Let's talk about my job, shall we...?

I'm working at the airport since February of this year. And I have a love-hate relationship with it. I was a frustrated pre-med student. I have a dead cat named, Paula and I ditched that course and took Tourism instead. It took me three years to finish that degree and I must say, no-brainer. LOL. I kid you not, it's easier to memorize the capitals of other countries than to memorize the anatomy of my neighbor's pet turtle. (yes, they have one.) 

Well, anyway. my job is simple, you go on time. Make sure the passengers get into their flight on time, that's basically it. i work in the ticket office so less hassle. except when we have delayed flights. We're not allowed to go home until the last plane goes airborne. :( Since it's all about office work, we take calls, make sure the every paper is in the right folder/file/drawer/box/. We make sure our supervisors are happy. so yeah. It's fun and at the same time exhausting. We get to meet different kinds of passengers as well, we have the MPOs (frequent flyers), the smart ones, the first timers, yung mga sabaw, the maasims, basically every one. 

here's one conversation with a passenger. 

Lady: (comes forward with her ticket on hand) 
Me: sige ma'am... ano pong gagawin natin?
Lady: Ma'am magpapa-stewardess po ako. 
Me: (stuck up) huh? magpapa-stewardess po? 
Lady: opo. 
Me: (stuck up parin) baka po gusto niyong magpa-STANDBY LIST. 
Lady: hindi po. STEW-WAR-DESS po. 
Me: (really confused) 

it went on and on. only to realized that she need a ground steward to assist her for her flight. She's a young passenger travelling alone. :/

so that's a day in the office I guess.

I know I shouldn't hurry.

But I miss him. I can't wait to start another chapter. I can't wait to move from here to another place and have a new life. I'm excited to do new things, to meet new people, to have a new job, and I'm excited to be with him. 

This is me being impulsive. 

But believe me, I've never felt this sure my entire existence. I do have some doubts...sometimes. He knows that. I've been very often with my feelings. and it take some prying on his part. He knows I'm looking for the sense of security.  And there's  only one thing left to do. 

I guess I'll be staying here for the holidays. :( When I expected to have a white Christmas in NYC or somewhere. oh well, we always have next year.

Indeed a visionary and creative genius. 

Goodnight and Sweet dreams, Sir.

"I told you, I''m not that girl anymore."

It was a rough ride. I got kicked out of college, had a series of black outs because of alcohol. Had pseudo-relationship with several guys in a course of 3 years and another 2 after a year long relationship. Been to the wrong group of friends. got high with drugs and more alcohol. Sex was another thing. I cared less for school. all I want to do is have a good time. To forget my problems I swam in pool of beer and tequila. I was awesome for several months. It was a need after that.

Everything was going well after college until I met someone. 2 years alone, and someone tells me I'm really special, now that's something! I believed him and soon realized that it was all sugar-coated lies. I swallowed my pride and ignored them all... all because I "love" him. I was that stupid. I know. hahaha! to the extent of travelling thousands of miles.

And it was the end of it.

I think I'm not that stupid anymore.

I have to thank him for all of that. And hope he's not one of those guys. I have a good feeling he's not.
