What I Am Thinking When I Am Walking


With lost hours on waiting and on the road, I decided to change a few things with my daily travel schedule.

In the morning, instead of catching the 7:20AM trip, I decided to take the 6:30AM trip, adjusting my wake up time to 5AM. I reach the vicinity very early, I get off the bus stop, 3 blocks away from my school, so I can have a morning walk. Every day, I pass by the same landmarks, yet I still get amaze looking at the same things every day. I wish I can just walk my way to work every day. I mean, no more commuting involved at all.

I can't help but smile whenever I get to see a rainbow. 


As I walk, I think about what I will do for the day. What I’ll do as soon as I reach my workstation. Which folders to pull out from the files, which worksheets to print, ask my buddy how to execute a lesson, which props and pictures to work on. Before I get right into the doorstep of the school, it’s as if, I had a picture of how my day will go.


Ohh. I miss this part. I don't pass by this area anymore since I started taking the bus.  


But it’s not always like that. Sometimes, it’s very far from how I had pictured it to be. Most of the time actually. Still, the day goes by until the moment it’s time to call it a day.


Guess which building is my school located. LOL.
I used to wait for the bus in the afternoons homebound. But since there were only 2 buses enroute, waiting time usually takes as much as 1.5 hours every day plus the traffic during rush hours. When I get home, they were usually done with dinner. Commuting is the most tiring part of my day.



This was the first and the last time I saw this with the lights on. 

I decided to get back to my afternoon walks from school to the jeepney terminal at the mall. It usually takes 15 minutes if I am in a hurry or as much as 30 minutes if I am taking my time.

I like passing by under this yarn curtain. I keep thinking of a title for this artwirk but I can't think of a good one. 


I take my time thinking if I should buy a doughnut, drop by National Bookstore, window-shop or go straight home. If I go straight home, what will I be doing after I wash the dishes. Will I study first? Or will I read that novel first? Or start a new one? What time will I log in at IRC? What time will I sleep? Will I practice calligraphy tonight? Watch something? Or write? Or just troll on facebook? I keep reminding myself that I should change my music playlist. It has been the same one since I can’t remember when. But when I reach home, it never gets to be changed. It will be the same playlist the following day.



Homebound.


At the jeepney terminal, if I am lucky enough, there will be a short line of people waiting for the passenger vehicle or no line at all. Then I am home just on time for dinner.

I try to accomplish as much as I can before I go to bed.

It’s cyclical. Routinely. Boring. Ok fine, let me say it then, lonely at times.

I look forward to days that I can share how my day had gone to #DFB. Not that I don't like sharing it with my mom or my sibs and a few friends who bother to ask.

It would probably be nice to share days with the one. In due time.

For now, let me enjoy this moment on my own.

  1. You think of many things which is good and see the world in different hues. I understand that sharing your days to someone special is far more magical thus the wish. One day Kat, one day.

  2. Same thing goes for me when I report on our office in Kalaw. Nakakatawa lang minsan (really) to find oneself lonely despite the multitude of people in the urban jungle.

    OK. Panoorin mo kaya ang #trumpetschallenge namin mila JL kesa magtroll ka sa FB.wahehehe

  3. Hmmm. That makes two of us. I wake up at 5am (Sometimes 4:30 even.). Yup, even on weekends. I like it that I am able to plan the day ahead and even take a glance at the (silly) planner on what's on sked for the day and pace myself accordingly.

    As I walk, I think about what I will do for the day. What I’ll do as soon as I reach my workstation. Which folders to pull out from the files, which worksheets to print...

    Capital, finding someone who shares in one's philosophy.

    It usually takes 15 minutes if I am in a hurry or as much as 30 minutes if I am taking my time.

    I time myself, too! Ahahahaha. When I used to live in SanMat, it takes me 2.5 hours to get to work, and a bit longer, to get home. If it be a Friday, then it's an eternity. *small laugh*

    If we're talking about Angel Linao (this be Malate, now), it's just 20 mins to an hour depending on Makati traffic.

    Will I study first? Or will I read that novel first? Or start a new one?... Or write? Or just troll on facebook?

    The many things the fill the hours in between. I hope, too, like you, this will change. And it will, one day. *smiles*

    It's going to be

    Reply to SO's text an hour ago re dinner plans. Shower. Dress. Choose the smashing red one, where I feel the sexiest. Strappy sandals, with heels, since you will be cabbing it and sent home in a vehicle (his). Light perfume on the wrist, under the chin, behind the ears. A brilliant, dazzling smile as I meet him under the tivoli lights and onto our table...

    For now, let me enjoy this moment on my own.
    Yes. Please do. Relish the picturesque view. Get involved in the here and now.

    And thank you, for taking us to this typical day of yours. Always interesting, getting to know you more.

    1. Haha...

      I suppose SO is for my SomeOne? Or just a random initial youve thought of?

      .... A fancy dinner sounds very nice.

      Hmm. Red dress.... I definitely look good in that color... Connotes seduction. Hahaha

      Hmmm. Perfume on those parts... ill look forward to him taking a sip of my scent. Lols.

      The smile....

      In time :)

      Thanks for dropping by as always.

  4. I don't like walking. too many assholes in the streets. Too many distracting handsome guys. Just too many hassle.

    I like driving to work. I like the adrenaline rush of shouting at other stupid drivers while stuck in traffic. Hahaha!

    Are you sure you are ready to relinquish your independence? There are times that i say to myself that i really don't need a guy to fill my day. I just need one to have safe sex at night. hahahahaha!
