Planning to transfer place of livingノ

I made up my mind. I would really want to transfer from my place here in Pasig (MMG); I badly need some sort of space. As I mentioned before I was living with my other co-employees and almost with my Filipina boss just up stair our office. The company provided us our board and lodging to be comfortable.

But since, my house is just in the premises of my work, there some certain limits that being touched. What I mean is, I felt that I cannot breathe anymore coz I have to work 24 hours a day since my office is just around.

Also, there are things that I cannot control like I already felt very uneasy coz some of my co-employees were seems annoyed towards me in the reason or reasons that I really don't know why.

My best friends tell me before that we cannot avoid jealousy and competition in the office. Though in my heart I'm not feeling that way, still it's hard for me so my remedy is to transfer a place.

On Wednesday, I would talk with my boss when she comes back from her out of town trip to have her consent. Her approval means a lot to me so I'm praying that thing will turn out just fine.

Trying to work effectively…

I woke up by 7:30am and I was in a rush coz if not I would be late. Unfortunately, I was late. I got up from my bed too late coz my migraine haunted me last night that’s why I could not sleep that early.

Anyways, I enter our office by 8:20am, as I sit in my chair and in front of my computer, unfortunately again, I cannot booth my computer. That is why I guess this would not be a good day for me.

I ask my co-employees to do something, so after 30 minutes; he would able to open it. I almost started my work at around 9:00am. By 12:00 noon we took our lunch, while eating, I let myself watching TV to at least refresh my mind and myself.

I reported again in the office by 1:00pm. Then I went out by 8:00pm. Actually, in as much as I would like to be effective in my work, my senses were really not working. I guess, I’m just tired enough. I cannot review also after work coz I know that I could absorb whatever I should study. So by 9:00pm after eating dinner and cleaning myself, I lied down to my bed and just sleep and hoping to have a better day tomorrow.

Making an important decision...

It was already one week after I received a proposal from our chairmen and chairwomen (called Hermanos and Hermanas) who are our appointed leaders in the community particularly our church in organizing our yearly "Flores de Mayo" (Flowers of May - Saturday) and Santa Cruzan (Holy Cross - Sunday).

It is a festive event in our town with a main purpose of honouring our Sacred Jesus Christ and His Mother Blessed Virgin Mary. In this manner, ladies will be requested to parade all over the town proper and wearing a nice, elegant and prominent gown to show the different personality and beauty of Mary.

Hence, I felt very uneasy coz our leaders was asking me to be the Reyna Elena (Queen of Eternity) in the Santa Cruzan wherein it is the highest position in that event that is why I was very worried for almost one week coz I have to make a decision whether I would accept the offer or not.

There are so many things that worries me like first, Reyna Elena would be needed to declaim in front of so many people a 3 pages long narration about Mary and Jesus Christ, and I really don't know if I have the confidence to do that coz I have a sickness called nervous attack.

Secondly, I am now studying and reviewing in preparation for my board examination which will be held also on May this year, so I don't think if I have a time to prepare for that event.

Lastly, I have this fear of walking all over the town proper especially facing so many people in a nice dress and afraid of hearing different criticism from them. To lessen my worries and help me to decide, I ask my best friends, family and close relatives about their opinion. And I got a unanimous answer from them.

All of them advised me to accept the offer. They told me that it is a rare opportunity to be the main part of honouring Blessed Virgin Mary. Also all of them encourage me to boost my confidence and they promise to help me in preparing in that event.

Personally, I have this instinct that maybe God is helping me to face my fears and build my personality. Also, I think that this would be one of the best ways for me to serve Her. So by, 3:00pm, I gave my message to the leaders informing them that I finally accepted their offer. Maybe it would be hard for me in way due to my limited time but I just leave everything to GOD coz whatever happens, I know that He will guide me and bless me along the way.

Having some girl's night out...

I set my alarm clock by 5:00am to wake me up but still I stood up in my bed after 30 minutes. By that time I already took a bath and by 6:30 in the morning, am now ready going to my review school. From my house, I rode a tricycle going to Crossing, Mandaluyong, after that I walked to the MRT Shaw Boulevard Station. I went down to Quezon Avenue Station then I rode an FX public vehicle to bring me in my school that is located in P. Campa St., España, Manila just near University of Sto. Thomas.

When I enter our room my professor was already there and was starting lecturing about our subject that is Business Law. By 12:00 noon, it's our lunch time so I and my friend went to our usual lunch place that is Chowking and we just ordered value meal there.

By 1:00pm, we went back again to our room. Our review start again and it ended by 5:30pm. After that my classmate and I parted ways already coz I am now going to Baywalk, Roxas Boulevard [MMG Map: M-S(B-2|c-2,3)] coz I have a dinner night out with my two best friends.

I rode a jeepney going there and I would able to meet my best friends by 6:30pm due to too much traffic in Quiapo [MMG Map: M-N (C-3|a-3)]. Anyways, because it was our first time to go to Baywalk together we really pampered ourselves, we eat in a mini restaurant there name Antology wherein the waiter and the waitress were all “unano” (which means small people measuring only 2 to 3ft tall).

Upon eating we also enjoyed listening and watching to the live band. After we eat, we decided to walk around the place and it's the time for us to tell to each other about our stories coz it's almost two months since we haven't talk. We again smile, laughed, and also give each other's advice about our problems and difficulties.

The ambiance in Baywalk gave us new scenery and life experience. And because we were so busy talking we haven't noticed that the time is running so we would able to leave Baywalk by 10:45 in the evening. We happily parted ways and I would able to reach home by 11:30pm. Gosh! It was one of my unforgettable moments.
