One of the downs of having no classes, or work, or just anything to do with your life but stay home is having no idea what day it is. Take for example my latest entry, which I posted just two days ago-- On a Random TUESDAY. See? I would not have realized this if not for the "tweeple" (twitter people) who are all like "TGIF!" today. If I had been a student, or if I had been employed, I would have gone cray cray as well. But guess what? I'm not.
Today's just another day.. Eating Hershey's Cookies n' Cream while watching The Family Guy while typing this down....
Just another day... But hey! I'm good just the same. I am well rested. I have lots of time to..... I don't know. But it's nice not having to worry about anything. Oh the life of an unemployed! :))

It has only been a little more than two weeks since the Nursing Licensure Exam, and here I am, bored to death, and not a cent richer. In an attempt to make myself
physically and mentally financially productive
while I agonizingly wait for the results of the recent board exam, I have
started applying online for whatever job is available. (Most of the published
vacancies are for call center posts, if you’re interested.) I had gone to two
interviews in the past two weeks (one at a call center company, and the other
at a clothing company), and I must say, the experience has been pretty
awesomesauce! I got accepted in both. Unfortunately, I have to turn the offers
down for not-so-personal reasons— shifting schedules, travel time, and salary. I
have allotted today for another job-hunting but decided last night not to push
through. Why? Because I have just finished with Fifty Shades of Grey and the
story was a freakin’ “comma”…. or a “dot dot dot” or something. I HAD TO get
the second book. Haha. So I went to Trinoma this afternoon and got my hands on
the second book.
|Fifty Shades Darker; Along with it, I bought a heart-theme peace sign paper clip, which I intend to use as a bookmark.|
And so the random Tuesday begins…..
I went to Happy Lemon to get my dose of Green Tea with Rock Salt and Cheese and decided to stay since there was an unoccupied table (and seats, of course!), which, by the way, rarely happens. For Instagram purposes, I took a picture of my drink…
Happy everyday huh. I looked around and remembered this book I read about 4 years ago..
|No Regrets: 101 Fabulous Things to Do Before You're Too Old, Married, or Pregnant|
#52. People-watch in Paris… Wait whut? Trinoma will do for now J)
Hmm.. Happy.... Kids enjoying their carousel ride with either their moms or their dads; a group of foreigners satisfying their craving for some Happy Lemon drinks; a couple dancing to Mary Had a Little Lamb (I am not kidding!); some college girls sharing stories and laughs (although I probably got them a bit pissed because I had the 4-seat table all to myself.. Thank God this other customer came up to me and asked if she could share the table with me. I would’ve asked her if she agrees with this “Happy Everyday” tag line if she weren’t as busy fiddling with her smart phone as I was with mine while drafting this)… and mooore!
I think my taking pictures of the "scene" got some people "weirded out" though. But what the hell.. #77 says, "Keep a camera with you at all times."
Well surely it wasn't "more acceptable", but yeah whatever. I would rather use my digicam, anyway. (It's easier to transfer photos from the memory card to my laptop.)
Generally, I think it was a happy day :)
But then maybe it's because I was seated right across the carousel, and was surrounded with "Mary had a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb..." Hahaha

I would love to say so much about my outfit except there is not much to say about it. I wore this to my sister's birthday dinner only because this maxi skirt has been in my closet, unused, way too long. Wait, I must be exaggerating. I might have bought this just a few months back. Or not. I can't really remember. Maybe, just maybe, it has really been THAT long. Haha. Anywaaaay...
I don't wear a lot of maxi skirts, or maxi dresses for that matter. In fact, this was the first of only two maxis that I have ever bought. Why I WAS not into them, I don't know. But I'm happy I came across this one at Crossings Department Store one time while shopping with my mama. I tried it on and was surprised with how "perfectly" its spandex-ish fabric hugs my waist, and drapes through my (ehem!) long legs.

PS: Find the one you'll feel most comfortable in. You don't have to buy one if you're not happy IN it. Wear your clothes. Don't make your clothes wear you because YOU, miss, are not a walking rack :)
PPS: We celebrated my ATE's 22nd birthday at Market Cafe, Hyatt Hotel.
|Yes, she's older than me. HAHAHA|

|RJ, the father of my blog|
What to expect here.... Nothing. Haha. I am a person with no particular interest, no big time links to big time events, and no forte of some sort. So this blog will contain random things- mostly things that are just about to occur in my not-so-official UNEMPLOYED life.
