Friday Currently

Sneaking a WordPress Blog Post while at work. 🙂

Life has been stressful lately. I’ve been pre-occupied with many things — some I have mentioned on my previous blogs and others, I think I wouldn’t write about anymore.

I’ve been asking myself when I’m going to write again. Whenever I try to log-on to my blog, I often find myself procrastinating and coming up with different excuses not to. So, now that I have a 30-minute free time in the office, I will take this opportunity to update this blog.

CURRENTLY 

Reading updates on our Slack and Asana. I’m on stand-by for any new tasks that will be assigned to me today.

Writing this blog entry. I’m glad that I don’t need to worry about my news task because I already finished it yesterday. Yay!

Listening to how my colleague is conducting her class. I can also hear the sound of my mini-fan and some typing keyboard sounds. :))

Thinking about my allowance until payday. Critical wallet days is real.

Smelling nothing. I usually smell coffee at this time but I decided to cut my instant coffee habit because I gained weight. I’m starting a water only diet today.

Wishing for another long holiday where I can do things freely. Like read a book, play computer and mobile games, go to the beach or discover new places or restaurants, write a blog entry or a story update, sleep more, go to a gig, etc. Something that won’t require work and chores.

Hoping to finish my tasks that are due soon. I don’t want any backlogs. I don’t want to be the cause of delay in the office. I’m hoping for a stress-free day today. 

Wearing a simple dress and a pair of flats for today’s work.

Loving my free time. I got to write something today. Yay!

Wanting more alone time. I need space and pamper time but payday is so far away. 😩

Needing more time to write and enjoy life. Stress is destructing me little by little.

Feeling tired of people’s BS and BV. I just want to accomplish many things today at work and be free when I leave for the weekend.

The Sunday Currently Vol. 11

Weekend is almost over and that means that my 3-day leave is already done. Actually, Sunday has just begun, but I’m writing this now because I may not have enough time to write later.

I spent most of my 3-day leave at home. Doing house chores and enjoying a bit of my me time. I spent half of it writing some updates on Twisted, catching up on some Korean TV series, playing some games and most of it in oversleeping and not sleeping on time.

Not very healthy, huh?

I haven’t posted much of my Sunday happenings because I got veerrryy lazy and I just didn’t feel like writing anything at all. But, I’m back. So, let’s get started.

Here’s my Sunday Currently:

Reading

It really has been ages since I’ve written anything here. I’m already on Chapter 23, which is about Valentine. I can feel the ending of this book and it’s taking me longer than expected because I’ve started reading a Filipino version of 50 Shade of Grey. At the same time, I’m also trying to read the English version on my tablet.

Listening

I can still hear the vibrations of the electric fan, and the voice over on the TV.  

Thinking

Thinking about the upcoming grammar test. I haven’t read anything or reviewed for it. I only have less than a week to start reading and reviewing.

Smelling

I can smell the scent of soup and shampoo because I just took a shower.

Wishing and Hoping

STILL Wishing and Hoping that this week would be more productive and less stressful. I hope I’ll be able to survive the working week without slacking or getting tired of going to work.

I think I’ve been writing this for a few weeks already and it still hasn’t changed. It’s slowly becoming my mantra. 

I’m also wishing and hoping that I’d get through this week without feeling so negative about things. I hope that the test won’t bother me that much so I can still work on the things that I need to concentrate on better.

I also hope and wish that I pass the test with flying colors. 🙂

Wearing

Wearing a long red sleeveless nightgown to bed.

Loving

Loving that I was able to relax this week. I feel quite energized to work and I miss my team! 🙂

Wanting

 I want to have this theme done already. At the same time, I just want to get the test done and over with.

Needing

I need to pay my bills in full. Seriously, I don’t want to have any problems with my budget anymore. It sucks.

Feeling

Feeling excited to be with friends again. Looking forward to the salary day. Looking forward to chatting with my students. Feeling nervous about the test. So, yeah.. mixed emotions.

The Sunday Currently Vol. 10

THIS IS ORIGINALLY POSTED ON WWW.CHESKINITA.COM

Happy father’s day!

