V-Day Thoughts

I got no time for blogging lately. I've been doing most of the housechores since Mama left and it's too exhausting doing them after work.

Work's been a pain in the ass lately. Aside from the usual stress-triggering nature of some calls, my headset got stolen. They said I lost it but I knew I didn't misplace it. I've had that for about 2 years now and every operator on the floor has his or her own headset. Who would have thought leaving it in the pantry would tempt someone to steal it? I would want to think that it was mistakenly used by another operator but I never thought being too trusting would make me pay. Literally. They want me to pay almost P8,000 (salary deduction) because of that. I was so mad I cried. it's not a cheap price to pay. I hated that. I guess I just need to get a breather (again). This too shall pass.

On the lighter side of things, I had a lunch date today. Yay! Go me! Actually, I never thought I'd be up and about on Valentine's Day because I believe it's too commercialized and overrated (especially in the malls). It was actually a surprise from someone special. I didn't even have a gift. Haha! Oh well, I can give gifts any time I want and not just on Valentines, right? Maybe once the flowers get cheaper. Haha! I don't wanna get mushy-mushy over it although I have to admit it was really touching. I wish to experience more of those simple joys.

I just remembered, way back in high school, I imagined myself to be married at age 27 or 28. Geez... I'll be turning 27 in the next few months (hint if you need one: when Harry Potter hits the bookstores and cinemas). I cannot... again, CANNOT imagine being married in the near future. I'm too young (at heart) for that! Oh well, it goes to show perceptions and plans change. Don't get me wrong, I have someone special, boys who are friends, crushes and all that. I still wanna grow old with someone one day but I don't wanna get hitched yet. I'm keeping an open mind. I mean, I haven't even (seriously) introduced anyone to my parents yet. I know conservatives out there would ask why and I have many reasons but the main thing is I am not ready for marriage yet. I will only introduce a man to my parents once I know he is the man I wanna spend the rest of my life with.

As of now, I'm ok with where I am. I am not in a rush to get married. I still have time before I go through menopause. Haha! My biological clock is not ticking yet. I have so many things I wanna do first for myself and for my family. I don't see marriage as an end goal but a beginning of a new chapter in life. I guess I am enjoying this chapter too much for me to take my time and not hurry up. As long as I know I love and am being loved by a lot of people, yes, including my friends, family and relatives, I'm happy. That's all that matters right now.

Happy Hearts' Day everyone!
