|Going back to an empty office was sad, but I was glad I was able to touch base with TWO of my best friends whom I hadn't talked to in forever. I finally saw Con after a few weeks of working in the same network. And Thank goodness for Lovers in Paris, as it gave me and Lee-Ann a chance to talk again! If it wasn't for the crazy (not good crazy) pilot episode, I wouldn't have called her up in need of someone to comment with on the phone.
||The office was less empty today but still lots of folks missing and some even unaccounted for. It's going to be hard to rebuild from scratch. In better, but more selfish news, I finally got paid! For the first time! I've never really used an ATM machine in my life (I know, laugh now) so I was all excited to check it this afternoon and though it was an underwhelming experience, it still feels surreal that I'm 'working.' Also, taxes. Wow. That's a lot.
||While I'm not exactly allowed to complain, my siblings are enjoying their week long break from school (as their schools are used as relief/refugee centers for the victims of Ondoy). I wish I could volunteer like Pio and Pietro are doing. I feel really proud of them for helping out. And so as a reward for me working instead of relaxing at home (if I were still a student), I had my picture with Jake Cuenca, who is so very pretty in real life. Still reeling.
||I'm not part of the sales team but I eat with Tasha and them for lunch so when they surprised their boss for his birthday last week, they invited us and though I could never be in ad sales, it was so heartwarming to see them all so bonded with each other and their super amazing boss. He's the kind of guy that gives tough love and is really hard on them, but it's obvious how much he loves them. It was so much fun and I got full too!