The past week was very challenging but I was able to get through it. June is halfway done and that means that the grammar test is up. So, here’s my latest Sunday currently!

Reading

I was able to get past Magnus Bane’s chapter in The City of Bones. It’s already half of the year and yes, I’m not yet done in re-reading it. I’m now at Hotel Dumort, still the 2nd part of the book but I’m taking these baby steps as progress in my reading quest. 🙂

Listening

Aside from the usual vibrations of the electric fan and the sound of my keyboard tapping… My current earworm is Drag Me Down by One Direction. Nope, I’m not a Directioner but this all started when I was listening to Love Yourself, Hands to Myself and Perfect by Kaya May and Landon Austin on Spotify. 

Thinking

Thinking about the upcoming grammar test. I haven’t read anything or reviewed for it. I still have less than two weeks to hustle but I got caught up with so much things to do. 

Smelling

I can smell the scent of Koji San on my skin.

Wishing and Hoping

STILL Wishing and Hoping that this week would be more productive and less stressful. I hope I’ll be able to survive the working week without slacking or getting tired of going to work.

I think I’ve been writing this for a few weeks already and it still hasn’t changed. It’s slowly becoming my mantra. 

I’m also wishing and hoping that I’d get through this week without feeling so negative about things. I hope that the test won’t bother me that much so I can still work on the things that I need to concentrate on better.

Wearing

Wearing a short black flowery nightgown to bed.

Loving

Loving that I was able to enjoy the weekend with Ino. Our plan to officially celebrate at Hampton Gardens was a success! 

Wanting

 I want to have this theme done already.

Needing

Needing more time to prepare for my test. I also need to start preparing for our wedding.

Feeling

Feeling a bit upset that Ino hasn’t done anything about the wedding preps lately. I know that he’s busy with finding a job and getting his requirements settled. However, I’m just getting tired with hearing “I’ll do that this weekend.” but it takes so long before it gets done. I also feel quite disappointed because he promised that he will request for his CENOMAR this payday but he forgot.

I really want to be a very understanding girlfriend but as a human, I think I am also entitled to feel these things. The worst feeling in the world is getting your hopes up on people to keep their promises but they keep on forgetting what they have said or intended to do.

The Sunday Currently Vol. 9

It’s June 12! Philippine’s Independence Day!

I don’t have much to say but I’m doing this because it’s a Sunday once again. 🙂

Reading

I haven’t done any reading this past few days.  I was pretty occupied with gaming that’s why I haven’t read anything interesting. 

Listening

My current earworm is Randomantic by James Reid. Specifically the part “Haharanahin kita, san man tayo magpunta, yung tipong kahit wala lang
O kaya biglang may breakfast in bed, just to keep you interested
Lahat ay dahil wala lang (wala lang)
I just wanna do simple random things to say “I love you”
Ohh ohh I love you”

Thinking

Thinking about the big move on the 32nd floor, bills to pay for the upcoming payday and how this week will turnout. Overthinking? Yes.

Smelling

I can smell some fruity scent in the room.

Wishing and Hoping

STILL Wishing and Hoping that this week would be more productive and less stressful. I hope I’ll be able to survive the working week without slacking or getting tired of going to work.

Wearing

Wearing a black spaghetti-strapped dress and a pair of shorts because we’ll be sleeping in a few hours.

Loving

Loving that I was able to finish my misschesca‘s featured images and tags!! That means, I only have to re-calibrate my tags for this blog and hopefully, Ino can help me out with the theme soon. 🙂

Wanting

 I want to rest some more ’cause all I did was clean the house and not really take a rest. 😩 I also want this week to be less stressful, more enjoyable and remarkable, and more interesting.

Needing

Needing more napkins! JK. 🙂 Groceries! I need to buy toiletries. I need to paymy bills in full. I also need to pamper myself but I still don’t have the means. đŸ˜„ And, Oh! I still need an extension of my weekend. 

Feeling

Feeling mixed emotions. I’m tired, sleepy and hungry.

The Sunday Currently Vol. 8

Woah! Where did the time go? It’s Sunday again (in another part of the world!) It’s practically a Monday, 1:46 AM, but because I forgot to make my Sunday Currently and I’m not yet sleepy, I decided to make one for fun.

