Far Away from Home...

I asked for it and I got it… this has been my first time to be away from my family and my hometown for a long time… and I was so excited and at the same time nervous… thinking ‘hey, I’ll be on my own now…’ I am now responsible for every action that I’ll take hence, I’m really really grateful for this opportunity.
I’ve been waiting for this for so long coz I want to be independent, to grow as an individual and try to learn more about myself and life… but I won’t be able to do it if I won’t go away… away from them (my family)… far from them who sustains all my needs… I just hoped that this experience would help me to be matured enough to make my own decisions and be a responsible individual….

FIRST WEEK away from Home..

I was somewhat surprised as I arrived at this City... seeing a bunch of noisy tricycles on the main road (like they were on a race track or something like that…) later on I figured out that this is their way of transportation here… No traffic lights and no route to be followed…

I've been to this City for a few times but never stayed for more than one day... I love to travel and I've been into different places already eversince I was a kid... Sometimes we just passed at this City and never thought of staying or living here but now here I am trying to fit in... trying to make each day a memorable one...


I thought that the brown-out that happened in our office one night was just an accident, but when it happened almost everyday (men! What a city!) I dunno but it’s really irritating when you were so busy working and all of a sudden ----------- brown-out! ggrrr… do you agree with me? Anyways, the city’s clean though and my officemates were nice… but my problem is…. *secret* hahahaha….


SECOND WEEK…

Everything’s going smoothly for this week though the brown-out’s killing me, plus our staff house sooooo quite... no television, no radio *sigh* (can you live with that?) It's a good thing that I brought my mp3 with me this week or else I'll be going crazy over by the silence of the night...


THIRD WEEK…

Men! I got LOST!!! All the tricycles that I had stopped don’t know where DC TECH is… and there’s this one tricycle driver who just get me going on circles around the city… I thought he know where it is… grrr…. So I went off to his cab and try to walk for a few minutes, trying my luck that maybe… somehow… I could find it but then I didn’t… felt hopeless so I go on to my next destination until I reached our office… I was really pissed off that day that I wished I was just in Davao… but too bad I had to face the reality that I am actually here… On my way back, I kept on thinking about what I really wanted before I was here and now that I had it, it’s seemed like I want to back out… but then I thought ‘what the heck .. I’m already here then so be it!’ Fight.. fight.. fight.. hahaha...

I think it is very important to break and also at the same time take a vacation not just sitting at home.

It helps you in so many ways, it makes your mind more ready for the next work load and also it gives you a sense of well being.If you dont then you burn out and that is not great at all, you will have to stay away from work then anyway!

You also get to spend time with your family, which in the end matters the most.
