more than 3 hours of tennis in this heat is no bueno, especially after a weight training class haha
just got out of the shower which is exactly where i headed after i got home. & this was the first time that i can remember VOLUNTARILY taking a cold shower!
off to cook breakfast for dinner with the boy :) 

getting back into the swing

Filed under: main — aireen @ 12:37 am

i’ve done a significant amount of the post for cabo & signed up a new blog, so now i’m just wondering a few things…

  1. if i should just start posting in the new blog now, or wait for a bit
  2. if i should just wait until i finish the WHOLE post on cabo (A WHOLE LOAD OF PICTURES!) & publish it as one humongous post or…
  3. break it down into a few posts 

in any case, i think i’ll be back into the swing of blogging again, i’m having a whole lotta things in my head which prevents me to sleep at night haha, so i’m gonna have to filter out the randomness via blogging again to help me :) unfortunately i was spoiled with ACTUAL readers & feedback…what happened to everybody?!

break up break down break

break down

since returning from cabo my schedule’s been SUPER crazy. and not the usual super crazy of being incredibly busy, this time it’s even MORE. but i guess it’ll now become the “norm”. just to satisfy this i’ll do a quick schedule break down

  • monday: school 2pm-7pm
  • tuesday: work 7:30am-12pm
                  school 2pm-9pm
  • wednesday: work 7:30am-12pm
                        school 2pm-7pm
  • thursday: school 2pm-7pm
  • friday: work.
  • saturday: school 8am-12pm
  • sunday: “free day”

the times when i’m not in school or at work i’m either working on school work/studying or running errands. then i try to take some time to hang out with the boyfriend and some friends and also do my part at home. my room still looks like an explosion :( but hopefully i’ll get used to it and not seem as hectic
so what i really need to do is create a

break up

of all these things. looks like my planner is gonna get worked again. :) i need to really create a routine and stick to it as well as do what i should do when i should do it! make time for separate activities and get it done! 
but what i seriously need is a 


!! sometimes i wish i could just have a day of doing absolutely nothing! or a day to do what i WANT to do instead of what i NEED to do! or maybe i should just quit whining and get to it haha 
life is full of challenges and this is just one of them, so time for me to suck it up and just deal :)

the one that got away

i know it’s lengthy, but it’s a good read, so hopefully you take some time to read it & enjoy it as well :)

The One That Got Away
Source: The Manila Times
By: Mark J. Macapagal

In your life, you’ll make note of a lot of people. Ones with whom you shared something special, ones who will always mean something. There’s the one you first kissed, the one you first loved, the one you lost your virginity to, the one you put on a pedestal, the one you’re with …and the one that got away.

Who is the one that got away?

I guess it’s that person with who everything was great, everything was perfect, but the timing was just wrong. There was no fault in the person, there was no flaw in the chemistry, but the cards just didn’t fall the right way, I suppose. I believe in the fact that ending up with someone, finding a long time partner that is, does not lie merely in the other person. I can actually argue that an equal part, or maybe even the greater part, has to do with the matter of timing.

It has to do with you being ready to settle down and commit to someone in a way that goes beyond the little niceties of giddy romance. How often have you gone through it without even realizing it? When you’re not ready to commit in that mature manner, it doesn’t matter who you’re with, it just doesn’t work. Small problems become big; inconsequential become deal breakers simply because you’re not ready and it shows. It’s not that you and the person you’re with are no good; it’s just that it’s not yet right, and little things become the flashpoint of that fact.

Then one day you’re ready. You really are. And when this happens you’ll be ready to settle down with someone. He or she may not be perfect, they might not be the brightest star of romance to ever have burned in your life, but it’ll work because you’re ready. It’ll work because it’s the right time and you’ll make it work. And it’ll make sense, it really will. The day comes when you’re finally making sense of things, and you find yourself to be a different person. Things are different, your approach is different, you finally understand who you are and what you want and you’ve become ready because the time has truly arrived. And mind you, there’s no telling when this day will come.

Hopefully you’re single… but you could be in a long-term relationship, you could be married with three kids, it doesn’t matter. All you know is that you’ve changed, and for some reason, the one that got away, is the first person you think about. You’ll think about them because you’ll wonder, “What if they were here today?” You’ll wonder, “What if we were together now, with me as I am and not as I was?”

That’s what the one that got away is. The biggest “What if?” you’ll have in your life.

If you’re married, you’ll just have to accept the fact that the one that got away, got away. Believe me, no matter how fairy tale you think your marriage is, this can happen to the best of us. But hopefully you’re mature enough to realize that if you’re already with the one you’re with, that this is just another test of your commitment, one which will just strengthen your marriage when you get past it. Sure, you’ll think about him/her every so often, but it’s alright. It’s never nice to live with a “might have been,” but it happens.

Maybe the one that got away is the one who’s already married. In which case it’s the same thing. You just have to accept and know that your memories of that person will probably bring a nice little smile to your lips in the future when you’re old and gray and reminiscing.

