This week is hectic.  One of those weeks that I just want to crawl into bed and hide under the covers. I am actually taking a day off from work, just so I can have some work done.  I don't know what kind of excuse that is, but it's the only way I can have my worksheets done for the mid year assesment. It's just so hard to write assessments in the office.  What with people always going to my cubicle to ask questions.  I haven't written a single word about people who has asked for my feedback.  As in zilch. Time to hit the sweatshop again.

Recently joined One Question. Toni of Wifely Steps started this community for blogger users (they already have one in LJ).  Each of us writes an entry that contains only 1 question.  It can be mundane or utterly reflective.  But it's just one question. Go visit the site if you have time. :)

Had a grand Subic Holiday with my teammates. Being the control freak (that's what they call me!) that I am.  I was in charge of the accomodations and the activities that we will be doing.  Had the reservations for the accomodations confirmed Friday and the activities sent out to those who will be going last Thursday.  Basically, all was pretty set. Luck was not on our side since it rained pretty hard Saturday and Sunday.  Saturday, we went to Ocean Adventure to see the whale and sea lion show.  It was ok, not as good as the one in Sea World but nevertheless, value for the money.  I would have to say that Php400 is money well spent on those shows.  Quite entertaining. :)  We went go karting and row boating.  The go karting was great.  Unfortunately I was pitted against the boys.  I came in 3rd out of the 6 drivers.  Not bad.  :) We also row boated.  I got dripping wet, not just because of the rain but because C was actually hitting us with water.  He used his paddle to put water in our rowboat.  Good thing it rained pretty hard.  Washing away that stagnant water by rain is a good idea. Since it has been raining pretty hard by then, we decided to go to the Upper Mau Inns.  It was recommended by one of my officemates for cheap accomodations.  Cheap it is!  Just Php250 per head.  We stayed in a quoncet, all 12 of us.  Bad thing about it is that the toilets and shower rooms are common to the other quoncets.  One has to go out before you can access the showers.  The girls shower room was really clean that the boys decided that they wanted to take their shower there. ;) Sunday morning, when we woke up, it was raining pretty hard.  We wanted to get started early so that we can have more things to do.  But then the weather did not cooperate.  We just went ahead and went to the JEST camp, had basic survival training and toured the mini zoo around the area.  It was funny seeing my teammates start a fire with just bamboo.  The guy who gave a demo, made it look so easy! I did one thing that I thought I will not do.  I did the zip line!  Imagine me, jumping from a platform several feet above the ground.  It was an exhilirating experience. :)  Will try to post pictures when I get them. :)

Two months!  Blissful. :)

Received a couple of emails that rocked my morning. I love my job.  Don't get me wrong.  The challenges that go with it is enough to keep me busy for a couple of years.  Plus the issues are not the same everytime.  Everyday, it's a different challenge. What I hate about it is that the put me downs are too many and the fixer uppers are few.  When we do something wrong, we are sure to receive notes from the higher ups asking us to find a resolution as soon as possible.  When we do something great, we are just merely doing our job and a simple pat in the back will do.  A good attitude about how one perceives the failures and successes in this job really helps.  If my attitude is one that always goes to self pity mode, I would surely die of depression if I continue doing this job. Maybe it's this way in all jobs.  No one is really completely satisfied with what they are doing.  I have always perceived any issue as a challenge, a venue for me to learn new things.  But the longer I stay here, the higher it is in the organization that sends me nastygrams. Maybe I am right.  They just love me so much and have faith in me that they always give me the hard ones to figure out.  And that the better I do at this job, the more they raise their expectations of me. If only I can figure out this one...

