Entries for February, 2016

I have been lurking around Tabulas' homepage for the longest time now. I couldn't bring myself to write anything. I just feel llike there is nothing extraordinary about my life right now. Well, nothing worth writing about anyway. I guess I have found other mediums to express myself. I am doing some adult coloring stuff and a little bit of photography using my mobile phone/ ipad doing the #366photochallenge project on my instagram.

I am also on a break doing my knovela marathons. This year, I said that for every kseries that I watch, I have to read a book after. But I still do my english tv series though (The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, The Originals, Supergirl...and then now Walking Dead. Still doing the S5 Game of Thrones) and done with the one Tagalog series just last Friday - PSY. Other than these, I don't watch regular TV programs. These days, I'd rather put on my earphones and play my souncloud list while coloring.

Oh, and another thing that is keeping me busy are the little repairs done on our simple home. Hopefully we can transfer by next year. As soon as I figure out where to get the funds for the other stuff that needs to be done on the house like the flooring, grills, gate and a little landscaping. Well, in His perfect time I guess. Meantime, I just do things in bits and pieces.

On the work front, two levels of my upline managers have been removed and I have been directly reporting to the Executive in the US since January. It is quite a challenge. And it's taking a lot of my night sched for meetings and transition stuff. I am still hesitant that this is really for me. There is just so much politicking and favoritism going around. And I am not comfortable in working with such an environment. Until when is one going to be the "apple of the eye" right? It just leaves a bad taste in my mouth and I am not sure how to handle it.

Wow, so apparently there are a lot of stuff to write. Hahaha. When would be the next entry? Your guess would be as good as mine. =)

"When life gets you down, do you know what you've gotta do? Just keep swimming." ~ Dory, Finding Nemo

These days I can hardly keep my head above water. I have been pondering on giving up and moving on. And then my ex-boss sent a compliment via email, it was like a breath of fresh air. It made me want to keep on swimming.

"A couple years from now, everything you're stressing about won't even matter. Keep moving forward."

So true, looking back at my old fb posts. I used to be stressed a lot about work. Now that I have a more flexible time schedule, I am still stressed. I guess I am still adjusting to working around my late night conference calls and being a morning person that I get to work more than I am required to. So stress is really subjective. It is up to us how to manage it.

Even if we don't want to become a face that scolds in someone's memories
To become a stranger who doesn't know how to walk
A flower that is not me
Even I couldn't become a flower that time
I didn't even know how to become a silent bird
before love arrived because I was used to waiting
A storm through the night allows two small rivers to flow down my face
Building a wall in my heart
Compared to the memories that dance with my hand
The most valuable sentence is " I will long for you."
"I will long for you."
"I will long for you."

- Jo Pil's poem "Biscuit Teacher & Star Candy" episode 9
