Back to blog....

Hello there blog! been a long long time since I've last logged into you. A lot of things has happened in the past year. I'd like to say that I've been just super duper busy as an excuse, but truth is I was just being a grown up. Doing what grown ups do. Going into the business of trading your time for money. It's called work. The kind of business I've been evading for a while, or as other saw it... a really long time. But you'd be proud, I haven't resigned... yet. YEY!

I guess it just takes a while to figure out the kind of work that doesn't really feel like work. Except when I wake up at 6 in the morning, which is daily. Other than that it's pretty easy breezy. The pay is not much, just a regular minimum wage earner in this country, but the perk lies elsewhere. The kids. Good thing I'm dealing with cute kids! Or maybe I just like kids so darn much that in my eyes they are cute. Ha!

So there you go, I like my job. I'm still at the stage where I'm enjoying it and I hope to God will continue to do so for a long long long time. But I gotta admit, I miss traveling so much. The days of panic booking for cheap fares and researching for the itinerary. The packing,checking in, long painful bus rides, budgeting and getting wowed at that splendor of your destination. The whole process of traveling. The spontaneity of it all. I miss it so so so bad!

Nostalgia. That's the honest reason why I'm avoiding you blog. The things you make me feel when I read through you. The pictures that reminds me of the more possible places I could have gone to. That's why you my dear blog are nostalgic. But I guess I'll have no choice but to embrace the feelings that comes along with you, for I learned that nostalgia comes hand in hand with being a grown up. Like an old couple holding hands in their rocking chair staring off into the distant past of good times.

Good news is, I'm still too young for that rocking chair! So I'll just rock this blog instead. Traveling post maybe dwindling, but I still got a few stories up in my sleeves that I was just too lazy busy to tell. Which reminds me that I have yet to finish that 10 days trip. Sagada will be coming up. I don't know when but real soon. I hope.

Hello to you again blog!
