update schumpdate

Lame post title, I know. But I can't think of a good one now so might as well use this one. Anyway, again, I haven't posted anything in more than a month since work's been really really keeping me busy. I could have blogged if I wanted to, but I guess I wasn't 'inspired' enough to get myself to write. Plus, I've been having trouble uploading pictures for my entries from my computer because they'd always come out sideways. Weird.

Just to update anyone who's even interested (haha), I already mentioned that work has been really toxic lately. I'll try to upload the pictures I've taken when I go out for oculars. Believe me when I tell you that I've gone to a lot of remote areas. The pictures would prove it, but that'd be for another post.

Besides work, I did find out more than a month ago that I have a friend from Manila who's also based here in Isabela! Shocking, because we don't even see each other in Manila and the last time I saw him was probably 4 years ago. He's lucky, though, because he gets to go home to Manila every two weeks while my trips back home are very unpredictable...meaning, whenever I do have the time or if I'll be allowed to go home haha! Speaking of friends, I did meet a few new ones here in the span of 3 weeks which is pretty cool. So it's not going to be super lonely anymore here :)

Though I'm pretty focused on work most of the time, I can't help but be a bit distracted by my upcoming trip to Singapore. I'll be going home to Manila on the last week of October, squeeze in meeting different sets of friends, work the two days before the All Saints Day/All Souls Day long weekend before flying off to Singapore to visit my two girl friends Esther and Tin. I haven't seen them in more than a year since they moved there for work (they're both pre-school teachers). I've already planned out my itinerary, booked my plane ticket and hotel room reservation, and I'm saving up moolah for shopping (as expected). I'm so excited as this will be my first ever trip abroad without my family with me. I'm sure this will be a very fun trip, now all I need to do is plan out my wardrobe and figure out how to maximize my luggage space.

Honestly, there's so much going on now career wise and personally. However, I can't seem to be able to verbally express it as much as I want to here because this entry will never end if I did share these things. What I can say is that I feel like I'm just taking things as they come, and am sort of trying to suppress anticipating or expecting because I think that would just make me panic or worry. If that happened, I wouldn't be able to deal with things anymore with as much rationality and patience. Maybe I am overthinking things, or maybe I'm trying to control things too much? I don't know. So yeah, I better stop now.

Anyway, I hope you all had an awesome weekend and have a great week ahead! :)
