Loving: having my brother back in town. PB hasn't been back in Manila in forever so it's nice to have him in the house even if it's the worst timing ever with me doing a lot of work for strategic planning. Still, it's nice to see him outside the office -- even if i only saw him in SG last Feb. It's still nice.
Reading: To be honest, I haven't opened a book in the recent weeks other than white papers for work and the NYT innovations report. But I have been meaning to read The Perks of Being a Wallflower and I probably will get around to it when I go on my sort of vacation next week. We shall see.
Watching: As embarrassing as it is to say, I've finally caught up on Arrow, I can't believe i was behind to begin with but now I'm all caught up and my goodness i can't wait for the next season. Obviously, I'm on Team Olicity and I need icons and fic and anything else to soothe this pain while waiting for season 3 to return.
Anticipating: My Baguio trip! Sure, it just so happens to be the week before strat-plan presentations but it's not like i can't work from there and I know I will. But i haven't been to Baguio in forever (read since 2010 -- which is a lifetime for us who used to come up every year -- almost twice a year). I can't wait for the road trip, the cold and the cozying up in layers.
Listening to: The Freaking The Fault in Our Stars soundtrack. Not only was the movie brilliant but the soundtrack kills me every time. Though there are stand out songs, the entire soundtrack is just brilliant. M83, Ed Sheeran, The Indians, Birdy, Charli XCX, everyone! I can listen to that on repeat all day and not get sick. And yes, I have done so.
Planning: For 2015. Sure, technically, I won't be here to fulfil the plans but it's still a daunting task to see where you want to take things next year. And it's not like this year is such a stellar year for me so it'll be a challenge for sure and I hope I don't let anyone down especially since I know I'm not at my best.
Working on: finishing my 2015 presentations in time for pre-presentations to the bosses so I can work on revisions while I'm away on holiday. There's never time for it during office hours, but i'll take what i can and work on it while watching copious amounts of Arrow and Teen Wolf. It's not bad.
Wishing: I can continuously give 110% of myself to work even when I get really jaded and just can't unsee things. I want to act like I did when i first joined the company and that's the toughest part. I need to be motivated and ecstatic and just full of energy again. Not sure what I need to do to achieve that but I know that's where I want to be these next few months. Wish me luck.
