Warm Mornings

The sun peeping through her window wakes her up,  her lips then breaks into a smile as she opens her still dreamy eyes whilst her mind goes on to thinking about what is more beautiful than waking up in a comfortable bed, in a gorgeous cheery bright morning with the intoxicating smell of brewing coffee wafting in the air. And to top it all that, having your man laying beside you, looking at you with those beguiling eyes as he says “Good morning beautiful. I made you breakfast.”  then gives you a smile so charming that certainly melts your heart.

SUNDAY

                                                   Sun rays peeping through my window
                                                   Unto my eyes shining brightly, waking me up
                                                   Nestled in my own cozy and comfortable bed
                                                   Dead tired from yesterday’s actions
                                                   A steaming mug of coffee to fuel the body and
                                                   You beside me for companion and security

Weekend Coffee Date

If we were having coffee …

I’d tell you that the last presidential debate just finished, I did intend not to watch it but the debate was too long that I still caught up the latter half of it and now my brain is throbbing. My mind has somehow made an effort to absorb the presidential candidates’ platforms and speeches and I’m glad to say that the debate helped to narrow down my bet to two. I know there’s only one vote for president as to whether who among the two will I be voting on the 9th of May, I have to say I still am unsure.

If we were having coffee …

I’d tell you that my friend, who is also a nurse, just got me a part-time job in her clinic. I am not going to handle patients, what I will do is to collate, interpret and encode the patients annual physical exam results. Meaning I will be sitting in a comfortable chair, facing the computer, in a cold office in an eight hour work day but I’m also allowed to have overtime if I’d like to, which is totally fine with me because it also mean extra money. I actually had started on Saturday which was yesterday and I enjoyed it, although I was a little slow at first because I got a little confused about how to interpret but once I got the hang of it, I was definitely a lot faster.

If we were having coffee …

I’d tell you that I have been thinking for quite a while my desire to change my blog’s name, which had been on my mind since last year. I am thinking of something that will still imply the same meaning as my current one.

If we were having coffee …

I’d probably ask you as to whether it’s okay or not to post my tagalog poems here as well. I’d thought about making another blog solely for my tagalog writings but I just don’t want to have the hassle having to manage another account, I can barely manage this one. So, please tell me, what do you think about it, shall I or shall I not post my tagalog writing here too?

That’s all for me this week lovelies. Feel free to tell me or share with me what you been up to this week or anything that happened to you. Let’s meet up again next week. 🙂 You all have a good week ahead.

Time surely flies so fast, it’s that time again, our weekend coffee date.

If we were having coffee …

I’d probably complain just like any other people living here in the Philippines, about the unbearable scorching summer heat that is being aggravated by El Niño. Dang! I have blurted out such complain for countless of times already. The heat is zapping my energy, I feel tired, I’m having more trouble sleeping and I just don’t want to move and do anything for being hot and sweaty: the things that really irritates me so much. I also have found myself many times gasping for air for I felt suffocated.

If we were having coffee …

I’d tell you that I enjoyed hanging out with my friend last Friday, I’ve met with her at the mall to give her back the papers that I’ve helped her process and encode. Although the travel was a pain because just like what I’ve said it was super hot and I was sweating bullets when I arrived at the mall. We had lasagna for dinner for we were both craving for that at that time while we shared stories, after that we went to some stores and browsed through stuff. We then left the mall to the weekend night market near her workplace and she treated me to a juice with chunks of fresh fruits and it was divine.

If we were having coffee …

I’d tell you that this week I’ve rediscovered some of the things that I used to love, from music, movies to foods, styles etc. I also have develop a fascination for bullet journaling (BuJo) and any foods that are cheesy. With that, I remember that I went out last night to the supermarket to buy a bag cheesy chips. Yep, for that one bag I didn’t bother to line at the back of the super long line for the cashier.

If we were having coffee …

I’d tell you that as I am typing up this post, I can feel my head throbbing. My brain is in pain for too much information and too much political terms which are really dizzying as I just finished watching the Vice-Presidential debate. I have to say that it was a peaceful and professional one, I mean they weren’t causing ruckus and fighting like small children. The election is just around the corner and I must admit that until now I still haven’t decided who to vote, until then, that’s one thing to ponder about.

That’s all for now. Let’s meet up for a coffee date again next week. 🙂

If we were having coffee …

I’d probably ask you if we can go somewhere with a nice view where we can appreciate our hot cup of joe and chill and chat. It has been a long while since the last time I went out, I couldn’t even remember when was the last time. I miss getting made up and enjoy the outside world, I have been cooped up here at home since December, yep last year. See, how boring my life is?

