It was a busy day but I managed to have a small talk with my officemate spending her last day in the office. I learned she's going home in the province for good and plans to work there.
"It was a tough decision. I have to weigh-in everything and have to give up lots of opportunities. I gave up a job waiting for me abroad and a high-paying job here in Manila," she told me when I asked what made her decide. "I just want to live the simple life unlike the very fast pace of metro leaving, I want to teach in a university in Bacolod and reunite with my family," she added.
I admire her courageousness – she gave up the opportunities here and to find out what's in store for her in the province.
On the other hand, this made me ponder on my plans. I asked myself if I should stick to the plan of going home once I have enough savings. I guess so. I guess not.
I'm pretty much sure that I will ask again myself with the same questions anytime soon.

Pakiramdam ko masyado na akong domesticated sa mga nakaraang araw. Dahil sa paglipat ko sa bagong bahay, mas nae-enjoy ko na ang mamalagi na lang dito kaysa sa paglalabas o paggimik.
Kung wala ako sa office o sa gym, malamang nasa bahay lang ako. Madalas eh nagluluto ng breakfast, lunch at dinner. Nakakatuwang isipin na madami akong natutunang lutuin, pilit ko na din kasing iwasan ang fast food.
Yung pagiging obsessive compulsive ko eh bumalik na din. Ayoko ng makalat at maalikabok na bahay kaya walis dito, punas dun, dapat din laging malinis ang pinakaimportanteng parte ng bahay – banyo. Hehehe.
Anyway, di pa ako nakakapag-house warming. Balak ko sana pag may oras na at kung may budget na din. Lol! At syempre, hindi makukumpleto yun pag wala kayong dadalhing gamit. Heto nilista ko lang naman ang mga kulang pa sa bahay ko:
- Microwave oven
- 32" LCD TV
- Coffee maker
- Corner lamp
- Washing machine
- Comforter set

This Q1 is more of a roller coaster ride. My work demanded more time than the usual but I am always happy for it.
There are also things that I have to be thankful for, things that I never imagined to achieve.
First, I already moved to a new condo near the office. I must say the place is nice and I felt at home from the time I stepped in here.
Next, the projects that lined up until Q3 are more exciting although I have a little chance of getting a business trip in here.
Third, I already received my first increase! Wooot!
And lastly, although it's not yet on my hand, a company somewhere in Eastwood is asking me to join them with of course twice (pero gusto ko thrice) of what I am receiving now plus more perks! At least I know now my market value. LOL! #yabangmuch. Sana nga kunin pa din nila ako.
Anyway, I hope you guys are enjoying the blessings you received these first few months of the year and sana tuloy-tuloy to hanggang matapos ang taon. J
