This Ash Wednesday, I decided to sacrifice social media for Lent. Eventually, I caved because of the photos accumulating and started posting on Instagram. I still haven't opened my Facebook and Twitter accounts, though. I have to admit I thought I would go crazy but I really feel great about having an escape from the constant stream of trivial info even for just 40 days. Less than 2 weeks from now, Easter will be here. I can't wait. I have this unrelenting feeling God has something in store for me.
Because of my lenten sacrifice, I felt no urge in posting in my blog either. I found solace in not having to talk to anyone all the time. I spent more time reading the Bible. I'm posting today because I feel like I should capture how I'm feeling into words. I feel calm knowing everything will work out. I still get stressed out but I'm learning to deal with it properly. I divide my time into parochial activities, family time, school, writing and my first real job.
Right now, I work in Microsourcing as a Web Content Writer. Not really knowing where this job may lead, I'm enjoying every learning moment. I'm just thankful for everything right now. Sure, I make goals and plans but I've loosened up a little.
I'm also graduating soon. It's scary entering the real world. I don't really feel prepared to leave my comfort zone but didn't someone say outside our comfort zones is where the magic happens?
I'm still alive. Still here. Still His handmaid.
Have a blessed Lenten season.

Ang dami kong naririnig laging nagrereklamo. Kesyo napagtripan ng bisor. Kesyo nakursunada ng camera crew. Kesyo inaalipin sa trabaho. Pinagtitimpla ng kape. Meron pa nga, sa harap ko e napahiya ng guest dahil di marunong magtimpla ng kape. Ang benta ng mga pangyayari pramis. Meron naman sadyang di marunong makisama. Wala e, di maka-ride. Kung ano-anong reklamo. Buti pa ako, ang babait ng mga napupuntahan. (lol what)
De, seryoso. Ako nga ang bait na ng napuntahan nagkakaproblema pa din eh. Wala kasing perfect ojt. Syempre yung 200 hours, di naman sapat para maging super sipag at magaling sa work tapos super best friend pa ng lahat at magaling chumika.
Ang point ko lang naman e wag kang maghanap ng "somewhere you belong" kasi hindi ka naman talaga belong. Trainee ka. Observer. Voyeur. Outsider.
Hamuna. Ilang buwan na lang naman e gagraduate ka na. Saka ka maghanap ng somewhere you belong.

Sadly, Sweet Ecstasy in Cubao Expo was under construction during our visit. It was disappointing because the space was chaotic. It added to the indie charm of the place but the limited space forced us to enjoy our Kahlua Mocha outside. Still, the food was nonetheless gastronomic. Also, fans of RX 93.1 should swing by the place and maybe grab a milkshake with Fran and her adorable kiddo who happened to be there when we arrived.
