So I’m turning 27 this year… How’s my life these past couple of years? I’ve been working in the same company for 2 years and 7 months, been living in Baguio City (which is 6 hours away from where my family lives) for 3 years and 5 months, been sharing a room turned house with my friend / roommate / housemate Irick for 2 years and 2 months. I’m quite satisfied with my life. I earn enough money and I have fun in my job. Yes, there are really annoying people sometimes but the pluses outweigh the minuses. (Dude, I think I just quoted Bokura ga ita XD) I’m quite proud that I never asked for more responsibilities in the office but they trusted me enough to handle the payroll of the teachers, even if it’s just temporary. (while our manager is taking her bar exams ^^) In as much as it was fun to earn extra money for that, I can’t wait for it to be over since I think it’s peak season again and I want my Internet time back. Hahahaha.
I just wish there would be some change in my life soon. I wish that I’m not that lazy to move around. My life’s a one big routine. I want to exercise and learn a foreign language but I can’t seem to get started. I want to travel with my friends at least several times a year but that seemed quite difficult for the past two years. Heck, I can’t even get a damn passport because I’m too lazy. I have two months left for 2012 and I think my New Year’s resolutions for this year will be rolled over to 2013. Hahaha.
One thing I’m not bothered about though is the boyfriend thing. One convo I had with my new 18-year-old student Lisa was:
“Teacher, do you have a boyfriend?”
“No, I don’t have one.”
“I’m sorry to hear that.”
But you know what, I’m not sorry. Is it so weird that I’m not looking for it? Yes, I feel alone (or more like envious of couples?) sometimes and that makes me want to have a boyfriend but I think it’s not a good reason for wanting or needing a boyfriend. And this is why I love Robin from HIMYM, I’m so like that. Well, minus the hotness. LOL. Thank goodness, I don’t live in China – where they call 27-year-olds “leftover women”.
In 22 days, had I lived in China, I will be a “leftover woman” but at least some people say I look 21, some people I know who were born in the 90s think I’m the same age as them and that the bus driver still asks for my student I.D. whenever I go to Manila. I wish it’s November already. I can’t wait to celebrate my birthday with my friends!
