Hibernating and some other things

Posted on: April 6, 2010

I’ve hibernated for quite a long time and I think it was kind’a deliberate ‘coz I’m not feeling too well these days.

I was down with a flu last week. Started last Tuesday and I only got better last Saturday. I felt so tired and wasted and I haven’t had a taste of direct sunlight until I came to work yesterday. I was home the whole time and didn’t dare go out. This despite my mom’s yearly traditional Pabasa which meant that we practically had an ‘Open House’ – busy house with a lot of people going in and out, and a lot of food too! What was funny was that since it’s the election time, we’ve had a lot of “donations” from candidates like trays of eggs, boxes of fruit juices, even cash money. Generous bunch of a**es until they win and claim those seats. But thank you, nonetheless.

I made use of my “idle” time at home. I got to learn how to cook a few recipes (from Kuya’s Italian cookbook) where most of the time, I was compelled to improvise because I’ve got no clue what some of the ingredients there even look like! Anyway, I got to make a yummy Tiramisu, replacing mascarpone (some sort of cheese) with a quickmelt, and a Trifle, which I overdosed with rhum so it was only my pop and unni’s hubby who got to enjoy it. But hey, it was really good! I also cooked beef stew with overcooked vegetables. =)

My room had a slight renovation as I had it installed with A/C. This summer is killing me and it was a perfect timing that my aunt was selling her A/C so I took it without so much eyelash batting. I’m just worried about the electricity bill that’s why I’m still cautious in using it. This Saturday, my cousin will install floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and a built-in desktop on my wall. My goal will be to fill those shelves with books! Neat, right? =)

The last couple of weeks before I got sick, I ran around Ayala triangle every night after work (finally!) and it made me feel really good. Just that i kind’a “lost” my running buddy ‘coz her bf’s in town so I’m lying low as well. But I’ll continue doing that I swear even if it meant me running on my own. Somehow, I felt light and since I stopped, I’m starting to feel bloated again. Ayala triangle’s busy during weekdays and kind’a ‘dead’ during Fridays (I think everyone’s off, hanging out somewhere to unwind). It’s nice to be around a bunch of health-conscious people; it makes me feel healthy for some reason.

So I wonder what’s there in the next few days. I still feel like a first-class zombie these days but I am putting every inch of effort to shun all the negative vibes that surround me. As they say, I’ve probably bottomed out and there’s no other way but to go up.