Reading

I’m still reading The City of Bones. I’m on Chaper 11 which is a chapter about Magnus Bane. I just finished reading polandbananasBOOKS‘  Shadowhunters TV series review and her reactions about how stellar The Mortal Instruments series is made me want to read more and explore the downworlders’ world.

Listening

The vibrations of the electric fan and the humming of the air conditioner are still keeping me company at this hour.

Thinking

Thinking about how the week will turn out. We have a whole day workshop tomorrow and it sucks. Basically, I’m thinking about the coming work week and I can’t wait for the next weekend. 

Smelling

I can smell my hair conditioner because I just took a shower a few minutes ago.

Wishing and Hoping

Wishing and Hoping that this week would be more productive and less stressful. I hope I’ll be able to survive the working week without slacking or getting tired of going to work.

Wearing

Wearing a short black nightgown because we’ll be sleeping in a few hours.

Loving

Loving that I was able to finish my backlogs and that I’m on page 10 of misschesca. That means, I only have 3 pages left to edit before I move on to this site’s tags. :))

Wanting

Wanting for this week to be less stressful. I want more time to relax. I need more time to enjoy and just stare at nothingness and worry less about life.

Needing

Needing more motivation to go to work. Seriously, I’m getting bored with how redundant and habitual my work is becoming. 

Feeling

Feeling relieved because I have already uploaded the photos that I was meaning to post. Although, the reviews were a little sabaw, but at least I was able to finish it. 🙂

The Sunday Currently Vol. 7

It’s another Sunday! Ino and I just got back from Pulilan, Bulacan. It was a rainy week and according to the news, the rainy season has arrived!

Reading

I’m still reading Chapter 10 of Part 2 of The City of Bones. I know that it has been months since I re-read it and I haven’t finished it since. I’m also reading JamilleFumah’s latest chapter of Indecent Proposal on Wattpad. 

Listening

The vibrations of the electric fan and the humming of the air conditioner are keeping me company at this hour.

Thinking

Thinking about my smartphone, Ino’s latest decision in his career, going to work alone, the rainy days, my future plans. Yup! Overthinking as of the moment.

Smelling

I can’t smell anything in the room. Nothings stands out

Wishing and Hoping

Wishing and Hoping that this week would be better. I hope that things will work out fine and that the problems will be resolved.

Wearing

Wearing a yellow daster. It really feels comfortable most especially when you’re about to sleep. :)

Loving

Loving that I passed the grammar test. :) Also, loving that I was able to update my blog (kahit papaano.)

Wanting

Wanting for this week to be less stressful. I want more time to relax. I need more time to blog. A week by myself? I mean a week at home alone. Haha! I miss having a me-time.

Needing

Needing more motivation to go to work. Seriously, I’m getting bored with work. I also need more motivation to do my weekly/ monthly schedule.

Feeling

Feeling bitin because I didn’t get to enjoy the weekend as I want it to be. I didn’t have enough time to be online, didn’t have enough time to update stuff. Medyo badtrip because I didn’t get to enjoy my weekend in my own way. Instead nag-laba ako, konting online, tinamad, tapos eto

My Version Of The Sunday Currently Vol. 6

vol6

So, It’s 12:47 A.M. It’s already Sunday but I can’t get myself to sleep. I’m about to wake up and prepare for work in 7 hours or so but I think I really need to clear my mind.

The past week has been very tough for me. And like always, I decided not to divulge every heartbreaking thing that happened. I wish to move forward and bring those memories in the past and acknowledge it as an experience learned in the present and future.

Some of the reasons why I haven’t posted in a long time is my lack of time and because of that I have made a major decision. I didn’t go to work last Friday, August 7, 2015, because I have to think things through.

I can’t say that I was really sick but I was so tired. In fact, I feel so burnt out. I decided to quit my two-hour overtime work. I can’t say that it’s irrational but all I know is that I have been complaining that I’m getting tired from time to time. And even going to the gym, hasn’t make up for those feelings. I realized that I needed a break.

