For Filipinos, September signifies one thing. It marks the beginning of the BER months, Christmas is fast approaching. Even if there are three more months before December and there are other equally significant events in between. In my case, September reminds me of my first month of working many years ago. It's been more than a decade since I entered the workforce. Maybe years ago, I still consider this as an accomplishment. These days, it has become a constant reminder of my age. It emphasizes how I turned to become one of the oldest members in our organization. :p 

Last week was filled with accomplishments. Saying this feels so fulfilling and liberating. I finished a number of reports. I did some admin work for the office. More importantly, the lengthy freelance work I've been doing for weeks was finally, accomplished. The last freelance work was one for the books. A few hours before my promised deadline, the supply of electricity was cut off. I was forced to work fast, because my laptop's battery was less than 50%. All the rush and panic were worth it because my client paid me on the next day. ;) Best feeling ever. Hahahaha Meanwhile, this reminds me of another client, who has yet to settle. I just need one more client to replace my dilapidating laptop. 

Other than work, here are photos from last week

Attempted to bake? Unfortunately, I just helped someone and took photos. Hahaha
