Let’s have coffee | April 2018

Guys!!!! April is done. I love that I’m only doing our coffee dates once a month. I feel like I have all these stories just waiting to be shared! I’m pumped. Let’s go sit and talk more about how awesome our April was. 

If we were having coffee, the first thing I’d tell you is we finally moved! After months of waiting, it finally happened. The move itself was uneventful. I think I packed a lot of my things without really thinking that the space we’re moving into is a lot smaller than my family’s home. Not to brag or something but my old bedroom is bigger than our master bedroom! There’s a lot of adjustments to be made but I am willing and ready to make all of it. It’s fun but it’s also kind of lonely. I was so used to having a lot of people around me (especially my nephews and niece) that coming home to an empty house is very new. I’m getting the hang of it now but there are days when I’d want the kids here just for the noise.

If we were having coffee, I’d also share with you that every day I ride the jeep. I’m not a fan of jeeps because my old city has buses and that’s all you’ll ever need to get to point A from point B. It’s taking a lot of getting used to. I honestly feel like crying sometimes because I feel like my skin is getting damaged because of the daily commute. (Yes, you can call me a maarte but I have invested a lot in my skin already.) Plus the fact that when you ride jeeps you always have to rush and push people. Why can’t we just fall in line sometimes?

If we were having coffee, I’d also tell you that I almost had a mental breakdown the other day. I felt like crying because I was in line for more than an hour for a jeep. I was annoyed and tired. I just wanted to go back to my old city. I almost texted Mike that I wasn’t going to come home but I knew that doing so wasn’t the right choice. I know that I’m not that good with changes and the last week of April was the most challenging of all the weeks of my existence. Let me be honest and tell you that my parents gave me the best life (a comfortable life) and the change from the best to semi-best is freaking me out. Please don’t get me wrong and think that I’m too privileged or whatever it’s just that I need time to process these changes. I’ll get used to it. I’ll adjust. I just need time.

If we were having coffee, I’d reassure you that despite all these changes I’m ecstatic to start this new life with my husband. Just this morning we did laundry and let me tell you I am not used to doing any chores, lol. I like it though. I’d do anything for this guy. It’s going to take months before I can finally say I’m used to this thing but even so, I am ready to make all these changes.

To end this month’s little coffee date, if we were having coffee, I’d do a shameless plug of my shop. I opened an account with Carousell where I post some of my preloved items. Since I did bring quite a lot of things, I’m using this moment to downsize and let go some items that have no more use for me. #minimalism Who knows, maybe you’d find something you’ll like! Since I’m going to do meet-ups, maybe you and I can meet up for a real coffee date too! 😉

April was filled with amazing experiences. I can’t wait for May to see where all these changes take me. How was your April like? Tell me more about it in the comments below!

  1. Hi Kat, hanga ako alam mo, sa slow transition niyo, sa paglipat ng bahay, planado lahat and everything kasi kami parang laging walang plano at kung ano na lang maisipan HAHA anyway, you’ll get used to the new life. I am actually having a coffee in the office while reading this.

    1. Medyo perfectionist din ako. Gusto ko lahat planado. Mas nasstress ako pag bahala na si batman mode. Hahahaa!!! Si hubby naman bahala na lagi yung mode kaya alam mo na lagi ako stressed sa kanya! Hahaha!! Pag umuwi ka magkape talaga tayo. 🙂


  2. Waahh it’s been a while since I’ve read blogs. Congratulations for the new chapter!!! Good luck in riding the jeep bc they can be really stressful af!!!! You’ll get used to it, you gotta fight for your spot in there or else you’re gonna have to squat the whole ride LOL

  3. BURGIS TALAGA E. Hahahaha. Oh I’ve been there. Yung transition from almost every single thing being handed to you to being thrown into the “real world” not knowing how to do this and that. Gurl, at least you’re trying. Yun ang mahalaga. Tapos pag nabwiset ka na, pagawa mo lahat sa asawa mo. Hahahahaha charot.

    At yang jeep na yan, my god. Big no no yan sa akin. As much as possible, iniiwasan ko talaga. Tangina init init sa Pilipinas. Plus, magugulo buhok ko. HAHAHAHAHA

      1. Same. Kahit naman ako magbbreak down niyan. Actually, been there. Nagbreak down na ko before. Until I got the hang of it after years. Hahaha. Although, nakatira pa rin naman ako sa bahay namin. It’s just a different and yet somehow similar change of something sa life ko lang :p

        You’ll get the hang of it soon. Balita ko nga laba day mo kahapon e. Hahahaha


  4. “you always have to rush and push people. Why can’t we just fall in line sometimes?” — ito yun e. Wish ko talaga magkaron ng structure sa jeep na every 5 to 10 minutes, assured ka na may dadaan tapos swelduhan na rin ang driver, para di nag-uunahan. Lagi kong sinasabi magjjeep na ako. Pero ang dami kong dalang pagkain, parang dala ko na buong ref. Haaay.

    1. Kahapon nag commute ako with baon. (Well breakfast lang kasi di pa ako super prepared, pero at least nag baon ako) tapos gusto ko mang box out para protektahan yung niluto ko. Ang intense. Ang pangit din kasi ng working conditions nila kaya minsan hindi ko naman masisi na ganon ang systema. I wish mas maging okay soon for both parties


      1. Totoo. Sa ngayon di talaga masisi. Sa current structure parang kelangan na lang talaga tanggapin yung current. Adventure every day.
