day 2260 – girls catchup

long overdue catchup for the girls. even though we’re all in different companies now, we’re still able to maintain connection. i think not being in the same departments made it more fun when sharing the information we know. sometimes when i hear what they say about their new job, it makes me wonder why i’m still at this company. i don’t necessary care for the spotlight, but it’s having my production goes unnoticed and often taken for granted

day 2156 – shower squad

homemade wings, pizza and charcuteries board to go with tnt bought matcha popiscles for the shower squad. we had lots of catching up to do after not having hung out for over four weeks. we ate and talked, ate some more and talked some more before playing several rounds of taboo. the night didn’t end until 1:30am because we had so much to do talk about. this was a good night and wish it would happen more often

day 2129 – antwerp day

took the train early to another city and made an antwerp day trip. for the first couple hours, it was a lot of walking around looking at a combination of cathedrals, churches, canals and statues. just before rushing for the train back to brussels, we hit up the chocolate nation tour. it was a very neat place because there i learned about the origin of chocolate, its significance and differences, took a bunch of pretty pictures and even got a chance to taste test a few types. got back to brussels for a nice dinner out catching up with an ex-coworker. she took time to show us around the city and showed us that food trucks are where the best waffles are at

day 2113 – catchup time

it’s probably my fault that some hangouts happen less frequently than it should. finally catching up with a long time highschool friend over some food. it was good to just chat and download all the things that’s gone by. i realize all she wanted to do was to treat me to a meal for my birthday. i really do cherish that so much of our lives has changed, but our friendship hasn’t. maybe next time we can get a few of the core people out all at once

day 2027 – sharetea

proud to be using my jazen jar and straw to qualify for zero waste. had a great conversation while catching up with friend and ex-coworker over an okinawa pearl bubble tea. we got the down low on all the things that happened and things that’s been brewing for a long time. unfortunately we ran out of time because i had to take off for work and weren’t able to get through all the things we wanted to chat about. something worth doing more frequently so we stay up to date

day 1759 – homework latteĀ 

this evening is all about homeworking while holding onto my cup of latte. i could be having fun on friday night, but i chose to do some catch up work at forty ninth parallel. there’s never enough time for all the things i must get done and the extra stress is noticeably getting to me this week. two more sleeps of home alone before my family fly back from their europe trip. it sure seems like they’re having a good time, but my mom still checks in to make sure i’m doing okay

day 1575 – long talks

being filled in the world of politics over some sushi to get the latest news. i have a better picture of what’s going on the the political world but that doesn’t change the position i’m in. after this talk, it reassures me the approach i’ve been taking is the correct one. it helps to know these things; i take these advice with a grain of salt and will give it some careful thoughts in the next little while
