Sick Day

Today I filed my first sick leave in the span of one and a half years. Yesterday caught me under the rain every time I would go out of the office, and I already had a sore throat the day before, and then the oh-so-annoying colds. This morning I woke up with a relentless cough and wheezing lungs. Hello, asthma. We meet again.

So I spent the entire day lying down, eating my sick-day soup (macaroni, squash, tofu, oregano, cabbage), watching TV and reading books. Oh, and sleeping too. It’s been an uneventful day, and I’m still coughing like there’s no tomorrow. This reminds me of how I was back in elementary, when I would get sick every now and then — if not fever, asthma, if not asthma, fever. Sometimes a bit more serious, but I always pull through.

It’s kind of hard commuting when you’re sick though. This just means I should go driving.

Er, anyway. It’s 9:30 and I should get to bed. After this CSI Miami episode. I have a lot of work to do tomorrow that I’ve got no time to think of auto parts franchises, so I better rest now. :)

Take care guys, don’t get too sick like me. :P

Hey there, working girl

Hello, I’m alive. It feels like I haven’t been here for a long time but it’s only two nights. That’s how much of a blog-addict I became back during bum time.

Work is okay, so far. Not much to tell, except that I finally have my desk by tomorrow (I just hope the computer is already set up by the time I arrive tomorrow so I can at least try to play with it). I’ve gone on small trainings with my boss, but there’s nothing much to do yet, except learn and understand the current system. My boss is really nice though, and he let me tag along his meeting earlier even if it’s just for a short time. I’m learning a lot and I bet I’m going to learn a bit more soon.

It’s just my luck, though, that I got sort of sick since last Monday. Sore throat on Sunday night, colds and slight fever on Monday, asthma on Monday night and today, colds. My mom says it’s from the tension (which I don’t really feel), but I think it’s from all the Nutella I ate last Sunday. Oops. ^^;

Oh, and I don’t exactly have instant buddies in the office just yet, but I’m giving it time. My officemates are funny and everyone is really nice (I mean, people actually greet me good morning and notice me most of the time, instead of being uttely invisible back in OJT days :P). I hope I find some people to eat lunch with at least…but I don’t mind eating lunch alone just yet because I have some books for company. Of course, I’ll run out of money and grow considerably fatter if I keep on eating at fast food chains. Haha. In God’s time. :)

Anyway, I better stop here. I’ll post a more detailed (if possible) entry next time and I’ll try to get some pictures just for fun. :D I need to go to bed already, doctor’s orders. :P God bless everyone. :) And thanks for the prayers! Keep them coming? :D Good night! :)

Calling in sick

I think I’m going to miss the first day of Job Expo at school tomorrow. I’m still kind of sick — and now I’m slightly heaving from the asthma. My nose is still clogged and I’m feeling kind of weak. Darn colds. Oh well. Let’s see tonight if I’m well enough to go tomorrow.

Last night was the second to last SFC-CLP (for those who don’t know, it means Singles for Christ Christian Life Program. It’s the entry point to SFC) and in my opinion, it was a pretty good wrap up. :) And instead of a discussion group, we had an open forum, and one thing struck me last night: to be able to move on to SFC, one must really embrace the SFC culture. I have to admit, I was a bit hesitant to be chummy with all of them because I feel like I’m too serious and all that. If not too serious, too young. But then again, I knew that God placed me there for a reason and that it’s His will for me to be there at the particular SFC chapter. Anyway, last night I felt once again that I will be able to move on and fit in with these people. I can’t wait to have a household (FYI: household is the term we use in the community for cell groups. Mighty fun :p).

Earlier today, on our way home from the mass, I got to see someone I haven’t seen for the longest time: Ate Tinapie! :) She’s one of my triplet. See, during my YFC-High School Based days, there were three of us in the sector: me, Ate Tinapie and Ate Tynna. Three Tina/Tynna’s. :) That’s why I became Tinamats because to avoid confusion. Anyway, I haven’t seen her for the longest time, and she got married last January — and now she’s pregnant! I can’t believe how time flies. :D She’s going back to Timor Leste next week though, because that’s her mission area with Kuya Anthony, her husband. But it was so good to see her again! :)

Anyway, seeing her reminded me of all those fun High School Based moments. :D

I finished reading Savannah from Savannah and Savannah by the Sea by Denise Hildreth and I’ll get to the reviews in the next few days. I read too fast. But then again, I have nothing to do anyway. I still have one unread book — Blink by Ted Dekker. Next time, Ted. I’ll read you next time.

I need to go finish my ginger tea and pray now, but I shall leave you with a quote from Savannah by the Sea:

“That’s what the right person does. But they don’t create it. Only the Creator can create…You’ve got to deal with your heart. Because until you can be trusted with your own heart, you can’t be trusted with someone else’s.”
– Savannah Philips, to her best friend Paige Long, p.300
