March: Thirty Days of Celebration

So here’s the deal.

I want to do something kind of big this month. Again, March is one of my favorite months, and I don’t want this month to go by without challenging myself somehow. I know, it sounds crazy because I seem to find a lot of challenges to join for myself every now and then…but what’s life if you’re not challenged, right?

Or maybe I am just crazy.

Anyway. The last time I did a 30-day blogging challenge, I failed at the end because of the flood that caught all of us by surprise. I’m sort of pretty sure a flood will no longer happen — at least, not anytime soon, so I guess it’s pretty safe to have another 30-day challenge, right?

But I realized that last year’s blogging challenge was kind of hard for me because I didn’t have any focus, not unlike Riz, who focused on blogging about 30 awesome things. I didn’t have any kind of theme — I just blogged because I felt like it. This time, I want t have some kind of theme with my blogging, and because I’m turning 24 this month, I figured…why not write about things worth celebrating?

Tada! Here’s 30 days of Celebration!

I have a feeling I’ll be complaining about this sometime soon, about how I’m running out of things to write about, but I do hope I’d contradict myself and find it easier this time. :) It may be something grand to celebrate about, like watching the upcoming Paramore concert, or turning 24, or even something as simple as getting roller blinds…I’m pretty sure there is something worth celebrating everyday, right?

The 30 days will run from March 2 to March 31, so the official start is not until tomorrow. I thought of writing this as my first post…but that might be cheating. And yes, I’m doing that to challenge myself further. :p

Oh, and there will be an additional challenge for myself this month, but I’ll mention that when I’m done, because I’m not really sure if I can actually do that challenge. Okay, I may not have made sense there, but…yeah, I’ll explain next time. :P

So, hello, March. :) You’re going to be awesome. ♥

First of March

Yesterday consisted of:

  • Sleeping in late
  • Playing Heroes for a while in the morning
  • Dressing up
  • Jomar & Clarisse‘s wedding (Congratulations!)
  • Seeing old friends who I haven’t seen since the Switchfoot in Manila event
  • Seeing my Sociology professor in the wedding who I haven’t seen in five years and turns out to be Jomar’s friend. Small world!
  • Becoming an impromptu tech person to help out with the video presentation for the pre-reception event
  • Resting all night to recuperate from all of the past weeks’ activities.

Today I got to rest, more or less, and I think I’m ready for tomorrow’s back to work day shift. Interestingly, I have to fore myself not to work on anything that is related to work when I get home. Today I did some little work stuff, but that’s only because I want to be rid of that before tomorrow so I can do the other stuff we need to finish. Did that make sense?

Another thing, I’m becoming more…paranoid about the work stuff I left at work. Maybe it’s only because there’s so many things that we need to finish tomorrow which is why I’m thinking of that constantly, and I bet once we finish the workload (no more excuses now since we don’t have anything big to do), I’ll be functioning normally again. Heh. I’m kind of apprehensive with opening my email inbox tomorrow because I feel like there’s incoming “hate mail” because we haven’t done what we are supposed to be doing. But that’s probably just my paranoia again. Hee.

Oh, since we’re all talking about work stuff, I won something during our Barangay Hall last Friday. =D I got awarded as one the Top 3 specialists for the quarter. :”> I freaked out when it was announced because I was emceeing. Talk about awkward moment! I got a Php 1000 gift certificate from Rustan’s which I could use to buy…something. Oooh, I could buy a LeSportsac bag with that! :) I’m still going to pay a bit more to get a decent bag, but at least it’s not as expensive as Hilton Head rentals. :D

My mom and my brother have been bugging me to sleep because of day shift tomorrow, so I’m going now. Belated happy first of March!
