It's the last few days of May. Soon enough, summer is officially over. Save for the classic question, where did time go? It has been the same cycle every year, may it be in work or life in general. What differentiates everything are the memories that came with it. I don't have out of town trips. I really miss traveling. I hope to see a new place at least before 2018 ends. Except for the unexpected hotel staycations, there's nothing significantly memorable. Probably, save for the few times I had unplanned dinners with friends. The rest was all about my day job, blessings of freelance works, two straight months of wearing sneakers (best decision ever) and catching sunsets because I don't have evening classes. 

The next months mean back to normal working mode. This reminds me, I will miss the less traffic and spacious trains, because students are on vacation. Although this year, the institution where I work for synchronized with the international school calendar. I'm not sure how will this work, considering that typhoons in Manila arrive on the months of July to October. Actually, a number of schools in Manila have adjusted their opening of classes. Unfortunately, not everyone is synced because some start in July, August and a few on September. I sound so pessimistic and someone against changes. Hahahaha I may not appear supportive but deep inside, I'm anything that leads to improvement. After all, it's one of my responsibilities at work. I will not get on the details of my work. One thing sure, I do things that bore other people. ;)

So much about my sentiments, here are the beautiful things that happened last week

Weekly table mess

I've been following Mari Andrew in Instagram for quite some time. I'm always a fan of drawings and humor showcasing the complex life of adulthood. It's a refreshing and entertaining read.

P.S. It's cheaper to purchase this book from National Bookstore ;)

Been wanting to purchase this book for the longest time. I don't know why it's always out of stock from my nearby bookstores. Levitt and Dubner offer a lighter and realistic way to think like an economist. ;) 

I always wanted to collect rosaries from different countries. This set was given by two colleagues, kind enough to share something from their Holy Land trip.

I may not be a huge fan of chocolates but the message sent by the postcard is so true. Hahaha Thank you Marieken. :)

These set of postcards are from Terra. Thank you dear Terra.

Snapshots from the month of May 

It's another work week ahead. Looking forward to accomplish a pending work and visit the newly opened National Museum of National History.
