|Take it from me||[37 Down/15 To Go!]|
[-] September seems to be event season at work. Though they're not MY events, I have to attend them and though we had fun at the recent Beefcake Festival, I feel bad cause we were apparently remiss in our duties. Oh well, there's always a next time to make up for it, yes?
[+] I don't think I've said it enough but finally, I'm really seeing the value of teammates. From being in a one-man team (plus the boss), to having two more girls with me (who are absolutely adorable), it's always nice to know you're not alone going through the motions of office life. Silly but true.
[+] I know this is late but watch me catch-up. Hope everyone's having a good week so far.
Start the week right with planning? Well, sort of. At least it felt like a productive day complete with laughs with the girls. I totally forgot that it was the 12th of the month too so my pictures were all belated, later in the afternoon, but it's all good. I got to get out early, go to the gym (and not feel too tired) so all in all, fantastic.
When I get home though, somehow I'm so pooped. I know I've been commuting most of my adult life but I really do miss the school bus and the luxury of just sitting down and being driven around. I wish there was a school bus for the office. I know, it sounds crazy but the commute really tires me out.
I miss lunch meetings. I don't usually take any just because it takes up a lot of time but the boss took me along so we had lunch at this hotel with the best buffet ever. Though I didn't eat too much (the body hurts for a reason), I did have more than my usual fare and somehow I feel like I'm going to pay for this tomorrow.
It's crazy how work can pile up even after just one day out. I tried my best to follow the list of things I said I wanted to do, but obviously none of that came into fruition and I ended up staying in late. It's all good though, I'm sure all those early outs were going to rear its ugly head so best to balance it out.
I woke up with the worst stomach ache ever. I don't get sick with fever or colds or whatever else, but when my stomach acts up? I'm totally screwed. And this is one of those days. But I tried to solider on and still went to work (lots of important planning today, so I couldn't miss it). I feel like I should have stayed home though and just chilled.
I don't know how I manage, but I do survive the day of planning though i feel like puking after my mini-nap during lunch break. In the cab on the way home, it takes so much will for me not to puke and by the time I get home, I literally sleep in front of the toilet to make sure I don't throw up anywhere. Luckily, I don't and a good night's rest is all I need.
I wake up refreshed and feeling a little better though still not at my best but I had to go to work today just because it's my last planning day (for the week -- one to go next week) and I can't miss this one (two brands and all). Plus, the work event tonight was something I couldn't miss.
Speaking of that work event, I didn't realize there were so many hot men in the country. Sure, most of them were half-sies (barely any pure Pinoys) but their bodies were quite the spectacle. it's funny how i felt like we were objectifying the men and yet at the same time totally enjoying it. Who are these men's mothers and how did they spawn such hotness? I wonder, really.
You know how I try making a list of the things I want to accomplish for the day and nothing gets done. And it's not even because I'm lazy for the weekend, but because new stuff keeps coming in that's 'more urgent' and I can't not attend to it? Thus the reason I stay late in the office, to actually get the things I want to get done, done.
Today though, I said, to hell with it and I left at a decent hour (pushing back the list for Monday -- I will regret, this, I know) so I could head to the gym. because really, if I don't make time for that, then this will all be for nothing right? So I did. And it felt good.
I woke up extra early to drive my little sister to another of her entrance exams and though traffic was bad, I'm glad I got a head start on the weekend. I caught up on the fall TV season premieres (so many new shows) and just lazed around.
The afternoon was saved for the annual UAAP Cheer Dance Competition and though I have very little school spirit, this event always makes me feel like I'm part of something just because our school actually has a fighting chance at winning. And though I was terribly nervous the entire time, I'm glad we brought home the gold again. UP Fight!
If last week's craziness was any indication, this weekend was pretty tame and I like it that way. I'm glad I was able to just stay in my vegetative state, sleeping in after mass and waking up in the late afternoon, to sleep some more. Not productive, but totally restful.
Of course, no matter how much rest you get in, it'll never be enough and I'm raring for the next long weekend again. I don't know how soon that is -- it seems too far away, but let's start a countdown, yes?