If we were having coffee …

I’d tell you that this past few days, it has been full of reminders of my past. I had a glimpse of what I used to like, of how I used to think, my plans and my dreams, basically, I had a lot of reminders of how and who I was as a person.  I know it sounds so dramatic but it’s the truth though.

If we were having coffee …

I’d like to tell you that I have been enjoying a lot of things lately but now that I am thinking about it, I cannot specifically enumerate what they are, the mind is blanking out. How funny is that? I have started watching a new show Criminal Minds: Beyond Border, honestly, I got interested about it because it stars Gary Sinise, who has been in CSI: NY and I loved him in that. It’s different from CSI – if you know me, you’ll know my addiction with the CSI series – but I’m liking it so far. I also got back in reading books, I actually have finished two recently and again, the feeling made me realized why I have fallen in love with reading in the first place and I so missed it. And last night, I have developed a fascination for vintage and eerie photos.  I stayed up all night, completely lost track of time for I have been scouring pinterest for all those beautiful photos and before I knew it, it was already 7 in the morning. I think I now understand how dangerous pinterest can be. Allow me to share some of my favorites:

The first picture was the grand staircase of the Titanic, the second was the coal miners – child laborers of before, and the last one was a photo of a mom and daughter – aren’t they lovely? I’ve seen a lot of old photos from a lot of familiar names like Anne Frank, Pocahontas, Amelia Earhart and many more, so that made me scour photos from the Philippine history.

I’ve seen photos of our national heroes, a lot of Dr. Jose Rizal of course – my ever so favorite idol – presidents, old streets of Manila, churches but what got me really smitten was the beauties of the Filipinas. Who says Filipinas aren’t pretty? Who says Filipiniana isn’t classy and elegant? Just look at them. Okay, I’ll stop now, I am getting really carried away here. 😀

That’s all for now. Let’s do it again next time. ^^

Brain Dump: ‘Me’ At This Moment

I am feeling blank right at this very second as I am typing up this post. Seriously? Blank? Is that even a feeling? Just like the current status of every aspect and areas of my life, BLANK. Empty. My mind though isn’t empty at all. It is currently full of these thoughts, concerns, worries and a lot of frustrations that I don’t even know what to address first. I am that overwhelmed that instead of feeling panicked, I just couldn’t react except for my fingers which still have the guts to tap on the keyboard to type up this post which I doubt will have sense in the end.

This week I sent out resumes to the hospitals which are my dream work place but not as a nurse yet. That’s my choice really, I am starting to question my competency as a nurse after all these years of not practicing so might as well not shock myself to get in the profession in this instant. I plan to do that eventually, I just take this as a warm up before I dive into the stressful yet rewarding world of nursing. Hopefully. I applied for a position that is still somehow related to nursing and one of the hospitals have actually texted me and invited me to an interview on Monday and maybe that explains the building anxiety in my gut.

This week also I have indulged myself to youtube, well honestly that just seems like the only thing I can do right now, watching videos and films, since I am not really in the mood to read anything. I am just not feeling it. I have actually started reading Amy Poehler’s Yes Please but I don’t know if I just wasn’t not in the mood or if I just wasn’t really into reading such kind or genre of books. But through this tons of hours of watching I discover a new obsession. While I was watching CSI last night, my all time obsession, I saw the trailer for the show The Whispers which have really intrigued me like a lot since the first time I saw it. Just too bad though because it is being aired in the cable channel that isn’t included in our subscription which pisses me off greatly but of course what’s the internet for if you’re not gonna use it, right?

So yeah, yesterday I watched the first 3 episodes and today I finished the other 4, meaning I’m all caught up with the episodes and yes I’m all hooked! That’s why I’m obsess! I find it really intriguing. Take it from a person who isn’t a fan of sci-fi. And since I’ve watched all the episodes so far, I have the movie Private Number buffering in the other tab of this google chrome tab. I told you, that’s the only area where I can get productive these days.

I remember, my brother received his first pay in his new job and my mom has been teasing me with that telling me that the brother has been enjoying his salaries while I sulk in this room spending so much time in Youtube. It’s a friday night and a lot of my friends and people are going out tonight for sure while I, on other hand, is here in front of my laptop with a steaming mug of coffee beside it and in my pajamas with a buffering Private Ryan waiting to be watched after posting this post which I hope is a good movie. Fingers cross.

Happy life, isn’t it? The Bum Life.

ii. Simple Pleasures

12The smell of the air is intoxicating
Donuts cooking and coffee brewing
Sniffing the scents are so indulging
Soft music, in the background is playing

This coffee shop is about to close
But it doesn’t stop making doughs
People still lining up to get their dose
While contemplating what flavor to choose
