After my previous post, I noticed that I have neglected my blog for almost a month. Thea's laptop crashed about two weeks ago, and before that, it wasn't working all that great either. In a day I probably thought of about a dozen things to post about, but when I did get some proper computer time, my mind would tend to wander off and that would be the end of it.
Anyway, just to give my readers an update (as if there's a lot of them out there)...
1. I'm still working at NES as a part time teacher.
2. I'm home alone right now, for a week or maybe two. Or a month if the dreaded houseguest doesn't arrive. Hehe, I'm evil.
3. I wore a dress to NES' celebration of its 3rd year anniversary---which ends my quota of wearing a dress/skirt twice each year.
And again, I can't think of anything else. I guess my life sounds so boring huh, I dunno why. I'm rarely bored but when I put the things I do on paper, well, online in this case, it sounds so B-O-R-I-N-G. And why did I spell that out... Coz I dunno how else to fill up the space. Haha.
I'm enjoying my time alone right now, my solitude, so to speak. It's one of the things I really miss and I never quite know how to phrase it. I think people would find it rude, like I want them to go away or something, which is not really quite the same thing. I just need to be alone sometimes and be able to do things by myself for myself. The only thing that sucks about this arrangement is that the dog stays with me. I hate cleaning up after it. Oh well, one can't have everything...
Oh yeah, I mentioned that NES had a party recently. That was last Saturday, and we had a lotta fun. The party was well, short. I can't imagine a Filipino party that started on time and ended 3 hours later, but that's what it almost was. It was alright, though. They enjoyed playing party games they've never heard of (Newspaper Dance, Stop Dance, and Musical Chairs). They tried to dance the LA Walk (Thea's version), which I finally learned how to dance properly, and sang a few songs. Altogether, it was tame but not so bad. It ended at around half past nine so we (the foreign teachers) trooped over to a local girly bar named Chi-Chi's. Hehe. The girls and I have this twisted idea that we might enjoy watching the wild girls by going to the girly bars... but of course, they never show the good stuff when girls are present :( After a round of drinks we went to Vitamin C, that's a somewhat respectable girly bar. Had another round and met some of Jade and Art's friends and then we all went to Back Beach. We went to an almost deserted beach bar with a pretty Russian bartender. When we were the only ones on the bar, we girls (Thea, Laurice, Rizza and I) decided to dance on the bar top. After a while, Liana (the bartender) joined me, she was pretty good, too. And surprisingly, I ended up liking their draft beer. Art quit early but the rest of us went home at about 4 am. It was a good night out, I hope we do something like it again, soon.
So that's it for tonight. I gotta get up early (or at least, try to) coz I'm trying out this yoga class with Art at a nearby spa. Till next time!

As if I didn't have enough books (well, ebooks) to read, I've started reading several blogs apart from my usual list. Their stories are just well, engrossing. They remind me of unputdownable books that I can't bear to part with.
