QLF? Is it? Or something deeper?

It's a Thursday and I'm supposed to be doing my work but then I can't help but be depressed about something. Actually I wasn't thinking and worrying about it until this morning. It all started yesterday when my colleagues told me about it. And this is what I just said, "Nah, I know, right. Change topic please."

Am I experiencing this thing we call Quarter life crisis?

Quarter Life Crisis?!?!?

Omg! I thought I was still too young for that. But then time flies by so quickly. In just a matter of months I'll be turning twenty four already and still... Honestly I really don't like to talk about that. I don't want to look desperate or whatever but it's just kind of depressing. And keeping it all to myself makes it even worse. I haven't talked about it to someone seriously. So maybe writing it in here would lessen the burden. I hope so.

I know I'm an independent, young woman and I'm living my life right now. I don't need a special someone just to make my life complete. I have my family and friends. I have a job that I really like. But then again, at the end of the day I still dream of meeting my prince.

I remember the book I read entitled, Captivating. It explores the core, desires, wounds, and mysteries of a woman's heart. And I would like to share an excerpt from the book:

Every woman was once a little girl. And every little girl holds in her heart her most precious dream.

Sometime between the dreams of your youth and yesterday, something precious has been lost. And that treasure is your heart, your priceless feminine heart. God has set within you a femininity that is powerful and tender, fierce and alluring. No doubt it has been misunderstood. Surely it has been assaulted. But it is there, your true heart, and it is worth recovering. You are captivating.

That book is truly an enlightening and inspirational work. And it reminds me that yeah, eventhough I have the things that I wanted, there's still something deep within my heart that needs to be seen, heard, and understand.

3101: Bonding with former roommates

Finally, we've seen each other again (after almost two years). Last Saturday, me and my former roommates in college met in Manila. First stop was Mall of Asia. While waiting for the others, Shayne and I strolled around the mall. There were lots of christmas decors already, which reminded me that christmas is fast approaching. We had fun taking pictures of each other. And I really loved the christmas trees and other decors made of native materials and the colors/themes of red and gold.

At last!

Yey! At last! I already sent the documents to my professor in grad school. It took me a long time to complete all of them, but now it's finished and I'm so happy!

And I just wanna share my experience this afternoon when I mailed them:
  1. First and foremost, I searched the internet for the price of international delivery and found out that aside from charges based on location, weight also matters, which led me to weigh my documents in the top-balance in the lab. Good thing it's only 189 grams.
  2. I went to the mailing express center. The man there said that he would be inspecting the documents. Oh my! I already securely closed the envelope with glue and scotch tape. But I had no choice. I opened it. Then he asked for the contact number of the receiver but unfortunately I didn't have it. So he suggested I find it first and go back to him.
  3. I directly went to an internet cafe to check my professor's number, but before that I bought new envelope, scissors, and glue (since I ruined my first envelope while opening it). After making sure that I had his number, I put the documents in the new one. I also printed new copy of sender's and receiver's mailing address and pasted them on the envelope.
  4. Finally, I went back to the mail man and sent the documents successfully, which will  arrive there after three to four working days, so that'll be on Wed or Thurs.
Lessons learned: Make sure to have a complete contact info of the receiver. And do not be too excited to  close the envelope, keep in mind there's a word we call 'inspection.'
However amidst all of those mishaps, I really am very happy!...and sleepy already. Haha! I now have a new rule in life, it's called "the ten o'clock rule." Why? Because I realized I need enough sleep. To achieve that, I need to be on bed, sleeping and dreaming by 10pm. This should also be done to lessen my acne breakouts. Yes as of now breakouts are everywhere on my face. And it feels terrible! Oh my, all I ever wanted is to have a smooth, clear, acne-free skin.

I'm kinda busy, k-kinda busy

This is gonna be just a quick post. As I've said in my previous entry, I was hoping to regularly write here but at present it doesn't seem to be the case. I've been doing lots of things lately. And I need to meet two deadlines this week: one in work, the other in my application for grad school. Just the thought of those deadlines makes me stressed out already. However, regarding my application, I'm happy to say that I already have all the needed documents. Tomorrow, I'll just photocopy each of them. And hopefully, be able to submit them on Thursday or Friday. After all these, I hope I'll have my much needed time for blogging. But as for now, I need to focus on doing my research work and completing the necessary steps in the application.
