Beautiful Sunday # 323 - Halfway 2018

And just like that, half of the year is gone. I'm trying to recall all the significant events and accomplishments over the past months. Like what I always mention, it has been freelance works.

A few days ago, I chanced upon someone, who tested my patience and caused me to have some trust issues. It has been years since she intentionally failed to settle her debt and blocked me on her social media accounts. Honestly, I'm not sure if I have forgiven or forgotten. One thing I know, the experience caused me to change the way I treat other people. I know, I sound unfair and prejudicial. Unfortunately, my defense mechanism led me to this behavior. 

On to the positive side, I love it when people make all means to reconnect and rekindle our friendship. Within the week, I met former students for dinner and coffee. This rarely happens because most of the time, I belong to the unloved segment of instructors. :p Of the 10 years I've been taking part time teaching stints, I can count the number of former students, who later turned as friends. In other news, I discovered that the first batch of college kiddies I handled turned 30 years old!!!! I'm still in touch with some of them through Facebook and lately, I've been seeing photo uploads of 30th birthday celebrations!!!! It makes me feel so old, all the more when I discovered that the students I'll be handling this semester were born on the year 2000. (Nakakaloka!!!)  They don't know the Y2K bug. They were toddlers when our country impeached a president. And speaking of which, I hope these kiddies will no longer experience another EDSA revolution. My mother was pregnant with me during the first EDSA. I was in college when the second EDSA and worst foreign exchange depreciation happened. I thought that was the last time I will see 1 USD = Php 50. :(

Okay, I think I wrote a lot of negativities already. Let me share highlights of the past week in photos.

I created my own breakfast bowl. I'm thankful to the generous Instagram users who shared their recipes. 

To those who might be interested :), here are the ingredients I used

Thank you Terra for the beautiful card and as always, the wonderful message

And a nice quote from Marieken's card ;)

Wishing everyone a great week ahead! 


  1. "Don't grow up, it's a trap", that makes me smile.

  2. Kabatch ko pala ang first batch of college kiddies na naturuan mo! Hehe.
    Nadidis-orient nga ako minsan pag nakaka-meet ng mga college students na pinanganak ng 2000 at late 90s. Feeling ko dapat maliliit pa sila e, hahaha.

    1. Feeling ko ang tanda tanda tanda ko na hahahahahaa Grabe, pero d ko naisip na 30 ka na. As in, no joke. Feeling ko early 20s ka lang sa IG posts mo

  3. I forgive but I don't forget. Naalala ko tuloy yung may utang sakin na naka-forget na magbayad nung nagbebenta pa ako ng celfone load as extra income. Sya at mga balasubas (ooopps, sorry for the word choice) dahilan bat nagstop ako sa side line ko na yun eh. Haha. :)

    1. Don't feel sorry for the word choice hahahaha totoo naman kasi :( Grabe lang d ba:(
