13 years of what luck

Hindi naman kailangang magaling ka, kelangan lang mahal mo ginagawa mo para tumagal ka. Kase kapag mahal mo yung ginagawa mo, kahit mahirap, aaralin mo, tya-tyagain mo. Dagdagan mo narin ng surviving skills. Hehe

13 years – not all days are rainbows and butterflies, there had been nimbus clouds and dementors, too. Minsan swerte, minsan malas. Minsan blessed, minsan feeling cursed.

Sa MRT palang feeling cursed ka na madalas. I have been asked if I have any plans to move closer to work. I always say, “wala. Kaya pa!”, because I have more important things to worry about than my convenience (alam mo yan pag panganay ka 😉). Haha.

In my 13 years, I thank the companies that gave me a chance and hired me. Haha Because, honestly kahit gaano kaganda or not-so, sila parin reason kung bakit may pang-travel ka, sila parin reason kung bakit mo na-meet yung work friends mo, or minsan sa iba yung “chuvachuchu” 💕 nila. Oy hindi totoo ang sabi-sabi na pag umalis ka ng “>” eh magkaka-lovelife ka na! Echoserang twuo! Or baka naman nga hindi lang talaga tayo “jowable”. 🤣

I thank my friends, my inuman buddies pag stressed nung bata-bata pa, my rant buddies nung tita-tita na. Hahaha! My rant buddies – you’re all special dahil nakakatulong talaga kayo sa mental health ko. Hehe!

In 13 years, I have worked with quite a lot of people and I love those who I became friends with even after the project ended, even after we resigned and left for another company. You don’t always get that. Amazing. Hehe

I can’t believe I have been going to and from work for 3200 days already, excluding weekends and PH Holidays (although there had been working weekends and holidays). Imagine yung Eat Bulaga! 40 years including Saturdays, and excluding Holidays! (dabarkads ‘to eversince! *fist to the heart* 😉 hahaha!)

Anyway, 13 years. *whew*

You know na adult ka na talaga siguro kapag iba na yung follow-up question mo pag may friend na nire-recruit ka. Dati – “malaki ba offer dyan?”. Ngayon – “masaya ba dyan? hindi ba ako gagabihin dyan? toxic ba dyan?”. Life. Iba na makakapagpasaya syo pero malaki parin factor pag malaki ang bigay. Haha 🤪 Pero OR na lang sya sa condition mo. Hindi na masyadong AND.

Professionally, I am grateful for what I have been through, and I’m proud of what I have become.

13 and counting.

I need a break.

cheret. 🍻

Who would’ve thought. 💁🏻‍♀️

    “Ngayon – “masaya ba dyan? hindi ba ako gagabihin dyan? toxic ba dyan?”. Life. Iba na makakapagpasaya syo pero malaki parin factor pag malaki ang bigay. Haha 🤪 Pero OR na lang sya sa condition mo. Hindi na masyadong AND.”