I didn’t say that I want to quit my job, I just meant that I need to give some time for myself. I know that there’s a lot to lose, considering that I still need to pay three months worth of debt and I have to close some of my accounts in the billing department, but I just have to. They will give me up to two weeks or thirty days to process my resignation and I guess, that will be enough to cover my bills and the debts that I still need to pay.

If I must admit… yes, I got very depressed upon not getting the team leader post and I finally realized that I’m done. I’m so hurt and broken that I realized that I need to let some of my dedication in my work go. I’ve been serving this company for a couple of years and it might be short, but I’ve been with them for more than 55 hours a week. I guess, this is my body and mind’s way of saying that I had enough.

I felt really discouraged and shattered after putting too much effort in something that I’ve spent most of my life (career-wise) on. I guess, this would lessen the tension that I have and the bitterness that I feel towards work.

I will still keep the weekend OT but that’s it.

Now off to the main agenda:

Currently….

READING

On the lighter side of things, I have already picked up my pace in Kiera Cass’s The Selection. In my TSC Vol.  4 or 5, I was stuck at Chapter 7. It took me quite a while to really enjoy it until I finished the first book. I was able to spend most of my leisure time at the office in reading The Elite and now I’m on Chapter 8 of The One. YAZ, I’m enjoying it already.

The Selection is like the Matched trilogy by Allie Condie (the banquet and the matchmaking) with a little hint of Divergent by Veronica Roth (the caste system – particularly on how they were grouped, and the factions), and a portion of Delirium by Lauren Oliver (the rebels, Pandemonium and Requiem).

For me, The Selection is a Dystopian Cinderella themed book that showcases elements of different Dystopian books that I have fallen in love with over the years. It may not be as action packed as The Vampire Academy, The Bloodlines series or Divergent trilogy but the romantic part of it somehow makes up for it.

Some people describe it as The Bachelor meets The Hunger Games minus the bloodshed, but since I haven’t read the THG trilogy and I haven’t watched a full episode of The Bachelor, I can’t really say if I agree or disagree.

So that’s what I think about The Selection.

WRITING

I just finished writing my resignation letter for the OT. I just hope that I won’t forget to print it tomorrow.

LISTENING

I just turned off the TV and my YouTube is on but I didn’t play any videos. I’m currently listening to the hum of the electric fan in my condo unit.

THINKING

I’m not thinking about anything anymore. I have been worried for a long time and I have already put my thoughts into words. I’m wondering if I made the right decision, but I think it will be for the better. So, yeah I’m gonna be ready soon.

SMELLING

Allergic rhinitis is my bestfriend today. I have been sneezing several times but the good thing about it is that it has stopped. Now, I can’t smell anything because of my stuffy nose.

WISHING

For now I wish that I will clear my debts this year. If it’s possible, I want to clear my debts by November. I wish that this decision is right and that I will gain a lot from it.

WEARING

My pink skull tank top for bed.

LOVING

Myself for not giving up when I thought about killing myself for the nth time. Depression really sucks and sometimes, you just have to hang on and not hang yourself somewhere to get over it. Exercising is a really big help as well. So, in times when I feel like giving up, I think it’s the best to just give yourself enough space to think things through and try to be calm by doing things that you love to do.

NEEDING

Some rest because I have to go to work in a few hours.

FEELING

Nervous and uncertain but things will be alright. I just know it.

 

 

My Version Of The Sunday Currently Vol. 5

PicsArt_1437923921423

Currently….

  1. Still reading Kiera Cass’ The Selection. I’m getting used to Kiera Cass’ pace. Her narration was pretty interesting and the character introductions were very good too.
  2. I’m writing my What’s In My Bag post in the other tab.
  3. I’m listening to Barney’s song right now because of my niece, Kelly.
  4. I’m thinking about the team leader post post-interview. I’m hoping that I’ll get it this time but I know that my interview answers were not really that good. So, yeah. I shouldn’t think about it that much.
  5. I’m smelling the aroma of Spam in my room. Apparently, they cooked the Spam without turning on the exhaust so, yeah.. my room smells like Spam.
  6. I’m wishing that the weekend could be longer. Y’know, so I can get more sleep. My weekend was as tiring as my weekdays..Oh, well… what’s new?
  7. I’m wearing a pink skeleton-printed tank top to sleep.
  8. Currently loving my niece, Kelly, who is very cute and mischievous.
  9. Needing more time to be pro-active. Sorry, I wasn’t able to finish this on time. I’m really having a hard time managing my time most especially on the weekend.
  10. I am feeling tired but happy. It’s good to be with family sometimes. I don’t feel that alone anymore.

