Happy birthday to me

I love my birthday. Not because of presents. (Because I don't get much.) Not because of food. (Because I get that all the time anyway.) Not because I'm a year closer to death. (Who wants that?)

I love my birthday because for one day, people who I've run into in the course of my life say Hi and Hello. For someone who values the connections and friendships I've made through the years, this is the most valuable present of all.

Happy birthday to me!

Car won't start

This morning, my car wouldn't start. A good Samaritan eventually came by and jumpstarted it; that's how I knew it was my battery. Afterwards, I bought a new one... to the tune of Php4,600. Now I'm praying for provision. My birthday's coming up on Saturday. Lord, who will You be using to bless me? I wanna pray blessings for him or her as early as now, lol.

Gotta be more "confrontational"?

I finally had a sit-down with the boss last week, who said he was generally happy with my work. He suggested I be a little more "confrontational" with my work style, and that I can afford to be "makulit." All right, I told him, I'll do my best. It's not going to be easy, because it's really not in my nature to be a micro-manager when it comes to certain things in my job. It's almost a little ironic that I have to micro-manage when I'm being told that I have to be more macro, but, hey, I'm flexible. Let's see what happens.

Bad dream

Had a truly awful dream last night. Didn't wake up like in the movies, no sudden sitting up in bed, drenched in sweat and stuff like that, but I did wake up with an overwhelming sense of disturbance and a general feeling of depression. Lord, what was that?

Daddy Date

I've been trying to convince my son to watch Disney's Tangled with me. He's totally not into it, so instead we went and played at TimeZone TriNoma to the tune of Php200. Not bad for an hour's joy. Lunch at Slammer Burger made the daddy date even more enjoyable. Gotta love these times because the time'll soon come when he may not want to have anything to do with me.
