Dear Work, This is too much, I can't catch up. I know you are a blessing in disguise but today I am not liking you. You are overflowing. Literally! I have so many dues. I can't find time to finish everything on time. Arghhh!!! Dear Runner, Runner movie, I would enjoy you more if you were a marathon movie. I don't like gambling. But I do enjoy ogling Timberlake and Affleck though. Plus the sponsor for the movie gave away loot bags and free food. Dear Husband, You are the sweetest. Thanks for everything. Dear Weather, I hate you. Dear Cebu Pacific Seat Sales, Enough already. My bestfriend Dinah is too weak to resist the opportunity to book flights for our group. And we are all too powerless to say no. Who would pass an opportunity to travel with friends and collect more happy memories. Money matters? Please! Duh! Dear Someone, Thank you for being 'not' my friend. Dear Me, Take a breather.

So many things to do, so little time (and money). This is my usual dilemma. Since my birthday last week (I am 37 now by the way) I felt very left out. Left out in life, that is. My greatest frustration is that I didn't get my degree in college. At my age, and my work term of 12 years in trading business, I feel that I am underpaid and unappreciated. And the biggest factor, for me, in leaving my current employer to find a greener pasture is my educational attainment. I took all my subjects in college but never graduated. I never had the chance to apply for graduation. Things became complicated by that time. Don't ask. In short....I WANT TO GO TO SCHOOL AGAIN AND EARN MY DEGREE!!! I am considering applying at an Open University program but I'm a little bit hesitant. It's the age thing. Baka mapurol na utak ko, nakakahiya! But if not now, when?
Another thing, an "old friend" commented if I became a millionaire since I travel frequently these days. I don't know what century (or planet) he is from. Duh! If I am a millionaire I won't work anymore just to earn sufficiently for a BUDGET travel once or twice or thrice a year. I haven't been out of the country yet. Well, I unfriended this person from my facebook account already. I never explained myself, I don't owe him that. I travel on my own expense at my own time. If not now, when?
Lastly, I want our house renovated by next year. Whether my husband like it or not! It's high time we build the second floor. My daughter is already crying for an elbow room around the house. So dear husband, do something! No buts, no ifs.

It's one of those weekend when my body tells me that I had enough. I am sick again. I have this thing with my stomach I don't get. It always act up. Plus I have a constant migraine. And my fever never fails to come every weekend. I really hate being sick. I don't get to do what I want. I don't get to eat what I like. And I look awful. Sigh....

Beginning today I am on my own. I will stop depending on others. I will provide for myself. I am responsible for my actions. I will not ask vindication from others. I will be happy and not because of 'other' people. I will be mindful of those "PAASA"-type of person. I will distance myself from those people who are always putting me down. I don't want to be a part of a meaningless relationship. I know it sound harsh but it is how I feel. It's how life is. Unfair. And I am losing faith in humanity. So beginning today I will not care anymore. My business is my business alone.
