101 Things To Do

My mind is full to the brim. Truth be told, I’m a little exhausted.

I’m trying hard to stay patient, cool and calm during the daily 8-hour. I’m finding myself getting irritated and annoyed and suppressing it as best as I can, which may be good or bad. After the 8-hour, I still have things to plan and do, which is why I feel that my days for the past few weeks and for the coming weeks to come are just so long.

I really wished I had made a different decision and to allow myself at least one week of break. What I want to do most now is to take a flight home and just be there for a week. I just want to get away and pick myself up again.

But that’s not possible now so I just got to make do with what I have.

Gracie, I know it’s overwhelming but please just take one step at a time and I’m sure you’ll get things planned out.

It’s 6am. You have another hour and 15 minutes to sleep before getting up again. Good morning!!


Happiness is…#62

Coming home at 10:30pm after my Korean lesson replacement class, feeling famished and to find another hungry soul about to cook instant noodles for dinner who just so happened to just got home from work. I “ordered” a bowl of instant noodle from my sister who was about to cook then.

After eating, we went lying on the sofa, our heads laying next to each other. I was holding my iPhone and playing the short video clips of Q&A sessions of Miss Universe 2011 on Y0uTube. We commented, laughed, and then switched hands to hold the iPhone.

New Host (Again!)

Okay…so I’ve migrated to a new host because I just cannot have another downtime with my old host. There was some technical glitch during the migration because the database wasn’t a full backup. I have no idea why and which is why this is another reason that I don’t like my old host.

I’m glad I managed to get another backup from WordPress itself so my blog entries are safe. I was so worried because it migrated over, I could only see the latest post dated 20 March 2011. That’s like 6 months of entries going missing. Imagine my horror when I thought they are gone with the wind.

I’m happy with my new host so far and I hope it stays that way.

The Key

When I left for work this morning, Pappy locked the door for me. When I came home today, I was looking for my keys and I couldn’t find them! Gah!

I knew I must have left putting the keys in when I switched bags last  night. And the fact that I didn’t use the keys to open the door for myself and lock the doors today didn’t give me any warnings.

So..I started thinking of what I should do. I didn’t have any car key with me as well since today I carpooled with a colleague. If I had, I would have drove to get the other key set from my sister. I feel a little sad that there’s only a few that I can call. A few is so overrated, in fact I only have one person  in mind that could actually save me while I’m keyless.

I’m glad that person was available and so we went for dinner while waiting for my sister to finish work so that we can enter the house together.

Lessons of the day:

1. Touch my keys before I walk out that door every morning.

2. I am in need of more friends that stay nearby. My close friends…they are just so far from me.
