Blurry weekend

Tuesday, another day to start of the work week. Thank you for the additional day off, happy MLK day to all those living in the U.S.

I started the weekend, Saturday with a bang! After work, my friends and I visited the National Museum, Intramuros, and had late lunch at the famous Ilustrados Restaurant. Nightime came, I still was not able to rest. My highschool batchmates came to our house for our alumni anniversary. Needless to say, when they left past midnight, I was in bed after cleaning up.

Sunday, I spent half of the day sleeping and the rest of the day watching movies with my sister Krissy. We finished 4 movies: Nowhere Boy (which I found very interesting since I love The Beatles), Green Lantern, Moonrise Kingdom (adored the characters), and Django (unfortunately, I fell asleep because it was too long).

Monday came and I was excited!!! Dad brought us to our new “kubo” in the middle of Laguna Lake. We had so much fun and being the eldest, I had to cook. Good thing there is google and “magic sinigang mix”. If not, I can’t imagine how and what will my sinigang version look and taste for that matter. Lol! We also had fried porkchop, stuffed milkfish and watermelon. Happy tummy!!! After lunch everyone was sleepy so we all took a nap while the wind was blowing hard. *mental note* bring a comforter next time 🙂

Tuesday!!! Tada!!! I made a decision to let go  my huge earrings collection. “Twinkle the star”, my online dream shop was born. Can’t believe that after so many debates I had with myself, I finally did it! I’m letting them go and though tears swell from my eyes, this is for the best. I just know it, mom was right… I can’t wear them all together.

Realizations:
1. I can be a homebuddy 🙂
2. Material things are really not that important.
3. Family comes first.
4. I should drink more water than coffee.
5. Cold weather makes me 20% more emotional than normal.
6. I should sleep more and read more.
7. I should really sleep or drag myself to sleep even if I don’t want to, like what’s happening now.

Hope you had a great one dear friends 🙂

Sleep Oh Sleep!

Normally, I sleep on an average of nine hours a day. A lot of people say I am so lucky. I believe I am but come to think of it, maybe the number of our sleep hours depends on us. Way back college, nursing days were so stressful I only slept for 6 hours daily except on Sundays. I have many things on my plate and a lot of times 24 hours wasn’t enough. So I suffered from insomnia and had to take sleeping pills just to get my eyes closed.

Just now, I realized I am wasting my time sleeping for nine or more hours in a day. Something is kinda wrong about this.
1. Books – My books are getting pretty dirty on my bookshelf. Some of them are still wrapped in covers. Reading has been my passion since gradeschool. How come, I ain’t in the mood for reading lately? I also became an orbicularist (someone who reads in bed) though deep in my heart, I am aware that it’s not a good practice. My eyes are also suffering, day by day, seems like everything looks a lil bit blurry.
2. Exercise – Can’t remember the last time I stretched my muscles and cracked my bones. Once my alarm rings, I’m up instantly and straight to the comfort room I go.
3. Television – One of the stuff on this earth that I have a love and hate relationship with. Never loved watching too many tv shows or series. I just simply miss National Geographic and HBO Channel.
4. FM Radio – Though I have an Ipod, listening to radio shows like Sunday Slowdown are one of the best things in life. Chillin’ on a weekend isn’t complete without it. Lately, I’d rather sleep it off.

To top it all, I’m sleeping like a hibernating mammal. I guess this is not good as well. One quote I came across with says “Do not sleep for too long, coz you might miss out on some great things”.

AM I?
