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?


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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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. ♥

  1. I recently stumbled upon an informative article on about the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program. As a nursing student, I found the article to be very helpful in understanding the requirements and benefits of pursuing a DNP degree. The author explained the differences between the DNP and other nursing programs, such as the PhD in nursing, and provided examples of career opportunities for DNP graduates. Overall, the article gave me a clearer picture of what to expect in a DNP program and how it can enhance my nursing career.
