Sunny Days

September 22, 2014

I’ve had a full day today, a really good day spent with the greatest friends any person can have.

People have often said that to have one friend for life is already a blessing. Well, consider me super blessed because I don’t just have one really great friend, I have several.

I spent lunch until the late afternoon hours with my ACE team friends. They are the bestest (if there ever was a word) people in the world. Everytime I hang out with them, I always have the best time. And yes, everytime we come together, all we ever do is talk.

Still, there’s something that could be said about people you connect with in an unexplainable level. I won’t say we are of the same wavelength because, hello, we’re definitely not.

I could never belong to the same wavelength as Marie, whose knowledge and experience as a professional trainer is beyond words. I love how I learn so many things from all her stories. And even those things I already know about, I still appreciate it coming from her because it means that I, at least, know something that someone like her also knows. She is so fun to be around. Even her subtle jabs don’t feel like jabs at all.

And then there’s Tessa, whose fierce sweetness is simply adorable. This girl who’s very brilliant in mathematics and follows the logical side of things is possibly the best kind of support system anyone can have. I’m not sure how many personal things she’s witnessed from every one of us, but yeah, she’s always a witness, always present, always stable.

There’ also Coleen, that sporty chick who can probably outrun all of our partners. Well traveled and well-read, she can also sing the high notes effortlessly. When I was new to the ACE team, I remember people saying that she was strict, intimidating and difficult to please. Boy, am I glad I got to her good side. She’s this loyal little princess who knows a little of evey freaking thing there is.

And our resident nice guy, Jayjay, who we all hope will find the love of his life and live happily ever after. All nice guys always get that, after all. This nice guy was blind to all our monkey business when he was our boss. Thank God for that. But he has since made up for his naivete regarding our secrets and dark sides.

Let’s not forget Janice, the one person we all make fun of because, well, she likes to make fun of herself too. But we all love her that way. Easily the prettiest out of all of us. And yes, my man, Jeffrey, is completely besotted with her. Lol.

Lastly, there are the partners. Come to think of it, since we all met, I think I’m the only one who hasn’t changed partners at all. It’s amazing to realize we’ve already known each other for quite some time now, considering we’ve seen partners come and go, new partners replacing the old ones in our tight little circle.

These are the only people I’d trust to talk about me behind my back. I trust them because I know that even if they talk about me, they’re not doing it maliciously or with the intent of making me look bad to other people. It’s just that as friends, we all know our strengths and weaknesses, and we all accept each other in spite of all those.

The day I joined the ACE team was a really lucky day for me because it led me to this path of having them as friends. Even to this day, when we all have different work lives, we still manage to come together every now and then. I’m absolutely blessed to have these people in my life.

Burning Weekends

January 7, 2013

I know I’ve said I don’t believe in resolutions and don’t make any, so I am not calling this a resolution. This next thing I’m blogging about is more like something I’d want to try this year.

For 2013, I will try to do my best to make sure that my weekends remain “Weekends” and not extensions of “weekdays” and unfinished work that I leave off to finish during my free hours.

Last year, I sacrificed a lot of weekends by spending too much time working.

I mean, working for a couple of hours on a Saturday or a Sunday is fine. You know, as one of the leaders, I have to be available MOST of the time, to make sure my team is working as expected, to be ready for unexpected issues, and to clean up anything that needs to be cleaned up. This means that popping in, checking a few emails and making a couple of touch-bases and updates every once in a while over the weekend is perfectly normal. However, waking up in the morning and staying online and working all day or staying up until 4am on a Sunday night is definitely a big no-no. Not unless I actually own the company, which I’m pretty sure even the company CEO enjoys a great weekend. Being a workaholic on Saturday or Sunday will be crossed off my list of to-do things. Definitely crossed off. With a marker. In bold letters and bright red X mark.

Ironically, I am, as of this moment, still awake because I am at work. I am laughing at myself now, to write about keeping off of work but actually be working while writing. Anyway, I have to log off and say goodbye to the cyber world. It is time to work on this goal.

Hopefully, the Lord helps me work on this goal. Hello, great 2013 weekends. Let’s have some good times together.
