I think I’m overdue some posts -____-;; I wanted to write about a few things, but either I had no time to write it or I didn’t know how to start. Kinda been a hectic few… months. Real life really takes the ‘life’ out of you sometimes, haha XD
Anyway. I know that I said I didn’t want to talk about the petty things in my life, but somehow I am so annoyed for so long, although I know I shouldn’t be. And yes what I’m about to do is ironic but I feel like I need to get it out 😦
I feel that people complaining about their jobs but doing NOTHING about it are stupid. They say it sucks, it makes them lash out at innocent bystanders trying as hard as they can to be light and happy despite the whole situation, but they stay day after day, complaining and disrupting peace (and lashing out again). They complain they’re still working on the holidays, that they somehow forgot about the holidays due to work and that they’re unhealthy and unhappy because of their job. Quit for Pete’s sake, instead of yelling at everyone! I know there are some circumstances that make them unable to quit their job, but then why did they sign that contract? I’m pretty sure they did that knowingly and willingly, so just suck it up! If they felt forced to sign, that’s their problem for not being able to decide what they need for yourself or foreseeing how they would feel after that contract. But all that doesn’t give them right nor reason to lash out at everybody. Nothing does. And they stand up straight like that like they didn’t hurt someone because of their words and actions. True, I am not one that buries the hatchet easily, but who would be so forgiving if that particular someone TELLS you to help them (mind you, it was NOT asking) and then YELLS at you when you ask them about it. And they’re not even the boss. Only just because they feel like they’re the only ones suffering.
That aside, there is that other person at work, who only wants to do THEIR share of the work. Hell, less than that. Then, they yell at everyone else because they feel it’s unfair that they do ALL the work, when actually, they don’t. And then, they complain that everyone else is incompetent. After that, they go around bragging to everyone that they’re proud having their bosses wrapped around their finger. Why? Because they yell, accuse and pick fights (yes, plural) all the time with their bosses. What is that?
Worse? Those two types of people becoming close friends (more likely because everyone else is avoiding them. I know I am). Worst? I used to hang out with them as equals, now they like to yell at me and my other co-workers. They just don’t get that I’m (or everyone else) avoiding them because I’m sick of them. I know it’s wrong to sneak around doing things because I don’t want them to join me, but they just ruin the mood! I used to think of them as friends and hoped that they’d snap out of whatever delusion they’re having, on their own. They didn’t. They just grew stronger, angrier, demanding ‘justice’ for all the wrong things. I know perfectly well I am not without fault. But this is ridiculous. Well now, I thank God for giving me prime examples of what NOT to be. I feel so thankful and blessed.
I just feel burdened by the thought that it’s okay, right, to ditch negative friends like these? We don’t have to help everyone we know, right? We’ve got problems of our own, right? I already feel so tired of all the drama, the drama I don’t want or need. You don’t need to be friends with everyone, right? Just friendly is enough, right? I feel so sad.
It’s been a long time since I last blogged. This time I want to show you another nail art! I was inspired by my friend AmadL‘s mug she posted on Path. It was simple but striking, so I decided to make one on my nails. Since I couldn’t decide on just one color, I made a different color with each nail.
Look, here are my right and left hands.
I love looking at them, do you like them too?
It’s been a week since my aunt passed away.
I know you’re not supposed to have favorites in a family, but it was very hard to not like her. Not everything she says is well thought, but I can promise you that it’s all from the heart. I think the people who knew her would agree that she was the life of the party.
So when I heard the news, I could never process that she was really, really gone. Like, gone, gone. Even now, it still feels surreal.
I kept on hoping that she would pop out from a room, greeting us all with twinkling eyes.
I am the type of person that is easily forgotten by everyone. Usually people pass me by, and go fawn over my pretty cousins. Not my aunt. I feel so happy that she goes around everywhere bragging about me, telling everyone about my seemingly clever brain that got me a scholarship to Japan. Or about my seemingly wonderful job that got me a two week free trip to Europe and training in Japan. Heck, she even noticed the art on my nails. She said they were so pretty. She made everyone feel special.
That day, Mom told me to stay and house sit, while everyone else went to the funeral. I was a little relieved. The words “coming home without you” just kept going through my brain. Even now, I cry a little every time the thought of her pass through my mind. And there were so many photographs of her smiling so prettily.
I wish she’d come back. Tell us it was just a bad joke.
I got early to work today, but still couldn’t get anything done anyway due to some system outage. So I thought it would be better for me to post some nail art.
This was actually last week’s nail art, but since I was so swamped with work, I couldn’t post it. I actually did another nail art before this, and it was dots too. Since I still wanted to play with my dotter, this happened. For the base, I used OPI’s Alpine Snow. For the dots, I used OPI’s I Theodora You (pale pink, currently my favorite sheer pink), OPI’s Elephantastic Pink (the dark pink, the first OPI I ever bought) and Revlon’s Pink Lingerie (the bubble gum pink, which I use so much too).
I love all the pink shades on their own, but I think this combo looks sweet and cute. What do you think?
