Wouldn't it be nice......

My daily bedtime is at usually at half past midnight and wake up alarm is at half past seven in the morning. That was the usual. If not from a call from a friend from the other side of the world for early morning sessions of school modules for our NGO school in PH, my alarm of humming and chirping birds would slowly wake me up. That was the usual case today. I don't really hit the snooze, I just click on the stop alarm option and would wait for a few minutes then wake up. But today, for some reasons, I overslept and noticed that it was already 9AM! By 9AM, I should have been done with my laundry, getting ready for the gym and probably have touched on a few stuff for the training modules. But at 9AM, I was just getting up, straight to brewing coffee and for a change, I sauteed the leftover veggies I got. I also spared some for my dinner bento. I keep reminding myself to be more aware in spending money, avoiding bento lunches whenever I can just go and have kitchen-dasher moments. …

Tuesday is for slightly getting back on track

I wasn't as productive as I aim to be. I wanted to start working on the modules for the teacher training but I can't seem to find the organization in my head to work on it. But I did finish editing the podcast episode that was supposed to have been for last Sunday but since I was so out of rhythm, I had to delay the process. Getting back on track whenever I lose my way is such a daunting task to do. But fulfilling, nonetheless. I will keep losing my way yet, I will keep struggling to find my way back. Coz that's how it is meant to be.

Let Sunshine In.

I realized that since my room got darker when my landlord put up the protection boards, my energy had been so low as well. Though I managed to accomplish a few things, it was noticeable that the gloom of the room is taking its toll on me. 
Yesterday, he removed the boards before I left for my driving lesson and the room lit up and felt lighter too. It was also nice to wake up to a bright view. The rays of the sun slashing in the curtains were also good for some photo ops. 

The season has gone colder and my skin is having its  cold season issues, too. That's for another day's complaining. Haha. 
For now, it is good to finally feel that I am getting things done.

I could use a hug. Tons and frequent.

I have been complaining non-stop for the past few days. I'm tired.I'm hungry.I'm busy.I lack time.I'm tired.I'm hungry.I'm busy.I'm tired.I'm hungry.I'm busy.I'm tired.I'm hungry.I'm busy.I just wanna be a sushi. I just wanna wrap myself up in my comforter, rolled in it and then I have an excuse as to not do anything because I am wrapped up, literally. But I just gotta keep going. I promised myself I will keep going and it will happen. It should happen. This little acts and tasks and accomplishments will pay off, it should pay off, in one form or another. I could use a hug. Tons and frequent.

Investing on the skill.

It will definitely take a lot of effort, funding, time and lots of self doubt if I can acquire this skill, but I will definitely put my money in here. For myself. For my future. It would take time and money but definitely not forever. 
Excited to document on my learning-how-to-drive journey in Japan.

Friday Whip Up

Image
I was so hungry after 4 straight classes today and was thinking of getting ramen but I don't wanna spend. Plus I have a lot deliverables to work on. And I mean it.... A LOT. 
As soon as I stepped at my house, washed my hands, put the pan into the stove, grabbed the bottle of the remaining spanish sardines, mushrooms and some onions.. sauteed them in another pan while boiling water for pasta. Thought of making a vodka-based cocktail but I realized that I still have some umeshu... 

My bare face and tired self would like to send its Cheers! For a Friday night filled with things to accomplish :)

Hump Wednesday Face

Was out late in the morning but nothing to be in a rush so I took my time and slept in a bit more. Also, getting used to not putting any make up at all. 🤪 No need to be pretty for anybody, anyway. 
Had a chance to hit the gym with the goal of being back home at 12noon. I did almost 12noon. Lol. 

This is my work face.
