Getting my period sucks.
For the most part of the month, I’m okay. Sure, things can get challenging but I power through my days because I’m an adult with responsibilities. But once I start bleeding down there, it’s game over; I turn into a big baby whining about how life is unfair. On top of the things already on my plate, I now have to deal with dysmenorrhea, feeling fat and bloated, accidental stains, and ALL THE EMOTIONS! (I was PMS-ing one time and Joey gave me a playful pinch that sent me laughing and then crying within a matter of seconds). Tampons are a godsend but they’re expensive and most pads are uncomfortable, clumpy things that give me rashes.
When I was in high school, I had a love and hate relationship with Home Economics class. While I liked the cooking and baking part of the curriculum, I absolutely despised home crafts. Though I found crochet and knitting enjoyable enough, I was totally hopeless when it came to sewing (especially with a machine!). Until today, I still have to ask my mom to fix buttons and mend holes for me. I almost flunked junior year Home Ec class due to my inability to sew.
I may not be a fan of Rihanna’s music (though I may have California King Bed in my old iPod…) but I love her look and her body!
We’ve been with PLDT for as long as this house had a phone line (give or take twenty years!). Save for a few snafus over billing issues (that was quickly resolved with a phone call) and that one time when we didn’t have internet for a month because of Ondoy (LOL), I would say we’re pretty satisfied customers. If we weren’t, we wouldn’t have bothered to get the PLDT Telpad plan this year!
Twenty-two days til The xx plays in Manila! Mediocre second album aside, these two songs will always be iPod staples:
