So Far

It has been 29 days since I was outside the house for more than four hours.  Metro Manila will be on enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) until the 15th of May; an extension that frankly everyone knew was coming days before… Read More ›

Brake to Break

I came from one full week of vacation leave from work and it was a good one. Someone even commented at work earlier that I look rested. Partida pa yan, I look like a strawberry 🍓 after my skin tags… Read More ›

Go, Grow, Glow

I applied for a higher position at work and I didn’t get it. To say I was more relieved than disappointed won’t be a lie. The interview was something that felt like a staff meeting. I knew it then that… Read More ›

Chillax

The second half of the year is shaping up pretty well. It’s a validation of sorts that people stop me now to talk about the date and immediately after that comes tiny twitches of regret that I wrote about it… Read More ›

My 30-Hour-a-Week Lover

I wrote this 2 years ago. I don’t think my preference has significantly changed. I meant to share this crazy computation since I conceived it one humid commute along Quirino Avenue. This was borne out of an impression that a… Read More ›

Standardized

Things happened and they were many. Of them all, one stood out to me recently. It was a very random afternoon at work, and I don’t know what led us (I mean me, one of my teammates and our acting… Read More ›

Rerun

I ran 10K again earlier today. My last 10k was two years ago when my former boss requested us to join him for his farewell run in Manila. This time I, along with some people in the office, ran in… Read More ›

March Demarche

The first quarter of 2014 is over, you guys. However, unlike previous first quarters, this one, at least for me, felt full and the pace was just right. Everything’s peachy on the work front, save for small moments of whoopsies… Read More ›

February Has Folded

Two months down, ten to go. February was a busy month for me and I loved it. Most of our work-related efforts culminated in the America in 3D expo that our office did last weekend. I was part of a… Read More ›

January Wrap Up

One month down, eleven to go! The first month of the year swished just like that. It was fun though. And fast. Let’s see, what was I up to last month? January holds a soft spot for me mainly because of my… Read More ›

Thank you, 2013.

Happy New Year! When I did a rundown of the first half of my 2013, it was quite eventful and hopeful. The last half of the year was pretty much the same. Of course, there’s still the “Another year has… Read More ›

HALFTIME REPORT

Half of the year is over.  If you think it went too fast, I say it’s just about right.  It’s been an eventful ride. Highlights? You may have read about THE pox.  The rollercoaster of emotions involving my one true… Read More ›

What the Pox

Adults contract chicken pox, too.  It was hard for me to believe it until it happened to me.  I’m on the 11th day of living with the varicella virus, and I hope to part with it in the next seven… Read More ›

Weekend Bender

No matter how short, I always look forward to weekends.  Lately, I no longer spend all my time hunched in my chair, pausing only to relieve myself.  Lately, I go out, do things, meet people — you know, normal human… Read More ›

Back to Work!

Today’s my first workday of the year.  If it’s a glimpse of  the year ahead, then it’s going to be an exercise in flexibility and time management. As soon as I arrived, my Filipino boss approached me and said I… Read More ›
