Something new: Swimming Lesson 101

Last Saturday, we attended our first day in swimming class. I was really nervous at first, I was thinking that maybe we will the oldest students of the pack but I was surprised to see at most of our Classmates were older than us. They were all funny and friendly.

That swimming class is also our first class together and I’m happy that finally we are doing something new and productive. Will update you all =)

Someone else doesn’t have to be wrong for you to be right. There are many roads to what’s right. You cannot judge others by your own past. They are living a different life than you. What might be good for one person may not be good for another. What might be bad for one person might change another person’s life for the better. You have to allow people to make their own mistakes and their own decisions.

To me, there are three things we all should do every day. We should do this every day of our lives. Number one is laugh. You should laugh every day. Number two is think. You should spend some time in thought. And number three is, you should have your emotions moved to tears, could be happiness or joy. But think about it. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that’s a full day. That’s a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you’re going to have something special.

There she goes

I’ve been struggling a lot these past few days. It’s all because of our new TL who used to be our manager but got demoted, not just because our TL resigned but maybe because of her out of this world attitude.
I can’t even imagine how she got into this kind of position with that kind of character. When she was still our Manager, all the TL’s hated her and now that she’s our TL, we don’t have any choice but to communicate with her. I was the one who really got affected by this, I was the team’s POC and I don’t like talking to her, she just got an awful attitude that I can’t handle. I do believe in the saying that you will be treated by the way you act or the way you treat the other person. And she acts like a total bitch and I can’t help but to be a bitch to her. I know that she’s my TL, her position is higher than me but the way she treats us is not like a professional person.

I’m just so fed up with her. I tried not giving a crap about her but I there are still times that I need to talk to her because of work. I’m just so happy that have a lot of friends at work who’s at my back and I know that whatever happens they will be on my side.

Not bad for 25.

Last May 20, I turned 25, sad truth is that I’m OLD but the good news is that I feel young and I somehow look young.. right? LOL.

I had a very long birthday celebration. I have different group of friends that asked me to go out days before my birthday. What really made me happy were the suprises (not just those gifts) of my friends and loved ones. Those genuine greetings really made my heart melt. Those persons who truly remembered my birthday, even without the Facebook reminder, is just so precious for me. 

Anyway, it’s already the Month of June and I just need to post these photos from my instagram, to reminisce my happy day.

These two girls are really sweet and thoughtful, they surprised me with a big box, with pictures and messages as well as a cute cellphone stuff toy. It was a really huge effort for them to even bring this to our house on the day of my birthday. I love them so much. 

The day before my birthday, I had a buffet feast with my two closest college friends.

We’ve been planning to have a girls night out but the plan didn’t pushed through due to lack of time and communication. But, still I’m happy to have spent the day with them.

And finally, this guy almost wrecked my birth day, but somehow he managed to turn things around and make me smile. He always makes me smile. Thankful that I have someone like him. 

Sometimes it may not be possible to remind someone everyday about how special they are. But, birthdays make way for it. I just feel so blessed and thankful for times like these.
