BLUE DAYS Gift and the 27th list

I have a theory. This has something to do with what M told me once. That for me to get my period I have to have my hormones in a particular range so that I would get blue days. And it required exercises that have to be done. But I have no time to exercise because I am a work or in bed these days. But I found that something else made me get my blue days.

It was the giddiness.

I don't know if that was  symptom or the cure. I can't safely say that he was the cure for that. Meds didn't work. I was supposed to buy a different set but I didn't really have the time to buy it. I had forgotten all about and then boom, today of all days, six days before my 27th birthday, blue day one for 2012.

I had hoped to get my reproductive system working normally, that is why I moved to a company that had medical benefits. But then shortly after attending and listening attentively, I found that they didn't cover the things that I needed. Or maybe I just haven't read the booklet as well as I should have.

Still, it gave me a bit of piece of mind. I am still under a lot of stress at work now. Mostly it is self-inflicted and I want to continue to improve to make the coaching and the effort of the people who helped me get to this level all worth it. I mean, I studied units in education. The only way that a teacher can feel better about a student is if that student does better than the teacher or at least doesn't become a an embarrassment. So far, my level is 42-70. My maximum comes with a lot of luck and a lot of ra's. Still from 25-37 that is a pretty big leap, almost twice as much. Still. I hope that I continue to learn how to shorten my talk time and get better at making decisions for my accounts. This all sounds greek to those who are not in my line of business, but I am sure some do.

Going back. I am not really that equipped to go to the beach or be unemployed if I don't get confirmed or regularized. So I am thinking that I need to ask for some help from friends who actually know how to handle their money. What works for them and for my who make less than what they earn and have more expenses than they do since I live on my own and can't cook (not allowed where I live and can't cook without burning everything). My rent eats up most of my money and that is just fine. Having my own space is bliss. Except my bliss is full of clutter.

I am thinking that this, the blue days has nothing to do with the giddiness. The giddiness I got from my new crush is a manifestation of the prayers Chinese lucky charm grandma placed on the charm she gave me. It's not that I don't believe in that, but it's made me significantly less stressed. I also go to church more often now. I live so near one anyway. No, no masses yet but I go there to light a candle to pray for his and his co-soldiers' safety in their area and his friends too. I write prayers of thanksgiving and petitions for things and people that I am grateful for as well as things and people that I am hopeful  for. Then there is the writing these blogs almost everyday. Some days I don't because hello nothing really happens at work that I can write about and I really don't want to document any negative thoughts or negathrons. Since as per Chinese lucky charm grandma said to only surround myself with positivity.

I noticed however that I work best when running against a negative statistic. Meaning if I am at the pits, I tend to be more competitive,not with everyone else like some people I know but with myself. I don't know if this is what people call self-motivated. I call it personal goals. I don't care if others are better than me or that I am doing better than others. All I want to do is to learn new things that would ease my work and make me like it better. I find that learning new things is my thing.
For example, today I learned how to say “Mahilig ka bang magbasa ng libro?” [Do you like/enjoy reading books?] in Ilocano. According to my father, it is “Naayat ka aya nga agbasa iti libro?” [Na-a-yat ka a-ya nga ag-ba-sa i-ti lib-ro?] Before I only know yes - “wen” and “You are handsome” - “Nag gwapo ka” and a few other lines that I don't want to write here since this is a wholesome blog entry. Still there is one that I like the most, [Ay-a-ya-ten-ka] which is “Ay ayaten ka.” - “I love you.” in the Ilocano dialect. My father is from Angadanan in Isabela so he's half-Ilocano from my grandpa's side and half-Batanguenyo from my grandma's side. I am thinking that my dad's Batanguenyo side might not be the one whom I find appealing since compared to my uncle's and the men I have dated from that half of him, had fallen from the pedestal. They tend to not be the perfectly imperfect guy I want. Maybe it's the Ilocano side of my father that actually made him better than the rest of the men who courted my mother at that time.

Perhaps that theory would have more weight if I had more exposure to them. Still I want to learn Ilocano. I hope there would be a book or an interesting person who can do that with me. Still he doesn't seem to want to do it. *rolls eyes upward*

The thing that he doesn't know about me, is that I am either relentless or easily bored. He can run away and never speak to me again but that won't stop me from liking him. He doesn't have to like me back and I don't even need reciprocation. What people don't understand from recovering hopeless romantics is that were can live with the thirst for love for many many many moons.

