Sleep deprived in a great way

bed time


For the past three or four months, things have been uber busy as I have mentioned in my last post. One thing after another keeps over lapping and yep, some things that we can’t control. Since the holidays are fast approaching my sleep deprivation will continue (this time I am not guessing, I am stating). Getting a 10 hour sleep in a day will always be a talent. I had that before and I loved it, then my insomnia-tic ways surfaced again. Main reason is my travel time from home to work is roughly 2 hours and vice versa. So in a day, that’s minus 4 hours of sleep already for me compared to my 15 minutes travel time when I was staying at my grand mother’s house. You may ask me, do I regret it? Moving back to my parents house? Nope, I don’t I just miss my “Inang” at times. Then I got a new job function, which I enjoy a lot, but there are times I have to extend which is okay with me. Lastly, my coffee addiction turned into endless Starbucks momentos with all the special people. Before I would only drop into my fave store after or before my shift starts, now it’s both. Pre-shift coffee for my self-dates, US girls cocol time (mostly Fridays) and realization time. Post-shift coffee dedicated to my beloved friends, non-stop laughing and shedding our hearts out. Weekends are jammed packed because we have special guests, my relatives from Germany are here and we make sure to spend most of our time together if we can. So far so good, we had a lot of quality time together for the past weeks.

The other night, I had a chance to sleep for 8 hours and that was the closest I can get from my past 10 hour sleep routine. I opened my eyes, gave thanks to the Lord, for a happy day ahead, the pool of happiness is waiting for me. Am always ready to swim 🙂 Changes as they say, will always be good.


Love is all around me and so the feeling grows

Mondays are made for LOVE. That is what I will believe in starting today. I mean, I know LOVE is a daily thing but this day showed me Love in two different angles.

Love can be seen in a face of a lady who’s excited to have a date with the man of her life. A dear friend of mine, whom I am not sure if I should name (haha) is very happy and all giddy as I helped her plan her weekend getaway. My heart was racing with excitement just by thinking how happy their trip will be. Thank you friend for trusting me with this one… now I have another event to specialize on aside from the birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers etc… that is “Date Planning”. Just the thought of writing the letters ETD and ETA makes me jump for joy!

Love can be heard in the laughter of a couple sharing one umbrella under the non-stop rain. After a quick Iced Cafe Mocha with Mint syrup date, I walked to the place where the fx should be waiting. I heard cute little noises, I stopped looking at my feet and my eyes fell on this lovely couple having a really good time together. They were laughing their hearts out, the echos of their love were magical. It was like watching a scene from a movie and I was so glad I was there, right then and there.

See, Love doubles up! It can actually take you to places you have never imagined. One must know how to open their hearts and let the love in. Accept love like you have never been hurt. That is the only way to heal a broken heart. There should be no place for long time hatred. 🙂