But if neither of that is the case, then it’s different. What do you do if it’s not yet too late? Simple… find him, find her. Because the very existence of a “one that got away” means that you’ll always wonder, what if you got that one? Ask him out to coffee; ask her out to a movie, it doesn’t matter if you’ve dropped in from out of nowhere. You’d be surprised, you just might be “the one that got away” as well for the person who is your “the one that got away.” You might drop in from out of nowhere and it won’t make a difference.
If the timing is finally right, it’ll all just fall into place somehow. And it would be a great feeling, if in the end, you’d be able to say to someone, “Hey you, you’re the one that almost got away.”

ladies & gentlemen, we have lift off

Filed under: main — Tags: , , — aireen @ 2:10 am

man..the story of getting my passport is insanely long. & every time i think about it i get so angry! so excuse me if this turns into a rant as well. my mom & i went to apply for the renewal of my passport at the beginning of july. i even took a day off because i thought we would go directly to LA in order to get things done faster. but i have no idea where she got this idea from…she decided to go to a local shop to see if we can get it done. now this guy, Nestor, has handled our passport before. not only my moms & mine, but also a bulk of my family go to him. we usually go to him to arrange trips for the philippines (i haven’t gone back in AGES so yeahhh) he has never failed us before so i could see why my mom chose him as an alternative to driving all the way to LA (especially with gas prices). anyway, we come to his shop & ask if it’s possible to recieve the passport before aug 18 because that is the day of our intended flight. he said yes & assures us he can do it & that he will go to LA & meet with the consulate in order to get the process moving. my mom tells me to call him that weekend to check up on him, just to be on the safe side. then later that day we go online to set up our flight & where we’ll be staying & everything. so we book the flight & the tickets are non-refundable 

SOOOO basically. the guy turns out to be a hack. he doesn’t go to LA like he said he would so he tells us he’ll go the next week. then he says the consulate cancels their appointment. then he calls me and asks if i can go to LA with him to personally meet with the consulate but it was the first day of my SUMMER CLASSES that i needed to go to. so i say i can go that weekend. some more shit & miscommunication. he says to come to the shop at 9am on sat. i get there at 9 HIS ASS DOESN’T GET THERE UNTIL FUCKING 10AM! & when i call him at 915 he says yeah yeah meet at 10, & i’m like nooo you said meet at 9! so he said okay i’ll be there. so my ass is waiting for him & i’m getting more & more mad because this guy hasn’t done what he said he was gonna do & i’m pretty scared that i just shelled out like $700 for a non refundable ticket that i may not get to use! so he finally goes there & leads me to this one place across the street where supposedly the consulate was. there’s a bunch of other filipinos there waiting to get stuff with their passports done & i’m thinking this is kinda shady the whole time. nestor leaves me there & doesn’t explain anything to me. all he says is go up to them when they call my name. WTF?! mmk! blah blah blah fastforward he’s a fucking ass who did not respect me at all. i will never go back to him & tell as much people as i can not to do business with him. SO FOR THOSE IN THE SAN DIEGO AREA OR WHO HAVE FAMILY IN THE SAN DIEGO AREA, IF YOU ARE GOING TO SET UP ANY BUSINESS WITH PASSPORTS WITH NESTOR OF ELVIE’S BOUTIQUE I WOULD HIGHLY THINK TWICE! personally i would never go back to him. he did FINALLY get my passport expedited & paid for it himself (which is only right) but the stress he put me through for A MORE THAN A MONTH! was not worth it! (not to mention the quality of his passport picture SUCKS–which is why i won’t show you. hahaha)

my passport. old & new the other one is not pictured..i think he forgot to give it back to me!

on the BRIGHT side of things, my ass is going to CABO!! you do not believe how excited i am for this! i love san diego, but i need to get out for my sanity every once in a while :) we’ll be staying at the finisterra club & resort excitement all around!

 i think i’m gonna be going out tomorrow with the boyfriend to spend some time together before i leave, then i gotta pack before sunday because i’ll be going to an event with my cousin :D then my flight is monday morning.. i don’t know what to pack :( suggestions? haha i’ve started a list but idk why i won’t apply it into action haha

in other news, for the past few days i’ve woken up with a sore throat & i figured it’d be nothing serious, then today during my lunch break it kicked in & i felt like shit. I CANNOT be sick ON A FRIDAY & right before a fun weekend & right before a vacation! talk about bad timing! so my coworkers & i made an emergency stop to the nearest place i can buy airborne (it happened to be longs drugs) & damn, that shit is expensive! 8 little packets for 9 something?! geeez! i don’t even care as long as it works!!

mini tidbit*

Filed under: main — Tags: , — aireen @ 12:10 am

at the building i work, there are door men (door people) that come & open the door for you when you enter the building. there are two particular guys that i really like. they’re always so nice & polite, they have huge smiles on their faces & always greet me. i remember when i came for my interview they said hello to me & wished me luck & said i hope we see you more often. then when i hurt my foot & they saw me limping in they asked me what happened if i was okay. they always put a smile on my face & no matter how busy/stressed/in a hurry i am i always take some time to stop & say hello & thank you. 

today, on my way in from moving my car (i have to move it every 3 hours because i park at the mall haha) one of the guys, james, said the usual hello to me. then the following conversation took place:

james: “where are you heading off to?”
me: “back to work haha” 
james: “haha yes, i meant what floor?” 
me: “oh, 12th floor for country of san diego, chid support”
james: “ah, yes, i see. hold on one moment”

then he proceeds to go behind their counter/desk thing and comes back out

james: “every year or so, we pick a person to do this for, this year we decided it should be you, it’s kind of become a tradition”
me: *curious* 
james: *hands me a bouquet of flowers*

at that point i’m grinning ear to ear & can’t say anything but thank you. he really made my day & i made sure to tell him that too haha it was awesome :)  

& the flowers? BEAUTIFUL! 



i’m not a really a red roses type of girl so this was even more special so i thought i’d share it with you guys too
