Doesn’t give a damn)

June 17-19: Was on sick leave due to pneumonia; thank God it’s not dengue; spent

The week at my cousin’s place.

June 20: Went back to work; Found out from an officer that she wanted me to have

a formal turnover before taking my sick leave (the nerve!) and she is

actually questioning why I informed her only through text!

Slowly

June 22: Typhoon Frank; but enjoyed the day nonetheless because my honey is

With me; cancelled prenup pictorial

June 23: Talked to an officer of a company I am handling and she requested me to

Join their activity. I told her I can’t because I was sick, and she told me

That I should join them since it was already a week since I had been sick

And that I should take this time to bond with the employees (hmmm…)

Composed my final letter, but haven’t emailed it yet

June 24: Didn’t join the activity; I’d rather risk my work than my health and my

life. Still thinking when I should send the letter.

June 25: writing in this blog just to express my anxieties…

MORAL OF THE STORY:

  • A lot can happen in a span of a few days.
  • You are insignificant to them. What’s important is that you do what you’re supposed to do no matter what it costs you.
  • They don’t believe it when you say you’re sick. You aren’t sick if you can still walk and talk (and text). They would probably believe you if you tell them you’re dying.
  • If you’re no longer happy, quit! It’s not worth all the psychological and emotional stress they bring you.
  • You deserve to be treated better; don’t let anyone put you down.
  • There are people who love you and who will stay with you through thick and thin. And these are called family and friends. You would know who truly cares in times like these. And thank God I have found them…

And to all others who don’t give a damn…the time is near…I am ready to go…It will be your loss…

My Mommy Entry # 7

My In My Womb 3d/4d Ultrasound Experience

Last Saturday, we had our 6th checkup with our OB-Gynecologist. So far, everything's ok. I passed my Glucose Challenge test, but I still need to cut on my sugar intake. We were also able to hear our little one's heartbeat. Next week I will be having my Tetanus Toxoid shot -- scary!!

After the checkup, we proceeded to Makati for our scheduled 3d4d ultrasound at In My Womb. I have heard lots of great reviews about this ultrasound center so we have decided to have our ultrasound there. Their center is located at 2f, The Link Bldg, Ayala Makati. The building is beside Landmark. Before proceeding, we had our lunch first at Ineng's Special BBQ -- great food, terrible customer service!

After eating, we then proceded to the 2nd level. We were greeted by a courteous nurse and I told her that I was scheduled for an ultrasound with Dra. Ramos. I would actually like to have the procedure done by the owner, Dra. Shiela Illescas, since i ha…

Transformation

What do you think of when you hear the word "Transformation"?

For me it means changing and evolving for the better.  But how does it really feel like when one undergoes the transformation process?  

One thing's for sure -- it is not an easy process.  When you undergo a transformation, it means going back to basics.  Unlearning what you know and accepting new ways.  Sometimes transformation can hit you pretty bad that you think it is not necessary.  But in the long run, it is always important to understand the need for such change.  You may not believe and understand it now, but at least try to give it a chance.

Sometimes hearing the word scares me.  Not because I am afraid of what it brings, but because I am too comfortable where I am now and I think any movement will cause me to fall down.  But hey, I have been through tougher times.  And I will surpass this for sure.
