1. I have a job.
Yesterday was my first rice-free day in weeks! I’ve been eating a lot of rice and bad carbs ever since I started working in an office again, but I’m trying not to beat myself up over it.
Two eggs and slices of kesong puti.
There are a few things I enjoy more than— forgive the cliche!!!— taking a walk down memory lane. Whether it be the music we used to listen to (90s music gave us the best pop music, if I may argue!), the books we used to read (The Baby-Sitters Club, Sweet Valley High, Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys), candies we used to save our school money for (Nerds, Nestle Crunch and Baby Ruth bars, Gobstoppers, Cry Baby, Runts), the cartoons we would obsess over (the Tagalized version of Peter Pan, A Dog of Flanders, Sailor Moon, Captain Planet, Denver the Last Dinosaur, Street Sharks, Jem and the Holograms, Daria), the TV shows we were allowed to watch (Perfect Strangers, *Lois & Clark, Buddy and Sol, Friends, Saved by the Bell), and our childhood heroes (the X-Men, Superman, Shaider, Mask Rider Black, the Spice Girls).
After over a year of working from home, I’m back to working in an office (Ayala/Valero/Makati area). Today was my third official day, though I’ve been coming in since Thursday last week.
Food has been a bit tricky.
Living in Valley Golf means I have to deal with C5 traffic on a daily basis. It took me two hours to get to work this morning and another two hours to get home tonight! This current schedule doesn’t allow me to really cook something properly for breakfast so I’ve been depending on hard-boiled eggs. It’s convenient— just put the pot on the stove and shower while it cooks.

From the streets…
When I turned 18, I made a mix CD to give out to the guests at my party. Today, Kaye (the first friend I made in college) tweeted me and said she still had the CD.
I’d rather not wax nostalgic because a) I have work to do and b) emotions are stupid so here is the mix and. The tracklist is under the cut. Warning: it’s a little embarrassing but so is being 18. And 19. And 20. And 21.
