but i say balance

September is upon us. If we were in Manila, it would already herald the start of the Christmas season, because BER-months equals holiday. Yes, we start that early. But now that I'm in Singapore, it doesn't start until way later.

Well technically, I am on an indefinite holiday which should excite me but it also definitely scares me more than anything -- because I'm that kind of person. I love vacations and I love not doing anything but I also like money. And earning so there's a bit of a disconnect.

I like that I've been able to clean my room though -- you accumulate a lot in a couple of months and I hate clutter. I got to do my laundry -- though I should be doing this weekly. I got to finish my Gilmore Girls catch-up and now I'm so ready for November 25. And I got to chill at home and go to mass more and see my siblings and train for my 10K in December.

Mostly though, I need to be able to recalibrate myself and my thinking so that when I do begin again, I'm not just work work work work working and not having time to do all the stuff I actually do like to do. I clearly have no sense of balance.

Still, for now, I'll try my best to enjoy and soak it up and recharge and rethink my routines. It won't be easy for me -- living her life by checklists, but I'll have to try.

Happy September everyone!
