July Wrap Up

As I am typing this blog entry (on Notepad, silly! haha), I just read an e-mail from someone regarding something I overlooked at work. I'm not going to make any excuses for my shortcomings. I know I share the blame, but imagine my horror when I saw that copies of the e-mail were also sent to my supervisor (well, that's okay), assistant operating managers (yes, plural, there's 3 of them) and our operating manager (oh shit, oh shit, I am panicking). I felt like my mind is going to explode so I had to write it down. It's the first time that it happened. So, yeah, oh shit.

The silver lining is, I finally had something to write about after being so lazy for more than a week. I keep saying that I don't have the time but whenever I do, I never accomplish anything. My mind was stuck in a rut for so long, I don't even know why. The things to share keeps on piling up and I just keep putting things off.

So much for asking for the brand new month to be good to me, eh?

In all fairness, July was a pretty bad ass month because:

1. Game of Thrones. Went on a GoT marathon 2 weekends ago, and I'm in Season 3, finally. I just had to find out what all the rave is all about. Story was a little slow at first but so far: 

  • I liked the Khal
  • I hate the Lannisters (who doesn't?) but Sansa even more
  • I love the direwolves and their names (especially Grey Wind AND Shaggydog! Can't get over a dog named Shaggydog during that time.)
  • So many bewbies!
  • I laugh everytime Daenerys Targaryen starts everything she says with "I am the Khaleesi of Dothraki..." and how she uses the fact that she's the Mother of Dragons to get her point across. HAHAHA
  • I didn't get it why Catelyn Stark released Jaime Lannister (it's a freaking war!)
  • I got so excited about the Red Wedding so I read about it. 
  • All this time, I thought the Khaleesi was played by Piper Perabo.

2. Much needed (and much awaited) break. We headed to Laguna to unwind before the...

3. Start of the peak season at work. The edits get so crazy sometimes, I just want to cry. Then you get the most brutal proofers and I just want to wail even more. But I love my work. I've never agreed to any kind of OTs before this job. (Well, the first job and this job.) This company is great. They even gave out cupcakes  (WOOHOO) yesterday as a "Job well done!" kind of token but I heard my heart break when I saw it was Blushing Cupcakes. I'm really grateful and all, but that's my least liked cupcake (hashtag choosy) but I figured it's the closest cupcake shop from the office. Still, thank you!

4. Before Midnight. Been waiting for this movie! Finally! Personally, Before Sunset is my favorite out of the 3 but something about this film was so raw and real. I cried and cringed and laughed, the feelings just won't stop. Hahaha. In between those long conversations they had in the car and while walking on the picturesque streets of Greece, I got so caught up in their little bubble, for a minute I thought Jesse and Celine were real. /crazyfangirlmoment

Not bad at all. July was like the coming down from a slope; everything finally feels a bit at ease, a bit more relaxed. Time to queue some posts!