Pakopya nga Mitch: I am: sleepy. Was unable to get my 6 hours last night. I miss: playing badminton every weekend. I miss running also. I want: to exercise more. Linisin ko kaya lahat ng sulok ng bahay namin? I have: changed my surname in my work email signature. I fear: snakes. Even the fake ones they sell on the street gives me goosebumps I play: pekwa really well. When I was 10, my aunts and I, together with my cousins, will play during summer afternoons. We played for money and I almost always win a big pot. Role models ang mga auntie ko e. I hear: typing. Para bang galit kami sa keyboard. I care: about being fair to everyone. I smile: when I see my husband. He's really the cherry on top of my dessert. :) I love: my husband. Syempre. I think: I need to buy new shirts. Or maybe lose weight. I always: lose in raffles. I was once so close to winning a laptop in one of the raffles here in the office. My ticket only differed by 1 digit from the winner. I dance: when I am happy. Or is that jumping for joy? I am not: a small. I have to remind myself that sometimes. I sing: the last song I heard. I am what you call a last song syndrome singer. I cry: almost everytime I watch A Walk to Remember. I wish: I am more matipid. DA POGI tries his best to control me, but electronics are just my waterloo. I keep: putting aside sorting pictures from the wedding. I really should get started. I can: cook more than 1 dish now. I can't: swim. Still on my list of to do's before I hit 30. I write: recipes, shopping lists in my palm almost everyday. I win: when I make my hubby laugh at my antics. I lose: weight when I am not so stressed. I am a stress eater. I smell: bananas. Must be coming from my trashbasket. I confuse: my left with my right. I have the Joseph Estrada syndrome. I need: clean the loveshack when I get home. Haven't sweeped in a while.

I was never a do-gooder. Or at least I don't show people I am a do-gooder. I have been tagged many things. Words that may be hurtful if said to other people. Mean, masungit, mataray, suplada, b*tch, I've been called all those things. And maybe more. I tend to forget some of the words that they use to call me. It doesn't bother me much. I know that I am a decent human being, I don't cause harm to people, at least, intentionally. The things I say and the things I do does reflect who I really am. I am honest. Brutally to a fault. I don't dilly-dally. I say what I think and I do what I say. It makes it hard for me to deal with people who are too sensitive because I may not be as sensitive with regards to their feelings. I treat people equally. I have just started the art of diplomacy, and sometimes, I fail so miserably that I don't get why I need to be diplomatic or nice to people. What is the point of all this? I don't know. Maybe I'm just trying to defend myself why I act this way. They might've reached me already. Or maybe, wala lang...

I super enjoyed Mean Girls. Lindsay Lohan is just so cute. Can't believe that she was the same little girl in Parent Trap. She *developed* really well... :D Anyways, it's just a story of cliques in high school. Story was fairly predictable but I enjoyed it very much. The scenes are just really laughable. Regina George's mom is just so trying hard to be pa tweetums and regain her lost youth. Damian is just so adorable. He's just "too gay to function normally". Anyways, on a completely housewifey front, I am now in a dilemma. How do I take away the smell of onions and garlic in my kitchen? Since our unit is small, it permeats throughout the living area. And it is really noticeable when I enter the door. I usually light a candle when I get in and that takes away the smell for a while. I want to take that smell away. Is it ok to keep onions and garlic inside the ref?!

I will not rave about Spiderman. They are all doing it. Even DA POGI is raving about it. Just have to ask though, what is the need for Kirsten Dunst to have nipples showing through her dresses? And James Franco is scary. Yun lang. * On a non-spidey topic, I had a haircut yesterday which drastically changed my looks. After more than 10 years (I can recount how long exactly!), I have bangs again. Blame it on Jennifer Aniston. :D

My palm has been revived. With the wedding preparations in full gear, I forgot to charge my palm pilot for 1 whole month causing me to lose my data. The last sync that I did was in my old laptop which has been replaced with a new one. I think I have a better palm pilot now. Everything is better organized. Though I lost my contact list, I was able to get the information from my friends and rebuild it. Plus, I have way cooler apps that I had before. I used to have problems with AvantGo but the reset of my palm miraculously fixed it. Now I am able to browse web content offline. Beats buying a newspaper if I can download inquirer from the net. Now, if only I can fix my IR syncs...
