am here being a busy & lazy bee. The only reason why I'm not in Subic right now is because I have an important Physics quiz & experiment on Wednesday. I can leave right after school but then I'd have to go back early Saturday because I have work again. Yes, there is no such holiday this Saturday at my work.

I caught the sight of my book and had the urge to read. So I'll keep you guys posted. Sayonara.

Sunday, April 1, 2012


It's around 1 in the morning already and I'm still up watching It Started With A Kiss. I also feel like talking about what happened to me earlier this afternoon.

So I had my first day at work, I'm still at the orientation/training stage. It was interesting to know more about the job I'm getting myself into. I rather keep this work confidential for I cannot really share more things about it. I was told not to share much much details, so yes. I feel like an undercover spy for some odd reason.

I met new people today, met some of the bosses and all that. I'm still overwhelmed by the fact that I will earn my own through real hard-work. I am happy with the salary too, good enough for me.

At least I can save up for my own plane tickets and probably win my credit card back. I am grateful that my parents are happy for me. I am proud of myself too for I've been seriously focusing on my priorities for these past few months.

I was supposed to go on a big journey this summer, but my mother didn't let me. I cried a bit but I understood her reasons. To me, those beautiful places will always be there. There are so much time for it, so why hurry?

At least I will have more time for my studies and work. I can earn and save up more money for the future. I don't want to bother my parents anymore for such leisure, I want them to enjoy their own hard earned money for themselves.

I guess I am growing up. I am happy that I don't have the feeling to be bratty if my mom says no to this and that. Labag man sa kalooban ko pero deep inside naiintindihan ko. I am going to sacrifice so much this year and that is no problem at all. I know I am going to miss on alot of things, but hey that's life.  You need to sacrifice to make other people happy. Sometimes we should really sacrifice for our own good too.

You do realize that our parents have sacrificed so much just for us?

I am satisfied and happy with what I have. I have nothing to complain about anymore.  I am excited what this year is going to offer, but I am really looking forward for December.
