It’s early in the morning. I just arrived from the office. I wanted to open the computer so I could work right away when I was ready. I turned my laptop on but it hung. I closed it down then opened it up again but when it opened, my mouse wouldn’t work. The pointer wouldn’t budge. I was getting nervous because I have no budget to buy a new laptop or I don’t have the time to wait for it to be fixed. Then I realized that my mouse was not yet connected to my laptop. That’s why it didn’t work. Hehe 🙂
Kung hei fat choi to all the Chinese of the world. May you have a prosperous year.
This week has been so BUSY for me. My mind is swamped with all the things I should be doing. I want to do all things as soon as possible–write letters, prepare a lecture, prepare handouts and all the other things that I should do. They say that there is a time for everything. But right now, I just want to do all the things I can. To give my best. But how can I give my best if my time is divided in all of these? I hope I can still do it. With the help of God, I know I can.
People at work used “po” on me a lot. Here in the Philippines, using “po” is a sign of respect especially if you are older than the one addressing you with a “po” at the end of the sentence. One of the supervisors asked me, “Don’t you realize she (the one I was conversing with that time) kept saying “po” to you? That means you are getting older…”
“I didn’t realize that. I feel young though, ” I replied.
“That’s what I’m feeling, too but look at me…” she replied back.
I am happy right now despite all the challenges in my life but I also feel like my life is about to begin that my dreams will come true somehow. Dreams of having my own happy family who lives a comfortable life…a family that God is the center. That God will give me the means to fulfill my mission in life. Without God in my life, all I see is a blur and the weariness of everyday life but with God in the equation, my life is finally filled with excitement and happiness. I hope that I will be able to live a life that is pleasing to Him–to have a pure heart that is saved. It doesn’t matter that I’m nearing the end of my 20s…well I still have 11 months left of being in my 20s…but as long as I have God in my life, I will feel young and happy and excited no matter what is my age.
