Of Work, Coming Home and my Post Valentine Blues

Today is February 15, 2012. Let this be a day of Awakening. I am officially opening my doors to the Universe. I am imagining awesome things so please help me out here.

I woke up today with a sick stomach, somewhat thanking the Universe for this ill feeling, I went downstairs to eat breakfast. I saw my brother and told him that I am not feeling well and I assume that he has already predicted how my day would end up. I decided to stay home and sleep for the next few hours.

I woke up after 3 hours, thinking to myself, what now? What’s next? It felt like I have come to that point in my young life (yes, I call myself young because I pretty much am) where I can say that I am ready to move on to other things. Such drama huh? I couldn’t agree with you more dear Reader. Just to give you an idea, here are my thoughts earlier today while lying on my bed overdosing on caffeine.

1.) I am working for a good company and I am blessed that the higher ups believe in me.

2.) However, I am still unhappy.

3.) I belong someplace else. I am 100% sure.

4.) I want a Life to Live. No regrets.

And as Steve Jobs playfully stated,

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

I am coming Home and I have never been this excited. What’s going to happen next? I have no idea. Uncertainty is so beautiful.

Speaking of uncertainties, I celebrated Valentines with my partner in crime—Miguel, who by the way, was early yesterday. You deserve to be recognized for being early. And I apologize for not being able to control myself. I kept poking your armpits relentlessly and it was fun. Trust me, it was FUN. Anyway, I didn’t know what his plan was. I’ve always enjoyed surprises and I know that he has always been good at organizing surprises. I, on the other hand, just expected to be swept off my feet just because this is one of a few times in a year where I am allowed to feel a little girly. Maybe just a little.

Before lunch, I received a call from Miguel asking me if I can meet him at my office ground floor. I knew he was up to something but didn’t know what it was. When I got down, I saw him holding a paper bag filled with goodies. What was in it?

Exhibit A: Large Coke float from Mc Donalds

Exhibit B: Large fries from Mc Donalds

Exhibit C: A container with home cooked chicken nuggets and lots of ketchup

Exhibit D: A box of Silvanas all the way from Dumaguete

Exhibit E: Post Its with short messages

Not only was I happy with the food, I was pleased with his words. I haven’t received a personalized note in the longest time and this made me ecstatic. Pictures to follow.

We went to Itallianis for dinner to cap off the night. While eating, he took out a Ticketnet envelope and showed it to me. Here’s our exact conversation:

Me: Ano yan? (smiling)

Miguel: Envelope, galing kay Bum.

Me: Ahh, envelope lang.

Miguel: I got you something else.

(Yes, I felt bad. I thought he got me Death Cab for Cutie tickets.)

After a few seconds, he handed the same envelope to me, but this time it did contain something.

This boy sure knows how to surprise me.

I am coming for you Ben Gibbard and the rest of Death Cab for Cutie. See you on March 5 kids.

To my darling, thank you for making yesterday a relaxing and fun day for both of us. I love you.

I like it when you sing to me.

Lights will guide you home.
