leaving on a jetplain

I'm heading to the airport in about 4hrs. I'm off to the US for a week to attend a conference. I'll be home Sunday night next week. That will be 9 days, 8 nights total. This will be the first time that I'll be away from Caitlyn for more than a day. This will be the first time that I'll wake up in the morning and won't see her. Surely, this will not be easy. I just hope that the week will pass by so quickly. Oh.. I haven't left yet but I am already starting to miss my baby :(

Good thing she'd still be asleep when I leave later. It will be more difficult leaving her awake.

back to school

I'm going back to school!

I took the entrance exam at Ateneo last week and I can't believe I passed. Actually, I even ranked 5th out of 32 examinees. I'll be taking the Regis program, Ateneo's accelerated MBA program, starting next term. I just have to submit some more requirements, enroll on a subject, and I'm good to go!

I actually never thought of pursuing further education as I feel that all of my energies were exhausted already during college days. But now that I'm actually taking it, I can't help but to feel really excited. I just hope that it won't take too much of my time away from Caitlyn.

Long Drives

After I got married, I didn’t really have much chance to drive. I only get my hands on the steering wheel occasionally when my husband is too drunk to drive, when he’s out of the country, or when he’s off from work. And these are all just 20 to 30mins drive running on 60kph max!

Last Saturday though, I needed to drive up north for some work related activity. I found driving at EDSA more challenging than driving 130kph to catch up in our convoy. I had fun but got really tired after.

I really miss long drives. The longest drive I’ve ever done was from Sydney to Gold Coast, 12hrs straight without sleep! That was very tiring; I actually got sick the whole week after that. I think doing that was crazy and I don’t think I’ll ever do that again. Or will I?
