behind the scenes

Thankful Tuesdays // 2

Some things happened yesterday that put me in a very foul mood. I was so pissed off that at one point last night, I found myself walking along C5 and cursing loudly. Who does that?!

Today’s a little better, though my heart is still heavy. I’ve typed up three drafts airing a few annoyances and frustrations but decided to just shelf them for the time being and focus on more positive things.

This week, I am thankful for:

1. Joey, who got me roses on Valentine’s Day.

the happy list

The gesture of giving flowers gets so much flak but I adore them and I’m so grateful that Joey is very generous when it comes to surprising me with roses (my favorite)!

2. My bed.
Joey got me a duvet and a bedding set for Christmas. Um, best boyfriend ever! I cannot thank him enough for them. I go to sleep snuggled in like a burrito and emerge from my cocoon feeling like a butterfly every morning.

the happy list

It’s even Kulasa-approved!

3. Freelance work.

This week, I started handling a small business’ Instagram account; the pay isn’t much but it’s for a brand I am very fond of (and a cause I support) so I don’t mind. I also do some work for Joey’s mom! Income-wise, this gives me a little breathing room and I am very very thankful for that. Gotta be debt-free by December 2015!

What are you thankful for this week? :)

    Thankful for friends for not bailing on me over the weekend. Haha. Also, thankful that a Jollibee finally opened in front of our office. Little things but, yes, I’m super thankful. :)
