It’s 2:34 in the morning, 1st day of August. I am now a working man-cat somewhere in Marikina, and as usual, I spent my weekdays working.
May I just say that I realized it’s kind of exhausting. Every day, I have unique struggles from going all the way there and leaving work and some home stuff, too? I must kill this pattern now, yes.
I am locked on a 3-month contract and I still have 2 months to go. One day, I abruptly stopped working without my boss noticing me, then I thought maybe I needed a break. Seriously, I’m dead tired. I need more than some of that fresh air.
It’s impossible to file leave for days. It’s non-sense, I’m a probee/contractor, so no work equates to no pay, and who am I to suddenly leave? I ain’t regular. Besides, I am only paid minimum for now.
So I have to spend the weekend really good. Weekend to me is now like gold. And I’m glad that last 24-26th of July was my busiest yet my goldest weekend ever.
I spent the Friday night with some awesome collegemates, from J.Co to King Sisig and Padi’s Point in Araneta. Had a chat with them after months of not seeing each other + drawing plans. Another unexpected night that I came home past 2 A.M. At least I found the beer of my taste.
25th. Amusement Parks catapult adults from adulthood back to childhood, but we never experienced that. It rained at Star City, so outdoor rides, including the Star Flyer, Surf Dance, Star Frisbee and the Ferris Wheel were never operated for safety reasons. So we never got the best out of our 280(450) ride-all-you-can tix, and two of my friends arrived an hour before closing. They came from a college friend’s wedding, exhausted and undeniably tired. But what made the night epic: friends, still.
Went crazy inside Star City by playing elementary school games, walking without bending knee joints, laughed at poorly-designed statement shirts like ‘Eh di Wow’, and lastly, walked from Star City all the way to Pedro Gil (Taft Ave. Cor. Malvar to be exact) in search of a nice place to eat.
The top of the sundae is trespassing a condominium penthouse just to have a nice night view of Manila. I even shared my part by telling a true to life unsolved crime involving a girl and a hotel’s water tank. And we all went down. Lol
Speaking of sundae, after we all parted ways, the four of us friends went to Family Mart to serve ourselves Twirl-all-you-can. Sadly, I failed to balance my sundae, so I immediately grabbed my fallen ice cream then put it back to the cone which gave them bursts of laughter. Fuck you bestfriends. 4 am, I and my highschool best spent the sunrise at McDo with pancakes and hash browns, because both of our homes are always locked until 6 am.
26th. It’s the National Science and Technology Week. Must go to Mall of Asia SMX to support my friend who’s working for DOST. I came really late but atleast we have pictures together. Ate JCo Donuts again, then spent the night with 3 of my college bests with milk tea and dinner.
In the end, what’s rest and sleep if I’m dead lonely. I prefer being tired yet happy, with these people who are all friends for keeps.
