Yes, I know I’ve disappeared. This is probably the longest I’ve had since starting this blog on 2005 without writing.
Blame it on the sucky Internet in Manila. Speeds here are so slow you often wonder what the hell is wrong. I mean, what’s so difficult about installing better network speeds?
Blame it on my breakup. To say I wasn’t caught off-guard and devastated is completely untrue. I was distraught. I lost weight, almost puked a few times, and cried at random places, even at church. I think I was sadder at the end of a potential than the thought of losing Trader who by the way completely acted in a way that now disappoints me.
He was not the person I thought he was. He wasn’t the nice guy he wanted everyone to be. I am glad that it is over. Think I dodged a bullet on that one.
Blame it on not finding the time to write. Correct that, I just didn’t feel like writing. For some reason, I just couldn’t find the inspiration to write about anything. Even though there were so many interesting things that happened. Sorry about that, I’d be better.
Anyway, I am back.
But surprise surprise, as you can see on my blog header, I have once again moved countries.
Destination: Manila, Philippines.
Yes people, I am home.
Not kicking and screaming as some of you may have thought. “Whhaaaaa? Bonita back home in the Philippines where she is locked and chained 24/7?!”
Actually, I’ve only been here for a month and it’s been great so far. Surprisingly not as bad as I thought it would be.
Whereas most of my friends who came back from overseas totally hated coming back, I like the interestingness of it.
The fact that once again, I have to start from square one.
The fact that I am handling family and employee drama left and right.
The fact that I am learning new things — how to drive for example.
The fact that I am trying to find the foot in the ground, seeking things that make me happy. Like wallclimbing or eating or meeting new friends.
The fact that the world here is so small, it’s ridiculous. Everyone knows everyone or is related to them. Crazy, huh?
The fact that I have once again with God’s grace embarked on a new chapter in my life. At a place where I was born and bred and lived. And is now once again starting to rediscover.
Life is good. God is good.
And I’ll make sure I’d keep you updated on my adventures here.
Wish me luck! 🙂
