The year 2017 is about to end and I know I’ve been in MIA for such a long time. This is my longest in my entire social media life. Anyway, a lot of things had happened. I believe this is the most challenging year I ever had in my entire UAE stay. I’ve been working my butt all throughout, studying and a bunch of things. I usually go for my annual leave but this time, I went just for 10 days. It was short but well worth it. During that time, I had the most memorable moment in Makati when I cried in the street of Gil Puyat and I don’t even know how I was able to cross the pedestrian because I thought I will fail. Most probably people were thinking I was heartbroken. haha! Now, I’m just laughing on it. There were also some decisions meant to be regretted and I agree. Lesson learnt. Stay away from toxic people. 🙂
I realized that I am now on the stage of what you call as adulting. I feel like resting at home most of the time, weekly groceries became less except to some pasalubongs, and you get happy when someone gave you a household item as a gift. Haha!
I have to say an early Hello to the New year. I wonder what’s in store for me. 2017 gave me one of the best accomplishment I ever had in my life. I hope the next year will be the continuation of everything.
Happy New Year.
P.S. I still have to post my 2017 vacation. TT.TT
… very soon. ^^
I was MIA for quite a long time. But I’ll try to be active again.
I’ve been LSS with this song for a few days now and it just hits my heart. haha!
It’s just all about an unrequited love. It’s in Korean though. And aside from that, the aegyoness is just too much. haha!
Well, the song said:
“If I express it, I fear we’ll grow distant
Losing you is unthinkable
If I express it, I fear we’ll grow distant
Losing you is unthinkable”
I have this Oppa and we’ve been talking for some time, still!!!!
Can I still run? These are the words that were on my mind the past few days.
When this is one of the things that makes me happy and active. So I had a terrible back pain for the past few days. I thought it can be managed by massage but no. I decided to see our neurosurgeon and asked his advice. He gave me a muscle relaxant, a pain reliever, and an MRI scan just to have a peace of mind. I was bargaining not to give me any medicine that might make me drowsy, but I have to give up. Taking the muscle relaxant for the first three days was not pleasant. I want to sleep the whole day. But the pain was not gone. My MRI Scan appointment has come. Unfortunately, that day was so busy and good thing I made an evening appointment. What they’re saying about the MRI Scan is true. If you’re claustrophobic, you can’t do it. And it’s quite loud, the technician will give you a headset. Some say there is music but for me, there’s none. Haha! Good thing, I don’t need to remove my braces as I only have to do the back.
Ok, the result. I thought it’s good as I can’t see anything much until the technician told me that there’s a little problem. The disc between the lumbar 5 and sacral 1 slipped and compressing the nerve. I did not expect that this is the cause of my constant back problem. I thought I was just tired. And it’s been a long time I did weights in the gym. I don’t do weights anymore. I was sad. The first thing came to my mind, I can’t run anymore. I remember I was planning to join a track and field group but now, it’s shattered.
As I talked to the doctor, informally, he suggested only a surgery if I don’t respond to the medicine. And I am planning to taper it off soon! I’m a bad patient. -.-
I’ll be in a total lifestyle modification. I might opt to brisk walking or swimming. I just can’t give up not working out. Thinking about it makes me cringe.
Well, let’s hope for the best though. ^^
It’s been raining like crazy the past few days and also today. Thankfully I’m off and one of the reason I’m lazy to get out of the house. haha! I realized that after some years of staying abroad, you get lazy to go out. All I want to do is to rest. Most probably the pressure and the stress at work is too much these days.
So last Tuesday I was in Abu Dhabi and I’m glad Doctor V had some government work to do, I decided to take an off too and do some of my paper works. But the rain stopped me from going very early, the bus left when I arrived at the station no breakfast and damn, too much traffic jam on my way.
I finished on that day too and had decided to visit my cousin and a friend. I had my lunch with them
because I was literally hungry and then helped my niece do some of her projects. Auntie duties. haha! And when I was about to go, I just got an emergency call so I have to cut my stay in the city short. It’s one of the most stressful days in our life. But everything is well now.
I was almost there in Grand Mosque. Unfortunately it was raining and as I had said I was really hungry so I skipped going there. And thanks to my handy dandy book, I can refresh my mind with some work stuffs while on the go.
And I got this turtle from Maldives! Thanks to Dr V for this. haha!
No year will never be great. I just can’t imagine that it’s been three years (almost!) since I was away from home celebrating Christmas and soon the New Year.
Another tons of ups and downs. I went for vacation in the middle of the year and it was awesome. I finally got to see the northern part of my country and it’s superb! Some decisions I had to make and I didn’t regret though. I feel like traveling but I have to delay it. Soon it’ll happen. Inshallah! Let’s not talk about love because nothing happened in this year. Haha! I’ll just focus on my career. Though I’m still talking to this guy for more than a year.
I’m still crossing my fingers for the next year that everything will turn out fine at most time. XD And thanks for everything. ^^
Before the year ends and I’m supposed to have a long weekend, but there’s a=an emergency surgery. Woohoo~
Have a great new year!
I have to pop my pill. It’s been some time the last time I took it. I thought it was resolved. Working out in the morning helped a lot but this time it was something. I tend to think too much. Too much… There’ll be an upcoming inspection. And I was assigned to lead the team. I am not used to it. I wonder, why me? I have to overcome it, right? I can do it. Optimism rather than pessimism.
Happy weekend~ More overtime on the next few days~