But once we find a different watering hole to go to and search for, no amount of splashing us with the old well's water would make us go back.

Still *looks around * I think I really need to make time to clear up my room's mess. I think the energy in my room is blocked that is why I am getting sicker. But after drinking the co-amoxiclab and the cough meds they gave me at the clinic I have stopped coughing excessively.

I got my Value Creation score today. It's meets. I am thinking that I need to do that same for my life. Make it a metric for my life. To make it better. Start with my PP scores that is following policies and procedure. Then make enough but not too much Connections with customers which would be family, friends and new people. Then value creation, make the right kinds of decisions so that I would have more good things happen to me and do more things in the limited time that I have between work and rest.

This weekend I have to go to a wedding, I am sure I would be a photographer/fat girl who is still single but already going to be 27 in several days time. Then I have to attend a funeral on Sunday. Yes, there is a wedding and a funeral. It's bizarre, I know but nevertheless that is my weekend. I would not but anything on Friday when I have to be with Her Royal Highness with the Third Prince when we go to Divi. I have to buy just one pair of Hello Kitty glasses for my sister (her star city day is gone forever since there is a funeral to attend on Sunday) and a gift for someone at work. I don't need anything else, except maybe rainy day shoes and dvds. But unlike the time we went there for my JD (china tablet) I don't plan any big expenditures. I need to remember that I make a third of what Her Royal Highness does. And she can shop enough for the both of us. Though she claims to be only needed to find a single dress. Surely we would visit her favorite shoe store first and her brother is coming so that might lead to some other guy stuff hunting. I am looking forward to finding out where I can buy goth-themed thing since I have loved that since my ma-luk days.

So I won't be able to clean my room. But I have to remember to have my clothes washed. I am thinking that perhaps it would be a better idea to just bring my clothes home for washing. Still that would require carrying them and I am too darn lazy. Still, it's more economical. So I am thinking that I could just do that this once. I have to warn the new maid. She might faint from exhaustion.

I am going to meet up with my friends J and A on the 11th of June. I wonder if we have work on the 12th. I hope not so I could spend the day chatting with them from the night of the 11th to as late as we can. But Makati is no Elbi, in the latter we can sit in the grass and chat away the hours. In Makati, it's a little less laid-back and more expensive. I told them to aid me with saving and money handling tips. Then I would bring my cosmo and my witty mind full of things I did in my shady life to help them fire up their already cozy lives with their beloveds. That's what crazy single friends are for, right? Besides, we haven't met up since one of us became a geisha, I mean went to Japan. I am sure Ate J is rocking Nihon. But I really wish I can visit there.

I swear I am going to name my daughter Sakura, damn the naruto references. She's going to be a flower and that's that. Or if I don't have kids, I can name my dog that. ;-) Depends on what life I would have, that of a spinster or a wifey.

Still right now, my worries are little. I still have a lot of stuff on my 26 things to do for my 26th year that I didn't get to do like make YOBO 4 onwards script. Yes, Norby I have not forgotten, just haven't gotten around to writing it. I am thinking that I should write it like a story then have him interpret it in the comics. Because I think of the format but I draw a blank. But the plot points are in my head. They have been swimming there for the longest time. Way too long if you ask Norby.

I will revisit my list, transfer some to my 27 things to do on my 27th year. Then By God, I am doing those things. Not vauge things, like the ones I wanted to put my my 365 days of 2012 that I never really got to finish and list down or do (though some of them I am working on). I think I can do better with just 27 things to do.

Number one on that list

1.      Boracay with friends. Flabby or penniless, even if I have to aparate to get there.

11.  Save at least 50,000-70,000
12.  Pay my mom my debt (once #11 is done)

23.  Attend all weddings of friends and relatives – enjoy telling people you never want to get married but love the wedding itself and the food.
24.  Never become a negastar and avoid them at all times. (unless company required and under the pain of death)
25.  Laugh as often as possible. Make people who are around happy to be around you. That means listening more talking less. ^.^
