nothing exciting going on lately, except for the fact that my 2-year old is learning all these words and phrases. i forget how funny and adorable they all are when they start talking.
the #StrangeLit class had a book launch but i’ll save that story for another blog post aka a lot went down on that weekend trip to manila so it would take me more than a couple of brain cells to write a decent, coherent story about it.
not that you will care to know, but i’ll tell you anyway.
i’ve learned that when people ask you “how are you?” or “kumusta na?” or, okay, “muzta u?” they’re not expecting you to answer “i’m doing great. my cat just gave birth to three super kittens blah blah blah” or “my boyfriend broke up with me, i need a hug.” “how are you?” has become something people just randomly throw around these days. i must say though that it’s more polite than “nanambok lagi ka!”
so even if you don’t ask me “how are you?” i’ll give you an answer, because this is my blog. what’s up kaith, in bullet points:
- drive kids to school – work – drive kids home. much excitement, yes?
- i finished the outline of my story for the #WriteBreakUpSongsAbout. this fun activity has been inspired by One Direction’s Perfect, which everyone (the Filipino writers, that is) in my Twitter timeline was raving about as soon as it was released. the fairy book mother, Mina E., somehow understood what our hearts have been secretly (oh-kay, not so secretly because we were all squealing and giggling!) wishing for. stories inspired by One Direction songs! yes, at 33, i am excited about writing a story these (dreamy, my 16-year old self says) boys have been crooning about. it’ll be a short one, and i will definitely let you know once i am done.
- soccer games and practices. i tweeted that i don’t own my saturdays anymore because i am either in my eldest’s soccer game/practice or his and my daughter’s social obligations (birthday parties, etc). sunday na lang ang pahinga ko.
- online shopping. make that online window shopping. lately i’ve been looking through ZALORA for clothing from Mango and some sexy slip-ons and leather bags. if you haven’t noticed, i don’t really have the time to go to the mall because i am either too tired, or too lazy.
that pretty much sums about what the past weeks had been for me. i do have several appointments in the coming weeks, what with the holidays coming for us in a speeding train. i can’t wait to see and talk to other people! LOL.
enjoy the rest of the week, guys! <3
