#RandomThoughts: Year-End Party and New Toys

Yesterday was our company’s year end party held at KPub Bbq Restaurant in BGC. Why KPub? From what I’ve heard, it was one of those few places that can accommodate our number. And this year’s theme? Something colorful. To be honest, I’ve had a hard time trying to find something to wear for the event that I decided to stick with a red top. And since it is a barbecue place, it didn’t feel right to dress up to the nines for the night. Though a lot of people really took the effort to doll up. ūüėÄ So here’s what […]

#Random Thoughts: Manic Monday…

For most of us, Monday is the start of the work week. For me, my work week started yesterday. Yep, I was at work on a Sunday. In fact, I was working all day since last Monday. And yes, I didn’t have a weekend because I had work. I wasn’t able to go home to my son. :'( Though I called home Saturday night to talk to him and Skype’d with him yesterday night before my late dinner. Suffice it to say that I miss my little Z so much. Today was the start of our 4-week testing at work. […]

Of Halloween, All Saints’ and All Souls’ Days…

And here I am once again, blogging on the way to the mountain city. Yep, I am going home for the weekend. Good thing that I bought my bus ticket last Monday when I arrived in the big metro. The queue at the ticket booth was so long, it already reached the main highway. There was a time that I don’t go home during these times because of the heavy traffic jams on main thoroughfares as well as the hassle of lining up to buy a ticket or queueing for a chance ride. And besides, I used to enjoy the […]

Wednesday What-nots: 2 Years; Then and Now, etc.

It’s already Wednesday in this side of the world – 2AM. I left work on time because I felt that I was no longer being productive. I was just starting at my screen most of the time – probably trying to get my laptop to do the work for me, haha, I don’t really know. I was out of focus for some reason. Now I am at home and was not really planning to¬†blog but for some reason, the open¬†Chrome tab for WordPress was beckoning. So, here I am, trying to squeeze my brains out for something to post. So […]

Wednesday What-nots

Okay, not so creative title for this post, I know. But I have a lot of random things that I wanted to write about and I don’t think it is really efficient to put them on separate posts. I have something about my little Z, too, but that will be the only exception.   Workweek Craziness I have secured approval last week for a 3-day leave starting tomorrow, Wednesday, until Friday.¬†However, it is a crazy week this week at work due to a lot of transitions going on. So, even if I will be on leave, I will have to […]

When the Thought is Gone

Have you ever had that experience when you are not able to access your blog yet¬†you have this great thought running in your head that you just want to¬†blog about and once you have access to any gadgets¬†that can enable you to post a blog, all thoughts are lost and you are left with this one big empty hole in your head with the question, “now, what?”? Yep, I am in that kind of a loophole right now. Amidst all the emails I needed to respond to at work and all other tasks that I needed to complete, I had […]

Being a Mom

I came home about an hour and a half ago from¬†a long day at work. And when I say long day, I meant about 13 hours long. And I am tired. But my brain’s still way too active for bedtime. You see, I have been working the graveyard shift¬†for almost 8¬†years and¬†then alternated from graveyard shift to midshift and back. For the past few months though, I have been in the midshift, extending into the wee hours in the morning depending on the need. And trust me when I say that 13 hours used to be my normal working hours […]

Blabber Chapter: Another Rant

It’s 1:52AM on my side of the world. And yet I can’t sleep. Been having insomnia attacks lately. I think given the events for these past few days, it was bound to happen. I still can’t forgive myself of losing my backpack, you know. More than the actual monetary value of the things I lost, what I really can’t let go is losing all of my files. 7 years worth of work files plus about 9 years worth of photos. And most of all, losing Z’s first 4 months of photos and videos. Trivia: For Z’s first 3 months, I’ve […]

Blabber Chapter: Midnight Thoughts

As I write this, I am already on my way to Baguio. In fact, I am already along NLEX. And this is the first post that I’ve written using my smartphone so pardon any typo errors. I should be getting some rest because I have a long day ahead of me once I get home. I have appointments scheduled for little Z’s baby dedication. Barely a month to go and I have yet to send the invites, make the save the date video, and come up with little Z’s AVP. Though I am not even sure if there’s a projector […]

Random Thoughts

I’ve been thinking quite a lot lately. I know, I know, I should just let things go and get some sleep before the sun rises again. But hey, sometimes, I can’t help it. I think about everything and nothing. I think about possibilities, make plans, set goals and other what-nots. Well, this activity occupies my so-called idle times of the day (whenever that is). Just some of the things that I’ve been thinking about lately: – I’m still trying so hard to come up with a balance between being a career woman and a mom. When people tell you this […]