My version of The Sunday Currently (Vol. 4)

I’ve been pretty busy these days. I used to allot some time for my Friday weekly blogpost, however, I realized that I am very busy every Friday and I really can’t update on Fridays regularly.

Same with the Sunday Currently, weekdays were supposed to be relax days or rest days for some. However, weekends are sometimes more hectic than my working week.

I consider Friday nights / Saturday morning (12 AM onwards) my weekend. Ino and I usually have after shift plans with our colleagues. Most especially if it’s a salary week, the colleagues usually get together and eat in a Korean restaurant nearby. Or sometimes, we tend to go out and enjoy some delicious dishes from different restos in Ortigas (those that are still open from 11 pm to 2 A.M or those 24 hour fast food or restaurants, etc.)

Sometimes I stay in his place, sometimes he stays in my place. So, when he’s around I don’t get to blog that much because he’s very sensitive with the lack of attention or minimal attention that I give him whenever we’re together. So, sometimes I just can’t blog when he’s around. There are exceptions though, and that’s mostly when I’m at his place or his workplace and he’s pretty preoccupied himself.

I also can’t blog on Saturday mornings ’cause I usually sleep late and wake up late.

For the past four weeks or so, Ino and I have been going to the gym on Saturdays. Sometimes we go to the mall after going to the gym to relax and go window shopping or sometimes we head to his place or my place to watch our favorite TV series or movies. Sometimes, we watch movies together after going to the gym too. So, my Saturday is usually a hectic one.

We also stay up late on Saturdays most of the time and wake up late. But I’ve been having my overtime for about two months now so I need to wake up earlier than usual and prepare for work. Yes, I work 6 days a week. Starting from Sunday where I have a part-time job which takes 5 hours. Then my usual 10-hour-job on weekdays. All for teaching and nothing else.

Ino’s Spicy Fried Chicken

So, here I am writing about my Sunday Currently. This is the fourth week so I’m gonna change some things up for a bit. I realized that my past two SCs are very boring to read and I’m gonna change that with not just a currently but my plan for the whole week starting this Sunday.

I’ve always started my week on Sundays because I’ve read somewhere that that’s how we are supposed to start the week. I’ve been treating Sundays as my week starter for years and I can’t remember when I started it.

This is my 4th Sunday so here’s the plan:

  1. I want to read The Selection by Kiera Cass more. I am happy to tell you that I was able to read more chapters this week and I’m already on Chapter 7. YEY!!
  2. I’m writing about my very own version of The Sunday Currently, obviously. I have written here before that I don’t write anything else except this when I’m doing this. However, I’m planning to write about some updates on Make My Day this week.
  3. I’m not listening to anything but I can hear some people talking because they are already having a class. Yeah, I’m currently in the office.
  4. I’m thinking about ending this post because I have to call in four minutes or less. I’m also thinking about the trap that we place at home.
  5. I’m smelling Ino’s hotdog and bacon lunch set. He prepared that for me so that I can eat it in the office. Awww, how sweet?!
  6. I’m wishing that this 20 minute class is absent. And yeah, she was absent for 20 MINUTES!! 🙂
  7. I’m wearing a printed shirt, my pink Freego shorts and my blue shoes.
  8. I’m loving Ino even more because he cooked for me and helped me change the fluorescent light last night.
  9. I need more time to write this, so maybe an updated version will be up later. I also need time to eat and sleep some more. I also need to write more posts.
  10. I am feeling happy and excited because we don’t have to go to work tomorrow! YEY!! But, I have to go to the gym again tomorrow to make up for Coach Jim’s absence last Saturday.
