A bit of Sharing before Ten.
I said I'll definitely sleep exactly at ten o' clock tonight. Well, it's six minutes past nine, and I am still starting at this blog I have to publish.
Today was another normal exhausting heck of a day. My head hurt right after work day was done, which was both a relief and a hassle, because I had to bear with it traveling home, but at least, I did not have to struggle with it while working.
Must be because of my habit of tying my hair even it's still wet. I know your eyes are now rolling, but I can't keep it down. My hair is moody—at times, it's manageable, mostly, it's not. It has its own life, and it's in the mood of flying away this morning. Thus, I had to keep it all together, like how I am trying my best in my life, too. (Damn, hugot.)
I chose to walk my way back home after the jeepney, instead of the usual jeepney then trike thing. First, I want to exercise, second, I have to reduce expenses.
I have been budgeting so hard since the last week of June, dude. I miss having milktea, or random visits at KFC or McDo. I could not do all these things, because I am tight on budget. Now, you see me again lurking around here, and you might think it's because I have to have money. Well, it's partly the reason. The main reason is, I want to keep my stats here nice. I promised myself to be a good example of being a good writer here. I may not be the most talented, but I follow the rules, I interact, I give back when I can, I don't spam, I enjoy.
Thankfully, a new blessing is coming. Thank God. I hope this would be the last week I'd have to tighten my belt. I deserve a solo date! A massage! And if more financially possible, a chiropractor appointment. It's one of my dreams, truth be told!
I am supposed to continue towards the 17tg day of the 30 Days writing challenge, but for some reason, I could not think right about what I should share: "Ways to win my heart". I am not in the mood to think about it. I believe it just happens. Right? How could I know? I just had these specific guys as my crush, and they did not even have enough reasons I could say why they captured my attention lol.
This is becoming dull, maybe. I just want to share how my day went. It's been a while since I did some story-telling.
Morning breakfast is cabbage dish. Lunch time, I had tuna sauted with tomatoes and onions. I loved it. Tonight, our dinner viand is adobong pusit. I bought some fish cracker to it. Best with vinegar. Had seven to eight glasses of water today. The inly snack I had is the Presto biscuit, the peanut butter-flavored one.
My, the time's now 09:18, can I still sleep at 10? I have to type more quickly.
Maybe, tightening the budget helped me reduce salt and sweet intake. When I had extra budget, I enjoyed lots of sweet treats, such as ice cream, smoothies, milk tea, chocolates, and other junkfoods, such as chips, among others. Maybe the universe also wants me to lose some weight I gained during the period I just enjoyed eating more than exercising. I still have a bit of a tiny belly fat in my lower abdominal area that's bothering me. It's hard to exercise because I feel lazy to do so! My, thanks to this self-care app I recently installed, I am encouraged to do at least 5 jumping jacks, and few minutes planking a day. It helped so much, little by little. I know how to manage my weight well.
Let me just take a break and brush my teeth first. My younger bro is glaring at me.
Just finished brushing my teeth, washing my face, and doing the bed. I feel sleepy already and it's seventeen minutes to ten.
A quick recap of today's work before I visit dreamland. I started the morning reminding myself of urgent tasks. I prioritized them first, and separated my tasks into two. I only got to focus on that one task (more urgent) for today, and got a very few left, because of some system error in our accounting system, and also due to confusion regarding receipt rules and guidelines.
The other task is piling up again, and I feel another friend coming by, yes, backlogs pt. 10000. I never run out of backlogs these days. It's okay, I chose to increase my responsibility. I took this challenge. Soon enough, I'll be able to find a way to handle all of it in a more relaxed manner. Watch me, self. Watch me.
How did your day go?
I felt kinda bad about babbling personal stories here, so I want to know how your day went, too.
Is it at work? At school? At home? Anywhere else? What are the significant things you did today? Was it productive? Are you satisfied?
The self care app I installed and used recently always reminds me to state at least one thing I am grateful of before I sleep. And for today, I am thankful I got through Monday successfully. I am not fond of this day, but I did a good job. I woke up earlier to iron my uniform, I was still able to do a bit of laundry after bath, and work's busy and productive. I thank God for giving me another chance for another day again. To start and fix things right, to be a better version of myself.
I am grateful that I had three good meals, that I went to and from work safely, that all my loved ones are safe, that I got to exercise through walking earlier this afternoon instead of commuting. I got a good sleep in the jeepney for more or less an hour. I listened to a good playlist on Spotify, perfect for walking. And now, I am comfortably lying on my back, writing this. All the lights are off, and I am feeling the greatest urge to sleep.
I don't feel that guilty sleeping tonight because I know I worked hard today. It's not a bad idea, after all, to intentionally have flashbacks of myself starting my Monday, until this moment. It's like I am watching myself from a bird's point of view. I moved a lot, talked to lots of people, finished half of my tasks, while simultaneously covering up (again) for a colleague who took a sick leave today. Whoa. I really had reasons to be this tired.
Grateful that the headache's gone after a nice meal.
Okay, so right now, it's 09:54 pm, and that means, so close to my sleep time. I enjoyed sharing a slice of my life to y'all today, and I hope you enjoyed it, too. Feel free to share how your day went, too. I'd love to hear from you.
Thanks for reading, until next time!

Sana all bedtime at 10pm, struggle ko talaga matulog ng maaga haaayys.. Anyway, I feel you about missing milktea and my usual cravings/ foodtrip, mahal na lahat talaga at kelangan na mag budget ng bongga.
