Currently Vol. 39

28 September 2015

Along with changes in our office structure came new developments in practices and standard operating procedures. My favorite addition is probably our weekly pow-wow held every Monday where our boss Jenny asks a question that each one of us have to answer. It could be anything — about work, personal goals, career aspirations, et cetera, and it's always fun because we get to learn about our workmates outside of work. It's always a good way to catch up with everyone and ease into another busy week ahead.

Earlier today, our activity included writing a letter to our future selves that we will all open and read come our Christmas party. I do the same every year in that I send an email on Christmas eve that my future self will receive on Christmas eve of the next year, but it was the first time I did it outside the routine I am used to. It was a rude awakening, realizing that the end of the year will come in three months! What could we possibly aspire for and hope to achieve at that timeline, given that our schedules are busy enough as it is?

And then, I am reminded to start small. I've been mulling over the fact that my Currently entries have become an avenue for me to complain about how exhausted I am, about how tiring my work gets, about how I need rest. It gets annoying, yes? So, yes, I will start with improving how I view my week and hopefully it will trickle over other aspects of my life. It's just the 39th entry, anyway. It's not too late to begin, is it?


CURRENTLY VOL. 39

READING
Planet Panic by Pam Pastor. I've taken to buying a lot of anthologies and collections of essays lately because with the very limited time I can devote to books, I've been needing my readings bite-sized.

WRITING
Nothing of note at the moment, but I have two plot bunnies I wish to explore soon.

LISTENING TO
The Eraserheads. There's just something about their music that takes me back to carefree high school days, and since my barkada and I had a mini reunion last night, this just seems appropriate. Their music feels like home.

THINKING
Of things I can possibly do in preparation for the launch of our StrangeLit bundles. I have so many ideas but I need more time to execute them.

FEELING
Thankful. When I complain, I fail to be thankful. I am changing that.

WANTING
More money? Because being thankful doesn't mean I stop recognizing the need for more money, yes? Heh.

NEEDING
To curate my makeup kit and just have stuff in there that I really need and use.

WISHING
For good feedback for my StrangeLit story, A Sky of Wishes. I wrote that in a rush and I wish it doesn't come across.

There. That wasn't so hard, was it? So, yeah. I hope that wherever you are, you are happy and loved. Take care of your hearts. ♥
