In Times Like This

Last Tuesday I went to UP Manila to submit my requirements for a Master in Public Health degree. I had them all, even the additional PRC license photocopy...until I was asked for an authenticated birth certificate. Duh? I said it was not listed in the list of requirements. I was answered with "Pasensya na po, di po kasi updated itong form." So I had to go the Makati City Hall's NSO, which is the nearest and got it at past 3 pm. I submitted it just this afternoon.
Then I went to see a dermatologist. Yeah, it really cost me but I know she's good, aside from the fact that she is popular, having a clinic in Glorietta and Binondo.
In the evening, my acne must have returned...I was told that the parish cancelled our reservation for the following day for the use of one of its halls for the Household Leaders Training which was done a month ago. Our speaker backed out. My training ministry partner wants me to do everything. Naturally, I refused. Because I had to go to a wake that night. And because he is the brother. In SFC, we practice exercise of the headship for the man. Well...everything turned out well. We had talk 4 of the HLT yesterday. Ü
Pray.
Be pissed off but still pray.
And that would include your boyfriend leaving after the communion for you to do the novena alone because of other commitments. Grrr...

So Many Things, So Little Time

The title may sound too familiar, but that is what I am experiencing right now. I just finished editing On Fire for the third time, which is for printing tomorrow for the SFC Chapter Assembly. I hope that our lay-out artist will be able to do ALL of that. Then I had tons of clients during the day at the office that I was able to finish my itinerary for next week only after office hours. ASnd I was still reviewing a report from the region because there were no requirements when they submitted that in the morning...I even forgot to have my IT signed for changes this week. Duh!

I've been up late since last week's Monday...Carrie's despedida. Wednesday I joined Joe in his upper household meeting, as I was convinced by Raffy, his unit head. Thursday after St. Jude, I did almost all the editing for On Fire, a draft. Friday, CLP. Saturday was MMLA and it was finished at past 10 pm Come to think of it, I ate dinner (as in heavy supper) at MOA at 6pm then they invited us for a meal after MMLA. I got home at past 1am and yes, I was sleepy in the cab with Joe. Monday yesterday was the service team meeting for the on-going CLP and we also had Doland's despedida that Raffy, Doland, Joe and I were eating until midnight...

Yeah, I am very busy that I have not done my essay yet for my masteral at UP Manila. I have to get it done by Saturday. The deadline is on the 31st and my recommendations from my former professors were already filled up since March 1.

So I ask for strength...for good health. Tomorrow will be the chapter assembly and I will be home by 11pm.

Paggalang sa Lupang Hinirang

Tuwing Lunes ay meron kaming flag ceremony. Sa aking palagay, dapat lahat ng nasa paligid ay nagbibigay-galang sa Lupang Hinirang, kahit na regular na empleyado ka, direktor, hardinero, dyanitor, o guwardiya.

Kanya-kanya man tayong opinyon, sa aking pananaw, nararapat lamang na magpugay sa ating pambansang awit. Subalit may mga hindi pa rin sumasang-ayon.

Kaya naging isyu ang pagpansin ko sa isang dyanitor na panay ang walis habang inaawit ang Lupang Hinirang. Sinabi ko ito sa isang dyanitress na nakarating sa isa pang dyanitress at sa inhinyero namin. Kaysa naman daw maging marumi ang paligid.

Duh!
