I’ll be honest. Today, I don’t feel like working. I don’t have cases to work on (which is great) and it has sucked me into this black hole called WordPress. I have been commenting, scheduling, and drafting posts since 8AM. I feel productive. This is the kind of work that gets me going. This is also the kind of work that doesn’t pay the bills if you don’t sell a part of your soul. I have no immediate plans of selling myself to consumerism so I’m going to enjoy my workΒ today by working on my blog. πŸ™‚

Here are February 13th’s ten reasons why I’m happy:

  1. I met with Aila yesterday. It was so fun. I was honestly scared and anxious but it all felt natural. She really made me feel at ease from the moment I saw her! I thought it was going to be super awkward that’s why we scheduled it at lunch but wow! It was such a fun experience. I wasn’t expecting anything from meeting her but now I just want to be her legit real life friend.
  2. I’m getting excited that our wedding is right around the corner. Finally, I can go back to being chill and just enjoy my relationship with my partner. I also want to watch a lot of k-dramas, movies, series and read books! I’m excited to get my time back and save money again for travels.
  3. I am excited and happy about getting married. Mike has always been such a stable partner and I like stable. It might be a safe choice but I need and want someone who loves me as much as Mike loves me. (This was brought about by that Sharon Cuneta thing on Facebook. Team Kiko, for the win!)
  4. I’m also very very very happy that because I’m getting married, I’m getting a chance to see all my longtime friends who became pixels on my phone. We’re seeing each other a lot recently. I love that even if my circle is small, I still have trusted friends who understand and support me.
  5. Victoria recently gave me access to her e-books collection. After writing and publishing this post, I plan to waste the rest of my working hours by reading a book. What more can a girl wish for?
  6. I stopped writing this post mid-way to book a flight to Japan this year. I AM SO EXCITED. Japan has now become a favorite of mine. I honestly don’t know how I’m going to pay for it but I’m still pushing through with it. I just hope I don’t get terminated from my job anytime soon.
  7. I am happy about my decision to sell a stock I was losing money with and gain back a few pesos because of the new stock I bought. I think I just gained back the money I lost BUT I’m just happy I’m making wiser decisions when it comes to the stock market. I still have a long way to go but these small victories really make it all worth it.
  8. I’m ecstatic about this Fitbit I bought. I bought it because Mike and I were having an argument and I resorted to retail therapy. It’s not needed and my usual minimalist self is cringing but I just love it. It’s such an upgrade from my Vivofit! I don’t want to remove it from my arm anymore.
  9. Mike and I were able to watch The XX the other week. IT WAS THE BEST CONCERT EVER. I’m still giddy over it because I just got a copy of the pictures and videos we took. I really love their music and style. Did you know that the first concert Mike and I attended together was there 2013 concert here? How apt was it that we are ending our boyfriend-girlfriend relationship by watching their concert a week before our marriage!
  10. Lastly, I’m happy with my life. It’s not that perfect and there are for sure some things that need improvement but so far I like where I’m going and headed. There’s a lot of question marks but I’m just glad and content with how things are going. I hope this feeling lasts for a long time.

That’s it, that’s today’s list! Your turn! What are you happy about today?

  1. Reading the reasons why you’re happy made me happy. Sometimes the little and simplest things in life are the greatest source of happiness.

    It’s good to know na babalik kayo ng Japan (honeymoon?). I’m so intrigued about Japan and part of me is excited to explore the country. On the other side husband can’t make up his mind, the last time I talked to him he said he wanted to visit Japan and now he want to explore Caucasus. Hahaha. Naguluhan ako!

    1. When I make lists like this, it’s the time when I feel saddest. The goal is to remind myself that even small things can make me happy. Minsan kasi ang dali i-overlook and super guilty ako diyan!

      Ayyy, akala ko tuloy na kayo pupunta πŸ˜› I had to Google Caucasus! Hahaha wherever naman kayo pumunta basta magkasama I bet happy and memorable pa din yan πŸ™‚

    1. Diba! What’s wrong with stable? After all the heartbreak she experienced with men who ‘loved’ her? We’re going sometime November, nakalimutan ko yung exact date LOL. Kayo ba???
