And I thought I would be raring to blog after a ten-day “gag” during my stay in Beijing. But no. It’s been over a week and I’m not motivated in the least to come up with a new entry. Not that there’s nothing to blog about. There’s that Lonely Planet-ish entry on China — from the grandeur of the Great Wall to the extreme difficulty of peeing in the so-called Asian toilet (once and for all, someone tell me, does one turn her back to the door or face it?) — waiting to be written. And then, of course, I’m still reeling from the heartbreak of losing an important leaseback case (totoo ito: mas masakit pala matalo sa unang kaso kesa makipaghiwalay sa boypren). Oh and I’m also moving jobs at the end of the month, thereby saying goodbye to my dear friends in IDEALS and hello (again) to my friends at AKBAYAN and CARET. as well as providing all-out (albeit voluntary) support to my Katarungan buddies.
Di naman ako depressed kaya di ako makasulat. Certainly, I have reasons aplenty to be happy. Jordan, my best friend, is coming in a few days, Jeremy, my close college friend, is already here from Canada. We have a notice of coverage issued in one case (yahoo). My friend Kit had a successful kidney transplant. And I’m going to Baguio soon. Wala na kasi yung 2-week medical vacation I had initially wanted para makapagpacheckup and all, in between changing jobs, di na nakayanan ng work load so one weekend nalang in Baguio. I can’t believe I’m actually counting the days before a trip to a place I’ve been to countless times before. Parang batang excited pumuntang Jollibee. Haha. Eh sa excited talaga ako eh. Kailangan ko lang talagang tapusin ang aking overdue paper on China ODA. Dahil sa totoo lang, minumulto na niya ako sa panaginip.
Ay ito pa pala. Gusto ko ng rain boots. Gusto ko polka dot pink. Kasi ayoko nababasa toes ko eh. Kung sino may alam na mapagbibilhan ng ganun, pakisabihan naman ako. Asap.
What about you? What’s going on in your life?
