last Sunday of August

Where did time go? In a few more days we’re officially starting the “ber” months. I feel like it was just January yesterday.

Let’s get to this entry so I could end my extended Sunday and sleep.

CURRENTLY

Reading Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin. I finally scored a copy in Bookends the last time I went to Baguio. If you’ve read my previous Sunday Currently entries (very few since I only do this every last Sunday of the month), I’ve been looking for a cheap copy I could buy. I know, it’s not the end of the year yet but I can feel it in my bones, I will not finish this series this year. Meaning, the TV adaptation has to wait.

Writing this entry. A few reviews, if I’ll feel focused and inspired to write those. Rest and mobile games and Instagram are all I do lately.

Listening to the music of Masha and the Bear. The little girl loves to watch that show and I have serious LSS since I came home.

Watching Love in the Moonlight. I started watching this last weekend. I’m half way through it but I got sidetracked with work and baby sitting. I also got back to watching the latest episodes of Teen Wolf which is now on its last season. It’s the last time I’ll see Tyler Posey’s abs. Huhu.

Thinking of what I want to do for the last quarter of the year, of my obligations, of my plans and just about everything that I shouldn’t be thinking right now because I need to sleep. I’m also thinking of what books to read and the workload I’ll get back  to after my long weekend and how the hell am I going to finish that in 3 days when I feel so lazy in the office all the freaking time.

Smelling the home made burger patty I cooked for dinner today.

Wishing for a smoother last quarter of 2017. The last 3 were a pain in the ass, in the pocket and in the head. I wish the universe will give me a break and let me breath before I go and face what it will throw my face in the next months. If it’s a new job opportunity in Baguio, I would gladly embrace it.

Hoping for a lateral transfer this year. I honestly do not want to leave the company where I’m working now. A year shy from celebrating my 10th year with them, I am not yet loosing hope over the chance that I’ll get to work at the Baguio site of this company. Although, sometimes I feel like my only options are to resign, relocate and start from scratch. I just hope I’ll be patient enough to wait for that lateral transfer because those options are not very wise right now.

Wearing sleepwear since I’m about to sleep.

Needing TLC and an out of town trip. My trips to Baguio and Pangasinan are not counted. I need vitamin sea! Who would want to go to the beach on this rainy season, right? Me.

Feeling overwhelmed, worried and scared. A lot of things had happened and is still happening in my life lately. It’s still a long way for everything to fall into place. I also have to think of my health since I am not getting any younger and the health issues I have will not go away. Better eat and live healthy, though the eating part is a work in progress. Easier said that done, eh.

Hay. Can September be a little nicer and easier, please?

i hate you George

Dear George,

I don’t know what GoT into me, why I ever decided to read your first book. It took me years dodging your books. I should have continued doing that because look where it GoT me, frustrated over the characters you killed. I don’t have to warn others that this letter contain spoilers since I am so late in reading this. I know majority have watched the series and are now waiting for Season 7 so I’ll just lay everything out in the open.

I was hoping against all hope that you’ll spare Ned’s life. Even at the very end, I was hoping for some miracle but you fvcking killed that hope when you allowed Jeoff to cut off his head. I shouldn’t have hoped, my heart bled when you let Lady died, so what’s there to be shocked about, right? I should have braised myself for the worst. I am so thankful I haven’t watched the complete series yet because I know I wouldn’t be able to take how graphic and gruesome the deaths of every character you killed. I do have a general idea of how they looked like, thanks to google, and I did watch until episode 2 of Season 1.

It’s not that I don’t like your book. I did. The deaths just did not sit well with me. I enjoyed how you wrote the book; I liked getting into the heads of the characters. I even understood how Tyrion thinks compared to how he was portrayed in the series. It took me 3 months to finish the first book and I even have a plan of reading all 5 books this year which I don’t think is possible but I’m not giving up on it yet.

You are an awesome writer George and GoT deserves a five star rating but I only gave it three. I know you’ll be killing more and more and more in the coming books so I’ll “try” to get my head around that and also try not to get emotionally invested to any of the characters.

Oh, if I haven’t stressed it yet—

FVCK YOU.

wl, a.

P.S Can somebody lend me the second book, please? I don’t want to read in my kindle. It’s so frustrating reading in a device when there are times you want to slam down the book. I don’t have the budget of getting a new kindle so better not to read George R.R. Martin books on devices that can break. Don’t worry, I won’t hurl it across the room or wherever. I’ll take good care of it. Belle’s book is still in one piece, I think.

Rollie, can we meet one of these days so I can borrow books three to five, please?
