it's a pleasure to be listened to

If you ask me today what kind of job I would want to do if I weren't doing what I am doing today, the first thing that comes to my mind is the teaching profession. Hopefully, someday I would get to fulfill this. However, there's another dream job that I would also want to try one day and that is to be a DJ. One of the challenges of aspiring DJs, though, is on their ability and willingness to learn how to operate different kinds of technology as they come. For me, I think I'd make a good DJ because I can imagine myself having fun while getting my hands busy with any DJ equipment. I thought it would be great to be listened to or to have an audience when you're talking or when you're playing music. I think this is a job that doesn't really feel like it's a job at all, especially if you're the type who loves music and is not also leaning to only a specific genre. Well, with this really cool job of playing and mixing music and talking to listeners, aging will probably be a slow process. It's definitely a pleasure to be listened to.

the little girl and her pink helmet

Our little preschooler loves her usual routine every weekday and that's because she gets to ride with her father on a bicycle on the way to and going back from school. Although we have a motorcycle, husband doesn't want to drive it when our daughter has to ride in it as well. He feels more at ease to have our daughter with him in the bicycle. After all, school is just around the corner; so, rather than having a pedicab ('trike') driver fetch her to and from school,  he finds it practical if he just pedals the bike through with our daughter as passenger. With this means of transportation, we have also saved a little.  Of course, besides making sure to drive safely and more carefully, he also lets her wear a helmet. He also made sure she is safely harnessed before he drives. Today, I woke up to find him doing some minor tinkering with the bike (added a new seat) as he wants the little girl safely seated in front beginning tomorrow. Speaking of schooldays, though, we are counting just a few days towards their school break. Pretty soon when school is over, she'll be missing the bike rides to and from school. However, besides going on a vacation with the in-laws, I think she also looks forward to spending most of her summer days riding the bike around the neighborhood with her pink helmet.

towards our seventh this year

My husband is not the type who wants to wear jewelries and accessories. Yes, he is that simple. If there's one jewelry that I can ask him to wear, that would have to be our wedding ring; although that, too, is something I would sometimes need to remind him about. Anyway, speaking of my husband, I realized we've been married for almost seven years already. The other day, I jokingly hinted at him that since he did not give me anything on Valentine's Day (he's not the showy or mushy type), the seven years of our marriage very well deserve a Scott Kay wedding band as our anniversary gift for each other this year. Thankfully (not really sure why I said 'thankfully'), he didn't really say No to this suggestion. I thought I should at least feel a pang of hope but he only said to wait another 18 years. LOL. By then, I'm sure I would already have a different wish. Seriously, I'm really not that materialistic; although I also wouldn't mind being spoiled sometimes. I'm already happy we stuck together - for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health. 

feeling recharged

Today, I'm happy I've had the chance to send my little girl off to school. Rarely do I get the chance to do this because of my work schedule. This is why whenever  I would enjoy a day off from work because of a holiday or a service incentive leave, I would always want to spend it by making time with my daughter. When she woke up this morning, she was so happy to see me. At first, she thought it's still a weekend (and that's because she found me not in a rush  to go to work) that she refused to prepare to go to school. She eventually complied after I've explained to her that it's a Monday and that her mom is just enjoying a holiday off. Thanks to Presidents Day, I'm so glad to have enjoyed long weekends at home with the family. Tomorrow is going to be a lot different than today, though; but no matter how busy the rest of the week would turn out for me, I think I am already prepared for it. After all,  I have already recharged myself for a couple of days. Bring it on, yeah!

remembering that jewelry I lost

While commuting on my way home from work, I overheard two passengers talking about their upcoming graduation and how eager they were to attend their Graduation Ball and Ring Hop. They were talking about what to wear to the ball and where they would like to order their class rings from. Someone mentioned that her mom (a nurse abroad) had already ordered at Joy Jewelers and had already scheduled a flight to be with her on her Ring Hop and graduation. How touching! Suddenly, I remembered about my very own class ring which I pawned at a jewelry store (now this is a bit embarrassing) when I was still starting out on my very first job. Oh, I vowed to forget all about it but now I'm accidentally walking down that part of Memory Lane again. I needed extra money then and thought I could get it back within a month or two. Unfortunately, for some reason (and it's a long story which also boils down to financial reasons and a personal choice of priorities), I was not able to redeem it. Nevertheless, if that said class ring would still be with me up until now, I know it would really need some resizing so it would fit my ring finger; although if I were to go back and decide again, I wouldn't let go of my class ring for sentimental reasons. After all, it was my father who paid for it. I told him it would be a great graduation gift for me which he also agreed. How I missed wearing that class ring now! I know I should have cherished and taken cared of it. I would have thought of other ways other than leaving it unclaimed at the jewelry store. Anyway, as my husband was always telling me, there's no room for regrets. That's just jewelry and I already learned my lesson after that. I'll just wish my co-passengers well on their graduation and hope that they will be able to get their dream jobs afterwards.

a storm welcomes February

Today, I'm glad I'm already home when the rain started to fall. How long ago has it been since the last storm? Our country is now again passed by a new typhoon called Basyang. It's Signal #2 here in our region as I am writing this. Hopefully, this storm signal will not be raised any further a few hours from now. It's raining here and a bit windy. Glad I still have Internet at this time. I thought I need to catch up on my blogging itineraries because there's a good chance that we will have no electricity tomorrow. I hope and pray that the storm will leave us peacefully, quietly, and with zero to less damage or casualties.
