The Week That Was

I'm currently enjoying the first round of a long weekend that started two days ago. But prior to that, I had to encounter some ups and downs, hits and misses. Considering the following events:

Monday, August 13
Just when I was expecting to begin my week right by coming to the office early, it did not go as planned. I reached the office 45 freaking minutes late. My first lesson for the week: Never ride the Crossing-Highway route going to the office ever again.

Tuesday, August 14
I was able to redeem myself. I was at the office by 6 am. Although I am still worrying a bit about salary deductions.

Wednesday, August 15
While it's payday, I had to have my first encounter with another side of law -- products liability. And I received a letter about being endorsed for a credit card -- fuss free. And knowing that almost freaked me out. Read the story here.

Thursday, August 16
I received an email about a seminar that I have long wanted to attend to. Sent a reply back to inquire about the details of the event and keeping my fingers crossed for a reply.

My mom turned 60. I was excited to come home with the birthday cake but my excitement was altered by disappointment and exhaustion because of the horrible traffic in Rizal. The end result? I was able to finish a bowl of pancit in one sitting.

Friday, August 17
The reply was fast. When I was just asking for details, I received a tentative slot reserved for me for the seminar.

I got myself Paulo Coelho Transformations Day Planner 2013 even if the new year is still four months to go. While I was ready to pay the price of 495 for the item, I was given a discount and got it at a lesser price.

And that phone? just before the night ended, I received an unexpected phone call. It caught me by surprise because someone took the time to call me and spend a few minutes of his time to chat with me about what happened the whole day even asked me if I needed anything -- despite that he had the option to send me an SMS. It has been such a long time since I received a call as that. It was time well spent and I appreciated the person's effort.

I still got one day of this long weekend and afterwards, I'll be Cinderella no more because I'll have to return to the real world. But before that, I am humming this song:

"You can thank your stars all you want but I'll always be the lucky one." :-)
