These past few weeks have been crazy. This entire February has been crazy. I miss my bed. I miss sleeping in. I miss being a bum on weekends. I’ve just got back from our Baguio trip around 2 AM then I set off for work around 7 AM. Yep, I’m still alive. Oh yeah, hello February 29!!
I pretty much run myself ragged this month but I’m happy. Tired, but satisfied. The house didn’t burn down when Mom was in Singapore for a quick Valentine’s getaway. Valentine’s weekend with my dork excuse of brothers. My friends and I’s 4D3N Hong Kong trip went off with only few hitches – like delayed flights and getting really lost only once. The Baguio trip with my officemates were cool; I get to know them more as a person other than just the professional image I have of them.
I’m currently working on a lot of travel backlogs – Singapore, Tagaytay, Ilocos, Hong Kong, and now Baguio to name a few. I have thousands of photos to go through and lots of memories to reminisce about. It will take a while to finish it, but I’m in no rush. I might start with the Hong Kong ones first just because I feel like telling those tales of adventures and misadventures I had with my friends. Most of the misadventures are already stated in my Lost in Hong Kong: Culture Shock post.
To add, I’m burned out with all the recent travelling. Gasp. I know. Who would’ve thought I’ll be admitting that? I used to be a real homebody before the travel bug bit me. And by homebody, I mean, I don’t leave the house except for the occasional mall and cinema trips. I guess my body’s missing the comfort of home (and my bed). I actually passed on a Calaguas trip that’s supposed to happen next weekend. And my next confirmed travel is my Singapore trip on late April. I have time to settled back in at home and rest my feet for a while. I’m okay with that.
I’m also thinking of taking a leave from blogging. Because the perfectionist in me likes organization and my blog looks like a mess to me. I want to do a new look for my blog and make sure that my posts are in sync with each other. Sounds difficult but it’s just a thought for now. Or maybe I’ll just do it part by part on weekends so I can still make updates once in a while.
Music wise, The 1975 finally released their second album (!!!) – I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet unaware of it. Seriously. That’s the name of the album. Favorite songs so far are A Change of Heart, The Sound, and Love Me. Favorite lyrics: “You used to have a face straight out of a magazine / Now you just look like anyone / I just had a change of heart.”
Today’s the Oscar’s and I am still rooting for Leonardo di Caprio to win his first Oscar. Seriously. It’s been robbed from him a lot of times already. And frankly, the only reason why I still read updates from that awards show. Mad Max already won a lot of awards as I’m typing up this post (I’m on my lunch break) and I’m happy about that as well. It’s well-deserved.
Update: Five minutes after my post went up, it was announced that Leo won a freaking Oscar! Freaking finally!!! I can’t wait until my work shift is over so I can properly celebrate my baby’s win!!
I usually do my life lately posts in bullets but somehow this ended up in paragraphs. I’m not sure why. Maybe I just feel like being rambling today. I feel like making my future life lately posts in paragraph form, though. Feels more personal and I like that.
