It’s not that I’ve been busy, but…

Here I thought that anyone who’s ever said, “I’m busy!” was just overstating things and giving the impression of their probably self-proclaimed sense of importance.

But yes, I have been busy the past six weeks, I could hardly catch my breath. So what has happened since my last update? Well…

  • I celebrated another birthday for which I am extremely grateful
  • I survived yet another great Manila deluge, which happens oh! every year!
  • Rediscovered old passions – I’m a book and history nut, and there’s nothing I can (nor would change) about it.
  • Spent time with friends, if only to empty my head of plans, worries, and to-dos. Sometimes, you just don’t want to think, full stop.
  • Had people thrown down my path and realised how much I needed them. Some people inspire you to give your very best without knowing it. 
  • Read books and acquired more books than I could possibly read, but who cares?
  • Had THREE haircuts within a span of just four weeks! It’s a record, but please stop before you start judging that I’m depressed. A woman can get a haircut for no emotional reason at all,especially when there’s a really really good ate hairstylist who can whip out a style at a really friendly price point.
  • Missed Pacific Rim at the theaters.
  • Missed Cinemalaya film festival
  • Discovered new art/indie films. Forget Me Not, anyone? I’m just a sucker for walkie-talkie movies.

  • Missed the deadline for enrollment to French language lessons. 
  • Reconnected with an old friend. I still kind of like him, but oh well… 
  • Still wondering what a cronut tastes like. 
  • Still sad that Ben Affleck is the next actor to play Batty instead of Mr. Armitage.
All in all, it’s been quite a nice existence. No dramas, no insane ups and downs, but there’s been no flat-lines either. And so I can say things are — somehow — looking up. And for that I am grateful.
